The US in Prophecy

 

Great Britain and the United States have clearly dominated the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries. Are they listed in Bible prophecy? Was Great Britain one of the “lost ten tribes” of Israel descended from one of the daughters of King Zedekiah? Was the prophet Jeremiah the link to the establishment of the United States and Britain?

 

We are on the edge of some upcoming wars that are in the pages of the Bible. Where does the US fit in? Is the United States the location of the Babylon of the End Times?


 

Upcoming Wars

In the End Times, the Bible tells us about a war involving the inner circle of nations surrounding Israel. The members are listed in Psalms 83. However the war is triggered by the attempt to wipe Israel off the map.

 

There is destined to be an Arab – Israeli war as per Psalm 83. An Arab confederacy has formed with a push to defeat Israel.

Iran made a point of declaring its solidarity with both Syria and Turkey in recent months, on the heels of joint Turkish-Syrian military exercises.

 

 

The Psalm 83 confederates:

  1. Tents of Edom (Palestinians and S. Jordanians)
  2. Ishmaelites (Saudis – Ishmael father of the Arabs)
  3. Moab (Palestinians and Central Jordanians)
  4. Hagrites (Hagarenes – Egyptians)
  5. Gebal (Hezbollah & N. Lebanese)
  6. Ammon (Palestinians and N. Jordanians)
  7. Amalek (Arabs of the Sinai area)
  8. Philistia (Hamas of the Gaza Strip)
  9. Tyre (Hezbollah and S. Lebanese)
  10. Assyria (Syria and N. Iraqis)

We see that Damascus gets destroyed “never to be inhabited again” in Isaiah 17.

 

 

Isaiah 17:1 The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap.

Will Syria start a conflict with Israel to divert attention from the Syrian unrest… Is this why Israel destroys Damascus?

 

This is followed by the Gog \ Magog war of Ezekiel 38 when Russia attacks Israel to take a new found wealth (Oil and Gas).

  1. The land of Magog (Russia – Rosh Chief Prince)
  2. Meshech and Tubal (Southern Russia – Scythians)
  3. Persia (Iran, Iraq, and Afghanistan)
  4. Ethiopia (Ethopia and Sudan)
  5. Libya (Libya)
  6. Gomer (Eastern Europe \ European Union)
  7. Togarmah (Turkey)

 

Some Bible scholars point to Ezekiel 39:6 as the location where the United States fits in the wars. Ezekiel 39:6 says that fire will fall on “those who inhabit the coastlands in safety.” This could point to the United States being under fire or nuclear attack at the same time Israel is attacked by Russia to take the Oil and Gas found off the coast.

Ezekiel 39:6 And I will send a fire on Magog, and among them that dwell carelessly in the isles: and they shall know that I am the LORD. 7So will I make my holy name known in the midst of my people Israel; and I will not let them pollute my holy name any more: and the heathen shall know that I am the LORD, the Holy One in Israel. 8Behold, it is come, and it is done, saith the Lord GOD; this is the day whereof I have spoken.

 

Many have speculated this show of force by God to destroy the Russian army is the event that promotes the rebuilding of the temple in Jerusalem. God comes in person to crush Russia and the Israelis witnesses the power of God and come back to him in worship.

It is altogether possible that the United States economically will not be able to help Israel because of a collapse of it’s economy. We know that a prophecy exists that speaks about the oil fields of Saudi Arabia being as burning pitch. What would this do to the already failing US economy?

The United States is Bankrupt. Oil is currently denominated in U.S. Dollars, and gives the dollar it’s strength, and makes it the world’s reserve currency. However China and Russia along with the IMF are pushing to get rid of the dollar as the reserve currency. If China and Japan suddenly dump their holdings of U.S. denominated assets or O.P.E.C suddenly decides to sell oil in a currencies, other than the dollar, the United States would become a Third World Nation overnight.The value of the dollar would plummet resulting in a total economic collapse of the United States. The United States is a house of cards economically.

The prophecy of the Oil Fields of Saudi Arabia burning would definitely also push the US economy into collapse and trigger the prophecies overnight:

Isaiah 34:5For my sword shall be bathed in heaven: behold, it shall come down upon Idumea, and upon the people of my curse, to judgment.

8For it is the day of the LORD’S vengeance, and the year of recompences for the controversy of Zion.

9And the streams thereof shall be turned into pitch, and the dust thereof into brimstone, and the land thereof shall become burning pitch.

10It shall not be quenched night nor day; the smoke thereof shall go up for ever: from generation to generation it shall lie waste; none shall pass through it for ever and ever.


Where is the United States in the End?

 

With the United States being the Worlds Superpower, it would seem we would be mentioned everywhere in the Bible.

