When it comes to giving glory to God, God seems to focus quite a bit on the beast that is Babylon praising God in the Day of Judgment. Christ is revealed in judgment as He uses the unsaved church to destroy itself. On the salvation side, Christ is the Glory of God as He redeems the Elect from Babylon. However, God is also glorified through the judgment that He executes.
