Babylon [a real place] in New York was prophetically named… The bible-reading Mrs. Conklin compared the new hamlet to the biblical city of Babylon and proposed that name in apparent defiance of the area's rather bawdy reputation as a stop-over place for travelers on Long Island's Her son was appalled by the use of an "unholy" name. The family legend states she replied: "But it will be a new Babylon." The name stuck, despite some effort to change it. The Statue of Liberty is loosely associated with The great seal of france which has seven points to her crown and which is associated with the Roman Goddess Juno which is also the Greek goddess Hera. Roman deity Libertas assumed goddess status and had two temples on two of Romes seven hills. The seven spikes on the crown represent the Seven Seas and seven continents Rev 17:3 Then the angel carried me away in the Spirit into a wilderness. There I saw a woman sitting on...a beast, [So not part of the beast but associated with.] babylon the great, the mother of prostitutes, and of the abominations of the earth. verse 6 I saw that the woman was drunk with the blood of God’s holy people, the blood of those who bore testimony to Jesus A definite scripture which brings Rome, Istanbul and Jerusalem into focus : The seven heads are seven hills on which the woman sits, New York has an area called seven hills but does not sit on them to my knowledge. But this scripture “The waters you saw, where the prostitute sits, are peoples, multitudes, nations and languages. 16The beast and the ten horns you saw will hate the prostitute. They will bring her to ruin and leave her naked; they will eat her flesh and burn her with fire Then swings the idea back over to New York. 3 For all the nations have drunk the maddening wine of her adulteries. The kings of the earth committed adultery with her, and the merchants of the earth grew rich from her excessive luxuries.” In her heart she boasts, ‘I sit enthroned as queen.I am not a widow;I will never mourn.’ The above scripture leaves out Rome, Istanbul and Jerusalem which have all been invaded and destroyed to some extent. And in our modern world none of these has a global outreach. ‘Woe! Woe to you, great city, where all who had ships on the sea became rich through her wealth! The above scripture excludes Rome and Jerusalem and to a lesser extent Istanbul. verse 24In her was found the blood of prophets and of God’s holy people, of all who have been slaughtered on the earth.” This scripture points to a future major persecution., alternatively it brings Rome, Istanbul and Jerusalem back into contention for past persecutions. But for me, New York is Babylon the Great.
