Babylon's Identity and Demise
Revelation Chapter 18 
"... Babylon the great [Greek 'megas' Strongs 3173] is fallen, is fallen,
and is become the habitation of devils [demons], and the hold of every
foul spirit, a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. For all nations
have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, the kings of
the earth have committed fornication with her and the merchants
of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies. "
Revelation 18:2-3 -- Angel Gabriel [he usually
communicating messages between God and man]
This book endeavors to show evidence confirming the theory that the USA is the end time Babylon. We will look at the meanings and definitions of the words used in scripture and see references to satanic activity in Babylon/America. We see birds described as 'hateful' ... birds of prey that are considered symbols of the satanic rebel forces; the choice of words is important:
• Fallen: Repeated twice for emphasis = Epesen in Greek
• Great: Megas in Greek
This scripture defines Babylon as 'great' = MEGAS! [Strongs #3173] Revelation 17 & 18 has many references to 'mega'! Also, it's not the first appearance of the Greek word Epesen [fallen] also in Revelation 14:8:
"And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon
is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all
nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication."
The two first verses of Revelation 18 proclaim God's indictment and declaration of guilt of this great city/nation; and is announcing the sentence of complete annihilation; the next five describe the mechanism:
"For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies. 4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, My people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities. 6 Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double. How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow." Revelation 18:3-7
As we examine the scriptures, we have learned the formula of the elements of mystery Babylon; verses 3 through 7 describe five reasons for her punishment:
"Because your businessmen were the 'mega' ones of the earth"
By their 'sorceries' [Greek word 'pharmakeia' Strongs #5331] all nations were deceived. They made a deal with the devil ... money & power in exchange for their successes carrying out any wickedness against God or His children.
The final pages of the book cover speculation of when the devastation will take
place on the only nation in the world that fits all the criteria listed in
God's holy word ... the United States of America.
Richard Coombes encouraged any/all who may fear what's coming. No need to fear
if you know the Messiah, the Lord Jesus Christ, the King of Kings ... if you have repented of your sins asking the King for His forgiveness, accepted His sacrifice and shed blood in your place, if you earnestly live your life for His honor and glory, then you will escape the horrors to come. Pray and seek His forgiveness now before it's too late.
Even so, come Lord Jesus. Amen
Book: 'America, the Babylon'
[Excerpts, Images & Summaries -- Annette]
R. A. Coombes, Passed to Glory, July 30, 2013
I received some contrary views, and by their tone, Richard's report and my summaries are not being read or even considered; that's unfortunate. Clearly Richard's
conclusions are controversial BUT the research and data he compiled in his eleven year study is valuable for us whichever 'Babylon' concept we ascribe to.
In my view, it is reasonable and logical that the USA is the
'Mystery Babylon' of the Bible. -- Annette

4-25-20, The Lord & King Jesus Christ has gone to prepare a place for His born again repentant [Luke 13:3] believers. Read about it in the New Testament John 14: here
2 Thessalonians 2:10-12; Jeremiah 1:5; Galatians 6:7; 1 Thessalonians 5:4
✝️ 5-22-20, Interesting that the Lord □ Jesus said at the 'LAST SUPPER' He'd drink wine with the Apostles again in His Father's kingdom. Another confirmation & validation of scripture & teaching that we will be with Him in glory. Hallelujah! Matthew 26:26-30; Mark 14:22-26; Luke 22:14-23; 1 Corinthians 11:23-34
utah333 ✝️ 5-19-20, No other Disciple of Christ had so many visions & revelations as the Apostle Paul & he isn't generous with his descriptions. So his report - when he was translated [aka raptured] - is sparse. Some believe it happened when he was left for dead after he was stoned at Lystra. [Acts 14:19] Whenever it happened it's encouraging to add his name to the list of the other five: Enoch, Elijah, Philip, John and Jesus. Next it'll be the 'Church.' More here https://bit.ly/3bIwuI1
✝️ 5-18-20, In 1634 AD Rembrandt's 'DOUBTING THOMAS' painting depicts the fact that disciple Thomas did not touch the risen Lord Jesus. Shame and shock is what's displayed when he exclaimed, 'MY LORD AND MY GOD!' And the admonition of Christ that those who've not seen still believe are blessed. John 20:24-29
