A History Lesson – Nimrod, Semiramis and the First Babylon
Part 1: “Back to the Future”:
Yes, we must go ALL THE WAY BACK to the time of Noah and the re-birth of civilization, after the Great Flood. To understand the future, we must first understand the past.
Prior to the Great Flood, the Bible tells us that the earth had become overrun by genetically corrupted human hybrids and animals. God’s creation of man and animals had become so corrupted that evil was continuous and rampant. Men thought of nothing else, but of evil. This occurred between the creation of Adam of Eve and until the time of the Great Flood. We also know that Satan and some of his angels (sons of God) were the perpetrators of this corruption of men on the earth.
.“And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of earth, and daughters were born unto them. That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown. And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And it repented the LORD that he had made man on earth, and it grieved him at his heart. And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man and beast, and the creeping thing, and fowls of the air; for it repententh me that I have made them.” (Gen. 6:1-2, 4-7). (Emphasis added).
“The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon earth. And God said unto Noah, The end of flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.” (Gen. 6:11-13)
After God destroyed the existing civilization(s) of evil men around the known world by a Great Flood that covered the entire earth, he elected to spare one man (Noah) and his direct family. “But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD. These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God. And Noah begat three sons, Shem, Ham. And Japheth.” (Gen. 6:8-10).
Part 2: “A Second Chance Given to Men”:
Once the ark settled and the waters receded, God gave mankind a second chance through the lineage and genetics of Noah.
“And God spake unto Noah, saying, Go forth with thee every living thing that is with thee, of all flesh, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth; that they may breed abundantly in the earth, and be fruitful, and multiply upon the earth. And Noah went forth, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons’ wives with him: Every beast, every creeping thing, and every fowl, and whatsoever creepeth upon the earth, after their kinds, went forth out of the ark. And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth.” (Gen. 8:16-19, 9:1).
“These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God. And Noah begat three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth.” (Gen. 6:9-10).
In essence, this was God’s ‘restocking program.’ Through the uncorrupted, unspoiled genetics of Noah and the genetically perfect male and female animal pairs he kept on the ark, God was able to repopulate the earth and to continue with the animal kingdom he originally created. God started over with a clean, genetic slate, as he originally intended. Through Noah’s original three sons, Shem, Ham and Japheth, the whole world was repopulated through many generations. “These are the three sons of Noah: and of them was the whole earth overspread. These are the families of the sons of Noah, after their generations, in their nations divided in the earth after the flood.” (Gen. 9:19).
Part 3: “Evil Wastes No Time”:
Satan is always standing at the ready to corrupt and deceive mankind. He wasted no time interceding in man’s affairs once again. It took him only two generations, after Noah’s son, Ham, to pollute mankind.
Noah begat Ham begat Cush begat Nimrod (Gen. 10:1, 10:6, 10:8).
Nimrod is the first foreshadowing of an antichrist-like figure (one world leader that defies God and promotes a false mystery religion).
“And Cush begat Nimrod: he began to be a mighty one in the earth. He was a mighty hunter before the LORD: wherefore it is said, Even as Nimrod the mighty hunter before the LORD. And the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, and Erech, and Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar.” (Gen. 10:8-10). (Emphasis added).
Satan chooses Nimrod to manifest his evil and defiance towards God. In the verse above, is the first instance of the word “kingdom” used in Genesis, after the flood. Historians have noted the conquests of peoples and forced movement of them into cities, under his control. The glorious jewel of his kingdom was known as Babel. Every empire has a kingdom or capital, and Babel was Nimrod’s crown jewel and a monument to himself. Through conquest, warfare and slavery, Nimrod grew the cities under his dominion. Historians agree that this was the beginning of the Sumerian culture, empire and “mystery religion,” and the first known empire on the earth after the flood.
Part 4: “The Crown Jewel of the Empire, the First World Capital, the Great City and Tower . . . Babel”:
What did Nimrod do? Through conquest, warfare and slavery, Nimrod was able to corral people in the plain (land) of Shinar (modern day Iraq).
What did Nimrod build? Since there was only one language among all peoples on the earth after the flood, Nimrod was able to architect, design, organize, administer and build a great “tower that would reach heaven.” Architects, planners, builders, foremen, brick masons, slaves and bureaucrats all spoke the same language and could follow the same game plan dictated by Nimrod’s satanic vision and influence. This great tower was built surrounded by a glorious and magnificent city. This city was built expressly in defiance of God, for the glorification of man and for the worship of the gods (mystery religion).
What motivated Nimrod to do this? First of all, he was an imposingly large man, skilled in hunting not only animals but in men as well. He was a hunter and killer by instinct and by skills. Secondly, he rejected his great-grandfather’s God “I AM” and instead worshipped false idols, false gods and himself. Nimrod harbored resentment, anger and fury towards “I AM” because of the destruction of evil men before the flood. Nimrod had heard the stories of the great flood, passed down from Noah to Ham to Cush to him.
Nimrod wanted to build a monument to himself, through a tower that would reach into heaven. This structure would make a name for himself and show his greatness to those he conquered. This tower would glorify his city and capital. This tower would rise so high, that if God sent another flood, Nimrod could rise above the flood and defy God. Nimrod was perfectly aware that God specifically instructed his grandfather, Noah, to scatter about the earth and repopulate it. Nimrod rejected God’s instructions and instead, gathered and forced his conquered peoples to live in cities. He could only govern and rule over people safely guarded (trapped, imprisoned) in walled cities. People living in these cities were forced to rely on Nimrod, and his dictatorship, for their survival. They could no longer provide a living for themselves, having been taken away from the livelihood they had been instructed to obtain, from God. Nimrod supplanted God, in every way, of the people he conquered. This was and still is Satan’s eternal plan and will play out again during the Tribulation period described in the book of Revelation. What proof in the Bible is there for this?
“And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech. And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there. And they said to one another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them thoroughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for morter. 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 the face of the whole earth.” (Gen. 11:1-4). (Emphasis added).
Genesis 11:5-9 indicates that God saw what Nimrod and these men were doing and instead of destroying them, he changed their one language into many languages. This resulted in no one being able to communicate with one another. Architects couldn’t speak with planners, who couldn’t speak with builders, who couldn’t speak with foremen, who couldn’t speak with brick masons, who couldn’t speak with slaves, etc. They gave up trying to finish building the tower. God scattered these men once again so they could not commune again to build similar things. Genesis, verse 11:9 indicates that this city was called Babel, “Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.” (Emphasis added).
Part 5: Historical accounts for Nimrod, Semiramis (his wife) and Mystery Religion Babylon:
[Author’s note:] It is not the intent of this book to provide a detailed, historical analysis of Nimrod or the Sumerian culture and religion. There are many books and resources available that discuss these subjects in detail. Through historical records and research, it is believed that all of the world’s false religious ideologies, philosophies and doctrines originated, in one form or another, from the Sumerian culture, in the Mesopotamian Valley, and from Babel specifically. Satan provided mankind with the idolatrous and blasphemous seeds of the ‘mystery religion’ at this time. Another Christian writer, Dr. Steven Merrill MD, has done a fantastic amount of research and writing concerning the person of Nimrod, his wife Semiramis and the mystery religion of Babylon that followed along with the dispersion of people from Babel. Dr. Merrill’s excellent book, “Nimrod – Darkness in the Cradle of Civilization,” (Xulon Press), provides a compelling account of this evil man. The following are excerpts from Dr. Merrill’s book.
