The internet – the modern Tower of Babel?

by cymrusofren


A world that’s in danger of turning into a modern day digital Tower of Babel, where the English language alone becomes the linguistic cuckoo in the international nest, and diversity of language and hence opinion are slowly outlawed in favour of uniformity, can’t be a healthy place. A place where the wet dreams of the mass digital internet corporations such as Google, Microsoft and others will become increasingly forced on the world like a giant unasked for global technotronic orgasm.

According to tradition, a collection of people came to the land of Shinar following the great flood, under the direction of Nimrod. Nimrod is said to be the founder and the king of the first empire after the flood and is believed to be  a king that brought tyranny to the people while seeking to eliminate religious belief.  Under him, all the people spoke the same language. He started to build the Tower of Babel in order to reach the heavens in defiance of God.

Seeing this, God decided to step in (as you do) and confounded their speech so that they could no longer understand each other and scattered them around the world.

According to the King James version of the Bible:

4. And they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city, and a tower whose top is in the heavens; let us make a name for ourselves, lest we be scattered abroad over the face of the whole earth.”

5. But the Lord came down to see the city and the tower which the sons of men had built.

6. And the Lord said, “Indeed the people are one and they all have one language, and this is what they begin to do; now nothing that they propose to do will be withheld from them.

7. Come, let Us go down and there confuse their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.”

8. So the Lord scattered them abroad from there over the face of all the earth, and they ceased building the city.

9. Therefore its name is called Babel, because there the Lord confused the language of all the earth; and from there the Lord scattered them abroad over the face of all the earth.

In this, the Welsh language is as good a language as any to offer a  Brittonic, European or international  lingua franca linguistic alternative to the  grey monoglotic English language digital hegemony that the internet is fast becoming. Cymraeg yw iaith y nefoedd (welsh is the language of heaven). Google it.

Slightly worryingly also, the European Union Parliament building in Brussels (Strassberg, France)seems to be modelled on the original Tower of Babel (Twr Babel) design. It seems to even mimick the unfinished look of the original tower. Coincidence? Shabby chic architecture? Perhaps. Perhaps not. Have a look and make up your own minds.

A painting of the original Tower of Babel made in the 16th century:

The Tower of Babel by Pieter Bruegel

BIBLICAL MODEL: The founders of the European Union used this picture of the Tower of Babel by renaissance painter Peter Bruegel on some of its posters over the years with the phrase in French “Many tongues, one voice.” David Hathaway was told by a journalist that members of the European Parliament knew what the Tower of Babel was and what it meant.  Source

And here’s the lovely present day EU Parliament where we all get a say on what goes on there:

EU Parliament at Brussels

CARBON COPY: Is the Strasbourg Parliament building meant to look like the unfinished Tower of Babel mentioned in the Old Testament? If Scripture is a dead book and of no relevance, why is this based on a biblical design – according to Parliament officials themselves?  Source

Here you can see an original poster by the EU promoting the institution. A poster that was later removed due to numerous complaints: (note the upside down pentagrams encircling above, and the people are all robotic looking “blockheads”.)



‘EU uses biblical symbols’

If the EU meant to have a secular state, why would it openly used symbols based on an ancient biblical model which according to the scriptural text, are spiritually dark and end up being destroyed.  Source


The Vacant Seat Number 666 in the European Parliament

The Tower Building (named after the Tower of Babel) houses the Fifth Parliament of Europe. It is certainly a building of the Space Age. The seats are designed like the crew seats in the Star Trek space machines. The legislative amphitheater is arranged in a massive hemicircle and has 679 seats, each assigned to a particular lawmaker. For example, Seat 663 is assigned to Rep Souchet, 664 to Thomas-Mauro, 665 to Zizzner and 667 to Rep Cappato.

