Revelation 18:1-10 ESV
After this I saw another angel coming down from heaven, having great authority, and the earth was made bright with his glory. And he called out with a mighty voice,
“Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great!
She has become a dwelling place for demons,
a haunt for every unclean spirit,
a haunt for every unclean bird,
a haunt for every unclean and detestable beast.
For all nations have drunk
the wine of the passion of her sexual immorality,
and the kings of the earth have committed immorality with her,
and the merchants of the earth have grown rich from the power of her luxurious living.”
Then I heard another voice from heaven saying,
“Come out of her, my people,
lest you take part in her sins,
lest you share in her plagues;
for her sins are heaped high as heaven,
and God has remembered her iniquities.
Pay her back as she herself has paid back others,
and repay her double for her deeds;
mix a double portion for her in the cup she mixed.
As she glorified herself and lived in luxury,
so give her a like measure of torment and mourning,
since in her heart she says,
‘I sit as a queen,
I am no widow,
and mourning I shall never see.’
For this reason her plagues will come in a single day,
death and mourning and famine,
and she will be burned up with fire;
for mighty is the Lord God who has judged her.”
And the kings of the earth, who committed sexual immorality and lived in luxury with her, will weep and wail over her when they see the smoke of her burning. They will stand far off, in fear of her torment, and say,
“Alas! Alas! You great city,
you mighty city, Babylon!
For in a single hour your judgment has come.”
State of The Union
In President Trump’s State of the Union Address, February 5, 2019, he said:
“We must keep America first in our hearts. We must keep freedom alive in our souls. And we must always keep faith in America's destiny -- that one Nation, under God, must be the hope and the promise and the light and the glory among all the nations of the world!”
Basically, in these few words, he raised America to God-status, i.e. as the Savior, the hope, the promise, the light and the glory among the nations of the world, i.e. equal with or in place of Jesus Christ, i.e. as the antichrist. Or, it wasn’t America he was raising to God-status, but that there is to be one Nation, under (a) god (Satan), which is antichrist, which is in our destiny.
He also spoke much of a change which is coming to America, which is a change of standard (norm), i.e. out with the old, in with the new. The main thing he was pushing here, which his predecessor also pushed all throughout his two terms as president, is this idea that we must all reject what separates us as the people of the world, and that we must all come together in unity and embrace cooperation, and compromise and the common good.
He also spoke of a new agreement among the nations of Mexico, Canada and the USA, and of how much this USMCA is for the benefit of our nation. He gave the impression that he was against government coercion, domination and control. And, he tried, as well, to assure the people of America that we will always be free, and that we will never be a socialist country.
Am Always Ruler
I did a lot of research on this USMCA, and it led me to something called Agenda 21, which is part of this USMCA. From what I understand, and from what the Lord has been showing me these past 12 years, this agreement is more like a constitution, which is the new law of the land, basically. We have united or we are about to be united with these other two nations as one region of many in the New World Order (of the beast of Revelation).
The blueprint for how this is all supposed to work is within the pages of this USMCA agreement, evidently. And, it will mean loss of freedoms for us, and it will mean government coercion, domination and control, and it will indeed mean coming underneath the rule of a socialist New World Order.
So, as I was looking at why Trump might imply, potentially, that America had this God-like status, and as I was also researching this USMCA, I thought to dissect the name “America,” to see if there was anything there. And, that led me to the name “Erica” which is the feminine of Eric, which means “ever, always ruler.” So, in that case, “America” would be “Am always (ever) ruler,” i.e. “Am Erica.” For, she is full of pride and of self-importance. And, she does see herself as superior to the rest of the world.
And, then the Lord brought to mind that verse in Revelation 18 about Babylon saying,
‘I sit as a queen,
I am no widow,
and mourning I shall never see.’
But, from what we read in this passage in Revelation 18, we see that she will not always rule as queen, for God will bring her down, which is what I believe is happening with this USMCA agreement of the New World Order.
Where it Began
Although I believe that America was created for the very purpose to bring about this rule of the beast (see our national seal), and so it was inevitable that this would take place, the Lord is showing me here some factors which have contributed to why it is taking place, and why now (or soon) it is to be.
Back in the early 1950s, I believe it was, the church at large within the USA was convinced to partner with the US government via the 501c3 not-for-profit tax exempt status for churches. But, the church didn’t have to unite with the government, because she was already tax exempt in the USA, which it states at the IRS website. Yet, perhaps, not everyone got on board with this immediately, but over time the majority have.
So, what the church did, by becoming unequally yoked together with the US government, was to forfeit her independence, i.e. her separateness from the world. She gave it up in order to get “in bed” with the government, because she thought this would benefit her in some way. But, essentially, she sold her soul to the devil, mostly unknowingly. But, many of her leaders did so with eyes wide open, because they are/were wolves in sheep’s clothing.
Come Out! Be Separate!
Yet, the scriptures teach that we are not to be unequally yoked together with unbelievers, for there is not partnership (no fellowship) between light and darkness, i.e. between righteousness and lawlessness. There is no agreement between the temple of God and idols. So, we are to come out from their midst and be separate, just like it says here in Rev. 18. And, we are to touch no unclean thing. And, then God will welcome us (2 Co. 6).
For, when the church united with the government, she united, too, with the world and with big business. And the church, which is Christ’s body, with him only as her head, now had two heads, and the new head superseded the true head (i.e. it supplanted Jesus). And, now the church was being run by business men who were following marketing books in place of the Holy Spirit, and in place of scripture. And, this sent the church into a massive moral and spiritual decline.
For, little by little, the church accepted more and more of the world’s philosophies, values, attitudes, goals, objectives and behaviors. And, before long the church was no longer distinctly different from the world, for she had become one with the world in thinking, believing and in behaving. And, so she mostly lost her witness in the world, and her light mostly went out, and now a new church (of Satan) is emerging to be the Savior, the light, the hope and the glory of the world.
For, not only did Christ’s body surrender herself to the governance of the world and of this ungodly government, which is of Satan, but she made many compromises with the world with regard to the gospel of our salvation. And, for the most part, the church has now embraced a diluted cheap grace substitute for the true gospel which is free from repentance, obedience and submission to Jesus Christ as her ONLY LORD AND SAVIOR.
And, now, rather than serving Jesus Christ, and being led by the Holy Spirit, she is market-driven and flesh-driven, and she lives to please the world, her customer base, instead. So, rather than teaching the true gospel, she serves up whatever the world is clamoring for. And, so the gospel has been sacrificed for the sake of this unity with the world.
And, now what is being taught is that anyone can say some words after someone and then be congratulated that they are now part of God’s family and that heaven is guaranteed them, but that they don’t have to turn from their sins, or obey Christ, or submit to his Lordship over their lives.
So, God is allowing our nation now to come under this rule of the beast, i.e. this New World (totalitarian) Order, in order to discipline his church, and in order to turn hearts back to him in true repentance before our Lord returns.
