Questions about specific scriptures

ID #1037

There are several scriptures (Rev. 18) saying Babylon will 'fall' and be destroyed, causing shock around the world. Does this mean the actual city of Babylon must be rebuilt before the Last Days? Or can it refer to the replaced Babylon of Dubai? It isn't just figurative, is it?

This is a difficult question.  There are those who believe that this refers to the literal city of Babylon, some think it could refer to Jerusalem.  It could very likely refer to something that we know nothing of yet - a future place of prominence that has yet to be.  It is described in such detail that I do believe that it is a literal place.  At this point in time, the scripture is just not clear and no one can be dogmatic about it.
