Mystery Babylon revealed and Revelation 18 Fulfilled??

Has Mystery Babylon been revealed?


Mystery Babylon has revealed itself and Revelation 18 has just been fulfilled? But has it? This is a closer look at a very interesting video that I spotted just before Christmas which was left on the side to become an article for the New Year and it is an eye opener. This is part of a new way forward for this website, not just putting out my views and opinions but also taking a look at other reasonably feasible theories from elsewhere that are backed up by scripture.

The topic of Mystery Babylon was covered in a previous article and there are many theories on what Mystery Babylon actually is. The main front runners are
1. New York (or Washington DC) and America
2. The Roman Catholic Church, Vatican and Rome, Italy
3. Mecca and Saudi Arabia and Islam.

Each theory has a solid backing in terms of views and opinions and numbers of people and as I stated in order of likelihood I personally think it is Saudi Arabia, Rome the second and the least likely is the US. That´s just my opinion and scripture seems to back it up, others will disagree and some quite strongly, but I've seen little evidence to suggest otherwise, but this video does raise the odds slightly for the Catholic Church and certainly the opening picture shown above which features in the video is an eye opener.

The On Point Preparedness (OPP) You Tube Channel, a channel that I only bumped into before Christmas, which seems to be very popular and on the rise, produced this video below covering the latest meeting held with the worlds business leaders chaired by the Pope. It smacks of further implementation of the 2030 Agenda mentioned in a previous article which forms the backbone of the New world Order of one currency, one government, one religion, one world with no boundaries, one language, one ID, one financial/banking system and all the rest. This would equate to the Beast system mentioned in Revelation 13 and of course the associated mark.

The owner of this OPP Channel is apparently an ex catholic, so is in a strong position to give an insider view from the outside of the Catholic faith. I have had limited dealings with Catholicism so I'm not really qualified to comment on it, but what little I have seen, has not impressed me much at all, but my attitude is each to their own. I'm personally non-denominational these days.

Watch the Video on this meeting and more importantly the associated highlighted documentation and you will see the Pope who should be first and foremost a Religious leader step out as an emerging World Political/Government leader, something we saw hinted at way back in September 2015 when he visited the US.



NEXT watch this video on why the OPP Channel thinks the Catholic Church is Mystery Babylon. Probably one of the most convincing arguments yet with many of the jigsaw pieces fitting into place. VIDEO

What's my view on all this?

So has Mystery Babylon been revealed and part of Revelation 18 Fulfilled. It certainly is interesting and raises the profile of the Catholic Church as Mystery Babylon, but in my humble opinion the jigsaw pieces even now, a lot DO fit, but the fit is still not 100%. For Prophecy to be correct it has to be 100%, not 90% or 95% or even 99% but 100%.

The Pope is most certainly up to something, it doesn't take a brain surgeon to figure that one out, but for me I still think he could be the False Prophet. The Mekudeshet event last year amongst many others, would be another case in point. Let's just say I keep one eye on the Pope at all times.

Here´s a couple of lines of scripture that throw a spanner in the works of the Rome and the Catholic Church as Mystery Babylon.

Revelation 18:17-19
17. For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every ship master, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off,
18. And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city!
19. And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas, that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! for in one hour is she made desolate.


1. If Rome is Mystery Babylon why are sailors, ships, ship masters, the sea mentioned so frequently. Rome is inland and is a not a seaport. Saudi Arabia is classed as a Desert in the Sea and imports most of it´s goods and is a better fit.
2. Verse 19 is particularly bizarre "And they cast dust on their heads and cried weeping and wailing". Casting dust on the head is a Middle Eastern custom that is not found in Europe or America. Why is this mentioned if Mystery Babylon is in the West such as Rome and not in the Middle East.
3. All of Revelation is focused pretty much around Israel and Jerusalem and the neighbouring Middle Eastern areas.
4. The Vatican is decked out in finery as mentioned in Revelation but is it making it's merchants rich. Certainly this recent meeting with the world business leaders would fit that description, but again Saudi Arabia by it's sheer importing power and incredible consumption has made more merchants rich?

Moving onto Revelation 19:2-3

2. For true and righteous are his judgements: for he hath judged the great whore, which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and hath avenged the blood of his servants at her hand.
3. And again they said, Alleluia. And her smoke rose up for ever and ever.


