Dewey, there is not enough time to rebuild literal Babylon. Excellent study below.
America has turned her back on God.
A Shaking in the Land: A Look at America in these Last Days - David L Lamon - email@example.com
Gaining the Right Perspective
After reading this one short
clip of facts please explain to me how it is the U.S. is not the leader
of the one world government prophesied in the bible for the end time.
All these entities have huge international investments. Every economy
in the world is linked to the U.S. economy and the dollar is the
world’s reserve currency. Where does the entire world look for
leadership today? Yes there are those prominent prophecy experts today
that say America is not in bible prophecy, which I contend is the most
absurd statement they could make considering no other nation in the
history of the world has dominated every phase of living standards both
physical and spiritual for the whole planet for a long time as America.
The tremendous pressure to produce and the failure in ability to do so
we witness our current president backtracking from this responsibility
as fast as he can by calling on others to take the lead, which I
contend is another sign of the times. Let me state emphatically here I
am not so naïve that I don’t realize this is in part his marching
orders from the powers that be to put the U.N. in charge of the whole
world’s affairs witnessed by the fact he didn’t go to the congress for
permission to impose the “No Fly Zone” over Libya but to the U.N.
Security Council. But the fact does remain America is in decline and
that too is by design, therefore she is in no position especially
economically to fulfill the necessity of total and complete leadership
in a world turned upside down. Jeremiah 50:43 the king of Babylon hath
heard the report of them, and his hands waxed feeble: anguish took hold
of him, and pangs as of a woman in travail. He by saying such things as
America is not a Christian nation to gain appeal to others mostly of
Muslim Arab origin. None of us realize in the fullest the task at hand
and just how it has almost reached the point of impossibility or no
return. In short, America is bankrupt and I know of no one including
myself that wants to accept this fact but it won’t go away by remaining
in a state of denial.
"I guess we goofed!’ were,
in essence, the words of admission heard at the Fed and Treasury. "Now,
instead of just a bailout for Lehman, what we’re really going to need
is the Mother of All Bailouts — for the entire financial system." The
U.S. government promptly complied, delivering precisely what they asked
for — a $700-billion Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP), rushed
through Congress and signed into law by President Bush in record time.
In addition, the U.S.
government loaned, invested, or committed $300 billion to nationalize
the world’s two largest mortgage companies, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac;
over $42 billion for the Big Three auto manufacturers; $29 billion for
Bear Stearns, $150 billion for AIG, and $350 billion for Citigroup;
$300 billion for the Federal Housing Administration Rescue Bill to
refinance bad mortgages; $87 billion to pay back JPMorgan Chase for bad
Lehman Brothers trades; $200 billion in loans to banks under the
Federal Reserve’s Term Auction Facility (TAF); $50 billion to support
short-term corporate IOUs held by money market mutual funds; $500
billion to rescue various credit markets; $620 billion for industrial
nations, including the Bank of Canada, Bank of England, Bank of Japan,
National Bank of Denmark, European Central Bank, Bank of Norway,
Reserve Bank of Australia, Bank of Sweden, and Swiss National Bank;
$120 billion in aid for emerging markets, including the central banks
of Brazil, Mexico, South Korea, and Singapore; trillions to guarantee
the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation’s (FDIC’s) new, expanded bank
deposit insurance coverage from $100,000 to $250,000; plus trillions
more for other sweeping guarantees. Grand total: Over $14 trillion.
After reading the above take
a look at these specific prophecies below and determine for yourself if
the shoe fits as it applies to America: These specific prophecies as
you will see fit no other nation on planet earth. Hint! One of the keys
to understanding this is the reference to “daughter of Babylon” meaning
future. Also keep in mind just as the Scythians of old are the Russians
today so it is with America a nation built by those of the old Roman
Empire and has extended itself to a nation of mixed people or cultures.
Examine these scriptures in earnest but first shake off every tradition
of man that has beset you for the very word’s sake [Mark 4:17]. The
only reason I am giving you the benefit of this extensive research is
for you to see the times are desperate, time is in short supply and the
most important thing a man can do for himself and his family is to get
their spiritual house in order. This must be the number one priority in
each of our lives at this time. Just as the apostle Peter once told two
people so it is with us today as concerning our standard of living in
the natural world. Acts 8:20 But Peter said unto him, Thy money perish
with thee, because thou hast thought that the gift of God may be
purchased with money. Mark 8:36 for what shall it profit a man, if he
shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? James 5:5 ye have
lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wanton; ye have nourished your
hearts, as in a day of slaughter. In the end those that give 3/4 of
their time devoted to personal gain, pleasure and less than 10% to the
spiritual will not profit them because they neglected the most
important thing, which is the eternal destiny of their soul and that of
their family with the man being charged with responsibility of the
spiritual leader of his household.
It is important for the
saint of God that is prayed up, keeps him/herself humble in the
presence of the Lord and his/her fellow man to keep the following in
2 Thessalonians 2:1-3 Now we
beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by
our gathering together unto him, That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or
be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us,
as that the day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any
means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away
first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition. As we are
witnessing with great alarm the church’s decline in America and the
world was foretold but we are told this to reveal the time in which we
live so that day doesn’t come upon us unaware [Luke 21:34]. To be more
precise we are living in that time between the imminent return of
Christ for the church and the tribulation period. In other words, Luke
21:24 and they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led
away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of
the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled. 2
Thessalonians 2:15 Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the
traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle.
This does not conclude the end of the matter but the beginning and
there will be a revival of the spirit of God in the heart of man. The
question for us all is will it be prior to the rapture of the church or
during the tribulation period when man will give his life for his
confession of faith. I say, don’t procrastinate but sell out now while
there is time to avoid the horrors the tribulation period will bring
about. Find you a church that preaches the apostolic doctrine of the
apostles for it is still in effect and never died. This church will
preach a man must be born again of the water and the spirit and through
repentance the remission of sins. [John 3:5, Acts 2:38] Matthew 6:33
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all
these things shall be added unto you.
A number of chapters in the
Bible picture the U.S.A. No other nation throughout history can so
convincingly fulfill all of the requirements of the prophesied texts.
Immediately, someone mentally argues, “Well, the United States is not
mentioned in the Bible.” True. However, it is equally true that America
must be included in the texts prophesying that “all nations: will
suffer judgment. Micah 5:15 states, I will execute vengeance in anger
and fury upon the heathen [all of them],. Such as they have not heard.
Again, Ezekiel 39:21 declares” all the heathen shall see my judgment."
Although the United States is not specifically named, logical deduction
makes us know that we, too, shall suffer.
The main reason why America
is not found in the Scriptures is that the nation was not in existence
when the prophecies were written. Therefore, we must move ahead to the
study of characteristics and traits involving nations to see which
country fulfills the prophetical predictions. The United States seems
to be the political Babylon of the hour. God’s Word mentions three
Babylons: a city (see Genesis 1 1), a church (see Revelation 17), and a
country (see Revela¬tion 18). Don’t confuse the three by combining the
context of these chapters. The context of each text identifies “who’s
who” to the careful student. Isaiah, Jeremiah, and John graphically
describe this nation. Who is it? Let’s begin with Isaiah.
