Whore of Babylon, Bible Prophecy, Book of Revelation, Revelation 17


Introduction



The Whore of Babylon and her judgement are described in Revelation 17 and 18.  It is a major prediction in Bible Prophecy. The passage has been exposited by theologians, teachers and all who write on end time Bible Prophecy. 


I too have written on these passages.

In March of 2017, the door opened  for me to visit Rome and the Vatican.   I was able to  attend the 60th Anniversary of the Treaty of Rome, which established the European Union, which was  a major  European Union  event   along with “the March for Europe” where citizens came from around the EU to march for the EU’s move forward.   I toured Rome and visited the Vatican and Vatican Museums.

The verses of Revelation 17 and 18 came to life as never before after seeing Rome for myself. After leaving Rome I embarked on extensive research and study of the city and its history.  The finished product is this book, which reveals insights into the Whore of Babylon along with her identity and details you will not find anywhere else.

If Rome showed me anything it is the fulfillment of the prophetic Word to the letter.  The Word of God never ceases to amaze me in its accuracy and dimension.  It truly is a living Word. 

We are living in a unique time in history where as never before so much knowledge is at our fingertips and can be attained with the click of a mouse. Research that would take years now only takes months and days.  With the proliferation of knowledge also comes the ability to understand the missed details in Bible Prophecy and get their full meaning as never before. So it is with understanding the full meaning of the Whore of Babylon who is wickedness   in the eyes of God and the judgment that will come upon her.

The Origin of Babylon in the Bible-New Details Revealed

The Origin of Babylon in the Bible-New Details Revealed

Babylon, the Bible, Genesis, Babel, Bible Prophecy, Whore of Babylon

1
BabYLON- Its ORIGIN




In the book of Genesis we see the origins of Babylon. We learn  that Babylon was founded by Nimrod who was the grandson of Ham; Noah’s wicked son.


Genesis 10:6-10 provides the origin of Babylon. Genesis 10: 6-7 begins:

 The sons of Ham were Cush, Mizraim, Put, and Canaan. The sons of Cush were Seba, Havilah, Sabtah, Raamah, and Sabtechah; and the sons of Raamah were Sheba and Dedan.

Mizriam was the Hebrew name for Egypt. We begin to see that from Ham come nations that will in time afflict the nation of Israel and will also lead the Israelites astray in their idolatry.

The Bible records of Nimrod and his kingdom of Babel in verse 8-12.

Cush begot Nimrod; he began to be a mighty one on the earth. He was a mighty hunter before the Lord; therefore it is said, “Like Nimrod the mighty hunter before the Lord.” 10 And the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, Erech, Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar. 11 From that land he went to Assyria and built Nineveh, Rehoboth Ir, Calah, 12 and Resen between Nineveh and Calah (that is the principal city).


 The verse tells us that Cush, Noah’s oldest son, begot Nimrod. The name Nimrod in the Hebrew means rebellion or valiant. In family birth order the oldest son is closest to the father in age and as the oldest more is expected of the first born. Generally they receive more time from the parent than any other child born to them.

It is no surprise that Nimrod’s name means rebellion. We see the same evil that was in his grandfather characterize him in part because he would receive the teachings and values or lack of them from his father, which also come from the father’s father. 


So what was Ham’s Sin that Nimrod would acquire?

Ham’s Sin

Ham was the son of Noah who sinned against his father. Noah had too much to drink and fell asleep naked.  Ham upon seeing his naked father most likely made fun of him and told his other two brothers. On hearing Ham’s mockery of his father instead of joining in they picked up Noah’s garment and walked backwards and covered him.  God then cursed Noah’s son Canaan (Genesis 9:20-25.) Some have speculated that sinful acts took place in the tent, or that Canaan was somehow involved. It could be that he was part of this mock fest of Noah or because he was like his father and he was cursed. The Canaanites went onto give Israel a good deal of trouble in the land of Israel. 

We see from Ham’s actions an act that is not only immoral but a person who lacks boundaries, which can be said for all serious sinful actions and crimes.  Noah was passed out sleeping naked in a position that was unbecoming and private. Shem and Japhet respected their father’s dignity and privacy by walking backwards to not take a glance at their father in this undignified position and they covered him.

