In this article, you will see proof that Rome, New York City and the United States of America do NOT fit the biblical description of the end time city of Babylon. And you will also see solid proof that Saudi Arabia is building the city of Babylon. Please read the entire article to examine all of the proof.
On Oct. 24-25, 2017, Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, announced to the world that Saudi Arabia is building a high tech metropolis called NEOM. If allowed to come to completion, it will be 33 times larger than New York City! New Jerusalem of Revelation 21 will be 2,225 km. Source
If allowed to be completed, NEOM would be 26,500 km, (10,230 square miles) almost 12 times larger than New Jerusalem! It will be the real life version of "The Jetsons" cartoon. Supposedly, no shopping centers, malls or stores will be built in this new modern city. Everything you need will be delivered to your door by robots or drones. The city will feature driverless cars and even flying cars. Supposedly, the city will be entirely powered by solar panels and windmills. This is the dream of Google and many other promoters of highly advanced technology.
It is to be located in northern Saudi Arabia and will cross the borders of Jordan & Egypt. It is highly possible that they will demand land from Israel for this city. They are already building this city of NEOM, which perhaps we should call "Babylon". They have already laid some of the infrastructure, as well as built an airport for the incoming construction workers. The land borders the Red Sea, a major shipping route.
In this article, I will share many reasons why I suspect that this could be the end time great city of Babylon of the Book of Revelation, chapters 17-18.
Revelation 17 (KJV)
:1 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 whore that sitteth upon many waters:
2 With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.
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 word "wilderness" in the bible does NOT refer to jungles & woods, but rather to desert & uninhabited places. For example, the desert in the region of Jerusalem is still called today "The Judean Wilderness".)
4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: (The Saudi Royal family is one of the most wealthy families on the planet, and perhaps the most wealthy.)
5 And upon her forehead was a name written, Mystery, Babylon The Great, The Mother Of Harlots And Abominations Of The Earth. (Mystery Babylon is more than a city. It is all false religion which descended from Nimrod & Asshur who built the first city of Babylon. The city of Babylon must be connected with false religion.)
6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration. (The city of Babylon must be a leading city & nation of Christian persecution. America is not a leading nation of Christian persecution.)
7 And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns.
8 The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.
9 And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.
10 And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space.
11 And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.
(There are 7 empires that must rule in this location of Babylon. USA does NOT fit that description.) (It's clear in these verses that "7 mountains" actually refer primarily to 7 empires throughout time, with an end time revival of one of the empires. But it is generally also accepted as being literally 7 mountains also. New York City is not located on 7 mountains, nor 7 hills.)
:1 And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory.
2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.
3 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.
4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.
5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.
6 Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double.
7 How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.
8 Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her.
9 And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning,
10 Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come.
11 And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more:
12 The merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood (A north African tree. There is NOT a demand for this type of wood in America. Neither does America export it. This indicates an African or middle eastern city of Babylon), and all manner vessels of ivory (Selling of new ivory is illegal in America, so Babylon cannot be the USA, nor New York City), and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble,
13 And cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense (Growing of Franklincense in the USA is extremely rare. And the use of it is also rare in the USA compared to the middle east, Asia and Africa), and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men. (It is the nations of Syria, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Russia and China that will be importing American slaves after the destruction of America.)
14 And the fruits that thy soul lusted after are departed from thee, and all things which were dainty and goodly are departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more at all.
15 The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing,
16 And saying, Alas, alas that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls!
17 For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off,
18 And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city!
19 And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! for in one hour is she made desolate. (Americans doe not throw dust on our heads. This is a middle eastern custom.)
20 Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her.
21 And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all.
22 And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman, of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more in thee; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in thee;
23 And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.
24 And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth. (America has never been responsible for the blood of saints and prophets. That crime was committed by Mecca, Rome, Assyria and Saudi Arabia.)
The city of Babylon must fit all of the following major requirements:
1. A major shipping port,
2. Extremely important to end time worldwide commerce,
3. A connection historically to the persecution/martyrdom of Christians (Followers of Jesus),
4. Be in the desert & not occupied for a long time, (Isa.13 & Isa. 34). Rome doesn't fit this description.
5. Be a large, middle eastern city, because the bible is a middle eastern book. The original Babylon was in the middle east. The Persian Empire, Greek Empire & and Roman Empire, were all descendants/revivals of ancient Babylon. There's nothing in the bible to indicate that the end time Babylon would move completely to an entirely different region of the world.
