America Not Mentioned In Prophecy | Revelation 11:2

You will not find the United States of America mentioned anywhere in the Bible

Some people say that is debatable. But the Bible doesn’t lie. The United States of America doesn’t appear anywhere in the Bible. You may infer it does, you may make assumptions that it does, you may point to some potential sign or symbol to say it does, but nowhere in the Bible is the U.S. mentioned. Some say that Revelation 17 or Revelation 18 is a reference to the U.S. I disagree. The Bible, in prophecy, talks about world powers that have been around for thousands of years. The U.S. is just a blip on the screen by comparison. So any references to the Great Prostitute, Revelation 17, or Mystery Babylon, Revelation 18, are only of interest to Christians now. Two-hundred fifty years ago there was no U.S. and no comparison was available. It may well be that way in another few years.

China is rapidly overtaking the U.S. in a number of major and critical areas. Over the past 50 years and thanks to both Democrats and Republicans who clearly followed the leading of the prince and power of the air (another name for Satan), America has been set up to fail, to be removed, to be of no consequence, to be destroyed, and most likely at the hands of the Chinese. But that is probably prophetic. Revelation 16:12-14 talks about the sixth bowl of judgment being poured out and the kings of the east going to Israel to fight the Lord at the battle of Armageddon. No mention of the U.S., or the eagle, or the bad orange-man. 

If President Trump wins reelection in 2020, and I hope he does, we will have an escalated adversarial relationship with China. It’s inevitable. Democrats and Republicans sold us out, and Americans went for it hook, line, and sinker. We wanted cheap stufff. Politicians wanted campaign money (Republicans as well as Democrats) and corporate America gave it to them. That is, the corporate America that does a significant amount of business in China. And these corporations don’t care where the resources are that will make them the most money. If the Democrats win in 2020 they will apologize to China and the rest fo the world, similar to President Obama’s apology tour. Things will get a little better with China in the short term, but the Chinese will continue with their policies of world domination, the Belt & Road Initiative, in every area, all to the expense of the United States. But I digress.

The one scripture that speaks volumes about the potential destruction of the United States

The most remarkable scripture in the book of Revelation, actually only a sentence, that speaks volumes about America in the last days is found in Revelation 11:2.

But leave out the outer courtyard, do not measure it for it has been given to the Gentiles, and the holy city they will trample under foot for forty-two months.” –Revelation 11:2

If you read carefully here you will see that Israel, Jerusalem in particular, is being trampled underfoot. Luke has more to say regarding this siege.

And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations and Jerusalem will be trampled by the Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled.” –Luke 21:24

And I would add that Romans 11:25 has a direct bearing on the events describe above. The are many that would disagree saying they are unrelated. Most of those who disagree also can’t tell you where in Revelation the rapture occurs or when the tribulation period begins. This verse helps to define both.

For I do not want you brothers to be ignorant of this mystery, so that you should be wise in your own your own self; that blindness in part has happened to Israel until the full number of Gentiles has come in. –Romans 11:25

What do these scriptures have to do with the lack of mention of the United States of America in prophecy? Well, this. Who is the number one ally of Israel. Well, of course it is the Unites States. If Israel has been overrun by Gentiles, where is the United States? What could possibly have happened that the United States did not come to the aid and defense of Israel who was being overrun by Gentiles. Luke 21 above says that they were falling by the sword and being taken captive. This is war, plain and simple. And why aren’t we there to help our best ally in the region, and perhaps on the entire planet? Have we been destroyed by the events on Revelation 8 & Revelation 9? Mountains of burning fire striking the earth, Revelation 8:8, the second trumpet. How about Revelation 8:10 where John sees a huge star burning like a torch falling from the sky landing on the earth and poisoning the waters with Wormwood. This, of course, is all followed by the fourth trumpet where the sun, moon and stars are darkened. 

Maybe it was just the Democrats, who hate Israel, taking over and refusing to come to the aid of Israel. That’s scary. If you continue to study and research the events of the end-times you will eventually come to the conclusion that the events of Revelation 11:2 are the precursor to the rapture. The timing is perfect. Because the events of Revelation 11:2 lead right up to the Antichrist being revealed in Revelation 13:5. America is nowhere to be found in the Bible. As great a nation as we are, we are not mentioned in Bible prophecy. A look at the social unrest of today reveals that these Democrats don’t respect anything. Just you wait and see. They’re coming after the Christians eventually. God help us all!