While these seats are allocated to Members, one seat remains unallocated and unoccupied. The number of that seat is 666. The relevant section of the seating-plan provided to each Member reads as follows:

660 Marchiani
661 Montfort
662 Quiero
663 Souchet
664 Thomas-Mauro
665 Zizzner
666 ——-
667 Cappato
668 Turco
669 Bonino
670 Pannella
671 Dupuis
672 Della Vedova

Revelation 13:18 states: “Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.” That is 666.

Today this Scripture is being fulfilled before our very eyes. The Antichrist’s seat will be occupied. The world awaits his full and final development. The Lord will destroy him by the spirit of His mouth (the Word of God) and by the brightness of His coming (2nd Thessalonians 2:8). The coming of the Lord draweth nigh.

The Brussels EU Parliament Building

The European Union (EU) parliament, consisting of 785 members, is in Brussels, Belgium. Quite magnificent, is it not? Interestingly, the seat numbered 666 is never occupied. Perhaps they are leaving it open for someone special? … The Antichrist!

Here’s something really bizarre. The E.U.’s chosen symbol is a Woman Riding the Beast…  

The above statue is located outside the EU office in Brussels — A WOMAN RIDING A BEAST!

WIDELY SYMBOLIC: The Women on the Beast sculpture is outside the front of the building of the Council of Ministers in Europe. It has also appeared on European bank notes and currency, but at national and European level and pieces of art featuring this image can be found on the Berlin Wall and in the parliaments of Brussels and Strasbourg.  Source

“…and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.” —Revelation 17:3

The depiction of the same symbol was reproduced on the centenary stamp of the E.U. and in a huge painting in the Parliament’s Tower Building in Brussels.

Isaiah 40:15 and 17, “Behold, the nations are as a drop of a bucket, and are counted as the small dust of the balance: behold, he taketh up the isles as a very little thing. … All nations before him are as nothing; and they are counted to him less than nothing, and vanity.


The purpose of the European Union’s creation was and is, ultimately, to create a European super-state or “United States of Europe,” as some have suggested naming it, that would eventually rival the United States in influence and military might. In 1999, Javier Solana became the High Representative for the European Union’s foreign and security policy, and through recommendation number 666, he was given emergency powers over the military wing of the European Union in 2000. All that currently remains to create a truly revived Roman Empire is the creation of a permanent executive branch of government and the full integration of the new Euro currency. With the introduction of the new European Union constitution, the groundwork is being laid for just such an executive branch and economic system.

“And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast…” — Revelation 13:4


Clearly, the European Union is preparing the way for the Man of Sin—The Antichrist! Few people realize just how saturated the United Nations and the European Union are with Satanism. The United Nations has all of their materials printed by The Lucis Trust, originally founded in 1922 as The Lucifer Trust

‘Who is the bull with crescent-shaped horns?’

In Greek mythology the woman clung to the Father of the Gods, who had disguised himself as a bull with crescent-shaped horns. The symbol for the Middle-East god Baal as we know him today from archaeology and from scripture. Zeus or Jupiter, as we know him from Greek or Roman culture was – a bull with great, crescent-shaped horns. And the ruling God of ancient Babylon and the Middle East was the Moon God, again depicted as a bull with crescent horns.”  Source

The Rape of Europe   (VERY IMPORTANT VIDEO)

Jul 21, 2014
Europe faces a tremendous challenge today. We are living in a most dangerous time politically and spiritually. The Bible is more relevant today than at any point in history. It actually reveals the truth behind the EU and what it means to us as Christians. (English & Polish subtitles are available)

IT IS BY DESIGN: In the Hathaway video whilst he was filming it, he says he asked a Strasbourg-born journalist if she understood the meaning of the tower. She said she did and she also confirmed that the members of the European Parliament also understood that it represented Babel from the Bible, and that the purpose of the European Union was to finish what Nimrud and the people together had failed to do some 3,500 years ago.


But, wait!  Lookie here:

Yet another “New” European Union Headquarters!!

