America is NOT mentioned in the Bible. Why? Discernment.
America (5) Divided, Split, Cut, or Fractured and Separated into FIVE ‘5’ Pieces:
Zechariah 12:3 And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.
Matthew 12:25 And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand:
Mark 3:24 And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.
Mark 3:25 And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand.
Luke 11:17 But he, knowing their thoughts, said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and a house divided against a house falleth.
Luke 12:53 The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother in law against her daughter in law, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.
The US Government has become politically divided and is in discord and disunity. The political division affecting and splitting America is a direct result of its efforts to ‘divide Jerusalem’ via the ‘Deal of the Century’ or the regional covenant of peace and security in the Middle East. Throughout scripture, God has made it abundantly clear that Jerusalem is the ‘apple of his eye’ and has his stamp of ownership on it … above all other cities on earth. God makes it adequately clear in Zechariah 12:3 that any nation that attempts to cut or divide up Jerusalem, will themselves be cut up or divided. As such, the US is cut or divided politically because of its leadership role in attempting to split God’s Holy City of earthly Jerusalem. Plain and simple.
OK. So it’s clear about the accelerating implosion of political unity in the US. Political discord will get worse and become angrier, antagonistic, confrontational, and hateful with little to no compromise, concession, agreement or unity. Contempt and distrust rules the day. Some would say this is already the case not only between Democrats and Republicans, but also within each party. Whether you believe the US being extremely divided is a result of God’s wrath for its role in dividing Jerusalem or not, it doesn’t matter. The fact remains that the US is becoming bitterly more and more divided. This division has also taken place in culture (LGBTQP+ social inclusiveness agenda), economics (income inequality), etc. The list can go on. America is divided on so many levels, not just politically.
Why is there no mention of the ‘United’ States in Bible Prophecy?
Prophetic Discernment: Seven (7) year ‘book-end’ solar eclipses, August 2017 to April 2024. God’s divine completion to His plan or purpose for the once powerful and great ‘United’ States. Seven (7) spirits affected; Financially, Politically, Militarily, Geographically, Geo-Politically, Spiritually and Socially. 2024 will likely be when the Beast assumes authority over all the nations of the earth, INCLUDING the ‘Untied’ States. 2025 marks the ‘start’ of the final 3.5 years of the tribulation where God PERSONALLY and supernaturally protects Israel in Petra. No further need of the United States to be Israel’s ‘Big Brother’ watching over her and protecting her and giving her financial aid. By the start of 2024, the once ‘United’ States will have descended into anarchy, chaos, rebellion, the bottomless pit, despair, insolvency and strife. And irrelevancy, divide, confusion, bitterness, family against family and against its self, discord and despondency. For 70 (7) years, the United States was Israel’s ‘worldly’ protector and benefactor (1948-2018). The American ‘millennium or empire’ lasted from 1620 to 2020. 400 years. America has been wandering ‘in the desert’ for 400 years and time has expired. 40(0) is a time or period of ‘trial or testing.’
Watchman Mr. Greg Laurie ‘All the More Urgent’ Monday, January 18, 2021
“This is all the more urgent, for you know how late it is; time is running out. Wake up, for our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed” (Romans 13:11 NLT).
I think we could make a very good case for finding Russia in Bible prophecy. I think we could make a pretty good case for finding China in Bible prophecy. And we certainly could make an airtight case for finding Iran in Bible prophecy—and Israel as well. But we cannot find the United States of America.
How is it that the reigning superpower on the planet today doesn’t seem to be mentioned?
No one knows the answer, but let’s consider an option. What if the Rapture were to take America out of its lead role?
There are approximately 328.2 million people in the United States. For the sake of illustration, I’ll round that number to 300 million. I don’t know how many are followers of Christ, but I read recently that 65 percent of Americans identify as Christians.
To be very conservative, let’s say that 10 percent of the people in the United States of America are Christians. Now, imagine for a moment what would happen if 30 million people (or more) suddenly were to leave Planet Earth in the Rapture—people who work in industries, government, the military, and every area imaginable.
Do you think that would affect our nation?
Of course it would. Effectively, America would collapse overnight.