Pages 331 – 333. No centralized government ruled in Mesopotamia prior to 3000 BC. Historians agree the city of Kish was one of the first cities to develop in the Sumerian civilization. Biblical records identify Nimrod as the son of Cush and grandson of Ham. Nimrods father, Cush probably founded the city of Kish (Kush) and named it after himself.
The Book of Genesis describes eight cities Nimrod either conquered or founded. Eusebius records Ninus (another name for Nimrod) as the first king to rule in Assyria. The prophet Micah referred to Assyria as the land of Nimrod, suggesting Nimrod’s previous control of this land. The first prominent King of Kish, Etana, was the first to conquer the large cities of Mesopotamia and place them under his rule. The exploits of King Etana, noted in extra-Biblical history, approximate those attributed to the Biblical Nimrod, and therefore may indicate these men are one in the same. Many extra-Biblical sources credit Nimrod as the man to develop weapons of warfare. The Jerusalem Targum notes the following about this man: “He was powerful in hunting and in wickedness before the Lord, for he was a hunter of the sons of men, and he said to them, ‘Depart from the judgement of the Lord, and adhere to the judgement of Nimrod!’ Therefore is it said . . .’As Nimrod [is] the strong one, strong in hunting, and in wickedness before the Lord.’’’
Nimrod is noted as the first to assemble armies for conquest in the post-flood world. He was the first King to conquer the ancient world. “Nimrod was the first who carried on war against his neighbors and he conquered all nations from Assyria to Lybia, as they were yet unacquainted with the arts of war.” All sources describe Nimrod as having an insatiable lust for power and dominion over people. He conquered many large cities and placed them under his authority. The Greek historian Diodorus lived as a contemporary of Julius Caesar. His record states Ninus (Nimrod) built the great city of Ninevah and gave it his name. Diodorus also recorded Ninus as a great warrior who subdued Asia. Josephus, a Jewish historian, noted Nimrod was a tyrant, demanding complete control of his people. He brought people into complete dependence upon him. The Roman historian Justin stated the following about Nimrod: “Ninus strengthened the greatness of his acquired dominion by continued possession. Having subdued, therefore, his neighbors. . .he went forth against other tribes and every new victory paved the way for another. He subdued all peoples of the east.”

Page 335-336. The hideous death and dismemberment of Nimrod likely caused his followers to fear Shem and his Holy God. Therefore, one might reasonably assume the false religion of Babylon went underground at that time. It became known as the mystery religion of Babylon, because its adherents practiced it in secret. The tongues of seventy different languages disseminated this mystery religion throughout the entire world following God’s judgement at Babel. Indeed, it became the foundation for all religions and philosophies that have fiercely opposed the One True God.
Some have written Nimrod was a giant black Nephilim (human hybrid resulting from fallen angelic sexual relations with women), and they have hypothesized his enormous size was the result of genetic characteristics he inherited from his grandmother. The wife of Ham purportedly descended from Cain – the first son of Adam, who murdered his younger brother Abel. Genesis, Chapter 6, describes the bizarre corruption of Cain’s lineage by demonic angels. The resulting giant progeny were called Nephilim, and they were infamous for their wickedness in the antediluvian world. The Sumerians worshipped them as gods.
The Hebrew word Nimrod means, ‘to rebel,’ or to revolt.’ That definition illustrates the story of this man’s life. He was the chief instigator of the rebellion against God and is credited for building the Tower of Babel.
Pages 340 – 341. Semiramis became a powerful ruler in Mesopotamia following the death of her husband Nimrod. Semiramis wore a crown symbolizing the turreted wall – the first known monarch to wear such a crown. The Sumerian name Sammur-amat was the original name of this woman. The name is translated ‘Gift of the sea.’ The first part of this name, Sammur, becomes Shinar when translated into Hebrew. The land of Shinar is the Biblical name for the region of southern Mesopotamia. People of this land were called Sumerians – a name also derived from Sammur. Both the Sumerians and their land of Shinar (Sumer) were named after this notorious woman. The Sumerians were the first to develop cities in this present world. Most anthropologists credit them with beginning human civilization. Semiramis ruled for more than forty years after Nimrod’s death.
Pages 355, 356, 358, 360. All attempts to trace the origin of goddess worship lead ultimately to one single woman of ancient history – Semiramis. She promoted deification of Nimrod and herself after his death. She contributed substantially to the mystery religion of Babylon. God’s judgement and Nimrod’s execution forced the mystery religion underground. Its adherents realized the danger of practicing their religion in the public domain. Hence, the name ‘mystery religion of Babylon’ refers to its secretive nature. Semiramis commanded total authority over her subjects and clandestinely indoctrinated the priesthood with this mystery religion. Priests and astrologers obeyed her commands, aggressively marketing the mystery religion. Ancient Sumerians knew Semiramis as the goddess Inanna. Ancient Babylonians knew Inanna as Ishtar. The world of antiquity deified Semiramis as Queen of Heaven and Queen of the gods. Goddess worship became wildly popular wherever it was introduced. Nations became intoxicated with the worship of this woman. The mystery religion of Babylon incorporated human deification, Satan worship, and astrology in cultic religious services. Astrologers corrupted the signs of the zodiac to authenticate their new religion. The mystery religion of Babylon was replete with cultic rituals of prostitution, idol worship, child sacrifice, magic, divination, and animal sacrifice. Priests, diviners, magicians and prostitutes all participated regularly in the cultic rituals. The Bible is filled with examples of mediums, astrologers, diviners, temple prostitutes, and child sacrifice, which were all associated with this mystery religion in various civilizations of the ancient world.
Part 6: Conclusion:
Biblical and historical accounts attribute the world’s first antichrist-like person to Nimrod, the world’s mystery religion to Semiramis – “the Queen of Heaven” and the city surrounding the Tower of Babel as the world’s first capital of an empire. Interestingly, Semiramis served the role as a “false prophet” for Nimrod and instigated the spread of Babylon’s mystery religion. The Bible’s book of Revelation is complete with many verses referencing a future time, during the Tribulation, when another city, mystery religion, dictatorial ruler and empire will arise and dominate the world. Their influence on the world will be EXACTLY as that during Nimrod’s time. It is the intent of this book to suggest that the future version of Nimrod’s vision is becoming manifest in the vision and creation of the great city being called NEOM, in the land of Shur (modern day Saudi Arabia). In order to understand this future city in the period known as the Tribulation, we have to understand first the world of Nimrod, Semiramis and Babel. NEOM will arise from the sands and mountains in what is known today as Saudi Arabia!
