The United States In Bible Prophecy
The United States is mentioned with outstanding clarity in Bible Prophecy, but few people are able to recognize it's identity. The Ten Kingdoms are not developing in Europe as people are taught to expect by most popular religious sources, but already exist in another area of the world, and few people recognize them. What is the importance of this? Because the Bible explains that the Kingdom of God will arrive following the rise of an eighth major world empire symbolized as the Second Beast of Revelation 13, and during the simultaneous reign of Ten Kingdoms symbolized as ten horns or crowns. When these come into existence, it is a sign that the arrival of the Kingdom of God is very close, and because these kingdoms already exist, the Kingdom of God is much closer to arrival than most people think.
"And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever"- Daniel 2: 44.
The European Union cannot be the location of the Ten Kingdoms. This idea is based on a theory that the Roman Empire is the forth beast/empire of Daniel, and that the Ten Kingdoms, represented by the ten horns, have their beginnings in Europe, in a reconstructed Roman Empire. There are twenty seven member nations in the E.U., and twenty seven is a number far greater than ten that the Bible very clearly defines over and over again. Yet, despite the obvious fact that there are more than ten member nations in the E.U., and the fact that Revelation 17, explains that the Ten Kingdoms will arise from an empire following that of the Roman Empire, these beliefs are still clung to as reality. However, when you dispose of these flawed understandings, the biblical identity of the U. S., and the Ten Kingdoms spring prophetically into view.
Arrival of The Kingdom of God
The arrival of the Kingdom of God is a literal event that will soon take place in the future of humanity, and it will forever alter reality as we know it. It is the end of mankind's sojourn in this sorrowful realm of birth and death, and the ascension to eternal life. It is an event that will be led by the mass arrival of extraterrestrial beings biblically referred to as Angels, and when Jesus Christ returns. It is mentioned numerous times in both the Old and New Testament Bible, and is in fact the very purpose and foundation upon which the Bible is based.
The Bible is a prophetic vision of empires, and nations, that lead up to the arrival of the Kingdom of God, and is a chronology of empires, symbolically represented, spanning the entire history of humanity. It describes the development of eight major empires, and ten smaller kingdoms, that precede the arrival of the Kingdom of God, the final Kingdom that will reign upon the Earth. The first seven empires are represented by the seven heads of the First Beast of Revelation 13. These seven empires have already come and gone. They were the Babylonian, Media Persian, Assyrian, Egyptian, Grecian, Roman and British Empires. The eighth empire is represented by the Second Beast of Revelation 13, and is the United States of America.
The Ten Kingdoms that the Bible foretold would arise during the time of the arrival of the Kingdom of God have already been formed, and remain in existence today. No, they are not member states of the European Union; a common misconception by most. This theory is based upon the mistaken notion that the forth beast of Daniel was the Roman Empire, and the Ten Kingdoms must therefore arise from an area of the old Roman Empire. Actually, the Ten Kingdoms are in the area of the ancient Seleucid Empire, as foretold by Daniel , and now exist within eight nations located in the Middle East.
The forth beast of Daniel was not the Roman Empire, because as Daniel describes, "The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces." The Roman Empire was not diverse from rest, and it did not devour the whole earth. However, the British Empire was diverse from all the other previous empires as an island nation with global sea power, and did literally devour the whole earth, because it was the world's first truly global empire, and it did tread down and break up the world into colonies, and later nations. There was a time when the sun never set on the British Empire, and just as Daniel foretold, ten kingdoms, or monarchies, did arise out of this kingdom in the Middle East.
By 1921 the British Empire held sway over a population of about 458 million people, approximately one-quarter of the world's population. It covered about 14.2 million square miles, about a quarter of the Earth's total land area. This certainly qualifies the British Empire as the forth beast of Daniel, and makes it very diverse from all the rest. The ten horns of Daniel arising from the forth beast are in fact the formation of ten Middle East monarchies, by the British Empire after it gained control of The Middle East During World War One, following the defeat of Turkey and the Ottoman Islamic Empire, in conjunction with treaties involving France, and the League of Nations.
