Bible prophecy is quite clear that there will be an actual Babylon on the plains of Shinar (Iraq) in the end times. This city will become the headquarters for the end time world system led by the Beast Antichrist and his Kingdom that will rule the world. Scholars question how this poor insignificant place can someday become the Babylon that is expressed in the book of Revelation. The likely answer is oil, the Antichrist and Satan.

The city of Babylon still exists at the same location as the ancient city of Babylon and it is located in south Iraq. Saddam Hussein had been quietly rebuilding the ancient ruins of Babylon for decades. Saddam had even had his name engraved on the stones of some of the buildings along with Nebuchadnezzar. The gulf wars did disrupt the rebuilding of Babylon. There was damage done to the ancient ruins in the gulf war so the United States and other nations recently pledged to develop Babylon into a international world center and possibly a theme park based on her ancient wonders.
The only thing that is holding up the rebuilding of Babylon Iraq from emerging into a world class tourist center for the rich and famous is stability in Iraq and development of their oil. Some now think that Iraq has larger oil reserves than Saudi Arabia

Zechariah 5:7-11King James Version (KJV)

7 And, behold, there was lifted up a talent of lead: and this is a woman that sitteth in the midst of the ephah.

8 And he said, This is wickedness. And he cast it into the midst of the ephah; and he cast the weight of lead upon the mouth thereof.

9 Then lifted I up mine eyes, and looked, and, behold, there came out two women, and the wind was in their wings; for they had wings like the wings of a stork: and they lifted up the ephah between the earth and the heaven.

10 Then said I to the angel that talked with me, Whither do these bear the ephah?

11 And he said unto me, To build it an house in the land of Shinar: and it shall be established, and set there upon her own base.

Wow, I would seriously disagree with the term "Scholars" as has been used in this context. More like deranged psychopaths.

My construction company has actually just been awarded the contract to build Babylon. We are due to commence early excavations in 2019.
I would be happy if you have any Lego blocks that you can spare.
Apparently we will need a lot of them

For many years the literal interpreters of Bible prophecy have taught that Israel must return to the land before the tribulation, based up their understanding of the prophetic timetable. That has come to pass with the founding of the present state of Israel in 1948. There are back in their land and poised to fulfill their destiny when the tribulation begins. Those in the past, before 1948, did not believe this based upon what the newspapers said. Instead, they believed it because the Bible said so. It just so happened that God is bringing this to pass before a watching world as the newspapers chronicle current events. If this belief had been a function of " newspaper exegesis" then we would not have begun proclaiming our view of a reconstituted Israel until that time. Instead, Bible students were proclaiming it as a future event for hundreds of years before it occurred.

In the same way, prophecy students have also taught for many years that there will be a Revived Roman Empire and the need for a rebuilding of the city of Babylon since these entities will play a specific role during the future time of great tribulation. Before Saddam Hussein rose to power, Charles Dyer completed his Th.M. thesis at Dallas Theological Seminary in May 1979, in which he argued for a future rebuilding of Babylon. Well before his time there was developing a loud chorus of Bible students who also contended that the Bible predicts a future rebuilding of the city of Babylon on the Euphrates River.

Wow, bible students actually predicted a city would be built alongside a river? Now, that's brain power of biblical proportions. No one could have ever predicted that without divine intervention.

I see you don't want to talk about the state of Israel, you mouth off about Babylon but very quit about the nation that was born in ONE DAY! And the bible said it would happen in one day thousands of years ago and it was done. Enjoy

So you mean it took several billion years because that's what you claim day means in the bible.
