Mystery Babylon Identified
Iran and Saudi Arabia have no diplomatic relations following an attack on the Saudi Embassy in Tehran in 2016. Relations are strained over the interpretations of Islam, leadership of the Islamic world, oil export policy and relations with the United States and other Western countries.
Saudi Arabia is a right-wing conservative Islamic kingdom, with close ties with the United States and the United Kingdom. Iran is anti-Western, with close ties to Russia, China and Cuba.
Iran accuses Saudi Arabia of being an agent of the US in the Persian Gulf region, representing US interests rather than Islam.
Saudi Arabia is concerned by Iran's consistent desire to export its revolution across the Persian Gulf region, in addition to Iran's nuclear program. All differences boil down to who should be the driving force behind the Islamic religion in the future. including the Organization of the Islamic World Congress, the Muslim World League, and the Organization of the Islamic Conference.
In 1987 Khomeini declared that “these vile and ungodly Wahhabis, are like daggers which have always pierced the heart of the Muslims from the back,” and announced that Mecca was in the hands of “a band of heretics.” Relations have become even more strained over the following several decades. Leading Sunni and Shi'ite Clerics in both the countries deemed each other's religious beliefs as incorrect for decades. On 5 June 2010, King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia told the Minister of France that: "There are two countries in the world that do not deserve to exist: Iran and Israel." Saudi Arabia has long looked to the United States for protection against Iran. A key point as it concerns the subject of Mystery Babylon and it's destruction.
Because Mystery Babylon is Mecca, the center of Islam.
In November 2010, Wikileaks disclosed various confidential documents pertaining to the US and its allies which revealed that King Abdullah urged the US to attack Iran to destroy its nuclear weapons program. According to Scripture, Iran will destroy Mecca in one day.
The worship of Ishtar originated from Arabia, not the United States, or Rome, or modern day Iraq. It is said Rome is “the city of seven hills." But Scripture never said “city of seven hills”. And "hills" represents Kingdoms. Iran has missile launch sites aimed in the direction of Saudi Arabia and Qatar. Iran (biblical Elam) must destroy Arabia. In Isaiah 21:9, Isaiah prophesies against Babylon as does Revelation 18:1-2 and Revelation 14:8: “Babylon is fallen, is fallen." “The burden against Dumah” (Isaiah 21:11). “The burden against Arabia” (Isaiah 21:13). “All the glory of Kedar will fail” (Isaiah 21:16). These are all in Arabia, which is destroyed by Iran “Elam” (Isaiah 21:2). Why is the word “Arabia” in Isaiah 21 so ignored?
“And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.” (Genesis 11:4). Mecca is both a “city” and a “tower."
Ask an Arab today, “where is Mount Babel?” and he will tell you that it is in Mecca. Babel has been built in Mecca. There are 7 massive building towers on top of it. The largest modern building structure in the world they call “The Towers Of The House." This is reminicscent to the “7 Towers of Light” in ancient Babel, that overlooks the Ka’ba, Islam’s holiest place. Isaiah's mention of Kedar, Tema, Dedan and Dumah are all in Saudi Arabia near Yathrib (Medina), which is known today as “Dumat el-Jandal.” Dumah, one of the sons of Ishmael, is also associated with Edom and Seir in Isaiah 21:11. And most scholars agree that Kedar, Ishmael’s son, is the line from which Muhammad descended.
Muslims recognize Isaiah 21:14-15 as the story of Muhammad, when the Muslims emigrated from Mecca to Medina (Tema) in which they were fed and rescued from the sword. “No Arab will pitch his tent there, no shepherd will rest his flocks there” (Isaiah 13:20). Arabs pitch tents in Arabia, not Rome or the United States. The Last-Days Babylon will be destroyed.
Look at Mecca on any map and you will see that it sits near the Red Sea. Some may object, saying that Jeremiah 49 is speaking about Edom, which was primarily located in modern day Jordan. Yet, in Ezekiel 25, “Edom” stretches from Teman (Yemen) to Dedan (Saudi Arabia)” (v. 13). Greater Edom included all of the west coast of the Arabian Peninsula. This judgment is not against Rome but “Edom” which extends from Teman to Dedan:
“Thus Says the Lord GOD; ‘Because that Edom hath dealt against the house of Judah by taking vengeance, and hath greatly offended, and revenged himself upon them. ‘Therefore thus Says the Lord GOD; ‘I will also stretch out mine hand upon Edom, and will cutt off man and beast from it; and I will make it desolate from Teman; and they of Dedan shall fall by the sword’” (Ezekiel 25:12-13).