6. Be located in the same location as ALL of the following empires: The Neo-Babylonian Empire of Nebuchadnezzar, Medo-Persian Empire, Greek Empire and the Roman Empire.
Surprise: The map below shows that Rome & Italy was NOT located in the Neo-Babylonian Empire of the book of Daniel! Italy is not on this map. Italy is more west. To be "Babylon", it must be located in the ancient kingdom of Babylon! Rome & Italy was NOT part of the Babylonian Empire!
Therefore, the teaching that Rome or the Vatican is the end time city of Babylon, is hereby refuted! However, you can click here to see proof that Rome, the Vatican and the Catholic Church are a major part of spiritual Babylon.
Isaiah 34 (KJV)
:1 Come near, ye nations, to hear; and hearken, ye people: let the earth hear, and all that is therein; the world, and all things that come forth of it. 2 For the indignation (wrath) of the Lord is upon all nations, and his fury upon all their armies: he hath utterly destroyed them, he hath delivered them to the slaughter. 3 Their slain also shall be cast out, and their stink shall come up out of their carcases, and the mountains shall be melted with their blood. 4 And all the host of heaven shall be dissolved, and the heavens shall be rolled together as a scroll: and all their host shall fall down, as the leaf falleth off from the vine, and as a falling fig from the fig tree. (Very clearly, end time coming of Jesus.) 5 For my sword shall be bathed in heaven: behold, it shall come down upon Idumea (Edom/Neom), and upon the people of my curse, to judgment. (Most people agree that Edom is Jordan & northern Saudi Arabia, the exact location of Neom. See maps below.) 6 The sword of the Lord is filled with blood, it is made fat with fatness, and with the blood of lambs and goats, with the fat of the kidneys of rams: for the Lord hath a sacrifice in Bozrah, and a great slaughter in the land of Idumea (Edom/Neom). 7 And the unicorns shall come down with them, and the bullocks with the bulls; and their land shall be soaked with blood, and their dust made fat with fatness. 8 For it is the day of the Lord's vengeance, and the year of recompences for the controversy of Zion. (Edom/Esau/Babylon is the enemy of the Zionists.) 9 And the streams thereof shall be turned into pitch, and the dust thereof into brimstone, and the land thereof shall become burning pitch (burning oil). 10 It shall not be quenched night nor day; the smoke thereof shall go up for ever: from generation to generation it shall lie waste; none shall pass through it for ever and ever. (Edom/Babylon was destroyed & uninhabited for generations. Many times, the Hebrew/Greek words for "for ever" actually only means "until it's end". Much of the land of NEOM is uninhabited desert land.) 11 But the cormorant and the bittern shall possess it; the owl also and the raven (unclean birds Rev.18:2) shall dwell in it: and he shall stretch out upon it the line of confusion, and the stones of emptiness. 12 They shall call the nobles thereof to the kingdom, but none shall be there, and all her princes (prince of Saudi Arabia) shall be nothing. 13 And thorns shall come up in her palaces, nettles and brambles in the fortresses thereof: and it shall be an habitation of dragons, and a court for owls. 14 The wild beasts of the DESERT shall also meet with the wild beasts of the island (seaport city), and the satyr shall cry to his fellow; the screech owl also shall rest there, and find for herself a place of rest. 15 There shall the great owl make her nest, and lay, and hatch, and gather under her shadow: there shall the vultures also be gathered, every one with her mate. 16 Seek ye out of the book of the Lord, and read: no one of these shall fail, none shall want her mate: for my mouth it hath commanded, and his spirit it hath gathered them. 17 And he hath cast the lot for them, and his hand hath divided it unto them by line: they shall possess it for ever, from generation to generation shall they dwell therein.