Isaiah’s Depiction of America
"Woe to the land shadowing
with wings, which is beyond the rivers of Ethiopia: that sendeth
ambassadors by the sea, even in vessels of bulrushes upon the waters,
saying, Go, ye swift messengers, to a nation scattered and peeled, to a
people terrible from their beginning hitherto; a nation meted out and
trodden down, whose land the rivers have spoiled!" (Isaiah 18:1,2) The
nation described in this text is in dire difficulty with God because
the opening word is judgmental. God says, “Woe,” and the term always
1. This nation has the
insignia of wings, similar to our national emblem, the bald eagle, with
extended wings. People in other parts of the world recognize the symbol
2. This nation is a land beyond the sea. Israel is always the focal
point in Bible prophecy. So the message of warning is directed to a far
country beyond Ethiopia and across the sea from Israel. This
designation eliminates Europe, Asia, and Africa. Instead it is directed
to a nation with outstretched wings across the sea from Israel and
3. This nation is scattered and peeled. Scattered means widely spread out or having great land areas.
This nation is measured. This certainly describes our beloved country
with its counties, cities, and states. One is amazed as he crosses
America by air and sees the staked out acres tens of thousands of miles
completely measured and marked.
5. This nation is a land whose rivers are spoiled. Ecological experts
vouch that this significant prophecy has occurred in our waterways.
Isaiah simply tells us that dreadful judgment will come upon a nation
with outstretched wings, beyond the seas of Israel; a nation with vast
measured land areas and polluted waters. Water tables and aquifers are
polluted with drugs and chemical waste as recent news story points out.
Revelation 18:23 tells us the world’s population will be drugged. And
the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice
of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in
thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy
sorceries were all nations deceived. Sorceries here refers to drug use
or being drugged. As mentioned above, we now learn drugs are in the
water tables and aquifiers. As to whether this is done by design or not
I can’t tell but the fact remains they are there. There can be no doubt
that altering one’s mind through drugs makes it easier to deceive and
that is what this verse says will happen.
The Prophet Isaiah speaks of
the burden of Babylon (Isaiah 13:1). The judgment is upon the entire
world and occurs at a time when the stars of heaven and constellations
fail to give their light. "The stars of heaven and the constellations
thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his
going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine (Isaiah
13:10)." This is futuristic because Jesus mentioned the same signs in
Matthew 24:29 and pinpointed the time. He said, immediately after the
tribulation of those days [the conclusion of the seven-year tribulation
period] shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her
light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the
heavens shall be shaken." This did not happen to ancient Babylon, but
it will occur in future Babylon during the Tribulation Hour. Is it any
wonder, then, that Babylon is burdened as the weapons of his [God’s]
indignation, to destroy the whole land (Isaiah 13:5)." Isaiah predicts
judgment upon the land whose emblem contains "outstretched wings
(eagle)," the land located beyond the seas of Israel with large land
areas completely measured, and whose waters are polluted. In fact, he
opens the chapter with a “woe,” and “woe” which is always associated
with judgment. This “woe” is administered "afore the harvest, when the
bud is perfect, and the sour grape is ripening in the flower, he shall
both cut off the sprigs with pruning hooks, and take away and cut down
the branches (Isaiah 18:5)." In grape producing nations, the pruning of
grape vines is normally severe. It is seldom administered before a
harvest. Pruning is done at the conclusion of a season to better
prepare the vines for the coming year. It is an established fact that
cutting or pruning grapes before harvest is damaging to the
productivity of the vine. Nevertheless, the text’s judgmental
pronouncements upon Babylon take place before the harvest at a time
when Babylon is abundantly productive. Then, at that moment, she is cut
The Prophet Jeremiah also
pinpoints America’s characteristics with even greater de¬tail: I will
make a full end of all nations (Jeremiah 30:11). It is evident that
unprecedented judg¬ment shall sweep the world. However, the prophet
singles out a specific nation for judgment. Who is this “Babylon”
mentioned by the Holy Ghost in Jeremiah 50 and 51?
1. This is a country
destroyed by an assembly of nations from the north. This was not
fulfilled when the Medes and Persians from the east attacked Babylon.
Neither could these two small nations fulfill the latter-day prophecy
concerning an assembly of great nations moving against Babylon from the
north. Thus, the prophecy, presently unfulfilled, must be futuristic.
2. This is a nation whose mother is sorely confounded (see Jeremiah
50:12). Again we see that ancient Babylon had no mother, only a father
and founder named Nimrod. Prophetical and futuristic Babylon has a
mother who exists at the same time as Israel, but in a confounded,
deteriorated condition. Surely Britain is the modern-day mother if
America is in view. The recent shrinking of the English pound to the
lowest point in history confirms that “mama” is confounded and
troubled. In 1897 the first World Zionist Congress expressed their
desire to establish (in the ancient land of Israel) a Homeland for the
Jews, recognized by other world powers. In 1917 Great Britain also
expressed that they would like to establish a Homeland for the Jews in
the ancient land of Israel then known as Palestine. In 1922 the League
of Nations gave Great Britain a mandate to establish a Jewish Homeland
in Palestine, but because of Oil and Arab influence Great Britain
reneged on the mandate. To this day England continues to pay a great
price for its treatment of the Jews. Great Britain has gone down the
tube morally, spiritually, economically and politically. They failed in
their moral and Spiritual obligation to Israel, because of politics and
After the Second World War the British gave about 80 percent of the
land known as Palestine, to the Arabs rewarding them for their help
during the wars. That portion became known as Jordan not an ancient
land, but a modern young nation. Most of the citizens of Jordan are
Palestinians, making Jordan a predominantly "Palestinian State".
As the fighting between Arabs and Jews increased, the British again
showed their anti-Jewish feelings by failing to evacuate a port for
Jewish use in bringing in refugees and supplies, as specified by the
United Nations timetable. While Britain prevented the Jews from
re-enforcing it's strength to withstand the Arab attacks, they allowed
the Arabs to be reinforced by detachments of irregulars, trained and
armed in the surrounding Arab nations. Another little known fact: Prior
to the Second World War Hitler increased his persecution of the Jews.
Many of them, fearing what was coming, were on the move trying to get
into other countries refused entry they headed for Palestine. The Arabs
objected to the Jews coming to Palestine. And Great Britain wanting the
Arabs on their side in the event of another war with Germany produced a
"White paper" limiting the immigration of Jews to 1500 a month. This
figure was a 'drop in the bucket' compared to the number of Jews who
were fleeing Hitler's 'final solution'.
