Babylon the Great
“And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.” (Rev 17:5 KJV)
The name Babylon comes from Babel, which means confusion. Babel is the mother of the sin of false religion, rebellion, sorcery, and astrology.
We get a rare lunar eclipse tonight called the ‘blood moon’. The moon will literally look the color of blood. As it happens, Joel prophesied in the Old Testament that the moon would be turned to blood before the second coming of Christ.
“30 And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke.
31 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come.”
(Joe 2:30-31 KJV)
