America is not the new Babylon

This should be very simple. The Babylon of the old saints was an enemy of Israel. Not once did Israel side with Babylon in Babylon's wars except as slaves. Just read the Good Book. America happens to have an alliance with Israel and has had since 1948. If you are looking for a modern day Babylon, search elsewhere and make no statements until you research the issue in depth. Thank God you have read thes and Rev which is full of warnings of what we need to do to go in the rapture.

Reply from Watchman Bob: No, it's not quite that simple. Although America has, on the surface, pretended to be pro-Israel, behind the scenes, the nation has been anti-Semitic and has undermined the State of Israel. When a shipload of Jewish refugees fled to America in WW2, the ship was turned away, returned to Europe, and the Jews perished in the Holocaust. George Prescott Bush, the father of President George H. Bush, supported the Nazis. President Barack Obama told Israel "I have your back," but he then supported Iran and other Islamic nations against Israel. President Trump pretends to support Israel, but is pressuring Israel to give in to the Palestinians and divide the nation of Israel. In the end, America-Babylon, like every other nation that treacherously undermines the security of Israel will be destroyed.

That America is an enemy of Israel goes back further. It is a known and documented fact that, during the 1930's, two Wall Street lawyers who were brothers, by the names of John Foster and Allen Dulles acted as agents for big American oil companies to obtain money to fund the rise of the Nazi regime. The reason? - at that time, the Saudi's had predominately all of the oil rich lands in the Middle East.

In order to gain access and drilling rights to these areas, oil companies had to appease the Saudi's. By funding the growth of the Nazi war machine - which was dedicated, as we all know(or should know) to the total extermination of the Jewish race, Ibn Saud's hate for Jews mentality(which goes back to the days of Hagar and Ishmael) was quenched.

The door was open wide for America to drill in the Middle East, 6 million Jews(that we know about were killed, John Foster and Allen Dulles became head of the CIA and Secretary of State under President Eisenhower's administration, and everybody was happy - at the expense of Israel. Once again, it’s all about money. America is no friend of Israel. ("The Secret War of the Jews: How American Espionage Betrayed the Jewish People". John Loftus and Mark Aarons)

Reply from Watchman Bob: Yes - more support for the truth that the U.S.A. is modern Babylon the Great - no true friend of Israel.

Could it be that Jerusalem and not America is the end time Babylon?
Some have thought that Rome is the end time Babylon.

Reply from Watchman Bob: No, for several reasons, it is not possible that Jerusalem is end-times Babylon. In its present state of godlessness, Jerusalem is compared in the Bible to Egypt and Sodom (Revelation 11:8), but not to Babylon. Also, in the end, modern Babylon the Great will be totally destroyed (Revelation 17:16; 18:21), but the King of Kings will rule from New Jerusalem (Psalm 48:1-2; Revelation 21:10; 23). Nowhere does Scripture state that Babylon will be replaced by New Babylon after it is destroyed. The notion that Jerusalem is Babylon is a Replacement Theology doctrine - attempting the replace Israel with the Church.

And yes, many assert that Rome is Babylon, but that view fails to see the big picture. Rome and the Roman Catholic Church is a foreshadow or type of Babylon the Great, but doesn't come close to fulfilling all the Bible prophecies about Babylon the Great. America is the only city-state/nation/empire that does that.