 In our society one’s dignity is guarded and for this reason sick and terminally ill patients who are cared for in hospitals are covered up while they are incapacitated  and unable to care for their bodily functions.  Medical workers are trained to guard the dignity of the person they care for by keeping them covered when while they are compromised health wise. A person is even guarded after death and for this reason  medical and rescue workers cover the body of the deceased.  In Noah’s compromised moment Ham attempted to make his father a spectacle and shame him.

Ham was making fun of his father, totally disrespecting him by turning his nakedness and drunkenness into a spectator event.  He wanted his brothers to join in with his viewing his father as looking ridiculous.  It was a moment for Ham of total disrespect. It revealed his rebellion and disdain for his father’s authority.  It violated one of the ten commandments of honoring your father and mother. For it Canaan was cursed to be a servant as all underachievers who never achieve due to their rebellious attitudes and lifestyles.

Thus from Ham would come  Cush, Egypt, the Canaanites and through Ham’s grandson the ultimate in rebellion against God: Babylon. We also see coming from Ham Godless nations steeped in idolatry.

Nimrod would not only found Babylon but also founded Assyria and built Nineveh: other nations steeped in idolatry. These cities would cause Israel the most grief and God would use them to judge the nation.

Nimrod becomes the founder of Babel or Babylon.  He is like another hunter in the Bible and that is Esau who became the father of the Arab nations. Nimrod was called a mighty hunter in Genesis 10:9, while Esau was called a cunning hunter. Genesis 25:27.

In Genesis 11: 1-9 we get the account of the Tower of Babel,  which sheds light on Babylon it reads:

Now the whole earth had one language and one speech. And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar, and they dwelt there. Then they said to one another, “Come, let us make bricks and bake them thoroughly.” They had brick for stone, and they had asphalt for mortar. And they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city, and a tower whose top is in the heavens; let us make a name for ourselves, lest we be scattered abroad over the face of the whole earth.”

But the Lord came down to see the city and the tower which the sons of men had built. And the Lord said, “Indeed the people are one and they all have one language, and this is what they begin to do; now nothing that they propose to do will be withheld from them. Come, let Us go down and there confuse their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.” So the Lord scattered them abroad from there over the face of all the earth, and they ceased building the city. Therefore its name is called Babel, because there the Lord confused the language of all the earth; and from there the Lord scattered them abroad over the face of all the earth.

Babel, founded by Nimrod and like his name which means rebellion, in an act of defiance of the Holy God they tried to be like Him in attempting to build a tower to reach to heaven.

The Bible tells us “they had brick for stone and asphalt for mortar.” Meaning it is not the real solid building materials and are the cheap and inferior replacements, which is a depiction of Babylon and its teachings that men and women follow. It would be the source of the Whore of Babylon and all false religion.

We see a picture of the man who started Babylon, along with his father and uncles, Nimrod’s uncle started Egypt, and Nimrod as both rebellious and valiant and following the family tradition of would start the land of Babylon and other nations steeped in idolatry.


We would see Babylon coming to judge Israel at the end of the Kingdom period in Israel’s history. It is the place that the book of Daniel begins and where we God gives Nebuchadnezzar the vision of the empires that would succeed Babylon and control Israel and the visions would depict the final world empire that will lay siege to Israel and set up the abomination of desolation in the Third Temple.


This empire that Daniel describes with great iron teeth and exceedingly dreadful and terrible who conquers many nations and destroys the Holy People. It is this empire that is joined with the Whore of Babylon depicted in Revelation 17 and 18. Her appearance on the Beast of Revelation depicts her significant role.

