Something I forgot to tell you about in "News 358" concerning those pictures of the City of Babylon and them preparing to finish rebuilding it, is that, from what I have read, at least 80% to more than 90% of the structures you see standing in those pictures were all still standing when the archaeologists dug them up. There was relatively little damage to those structures caused only by centuries of decay and non maintenance and NO damage caused by any kind of destructive force such as a siege, fire, or earthquake.
They only had to do a little restoring for those buildings and walls to be what you see in those and other pictures. That becomes much more obvious when you see the close up pictures of the walls and can easily see the damage caused only by aging and erosion. It is amazing they are so well preserved, an absolute miracle of God.
The below picture from the World Monuments Fund shows the relief detail on the Ishtar Gate in 2009 before restoration, after being uncovered by archaeologists more than half a century ago and subjected to further weather erosion and look at just how well preserved that wall is. And that was carved into mud bricks 2,500 years ago by King Nebuchadnezzar's workers, not stone, but mud.
The below 2013 picture from the World Monument Fund shows the same relief details on entire walls at least 3 to 4 stories high that were built by King Nebuchadnezzar 2,500 years ago. If you look closely at those walls, you can see bulls and dragons. The images at the bottom are what they call dragons. Note that in this picture they are removing the concrete walk ways because they are accelerating the decay of the walls, which you can see happening at the bottoms of the walls as dark areas and is proof they have been doing restoration work since Obama started funding this work in 2008 via the US State Department with plans to start major construction work by the end of 2018, you know, this year.
Also, many of the mud bricks in many of the walls, especially for the government or royal buildings like the Palace, still have King Nebuchadnezzar's name inscribed into the mud meaning that King Nebuchadnezzar built those buildings and walls about 2,500 years ago. In the aerial view of the city below on the right end of the picture, you will see a building identified as "Babylon Palace" which is the very building that King Nebuchadnezzar sat in when holding court and the Biblical prophet, Daniel, served the King in 2,500 years ago!
In a German museum, they have a detailed replica of the wall which stood behind King Nebuchadnezzar's throne, when the King held court, and Daniel served in front of and saw almost every day of his life.
Think about that one for a while. Daniel stood, walked, breathed, worked, ate, slept, and served the King in those buildings in those pictures and he knew every inch of them AND most of those buildings and walls are still standing today, 2,500 years later.
Most of those structures are 2,500 years old and still have the animals like winged lions (the symbol of Babylon just like the American eagle), bulls, and dragons clearly carved into the mud bricks looking like they were carved into those bricks maybe a few hundred years ago. Many of those bricks still have the paints and dies used to color those bricks 2,500 years ago so that we know exactly what those buildings and walls looked like and we can accurately rebuild or restore those buildings and walls in their entirety today.
Look at those pictures and think about those things; does it look or sound like the City of Babylon was every destroyed? No, it was abandoned about 800 to 900 years ago and God covered it with sand to protect it for today. Babylon has NEVER been destroyed, NEVER! The city was just deserted and God covered it up with sand to preserve it for today. Therefore, that prophesy about God destroying Babylon and it never again being rebuilt could not possibly have happened and MUST still happen in the future, you know, just as described in the book of Revelation.
Just look at those pictures and think about that.
BTW, everyone has heard the globalists like Soros, Obama, Kelly, the Clintons, the European leaders, and others openly talking about setting up their one-world-government, you know, where the upper class trash plan to rule the entire planet from...what capitol city? Have you ever heard any of them actually mention which major city will be the global capitol?
No, we all just ASSUMED that the globalists would just choose a major city like Rome, London, Paris, New York, Los Angeles, or Tokyo to rule the planet from.
Why do you think they are putting so much money and effort into rebuilding Babylon, you know, the most famous city in the world that was the greatest city in the world under King Nebuchadnezzar?
Did you know that the British Royal Family has purchased land near ancient Babylon and plans to move their entire family there to help rule the world? Did you know the British Royal Family has recently publically stated they really don't like Windsor Castle, where they currently live, because it is too old and energy inefficient, and they have closed off some of it to save money? Did you know that the Vatican has purchased land near ancient Babylon to build a new Vatican and move their entire headquarters there? Did you know the globalists plan to dredge the Euphrates River up to just below Ancient Babylon and build a port there so ships can dock in the new, rebuilt or "mystery Babylon"? Did you know that the upper class trash are planning to rebuild Babylon as the greatest city in the planet's history, as the economic and religious center of the world? Did you know there is already an airport and an air base near Ancient Babylon where US Air Force units were stationed in 2003?
Yeah, just look at those pictures and you are looking at the future global capitol for this planet...Babylon!
Get the picture yet?
The Bible got it right almost 2,000 years ago and God wasn't wrong when He wrote it. King Nebuchadnezzar's dream is right now going full circle from his dream beginning in Babylon 2,500 years ago to it ending in Babylon in the near future, with Babylon as the greatest city in the world...AGAIN!
