Is America the Babylon of Jeremiah 50,51
and the Mystery Babylon of Revelations 18?

Amos 3:7 "Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets."

Ecclesiastes 8:5 "...A wise man's heart discerneth both time and judgement."

In order to fully comprehendthe above title let us consider the following eight facts of Jeremiah 50, 51 and Revelations 18

Jeremiah 50:12 "Your mother shall be sore cofounded; she that bare you shall be ashamed..."

Fact No. 1 Ancient Babylon had no mother, only a father and founder. Nimrod which means, "we will revolt." America's mother is the United Kingdom and she will be confounded at America's destruction."

Jeremiah 50:12 "... behold the hindermost of the naitons shall be wilderness, a dry land, and a desert."

Fact No. 2 The word hindermost in this verse means the last out of all the nations. Ancient Babylon was the third world empire. At the time of John's writing in the book of Revelation, John under inspirations of the Holy Spirit penned these words in Revelation 17:10. "And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet to come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space." At the time of John's writing the book of Revelation the king that was in power was operating through the Roman Empire. Five had already fallen these are in order as they fell: the Egyptians, Assyrians, Babylonians, Medo-Persia, and Greece. The one that is yet to come is the revived Roaman Empire this verse could not be talking about them, only America is the hindermost of nations.

Jeremiah 50:23 "How is the hammer of the whole earth cut asunder and broken! how is Babylon become a desolation among the nations!"

Fact No. 3 A hammer is symbolic in this verse to the ability of a nation to shape. Is this not what we do with a hammer? A carpenter uses a hammer to build houses, buildings, ect. A blacksmith uses a hammer to shape metal. If you look carefully at our nation through her foreign polocies, you will see a nation that has dominated the whole Earth as predicted in this verse. On the other hand if you look at Ancient Babylon you will see a nation that was only able to control just a small portion of the Middle East through a period of only 70 years.

Jeremiah 50:32 "And the most proud shall stumble and fall, and none shall raise him up: and I will kindle a fire in his cities, and it shall devour all round about him."

Fact No. 4 The Bible says in this verse that Babylon will be destroyed by a fire. On page 299 of Werner Keller second revised edition book. The Bible as History, it states this, "This conquest of Ancient Babylon by Medes and the Persians in 538 B.C. however did not follow the normal pattern: it was without a parallel of practice of the Ancient Orient. For this time there were no columns of smoke rising from behind shattered walls, no temples or palacesrazed to the ground, no house plundered no man was butcheredor impaled." Jeremiah describes this Babylon as  being destory with fire. This Babylon in Jeremiah 50:32 will be destroyed by fire.

Revelation 18:3 "...and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance or her delicacies."

Fact No. 5 This would be definitely described America. All nations of the Earth are enguged in import and export with America. Now many people confuse the Babylon of Revelations 17 with the Babylon of Revelation 18.Revelation 17 describes a religious system or false church. Revelation 17:9 the Bible describes this system to sit on seven mountains. This is the Vatican, which sets on seven hills, has a land mass of only 0.4 square kilometers and has no shiping ports or otherwise the merchants ofthe whole earth could not trade with her. This eleminates the Catholic Church whose headquaters is the Vatican City but would perfectly describe America today. 

Revelation 18:7 "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."

Fact No. 6 On October 6, 1996 Bill Clinton made this statement, " There are no nuclear missiles pointed at the children of the United States tonight." Here is a perfect example of how the politicians see the future. In Revelation 18:7, the Bible states that Mystery Babylon thinks that she shall see no sorrow. She says, "I sit as a Queen." On April 20th, 1998 an ABC News report with Peter Jennings said this, "U.S. and Russia still have in their nuclear arsenal 34,000 nuclear weapons. Consider that the U.S. keeps 1,000 nuclear warheads pointed at Russia (to destroy every target in the old Soviet Union 4 times over), and Russia keeps 1,100 nuclear weapons pointed at the U.S. The 1,000 nuclear warheads pointed at Russia is a combined explosive power equal to 40,000 bombs dropped on Hiroshima."

