There's people who ask, where's America in the Bible but I have seen people say America is the daughter of Babylon or the false prophet or the political part of mystery Babylon. Here's an article that proposes America is the daughter of Babylon.

Is America the Daughter of Babylon?


6 “Up, up! Flee from the land of the north,” says the Lord; “for I have spread you abroad like the four winds of heaven,” says the Lord. 7 “Up, Zion! Escape, you who dwell with the daughter of Babylon.”

-Zechariah 2:6, 7; Land of the North clearly reveals that the Daughter of Babylon is a physical Nation among the world associated to a direction where she lies. This Nation also has Zion held captive if Elohim is telling Zion to escape her. Also if she is considered a daughter, then this Nation will likely have a mother country she came from.

-Jeremiah 51:6–8; This Nation has sway over the whole Earth and the rest of the Nations, this indicates that she will be a powerful Nation among the world. She will be destroyed suddenly, this passage ends with a potential hope for her healing. Some may be confused that this could be talking of the ancient Babylon, go back and read verses 1–5 in this chapter, you will see that both Israel and Judah are spoken of in verse 5. We know that ancient Babylon took captive the Jews (House of Judah) but only the few remnant left of the House of Israel from the Assyrian captivity. The next time Israel and Judah are seen together is the end times, both of them captive in the Daughter of Babylon so we know this is an end time prophecy.


blacksimba.medium.com...

This daughter of Babylon sounds like America. What are some of the other candidates? Here's more from the book, "America The Daughter of Babylon:


The biblical prophecies concerning the fall of Babylon, as found in the books of Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel and Revelations have never been fulfilled in history. Thus, we look for another Babylon. A nation which will fit the biblical description, and exist during the correct time period. The following is a partial list of the identifying descriptions of this other Babylon.

1. This nation will exist at the same time as the restoration of a Jewish state in the Land of Israel.

2. The national symbol will be an EAGLE.

3. She is the greatest economic (wealthy) nation in the world.

4. She is the world’s largest consumer nation, purchasing the world’s manufactured goods.

5. She is the world’s most powerful military nation.

6. She is a nation of mingled people. People from many nations woven together.

7. She is a golden cup in the Lord’s hand. A nation used to bless the rest of the world.

8. A nation where the Jewish people will immigrate and prosper.

The re-establishment of the Jewish state took place in 1948. Thus, the nation described above existed at that time, and also today. There is a nation existing today which fits the biblical description. That nation is America.


www.scribd.com...

I read some of the book and it makes a great case that America is the daughter of Babylon. If it's not America, which other nation could be the daughter of Babylon?

The Bible also says:

Jeremiah 50:3 For out of the north there cometh up a nation against her, which shall make her land desolate, and none shall dwell therein: they shall remove, they shall depart, both man and beast.

4 In those days, and in that time, saith the Lord, the children of Israel shall come, they and the children of Judah together, going and weeping: they shall go, and seek the Lord their God.

9 For, lo, I will raise and cause to come up against Babylon an assembly of great nations from the north country: and they shall set themselves in array against her; from thence she shall be taken: their arrows shall be as of a mighty expert man; none shall return in vain.

12 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.


It says this daughter of Babylon will have a mother(Britain) and it would be the hindermost(youngest, last of) the nations.

Here's what hindermost means in Hebrew.

achărîyth, akh-ar-eeth'; from H310; the last or end, hence, the future; also posterity:—(last, latter) end (time), hinder (utter) -most, length, posterity, remnant, residue, reward.

So this will be a great nation of immigrants towards the end times.

It also predicted terrorist attacks and there may be more devastating terrorist attacks on the horizon.

Jeremiah 51:1 Thus saith the Lord; Behold, I will raise up against Babylon, and against them that dwell in the midst of them that rise up against me, a destroying wind;

2 And will send unto Babylon fanners, that shall fan her, and shall empty her land: for in the day of trouble they shall be against her round about.

3 Against him that bendeth let the archer bend his bow, and against him that lifteth himself up in his brigandine: and spare ye not her young men; destroy ye utterly all her host.


The NIV says:

51:1 This is what the Lord says:

“See, I will stir up the spirit of a destroyer
against Babylon and the people of Leb Kamai.
2 I will send foreigners to Babylon
to winnow her and to devastate her land;
they will oppose her on every side
in the day of her disaster.
3 Let not the archer string his bow,
nor let him put on his armor.
Do not spare her young men;
completely destroy her army.
4 They will fall down slain in Babylon,
fatally wounded in her streets.