In the Book of Daniel we see a lion which represents England with the wings of an eagle. The wings were plucked off the lion. America breaks free of English rule and the Lion joins in a future union of nations:


Daniel 7:3~8

3And four great beasts came up from the sea, diverse one from another. 4The first was like a lion, and had eagle’s wings: I beheld till the wings thereof were plucked, and it was lifted up from the earth, and made stand upon the feet as a man, and a man’s heart was given to it. 5And behold another beast, a second, like to a bear, and it raised up itself on one side, and it had three ribs in the mouth of it between the teeth of it: and they said thus unto it, Arise, devour much flesh. 6After this I beheld, and lo another, like a leopard, which had upon the back of it four wings of a fowl; the beast had also four heads; and dominion was given to it. 7After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns. 8I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things.


Most Bible scholars interpret the Lion as Babylon. Babylon, the city in Iraq will never be the greatest economic power of the world in the end times. So we must take a second look at this interpretation. We see later in Revelation the beasts are combined (EU European Union) and the eagle wings are no longer present. America is not a part of the European Union however England is a member:

 

 

Revelation 13:1~2

1And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. 2And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.

 

 

We do find that the Eagle is mentioned in Revelation as saving the woman (Israel) in the midst of the week while the 2 witnesses are on the Earth:

 

 

Revelation 12:13~14

13And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child. 14And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.

 

 

If the events of the end times are to come to pass, the United States must be in a position that we can’t respond to the attacks which are to come on Israel. However the verse in Revelation 12:13 seems to say that the symbol of the United States shields Israel for 3 1/2 years. This 3 1/2 years is worded the same as the other locations in the Bible that refer to Daniel’s 70th week.

 

 

Is the Eagle God’s devine help or the United States that shields the woman? The Eagle symbol is the link.


Does the US fight the Antichrist in the end? In the book of Daniel the Antichrist is troubled by a country from the North and a country from the East:

 

Does the newly found oil in Israel draw the attention of China from the East and the US from the North?

  


Mystery Babylon

Is the United States the MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH?

Revelation 17 and 18 describe a great city which rules over the kings of the Earth. Is this Rome or New York? New York is the home of the United Nations who rules over the other nations of the Earth. However New York and the United States do not fully match scripture. This city is destroyed when the wrath of God is poured out during the Great Tribulation period.

  


Revelation 17:18 And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.

Revelation 18 talks about the city of Babylon being destroyed and the merchants weeping and mourning over her destruction.

Revelation 18:8 Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her.

Revelation 18:9 And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning, 10Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come.

Revelation 18:15 The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing, 16And saying, Alas, alas, that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls! 17For in one hour so great riches is come to nought.

 

There are many people that link the United States with Mystery Babylon. The Internet has many published sites that try to make the link. The United States does not fully match scripture on several accounts. The United States never killed the Saints, Prophets and Apostles.

Even though the United States looks like the Worlds Super Power in this moment and hour, within one year an economic collapse would take that status away.

The study of Mystery Babylon is presented in the following article:


Mystery Babylon, who is it? – http://howlongolord.com/?p=357

 

 It breaks down in detail the link with scripture and the Daughter or Mystery Babylon of the Last Days.


 

Conclusion

The strongest link to the United States in scripture is the relation as the daughter of Tarshish. Many link Tarshish with the tin mining in England. In the time when Jesus was a boy, some relics hint that he traveled with his uncle Joseph of Arimathea to Tarshish to buy tin and rare metals. Early documents found in Britain refer to Joseph and his activities in tin mining. If Britain along with parts of Europe matches the Tarshish of the Bible, the daughter of Tarshish could be the United States.

 

 

In the End Times, a man will come to power over a unified multi-national government and seemingly lead the world into a time of peace and prosperity. This man is the false messiah (Antichrist). After a time of war and economic collapse, he will accomplish, at least for a season, what no other ruler has managed to accomplish – global unity, prosperity and peace. A new golden age will seem to flow over a large part of the Earth. He will come to power at the beginning of the tribulation which is described in the Book of Daniel as the 70th week and establish himself as a true world ruler. During the first half of Antichrist’s seven-year reign, the inhabitants of Earth will live in relative harmony and follow the Antichrist worshipping and praising his accomplishments. Wealth will be redistributed across the globe to everyone.

In the End Times some nations will not be controlled by this man and his World Government (EU\UN). In the book of Daniel we are told Jordon will not be under his control:

Daniel 11:41 He shall enter also into the glorious land, and many countries shall be overthrown: but these shall escape out of his hand, even Edom, and Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon.

