Is America ever mentioned in end time prophecy? I can’t out right say it is for a certain fact, however in the book of Revelation it talks in vivid symbology about something we call “Babylon the Great.”
Revelation 17:15-18 Revelation 16:1 Then I heard a loud voice from the temple saying to the seven angels, “Go, pour out the seven bowls of God’s wrath on the earth.” Then the angel said to me, “The waters you saw, where the prostitute sits, are peoples, multitudes, nations and languages. The beast and the ten horns you saw will hate the prostitute. They will bring her to ruin and leave her naked; they will eat her flesh and burn her with fire. For God has put it into their hearts to accomplish his purpose by agreeing to hand over to the beast their royal authority, until God’s words are fulfilled. The woman you saw is the great city that rules over the kings of the earth.”
The most interesting verse in this passage is the one saying “they will bring her to ruin” and “the woman you saw is the great city that rules over the kings of the earth” the United States itself at the present is the leading “super power” and all these nations, or most, around us look to us before they do anything. It goes on to elaborate about this “great city” who I’m not 100% sure who it is. However, things are beginning to sound all too familiar.
Revelation 18:1-3 After this I saw another angel coming down from heaven. He had great authority, and the earth was illuminated by his splendor. With a mighty voice he shouted:“‘Fallen! Fallen is Babylon the Great!’She has become a dwelling for demon and a haunt for every impure spirit,a haunt for every unclean bird,a haunt for every unclean and detestable animal. For all the nations have drunkthe maddening wine of her adulteries.The kings of the earth committed adultery with her, and the merchants of the earth grew rich from her excessive luxuries.”
Revelation 18:6-19 Give back to her as she has given; pay her back double for what she has done.Pour her a double portion from her own cup. Give her as much torment and griefas the glory and luxury she gave herself.In her heart she boasts,‘I sit enthroned as queen.I am not a widow; I will never mourn.’ Therefore in one day her plagues will overtake her:death, mourning and famine.She will be consumed by fire,for mighty is the Lord God who judges her. “When the kings of the earth who committed adultery with her and shared her luxury see the smoke of her burning, they will weep and mourn over her. Terrified at her torment, they will stand far off and cry:“‘Woe! Woe to you, great city,you mighty city of Babylon!In one hour your doom has come!’ “The merchants of the earth will weep and mourn over her because no one buys their cargoes anymore— cargoes of gold, silver, precious stones and pearls; fine linen, purple, silk and scarlet cloth; every sort of citron wood, and articles of every kind made of ivory, costly wood, bronze, iron and marble; cargoes of cinnamon and spice, of incense, myrrh and frankincense, of wine and olive oil, of fine flour and wheat; cattle and sheep; horses and carriages; and human beings sold as slaves. “They will say, ‘The fruit you longed for is gone from you. All your luxury and splendor have vanished, never to be recovered.’ The merchants who sold these things and gained their wealth from her will stand far off, terrified at her torment. They will weep and mourn and cry out:“‘Woe! Woe to you, great city,dressed in fine linen, purple and scarlet,and glittering with gold, precious stones and pearls! In one hour such great wealth has been brought to ruin!’“Every sea captain, and all who travel by ship, the sailors, and all who earn their living from the sea, will stand far off. When they see the smoke of her burning, they will exclaim, ‘Was there ever a city like this great city?’ They will throw dust on their heads, and with weeping and mourning cry out:“‘Woe! Woe to you, great city,where all who had ships on the seabecame rich through her wealth!In one hour she has been brought to ruin!’
Truth be told, would you not say, there are similarities? We embrace every godless idea like it’s a fact and we dare not say anymore “that’s wrong!” Cause after all “your truth is yours, and mine is mine” so in a way like a whore embraces every man she can, as a nation we embrace the godless ways of everyone who has come to us. If she can avoid it a woman for example won’t just allow every man to throw himself on her and do whatever they please to her, will she? However, America has raped by ever idea and every evil practice to avoid being labeled “intolerant”
These very people whom we embrace with “tolerance” are the very same people who say “death to America” or “long live Allah” but we mustn’t call them terrorists, after all, “we might upset them” and “we shouldn’t discriminate.”
This is not the only example, another is that Biblical marriage is under attack and the beautiful gift that God has given to a man and his wife has been redefined into whatever the hell people want it to mean. When people object to this and say they don’t believe in this, even respectfully and kindly, they are labelled “hateful,” “intolerant,”or a “homophobe,” and get dragged of to court and are sued, losing their business and livelihoods, and have no other choice but to file bankruptcy. For the record, before anyone tries to label me this, let me just tell you- I did not come up with this idea and I wouldn’t even bring it up if it were not already in scripture. I’m not hating anyone by telling them how I feel about something and I have not called anybody any names or said “you terrible piece of ….” No, I’m merely stating the Biblical view of such behavior as the Bible calls it and God will judge both Heterosexual and Homosexual offenses alike.
However, moving on from this I might transition to another huge problem of this nation that’s not to different then “Babylon The Great, ” she was filled with “excessive luxury” and she boasts “I will never mourn” Does not take much to realize how over indulgent we are as Americans are also this way and boastful about it. You can see it, people boast and brag about how powerful we are here, bragging about our #1 status and the power we have to “wipe everyone out,” but I must call into reason the fact that this country became great very fast and was establish quickly, and it’s because many of our founding fathers were men of faith and integrity. They were not perfect at all but many of them did trust God and acknowledge their success came from Him. How could such a small nation and just a group of pilgrims, as well as the founding fathers do so much to withstand the British forces which were obviously more powerful at the time and better equipped? I tell you, I do not think it was our superior armies or weapons.
Look at ancient Israel as good example: Deuteronomy 28:63-64 Just as it pleased the Lord to make you prosper and increase in number, so it will please him to ruin and destroy you. You will be uprooted from the land you are entering to possess. Then the Lord will scatter you among all nations, from one end of the earth to the other. There you will worship other gods—gods of wood and stone, which neither you nor your ancestors have known.
Did not Israel in time of prosperity and easy forsake God, who made them who they were, by adapting to and embracing the godless nations around them, therefore committing one idolatry after the other? If it can happen to them of all people, we can’t in our outrageous arrogance say “This won’t happen to us” and we brag about our army, weapons, nukes, and fighter jets!
Deuteronomy 32:30 How could one man chase a thousand,or two put ten thousand to flight,unless their Rock had sold them,unless the Lord had given them up?
Psalm 127:1 Unless the Lord builds the house,the builders labor in vain.Unless the Lord watches over the city,the guards stand watch in vain.
Psalm 33:17-19 A horse is a vain hope for deliverance;despite all its great strength it cannot save. But the eyes of the Lord are on those who fear him,on those whose hope is in his unfailing love, to deliver them from deathand keep them alive in famine.
Proverbs 21:30-31 There is no wisdom, no insight, no planthat can succeed against the Lord. The horse is made ready for the day of battle,but victory rests with the Lord.
Deuteronomy 32:39 “See now that I myself am he!There is no god besides me.I put to death and I bring to life,I have wounded and I will heal,and no one can deliver out of my hand.
Isaiah 43:13 Yes, and from ancient days I am he.No one can deliver out of my hand.When I act, who can reverse it?”
Basic message is, don’t get too cocky people. I honestly, hope nothing bad does happen here but it’s our choice, and individually we can choose whether or not we bring destruction on ourselves. Remember the Roman empire for the most part disintegrated from within itself.
