Revelation 19 – The Marriage Supper of the Lamb & Is America Babylon? Part 2 of 2

If you read part one and part two below you’ll have both sides of the coin, you can decide what you choose to believe. As yesterday, I still stand undecided because there is no point in deciding.  Yet, if I had to decide I would go with this guy because most of what he says in the below article comes from the Bible.

While yesterday’s article was nothing but assumptions built on scripture and world events. No fact is offered.

Yet, I’m not saying that America cannot be Babylon because the Bible does not tell us much about the end time. It does not promote or deny the question.  The entire world is going downhill and if America isn’t in first place they are picking up speed.

On a similar note, politics isn’t really my cup of tea, but I do have a side, so tomorrow we’ll look at…

Revelation 19
The Marriage Supper of the Lamb

If there is one star-studded event of all the ages that transcends all others, it must be the “Marriage Supper of the Lamb.”
The very heart of the Father in creating Adam and Eve and commanding them to multiply was out of a family passion.

He had a family of angels that filled His eternal city with praise, but He also wanted a human family that His Son may be the Bridegroom.

Nothing in His eternity is a surprise to Him. We were chosen from the foundation of the world to bring great joy to His fatherly heart.

It is fitting that the Bible ends in His New Jerusalem, a special city for a special people.

It is the conclusion of His revelations and shows the eternal joys as the Father enjoys His family, both angelic and glorified flesh.

This world is nothing but a sideshow, while the kingdom of God is in preparation to be revealed.

The fallen prince, Satan, has had his time of rebellion while the world makes their choice of whom to serve.

Wickedness grows for its final harvest of sorrows, while righteousness climbs the stairs of grace to its triumph.

The hour of finality is so close that the sense of majesty is in the air.

1 And after these things I heard a great voice of much people in heaven, saying, Alleluia; Salvation, and glory, and honor, and power, unto the Lord our God:

“Alleluia” – occurs four times in vv. 1-6 but nowhere else in the New Testament. It is derived from two Hebrew words meaning “Praise the LORD.”

2 For true and righteous are his Judgments: for he hath Judged the great whore, which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and hath avenged the blood of his servants at her hand.

3 And again they said, Alleluia. And her smoke rose up for ever and ever.

4 And the four and twenty elders and the four beasts fell down and worshiped God that sat on the throne, saying, Amen; Alleluia.

5 And a voice came out of the throne, saying, Praise our God, all ye his servants, and ye that fear him, both small and great.

6 And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth.

7 Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honor to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready.

“Marriage of the Lamb” – the imagery of a wedding to express the intimate relationship between God and His people has its roots in the prophetic literature of the Old Testament (e.g., Is 54:5-7; Hos 2:19). Cf. the New Testament usage (Matt 22:2-14; Eph 5:32).

The fact that this marriage takes place in heaven implies that the church has been raptured previously.

8 And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.

9 And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.

10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellow servant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.

11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth Judge and make war.

“White horse” – probably not the white horse of 6:2. The context here indicates that the rider is Christ returning as Warrior-Messiah-King.

12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.

“Name written” – a secret name whose meaning is veiled from all created beings.

13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.

Rapture watchers, are you perpetually ready for the marriage supper of the lamb after glorious rapture?
The heavenly banquet table is ready!
Don’t be absent at the marriage supper of the lamb event in heavenly new Jerusalem.
Be perpetually rapture ready!

 “Vesture dipt in blood” – either the blood of the enemy shed in conflict or the blood of Christ shed to atone for sin.

14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.

“Armies…in heaven” – their robes of white indicate this to be the redeemed church – the bride of Christ – returning in triumph with her heavenly Bridegroom.

15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.

16 And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.

17 And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God;

“Supper of the great God” – a grim contrast to the “marriage supper” of the lamb.

18 That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.

The glorious rapture and marriage supper of the lamb in heavenly new Jerusalem.

19 And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.

20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.

“Lake of fire burning with brimstone” – punishment by fire is prominent in both Biblical and non-Biblical Jewish writings (e.g., 1 Enoch 54:1).

Although the designation gehenna is not used here, this is what John refers to (see note on Matt 5:22).

Originally the site of a cultic shrine where human sacrifices were offered (2 Kgs 16:3, 23:10; Jer 7:31), it came to be equated with the “hell” of final judgment in apocalyptic literature.

21 And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.

“Fowls were filled with their flesh” – the “supper of the great God’ of vv. 17-18.

Is America Babylon?
Part 2 of 2

America Is Not Babylon

by Joseph Chambers

This stela comes from the Temple of Marduk in Babylon and dates from around 800 B.C.
It is a commemorative monument set up in honor of a private individual called Adad-etir.

