Does Bible Prophecy say anything
about the United States? The short answer is, “Not directly.” Trying to find
America in scripture references to “eagles wings” or “young lions” or “isles of
the sea,” requires a pretty extreme stretch of “exegesis.” But by way of
inference the Bible has much to say about America’s future! If America
continues to exist, the following can be said with certainty about America in
prophecy because the Bible applies these truths to all nations. America’s
Christians will all vanish in the Rapture. 1 Thes. 4:17America will be engulfed
by lawlessness. Mat.24:12
- Americans will turn to the Lord
in great numbers. Rev. 7:9-14
- America will be ruled by the
- Americans will experience the
Great Tribulation. Mat. 24:21-22
- American forces will be part of
the Antichrist’s invasion against Israel and God. Zec. 14:2
- America will lose all its Jews.
- America will be ruled by Christ,
King of Kings, and Lord of Lords, in His Kingdom. Zec. 14:9
- America will again call on the
Name of the Lord during the Millennial Kingdom. Isa. 2:2-3
So we can be certain on some
aspects of America’s destiny IF AMERICA SURVIVES.
But if the U.S. stays on it’s
current path of expelling God from public places, then there is the possibility
that divine judgment will bring America’s very existence into question. George
Washington summed up the clear intent of America’s founding fathers when he said
“…it is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God…
to be devoted by the people of these United States to the service of that great
and glorious Being …” But look at the godless trend in the U.S.
- 1840— Horace Mann, the humanist-Unitarian,
took philosophical control of the U.S. educational system.
- 1930— John Dewey, the secular
humanist, instituted the modern U.S. educational framework.
- 1962— Prayers were outlawed in
- 1963— The Bible was outlawed in
- 1987— The Creator was outlawed
in U.S. school science classes.
- 1991— The name of “God” was
outlawed at graduation ceremonies in U.S. schools.
- 2002— The Pledge of Allegiance,
with the term “under God” has now been outlawed in U.S. schools.
Let no one deceive us about the
foundation of our country— the three branches of our government were framed
around Isaiah 33:22: “For the Lord is our Judge [Supreme Court], the Lord is our
Lawgiver [Congress], the Lord is our King [President].” Yet if America is to
survive as the land noted for its Christian principals and its Bible-believing
churches that send forth missionaries throughout the world, then these churches
must begin now to commit to weekly prayer for America. Why? Because it is not
too late, for the Lord says
“If that nation against which I
have spoken turns from its evil, I will relent concerning the calamity I
planned to bring on it.” Jeremiah18:8
We pray for our nation. But we thank God that He has made us first and foremost, and eternally, a citizen of Heaven through faith in our Lord Jesus Christ. America, as much as we love and cherish her in her original vision, did not die for our sins. Jesus did. Praise His Name!
