Chapter 18 -- The Destruction of New York and Meccah and America!
"And after these things I saw another angel (Hercules or Samson) come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory. And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird" (18:1-2).
After these things (after Catholic Europe fell in 1870) I saw another angel come down from heaven (A plane come down from sky on 9-11-2001), having great power (jet fuel and speed; long-haired Hercules a.k.a. Samson); and the earth was lightened with his glory (bright explosion; sun under this constellation) (18:1). He cried mightily with a strong voice (al Jazerra TV; worldwide radio, TV, printing press, internet), saying, Babylon the great ("Great Satan") is fallen is fallen."
Why is New York called Babylon? Like ancient Babel, where each ethnic group spoke a different language (Gen. 11:7-9), so also 800 languages are spoken in New York city, making it the most linguistically diverse city in the world. There is a predominantly Jewish community of over 200,000 actually called "BABYLON" about 30 miles west of the World Trade Center site on Long Island (This is the largest Jewish community outside of Israel.), where ships must pass to enter the harbor, but right next to the Twin Towers the area around the Stock Exchange is known as "Little BABYLON." God tells his people to escape (Jer. 51:45; Zech. 2:7). New York has a "Chinatown" and a "Little Italy" also. Also it had twin "tower(s) whose top(s) may reach unto heaven" -- the World Trade Center towers -- to unify mankind and make the "people one" (Gen. 11:6). "Babylon being divided in the middle by the River Euphrates ... had on each side of the river an extraordinary structure. On one side of the river stood the royal palace... on the other the temple of Jupiter Belus" (Herodotus 1:180). Two prominent structures.
Why is it fallen twice? Because the literal city of Babylon fell in 539 B.C. and later Rome fell in 1870 which was "the great city which reigneth over the kings of the earth" -- 17:18 and/or New York in 2001 fell which is the "great city which reigneth over the kings of the earth." Why twice? Two towers fell. Two planes hit their target. Why twice? The first Gulf War occurred and then the second Gulf War was started due to twin towers attack so Saddam Hussein's Babylon was fallen a second time. Why twice? Two timelines: one long day-for-a-year historicist where the twin towers of New York were hit; one day-for-a-day futurist where Islamistan and Aztlan will fall. Etcetera.
"And is become the home of demons (Drago, Serpens, Hydra, Cetus, Medusa, and a three-headed snake), and foul spirits, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird" (Corvus & Cygnus). Aquila & Lyra are American eagles with Sagitta the American arrow and the American stars and stripes of Lyra. Vega is a white star. Furthermore, if a haunted house is the result of an innocent person being murdered in that house, then it is understandable that "ground zero" would now be haunted. (18:2). People have seen "evil faces" in the smoke.
The eagle is an "unclean and hateful bird" representing the entire nation of the United States, not just the city of New York. Also Eridanus portrays ostriches [Arab] and in Libra is an owl. This is a good description of the United Nations as well as the New York prison system (Metropolitan Correctional Center). There are 2.5 million inmates in the U.S. prison system -- largest in the world. Prison rates in the US are the world's highest, at 737 people per 100,000. With only 5% of the world’s population, the U.S. has more than 20% of the world’s prison population – that makes us the world’s largest jailer. From 1978 to 2014, our prison population has risen 408%. One in 110 adults are incarcerated in a prison or local jail in the U.S. This marks the highest rate of imprisonment in American history. One in 35 adults are under some form of correctional control, counting prison, jail, parole and probation populations. Americans do not want hundreds of thousands of unvetted Syrian "refugees" flocking to America in 2016. Who is going to do background checks on them? They have no intention of assimilating into American society. We have millions of illegals from south of the border who have no intention of assimilating either. Obama and the Democrats want to flood us with radical terrorists. The religious beliefs of Muslims do not mix with anything America stands for. Federal government documents entitled FM 3-39.40 Internment and Resettlement Operations came to light. The document is a recipe book on how to organize and maintain a FEMA camp. It spells out what life will be like for millions of Americans. One of the primary purposes of these numerous camps will be slave labor. What happens to the elderly, handicapped and sick? History clearly demonstrates that when the slaves no longer serve their intended purpose to the state, they are exterminated. Is this what the FEMA coffins are for?
Who is this glorious ANGEL? Astronomically the angel with "great power" is Hercules (SAMSON). This is Christ our Lord who has visited New York just as he visited Sodom anciently. Maybe he said "I will go down now, and see whether they (New Yorkers) have done altogether according to the cry of it, which is come unto me; and if not, I will know" (Gen. 18:21). Historically the angel is a Moslem Arab martyr flying a passenger airliner. Ironically, "Hercules in New York" was a 1969 fantasy adventure film, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, where "Hercules" came "down from heaven, having great power" etcetera. The ultimate fulfillment of the glorious angel is, "the LORD (who) shall ... destroy with the brightness of his coming" the Man of Sin (2 Th. 2:8). Just as the "mighty ANGEL" of the Reformation (Rev. 10:1) was identified as CHRIST, so there will be a second Reformation when our Lord returns. CHRIST will be preached by Reformers who don't "deny the POWER (OBEDIENCE -- Tit. 1:16) thereof" (2 Tim. 3:5). God only gives his Holy Spirit "to those who OBEY him" (Acts 5:32).