This is the Hebrew word for fanners:

zûwr, zoor; a primitive root; to turn aside (especially for lodging); hence to be a foreigner, strange, profane; specifically (active participle) to commit adultery:—(come from) another (man, place), fanner, go away, (e-) strange(-r, thing, woman).

To fan in hebrew means to winnow:

zârâh, zaw-raw'; a primitive root (compare H2114); to toss about; by implication, to diffuse, winnow:—cast away, compass, disperse, fan, scatter (away), spread, strew, winnow.

If America is the daughter of Babylon, we will be hit by more terrorist attacks before we're bombed by Russia, the Country from the North. On top of that, there will be viruses, horrible weather and food shortages.

Just look at what's going on with immigration and refugees.

Finally rejecting Trump-era immigrant policy, Biden goes all in on open borders

www.washingtonexaminer.com...

Afghan Refugees in the U.S.: How They’re Vetted, Where They’re Going and How to Help

Tens of thousands of Afghans are arriving in the U.S. after being evacuated from Kabul


www.wsj.com...

This article says 65,000. The sad thing is, 99% of the refugees can simply want to escape Afghanistan and have a better life in America. If 1% are terrorist wanting to attack America, that's 650 people. If 5%, over 3,000 people attacking soft and hard targets plus and terrorist that sneak through the southern and northern borders.

Any thoughts?

Some of what it says could also be interpreted as times during the initial European immigration of N. America. Those immigrants wiping out all inhabitants rather than the current ones. Maybe that time has already passed. Just something that popped into my head as I was reading your post. The other way fits as well. Good OP food for thought anyway.

I agree completely, but you left out Ezekiel 38 & 39.

A Prophecy against Gog - Ezekiel 38

1And the word of the LORD came to me, saying, 2“Son of man, set your face against Gog of the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal.a Prophesy against him 3and declare that this is what the Lord GOD says: Behold, I am against you, O Gog, chief prince of Meshech and Tubal.b 4I will turn you around, put hooks in your jaws, and bring you out with all your army—your horses, your horsemen in full armor, and a great company armed with shields and bucklers, all brandishing their swords. 5Persia, Cush,c and Put will accompany them, all with shields and helmets, 6as well as Gomer with all its troops, and Beth-togarmah from the far north with all its troops—the many nations with you.

7Get ready; prepare yourself, you and all your company gathered around you; you will be their guard. 8After a long time you will be summoned. In the latter years you will enter a land that has recovered from war, whose people were gathered from many nations to the mountains of Israel, which had long been desolate. They had been brought out from the nations, and all now dwell securely. 9You and all your troops, and many peoples with you will go up, advancing like a thunderstorm; you will be like a cloud covering the land.

10This is what the Lord GOD says: On that day, thoughts will arise in your mind, and you will devise an evil plan. 11You will say, ‘I will go up against a land of unwalled villages; I will come against a tranquil people who dwell securely, all of them living without walls or bars or gates— 12in order to seize the spoil and carry off the plunder, to turn a hand against the desolate places now inhabited and against a people gathered from the nations, who have acquired livestock and possessions and who live at the center of the land.’

13Sheba and Dedan and the merchants of Tarshish with all its villagesd will ask, ‘Have you come to capture the plunder? Have you assembled your hordes to carry away loot, to make off with silver and gold, to take cattle and goods, to seize great spoil?’

14Therefore prophesy, son of man, and tell Gog that this is what the Lord GOD says: On that day when My people Israel are dwelling securely, will you not take notice of this?e 15And you will come from your place out of the far north—you and many peoples with you, all riding horses—a mighty horde, a huge army. 16You will advance against My people Israel like a cloud covering the land. It will happen in the latter days, O Gog, that I will bring you against My land, so that the nations may know Me when I show Myself holy in you before their eyes.

17This is what the Lord GOD says: Are you the one of whom I have spoken in former days through My servants, the prophets of Israel, who in those times prophesied for years that I would bring you against them? 18Now on that day when Gog comes against the land of Israel, declares the Lord GOD, My wrath will flare up.

19In My zeal and fiery rage I proclaim that on that day there will be a great earthquake in the land of Israel. 20The fish of the sea, the birds of the air, the beasts of the field, every creature that crawls upon the ground, and all mankind on the face of the earth will tremble at My presence. The mountains will be thrown down, the cliffs will collapse, and every wall will fall to the ground.

