In 1967, when I was just a young girl, my soul was taken to heaven. During my visit with the Lord, I was given an intimate, inside look into the very heart of God! As part of the experience, I was shown the complete and utter destruction of America. It was very detailed and the reasons why this horrific attack was taking place were all explained to me from God’s perspective.
The entire sky became the backdrop for this part of the revelation. A panoramic view of past and future events unfolded before my very eyes. Not with my physical eyes, of course, since no one can see God and live. Many developments seem to be leading us right into the time where worldwide events are setting the stage for the message that I was given to take place.
The movement of God’s arm stretched across the firmament from east to west across the sky. What was being revealed to me were nations and empires rising to greatness and their eventual fall from their pinnacle of glory. They were each given an allotted, predestined time to rule as world empires. These individual empires had a given set length of time to rule most of the rest of the world as they saw fit. Some would rule in righteousness, others in unrighteousness, but they nevertheless were appointed each their set time to rule. They each contributed to the general development of mankind as a whole.
After their appointed time to rule reached its end, this power was then transferred to the next nation in sequence. Though each of these nations believed their empire would never fall from their position of relative greatness, they all came to an end when God deemed their time to rule had been exhausted.
This power that was being passed on from ruling empire to ruling empire was the same spirit that originated in ancient Babylon. This period of sequential ruling nations is called ‘the time of the Gentiles’ or nations.
The last empire to receive the embodiment of the spirit of Babylon would rise to the highest pinnacle of power as compared to the nations that had preceded her. Since the fall of this great nation would bring an end to the world-rule, imperialist spirit, her fall is destined to be the most severe and most violent with devastating repercussions that will affect the entire world. Although we may not want to hear this, I understood this nation to be the United States of America.
The vast expanse of land before me erupted with mushrooming columns of smoke. As I watched at a distance, I could not believe what was unfolding before my very eyes. It almost seemed like a scene from a science fiction movie. There could be nothing to compare it to because nothing quite like this had ever happened before to any other nation on the face of the earth. My inner being trembled at the finality of the judgment engulfing this nation that stood before me. It was an absolute, total, and fierce devastation. This nation could never recover from this final, horrific, and complete destruction.
The prophet Joel saw a scene of sudden devastation of “blood and fire and pillars of smoke,” that would turn the sun into darkness and the moon into blood.
And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth: blood and fire and pillars of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the coming of the great and terrible day of the Lord. (Joel 2: 32-32)
This would be an ultimate and utter destruction without any hope of ever returning to or rebuilding what had been destroyed as most nations do after a war. I didn’t see a sequence of scenes of acts of war, but instead I saw one single act that would cause infinitely more destruction in one hour than all the previous wars put together. No one will be expecting this attack and no one will be able to stop it.
I was overwhelmed with a sense of tremendous urgency that the nation receiving such harsh chastisement should be first warned of her impending judgment. As I watched the incredible scene continue to unfold before my eyes I saw that there was an angel standing next to me. I asked this angel if this nation had been properly warned before these incredibly horrific judgments befell them. My spirit was saddened by the response I received.
His answer was that the prophets of ancient times saw this same scene and wrote about it. They had already warned this nation centuries before this would come upon them. The prophets saw the destruction of a very powerful nation, Mystery Babylon, an unknown nation, being totally destroyed at a future time by means unknown to them.
The prophet Jeremiah described the ultimate destruction and desolation to fall on Mystery Babylon (Jeremiah 50 and 51). He warned us to flee from there to save our life.
Flee from the midst of Babylon, and every one save his life! Do not be cut off in her iniquity, for this is the time of the Lord’s vengeance: He shall recompense her. Babylon was a golden cup in the Lord’s hand, that made all the earth drunk. The nations drank her wine; therefore the nations are deranged. Babylon has suddenly fallen and been destroyed. (Jeremiah 51:6-8)
The prophet Isaiah warned us of a proud lady, the daughter of Babylon, who ignored the warnings of destruction because she believed she would continue to be a lady forever. She boasted that there is no other nation like her, yet she will fall in one hour and in one moment.
O virgin daughter of Babylon, sit on the ground without a throne. And you said, ‘I shall be a lady forever,’ so that you did not take these things to heart, ‘I am, and there is no one else besides me; I shall not sit as a widow, nor shall I know the loss of children; but these two things shall come to you in moment, in one day. The loss of children and widowhood. They shall come upon you in their fullness because of the multitude of your sorceries, for the great abundance of your enchantments. (Isaiah 47:1, 7-9)
All nations will see her burning and shudder at the severity of the judgments falling upon her. Nations will stand in utter disbelief and awe at the waves of intense judgments falling on the one nation they all looked up to as a model of a successful and prosperous super power.
