United States in Bible Prophecy
Most people are not aware that the USA is in Bible Prophecy.
The Beast from the Earth
Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon.
Pay special attention when the Bible says the word ‘earth’. There are two beasts mentioned in Revelation 13. In verses 1-10 the beast is Papal Rome where the Bible mentions comes up out of the sea.
There are four names for the devil used in the Bible:
In verse 11 the beast is the USA.
The Woman, the Child, and the Dragon
Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a garland of twelve stars.
In Bible prophecy the woman represents ( symbolizes ) the Church. The woman is clothed in the ‘Word of God’ ( sun ). The moon gets its light from the sun. The moon represents the gift of prophecy which is the testimony of Jesus. The crown of victory represented by the garland of twelve stars. The church is the body of Christ. If you are saved and in the church, you have the Victor’s Crown. Praise the Lord!
I have likened the daughter of Zion to a lovely and delicate woman.
And I have put My words in your mouth;
I have covered you with the shadow of My hand,
That I may plant the heavens,
Lay the foundations of the earth,
And say to Zion, ‘You are My people.’
Can you see how important God’s church is? Be very careful about being a hypocrite, about back biting, back stabbing or any other un Christian behavior. The Church is full of people who have problems. These people realize that Jesus is the answer. Young people get frustrated when they see bad behavior from adults and leave the church.
2 Corinthians 11:2
For I am jealous for you with godly jealousy. For I have betrothed you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.
Christ is the Head of the Church.
The Woman, the Child, and the Dragon
1 Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a garland of twelve stars. 2 Then being with child, she cried out in labor and in pain to give birth.
3 And another sign appeared in heaven: behold, a great, fiery red dragon having seven heads and ten horns, and seven diadems on his heads. 4 His tail drew a third of the stars of heaven and threw them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was ready to give birth, to devour her Child as soon as it was born. 5 She bore a male Child who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron. And her Child was caught up to God and His throne. 6 Then the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, that they should feed her there one thousand two hundred and sixty days.
A third of the angels were deceived by Lucifer and were flung to the earth as demons. The woman flees from the dragon.
The Woman Persecuted
13 Now when the dragon saw that he had been cast to the earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male Child. 14 But the woman was given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness to her place, where she is nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent. 15 So the serpent spewed water out of his mouth like a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away by the flood. 16 But the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed up the flood which the dragon had spewed out of his mouth.
During the 1,260 years, Papal Rome persecuted the Waldenses, the Ostrogoths and other tribes in Europe. God repeated verse 6 in verse 14 which means pay close attention to that verse. The Dark Ages of World History are revealed in verse 15. If you had a Bible during this time, you were killed. The Waldenses passed little pages of scripture amongst themselves during this time.
The serpent spewed water means Papal Rome sent out armies to destroy the tribes that were not following the Papacy. The earth helped the woman ( earth opened up its mouth and swallowed the river ).
In the early 1600’s, the Pilgrims came to Earth fleeing persecution. The Pilgrims were 102 people seeking religious freedom and endured 67 days at sea to flee persecution. This is the only time in the History of the World that this has happened. When the Pilgrims landed in Massachusetts, they were so far away from the dragon that they were finally safe. The USA is a safe place for the Church to dwell.
The Beast from the Earth
11 Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon. 12 And he exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence, and causes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. 13 He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men. 14 And he deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived. 15 He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed. 16 He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, 17 and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. 18 Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.
The fatal wound was healed in 1929 when Mussolini declared the Vatican its own sovereign power. The Papacy is now more powerful than it has ever been. In verse 14, the image to the beast ‘a likeness’ means the devil wants worship. In verse 15, worship is clearly the issue. God wants worship per the Ten Commandments ( Love the Lord Thy God ). Sunday worship is the image. The Papal authorities met with the two American ambassadors to the Vatican and asked for the USA to establish a Sunday Law in 2005.
21 “Now brother will deliver up brother to death, and a father his child; and children will rise up against parents and cause them to be put to death. 22 And you will be hated by all for My name’s sake. But he who endures to the end will be saved.
Don’t be scared about this prophecy because Jesus will protect you.
