    Because then we wouldn't need people (who want to be special) to tell us what it means. How can you sell books and videos that way?

    It’s an interpretation but Elam, Iran is where God says He will set His Throne. Jeremiah 49:38 ‘I will set my throne in Elam’.

    God’s Throne I believe to be His Prophet or Messenger and recently there appeared the Bab and Baha’u’llah Who destroyed the ‘wicked kings and princes’ with the sword of Their Words. All the major dynasties disappeared after they received Tablets from Baha’u’llah warning of their imminent downfall if they did not turn towards God.

    Babylon in my understanding refers to the god of ‘materialism’ which has usurped and replaced the one true God in the hearts of men. Materialism is the prostitute with whom the nations and peoples of the world have committed fornification and has destroyed spirituality and godliness and introduced greed, corruption, war and oppression.

    Once this millstone around the neck of humanity has been discarded, then all men will be as brothers and cooperation will replace competition.

    God’s new world, I believe, will put people not profits and power first. Our world is in decline and is collapsing while the world of godliness is like a woman in pain struggling to be born so what we are witnessing today is the death pangs of the old world and the birth pangs of the new one side by side. Good and God’s ways will triumph in the end I believe, but not without excruciating pain and suffering which we are beginning to see all over the world.

    Some would say it was a pronouncement of doom upon multiple places including Babylon and Arabia.

    What evidence is there to support this claim?

    All these places mentioned in Isaiah 21 are in Saudi Arabia. If you think Babylon refers to Iraq, you are biblically wrong. The whole chapter refers to the new Babylon mentioned in Revelation.
    Isaiah 21:16: "All the glory of Arabia will disappear"

    If you look at the descriptions of Babylon in Revelation, you will clearly see that it is Arabia. It can only be Arabia.

    No I don't think that mystery Babylon is Iraq. Then it wouldn't be a mystery. :p
    "Only be Arabia"? Okay, give me 2 solid points why it can only be Arabia.
