There is all this talk about the Silk Road as a continuous trade route from China to the middle east, Russia and Europe. It looks like Babylon rising where the Silk Road really began according to Livius.org:
At the beginning of the sixth century BCE, the trade route started in Babylon, from where it passed through Opis/Ctesiphon (Baghdad) and Ecbatana (Hamadân) and modern Sâveh
The Silk Road is the modern name for the trade route between the Mediterranean Sea and China. The first users of the road must have lived in the first half of the first millennium BCE. Its most famous traveler lived more than twelve hundred years later: Marco Polo of Venice (1254-1324). (end of posting)
So what is this Silk Road all about? Well, someone stated on Quora what they knew about the Silk. It was very surprising since this trade route was suppose to be all about textiles and goods. Here is the post on Quora which I excluded the guy's name...
In april or may 2013, I had a friend who told me about the silk road and how great it was. He said he bought some cocaine and powdered MDMA on there. My advice to him at the time was to avoid that site completely because either it will be shut down and all the information would go to the FBI or else it was actually run by the FBI as a sting operation. Either way all the information would go to them.
Once when I visited him he showed me the site, there were people selling research chemicals, precursor chemicals, common chemicals, labware, pipes, syringes, books, and pretty much anything you could think of that is virtually impossible to get elseware.
He offered to set me up with an account to on the site so I could sell lab equipment at a 400% profit.I considered it for a few weeks but decided against it since it would be virtually impossible for me to honestly claim I had no idea that any equipment I sold was for legitimate purposes. I knew the site would be shut down and all the sellers would be caught, even if they are selling legal items they could still be charged with conspiracy if they knew those items would be used for illegal purposes.
Being a law-abiding citizen, I personally avoided the site completely. The end of this post from Quora.
Very shocking I'd say since we believe everyone jumping on board has an industrious smile with dollar signs for teeth. Are they going to clean this trade route up or has it always been so nefarious?
I read that multi-multi-millionaire's and billionaire's are cutting out mountains to build underground luxury housing in case Armageddon hits. It is suppose to be like a city of it's own. They forgot that God can see through rocks and one day the wicked will cry for the rocks to fall on them.
Revelation 6:16 Revelation 6:16 (KJV)16 And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:
Luke 23:30 Then they shall begin to say to the mountains; Fall on us, and to the hills; cover us.
Which city can be defined as Babylon who purchases everything known to man and makes nations rich?
Now a days many do not have to be carried off to Babylon. They volunteer to be part of her system and want to feast in her delicacies.
Zechariah 2:7 Deliver thyself, O Zion, that dwellest with the daughter of Babylon.