If you cross reference Verse Rev 19:3 you come up with this:

Isaiah 34:9-10
9 It's streams will be turned into pitch, And its loose earth into brimstone, And its land will become burning pitch.
10 It will not be quenched night or day; Its smoke will go up forever. From generation to generation it will be desolate; None will pass through it forever and ever.


This prophecy has not happened yet and has not been fulfilled in Revelation either, nothing on this planet has continually burnt with smoke going on for ever and ever..........unless I've missed something?

What is Pitch. Wikipedia Definition?
Pitch is a name for any of a number of viscoelastic polymers. Pitch can be natural or manufactured, derived from petroleum, coal tar or plants. Various forms of pitch may also be called tar, bitumen or asphalt. Pitch produced from plants is also known as resin.

Italy imports 90% of it''s coal. It is not a producer of coal so that rules out Pitch derived from coal tar. Italy does have recently found oil reserves but nothing in comparison to say a country like Saudi Arabia that would burn forever and ever.

Here´s the Top 4 oil producing nations on this planet by Barrels per Day
Rank Country Oil - production (bbl/day)
1 Saudi Arabia 11,730,000
2 United States 11,110,000
3 Russia 10,440,000
4 China 4,197,000

Out of those 4 countries which is the smallest and therefore has the densest oil reserves per square km? The finger points at Saudi Arabia. What country could burn and it´s smoke would go up forever and ever, certainly the incredibly concentrated oil reserves of Saudi Arabia fit that description??

Revelation 18:11-13
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.


Revelation 18:12 could certainly apply to the Vatican with the colours Purple and Scarlet being particularly relevant. This one is often quoted by the Rome and Mystery Babylon backers. The first part of Revelation 18:13 could also apply. BUT this could also be said of Saudi Arabia who is a huge importer of such products as the country is mainly desert.

It´s in the latter part of Verse 13 where everything falls flat on it´s face with regard to Rome and the Vatican. Italy is renowned for producing it´s own Oil such as Olive Oil, it´s own wine, it grows it´s own wheat (thin durum for pasta), has it´s own farms, produces it´s own cars (chariots). Slavery maybe in the past, souls of men yes. Apply Verse 13 to a country like Saudi Arabia and the pieces fit shockingly almost perfectly, especially when you throw the Islamic religion into the equation which Mecca is the capital city of.

The Old... Revelation is in Chronological Order - Not in Chronological Order debate?

This is the debate that brings out the Bible scholars in droves who state that the Book of Revelation is in Chronological Order or it is NOT in Chronological Order. My view is it is in Chronological Order mostly with some parallels in places. There are only two entities that really know the answer to that question and that is St John the Divine who is no longer with us who received the vision and the entity that gave him the vision in the first place and that is God. It doesn't matter how many letters you have after your name, whether you have studied Revelation for centuries and written a best selling book on it, the fact remains those are the only two entities that really know..........anything else is merely just theory and mans interpretation.

Revelation 18 is an example that is almost near to the end of the Book of Revelation. It is the last event before Christ’s return in glory at Armageddon in the next chapter. It is placed after the wrath of God is poured out and before Christ’s return. To say that Revelation 18 has been fulfilled would be like saying that the Wrath of God has been poured out via the Great Tribulation which quite clearly is not the case. That's if you hold the Chronological view. Even if you don''t hold the Chronological view, things don''t quite line up?

Summary.

The three front runners for mystery Babylon remain the same New York, US...... Vatican, Rome and Mecca, Saudi Arabia. There will be others emerging in the future, to challenge these three established locations, entities. As always with Prophecy that has been written by somebody else, it is easy to arrive at certain theories, it's getting all those jigsaw pieces not only to fit together but to present you with a clear and not scrambled picture. On a final note I suggest you watch this video below which appeared in the previous article on Mystery Babylon which goes into great detail on why he thinks and myself included that Saudi Arabia is Mystery Babylon and really is the strongest argument that is backed up by scripture. The Catholic Church and Rome is still a strong candidate but just slightly less convincing even with the recent developments and meeting taken into account which is compelling evidence. The direct scripture in Revelation 18  is clos,e but when you look for confirmations via cross referencing in the Old Testament, the Rome Mystery Babylon theory comes short! As always form your own opinion.
