Could the writings of the ancient Hebrew prophets be relevant to events taking place in the world today?
These Hebrew prophets – Isaiah, Jeremiah, Habbakuk and the apostle John, in The Revelation – wrote extensively about a latter day city and empire which would dominate, exploit and corrupt all the nations of the world. They referred to it as Babylon the Great – or Mega-Babylon – and they foretold that its fall – 'in one day' – would devastate the economies of the whole world.
Have these prophecies been fulfilled already?
- The Roman Catholic Church?
- A world super-church?
- Rebuilt ancient Babylon?
- somewhere entirely different?
Should this city/nation have a large Jewish population?
Why all the talk about merchants, cargoes, commodities, trade?
Can we rely on the words of these ancient prophets?
If so, what else did they foretell that is still to be revealed?
Do they refer to other major nations – USA, Russia, China, Europe?
What about militant Islam?

My background is in lecturing, publishing and radio/TV – but previously I ran a construction business. I still love to know how things are put together – buildings, origins of words, phrases – so I have used a similar approach in exploring, what I believe to be, an extremely important and relevant topic.
