Two Guys and A Bible Who Is This Babylon Revelation 15

In continuation of our study of Revelation titled “Who Is This Babylon”?, we focus on the Exodus motif from chapter 15. The Exodus is being reenacted through the church though yet on a spiritual level.

Revelation 11:8 – Sodom & Egypt

Egypt conjures up ideas of bondage and immorality. These writings were notable in Paul’s reference to Egypt, particularly in Galatians. Paul refers to Hagar, the Egyptian, a reference directly related to Egypt and bondage. Modern readers fail to recognize the impact of how the Hebraic reader would read and interpret the book. In the O.T. the only way the name Sodom is applied spiritually to a city is to Jerusalem. The evidence from Isaiah  chapter 1, Ezekiel 16 and Deuteronomy 32 is compelling.

Revelation is about Israel’s Last Days

Israel’s temple, priesthood, alters and city, i.e. everything counted dear, central to her and identified by her, were 100 percent destroyed. This is proof positive that Israel was in her last days. Deut. 32 tells us twice that its message is about Israel’s last days. Moses emphatically states that the vine of Israel was called Sodom.

The City Where The Lord Was Crucified

This means the book of Revelation is about Israel’s old covenant days and consummation. As in Galatians Paul establishes in clear language that the Old Covenant was symbolized by Hagar and on the verge of being cast out. Why would the Holy Spirit use the terms Sodom and Egypt to describe Rome? Yes, Rome was very immoral but it was not the Harlot nor ever in relation to the Lord as wife.

Whatever influenced the designation of Rome as Babylon was influenced by the Rabbis, but only after the destruction of Jerusalem. It was a Rabbinic book and sort of reactionary stance of the Rabbis.

  1. naturally like your web-site however you need to take a look at the spelling on quite a few of your posts. Several of them are rife with spelling problems and I find it very bothersome to tell the reality on the other hand I’ll definitely come again again.|

    • Thanks for the heads up. Some of these posts were my best efforts at “dictations” on a live broadcast while multi-tasking with a sound board, chat-room and keeping up with the conversation, but that is no excuse for not going back to edit. I’ve cleaned up several of them and will refer them to an editor to correct for additional grammar and typos. We appreciate your reading the blog and will be conscious of proof-reading in the future.