I don’t know the reason our nation isn’t mentioned in Bible prophecy, but I do know this: Jesus Christ is returning. The Bible says, “This is all the more urgent, for you know how late it is; time is running out. Wake up, for our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed” (Romans 13:11 NLT).
If you’re a believer who’s living a compromised life, you need to repent and get right with God. And if you don’t have a relationship with Jesus Christ, then you’ve got to wake up and get right with God. Wake up. Jesus is coming. Are you ready?
Revelation 6:2 And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.
Commentary; the rider is the ‘beast’ or ‘antichrist’. His being clothed in white suggests ‘3’ false righteousness, false peace and false authority. He has a bow, but no arrows. He rules with lies and threats, but no military or arms. He conquers and subjugates, not with force but with ‘5’ lies, deception, false covenants and false agreements and false promises. He is the world’s greatest ‘political’ leader and deceiver. He is the one who ‘confirms the false covenant of seven years with Jacob’ which starts the tribulation. You should know now of who I speak. His ‘crown’ represents authority, rulership and position. It even literally represents his ‘position’ as Crown Prince, once the tribulation begins. My discernment is that the ‘white horse upon which he sits’ is symbolically a white Arabian stallion.
Who is the ‘First Horseman of the Apocalypse that Rides a White Arabian Stallion?
Revelation 13:7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and POWER was ‘GIVEN’ him (Prince, Beast, Antichrist) over ALL kindreds, and tongues, and NATIONS.
The Antichrist; ‘A King of Dark Sentences’ (political language, false agreements, deceiving covenants, lies, back-room dealing, deception, intrigue, announcements and deceiving doctrines and programs.)
23 “ And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up.
24 And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practice, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people.
25 And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand.” (Daniel 8:23-25)
The Decline of an ‘Empire.’ From concerning to terrifying: 7 horrible milestones on horizon for bloated federal budget. Threat is that America could ‘cease to be a nation’.
By WND News Services Published March 2, 2023 at 1:35pm
A character in Ernest Hemingway’s first novel, “The Sun Also Rises,” explains how he went bankrupt: “Gradually and then suddenly.”
Americans who have fallen deep into credit card debt or had to rely on high-interest, payday loans probably can relate.
As a borrower’s debt mounts and his credit score is downgraded, creditors demand higher and higher interest rates for additional lending. It’s like you’re gradually drifting down the river and as you approach the rapids ahead, the current suddenly accelerates.
The budget office—commonly known as the CBO—can’t predict exactly how long we have before we hit the rapids or go over the falls. But the CBO report offers a clear warning that it’s time to do the hard work of rowing back upstream.
If the federal government keeps going with the flow, at some point we’re in for a painful plunge in the form of a catastrophic debt or financial crisis.
When it becomes clear that the nation’s debt is spiraling out of control with no plans to turn things around, investors eventually will lose faith in U.S. debt as a safe asset. Ever higher interest rates will be necessary to entice investors, drowning the nation’s finances and the economy under a sea of debt.
What follows are seven eye-poppingly alarming budget milestones that CBO says await us under the hopeful assumption that interest rates remain basically unchanged over 30 years.
Since the start of the pandemic, CBO’s interest rate assumptions have been optimistic at best; last year, the agency underestimated interest costs for fiscal year 2022 by $76 billion. If interest rates continue to spike, things will go south much more quickly than CBO’s latest forecast suggests.
2023: Forecast Interest Payments Jump 45%
One of the most troubling things about the latest Congressional Budget Office forecast on President Joe Biden’s watch is how much the budget situation has deteriorated compared to last year’s forecast, released in May.
Last year, CBO projected that 2023 net interest payments would total $442 billion. It’s been less than a year, and now CBO expects that annual interest payments for 2023 will be about $200 billion higher, at $640 billion. That 45% correction is mostly the result of rapidly rising interest rates since last year.
Even if interest rates rise no further than they already have—which CBO optimistically forecasts—net interest payments would continue to soar because over time a growing share of currently outstanding Treasurys (securities sold by the federal government to investors) must be issued at the new high rates.
2026: Americans Face Across-the-Board Tax Hikes
The Congressional Budget Office assumes that the scheduled expiration of the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act will occur, and beginning Jan. 1, 2026, Americans across all income groups will face a multitrillion-dollar tax increase.
