Re: America is truly Babylon - End is coming soon
America has shifted towards a nation of disgrace.

America has become Babylon.

I am far from a religious person but read all books and absorb all knowledge.

Tonight I realized that it is true what many say, America is Babylon.
 Quoting: Saratonin


Mystery Babylon, and the masons/rosicrucians spell it Babalon.

We are Mystery Babalon, because we are founded and run by Baphomet cultists and Mammonites. All presidenst and serious power brokers are involed in the Baphomet cults.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 19202196


how is this different from the rest of the world, though?
all false religion as Babalon goes back at least to just after the flood and has a much richer, more complex history. It fits much better.

Alright did Britain capture its empire by by acting like a prostitute or was it a little more of the military force thing?

These daughters of big mama religious harlot, assured this manly customer that it was God's will for manly one to kill as many Chinese as they possibly could.

Re: America is truly Babylon - End is coming soon
You guys do realize that Babylon in Revelation is Satan's city where he sets up a throne that shows he is the God of the Bible, where the fuck other than Jerusalem is he going to be able to complete the verse below let alone having 'blind Jews' as his cohort.

2Th:2:4:
Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God,
or that is worshipped;
so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God,
shewing himself that he is God
.


Re:18:7:
How much she hath glorified herself,
and lived deliciously,
so much torment and sorrow give her:
for she saith in her heart,
I sit a queen,
and am no widow,
and shall see no sorrow.


La:1:1:
How doth the city sit solitary,
that was full of people!
how is she become as a widow!
she that was great among the nations,

and princess among the provinces,
how is she become tributary!
La:1:2:
She weepeth sore in the night,
and her tears are on her cheeks:
among all her lovers she hath none to comfort her:
all her friends have dealt treacherously with her,
they are become her enemies.
La:1:3:
Judah is gone into captivity because of affliction,
and because of great servitude:
she dwelleth among the heathen,
she findeth no rest:
all her persecutors overtook her between the straits.

 Quoting: MHz


How about a decent translation, while we're at it , though anyone who really wanted to know could use that one above too.

2 Thessalonians 2:3 Let no one seduce YOU in any manner, because it will not come unless the apostasy comes first and the man of lawlessness gets revealed, the son of destruction. 4 He is set in opposition and lifts himself up over everyone who is called “god” or an object of reverence, so that he sits down in the temple of The God, publicly showing himself to be a god. 5 Do YOU not remember that, while I was yet with YOU, I used to tell YOU these things?
Man of lawlessness is the clergy class of ALL FALSE RELIGION.
That never had a scriptural basis in the Christian congregation.
The Apostles were acting as a restraint, but after they died, full apostasy could take hold, and has done -2000 years. You know, "heal in my name, expel demons in my name" etc?
matthew 7:19 Every tree not producing fine fruit gets cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Really, then, by their fruits YOU will recognize those [men].
21 “Not everyone saying to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter into the kingdom of the heavens, but the one doing the will of my Father who is in the heavens will. 22 Many will say to me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and expel demons in your name, and perform many powerful works in your name?’ 23 And yet then I will confess to them: I never knew YOU! Get away from me, YOU workers of lawlessness.

The revelation one is Babylon, where the man of lawlessness officiates.

As to that Lamentations one, the Messiah did come after that was written and he was in the line of Judah from whom the sceptre was not to depart...

But honestly, this minute I don't know if that was to have a modern day fulfillment too?

Babylon is a city.

Re:11:8:
And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city,
which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt,
where also our Lord was crucified.

Re:16:19:
And the great city was divided into three parts,
and the cities of the nations fell:
and great Babylon came in remembrance before God,
to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath.

Re:18:21:
And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone,
and cast it into the sea,
saying,
Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down,
and shall be found no more at all.

Re:18:10:
Standing afar off for the fear of her torment,
saying,
Alas,
alas,
that great city Babylon,
that mighty city!
for in one hour is thy judgment come.
Re:18:17:
For in one hour so great riches is come to nought.
And every shipmaster,
and all the company in ships,
and sailors,
and as many as trade by sea,
stood afar off,
Re:18:19:
And they cast dust on their heads,
and cried,
weeping and wailing,
saying,
Alas,
alas,
that great city,
wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness!
for in one hour is she made desolate.

You promotion is who from the Nations will support Satan's Babylon, the answer is given in the list in Jer:25 and this sums up what will happen to every Nation on earth.

