Babylon and the New Jerusalem
Diabolis could picture his kingdom on earth and it was perfect. He was anxious to continue his discourse. Operation Takeover involved counterfeiting Jesus Christ, Moses, Elijah, heavenly angels, righteous people, God’s kingdom and His beautiful capital city, the New Jerusalem. Today he would explain to his demon council the details of the two kingdoms. With narrowed eyes and firmly set jaw he began.
“The Great Tribulation will begin soon and will last a little over 3 ½ years. During this time we will launch Operation Takeover and set up a worldwide kingdom on earth called Babylon.
“God, our archenemy, will be completing His worldwide kingdom called the New Jerusalem. It will not be a visible kingdom. People will join it by believing in Jesus and by repentance and it will only be visible through the eye of faith. Its king – Jesus Christ, and its capital city – the New Jerusalem, will both be located in heaven.
Babylon - kingdom on earth
“Our kingdom, Babylon, will be located on earth and will be visible. I will be the king. I will look like Jesus and people will believe I am Jesus. People will join Babylon by worshiping me or my giant gold serpent image. They will also be allowed to join by worshiping my image on television or the internet or any of the small gold serpent images.
“During these few years each of the 6.4 billion people on earth will have to choose which kingdom they wish to join. The deciding issue will be worship. If they worship Jesus Christ as described by His ten commandments they will belong to His invisible kingdom. If they worship me – Satan, the beast, the antichrist – they will be part of Babylon. Those who worship me will obey my laws.
“Each kingdom will have the following:
- Capital City (the queen)
- Subjects, children, citizens
- Two prophets
Diabolis paused and straightened his head with dignity. He spoke in a firm, authoritative manner, “Your assignment is to memorize and understand every detail of these two kingdoms. People must believe that Babylon is God’s kingdom. Our counterfeit must be perfect.
“Please note that God says the people in Babylon will die eternally at the close of the 1,000 years. This part we will change. We will not allow that to happen.”