He was an official in the temple, known as ‘the dagger bearer,’ and this stela was erected by his son Marduk-balassu-iqbi.

The figures carved in relief on the front represent the father and son together.

Their shaven heads show that they are both priests, it being normal in ancient Mesopotamia for a son to adopt his father’s profession.

There are three divine symbols above the two priests: a winged solar disc representing the sun-god Shamash, a crescent of the moon-god Sin and a lion-headed mace on a pedestal.

The cuneiform inscription includes a curse upon anyone who defaces the stela.

It translates:
“May Marduk, the great lord, in anger look upon him, and his name and his seed may he cause to disappear.

May Nabu, the scribe of all, curtail the number of his days.

But may the man who protects it be satisfied with the fulness of life.”

The purity of Holy Scripture is a miracle of miracles. Read any passage in the Bible and then do a little research. You will find clear interpretation for that Scripture.  Words that the Spirit used can never be understood properly by pulling a meaning out of the air.

The word “water” when used as a type is always the Word of God. When God says “Jerusalem,” He means the chosen of God. It is either His chosen city or His chosen people.

Babylon is used in the Bible over 295 times. When the Bible says “Mystery Babylon,” He speaks of a religion that has become evil and corrupt because “Babylon” is the seat of Satan.

When He says “Babylon” without a modifying adjective, He means Babylon the city, which was founded by Nimrod.

To try to identify America as Babylon is utterly contrary to Biblical interpretation. Using that kind of method to study the Bible leads to all kinds of misunderstandings. Always let the Bible interpret itself.

Mystery Babylon is clearly the End Time apostasy of false Christianity.  The 7th chapter of Revelation is the most noted example.

A harlot woman is another Biblical type of corrupt Christianity. A pure woman represents the pure faith of our Lord. The harlot woman is the opposite.

When you put “Mystery Babylon” with the “harlot woman,” you have a double picture of the utter false religion of the Seven Years of Tribulation.

It is religion at its lowest manifestation in human history. This is the church of the Antichrist.

Revelation chapter 18 is the city of Babylon rebuilt in the Southern part of Iraq.  To try to superimpose this chapter into America is contrary to every Biblical principle. There is not one basis for such transliterating of the Holy Bible.

The main reason this is often tried is because our nation has a preponderance of sins. I certainly admit that, but it is not God’s method of understanding the Word of God. What if we did that kind of twisting of all Scripture? Think of the mess it would create with our Bible.

America has got a lot of sins for which we are going to pay. This nation will be subject to all the horrid calamities of the Seven Years of Tribulation.

These calamities are God’s instruments for cleansing the world of abortions, fornications, sodomy, and every unclean lifestyle.

Millions will die and the wicked will learn that sin is always accountable to the Heavenly Father. Before the worst comes, the Saints will be raptured.

But, if the Lord tarries, you may think that the worst has already come even before the Rapture occurs.

Babylon is the city of Babylon and it must be rebuilt to be the capital of the Antichrist Kingdom. It is fitting that his One World Religion that gives him their total worship is called Mystery Babylon.

The unity of the two entities is part of the mystery of wickedness. For the early years of the Seven Years, the Antichrist and his false church will be bosom partners. They will use each other. So, calling one “Babylon” and the other one “Mystery Babylon” is perfect prophecy.

By the end of the Seven Years, the two Babylons will clash and the Antichrist will pour his fury upon Mystery Babylon and burn her with fire.

“And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire” (Rev 17:16).

This truth also destroys the idea that both chapters are talking about Rome as Mystery Babylon.

In Daniel 2 King Nebuchadnezzar is given a vision of the timeline of earth’s history from his own kingdom, Babylon, right to the end of time at the second coming of Jesus, represented by the rock that comes and smashes the image.
Now God gave Daniel the meaning of this vision and Daniel was able to relay this interpretation to the king.

38 And wheresoever the children of men dwell, the beasts of the field and the fowls of the heaven hath he given into thine hand, and hath made thee ruler over them all. Thou art this head of gold.

39 And after thee shall arise another kingdom inferior to thee, and another third kingdom of brass, which shall bear rule over all the earth.

40 And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron: forasmuch as iron breaketh in pieces and subdueth all things: and as iron that breaketh all these, shall it break in pieces and bruise.

41 And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potters’ clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay.

42 And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken.

43 And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.

44 And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand forever (Dan 2:38-44).

How could the Antichrist from literal Babylon burn Mystery Babylon if both are the same Babylon?

Again, the Bible leaves little room for misunderstanding if you let Scripture interpret Scripture.