EU President Unveils New EU Headquarters, A £280 Million ‘Gilded Cage’

With its “humane gathering place”, “diversity carpet” and £280m cost it is perhaps apt that it has been heralded as the building that “houses the heart of Europe”.

– EU president unveils new £280m ‘gilded cage‘ (Telegraph, June 24, 2011):

While Herman Van Rompuy, the EU president, has described his “Europa building” as a “jewel box”, David Cameron has been less enthusiastic dubbing it a “gilded cage”.

But perhaps even more unfortunate is the moniker the edifice, which will house Mr Van Rompuy’s presidential office and be home to future Brussels summits from 2014, has earned from EU officials.

Built as a state of the art glass and wood wing to an existing Art Deco building, the complex will be focused around a womblike central structure providing a home for summits and meetings of Brussels officials or diplomats.

And it this organic looking “urn” shape has already been nicknamed the “E-Uterus” by Council of the EU officials who will be working in the new building.

“It looks like a womb and, I am sure, many grand visions of Europe will be birthed from there,” quipped one official.

The building was unveiled to EU leaders by Mr Van Rompuy in a 14-page slick colour prospectus, produced at a cost of £100,000, when they sat down to a Brussels summit dinner on Thursday night formally dedicated to imposing a savage austerity programme on Greece.

Before discussing the Greek debt crisis that has threatened the existence of the euro, Mr Van Rompuy surprised EU leaders, who were tucking into a starter of scallops with artichoke vinaigrette, by trumpeting the venue, due to open in 2014, which will come complete with a “colourful woven carpet” to represent “European diversity”.

David Cameron, the Prime Minister, expressed his anger at the promotion of a grandiose Brussels project at a moment when EU leaders were supposed to be taking tough decisions that would lead to painful austerity measures imposed on millions of people.

“When you see a document being circulated, a great glossy brochure about some great new building for the European Council to sit in, it is immensely frustrating. You do wonder if these institutions get what every country, what every member of the public, is having to go through as we cut budgets and try make our finances add up,” he said.

I do think it’s important as we do that that the politicians aren’t sitting in some gilded cage asking everyone else to take responsibility.”

Bill Cash, chairman of the House of Commons European Scrutiny Committee said: “We need an investigation into the extravagance and the cost of this Aladdin’s palace. It is a cross between the bonfire of the vanities and Kafka’s Castle.”

Over the last 14 years, EU leaders, ministers and diplomats have been meeting in a building called the Justus Lipsius which is regarded as too cramped and drab to represent a body that has grown from 15 member states to 27.

The complex of buildings will also house the offices of Mr Van Rompuy, the president of the European Council, a job created by the Lisbon Treaty.

Mr Cameron, who had dined the night before with other leaders on black cod with onion ragout washed down with a 2009 Sancerre wine, said that he regretted that the decision, taken seven years ago, to build a new EU venue could not be reversed.

“I’ve only been to this building seven times in the last year but it seems to me to be to do a perfectly good job. The microphones work, there is plenty of room and the food isn’t bad either,” he said.

Emma Boon of the TaxPayers’ Alliance said: “We’re cutting back at home and we can’t afford more ludicrous spending by Eurocrats. This is yet more evidence that we shouldn’t hand any more money to Europe, they’re already wasting the millions we give them each day.

It is perhaps the most outlandish of the European Union’s excesses; a £130 million travelling circus that once a month sees the European Parliament decamp from Belgium to France….

In the 1980’s there was a show called Knight Rider. It was incredibly cool. And the big star of this show — and a lot of due respect to David Hasslehoff here — was the car, KITT. A self-aware supercomputer in a groovy black trans-am. And a watch which the car’s owner, Michael Knight, could talk to the car on.

In 2017, we have a watch we can talk to, send messages on, which reads our blood pressure and daily steps. And we’re on the verge of self-driving cars with AI’s.

The digital revolution is advancing at a rapid rate.

