Babylon Rumbling - 12-6-2013
Jesus told his followers describing the last days: Matthew 24:7-8 7 "For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and in various places there will be famines and earthquakes. 8 "But all these things are merely the beginning of birth pangs.
Looking at the Emergency Disaster Info service map you can track the rumblings going on around the world about as current as it gets. Right now there's some quakes in the 4's around South and Central America, East of Australia in Tonga, in South Asia, Indonesia and the Phillipines, while you see just how much activity is taking place in California and Alaska, along the U.S.'s western coast.
My wife lived for a few years out in California, and she told me that people out there are used to the constant quakes... yet, it seems to indicate that all is not right. It seems to be a quite volatile region. And it seems many have been having visions and dreams of tsunamis striking and destroying the west coast.
Many now believe that the U.S. is the Babylon spoken of in Revelation, which one can see pretty easily in Revelation 17:18! And the Bible speaks of the destruction of this mystery Harlot (both East and West Coasts). America started as a nation with a covenant to God, made by the Pilgrims, who had fled to this new land to live out their Protestant Faith and teach the good news of salvation to man! But look at us today! If any country in the world could be considered a harlot from her first love, it's America! Our country has truly prostituted itself to the lovers of the world, and her gods, turning our backs on the one true God, and our leaders against the very nation that is dearest to God (Gen. 12:3)!
Christians have for decades tried to find the U.S.A. in Bible prophecy, and at the end of the age, we begin to see it. The only hope is with repentance, people turning from their sinful ways, and confessing their guilt before the Almighty God, who is gracious and merciful, and desiring to forgive so that we might know His love! A great little study on the end-times Babylon, which I have just found, and am enjoying reading as I sit here, (iced in) can be seen here.