This totally destroys the thought that America is Babylon. The question is an unanswerable one when we try to put America in some cubbyhole of prophecy. Much of the world is unnamed as you study the Bible.

Basically, the Bible’s prophecy picture is a Middle Eastern setting. You may call us an “Isle of the Sea” and that would put us in the Gog and Magog event.

I personally believe that when the army of Russians and Islamic countries march towards Israel, we will either come to Israel’s defense or suffer great destruction in cities like New York and Washington, DC.

That is still uncertain and our defense of Israel should not be done just to save our own necks.

History, not the Bible, proves that the Great Creator puts America in her wealthy position to spread the Gospel to the four corners of the world.

He also ordained us to win the Second World War and be a partner in the development of the Nation of Israel. Defending Israel since 1948, providing Israel with a faithful partnership, and being her ally right down to the end is absolutely God’s will for our great nation.

Anyone that would undercut that purpose needs to remember that God is still the sole owner and keeper of this Universe.

He can pull down an arrogant president just like He allowed him to be elected. I would suggest that any president or politician should watch his words and actions because God knows all things and Israel is His heartthrob.

America is not Babylon, but America is answerable to God for our grievous sins and for our responsibility to Israel.

Revelation 18 – The Desolation of Babylon & Is America Babylon? Part 1 of 2

I don’t agree or disagree with the below article.  The United States is arrogant and are bullies, so I do see the author’s point. 

Yet, even though the White House became extremely dark and wicked when Old Man Bush stepped into office, there hadn’t been any intelligence there until  Reagan was elected and then for another 24 years there was nothing but evilness, until Trump became president.

Of course, saying that America is not the revised Babylon is debatable.  It doesn’t matter to me because nothing happens that God does not want to happen, he is always in control.

But anyway, we have to look at both sides of things so tomorrow we will look at…

Revelation 18
The Desolation of Babylon

In Is 14 & Eze 28, we see prophecies that seem to be referring to the King of Babylon (Nimrod & Nebuchadnezzar) and also the Prince of Tyre.
But even though in these two prophecies, an earthly king is being described, we know from reading Dan 10:13-20 that for every “ground prince” there is a ruling demon prince (a principality) or a fallen angel.

Hence, the fallen one spoken of in Is 14 & Eze 28 is indeed Satan who also possessed Nimrod, Nebuchadnezzar, and the Prince of Tyre.

There is a very close similarity to Is 14 & Eze 28 that shows us that these prophecies are about Satan himself as well as the earthly vessels who were being used to carry out his evil plans.

1 And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory.

2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.

“Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen” – the double phrase is for emphasis and certainty

3 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.

4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.

“Come out of her” – a common prophetic warning (cf. 52:11; Jer 51:45; 2 Cor 6:27).

5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.

6 Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double.

7 How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.

“I sit a queen, and am no widow” – the ungodly system refuses to see itself as it really is.

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.

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,

18-9-20 – three groups lament: (1) kings (v. 9), (2) merchants (v. 11), and (3) sailors (v. 17).  The passage is modeled after Ezekiel’s laments over Tyre (Eze 27).

Fifteen of the 29 commodities in vv. 12-13 are also listed in Eze 27:12-22.

“Kings…bewail her, and lament” – probably because of their own great financial loss.

The Tower Building (named after the Tower of Babel) houses the Fifth Parliament of Europe.
It is certainly a building of the Space Age.
The seats are designed like the crew seats in the Star Trek space machines.
The legislative amphitheater is arranged in a massive hemicircle and has 679 seats, each assigned to a particular lawmaker.

While these seats are allocated to Members, one seat remains unallocated and unoccupied.

The number of that seat is 666.

The relevant section of the seating-plan provided to each Member reads as follows:
* 660 Marchiani
* 661 Montfort
* 662 Quiero
* 663 Souchet
* 664 Thomas-Mauro
* 665 Zizzner
* 666 ——-
* 667 Cappato
* 668 Turco
* 669 Bonino
* 670 Pannella
* 671 Dupuis
* 672 Della Vedova

Rev 13:18 states: “Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.” That is 666.

Today this Scripture is being fulfilled before our very eyes.

The Antichrist’s seat will be occupied.

The world awaits his full and final development.

The Lord will destroy him by the spirit of His mouth (the Word of God) and by the brightness of His coming (2 Thess 2:8).

The coming of the Lord draweth nigh.

10 Standing 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.

11 And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more:

12 The merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble,

“Purple” – an expensive dye since it must be extracted a drop at a time from the murex shellfish.

“Thyine wood” – an expensive dark wood from north Africa – used for inlay work in costly furniture.

