"Who is the 'King of Babylon'"


Who is the King of Babylon? Did Jesus give his name? (see below)

Isaiah 14:04 That thou shalt take up this proverb against the king of Babylon, and say, How hath the oppressor ceased! The golden city ceased!

Isaiah 14: 12 -15 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.

Luke 10:18 - And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.

King of Babylon – Who is the current ruler of Babylon?  Who on earth controls the fate of Babylon at this present time?

When Jesus said the words as recorded in Luke 10:18, it was clearly in reference to the passage of Old Testament Scripture in the 14th Chapter of Isaiah.  For quite some time, there has been an email floating around as well as a video that makes the claim that ‘heaven’ as spoken by Jesus is referring to ‘the heights’ and ‘lightning’ as spoken by Jesus is the Hebrew word BARAQ.  This is definitely a plausible definition for BOTH, which leads to the Hebrew word for ‘the heights’ which is ‘BAMAH’ (Strong’s H1116 and H1117) and ‘BARAQ’ (H1300).  

I was calculating the Greek gematria value of ‘Lightning [of] Heaven (the Heights) from Luke 10:18 as if it were a name, and found the gematria value to be 1651.  That number sounded familiar and as I looked through my database, to my surprise, it is the Greek standard value of ANTICHRIST! (1651). ‘Lightning [of] the Heights’ spoken in Hebrew would be baraq [of] bamah במהמברק! 

Αντιχριστοι =1651=Antichrist


Αστραπη ο Oυρανος = 1651= Lightning of Heaven (the heights -Greek) being interpreted as (Hebrew) baraq [of] bamah במהמברק (Lightning [of] the Heights).

The latter part of the proverb against the king (ruler) of Babylon, beginning in verse 12 calls the king of Babylon LUCIFER!  His ultimate fate is the pit.  This passage clearly is in reference to the antichrist, as the ruler is a man/possessed.  The Babylonians built the temple to the heights which brought about the division of language, which is the barrier that also hinders dialogue among nations, not to mention Biblical interpretations. 

Now I ask you, who is the present ruler of Babylon (Iraq)?  I know it has a president, prime minister or whatever, but specifically at this point in time the Commander-in-Chief of the United States holds the fate of that country in HIS POWER.  If he so chose to vacate our troops there, the country would implode and he would no longer be its ‘king’.  Barack Obama is the current ‘king of Babylon’.  He holds in common, with its executed dictator Saddam, the name ‘Hussein’ which has a Greek Ordinal 6-6 gematria value of 666!  BHO’s first and last names in Greek have a remaining value of 738, which is 6+66+666!  Altogether, first plus middle plus last has a value of 1404 (also the sea beast’s number – see 1404

Look at the verse number in which the king of Babylon first appears in this passage:  it is Isaiah 14:04!  The passage in which ‘the heights’ or ‘bamah’ appears is 14:14.  The English reduced value of OBAMA is 141404 is also 6 x 234 making BHO’s ordinal 1-1 value 234! 13x18=234 (Revelation 13:18) and Daniel 9:26. (9x26=234).

In conclusion: Jesus (speaking of Satan); Isaiah (speaking of Lucifer); matching Greek gematria (1651); Hebrew spoken (Baraq [of] Bamah); John (speaking of 666); and John again (speaking of the antichrist) chapter and verse values (1404 = BHO, 14 = Obama); the ‘Sea Beast’ has a number of 1404; all speak the NAME of the CURRENT ‘king of Babylon’ as the same person which is BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA!