✝️ 5-17-20, During these stressful times as the world struggles to understand believing they can fight against a virus; when the economy is falling everywhere ... I feel such pity for those who don't know the Lord □ Jesus. Surely they are most fearful. The Lord said if you only have faith as small as a tiny mustard seed nothing shall be impossible. Luke 13:3; Ma
✝️ 5-9-20, The Lord □Jesus had much to say about His return & the conditions of the earth in the end times. It’s indisputable; He gave a laundry list of what it’ll be like. Many think we’re in it now with the horrors caused by the govt shutdown over the Covid virus. Even so, Come Lord Jesus. Revelation 22:20; Luke 21:25-28, 36
✝️ 5-8-20, □ Jesus is the Light of the world. His born again disciples carry His Light. We are hated as He was hated because evil mankind loves wickedness and darkness. Example: Christian churches closed for Easter during covid scare; but Muslim mosques aren’t – New York giving them 500K free meals for Ramadan. Matthew 10:22; Mark 13:13; John 3:19, 9:5; Galatians 2:20
✝️ 5-7-20, Sins □ Jesus Harshly Condemns; He said, “God knows our hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God. V9 For all those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.” [Pride] Luke 16:15, 18:9-14; Hebrews 1:8-9
✝️ 4-30-20, When the Lord □ Jesus Mother told her son that at the Cana wedding celebration there was no wine - I wonder if the Lord did little miracles around the house so Mary knew of His abilities expecting Him to quickly whip up some good wine. And He did! The Lord's first miracle on earth water into wine. John 2:1-11
✝️ 4-29-20, We learn the importance of loving God from Psalm 91 where Moses is blessed by God Who said: 'v9 Because thou hast made the Lord... the most High, thy habitation; v14 Because he hath set his love upon Me, therefore, l will deliver him & set him on high, because he hath known My name. He shall call upon Me & I will deliver him ... & shew him My salvation." Psalm 90:1, 91-14
✝️ 4-28-20, The Lord □ Jesus, in the book of Matthew, lists what’s called the “Beatitudes.” He lists the items in our lives in His 'Sermon on the Mount' that examine our values, vision & habits to wholehearted obedience to God. We seek His forgiveness & acceptance for eternal life with Him; this is the good news 'Gospel.' John 14:6; Matthew 5:1-48, 6:1-34, 7:1-28.
✝️ 4-27-20, In the days when □ Jesus walked the earth and healed all who came to Him ... imagine the horror of those who He healed who believed He was the Son of God as they may have watched their Savior brutalized and killed. Hopefully they were nearby 3 days later!! Hallelujah. Mark 16:1-20; John 20:1-31
✝️ 4-26-20, Seeing this wonderful painting of King Jesus with this beautiful child makes me think of all the innocent children who are now with Him in Heaven as their lives were brutally taken in abortion before they were officially 'born.' I imagine those millions of babies will be in the Lord's army when He returns in power and glory. Hallelujah! Revelation 19:11, 14
✝️ 4-22-20, Considering the harsh punishment God meted out in the Old Testament for blasphemy - why do people in the modern world now think it's perfectly permissible to disobey God's commandment #3 & blaspheme [deliberately & repeatedly] HIS HOLY NAME?? God will not be mocked [Galatians 6:7] there is judgment coming someday; He has a record book, keys to death & Hell. Revelation 1:17-20
✝️ 4-14-20, Based on the behaviors of some church goers; apparently they think God is like an old lenient Grandpa winking at deliberate unrepentant sin. Even sins that are done repeatedly with no remorse. Because the Lord God loves us so much, He generously warns us ... He has a book where names of forgiven sinners are recorded. Almighty God demands us to honor and obey Him. Revelation 1:18, 3:5, 20:1; Malachi 3:16 □□
3-23-20, The risen Christ hid Himself from Cleopas and friend as they walked to Emmaus. He ultimately did reveal Himself to over 5000 people. Yes, for any scoffers, Jesus did rise from death and is alive forevermore. He alone can save us from our sin; thank You, Lord, Hallelujah! Luke 24:13; Mark 16:12-13
The Lord God created all living things for His pleasure [Genesis 1:28; Colossians 1:16]. Amazing that so many people refuse to obey Him. God said we must repent or perish [Luke 13:3]. He is the potter we are nothing but a lump of dirt. Isaiah 64:8; Jeremiah 18:6; Lamentations 4:2. [Hymn: 'Have Thine Own Way, Lord' here: https://bit.ly/2TYOoQZ ]
1-24-20, Another historical act by this PRESIDENT DONALD JOHN TRUMP - personally speaks at the Washington DC annual 'March for Life.' There was a time in Pres Trump's past when he was uninformed and supported 'a woman's right to choose' killing her child. But then he became educated on this issue and now supports the 'CHILD'S right to LIVE!'
