“...it will usher in the rebuilding of the city of Babylon to a modern city and home base of Islam and what is called THE WHORE OF BABYLON in the Bible...
God used the heathen nations of Assyria and Babylon as instruments of judgement upon His people when they strayed from Him. After the rapture, a global Islamic caliphate could become a tool of the tribulation used by God upon those left behind who have failed to accept Jesus Christ as their savior.
That makes far more sense to me than the theory that the Catholic church is the Whore of Babylon. Islam (or some form of it) could easily become the world’s religion, since Islam proselytizes by deadly force, and those left behind will not have the conviction of the Holy Spirit to resist.
I have thought about the whore of Babylon being Islam. Could be. We shall see. Maybe not in my lifetime though.
