Is the USA the Babylon of Revelation 18?

94 comments

Is the USA the “Babylon” of Revelation 18, marked for destruction?

Revelation 18 talks of a country the Bible calls “Babylon” that is destroyed by fire in “one hour” and plagued with “death, mourning and famine”. Revelation 18:8

Could this “Babylon” be the USA? Does it fit?

Revelation 18 describes the following about the Babylon mentioned:

(As always on this site, if you hover over Scripture verses they will POP UP.)

1. It is a literal place, with lots of wealth and products to sell. Rev. 18:12-13

2. It is a wealthy country that even sells its money (gold & silver). Rev. 18:11-12

3. It is a country that deceives all other countries. Rev. 18:23

4. It spreads its sexual immorality to other countries. Rev. 18:3

5. It lives in luxury. Rev. 18:7

6. It helps others get rich. Rev. 18:19, Rev. 18:3

7. It is ‘married’ to another country. Rev. 18:7

8. It is suddenly and utterly destroyed by fire. Rev. 18:8, Rev. 18:9-10, Rev. 18:17-18

9. It is responsible for many deaths. Rev. 18:24

Does the USA fit? Let’s go down the list one at a time.

It is a literal place with lots of wealth and products to sell. Rev. 18:12-13

Unlike the desert city of Babylon, Iraq, (map) which hasn’t sold much of anything, the USA has been a major producer. Until recently, its products were sold all over the world.

It is a wealthy country that even sells its money. Rev. 18:11-12, Rev. 18:3

The USA’s paper “Dollar” has been the world’s currency since the end of World War 2. Global trade is mostly done in “dollars”. Until recently, countries have bought lots of “dollars”. China owns about a trillion of them. LINK (That is changing. Satan’s new gold backed currency is fast approaching.)

It is a country that deceives all other countries. Rev. 18:23

Most in the USA think of ourselves as the ‘good guys’. After all, the USA is for “Liberty and Justice for all!”, right?

Maybe not. Let’s review USA history:

1. The early American Indians received little “liberty and justice”. LINK

2. So did lots of folks with dark skin. LINK

3. The Southerners learned of USA liberty when they chose to constitutionally withdraw from the Union because of unfair taxation. LINK The “Civil War” wasn’t mainly about slavery. LINK

4. In the early 1900’s Germany was becoming a world power to rival Great Britain and the USA. Two “great” wars beat them back down. LINK

5. The Korean War was all about global (United Nations) dominance. LINK

6. So was the Vietnam disaster. LINK

7. Iraq, Afghanistan, perhaps soon Pakistan and all of these Middle East “uprisings” are about money and control by the global banking elite. LINK

It spreads its sexual immorality to other countries. Rev. 18:3

Rather obvious. One word: “Hollywood”.

It lives in luxury. Rev. 18:7

The USA has been a very wealthy country indeed!

It is now experiencing increasing poverty as criminal bankers foreclose on the planet. For a heartbreaking example here is a link to a 60 Minutes piece about banker foreclosure fraud. LINK

It helps others get rich. Rev. 18:19, Rev. 18:3

Examples of this abound. One of the most obvious is the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. King Abdullah’s oil fields were not developed by the Bedouin, but by Rockefeller’s Exxon Mobile and Rothschild’s Royal Dutch Shell.

It is a country that is tied to another country. Rev. 18:7

The USA is tied to England. 1776 was a family squabble. Just follow the money:

1. The world’s “dollar” monetary system is controlled by the New York Federal Reserve Bank. LINK

2. The Federal Reserve is privately owned by global bankers with names like Rothschild, and others. LINK

3. Rothschild also controls the Bank of England. LINK (Bank of International Settlements, International Monetary Fund, World Bank, etc.)

Ergo, the USA is, economically speaking, England’s “Queen”; and not a “widow”. Rev. 18:7

It is suddenly and utterly destroyed by fire. Rev. 18:8, Rev. 18:9-10, Rev. 18:17-18

Obviously this has not happened yet. How could it?

