Sea View

Jer 51:42  The sea has come up on Babylon; she is covered with its tumultuous waves. 

My guess is that this refers to all the cities of the earth that are located by the sea:-

Here are just some of them:-

Guangzhou, China
New York and Newark, U.S.
Kolkata, India
Shanghai, China
Tianjin, China
Tokyo, Japan
Alexandria, Egypt
Hong Kong, China
Bangkok, Thailand
Ningbo, China
Miami, Florida, U.S
New Orleans, Louisiana, U.S.
Osaka-Kobe, Japan
Mumbai, India
Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Rotterdam, The Netherlands
Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
Nagoya, Japan
Qingdao, China

According to the United Nations, by 2050 more than 6 billion people are expected to live in cities.  Over half of the world's largest cities are ports - say no more.

There are over 130 port cities around the world at risk!

This is only the beginning of this prophecy. Selah (pause for thought).