:1 The burden of Babylon, which Isaiah the son of Amoz did see. 2 Lift ye up a banner upon the high mountain, exalt the voice unto them, shake the hand, that they may go into the gates of the nobles. 3 I have commanded my sanctified ones, I have also called my mighty ones for mine anger, even them that rejoice in my highness. 4 The noise of a multitude in the mountains, like as of a great people; a tumultuous noise of the kingdoms of nations gathered together: the Lord of hosts mustereth the host of the battle. 5 They come from a far country, from the end of heaven, even the Lord, and the weapons of his indignation, to destroy the whole land. 6 Howl ye; for THE DAY OF THE LORD is at hand; it shall come as a destruction from the Almighty. 7 Therefore shall all hands be faint, and every man's heart shall melt: 8 And they shall be afraid: pangs and sorrows shall take hold of them; they shall be in pain as a woman that travaileth: they shall be amazed one at another; their faces shall be as flames. 9 Behold, the day of the Lord cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it. 10 For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine. (Very clearly in end time. This is NOT talking primarily about the ancient destructions of Babylon, but rather the end time destruction.) 11 And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible. (Neom is being built out of pride.) 12 I will make a man more precious than fine gold; even a man than the golden wedge of Ophir. 13 Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth shall remove out of her place, in the wrath of the Lord of hosts, and in the day of his fierce anger. (Very clearly end time imagery.) 14 And it shall be as the chased roe, and as a sheep that no man taketh up: they shall every man turn to his own people, and flee every one into his own land. 15 Every one that is found shall be thrust through; and every one that is joined unto them shall fall by the sword. 16 Their children also shall be dashed to pieces before their eyes; their houses shall be spoiled, and their wives ravished. 17 Behold, I will stir up the Medes against them, which shall not regard silver; and as for gold, they shall not delight in it. (Iran/Medes were in ancient invaders of Saudi Arabia & could be again.) 18 Their bows also shall dash the young men to pieces; and they shall have no pity on the fruit of the womb; their eyes shall not spare children. 19 And Babylon, the glory of kingdoms, the beauty of the Chaldees' excellency, shall be as when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah. (Syria, Jordan & Saudi Arabia is the land of the Chaldees.) 20 It shall never be inhabited, neither shall it be dwelt in from generation to generation: neither shall the Arabian pitch tent there; neither shall the shepherds make their fold there. (A ceasing of the Arabs pitching tents there. It therefore must be Arab land.) 21 But wild beasts of the desert shall lie there; and their houses shall be full of doleful creatures; and owls shall dwell there, and satyrs shall dance there. 22 And the wild beasts of the islands shall cry in their desolate houses, and dragons in their pleasant palaces: and her time is near to come, and her days shall not be prolonged.
Rev 13:15 "And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed".
In Islamic tradition authenticated by At-Tirmidi, Al-Abani notes:
“Allah will raise up the black stone on the Day of Judgment and it will have two eyes and a tongue which it talks with, and it will give witness to everyone who touched it in truth”. Source: http://www.performhajj.com/tawaf_of_qudum.php
It was narrated that Ibn ‘Abbaas said: "The Messenger of Allah said concerning the Stone:
'By Allaah, Allaah will bring it forth on the Day of Resurrection, and it will have two eyes with which it will see and a tongue with which it will speak, and it will testify in favour of those who touched it in sincerity.'' Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 961; Ibn Maajah, 2944
This hadeeth was classed as hasan by al-Tirmidhi, and as qawiy by al-Haafiz ibn Hajar in Fath al-Baari, 3/462
Source: http://muslimmatters.org/2009/11/12/pucker-up-how-to-kiss-the-black-stone-every-time/ AND http://www.islamqa.com/en/ref/1902
It is believed by Muslims that you receive forgiveness of sins by touching the black stone. It was narrated that Ibn ‘Umar said: I heard the Messenger of Allah... say: “Touching them both [the Black Stone and al-Rukn al-Yamani] is an expiation for sins.” (Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 959. This hadeeth was classed as hasan by al-Tirmidhi and as saheeh by al-Haakim (1/664). Al-Dhahabi agreed with him).
The black stone is in the corner of their Mecca temple. We know that JESUS is the Chief Cornerstone!
Tareekh Baghdad by Al-Khatib (6/328), "Al-'ilal Al-Mutanahiya (2/944): "The Black Stone is Allah's right hand on earth with which He shakes the hands of His slaves."
The Stone is roughly 30 cm (12 in.) in diameter. It is the eastern cornerstone of the Kaaba, the ancient sacred stone building towards which Muslims pray, in the center of the Grand Mosque in Mecca, Saudi Arabia. According to Islamic tradition, the Stone fell from Heaven.
