Current events may cause us to broaden our thinking about the ways in which God will fulfill His Word. We must be cautious, however, not to read prophecy through the lens of current events. Prophecy is interpreted by consistent, biblical principles.
Because Babylon’s roots are so ancient and reach beyond Christian times and regions, it seems to be a reasonable conclusion that "Great Babylon" will embrace forms of belief beyond Christendom. What that will mean and how it will be accomplished arouses our curiosity. Venturing into what has not been revealed is outside the realm of biblical interpretation. We can be certain that "Great Babylon" will exert her influence and control over "peoples and multitudes and nations and tongues" (Rev 17:15), which appears to embrace all the Gentile nations. God has not revealed the specifics of what "faiths" that will include during that future seven-year period.
