Combining RR-BB.com into RaptureForums.com

Because it has become insanely difficult to manage a bulletin board these days, the managers of Rapture Ready and Rapture Forums have decided to join our boards together under a software program that is easier to manage. Because RF has their database operating well under an Enforo license, we decided to make Rapture Forums the focal point of a consolidation. Since Chris, the owner of RF, has long experience in running a forum, he can better manage the problems that come with this technology.

If you do not have an account at https://www.raptureforums.com/forums/, please sign up. By the end of November, it will become the forward address of RR-BB.com

    Pope Benedict decried the spate of bombings in a telegram sent to Cardinal Emmanuel III Delly, patriarch of Babylon of the Chaldeans by the Vatican's Secretary of State.

    Jer 50:24 I have laid a snare for thee, and thou art also taken, O Babylon, and thou wast not aware: thou art found, and also caught, because thou hast striven against the LORD.
    Jer 50:25 The LORD hath opened his armory, and hath brought forth the weapons of his indignation: for this is the work of the Lord GOD of hosts in the land of the Chaldeans.
    Isaiah 13:17-22

    Behold, I will stir up the Medes against them, which shall not regard silver; and as for gold, they shall not delight in it.

    Their bows also shall dash the young men to pieces; and they shall have no pity on the fruit of the womb; their eyes shall not spare children.

    And Babylon, the glory of kingdoms, the beauty of the Chaldees' excellency, shall be as when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah.

    It shall never be inhabited, neither shall it be dwelt in from generation to generation: neither shall the Arabian pitch tent there; neither shall the shepherds make their fold there.

    But wild beasts of the desert shall lie there; and their houses shall be full of doleful creatures; and owls shall dwell there, and satyrs shall dance there.

    And the wild beasts of the islands shall cry in their desolate houses, and dragons in their pleasant palaces: and her time is near to come, and her days shall not be prolonged.

        Whether these references are to a literal city of Babylon on the banks of the Euphrates is the subject of great debate. We do know that ancient Babylon was not destroyed, but was overthrown by the Medes and the Persians quite peacefully one night. If we take the Bible seriously, Babylon is destined to rise again to power to receive the judgment that Isaiah, Jeremiah, and the Apostle John have described.

                  Honestly, there cannot be much debate about where Mystery Babylon is. It is Rome. The same book that mentions it is the one that also tells us where it is.

                    Two Babylons.

                    The world religious system (Rome, etc.,.) and the actual city of Babylon will
                    both be destroyed.

                    Revelation 17 details the destruction of the religious system.

                    Notice Rev. 18 begins with, "And after these things . . . "

                    And after what things?

                    After the destruction of the religious system in the preceding chapter.

                    Revelation 18 details the destruction of the actual city of Babylon, the world
                    commercial center at the time.

                    Jeremiah 51 pinpoints the geographic location:

                    " . . . in the land of the Chaldeans . . ."

                    "And I will render unto Babylon and to all the inhabitants of Chaldea all their evil that they have done . . ."

                    " . . . and my blood upon the inhabitants of Chaldea . . ."

                    "A sound of a cry cometh from Babylon, and great destruction from the land of the Chaldeans"

                    Also in Isaiah 13:

                    "And Babylon, the glory of kingdoms, the beauty of the Chaldees' excellency, shall be as when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah."

                    Where is Chaldea?

                        Maj. Gen. Rick Nash, Multi-National Division – South commanding general, Brig. Gen. Gerald Lang, MND-S deputy commanding general for support, Command Sgt. Maj. Doug Julin, MND-S senior enlisted leader and other Soldiers and civilians visited the site July 18 to see what this ancient city has to offer for Iraq.

                        “The mission (to Babylon) was to educate those on the command staff and some of the primary staff members on the importance of the religious aspects of this country and what there is to offer,” said Julin. “Even though we are at war there are some very important things we have to preserve here and help them preserve as well.”

                            The 172nd Infantry Brigade, which patrolled the northern half of Babil province when it arrived in October, now oversees all of Babil along with Najaf, Karbala and Qadisiyah provinces, according to Maj. Richard Brown, a Reserve officer who runs the 172nd’s civil affairs group.

                            Last week, the brigade opened a $3.1 million Central Euphrates Farmers Market in Babil.

                            "It is the biggest market of its kind south of Baghdad and north of Karbala," he said. "The market is owned by both Sunni and Shiite, and we expect it to be a profitable business."