Mecca Clock Tower
Daniel 7:25 And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think (Aramaic word to intend, to hope. Doesn't say he will be successful in doing this, but doesn't say he won't be successful either) to change times (GMT to Mecca time) and laws (Sharia Law & the halal mark): and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.
In 2012, Saudi Arabia built the Mecca Clock Tower which they intend to use to change all time zones around the world! Their goal is to make Neom & Mecca, the location of the international UTC, Universal Time, and change all other zones accordingly. This will change time and law as the end time fulfillment of Daniel 7:25. For more information, please click here.
List of world's tallest buildings. Mecca Tower is world's 3rd tallest. The new Jeddah Tower will be the world's tallest in 2018.
:1 And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech. 2 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. 3 And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them thoroughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for morter. 4 And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; (perhaps the tallest building in the world like in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, and/or perhaps a space station) and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth. 5 And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded. 6 And the Lord said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. 7 Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech. 8 So the Lord scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city. 9 Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the Lord did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the Lord scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.
Construction on Neom has already started by establishing some critical infrastructure, plus the already existing cities in the area would be integrated into the new metro region. Saudi Arabia has much experience at building modern cities very quickly and has already established 6 other cities in recent times. They had plans to launch six "economic cities" (e.g. King Abdullah Economic City, to be completed by 2020) in an effort to diversify the economy and provide jobs. They are being built at a cost of $60 billion (2013) and are "expected to contribute $150 billion to the economy". As of 2013 four cities were being developed.
By now, I believe that it's extremely likely that they have progressed on all 6 new urban cities. Therefore NEOM is the 7th city/mountain, yet will combine all the other previously planned cities into this one giant metropolis. The prince said: "I think people will go there in 2020. They will find hotels, they will find places. 2020, 2021. But I think the city, the main project, it will be opened in 2025. So for example, we’re working on a fast track on something we call Neom Bay. It’s not the city, it’s the bay next to the city, just to have the offices and the places to start working in the site. But when the city is completed, Neom Bay will be like the Hamptons in New York later on. So I think Neom Bay will be ready in 2021, we hope before that. Actually, the airport, it exists already. In Tabuk. Actually it was completed this month, a new airport, but just for Neom employees. And I think we will start developing it to have people next year, 2019. But it’s not the main Neom airport, the big Neom airport we will have after 2020."

Remember that 911 was the work of Saudi Arabia. Remember also the connection of the Black Stone of Mecca that according to Islamic prophecy, will demand the murder/beheading of Christians. If NEOM is Babylon, this helps connect the Black Stone of Mecca as the image of the beast and the Mecca Clock as how the antichrist will change times & law and the fact that the "antichrist" must be Muslim.
Neom will be controlled by Islamic Sharia Law. The Saudi Arabian prince said: "The sovereign laws will be within framework of the Saudi law, like defense, national security, counter terrorism and similar threats. Foreign policy. These things will be retained at the Saudi government levels."
"A foreigner who desires alcohol can either go to Egypt or Jordan."
Saudi Arabia will probably demand land from Israel to be part of the new city.

"Authorities have touted the 334-square kilometer (130 square mile) project in Qiddiya, southwest of the capital, as the kingdom’s answer to Disneyland."
"Its first phase, which includes high-end theme parks, motor sport facilities and a safari area, is expected to be completed in 2022, officials say."
"In February, Saudi Arabia’s General Entertainment Authority said it would stage more than 5,000 festivals and concerts in 2018, double last year’s figure, and pump $64 billion (53 billion euros) into the sector in the coming decade."
Therefore, what we see here is that Saudi Arabia is in the process of building several mega cities throughout their nation which will eventually make the nation of Saudi Arabia into one huge metropolis/city of Babylon. But don't be deceived. this doesn't prove that the "antichrist" is the prince/king of Saudi Arabia. There is nothing in the bible that indicates that the Son of Perdition will begin the building of the end time city of Babylon. But the bible does teach that the antichrist will take over every nation in the world. Therefore the king of Saudi Arabia is building Babylon, but Bashar Assad will be the one to take over it and continue it. See related links below.
