"There is one major problem with the USA being Babylon, when in the US history has it been guilty of shedding the blood of the Prophets and Saints? " (Rev.18:24 and Rev.19:2). It hasn't and nor is it likely to be. That is a major reason the Lord utterly destroys it."
Let's look at the crux of this often asked question:
".......when in the US History has it been guilty.......?"
guilty of verse 18:24:
Revelation 18:24 And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.
The answer is provided in the previous verse:
......for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.
Sorcery - Witchcraft or enchantment. Webster's definition of enchantment: That which captivates the heart and senses; an influence or power which fascinates or highly delights.
Immediately this brings to mind TV and Movies of which we are by far the biggest influence and exporter in the world for over 60 years. Our wicked, ungodly lifestyle has been exported all over the world and influenced the nations and peoples of the world to "commit fornication" with us and take part in our wickedness. Sorcery, as I understand it in the Greek, means drug taking and we have influenced the world (TV, Movies) that drugs (legal and illegal) are good and even fun.
Rev 18:3 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her........
And again, Revelation 19:2:
For true and righteous are his judgments: for he hath judged the great whore, which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and hath avenged the blood of his servants at her hand.
......which did corrupt the earth.......
God is laying the blame squarely on Mystery Babylon for deceving and corrupting the whole earth. He is not saying that Mystery Babylon directly killed all the prophets and saints BUT she INFLUENCED and CAUSED them to be killed all over the earth.
Only the USA could qualify for ALL the scriptures written about Mystery Babylon.
Also, think about it. With the short time (months, a few years) left for ALL the scriptures in Revelation 18, 19, Jeremiah 50, 51, Isaiah 47 to be fulfilled, is it REMOTELY possible that Babylon, Iraq could be built and become the great city and nation described in these books? It's taken New York City over 200 years to achieve its lofty status in the world. TV news showed the world Babylon, Iraq when the 4th Infantry Division was there after Gulf War 2 started. It is a crude, rough structure that looked bare of electricity, utilities or any great buildings at all. It also looked devoid of permanent inhabitants. I believe satan had Hussien build there as a deception. Personal pride built it. And lastly, 50,000,000 babies have been murdered in this nation. That's 50,000,000 SAINTS. How many nations abort their babies because of our influence? Only the Lord knows the answer to this question.
