Read any passage in the Bible and then do
a little research.
You will find clear interpretation for
Words that the Spirit used can never be
understood properly by pulling a meaning out of
The word “water” when used as a type is
always the Word of God.
When God says “Jerusalem,” He means the

Babylon is used in the Bible over 295 times.
When the Bible says “Mystery Babylon,” He
speaks of a religion that has become evil and
corrupt because “Babylon” is the seat of Satan.
When He says “Babylon” without a
modifying adjective, He means Babylon the city,
which was founded by Nimrod.
To try to identify America as Babylon is
utterly contrary to Biblical interpretation.
Using that kind of method to study the
Bible leads to all kinds of misunderstandings.
Always let the Bible interpret itself.
Mystery Babylon is clearly the End Time apostasy
of false Christianity.
The seventeenth chapter of Revelation is
the most noted example.
A harlot woman is another Biblical type
of corrupt Christianity.
A pure woman represents the pure faith of
The harlot woman is the opposite.
When you put “Mystery Babylon” with the
“harlot woman,” you have a double picture of the
utter false religion of the Seven Years of
It is religion at its lowest
manifestation in human history.
This is the church of the Antichrist.
Revelation chapter eighteen is the city of
Babylon rebuilt in the Southern part of Iraq.
To try to superimpose this chapter into
America is contrary to every Biblical principle.
There is not one basis for such
transliterating of the Holy Bible.
The main reason this is often tried is
because our nation has a preponderance of sins.
I certainly admit that, but it is not
God’s method of understanding the Word of God.
What if we did that kind of twisting of

America has got a lot of sins for which we are
going to pay.
This nation will be subject to all the
horrid calamities of the Seven Years of
These calamities are God’s instruments

The unity of the two entities is part of
the mystery of wickedness.
For the early years of the Seven Years,
the Antichrist and His false church will be
They will use each other.
So, calling one “Babylon” and the other
one “Mystery Babylon” is perfect prophecy.
By the end of the Seven Years, the two Babylons
will clash and the Antichrist will pour his fury
upon Mystery Babylon and burn her with fire.
“And the ten horns which thou sawest upon
the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall
make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her
flesh, and burn her with fire” (Revelation
This truth also destroys the idea that
both chapters are talking about Rome as Mystery
How could the Antichrist from literal
Babylon burn Mystery Babylon if both are the

I personally believe that when the army
of Russians and Islamic countries march towards
Israel, we will either come to Israel’s defense

That is still uncertain and our defense

World War and be a partner in the development of
the Nation of Israel.
Defending Israel since 1948, providing
Israel with a faithful partnership, and being
her ally right down to the end is absolutely
God’s will for our great nation.
Anyone that would undercut that purpose
needs to remember that God is still the sole
owner and keeper of this Universe.
He can pull down an arrogant president
just like He allowed Him to be elected.
I would suggest that any president or
politician should watch his words and actions

America is not Babylon, but America is
answerable to God for our grievous sins and for
our responsibility to Israel.