13 And cinnamon, and odors, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men.

14 And the fruits that thy soul lusted after are departed from thee, and all things which were dainty and goodly are departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more at all.

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,

16 And 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!

17 For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off,

“Shipmaster” – the pilot of the ship rather than the owner.  Both are mentioned in Acts 27:11.

18 And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city!

“Cast dust on their heads” – an act of sorrow and dismay (see Eze 27:30).

19 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.

20 Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her.

21 And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all.

“Great millstone” – similar to the large millstone of Mk 9:42, which was actually a “donkey millstone” (one large enough to require a donkey to turn it).

The Brussels EU Parliament Building Enterior
The European Union (EU) parliament, consisting of 785 members, is in Brussels, Belgium.

Quite magnificent, is it not? Interestingly, the seat numbered 666 is never occupied.

Perhaps they are leaving it open for someone special?…The Antichrist!

22 And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman, of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more in thee; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in thee;

23 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.

24 And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.

Babylon America’s Nuclear Destruction
Is Coming

by Michael Clinton

Revelation 17 & 18 not Rome or Iraq

Many think that Mystery Babylon is America, or Italy (Rome), because it is a powerful, but sinful, country.
Actually, every nation now is a sinful country, so America is not that unique in this.

I have read Revelation 18 & 19 many times. Every time I read them I think it looks like a description of America.

The majority of Bible teachers tell us this is about Rome or the literal city of Babylon, but there are serious problems with these views.

The Babylon described in Revelation 17&18 is at the end of the age, it has a deep water port, it is totally destroyed, never to rise again. This is not true of ancient Babylon or Rome.

Did God Not See America?

Did God not see the most powerful, wealthy, influential nation to arise ever on the earth? I think he did, and America appears to be Babylon the Great.

In the same way that the Roman Empire was symbolized by Rome and the kingdom of Babylon was represented by the city of Babylon, so America here is symbolized by a city, probably New York.

America’s Symbols Came From Babylon

Even the symbols of America came from Babylon. We may think they are Roman or Greek but they got them from Babylon.

The Statue of Liberty, for instance, is actually a replica of the Babylonian goddess Ishtar the Mother of Harlots and the goddess of Freedom/Liberty. The Statue of the Goddess of Liberty topping the U.S. Capitol building dome is also Ishtar.

Standing guard at the entrance to the U.S. Capitol Building is a statue of the Greek god Mars. 

According to the U.S. Library of Congress and the Office of the Architect of the Capitol, the Greeks borrowed the god Mars and the religious dogmas from the Babylonians.

There are many maps concerning the division of Babylon America, and the most often you see is called the “Navy map”.
There are now a number of so-called Navy maps out there.

But here is one:
These maps vary somewhat from each other.

Remember also that if a major quake were to hit Fema Region III, it could well set the stage for The New Madrid Fault Breaking Loose.

This in turn could trigger the Mid-Continent Rift to trigger, thus bringing the Division of America.

In other words, the Region III quake would be the first Domino to fall in a whole series of massive quakes, which would result in the waters from the Gulf of Mexico inundating the inland regions of the mid-west, wiping out inland cities.

In reality Baal stands guard at the U.S. Capitol entrance.  The entire concept of the U.S. Capitol building was borrowed from Rome’s pagan temple dedicated to all the gods of Rome – it was called The Pantheon – yet, the Romans borrowed the concept from Babylon. 

It was explicitly the desire of George Washington and Thomas Jefferson to have this concept in the Capitol’s design; therefore, they rigged the bidding process to make sure this design included this “Babylonian” concept of the “Pantheon of the gods.”

Judgment Must Come

When I read about the slaughter of over 55,000,000 babies, the carnage of all the innocent people in the wars that are strictly for the greed of a few, the drugs being brought in by our own country by the CIA, the deaths of all the people who have tried to expose this, the drug programs like MK – ULTRA and Project Artichoke, Satanic ritual abuse of children among the elite of the country, the legal protection of sexual perversion, the corruption of morals worldwide through our music and entertainment, and the near total absence of any warning from the pastors in this land, I know  that God will not let this go unpunished.

“The main reason why I — along with many others — believe that America is the Babylon talked about in Revelation 18 is because of several verses that, when considered collectively, lead us to conclude that America is the only country that fulfills all of the parameters listed in the verses.

Let us examine what the scriptures say about this modern day end-times Babylon and see how they undeniably point to America.

1. End-times Babylon is a great nation that receives judgment for its many sins.

“And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird” (Rev. 18:2).

2. This nation is a superpower and has world dominance and importance. It has also spread its corruption to the world.

“For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her” (Rev. 18:3).

