THE MANY CIPHERS LOCATING MYSTERY, BABYLON (PT. 1)

It’s one of the hottest topics in Bible prophecy today.  Where is Mystery Babylon?  What if nobody has it right?  Has the cipher ever been broken?


 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 w***e that sitteth upon many waters.

So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.Read More

WHY REVELATION’S SEVEN HILLS IDENTIFY MORE THAN ROME

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

When Describing the Harlot and the Beast, the Context is Always Symbolic

The first reaction of most prophecy pundits is that the seven mountains upon which the woman sitteth are the seven hills of Rome. There are, however, quite a number of problems with this common interpretation, the first of which is that the passage self-interprets its meaning to be something other than the city of Rome:

“And they are seven kings: the five are fallen, the one is, … Read More

Does Revelation Predict Future Events or Just Tell Us History?

Yesterday, I participated in a debate with Brian Godawa on Parker J. Cole’s program, “Parker’s Comparables.”  The show’s theme was to address the Harlot of Babylon, Revelation 17.  But we spent a good deal of time on the matter of the audience of the book.  Was it targeted just to those living in the first century?  Or was it prophetically addressed to those at the end of the age? You might not be familiar with the Preterist viewpoint that sees all of John’s Apocalypse focused on the first century only.  The debate spans about 100 minutes.