Babylon is NEOM, not Mecca, not Rome and not Vatican City
When presenting a multitude of biblical evidence, people still angrily deny it because they etched in their minds a verse or two they say prove Babylon is Rome, while adhering to a centuries-old theory initiated by Martin Luther. When it comes to the destruction of end-days Babylon, Scripture makes no mention of any of the ancient Babylonian cities – Nineveh, Ur, Babel, Erech, Accad, Sumer, Assur, Calneh, Mari, Karana, Ellpi, Eridu, Kish, or Tikrit. Rather, all the literal references in Scripture are in Arabia. With the use ‘MOTHER OF HARLOTS,’ history records that the worship of Ishtar ‘Kilili,’ or ‘Queen of Harlots’” originated in Arabia, [Patricia Turner and Charles Russell Coulter, Dictionary of Ancient Deities, page 242, Ishtar, Oxford University Press US, 2001].
Mecca is an extremist, Islamic stronghold. Non-Muslims are forbidden in Mecca. It is not an economic stronghold. It is not committed to world commerce or trade by sea. Mecca is dedicated and committed to being an Islamic holy site, not a world capital or major trading center. Other faiths (other parts of the mystery religion) cannot be practiced in Islam’s backyard. Mecca is still subject to Saudi Arabia’s sovereign laws and religious laws. Mecca is home for the world’s Muslims, but not the home that will become the melting pot of acceptance for all world religions, false doctrines, idol worship and human deification. However, Islam is part of the mystery religion and will be tolerated by the beast/false profit and practiced in Mecca. The beast/false prophet will allow Islam to be practiced worldwide, but also along with all other forms of false world religions. The beast/false prophet will also allow traditional Judaism to be practiced by Jews in their rebuilt temple. He even allows Jews to practice animal sacrifices for sacrificial atonement of their sins. The Jews have placed their faith in the ‘man-of-sin’, the ‘perfection of deception’, the beast, the antichrist. True worship of Jesus Christ (Christianity) will NOT be practiced or tolerated. Christians who bear witness of the gospel of Jesus Christ will eventually be martyred by beheading, (proselytizing is prohibited in NEOM Babylon). Mystery Religion Babylon will only be accepted for the first 3 ½ years of the Tribulation.
Then we have the Red Sea: “The earth is moved at the noise of their fall, at the cry the noise thereof was heard in the Red Sea” (Jeremiah 49:21). The Red Sea is a geographic indicator as to where the last days Babylon will be located. Babylon NEOM is being pitched as the ‘great’ city on the Red Sea. Mecca does not meet this test.
Babylon City is not Rome (or Vatican City) or Mecca:
Rome, as a city in Italy, can’t be described in a way that equates with the new (future) Babylon as stated in Revelation. There are seven hills that the city is built on, but they are not mountains. Rome is not, nor will be a future economic powerhouse. Its infrastructure does not allow for the scale of existence that is described in Revelation. I have never been to Rome (let alone Italy). But from pictures, I believe Rome to be a beautiful city with glorious architecture and exquisite artisanship. However, its glory is past and reflects the past Roman Empire. The Bible states that the antichrist will gain the political allegiance and military power of a ten nation confederacy that comes out of or from the past Roman Empire in the European region.
Vatican City is home to the false, religious doctrine (as it is being promoted today) of Catholicism. It is another ‘ism’ that makes up the evil soup of Mystery Religion of Babylon. I believe that at one time, the Vatican may have sincerely attempted (I’m giving it the benefit of a doubt) to represent Christ (in an extremely challenged and distorted way). However, Satan has influenced this church into evolving into something that does not truly represent Christ and that which makes a mockery of Him.
The current head prophet or leader has done a terrific job of deifying AND crowning ‘Mary’ as the Queen of Heaven and worthy of worship. Looks like, sounds like and smells like idol worship and blasphemy. Ponder this thought, Semiramis (Nimrod’s wife) deified and crowned herself as Queen of Heaven under Paganism. Just replace Semiramis with ‘Mary’ and you get the same blasphemous effect. If the Vatican is pitching the worship and deification of ‘Mary’ over Christ, then the faithful are being deceived with a twisted, deceiving form of Paganistic Christianity. Which of the seven (7) churches in Asia-Minor does this sound like? Revelation chapters 2-3. The Vatican has ALWAYS worshipped power, influence and wealth. Some estimates have the Vatican owning more wealth than any of the biggest global companies on earth. Does the Vatican really need the widow’s mite from an old woman in some third world country? No. The politics of this priesthood has always been about power and influence over people of the world. Today’s leader spends more time conferring with world leaders, the United Nations, World Economic Forum, World Health Organization and other un-elected world elites and power brokers over political policy and political solutions than serving to the needs of the sexually abused caused at the hands of his evil priests.
Vatican City is NOT Babylon Future. Satan has already turned it into a blasphemous heap of sin. My criticism is aimed at those at the top of the Catholic system that would deceive people all over the world. Depending on how closely one follows a head priest’s theology and systemic laws, will determine how closely one is lead astray or not. In Vatican City (or Mecca for that matter), Satan doesn’t need to do anymore, he has already accomplished what he set out to do. Or, is there something more that Satan needs to come out of Vatican City, besides blasphemous doctrine and idol worship (false prophet)?
Vatican City is its own entity within a city, within a country. Likewise, Mecca is an Islamic religious center within a country, within a region. At its essence, Mecca serves basically the same purpose to Islamic peoples as does Vatican City to Catholic peoples. Both serve up man-made doctrine, man-made laws and man-made theology and are a blasphemously deceptive focal point. Self-righteousness and piety are served up daily (by both). False doctrine is on the menu. And it doesn’t come at a cheap price. The faithful are expected to pay (give) handsomely. Catholic people from around the world travel to Vatican City to behold its glory and magnificence, and to marvel at its head priest. They love to witness the ‘big throne.’ Why was it made and who is supposed to be sitting on it? Or is it nothing more than an extremely expensive piece of gaudy looking furniture that poor people around the world had to pay for? The same can be said for Mecca and its black rock. Satan already has his grasp over both cities and both religions. He has been successful. This is not something new. The traditions of both Catholicism and Islam run deep into hell, in both of these cities. Satan does not need this to change. He has already accomplished what he wanted to do in both of these religions and cities.
Radical Islam will NEVER allow anyone or anything to set foot in Mecca. Satan wants these countries to have their exclusive blasphemous theology unto themselves. Catholicism serves Satan’s same purpose in countries of the West. This will not change. It doesn’t need to change. Satan is delighted that everyone is chasing a mystery religion of their own which he has uniquely crafted for them. Satan is successfully splitting the world up into many mystery religions, all of which are intended to distract men from ever knowing the true gospel of Jesus Christ. Everyone is reading from a different book, but each book is written from the same author. Mecca, in no way shape or form, could ever be converted into a worldwide powerhouse or economic hub or have a technological presence that the world could marvel at. Yes, it is true that Mecca sits in a mountain range, is in the Middle East and near the Red Sea. It can be said the same for NEOM Babylon (Future). As with Rome and Vatican City, will people from all religious faiths around the world flock to and trample around in Mecca? To worship? To do commerce? To build a glorious, future, technological marvel? Would Mecca allow a citywide chain of western movie theaters as NEOM promises? Is there enough open land for a massive construction and enlargement of Mecca?
