The Soon Coming Judgment Of God Upon America and How To Escape It 28
A Prophetic Picture of Babylon
Babylon was birthed from a mother nation and she is the last of the superpowers to be
birthed: 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. (Jeremiah 50:12)
America won its independence from England and is the last of the superpowers to be birthed.
The symbol for England is a lion and the symbol for the US is an eagle. In a vision Daniel saw
Babylon as a lion with eagle's wings (Dan. 7:4). Ezekiel also describes Babylon as an eagle (see
Jeremiah states that Babylon is a nation of racial diversity: A sword is upon... all the
mingled people that are in the midst of her; and they shall become as women, a sword is upon
her treasures; and they shall be robbed. (Jeremiah 50:36-37). The US is well known for being
the most racially diverse nation on earth; it is also the wealthiest nation on earth.
The old testament tells us that among all the nations of earth, Babylon, like the US, is
conspicuously splendorous, she is the glory of the kingdoms. The whole earth admires and
longs for her luxurious lifestyle; she is the praise of the whole earth. Babylon is also a nation
that indulge in pleasure. This means not only that they have the resources to indulge in pleasure
but also the leisure time; she is given to pleasure and lives carelessly.
And Babylon, the glory of kingdoms, the beauty of the Chaldees
excellency... (Isaiah 13:19)
How... the praise of the whole earth surprised! how is Babylon become
an astonishment among the nations! (Jeremiah 51:41)
Therefore hear now this, thou that art given to pleasures, that dwellest
carelessly... (Isaiah 47:8)
Babylon dwells upon many waters, and is abundant in treasures(Jeremiah 51:13).
The treasures seems to refer to Babylons natural resources. The US enjoys one of the most
abundant reserves of natural resources in all the world including: oil, natural gas, coal, timber,
gold, silver, minerals and metal ores. Although Babylon is rich in natural resources, she lusts
after the natural resources of other nations. The prophet writes concerning Babylon: thine end is
come, and the measure of thy covetousness. (Jeremiah 51:13) In a later chapter we will discuss
a secret National Security Council memorandum, National Security Study Memorandum 200
(Implications Of Worldwide Population Growth For US Security And Overseas Interests), which
discusses the need to control the population growths of strategic third world nations so we can
exploit their natural resources (i.e. oil and minerals).
The US is certainly situated on many waters. Of all the nations in the world, the US is
uniquely situated with approximately 5,051 miles of coastline.2 To the west is the Pacific Ocean,
the Atlantic Ocean is to the East, the Great Lakes are to the north and the Gulf of Mexico is to
Having thousands of miles of coastline and a great many deep water ports is very
