MYSTERY BABYLON IS AMERICA
(From: ‘Is America in Bible Prophecy?’ Pastor John Kilpatrick)
Sunday September 13, 2015
PASTOR KILPATRICK TELLS US LIKE HE SEES IT
“The Holy Bible does not literally say America is ‘Mystery Babylon’—in so many words—but in prophetic terms, in Isaiah, in Jeremiah, and in Revelation, the biblical description of our land, our nation, America, is un-mistakenly recognizable. Don’t get me wrong, I love America. But America is in (deep) trouble. Thank God for America!” Pastor John said.(all parens are mine)
[The texts for today’s message is 2 Peter 2:4-23; thru 3:9-17, which Pastor read.]
GOD’S RIGHTEOUSNESS IS AT ISSUE FOR AMERICA
4 For if God did not spare the angels who sinned, but cast them down to hell and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved for judgment; 5 and did not spare the ancient world, but saved Noah, one of eight people, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood on the world of the ungodly; 6 and turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes, condemned them to destruction, making them an example to those who afterward would live ungodly; 7 and delivered righteous Lot, who was oppressed by the filthy conduct of the wicked 8 (for that righteous man, dwelling among them, tormented his righteous soul from day to day by seeing and hearing their lawless deeds)— 9 then the Lord knows how to deliver the godly (Americans) out of temptations and to reserve the unjust under punishment for the day of judgment, 10 and especially those (Americans) who walk according to the flesh in the lust of uncleanness and despise authority. They are presumptuous, self-willed. They are not afraid to speak evil of dignitaries, 11 whereas angels, who are greater in power and might, do not bring a reviling accusation against them before the Lord.
AMERICA IS CORRUPT
12 But these (Americans), like natural brute beasts made to be caught and destroyed, speak evil of the things they do not understand, and will utterly perish in their own corruption, 13 and will receive the wages of unrighteousness, as those who count it pleasure to carouse in the daytime. They are spots and blemishes, carousing in their own deceptions while they feast with you, 14 having eyes full of adultery and that cannot cease from sin, enticing unstable souls. They have a heart trained in covetous practices, and are accursed children. 15 They have forsaken the right way and gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Beor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness; 16 but he was rebuked for his iniquity: a dumb donkey speaking with a man’s voice restrained the madness of the prophet.
17 These are (American) wells without water, clouds[mists] carried by a tempest, for whom is reserved the blackness of darkness forever.
AMERICA’S LEADERS ARE NOT TRUSTWORTHY
18 For when they (American leaders) speak great swelling words of emptiness, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through lewdness, the ones who have actually escaped [barely] from those who live in error. 19 While they promise them liberty, they themselves are slaves of corruption; for by whom a person is overcome, by him also he is brought into bondage. 20 For if, after they (Americans) have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled in them and overcome, the latter end is worse for them than the beginning. 21 For it would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than having known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered to them. 22 But it has happened to them according to the true proverb: “A dog returns to his own vomit,”[Prov. 26:11] and, “a sow, having washed, to her wallowing in the mire.”
BUT OUR LOVING GOD IS FAITHFUL
9 The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some (Americans) count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us,[extraordinarily patient] not willing that any (Americans) should perish but that all should come to repentance.
10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the [material] elements [of the universe] will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up. 11 Therefore, since all these (American) things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, 12 looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be dissolved, being on fire, and the elements will melt with fervent heat? 13 Nevertheless we (Americans), according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness [uprightness, freedom from sin, and right standing with God] dwells.
CALL TO THE AMERICAN FAITHFUL
14 Therefore, beloved (American), looking forward to these things, be diligent to be found by Him in peace, without spot and blameless; 15 and consider that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation—as also our beloved brother Paul, according to the wisdom given to him, has written to you, 16 as also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things, in which are some things hard to understand, which untaught and unstable (American) people twist to their own destruction, as they do also the rest of the Scriptures.
