City of Abraham

New Jerusalem will be populated in fulfillment of the promise to Abraham to “bless all nations”  –  Revelation 21:24-22:5 .  The book of  Revelation  concludes with a picture of the immense and glorious city of “ New Jerusalem ” populated by the “ innumerable multitude ” of men redeemed by Jesus from every nation. It represents the fulfillment of the covenant promises to Abraham of “ land ” and “ blessings to all the nations ,” and all “ redeemed by the blood of the Lamb ” - [ Vancouver, BC - Photo by  Daniel Seifried  on Unsplash ].

Persecuting Beast

The “Dragon” and his earthly vassals wage war against the saints, the followers of the Lamb, and not against other nation-states .  The book of  Revelation  portrays the cosmic conflict between Satan and Jesus, one that plays out in the daily struggles of the church. On the earth, the agents of the “ Dragon ” execute his attacks on the Church, especially the “ beast from the sea ,” the “ false prophet ,” and “ Babylon .” This “ war ” is waged by the Devil with deception, compromise, and persecution - [ T-Rex - Photo by  Huang Yingone  on  Unsplash ].
