They will hate the harlot and destroy it. Babylon the Great is anywhere between Rome - Paris - London - New York, or all together, depending on
It is apparent the 10 rogue nations hate the West. The harlot rides the beast and its 7 heads, whoever they might be. The 10 horns are different
smaller entities, kings who still haven't received power, and wait their moment - one prophetic hour or 2 weeks. Someone would have given them enough
weaponry for that. Not only leaked Soviet nukes but also more sophisticated Extraterrestrial technology such as we see exists in Iranian saucers.
That doesn't mean the Antichrist will rise automatically from the horns. But they clear the way for the antichrist. According to Chuck Missler and
others, he will rise from Assyria (Syria, Lebanon, Northern Iraq, S. Turkey). According to the Muslim own tradition (that I do not believe to be
God-inspired, put it here for reference only) the Dajjal or antichrist will rise from somewhere between Iraq and Syria. We can speculate a lot whether
it is shia, sunni (Al Qaeda) that uproot horns, or what. We can search the antichrist elsewhere on the globe. This post is not meant for that to
identify someone that is obviously smart enough not to reveal himself in advance.
What I want to give for reflection, is the fact these countries stretched from Venezuela, Cuba and Nicaragua, to Iran, Syria, Pakistan, to North Korea
(you may include more) are terribly well armed and await one synchronized moment for attack.
You may want to review that excellent analyzes of the Rapture connected with the Fall of Babylon.
(scroll down to the Bible research that had the link to a larger article only on
Without agreeing on everything (NY is just one possibility for Babylon), let take the reasoning of that Bible researcher seriously. If so, seems the
Western intervention in these countries is not only not enough, but too late may be. Still there is no Rapture on the scene.
The day it comes, everything will change. There are at least 2 separate raptures if not more: 144,000 and the people standing on the sea of glass
mixed with fire. Possibly, the evacuation of Babylon is a rapture itself between the two - Reveation 14. And if they are performed with Elijah
chariots, i.e. with spaceships, I will not refuse to board them out of prejudices or false understanding of God's intervention in history.
