211. Could America be “Mystery Babylon”?

This edition looks at America as a candidate for “Mystery Babylon.”

This article continues the #1 topic of interest to my readers. Previous posts have dealt with the cities of Rome and Babylon as candidates for “Mystery Babylon.” I have offered many reasons why I feel the city of Babylon does not qualify. Rome scores higher, but some questions still remain. Today, I would like to take a look at a third alternative-America (as represented by New York City). While proponents of this view have trouble explaining how the description of “seven mountains on which the woman sits” (Rev. 17:9) applies, they offer some fascinating facts to support their case.
One argument they offer centers around New York City. When ships enter the harbor facilities, they enter from the south. Heading north, they face a city on Long Island called “Babylon.” Ship captains use its tall water tower (on which is written BABYLON) to help navigate into the harbor channel. Before heading west to the ports of New York City, Babylon can easily be seen. Whereas the account in Rev. 18:15-19 doesn’t fit for the city of Babylon (not a deep water seaport), it fits perfectly here. Were the great city in flames, sailors and merchants from this location could see it perfectly.
In my previous post, I referenced Zechariah 5:5-11. Some rabbis in the late 1800s had a strong view about this section of Scripture. According to their interpretation, it foretold that the power of ancient Babylon would be moved at some time in the future. They also believed that Isaiah 18:1 indicated that the spirit of Babylon would move beyond the western border of ancient Babylon, beyond the rivers of Ethiopia and Egypt. Since these areas were west of Jerusalem, where Isaiah was writing, they felt that the future location would be to the west. The Babylon on Long Island was founded in 1872 by immigrant Jews whose rabbis held this view. They believed it would become the home of a new Diaspora (scattering).

I can see the Zechariah passages as indicating that Babylon, in some form, would be moved to another location. I think the interpretation of Isaiah 18:1 is a real stretch, but I’ll give then the benefit of the doubt, for now. I’m having trouble, however, relating Shinar to America. If the interpretations presented here are correct, then Babylon will be moved to a place in the land of Shinar (Zech. 5:11). I’m not seeing a connection, unless Shinar is used figuratively. However, in each of the eight times Shinar is used in the Old Testament, it refers to a land or a place.
Considering the direction America is going, I am more inclined to consider this view. We are moving away from God and our current leaders are taking us closer to a One World Government every day. Morally, we are becoming more qualified every day to represent the Great Harlot of Revelation 17. All the pieces, however, must fit. I’d like to hear your comments on this topic.
As I have said often, the point is to be ready, no matter what unfolds. We must be on the right side. We must know what we believe and why we believe it. We must be prepared to suffer, if necessary, and place the glory of God above everything else.

    Very interesting, and right on, Ed. Not much out there on Shinar, but I did find this link that you might find interesting: http://cnview.com/bible_study/a_study_on_mystery_babylon.htm

    Keep up the good work for Him, dear brother.

    The spirit of YHVH has departed from most of the churches in America because of the spirit of apostasy. The whole of the word of God is a testament or will by the blood of the testator. The very character and ethos of the Holy Scripture is salvation by the precious blood of Yahshua Messiah. It is a crimson cord that traces its way from the beginning to the end through the Garden of Eden to the book of Revelations. To take away or tear down this eternal life force that is forever present in the living word of God is to destroy the Revelation knowledge of God through Yahshua Messiah. Christ’s shed blood and sacred death was sufficient for the sanctification from sin throughout the ages of time and it is the same yesterday, today and forever. The Bible repetitively speaks of God’s promise to preserve his word when he says, “Heaven and earth shall pass away but my words shall not pass away” (Matthew 24:35). “The grass withereth, the flowers fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand forever”

    BEHOLD A WHITE HORSE Is A Must Read For Every Truth Seeker as Cisco Wheeler has given the world a deeper insight as to how Catholicism, Masonry, Witchcraft,Mormonism and all Secret Societies, has blinded its spiritual tapestry within the very fibers of the Christian church. Through the traditions of man the Anti-Christ has come through the front door of the churches and has deceitfully sat himself down as a teacher in the pulpits of the world churches of today, to deceive what is left of the righteous seed. of YHVH GOD. Through the blinding of Luciferian knowledge in the churches of today,the world council of Religious Leaders aims to serve as a model and guide for the creation of a community of world religions…. The objective of the council is to serve a resource to the United Nations and its agencies around the world, nation states and other international organizations, offering the collective wisdom and resources of the faith and traditions towards the resolution of critical global problems.

    WTC Towers – The Seven Kings of Revelation 17?

    Revelation 17
    9. And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.

    There are 7 major mountain ranges in the United States of America:

    1 – Rocky Mountains
    2 – Appalachian Mountains
    3 – Ozark Mountains
    4 – Cascade Mountains
    5 – Sierra Nevada Mountains
    6 – Alaska Range
    7 – Brooks Range (White Mountains – Alaska)

    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.

    All 7 WTC Buildings were destroyed as a result of the 9/11 terror attacks.
    Five WTC Buildings are under construction at this time.
    One has been completed. (WTC – 7 in 2006)

    There is no clearly defined 6 World Trade Center in the new World Trade Center master plan however it is most likely that one will be eventually included and constructed parallel to the others in the plaza. Five are fallen…one is (WTC 7)…and one is surely to come and must continue a short space. (WTC – 6?)

    These kings are also referred to as “mountains”. The towers being representative of financial power through world trade, in large part, control the free market economy of the entire world, even affecting countries that are not free. In this respect they are “kingly” as well as being “mountainous” forms of steel and concrete.
    Might this possibly mean that time is limited for the new WTC buildings along with the entire city of New York? And why did John the Revelator use the word “space” rather than the word “time” if the intention was to imply a period of time? ‘Dis is what I ‘tink…he meant just what he said…space would indicate area, not time. Building 6 may break ground and even get partially built, “continuing a short space”, before something happens…but what? Whatever it is, I don’t think it will be good.

    WTC 1 – Opening Dec. 2012
    WTC 2 – Opening 2014
    WTC 3 – Opening 2014
    WTC 4 – Opening 2013
    WTC 5 – Opening 2013
    WTC 7 – Completed 2006


    “U.S. of America” = 666
    “New York” = 666
    “New Whore” = 666
    “A New Babylon” = 666

    where A = 6, B = 12, C = 18, D = 24…..Z = 156