Now I would like to ask slick Willie a question. If there are no nuclear weapons pointed at the children of U.S. tonight as was stated on October 6, 1996. Would that statement be true today or was that just a symbolic gesture to make the American people think they shall see no sorrow? The reason that I ask this question so bluntly is our President, Bill Clinton has to have the question asked in the right manner in order to respond accordingly and also not to leave him any room to duck the question. Although Washington boasts of the symbolic gesture of no nuclear missiles pointing at the U.S. tonight, this is at best misleading and it would take less than ten seconds to re-program those missiles. In a recent issue of The Washington Times, circulation date July 6, 1998, page A-17 Michael Waller, vice president of the American Foreign Policy Council in Washington, D.C. made these insightful Facts known, in an article entitled, "No nukes pointed this way? Think again." Mr.Waller in a superb and professional article noted that after checking the White House Internet Website, he found in Mr. Clinton's official speeches that at least 131 times, Mr. Clinton has claimed that the American peoples are free from the threat of a nuclear missile attack from Russia. And in a quarter of the time at least 32 speeches, President Clinton stated that no country anywhere was aiming nuclear missiles at the American people. Even our defense secretary William Perry jumped upon the peace/non-proliferation band wagon with his speech in April 1996 to the peoples of George Washington University in which he stated this, Today, we do not need a national missile defense system because our nation is not now threatened by missiles of mass destruction. It is apparent by the ABC News report called, A Closer Look which aired on April 20th, 1998 that the condition of no nuclear weapons pointing at the children of the U.S. has changed since Bill Clinton made this boast of seeing no sorrow on Oct. 6, 1996. Or as Mr. Waller asks in his July 6, 1998 article, is this a slip of the tongue? I believe it is time the President leave the Pepto - Bismol, (that is the soothing calming agents) out of his speeches and tell the American people the plain old honest truth.

Revelations 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."

Fact No. 7 As I said earlier Ancient Babylon was not destroyed with fire. This Babylon will be destroyed with fire. In Hal Lindsey's new book, Apocalypse Code on page 139 it states this, " several nuclear scientists theorize that 20 to 30 nuclear warheads detonated within close proximity of time and space in mid-America could cause a fire storm that would sweep from the Appalachians to the Rocky Mountains." This friend, is how America could burn in one day.

Fact No. 8 In 538 B.C. Ancient Babylon was conquered. John wrote the book of Revelation in 90-93 A.D. some 629 years later. If this verse in Revelation 18:8 was referring to Ancient Babylon, John would merely be reading from the recorded text of Ancient History. This Babylon in Revelation 18 is a future Babylon and I believe without a doubt this Babylon to be America. Now that I have established this Babylon to be America I would like to do a timeline of when this could possibly happen.

When you combine Jude 14 and Zechariah 14: 1-4, you will see the picture of Christ coming at the end of the tribulation with 10,000 of his saints to execute judgment upon those who fight against Israel. Now in Zechariah 14:12, the Bible states this, " And this shall be the plague wherewith the Lord will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth."

On page 110 of Hal Lindsey's book Apocalypse Code, he offers this information. Israel has developed more neutron bombs than any other nation in the world. A neutron bomb will destroy everything that is a carbon bearing life form such as humans but will not destroy the buildings and the structures. Now why is Israel developing this bomb? Israel knows that the next war will probably require nuclear force and they know that they will need some type of protection from nuclear radiation. Israel also knows that they will probably need these buildings to protect them from radiation because they will probably be fighting a war that will require a bomb detention in close proximity to their beloved Promised Land. This is why Israel has developed more neutron bombs then any other nation. (Trinity's new Atomic Bomb Movie which documents our Government's nuclear tests, makes these facts known.)

A 21-Kiloton bomb instantly raises the temperature to 10 million degrees. It also produces a force of one million pounds of pressure. This is how their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet. Please consider the following facts on the horrors of nuclear war; 

  • In August 1945 112,000 were instantly killed by the bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
  • By the end of 1945 the death toll was 140,000.  
  • Five years later in 1950 the death toll was 227,000.

