Ancient Bible Prophecy Refers to The Destruction Of
the United States
By James Donahue
There is a story in the Old Testament about Nebuchadnezzar, king of the ancient
empire of Babylon, who had a disturbing dream and asked the prophet Daniel to interpret it.
In the dream, the king
saw a great image, apparently of a man, which had a head "of fine gold, its breast and its arms of silver, its belly and its
thighs of bronze, its legs of iron, its feet part of iron and part of clay."
Nebuchadnezzar said that in his dream,
he saw a stone miraculously cut away "without hands" and that the stone "smote the image upon its feet that were of iron and
clay, and broke them to pieces." As the feet crumbled, the entire image toppled and smashed into pieces. Then the stone that
smote the image "became a great mountain and filled the whole earth."
Daniel's interpretation became a prophetic warning
of events that some scholars say have all occurred. He said the head of gold represented the great Babylonian Empire, which
would be followed by the Medo-Persian Empire (silver breast and arms), the Greek Empire (bronze parts) and lastly the Roman
Empire (iron legs).
But Daniel, who was a powerful psychic with the ability to see future events with clarity, may
either have missed the significance of the mixed iron and clay in the feet of this image, or he failed to look far enough
into the future to see the second phase of this prophetic dream.
Both Daniel and the writer of the Book of Revelation
referred to images of a beast with ten horns rising up in the last days:
(Dan 7:7 After this I saw in the night visions,
and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and broke
in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it [was] diverse from all the beasts that [were] before it; and
it had ten horns.)
(Rev 17:3 So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a
scarlet colored beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.)
The Scofield Reference Bible states the views
of most Bible scholars, that these images of a beast with ten horns is a glimpse of a rebirth of the old Roman Empire
during a period that is at the end of the Gentile world domination. The beast, or dragon, is a cluster of nations under the
control of a single world leader. Could the dream image of a stone that breaks the feet of iron and clay be another representation
of this world dictator who becomes "a great mountain" and fills the whole earth?
There is a relevant historical story
of how the District of Columbia was founded as the site of our national government complex. The article we refer to implied
that the Roman Catholic Church was heavily involved in some kind of secret agreement with the Scottish Rites Freemasons. President
George Washington and many of the members of his administration were Freemasons. According to this story, the property that
became the District of Columbia was donated by the church from the State of Maryland. It was plotted under the name "Rome."
In further research, we confirmed that the State of Maryland ceded to Congress
a piece of property ten miles square in 1788. The following year the State of Virginia ceded another ten square acres, but
the Maryland site was the one chosen by Washington in 1791. Private landowners involved in the transaction were not named.
The report said they were paid 25 pounds per acre for the land.
Richard Hoagland, in a story posted on his web site,
went to great lengths to prove the strange symbolism behind the choosing of the date 9-11 for the attack on America. He notes
that Masonic symbols are to be found all over the property. According to Hoagland, the architect for the capitol building,
Pierre Charles L’Enfante, was a French Freemason who belonged to the Order of Scottish Rite.
Whether there is
truth behind the story that our capitol was erected on property named "Rome" is probably not that significant. The fact remains
that the United States, which some claim to be the last standing world superpower, appears to fill all of the criteria for
being the last great Babylon; the beast that both Daniel and the author of the Book of Revelation saw rising out of the sea
at the end of days.
While Christians for years have cited the European Union as proof of the Revived Roman Empire,
they overlooked the possibility that America has been the culprit all along.
Understanding that the Book of Revelation was
written long after the Babylonian Empire was history, read the 18th chapter, starting with verse eight. As you read, think
of the wealth of America, best represented by the World Trade Center in the heart of the great City of New York.
eight and nine warns that "her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine, and she shall be utterly burned with
fire. . . and the kings of the earth who have committed fornication and lived luxuriously with her, shall bewail her, and
lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning. Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, alas,
alas, that great city, Babylon, that mighty city! For in one hour is thy judgment come."
Verse 19 continues on to say
that "they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, alas, alas, that great city, in which were made
rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! For in one hour is she made desolate."
We all have
vivid images of people caught in the thick dust from the collapse of those twin towers. That the towers represented the center
of world trade and business is clearly reflected in this prophetic message. Because of satellite television imagery, people
all over the world watched those towers burn and collapse. They watched from afar off. Within a single hour everything was
Now lets go back to the last part of Daniel's prophetic message to King Nebuchadnezzar concerning his dream
about the feet of mixed iron and clay.
Daniel said in Chapter 2:42-43: "And as the toes of the feet were part of iron
and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong and partly broken. And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay,
they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men; but they shall not adhere one to another, even as iron is not mixed with
We suggest that Daniel
was seeing the destruction of America when he used his psychic powers to tap into human events stored in the collective unconsciousness.
He got it mixed with the fall of the old Roman Empire and did not perceive that the feet of the image represented a fifth
and final empire that would rise up in the end times.
We are clearly a nation divided. This government is weakened
by greed, by big business more interested in profits than the common good of all, and by a rising number of racial, religious
and other special interest groups driven by a desire to force the masses to live in a world of their creation, or in the failure
of that, to let it all crumble to ruin.
