Commentary: Revelation 17:9 clears up the symbolism of the seven heads. They are the seven (7) mountains where Babylon resides, sits or rests upon. These could be individual mountains, mountain ranges or mountains within a mountain range. In any case, these are mountains and not hills. Physical Babylon city rests nestled with seven (7) physical, geographic mountains. There are many verses in chapter 18 (15, 17, 19 and 21) which indicate that Babylon city is also within easy eyesight of sea(s) or ocean(s). As indicated, physical Babylon city rests within seven (7) mountains that are in very close proximity to sea routes. Later in this book, a detailed analysis is provided regarding this author’s discerning case for the great city of NEOM (in Saudi Arabia) to be the future Babylon as described in the Revelation of Jesus Christ.