21And I will summon a sword against Gog on all My mountains, declares the Lord GOD, and every man’s sword will be against his brother. 22I will execute judgment upon him with plague and bloodshed. I will pour out torrents of rain, hailstones, fire, and sulfur on him and on his troops and on the many nations with him. 23I will magnify and sanctify Myself, and will reveal Myself in the sight of many nations. Then they will know that I am the LORD.

Ezekiel 39

The Slaughter of Gog’s Armies

1“As for you, O son of man, prophesy against Gog and declare that this is what the Lord GOD says: Behold, I am against you, O Gog, chief prince of Meshech and Tubal.a 2I will turn you around, drive you along, bring you up from the far north, and send you against the mountains of Israel. 3Then I will strike the bow from your left hand and dash down the arrows from your right hand.

4On the mountains of Israel you will fall—you and all your troops and the nations with you. I will give you as food to every kind of ravenous bird and wild beast. 5You will fall in the open field, for I have spoken, declares the Lord GOD.

6I will send fire on Magog and on those who dwell securely in the coastlands, and they will know that I am the LORD. 7So I will make My holy name known among My people Israel and will no longer allow it to be profaned. Then the nations will know that I am the LORD, the Holy One in Israel. 8Yes, it is coming, and it will surely happen, declares the Lord GOD. This is the day of which I have spoken.

9Then those who dwell in the cities of Israel will go out, kindle fires, and burn up the weapons—the bucklers and shields, the bows and arrows, the clubs and spears. For seven years they will use them for fuel. 10They will not gather wood from the countryside or cut it from the forests, for they will use the weapons for fuel. They will loot those who looted them and plunder those who plundered them, declares the Lord GOD.

11And on that day I will give Gog a burial place in Israel, the Valley of the Travelers, east of the Sea.b It will block those who travel through, because Gog and all his hordes will be buried there. So it will be called the Valley of Hamon-gog.c 12For seven months the house of Israel will be burying them in order to cleanse the land. 13All the people of the land will bury them, and it will bring them renown on the day I display My glory,d declares the Lord GOD.

14And men will be employed to continually pass through the land to cleanse it by burying the invaders who remain on the ground. At the end of the seven months they will begin their search. 15As they pass through the land, anyone who sees a human bone will set up a pillar next to it, until the gravediggers have buried it in the Valley of Hamon-gog. 16(Even the city will be named Hamonah.e) And so they will cleanse the land.

17And as for you, son of man, this is what the Lord GOD says: Call out to every kind of bird and to every beast of the field: ‘Assemble and come together from all around to the sacrificial feast that I am preparing for you, a great feast on the mountains of Israel. There you will eat flesh and drink blood. 18You will eat the flesh of the mighty and drink the blood of the princes of the earth as though they were rams, lambs, goats, and bulls—all the fattened animals of Bashan. 19At the sacrifice I am preparing, you will eat fat until you are gorged and drink blood until you are drunk. 20And at My table you will eat your fill of horses and riders, of mighty men and warriors of every kind,’ declares the Lord GOD.

21I will display My glory among the nations, and all the nations will see the judgment that I execute and the hand that I lay upon them. 22From that day forward the house of Israel will know that I am the LORD their God. 23And the nations will know that the house of Israel went into exile for their iniquity, because they were unfaithful to Me. So I hid My face from them and delivered them into the hands of their enemies, so that they all fell by the sword.

Some believe the United States to be "The Great Whore of Babylon".

Babylon the Great, commonly known as the Whore of Babylon, refers to both a symbolic female figure and place of evil mentioned in the Book of Revelation in the Bible. Her full title is stated in Revelation 17 (verse 5) as Mystery, Babylon the Great, the Mother of Prostitutes and Abominations of the Earth (Ancient Greek: μυστήριον, Βαβυλὼν ἡ μεγάλη, ἡ μήτηρ τῶν πορνῶν καὶ τῶν βδελυγμάτων τῆς γῆς; transliterated mystērion, Babylōn hē megalē, hē mētēr tōn pornōn kai tōn bdelygmatōn tēs gēs).
The "great whore" of the Book of Revelation is featured in chapter 17:

1 And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters:
2 With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.
3 So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.
4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:
5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.
9 And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.
10 And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he comes, he must continue a short space.
11 And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goes into perdition.
12 And the ten horns which thou saw are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.
15 And he said unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.
18 And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigns over the kings of the earth.
— Revelation 17:1–18

In modern terms the US is indeed the closest city and New York in particular has a statue of Ishtar the Whore of Babylon whose followers sold sex in temples and worse in the form of the Statue of Liberty which was actually based on Ishtar and created by a French Freemason.