17 You therefore, beloved (Americans), since you know this beforehand, beware lest you also fall from your own steadfastness, being led away with the error of the wicked . . .” The Pastor said reading (New KJV). (My parens added for effect)
“HAPPY SH’MITAH! (Hebrew for release)”
“Does it seem odd to you that the greatest nation in the world is not mentioned in the Holy Bible? In the 1970’s, the Lord showed me this startling message. A revelation—shocking and suspicious; three different places is Mystery Babylon mentioned. Babylon was the large city in Iraq that was built by Nimrod. (see Map showing location) A rich city where the tower was built. The ‘Ziggurat’ it was called as an attempt to reach heaven. [This was stopped by God giving new languages to people where each family spoke different methods of communication.]
“So the literal meaning of Babylon was ‘confusion’ then, and the end time location is kept a ‘mystery’ as an end-time nation, must become a harlot church, an evil religious institution.” He said.
DEFINE AN EVIL RELIGIOUS INSTITUTE FROM ‘CONFUSING MYSTERY’
“Isaiah 18:1 (KJV) Woe to the land shadowing with wings, which is beyond the rivers of Ethiopia.” (shown on large screen with the presidential eagle symbol)
The great seal of the United States of America by Charles Thompson, 1782 (Wikipedia)
“Any time Scripture says ‘woe’, this indicates terrible judgment. And ‘shadowing with wings’, is a symbolic bird that represents a land far beyond the Ethiopian rivers.
Verse 2 and 3; “Which sends ambassadors by sea, even in vessels of reed on the waters, saying, ‘Go, swift messengers, to a nation tall and smooth of skin, to a people terrible from their beginning onward, a nation powerful and treading down. Whose land the rivers divide. All the inhabitants of the world and dwellers on the earth; when he lifts up a banner on a mountain, you see it; and when he blows a trumpet you hear it.”
“A land that is ‘scattered and peeled’. (highlighted on the screen), another says ‘tall and bronzed’ (NJB). Is this a view of the USA? As a nation divided up—by rivers—and meeted out: States, counties, townships, land where rivers divide — are spoiled, polluted. And, verse 7, ‘Then, a present (offering) will be brought to the Lord of Hosts; from a people tall and smooth of skin; and from a people terrible from their beginning onward, a nation powerful and treading down, whose land the rivers divide – to the place of the name of the Lord of Hosts, to Mount Zion.’ ” Pastor said.
“AMERICA EASILY FULFILLS THIS DESCRIPTION”
Jeremiah 50:9 (shown on the big screen), “A great nation from the north country, I will raise up, and their arrows will be like those of an expert warrior. None shall return in vain.” This describes missiles that are set even now located in underground silos in Russia that are already programed to destroy every large city in America – the Holy Bible tells us about this!”
And verse 12, “Your mother shall be deeply ashamed.” Speaks of our parent country, Great Britain. “Behold the least of the nations, shall be a wilderness, a dry land and a desert.” Describing the desolate (American) state of growing drought—or total devastation.
Verse 19, “But I will bring back Israel to his home, and he shall feed on Carmel and Bashan; his soul shall be satisfied on Mount Ephraim and Gilead.”
“And she (Israel) has been proud against the Lord, the Holy One of Israel, but we (Americans) have become apostate, corrupt because our courts have excommunicated our schools from God. They have authorized abortion making judgments against the Lord’s law. Also in June the (American) Court of the Land rewrote laws of marriage—proudly sinning—causing an egregious affront to our constitutional protection.” Pastor said.
Verse 37, “A sword is against their (American) horses, against their chariots, and against their mixed peoples who are in their midst; and they will become (weak and defenseless) like women; a sword is against her treasures, and they will be plundered!” America is the melting pot (dumping ground) of the world.
Verse 51:7, “Babylon (America) was a golden cup in the Lord’s hand, that made all the earth drunk. The nations drank her wine. Therefore, the nations are deranged.” We are a wealthy nation producing many exports including fine wines. Verse 13, “Oh you (Americans) who dwell by many waters, abundant in treasures, your end has come, the measure of your covetousness.
“This description of our nation dwelling by many waters, shows the big picture of lakes and oceans and gulf. What other nation has this?” Pastor said.