It’s amazing to think the the smartphones we all use are more powerful the the computers which were used to send men to the moons in the 1960’s. The average iPhone, for example, is a million times faster than the first home computer.

Social media is already making the world a far smaller, and quicker place, changing the way we live. The next big advancement is likely to be the pursuit of artificial intelligence and research into how (to) transfer human consciousness onto a supercomputer. A technology which may be as little as 20 years away.  (20 years from 2017 is 2027)

But many say technology is destroying us. They say we need to stop the advancement of technology, scale back, and go back to how things ‘used to be’. According to them technology is the cause of many of the problems in our world, and ultimately damages us. They say we need to limit and control it, stop advancing.

However, this is to fundamentally misunderstand technology and humanity. To understand this issue further, we need to go back in time.

To the brick, and the tower of Babel. The story of the tower of Babel, as told book of Genesis, is the story of when a bunch of people try to build a city with a tower up to the sky. But it’s more than this.

This is a story about technology.

Someone invented something new — bricks and mortar — which allowed people to make and do things they hadn’t been able to do before.

Sound familiar?

A powerful leader, Nimrod, who was essentially building an empire, gets his hands on new technology and begins to use it to set himself up as a god, crushing everybody and everything in his path.

Again, this might be familiar.

You see, there’s nothing wrong with the technology itself. Bricks were and continue to be a great invention, which advanced the human race forward in revolutionary ways. No one is going to argue the invention of a brick is a bad thing.

But in the wrong hands? It begins to become a weapon. A means to build an empire. A tool to hurt people. And a means to achieve what many argue has been the goal of the human race from the beginning…

to try and make ourselves gods.

But here’s the key point. The flaw is not the technology.

It’s with the people using it.

Or rather, abusing it.

The Heart of the Problem

But it’s open to abuse. Cyber-bullies, people who groom youngsters online. Scam artists conning people out of loads of money.

And all of these abuses have one thing in common.

They are the result of human decision.

Not technology. Human decision.

The decision to abuse someone is a human decision. Tweeting someone abuse or grooming a young person online is an human decision. Scamming someone is the act of a person making a decision to con someone out of money.

Human action, human decision causing pain and suffering to others.

Technology is merely the tool.  (The mistake the writer of this article makes here is that he fails to see who created and is using the tool, and the people. The devil and his minions are behind it.  Technology opens doors for Satan and his minions that are more powerful than humans can even comprehend.  When people choose to use the technology, they open those doors. The spirits swoop in and create havoc.)

We must be very careful before we blame technology for so many of the world’s problems, and say it’s ruining our world.

After all, imagine if the inventors of the brick had said that?

No buildings. No houses. No hospitals.

You see, at it’s best, technology advances the world. It makes it better. It makes us all better, healthier, more connected, more educated, with more freedom and knowledge. It transforms our lives.

And it gives us cool TV shows like Knight Rider, and great gadgets like the smartphone, smartwatches and, soon, self-driving cars.

It’s the abuse of technology by the human race which is so disastrous. And it’s not only criminals who abuse it. It’s empire builders.

Men and women, organisations who want to make themselves gods. Who want to dominate, oppress and keep people beneath them so their empire flourishes.

We all know who these are.

But the truth is we aren’t gods. None of us. And no amount of technological advancement, achievement or power will ever make us so.

Abuse of new technology does, ultimately, expose the imperfections of humanity.

And hopefully, we will begin to see this brokenness laid before us. Then see just the depth of our need for grace, mercy, forgiveness, and unconditional love and acceptance. Be responsible stewards of technology, not abusers.

My hope is we begin to learn this lesson.

Before it’s too late for any of us.


This marvellous modern-day Tower of Babel has been created to celebrate UNESCO’s naming of Buenos Aires as World Book Capital for 2011.

A spiraling tower made from thousands of books in dozens of languages is the latest landmark to dot the skyline of Buenos Aires, named the World Book Capital this year.

