Those who are willing to make an honest assessment of prophetic scripture will find that the mysterious city of “Babylon” in Revelations can be identified as none other than Jerusalem.

Consider these parallels between Jerusalem and Babylon, symbolized as the “whore” in Revelations 17.

Case study 1. The blood of the saints
Jerusalem:
That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar. -Matthew 23:35

Babylon:
And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth. -Revelations 18:24 

Case study 2. Boasting followed by sudden destruction
Jerusalem
You said, ‘I will continue forever— the eternal queen! ’ But you did not consider these things or reflect on what mighthappen. 8 “Now then, listen, you wanton creature, lounging in your security and saying to yourself, ‘I am, and there is none besides me. I will never be a widow or suffer the loss of children.’ Both of these will overtake you in a moment, on a single day: loss of children and widowhood.
-Isaiah 47:7 

Babylon
How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow. Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her. -Revelation 18:7 

Case study 3. Their appearance and destruction
Jerusalem
And you, O desolate one, what will you do? Although you dress in scarlet, Although you decorate yourself with ornaments of gold, Although you enlarge your eyes with paint, In vain you make yourself beautiful; Your lovers despise you; They seek your life. -Jeremiah 4:30-31 

Babylon
And the woman was clothed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls, having in her hand a gold cup full of abominations and of the unclean things of her immorality – Revelation 17:4

And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire. – Revelations 17:16 

There you go. Read through the links at the bottom for more. One has to be delusional or ignorantly stubborn to deny these parallels.

If the Bible is correct on this matter, then Jerusalem is indeed Babylon. And if that wasn’t bad enough, there is also evidence to show that Jerusalem/Babylon is also closely associated with the beasts kingdom.

The whore,drunk with the blood of God’s holy people, is revealed to be a “great city that rules over the kings of the earth.” Also, note that this whore rides a beast, described in the same way as the 1st beast mentioned in revelation 13… with 10 horns and 7 heads.

The time may have come for christians to embrace a reality where Jerusalem, of the state of Israel, has been proven to be allied to the “bad guys” of prophecy.
