JOEL C. ROSENBERG: BABYLON RISING, THEME PARK AND ALL



A few months ago, my friend Ray and I were talking about how all the end-times puzzle pieces were clicking in to place. While we both know that the rapture is imminent (meaning it could happen at ANY time - there are no further prophecies that must precede it), there ARE certain things that must be in place during the 7-year tribulation period. Examples include:
- A third temple where the antichrist will put a stop to sacrifices, and declare himself to be God
- technology to institute a one-world currency
- technology to institute a 666 mark of the beast ID
- a reformed Israel in enough trouble to sign a peace agreement

All of these things (and many more) are either already in place, or ready to go in very short order. However, one thing missing from today's headlines that would fit with a literal interpretation of the book of Revelation is a rebuilt, vibrant Babylon. Although Sadam wanted to build that chunk of geography up again, he did not succeed. Babylon's continued state of neglect has been a fact that made me wonder if, perhaps, despite all the other signs, the end-times could still be many years or decades away.
Now, however, comes this news, courtesy of Joel Rosenberg:

Wow! Maybe the feeling I had yesterday wasn't just a feeling after all. A Babylon theme park huh? Hey I know a clown named Binky who is for hire-haha-sorry Tom bad joke. Joel is for sure on top of all this stuff-we can chat more tonight.
