The Rise & Fall of Earthly Kingdoms Daniel Two Part 1

Within the books of Daniel and Revelation we find the core issues of the great controversy between Christ and Satan. Satan’s master plan is to set up his kingdom here on the earth as an everlasting kingdom, believing his to be superior to God’s. We read of his desire to exalt himself above the throne of God, sitting in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God, and receiving all worship. In Daniel and Revelation, we see the prophetic, panoramic view of the epic battle between two kingdoms, Jerusalem and Babylon—the kingdom of God and the kingdom of Satan. These books lay out for us the principles of both kingdoms. They reveal the temporary ascendency Satan has gained through his succession of earthly kingdoms, which have adopted his principles of self-exalting, self-serving force. They also reveal the Victor, whose principles of self-lowering, self-sacrificing love will prevail, as demonstrated at the cross and again ultimately through His bride, the church.