Jer:25:32:
Thus saith the LORD of hosts,
Behold,
evil shall go forth from nation to nation,
and a great whirlwind shall be raised up from the coasts of the earth.
Jer:25:33:
And the slain of the LORD shall be at that day from one end of the earth even unto the other end of the earth:
they shall not be lamented,
neither gathered, n
or buried;
they shall be dung upon the ground.

Re: America is truly Babylon - End is coming soon
Just as Isaiah walked around naked for 3 years for a sign, so the same will be with the americans when the Day of the Lord comes. There is a 42 month captivity coming before the 7 year tribulation. Even Isaiah 21:27 shows you the 3 years again:
I will overturn(1), overturn(2), overturn(3), it: and it shall be no more, until he come whose right it is; and I will give it him.......where it says and it shall be no more until he come whose right it is, this is the last day servant God raises up from amongst the people after the 42 month captivity right before the 7 year tribulation. This servant will feed the people spritually for 7 years just as Joseph fed the people during the physical famine in Egypt. The key is to look at what happens in the physical and know that there will be the same thing in the spiritual coming. If satan is going to have an antichrist and a false prophet you can be sure it is only a counterfeit of what God has with the "two witnesses" and when the anti-christ and the false prophet are building the 3rd temple the two witnesses are building the spiritual temple of God bringing people to the knowledge of Jesus Christ and teaching righteousness after the people have went through the furnace of affliction(idols removed and went into slavery for 42 months). Think about it, you can't get a message to people with all the distractions of daily living we have. People right now may hear about God for may 5 minutes a day and most of that is because they accidently scanned the radio to a christian station or jumped over a christian t.v station. The word of God is scarcely heard in the United States anymore and when it is 90 percent of it is "for a gift of 100 dollars we can sent you this beautiful gold inlayed bible or something they are trying to sell you" I'm not saying all but a vast majority are just in it for money.

People largely can't help where they live, at least in what country. You're more and more stuck here. But ppl by and large can stop giving their allegiance to false religion. It's a good thing that separation of church and state is more the thing, now. Because you're coming to a point you have to choose now., and you're better off without state coercion.
there's so much more to this that's really fascinating, i wish I could draw to your notice, but God knows this is long and disjointed enough.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 10858311


This is critical. The state must always become the opposite of religion. Counter every and any spiritual way of life. It does this for the sake of doing it. not because it necessarily needs to be done.

separation of church and state is a relatively new concept. and we are seeing its disastrous effect. the Frankenstein religion of secular humanism, communism, fascism, redistributing wealth that does even exist yet.

but that is what they think they are supposed to do, directed by the god of atheism, with force.

Re: America is truly Babylon - End is coming soon
babylon was a anciet city in asia minor

america is not a city

and is located in the western hemisphere

oh yeah, a parroting dolt
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 27869363



Babylon was not in Asia Minor (Anatolia) but in Mesopotamia. Asia Minor is rugged, Mesopotamia is a fertile alluvial plain.
When the Bible refers to Babylon, it refers both to the city and the state, what we would call Babylon and Babylonia. The sins of Babylon are the sins of the capital city and those of the corrupt country as a whole: the reason why a country like the US can fit in to such an end time description.
Kosmokraters: the real evil powers migrate with the real human powers of the time: at one time it was Babylon but today it is the USA. To humans who ignore spiritual realities
Babylon and USA are not the same. To those who don't the USA of 2012 is very much the Babylon of the Kosmokraters and the one being described in the Bible.
 Quoting: AC 360 18608718


Daniel's statue of world powers: 1.Babylon,2. medo-persia 3. greece 4. rome 5.Anglo-American [2 feet of "moist clay mixed with iron"]
All of these are also symbolized by beasts. Babylon is both a beast=political entity, AND the rider of a beast.

Here's the beast she's riding:2 The seven heads of that ferocious beast stand for seven “mountains,” or seven “kings.” Both terms are used Scripturally to refer to governmental powers. (Jeremiah 51:24, 25; Daniel 2:34, 35, 44, 45) In the Bible, six world powers are mentioned as having an impact on the affairs of God’s people: Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece, and Rome. Of these, five had already come and gone by the time John received Revelation, whereas Rome was still very much a world power. This corresponds well with the words, “five have fallen, one is.” But what of “the other” that was due to come?

