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?
Is Mega-Babylon the Roman Catholic Church?
A world super-church?
Rebuilt ancient Babylon?
Brussels, Jerusalem, or 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 fulfilled?
Do they refer to other major nations – USA, Russia, China, Europe?
What about militant Islam?
I have been involved in many things in my life, designing and manufacturing furniture, electrical sales, running a construction business, marketing French perfume, college lecturing in computing, radio presenting and production, TV documentaries …
I’ve been a professional writer for over twenty years – firstly writing a regular series and other articles, reviews and reports for UK technical magazines. From 1990-96 I edited and published the Irish magazine, ‘Bread,’ releasing a book from this in 1995. Since then I’ve been involved in media of all kinds – from web design, to podcasting, satellite and internet radio, and documentary TV production.
‘The Whore and her Mother’ originally developed out of one episode in a radio series, which will shortly be broadcasting on satellite around most of the world. I felt the subject too interesting and dramatic to be confined to the fairly narrow, evangelical Christian world. These words of the Hebrew prophets are regarded as ‘holy’ by the world’s three main religions, and it is only fair to present them – and my conclusions from them, so far – to as wide an audience as possible.
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. I am convinced that there is enough evidence today to back up the predictions of these men, and that we are justified in taking very seriously all of their writings – and acting upon them, accordingly. Judge that for yourselves.
