Two Kingdoms

The Kingdom of Babylon and the kingdom of God. In Daniel 2 we read about Nebuchadnezzar's Dream. He forgot his dream, so God sent Daniel to tell the king what the dream was., "This image's head was of fine gold, his breast and his arms of silver, his belly and his thighs of brass, His legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay. Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces. Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshingfloors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth."

Babylon

The destiny of Babylon - the kingdom of men - is described in Revelation 18:2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies. And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities. Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double.

The Tree

Babylon, as a tree, had become the dwelling place of all the hateful birds, a cage, a trap, which all hateful wicked things had accumulated in. That is its condition now. It consists of all the nations of the world, who all are against the ancient Bible hope, all running around with each other in terrible disarray. Followers of God's ancient truth must stay separate from her. She also consists of the false relgion, with the antichrist at its head, in Rome, but with many harlot daughters who ruin people's lives, while calling themselves churches. True believers of the ancient Bible hope will stay as far away from her as possible. Babylon will be destroyed when Christ returns, and her fall will be enormous. Jesus is the little stone from Nebuchadnezzars dream that will smash the image and the wind will blow it away.