Just as "Babylon" typified Roman Catholic Europe historically, so Babylon today is also represented by the United States. Each "Babylon" was a military SUPERPOWER (Jer. 50:23; 51:20; Isa. 14:4-6). The United States is a leader in violence, drug-abuse, pornography and greed -- where homosexuality and abortion are allowed in public but the Bible is not allowed in the classroom. Just as Rome's false Papal religion was offered to the world to DRINK, so America's Hollywood "entertainment" industry, rock music and permissiveness have been DRUNK worldwide. Even American Protestant churches are "a refuge of lies" (Isa. 28:17). Both the SNAKE and the EAGLE have been symbols of both the Roman Empire and the American Empire. Just as SEMIRAMIS invited the world's KINGS once a year to have ritual SEX with her on the New Year festival, and if they lived through the night, they were permitted to rule another year, so also the POPE invited KINGS to unite church and state in CONCORDATS with the Vatican and if they served her loyally they were not deposed. AMERICA also invites world LEADERS to visit "Lady Liberty" in New York for the U.N. If they are willing to follow corrupt American policies, they remain in power. Otherwise, they receive sanctions or are removed from power in a "regime change." Semiramis moved from Babylon to Rome to New York (cp. Zech. 5:5-11). The LIBERTINE Semiramis became the goddess LIBERTAS worshipped at a temple on Aventine Hill in Rome, and later became the idolatrous "Statue of LIBERTY," facing east, standing in New York, inviting the world's multi-ethnic, multi-religious "wretched refuse" to integrate and intermarry and become "one" people (one race; one religion) just like at Babel (Gen. 11:6). The Italian Bertholdi was seeking a commission to construct a statue of the goddess Isis -- the Egyptian "queen of heaven" (Jer. 7:18; 44:16-19) -- to overlook the Suez Canal. Instead she was given to the U.S. The SEVEN spikes in her sunburst crown represent enlightenment of the sun god upon the seven continents and seven seas -- translated "seven hills." Staten Island even has seven hills. Isis or Ishtar was known in ancient Babylon as the "goddess of personal FREEDOM" and "mother of IMMIGRANTS." Instead of the ten commandments inscribed on her tablet, we find the date July 4, 1776 when she set men FREE from Britain for better and worse. Her pedestal has TEN pyramid-like points plus one that is "stouter than his fellows" (Dan. 7:20). The statue has SEVEN concentric levels or floors in its foundation -- "SEVEN hills." The "golden CUP" is "full of abominations" just as the natural gas TORCH is smelly. It was painted gold in the 1980s. Just as God destroyed the tower of Babel, and used Moslems to destroy Constantinople, and barbarians to destroy Rome, so also He used Moslems to destroy the TWIN TOWERS. The whole world has seen "the SMOKE of her BURNING" on TV.
The World Bank, Wall Street, United Nations, and Lady Liberty all are in New York. Merchants in that city who lost business after 9-11 did mourn. "NEW YORK" actually adds up to 666 if A=6, B=12, C=18, etcetera. In a larger sense, the entire United States typifies Babylon because the statue of LIBERTAS, goddess of Rome, stands atop the U.S. Capitol building and MARS (Marduk) stands at its entrance. On the spring and fall equinox the main street of Washington D.C., Constitution Avenue, aligns to her home star SIRIUS. On June 21 the Washington Monument (Baal's PHALLUS) is in perfect alignment with the sun. The name of the sun god Utu's temple in Babylon was the "WHITE HOUSE." The Jefferson Memorial was modeled after the pagan Roman Pantheon and the Lincoln Memorial after the pagan Greek Parthenon. The significance of the United States typifying Babylon is that it will be overthrown "as Sodom and Gomorrah" (Isa. 13:19) and "be desolate forever" (Jer. 50:39-40; 51:62). Anciently when the Medes and Persians conquered Babylon, the city remained populated and barely a "shot" was "fired." It wasn't until 1400 A.D. that the water source ran out and the city was covered with sand and Jeremiah's prophecies were fulfilled.
Mexicans believe the American southwest belongs to them and by 2050, 100 million immigrants will live there supported by the Catholic Church. They call it the "Reconquista." The ten horns of this Mexican Catholic Union may be Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, California, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, Idaho, Oregon and Washington. Moslems also have a desire to conquer the United States. The Mississippi could be a natural dividing line between these two camps.
