Sign 9 - Babylon rebuilt (Revelation 14, 16 and 18)

According to the Bible, Babylon will be the place from where the antichrist will rule the world for 7 years. See the verses below that mention about this prophecy:

  • Revelation 16:19
    "The great city split into three parts, and the cities of the nations collapsed. God remembered Babylon the Great and gave her the cup filled with the wine of the fury of his wrath."
  • Revelation 17:5
    "This title was written on her forehead: MYSTERY BABYLON THE GREAT THE MOTHER OF PROSTITUTES AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH."

The Bible tells about Babylon as home of the antichrist in the Revelation book. Babylon is located around 50 miles north away from Baghdad, in Iraq. See map below:

The ex-ruler from Iraq, Saddam Hussein spend millions of dollars rebuilding Babylon. During Iraq War, in 2003, the TVs confirmed and displayed Babylon totally rebuilt and restored by Saddam.

In Isaiah 13 and 14 and in Jeremiah 50 and 51 it's predicted a total destruction of Babylon. We can conclude that this hasn't happened yet. It will happen during the Tribulation period, according to Revelation book.

Below, there are some photos from the rebuilt Babylon:
