Thoughts on Mystery Babylon and the Antichrist’s Triumphal Entry

I started out answering some emails sent in about Mystery Babylon, particularly about whether its a port city or not and if Jerusalem or Mecca can qualify if it is, (its not). I then talk about the concept of the gentiles “trampling” the city for 42 months in Rev 11:2 and Luke 21. This naturally led to a rambling discussion of a possible timeline of the Antichrist’s triumphal entry which as we see is implied in Daniel 11-12. Lot’s of stuff going on in this one.

Dr. J. Paul Tanner’s Paper on Future Apostate Jerusalem as Mystery Babylon

Dr. J. Paul Tanner published a paper called A Proposal for (Future) Apostate Jerusalem’s Role in a Progressive Dispensational Eschatology The paper was presented at the SW Regional meeting of the Evangelical Theological Society. Fort Worth, TX, Mar 31, 2017 and is published in the Journal for Evangelical Theological Society.

My book Mystery Babylon was quoted a few times in the paper and I think Dr. Tanner did an excellent job at presenting the case as usual. Its good to see the theory getting some attention in the scholarly communities and I hope to see more of the same.

This is my first post in a few years. I am still not quite sure how much I will be posting but I have been kicking around a few ideas, and feel like I might have a bit more to say in the future, specifically about Bible prophecy. As of right now though, most of my ideas are half baked and need a lot of research. Probably a good idea would be to sign up for the email list on this page in case there are important updates.

Thanks to everyone for their patience.

Which city is this that reigns over all the kings of the earth? Rome? New York? Mecca?

 (Rev 18:17-18)  For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off,  And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city!

For in one hour so great riches is come to nought.

The suddenness of the cities destruction is expressed, here it is described as having occurred in one hour, although it is expressed as “one day” in other places in this chapter. Continue reading “Mystery Babylon Study – Part 8 – Rev 18:17-24”
