Is America In Bible Prophecy?

We start today’s broadcast with a Facebook question from Sean, who asks, “Hank is America mentioned in the Bible?”

 

The answer is, of course, no, America is not mentioned in the Bible, only prophecy pundits with a Bible in one hand and a newspaper in the other find the U.S. in biblical prophecy.

 

Mike Evans is a classic case in point. In his book American Prophecies, he suggests that we might see America in Isaiah 18. Why? Because it’s a reference to a land divided by rivers; but if you read the context, “Cush” is not the U.S. in context, it is clearly ancient Ethiopia, and the river reference is to the Nile. He also says that if you look at Revelation 17 and 18, we could identify America with mystery Babylon the Great Mother of Harlots. But again, as I note in the Apocalypse Code, only one nation in biblical history is inextricably linked to the moniker “harlot,” and that nation is Israel.

 

Then we have, of course, a lot of dispensationalists critiquing other dispensationalists. For example, Hal Lindsey acknowledges that America is not in Bible prophecy, so he resists those prophecy pundits who say it is, but then he says the fact that America is not in the Bible must mean that America will not be a significant player in the future. In other words, we will have lost all of our province and power.

 

Well, all of that is rank speculation because America, bottom line, is not in the Scriptures.
