The Rebirth Of Rome, Jerusalem & Babylon, Iraq
When the Antichrist takes control of the world, his government will function out of three major cities.
From Babylon he will direct his worldwide empire of economic and financial concerns. Revelation 18:12-13
Bible prophecy says the ancient city of Babylon, Iraq will be rebuilt and become the greatest center of wealth, commerce and power in the ‘last days’ of history. The books of Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel and Revelation are explicit on this subject. While Skeptics and cynics may disagree, the fact is Babylon is being rebuilt right now, in part with U.S. taxpayer funds and Iraqi leaders hope that eventually millions of tourists will come to visit.

The city of Babylon will be rebuilt and become the commercial center of the world and the center of the Antichrist’s kingdom: Ever since the days of Nimrod, human beings have tried to rule the world. To do so they must control the economy. During the Tribulation, Antichrist will rule the world, not only by an army but also by controlling commerce. People will not be able to buy or sell without his permission except on the blackmarket.
From Rome he will rule the Political world.
The Lord shows Daniel many years prior that after the fall of the pagan kindgom of Rome, or the fourth Global kindgom, would arise another power that would seek to regain this Global kingdom for its own evil purposes. Daniel saw that when pagan Rome fell it would split into ten separate kindgoms. He even saw that three of the nations that were part of that split, wouldn’t go along with new plans to regain this global kingdom. What type of kingdom was this that was so evil that three nations were willing to die to prevent it's rise? And just as Daniel was shown by the Lord, it all happened with perfect timing. History records perfectly every step of Rome in this regard. This is what's so amazing about studying prophecy in the last days. We have HISTORY to look back on! We can actually match historic events with prophetic utterances in the Word of the Christian God.
From Jerusalem he will control the Religious world after making a covenant with the Jews. 2 Thessalonians 2:4
The Antichrist will deify himself - just like the Caesar's did. He will proclaim himself to be God. he will demand that he be worshipped and will establish himself in the temple of God. There is only one place where this temple of God can be and that is on Mount Moriah in Jerusalem, on the site where the Dome of the Rock and other Moslem shrines now stand. There are many places in the Bible that pinpoint this location as the one where the Jews will rebuild their Temple.The Israelis will then be permitted to re-institute the sacrifice and offering aspect of the law of Moses. This demands that the Temple be rebuilt, because according to the law of Moses, sacrifices can only be offered in the Temple at Jerusalem. Apparently all this will be done under the protection of the Antichrist of Rome. The Arabs are not going to like this idea of rebuilding the Temple one bit.
