The day is soon coming when the world will be ruled from Jerusalem, albeit, for a short time.
There is one last world kingdom, the Seventh world kingdom headed by two wicked kings to come at the end of time (Daniel 8:23–24) (Daniel 11:36–37) who will rule from Jerusalem. The seventh king will be the antichrist who will be one ruler over this whole earth (Daniel 7:4–6) (Revelation 17:10). The The eighth being the devil, aka, Satan (Matthew 24:15) (Luke 21:20) (2 Thessalonians 2:3–4) (Revelation 17:11).
Many people overlook the fact that in John’s vision of the end of time, the holy city, the great city, Jerusalem is spiritually called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord Jesus was crucified (Revelation 11:8).
“And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:
“And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH” (Revelation 17:4-5).
“And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration. And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns.
The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is” (Revelation 17:6-8).
“And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth. And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space” (Revelation 17:9-10).
“And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition” (Revelation 17:11).
“And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth” (Revelation 17:18).
