The Bible study for today, taken from Isaiah 14:16, make some important statements about the coming Antichrist. From the context we learn that Antichrist will be indwelt by Lucifer, and is identified as the king of Babylon.
When this terrifying, deified, horror of a man is killed, the world will gain perspective, realizing that at the end of the day, humans are just humans. They do not have powers that last beyond their grave. Once her soul is committed to hell, there is no need to be afraid of them. While there are alive, they may terrify everyone, and seem unstoppable, but once they’re dead, they’re dead.
The words used in the text make it clear that those that look on the carcass of the king of Babylon will suddenly become aware of what defines being human. They will also gain perspective on the limits of power. It will finally occur to them how important it is to honor God and not those that try to supplant Him. It is the death of the king of Babylon that causes the earth to learn a lesson.
This is not at all a surprise to the child of God who studies the Word of God. God uses everything for the benefit of His children. Not only will the saints of God in heaven rejoice over the destruction of the Man of Sin, there is benefit derived from it. In this situation those still living on the earth, having survived the destruction that the king of Babylon wreaked upon them, and having survived the multiple disasters that God sent to purify and cleanse the earth, will learn an important lesson in leadership and politics. God is not a man. God alone is to be honored. God alone is to be revered. Anyone that claims to have answers outside of God has no right to be in leadership.
