Jacqueline wrote in reference to my articles about America is Babylon where we learn America is predicted to be burned with fire, from which God’s people will be told to flee:
How can I tell my family and friends without them laughing at me that America is a sinful city? please help.
First, the command from heaven to God’s people to flee America in Revelation 18 and Jeremiah 51 is missing a timing element. No doubt a prophet must come to fill us in on when the optimal time “before she is judged” has come, as this command is incomplete and therefore not yet applicable.
Second, it is not your job to warn others about the prophecy or you would be equipped to prove it to them through signs as all of God’s (true, Hebraic) prophets have. It is a matter of faith that the Bible is true and that the identity of Mystery Babylon is the United States of America. You cannot prove this to others and it would be a waste of time to try to, especially if they are not asking you out a sincere desire to know.
What to do then? The Bible tells us to focus on purifying ourselves and then when others see our good works they will praise God (Mt 5:16) and perhaps ask us about the hope that lies within us (1Pe 3:15). Then we can tell them only what they asked for rather than use it as an excuse to try to convert them. This focus on getting our sinful selfish nature cleaned up is our real Great Commission, rather than going around talking about our beliefs with everyone who will listen. Notice the confirmation of this here in the prophecy of the Apostles until now, the end:
Daniel 11:35 (ESV) and some of the wise shall stumble, so that they may be refined, purified, and made white, until the time of the end, for it still awaits the appointed time.
To purify yourself study the entire Bible and find out what the righteous people praised therein did and copy it. Do not follow religious traditions in place of hearing and doing the word of God directly, just as people like Abraham, David and Jesus did.
