Vision Six. (Rev. 17-19) Subject: God’s Judgment over the World System.
In light of the inevitable destruction of the world system with all its sin industries, we should pay attention how we invest our time, carefully evaluating which works are destined to be “burned up.” The world system consists of a matrix of deceptive ideas and mind-sets, combined with a vortex of power, pulling people to their destruction. Elements portrayed: a spiritual power center, a secular government, kings, and humanly contrived religion. God’s command: “Come out from them, my people.” Trying to be well-adjusted in this world is a big mistake. Jesus warns us specifically to be on our guard against deception. We have no way of evaluating which of our thoughts are deceptive except by comparing with the word of God.