Tax rates would rise on individuals across the board, and the standard deduction would be cut in half.
The looming tax hike would be painful for American families who already are being squeezed economically. But it wouldn’t meaningfully improve America’s debt situation.
Our overspending would continue plunging us toward a debt crisis, as the CBO milestones below demonstrate. However, we’d enter the debt crisis more overtaxed and economically weakened.
Our fiscal problems can’t be solved with more taxes.
2027: Debt’s Portion of GDP Triples in 20 Years
The Congressional Budget Office report also shows that the federal debt held by the public will rise to roughly 105% of gross domestic product in 2027.
That means the debt will be about three times larger as a share of the economy than it was in 2007, when the debt-to-GDP ratio was a “mere” 35% of GDP. Over that 20-year period, the debt will have grown about eight times faster than the economy.
2028: Annual Interest on Debt Hits $1 Trillion, Surpassing Defense Spending
Annual net interest payments, which totaled $352 billion in 2021, will soar to about $1 trillion in 2028, according to the Congressional Budget Office.
For the first time, the government will spend more on interest payments—a whopping 13% of federal outlays—than on the nation’s defense.
In fact, the government will spend more as a share of the overall economy on interest payments to service the debt (3.1%) than was spent on the entire federal government a century before (3%).
By this point, Social Security, Medicare, and net interest will consume 52% of federal outlays, leaving lawmakers with a difficult path to fiscal sustainability.
2032-2033: Medicare, Social Security Become Insolvent
The Social Security trust fund will be fully depleted in 2032, according to the Congressional Budget Office.
Once the Social Security trust fund is exhausted, if lawmakers do nothing, beneficiaries would face 23% across-the-board cuts in benefits.
Similarly, CBO projects that the Medicare Hospital Insurance trust fund will be exhausted in 2033.
2046: Debt Hits $100 Trillion
Based on the CBO report, debt held by the public will pass the $100 trillion mark in 2046.
In nominal terms, that’s more than four times the size of the current debt and roughly as large as the entire world economy in 2022.
2053: Each Household’s Share of Debt Reaches $1 Million
The Congressional Budget Office projects that the national debt will soar to $155 trillion in 2053, putting the debt per household at a staggering $1 million.
If America falls this far, it would cease to be a nation. Federal outlays—to say nothing of state and local government spending—would exceed 30% of the economy in 2053, according to CBO.
Our children and grandchildren would carry the unbearable burden of the debts we are laying at their feet. With $6 trillion of annual interest payments on the debt, they would fall further and further behind as the national debt grows by $9 trillion per year and accelerates.
CBO’s budget outlook unmistakably shows we’re on an unsustainable path. Investors—whether domestic or foreign—can’t be expected to buy up Treasury securities to the tune of $1 million per U.S. household.
No rational investors—let alone enough to cover $155 trillion of debt—would consider Treasury securities to be a sound investment unless they had sky-high interest rates to compensate them for the risk.
Why Another ‘Clean’ Increase in Debt Ceiling Would Be Reckless
The United States is running up against its current statutory debt limit. For the Treasury to go on accumulating debt beyond this summer, Congress would have to approve a higher debt ceiling.
Before agreeing to an increase in the debt ceiling, the GOP-led House of Representatives wants to secure some spending cuts or budget reforms to begin the process of getting the nation’s finances back on track.
The White House has said it will accept only a “clean” debt ceiling increase with no spending cuts attached. Biden claims that conditioning the debt ceiling increase on spending reforms is reckless, saying, “I’m not going to get into the reckless threats that take the economy hostage in order to force an agenda that’s going to only limit American workers and weaken us internationally.”
That thinking couldn’t be more backward.
Since Biden took office in January 2021, lawmakers have brought us closer to the edge, setting us on course to smash previous expectations for the budget deficit by an incredible $6 trillion over 10 years.
Talk about reckless.
The only thing that will stop us from going over the cliff eventually is if lawmakers get serious about cutting spending before it’s too late. The only responsible action is to reverse course.
But how can they call on him (Jesus Christ) to save them unless they believe in him (Jesus Christ)? And how can they believe in him (Jesus Christ) if they have never heard about him (Jesus Christ)? And how can they hear about him (Jesus Christ) unless someone tells them?” —Romans 10:14