One possible answer: Yellowstone. It is one of the world’s greatest calderas; a cauldron into the belly of the earth that is capable of producing a monster volcano. LINK

It could cause the whole of North America to be covered by a devastating cloud of ash.

It’s been discovered that earthquakes, 2000 miles away, off the North West coast, are linked to geyser increases in Yellowstone! LINK

It is a country responsible for many deaths. Rev. 18:24

This subject is horrible to contemplate. Examples: Hiroshima LINK, Agent Orange LINK. War’s cost in misery and death is incalculable.

True statement: Wars are deliberately planned by Satan and his global rulers for profit and control, always leading us closer to his coming world government.

Example A) Here is the real reason why The USA is currently leading the charge in the Middle East. LINK

Example B) The USA government finally admitted the Vietnam War began with a lie. Vid LINK

Example C) Here is obvious evidence that the endless, so called “War on Terror” sadly began by using professional demolition experts on 911. LINK Hundreds of thousands of folks have been hurt or killed ever since.

Other countries are forced to get into debt and trade in USA paper “dollars” or else! If you don’t want to participate in the “dollar” denominated banking system you can find yourself at the wrong end of a very big gun. (Video LINK: Economic Hit Man.)

The USA has lots of guns. The USA Military is currently stationed in 150 of the 194 countries of the world. LINK & LINK

The Rocktagon concludes that the USA is the Babylon of Revelation 18.

What do you think?

And when do you think it may happen?

Please participate in the poll. Let’s see what we all think.

In any event, as our Lord taught, we always ought to always be ready! Matthew 25:1-12

This world is only temporary. Matthew 24:35

The whole earth will be destroyed by fire one day. 2 Peter 3:7

AND, FOR SOME REALLY GOOD NEWS:

Those who love Jesus Christ will be with Him forever in the New Heavens and on a New Earth. 2 Peter 3:13

For some much needed joy, as well as some perspective, hover over these verses:
Jn. 14:1-3, 1 Thess. 4:17, 2 Cor. 5:8, Phil. 1:23

I like to say that I can’t wait until I get my eternal upgrade! Woo Hoo!

  1. Francisco says:

    Sounds more like China to me. The US is not rich any more. It owes a ton of money to China. But really, you can say all of these things, or at least most of them about any country. All governments and countries are evil.

    • JesusChrist.comUnity says:

      American honest folks are not rich, that’s for sure. Can’t say that about the Satanically inspired banksters who control U.S. and wage war to foreclose on the planet.

  2. Revelation 17:6Amplified Bible (AMP)
    I also saw that the woman was drunk, [drunk] with the blood of the saints (God’s people) and the blood of the martyrs [who witnessed] for Jesus. And when I saw her, I was utterly amazed and wondered greatly.

    Revelation 18:20Amplified Bible (AMP)
    Rejoice (celebrate) over her, O heaven! O saints (people of God) and apostles and prophets, because God has EXECUTED VENGEANCE FOR YOU UPON HER

    How these verses can be related with the interpretation that Babylon is US?

    • JesusChrist.comUnity says:

      USA is very drunk with blood. Look up the comments of the most decorated General in the history of the USA, Smedley Butler. He said he was nothing but a hired thug for evil corporations his entire career. Nothing has changed. Satan is putting icing on cake and the USA is the military wing of his plan, enforcing the acceptance of the US Dollar, which bankers print for their own benefit.

  3. In the Army i woke everyday to say the soldiers creed and live the army life. I think differently of other branches just as a real fan would his team. This is what you do with your religon and its gross and barbaric. Read a physics book Richard Feynman helped me out of my lost world the truth is better than any writer of the bible could have imagined.

    • JesusChrist.comUnity says:

      God granted you the right to believe His Word is “gross and barbaric”. It may seem right for now. You might feel different when His offer of eternal life no longer applies. Nothing gross about teaching folks to love one another.

  4. Andy Troche says:

    Revelation 18 sounds like a description of America and if it is America we should be happy of what will happen to America because the Lord God tells us to be happy in verse 20.