Does the United States really fit the description of "Babylon" in Scripture? (1.) She "sits on many waters" (Jer. 51:13) (from the Great Lakes to the Gulf of Mexico and from sea to shining sea -- Atlantic to Pacific)(2.) She is the "youngest of the nations" (Jer. 50:12) and makes her (Victorian; Puritan) mother ashamed with her "careless" and "wicked" attitudes (Isa. 47:8) (bikinis; gay parades; sin city Las Vegas; abortions). In all 50 states, same-sex marriage is legal. (3.) She is "the hammer of the whole earth" (Jer. 50:23) "that destroyest all the earth" (Jer. 51:25) so must have the strongest military in the world. (4.) She mounts "up to heaven" (Jer. 51:53) with a space program (NASA). (5.) She is "proud" (to be an American) and "glorifies" herself (Jer. 50:31; Rev. 18:7) and (6.) lives "deliciously" (18:7). (7.) She is "abundant in treasures" (Jer. 51:13) or very wealthy to the point of going mad over her idols (Jer. 50:2,38; Hab. 2:18). (8.) She is the "praise of the whole earth" (Jer. 51:41) and (9.) "the Lady (Liberty) of kingdoms" (Isa. 47:5). (10.) She is "given to pleasures" (Isa. 47:8) (television; video games; sports) (11.) and her universities teach "perverted knowledge" (Isa. 47:10) called higher education (evolution taught; Bible forbidden). (12.) She is the center of world trade since "the nations shall not flow together anymore" to her when she is punished (Jer. 51:44) and since worldwide shipping was made profitable because of her (Rev. 18:19). (13.) She is ruled by "many counsels" (a democratic republic) (Isa. 47:13) and (14.) is "peeled" (timbered with open fields) (Isa. 18:2). (15.) Obesity is a problem. "Ye are grown fat like the heifer at grass" (Jer. 51:11). (16.) She has "labored from" her "youth" in the occult (Isa. 47:12,9) as we saw earlier regarding the buildings in Washington D.C. (above; many founding fathers were Freemasons). (17.) The United States is the largest importer of oil in the world (Rev. 18:13) (18.) She has "mingled people in the midst of her" (Jer. 50:37) who will "flee every one to his own land" (Jer. 50:16) when war comes. (America is a melting pot; a nation of immigrants; "E Pluribus Unum -- Out of many, One"). (19.) Big Pharmaceutical companies have branches all across the U.S. ("sorceries" -- Gr. Pharmakeia meaning ""medication or pharmacy" -- Rev. 18:23). (20.) A nation "from a far country, from the end of heaven" (Isa. 13:5) and from the "north" (Medes? -- 51:11,28) will "make her land desolate, and none shall dwell in it" (Jer. 50:3). None of their arrows (ballistic missiles) "shall return in vain" (Jer. 50:9). It will be "a desert" (50:12). "Let nothing of her be left" (50:26). "I will kindle a fire in his cities" (50:32) and "it shall be no more inhabited forever" (50:39). "Her cities are a desolation" (Jer. 51:43). This illustrates that "Babylon" is not merely one city (New York), but the entire United States that will be destroyed. "Though they dig into hell (underground military bases), there shall my hand take them; though they climb up to heaven (airplanes), from there will I bring them down ... and though they be hidden from my sight in the bottom of the sea (submarines), there will I command the serpent, and he shall bite them" (Amos 9:2-3).
"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. And I heard another voice from heaven (Ophiuchus walking), saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues" (18:3-4).
All nations have experienced the consequences of American immorality: the pornography, the homosexuality, the unbiblical divorce, the interracial marriage, the abortion (Ez. 16:20), the idolatry (Jer. 2:20; 3:8-9), the false religion, Sunday, Easter, X-mas, Halloween, fiat petro-dollar, GMO crops, Evolution, Hollywood, etcetera. Americans have proclaimed it in TV, radio, books, magazines and internet. Notice the inter-connecting red radius lines from her cup to the world. Notice the red "rod" from Cepheus to Coma and Virgo. Time-Warner, CBS, Viacom, McGraw-Hill and Virgin Media all publish, print or broadcast worldwide and all have HQ in NY. For all nations have become spiritually drunk (sinful) from the temple prostitute's (Virgo's) intoxicating love potion, and the kings of the earth (Cepheus and Coma) have committed fornication with her (worshipped idols -- Ez. 6:9 -- symbolized by the Statue of Liberty or Astarte). The merchants of the earth (global corporations) became rich through many imported products (Wall Street, The New York Stock Exchange, NASDAQ, World Bank, United Nations, World Council of Churches and Council on Foreign Relations all have HQ in N.Y.) (18:3). And I heard another voice from heaven (Elijah truly shall come first -- Matt. 17:11), saying, Come out of her, my people (Jews & Christians), that ye be not partakers of her sins, and receive not of her plagues (Anglo-Saxons fled Moslem & Catholic Europe for Britain in Rev. 7:4. Thus, Americans should flee Moslem & Catholic U.S. for British Columbia or Yukon in our day. Recall that Samson knocked down twin pillars holding up "about 3000" Philistines on the roof (Judges 16:27) in his blind suicide attack. The Moslems also knocked down twin towers holding up 2973 American victims in their "blind hatred" "blind religion" suicide attack. Notice Ophiuchus's tilted legs are two tall towers in a fireball. Notice also the people (constellations) jumping out of windows (stars) and falling through the air (Hercules, Perseus, Aquarius, Bootes, Gemini, Auriga, Orion, etc.) and those running to get away from the black smoke and ash (entire Zodiac). Notice the falling pieces of debris and glass (stars rotating down to horizon)
"In that day, he which shall be upon the housetop (northern Canada), and his stuff in the house (in the U.S.), let him not come down to take it away: and he that is in the field, let him likewise not return back. Remember Lot's wife. Whosoever shall seek to save his life (in the U.S.) shall lose it; and whosoever shall lose his life (in Whitehorse, Canada) shall preserve it. (Luke 17:31-33).
