I've heard that interpretation of it, but I've also heard another interpretation that seems to make a little more sense: that the "roll" is a cylinder-shaped (modern) weapon (in part, due to the description of its measurements [taken literally]).

And also something to do with the Hebrew word, there, for "woman." :scratch - 'ishshah (Strong's H802) versus 'ishshah (Strong's H801):

I think there was a thread about it on here, somewhere... :idunno

I heard that interpretation before.It is too farfetched for me to comprehend.Good imagination for the author but his theory is losing touch with God's word and what His word intends to be.

Which religious establishment has constantly changed God's word,and twisted His words to her gain?

And according to Daniel 9,she shall come from Rome.

And according to Daniel 9,she shall come from Rome.
And has the blood of saints and martyrs on her hands.

And then there's 1st Peter 5:13

I agree that a nuclear weapon makes the most literal sense.

After Years of War and Abuse, New Hope for Ancient Babylon
By JOHN NOBLE WILFORD
Published: March 22, 2010


The most immediate threat to preserving the ruins of Babylon, the site of one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, is water soaking the ground and undermining what is left in present-day Iraq of a great city from the time of King Nebuchadnezzar II.

Decided to do a little research on the red heifer, Babylon, Temple Mount, etc. just to see what's going on with 'em. This was interesting to me.

In terms of prophecy timeline, does Babylon have to be rebuilt in order for the Antichrist to come to power? Is that where he will reside? I am wondering how this all fits together.

The AntiChrist will set up his political and economic capital of the world in Babylon.

Highly recommend The Footsteps of the Messiah, A Study of the Sequence of Prophetic Events by Dr. Arnold Frunchtenbaum.

A city can be built in a few months, with enough money and manpower. Joel Rosenberg states just this in his book "Epicenter". Considering this will be the center of world wealth, and rich ptb, it is far from inconceivable that this city will be able to be constructed in little time.

I have not read through all the posts yet, but here is an article regarding Babylon and its rebuilding by Joel Rosenberg.
