Which city is this that reigns over all the kings of the earth? Rome? New York? Mecca?
There are over 90 Characteristics given in the book of Revelation about the city of Mystery Babylon, and none of these three cities meets all of the criteria.
But there is one city that does…or should I say will.
Too often people look for the city of Mystery Babylon in history, or in their present day, as opposed to what the scriptures say we will see in the future.
The Bible tells us exactly which city will be the capital city of the Antichrist in the last days, it tells us the city that will promote the Antichrist’s worship to the rest of the world, and the city in which the Antichrist will institute the greatest persecution of all time.
That city is Jerusalem.
The city of Mystery Babylon will be Jerusalem when it embraces the Antichrist as if he was their long awaited Messiah. The reason that she is referred to as a “harlot” is the same reason she was referred to as a harlot hundreds of times in scripture, because she is committing spiritual adultery.
“How is the faithful city become an harlot! – Isaiah 1:21a
Consider just a few similarities between Mystery Babylon and Jerusalem:
1.) Mystery Babylon is said to kill the prophets in Revelation 18:24.
Yet the only city that has ever been recorded as killing the prophets is Jerusalem: “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets…” – Matthew 23:37
2.) The Bible says that Mystery Babylon will be held accountable for ALL the righteous blood shed on the earth.
Yet Jesus said the exact same thing about Jerusalem: “That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth…” – Mat 23:35a
This is just scratching the surface.
In the last days the Antichrist will seek to convince the Jews that their Messiah has finally come, he will seek to make them, and the rest of the world think that the kingdom age has begun.
This is the only view of Mystery Babylon that can withstand a meticulous verse by verse examination.
