Scripture Union Daily Guide 21st September 2022 Devotional for Wednesday

TOPIC: The Lamb will overcome them

OPENING PRAYER: Dear Lord, I request that you help me to encounter you as I meditate on your word.

SCRIPTURE: Revelations 17:1‐18

Scripture Union Daily Guide 21st September 2022 MESSAGE

The great prostitute, who sits on many waters (vs.1‐5) is Babylon, the great city that rules over the kings of the earth (v.18). It will be punished (read v.16 and Jeremiah 51:12‐13)! But why? The ancient Babylon was the political, commercial, and religious centre of a world empire and was noted for its luxury and moral decadence. Babylon, therefore, typifies the proud, corrupt and filthy world system, which is always detestable to the holy God.

How far worse and offensive to God, is our generation which legalises/institutionalises every lifestyle that is against God! The woman was drunk with the blood of the saints who bore testimony to Jesus (v.6). Is it any different in our cities and villages today where in their hunt for the blood of Christians, they slaughter whole villagers and bomb churches/buses?

Leaders of nations and commanders of terrorist groups come up and fade away, and new ones come up with more complex strategies, wielding so much power and influence that seem to defy human solutions (vs.7‐8). However, their destruction will come speedily (v.11). Leaders of nations continue to build alliances against Jesus and His gospel, but the Lamb will overcome them (vs.12‐14).