 

In the book of Revelation we are told also that Israel will escape his hand on the wings of a great Eagle:

Revelation 12:14 And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.

 

In the book of Daniel we are told the false messiah will have trouble from the North and East – US and China?:

Daniel 11:44 But tidings out of the east and out of the north shall trouble him: therefore he shall go forth with great fury to destroy, and utterly to make away many.

 

We see that some countries survive during the tribulation and oppose the Antichrist. Are these countries Jordon, Israel, China and the United States of America?

If the events of the end times are to come to pass, the United States must be in a position that we can’t respond to the attacks which are to come on Israel. We are on the edge of some upcoming wars that the US is not mentioned in scripture.

    President Obama is getting the economy headed in the right direction. The economy is improving.

  2. Bywaternet says:

    You are completely ignoring several very important descriptions of the woman and the beast on which she sits:
    (Rev 17:5 RSV) and on her forehead was written a name of mystery: “Babylon the great, mother of harlots and of earth’s abominations.”
    (Rev 17:9 RSV) This calls for a mind with wisdom: the seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman is seated;
    (Rev 17:18 RSV) And the woman that you saw is the great city which has dominion over the kings of the earth.”
    The woman is a great city that sits on seven hills. Only one city on earth fits that description – Rome. Rome proudly boasts of its seven hills and has a name for each one. The woman is a harlot – an apostate church, or the bride of Christ having committed adultery with the world. So the only church that fits the whole description is the Church of Rome, whose colours are purple and scarlet, bedecked with jewels and drunk on the blood of true Christians, as described in v.4 and v.6. This church also takes upon itself the making and breaking of kings, claiming the authority of God to so do. Get over it guys, this chapter explains itself beautifully and has nothing to do with the USA. Is America so full of itself that it can’t possibly entertain the possibility that it will play no significant role in the fulfilment of these prophecies, except for possibly provisioning the “wings” on which Israel escapes?

    • Bill says:

      I don’t think the article is saying the US is Babylon. There are several cities on 7 hills. Istanbul Turkey is known as the city on 7 hills also. Some have even accounted Jerusalem as a city with 7 hills. However in the Time John wrote the book of Revelation, this was a popular code word for Rome.


    • Steve says:

      The problem is that these are not literal hills.  The scripture itself tells you that these hills are also 7 kings, it goes on to say 5 have fallen, 1 is, and the other is yet to come, but when he comes, he must continue a short time.  These are refering to world empires on which the spirit of Babylon (Babel) has sat.  The five that had fallen were Egypt, Babylon, Assyria, Medo Persia, and Greece.  The one that was at the time was Rome.  The one that is yet to come is what everyone is trying to figure out.

      • admin says:

        The Woman is a city Revelation 17:18 built on seven hills. Only one city has for more than 2000 years been known as the city on seven hills. That city is Rome. The entire area of Vatican State. The beast she is riding also refers to the 7 kings or kingdoms. The connection between mountains and kings must be deeper than the mere outward fact to which incidental allusion is made, that Rome is on seven hills. Traditional beliefs are that the seven kings should be understood as seven kingdoms. The five that have fallen are Egypt, Assyria, Neo-Babylonia, Persia, and Greece. The one that is, the sixth kingdom, is Rome. The seventh kingdom is a revived Roman empire (EU) and see the eighth kingdom as the kingdom of the Antichrist. You have to keep in mind that Rome also included the area of Turkey and the current Muslim countries.

  3. Joy says:

    I don’t agree with you Gabby. I think he’s terrible president.

  4. J says:

    I agree he is a terrible president. You might think Obama is actually try to bring the United States down. The real question is, “Who is he working for?” He also seems to want to hurt Israel with the 1967 border push.

  5. Mike says:

    The crash of the US economy along with the liberal government of Obama and the Democratic control of congress was needed to set up the events of the end times.

    Muslim Prophecy

    forbes magazine link

    “Is Barack Obama the ‘promised warrior’ coming to help the Hidden Imam of Shiite Muslims conquer the world?” asked columnist Amir Taheri in Forbes. “The question has made the rounds in Iran since last month, when a pro-government website published a Hadith (or tradition) from a Shiite text of the 17th century. The tradition comes from Bahar al-Anvar (meaning Oceans of Light) by Mullah Majlisi, a magnum opus in 132 volumes and the basis of modern Shiite Islam.

    “According to the tradition, Imam Ali Ibn Abi-Talib (the prophet’s cousin and son-in-law) prophesied that at the End of Times and just before the return of the Mahdi, the Ultimate Saviour, a ‘tall black man will assume the reins of government in the West.’ Commanding ‘the strongest army on earth,’ the new ruler in the West will carry ‘a clear sign’ from the third imam, whose name was Hussein Ibn Ali. The tradition concludes: ‘Shiites should have no doubt that he is with us.’”

