Who is “Mystery” Babylon?

Babylon the Great is mentioned frequently in the Bible, more than any other nation except Israel itself. Four chapters are devoted entirely to the subject with frequent references in many others. Revelations 17 and 18 as well as Jeremiah 50 and 51, and Isaiah 13, 14, and 47 all discuss it in detail. It is important to note that Jeremiah and Isaiah are talking about a future Babylon in those chapters. This is made clear as they reference her as the “Daughter of Babylon” as well as other descriptions that would not be accurate when referring to ancient Babylon. This extensive coverage through scripture provides us with a detailed description of Babylon the Great that we can analyze for clues to its identity. Note the similarity of the United States as recorded in the following prophecies……..

Russia Hardens Military Thinking

And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. (Mathew 24:6)

“In response to the harder stance confirmed at NATO’s summit last week in Wales, Russian officials are revisiting the country’s war doctrine, mulling its nuclear strategy and restructuring its military-industrial complex.

Analysts said a new doctrine — a strategy document that works as the prism through which a country evaluates and responds to threats — could re-establish NATO as Russia’s primary threat and effectively set Russia’s defense policy toward combatting it. Beyond that, the doctrine would formalize within Moscow’s playbook the kind of small-scale destabilizing actions used in Russia’s annexation of Crimea and continued incursions into eastern Ukraine, they said.”

And elsewere in the acticle:

“Voices swiftly surfaced advocating a hard line. Retired General Yury Yakubov, who serves as an advisor at the Russian Defense Ministry, said last week the doctrine should list NATO not only as the primary threat to Russia, but detail the scenarios in which preemptive nuclear strikes against the alliance would be on the table.”