And the kings of the earth, who committed acts of immorality and lived sensuously with her, will weep and lament over her when they see the smoke of her burning, standing at a distance because of the fear of her torment, saying, ‘ Woe, woe, the great city, Babylon, the strong city! For in one hour your judgment has come. (Revelation 18:9-10)
The severity of these judgments have a direct correlation to the degree of spiritual and material blessings bestowed upon this once proud land. In many ways this nation has always represented an answer to the problems of people the world over. To many she was a shelter from political persecution, to others it was a place to worship God as they saw fit. To still others she was the land of infinite opportunities. No other land or country has ever represented so much to so many people from every nation and tongue as this one has. No other country has provided the solution to so many dilemmas or met the needs of so many people around the world as this nation has.
It is not surprising that this nation was idolized and put on a type of a pedestal. Since all the blessings and opportunities that people came to find in America were coming from the God of Israel, He and only He should have been placed in the true place of honor. God wants people everywhere to know that He is the answer to their problems, their afflictions and dilemmas. No nation or government, no matter how great and powerful should ever take His place in their lives.
The prophet Ezekiel warned of the severe consequences for any nation who exalts themselves as an idol, trusting in their wealth, their wisdom, and their power instead of God.
With your wisdom and your understanding you have gained riches for yourself, and gathered gold and silver into your treasuries; by your great wisdom in trade you have increased your riches, and your heart is lifted up because of your riches. Therefore thus says the Lord God: Because you have set your heart as the heart of a god, behold therefore, I will bring strangers against you, the most terrible of the nations; and they shall draw their swords against the beauty of your wisdom, and defile your splendor. They shall throw you down into the Pit, and you shall die the death of the slain in the midst of the seas. (Ezekiel 28:6-10)
I saw a very dark day coming when the strong eagle of democracy fell off her high perch. Nothing and no one was able to come to her aid or assist her.
Once America was out of the picture as a world superpower, I saw great evil spread over the earth. The policeman of the world was no longer there to try and bring justice to an unjust world.
I saw evil men with sinister projects and principles thriving with no one to stop them. They were men of hard hearts who stopped at nothing to spread their venom to unprotected nations. They showed no compassion, but ruled cruelly over the weaker nations, which were left vulnerable and susceptible to the whims of these combined evil forces. Nothing was able to stand in the way of their evil schemes and their desire for world domination.
I remember feeling how bloodthirsty and cruel their ideology was and how easily they would rule the world with terror since there was nothing to restrain them. I supposed this to be a combination of many nations who do not follow the Judeo-Christian value system and do not know the God of Israel. His commandments meant absolutely nothing to them so there was nothing to stop them from committing horrendous atrocities. Their value system was completely different than ours. What we esteem highly was not esteemed at all by them.
America’s Only Hope
The only thing that could stop this judgment on America would be nationwide repentance, returning to our roots in utter humility and with a contrite heart before God. This must be done both individually and collectively. This may sound naive and absurd to some, but God will not relent of His judgments on America unless we repent as a nation. We may think we are too sophisticated and have somehow become so wise in our own understanding that we are immune to any type of judgment or punishment, but there is no other way to save our nation from the danger we are facing.
If God completely removes His protective covering from our land then Satan would be allowed to come in and do with us whatever he wishes. Without God’s protection, terrible calamities would fall upon us and we would be left powerless against the enemy of our souls.
As negative and somber as all of this sounds, many scriptures testify to the fact that if we turn back to our God He will forgive us completely. So I believe there is still hope for America’s future if we return to God, realizing we have not acted according to His will. All of us are guilty to some degree.
It is my personal belief that America still has time to return to God and to her former place of glory among the nations.
“When a righteous man turns away from his righteousness, commits iniquity, and dies in it, it is because of the iniquity which he has done that he dies. Cast away from you all the transgressions which you have committed, and get yourselves a new heart and a new spirit. For why should you die…For I have no pleasure in one who dies,” says the Lord God. “Therefore turn and live!” (Ezekiel 18:30-32).
The Lord is waiting for us to turn to Him with all our hearts and He will indeed turn to us in utter forgiveness and compassion, but we must take the first step. If we humble ourselves He promises to exalt us, but if we continue in the stubbornness of our own understanding we must suffer the consequences.
Beware that you do not forget the Lord your God by not keeping His commandments, His judgments, and His statutes which I command you today. Then you say in your heart, my power and the might of my hand have gained me this wealth. (Deuteronomy 8:11, 17)
