Is America in Prophecy?

Source: Art Sadlier, Sunday July 25th 2010

There are a number of nations referred to in the scriptures in relation to end time prophecy.

The EU is referred to in the sense that it is very evidently the infrastructure of the coming revived Roman Empire. Daniel tells us about the revival of the Roman Empire in the last days. Daniel 7:7 speaks about the old Roman Empire, and then he refers to the revived Roman Empire, he says, “And it had ten horns.”  Daniel 7:23 again speaks of the old Roman Empire, Daniel 7:24 identifies the revived Roman Empire with the old Roman Empire, it identifies it as 10 horns rising out of the head of the old Roman Empire.

Today, the EU adamantly declares that it is a revival of the Roman Empire. Daniel 7:24 identifies the antichrist as rising out of the R.R.E. Daniel 9:26-27 describes antichrist as a Roman ruler who will sign a seven year peace treaty with Israel and the nations.  Europe has a definite role to play in the end time scenario.

Israel is clearly designated to return to her land in the last days. We have watched with amazement as that event has unfolded before our very eyes.

Russia, Iran, Turkey, Ethiopia and Libya are designated as part of an alliance that will come against Israel in the early tribulation period, seeking to destroy her. We have watched in recent days as that very alliance has unfolded. It has come together with foretold purpose of destroying Israel.

We have a reference to the Kings of the East coming to Armageddon. This would seem to be China, India, Japan and possibly other Asian nations. In recent days the kings of the east have grown in power and purpose, ready to fulfil their role.

America is not found in Bible prophecy. That creates a problem! America has dominated the whole Mideast scenario for the last fifty years. At this point in time, American military and economic power totally dominates the world. As long as America continues in that role, it seems the last-days scenario cannot unfold.

We are not told about America in the last days, we only know that America is in the way of the unfolding of the biblical end-time scenario. It seems certain that America must be neutralized before the prophetic scenario unfolds. The troubling thing is that it is obvious that America is now standing on the brink of national catastrophe.

Steadily and with exacting detail the biblical end-time prophecies are coming together as foretold.

“And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.” Luke 21:28