    The Khomeinist establishment in Iran sees Obama’s rise as another sign of the West’s decline and the triumph of Islam and the return of the Mahdi.

  6. Manuel Fauni says:

    Please read Revelation 13:11-18. Who or what is represented by that second beast that comes out of the land and not from the seas, as mentioned in Rev. 13:11? This verse describes an earthly power that came out of nowhere and not from many nations (seas), having two horns like a lamb, in contrast to fierce beasts as elsewhere described, meaning to say, a country or nation that would start out as an unassuming non-world power like Babylon, Persia, Greece and Rome; then would “speak like a dragon,” or would assume later on in modern times, as a world power. Many Bible interpreters pinpoint this meek power coming out of a non-populated place and later on becoming a world power as the United States of America. Link this verse with Rev. 12:16 – “But the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and drank up the river which the dragon poured out of his mouth.” The “earth” helped the woman (church) is the place where the persecuted peoples of Europe found its home in the uninhabited (sparsely though) where they found a haven in the practice of their religion — this place is none other than North America, which later on became the Unites States of America. 

    As you continue to read verses 12 to 18, note the present and future verb tenses, which would represent the actions of this second beast, the U.S.A. in the end times.

    Verse 12 — The U.S. will take on the persecutor role of the first beast, Roman church, in a supportive way, of the reinvigorated religious power which suffered  a “deadly wound” (deprived of its dark ages power over civil powers, in 1898 when the pope was captured and imprisoned by the French General Berthier as commanded by Napoleon), that would be “healed” or make a comeback with the visible support of the United States.

    Verse 13 — The United States of America, once the citadel of democracy and religious freedom, and bastion of Protestantism (starting with the Pilgrim Fathers, etc.), will adopt measures that will mimic what the Roman church did in the Middle Ages (unity of church and state) and will spawn Protestant churches that will mimic Pentecost where the Holy Spirit descended on the disciples in form of fire — with evangelical fury and frenzy(makes fire come down from heaven).

    Verses 14-15 —  ”And he deceives those who dwell on the earth because of the signs which it was given him to perform in the presence of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who *had the wound of the sword and has come to life. And it was given to him to give breath to the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast would even speak and cause as many as do not worship the image of the beast to be killed.”

    — The United States will urge the world to “make an image” to the beast — Protestantism will become the “image” or will mirror what the Roman church did during the dark ages by uniting church and state, or will remove the barriers separating church and state, by urging the passage of  legislation enforcing its religious dogma and in the end-time would declare who do not conform in “worshiping the image” (See Daniel 3) to be persecuted as heretics and killed.

    Verses 16-17 —  And he causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and the slaves, to be given a mark on their right hand or on their forehead, and he provides that no one will be able to buy or to sell, except the one who has the mark, either the name of the beast or the number of his name.
    – The United States in its role of supporting the first beast or Roman church, will urge the whole world’s inhabitants to receive the “mark of the beast” or its signature dogma (making another day holy by its claimed power or authority) that is the counterfeit of God’s mark or seal, which is the seventh-day Sabbath. That mark would be the enforcement of keeping Sunday as a holy day opposite what God already made holy and sanctified (see Exodus 20:8-11 & Genesis 2:1-3). 

    Verse 18 —  Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for the number is that of a man; and his number is six hundred and sixty-six.
    – 7 or 777 is the perfect number alluded to God — 7 literal days of creation, 7 trumpets, 7 seals, etc.
    666 is short of 777, meaning falling short or counterfeit — read: Rev. 21:17 — Then he measured its wall:one hundred and forty-four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, an angel.
    – So that number of a “man” must be the number of an angel who came short of what he wanted to be, to be like God, “”But you said in your heart, ‘I will ascend to heaven; I will raise my throne above the stars of God, And I will sit on the mount of assembly In the recesses of the north.” Isaiah 14:13. Then read Revelation 12:7-9 – 7And there was war in heaven, Michael and his angels waging war with the dragon. The dragon and his angels waged war,
    8and they were not strong enough, and there was no longer a place found for them in heaven.
    9And the great dragon was thrown down, the serpent of old who is called the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him.
    – That angel is none other Lucifer who became Satan, who attempted to take the place of God in rebellion, wanting the power, but not the character of God. He came short of the glory of God and was thrown down from heaven to this earth. Since then, Satan, the devil, is always attempting to thwart the fulfillment of God’s will upon the earth, and became the real power behind the earthly powers in persecuting God’s people, in his scheme that if he would make God’s people suffer, that would make God suffer too.