  5. seeking truth says:

    My pastor says isn’t necessarily a place it’s a system can anyone elaborate on this please

    • JesusChrist.comUnity says:

      It is a system. But it is also a place which can be seen from a boat. Read Revelation 18

  6. Melvin Johnson says:

    America is on it’s way to destruction and don’t know it or don’t care! There is a great decline in Godly morals. It is a fact, America will be destroyed. Rights have replaced righteousness.

    There is an increase in the quest for money, fame and fortune. These have replaced seeking the Kingdom of God. Unfortunately, this will not change. Thus, heaven and hell. Because it is not going to change, simply means that we must make a choice.

    We must choose Gods’ way!

    Repent!

    God Bless

  7. Yes indeed, America is Babylon.I wish it were not true but the scripture cannot be denied. When God tells us to
    “come out of her my people” do you all think we are to leave(like now) or what?? I don’t know of anybody leaving USA for this reason but would love to go if I knew where to flee. Any comments?

    • Angela Johnson says:

      America has become a ungodly nation it is a dangerous thing to fall into the hands of a angery GOD!!

  8. I placed a scripture in my post from the NKJV, I would appreciate it if the link to the ESV was removed. This is a translation by Westcott-Hort and is not accurate.

    • JesusChrist.comUnity says:

      Not able to remove just one link. NKJV does it too at times. They all do. It’s a bummer.

      • Have you ever read up on Westcott-Hort, the translation was done via atheism – Westcott stated he did not even understand what he was doing.

        At any rate, thanks for the come back.

  9. I just heard David Jeremiah say the Babylon of Iraq was the Babylon of Revelation; I guess this goes along with his belief in the rapture and once saved always saved.

    The collapse of the US started with SCOTUS removing prayer from the schools and thrown into high gear when George Bush was in office with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. The moral collapse is well underway with same-sex marriage, government supplied abortion and free money to those who refuse to work.

    Is the US the Babylon of Revelation, I have believed this for many years because of its’ arrogance/stupidity. There has already been talk of a new currency that would replace the US dollar as the standard and if this happens, America will die in one hour: Rev 18:10…‘Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! For in one hour your judgment has come.’

    • Angela Johnson says:

      I agree with you Roger , American society has become a corrupt and immoral, Americas’ arrogance.Is going to cost us. You would have thought 9/11 would have woke us up but not so. America has been a bless nation but we have taken many things for granted abuse and misuse power towards various nations and even our own people. Money, Technology, Sports, Entertainment has become our idols. America will sell its mother to make a deal/dollar. Morality is no more. Marriage has become abnormal, Judgement will begain at the house of God. Churches have become personal businesses so-call get rich schemes. God is not please. America Needs to REPENT NOW!!!!

  10. Jeremiah 51:7
    Babylon was a gold cup in the Lord’s hand;
        she made the whole earth drunk.
    (Sex, Drugs and Rock-N-Roll Baby)
    The nations drank her wine;
        therefore they have now gone mad.

    Jeremiah 51:17-18

    “Everyone is senseless and without knowledge;
        every goldsmith is shamed by his idols.
    The images he makes are a fraud; (Lady Liberty?!)
        they have no breath in them.
    18 They are worthless, the objects of mockery;
        when their judgment comes, they will perish.

    Is 47:7
    You said, ‘I am forever—
        the eternal queen!’
    But you did not consider these things
        or reflect on what might happen.

    Rev 18:7
    Give her as much torment and grief
        as the glory and luxury she gave herself.
    In her heart she boasts,
        ‘I sit enthroned as queen.
    I am not a widow;
        I will never mourn.’

    America is the “Arrogant Queen (Lady Liberty) of Nations” – who “Rules over the Kings of the Earth” (UN) that will be Utterly Burned with Fire (EMP/Nuclear Assault) in One Horrific Hour.

    • Wilberforce says:

      In light of the many predictions of the imminent collapse of the US dollar and the US economy, it would seem that the United States is about to be utterly destroyed as Revelation explains will happen to Babylon. The sad part is that most other countries of the world will be dragged down with her.

