"Beast shall devour the whole earth"; Zech 9:10 He will come in peace and his dominion shall be to the ends of the earth.

The Prophet = Mohammad

The Beast = Islam


"Islam literally means “peace” or “submission” to the Will of God, and the Holy Quran"


The Prophet gives his power over to 'The Beast'


IT's HEEEEERRRRRRRRRRRE!

Yes, many people would agree with you.

I tend to vacillate between Islam and EU....

Haven't enough evidence to be 100% certain.

I am going to go through the 21 facts item by item and discuss them.

Item 1 - Dan 8:23

23 And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up.

I suppose there are many ways to interpret this verse.

One is determining who the transgressors are.

Some believe - these are the Israelis...
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 54426955


We also must determine which kingdom this verse is talking about.

The latter time of "their" kingdom - kingdom being a single kingdom.

Is it the Israelis kingdom, or the 4 kings "kingdom"?

If it said kingdoms - it would be obvious...
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 71166005


Are we looking at the same kingdoms of Daniel 7, the 4 beasts who comprise the same kingdom in Rev 13 - the New world order?

Remember, the New World Order already exists before the antichrist comes to power.

Rev 10 And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space.

11 And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.

-----

The antichrist is the 8th king; the 2nd king of the beasts kingdom verse 11.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 71173440


I believe the beast's kingdom is here today.

In Daniel 7:23-24 we learn that this kingdom will devour the entire earth - and we're also told it has 10 horns.

If we go to Revelation 12:3 - we discover the beast of end times is satan, who also has 10 horns.

To me it's pretty obvious satan is now governing on the earth, and in Revelation it says he has but a short time.

Things appear to be moving at warp speed. I suspect the antichrist will be revealed soon.

However, there are still some unfinished prophecies we need to see first.

Revelation 14 says fallen, fallen.

medes against first babylon,

and against the second babylon????

Here is a good description of how it represents the past and future babylon aka mystery babylon:

[link to biblestudycourses.org]

As the people of Judah found themselves being overwhelmed by the invading Assyrian army, the Lord revealed to Isaiah His future victory over the Babylonians. Why? He did so in order to give them the full picture and to provide them with the assurance of God’s ultimate victory.

2. Isaiah 13-14 is depicting the overthrow of the Babylonian empire by the Medes and the Persians (see 13:17 printed below.) But what elements in this description indicate that the victory of the Medes represents the final victory of the Lord over the whole world of sinful mankind? See especially Isaiah 13:4-5,10,13 (printed below)

See, I will stir up the Medes against them; they will not care for silver, nor will they delight in gold. (Isaiah 13:17)

The sound of tumult in the mountains, like that of a great multitude. The sound of the uproar of the kingdoms of the nations as they gather together. Jehovah of hosts is mustering the army for battle. (5) They are coming from a distant country, from the farthest recess of heaven—Jehovah himself and the weapons of his indignation—to destroy the whole land…(10) The stars of heaven and their constellations will not show their light. The rising sun will be darkened, and the moon will not cause its light to shine…(13) Therefore, I will make the heavens tremble, and the earth shall be shaken out of its place by the wrath of Jehovah of hosts on the day his fierce anger is expressed. (Isaiah 13:4-5,10,13)

4. According to Isaiah 14:9-20 (printed below,) what will be the final end of the tyrannical “king of Babylon?” Do you think this passage is speaking about the earthly king of Babylon, or does it look beyond him to tell us the final fate of “the ruler of this world” (i.e.; the devil?)

You Christians have a VERY narrow world-view.

Things only make sense to you, and are relevant to you, if they fit into the prophecies and words of the Bible. You reject anything that does not fit into Biblical prophecies.

Christians would be so easy to manipulate and deceive based on this... They're all looking for an Antichrist that fulfills prophecy, so someone could do evil things/take over the world in a way that has nothing to do with the Bible or Israel... Christians would never notice!

Christians even pride themselves in being "sheep"...

I can only be applied to this generation.

No other generation had the technology required for many of the prophecies to be fulfilled.

For instance:

Jesus said Luke 21/Mathew 24 - when you SEE earthquakes in diverse places.

We are the only generation with this capability.

He said the gospel would be spread to ALL nations. It is now!!

Also that We will SEE the "evil one" in holy place from a field or rooftop.

Only possible to day with smartphones/mobile device.

So - no this could not be applied to any other time in history of the world.

The prophecies in the book of Revelation have been an ongoing thing since God the Father gave them to Jesus who gave them to the angel who gave them to John, who said that these are things "which must shortly come to pass" (Revelation 1:1).

The book of Revelation is a combination history and prophetic trip from the time Jesus ascended to Heaven until our time. There are only a few more events left to happen. We are in the very end of the end times.

Where else do we find mystery of babylon besides the book of Revelations?