The ten kingdoms are.......Syria, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Turkey, Iran, Egypt, (Basrah, Baghdad and Mosul) = Iraq. The Ten Kingdoms were formed as monarchies, after the defeat of Turkey and the Ottoman Islamic Empire by the British Empire during World War I. Later, Basrah, Baghdad, and Mosul were combined to form the nation of Iraq, the little horn that uproots three, just as Daniel had foretold.
The Ten Horns of Daniel are also the Ten Horns and Crowns mentioned within the Book of Revelation, that sit upon the seventh head of the First Beast of Revelation 13, symbolic of ten kingdoms arising from this seventh empire, and remain in existence following it's collapse into a period when an eighth empire represented by the Second Beast of Revelation 13, rules the same area of the Middle East. The reason why the eighth empire is not within the body of the first beast is because it exists in a completely different geographical location, and on an entirely different continent, and is therefore represented as the Second Beast of Revelation 13. It is the North American Continent to be more exact, and the United States is the eighth and last great empire before the arrival of the Kingdom of God.
United States Driven By Ancient Demon Of War
Beast From The Bottomless Pit Rises Again
The Beast That Was, Is Not, Yet Is - Revelation 13&17
But wait, there is still more. Woven within the prophecy of the eight empires, and the Ten Kingdoms, is another prophecy about a demonic manipulation of world events. The Bible explains that Alexander the Great, the first king of the Grecian Empire, was empowered by what is described as the dragon - Revelation 13, which is the same as the beast that ascends from the bottomless pit - Revelation 17, a demon of war and conquest - First Beast of Revelation 13. This is evidenced by the historical feats of Alexander, one of history's greatest conquerors, who forged the Grecian Empire. Alexander was a man whom legend and history describe as having almost miraculous power in his ability to conquer and make war, and of whom it is said wept because there were no more worlds to be conquered.
With the sudden death of Alexander at a very young age, the Grecian Empire, which was the fifth biblically prophesized empire to exist prior to the arrival of the Kingdom of God, was divided into four smaller kingdoms, and wounded the Dragon, because it's plans for world domination via the Grecian Empire were thereby stopped. However, the Dragon returns as the beast that ascends from the bottomless pit during the future reign of an eighth empire. His deadly wound is healed insomuch as the Dragon commences it's original plans for war, conquest, and world domination, by empowering another man who presides over this eighth empire.
Here we have the basis of the so called Anti-christ, another popular misnomer, because he is actually never referred to as Anti-christ in the Bible, but as the Beast. This means of course that because the United States is the eighth empire symbolized by the Second Beast of Revelation 13, the Beast must then be a President of the United States. Perhaps this is not symbolic of a specific man, but any man who becomes President, or is President, during the final closing days of this prophecy, because the eighth empire is covertly controlled by the Dragon. Any man elected President during this time is only the puppet of a secret ruling cabal, that actually gives the orders, and dictates policy, just as Alexander was given his power, and seat, and great authority, by the Dragon, and the same secret ruling cabal.
There are a number of biblical prerequisites for the position of the Beast in this scenario. He must be the most powerful man in the world, and rule over a great world empire. He must be preoccupied with war, military might, and empire building. His name must be associated with money, because nobody can buy or sell without the number of his name. He must also be the ruler of Iraq, the eyes, and the mouth speaking great things within the little horn that uproots three. These are Basrah, Baghdad, and Mosul = Iraq, just as described by Daniel. All of these prerequisites now exist within the definitive confines of the President of the United States.
The President of the United States is the most powerful man on Earth, and rules over a great global military and economic empire. He is commander and chief of the greatest military machine in history. He is preoccupied with war and military might by virtue of the war on terrorism, and a power base that demands he protect, and expand the U.S. Empire. Former Presidents are printed on the face of U.S. currency, the world's reserve currency, and various Presidents represent the denominational amounts, so that nobody on Earth can buy or sell without using U.S. Currency, the value of which is represented by a specific U.S. President, which is the number of his name. For example, Washington is one Dollar, and Franklin is one hundred Dollars, and so on - US Coins and Currency. The President of the United States is also the ruler of Iraq by virtue of conquest and U.S. military occupation.
