I have to say, your analysis of mystery babylon seems to be most acurate. I have to question, however, whether it will be the entire U.S. If you’ll note, it says “city”. Obviously, in my opinion, the beast is the U.N., which was basically started by the U.S, as well N.A.T.O. Isnt it amazing how clear GOD makes it? “feet of a bear” we all know who that is, leapord, which I believe to be Germany, the lion, I assume to be England, and how could China not play a role in it? They have the largest head count of millitary personnel in history. I thank you for what may be the answers to my question, as to where I should go, and take my prescious family with me, perhaps it is Israel, as you say. One question, if I may. I will certainly take your advice and read the book you mentioned, by Rick Coombes.
Once you read Rick’s book you’ll understand why all of America, not just Babylon, New York fits the entire prophecy found in Jeremiah 50-51 which speaks of a “land of Babylon” as well as the “city” falling. Here are some excerpts on this topic:
From page 14 of Volume 2
The final end-time Mystery Babylon is described in Jer. 50:12 as being THE LAST OF THE NATIONS. Revelation 17 & 18 tells us further that she is a Super-City/State/Nation or i.e. the Last of the Super-Powers, or the Last of the Super Nations of History. The usage of the word “city” is used to describe a nation not just a city only. Those who hold to the Rome concept would have to agree with this because. Rome had little power but for the other cities and nations in Italyâ€¦for which Rome was simply the Capital city. This verse clearly tells us that it is not the UN or N.W.O. or any other organization. It is a city/state/nation or what we today call a nation. At times the focus is on the chief city while at other times the focus is on the nation as a whole.
The final end-time Mystery Babylon is: A LAND OF AGRICULTURE
Jeremiah 50:16â€¦ speaks of it having its planters (“sowers”) and harvesters of the crops. This again refers to a nation â€¦and there is no organization to match this character trait.
Jeremiah tells us in chapter 50: 32bâ€¦ (Quoting the Lord’s own words)â€¦”I will kindle a fire in his CITIES and it shall devour all round about him.”
Jeremiah tells us in chapter 51:43 of the description of Babylon after the judgmentâ€¦ “Her CITIES are a desolation, a dry land, and a wilderness, a land where no man dwellethâ€¦”
There is much more. If anyone wants to understand the secret identity of Mystery Babylon (which is why its called “mystery“) they will not be disappointed by Ricks two volumes of research on Mystery Babylon.