Would the world’s Radical Islamic leaders ever approve of such a thing as having the world trample under foot their ‘holiest’ of temples? Through their political ideology and war/terror mongering, once proud Islamic countries (Iran) have run themselves economically into the ground. They don’t control enough funds to feed their people, let alone invest in the pipedream of a young whipper-snapper of a Saudi Prince. Many of the more radical Islamic countries are at odds with the young prince of Saudi Arabia and his vision of a more moderate Islam. Iran is specifically at odds with Saudi Arabia. Surprise, surprise! One version of Islam doesn’t like the other version of Islam (Sunni vs Shiite). The wise prince knows radical Islam should not be the future course of his country. Satan doesn’t need to change anything in Mecca. Its evil perfection is perfectly evil as it is. He has achieved the same purpose with Mecca as he has with Vatican City. The two cities and religions mirror one another. Evil looking at itself in the mirror is still evil. Both are ugly and sickening and blasphemous.
Saudi Arabia’s prince distinctively knows what he is up against. He is a sharp, intelligent, worldly young (millennial) man. This is why he wants to pursue a more moderate version of Islam in an entirely new city that does not have the historical burdens and ugliness of radical Islam. Islam has a bad reputation worldwide, even though the media says otherwise and markets it as a religion of ‘peace’. It is not a religion of ‘peace, but the absolute, complete opposite. What billionaire investor would want to invest a couple $ billion into building where radical Islam and terrorists have a stronghold? Nowhere! Anywhere having extreme, radical Islamic laws will be a significant deterrent to any significant foreign investment. The prince wisely knows this. An entirely new, glorious city (with its own government, acceptance of other faiths, laws, etc.) within a country, within a region is a strategic way of bypassing the obstacle of radical Islam in the region.
The prince will still be in control of his country AND his country will benefit from the taxation of NEOM and it will be a step forward in the diversification of his country’s overall economy. This is a win, win, and win for everyone, so the thinking goes. All this progress from just creating a mega city in a small corner of the country that the old guard radical Islamic clerics can’t get their hands on. Brilliant. Economics dictate the prince’s hand. Oil prices and revenue for the kingdom is way down. Arabia’s economy (revenue) is almost 100% dependent on the price of oil. As goes oil, so goes the kingdom. Live by the sword, die by the sword. Live by oil, die by oil.
For the future, Saudi Arabia HAS to diversify its economy. This has been, and is, a challenge for many countries and cities around the world today. The effort of adapting to changing global economic pressures that require replacing old industries and technologies that die off. Consider the old steel towns around the U.S. that quickly grew during the days of the steel boom. When the steel boom died (or global economies of steel production changed), steel mills closed and the cities built around them suffered greatly and in some cases are still suffering. Every city struggles to replace that which they were dependent on, with something new. Saudi Arabia is no different than anywhere else in the world. They have to live by the same economic laws as everyone else.
NEOM Babylon is one of the prince’s strategies to counter his country’s reliance on oil. NEOM is a gamble that the prince has to make. He has no other choice. Properly packaged, endorsed and sold worldwide, NEOM will be a fantastic success in the future. It will be a modern marvel. It will be a “great city.” The Bible says so, numerous times in the book of Revelation. We are told that Satan (until the Day of the Lord) is the god of this world and influences the glory of nations, countries and cities. He also controls the wealth of the planet. Consider Satan’s temptation of Christ in the desert with the kingdoms of the world, Matthew 4:8-10.
Historically, Vatican City and Mecca have continuously been contemplated as the future Babylon of Revelation. Rightly so, both Vatican City and Mecca appear, on the surface, as likely candidates as future Babylon. However, just as there are many past world dictators (Caesar, Nero, Nimrod, Hitler, etc.) who have been thought of being the antichrist, Vatican City and Mecca are false positives.
What is a false positive? It is a testing term that suggests that something that looks like, sounds like, smells like something it is supposed to be . . . but it’s not. It’s a medical term used when discerning the outcome of a medical testing procedure. Without the proper discernment by the doctor or technician who is reading the test results, the test can be misinterpreted and the wrong outcome determined. This is not to say that the doctor or the technician is bad or read the test wrong on purpose. It just means that there was a problem interpreting the test results at the time. It could also mean that there wasn’t enough information available, at the time the test was done, to make a proper assessment. In extreme medical cases, usually as more information becomes available from different tests, eventually the false positives go away and give way to a correct or better assessment of the problem. I am only spending a little time in discussing this because many excellent giants in eschatology have come before me. Given what was known at the time, and in the past, I would agree with them. At best, you can only understand that which you know. That which lies outside of what is known, is speculation. I don’t believe anyone was/is speculating, but doing their best in discerning which was known at that particular point in time.
It is only very, very recently, since the end of 2017 (seven months ago as I write this), that Babylon NEOM has jumped on the world scene and is quickly gaining the attention of the billionaires and the technology wizards of the world. NEOM was introduced to the world EXACTLY one month after the Revelation 12:1 sign physically occurred over the earth on September 24, 2017. This is an astrological fact. These are the ‘Nimrodian’ architects, planners and investors of the future Tower of Babel. Through the worldwide common language of big, big, big money and deceiving technology, Satan thinks he has overcome the limitations of different languages that occurred in antiquity past. NEOM is not a mistake or false positive. NEOM Babylon Future meets too many of the eschatological litmus tests, not to be Revelation’s Babylon Future. Just as NEOM popped up yesterday, the Bible also indicates that the antichrist will pop up suddenly and not be revealed until the proper time (after the rapture of the true Church, Bride of Christ). Satan will not waste a second of time in drawing the world’s attention to his puppet of sin in the flesh, the ‘perfection of deception’, the beast, the antichrist. The beast/antichrist will pop onto the world scene quickly and unexpectedly, just as NEOM Babylon is doing.
The antichrist is the false positive of Christ. He looks like a savior, talks like savior, acts like a savior, says he is the savior . . . except he is not. Only Jesus Christ is the Savior, through the forgiveness of sins, the shedding of his blood and through his resurrection. No other man-made religion addresses sin or the need for salvation. This is why the Mystery Religion of Babylon (NEOM) will be so popular and accepted. No one will suggest that man is sinful, no one will suggest that man needs Christ, everyone will suggest that its ok to be like you are, keep doing what you are doing, worship who or whatever you want to worship, to ignore the fable of Christ, etc.
Do as though wilt or as thou please. That is why God sends his two supernatural witnesses into the world for the first 3 ½ years of the Tribulation. Any meaningful representation of Christ and the gospel is gone missing from the earth. The true Church, Bride of Christ is gone missing, nowhere to be found on earth. Men will be following their own devices and whims. An infamous Satanist once said, “Do as thou wilst.”