Anciently sacred temple prostitutes (Virgo) committed (red radius line) fornication with their followers who contributed offerings to the Temple -- all under the pretense of worshipping God. These gaudily dressed harlots made their clients drunk physically and on false doctrines and idolatry and their clients gave them gifts. Hannah may have been referring to this practice when she said to Eli in the Temple, "I have drunk neither wine nor strong drink ... Count not thine handmaid for a daughter of Belial" (1 Sam. 1:15-16).
In 1971, Nixon took the United States dollar off the gold standard. Then in 1973 the U.S. gave Saudi Arabia guarantees of protection in exchange for their selling oil only in U.S. dollars -- called "petrodollars." This monopoly created a demand for the dollar worldwide even though it has no intrinsic value and is not backed by anything physical. By 1975 all of the members of OPEC agreed to sell their oil only in US dollars. Every oil-importing nation in the world started saving their surplus US dollars so they could buy oil. This led to the reserve currency status of the U.S. dollar for all globally-traded commodities. Therefore, the value of the dollar was tied to the demand for the dollar. Massive demand for dollars ensued allowing the Federal Reserve to print more money and make the world "drunk" with fiat Federal Reserve currency. Foreigners support our Federal Reserve in a rich lifestyle in the same way a prostitute is supported. Foreigners hold about 47 percent of US public debt. The largest foreign holder is China. Chinese investors are owed 9.8 percent of US debt. Next comes Japan, at 9.6 percent, and the United Kingdom, at 5.1 percent. Oil exporting nations as a group, including Saudi Arabia, Oman, the United Arab Emirates, etc., account for about 2.6 percent of US debt. Brazil has 1.8 percent. A strong US dollar allowed Americans to buy imported goods at a massive discount -- at the expense of the rest of the world. But the availability of cheap imports hit the US manufacturing industry hard, causing US manufacturing companies to close their businesses. Furthermore, when oil trade shifts to a different currency, countries around the world won't need all their US money. The resulting sell-off of US dollars will cause hyperinflation in the United States. Foreign imports to the U.S. will stop since there is no reason to trade good products for worthless paper. Food will increase in price causing riots and marshall law.
Does the US go to war to protect us from "weapons of mass destruction," or to ensure the continuation of the petrodollar system? When Saddam Hussein sold Iraq's oil for food in euros, not dollars, starting in November 2000, the U.S. invaded Iraq (March 2003). In February 2011 Dominique Strauss-Kahn, managing director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), called for a new world currency to challenge the dominance of the US dollar. Three months later a maid at the Sofitel New York Hotel alleged that Strauss-Kahn sexually assaulted her. Strauss-Kahn was forced out of his role at the IMF within weeks. When the petrodollar was threatened by Khaddafi's Gold-for-Oil Plan, he was killed. There are tensions with Iran in 2012 (cp. Hab. 2:7). Is it because of efforts to develop nuclear weapons? Or because Tehran wants to trade oil for gold, without using petrodollars? Is the value of our dollar now backed by military force? Is that why our military is all around the world -- to protect our petro-dollar status? The U.S. has made the world drunk with fiat petro-dollars just as Rome made the world drunk on false Bible doctrine and Saudi Arabia has made the world drunk on oil. DRUNKENESS refers to ignorance and error in many areas of life. It is the "COVERING cast over all people, and the VEIL that is spread over all nations" (Isa. 25:7) of blindness (2 Cor. 3:14-16).
Flee out of the midst of Babylon ... be not cut off in her iniquity" (Jer. 51:6,45). "Deliver thyself, O Zion, that dwellest with the daughter of Babylon" (Zech. 2:7; Micah 4:10). Physically and spiritually, in type and anti-type. Anciently the Jews had been in Babylonian captivity for 70 years. Their restoration under Cyrus -- an "anointed" "shepherd" (Isa. 44:28; 45:1) -- a type of Christ -- was at hand as soon as Babylon was destroyed. "My people" refers to Israel (Ezekiel 38:16) or to anybody who obeys the Bible (Christians) (Lev. 26:12, Hos. 1:9-10; 2 Cor. 6:16-18). Historically, Jews fled from Babylon to Palestine. The Angles, Saxons, Jutes and Danes fled from the Roman Empire to Britain. Huguenots fled from France to Holland and Britain before the cups of wrath were poured out on France. Britain will come out of the E.E.C. "Common Market." Americans will flee from the "lukewarm" U.S. to Whitehorse Yukon Canada which is "cold" in winter and "hot" in summer. "U.S. of America" adds up to 666 using A=6, B=12, C=18, etc. Here in this verse we are basically told that "PLAGUES" (Strong's #4127) (Rev. 18:4) will fall on pagan America ("Babylon the Great"). What are these PLAGUES? The same ones that fell on the pagan Roman Empire ("Babylon the Great")(Rev. 9:20; 15:1-8; 16:9; 21:9) (Strong's # 4127 again). The same identical word is used because the same punishment or a similar one will happen. In other words, the seals, trumpets and cups all over again using "day for day" (18:8) scale rather than a "day for year" historicist scale. Notice that the "hail" just circles harmlessly near the center of the star chart where Ursa Minor (little flock) is, but "hits" the horizon nearer the periphery. The little flock is spared.
