Episode 153: Jerusalem and Babylon

Jerusalem and Babylon Show Notes


Many have tried to decipher the meaning of Mystery Babylon, the Mother of Harlots in the Book of Revelation. It’s been applied to Rome, London, Washington DC, America, and even Hollywood. Babylon certainly has its historical ties to Iraq and Assyria, and is, in fact, the birthplace of the mystery religion that worships the Serpent. This “mystery of iniquity” was carried to all nations, languages, and cultures, but it is my contention that the grand scheme culminates in the birth of a wealthy, apostate Jerusalem that will be the headquarters for the Beast.

Christ warned the believers in Israel to flee Judea. Why? That’s where Jerusalem is, and it will be destroyed by the Lord Himself and rebuilt as a new mountain!

The desecrated temple will be destroyed, and a new one built on the newly formed mountain of Zion, which will be like a plateau on the top. Christ will not use the temple the antichrist will defile. He will build His temple in Jerusalem!