This attitude is at the very core of every false religion, doctrine, system of worship worldwide. It is at the core of Satan’s rebellion against God. Satan wants to be God. He wants to rise up above God. Satan gives this attitude to men, so they will rebel against God and never come to the understanding of their need for salvation through Jesus Christ. Men have always wanted to be their own masters, beholden to no one, able to form their own truth or relativism. Men want to be their own gods and govern over their own creations. Men want to delight in their own creations. God is not impressed by men’s creations. They are literally ‘scribbles in the sand’. Quickly washed away with the next tide. This is instinctive to men, this is their nature . . . this is sin. There is that word again, sin, no one wants to hear it or to even have it suggested that is applies to them (or me or you). Through big money, advanced technology and the mystery religion of the coalescing of the world’s religions, the promotion of sin will be at its zenith in NEOM Babylon Future. It is just starting, it has already been conceived and will grow to enormous proportions. How is that for an investment forecast for future returns? Men will grow rich by reason of her costliness (Rev. 18:19).

The billionaires and investment fund managers of the world are starting to trip over each other to get on the NEOM bandwagon to hell. God has the last laugh. The entire chapter eighteen (18) of Revelation describes the complete and total destruction of NEOM Babylon in just one hour. So much for the billions and billions ($500 billion estimated) of dollars of investment. All gone in a flash, in an hour. Poof! Bye-Bye! Up in smoke! Literally. “And they cried when they saw the smoke of her burning.” (Rev. 18:18). Any grown man (or woman), who has invested billions into any startup venture, will literally cry when they realize their investment has disappeared instantly. Yeah. . .but? During the great depression in the U.S. during the 1930s, men who lost fortunes during the stock market crash, literally jumped out of windows of their banks or investment houses, to their death, when they learned the value of their investments were zero, nada, zilch, nothing. Back in the 1930s, we were talking about millions. In NEOM, we are literally talking about billions. Poor, poor billionaires. So materialistically rich, yet spiritually bankrupt. (Rev. 3:17) . . . “Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor and blind, and naked:” The rich and super, mega rich invest their money in the kingdom and cities of Satan, instead of in the kingdom of heaven of God and Jesus Christ. This is physically, literally and spiritually true. Through the Holy Spirit, God’s word to John the Apostle, addresses this issue many times throughout the Bible’s book known as the Revelation of Jesus Christ.
Babylon future is not Rome, it is not Vatican City and it is not Mecca. It is also not New York, London, Paris, Moscow, Hong Kong, Berlin, Beijing, Delhi, Dubai or any of the other great cities of the world. These are all ‘wannabees’ or false positives. Something great (evil) can be said of all of them. After all, they are under Satan’s control. NEOM Babylon Future is also under Satan’s control. The promise of a new city, glorifying technology and evil, in the sands and mountains of Saudi Arabia! This sounds like of the promise and marketing pitch of the Tower of Babel, all over again. Anyone want to place their bets or make an investment in this venture? . . . I thought so. Anyone want to make their eternal bet in their eternal future with the eternal King of Kings or Lord of Lords in the eternal city of New Jerusalem? . . . I pray and hope so. The Bible says I can expect a better return on my investment in the kingdom of heaven (my acceptance of Christ’s forgiveness of my sins, through the shedding of his blood and resurrection) than what I could ever expect from my billion dollar investment in NEOM Babylon Future.
The ironic (and true) feature of Christ’s offer of salvation is that it is FREE! It doesn’t cost a widow’s mite, a dollar or even a billion (or two) dollar investment. Christ gives us the seed money, or investment principal FREELY! We just have to accept his offer, believe in him and trust in him. He wants to save us from our sin (do as thou wilst until you kill yourself). He doesn’t force us to take the investment, we can accept the investment freely of our own free will. He does not jam the decision down our throats. You have to make the decision of your own free choice. Take the free offer, while it is still valid and being offered. Decisions have a shelf life, eventually we run out of time to make a decision or the offer is rescinded. Our days and time on earth is short, and end quickly. If you delay or put off making your investment, or don’t make one at all, then you lose out on receiving the benefit of having made the investment. Plain and simple. This is true in both physical and spiritual life. The earlier you make your investment, the longer you gain from the benefit of compounding. Our investment (decision) in Christ is our investment in eternity. What type of a return can you expect? What amount or price can you put on that? God paid handsomely to save me, you and everyone else who accepts the offer of eternal salvation through his Son, Jesus Christ. God paid the ultimate price with the life of his Son, Jesus Christ. This is worth more than an infinite number of trillions of dollars. This is not offered in Materialism, Buddhism, Toaism, Gaism, Satanism, Hinduism, Sexualism, Idolism, Catholicism, Islam, Paganism, etc. It is Satan’s plan that all of these “ism’s” (coalesced into a mystery religion) will lead all men astray to both physical and spiritual eternal death. Satan hates us and hates God for having a plan to save us through Jesus Christ. Christ’s plan is to save us. Satan’s plan is to destroy or devour us.
Why would you turn down being saved? A drowning man grabs the hand/arm that reaches under the water to pull him up. A sick person seeks the skills of a physician to help heal their physical body. Christ desperately wants to heal us from the physical and spiritual results of sin. You don’t think sin has an effect on a person’s physical body. Think again. Talk to an addict or someone who feels compelled to do something over and over again, even though they know they shouldn’t or know whatever it is they are doing is wrong, or harmful. This is one very simple form of the effects of sin. Sin manifests itself differently in everyone, but the result is the same. Physical and spiritual death. Try to explain this to anyone alive in Babylon NEOM Future.
They are living the good life, enjoying the manifestations and results of their technological investments. They have a million dollar condo on the Red Sea, or Gulf of Aqaba and are living life ‘deliciously’ (Rev. 18:7) . . . “For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities. Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double. How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit like a queen, and am now widow, and shall see no sorrow.” (Emphasis added). This verse pretty much sums up the attitude of men’s minds and hearts in Babylon NEOM Future. They think to themselves, ‘Man, I got it made! It’s a great life, I can afford anything, I can do whatever I want and I don’t have to account to anyone, nothing can stop me now!’ Notice that both evil and righteousness pay dividends, depending on how men invest of themselves. Poor, poor billionaires. Poor, poor technocrats. Poor, poor hypocritical religious leaders. The Christian Tribulation Saints (those martyred, beheaded for witnessing of Christ) lose their temporary physical life, but gain an eternity with Christ in heaven, which pays dividends forever. Do not mock this, do not make fun of this and do not belittle this. These souls are so convinced of the gospel and the forgiveness of their sins through Jesus Christ, that they will not deny Christ and instead choose beheading over rescinding their faith in Christ. They withstand Satan’s strongest attempts to dissuade them of Christ and they are victorious. Are any of us thus convinced to be of this fortitude if it were us? How precious are these people to Christ! The Bible’s book of Revelation is crystal clear when it indicates no one else, from any other religious group, is martyred or beheaded. Why would this be? Why are Christians the only people getting beheaded? Why is Satan so threatened by us? What is he so deceived into thinking he is accomplishing by doing this? He can’t pick on Christ, so he picks on us. He picks on the big brother’s . . . little brother. If this sounds like a sermon, it is, but in the context of the evil that exists during the Tribulation and in Babylon NEOM future specifically.
NEOM is Babylon Future and is a phoenix rising in the desert sands and mountains in the land of Shur (Saudi Arabia) to become a great, great city that sits like a queen in her glory and believes it will never see sorrow.

