Second Edition Preface
This book was originally published in 2015 and since then has been slightly revised several times, but now is the first official Second Edition.
This series of books is the result of 35 years of research and piecing it all together like a giant jigsaw puzzle. About every two years I have put out an updated edition with small improvements, with the last update being in Jan. 2020, so why a new edition even before 2021? Because of a major change.
The general interpretation is all the same; the Rapture still happens seconds before the 7th Trumpet, and the nuclear war still follows, etc. The change is the time period of the 7 Bowls of Wrath. I had all 7 Bowls taking only 2 weeks to complete, but that was a mistake, I now realize that they must take 2-3 years to complete.
This change means a few other things change, but it is still a small percentage of the total interpretation.
Like Apostle Paul said, we see through a glass darkly, and the closer we get to the fulfillment of the Trumpets and Bowls the clearer things will get. When I first published Book 3 in 2015, I did not know the cause of the coming Civil War, but we can all now see from where it is coming.
I previously called my interpretation Pre-Wrath yet Post-Trib because all the Bowls of Wrath took place at the end of the Great Tribulation, so now my interpretation can be classified as Mid-Trib yet Pre-Wrath, because it is near but not exactly in the middle of what would be a 7-year period.
Only in general concepts do my books look anything like what others are teaching, because all the details are different. In previous editions of these books, I said:
I don’t claim to be infallible; I may be wrong on some point. And the closer we get to the end the clearer the picture will become, so I may need to make more changes in the future.
So now I am making a change, and I hope this is the last major change.
If you are looking for an analysis of Babylon the Great, to determine if it might be the United States of America, then this book is for you.
One of the most difficult things I had to do in my years of research into Bible prophecy, was come to the realization that America is Babylon the Great (BTG). I did not want to believe it. I resisted because it means that America will be destroyed in a nuclear holocaust. But after years of study, the evidence forced me to that conclusion. Then I realized that most nations of the world will suffer great destruction to one degree or another, based on their sins. So why wouldn’t America suffer for its sins?
During the past 10 years, I saw such a great decline in America that I can now easily see, not only why America will be destroyed, but also why it must be destroyed.
I also came to understand that Babylon the Great (BTG) is not all of America, it is ONLY wicked America. God will destroy wicked America, but he will save a righteous remnant from those who do not go in the Rapture. That said, many righteous will also die because they are living in wicked cities, or living in an area that will receive natural disasters, and they have been warned but do not move away; such as living on the coast where a tsunami is certain to hit. Or near the Mississippi River which is going to widen greatly after a huge earthquake that will split open the Great Lakes. The prophecies have been widely told for many years, but people are not moving. Some of those prophecies are included in this book.
However, America will NOT be destroyed before the start of the Great Tribulation (GT), which is so often claimed, but will only be wounded with Civil War and the east coast tsunami. Then will be nuked and invaded after the beast of Revelation comes to power. The nuclear war and invasion of America, which are the 7-Bowls of Wrath, is done by the beast (a Revived Islamic Empire) and its allies (Russia and China and North Korea) in its attempt to totally destroy Christianity and the Christians in America. They will occupy much of the USA for 2-3 years, then Christ returns with massive asteroid impacts to save the world by destroying the evil that is threatening to take over the world.
Many people misinterpret Babylon the Great (BTG) harlot, prostitute, in Revelation 17 and 18. She has been interpreted as the Roman Catholic Church, the Protestant Church, America, Jerusalem, Islam, Saudi Arabia, and who knows what else.
I will provide a mountain of evidence and explain in detail how America is political Babylon, which is the government of the United States of America; cultural Babylon, which is the polluted culture of America that is created by movies, TV, music, and education; and economic Babylon that is capitalism which is headquartered in America; America being the premier capitalist nation in the world. If Babylon is also a city, then it is New York City.
An argument could be made that there is also a religious Babylon, but if so, then that has been well covered already: see the videos, Tares Among the Wheat, and A Lamp in the Dark on youtube.com other sites.
Like my other three books on Bible prophecy, there are a lot of new insights in this book that are not found in any other book on Babylon the Great and America. I will also discuss the Old Testament references to an end-time Babylon, which is not a rebuilt city in Iraq, but can only be the same as Mystery Babylon the Great Harlot in Revelation.
And I will discuss how America was founded with a de facto covenant with God (“de facto” means being in effect though not formally recognized). But America also is chosen of God because it was one of the nations that God promised to Abraham. Yes, God promised Abraham more than one nation! It is likely the main reason that America became the greatest and most powerful nation the world has ever seen.
We will discuss how America will be destroyed in a nuclear holocaust and be invaded, but Christ will return to save America and civilization from total destruction. I also show how America will be split into three parts by a huge global earthquake (Rev. 16) after it betrays Israel. One split will be along the Mississippi River.
If you do not believe in dreams and visions, then you will not like this book because I include dreams and visions, from George Washington to the present-day, about America and its future destruction. Some of the prophecies say that America will have another civil war, which allows it to be nuked and invaded. I believe we are seeing the start of it now, which began with the attempt to take down a duly elected President anyway they can. And has progressed to calls for the destruction of Capitalism and democracy by mobs of Marxist/Communist anarchists.
This book also includes a discussion of Gog and Magog of Ezekiel 38, which gives us details for two wars, not just one. One will be an invasion of Israel; the other will be an invasion of America.
With everything that is happening in the Middle East, some readers may wonder how it is that Russia could join with a Revived Ottoman Empire during WW3; currently, Turkey is allied with America, but lots of evidence shows that it is turning toward radical Islam (BK2). And Russia and Turkey have been making deals together. When Turkey becomes the Revived Ottoman Empire, the U.S. will cut ties with it, so it will likely become allied with Russia. And because of global economic issues, Russia could return to Communism; though I doubt it will include atheism, as the Russian Orthodox Church has grown greatly within the Russian military.
This is Book 3 of the Bible Prophecy Revealed series of four books on Bible prophecy, which is a complete teaching on Bible prophecy. If you liked the other books, you will like this one. If you did not like the others, you will not like this one. You will get the most out of this book if you have already read books 1 & 2, but it is not required, as I occasionally give brief information relating to subjects found in the other books when it is necessary to understand what I am discussing.
The order of end-time events is also revealed to be very different from what anyone else is teaching today. In the appendix I discuss the misinterpretation of Walid Shoebat and Joel Richardson, showing that their claim that BTG is Saudi Arabia/Mecca is very wrong.