The Way of The Former Roman Empire is The Way of The United States
The United States could correctly be likened to a huge glacier that has – through the years of its being – run a broad and seemingly non- interruptible course through the world panorama, a course that emphasized its power and magnificence and illumined a connected series of divinely enhanced events, actions and developments throughout its diachronic existence.

Unfortunately there has also been concomitantly a broad and morality dissipating U.S. national progression that has extraordinarily eroded its base and shorn from it the last steadying vestiges of the anchoring social and spiritual appendages that brought it into being and helped greatly to steady the journey and to stabilize the course of the whole of the mass.

The United States now rests on the precipice of last hope, overlooking a sheer chasm of despair, and struggles frantically to hang on to the last vestiges of promise as it struggles against a nation of a collectively polluted morality and clings to a now mostly vanished – and neigh onto impossible to recover given the apostasy that is upon it – promise of its former glory and greatness.

With a will born of desperation the people and their political leaders cling to a grudging hold on the nation’s former glory.

Like that glacier previously mentioned this nation is slipping from that last desperate grip and is poised for a final slide into the boiling brine that will forever dissolve its greatness and dissipate into nothingness the residuals of its former glory and magnificence.

It will be an ignoble end to a greatly noble dream.

As with Jericho, God has set into motion the cadence of that final march around the borders of this nation that will precipitate the collapse and eternal extinction of what was arguably the greatest nation to ever exist on this earth.

The nation runs wobbly on, but its continuance is mostly fueled by the illustriousness of its previous existence and glory, in other words an inertia born of God’s divinely and blessedly bestowed gift of magnificence and prominence.

Secular Humanism – A Blueprint for Disaster

“The soul of the sluggard craves and gets nothing, while the soul of the diligent is richly supplied” (Prov 13:4).

“For we hear that some among you walk in idleness, not busy at work, but busybodies. Now such persons we command and encourage in the Lord Jesus Christ to do their work quietly and to earn their own living” (2 Thess 3:11-12).

“Rise up, you women who are at ease, hear my voice; you complacent daughters, give ear to my speech. In little more than a year you will shudder, you complacent women; for the grape harvest fails, the fruit harvest will not come. Tremble, you women who are at ease, shudder, you complacent ones; strip, and make yourselves bare, and tie sackcloth around your waist. Beat your breasts for the pleasant fields, for the fruitf

ul vine, for the soil of my people growing up in thorns and briers, yes, for all the joyous houses in the exultant city…” (Is 32:9-20).

Upon close inspection intelligent thinking people ought to be able to discern the source of the liberal/progressive ideology, it is an ideology spawned by the demonic realm under the auspices of that dragon of old Satan, and it has been diligently pursued by our exceedingly ignorant politicians as a birthright and as a cradle to grave doctrine emphasizing a person’s supposed innate capacity for self-realization.

This though none can exist or prosper without the staying hand of God…None!

Man was created in the image of God.

God hates sloth and feigned whining helplessness; He has equipped mankind with the tools to make His world one of worth and great dignity.

Satan, who looks upon men as usurpers of what he believes to be rightfully his despises mankind and continually endeavors to eliminate the whole of mankind from God’s creation. In the United States he has made great headway in this quest…thanks to the liberal/progressive community, particularly the satanically endowed Elite and the collective of spiritually deprived politicians who carry out the debilitating programs hatched in the mind of Satan, the greatest criminal in the Universe.

3. The merchants of the world are made rich through trading with this nation. This nation consumes huge amounts of goods.

“And the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies” (Rev. 18:3).

“And the merchants of the earth 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, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble,

And cinnamon, and odors, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men” (Rev. 18:11–13).

4. This nation is proud and arrogant and considers herself to be invincible and the greatest nation on earth.

“How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow” (Rev. 18:7).

5. This nation is typified by an extravagant lifestyle.

“And 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!” (Rev. 18:16).

6. Other nations are controlled by her and given great riches by her.

“And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her” (Rev. 18:9).

7. This nation is a coastal nation, with deep water ports and much international trade.

“And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off” (Rev. 18:17).

8. This nation has defenses in the heavens.

“Though Babylon should mount up to heaven, and though she should fortify the height of her strength, yet from me shall spoilers come unto her, saith the Lord” (Jer. 51:53).

Repeatedly we are told in Rev. 17&18 that Babylon the Great will be totally destroyed by a fire that will cause the mourners to stand at a great distance.

What kind of fire would cause this? What kind of fire would result in a land that could no longer be inhabited? How many Chernobyls and Fukushimas would be the result of sudden nuclear attack on our country?

Yes, it looks like America is Babylon the Great and that sometime in the future nuclear destruction will be the price we pay for rejecting God. I wish it were not true.