The King of Babylon is Lucifer and the Antichrist

KING OF BABYLON-LUCIFER- ANTICHRIST



While the prophet Daniel establishes Babylon as parallel with the final world power and provides many details of its structure; Jeremiah 51 predicts Babylon’s judgment. He prophesizes against the literal land that once existed, as well as its latter- day counterpart.  As with Tyrus, whose king God identifies as Satan, God refers to the king of Babylon as Lucifer. The Antichrist is also “the King of Babylon.” Isaiah 14:4-6 records his evil rule and conquest:

That you will take up this proverb against the King of Babylon, and say, How the oppressor has ceased! The golden city ceased!  The Lord has broken the staff of the wicked, the scepter of the rulers.  He who struck the people in wrath with a continual stroke, He who ruled the nations in anger, is persecuted and no one hinders.

The passage later identifies Satan as the King of Babylon, and describes Satan’s fall from heaven.  Isaiah 14:12-17 continues:

12 “How you are fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning!
How you are cut down to the ground, You who weakened the nations!
13 For you have said in your heart: ‘I will ascend into heaven,
I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will also sit on the mount of the congregation On the farthest sides of the north;
14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds, I will be like the Most High.’ 15 Yet you shall be brought down to Sheol, To the lowest depths of the Pit.

16 “Those who see you will gaze at you, And consider you, saying:
‘Is this the man who made the earth tremble, Who shook kingdoms,
17 Who made the world as a wilderness And destroyed its cities,
Who did not open the house of his prisoners?’

In Scripture Babylon is dimensional. It is viewed both politically, economically, and spiritually and is represented by the Whore of Babylon. We see the Bible’s depiction drawing on true facts about the ancient Empire and the idolatrous worship that went on there. It’s idolatry infected Israel and drew the Israelites away from the God of Abraham and caused them to sin against Him.

In examining the details about ancient Babylon we can pinpoint the characteristics of the revived Roman empire, which will be the final world empire.  

We also learn the meaning of the evil Whore of Babylon and see her role in Babylon and in the each of the empires that followed and especially in the final revived Roman Empire that will launch the Antichrist.


In the Bible we see the King of Babylon associated with Satan.  As Christ gives Himself for His Bride and joins with her in forever union,  the King of Babylon has his Whore who he later discards and  destroys to exalt himself. We see many contrasts in the Bible of God and Satan.  Along with them opposite God’s blessed land of Israel is Satan’s unholy land of Babylon and as Jesus has the Bride of Christ, the Antichrist has the Whore of Babylon.

Babylonian Society-Old and New Judged in the Revelation

Babylon, Whore of Babylon, Bible Prophecy, Babylon in the Bible

RELIGIOUS-SOCIAL-POLITICAL BABYON


Babylonian gods and occult practices

Idolatry, Immorality, and sorcery, imprinted Babylonian society. The Babylonians were idolatrous, with innumerable gods.  Historian Will Durant numbered their gods around 65,000. The nation was famous throughout the ancient world for astronomy.  They were astrologers first and foremost.  Sorcerers and necromancers were more popular than physicians. 

Babylonians were also heavily superstitious.  Divination and the interpretation of dreams were common practice as Hepatoscopy, a favorite Babylonian method of divination, involved examining the livers of animals.  Ezekiel confirms these Babylonian practices in declaring: “For the king of Babylon stands at the parting of the road, at the fork of the two roads, to use divination: he shakes the arrows, he consults the images, he looks at the liver” (Ezek.21:21).  


Social Babylon


God condemned all three aspects of Babylonian society—political, religious, and social.


  Besides being a hub for international trade, and religiously devoted to the Queen of Heaven, Babylonian society was immortal, steeped in superstition, divination, idolatry, and sexual promiscuity.  The morals of Babylon shocked Alexander the Great, himself a drunkard.  Temple prostitutes practiced sacred prostitution in Babylon until abolished by Constantine.  Babylonians engaged in considerable premarital experience.  Poor men prostituted their daughters for money. The indulgence in fleshly pleasures abounded. 
         
Babylonian men acted effeminate.  They wore their hair as long as the women did, dyed and curled it, perfumed their flesh, rouged their cheeks, and adorned themselves with necklaces, bangles, earrings, and  pendants. This also describes many of today’s rock groups, transvestites, transsexuals, and homosexual drag queens.

