Making sense of biblical prophecy is an incredible struggle. The Bible gives you a box of puzzle pieces with half of them left out and a fuzzy description of what the final picture should look like. The Bible then goes on to tell you that putting this puzzle together may mean the difference between life and death.
It’s not fair, right?
But, God has reasons for doing it this way, and our job is to make the best of all this and trust that He will guide us even when we make a mess of it. I’ve certainly made a hash of biblical prophecy in the past, but the Lord has always kept me on the path that I need to be.
Now, you might be asking yourself why you should listen to someone who’s ‘made a hash’ of biblical prophecy in the past. After all, I’ve screwed up once (more than once). How do you know that I’m not screwing up now?
Well, you can’t know that I’m not making serious errors here, but that doesn’t matter. You need to be checking all of this out for yourself. If you are trusting me to ‘get it right’, you’re an idiot and deserve everything that happens to you because of it. Let me say that again.
If you are trusting me to tell you what all this means, you are an idiot, and you deserve what happens to you.
So, maybe you should ignore this and read something else?
That might be a good idea. I don’t know. However, I do think that I have a unique perspective that you probably won’t get anywhere else.
And, who knows? Maybe I’m right.
But, let’s get back to our prophetic puzzle.
I said that it has missing pieces, and there really are pieces that are missing. For instance, there are no exact names. The descriptions of the key players are fuzzy, or even completely left out. In fact, most of the pieces have so many different ways to fit, you wonder if there is ANY way that you’re going to get this puzzle to come out right.
The key is in the missing pieces, and where to find them. The Lord said here:
Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.
– Luke 21:36
I get the praying part, and do that regularly and often. But, what does this commandment to ‘watch’ mean?
Do I get a pair of binoculars and room with a view?
You get an education and buy a newspaper because the ‘missing pieces’ to our puzzle are found in there.
Let me say this another way.
You cannot understand biblical prophecy about the ‘Last Days’ without a thorough understanding of what is happening around the world.
Of course, this also means that our ability to understand biblical prophecy is going to be more and more difficult the further we are from the events being predicted. However, things are becoming very, very clear – very, very quickly.
The scary thing is that the last year has seen a dramatic increase in clarity that is truly unsettling. In fact, I would use the word terrifying if I didn’t see God moving in my life and directing me on the path that I currently walk.
But, while I’m not worried about myself, I am worried about you. If you do not act now to escape the utter catastrophe that is coming, you will probably die in a way that defies the imagination.
THAT horrifies me.
But, back to those missing pieces.
What is it that we need to know?
Well, let’s look at a key piece in our box of puzzle pieces, and it’s found in Revelation 18:
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.
– Revelation 18:4
This is a key piece because it’s not just an identifier. It’s a command. There’s no suggestion here indicating that a better place for you might be somewhere else. No, this is a definite statement telling you to get out.
Get out of what?
Babylon the Great.
And that is the missing piece – the identity of Babylon the Great.
I believe that John Price in his book The End of America has done a masterful job in laying out the clues for the identity of this ‘Babylon the Great’. So, I won’t go over what he’s said. I just have a few things to say from my own point of view.
Let me start by indicating that this cannot be anywhere in Iraq. It is just flatly not possible – at least, not for the next couple centuries.
So, who else could this be?
It is traditional to point the finger at the Roman Catholic Church, so let’s do that.
Well, from the description in Revelation 18, and according to today’s world, that must be America. No one else fits.
It is true that China has persecuted Christians and has murdered hundreds of thousands of them – even millions. But, we aren’t at the point where we can say that China lives deliciously. Not yet, anyway.
So, our candidates are The RCC (Roman Catholic Church) and the USA.
Now, what are some of the key identifiers?
First of all, God’s people are in this entity.
How many of God’s people do you think are in the RCC?
And, when they find themselves there, how long do you think that they stay?
I don’t know about you, but you’d have to think quite favorably of the RCC to think that they have very many of God’s people in her – quite favorably indeed. Furthermore, you would also need to agree that God’s people would be comfortable being in the RCC.
Call it a personal failure on my part, but I cannot imagine that any of God’s people would ever be comfortable within the RCC. Just thinking about that gives me the shivers. God’s people wouldn’t need ANY encouragement to leave the RCC. None at all.
Now, I agree that this is a spurious bit of evidence. Just because I cannot imagine God’s people wanting to be in the RCC, doesn’t mean that there AREN’T people of God who want to be there.
So, let me take a closer look at the other bits of this chapter.
