I'm impressed with the Dubai pictures, but I'm still not certain Babylon will be where old babylon sat. I'm still dong my own research.

Ancient Babylon does. I'm not sure the Babylon in Revelation is the same.

Don't be discouraged because although it's the position of the board that mystery babylon & literal babylon are the same, there are many other good theories out there. Dave Hunt believes that Mystery Babylon is symbolic of the Roman Catholic Church & I think he puts up a very convincing, bible based arguement for that position! :) Check out the book "A Woman Rides the Beast" by Dave Hunt.

Remember too that in the Old Testament, the coming Messiah was described as "out of Egypt", "a Nazerene", born in Bethelhem. I can just imagine the scholars debating their theories about the orgin of the Messiah lol....and also what the Messiah would do when He arrived. Once the prophecies were fulfilled in Jesus Christ, those Old Testament prophecies became clear to those willing to see.

I strongly suspect the last days prophecies will be just like that...there are so many aspects which are unclear right now. The one certain thing is that the last days prophecies will occur...the exact who, where, what, when questions remain a mystery but at least we know the "why" answer :)

( I do not believe that mystery babylon is modern day Iraq. Ancient babylon consisted of modern day Iraq, and Iran. Ezekeil 38 clearly state that Persia will march with Russia in the Gog Magog invasion. I believe that it is a religious, and political system that will be located in Rome!

It appears it will remain a mystery, lest in the discussion process we find ourselves in violation of parameters set forth, regardless we know it will not remain a mystery for long, the coming AntiChrist will see to that!
