Babylon the great “The Mother of Harlots” Timing of Destruction.
According to Scripture Babylon the Great “The Mother of Harlots” will be Destroyed at the Very End of the Last 3 1/2 years. (See: Revelation 16:17-21 (KJV)
Scripture seems to indicates that this Babylon is the Worldwide Capitalistic and Materialistic system as described in Rev. 17-18. Today America seems to epitomize Babylon the great “The Mother of Harlots” as other Identities have in the past. But the Bible is clear about “The CITIES of the NATIONS FELL. It does Not apply to America only. (If at all.)
And since this occurs (The Destruction of Babylon) at the End of the Last Seven Years can we let up on the “Immediate Destruction of Babylon” train of thought. And if it turns out that America falls before then, all the more proof that she was not Babylon. (There are dozens of Books and Websites proclaiming America as BTW. Beware.)
The Ten Kings receive power one hour with the Beast and the eliminating of 3 of those Kings could happen immediately thereafter? (That could be fine tuned.) But God uses the Beast and the 7 kings to destroy Babylon at the end. “These shall hate the whore and make her Desolate” “God hath put in their hearts to fulfill His will and to agree, and to give their power unto the beast.”
Note: It mentions the 3 of the 10 kings are subdued and in another place it says, plucked up by the roots but they still seem to be mentioned later. So it may be safe that they are brought under submission and possibly the heads of state are removed? I’m mentioning this just so we can stay open on certain aspects. Daniel 7:24 (KJV) 24 And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings. Dan. 2:44; 17:12-17).
So after the Destruction of Babylon is the Second Coming, Resurrection, Armageddon and on into the Millennium. Other small things happen but those are the Basics.
1 Corinthians 13:12-13 (KJV) 12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known. 13 And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.