*** re chap. 35 p. 253 pars. 6-7 Executing Babylon the Great ***
6 By the 15th century, however, some countries were building brand-new empires. While some of these new imperial powers were found in the territory of former colonies of Rome, their empires were not mere continuations of the Roman Empire. Portugal, Spain, France, and Holland all became seats of far-flung domains. But the most successful was Britain, which came to preside over a huge empire on which ‘the sun never set.’ This empire spread at different times over much of North America, Africa, India, and Southeast Asia, as well as the expanse of the South Pacific.
7 By the 19th century, some of the colonies in North America had already broken away from Britain to form the independent United States of America. Politically, some conflict between the new nation and the former motherland continued. Nevertheless, the first world war forced both countries to recognize their common interests and cemented a special relationship between them. Thus, a kind of dual world power came to exist, made up of the United States of America, now the world’s wealthiest nation, and Great Britain, seat of the world’s largest empire. Here, then, is the seventh ‘head,’ or world power, that continues into the time of the end and in the territories of which the modern-day Witnesses of Jehovah first got established. Compared with the long reign of the sixth head, the seventh remains only “a short while,” until God’s Kingdom destroys all national entities." Revelation,WATCHTOWER

*** re chap. 35 p. 256 par. 16 Executing Babylon the Great ***
16 Just as ancient Babylon relied on her watery defenses, Babylon the Great today relies on her huge membership of “peoples and crowds and nations and tongues.” The angel appropriately draws our attention to these before telling of a shocking development: Political governments of this earth will turn violently upon Babylon the Great. What will all those “peoples and crowds and nations and tongues” do then? God’s people are already warning Babylon the Great that the water of the river Euphrates will dry up. (Revelation 16:12) Those waters will finally drain away completely. They will not be able to give the disgusting old harlot any effectual support in her hour of greatest need.—Isaiah 44:27; Jeremiah 50:38; 51:36, 37.

Do you honestly think GOD would leave America (The most war-mongering nation in WORLD HISTORY) out of the bible?

Obama is Daniel's littlehorn....he WILL declare himself GOD.

Us 'crazy Christians' have been telling you people this for years but no-one wanted to listen.
 Quoting: mrclean


Yes, let's look at Jeremiah 51.

They will fall down slain in Babylon,[c]
fatally wounded in her streets.
5 For Israel and Judah have not been forsaken
by their God, the Lord Almighty,


Present day Babylon is Iraq. God says for Israel and Judah have not been forsaken by their God - who may I ask has been against Israel - the Muslim nations or the United States?

It is time for the Lord’s vengeance;
he will repay her what she deserves.


“‘The Lord has vindicated us;
come, let us tell in Zion
what the Lord our God has done.’


Vindicate means to 'Clear of accusation, blame, suspicion, or doubt with supporting proof'

Who may I ask has been making false accusations against Israel all throughout the years, the Muslims OR the United States?

The Lord has stirred up the kings of the Medes,
because his purpose is to destroy Babylon.
The Lord will take vengeance,
vengeance for his temple.


The Medes are present day Iran. Look at all of the sabre rattling going on with Iran these days. Vengeance for God's temple? There is no temple. But there is a Muslim Dome of the Rock sitting on the temple mount where God's temple once stood. Again, it sounds to me like God is more upset with the Muslims than the United States.

“Before your eyes I will repay Babylon and all who live in Babylonia[e] for all the wrong they have done in Zion,” declares the Lord.

25 “I am against you, you destroying mountain,
you who destroy the whole earth,”
declares the Lord.


God will repay Babylon for all the wrong they have done in Zion (Israel). Who may I ask has done wrong in Israel, the United States OR the Muslims? God goes on to call Babylonia the 'destroying mountain, you who destroy the whole earth' Given time, I don't doubt that the Muslims would destroy the whole earth. Even now, they're calling for destruction of the pyramids.

Prepare the nations for battle against her;
summon against her these kingdoms:
Ararat, Minni and Ashkenaz.


Ararat is supposed to be present day Turkey. Ashkenaz is supposed to be present day Germany and European nations. I wasn't able to find anything on Minni. I'm not aware of the US having any ongoing conflicts with any of these nations.

Who are they going to fight?

Prepare the nations for battle against her—
the kings of the Medes,
their governors and all their officials,
and all the countries they rule.


Again, the Medes is a reference to present day Iran.

the Lord’s purposes against Babylon stand—
to lay waste the land of Babylon
so that no one will live there.


I just had to include this since some may say this prophecy has been fulfilled. Again, present day Babylon is Iraq and the fact that people live there at the present time shows that this prophecy has yet to be fulfilled.