      It is not hard to see that a country that once considered itself to be a Christian nation has done an about-face. The next few months and years promise to be very interesting, indeed, as prophesy unfolds itself. When the signs appear, we are told to look up because our redemption draws nigh. So start looking up. The time is now!

      • While America is NOT Babylon. Anyone can point to a major influencing city or country and apply it fits. True biblical formula is using OT scripture to interpret NT scripture; as the old testament is the shadow of the new. Zechariah 5 points out Mystery Babylon would corrupt the whole world; and be set upon her OWN base in the land Shinar (the middleast). America is NOT the land of shinar but is referred to as ends of the earth, the west etc. In fact, Isaiah 59 says “the west shall revere him”. I think you need to read this.. I am NOT saying America is perfect either.

        • Angela Johnson says:

          America may or may not be the modern day Babylon, I do understand that the middle-east will have a great part in the end-times. I feel it started there will end there. We all must get our houses in order to meet the Lord. Americas’ time of being the World’s Most Powerful nation is coming to an End as we know it to be. America is still by far a great nation to live in in comparing with other nations, We are becoming a godless society and nation that is where the trouble lies. There Shall not have no other Gods before Me!! America needs God as never before we are headed towards the end times. Lord have mercy on us all. REPENT!!!

  11. SittingMoose Shaman says:

    …there is Rev.17:9, which puts her atop 7 mountains… I know Holy Spirit speaks in spiritual poetry…a gentle voice however, filled with concise meaning…albeit troubling…as many of us may be required to live on through the great catastrophe.
    Even civil war is being argued for as Washington D.C. , Prez Obama and the banks’ control of congress edges further and further away from our
    Constitution…”even so” the USofA belongs to the “Enemy” as are every government…
    George Washington proclaimed that, (though a different ‘school of thought’ in ~cir. 1778-79) “…these United States of America shall be built upon the 7 Pillars of the Liberal Arts…” yikes!
    Well, yes the “Founders” were as LIBERAL as any ever could & would be.
    Otherwise, they all’d hailed: “Forever the Throne of King GeorgeIII!”;
    “God Save the King!!” …and THAT…would’ve been the end o’ it, lads…
    Spiritually…this is the clincher.
    The “goodness” of ‘merica is fading fast. As her ‘laws’ stifle Constitutional freedoms more & more every day…and DC Gestapo murder the innocent upon a komissar’s whim -then, little is ever done to the wicked bureaucrat &/or public official – as these fear the political extortionists.
    Post WW’s I & II ‘NAZI’…as “liberalism” came to DC & Democratic/uber rich top GOP party bosses…TO STAY!
    This sadly, IS Babylon…& it breaks my heart, badly…

  12. Timothy Clark says:

    it is an unfortunate fact that America has become the chief exporter of sin to the entire world.

  13. TheBigOne says:

    Did you know since Obama’s second reign 1/3 of our military has been *fired* for not agreeing to homosexuality and the remaining ones are forced to wear hats that women used in WW2 to promote *Unisex?*

    Hint. Our government is more immoral then ever and China and Russia have been caught red handed making plans this year to dump the US dollar. They know have most of the worlds gold reserves and don’t need our dollars anymore.

  14. James F. Gauss says:

    Read my latest book: “Revelation 18 and the fate of America” available on Amazon and elsewhere.

  15. It does seem to me that all this desire for money, power and all things associated with it has it’s roots here in America…people are on drugs and selling drugs because of it and buying a lot of designer/status crap in order to acquire higher self-esteem without thought for what is really important: the true well-being of others; without real love for anyone, not even themselves…it is modern-day idolatry and 100% evil and destructive…there’s just no getting around it. We have people who are in poverty here but it is nothing compared to other parts of the world…we have become a nation of ungrateful people who struggle mostly to get more stuff and tell other folks what to do all the time…

    • Angela Johnson says:

      I agree with you Lauren, We are in the end times America has become a un-godly nation we allow any and every type of lifestyle in our society. Our God is Money status quo so-call higher education. We have become educated fools. When you take God which is Jesus Christ out of your lives and society as a whole . Yes we are headed for damnation. It is a dangerous thing to fall into the hands of an angery GOD!!! Help us Lord!!

