This study looks at the book of Revelation from the perspective of Man, His Nature and Destiny which means the lessons will look at the judgments revealed in revelation as it pertains to man. Whether or not the perspective of eternal torment for the lost is accurate as opposed to just perishing with the appropriate amount of punishment. This study is best followed by the Man, His Nature and Destiny to provide the context of how by looking at Revelation we may expand our understanding of Man's destiny.
The lesson on October 2, 2016 was part 36 of "The Apocalypse" study. This lesson continued into chapter 17 of Revelation and takes time to study Babylon. Traditionally, the Babylon of Revelation 17 has been taught that it is symbolizing Rome and the Catholic church, where the Pope is revealed at the Anti-Christ that fulfills the phophetic content of Babylon. This lesson rejects that tradition and looks at Babylon as an actual city located in the Middle East. The scripture reading was from Isaiah 13:19-22 KJV