The biblical prerequisites for the eighth and final empire represented by the Second Beast of Revelation 13, are that it must be the most powerful nation on Earth, dazzling the world with it's greatness, and a warlike nation that masquerades as peaceful, with horns like a lamb but speaks like a dragon. It must be similar to the ancient Grecian Empire, because it forces other nations of the world to remake themselves in the same image or likeness of the first beast that came before it, which was the fifth head of the First Beast of Revelation 13, the Grecian Empire of Alexander the Great. It's monetary and financial system must be dominant worldwide, insomuch as nobody on the earth can buy or sell without the use of it's currency and financial system.
All of the above prerequisites are met within the definitive confines of the United States of America. It is the most powerful nation on Earth, militarily, financially, and economically. Although appearing peaceful on it's exterior, the United States is very warlike, with a history of many wars, and current wars waged on a global scale, and a military budget second to none. It's military might is historically unprecedented. The United States is a copy or image of the ancient Grecian Empire, the founders of democracy, and the democratic republic.
Grecia was a collection of individual constitutional republics, or city states, later ruled by a single federation, with Alexander as the first king, not unlike the United States and the Federal Government presided over by a President. The United States also goes about forcing other nations to remake themselves in the same image of the democratic republic, which is a copy of itself, and the first beast empire that came before it, the Grecian Empire of Alexander the Great. The U.S. financial and banking system are used globally, and it's currency, the dollar, is the world's reserve currency, so that nobody on Earth can buy or sell without the use of it's currency.
There is one other prophecy contained within Revelation 17-18, that further identifies the eighth empire as the United States of America. It describes the great city Babylon, and it's role as the center of a global economic empire which can be none other than New York City & Wall street. These passages also foretell of hatred within the Ten Kingdoms that bring ruin to the global economy, and the great city Babylon. This end time scenario is referred to as the Great Whore That Sits Upon Many Waters. The fall of the great city Babylon, and the collapse of the global economy, are one of the last events just prior to the arrival of the Kingdom of God.
The United States is involved in a territorial dispute between Israel and Muslims over Palestine and Jerusalem, and arming Israel against Islamic Nations which include the Ten Kingdoms. It is engaged in a war on terrorism also involving the same Ten Kingdoms. In addition, the United States currently rules Iraq, which contains three of the Ten Kingdoms, Basra, Baghdad, and Mosul, with an ongoing U.S. military occupation, and is threatening Iran, another of the Ten Kingdoms, with economic sanctions, and possible military action.
The war on terrorism coupled with the military occupation of Iraq, and the U.S. alliance with Israel, are causing great hatred of the U.S. amongst the Muslim populations within the Ten Kingdoms, and contributing to a greater threat of terrorism, and war. From these facts it can be safely concluded that a growing hatred of Mystery Babylon within the Ten Kingdoms has already begun, and insomuch as U.S. financial interests in the world are coupled with U.S. policy in the Middle East, it is no surprise that such hatred could lead to the collapse of Babylon.
The U.S. is dependant on Middle East oil supplied by the majority of the same Ten Kingdoms, which also hold vast reserves of U.S. denominated assets such as U.S Treasuries. The fact that oil is traded in U.S. Dollars gives the Dollar it's strength as the world's reserve currency, by forcing the nations of the world to hold vast reserves of U.S. Dollars, and to invest in U.S. Dollar assets such as U.S. Treasury Bonds, so as to transact the purchase of oil in U.S Dollars. Here is another fulfillment of Bible Prophecy, "These have one mind and give their power and strength unto the beast."- Rev.17: 13.
(These have one mind), is to say that the Ten Kingdoms are all Muslim Nations, and (Give their power and strength to the beast), is to say that they give power to the Beast Empire by forcing global oil transactions to be in U.S. Dollars, thereby giving power and control of the global oil supply to the U.S., and strength to the Beast Empire by strengthening it's currency. Given these facts, it is easy to see how a growing hatred of the U.S. by the Muslim populations of the Ten Kingdoms can bring down the beast empire, and the global economy, dependant on Middle East oil, and the Dollar.
