Babylon The City
Tiresome hearing American hating Christians bash the USA as the “Great Babylon” and the authors of books portraying it as such: A clear undeniably truth in scripture must be addressed. Babylon is not a nation. Babylon is a CITY. No where in scripture does God EVER refer to Babylon as a NATION. America cannot be That Great City Babylon because it is a nation. Its to simple. Anyone who says America is Babylon has no scriptural basis or authority to create new truth. They are deceiving people for nefarious or oblivious reasons.
“And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.” This scripture claealy states and refers to Babylon as a CITY not a nation.
Psalm 137:1 [Full Chapter]
“By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down, yea, we wept, when we remembered Zion.”
“6 Then Darius the king made a decree, and search was made in the house of the rolls, where the treasures were laid up in Babylon.
2 And there was found at Achmetha, in the palace that is in the province of the Medes, a roll, and therein was a record thus written: ...” These two scriptures gives us a specific location of Babylon in ancient days. In the context within the territory of the King of Babylon; a province were the scrolls were found.
And Babylon, the glory of kingdoms, the beauty of the Chaldees' excellency, shall be as when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah.
This scripture clearly compares two other cities like as Babylon will be destroyed.
But the nations that bring their neck under the yoke of the king of Babylon, and serve him, those will I let remain still in their own land, saith the Lord; and they shall till it, and dwell therein.
This scripture clearly gives a warning to nations serving Babylon. Ancient Babylon is well known to be in Iraq and currently being excavated. That great city the Pentagon built just north of old Babylon now called Baghdad looks like a temple.
“Babylon hath been a golden cup in the Lord's hand, that made all the earth drunken: the nations have drunken of her wine; therefore the nations are mad.” This is a reference to the Rev. 14:8.
Set up the standard upon the walls of Babylon, make the watch strong, set up the watchmen, prepare the ambushes: for the Lord hath both devised and done that which he spake against the inhabitants of Babylon. This scripture clearly states Babylon is a walled fortress.
“One post shall run to meet another, and one messenger to meet another, to shew the king of Babylon that his city is taken at one end,...” This scripture clearly states Babylon is a CITY. Just as it does in Revelations
And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath.
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.
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.
So please stop calling America the “Great Babylon". Here are some suggestions on what and where Mystery Babylon is.
And here is the mind
which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains,
on which the woman sitteth. This suggest there are 7 cities which represent "Mystery Babylon" considering the (mountains where the woman sits) are are metaphors for cities the major centers of power in the beast system.
Rev. 13:1 "And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads..."

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.
Jerusalem-"Jerusalem is situated on seven hills" (recorded in The Book of Legends, edited by Bialik and Ravnitzky, p. 371, paragraph 111). And, so it was. Those "seven hills" are easy to identify. http://www.askelm.com/prophecy/p000201.htm
Rome NYC and London
DC are possibilities of Babylon along with 3 other cities (independent city-states} under the
same city-state corporation or from the :...seat of Satan is..." ( Revelation 16:10, Revelation 2:13) Like the ("Heptagon of the Global
Empire) is a seven-sided polygon as opposed to a
Trinity Global Empire.
Rome and NYC are clear enough to believe both represent "MysteryBabylon".
