I have found in answering-christianity.com the
following Old Testament quotation: "Arabia has not yet met its
threshold, and "and the time of her harvest shall come." (Jeremiah
Where did the word Arabia appear in this verse ? It
is about Babylon here not Arabia. I think this is an error to
mention Arabia in Jeremiah 51:33, but maybe I'am wrong.
Wa Alaikum As'salam dear brother Idris,
All other English translations, and also the Arabic
one, say "THE
DAUGHTER OF BABYLON".
We know that Arabia is called the Daughter of Babylon. In fact, the
Bible speaks about the fall of three Babylons:
1- Babylon (the Assyrian one). It
fell to Islam.
2- The VIRGIN DAUGHTER of Babylon (pagan
It was a virgin because it had no official Divine Religion like
Islam yet. It
fell to Islam.
This is the time when it began to meet its threshold.
3- Future Babylon, THE GREAT HARLOT (prostitute). It
will fall to Islam after
the return of Prophet
peace be upon him.
I have thoroughly demonstrated them from the Bible
with ample passages with my debate with Anthony Rogers. You can
visit the MS-DOC file at:
As-Salam aleikum wa rahmatullahi wa baraketuh dear
thank you for the explanation. Interesting, I didn't
know about this, since I thought that Babylon is referring maybe to
the territories of modern Iraq. The camel driver from Isaiah 21:7 is
almost certainly Prophet Mohammed (pbuh), but which Babylon Isaiah
has in mind two verses later (i.e. Isaiah 21:9)? Is he talking about
Iraq or pagan Arabia ?
As to the Future Babylon, which is called "THE GREAT
HARLOT", some Christians says that it refers to the Roman Catholic
Church, precisely the Vatican, and it seems they have a pretty good
Wa Alaikum As'salam Wa Rahmatu Allah Wa Barakatuh
dear brother Idris,
You are most welcome, akhi. Jazaka Allah Khayr.
As to Isaiah 21:7, we read:
Knox Bible (KNOX)
7 A chariot he saw, with two out-riders (chariots), one
that rode on an ass (singular),
one that rode on a camel (singular);
looked long at them, watching them eagerly.
NOTE: A Chariot master is a Servant of GOD who is
SENT BY GOD ALMIGHTY in the Bible: 1
Also, Christ fulfilled the riding of the ass or
donkey vision, when he entered Jerusalem on an ass, in John
long at them, watching them eagerly.”
clearly means that these are two
very important Servants.
8 And he cried, A lion: My lord, I stand continually
upon the watchtower in the daytime, and I am set in my ward whole
9 And, behold, here cometh a chariot of men, with a couple of
horsemen. And he answered and said, Babylon is fallen, is fallen;
and all the graven images of her gods he
(Muhammad, Islam) hath broken unto the ground.
13 The burden upon Arabia….
Babylon did indeed fall before Islam and the Islamic
nation under the guidance of Muhammad (peace be upon him) did indeed
succeed in eradicating the worship of idols from Babylon replacing
it with the worship of God alone. In fact, the Muslims
were the only believers in the God of Isaiah to ever succeed in
fulfilling this prophesy.
As to "The
burden upon Arabia ..." (Isaiah
what does it mean?
"…which also means an oracle is a word sometimes used
in the prophetical writings to indicate a
divine message of judgment" (Scofield
Study Bible New King James Version, note 1, p. 792)
The pagan religions of Arabia had all originated from
Babel. Pagan Arabia is called the Daughter of Babylon: Isaiah
is fallen, is fallen” clearly
refers to the fall of ALL
OF THE IDOLS AND PAGAN RELIGIONS in
all of the Arabic and Arabian lands.
In fact, Isaiah
47:1 and Jeremiah
give a mighty prophecy against the pagan religions of Arabia, and
prophesied about its end, and replacement with a NEW DIVINE
Let’s read the two verses:
Come down, and sit in the dust, O
virgin daughter of Babylon, sit on the ground: there
is no throne, O daughter of the Chaldeans: for thou shalt no more be
called tender and delicate.
Now why was Arabia called VIRGIN DAUGHTER OF
BABYLON? Because the Arabs as I mentioned were fresh, and had
no previous scriptures, nor religions.
Arabia was a virgin in that. It had no previous religion, and it
was ready for a Divine Religion to be sent to it, which is Islam!
Allah Almighty Said in the Holy Quran:
Our Clear Signs are rehearsed to them, they say, "This is only a man
who wishes to hinder you from the (worship) which your fathers
practised." And they say, "This is only a falsehood invented!" and
the Unbelievers say of the Truth when it comes to them, "This
is nothing but evident magic!"
We had not given them Books which they could study, nor
sent apostles to them before thee as Warners.
Furthermore, we read in Jeremiah
For thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel;
The daughter of Babylon is like a threshingfloor, it is time to
thresh her: yet a little while, and
the time of her harvest shall come.
Arabia’s harvest is indeed the Divine Religion,
Islam. GOD Almighty’s Original Faith on Earth, and the RELIGION OF
THE PEOPLE OF KEDAR is Islam. Muhammad was the Servant of GOD
Almighty to come, that was mentioned in Isaiah 41 & 42.
The Great Harlot:
It is definitely quite possible that it includes the
Catholic Church, since it is this church that cemented the false lie
of trinity. But most definitely, it does include all of the world's
corruption, and also the people of Israel's part of it, since Allah
Almighty in the Glorious Quran did Promise that the Jews will RISE
IN EARTH MIGHTY HIGHTS in corruption and wickedness. They will
of evil power and might on earth. See Noble