Called the Tower of Babel, the 82-foot (25-meter) high installation by Argentine artist Marta Minujin is made from 30,000 bricks, donated by readers, libraries and more than 50 embassies.

Climbing up its seven floors of metal scaffolding, visitors to the tower hear music composed by Minujin and the voice of the artist repeating the word ‘book’ in scores of languages.



‘Miniature from the Tower of Babel’, 2015

Barnaby Barford
By TDE Editorial Team / 11th November 2020

Barnaby Barford: Tower of Babel – True Staging   / Barnaby Barford, ‘Miniature from the Tower of Babel’, 2015  COURTESY: Barnaby Barford / PHOTOGRAPH: Dan Fontanelli

THIS WEEK’S OBJECT is a conceptual artwork that has its roots in craft and industrial design. It is up for sale as part of a single lot of eleven miniature slip-moulded buildings, each depicting a London shop-front, the image a photograph transfer printed onto the model. They were created for Barford’s celebrated installation, ‘Tower of Babel’, in the Victoria and Albert Museum. That Tower was a portrait of London – a teeming termite mound of commerce – as Barford saw it, in 2015, when the project was installed. He is not a shopper himself, but sees bemusedly how shopping has become our national pastime. As he said at the time, “London doesn’t look like Big Ben or St Paul’s, it looks like this. These shops are the wallpaper of our streets. This is London.”

The individual object itself is born out of Barnaby Barford’s interest in industrially-made ceramics and the history of decorative arts. A student at the Royal College of Arts, it was not the handling of clay that excited him, but what you could do with moulds and repetition. His first artworks were created from found objects and antique figurines, repainted and repurposed for subversive ends. Items teetering on kitsch became elements within satirical scenarios, their sweetness belying the kick of social or political comment. This miniature shares with those rescued figurines a respect and affection for industrial process. It was made in Stoke on Trent, the historic capital of British ceramics, in bone china, that quintessentially British product (the invention of Josiah Spode The Second around 1800). And it is beautifully finished – the edges touched up by hand with paint once the photographic image has been transferred, before the final firing. It shares a form with countless cute ceramic cottages and castles sold in gift shops around the country.

But what transforms the meaning of Barford’s building, beyond the obvious first shock of its contemporary decoration, is its place within Barford’s project. The artist cycled over 1,000 miles through London to photograph over 6,000 shop fronts, from High Barnet to Catford, from Hanwell to Manor Park. This became a massive exercise in social history, capturing the wildly various cultural make-up of this diverse city, with its dramatic discrepancies of wealth, and divergencies of taste and habit. Where the Tower of Babel was an act of hubris which God punished – by scattering human beings and separating them by languageLondon’s sprawling metropolis is a humble, ad hoc, accidental construction of individuals drawn from myriad races, speaking myriad languages. But Barford is no sentimentalist, so the Tower displayed graphically the hierarchies implicit in the city’s geography. He placed the boarded-up and abandoned shops in the bottom layer, leaving for the pinnacle Mayfair auction houses and other luxury emporia. Moreover, the prices of these individual buildings (sold to benefit the V&A), were set not according to the prestige of the artist, or the size of the object, but according to where they were placed on the pyramid: from £95 to £6,000, rising by minute gradations, just like the London property market. As we all know, London’s wealth, indeed the whole British economy, is driven by our national love of shopping for houses.


Burj Dubai and the Tower of Babel


Few building projects have received as much attention and fanfare as Dubai’s Burj Dubai 800 + meter skyscraper, that including its top tower will be the tallest building in the world.

A few weeks ago, I posted an article about the Burj tower, which when completed will contain residential and business properties selling at $3,500 to $4,000 per square foot.

But despite claims that the project is designed to be environmentally friendly, with specially designed windows and air conditioning to maintain constant temperatures within, many people are wondering if such buildings are really necessary.