3. This nation is the youngest among the great world powers for she is
the “hindermost of the nations” or the last to become internationally
prominent (see Jeremiah 50:12). America celebrated its bicentennial
July 4th, 1976. However, two hundred years of history make our country
only a teenager among the nations of the earth, comparatively speaking.
4. This country is an end-time nation, for it exists when Israel is
back in her land. Jeremiah 50:19 declare, I will bring Israel again to
his habitation. This began in 1948 when the Jews of the world returned
to their homeland, hoisted their flag the six-pointed Star of David and
named the country Israel. What tremendous proof that God had an end
time Babylon in mind when Jeremiah wrote the prophecies 25 centuries
5. This land, according to Jeremiah, "hath been proud against the Lord
(Jeremiah 50:29)." This situation exists presently in America. The
Supreme Court ruled Bible reading and prayer out of the educational
system, and constantly votes on the side of hell bent schemes. Judges
set criminals free as soon as police apprehend them. Filthiness also
floods the land as pornography, obscenity, and depravity hold sway.
Surely haughtiness (arrogantly proud) against God reigns in modern
6. This is a nation of "mingled people." Have we not been called the
“melting pot” of the world? Millions have come from every nation and
tongue to the land of milk and honey. (see Jeremiah 50:37)
This is a nation of wealth, for Babylon hath been a golden cup in the
Lord’s hand. In fact, the nations who have tasted of her delicacies are
mad (Jeremiah 51:7). Even now, the “Third World” nations, whose income
levels produce mass starvation, have tasted of America’s dainties, via
movies and television, and are becoming insane in their quest to
partake of its reality. Who but America could fulfill their dreams?
Babylon could, for she is abundant in treasures (Jeremiah 51:13).
8. This land "dwellest upon many waters (Jeremiah 51:13).” This could
not be ancient Babylon, a desert country, but it must be a nation
similar to ours, bordered on each side by the world’s two largest
oceans and having the third longest river system in the world the
mighty Mississippi/Missouri; some 4,200 miles long.
9. The people of this land, like ancient Babylon, try to "mount up to
heaven (Jeremiah 51:53)." We have already arrived on the moon and sent
spaceships to Mars. We have become the preeminent leader in space
technology. Certainly the type is cast, the sign fulfilled, and the
future calamitous. God sent confusion of tongues upon ancient Babylon
because they tried to reach heaven without God and failed. So will
10.Next to the outstretched wings of an eagle, America’s second most
treasured symbol of freedom is the “Lady of Freedom,” the Statue of
Liberty. Isaiah and Jeremiah both refer to this end-time political
Babylon as “Lady of Kingdoms” (Isaiah 47:5) and “Daughter of Babylon.”
The Prophet Jeremiah also
presents a picture of this destructive way. The gruesome truths
portrayed are not the ramblings of a senile prophet, but the very words
of Jehovah God. God tells the prophet, "I have put my words in thy
mouth (Jeremiah 1:9)." In fact, God dictated the message through
Jeremiah: "Write thee all the words that I have spoken unto thee in a
book (Jeremiah 30:2)." Since God is in command of the situation,
speaking the very words written, the prophecies are worthy of
consideration. America calls itself the lone superpower in the world
and is generally recognized as such in the rest of the world. Our
leaders constantly remind the world that as America’s economy goes, so
goes the rest of the worlds and it is true at this point and time in
history. Therefore, hear now this, thou that are given to pleasures,
that dwellest securely, that sayest in thine heart, I am, and none else
beside me. (Jeremiah 47:8) In "Jeremiah 50:9, an assembly of great
nations" (superpowers) is described as coming up against Babylon from
the North Country. Russia is north of the U.S.A. The advancing enemies’
arrows are shot with reliable accuracy. Russia’s latest missiles strike
within 100 meters of target.
This could picture an
onslaught of missiles, which Russia has perfected. The sneak attack,
which catches Babylon unaware, cuts asunder and breaks the nation
described as the "hammer of the earth (vs. 23)." Does a hammer
symbolize America? What does a hammer do? A hammer shapes and creates.
Blacksmiths have been famous for their creation with hammers, and
America has created and shaped foreign policy for years. Now, this
sneak attack against the hammer of the earth is devastating because the
archers (missile loaders) are called together against Babylon to knock
her from her haughty pedestal and punish her for rejecting the Lord
(see vs. 29). All this will take place through a nuclear holocaust:
"And the most proud shall stumble and fall, and none shall raise him
up: and I will kindle a fire [atomic warfare] in his cities, and it
shall devour all round about him (vs. 32)." Furthermore, a sword is
upon their horses, and upon their chariots, and upon all the mingled
people that are in the midst of her (vs. 37). Then, as God overthrew
Sodom and Gomorrah and the neighboring cities thereof [for
homosexuality] so shall no man abide there, neither shall any son of
man dwell therein. The reason? Behold, a people shall come from the
north, and a great nation (vss. 40,4 1). They [the Russians] shall hold
the bow and lance: they are cruel, and will not show mercy: their voice
shall roar like the sea (vs. 42). At the noise of the taking of Babylon
the earth is moved, and the cry is heard among the nations (vs. 46).
Chapter 51 continues, "Babylon is suddenly fallen and destroyed: howl
for her; take balm for her pain (vs. 8)."
One of the reasons for this
nation’s fall lies in the fact that draft dodgers have resisted the
call to serve. Yes, "The mighty men of Babylon have forborne to fight,
they have remained in their holds: their might hath failed; they became
as women (vs. 30)." Another reason lies in the fact that terrorist
saboteurs cause internal havoc in the nation. Verse 32 declares, "the
passages are stopped...and the men of war [military leaders] are
affrighted [scared to death]." During the Kennedy administration
America adopted a policy of war, which states it is a no win situation
or “mutually assured destruction.” In our War College officers are
taught this doctrine. “Passages” may mean “communication lines” and
“stopped” is self-explanatory. The traitorous Judases will seize the
lines of communication and stop all television, telegraph, and
telephone releases. Radio, too, will be cut off. New York City’s past
power failures give one a descriptive picture of what follows in the
wake of sabotage. America is ripe for such terrorism. China and Russia
are jointly working with technology that they claim will be able to
disrupt America’s communication systems. Almost everything in America
is controlled via computers, so this is the area they are working on.
The term for this dismantling of our communication system is known as
“Cyber War”. Take heed, all these viruses and of late the “Red Worm”
are leading up to this event.
Note: Some say the end-time
Babylon is Jerusalem, but this cannot be because the nation of Israel
and Jerusalem will never be destroyed again although they will suffer
greatly. And it is true Jerusalem will be divided for a time as
Zechariah points out. The prophesies of the end time Babylon just do
not fit Jerusalem at all.
