Prophecy Sign: The destruction of Mystery Babylon, (Rome?)
There are several prophecies including the Prophecy of the Popes which predict the coming destruction of Rome. There is also bible prophecy which foretells of the destruction of a major city during the coming Tribulation period. This city is one that rules over the citizens of the earth and is looked to for it's economic power. There is nothing in the book of Revelation that distinctly identifies Rome as the city to be destroyed, but conversely, there is nothing that says it won't be that city.
Nevertheless, ISIS has it's eyes cast upon Rome with the goal of destroying the Vatican and the Catholic Church and taking control of the city in the name of Islam.
In one hour such great wealth has been brought to ruin!' "Every sea captain, and all who travel by ship, the sailors, and all who earn their living from the sea, will stand far off. When they see the smoke of her burning, they will exclaim, 'Was there ever a city like this great city?' They will throw dust on their heads, and with weeping and mourning cry out: "'Woe! Woe to you, great city, where all who had ships on the sea became rich through her wealth! In one hour she has been brought to ruin!' Revelation 18:17-19 NIV
Peter the Roman, who will pasture his sheep in many tribulations, and when these things are finished, the city of seven hills [i.e.
be destroyed, and the dreadful judge will judge his people. The End. (Prophecy of the Popes)
German Reporter Reveals
A veteran German journalist who became the first to gain access as an embedded reporter with Islamic State (ISIS) revealed the jihadist terror group plans to bring nuclear annihilation across the globe. The journalist, Jurgen Todenhofer (75), released his findings in a book called "Inside IS - Ten Days in the Islamic State," reports the UK's Daily Express on Friday. Todenhofer, who previously was an MP in German Chancellor Angela Merkel's CDU party before turning to journalism in 2000 as a war reporter, spent ten days with
ISIS. He was overseen
during his visit by "Jihadi John," the ISIS
terrorist from the UK
named Mohammed Emwazi who gained fame in gruesome beheading videos. According
to the journalist, the West is unprepared for ISIS. He writes that
"the terrorists plan on killing several hundred million people. The
west is drastically underestimating the power of ISIS."