Some say that such a project is only a display of opulence and vanity when so many people in the world are living impoverished lives– especially the thousands of foreign workers recruited from countries such as Sri Lanka, India, Bangladesh, and others. Many of these people are being paid as little as US $4 a day to perform backbreaking physical labor, often at peril to their lives. One skilled pipe fitter from India commented: “human beings are no more than machines here.”

“And behold these ascended and others descended the whole day; and if a brick should fall from their hands and get broken, they would all weep over it, and if a man fell and died, none of them would look at him.”  Jasher 9:28

The tower has been under construction since 2005; and work on the building is now entering its “final phases” which include interior finishing of residential apartments and offices, expected to proceed at a slower pace.

burj-dubaiAs noted in the previous article (Burj Tower In Dubai A Steep Investment During Tough Economic And Environmental Times), the tower’s design is such as to be able to withstand temperature extremes in the region, including variations between cooler night time temperatures and often extremely hot daytime ones (often surpassing 50 degrees C).

The building is also designed to withstand moderate earthquake tremors of up to level 6 on the Richter scale.

Although a grand opening of some sections of the tower is planned for the fall of 2009, the project is only slated for full completion in 2011. (2005 to 2011 is 6 years.  Six Days to create the world and the Lord Rested on the Seventh.)

The sheer height of the Burj tower (818 meters) and its needle-like shape, also brings another colossal tower to mind, the biblical Tower of Babel, said to have been built about the time of the “generations of Noah,” when the people were “all of one language and culture.”

As written in the Book of Genesis: “Come, let us build us a city, and a tower, with its top in heaven, and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered upon the face of the whole earth.”

Let’s not think that the purpose of this tower is to “reach into heaven,” as was idea of the Tower of Babel.

But vanity does have a role in these kinds of projects, the like of which are now commonplace in the Persian Gulf region; and often said to be at the expense of the local environment, as Dubai’s artificial island projects are reported to be.

Perhaps there are better ways to use the wealth that is still being generated by the production and sale of fossil fuels. One idea is ensuring that all people in the Middle East have access to fresh water.

If one would ask a westerner “Where is Mount Babel?” They would probably think the question is regarding a biblical or an archeological site in Iraq. But if one asks an Arab today, “where is Mount Babel?” They would tell you that its in Mecca and it has 7 massive buildings on top of it called “The Towers Of The House” that overlooks the Ka’ba, Islam’s holiest place.

You read it right.

There is no place on earth today where stands the largest structure in the world, used for a religious purpose, all worshipping in one tongue regardless of their mother tongue, and is holy to more than 1.5 billion people on earth that is called Mount Babel, except the one in Mecca overlooking the Ka’ba.

Mecca Clock Tower

Mecca, it is both a “city” and a “tower”:

And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.” (Genesis 11:4)

The photo above shows the massive structure the Arabs call “Al-Burj”, literally “the tower” and it sits on mount Babel overlooking the Ka’ba.Al-Sharq Al-Awasat, the prominent Middle East Newspaper, even names it as such “Mount Babel,”this to say about the massive project that was completed in Mecca:“The project Towers Of The House is the first project in Mecca … which carry seven towers … “Towers Of The House” is on the area of Mount Babel in Ajyad. The site overlooks directly on the Haram al-Sharif (Holy House [Ka’ba]).”

is also the largest tower in the world in terms of area. Contractor Bin Laden Group, Saudi Arabia … Classified as the largest building urban in terms of the total area on the face of the globe, where excess space land for the project 1.4 million square meters and consists of 7 towers”.

Just to illustrate how massive is this structure in comparison to the largest buildings in the world, see the pie-chart below:

The 1.4 million square meters 7 tower structure (7th from left to right) is 3 times larger than the tallest building in the world, the other “Burj” in Dubai.

Instead of waiting to see how the biblical verses regarding “Mystery Babylon” is fulfilled, many ill-informed westerners for centuries attributed the prophetic verses to the Vatican.