“Babylon must fall because of Israel’s slain,
just as the slain in all the earth
have fallen because of Babylon


So why now must Babylon be destroyed? It says because of the Israelis that have been killed. Who may I ask kills Israelis? Is it the Muslim nations or the US. In addition, it also says not only because of the slain in Israel, but also because of the slain in all of the earth. Could this be referring to the Christians who have been slaughtered in Egypt and other places in Africa. Or maybe a reference to the Hindus that Muslims have slaughtered in India?

Even if Babylon ascends to the heavens
and fortifies her lofty stronghold,
I will send destroyers against her,”
declares the Lord.


For the Lord is a God of retribution;
he will repay in full.


God is mighty angry at someone! It seems more a judgment against the Muslim nations than a judgment against the United States. Just because the rulers of this nation have turned their backs on God, I sincerely doubt He would destroy a nation of believers because of the corrupt people in power who, if there is truth to the rumors, are only in power because of fraud and deception.

Re: America is truly Babylon - End is coming soon
There's so much confusion on this forum. Everyone is running around in every direction saying their interpretation is the truth.
 Quoting: Generation Doom


the main running in every direction I see is that when truth appears, there's panic, coming in the guise of disapproval of "too many versions". When actually they might just mean "ONE too many versions"

Just to finish up-

Carrying Out God’s Thought

19 How does Jehovah execute this judgment? This may be illustrated by Jehovah’s action against his apostate people in ancient times, concerning whom he said: “In the prophets of Jerusalem I have seen horrible things, committing adultery and walking in falsehood; and they have strengthened the hands of evildoers in order that they should not return, each one from his own badness. To me all of them have become like Sodom, and the inhabitants of her like Gomorrah.” (Jeremiah 23:14) In 607 B.C.E., Jehovah used Nebuchadnezzar to ‘strip off the garments, take away the beautiful articles, and leave naked and nude’ that spiritually adulterous city. (Ezekiel 23:4, 26, 29) Jerusalem of that time was a pattern of Christendom today, and as John saw in earlier visions, Jehovah will administer to Christendom and the rest of false religion a similar punishment. The desolated, uninhabited condition of Jerusalem after 607 B.C.E. shows what religious Christendom will look like after being stripped of her wealth and shamefully exposed. And the rest of Babylon the Great will fare no better.

20 Again Jehovah uses human rulers in executing judgment. “For God put it into their hearts to carry out his thought, even to carry out their one thought by giving their kingdom to the wild beast, until the words of God will have been accomplished.” (Revelation 17:17) What is God’s “thought”? To arrange for the executioners of Babylon the Great to band together, in order to destroy her completely. Of course, the rulers’ motive in attacking her will be to carry out their own “one thought.” They will feel that it is in their nationalistic interests to turn upon the great harlot. They may come to view the continued existence of organized religion within their boundaries as a threat to their sovereignty. But Jehovah will actually be maneuvering matters; they will carry out his thought by destroying his age-old, adulterous enemy at one stroke!—Compare Jeremiah 7:8-11, 34.

21 Yes, the nations will use the scarlet-colored wild beast, the United Nations, in destroying Babylon the Great. They do not act on their own initiative, for Jehovah puts it into their hearts “even to carry out their one thought by giving their kingdom to the wild beast.” When the time comes, the nations will evidently see the need to strengthen the United Nations. They will give it teeth, as it were, lending it whatever authority and power they possess so that it can turn upon false religion and fight successfully against her “until the words of God will have been accomplished.” Thus, the ancient harlot will come to her complete end. And good riddance to her!

22 As if to emphasize the certainty of Jehovah’s execution of judgment on the world empire of false religion, the angel concludes his testimony by saying: “And the woman whom you saw means the great city that has a kingdom over the kings of the earth.” (Revelation 17:18) Like Babylon of Belshazzar’s time, Babylon the Great has “been weighed in the balance and found wanting.” (Daniel 5:27, The New English Bible) Her execution will be swift and final. And how do Jehovah’s Witnesses respond to the unraveling of the mystery of the great harlot and of the scarlet-colored wild beast? They show zeal in proclaiming Jehovah’s day of judgment, while answering “with graciousness” sincere searchers for truth. (Colossians 4:5, 6; Revelation 17:3, 7) As our next chapter will show, all who are desirous of surviving when the great harlot is executed must act, and act quickly!