  16. I think there is a good case that the USA is the “great city”. It is eerie but there is even a reference to “no lamp will be found in her” and we are often referred to as “a shining city on a hill.” so that fits. I think “Mystery” is false Christianity, or pagan/”Christian” amalgams, specifically and most notably (in head-count and historical force) the Roman Catholic Church/Eastern Orthodox Church–in other words, the Holy Roman Empire/Byzantine Empire. Once they went off the Bible, they opened the door to all kinds of satanic heresies, culminating in the New Age and amalgams of magical systems with the name of Christ, like Santeria or the papacy.
    The USA is the world’s most successful “rebel” and went against Romans 13 in forcibly throwing off the English King. “A rebellion is as witchcraft”. So now we are the haunt of every foul bird and demon, as the Scripture says.

    • Jean,
      Now wait a minute? The USA is in rebellion to God because of the Revolutionary War? We weren’t successful until after we won our independence because the king was trying to tax us to death.
      We are the land of the free and home of the brave, no huddled masses yearning to be free here, instead they are coming in here like it’s Disney World. Oh, and say, does that star spangled banner yet wave?
      Yes it is, hundreds of years later.

  17. The final beast is a conglomerate of the other 4 beasts of Revelation 13 and Daniel 8, the Leopard, Bear, Lion. Therefore it will be Middle Eastern, namely Islamic.

    Per Rev.17:11 within Mystery Babylon there is a seventh empire that is like unto the 8th, which is in my view the Ottoman Empire revived, or Islam now that it’s deadly head wound has been healed to the wonder of the whole world who are saying who can make war with the beast, especially now that they are about to make fire coming down from heaven, (or that may just be a deception, see Rev. 13).

    According to Rev. 17:12 there will be ten kings that only last one hour in battle against the Lamb, and although they have tried to rule the whole world by the sword since their inception, causing all, both small and great to take the beast’s mark, or it’s name, they have obviously failed on that point. But they will continue to try to the bitter end, standing where it should not, claiming to be God from the temple mount, until that which is predetermined will be poured out on them.

    It says in Rev.17:16 these ten kings who make up mystery Babylon shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate. Islam is not just a military empire made for world conquest, it is also a false religion. When Jesus comes back with his two edged sword proceeding out of his mouth, the beast’s army is going to turn on their woman, their religion, and Islam will not only be destroyed as a world bully, but also as a false religion. God will put it in their hearts to do so. Then it will not be the temple mount that is left desolate, but the Kaaba stone in Saudi Arabia. When Jesus comes back they are going to realize all their prophets were wrong, and all the fighting they did, all the relatives they lost, it was all for nothing. Islam as a world religion will be destroyed.

    One last thing, Daniel’s statue, Daniel 2:33,the conglomerate beast:
    His legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay. 34 Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces. 35 Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshing floors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the image (Jesus) became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth.

    • Maria A. Fernandes says:

      Chris, what a great revelation, I always wondered who the woman was, and the temple mount, thank you and God bless you, you dont know how much this revelation means to me. Again Bless you.

      • That was insane!!!
        The 10 Kings receive power along with the Beast that they might accomplish G-ds Purpose. Is 47 and Jeremiah 50 and 51 tell you numerous times what that Purpose is – “G-ds purpose is to destroy Babylon”. Babylon is the Capital of Satans earthly Kingdom and has moved through time – From Babylon to Assyria to Egypt to Medo-Persia to Greece to Rome. It’s never been hard to find – it has always been marked by the Statue/Symbol of the Harlot – Simeramis (In Assyria), Ishtar (In Babylon), Isis (In Egypt), Athena (In Greece), Minerva (Rome)! Where does she stand now?! Hint: Liberty Enlightening the World!!!

        G-ds Purpose is to DESTROY the Harlot Spirit of Babylon – and thus He empowers Anti-Christ (Prob. Islam, Russia, China Alliance) to accomplish His purpose.
        Now you know how the Harlot is “Guilty of the Blood of the Saints and ALL who have been killed in the Earth”. The Jews in Assyria, Babylon and Egypt. The Jews and Christians in Greece and Rome. Today SHE is LIBERTY! America is Babylon!!!

