The King of Babylon is Lucifer and the Antichrist

The King of Babylon is Lucifer and the Antichrist

King of Babylon, Lucifer, Antichrist



While the prophet Daniel establishes Babylon as parallel with the final world power and provides many details of its structure; Jeremiah 51 predicts Babylon’s judgment. He prophesizes against the literal land that once existed, as well as its latter- day counterpart.  As with Tyrus, whose king God identifies as Satan, God refers to the king of Babylon as Lucifer. The Antichrist is also “the King of Babylon.” Isaiah 14:4-6 records his evil rule and conquest:

That you will take up this proverb against the King of Babylon, and say, How the oppressor has ceased! The golden city ceased!  The Lord has broken the staff of the wicked, the scepter of the rulers.  He who struck the people in wrath with a continual stroke, He who ruled the nations in anger, is persecuted and no one hinders.

The passage later identifies Satan as the King of Babylon, and describes Satan’s fall from heaven.  Isaiah 14:12-17 continues:

12 “How you are fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning!
How you are cut down to the ground, You who weakened the nations!
13 For you have said in your heart: ‘I will ascend into heaven,
I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will also sit on the mount of the congregation On the farthest sides of the north;
14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds, I will be like the Most High.’ 15 Yet you shall be brought down to Sheol, To the lowest depths of the Pit.

16 “Those who see you will gaze at you, And consider you, saying:
‘Is this the man who made the earth tremble, Who shook kingdoms,
17 Who made the world as a wilderness And destroyed its cities,
Who did not open the house of his prisoners?’

In Scripture Babylon is dimensional. It is viewed both politically, economically, and spiritually and is represented by the Whore of Babylon. We see the Bible’s depiction drawing on true facts about the ancient Empire and the idolatrous worship that went on there. It’s idolatry infected Israel and drew the Israelites away from the God of Abraham and caused them to sin against Him.

In examining the details about ancient Babylon we can pinpoint the characteristics of the revived Roman empire, which will be the final world empire.  

We also learn the meaning of the evil Whore of Babylon and see her role in Babylon and in the each of the empires that followed and especially in the final revived Roman Empire that will launch the Antichrist.

In the Bible we see the King of Babylon associated with Satan.  As Christ gives Himself for His Bride and joins with her in forever union,  the King of Babylon has his Whore who he later discards and  destroys to exalt himself. We see many contrasts in the Bible of God and Satan.  Along with them opposite God’s blessed land of Israel is Satan’s unholy land of Babylon and as Jesus has the Bride of Christ, the Antichrist has the Whore of Babylon.
