THE FINAL GENTILE WORLD RULE. In the next 2 chapters of Revelation (17 & 18) we are shown the details of the world system & how God deals with it. This is the last Gentile World Rulership & consists of a Political & Economic aspect, with religion as a motivating force. God calls man`s system Babylon, from the Hebrew word `Babel,` meaning confusion. Historically the city of Babylon was where man attempted to `make a name` for himself. The region was called the land of Shinar & this is where man sought to build a very tall tower to give himself prominence. God however confused their language & thus the name Babylon came to mean confusion. `they found a plain in the land of Shinar....Come let us build a city & a tower ....Let us make a name for ourselves... The Lord confused their language ...& scattered them....` (Gen.10: 2, 4 & 9) Marilyn.