There is also an identical statue but much smaller and made of stone in Paris on the Seine so it could also in that argument reference Paris and also since Britain often portrayed by Britannia a female Goddess was a nation that sat on Many waters and ruled over many people it could also mean Britain.

The best fit today is however the US albeit not the entire nation but New York in particular though the city of London is also a very close match and about just as close with the City of London being a den of thieves in most peoples opinion and also being probably more important to the international financial industry than any other group in the world with the bulk of the worlds currency transactions passing through the city of London.

These days though Britain does not make all the merchants happy, the US currently does and China is just as important these days to those same merchants though more for exports from that nation than import's to it.

But perhaps we are all looking in the wrong direction, India and the nations of Saudi Arabia are positioning themselves to be much more financially influential and it could indeed mean a literal New Babylon though perhaps at least not yet in Iraq were the old Babylon partially rebuilt by Saddam Hussein (whom tried to immortalize himself by having his name stamped on the new brick's) once stood.

It could even be a nation we currently do not know as every century has it's new Babylon.

Still currently the very best fit is New York and the United States that are arguably it's child since so many migrants to the US passed through New York with even Boston not even coming a close second on that point.

Seems to me a better question would be, why would America be in the Bible?

Since the nation did not exist when both testaments came about i cant see why it should.

That's very narrow minded thinking, prophesies in the bible were about the future. They didn't have to be about a present time or place. Although the U.S. was not known as a country, many people believe that the North/ South America, Arctic and Antarctic were known about far back in history.

Might want to read Mathew 24:14.

Seems rather logical to me.


How do you suppose a book written 1000s of years in the past should reference nations and continents that were not even known?

And a book written by man mind you with all his fear and fallibility laid bare.

Does the Bible have any maps that mention or show the Americas, i don't think so.

As to to prophecy, well that's self fulfilling really, because the person who believes such resulting behaviours align to fulfil the belief.

If as above God said that all your horses and soldiers with swords and shields would be drawn out then it has either already happened or will be happening a long time from now - we haven't warred with those resources for over a century and would take an ELE sized event to put us back there.

Babylon was said to be a great nation or city, and maybe one of the first. Babylon was also an enemy state to that of Israel, and destroyed the first Jewish temple, and in some scriptures, enslaved them. Thing is it been said some Jews chose exile, while others became assimilated in their culture, which is Polytheistic, an blasphemous to Judaism Monotheism.

I believe the Great Mystery of Babylon is how it rose an fell, which must of been common, but forgotten knowledge to an extent. Then there are the other three beast in Daniel's Vision.

Hence why it gets applied to Rome, and the Vatican, allegedly, according to the Bible.

The Bible was written by man, yes...but every word that made it into the final version has been fully approved and given by God. Otherwise...it wouldn't be against sin. It would be saying sin is ok!

Can you prove that?

Or do you simply believe such because you have been conditioned to do so?

Don't know about sin but to err is human, that's a given.

It's weird how these obscure allegorical references want to act like prophecy but aren't quite coherent enough for the people who need to see the warning to actually understand what they are being warned about. Prophecies are only as useful as language skills of the author who pens them, and these authors all write like they have no idea who they are doing it for. Not very psychic at all.

The US will be destroyed in one hours time. The whole world will file by in sorrow. They will say, " who will buy our wares now".

I saw this many years ago. Decades ago. I believe it was a vision. A scary one at that. The smoke went up forever. That's nuclear. Perfect time to attack, would be when you had a demented, old, Alzheimer's patient running the country, don't you think?



The amazing thing about the Bible is that it is the only inspired writing of the Living God, and is the only writing that is always correct, regardless of how many thousands of years in advance the information was foretold.

I think it was Ezekiel, that God was telling the future to, and the poor guy was about scratching his head, thinking what the heck? There's not even anybody here." And God told him "just write down what I told you". And sure enough, nations formed and the things God told him came about, exactly as specified.

Yes, the statue of Liberty is an idol.

The fall of Babylon was foretold by a hand appearing and 'writing on a wall'. We have all heard the term, the writing on the wall foretelling something. Well I am not religious, but I think the story is pretty good, and the Iron Maiden video where they are dancing around this exact subject is also very good. Video just came out and includes tons of references to the end time.

So here is the video www.youtube.com...

And here below is the story from the bible the video references, and talk of Babylon and comparing America and the developed world to the modern fall of Babylon.