The "voice from heaven" (Rev. 18:4) may be "the coming of Elijah the prophet." God will raise up "Elijah the Prophet," and support him with signs and wonders to "restore all things" (Matt. 17:11) and expose false Roman Catholic doctrines (Isaiah 52:7-8; Isaiah 40:1-10; Malachi 3:1; 4:5-6). God will send to Israel "Elijah the prophet" to turn our hearts back to Him in obedience. Anciently God used Elijah to humiliate and destroy Jezebel's prophets of Baal and protect 7000 saints of God. Then he used John the Baptist to prepare the way for his first coming. Then he used William, Prince of Orange who defeated the followers of Catholicism ("Jezebel") that aimed to persecute Protestant Holland's seven Dutch provinces and Britain. Perhaps Elijah himself will be literally resurrected and "come down from heaven having great power" (18:1) to "restore all things" and "to prepare the way" of the Lord. We don't know. But Elijah said, "How long will you waver between two opinions? If the LORD is God, follow him; but if Baal is God, follow him." (1 Ki. 18:21)? How long will Americans hesitate between serving Catholic statues of Mary and the Saints, and serving the true God of the Bible? Will Americans wait till "Babylon" is in smoking ruins?
Americans should flee up the Milky Way Al-Can Highway to Whitehorse-Sagittarius. Passports must be shown at US/Canada land borders. Recall that the Anglo-Saxons, Jutes and Danes were INVITED to the British Isles over an extended period of time. The namesakes even parallel eachother: Dover, Andover; Normandy, Normandy Park; Britain, British Columbia; tricolor, red-white-and blue; Victoria Station, Victoria. Whitehorse Yukon may be the Place of Safety; "To the church were given two wings or "pterux" (pronounced "trucks") (4420) of a great eagle ("aetos" -- pronounced "autos") that she might fly to her place ("topos") (12:14) (or "topos KUN" -- "place prepared" (12:6) in YuKON the top of the world) where she is nourished" (Rev. 12:14). One truck should be a U-Haul carrying your belongings. The other truck should be your own vehicle pulled on a U-Haul flatbed trailer as back-up just in case you have engine trouble.
"For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities. 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. Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her" (18:5-8).
Her skyscrapers, such as the Empire State Building, Lincoln Center, Rockefeller Center, World Trade Center, etcetera, are filled with sinful activities like the tower of Babel -- Gen. 11:4 (18:5). For example, there are almost 2 million cell phone towers in the US that "reach unto heaven", many on tops of buildings, which emit powerful microwave radiation that has been proven to cause leukemia, brain tumors, cancer, Alzheimer's disease, multiple sclerosis, miscarriage, fibromyalgia and lupus. Reward her double in the CUP which she hath filled. If we put the lunar "cup" in Virgo's hand, it is 300-degree months after 2001, or 25 years, making 2026 when she is rewarded with punishment. Also, the same lunar "cup" is counted from 11 Sep. 2015 filled "double" and so becomes 21 Jan 2017 for the flag pole. Then about a year later, the stripes begin to form -- one per year. Then instead of just TWIN towers and TWO planes in N.Y., the entire U.S. is enslaved by two prison systems. That's why chapter 18 repeats alot. -- Ex. 22:9) (18:6).... she saith in her heart, I sit a queen (purple radius lines; Queens NY), and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow (18:7) (Only world superpower -- Isa. 47:5,8; best space program -- Jer. 51:53). Therefore shall her plagues come in one day (25 Dec 2024, 15° = "one hour" symbolically), death (2,973 victims was a small foretaste), and mourning, and famine (All constellations dressed in black. Famine hasn't happened yet. This is one reason why another worse disaster is coming leaving grocery store shelves bare.); and she shall be utterly burned with fire (everything covered in black ash; Nuclear missiles; EMP): for strong (Samson-like) is the Lord God who judgeth her (18:8).
Like ancient Babylon toasting pagan gods with Israel's Temple utensils while the Medo-Persian armies surround its wall (Isa. 47:1,6-9); like the Church of Rome practising pagan rites using Biblical names as the armies of France or Italy conquered the Papal States; so also disobedient America will be celebrating. Like ancient Babylon's tower that reached heaven (Gen. 11:4), so America's skyscrapers and "sins have reached unto heaven" (Rev.18:5). She repudiates any suggestion that 9-11 was a judgment of God. The Virgin daughter of Babylon (disobedient America) says, "I shall be a lady (Liberty) forever ... the lady (Liberty) of kingdoms ... I shall not sit as a widow, neither shall I know the loss of children." She doesn't realize that Jesus Christ has rejected her because she rejected him. She has lost her husband. Those who obey the Bible must emigrate from New York and from America. Reject any unbiblical lifestyle. Just as Protestant children broke away from the Catholic Church during the Reformation, so also there needs to be another Reformation in our day where true Christians break away from disobedient American lifestyles in order to obey the Bible. God says, "Desolation shall come upon thee (disobedient America) suddenly ... none shall save thee" (Isa. 47:7,5,11,15). Why DOUBLE? "For all manner of trespass, whether it be for ox, for ass, for sheep, for raiment, or for any manner of lost thing, which another challenges to be his, the cause of both parties shall come before the judges; and whom the judges shall condemn, he shall pay DOUBLE unto his neighbor" (Ex. 22:9). Also DOUBLE because America may be composed of TWO nations: one MOSLEM and one CATHOLIC.