Well many think she is the woman in the basket of Zechariah 5:5-11

In the Book of Zechariah, a series of night visions concerning the end times occupies the first six chapters. The one recorded in Zechariah 5 gives us the answer. Zechariah describes being told in this vision to inspect a large basket with a lead cover. An angel tells him the basket contains the iniquity of the people through out the earth. When he looks inside, he sees a woman, who the angel identifies as the symbol of their wickedness. Then two other women, each with the wings of a stork, lift the basket and begin to fly away with it. (According to Lev. 11:19 storks would be able to carry this load of wickedness without becoming defiled by it because they’re already unclean.)

“Where are they taking the basket?” Zechariah asks. “To the country of Babylon,” the angel replies, “To build a house for it.” (Literally to the plains of Shinar, the location in ancient Mesopotamia of the City of Babylon). “When it’s ready, the basket will be set there in its place.” (Zech. 5:5-11). The fact that an actual physical location is given for the basket’s final destination should discourage anyone from spiritualizing that part of the passage. Again we’ve applied Dr. Cooper’s Golden Rule of interpretation.

So Jack Kelly asks:

Where Are They Coming From?

OK, so we know where the basket is going, but where will the stork-women be taking it from? According to many scholars the woman in Zechariah’s basket is the woman from Rev. 17, Rome. At the end of the age, after all its true believers have been whisked away in the Rapture, the religious system currently headquartered in Rome will be returned to Babylon from whence it came, to be absorbed into antichrist’s one world religion. (The End Times Empire will also be absorbed, but into antichrist’s one world government, bringing the world’s political, commercial, and religious power together under one central authority.)

Zechariah’s visions followed Babylon’s defeat by the Persians. And almost from his day to ours, Babylon was a forgotten city. Although Alexander the Great later lived and died there, his plan to dredge a big harbor to lure Persian Gulf boat traffic to Babylon was never implemented.

So Jack Kelly asks:

Where Are They Coming From?

OK, so we know where the basket is going, but where will the stork-women be taking it from? According to many scholars the woman in Zechariah’s basket is the woman from Rev. 17, Rome. At the end of the age, after all its true believers have been whisked away in the Rapture, the religious system currently headquartered in Rome will be returned to Babylon from whence it came, to be absorbed into antichrist’s one world religion. (The End Times Empire will also be absorbed, but into antichrist’s one world government, bringing the world’s political, commercial, and religious power together under one central authority.)

Zechariah’s visions followed Babylon’s defeat by the Persians. And almost from his day to ours, Babylon was a forgotten city. Although Alexander the Great later lived and died there, his plan to dredge a big harbor to lure Persian Gulf boat traffic to Babylon was never implemented.

Seriously though, this is very troubling. The Saudis are explicitly conserving their own resources at home, while exploiting land and water supplies here in America.

Do I agree with Jack that mystery babylon is literal babylon?

No. Why would God call Babylon mystery babylon? Because it is not the physical city Babylon - IMHO..

But I value Jack's work and he methodically gives scriptural evidence for all of his articles.

In this one - he disputes the fact that many say New York City is mystery babylon and logically debunks it.

He concludes:

Babylon Re-born

As I indicated earlier, Saddam Hussein spent millions restoring ancient Babylon into a ceremonial city, perhaps unknowingly preparing it for its final role in world events. Since the Lord is committed to doing all that He’s promised (Isaiah 46:8-11), when the time is right the basket symbolizing the world’s wickedness will be set in the place prepared for it on the plains of Shinar. And then the ancient City of Babylon will once again become the world headquarters for the three great evils of mankind’s design:

Government which enslaves men politically;

Commerce which enslaves us economically; and

Religion which enslaves us spiritually.

Does the City of New York deserve to be judged? Absolutely, along with the rest of America, and most of the world for that matter. But is New York the Mystery Babylon of Rev. 17-18? I hope this article has persuaded you otherwise. But to be sure, become a Berean and search the Scriptures daily to see whether these things be true. (Acts 17:11) 05-16-04

Some people say the woman in the basket is returning to it's origins - the tower of babel.

From Christianbiblereference:

In ancient times, people thought the heavens were not far above the earth. If only they could build a tower to the sky, they could climb up and be like gods themselves. Mankind had once again lost sight of God and become arrogant and self-sufficient.

God, of course, saw this as pure arrogance. He put an end to the people's delusions of being powerful and important like gods.

We may be tempted to think we no longer need to trust and obey God. We may believe our learning, sophistication and technology are all we need to be self-sufficient and guarantee our security. The lesson of the Tower of Babel is that such self-sufficiency is a delusion. History has shown that many nations and their leaders have fallen into the trap of arrogance and self sufficiency. Like Babel, those nations have eventually ended up in ruins.