The war on terrorism, and the U.S. Military occupation of Iraq, is perceived as a war on Islam by many within the Ten Kingdoms. As a result, much of the funding, and many of the guerilla fighters used against the U.S. are recruited from amongst the Muslim populations within the Ten Kingdoms. These extended and protracted wars are causing a deepening financial burden for the United States, and further weakening the dollar in the face of other economic and financial troubles now facing the nation. Muslims in the Middle East know this to be true, and continue the protracted guerilla wars indefinitely, or until the U.S. is financially insolvent, and the U.S. Dollar is severely devalued.
The resulting devaluation of the Dollar will cause a move out of the dollar, and a sell off of U.S. Dollar assets on a global scale, and also result in a decision by the oil producing nations to trade oil in a basket of currencies other than the U.S. Dollar. Such a move out of the dollar, will bring down the Beast Empire almost overnight, and the global financial and economic empire it supports. Just as biblically foretold, hatred of Mystery Babylon by the Ten Kingdoms will bring down the entire global economic system.
The biblical prophecies concerning the eight great empires, and the Ten Kingdoms, foretold to happen prior to the arrival of the Kingdom of God have already come to pass. This means that the arrival of the Kingdom of God is very close, and much closer than most people now realize. However, most people believe that the Ten Kingdoms are yet to happen in some future European domain where the so called Anti-christ is yet to rule, despite the fact that at last count there were twenty seven member states in the European Union, and not ten as the Bible clearly defines.
Perhaps that is why Jesus Christ said that many people will be taken by surprise when the Kingdom of God arrives. They are still waiting for these biblical prophecies to be fulfilled, while they have already come to pass right before their eyes. I can only conclude that the false prophet mentioned in the Book of Revelation has everything to do with the false interpretation of Bible Prophecy that blinds people to history, and keeps them from viewing their own nation, and their own leaders, as the fulfillment of these same prophecies.
But even so, there is one other prophecy related to the above that is yet to be fulfilled before the Kingdom of God arrives. It is the Abomination of Desolation, spoken of by Jesus Christ, as a final sign of His imminent return. The Abomination of Desolation has nothing to do with the so called Anti-christ placing a statue, or profaning a newly rebuilt Jewish Temple as many people now believe. In fact, the Bible actually indicates that the Jewish Temple will not be rebuilt - See Biblical Proof The Jewish Temple Will Not Be Rebuilt & The Reason Why.
The Abomination of Desolation is actually the armies, Muslim armies to be sure, that stand in the holy place = Temple Mount, as the abominable cause of the desolation of Jerusalem by warfare. So, for those of you waiting for a final sign that the end is near, and the arrival of the Kingdom of God is at hand, I say to you, "Watch Jerusalem!" When you see the Abomination of Desolation as described by Jesus, Luke 21: 20-24, the Kingdom of God, and the return of Jesus Christ will be at the door. See also Holy Place And The Temple Mount.

WEEKEND CME STRIKES: Over the weekend, a pair of CMEs hit Earth--one on May 18th (0100 UT) and another on May 19th (2250 UT). The impacts, especially the first one, rattled Earth's magnetic field and sparked Northern Lights visible as far south as Colorado. Some of the brightest appeared over Cape Cod, Massachusetts, where photographer Chris Cook took this self-portrait: "This is the first time since September 2005 that the lights have been visible from here," says Cook. " It was a beautiful display. During the peak, which lasted about 20 minutes, I could see red and pink pillars with my unaided eye." With only a short exposure, Cook's camera revealed the true depth of color shown above. More auroras are possible tonight as Earth's magnetic field continues to reverberate from the impacts.

