Q. Could Dubai be the New Babylon? I’ve been reading up on the net about Dubai and the enormity of its construction and all the money that is there. It really has popped out of nowhere in the last 20 years. Do you think it could be?
A. The construction projects in Dubai stagger the imagination. But I believe the Bible says that the latter days Babylon will be a thousand miles to the North, on the site of the original one between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers. It’s called the Plains of Shinar, or Mesopotamia (which means land between the rivers).