Note: It would be a foolish
mistake to forget the fact that Russia remains the number one sponsor
of training for terrorist nations. It is worth noting here that because
Russia has long historical ties to the Middle East and is the chief
sponsor of terrorism, these missiles don’t all have to come from
Russia. Iran is currently working on nuclear missile technology with
Russia’s help and Pakistan and India already have nukes. Saudi Arabia,
Syria, Iraq, and Yemen are seeking this capability. You will find the
countries behind this will have very close ties to Russia's military
and intelligence agencies. Also, consider the prophecy of the last form
of gentile world power (revived Roman Empire). The current real world
situation demands that for this last form of Gentile world power to be
ushered in something has to happen to America and Russia. In addition
to this prophetic warning of America, Russia’s end is exposed in the
38th and 39th chapters of the book of Ezekiel. What better scenario
could be presented to illustrate how the EU or revived Roman Empire
will be ushered in to dominate the world?
William P. Hoar,
contributing editor for the Review of the News, informs America that
Capitol Hill is loaded with Soviet KGB agents. Their manpower has
increased by 400 percent in recent months. They go as far as monitoring
White House communications with electronic devices located on the roof
of the Soviet Embassy in Washington. The Soviet Embassy doubles as a
KGB headquarters from which the Reds operate on Capitol Hill. God give
our leaders some brains and brawn to see it and brawn to destroy it! To
cite further evidence concerning the rise of terrorism within our
borders, the head of the FBI warns, “Communist countries are stepping
up efforts to steal U.S. industrial secrets and Americans should be on
the alert against such spying.” The Red agents “aim to recruit our
scientific personnel, steal our research and development technology,
and develop information on the economic policies of the United States.”
The FBI director pleads with Americans “to exercise patriotism and give
America support and cooperation in reporting and stopping such
saboteurs within our shores.” Despite all that “patriots” try to do, it
appears that a hopeless situation confronts America. Judgment is coming
upon all nations (Jeremiah 30:11), and “Babylon” cannot escape this
infamous international conflict. Do you think with all the high-tech
weaponry we hear our leaders brag about will protect us. Think again!
Though she builds a spectacular space program and mounts up to heaven,
and though she should fortify the height of her strength [by creating
utterly fantastic, atomic-laden space vehicles] (Jeremiah 51:53), still
the broad walls of Babylon shall be utterly broken, and her high gates
shall be burned with fire (Jeremiah 5 1:58)
John the Revelator’s Description
John, in the Book of
Revelation, also gives us insight into modem Babylon. Chapter 17 deals
with religious Babylon located upon the Seven Hills of Rome (see verse
9), while chapter 18 deals with political Babylon, which probably is
the United States. What does John depict?
1. "A nation through whom
the merchants of the earth [have] waxed rich through the abundance of
her delicacies [or luxuries] (Revelation 18:3)." Take a look at the
headlines, for in them you will find other countries economic success
is based on what we do. Check out this headline for example: CNN April
19, 2001, Markets throughout Asia charged higher on Thursday, bolstered
by a surprise rate cut by the U.S. Federal Reserve.
2. A nation "laden with sins" (see verse 5).
A nation, "which hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously" (verse
7). That’s us! We spend 173 billion dollars annually for food, alcohol,
tobacco, recreation, and gambling.
John, the New Testament
expositor of Babylonian destruction, pictures the scene like this: "God
is angry at Babylon whose sins have a reached unto heaven and remembers
her iniquities (Revelation 18:5)." Babylon must reap what she has sown.
Thus, "her plagues come in one day (vs. 8) and consist of the earth
[world lead¬ers and statesmen], who have committed ungodly acts with
her and lived deliciously off her unlimited wealth, bewail her, and
lament over her, when they see the smoke of her burning (vs. 9)." They
cry, "Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city, for in one
hour is thy judgment come. And the merchants of the earth [the world’s
stockbrokers, bankers and salesmen] shall weep and mourn over her; for
no man buyeth their merchandise any more: The merchandise of gold, and
silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen (vss.
10-12)." Nuclear blasts end the “covetous” grasping for goods in one
hour. Yes, "in one hour so great riches is come to naught [for
nothingness] (vs. 17)." No wonder the Savior said, "Lay up for
yourselves treasures in heaven (Matthew 6:20)." Here one’s accumulated
wealth through giving abides forever in the form of souls won to
Christ. Thank God, we Christians will not be present to cry with
earth’s multitudes when they cast dust on their heads, and [cry],
"weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas, that great city. For in one
hour is she made desolate" (vs. 19).
The present enjoyment will
not last forever. America’s decapitation and destruction may come in
jet-speed fashion. Only by repenting of our sins as a nation and having
an old fashioned, Holy Ghost revival, will we be able to prolong this
prophecy. We will become the brutalized, battered, and beaten Babylon
of the following texts. God says, For, lo, I will raise and cause to
come up against Babylon an assembly of great nations from the north
country: and they shall set themselves in array against her (Jeremiah
50:9)." Revelation 18 pictures the kings of the earth, who have lived
scandalously in the arms of Babylon, "weeping as her disintegrating
smoke ascends heavenward." They are standing afar off and crying,
"Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour
is thy judgment come (Revelation 18:10). They continue in verses
"Alas, alas that great city,
that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked
with gold, and precious stones, and pearls! For in one hour so great
riches is come to naught. And every shipmaster, and all the company in
ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off, and
cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like
unto this great city! And they cast dust on their heads, and cried,
weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas, that great city, wherein were
made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness!
for in one hour is she made desolate." China and India are the fastest
growing economies in the world today because of America sending
technology, service and manufacturing capabilities to them, which
forced some European countries and others to follow suit to compete.
Today a devastating atomic attack could, in one hour’s time, obliterate
everything a nation took two centuries to build. If God has America in
mind and it certainly looks that way then what?
Note: The one world
government planners feel at this time in our history that all we need
now is the right major crisis and the nation will accept the New World
Order as stated by David Rockefeller--founder and honorary chairman,
Council of the Americas. Chairman emeritus, Council on Foreign
Relations. founder and honorary Chairman, Trilateral Commission. He
said we are on the verge of a global transformation.
A possible scenario that
could bring this about would be a tumultuous terrorist attack at
strategic areas of the country. For example, one target that should be
considered because of a past terrorist attack is the World Trade
Center, which is a major economic center or where all the military
planning takes place, the Pentagon. Other possible attacks could occur
at our SAC (strategic air command) bases, energy producing centers of
America such as Houston and possibly an attack via Cyber War to shut
down our communications systems (computers etc.)
It is important to
understand one of the reasons America is moving toward fascism today is
because it has lost its constitutional moorings. One of the first goals
of tyranny is to create fear in the population, fear so paralyzing that
the public will accept any measure to allay it. Make the threat onerous
enough and the people will relinquish everything. The government is
always presenting us with a crisis, whether it is health care,
terrorism, crime, environmental or whatever they dream up. We the
people are left with two choices, be consumed with the crisis or let
the government solve the threat of the day by limiting, constraining,
or removing freedoms.
