Now let us compare this with some Old Testament prophecies concerning Babylon. God will then reign over a kingdom of peace which shall never end and His people will rejoice in Him and be with Him throughout eternity. In fact, it begins all the way back in Genesis, where we will turn next.

So they would build a tower, no doubt higher than the previous floodwaters, and thus save themselves. The context will show that this verse has to do with the destruction of Jerusalem by the Babylonians under Nebuchadnezzar.

To summarize, the two cities become symbols of this controversy and show up again in the book of Revelation in symbolic form. Babylon is the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eye, the pride of life. The big thing in Christendom today Is Money.