"And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning, Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come" (18:9-10).
And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication (worshipped idols -- Ez. 6:9) and lived deliciously with her, shall ... lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning (Milky Way smoke of Twin Towers, Ara) (18:9), Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas that great city Babylon (entire Zodiac represents New York; and then U.S.), that mighty city! for in one hour (literally -- John 11:9) is thy judgment come (Just as the Tower of Babel fell, the World Trade Center also fell down in less than one hour: AA flight 11 crashed into North Tower 8:46 a.m.; UA flight 175 crashed into South Tower 9:03 a.m.; AA flight 77 into Pentagon at 9:37 a.m. -- all three in less than one hour. UA flight 93 crashed near Shanksville, PA at 10:03 a.m.; south tower collapsed 9:58 am and north tower collapsed 10:28 am -- "in one hour") (18:10). Remember that the entire Roman Empire was considered part of the "CITY" of Rome. Therefore, the same is true for New York. By extension, "GREAT CITY" refers to the entire United States just as the region of "Gilead" was called a "city" (Jer. 22:6-8). They "Stand afar off for fear of her (radiation) torment" (18:10).
"The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge (using sign language). They have no (verbal) speech, they use no (vocal) words; no sound is heard from them. Yet their voice (sign language) goes out into all the earth, their (picto-graphic) words to the ends of the world." (Ps. 19:1-4)
Astronomically, the "smoke" is the Milky Way. Historically, the heavy millstone cast into the sea may be the 400-ton fuel pool with 1300 fuel rods 100 feet up in the air in building #4 which is damaged, tilting and sinking at Fukushima. If it falls to the ground in an earthquake and ignites, a radioactive cloud with 13,000 times as much fallout as Hiroshima will hit the west coast of the U.S. in about seven days. Shelter indoors for three months at least. Notice that all the constellations -- fish, birds, animals and humans -- now have cesium particles (stars) in their bodies from the radiation air plume (white Milky Way) and radiation water plume (green Milky Way). Even the rivers (Eridanus; Aquarius; Hydra) contain radiation particles (stars).
"And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more: The merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble, And cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men. And the fruits that thy soul lusted after are departed from thee, and all things which were dainty and goodly are departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more at all" (18:11-14).
When the US dollar loses its petrodollar status, and U.S. Treasury bonds are abandoned by foreign investors, gasoline and food will soar high in price as currency generated by fractional reserve lending hyperinflates till it is worthless. Foreign imports will stop since there is no reason to trade their good products for worthless paper. The U.S. already has a trade deficit with every nation she trades with. Other nations subsidize America. Since our agriculture depends on imported oil (for fertilizer, harvesting & transportation), domestic food production will drop drastically. Will our electric grid fail due to an Electro-Magnetic Pulse or our cities be destroyed by nuclear missiles? (18:11): Gold, silver, precious stones, pearls (all typified by sun, moon, planets or bright stars), fine linen (white clouds), purple, silk (Polo Ralph Lauren & Phillips-Van Heusen & Foot Locker all sell apparel and have HQ in NY), scarlet, thyine wood, vessels of ivory, vessels of wood, brass, iron (Alcoa sells metal and has HQ in NY), marble (Crater) (18:12), And cinnamon, odours, ointments, frankincense (Estee Lauder, Avon and Colgate-Palmolive all sell Household and Personal Products and have HQ in NY), wine, oil (US is world's top importer of oil. Hess sells Oil and has HQ in NY), fine flour, wheat (being poured out of Aquarius's bucket), beasts (Taurus; Leo; Capricorn; Ursa & Canis Major and Minor), sheep (Aries), horses (Pegasus; Sagittarius; Centaur), chariots (Auriga; Leo; Ursa Major and Ursa Minor; cars and trucks. Icahn Enterprises sells motor vehicles and parts and has HQ in NY), slaves (Andromeda & Pisces; employees), and souls of men (18:13). The grocery store shelves are empty -- "the fruits are departed." Even the hardware store is empty -- "departed from thee."
"The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing, And saying, Alas, alas that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls! For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off, And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city! And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! for in one hour is she made desolate" (18:15-19).