Our latest finding here is infinitesimal. We have gathered much to shed a new light to show the differences between Vatican and Mecca; the evidence is overwhelming, Mecca fits biblical Babylon and Vatican doesn’t. For example (out of hundreds), where in Vatican do we have “Mount Babel” which is also an observatory to monitor the movement of the moon and is called “Seven Towers of the House” reminiscent to the ancient name of Babel, which was called “The house of the seven lights of the earth”?

Where in the Vatican did they erect the largest tower on earth topped with a crescent and has observatories to monitor the planets and the moon? Where on Vatican hill, do they have an edifice decked with gold and silver, littered with statements that are biblically considered blasphemous, treated as if it was a woman, and has a massive gate made of pure gold that is literally called Bab-Illah (Babel) “The Gate to God”?

There is no place on earth that matches such requirements than Mecca.

Bab-Illah (The Gate of Allah) is the Gate to the Ka’ba (made of pure gold)

In what is probably the least examined sources in Islam by westerners, that discusses the Ka’ba as Babel “The Gate to God,” or Bab-Illah in Arabic, and is mentioned in the highest authority in Islam, the Hadith:

“… the Kaaba is the house of God and God’s sanctuary is Bab-Illah (the gate to God), so when they went there, they stood by the door in supplication …”

Babel, the English pronunciation, and Bab-Illah are identical in meaning. The difference is simply in the accent.

This Bab-Illah (Babel) is also depicted as a woman in Islam, exactly as John stated in Revelation 17:3. One Muslim writes a poem depicting as if the Ka’ba is a lover and is literally Bab-Illah (Babel) “the Gate to Allah”. He titles it “Look at my lover and your lover as she changes her dress”:

“I tremble in Thy beauty
Yearning to Thy black silk
Thy excellent belt a verse included
From the Quran a splendid writ
Granting Thee from Allah’s throne a high esteem
Which should suffice
He named Thee His Gate
He even loosened from Thy splendid robe pride
To dress Thee in splendor and majesty”

* translated by Walid Shoebat*

Another Muslim describes a Turkish pilgrim’s experience in the Hajj:

“Ahmed says that he had an eerie feeling when he saw the Kaaba in Mecca at first glance: “This is the house of Allah!”, These words were on his mind as he looked to the Black Stone and beside it was the door of the house of Allah: “Is there any door besides Bab-Illah (Gate to God)”

The most famous of Muhammadan poetry by Al-Bosayri in the eleventh century and then the most prominent poet in Arab history, Ahmad Shawqi, who is considered the Prince of poetry, describes Muhammad as “owning the key to Bab-Illah (the gate of Allah)”.

Muslim scholar Muhammad Said Ramadan Al-Buti, prior to his assassination by the Free Syrian Army explained the Hajj Pilgrimage as following:

“You go around the house of Allah, and you are in His hospitality. You are standing at His door, floating around on the doorstep. You are not on the door of the king, nor a great man. You are at the door of the Lord of kings. You are standing before the door of the creation in humiliation and indignity. You stand at Bab-Illah (the door of Allah’s) pride and His dignity. Weep since weeping is joyful there, but you do not cry, beg to creature, nor weep in humiliation in front of a creature. It’s difficult for the man that cringes to a brother or to anyone else. But on Bab-Illa (the door of Allah) what is the most enjoyable is to seclude myself and drench my forehead on the cusp of Allah Almighty, because my soul in his hand, and my whole self is his and my breath is in his hand and I’m on His doorstep, I tour around his home saying: “There is no god but Allah alone …”

For years, I had to endure listening to lectures on why Rome is the Harlot since it sits on seven hills, when truth is that Vatican City—the city where the Catholic Church is headquartered—is not built on seven hills, but on a hill separate from the seven hills of Rome: Vatican Hill, which is not even one of the seven upon which ancient Rome was built. Those hills are on the east side of the Tiber river; Vatican Hill is on the west.