Remember the old Aesop fable
about the horse tormented by a boar. Exasperated, Horse asked Man for
help. “Certainly,” said Man, “I shall help you, but first you must let
me saddle you up.” Agreeing to the terms, Horse found his problem
quickly resolved, but found too, the price extracted was weighty:
Horse’s freedom. Of course, the moral of this story applies directly to
what we see happening in America today, which is a frightened and
tormented people that is willing to trade away its fundamental freedoms.
Communism plans the eventual
overthrow of America and its Western allies. The plans perpetrated over
sixty years ago are still moving according to schedule. At that time,
Lenin, who imported communism into Russia by murder, said, “First, we
will take Eastern Europe, then the masses of Asia, then we will
encircle the United States, the last bastion of capitalism. We will not
have to attack. She will fall into our hands like overripe fruit.”
Listen to what Mikhail Gorbachev himself said to the Politburo in
November 1987: “Gentlemen, comrades, do not be concerned about all you
hear about glasnost and perestroika and democracy in the coming years.
These are primarily for outward consumption. There will be no
significant internal change within the Soviet Union other than cosmetic
purposes. Our purpose is to disarm the Americans and let them fall
asleep.” By the way, this reprobate is running all over the U.S. giving
speeches convincing people, mainly the elite that we need to be willing
to surrender our sovereignty in the name of what is best for the whole
world. One of his main tools of fear is the environment. He is not
interested in whether or not the scientific facts back his claims. The
plan is now in its final stages. The British historian Arnold Toynbee
stated that of the 21 civilizations throughout world history, nineteen
fell through atheism, alcoholism, materialism, and socialism. America’s
decline along these same lines may bring sudden destruction if there is
not a movement toward God within our nation soon!
In a study done by Dixie Lee
Ray, he noted that throughout the history of great democratic nations,
they endured about 200 years before their fall from power and
subsequent disintegration. In every case there appears to be a
clear-cut sequence of stages:
• From bondage to spiritual faith.
• From faith to great courage.
• From courage to liberty.
• From liberty to abundance.
• >From abundance to complacency.
• From complacency to selfishness.
• From selfishness to apathy.
• From apathy to dependency.
• And from dependency back again into bondage.
Do you see the United States
somewhere in this sequence? Has our great country been so compromised
and corrupted that we’re now willing to march in lock step to our doom
in the footsteps of other fallen nations? A British historian Alexander
Tyler once said, “ A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of
government; they will only exist until the people find that they can
vote money for themselves from the treasury and until the politicians
find that they can distribute that money in order to buy votes and
perpetuate themselves in power. Hence, democracies always collapse over
weak fiscal policy to be followed by a dictatorship. “A country which
leads the world in homosexuality, promiscuity, pornography, divorce,
abortion, violent crime, drug usage, alcoholism, and child abuse: a
country which embraces its enemies (China through trade) while turning
its back on its friends (Taiwan); and a country which turns its back on
its spiritual, Christ-centered heritage while believing itself to still
be the greatest is ready for a major fall,” says Don McAlvany. It
happened to Rome, Babylon, Persia, Assyria, Greece, and now America
(us) is on the verge of allowing it to happen again.
Is decline already visible
in America? Definitely! We have allowed atheists, agnostics, skeptics,
and weirdoes to set our standards. Ph.D.s told our college students
that there was no creation by an Almighty God. Instead, a lot of
“monkey business” took place. These responsible, irreligious God
deniers never found the “missing link” of their evolutionary hypothesis
and never scientifically proved their allegations. Nevertheless, an
entire generation of “brainwashed” graduates listened and accepted
their unverified theories. From this beginning, the schools eventually
banned the “creation theory,” the Bible, and then, God himself. This
degenerative process led to immorality, impropriety, and immobility as
they experimented and died from drinks and drugs. I can prove without a
doubt that we didn’t come from a monkey. The “brainwashed” victims whom
instructors with evolutionary “monkey” tendencies indoctrinated now do
what monkeys would never do, kill their babies! Today every conceivable
act of vice and violence is the practice of the hour.
Today Americans spend
approximately 31 billion dollars per year for alcoholic beverages. This
amounts to 3 1/2 million dollars per hour! The disease has reached
epidemic proportions, and child alcoholism is part of the menace. The
federal government’s National Institute on Alcoholic Abuse and
Alcoholism states, “By the time students reach the twelfth grade, 50
percent drink regularly and 25 percent have been drunk.” Millions more
are drug addicts. Both sins destroy a nation and send unrepentant
addicts and drunkards to hell.
Homosexuality and Adultery: a sign that Judgment is Near
The days of Noah and Lot
(Luke 17:26-29 KJV) And as
it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son
of Man. They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given
in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood
came, and destroyed them all.
Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot, they did eat, they drank,
they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; but the same day
that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven,
and destroyed them all. Referencing the aforementioned sentence reveals
that this means they were in a time of much prosperity. Business was
booming, things economically couldn't have been better. In David
Wilkerson's book America's Last Call, he points out a certain
established pattern. Whenever nations turned away from God, he sent
them warnings through prophets. If the people didn't respond, God often
sent violent storms and drastic weather changes and plagues to wake
them up. And if that didn't work, God sent them one final message: he
inundated them with prosperity. It was a last, great mercy call.
In most cases, the people despised God's blessings and goodness,
turning to indulgence. When that happened, judgment quickly followed.
This same pattern can be traced to the rise and fall of all great
kingdoms. Paul writes: despisest thou the riches of his goodness and
forbearance and longsuffering; not knowing that the goodness of God
leadeth thee to repentance, but later thy hardness and impenitent heart
treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and
revelation of the righteous judgment of God; who render to every man
according to his deeds. (Romans 2:4-6). America has just experienced
the longest period of economic prosperity in the history of our nation,
yet we have not humbled ourselves. We are in effect storing up God's
wrath against us just as they did in the days of Noe and Sodom and
Gomorrah. The people in Noah's day and Sodom and Gomorrah did not know
that prosperity was God's last call to them. And suddenly overnight,
the good times ended. Calamity struck in broad daylight and within
twenty-four hours the whole society lay in ruins. Please notice the
prophecy of John in Revelation 18:10, "for in one hour is thy judgment
come." I think one can see the pattern is followed as in the days of
Noah and Lot.
People's attitude to
homosexuality has allowed it to flourish in our society in spite of the
fact that the AIDS disease is the primary culprit result of practicing
homosexuals. Corporations and some states across this nation now
provide same sex benefits, which in effect is one of the causes in the
increase of insurance premiums because of the humongous expense in
treating AIDS. Today as in the days of Noe and Sodom and Gomorrah, this
abominable lifestyle is accepted by our society as a normal practice as
well as adultery.