To see a smoking city "afar off" is to see it on television. We know "one hour" was literal on 9-11. The United States may also be destroyed in "one hour". New York has priceless art treasures. The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment (harmful dust; radiation fall-out), weeping and wailing (18:15), And saying, Alas, alas that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple (redius lines), and scarlet (radius lines), and decked with gold (Saturn, moon), and precious stones (Mars), and pearls (Mercury)! (glittering stars) (18:16) For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all ... in ships (Argo is a ship; Phoenix and Perseus are boats; Orion and Ursa Major are canoes), and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off (18:17), And cried (star tear drops falling-rotating from their eyes) when they saw the smoke of her burning (Milky Way), saying, What city is like unto this great city! (18:18) And they cast dust on their heads (rotating stars on their heads), and cried ... saying, Alas, alas that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! (A coastal port city) for in one hour is she made desolate The twin towers foreshadow a greater destruction which may involve radiation fallout or "hail" on the U.S. -- 16:21 (18:19).
Astronomically, Argo the ship sees the entire Zodiac typifying New York. Several other constellations have alternate boat imagery. Orion and Ursa Major are both Canoes and Perseus is a celestial boat all watching the entire Zodiac burn.
"Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her. And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all" (18:20-21). This verse may refer to Meccah's destruction -- a city which has exported terrorism against Jews and Christians.
Rejoice over her, thou heaven (Celestial North pole where "little flock" [lesser sheepfold of Little Dipper] dwells -- The Hesperides or "three little maids"), and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her (18:20). And a mighty angel (Orion) took up ... a great millstone (the full moon), and cast it into the sea (Milky Way), (A splash looks like an explosion.) saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon (Meccah?) be thrown down (a guided missile looks like a mortar millstone), and shall be found no more at all (18:21).
"And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee (Broadway Theaters, Radio City Music Hall); and no craftsman, of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more in thee; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in thee; And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee (St. Patrick's Cathedral): for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived. And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth" (18:22-24).
There were 44 kings of Israel and Judah (if we count Absalom) prior to its defeat and captivity and there are now 44 presidents of the United States (if we only count Grover Cleveland once) prior to its predicted destruction. Donald Trump is the 44th president of the U.S.
Astronomically, Hercules is another "mighty angel" and his club is the pestle (used with a mortar) or "millstone" that he also "casts into the sea" of the Milky Way. Historically "Jeremiah wrote in a book all the evil that should come upon Babylon (ch. 51) ... when thou hast finished reading this book ... thou shalt bind a stone to it, and cast it into the midst of the Euphrates ... Thus shall Babylon sink" (Jer. 51:60-64) -- with a "splash-like" display (or an explosion).
Isaiah 26:20 tells us to "enter thou into thy chambers (fallout shelters), and shut thy doors about thee; hide thyself ... until the indignation be past." Just as "the day that Noah entered into the ark the flood came" and just as the "day Lot went out of Sodom, it rained fire and brimstone," so also "when the Son of man is revealed," don't return to your house to get your possessions. "Remember Lot's wife." "Whosoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it" (Luke 17:26-33). Highways will be immediately clogged and vehicles will be useless. "The highways lie waste, the wayfaring man ceaseth: he hath broken the covenant, he hath despised the cities, he regardeth no man" (Isa. 33:8). "Their quiver (missile silo or nuclear reactor) is like an open sepulcher" (Jer. 5:16) and their "horses (missiles?) are swifter than eagles. Woe unto us! For we are spoiled" (radioactive contamination) (Jer. 4:13).
"No craftsmen" are found (18:22) (due to radiation fall-out?) "thy merchants were the great men of the earth" (U.S. companies worldwide); "by thy sorceries" (drugs -- "pharmakeia" #5331) "were all nations deceived" (in a literal sense: Pfizer and Bristol-Myers Squibb pharmaceutical drugs both have HQ in NY; Prescription pain and anxiety drugs are potent, highly addictive and especially dangerous when combined with one another or with other drugs or alcohol. They don't restore a "chemical imbalance" or cure depression. Drugs as a cause of death in 2009, killed at least 37,485 people nationwide, (CDC). Prozac causes users to commit suicide. Ritalin is similar to Cocaine in molecular structure. Among the most commonly abused are OxyContin, Vicodin, Xanax and Soma. The painkiller Fentanyl comes in the form of patches and lollipops and is 100 times more powerful than morphine. Nearly seven out of 10 Americans were prescribed at least one drug in 2009, and half were given two or more, according to new research from the Mayo Clinic. The most commonly prescribed drugs were antibiotics, antidepressants, and painkilling opioids, according to the study, published this week in the journal Mayo Clinic Proceedings. Opoid perscription drugs killed 33,091 Americans in 2015 alone. Estimates put those numbers above 36,000 deaths for 2017.