Jerusalem Encompassed With Armies
Over the years I have repeatedly stressed the fact that the arrival of the Kingdom of God will not happen until all related biblical prophecies have been fulfilled. The last and most important prophecy related to the aforementioned event is Luke, 21: 20 -24, where Jesus foretells of Jerusalem being encompassed with armies, and occupied by Gentiles, just prior to it's final desolation. Immediately following this event there are signs in the sun, moon, and stars, which indicate some unusual heavenly events related to either an actual physical display, or some unusual atmospheric conditions, then followed by the arrival of the Kingdom of God - Luke 21: 27-28.
The bottom line is that before we witness the arrival of the Kingdom of God, the events concerning the desolation of Jerusalem, as foretold by Jesus, must be fulfilled. The way the things shape up today, with Jerusalem as the unofficial capitol of Israel, one of the most advanced military powers on earth, it would take a major military defeat for these things to happen. Only a regional war could generate such a scenario.
Sometimes, in the course of history, serious military mistakes have been made in advance of a major war, that later turn the tide of battle one way or the other. There is clearly a strategic importance to Syria. The location of Syria, on the Mediterranean Sea, between Israel, Jordan, Iraq, and Turkey, makes it an ideal military platform from which to wage a regional war, as well as a corridor through which armies could move from Iran, through Iraq, into Jordan and Lebanon and finally Israel. From it's central location in the Middle East, armies in Syria could launch attacks throughout the Middle East, including U.S. allies such as Saudi Arabia, the location of vital oil supplies to the world.
Should a regional war begin, and with Syria as an ally, Iran could stage retaliatory military strikes throughout the region, and with it's control of the Persian Gulf, could bring all oil shipments from the region to a complete halt. No insurance company in the world will insure an oil tanker filled with thousands of gallons of crude oil through an area of regional war. Just the threat of sinking a single oil tanker would be enough to bring everything to a halt, despite the military might of the U.S. or Israel to police the sea routes. This halt, even temporary, would be enough to bring down the U.S. Petrol Dollar, and the global financial and economic system, both dependant on Middle East oil, and both already in trouble.
Israel and the United States would be forced to fight a war in the middle of the most serious financial and economic crisis in the history of the world. Without costly and continuous logistic support, neither Israel or the United States could wage a war for any great length of time. This in itself could turn the tide of battle against Israel and United States. Iran is well aware of these facts, and with a very modern and well equipped military machine, must have already targeted key areas of the Middle East, with the intent to hasten the demise of the U.S. Dollar, and the global economy, as a weapon against superior U.S. military might.
The idea would be to destroy U.S. financial support for a continuing war in the Middle East, and at same time wage a long term regional war to wear down U.S., and Israeli forces, unable to re-supply because of the financial crisis, and finally overrun Jerusalem, and Israel, via the Syrian/Iraqi corridor through Lebanon. Other Muslim Nations, in the region, outraged by an attack on a U.S./Israeli attack on Iran, would surely join the fray against same, and Syria is a perfect location from which to stage such combined attacks.
That is why there is so much effort on the part of the U.S. and Israel to bring down the Syrian Government in advance of an attack on Iran, apparently scheduled for later this year. However, with Russian help, Syria will be able to survive the current internal strife, and attacks from Israel. Because of increasing financial pressure in the United States, as a result of economic sanctions against Iran, that have backfired against the U.S. Dollar, which is now under threat of collapse, as proven by the Federal Reserve purchase of U.S. Treasury Bonds, and in the interest of saving the Dollar, an attack on Iran will commence without a take down of Syria, and this will be the fatal mistake that will turn the future tide of battle against the U.S. and Israel.
The time line for the take down of Syria now exceeds the time line for a U.S. Dollar collapse, and this emergency will lead to a war with Iran. The U.S. cannot back down by dropping sanctions against Iran, but at the same time these same sanctions are bringing down the Dollar, because the world has chosen to abandon the Dollar, and use gold instead.Under these circumstances a war with Iran is exceedingly stupid, but I believe it will happen anyway, because of panic at the top, and this will be a major military blunder that will lead to the desolation of Jerusalem. The way things are going, we could easily see a regional war begin at any time, and certainly before the end of the year.
