Blog note. I have posted many previous blogs and third-party written articles about the rise of NEOM (Babylon) in Saudi Arabia. Although NEOM was not specifically mentioned in this particular article, it was alluded to since it is part of Bin Salman’s Vision 2030 plan to modernize Saudi Arabia. If you have not read any of my previous blogs or articles, NEOM is the world’s largest planned city (in terms of square miles or kilometers) in a corner of the country flanked by the Sea of Aqaba and the Red Sed. This visionary city or Babylon-in-the-desert is so grand in planned design that it can’t be described in just one article. Hence, I have included a detailed analysis in previous, sequential blogs. You can research this development yourself. The “great city” as described in the Bible’s book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ receives a very large portion of prophetic / eschatological attention. NEOM, in Saudi Arabia, meets every description of Babylon described in Revelation. It has seven mountains, it will accept all religions of the world, it has extreme wealth and technology, it is a world class city that will attract all nations, tribes, tongues, nationalities, it will feature a “delicious” lifestyle based on extremely attractive living conditions and wealth. Any reference to Jesus Christ is completely missing or absent. Proselytizing (attempts to convert someone from one religion to another) is strictly prohibited. The businessmen who trade with and help build NEOM will become fabulously wealthy. The world’s largest sovereign wealth/investment fund is being established ($2 Trillion) to fund NEOM’s launch and growth. As previously stated, there is a wealth of evidence to support the startup and growth of NEOM as being the “fabled” city of the future as described in Revelation. When is all this supposed to start? Bin Salman has gone on record indicating 2020. That is a short sixteen (16) months away. If you have read some of my recent blogs, you will quickly recall that there are several other “ominous” events planned to be enforced worldwide in 2020 that coincide with the establishment of NEOM in Saudi Arabia. Babylon is NEOM, not Rome, not Vatican City, not Mecca. End of note.
Will Saudi Arabia trump $500bn Neom at second FII event?

Public Investment Fund announces date for second Future Investment Initiative to be held in Saudi capital Riyadh. The second Future Investment Initiative (FII) will take place in Riyadh in October 2018, following the success of the inaugural event which saw the launch of Saudi Arabia’s $500 billion Neom City project.
Organised by the Public Investment Fund (PIF), the event will take place from October 23-25 in the Saudi capital and will bring together “renowned visionaries with the power to shape the future of global investment”. They will discuss three themes – Investing in Transformation; Technology as Opportunity; and Advancing Human Potential, a statement said.
FII was launched last year as an international platform for expert-led debate between investors, innovators and governments as well as economic leaders. The inaugural event in 2017 saw over 3,800 participants from more than 90 countries, join in the discussions and debates to explore future developments in the world economy, including investment trends around areas such as energy, infrastructure, artificial intelligence and robotics as well as new growth areas.
The second edition aims to continue building active, global networks of influential actors to further explore the emerging industries that will shape the global economy and investment environment over the coming decades, the statement added. Yasir Al Rumayyan, managing director of PIF, said: “After the success of the inaugural event, we are pleased to announce the 2018 edition of the Future Investment Initiative.
“The Public Investment Fund is developing into one of the world’s leading and most impactful sovereign wealth funds, and we look forward continuing to build strong strategic partnerships while also showcasing the opportunity for private sector participation as Saudi Arabia’s economy continues to expand and diversify.”
Last year’s FII saw the launch of the Public Investment Fund Program (2018-2020), one of 12 Vision 2030 Vision Realization Programs, which will act as a roadmap to help drive the economic diversification in the kingdom and transform Saudi Arabia into a global investment powerhouse. In addition, an expo opened following the launch of Neom by Prince Mohammad bin Salman Al-Saud, Crown Prince, Deputy Prime Minister, chairman of the Council of Economic and Development Affairs and of PIF.
