Revelation predicts Nuclear Attack in NYC

    It seems like a bible prophecy written almost 2000 years ago is now coming together.

    I believe in the next 5 years, and more likely before Obama's term ends, we will witness NYC, if not more cities, being suddenly hit the by a nuclear bomb, similar to 9/11.


    "Come, I will show you the punishment of the great prostitute, who sits by many waters." Revelation 17:1
    Referring to the Statue of Liberty, the great prostitute.
    "She held a golden cup in her hand" Revelation 17:4

    So now I believe it is obvious that Great Mystery is NYC.


    "The beast and the ten horns you saw will hate the prostitute. They will bring her to ruin and leave her naked; they will eat her flesh and burn her with fire." - Revelation 17:16 Referring to a Nuclear Bomb

    "For God has put it into their hearts to accomplish his purpose by agreeing to hand over to the beast their royal authority, until God’s words are fulfilled." - Revelation 17:17
    Meaning god has put it in hearts and wills of the beast to destroy the United States/NYC, also meaning it will not a supernatural burning, but a burning caused by man, in which the will was from god

    "The woman you saw is the great city that rules over the kings of the earth" - Revelation 17:18 The most powerful city is New York City.

    "She has become a dwelling for demons
    and a haunt for every impure spirit,
    a haunt for every unclean bird,
    a haunt for every unclean and detestable animal."
    - Revelation 18:2
    To me the "dwelling for demons" sounds like the Fallout of Nuclear attack

    "Therefore in one day her plagues will overtake her:
    death, mourning and famine.
    She will be consumed by fire,
    for mighty is the Lord God who judges her." - Revelation 18:8
    Who else could any enter city or nation be consumed by fire in one day other than a nuclear attack

    "When the kings of the earth who committed adultery with her and shared her luxury see the smoke of her burning, they will weep and mourn over her. Terrified at her torment, they will stand far off and cry:" - Revelation 18:9 Seeing smoke or her burning from all other areas of the earth again sounds like a Nuclear Bomb



    What you do you all think ?

    Mystery Babylon is clearly is physical place, that "sits on many waters"
    It is the "Great Whore" of the world. Sounds like USA/NYC
    It will be utterly burned in one day. What else could burn a city/nation in one day other than a nuclear bomb.

    I don't know who it refers to but I am pretty sure it doesnt mean the Statue of Liberty or NYC. There might be a nuke there someday but I don't think it has anything to do with this verse.

    excerpt from an article
    The image of the great prostitute sitting on many waters immediately indicates for us what the great prostitute represents. The harlot/prostitute image is used of wicked cities by the Old Testament prophets. Ninevah (Nahum 3:4), Tyre (Isaiah 23:16-17), and Jerusalem (Ezekiel 16:15) are a few cities that are called harlots because of their great immoralities. This great harlot in Revelation 17:1 is described as “sitting on many waters.” Verse 15 tells us what this image means. “The waters that you saw, where the prostitute is seated, are peoples and multitudes and nations and languages.” The great harlot is the city that is ruling over the peoples, multitudes, nations, and languages of the earth

    I am sure that someone currently studying Revelations and Daniel could explain this. I used to study this alot but not lately

    Why couldn't it be London in that sense though. The Statue doesn't hold a cup, she holds a torch. England is the one with "Royal authority" and is still led by the Vatican(beast) and really is more likely to turn against it in the future and incur wrath. And along with that, most countries and territories in the world, if they aren't occupied in some way by England along with the U.S. they were founded by England. Not to mention England in surrounded by water also.

    Thats a decent point. Could be London.

    I find NYC to be more "Universal"

    Seems more accurate to be the great whore of the world. And it says many nations committed adultery with her and drank of her wine which to me suggests trade. NYC is the Economic capital of the world.

    Also Obama said openly he'd be more concerned with the prospect of a Nuke in NYC.

    Well I gotta admit that NYC is more likely to be that. I'm a relocated New Yorker for a reason lol. I think more people have a bone to pick with the U.S. though historically more nations have committed adultery and shared in luxury with England than the U.S. I don't think we share much of our Luxuries.

    I would recommend reading Revelation 17/18 and come to your own conclusion.

    Also in terms of the torch not cup thing, remember John saw this all in a vision, and a cup would have pretty close to a torch.
    Also when you think of a lady holding a cup/torch that represents a city, seems like NYC is the most likely option.

    Yep. And seems like the modern replica of the original Babylon.

    Why would you believe this event would occur within the next five years?

    I think the 'great harlot' just might be the United Nations. Not too good for NYC either, however. Hope I am wrong.

    I believe it is somewhere in the Middle east actually.And I believe it has to be a country that is spiritual which honestly America just is not. Israel will be the center of attention, the nations will find her to be a burden, separate land for the sake of peace and make war against her. The books of the prophets speak about middle eastern nations in the end times. This documentary explains it better than I can.

    We Americans tend to think the world revolves around us and forget that we are a young fairly new nation. I think the prophecies all center around Israel and the middle east, not around America. Would not surprise me to see us disabled by an EMP etc before the real end time events start.

    I would not doubt it. Terrible things are to come that is for sure. We gotta be vigilant.

    I agree Mary7. I think we will matter very little especially if we abandon Israel which is the way things are going these days.:( As long as we support Israel we may be relavent, but when that protection is removed, and removed permanently then all bets are off for us. I think the US and Israel are linked in God's eyes in a very special way and when that bond is broken we are on our own. Pride is a deadly disease.

    Virtually any city in the world could be be targetted for nuclear attack even if the attacker didn't possess inter-continental ballistic missiles.
    Method 1- a nuclear bomb could be deposited on the seabed by a submarine or an innocent-looking merchant ship a mile or two offshore of any coastal city on a time fuse. The resulting blast, tsunami and radiation would then swamp the city.

    Method 2- A terror squad carrying a number of suitcase nukes could sneak ashore at night in rubber boats from a surfaced submarine or merchant ship, making their way inland on buses to deposit them on time fuses in major cities from the coast to a thousand miles or more inland.

    What cities do you think are most vulnerable? (I shudder to think)

    Cities on the coast of any nation in the world would be the most vulnerable to a nuke bomb deposited on the seabed a mile or two offshore, but NO city anywhere would be safe if terrorists came ashore with suitcase nukes and hopped on buses to plant them in cities a thousand miles from the coast.
    It's not a new idea, the nazis were landing sabotage and spying squads from U-boats in WW2-
    WIKI- "On June 12, 1942, the U-boat U-202 landed Dasch's team with explosives and plans at East Hampton, Long Island, New York.Their mission was to destroy power plants at Niagara Falls and three Aluminum Company of America factories in Illinois, Tennessee and New York.
    In 1944 there was another attempt at infiltration..Their mission objective was to gather intelligence on the Manhattan Project and attempt sabotage if possible. They sailed from Kiel on U-1230 and landed at Hancock Point, Maine on November 30, 1944"

    By sheer coincidence I just saw this news report today about a "nuclear torpedo" which can be fired at our coastlines by a submarine many miles away (modern torpedoes have a range of 30 miles or more).
    That'd be less hazardous for a sub than having to sneak close in to deposit a nuke on the seabed, because it wouldn't have to penetrate coastguard and navy anti-submarine patrols.
    [​IMG]

    Incidentally other countries have subs besides Russia, for example this is one of Iran's Kilo-class subs-
    [​IMG]


    And this is Kim Jong-un in one of his North Korean subs, sending out the propaganda message that he could sneak up on our coastlines any time he wanted-
