"And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast."  Rev. 17:12
"For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled."  Rev. 17:17

Just as there is an Anti-Christ there also is an Anti-Kingdom. There have been many attempts throughout the Bible.
As Genesis begins to unfold the all-consuming purpose of God in creation to establish a Kingdom in the earth in which He could display His glory in the person of His Son and this display of His glory was to be made to creatures made in His image and therefore capable of appreciating, applauding, and apprehending His glory, the Bible unfolds the drama depicting the movement of God in the accomplishment of that purpose. This kingdom is spiritual, ethical, social, economic, physical, political, and ecclesiastical. Satan’s kingdom alters each of these characteristics in his. He begins to attempt to block God’s movements in the garden with the temptation of the first couple.

It is no wonder that Satan there begins his drama to fulfill the same purpose to accomplish that goal for himself. God’s capital city is Jerusalem while Satan’s capital is Babylon. Its origin was Babel. Its building was to reach heaven where Satan uses a man named Nimrod, mighty in wickedness to begin this Kingdom in Gen. 10:10. The culmination is unfolded in Rev. 17:17; 18:20-21.
