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
