2-26-17 Series, America, Mystery Babylon? #1
From the Late Richard Coombes Book:
"America, The Babylon"
10-16-16, On July 31, 2013, By email to Richard A. Coombes, I requested permission to share excerpts from his book 'America, The Babylon.' Then on 8-2-13, I learned that on July 30, 2013 Brother Coombes had passed into the bosom of our Lord Jesus. His step-daughter, Kim and I had a telephone conversation when she gave me her approval to publish excerpts/summaries from the book. Although Richard's conclusions are controversial; as they are speculations of who/what is 'Mystery Babylon,' you may agree that the research and data he compiled in his eleven year study is valuable.

America, The Babylon #4 [I've listed all of #4]
How can we determine the identity of this future Babylon? We examine the scriptural texts provided to us through the prophecies from Jeremiah & Isaiah. We analyze them for identifying characteristics that may describe Babylon in some way. There are 33 identifying markers that
have given us descriptive aspects of this future Babylon so it's recognizable today. [Assuming of course that the time is near for the fulfillment of these prophecies.]
The Bible talks about a dominant city or nation in the last days that is a major center of commerce that will be destroyed. Many believe it’s referring to the Vatican in Rome; they're wrong … the area of the Vatican is surrounded by 7 hills. (Rev 17:9) There are no mountains in Rome. To hold that view you basically ignore 98% of the scripture referring to it and hold to only ONE verse about the seven hills that's easily discredited. Following are top twenty verses confirming the view America is Mystery Babylon:

Babylon [Greek word 'Megala']. Babylon is symbolically referred to in the feminine, furthermore the gender is delineated as being a prostitute; metaphorically symbolizing the spiritual nature of this city/state/nation. Many past/current Biblical scholars ... More ...
America, The Babylon #8
America or Australia. It did have a huge impact on Israel. Capitalism: It has gone everywhere also 'democracy' with a few minor exceptions; most of the world's nations now have elections except for North Korea [clearly some of these 'elections' are a fraud, however].United Nations: More...
America, The Babylon #9
Revelation 17:12 we see the explanation of what/who are the ten horns. They are ten 'kings' [leaders] in context, the verse says these 'kings' have no kingdom as yet and they receive power for one hour; and are in unanimous agreement giving all authority of their respective governments to the 'beast.' These ten kings represent ten nations who have entered into some sort of prior alliance or treaty; perhaps this is NATO or the central core of the EU. Revelation 17:14 tells us they have decided to go to war against 'the Lamb.' [We know from numerous scriptural texts that the Lamb is the Lord Jesus Christ.] More ...
America, The Babylon Installment #10 [final]
Babylon's Identity and Demise
Revelation Chapter 18
Coombes has endeavored 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. This scripture defines Babylon as 'great' = MEGAS! [Strongs #3173] Revelation 17 & 18 has many references to 'mega'! More ...