1 Belshazzar the king made a great feast to a thousand of his lords, and drank wine before the thousand.

2 Belshazzar, whiles he tasted the wine, commanded to bring the golden and silver vessels which his father Nebuchadnezzar had taken out of the temple which was in Jerusalem; that the king, and his princes, his wives, and his concubines, might drink therein.

3 Then they brought the golden vessels that were taken out of the temple of the house of God which was at Jerusalem; and the king, and his princes, his wives, and his concubines, drank in them.

4 They drank wine, and praised the gods of gold, and of silver, of brass, of iron, of wood, and of stone.

5 In the same hour came forth fingers of a man's hand, and wrote over against the candlestick upon the plaister of the wall of the king's palace: and the king saw the part of the hand that wrote.

6 Then the king's countenance was changed, and his thoughts troubled him, so that the joints of his loins were loosed, and his knees smote one against another.

7 The king cried aloud to bring in the astrologers, the Chaldeans, and the soothsayers. And the king spake, and said to the wise men of Babylon, Whosoever shall read this writing, and shew me the interpretation thereof, shall be clothed with scarlet, and have a chain of gold about his neck, and shall be the third ruler in the kingdom.

8 Then came in all the king's wise men: but they could not read the writing, nor make known to the king the interpretation thereof.

9 Then was king Belshazzar greatly troubled, and his countenance was changed in him, and his lords were astonied.

10 Now the queen, by reason of the words of the king and his lords, came into the banquet house: and the queen spake and said, O king, live for ever: let not thy thoughts trouble thee, nor let thy countenance be changed:

11 There is a man in thy kingdom, in whom is the spirit of the holy gods; and in the days of thy father light and understanding and wisdom, like the wisdom of the gods, was found in him; whom the king Nebuchadnezzar thy father, the king, I say, thy father, made master of the magicians, astrologers, Chaldeans, and soothsayers;

12 Forasmuch as an excellent spirit, and knowledge, and understanding, interpreting of dreams, and shewing of hard sentences, and dissolving of doubts, were found in the same Daniel, whom the king named Belteshazzar: now let Daniel be called, and he will shew the interpretation.

13 Then was Daniel brought in before the king. And the king spake and said unto Daniel, Art thou that Daniel, which art of the children of the captivity of Judah, whom the king my father brought out of Jewry?

14 I have even heard of thee, that the spirit of the gods is in thee, and that light and understanding and excellent wisdom is found in thee.

15 And now the wise men, the astrologers, have been brought in before me, that they should read this writing, and make known unto me the interpretation thereof: but they could not shew the interpretation of the thing:

16 And I have heard of thee, that thou canst make interpretations, and dissolve doubts: now if thou canst read the writing, and make known to me the interpretation thereof, thou shalt be clothed with scarlet, and have a chain of gold about thy neck, and shalt be the third ruler in the kingdom.

17 Then Daniel answered and said before the king, Let thy gifts be to thyself, and give thy rewards to another; yet I will read the writing unto the king, and make known to him the interpretation.

18 O thou king, the most high God gave Nebuchadnezzar thy father a kingdom, and majesty, and glory, and honour:

19 And for the majesty that he gave him, all people, nations, and languages, trembled and feared before him: whom he would he slew; and whom he would he kept alive; and whom he would he set up; and whom he would he put down.

20 But when his heart was lifted up, and his mind hardened in pride, he was deposed from his kingly throne, and they took his glory from him:

21 And he was driven from the sons of men; and his heart was made like the beasts, and his dwelling was with the wild asses: they fed him with grass like oxen, and his body was wet with the dew of heaven; till he knew that the most high God ruled in the kingdom of men, and that he appointeth over it whomsoever he will.

22 And thou his son, O Belshazzar, hast not humbled thine heart, though thou knewest all this;

23 But hast lifted up thyself against the LORD of heaven; and they have brought the vessels of his house before thee, and thou, and thy lords, thy wives, and thy concubines, have drunk wine in them; and thou hast praised the gods of silver, and gold, of brass, iron, wood, and stone, which see not, nor hear, nor know: and the God in whose hand thy breath is, and whose are all thy ways, hast thou not glorified:

24 Then was the part of the hand sent from him; and this writing was written.

25 And this is the writing that was written, MENE, MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN.

26 This is the interpretation of the thing: MENE; God hath numbered thy kingdom, and finished it.

27 TEKEL; Thou art weighed in the balances, and art found wanting.

28 PERES; Thy kingdom is divided, and given to the Medes and Persians.
