Just briefly, for the moment, my thoughts are that babylon is obviously a physical an spiritual place.
BOTH ARE ROME in this dispensation WHICH IS THE CURRENT UNIVERSAL SYSTEM wherin the war is being fought in heaven and on earth..
The Roman system, the laws we live still under today and the hijacking of the truth of the scriptures by the ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH is the manifestation of all that is filthy and unrighteous on earth.
SPIRITUALLY ROME AND PHYSICALLY ROME..