The parallels between old Babylon and new Babylon (NEOM) are staggering. It is difficult to suggest that the new is not mirroring the old. Just as Nimrod wanted to glorify himself with the accomplishment of his city and his tower of antiquity, mankind today wants to repeat this attempt at glorifying itself in yet another spectacular, technological marvel or great city built from the ground up in the desert. Nowhere in the vison of NEOM Babylon, is Christ even remotely hinted at. It is not a city that will be built on Christian morals, principles or faith. It will be a city built on everything else at its foundation, other than with Christ. It will not be “one nation or city under God” (as was the custom to say at one time in the United States Pledge of Allegiance). I was at two high school commencement ceremonies recently and the Pledge of Allegiance was ominously omitted at the start of each commencement. At its peak, the people of NEOM Babylon will be glad to rid themselves of Christians, Christian influence, principles and worship. The Bible is crystal clear when it says that these people living in Babylon NEOM Future are completely vexed and ‘tormented’ by Christian testimony from God’s two supernatural prophets during the first 3 ½ years of the Tribulation. (Rev. 11:1-12).
. . .”And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them. And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city which is spiritually called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified. And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and a half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves. And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts to one another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwell on the earth.” (Rev. 11:7-10).
The word of God, in the above verses, does not sound like a resounding endorsement and acceptance of Jesus Christ (or Christianity) by the world or the people of Babylon Future (NEOM). These people want absolutely nothing to do with Christ, God, the gospel or Christian witnessing. They are offended, vexed or tormented by Christian influence and witnessing. The concept of the gospel of Jesus Christ gets under their skin and is annoying to them. It irritates them and makes them angry and uncomfortable. It challenges what they hold dear to their hearts and for many, it challenges what they grew up with. False religions are engrained in many cultures. The two prophets are eventually killed (after 3 ½ years) by the beast, for their witnessing of Jesus Christ and the gospel of salvation.
People at this time will be ‘torqued up’ and hateful for having to listen to these two Christian prophets from God for 3 ½ years! They also so despise Christ and the gospel, and the two prophets, that they refuse “suffer not” (make no effort) to bury them after the beast is allowed to kill them. To not bury someone, is the ultimate insult to them. The bible indicates that these two men’s bodies are allowed to lay and rot in the street for 3 ½ days. Why? Not only for insult, but for gloating. The whole world sees these two “powerful witnesses” of God, dead and rotting at the beast’s doing. They gloat and make merry at seeing those two dead who vexed them sorely. The evil people of Babylon NEOM Future, and the world, will buy each other gifts in celebration of the death of the Christian witnesses and their 3 ½ year testimony of Christ and the gospel. Does this sound like the acceptance of the Christian faith in NEOM Babylon, at some point future as promised by today’s marketing pitch? Of course it doesn’t. NEOM Babylon is presently being pitched and marketed today as a welcoming city for ALL faiths. This will not be the case once the Tribulation period starts. As the future unfolds and Christian witnessing comes under greater and greater persecution, it is easy to see and understand how increasing hate towards the gospel will come to pass, not only worldwide, but in Babylon NEOM Future. Underline this in your book.
Does this sound like the Middle East region today, as a whole? Of course it does. In addition to hating the Jews and vowing to erase them from the earth, radical Islamic countries throughout the entire region (including Africa) are persecuting and killing Christian minorities like never before. The worldwide media does NOT report any organized or intended mass killings or persecutions of Buddhists, Shintoists, Gai’ists, Atheists, Satanists, Hindus, Paganists, et al. When terrorist groups have nothing better to do or are tired of making kite bombs, they target Christians and the Jews. Is this a coincidence? Why does Satan so violently hate Christians and Jews? You should know the answer to this question.
NEOM Babylon is all about mankind’s self-government, technological marvels, luxurious living in a new desert Eden. Virtually unlimited investment funds are available. All faiths and religions (idol worship, false doctrines) will be accepted until the mid-point of the Tribulation. People of the Christian faith will ultimately be persecuted (martyred/beheaded) for their witness and acceptance of Christ. So many verses in Revelation attest to the martyrdom of Christians during the Tribulation, who are known as the Tribulation Saints. Once the beast/antichrist and false prophet come on the world scene and start their deception, the policy in NEOM Babylon will be to persecute the Christian minority. The beast/antichrist will positively, absolutely NOT allow or tolerate worship of Jesus Christ in the capital of his kingdom. All other false religions and blasphemous doctrines will not only be allowed in NEOM Babylon, but encouraged (for the first 3 ½ years). All other religious doctrines will be gladly accepted in this city, since they are all part and parcel of the beast’s Mystery Religion Babylon that blaspheme God and Jesus Christ. Given the current marketing pitch from NEOM Babylon, all these various false religious doctrines of men will be accepted under the banner of ‘peaceful coexistence’ because they all coalesce together in the form of a mysterious evil soup of denying Christ, God and the gospel. There is no other way of saying this. True Christians will inherently understand this accordingly.
. . . “So Moses brought Israel from the Red sea, and they went out into the wilderness of Shur; and they went three days in the wilderness, and found no water.” (Exodus 15:22).
The wilderness of Shur is where construction of NEOM Babylon will commence. It is a flat, dry, sunny and waterless plain that can be easily built upon. It is a scenic area that sits between the Midian Mountains and the Red Sea. This land was promised to the Israelites in antiquity, by God. It will be trampled by the Gentiles and have their Babylon NEOM temple built upon it.
Paul Rolland | Night Watchman Ministries | Who is the First Rider or White Horseman of the Apocalypse?
Revelation 6:2 And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.
Commentary; the rider is the ‘beast’ or ‘antichrist’. His being clothed in white suggests ‘3’ false righteousness, false peace and false authority. He has a bow, but no arrows. He rules with lies and threats, but no military or arms. He conquers and subjugates, not with force but with ‘5’ lies, deception, false covenants and false agreements and false promises. He is the world’s greatest ‘political’ leader and deceiver. He is the one who ‘confirms the false covenant of seven years with Jacob’ which starts the tribulation. You should know now of who I speak. His ‘crown’ represents authority, rulership and position. It even literally represents his ‘position’ as Crown Prince, once the tribulation begins. My discernment is that the ‘white horse upon which he sits’ is symbolically a white Arabian stallion.

25 And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand.” (Daniel 8:23-25)

Daniel 9:26-27 And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people [Palestinians, Arabs/Muslims] of the prince [Beast, Antichrist] that shall come shall destroy the city [Jerusalem] and the sanctuary [Third Temple]; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.

Paul Rolland | Night Watchman Ministries | MbS and His Abomination of Desolation
The Confirmer / Prince / Beast (now) who becomes the Antichrist (future), midway through the coming seven (7) year tribulation, in the Jews rebuilt Third (3) Temple. Six (6) verses:
Daniel 9:26-27 And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined. And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.
Matthew 24:15: “Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place(whoever reads, let him understand) then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains.”
Daniel 11:36 Then the king shall do according to his own will: he shall exalt and magnify himself above every god, shall speak blasphemies against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the wrath has been accomplished; for what has been determined shall be done.
