Two cities in the book of Revelation stand out in bold relief as centers of two opposing powers: the cities of Jerusalem and Babylon. The two opposing powers represent the powers of good and evil. A failure to understand these important facts will automatically determine the position taken as to the messages of Armageddon.

In the prophecies we see depicted the same everlasting gospel and the same old counterfeit system of religion. The state of corruption and error that in the last days would exist in the religious world was presented to the prophet in the vision of Babylon, "that great city" which reigneth over the kings of the earth. There can be no compromise between the two styles of worship. The departure from truth among the churches of Christendom is specifically referred to as Babylon, but in its broadest sense, all in rebellion against God are included in Babylon, Satan's kingdom.
