"I will execute judgment on him with plague and bloodshed; I will pour down torrents of rain, hailstones and burning sulfur on him and on his troops and on the many nations with him. And so I will show my greatness and my holiness, and I will make myself known in the sight of many nations. Then they will know that I Am God."

Isn't the US - "the whore of Babylon"/"Mystery Babylon" - receiving its judgment? The 2nd definition of 'Babylon' is "any city that lacks morality and where greed and excess luxury rules". Two major storms hitting New York City in two years. Hurricane Sandy & Sandy Hook Elementary. Over 50% of US is in drought. Huge Govt deficit that continues to grow out of control. The War In Afganhistan is lost. The US is 25th globally in math & science. Etc.

We've also seen the literal "destruction of Babylon" (Rev Ch 14, 16, 17, 18) with the War In Iraq and the US & Polish troops greatly harming the archaeological site of the ancient ruins of Babylon 50 miles south of Baghdad in 2003 (google that).

Revelations 17 is one of the more difficult chapters of the bible. I'm not sure if any man grasps the full meaning of it yet. God may not have intended we understand every detail of it yet.

What Revelations does say is that before God's 7 vials of final judgement of the earth and Jesus stopping the final war as "King of Kings" there will be a revived roman empire which persecutes nations for the last 42 months. 10 prime ministers of western Europe will surrender all their authority to the anti-christ then he will take a seat in the "holy place" Daniel spoke of which is often said to be a new jewish temple on Mt. Moriah in Jerusalem. I also wonder if this "holy place" could be the empty shell of the Vatican after the true catholic believers have been raptured.

Matthew 24 is more straightforward. When the gospel is preached in every nation, real Christians will be hated and plotted against, false teachers and false doctrine will increase, and the love of many shall wax cold. This is the part of prophecy happening in the USA. I don't doubt we are going through a judgement or "sifting" of some kind.

Are you referring to the "7 Seals" & "4 Horsemen"? Ronald(6) Wilson(6) Reagan(6) liked to ride a horse and be photographed doing it.

Babylon...

I looked into the word and discovered that it is a very interesting Word.

Interesting in that there is a God, called "On"
Priests of On are mentioned in the OT, who visited Abraham when they were in Egypt.
EL is the Word that means God.
Then the God ElyON is mentioned in Psalm 91: He that dwelleth in the secret place of Elyon
The Holy Mount of God in Jerusalem is Zion - or more Zi-On
Bab is the word that means GATE.
The Temple in Jerusalem has some gates with names that begin with "Bab-"
BAB -EL ON => Gate to the God ON ??
I think there is something there to be researched and discovered.
Is the Gate of God a physical place, like Iraq or the USA? Is there a Gate of God inside of us?

I whore of Babylon I think - is Lilith
She rides on the Beast (Azazel)

Perhaps it is worth finding out who Lilith and Azazel is?

RL,

Do you have a dictionary? Please use it and look up 'Babylon'. Do you have a Bible? Please read The Revelation Chapters 14, 16, 17, and all of 18 and concentrate on the use of "Babylon" there.

Tell us all about it Brad. And please, we don't need a dictionary to understand the Bible. Thanks.

Good evening,

The "whore of Babylon" cannot possibly be receiving her judgement at this time, nor can it possibly be the US. Brad, after my off-forum answer you understand why - so would you like to take the credit and explain the reason why?

Dear Brad

The Book of Revelation in the Bible is a massive fabrication. I read the Essene book of Revelation, which predates the Biblical book of Revelation and it was evident how much of the Essene book of Rev found its way into this fabrication/Forgery.
So I dont take much of the NT to heart, as most of it is fabrication anyway. The OT still has much validity due to the Kabbalistic content IF YOU ARE willing to use your STRONGS Concordance and look at the Hebrew translations for the Kabbalistic content. In the English translations, the Kabbalistic content has been removed and erased, sadly.

OMG - how can anyone take the Brad dude seriously? His ignorance is only exceeded by his arrogance!
