Is the USA the Babylon of Revelation 18?


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


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. James F. Gauss says:

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

  2. 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…

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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