Other cities are known for having been built on seven hills as well. Istanbul is known as the City on the Seven Hills, which – consciously following the model of Rome – was built on seven hills too. There are about seventy cities that claim to be on seven hills, some of which are Jerusalem, Amman, Tehran, Brussels, Kiev, Moscow and Madrid.
Yet none of these (including Rome) were destined for destruction in the Bible, yet Arabia is (Isaiah 21).

The Bible is also precise and pinpoints a geographic location for this “Babylon” as was predicted in Jeremiah 49:21, literally, “the Red Sea” which confirms Arabia’s destruction. This is also confirmed in Revelation 18 regarding the harlot city:

“And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning” (Revelation 18:9). “And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, ‘What [city is] like unto this great city!” (Revelation 18:18).

And once one studies Isaiah 34, there should be no doubt. In nearly identical language concerning Mystery Babylon in Revelation 17, 18:

“Its streams shall be turned into pitch and its dust into brimstone; its land shall become burning pitch. It shall not be quenched night or day; its smoke shall ascend forever” (Isaiah 34:8-10).

Incredibly, almost three millennia before the discovery of fuel oil, Isaiah predicted the burning of the very thing that was used in Babel to build a name for the rebellious ones – the pitch. Pitch is bitumen and tar, which technically is simply crude oil.

This judgment is not against Rome but “Edom” which extends from Teman to Dedan:

“Thus Says the Lord GOD; ‘Because that Edom hath dealt against the house of Judah by taking vengeance, and hath greatly offended, and revenged himself upon them. ‘Therefore thus Says the Lord GOD; ‘I will also stretch out mine hand upon Edom, and will cutt off man and beast from it; and I will make it desolate from Teman; and they of Dedan shall fall by the sword’” (Ezekiel 25:12-13).

The Lord vindicates Rome. He has made the geographical location of Mystery Babylon quite clear for anyone who would seek it out.
This destruction of Arabia is complete and fits the description made by several prophets whose prophecies correlate with Isaiah 34:

Therefore in one day her plagues will overtake her: death, mourning, and famine. She will be consumed by fire, for mighty is the Lord God who judges her. When the kings of the earth who committed adultery with her and shared her luxury see the smoke of her burning, they will weep and mourn over her. Terrified at her torment, they will stand far off and cry: ‘Woe! Woe, O great city, O Babylon, city of power! In one hour your doom has come! … Every sea captain, and all who travel by ship, the sailors, and all who earn their living from the sea, will stand far off. When they see the smoke of her burning, they will exclaim, ‘Was there ever a city like this great city?’” (Revelation 18:8-10, 17-18).

Apart from Sodom and Gomarrah, this type of utter destruction has never been seen in any other city, including Hiroshima and Nagasaki. “After her destruction, Babylon will merely be a home for demons, evil spirits, and scavenging desert creatures” (Revelation 18:1-2).

This is in line with the ancient Eastern perception that desolate desert wastelands were the dwelling place of demons and unclean spirits. The point being emphasized is that after Babylon is destroyed, there will be absolutely no human life ever found there again. Jeremiah agrees; he describes this:

So desert creatures and hyenas will live there, and there the owl will dwell. It will never again be inhabited or lived in from generation to generation” (Jeremiah 50:39). Isaiah confirms a similar fate: “It shall be a habitation of jackals” (Isaiah 34:14).

And again later, the destruction of Babylon is described as being absolute. Isaiah speaks of this event:

“For I will rise up against them, says the Lord of hosts, and cut off from Babylon its name and remnant, and offspring and prosperity, says the Lord … I will sweep it with the broom of destruction” (Isaiah 12:15).

The broom of destruction! Anyone who has seen footage of a nuclear explosion has seen the fury and the power of the ominous cloud that sweeps up everything in its path. To read more on how Mecca is destroyed, please read:
