USA in Revelations
Revelations is a book for the end of the age as is Daniel 7. In fact Daniel is told to close up the book for it is for the end of the age. The suggestion is that it will not be fully understood till then. People over the ages have tried to interrupted it and looked at what was around them and then extrapolated out. It is just not possible but now we are here at the end of the age we can look at what is in front of us. No fancy codes or mysteries are to be applied, I use the words as they are meant today in today's language. After all it is written for us in the end times and I am confident that my God would be able to make it plain. For example when the prophets of old said Jesus was going to ride into Jerusalem on a donkey he actually rode into town on a donkey. So today lions are England bears are Russia and eagles are the USA. In Revelations and Daniel 7 there are no aliens, giants, mystery plants, lizard men, rapture or secret codes. So I have placed USA in the place of the Eagle but not when it is a face of an angel. The other place the USA is talked about is that it is the last head of Babylon the Great. It is not hard to see that USA is the last head and there are a number of good explanations. Follow this link to one of the best. However, I will go over it again quickly to clear up a common misunderstandings. The vision John saw consisted of four parts. The woman riding the beast and it is her name which is BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF PROSTITUTES AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. Then there are the heads the horns and the beast itself.
Revelation 17 we see this picture of the woman on the beast with seven heads. First the woman is called by different names. The great harlot, the woman, the prostitute, the Mother of Harlots and the great city. The last description of the woman is the great city. Is this a particular city say New York or is it a generic city with a large population. It is commonly held that the first heads or nations had only one city that dominated like Phebes and Egypt, Ninevah and Assyria, Babylon, and Persia but Greece starts to see a change and Rome as well with many large cities. I think that Babylon was the first head because it is described as a city of merchants in Jeremiah. A place of trade and the creation of wealth and money. Love of money is the root of all evil. The line goes Babylon, Greece the generals of Alexander made another three and Rome. It makes no real difference. As Rome changed into the Holy Roman Empire and into Europe there became many large cities at the same time. Rome as the sixth head continued in many forms until the role was passed on to the seventh head. What made Rome any more wicked than Paris or Amsterdam or Berlin? It is the wickedness and not the location that makes it evil. I can only conclude that the great city is a name for all large cities within a country also they sit on many waters which suggests many locations. The cry goes out "fallen fallen is Babylon the great" but it can never truly be destroyed until all large cities are destroyed. The woman is the large cities of a country, the heads are the countries the horns are people and the beast is the spiritual being that has dominion over particular areas. The the beast itself is the angel of the bottomless pit called Abaddon.
The list of cities and countries above is also a list of the heads of the beast. There are six including Rome but I am talking about the USA being the seventh head. It is an important point to grasp that the USA is not Babylon the Great but the seventh head of the beast. The Roman Empire never really went away. It just transformed over time into new empires but it roots are always from the Roman Empire. In fact you can say Australia, Canada and Brazil all have there roots in the Roman Empire. However, the meaning of a country is a geographical one. Even though you may have the heritage you also need the physical. The new head needed a new geographical area.
In December 1945 the nations signed into being the IMF and they also signed an agreement making the US dollar the world reserve currency. At that point the USA became the seventh head of the beast. It met the criteria of being the richest and the strongest militarily. The USA's time as the last head was signed into being in a day. The USSR lasted 70 years because that is a significant number in the Word for nations. The USA as the head turns seventy in December 2015. If the last head is to last only a little while then you should see the demise of the USA some time in the next ten years from 2015. Psalm 90- 10 says 'The years of our life are seventy, or even by reason of strength eighty;' and so it is with nations. I believe the USA is a type of King Saul. He believed in God and was a man of God but could not stop himself doing his own will. Finally the kingdom was given to another. Sounds like the USA. Saul lived for 72 years so I strongly believe that the financial collapse of the USA will happen before December 2018. At that point the USA as the head of the beast turns seventy three. However the next most likely time would be before The end of December 2016. The ace in the hole for the US has been having the world reserve currency. It meant that no matter how incompetent they got they could just print more money. It is why they have been interfering in every countries affairs from Ghana to Germany to Jamaica. They need to retain it. But alas it has turned out to be a poisoned chalice.
Revelations 18 is the look at the fall of Babylon the Great in chronological order. First an angel appears with great authority and the earth is made bright by his presents. This is the revealing of things hidden by the darkness of deception. The wicked men who have stolen the USA from its people by using deception will be exposed to the rest of the world. We are really seeing this unfold with the 2016 Presidential elections. You could see this in other countries as well. There has also been a number of modern prophecies saying this is going to happen.
Second is Fallen Fallen is Babylon the Great . It is also in Rev 14 to do with the 144000 and we will come back to that.
This cry is the signal of financial collapse. It could be a number of things. A collapse in the value of the dollar or losing the reserve currency status or some combination is by far the most likely.
Three, when this happens what does God say to the saints in the USA. Come out of her my people least you take part in her sins. The sins of Babylon the Great. Remember this is not the USA but the cities of USA.
First the fall then the call to leave the cities and now the attack. Her plagues will come upon her in a single day. She will be burned with fire. This is what the angel says but the merchants say she is destroyed in a single hour. So will Babylon the great city be thrown down with violence, and will be found no more. Once the cities are destroyed they will never be rebuilt.
Before we get into how the cities are destroyed I would like to make an interesting speculation about Hillary Clinton. The description in Rev 18 4-8 is a picture of the great city but also a description of Hillary Clinton. It says "since in her heart she says, ‘I sit as a queen, I am no widow, and mourning I shall never see." These are words spoken in a persons heart a symbol can not say them but an individual persons thoughts. This scripture is a repeat of what Isaiah 47 says. In Isaiah it gives far more of an impression the it is an individual saying this. If Clinton is president and we know the last president will be a woman from a woman making these statements. The financial collapse has taken place and she is saying words "‘I am, and there is none besides me. I will never be a widow or suffer the loss of children you need to run and do not look back if you live in a city. I am writing this on the 6th of March 2016 so this is speculation Trump is going to bring the corruption to light as Hillary gets to be President. However, it may be another woman, maybe Trump will have a woman Vice President. Trump is backed by organised crime and the dirt that is going to come out is going to be mind blowing. Much of the talk about Hillary is she is on the side of those running the world and can not lose. However, if she does and the USA is given some sort of reprieve and it could be up to eight years the changes could sweep the world. Fallen fallen could still take place during a trump Presidency but not the attack.
Now we have things revealed, financial collapse, the president say everything good we get to a the physical attack.
All these years of arrogant disrespect for the other countries of the world by the wicked men who have stolen the USA. Countries where forced to pour there money into her and made her exceedingly wealthy. The hatred boils over. Destroyed in one hour by fire. All those who buy and sell, those who trade and have become very rich. Fleets of boats, planes and vehicles have lost there source of income. They will turn to someone to save them. Any guesses who will be showing up soon? The Antichrist.
There are two combinations that I see could see the destruction of the cities. The first is at the end of 2016 where there are mass riots cause by Clinton cheating the election. The USA is already set to explode and this could trigger it. More likely is before the end of 2018. The destruction of the cities is likely done by nuclear weapons but there are some other options. A coordinated attack by extremist could do it but less likely. A general rebellion could cause the devastation in one hour and a Yellowstone eruption could also cause it. An EMP attack would be second on the list. The problem is how do you utterly destroy all the large cities by fire in one hour. The only way I can see is by nuclear attack .You may say that this will not work because the explosive area of a nuclear bomb is only around five miles but it is not the blast that starts the fires but the incredible flash that accompanies it. Most houses are full of plastic items and that will explode into flames from the flash up to 15 miles away. That's a 30 mile diameter. The ensuing fire storms will be unstoppable. The description of the level of destruction of the cities will probably be done by nuclear weapons. So when you leave the cities make sure you take into account the drift of radiation. Even though modern nuclear weapons have far less radiation than the older ones it is best to be safe. The saints need to have a rough plan of what they are going to do. I assume most Americans are familiar with George Washington's dream. He said "I had a dream that he saw three wars on American soil". The first was a war of independence the second was a war of brother against brother. Then there was a final conflict where he saw the large cities being burnt to the ground. The people in the country arose and to rebuild the country. The cities will never be rebuilt. If you do not want to believe me believe your founding father. I did not fit Revelations 17 and 18 to the prophesy but discovered it after writing the repeated story view of Revelations. The victory at the end of the prophecy is not a physical one but a spiritual one. The reason Satan has so encouraged the Rapture concept is to make the Christians in the USA unprepared for the last battle against the Antichrist. If you are unfamiliar with the prophecy go to You tube and type in George Washington dream. I believe a large city could be as low as 120,000 people. The population of Nineveh in Jonas time. It probably will be 250,000 as that was the population of Babylon but it did go up and down. The USA will rebuild spiritually but the cities will never be rebuilt ever. Who will your attackers be? Germany, UK, France, Russia, Italy and two others. It will take too long to give an explanation so go to the whatofthenight blog and 'Revelations repeated story' then down to Daniel 7's beasts. Germany just received twenty nuclear weapons from the USA and they could end up destroying American cities. The scripture is Rev 17-16 And the ten horns that you saw, they and the beast will hate the prostitute. They will make her desolate and naked, and devour her flesh and burn her up with fire. This is the horns of the beast from Rev 13 and not the beast from Rev 17. They sound the same but if you look closely you can see that they must be two beasts.
