Saudi Arabia has announced plans to build NEOM, a new, futuristic city in the North-West of the country that is built upon principles of renewable energy, technology, community, diversity, and modern architecture.
NEOM hopes to be the most advanced city in the world someday. According to the discoverNEOM.com’s press release, NEOM will be so advanced, it’s possible that the robots may outnumber humans.
On October 24th, Prince Mohammad bin Salman announced the Mega City NEOM. The name NEOM means “New Future” and comes from two words and two languages. First is the Greek word NEO meaning New and then the M stands for the Arabic word Mostaqbal, meaning Future. It will operate as an independent economic zone – with its own laws, taxes and regulations. NEOM will be massive, at over 10,000 miles or over 26,000 km, it will be more than 33 times larger than New York City and a little less than Massachusetts. Located in the North-West corner of Saudi Arabia, NEOM loosely connects the 3 continents of Africa, Asia and Europe and hopes to be a leading global hub, 70% of the world’s population will be able to reach it in under eight hours.
Phase one is due for completion in 2020, with the final brick laid in 2025
The harlot city of Revelation 17–18 is described as sitting in a desert. Of course, Saudi Arabia itself sits upon the great Arabian Desert.
Today, the most violent jihadist terrorist organisations in the world find their ideological roots in Saudi Arabia. Whether we are speaking of al-Qaeda (global), ISIS (Syria, Iraq, Libya, Sinai), the Taliban (Afghanistan), Abu Sayyaf (Philippines), Lashkar-e-Taiba (Pakistan), Jabhat al-Nusra (Syria), Al-Shabab (Somalia), or Boko Haram (Nigeria), they are all Salafi groups whose ideological roots extend directly to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Its first export is not oil but radical Islam.
When we study the picture the Scriptures paint of the great harlot, we discover that, rather than feeling any guilt for the blood she has spilled, instead she is proud, intoxicated, and lusting for more. She flaunts and raises her golden cup high, enticing the inhabitants of the world to partake of her maddening wine and the immorality of her false religion. Who better fits that description than Saudi Arabia and its barbarous national, and now increasingly global, religion: Islam?
“And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony of Jesus and because of the word of God, and those who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received the mark on their forehead and on their hand.” Revelation 20:4
In Saudi Arabia, if someone leaves Islam to become a Christian, he or she may be legally beheaded by the government.
The last-days Babylon will be an importer of, among other things, “slaves and human lives” Revelation 18:13
Saudi sheikh Saleh Al-Fawzan rather brazenly declared that “slavery is a part of Islam.” He is a member of the Senior Council of Clerics, Saudi Arabia’s highest religious body, and of the Council of Religious Edicts and Research; he is the imam of the prominent Prince Mitaeb Mosque in the Saudi capital city of Riyadh; and he is a professor at Imam Mohamed Bin Saud Islamic University.
The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia perfectly matches the biblical description of the great harlot Babylon.
