(No private downloads found)
Summary: All through the Bible, the city of Babylon is used as a symbol of spiritual confusion—human pride and rebellion against heaven. In the 21st century, sometimes it seems as if just about anything goes. God warns us again and again not to get attached to the things of this world, because they're not going to last.
Verse: "While he tasted the wine, Belshazzar gave the command to bring the gold and silver vessels which his father Nebuchadnezzar had taken from the temple which had been in Jerusalem, that the king and his lords, his wives, and his concubines might drink from them." —Daniel 5:2