AMERICA’S END IS COME
Verse 53, “Though Babylon (America) were to mount up to heaven, and though she were to fortify the height of her strength, yet from Me plunderers will come to her.” Says the Lord. Reference is made to (America’s) ability to claim the moon, and still many spoilers (terrorists) will come.” Pastor said.
Revelation 18:1-2, “And I saw another angel coming down from heaven and having great authority, and the earth was illuminated with his glory,
“SHE IS FALLEN! MIGHTY BABYLON THE GREAT IS FALLEN!”
“(America) is fallen, and has become a dwelling-place of demons, a prison for every foul spirit, and a cage for every unclean and hated bird.
Verse 3, “For all the nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath or her (America’s) fornication, the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich through the abundance of her luxury.”
“The rich wares of our nation (America); all delicacies: automobiles, wines, t-shirts show us how world distribution was successful when emigrants are wearing Chicago Bulls logo design—symbolic of Americanism. Our foreign aid pays 150 billion dollars to Iran alone! Why not use such funds to house our own homeless?” Someone said.
THE CALL FOR ISRAEL TO COME OUT FROM AMERICA
Verse 4, “I heard another voice out of heaven call, COME OUT OF HER, MY PEOPLE, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues . . . (verse 7) “For (America says) I sit as queen, and am no widow, and will not see sorrow . . .”
Verses 8-13, “Therefore, her (America’s) plagues will come in one day—death mourning famine and utterly burned with fire—for strong is the LORD God who judges her.”
. . . Verse 10, “That Great city of Babylon (America)”; they cried, Woe and alas! In one single hour your doom overtakes you! . . . Verse 11, And the merchants of the earth will mourn over her . . . all the products, including the souls of men.”
Verses 14-16, All (America)—have gone from you, and you shall find them no more at all.” The lament of the loss of their economy. . .
Verse 17-21, “For in one hour such great (American) riches came to nothing. . . They threw dust on their heads when they saw it burning. “What is like this great city?” Shipmasters said.
. . . And the mighty angel, ‘Rejoice over her (America) O heaven! And you holy apostles and prophets, for God has avenged you on her!’ And threw a mighty millstone into the ocean—and thus shall the great city Babylon be thrown down.”
Revelation 16:18,19, “And there were noises and thunderings and lightnings, and there was a great earthquake, such a mighty and great earthquake as had not occurred since men were on the earth.
“Now the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell. And great Babylon (America) was remembered before God, to give her the cup of the fierceness of his wrath.”
Jeremiah 51:42, “The sea has come up over Babylon (America), she is covered with the multitude of its waves. . . 50:32, “I will kindle a fire in the cities of the most proud who shall stumble, and it will devour all (America) around him.”
AMERICA VULNERABLE TO ELECTROMAGNETIC PULSES (EMP’s)
A solar flare could do this, or one bomb exploded 20 miles above the earth, and the electrical power grid will fail. Two verses: Jer. 5:22,23; Is. 47:5. Into darkness:
“Do you not fear me? Says the Lord . . . But this (American) people has a defiant and rebellious heart; they have revolted and departed.
Isaiah 47:5, “Sit in silence and go into darkness, O daughter of the Chaldeans (Babylon-America), for you shall no longer be called the Lady of the Kingdoms . . . And (verse 7) you said, ‘I shall be a lady forever’, so that you did not take (my warnings) to heart, nor remember their result.
. . . (verse 9) in a moment, in one day . . . (verse 10) for you (America) have trusted in your wickedness, . . . (verse 11) And sudden desolation shall come which you shall not know. And verse 14, They shall be (America) as stubble—nobody shall save you”
I LOVE AMERICA!
The pastor exclaimed his love for America, because God is beginning to reveal her true nature, America is called the Whore of Babylon in the Holy Bible. Revelation 17:1-5,
“Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls said, ‘Come, I will show you the judgment of the great harlot (America) who sits on many waters, with whom the many kings of the earth committed fornication . . .
