Just a Thought

I was thinking a couple of months back about the prophecies in the Book of Revalation.

In it it tells about the Whore of Babylon and the trials and tribulations of the people of Earth. Well, I figured that maybe the sacking of Baghdad in 1258 by the leader of the Mongols, Hulagu Khan, may have been a key step in the prophecy.

Those of the Christian faith were tested by the expansion of the Mongols and the Turks. The sack of Baghdad could have been the part of the prophecy concerning Babylon. Plagues recently had ravaged Europe and Asia (Black Death, anyone), and it appeared that life as we knew it was over.

And also, the Battle of Ayn Jalut in 1260 was a battle, but not an actual battle. The Mongol forces were defeated before Hulagu was able to gather all of his forces....
Ayn Jalut is not too far removed from... Megiddo, also known as Armegeddon. The actual battle of Armegeddon was not to take place, but the preparations were supposed to be carried out....

Just a thought.
Comment if you have one.
