    ISAIAH 13:11 AND I WILL PUNISH THE WORLD FOR THEIR EVIL AND THE WICKED FOR THEIR INIQUITY AND I WILL CAUSE THE ARROGANCY OF THE PROUD TO CEASE AND WILL LAY LOW THE HAUGHTINESS OF THE TERRIBLE PROVERBS 16:5 EVERYONE THAT IS PROUD IN HEART IS AN ABOMINATION TO THE LORD THOUGH HAND JOIN IN HAND HE SHALL NOT BE UNPUNISHED

    "The noise of a multitude in the mountains (high places), like as of a great people; a tumultuous noise of the kingdoms of nations gathered together: the LORD of hosts musters the host of the battle." The heavens shall be rolled back like a scroll, and He shall call with a great shout to all His holy angels; first to gather up His Elect, and immediately after to utterly take away all the wicked.

    The chapter refers to the last days, looking at world events of the day makes this chapter pretty scary.
  • PEARL SANDOVAL for verse 12
    I think the scripture refers to the refinement and the purity of a human being in Jesus Christ. It is He who purifies us and refines us in mind, spirit and soul to be used for His honor and glory and to praise Him. He is God. He came to cleanse us from all unrighteousness and sin, iniquities and transgressions. Thus we become pure and refined through Him for Him, through Him
  • Gregory J.
    Couple this verse with Isiah 21, Jeremiah 50 51 and you get the whole picture of a future event. Babylon is Saudi Arabia more specific Mecca. Elam Iran will attack and destroy Mecca because of the two different sects of Islam, Shiite Muslims against Sunni Muslim.
  • Caro
    I am thinking this is possibly Babylon but the future Babylon and not the one that existed in Daniels Day....maybe even mystery Babylon that the book of Revelation speaks about...a city filled with sin, wealth and the Word calls her that grerat whore. She will be destroyed in one hour...maybe this is Mecca because the world did trade with her...but she shall fall in one hour....I don 't think America figures in this prophecy because we are not near the desert ..nor are we the center where man goes to worship...this is an Arabic Babylon