In Europe today, materialism and superstition abound.  Italian housewives practice forms of divination such as divining oil to read a migraine headache, or determining the sex of a baby by reading the movements of a needle over a pregnant woman’s womb.

French society is one of the best educated in the world.  Yet, in one year ten million French citizens consulted clairvoyants and astrologers.  They spent three times as much on faith healers as they spent on family doctors.  Almost half of the French population believes in faith healing.  One in four believes in clairvoyants, and one in three believes in astrology.  Many believe in the power of faith healers, astrologers, and palmists. In France, as many as sixty corporations use an organization called Divinitel, which employs astrology and tarot card reading for the recruitment of executives.

 In European society, extramarital affairs are so common that spouses expect each other to have lovers. Europeans view Americans’ disdain for infidelity as being out of touch with the facts of life.  Germany has legalized prostitution. Hard rock, punk, and new wave all originated in Europe, and their dress and music have influenced groups in the US and around the world.     
The Green parties in Europe have revived a form of idolatry that originated with the Greeks: earth worship.  To the Greeks, she was a goddess; earth as mother.  Green policies for the preservation of the earth began in West Germany, spread through Europe and then into America. Ironically, the earth that these groups take such pains to preserve for future generations God will destroy.  Mother Earth cannot save anyone from the coming Tribulation.

Babylon Commercial Hub

Babylon was the commercial hub of the Near East.  Trade and commerce increased its wealth.  The invention of wheeled carts allowed trade to expand from local to foreign commerce.  Nebuchadnezzar helped Babylonian businesses by improving the highways.  Countless caravans brought to Babylon’s shops half the world’s products. 

Under Nebuchadnezzar, Babylon became a thriving and prosperous marketplace.  Babylon, referred to in ancient times as “a great city,” drew the nations of the Mediterranean world into closer contact. Notice the ancient’s reference to Babylon as “a great city” which is also cited in Revelation 7:18:

18 And the woman whom you saw is that great city, which reigns over the kings of the earth.”

God views Babylon in a spiritual sense and it leads men and women astray in its idolatry in both its religion and goods.  With prosperity can come materialism, covetousness and greed which is another form of idolatry.  Like Tyrus, ancient Babylon was renowned for trade. 

Revelation records Babylon’s fall in the end times. The merchants lament its destruction.  The verse reads: “And the merchants of the earth will weep and mourn over her; for no one buys their merchandise anymore” (Revelation 18:11).

Revelation 18:15 reiterates: “The merchants of these things, who became rich by her, will stand at a distance for fear of her torment, weeping and wailing.” The world’s nations will prosper from trading with this political power, which acts as a hub for trade.  Ezekiel 27:33 confirms:  “When your wares went out by sea, you satisfied many people; you enriched the kings of the earth with your many luxury goods and your merchandise.

The Antichrist will emerge from the revived Roman Empire, which like Babylon will become powerful through trade and commerce.  It will make itself and the world’s merchants rich.  Its prosperity extends to the earth’s rulers.  Nations will gain wealth by trading with this world power.   

After Babylon became great and powerful and was used by God to judge Israel, the Medes and Persians conquered Babylon.  The Greeks followed and the Roman Empire came next.

After the Babylonian invasion of Israel a remnant went back to Judah under Cyrus the Great of Persia, recorded in Ezra and Nehemiah  but it was never the same. The Second Temple was rebuilt missing the Ark of the Covenant and other key articles and it was expanded under Herod and destroyed under Titus in AD 70.

While physical Babylon was destroyed in Bible Prophecy it became the reference point as other firsts in the Bible. Examples are Adam for man, Rachel for all mother’s in Israel, and Jacob for Israel and we see this pattern repeated in the Revelation with the names of the seven churches of all coming from the original churches started by the apostles.   

Babylon invaded Israel and destroyed the first Temple, we see Babylon with one of its heads, the Roman Empire destroy the second Temple. The revived Roman Empire is Babylon in its final stage. It destroys the Whore that has ridden the Beast through all of its history and then is itself destroyed at the time of the second coming of Jesus Christ after which the heavenly kingdom is ushered in and reigns.
