Q. Love your site. So informative in so many areas. My Pastor has just asked me to teach a class on prophecy so I will be visiting often. Anyways, my question: since we are now going to send in 20,000 more troops in hopes to stabilize Baghdad, could this be the beginning of calm in the area in order to rebuild actual Babylon (50 miles north) or is Baghdad the Babylon in Revelation?
I actually believe Babylon is Babylon because the bible says so, but I would love your opinion. Isn’t it exciting to see how close we are to our Lord’s return?
A. There’s no Biblical reason to believe that the Babylon of Revelation is anything other than … Babylon. The current push to stabilize Baghdad is to stabilize the country and end the war. And yes, the closeness of the Lord’s return is exciting.
