According to the Old Testament prophet Jeremiah and the New Testament prophet, the Apostle John, the literal City of Babylon is to be destroyed by God using fire (Jeremiah 51; Revelation 18). Thereafter, Babylon is never to be inhabited during the millennial reign of the Lord Jesus Christ as He rules the world from Jerusalem. Ancient Babylon was NEVER destroyed by fire as it was part of the Roman Empire during the First Century. Therefore, it must be rebuilt to then ultimately be destroyed by fire that the prophecies may be literally fulfilled. Well, here it is: the Pope’s United Nations beginning the rebuilding of Babylon—for the final Pope to be murdered, then to rise from the dead to be The Antichrist (I John 2:18) then to destroy Rome and subsequently rule all nations from Babylon, his commercial and political capital of the world!
