SLIDES - Isaiah Class 16 (5.2B) The Babylon Umbrella (Theme 4)
Many In Stock
Laying a foundation for the Harlot Babylon in Isaiah, 1 Nephi, Daniel and Revelation, we then proceed to look closely at Isaiah's ten "Oracles against the Nations" in chapters 13–23—which are juxtaposed with the “Fall of Babylon” in Chapter 47. Isaiah gives us a fascinating picture of endtime Babylon using types, shadows, and rhetorical linking!
Highlights include Clean and Unclean Animal charts; a pictorial overview of the chiastic parallels in John’s Revelation; the beasts of Daniel and John and some of their word links; Pharaoh of Egypt as a dragon; Daniel’s little horn; the literary structures in Revelation 13 (the “death-stroke”); Daniel’s Hour of Judgment Timeline; wheat, tares, and figs; the “Rocks Cry Out!”; Zechariah 14:12 as a nuclear blast description; the onset of ALL the “labors” (Jehovah’s, Zion’s, the Woman who brings forth a man child, Babylon’s, and the Earth’s Inhabitants) during the Day of the Lord—called the “birth pangs of the Messiah”; the Sea of Glass; vials/bowls 6 & 7; and the Fall of “Greater” Babylon at Armageddon.