The days of Lot was marked by Homosexuality
(Jude 1:6 KJV) And the
angels, which kept not their first estate, but left their own
habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto
the judgment of the great day. This is making reference to the
scriptural depiction of Genesis 6. 2 and Jude 7 of the fallen angels
that came down and married the daughter's of men. This is what is meant
by the term going after strange flesh in this passage. Even as Sodom
and Gomorrah, and the cities about them in like manner giving
themselves over to fornication and going after strange flesh are set
forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire. The very
next verse, the days of Lot, were marked by homosexual fornication and
that its citizens were of such reprobate minds that they would go after
It is very important that
one understands some overlooked facts concerning homosexuality. In
Sodom it was old and young. (Genesis 19:4 KJV) But before they lay
down, the men of the city, even the men of Sodom, compassed the house
round about, both old and young, all the people from every quarter:
Notice that it was old and young who went to Lot’s house. Some say the
young here does not refer to children but they are wrong. The word
young is derived from: na'ar, nah'-ar; (concr.) a boy (as active), from
the age of infancy to adolescence. Since there were children, we must
assume that two things went on. The first being heterosexual
intercourse, to produce for themselves children out of their own greed.
The second is the children were taught homosexuality. This is
commonplace among lesbians today. This is backed up in that they must
have been "raised" this way by their mothers and taught that the
lifestyle was "acceptable". Peter in describing these types, that being
false teachers say’s: (2nd Peter 2:14-15 KJV) having eyes full of
adultery, and that cannot cease from sin: beguiling unstable souls: an
heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children:
which have forsaken the right way and are gone astray, following the
way of Balaam the son of Bosor who loved the wages of unrighteousness.
It was legal. (Gen 19:5 KJV) And they called unto Lot, and said unto
him, where are the men, which came in to thee this night? Bring them
out unto us, that we may know them. It was both old and young that
wanted to have intercourse with the angels. They wanted to sodomize
them in "public". When they could not have them, they threatened to do
the same to Lot, who was a judge in the city. (Gen 19:9 KJV) And they
said, stand back. And they said again, this one fellow came in to
sojourn, and he will need be a judge: now will we deal worse with thee,
than with them. And they pressed sore upon the man, even Lot, and came
near to break the door. I wonder how far are we from this today?
Concerning drugs, the Bible
declares that the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and
murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all
liars, shall have their part in the lake, which burneth with fire and
brimstone: which is the second death (Revelation 21:8). The term
“sorcerer” is the English transliteration from the Greek, Pharmakeia.
It means “pharmacy” or “drug store.” The original idea is to use drugs
for a “high,” or “lift,” or a “kick”, not for medication! God plainly
states that those who use drugs promiscuously are in the “lake of fire.”
defilement extends into the sexual area as well. Sexual experimentation
is now occurring at 13 and 14 years of age. The pressure from the peer
group and the media to be sexually active is enormous. The United
States reached a milestone of social delinquency in 1999 as
illegitimate births reached 33 percent of total births. For the first
time in the nation’s history, unmarried women most of who are in no
position, financial or otherwise, to raise children by themselves
effectively account for one of every three births. Given all that has
been learned about the immense educational, criminal and moral
disadvantages that afflict the majority of children born out of
wedlock, this latest milestone is nothing short of a social
catastrophe. The birth rate among teenagers, is nearly 400,000 teenage
girls give birth each year to out-of-wedlock children, whom they are in
no condition to raise, the social costs to America as well as to the
children themselves, both mother and child will continue to be extreme.
Subtle “brainwashing” by the media is having its effect. It contributes
to sexual intercourse on the part of 35 percent of the girls in the
nation who are 15-19 years of age, according to Patricia McCormack in a
United Press International release. Surely this makes 1,300,000 sinners
in our nation, who live together without a marriage license, feel
comfortable in their adulterous condition. After all, if the heroes of
the silver screen can do it and make it look decent why not try it! The
problem is that God is still against any act of sex that takes place
outside the bonds of holy matrimony. If a person does not have a
marriage license and plays sex games, he will end up in a devil’s hell.
God’s Holy Commandment in Exodus 20:14 is: Thou shalt not commit
adultery. What makes one think he can flaunt God’s rules and end up in
eternal bliss? God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ
(Romans 2:16). Then our brazen disregard of God’s laws will be judged.
God’s law declares, Marriage is honorable in all, and the bed undefiled
[in marriage]: but whoremongers and adulterers [the swingers and the
one-night stands], God will judge (Hebrews 13:4). Can America sink any
lower in the mud of depravity? Wicked, satanically controlled purveyors
of smut, the publishers and sellers of pornography are the guilty
culprits behind this filth. However, the educational system of the
United States also shares some of the blame for the deteriorated
debacle in which the nation finds itself. Recently, a 13-year-old girl
came home in a distraught condition because a sex education film
entitled, “All About Sex,” had been shown in her home economics class.
It showed a nude couple in the actual act! America needs an
investigation into the morals of its teaching staff! Many of them bring
their barnyard manners into the classroom and present them as
rationally acceptable. But a corrupt mind, educated or uneducated, is
still rotten to the core. God says, their mind and conscience is
defiled (Titus 1:15). This deterioration of standards has led to an
abortion rate of one million per year. Where will it end? The next
step, undoubtedly, is related to Nazism and Communism. Both maniacal
organizations murdered millions. Hitler believed in genocide and
practiced it. Babies and adults with physical blemishes were
liquidated. The communists murdered millions more than the Nazis for
political reasons. Likewise, our educated “morons” are now advocating
“mercy killing” as the next step in America’s defiling decline.
A recent winner of the Nobel
Prize has advocated that newborn babies should not be considered alive
until they are two days old and have been certified as healthy by
medical examiners. He also advocates compulsory death for all at age
It is plain to see that
callousness is sweeping the United States. Kill the unborn, kill the
aged, and kill anyone who stands in the way of another’s selfish
aspirations. This callousness produces sadistic and violent murderers.
In past history, rare instances of torture and mutilation occurred.
Today, it occurs frequently. Our president recently agreed to allow
funding for embryonic research justifying it because these embryos have
already been destroyed. My question is this, “what happens if they find
great success with this embryonic research? Will it justify the
slaughter of life?” Of course it will! Our president made a bad
decision by opening Pandora’s Box of justifiable homicide. God and the
Bible are for capital punishment. Vicious killers such as these should
pay with their lives! Exodus 21:12 says, He that smiteth a man, so that
he die, shall be surely put to death. Again, He that killeth any man
shall surely be put to death (Leviticus 24:17). Many of today’s
criminals escape earthly judgment because of lenient judges. Still,
eternal judgment will come because murderers shall have their part in
the lake, which burneth with fire and brimstone (Revelation 2 1:8).
This same callousness also produces merciless robbers, looters, and
plunderers. A few lights go out in a city and the “animals” stalk their
victims. They cry, “We are hungry,” but most of them look like stuffed
sausages. Many of these thieves had previously robbed, raped, and
plundered when the lights were on and scores more had top paying jobs.
Their “Uncle Sam owed it to me” attitude prevailed and crime reigned.
