O.T. And N.T. Babylon Dual Prophecy and A Type of is America(clip) Judgement Day Is Real by Tim Conway
Jer 50:32 And the most proud shall stumble and fall, and none shall raise him up: and I will kindle a fire in his cities, and it shall devour all round about him.
Jer 50:36 A sword is upon the liars; and they shall dote: a sword is upon her mighty men; and they shall be dismayed.
Jer 50:37 A sword is upon their horses, and upon their chariots, and upon all the mingled people that are in the midst of her; and they shall become as women: a sword is upon her treasures; and they shall be robbed.
Jer 50:38 A drought is upon her waters; and they shall be dried up: for it is the land of graven images, and they are mad upon their idols.
The repetition of “A sword” in the beginning of each verse, by the figure anaphora, heightens the effect; the reiterated judgment is universal; the same sad stroke of the sword is upon each and all connected with guilty Babylon.
wise men — (Isa_47:13). Babylon boasted that it was the peculiar seat of wisdom and wise men, especially in astronomy and astrology.
as women — divested of all manliness (Nah_3:13).
Jer 50:1 The word that the LORD spake against Babylon and against the land of the Chaldeans by Jeremiah the prophet.

Jer 50:3 For out of the north there cometh up a nation against her, which shall make her land desolate, and none shall dwell therein: they shall remove, they shall depart, both man and beast.
second time out of the north
Jer 50:9 For, lo, I will raise and cause to come up against Babylon an assembly of great nations from the north country: and they shall set themselves in array against her; from thence she shall be taken: their arrows shall be as of a mighty expert man; none shall return in vain.
Jer 50:22 A sound of battle is in the land, and of great destruction.

Jer 50:24 I have laid a snare for thee, and thou art also taken, O Babylon, and thou wast not aware: thou art found, and also caught, because thou hast striven against the LORD.
Jer 50:27 Slay all her bullocks; let them go down to the slaughter: woe unto them! for their day is come, the time of their visitation.
Jer 50:46 At the noise of the taking of Babylon the earth is moved, and the cry is heard among the nations.
Dual NT Babylon is America
Rev 18:2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.
Rev 18:3 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.
Rev 18:4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.
Rev 18:5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.
Rev 18:8 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.
Rev 18:9 And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning,
Rev 18:10 Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come.
Rev 18:11 And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more:
Rev 16:2 And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshipped his image.
This is key to understand America is not literally Babylon as in the N.T. as later in CH 18 the fall of N.T. Babylon is after the mark of the beast system is full force this again is a mid trib event, after Babylon falls.
This is a dual Prophecy from the O.T. and also a Dual Prophecy from the Tribulation.
As Hitler was a type of the Antichrist, as Nero was, all types of, this is America, a type of N.T. Babylon.
To be literal Babylon we must see the mid trib and the thing happens after the mark of the beast comes. 666.
So I understand many believe America is N.T. Babylon, understood, let me say, we are not that far apart in this Prophetic belief.
All that OT and NT Babylon says will happen to America, and America fits the bill 100%. I would fully agree with many USA is Babylon as in Revelations, the reason I can not say it is the place literally , as always we must follow the progression of the book of revelations and not skip ahead, to fit a doctrine, feeling, or thought.
TPTB know how to device by manipulating bible prophecy, but guess what it matters not, we the type of Babylon is about to fall, mark my words this is so, so near.
I had a lot more to say, I decided to say little and let you see the Bibles own words and some commentaries.
I end with a short 3 min clip, just posted by Sermon index 5 min ago. It is fitting as I did this message 3 days ago.