In verse 4 a warning is given to My people (Christians) to come out of her before she is destroyed. And in verse 24 it speaks of the blood of the prophets and saints that have been slain in her. This obviously must refer to the Hebrew or Jewish prophets and to Christians. Even today Christians are being beheaded and blood spilled in the name of Islam just because they are Christians. Revelation 20:4 refers to those Christians who had been beheaded for their testimony of Jesus. 9/11 changed the world prophetically speaking, and is directly related to the question of this identity of Mystery Babylon the Great.
They have said, “Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation, that the name of Israel may be remembered no more.” For they have consulted together with one consent; They form a confederacy against You: The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites; Moab and the Hagrites; Gebal, Ammon, and Amalek; Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre; Assyria also has joined with them; They have helped the children of Lot. Psalm 83:4-8. In today's world this could describe a confederacy of Islamic nations conspiring to defeat Israel.
In Isaiah 45:18, the LORD of the Bible says, “I am the LORD, and there is no other.” The woman riding the beast is a false god who tries to replace the God of the Bible as the only God of the universe. Islam is the only religion whose god Allah was a pagan moon-god in pre-Islamic times. Pagan moon-god Allah was represented by the biggest rock in Kaaba. With the invention of Islam, Muhammad proclaimed that this same Allah is the only “god” of the universe. “There is no god but Allah, and Muhammad is his prophet.”
This Mystery Babylon the Great is not actual ancient Babylon, Rome, or the United States, but the Mysterious “GREAT” Babylon is Mecca, a spiritual center of Islam.
Iran (biblical Elam) must destroy Arabia. In Isaiah 21:9, Isaiah levels a prophetic oracle against Babylon using the same announcement in Revelation 18:1-2 and Revelation 14:8: “Babylon is fallen, is fallen”: “The burden against Dumah” (Isaiah 21:11) “The burden against Arabia” (Isaiah 21:13) “All the glory of Kedar will fail” (Isaiah 21:16).These are all in Arabia, which is destroyed by Iran “Elam” (Isaiah 21:2). All of the literal references in Scripture are in Arabia.
History records that the worship of Ishtar “Kilili”, or “Queen of Harlots” originated from Arabia, not Rome. In fact, when Muslims roam roundabout the black stone, it is a throwback to the worship of Ishtar, whom they called Athtar and Allat. Everything that the harlot is described it fits the Ka’ba; dress, pearls, jewels, gold, silver and even the blasphemies etched in silver threads with golden inlays across her attire. Just the doors of the Ka’ba alone has 280 kilograms of pure gold.
The reference to a prostitute in Revelation 17 regarding the “Whore of Babylon” is no coincidence: “And the woman (whore) was arrayed in purple and scarlet color" resemblng the near copulating with the Ka’ba’s Black Stone, which historically was dedicated to Aphrodite, the prostitute goddess that was called “Aphrodite Porne” (Aphrodite the Prostitute), “the goddess adorned in purple”, similar to the depictions given in Revelation 17:4, which the Ka’ba has a scarlet-colored inner garment. Furthermore, it is impossible to even consider that Isaiah 21 was referring to an historic battle between Persia and ancient Babylon since the multiple references throughout are not connected to ancient Iraq but to Kedar, Tema, Dedan and Dumah, which are all in Saudi Arabia near Yathrib (Medina), and today is known as “Dumat el-Jandal.”
Dumah, one of the sons of Ishmael, is also associated with Edom and Seir in Isaiah 21:11. It is believed by many that Kedar, Ishmael’s son, is the line from which Muhammad descended. Even Muslims recognize when they read Isaiah 21, they see Isaiah 21:14-15 as the story of Muhammad when the Muslims emigrated from Mecca to Medina.
The Bible depicts that in this time, it will not be like the time when Muhammad fled; all Arabia – including the Glory of Kedar (Mecca) – will be destroyed. “No Arab will pitch his tent there, no shepherd will rest his flocks there” (Isaiah 13:20) Arabs pitch tents in Arabia, not Rome.
Then we have the Red Sea: “The earth is moved at the noise of their fall, at the cry the noise thereof was heard in the Red sea.” (Jeremiah 49:21)The Red Sea is a geographic indicator as to where the Last-Days Babylon will be located. Look at Mecca on any map and you will see that it sits near the Red Sea. Some may object, saying that Jeremiah 49 is speaking about Edom, which was primarily located in modern day Jordan. Yet, in Ezekiel 25, “Edom” stretches from Teman (Yemen) to Dedan (Saudi Arabia).". Greater Edom included all of the west coast of the Arabian Peninsula.
I am surprised at the number of Christians today who fail to recognize the role Islam plays in end times prophecy, given the day the world changed forever, prophetically speaking, on 9/11. When the Antichrist system of Scripture, including the Man of Sin, has direct ties to Islam.
It is no surprise that Iran is focused on Saudi Arabia, since the Bible predicted that the harlot is destroyed by the beast she rides, that is, the nations she deceived with her spiritual harlotry—Islam.