Our dependency from cradle to grave on governmental funds will
undoubtedly produce a socialistically controlled nation. This same
situation destroyed civilization after civilization, as creeping
socialism-grasped power. How different from God’s instructions! He
states through Paul, If any would not work, neither should he eat. For
we hear that there are some, which walk among you disorderly, working
not at all, but are busybodies [or troublemakers]. Now them that are
such we command and exhort by our Lord Jesus Christ, that with
quietness they work, and eat their own bread. (2 Thessalonians
3:10-12). Laziness and idleness produce robbers, rapists, looters,
troublemakers, and murderers who have nothing to do but daydream and
carry out their “fairy tale” hallucinations.
America’s Ministerial Defilement
To further aggravate the
situation, we have doctrinally defiled clergymen who mock everything
that is right. They think they know more than God. He wrote the Bible
and they knock its precepts, standards, and teachings. For instance, a
London Associated Press release stated, “The divinity of Jesus is being
challenged by a panel of British Protestant theologians who say He
should be regarded as a great teacher, not a supernatural miracle
worker.” In a new book, entitled The Myth of God Incarnate, the seven
theologians argue that Jesus was not God in human form but “a man
approved by God” for a special role. The authors state that Jesus did
not claim to be divine, but was promoted to divinity by early
Christians who were still under pagan influences. What blasphemy! This
kind of dedication to the destruction of God and His Word is common.
Our pulpits are full of ordained hypocrites who spouted fundamental
Bible principles at their ministerial induction services and then slid
back into religious anarchy as the years progressed. The Apostle Peter
warned against such false prophets: There shall be false teachers among
you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the
Lord that bought them (2 Peter 2:1).
America’s Coming Judgment
America is on the road to
judgment. God’s Word speaks of an hour when all nations shall be
involved in a horrendous international conflict, undoubtedly World War
III. Isaiah gives witness to this fact. He speaks of a war in which
Babylon will be involved: This is the purpose that is purposed upon the
whole earth: and this is the hand that is stretched out upon all the
nations (Isaiah 14:26). In Jeremiah 30:11, God says: "I will make a
full end of all nations whither I have scattered thee [Israel]." This
would of necessity include America because five million scattered
Israelites live in the United States. Our end is predicted in this
text. No nation is exempt including the United States from the
universal judgment to come: "I will execute vengeance in anger and fury
upon the heathen; such as they have not heard! (Micah 5:15). "I will
destroy the strength of the kingdoms of the heathen (Haggai 2:22)." He
shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles (Isaiah 42:1). The lion is
come up from his thicket, and the destroyer of the [nations] is on his
way (Jeremiah 4:7)." America is included in this horrendous catastrophe
that will envelope the globe. We, along with other nations, have sinned
terribly and must pay the price. The Bible says, Righteousness exalteth
a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people (Proverbs 14:34). Again,
The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget
God (Psalm 9:17). Soon nuclear and neutron blasts shall engulf the
world as sin is judged. When it happens, the human race will have
brought the devastating destruction upon itself, for they that plow
iniquity, and sow wickedness, reap the same (Job 4:8). Thus far, we
have shown that America is included in the “all nations” that will
experience destruction during earth’s bloodiest hour. However, there is
even stronger evidence to suggest that our nation is especially
mentioned and pinpointed for oblivion. Evidence for this is found in
the Babylonian prophecies, which speak of, a nation under judgment.
Jeremiah states "Babylon is a desolation among the nations (see 50:23),
that she has cities of her own (see 51:43), and that she also has a
king or leader ruling over her (see 50:18)." This certainly could not
depict ancient Babylon, which was a city, not a nation. Also, the Medes
destroyed old Babylon and Persians from the East, while future Babylon
will be destroyed by northern nations. God says, "I will raise and
cause to come up against Babylon an assembly of great nations from the
north country [Russia] (Jeremiah 50:9)." Russia is not only the
northern invader of Israel (Ezekiel 38:15 and 39:2), but the northern
aggressor of Babylon as well. In addition, Russia is north of America!
Then, too, old Babylon was a wicked idolatrous city whereas the final
political Babylon is called the “heritage” of the Lord who faces
judgment because of her back¬sliding (see Jeremiah 50:11). Finally, old
Babylon was not a city of mingled races, but end time Babylon is a
nation of integrated “mingled people” (see Jeremiah 50:37). This
Babylon is singled out for devastation.
Questions and Answers about America’s Future
Q: Is America’s present and future predicted in the Bible?
Yes. After much study one cannot come to any other conclusion.
Q: What are these prophecies and where are they located?
are mentioned in the writings of Isaiah, Jeremiah, and John. Let’s
begin with Isaiah. The prophet depicts a latter-day nation that
resembles modern America. He says, "Woe" to the land shadowing with
wings, which is beyond the rivers of Ethiopia: that sendeth ambassadors
by the sea, even in vessels of bulrushes upon the waters, saying, Go,
ye swift messengers, to a nation scattered and peeled, to a people
terrible from their beginning hitherto; a nation meted out and trodden
down, whose land the rivers have spoiled! (Isaiah 18:1,2)." From this
we deduce the following:
1. America’s emblem, a bald eagle with outstretched wings, fulfills the prophet’s description of a "land shadowed with wings."
2. The nation is beyond the sea from Israel.
3. This nation is scattered and peeled, meaning spread out and cultured.
4. It is measured or staked out, as well. (States, counties, cities; all bound by boundaries)
5. This nation also has spoiled or polluted waterways that affect the land.
Q: What about the description of Babylon itself? Where is it mentioned in God’s Word?
Babylon is mentioned in the writings of Jeremiah and John. It was God
Almighty who gave the prophecies through His servants. God spoke and
man wrote. That is why God says in Jeremiah 30:2, Write thee all the
words that I have spoken unto thee in a book. This statement shows that
the predictions are not the ramblings of men, but statements from
Jehovah God himself. In the New Testament the apostle Peter backs this
up. In [2nd Peter 1:21] Peter tells us “for the prophecy came not at
any time by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were
moved by the Holy Ghost.” To deny prophecy would force a Christian to
deny their Christian existence because the Apostle Paul tells us in
[Ephesians 2:19,20] “Now, therefore, ye are no more strangers and
sojourners, but fellow citizens with the saints, and of the household
of God; and are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets,
Jesus Christ himself being the chief cornerstone.”
Q: What does Jeremiah state?
chapters 50 and 51 of his book, Jeremiah presents conclusive evidence
that a “latter-day” Babylon shall come into existence far different
from, and superior to, ancient Babylon. Modern America seems to be the
fulfillment of these predictions because:
1. It is a nation of mingled people (see Jeremiah 50:37). America has
intermingled and interracial inhabitants and is referred to as the
“melting pot of the world”.
This is a nation whose “mother shall be sore confounded” (see Jeremiah
50:12), coexisting with “mother” at the hour of its decline. Ancient
Babylon does not fit the bill since a father Nimrod founded it.
