Beauty and the Beast | Sunday Message

When the Book of Revelation introduces us to Babylon, the author, John, describes more than a geographical location. It’s a word picture for a whole, worldly kingdom. In this Sunday message,, get a glimpse of the ultimate fight between good and evil. Listen in as Pastor Greg Laurie contrasts the glory of the church with a place called Babylon.


  1. The Church is not on Earth during the Tribulation Period, but in Heaven.
  2. The rapture happens before the Tribulation; the Second Coming is at the end of the Tribulation.
  3. God will not judge Christians with Non-Christians.

The Christian’s appointment is to be caught up with Christ.

The appointment of the world is for “The Day of the Lord” and judgment.

In Revelation, the word Babylon is a point of reference for evil.

The traits of Babylon can be seen in a lifestyle of pride, sensuality and idolatry.

Anything that takes the place of God.

Religion is man’s attempt to reach God; Christianity is God’s attempt to reach man.

Babylon was the beginning of humanism.

“People think that when they do not believe in God, they believe in nothing, but the fact is, they will believe in anything.” —G. K. Chesterton

Babylon looks good on the outside but is dead on the inside.

Sin cannot win and faith cannot fail.

Put your hope in God.

  1. We celebrate because the power of God has finally vanquished evil.
  2. We rejoice because the Lord is reigning.
  3. We celebrate because the Marriage Supper of the Lamb has come.

We have two cities to choose from: The City of Man or the City of God.

Babylon or the New Jerusalem.