Is the cold war over? Can we as a free Society trust Yeltsin? Is the communists party dead as we have been lead to believe, or is a more sinister organization pushing the buttons and pulling the strings of the Russian Republic? Colonel Stanislav Lunev, the highest ranking military official to defect from the former Soviet Union recently wrote the book Through the Eyes of the Enemy. In this insightful book, Mr. Lunev details how Russia is still preparing for war with the U.S. why Yelstin cannot be trusted, and the Russian Mafia are the real movers and shakers of the old Soviet Union. Consider these following facts of the former Soviet Union:

  • Boris Yeltsin has ordered the GRU to make commercial and industrial espionage, it's primary mission. pg. 12
  • About three hundred of Russia's criminal gangs operate internationally. Twenty-six operate in the United States. pg. 15 
  • That the GRU (Glavnoye Razvedyvatelnoe Upravlenie) or military espionage agents are preparing nuclear bombs to look like bricks, logs, rocks, portable coolers and are preparing drop sites with probable dentition sites in the Shenandoah Valley and the Hudson River Valley. pgs. 25,68
  • An accidental release of a cloud of Anthrax that killed dozens in 1979 in Sverdlovsk was covered up by then chief of the Communist Party, a Mr. Boris Yeltsin. pgs 28-29
  • Lenin ordered intelligence officers to go to small towns and stir up civilian insurrections then send the military to kill everyone in sight. pg. 66
  • Almost all of the anti-war propaganda in the U.S. was sponsored by the GRU and the KGB at a cost to the Soviet Union at one billion dollars. pg 78
  • The GRU has a yellow list (that is a list of hundreds of American agencies and businesses that have already been compromised by the GRU). These are just a few: Nuclear Regulatory Commission, National Security Agency, NASA, Boeing, Martin Marietta, GE, Congressional Printing Office and others. Pgs. 132-133
  • To increase violence in the U.S. by paying selected Hollywood producers to produce violent and offensive films. pgs. 169-170 
  • Providing financial support to the most aggressive and violent minority leaders. pg 170

Can we trust a nation or leader who since WWII has tried to circumvent the U.S.? Is a piece of paper or handshake sufficient to protect us from Soviet aggression? I think not! After all, in Jeremiah 50:3, 41 the Bible declares through his prophet Jeremiah that he will cause a great nation from the north to make desolate, Babylon. Russia is just north of the U.S. and could dovetail this text with a perfect fit. If America were to get involved in a military conflict with Russia, then due to the fact that Russia's economy is equal to the size of Denmark's economy, Russia would be forced to resort to their nuclear arsenal first and not stage a prolonged war. After considering the facts, do you believe a treaty is the best way to secure our freedom or should we secure our freedom through intercession prayer and military strength? I think the latter is the most appropriate answer!

Regarding NATO, Alexander Lebed stated, " no one will push Russia into a corner." Lebed also commented on the proposed expansion of Poland, Czeck Rep., and Hungary that," such expansion could trigger World War III . The U.N. was started in 1945 to combat communism with 51 original members. In 1945 seventy percent of the world's population was represented by the U.N. In 1994 99.9 percent of the world's population was represented by the U.N. This expansion puts the U.N. all the way to the Russian border and they feel threatened and they have said they will use nuclear force to defend their territory. On April 30th, 1998 the U.N. took a vote and the proposed U.N. expansion was approved. This could be the catalyst that will provoke Russia to strike America. During World War II the Japanese said if we built the 1,500-mile stretch of highway in Alaska, they would consider it an act of war because Alaska was the shortest distance between the U.S. and Japan. This was on our own soil, in retaliation Japan attacked Pearl Harbor. Now we are pushing the U.N. to the border of Russia so our defense contractors can sell U.S. military hardware to Hungary, Poland, and the Czeck Republic only to close our beloved bases in America as John Warner said on April 30th, 1998.

Now what can we do? If you are a Christian you can watch and pray that you may be counted worthy to escape this terrible day. If you are not a Christian, I invite you to ask the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ into your Heart. Confess to others that you are a Christian for you overcome by the word of your testimony. Follow Jesus in water baptism, as this is an open confession of your faith. Last but not least get involved in a local fundamental Bible believing Church so that you may grow in God's grace and care. For God's word says in Hosea 4:6 that, " My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge... "