2 Thessalonians 2:3 “Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.”
Daniel 11:31 And arms shall stand on his part, and they shall pollute the sanctuary of strength, and shall take away the daily sacrifice, and they shall place the abomination that maketh desolate.
Daniel 12:11 And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days.
NWN; Count 1,290 days to the Second Coming of Christ, from when the ‘Abomination of Desolation’ occurs. ALL timelines lead to the Second Physical coming of Christ to earth on the last day of the entire 7 year tribulation.
Paul Rolland | Night Watchman | Night Watchman Ministries | MbS and the ‘Bottomless Pit’ of Evil – House of Saudi Seven
Revelation 17:8-11 The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is. And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth. And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space. And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.
‘Seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.’ = NEOM Babylon sits on the seven (7) tallest mountains in the Midian Mountain range in the Tabuk region of Saudi Arabia. Tallest mountain is Mount Sinai. These mountains are scarlet and purple colored due to volcanic origin and related minerals deposited in rock. NEOM is a $500 (5) billion technological/hedonistic paradise. No mention or acceptance of Christ.
The seven and eight kings are in reference to the genetic lineage (bottomless pit of evil) of the House of Saud. These are ALL the modern kings since the foundation of modern Saudi Arabia.
Proof of the ‘line of’ of the 8 kings.
Kings of Saudi Arabia (1932–present)
1. King Ibn Saud. 9/22/1932 – 11/9/1953. Kingdom founded by conquest. Had six (6) sons that became Kings of the Kingdom. Six (6) is the number of evil man/men. The ground work for this kingdom was being created at the same time as the ground work for the State of Israel. Satan started establishing his ‘chosen people’ (those who worship the dragon and beast) at the same time God was re-establishing his ‘chosen people’ (the Jews) over the 1930’s to late 1940’s. 1 of the 5 ‘fallen/dead’ kings.
2. King Saud. 11/9/1953 – 11/2/1964. 2 of the 5 ‘fallen/dead’ kings.
3. King Faisal. 11/2/1964 – 3/25/1975. 3 of the 5 ‘fallen/dead’ kings.
4. King Khalid. 3/25/1975 – 6/13/1982. 4 of the 5 ‘fallen/dead’ kings.
5. King Fahd. 6/13/1982 – 8/1/2005. 5 of the 5 ‘fallen/dead’ kings.
6. King Abdullah. 8/1/2005 – 1/23/2015. The king ‘that is.’ This is the 6th king revealed by the Holy Spirit to John the Apostle. He is the signpost for the ‘season of the times’ of the latter days, prior to the tribulation. A sign for the evil Gentile nations.
7. King Salman. (King 2015 – ?). 1/23/2015- (2022) This is the 7th and ‘future’ king revealed to John the Apostle who will reign for a ‘short time or while’. If his reign lasts for 7 years, from 2015 on into 2022, it will truly reflect a short reign and denotes God’s divine completion to his plan or purpose for the seven kings, including the seventh king. King Salman is the LAST of the six (6) sons of Ibn Saud to be King of Saudi Arabia.
8. Crown Prince and Prime Minister Mohammed Bin Salman. He is the 8th and final ‘future’ king revealed to John the Apostle. He is the ‘beast’, comes from seven (7) kings/lineage before him and goes to perdition. His reign is over the seven (7) years of the tribulation. Born 1985, he will be 35 (7×5) years old in 2020. Seven (7) denotes God’s divine completion to His plan or purpose. Five (5) denotes Satanic influence of men and kings. God’s influence over men in greater than Satan’s influence over men 7>5. Notice that MBS will be the FIRST king who is NOT a direct son of founding King Ibn Saud in 1932. Becoming the 8th king, MBS represents a ‘new epoch’ a ‘new future’ for the kingdom that forms an ideological break from the past. Eight (8) denotes a new beginning, new timeline, new season, new plan. God is addressing the evil status quo of the House of Saud (bottomless pit of evil, wealth, influence, power, corruption) and ushering in the time of great wrath, the tribulation for Gentile nations. From a spiritual perspective, MBS not being one of the six (6) sons of the founding King Ibn Saud, now holds claim to being the son of perdition under the power and influence of the dragon (Satan). MBS has no allegiance to his family tree, tradition, other family princes and historical political protocol. Only an extremely evil, pathological soul manipulated by Satan would turn on his own family. In Satan’s plan, he used the ‘bottomless pit’ of evil House of Saud to raise MBS, the beast, the son of perdition to be in the positions he both currently and in future, will hold. Just as Jesus Christ had an earthly family tree and lineage, Satan used the House of Saud as the earthly family tree, lineage for his son of perdition, the beast, the coming Antichrist.
At the time John the Apostle was in the Holy Spirit and given a ‘vision’ of the future, 5 of the Saudi Kings were already dead (fallen). He was shown the sixth king, and told that a future 7th and 8th king were coming. The sixth king was a ‘sign post’ of the beginning of the ‘end times’ prior to the tribulation. The 7th King ‘short while’ in current King Salman, the last son of founder Saud. Mbs, Mohammed bin Salman is ‘Crown Prince’ and will become the 8th king (goes into perdition). MbS is the ‘Beast’ who rules during the seven (7) year tribulation and great tribulation (last 3.5 year period.) MbS (Beast now), becomes the Antichrist midway during the 7 year tribulation, at the occurrence known as the ‘Abomination of Desolation.’
King Salman brought his son, MBS into the kingdom’s political arena in 2015. 2015-2020 is also a 5 year period of Satanic influence on MBS, as he has grown in power and worldwide influence and stature among not only Western countries, but among ‘Kings of the East’, and those who worship the dragon and the beast throughout Middle East / North African countries (MENA – the ‘many’ Arabic and Islamic countries).
Mohammed bin Salman (named Crown Prince, June 2017). He is referred to scripturally as both a Prince and as a King. This is extremely unique and mentioned for a very real reason. He plays a prophetic role as Prince (when he confirms the false peace covenant among many nations throughout MENA regarding Israel and the Palestinians). Please consider that many, if not all, MENA countries are either Arabic and/or Muslim and are financially and politically beholden to Saudi Arabia in one form or another. Religiously, all these countries are beholden to the House of Saud, because it is the ‘custodian’ of Islam’s ‘holiest’ sites in Saudi Arabia. All Muslims must come for Hajj in Saudi Arabia at some point in their life, if capable (those who worship the dragon and the beast). Satanic influence is woven together and throughout ALL of these counties. They will agree to MBS’ confirmation of the covenant, as Crown Prince. They dare not come against the Crown Prince’s wish and confirmation. Thus, they will abide by his confirmation. They have every reason to accept his confirmation, because of their political, financial and religious vested interests with Saudi Arabia. ‘Who can make war or come against the Beast?’
