That's the general idea.
Eliminate the US as a effective presence the world stage, provide a free hand for the establishment of ummah.
Ever wonder why we aren't mentioned in Revelation?
I don’t think the Maoists have the balls to really try by making their idiotic and megalmaniac fantasies come true...but we will see.
If you mean "we" as in "you and I" then oh oh it is because we was smart enough to get out (all the way out) when the getting was GOOD!
“Beast out of the Earth or Beast out of the sea” I bet we are, but not in a way American Christians would hope that we would be...
The Beast system may have a power base, and broke though we are only invites a charismatic madman who takes control of our nukes, our military, and our air and space flight prowess....don’t think we couldn’t put things back together in the name of the “father land” under certain Nazi like conditions. Canada and Mexico could be easily annexed.
We could have a financial collapse, but that would just mean a military dictatorship arises that ignores our past national debt. We would be a wounded nation, but with nukes and what ever else they have never begun to tell us about. We still have vast supplies of oil, coal, and even rare earths that could be mined again once the “old order” including troublesome enviro’s and Religious fanatics(many of which had suddenly vanished from the scene) were kicked out of the way.
Now what sort of Charismatic Satanically empowered Beast System wouldn’t take advantage of all that to begin to assert its will upon the Earth....”Who is like unto the Beast and who is able to make war against it?” The US disappears or worse becomes the heart of a dark empire...perhaps even a few decades before the Beast and the final end of days scenario is played out!
God's mercy... Every nation that fields an army to surround Jerusalem in the last days will be destroyed completely. With Obama wielding our military like it was "his boys in da hood" instead of following the Laws of the land, there is no doubt that if the UN declared war on Israel, Obama would comply.
Isaiah 18 states in the end, after being crushed and cut asunder, occupied and looted, America will bend its knee to Christ. Europe, Russia, China will no longer exist at that point. A remnant of the USA will.
Because there was no United States in the first century when John received the Revelation.
Do you think it will take 200,000,000 million troops to invade the country called Israel (Rev 9:16)? Israel has 7.5 million people. Who do you suppose they're invading?
Ever wondered why Arkansas is mentioned in the book of Genesis?
(Noah looked out the ark and saw dry land.)
Hey, I know it's not real funny now but I heard it in Sunday school when I was a kid in the 50s, it was funny then.
Great point. I read a book quite awhile ago that suggested that God had blessed the USA with such great power so as to do just two things at a certain time or era:
#1. To help create and nurture the modern state of Israel so as to still be in existence when the end times and the tribulation period would get underway and the Lord could act himself in the eyes of the planet.
#2. To become a "free" superpower with advanced technology so as to spread the word of God across the planet.
Following the accomplishement of those two missions, there is not a great reason for us to exist as a superpower anymore and when we started turning our backs on God and promulgating such a state that mirrors Sodom & Gormorrah as we are now, well, judgment follows inevitably.
