Biblical Prophecy

Babylon Will Never be Rebuilt

Construction of Babylon began in the days of Nimrod as recorded in Genesis 10:10. It was the Tower of Babel that brought the judgment of God and confusion of languages. Babylon became the centre of idolatry and the Babylonian gods were worshipped under different names in other countries. Babylon rose to be the sole world empire in the days of Nebuchadnezzar after he defeated the Assyrians in 612BC and the Egyptians in 570BC. God used the Babylonian Empire as an instrument of judgment and was called “the hammer of the whole earth” (Jeremiah 50:23) and was also the first of four world empires that would occupy Jerusalem; a period that Jesus called the “times of the Gentiles” (Luke 21:24). Literal Babylon was conquered by Cyrus in 538BC and declined thereafter but “mystery Babylon” exists in the Roman Catholic Church which is the greatest centre of idolatry in the world and will be burned in the Tribulation period (Revelation chapters 1&18).
