The Mystery About Babylon Three
Continuing The Description Of Babylon The Great
Lets Look At This In The Book Of Revelation:
This description given here in Revelation is of a nation that is the center of trade market for the world, this is one the most amazing prophecy’s in the Bible. In Revelation when it refers to the whore, this is always talking about Babylon The Great, most Bible Scholars will agree on this issue, and that the prophecy of her destruction (End Time Babylon) has not come to pass ….. yet.
11 And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more:
12 The merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble,
13 And cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men.
14 And the fruits that thy soul lusted after are departed from thee, and all things which were dainty and goodly are departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more at all. KJV
Who is Greatest Purchasing Country In The World?: 11-14?
When Babylon The Great is destroyed, these other countries who witnessed Babylon’s destruction are worried about the economic collapse of the world. They are worried because the Babylon was the biggest purchaser of all there goods. And that this destruction will come upon them because they were tied heavily to Babylon, and was Babylon’s ally. This is actually the exact point the Anti Christ steps into power, to calm the World Down. When this happens, he will call an emergency meeting with Ten Nations of the European Union. The meeting will be in the revived Roman Empire, the European Union.
This next verse is huge, concerning “which Babylon” Jeremiah is prophesying about!
33 For thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; The daughter of Babylon is like a threshingfloor, it is time to thresh her: yet a little while, and the time of her harvest shall come. KJV
In the above verse in Jeremiah 51:33 is indicating that there was a First Babylon. Now in the next verses this really starts to tie together that Jeremiah Chapter’s 50 and 51 and the prophecy in the book of Revelations were the same place.
17:1 And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters: KJV
13 O thou that dwellest upon many waters, abundant in treasures, thine end is come, and the measure of thy covetousness. KJV
Now in Rev. 17:1 there are two things I want you to see here, the term Great Whore, as we spoke about further back in this lesson, is always referring to Babylon The Great.
Then in Revelations and in Jeremiah it gives a description of the landscape. The description that Babylon The Great sits on many waters. Now the word (many) let us go to the Hebrew.
rab (rab); by contracted from OT:7231; abundant (in quantity, size, age, number, rank, quality):
KJV meaning;-(in) abound (-undance, -ant, -antly), captain, elder, enough, exceedingly, full, great (-ly, man, one), increase, long (enough, [time]), (do, have) many (-ifold, things, a time), ([ship-]) master, mighty, more, (too, very) much, multiply (-tude), officer, often [-times], plenteous, populous, prince, process [of time], suffice (-lent).
And in the Greek
polus (pol-oos’); including the forms from the alternate pollos; (singular) much (in any respect) or (plural) many; neuter (singular) as adverbial, largely; neuter (plural) as adverb or noun often, mostly, largely:
KJV-abundant, + altogether, common, + far (passed, spent), (+be of a) great (age, deal, -ly, while), long, many, much, oft (-en [-times]), plenteous, sore, straitly. Compare NT:4118, NT:4119.
Now this is indicating that Babylon The Great is surrounded by water, or a land that sits on many waters just like it says. Iraq borders no water in abundance. Now I have made a case against Iraq being Babylon the Great. So if it is not Iraq, who is it? Who and what country must fit ALL THE DESCRIPTIONS, so I will leave this decision to the reader.
Now we are going to get into the Destruction Of Babylon The Great…And maybe tie in another event or two.
