Jedda is the entrance to Mecca and there, Saudi Arabia has embarked on building the tallest structure in the world. Currently Dubai boasts the tallest building and the mark of Islam is tweeted seen lit via LED screen, which is on the building itself as to appear from as far as the telescope can see Islam’s declaration.
“There is no god but Allah and Muhammad is his messenger” is the mark of Arabia, its kings and princes from Dubai and Saudi Arabia and all the way to Qatar. It is in the name of this emblem was shed the blood of millions of saints and now in Saudi Arabia, soon will crop out of the desert another ‘tallest building’ to resemble Islam’s pride and desire to break through the heavens. The Muslims are telling the world that ‘size matters’. Mecca has the largest clock in the world, Dubai has the second tallest building Khalifa Tower (The Tower of The Caliph), which houses the mosque on the highest pinnacle in the world and the building itself acts as the largest LED screen in the world (32,467 square meters). Mecca has the most massive structure ever built which sits on what they literally call Jabal Babel (Mount Babel) with the Seven Towers overlooking their effeminate cubic structure they call the Ka’ba. She is seen adorned with the largest in the world the purest quality silk Burqa etched with (from a Christian perspective) verses of blasphemy weaved with the purest silver and gold and made for the sole purpose to denounce the Trinity. The ‘purest’ ‘greatest’ ‘highest’ ‘richest’ ‘tallest’ ‘largest’ ‘most expensive’ ‘best’ ‘purest’… this is pride in its essence that is meant to blaspheme the truly Highest of all: The Triune God Himself.
The new tower in the image advertised by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia does not say the “highest tower”, but “Tower of The Highest”, a strange rendering even in the Arabic.
The Kingdom Tower is a whole one complete kilometer tall built to provide views of the Red Sea. Its foundations will be 200 meters deep to withstand the salt of the Red Sea and the engineers are currently testing materials, such as concrete and steel, out of which the massive skyscraper could be constructed. Yet all one has to do is to search “Red Sea” in the Bible and will conclude that the biblical God is not going to remain silent: “The earth is moved at the noise of their fall, at the cry the noise thereof was heard in the Red sea.” (Jeremiah 49:21)
But even this ‘tallest’ building in the world despite its cost (over one billion) and its height exceeding what is at Mecca, it is no match to the height of the 607 meters Towers of Mount Babel which stands as the world’s third tallest building made to overlook the Ka’ba. It is dwarfed only by 632-meter-high Shanghai Tower and Dubai’s 828-meter-high Burj Khalifa; the project in Mecca is 15 billion dollars; this is 15 times greater than the tallest building in the world that is planed in Jeddah.
Visitors to the holy city of Makkah have been wonderstruck by the stately magnificence largest Clock Tower in the world. The $15 billion project, which took almost eight years to complete, is not only an architectural marvel but also a testimony to the Herculean efforts which went into its design, logistics and construction.
When two decades ago, I stated that Arabia is what God intended in prophecy, the ‘experts’ laughed, for such significant marvels were not yet built. The key when analyzing Prophecy is not to trust your senses, but to remain on a tract that is directed by God who forsees the future. Besides Arabia, who today can point any other place to qualify as “Mystery Babylon”? Besides Arabia, there is no place on earth today that match where stands the largest structure in the world, used for a religious purpose, all worshipping in one tongue and regardless of their mother tongue, and is holy to more than 1.5 billion people on earth that is called Mount Babel, decked with gold and silver, with a gate to God (Bab-Allah, or Bab-El), except the one in Mecca overlooking the Ka’ba, especially that since Mecca, is both a “city” and a “tower”:
“And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.” (Genesis 11:4)
Al-Sharq Al-Awasat, the prominent Middle East Newspaper, even names it as such “Mount Babel,”: this to say about the massive project that was completed in Mecca:
“The project Towers Of The House is the first project in Mecca … which carry seven towers … “Towers Of The House” is on the area of Mount Babel in Ajyad. The site overlooks directly on the Haram al-Sharif (Holy House [Ka’ba]).”
“is also the largest tower in the world in terms of area. Contractor Bin Laden Group, Saudi Arabia … Classified as the largest building urban in terms of the total area on the face of the globe, where excess space land for the project 1.4 million square meters and consists of 7 towers”.
What other spiritual city is built on what is literally called “Mount Babel” which is also an observatory to monitor the movement of the moon and is called “Seven Towers of the House” reminiscent to the ancient name of Babel, which was also called “The house of the seven lights of the earth”?
Where else do we find an edifice decked with gold and silver, exactly as John said in Revelation, littered with statements that are biblically considered blasphemous, treated as if it was a woman, and has a massive gate made of pure gold that is literally called Bab-Illah (Babel) “The Gate to God”?
There is no place on earth that matches such requirements than Mecca.
Even the Islamic sources discusses the Ka’ba as Babel “The Gate to God,” or Bab-Illah in Arabic, and is mentioned in the highest authority in Islam, the Hadith:
“… the Kaaba is the house of God and God’s sanctuary is Bab-Illah (the gate to God), so when they went there, they stood by the door in supplication …”
Babel, the English pronunciation, and Bab-Illah are identical in meaning. The difference is simply in the accent.
And what other city do we find that even the Bible precisely pinpoints a geographic location for this “Babylon” as was predicted in Jeremiah 49:21, literally, “the Red Sea” which confirms Arabia’s destruction?
The tallest building in the world is built to overlook the Red Sea which has oil in abundance. So what other city can qualify as Mystery Babylon that also has “pitch” in abundance which God promises will burn forever? “Its streams shall be turned into pitch and its dust into brimstone; its land shall become burning pitch. It shall not be quenched night or day; its smoke shall ascend forever” (Isaiah 34:8-10) And what other city is called “Teman” and “Dedan” besides Arabia? (see Ezekiel 25:12-13).
And what other spiritually significant city can we find in which it is threatened by its own worshippers besides Mecca? The Bible insists that Babylon, the harlot, is destroyed by her own lovers and today we see Iran threatening and stating that Karbala is more important than Mecca, that if Mecca reaches its pride that Allah himself will wipe it off the face of the earth and Iran is so willing to comply to Allah’s command while even God in the Bible says “I will sweep it with the broom of destruction” (Isaiah 12:15).
The broom of destruction! Anyone who has seen footage of a nuclear explosion has seen the fury and the power of the ominous cloud that sweeps up everything in its path. Anyone who has seen the Twin Towers fall on 9-11-2001, will also see God’s vengeance on Babylon, for its towers will also fall.