The Lord Jesus said to:
"PRAY & WATCH"
Mark 13:33, 37
2 Thessalonians 2:10-12
✝️ 7-11-20, The weight of the 'world's sin' ... the infinite blessings and resources of our salvation in Christ are described as providing the power of surpassing greatness, the grace of surpassing richness, the peace which surpasses all understanding. Thank YOU, Lord. John 1:29; Revelation 5:12; Philippians 4:7
✝️ 7-9-20, When the Lord Jesus was on the cross and the people scorned and scoffed; His great love for all ignorant uninformed sinners showed forth. He died for all sinners. Romans 5:8; Luke 23:34 However, after we are aware we're no longer ignorant of Who He was and 'what we do;' THEN we are all responsible if we reject Christ. John 3:17-18
6-29-20, Jesus said, 'Obey Me!' John 14:15; 1 John 2:3, 3:22 Of course we are forgiven when we sincerely pray for forgiveness turning our lives to the Lord Jesus. We must intend to sin no more ... if we do ... quickly repent as we didn't INTEND to. John 8:11 More here: https://www.gotquestions.org/go-and-sin-no-more.html
✝️ 6-27-29, The lawlessness we are now seeing on America's streets ... who are these young people? The kids raised under liberal theories forcing parents to withhold discipline from their children & taught liberal leftist dogma in the government schools & universities - now they are unruly selfish hateful barbarians. God said to train up children & they wouldn't depart from it [Proverbs 22:6] □□ ... true for evil □ as well as good □ behaviors. More here: https://bit.ly/3i55gQf
✝️ 6-12-20, The Lord □Jesus' mom, Mary's cousin Elizabeth's son John the Baptist was brutally killed because of a wicked hateful woman. Her foolish husband, King Herod - although he liked John; had him executed because of a promise - he musta been drunk - to make such a promise to his wife's daughter, Salome who's mom, Herodias wanted John dead. Matthew 14:3-11; Mark 6:14-29; Luke 9:7-9
✝️ 6-11-20, Regarding forgiveness: the Lord □ Jesus clearly taught that marriage was between a husband & wife. [Matthew 19:5; Mark 7:21] He loves all sinners both the heterosexual & homosexual. He promises forgiveness to everyone who repents coming to Him for salvation. He told the woman caught in adultery: "Go and sin no more.” Matthew 11:28
✝️ 6-9-20, The Lord □ Jesus explained to Nicodemus that he must be 'born again' [John 3.3, 7]. In Utah I've heard some LDS people scoff and ridicule believers in Christ who are 'born again.' Those who scorn are lost; Jesus clearly said to 'marvel not that you must be born again'; without Christ we are lost. John 3:17-18
✝️ 6-8-20, Jesus is God; He came to save sinners. “For He [Jesus] Whom God sent speaks the words of God: The Father loves the Son & has given all things into His hand. He that believs on the Son hath everlasting life & they that believes not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on them.” John 3:34-36
✝️ 6-7-20, The Lord □ Jesus spoke from the cross first of forgiveness, salvation then of His Mother's care into John's hands. He spoke of being forsaken & then triumph as His task as human was complete shedding His perfect blood for the forgiveness of sins to all who repent believing in Him. His body was thirsty. And last of His reunion with the Father. Matthew 27:46; Luke 23:34, 43, 46; John 19:26-28, 30; Mark 15:34
✝️ 6-3-20, Interesting the different duties of God's arch angels. Michael is a warrior who will defeat Satan and Gabriel was/is God's messenger appearing to: Prophet Daniel 8:15-17, 9:21-24 ... Zacharias, father of John the Baptist, Luke 1:11-18... Mary, Mother of Jesus, Luke 1:26-31... Joseph, Husband of Mary, Matthew 1:20-24, 2-13
✝️ 6-2-20, In appx 530 BC the Lord God of Israel chose the Persian [aka Iran] King Cyrus to protect and help the Jewish exiles in Babylon. Who would come back and rebuild Solomon's Temple in Jerusalem where now - since 688 AD - a Muslim mosque sits. Mark 13:14; Isaiah 45:4-6, 9, 12-13. World Without End. Ephesians 3:20-21
2 Thessalonians 2:10-12; Jeremiah 1:5; Galatians 6:7; 1 Thessalonians 5:4
✝️ 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
✝️ 5-27-20, See Romans 13:11; James 5:8; 1 Peter 4:7; 1 Thessalonians 2:19; Titus 2:13; 1 Cor 15:51-52, Rev 11:15 Scripture tells us that "The coming of the Lord is at hand;" but thousands of years have passed without the Lord’s coming. We must remember that one thousand years are like one day to God (Psalm 90:4; 2 Peter 3:8). The rapture will happen without warning at any time and believers in the Lord Jesus must be ready at all time. Certain current events cause us to believe we are near the Lord’s trumpet call and that the rapture of the church is ‘at hand.
✝️ 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
✝️ 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.
✝️ 4-14-20, 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 □□