“And I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast which was full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads (demonic principalities) and ten horns (sovereign nations). The woman (America) was dressed in purple and scarlet (red-white and blue), with much jewelry, holding a golden cup full of abominations, and the filthiness of her fornication.
“And on her forehead a name was written: MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS . . .”
Isaiah 17:7,8, “In that day, a man will look to his maker, and his eyes will have respect for the Holy One of Israel. He will not look to the altars, the work of his hands; he will not respect what his fingers have made, nor images, nor incense.”
Revelation 18:7, “I sit as queen—in the measure that she (America) glorifies herself and lived in luxury, will she suffer torment and sorrow, for what she said in her heart—I sit as queen, and am no widow, and will not see sorrow.”
“The Holy Bible personifies the image of a woman widely known as an American symbol, the Statue of Liberty. Let me show you what her designer, Frederic Auguste Bartholdi in research of her shape decided to use the Egyptian goddess.
(Pastor showed pictures of sculptures and called them ancient depictions of Isis or Ishtar, and that Bartholdi decided to call it ‘Libertas’ which is a mythological equivalent to the Mother of Prostitution that wore a crown just like our Liberty)
Then Pastor John showed videos and camera angles of the New York harbor where ‘Liberty’ is located, that now represents America’s Democracy—still the symbol of the mother of prostitution—the whore of Babylon.
“What this has done to America, as the most famous sex goddess—over 65% of world porn comes from America. In any city in the world, an adult can find all kinds of porn. Preachers cry out, and God is trying to protect wife and family and communities. We need to hear this!” Pastor said.
“Sexual liberation began here in America having no shame, all in the public eye. Revelation 18:3, ‘For all the nations have drunk of the wine of her fornications. The kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich through the abundance of her luxury.” He said.
Pastor showed a drawing of the world illustrating this. Then he became emotional and depressed, not wanting to show us symbols of pride . . . the dome of our Capitol building and the obelisk of the Washington monument. He showed the dimensions of both that commonly divided into 666 numerically. Representing the female womb, and the male erect penis (phallic symbol), America’s authority is replicating the Roman Vatican as well. (See this link to pictures shown)
Then the demonic pentagram laid out in the capitol streets with the Capitol Building at the lower apex, is seen from the map of streets—having seen before but not so high-lighted. This emulates the philosophy of Freemason Johann Wolfgang von Goethe who designed such an Illuminati symbol into the Capitol.
“This is not conspiracy-theory, but from history, so we can relate it with Truth.” Pastor said as he concluded.
“America, America, God shed his grace on thee . . .” He sang the short verse, emotionally (sentimentally).
“The end of America could happen any time. Do you believe the Scripture is true? Other church leaders are teaching this material. God is making his children aware of his righteous will. According to current events, our greatness as a nation has almost disappeared.
“The Great Whore is standing in the New York harbor. . . I’ve preached this every year since the seventies. Nobody wants this prophecy to happen. Pray for God to shake our leader! Wake him up! Let him see this!
“I am not a doomsayer! This warning is from me. This is not political—this is spiritual! We need revival! Shout Amen! This is only a heads-up. There are no regrets for what is said here—in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ—and as of today things can change: Repentance of America is possible if not probable.”
The service was ended with a call for prayer . . . In the name of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. Amen.
[Editor’s note: This edition is made to clarify how God–who knows the end before the beginning–could possibly put words in the mouths of his prophets, 3500-2000 years ago, to tell of the last day, how our country does fullfill his words like no other country. . .because for America to become a ‘Great City’, it only has to continue as our young history has already demonstrated–being open to evil by tolerating every culture, and every religion, and giving everyone free choice not to respect the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. . .Everyone will come to our country so that they will fill up all of the available land, that will expand all utilities and every community, even with federal economy. It will take time for America to become one large, ‘great city’. The conclusion of this message is comforting, God’s judgment is coming, but the signs of the times confirm the timing is secondary and the reality of the certainty of the Truth about what deserves to be judged becomes clearer. It will be like the day of Noah. My vision tells me God’s merciful-lovingkindness is patient so that all can come to repentance–to be saved from the coming wrath. I can only hope you agree.]
May God bless and keep you,
