Babylon the Great and the Antichrist are two separate Beasts. Last ruler has nothing to do with Babylon the Great, they are two different Beasts representing two different sins of mankind. She rides the Beast but is a separate Beast, Revelation 17:7. Babylon the Great represents materialism and Atheism which according to CS Lewis comes from Materialism. Look at Revelation 18:1-24 on the fall of Babylon the Great and see if this is not an exact description of modern day America. You got that right, America is the first Beast Babylon the Great. Of course it doesn’t matter what CS Lewis states since he is just a man. So to get our definition of Babylon the Great we find evidence in Daniel a definition of Babylon in the description of her false gods which were gods of :Gold, Silver, Bronze, Iron & Wood, Daniel 5:23.
This verse tells us Materialism, Armed Strength (iron), and the building of cities by the bringing together of the people of the earth into one purpose-to build the City of Man. America is this City of Man, America is the worship of the Gods of Babylon.
We see these same sins in the Tower of Babel in Genesis chapter 11:1-9.
We see the people of the earth streaming to this City of Man throughout the bible, to all speak one language, English. She is the City of Man ruled by an invisible Satan, Isaiah 14:1-21, although the Antichrist does not come from her. Babylon the Great and the Antichrist are two separate Beasts. Satan rules both Beasts by causing them to war against each other but the City of Man, Babylon the Great is defeated by the other Beast, led by a man, the Antichrist in which the Antichrist countries defeat Babylon the great by throwing fire on her head and devouring her in which she falls in one day, one hour by nukes, Revelation 17:16, 18:6-8, 18:1-24 and much more The person we say will be the Antichrist is the exact person they say will be the 12th Mahdi. We say in Revelation 9:18 1/3rd the earth will die from the plagues of fire smoke and sulfur (Nukes) Islam says the 12th Mahdi will cause such devastation. They accept that, Islam does. These are the Islamic prophecy, a direct polar opposite, very exact, which we call the Antichrist, they call their Messiah. We say the Antichrist will cause all to worship him and receive the mark, they say the 12th Mahdi will cause all to worship him.
There are two cities in competition with each other to build their cities on earth. One is the City of Man, now known to be America, the other is New Jerusalem, built by Jesus Christ himself who said “I go to prepare a place for you.” Both are cities and both are of similar size. The City of New Jerusalem is measure in scripture and it is 1400 miles by 1400 miles and as tall as wide shaped like a giant mountain, Revelation 21:16-17.
Babylon the Great and the Antichrist are two separate Beasts. One is America, the other Beast is Islam and the Antichrist and False Prophet will both rise through Islam. The Antichrist will be the prophesied 12th Mahdi and the False Prophet will be a man that claims he is Jesus Christ returned in the flesh. But according to scripture this ime Jesus does not return as a humble servant man but returns as the King of Kings and shall be seen as lightning is from the East to the West, Matthew 24:25-27. Yet Islam’s own prophesies state clearly that this same Jesus (sic) will return and become an assistant to the 12th Mahdi assisting in political war to conquer the earth and force the world to submit to Islam. This Jesus has their name they clam is jesus but his name is Isa which means Jesus in Arabic. There is no doubt in my mind this prophesied 12th Mahdi is not only the prophesied Antichrist but his assistant Isa is the prophesied False Prophet. God calls Babylon the Great the all consuming mountain, Jeremiah 51:25. But God tells Satan his Babylon the Great will not build her cities throughout the earth. For Jesus Christ holds title deed to the earth and the universe. Only the Christ followers will build their cities on earth modeling them after the city built by Jesus Christ that comes down out of heaven called New Jerusalem, Revelation 21:1-27, Isaiah 14:21.
But many Christians are stuck because of bad teachers and bad preachers that have instilled false teachings of biblical prophecy at a time when God had no intention for the prophecies to be revealed to mankind. But now things have changed and there is a huge tidal wave of revelations being reveled to mankind and the Christian Pharisees cannot stop it from being revealed because of the new found liberty’s with the Internet age. in the old days they could block the preachers without the degrees, but now they cannot and God is now once again speaking to mankind.
