The definition of Babylon: babel, confusion[by mixing-Strong's]. In Revelation 16:19 the name changes to Babylon the Great. This Babylon is upon us which is "A beast" of Rev.13. This is a one-world-political-system.
Great = space and dimensions, appearance of things, mass and weight, height and length, number and quantity, abundance, importance *of things which overstep the providence of a created being, proud[presumptuous] things, full of arrogance, derogatory to the Majesty of God-Strong's.
Babylon the Great is the headquarters for the wicked system: the above definition gives clues as to where this will be located! This is Matt.24:4-5. This system holds itself out as a Christian-Nation! It is actually the most religious nation on earth - which is not good.
Previous Babylon[s] were a religious-dictatorships; with religion intertwined with government. Idol worship was the key. Dan.2 shows us a type and model of what is underway.
Modern Babylon the Great is disguised as a Christian-Nation. The above definition with * explains some big points. Pride is not good, especially when the "untouchable" factors in. The first Tribulation is of Satan: the second one is of our Lord-and He is not happy[Rev.18:21].