However, America’s mother is England who presently is confounded,
confused, and near collapse, financially. This nation no longer is
considered a superpower and soon mother and daugh¬ter shall both be
3. According to the prophet, this country dwellest upon many waters
(see Jeremiah 51:13). This typifies America, bordered on each side by
the world’s two largest oceans and possessing the longest river system
on the globe the mighty Mississippi/Missouri. Surely ancient Babylon,
composed of barren deserts, was not in view when Jeremiah wrote such
4. This nation’s wealth plagues the nations of earth to the point of
insane jealousy, for Jeremiah 51:7 declares, Babylon hath been a golden
cup in the Lord’s hand...therefore the nations are mad.
This country’s space exploits are so utterly fantastic that it tries to
mount up to heaven (Jeremiah 51:53). America’s Echo 1, Echo 2, the
Telstar satellites’ voyages to the moon, and unmanned space flights to
Mars are significant in the light of Jeremiah’s declarations.
6. Babylon will exist when Israel is back in its land. America is only
200 years old, and the newborn babe Israel is a child. The new land of
Israel was established in 1948, meaning that the prophecies could only
coexist since that hour. Who but America can fulfill the requirements
mentioned to this point and coexist with Israel?
Q. Does the Apostle John have anything add?
John, in the Book of Revelation, pictures two Babylon’s. One is
portrayed as a world religion, geographically located on seven hills,
undoubtedly the Seven Hills of Rome (see Revelation 17:9). The other
Babylon is an internationally respected nation (see Revelation 18).
John describes the nation in the following terms:
1. The merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies (Revelation 18:3).
2. It is laden with sins (Revelation 18:5).
She hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously (Revelation 18:7).
Sadly, this nation’s superabundance of material goods produced idleness
Q. The Apostle John
mentions this nation’s overabundance of wickedness. What is now
happening in America relating to this “latter-day” prophecy?
has never been in such a state of degradation and hopelessness. Truly
America is loaded with iniquity. The pollution inundating our land
1. Drunkenness or “alcoholism.” Ten million inebriates drink themselves
into insensibility on a continual basis, while millions more spend
billions on booze annually.
2. Drug addiction, which mars and scars another ten million.
3. Tobacco, which pollutes both lungs and land to the tune of ten billion dollars per year.
Gambling which robs needy millions through governmentally controlled
lotteries and Mafia dominated casinos to the amount of 60 billion
dollars each year.
5. Prostitution and pimping which spreads disease and shame to nine million Americans every twelve months.
Homosexuality, which seeks to boast about its perverted members. In
anger, they desire to come out of the closet. Well, the closet is a
good place to practice sex. If it is good enough for the married in the
privacy of the closet, why should homosexuals receive special
privileges to proclaim their perversity? God says, It is a shame even
to speak of those things which are done of them in secret (Ephesians
7. Smut peddlers spreading sexual filth via magazine racks also cover
the nation. Their satanically inspired garbage is found everywhere,
including the corner grocery store. Christians should rise up in arms,
boycott the devil’s hangouts loaded with soul destroying, adulterous
materials, and patronize the shops of decent Americans. Since Jesus
said that the lust of the eye amounted to adultery (see Matthew 5:28),
then why fraternize such soul damning dealers who bait the young into a
life of lustful slavery and eternal hell?
8. Immoral lepers also plague the nation. As a result, millions are
carrying illegitimate babies. Thousands of victims are 11 to 13 years
of age. It appears that high school sex education courses have
stimulated rather than educated the young. Sex sin, however, is reaping
its reward. Presently nine million people with venereal disease have
reaped the reward of running sores from eyes, ears, mouth, genitals,
and other moisture producing areas of the body.
9. Abortion, the murder of “unwanted babies,” is also affecting one
million women annually. These so-called cultured but barbaric sinners
think nothing of having their little bundles from God hacked to pieces
and flushed. Never mind that God says, Thou shalt not kill (Exodus
20:13). Sinners have taken the matter into their own hands, but
remember that God holds the final trump card the Judgment (see
10. “Mercy Killers” are also on the ascendancy in America. They are
progressive abortionists who have become hardened to killing and now
wish to include the “mommies and daddies” along with the “babies.” The
honor thy father and thy mother in God’s Commandments (Exodus 20:12)
interferes with their fun. The responsibility is too great. So the old
folks must go.
11. Murderers stalk the country. Fifty thousand are savagely
slaughtered within the nation annually. The human animals that stalk,
torture, brutalize, and then slaughter their victims, use hatchets,
knives, and guns. Then they decapitate and dismember the victims and
finally burn and bury the remains.
12. Robbers and looters also rear their ugly faces, destroying,
plundering, and pillaging other people’s lifetime accumulations. They
call this “fair play” or equalizing the inequities of life.
Q: Can a nation continue under such sinful circumstances?
indefinitely! The Bible says, Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin
is a reproach to any people (Proverbs 14:34). Sin produces disaster for
individuals and nations. This is why Psalm 9:17 declares, the wicked
shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God. Job 4:8
states, they that plow iniquity, and sow wickedness, reap the same.
Q: Is judgment imminent for our beloved nation?
is no doubt about it? Isaiah describes the judgment of the “latter
days” as being administered upon all nations including America. A
person does not have to agree with the interpretation of Babylon to
know that America, as a nation, is part of the coming holocaust
administered against all nations. It then must be included in such
texts as Jeremiah 30:11: 1 make a full end of all nations. I will
execute vengeance in anger and fury upon the heathen, such as they have
not heard (Micah 5:15). [God] shall bring forth judgment to the
Gentiles (Isaiah 42:1), and the destroyer of the Gentiles is on his way
(Jeremiah 4:7). No doubt about it America is part of the “all nations”
package marked for destruction.
Q: Are there any specific judgments administered against Babylon, already identified as America?
a sneak attack, similar to Pearl Harbor, is predicted upon Babylon in
Jeremiah 50:24. God says,” I have laid a snare for thee, and thou art
also taken, 0 Babylon, and thou wast not aware." John, in Revelation

other than Russia! All her blasphemous negotiations around the detente
doctrine add up to lying rhetoric. Her communistic leaders have never
known the meaning of truth or honesty and the future will prove it!
Jeremiah 50:9 predicts that an assembly of great nations (superpowers)
will come up against Israel from the north. This is the same northern
bear that marches on Israel (Ezekiel 38:15). Actually, Russia is north
of both America and Israel. It is interesting to note that neither the
United States nor the Soviet Union will win. Both military giants will

sneak nuclear attack against the United States, crippling her, and then
move against Israel where God Almighty will smash this godless
communistic monstrosity into oblivion, leaving only one sixth of her

that both nations will fall, Christ will return, and world peace will

Tribulation Hour prior to His return to earth. He said, immediately
after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the
moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven,
and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken. The sneak attack, then,
is definitely a final Tribulation occurrence. Luke further admonishes
us “and when these things begin to come to pass then look up, and lift
up your heads; for your redemption draweth near.”