I have been warning that something big is about to happen as related to the U.S. Dollar. Iran is actually winning the war against U.S. economic sanctions, because it is demonstrating to the world that U.S. Dollars are no longer required in the global oil market, and that gold, and other currencies serve just as well or better. This is causing a major collapse of the U.S. Treasury market on a global scale, and with escalating U.S. debt things have become unsustainable, even with Federal Reserve purchases of U.S. Treasuries.
Iran will be attacked so that the economic sanctions can be halted. This will not bring an end to the demise of the Dollar, and will only hasten it's collapse, but because of incompetent leadership at the top, and panicked bankers who covertly rule, a war with Iran will happen in a vane attempt to save the Dollar. The Bible clearly indicates a fall of Babylon, and the chastisement of the Great Whore, symbolic of the collapse of the global financial and economic system - Revelation 18, as a result of actions by the Ten Kingdoms - Revelation 17: 16. This also dovetails with the desolation of Jerusalem as referenced by Jesus, Luke 21: 20, and a regional war is just the ticket to make all of these things come to pass exactly as foretold.

Global Economic Collapse & The Fall Of Babylon
Fulfillment of Revelation 18: The current global economic and financial crisis is unprecedented in human history, because never before has there been a time when the entire world was under a single global economic system, and a single currency, the Dollar, of a single nation, the United States, and a single banking system, the Federal Reserve. It has taken since World War II, to develop the current economic and financial system, and the causes for it's collapse, and it is unlikely that such a system will again be implemented in our lifetimes. After the existing global financial/economic system fails, the world will move towards a multi-currency system, which has already been suggested by many. Because of the unprecedented nature of the global economic crisis, and when viewed along with the other biblical signs that have already come to pass - Prophecies of Jesus, there is no doubt that this is the fulfillment of Bible Prophecy - Revelation 18, that warns of such a global economic collapse in the final days before the arrival of the Kingdom of God, as follows: "the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more." Revelation 18: 11.
Middle East War
Fulfillment of Revelation 19: War in the Middle East will develop during the same period as the global economic collapse so as to fulfill the biblical prophecies of Revelation 19. First there is the judgment of the great whore, and the fall of Babylon, symbolic of a collapse of the global economic and financial system, the center of a great global economic empire - Revelation 18, and then follows a gathering of armies for war - Revelation 19, which is then followed by the arrival of the Kingdom of God - Revelation 20. We know from other biblical prophecies contained in Revelation, Ezekiel, Daniel, and the Prophecies of Jesus, that this war will be in the Middle East, in the area of the ancient Seleucid/Babylonian Empire, where now exists the Ten Kingdoms, but also in Palestine, and the area of ancient Samaria, the location of Armageddon, and in Jerusalem, which will be desolated by surrounding armies - Abomination of Desolation. "And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh."- Luke 21: 20. These are the final signs before the return of Christ, and the arrival of the Kingdom of God, "When they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory." "And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption drawled nigh." Luke 21: 27-28.
The Beast Now Reigns: The Bible explains that Alexander the Great was given his power, seat, and great authority by the Dragon - Revelation 13. The Dragon was wounded however, because it's plans for world conquest were curtailed by the sudden death of Alexander at a very young age, before his empire could be forged into a lasting unity. Consequently, with the death of Alexander, the Grecian Empire was divided into four smaller kingdoms, the Antigonid, Seleucid, Bactrian and Ptolemaic Empires - Daniel 8.His deadly wound is healed however, in the later days just prior to the arrival of the Kingdom of God, when the Dragon rises from the pit once again to empower the Beast, who is the leader, or leaders, of an eighth great empire, that would also rule the Seleucid = Babylonian portion of the Middle East = Iraq, as did the first seven empires of the First Beast of Revelation 13 - Revelation 13&17. These seven were the (1)Babylonian (2)Media Persian (3)Assyrian (4) Egyptian (5)Grecian (6)Roman, (7) British Empires.
