Where is America in End Time Bible Prophecy?

It is hard for people to believe that a nation that can be as great and powerful as America has been over the last 200 plus years will be absent during the end times. I even read one article that said America is the beast with two horns as a lamb but spoke as a dragon in Revelation 13 as if the prophecy in that chapter was filled in 1798 when America was an up and coming superpower so that is America. As Col. Potter once said so eloquently on an episode of MASH, “horse hockey!” 

I see no reason to disagree with what the majority of the commentators on this. One beast is the revived Roman Empire (the temporal rein) while the other who works in cooperation with the first is the Papacy of the Roman Catholic church (the spiritual). There is no reason to drag America in there.

 


The question is then, where is America?

While America may still exist in the end times, she will clearly not be a major player influencing the world, at best she will be a second rate power.I would like to propose three reasons for this:

America has abandoned God.

The Bible say “blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord” (Psalm 33:12) and “woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil” (Isaiah 5:20).
We have fell as from a nation whose Supreme Court declared that we are a Christian nation (Trinity Church v. United States 1892) to a nation whose president boldly declared that “we are no longer a Christian nation..” (President Barack Obama in a speech in June 2007). As a nation he has some strong points in his corner. We have some woes to answer for:

  • The blood of over 56 million babies butchered and it has been called “freedom of choice.”
  • The woe of taking an abomination in the eyes of God and calling it a lifestyle choice.
  • The woe of abandoning Israel when the Bible says I will bless those who bless thee and curse those who curse thee.

 

America has turned her back on God and lost her moral compass. There was no nation on earth that was powerful enough to defeat Rome but she became morally decayed and weakened from the inside out long before she fell. That is just one of the issues, the second one is…

America will have lost her Christian influence.
The second thing is that once the rapture happens and Christians are removed from this earth what restraint that will was there will be gone.

For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. (1 Thessalonians 4:15-17)

Just as God would not destroy the righteous with the wicked in Sodom but waited for Lot and his family to leave, God will hold back his Great Tribulation until He removes His own, the church and the righteous will be gone from America. .

Once this event has occurred the brakes will be off, there will be no restraints, no meaningful objections or resistance God’s people and (what is left) of their positive influence on America will be gone.

America has a crushing national debt.
Lastly we have a crushing national debt.is currently over 17 trillion dollars. It is an unpayable debt. We could tax income at 100% and not pay it off, there is not enough money to do it and the sad thing is that not only are we not paying the debt down, we cannot control our deficit spending. We cannot even agree to discontinue programs that are luxuries like PBS and NPR. They are nice to have when we can afford it but they are not needed.

Before we can even start paying down our debt we must stop spending more than we make, but we have reached a critical point in our country where almost 50% of the people receive government assistance. As
Elmer T. Peterson (9 December 1951) said: “A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the majority discovers it can vote itself largess out of the public treasury. After that, the majority always votes for the candidate promising the most benefits with the result the democracy collapses because of the loose fiscal policy ensuing, always to be followed by a dictatorship, then a monarchy.”

Even though we are a not a democracy but a republic, we are heading down this road. With so many people on public assistance (food stamps , welfare, etc.) we need to find a way to cut spending to survive and the politicians in Washington will not do it, they want to keep their cushy jobs.

That leaves us here: Bible says “the borrower is the servant of the lender.” (Proverbs 22:7) and with our great debt to China this may be the straw that breaks America’s back when that note comes due and it will be because of our fiscal irresponsibility. The collapse will most likely ruin America and we will be under a yoke of bondage to China..

Three thoughts on why America will not be a factor in the end times besides the fact she is not mentioned in the Bible at all. That is my opinion, what about yours?

  1. I agree with you. Since I firmly believe in the pre-trib rapture of the saints, I can only imagine what America will look like after its only restraining force is gone.

    The reason that America is not mentioned in prophecy is because it won’t exist as we know it by that time. It barely does now! It will be nicely absorbed into the NWO with barely a peep. People don’t realize fully what NAFTA did to our sovereignty already. It’s a done deal.

    I have no suggestion about your font trouble. I do know that wordpress is in some sort of updating mode. I was having trouble even getting to the “edit post” category this morning.

  2. America has been faltering for over 20 years. I believe the die was being cast during Desert Storm when our foreign policy started supplying weapons to Arab nations. This was politics at work on the global stage. In order to go after Iraq we needed the support of Arab nations. Both democratic and republic presidents has been apart of this for the influx of Arab cash (investments) and for economic security for their precious oil. This is one fly in the ointment.

    Another is the religious health has weakened due to gross indifference to our fellowman’s spiritual needs. Democracy is a two edged sword and it’s “democracy” is falling prey to the great variety of self interest groups and the influx of other religions. This is because of the high number of unconverted immigrants from so many places in the world. The problem is majority vote is still democracy at work whether we like the end result is a matter of opinion. Let me add, that part of the churches indifference is aimed also at Christ and an unwillingness to follow fully the hope for Him. There will be a lot of church members left behind. The formula is this “as the churches goes so does America the nation”. Scripture by the Apostle Paul in 2Thess 2:3 “Let no man deceive you by any means for that day (day of Christ) shall not come except there come a falling away first…….” This is not a national falling away (though that will occur also) but it is the falling away of religious principles by those in attendance…..Christianity.

    Much more could be said……the heart of so many christians is so full of pride and self righteousness they are failing to walk in the righteousness of God. The Church of Laodicea is in full bloom. The remnant has already been looking for the Lord and have found Him and ready. America will be a land of Tears from all the inner strife and discontent with blame going everywhere after the rapture. For the judgement of the nations does not exclude the USA just he that overcomes!

    1. Thank you for your comment. I think it goes further back than that. June 25th, 1962 when the Supreme Court banned prayer from public schools. It was made worse in 1973 in Row v. Wade when infanticide was made legal. America has been weighed in the scales and found wanting. Good point on the indifference and pride of the church. We should be an active part of the solution.

  3. My thought is and not only thought but fact. America must be ready for a fall because of her morality. The proud and the evil that she support and cheer will be the reason of her fall. It is not that the nation that will rise is perfect but America was formerly raised by God but now she have denied her raiser and turned to her evil ways. Children of God in America you are not the victims. Put your total hope and faith to God and you will survive.