        • More?!
          She is also known as “The Queen of Heaven” (Jeremiah 7:18 and Jer 44). Her cohort is Ba’al (Marduk in Babylon, Osiris in Egypt, Zeus in Greece, Jupitor in Rome) and their symbol is “The Star of Remphan” – aka The PENTAGRAM!!! Ba’al usually symbolized by an Apis Bull (The Golden Calf of the Exodus or The Charging Bull of Wall Street or the Baphemet). Note how this Harlot Satanic/Luciferic Religion of Hell has even it’s substitute for Christ (Tamuz in Babylon, Horus in Egypt et al). It’s the Synogog of Satan spoken of by Christ.
          She (The religion of Liberty) was guilty of the Blood of the Saints when they openly sacrificied their own children to Molech (Ba’al). Of the Saints when the “Liberated” people of Rome Burnt Christians (And Jews) as street lights. Of the Saints now – today it’s masked as ABORTION (60,000,000 in America alone).

          She has “Led the World astray” —- in Vice, Corruption et al…..

          America is the Harlot. X (Lady Liberty) marks the spot!!!!
          Anti-Christ will destroy her!!!

          • Oh! And now She near completion of the “Tower of BABEL (ONE WORLD Trade CENTER)”.

            “The Harlot!” The “Tower of Babel”! All NYC!!! THE BIG APPLE!!! GOTHAM!!!

  18. Unfortunately, I have to agree with you. Even the OT prophets wrote about “mystery” Babylon. See Jeremiah (50 and 51) and Isaiah (14 and 47) for two clear references. I won’t go into an elaborate commentary of those chapters, but if you are short on time, look at Jeremiah 50:12:
    “12 Your mother shall be sore confounded; she that bare you shall be ashamed: behold, the hindermost of the nations shall be a wilderness, a dry land, and a desert.”

    As I see it, mother=Great Britain; hindermost=last and youngest great nation=USA

    But, Rev 17-18 seems pretty obvious to me too. This can’t be talking about literal Babylon, Iraq, Rome, or the Revived Roman Empire. It fits completely – America and NYC. Why do you think the United Nations is located there? Guess what town greets many ships heading North into the NYC Harbor? Yep, Babylon, NY.

  19. Martin Ellis says:

    I feel strongly that the USA is Babylon as defined by Revelation 18. This was once a great nation, but now we are haunted by fowl spirits and fornicators. We cannot pay the 17 Trill. that we are in debt to the world. As for the fire and destruction – it will come when the Government falls, which should not be too far away. Maranatha.

    • Angela Johnson says:

      When you allow your seed to be violated and abuse by fowl unclean spirits generation after generation our youth does not have a sense of who god is and what godly values are. We have allow men and women to live together as man and wife without making a true commitments to god first and each other. Our family systems have been broken. More children are raising them selves and in single parent homes without guidance. So-call churches have become nothing more than social clubs. When leaders of our government are ungodly and being lead by satan, The end results can not help but to end in destruction as the Bible warn us this would happen. Wake Up America GOD IS SOON TO COME!!REPENT, REPENT !

  20. Suzanne says:

    The USA is the hated one. Everyone will come against us. Middle East countries may have problems with their neighbors, but you look at the hatred toward the “Western ways”. We have gone in and tried to take their power, their faith, their wealth and they can’t stand us. My husband had to go to great effort to stay alive while working in all areas of the middle east because they ALL hate Americans so ganging up together against us is a coveted plan. We are indeed Babylon and Obama is coming out smelling like the stinkiest rose ever grown in the garden next to that nasty tree of good and evil.
    all that said, repent. Jesus is knockin’ and I am a listenin’. I believe he also wants us to be spreading the gospel and gathering the saved. Someone needs to be around to tell them it’s gonna be alright – we got JESUS so I’m thinking the rapture is in phases.
    God Bless