This eighth great empire, also described as the - Second Beast of Revelation 13, that currently rules the Seleucid = Babylonian portion of the Middle East by virtue of military conquest is none other than the United States of America. The ancient ruins of Babylon are just some 20 miles from modern day Baghdad, Iraq. There are still U.S. troops, in addition to thousands of private U.S. contractors, and State Department Personnel, including large military bases and embassies, established in Iraq, and no matter what the internal political structure of Iraq may be, as long as the U.S. maintains an established presence in Iraq, it covertly rules Iraq by virtue of conquest, and occupation, even as did the first seven empires of the First Beast of Revelation 13.
The attributes of Alexander the Great were those of war, conquest and imperialism. Therefore, it is logical to assume that if Alexander the Great was covertly empowered by the Dragon, then the same attributes of war, conquest, and imperialism reflect those of the Dragon as well. Now let's look at the recent history of the United States following the 9/11 terrorist attack in new York. Something suddenly changed within the political structure of the United States, and it's leaders, beginning with President George Bush, who became obsessed with war, conquest, and global imperialism. It can therefore be concluded that the Dragon of biblical notoriety, has somehow covertly obtained control of the United States, and now empowers and impels the nation and it's leaders towards a goal of world domination, via war, conquest, and military occupation, just as the Bible foretold.
This trend is even more visible now, during the current period of economic crisis, when despite the obvious signs of the impending financial insolvency of the nation, and the collapse of the U.S. Dollar, the U.S. continues to engage in multiple preemptive wars and military occupation around the world, no matter what the cost, and in complete disregard of the financial disaster that these expensive military operations will bring to the nation. Those in power will cut Medicare, and other social programs, raise taxes, allow the infrastructure to collapse, before they will discontinue the wars abroad.It is clear that some dark power has gained control of the United States, and it is now on a course towards global imperialism, and militarism, to the destruction of the nation. This can only be described as an obsession, and it is clear evidence that a foreign power, other than the legal constitutional government now rules the United States, and this power is obsessed with war, conquering, and world domination, to the exclusion of all else. From this it can be concluded that the Dragon has once again ascended from the pit, and is now on a course of world domination through it's control of the eighth empire, and the Beast, exactly as biblically foretold.
The prophecies of Revelation 17-19 are now coming to pass with increasing speed. The Dragon has already gained control of the eighth empire, the United States, through it's leader, the Beast, and is now on course toward global domination and imperialism. The judgment of the Great Whore is also underway with the ongoing collapse of the global economy, and the fall of Babylon is now taking place with the collapse of the U.S. Dollar, and the impending financial insolvency of the United States, and the Federal Reserve, the center of the global economic and banking system. These are signs that the arrival of the Kingdom of God is near at hand. However, there are yet more signs to be fulfilled before that glorious day arrives.
There will yet be a greater war in the Middle East, in Palestine, the location of Armageddon, and in Jerusalem, when the city will be desolated by surrounding armies - Abomination of Desolation. These prophecies are now coming to pass even as I write. Tension continues to mount between the U.S./Israeli alliance, and the Ten Kingdoms of the Middle East, (Syria, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Turkey, Iran, Egypt, Basrah, Baghdad and Mosul = Iraq) because of the U.S. war on terrorism, and over the control of Palestine and Jerusalem, and a war will ensue just as biblically foretold - Daniel And The Middle East Wars. Soon war will erupt, and Jerusalem will be desolated by warfare - Luke 21: 20, and afterward the Kingdom of God will arrive just as foretold. Heed the biblical warning to prepare.

"Come out of her, my people, that you will not be partakers of her sins, and that you not receive her plagues." Revelation 18:4 - In the final days people should not be dependent on the global economic system so they won't suffer after it's collapse. A global economic collapse will mean a shortage of food and other essentials required for survival. This is a warning from God to detach ourselves from reliance on the economic system and prepare for hard times to come. Stock up on food and emergency supplies, and keep extra cash, or gold, so that you aren't dependant on supermarkets, banks, or credit cards for your survival. There's no telling how much time will elapse between the coming global economic collapse and the arrival of the Kingdom of God.
"For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled."- Luke 21: 22.
