"When trying to interpret Biblical prophesies, timing really is everything. Prophetic studies are complicated and delicate and should be treated with great caution. Isaiah 21 tells of the fall of Babylon and decrees of God made against Edom and Arabia. The word Babylon means “gate of the gods” or “city of confusion.” Unfortunately, there is a lot of confusion surrounding the city of Babylon. Interestingly, it is one of the two most
mentioned cities in the Bible with 274 references. The top spot is taken by Jerusalem, mentioned around 815 times. The issue with Babylon is that there is the ancient city and empire that was overtaken by the Persians, an event that was also prophesied by Isaiah, and then there is the future Babylon that the Bible shows as a wicked enemy of God. So, the question then becomes who, or what, or how should we see this future Babylon? The main gist is that at the end of times evil will have grown to an ultimate state of confusion, as typified by Babylon. The Bible says, like all evil, it will fall.
