Question: Regarding “mystery Babylon”… Doesn’t it appear that mystery Babylon, in some ways, is most similar to modern day America? America has turned away from God in so many ways. As it says something along the lines of how the merchants of the world will weep, because nobody buys their cargoes any more, I cannot think of anywhere that consumes more than the U.S. does. Therefore, it would make sense if mystery Babylon was the U.S. I was wondering why you did not seem to believe that?
Answer: Zechariah 5:11, in its prophetic context, persuades Dr. Dave that the Babylon of the end times is located where Babylon has always been.
