We have two Babylons.
Babylon- Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance-Hebrew #894-confusion.
Babylon-Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance-Greek #897- the capital of Chaldaea.
1) We have MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS, AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
Revelation 17:5, “And upon her forehead was a name written, Mystery, Babylon The Great, The Mother Of Harlots And Abominations Of The Earth.”
This is the Catholic Church and the churches which evolved from the Catholic Church.
The Catholic Church is the wife of Satan. Satan is the scarlet colored beast on which the woman sits.
Revelation 17:3, “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.”
The Beast of the Roman Empire will destroy the Catholic Church.
This is a duality of the Roman Emperor and the Pope struggling over who has power over the other.
This is also the rebellion of the Son of Perdition (son of Satan) against his father, Satan.
2) The city of Rome, Italy is the great Babylonian city which reigns over the kings of the earth.
Revelation 17:18, “And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.”
The beast leader of the revived Roman Empire of ten kings will destroy the Catholic Church and this great city.
11 “And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.”
12 “And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.”
13 “These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.”
14 “These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.”
15 “And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.”
16 “And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.”
17 “For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.”
18 “And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.”
This beast leader is the Son of Perdition, Son of Satan, mentioned in II Thessalonians 2:3-4.
II Thessalonians 2:3-4
3 “Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;”
4 “Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.”
This beast leader will rule the world from this great city with the use of artificial Intelligence.
Rome does not have to be a port city to manage the commerce of the world.
The destruction of the Catholic Church and this great city is part of the Son of Perdition’s rebellion against his father, Satan.
The Son of Perdition’s rebellion against his father, Satan, is comparable to Lucifer’s rebellion against the Lord, his Father and Creator, which changed him from Lucifer to Satan.
Lucifer rebelled against his Father becoming Satan and now Satan’s son, the Son of Perdition, is rebelling against him.
25 “And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand:”
26 “And if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself; how shall then his kingdom stand?”