MBS also plays a prophetic role as Saudi Arabia’s 8th King. This will likely occur before he enters the rebuilt Jewish 3rd Temple and causes the Abomination of Desolation (claims to be god and demands to be worshiped as such). Poor man wants to be rich, rich man wants to be prince, prince wants to be king, king wants to be god and rule everything. As such, MBS will likely be the Saudi’s 8th King once he sets foot in the rebuilt Jewish temple half way through the tribulation. After all, he is already the focus of ‘those who worship the dragon and the beast.’ He now wants the Jews to worship him along with the rest of the world (via the destruction of his previous accommodation and approval of the worshipping of the false mystery religions.) It’s not enough that Satan has deceived almost 2 billion Muslims. He now wants to be worshipped by the rest of the earth by Hindus, Buddhists, et.al. Satan destroys the false ‘mystery religion’ being propagated by the False Prophet, so he can be the only focus of mankind’s worship. These false religions served their satanic purpose by deceiving men and leading men away from Christ, now is time to throw these other false religions into the fire so men are forced to worship Satan, through MBS exclusively.
Hence, MBS’ role will have changed from beast/prince to king to Antichrist at this point. He is indwelt by Satan in order for Satan to satisfy his claim that he will rise to be like the true God and to be worshipped as such. As a spiritual entity, Satan can only possess and indwell a flesh and blood human man. Satan has done everything in his power to raise MBS up through the evil bottomless pit of the House of Saud, to become a Crown Prince, to become a King, and now that Satan has possessed him to become the world-wide Antichrist. At this point, MBS is completely under Satan’s authority and power and ensues to blaspheme God and Jesus Christ.
The timing of when MBS became Crown Prince is known (June 2017). When he becomes king is when his father succumbs the throne to MBS (this could be through death or a short political reign for one reason or another – health?). The actual timing is unimportant, all we are told is that the 7th king’s reign is for a ‘short time or while.’ His term could be 5, 6, 7 or 8 years.
Where else is there a family/political dynasty on earth that has had seven (7) consecutive kings that rule a country from the same genetic line? In the Middle East? During the time of Israel’s rebirth from a valley of dry bones to a budding fig tree? Saudi Arabia’s current 7th king and future 8th king fit the Biblical narratives set forth by the Word of God. 7th and 8th kings from the bottomless pit of evil, money, power, influence, corruption (5 Satanic influences). MBS is prince when he confirms the covenant. MBS becomes an Antichrist when he is worshiped as a mujaddid by Muslims, and then becomes the worldwide Antichrist when he is indwelt by Satan.
The timing of John the Apostle’s vision regarding the 8 Kings from the bottomless pit of the House of Saud – 5 ‘fallen’, 1 ‘is current’, 2 ‘are future’.
Why is this even a topic worth mentioning? What is the point? Is there a point? Yes, there is a point. And it is VERY important, from a prophetic viewpoint. In that, it is a ‘viewing point’ of the latter days, leading up to the tribulation. How so?
First, as Christians, we know that the Triune God gave John the Apostle a vision and knowledge of many things pertaining to the days leading up to and into the tribulation and after. The Holy Spirit carried him into the future, from his particular life in time, to witness things that he then explained in his Revelation of Jesus Christ. One of the visions he was given, while in the Holy Spirit, was of the 5 kings that were fallen, a 6th king he was being shown, and that of a 7th king who had not come (but would rule for a short while at some point in the future). Lastly, he was shown a future and last 8th king known and described as the Beast who would be sent to perdition, udder destruction, the lake of fire and brimstone, the second death … alive.
I have attempted to confirm who the 7th and 8th kings are from our point in space and time, relative to the ‘season of the times.’ What about this mysterious sixth king, the king ‘who is’. Why is this king important that John the Apostle was directly being shown? And what possible prophetic importance can he have? Of the 8 kings, why would God single out this particular man?
Consider that God, through the Holy Spirit, could have shown John any or all of the Kings in future ‘real time’. He was not permitted to see the 7th or 8th kings, but only the sixth. What perhaps was God’s reason for this?
The reign of 6th King Abdullah was from 2005 to 2015. This snapshot of time and space is important because it suggests that this time frame is important for us, for Gentiles alive in the final generation. To know that we are indeed in the ‘final season’ prior to our harpazo/rapture and the onset of the tribulation, without any doubt or hesitation. We know that Israel’s prophetic time clock began in 1948. God’s prophetic time clock for the tribulation of Gentile nations suggests that it started during the time of this sixth king. It is beyond the scope of this letter to go into details about what has occurred throughout the entire earth during the time of the sixth king’s reign. Many prophetic things started being revealed over the 5 year period from 2010 to 2015. The time of the sixth king’s reign is a sign post, a flashing light, a notice of when the final season begins and is upon the earth for Gentiles. God has given signs in scripture and the heavens for Jews, and Gentiles alike. The September 23, 2017 occurrence of the ‘great sign in heaven’ is an example of a sign for the Bride of Christ. The 6th Saudi king is a Gentile and a member of the House of Saud and the bottomless pit of evil. His reign (along with all the other past 5 kings and 2 future kings) has been orchestrated by Satan during the growth of this kingdom and the discovery of its bottomless wealth (oil). To a logical mind, clear and sober, this would indicate that God is saying that the age of grace for all Gentiles on earth is coming to a close. It is not important that we don’t know if God considers 2005 or 2015 to be the beginning of the ‘season of the time before the tribulation.’ Just as God spoke generically about the rebirth of Israel, as when you ‘see the fig tree bearing fruit’, he was referring to a time frame or process developing over time. In His divine plan, things develop and take time to grow until their divine timing is ripe to be revealed. Those who can discern can watch this occur, as it happens in ‘real time’ and understand appropriately and accordingly. As God gave a general timeline for Israel, commencing in 1948, he gives a Gentile timeline commencing in 2015. This of course is BEFORE the arrival of the future 7th and 8th kings who would indicate perhaps the middle and end of the ‘Fall Season’ or Season of the Times’ prior to the rapture/harpazo for the Bride and the onset of the tribulation.’
The 7 year period from 2015 to 2022 does indeed represent a 7 year period denoting God’s divine completion to his plan or purpose for the modern kingship lineage (line of) of Saudi Arabia. Time for the ‘Age of Grace’ has almost ended. As I write this letter, there is exactly only three (3) months remaining in 2019 before the world enters 2020 and a ‘new’ decade. Time is running out before the time begins of God’s great wrath on mankind and Gentile nations. We can know this with certainty by looking at the time frame witnessed by John the Apostle of the 6th king from the House of Saud. Six (6) denotes evil man/men. Seven (7) denotes God’s divine completion to his plan or purpose. Eight (8) denotes new era, new epoch, new season, new time span, new series of events. The 7th Saud King indicates that God is finished with Satan’s status quo in Saudi Arabia and of the evil Gentile world. The 8th Saud King indicates that God is ushering in a new time of tribulation and trial for mankind, Jews and Gentiles. Remember, the seven (7) year tribulation is also referred to as the ‘time or week of Jacob’s trouble.’ A week being seven (7) years and Jacob being a reference to Jews and Israel. God is turning his attention back onto Israel, the redemption of the Jews, wrath towards the Gentile world and arranging the coming Millennial Reign of Christ on Earth.
But how can they call on him (Jesus Christ) to save them unless they believe in him (Jesus Christ)? And how can they believe in him (Jesus Christ) if they have never heard about him (Jesus Christ)? And how can they hear about him (Jesus Christ) unless someone tells them?” —Romans 10:14