Also vaccines and genetically modified foods do serious harm and even kill; Philip Morris Int'l has HQ in NY and produces tobacco which is addictive and kills 400,000 Americans per year.) Other sinful deceptions, made to appear harmless, include: 568,903 gay and bisexual individuals in the N.Y. metropolitan area, the largest in the U.S. Same sex marriage became legal on July 24, 2011 in the State of New York. In 1995 there were 8,309 deaths from HIV (AIDS) in New York City. Even as late as 2009 there were still 1600 deaths from HIV in New York City alone. Also abortions (There are 1.6 million abortions per year in the U.S.); X-mas, Easter, Halloween, Bible forbidden in schools; fiat paper currency; evolution; etc.) (18:23). No music heard anymore (18:22) and no light bulb (18:23) both indicate an EMP weapon or nuclear devastation or tsunami. Both Yemen and Pakistan had their electrical power grid sabotaged by terrorists recently. And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth (persecution of Christians and Jews by Moslems and Catholics in America) (18:24). Thus, "when the Son of man cometh, shall he find (the true) faith on the earth?" (Luke 18:8) Red radius lines indicate blood. Estimates are between 400 and 500 Jews died in the Twin Towers attacks on 9/11. The figure would have been higher had it not been for the fact that many Orthodox Jews went to work an hour later because of the Selichot prayers recited in the days before the Jewish New Year. The number of Jews who died in the World Trade Center attacks is not known because the official New York City 'Missing Persons List' does not categorize victims by their religion or nationality. But the list of the names of the dead includes many Jewish names such as Adler, Aron, Berger, Bernstein, Cohen, Eichler, Eisenberg, Feinberg, Friedlander, Goldstein, Greenstein, Horwitz, Jablonski, Kestenbaum, Kirchbaum, Kleinberg, Levi, Levine, Mayer, Rosenberg, Rosenblum, Rosenthal, Sachs, Safronoff, Schwartz, Shulman, Shwartzstein, Silverstein, Solomon, Steinman, Temple, Weil, Weinberg, Weingard, Weinstein, Weiss, and Zukelman. They didn't get a conspiratorial cell-phone message warning them to stay home. By all appearances, the 9-11 hijackers were equal-opportunity murderers.
From chapter 17 till chapter 18 the sun moves 130 degree-years, so from 1870 when Rome fell politically and religiously (ten-horned Cancer burns Virgo -- 17:16), till 2001 when New York fell economically from world dominance (earth brightened with glory of Hercules coming down from heaven -- 18:1), is 130 years. These two chapters go together just as Rome, New York, Meccah and America are all aspects of Babylon. The time element from 18:1 when Hercules comes down from heaven and the earth is brightened with his glory till the sun arrives in Sagittarius's head (19:12) is 25 degrees or 25 years from 2001 (Rev. 18) to 2026 (Rev. 19) when our Lord returns.
If we add 168° months (14 years) to 11 Sep 2001, we get 11 Sep 2015 (MOON in Taurus: "a mighty angel took up a (mill) STONE...and cast it into the sea" "with violence" 15° clockwise into the Milky Way in an hour -- 18:21) when a "powerful" (18:1) storm toppled a construction at the Grande Mosque in Meccah killing at least 111 people and injuring 394 others -- "death and mourning" (18:8). The two horns of Taurus are two booms that have "fallen ... fallen" (18:2). The longer boom collapsed through the ceiling creating an enormous crater in the mosque's white-tiled "stone" (18:21) third floor and trapped pilgrims under the debris. The "stone" was "cast into the sea" (18:21) of Muslim humanity circumambulating around the Kaaba. An "hour" (18:10) before the disaster, Mecca was experiencing heavy rains, lightning strikes, and winds up to 50 mph. The Saudi Binladin Group ("hateful birds" -- 18:2) was found negligent and fined one million SR for each permanently disabled victim, one million SR for each of the deceased's families, and 500,000 for each injured victim.
Counting from 11 Sept. 2015 using a °day scale, the lunar cup is placed in Virgo's hand, when flags are seen and harps and pan flutes are heard on 21 Jan 2017. The last 15° represent "one hour" when America dies and the Stars and Stripes are at half mast covering America's dead corpse. "Double" indicates the United States will be transformed into two separate nations -- each with its own prison system. From 11 Sept. 2001 + 300° months = 2026 (CRESCENT in Virgo: "in the CUP which she hath filled, fill to her DOUBLE " -- 18:6). At the return of our Lord and Savior, Islamistan and Aztlan (composing what was formerly the U.S.) will be punished?
We believe the U.S. ("Babylon") may split in half with ten western states becoming Roman Catholic and the eastern U.S. becoming Moslem -- just as historically happened in Europe ("Babylon") for 1260 years. Just as the twin towers were destroyed on 9-11-2001 (historicist) by Moslem martyrs who came down from heaven, we believe it is a type of America splitting in half as it is enslaved and destroyed by an EMP the next time around (futurist) by Islamistan and Aztlan. This is indicated by "is fallen, is fallen" (18:2) and "double" mentioned three times (18:6). Also by the historical precedent set in Europe indicating two separate prison systems. "Babylon" U.S. may be destroyed by Medes (Ukrainian Russia -- Deut. 28:49 & Jer. 5:15 "far" is Heb. "rachoq") and Persians ("u pharsin" or Iran)," or embedded Chinese and even N. Korea -- "kings of the east" -- using "hail" (Rev.16:21; 11:19). Then the culprits responsible will be destroyed by our Lord as anti-type of Samson and King Cyrus when he returns. "The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done, is that which shall be done" (Eccl. 1:9). God says, "I change not" (Mal. 3:6). He is "the same yesterday, today and forever" (Heb. 13:8)