Whoever this “Babylon the Great” is, they supply the following:
Gold, Silver, precious stones, pearls, refined cloth, purple, silk, special wood, very fine manufactured goods, spices, medicines, food.
Does the RCC supply these things?
Nope. None of that.
Furthermore, Revelation 18 describes ‘Babylon the Great’ as being destroyed instantaneously. To destroy the RCC would take more than just having the Vatican being blown up by a nuclear weapon – which is pretty much what the description seems to indicate.
To destroy the RCC, you would need to do far, far more than just this. You would also need to round up all the cardinals and bishops, etc. around the world to effectively decapitate the RCC. The RCC is a highly distributed organization that could easily reconstitute itself nearby very, very quickly – almost instantly.
Furthermore, who hates the RCC enough to do this, while also having the organizational structure to be able to do a simultaneous attack throughout the world to make sure that the RCC could never recover?
Iran? Some other Muslim country?
Actually, I cannot think of anyone. And none of my sources have indicated any possible candidates, either.
The description just does not fit the RCC. To make it fit… well, I believe that it would require changing the words of the bible itself which is forbidden.
However, Revelation 18 ends with this verse:
And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.
Ooops. That’s going to be a tough one to explain. Because THIS indicates an entity that has murdered God’s people. We know that the RCC has done this, but the USA?
How has the USA persecuted God’s people? Even murdered them?
If John Price is right, this persecution is in our future, and there is some indication that this is coming. Quite a bit of indication, actually. If certain events occur as they seem to be prepared to, we could see Christians dying at the hands of the US government within four years – or less.
Of course, it would take some pretty catastrophic events to make that happen, but some pretty catastrophic events are headed our way.
Furthermore, the advisors and government officials surrounding Barack Obama have a lethal hatred of Christians and Christianity. It is entirely believable that they would stoop to murdering Christians, if they were given the chance. Bill Ayers and Cass Sunstein are just two examples of the kinds of psychopaths surrounding Barack Obama.
Also, I believe that close examination will find that the US government has been complicit in the murders of millions of people around the world – many of them Christians. America has supported some of the most awful dictators the world has ever known, and I believe that America has much blood on her hands because of this.
As the bible says, I believe that the blood of saints and prophets are already found in her.
But, weigh the evidence. Just because I cannot see how the Roman Catholic Church can fit the description of Revelation 18, doesn’t mean that this cannot be the RCC. Your metaphorical eyesight might be better than mine.
If you can see how the RCC fits, I would appreciate it if you could show me how.
But, let’s, for the sake of argument, assume that ‘Babylon the Great’ is the USA. It says in Revelation 18:6
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.
Reward her double?
How many children have been murdered since 1973?
At least 55 million. Some have said the total is nearer to 70 million.
From that alone, how many will die in the US?
110 to 140 million people.
But, let’s not stop there. Add in all the other capital crimes committed by Americans, according to God.
Adultery is a serious crime in the eyes of God, so let’s look at that.
It is said that the rate of adultery in the US is between 30 and 60%. Let’s take the lower figure, 30%. That’s something like 100 million people will have committed adultery at least once in their lives.
This is a crime worthy of death in the eyes of God. What is double that?
If America is to receive double for all of her crimes we are already talking about more than 300 million people being killed.
Add in all the blood on the hands of the US due to her evil foreign policy…
That’s millions upon millions. The slain of the whole earth.
What are the other crimes that require capital punishment according to God’s law?
Homocide, Sodomy, Sexual abuse of children, and even rape.
There will be double to pay for that, as well, which means that very few, if any, will survive what is about to happen.
God has promised that Babylon the Great will pay double, so double she will pay.
Now, before you scoff at this, let me tell you that Iran has plans to make this happen and may already have the means to do it. Thousands of nuclear warheads went missing in the 90s, and Iran could have a sizable number of those – or not.
Please, do not trust the US government to take care of this. It should be clear to you by now that God is going to allow the US to be destroyed by her enemies – her corruptions and murders alone cry out for it.
Furthermore, the US government has shown itself inept at controlling Iran and her own southern border, and we have documented proof that Iran has already taken advantage of this ineptness.
The sources that I trust indicate to me that Iran will attempt a decapitation strike upon the US sometime between now and 2016, and they will do their best to make sure that they have killed everyone in the US.
And… because God is just, I believe that they will succeed.
You must not be there when this happens, and I do not know how long you have before this takes place.
Please leave America as soon as you can.