It is interesting that the merchants of the world get a mention. The current collapsing economies are caused by a few reasons. A big one is too much wealth getting into the hands of too few people. The problems caused by multi nationals or more precisely the people who own the multi nationals running unchecked and manipulating things out of natural balances. Politically and financially. They are going to be on the outer and greatly harmed.
The Rev 13 Beast with 10 horns only lasts three and a half years so that means there will be less than three and a half years before the Antichrist appears on the scene. Once the Antichrist appears there are only eight horns. When the Antichrist appears the tribulation starts and the great calamities that shake the world.
What will happen to the American Christians and alternative news media? If they have a plan they can keep broadcasting. They will be the main news source and can have a dominant position in what the American public hears. They need to look at what will be the consequences of this attack with internet feeds and electricity. I would suggest they buy a boat or two together or move some hardware to Canada or Mexico. This will need divine guidance.
Now the good news.
The USA in the tribulation. I am basing these thoughts on when the bible talks about an eagle it is a symbol and we see the symbol for the US is an eagle. Now The USA has had its cities destroyed. The military will get destroyed if they attack and because everything has got so high tech it would quickly lose all functionality without the logistical support. Because of corruption most of the US military is for show and not for war. Russia with a relatively small budget has produced superior fighter aircraft. Hopefully I will not be a lone voice but the Lord will get this message out. Even though the USA will not be powerful it will be the main opposition to the Antichrist and possibly a safe haven. I get this from where the eagle is mentioned so let us have a look at where the eagle pops up. Rev 9 Then I looked, and I heard an eagle crying with a loud voice as it flew directly overhead, “Woe, woe, woe to those who dwell on the earth, at the blasts of the other trumpets that the three angels are about to blow!” That could be an American satellite or TV like Daystar over the internet but most likely radio transmissions or even a ship on the ocean broadcasting. I am suggesting that Christian radio from the USA will still be broadcasting at this point of the tribulation. The next mention Rev 12. The woman is given eagles wings to escape from what come from Satan's mouth. This is the Christian Israelis escaping to somewhere safe. Do two or three American Aircraft Carriers send in planes and helicopters before Jerusalem is given over to the nations? The Antichrist is trying to hurt them and the Americans are rescuing them. This means they are enemies. If so, it is great news for them for of all the inhabitants of the world only them and the 144000 are safe. A broken USA and a few other countries fighting the Antichrist to the end and the day of the Lord. This doesn't preclude a section of USA society is in the hand of the Antichrist and a battle is still in the land.
Now let's go back to the 144000 and Rev 14. The first angel flying over head says “Fear God and give him glory, because the hour of his judgment has come, and worship him who made heaven and earth, the sea and the springs of water.” This is what the 144,000 are preaching and it must come before the fall of Babylon. The second angel cries "fallen fallen is Babylon the Great." I am starting to see the fear God and repent and judgement has come being preached more and more. For more about the 144000 go to the blog "Fear God" the cry of the 144,000. If you have an overwhelming desire to preach “Fear God and give him glory, because the hour of his judgment has come, and worship him who made heaven and earth, the sea and the springs of water.” You could well be part of the most select group of people that creation will ever see. The problem with knowing who they are is their lack of numbers. 144000 in a population of around 8 billion is one in every sixty thousand people. What they are saying will not be reported in the media or the vast majority of Mega churches. The Media these days is so controlled they could be active right now and we are just not hearing it. This is a great worry to me as they are a key to times and dates. Keep an eye out for people teaching Fear God.
I often hear and read leave the USA, emigrate. But I am sure the USA is the place to be for Americans. Just make sure you can leave the cities and go to a place you have prepared. It is when the female president is saying I am no widow and have not suffered the loss of children.
So in summary we will look at the sequence of events.
Things are going to be revealed. We are seeing this in the current USA elections.
144000 cry Fear God and repent.
The queen declaring she will never be a widow or poor. Likely a female President. The last American President.
Mega churches are in the large cities so they will be no more.
The Christians in the country who lived there or fled there are going to have a move of God that will be indescribable. Never before and never again will such a thing happen in the flesh. This is not in the scriptures but a prophecy.
USA becomes the nemesis of the Antichrist.
There are some things in Revelations that are over a longer period like the white and red horses. But there are some things that are the beginning of the end. The sign of the women in the heavens and the great calm before the 144000 appear but
it is the light from the angel of Rev 18 that is the first thing. This is happening now with the current USA elections. What we have seen with the Democrats and Republicans corruption is mind blowing. Because this is a spiritual thing we are only just beginning and as the US heads to the November elections we are going to be shocked at what we will see.
The End is here now, we are living it so be prepared.
