The Prophetic Future of the United States

The USA in Bible Prophecy

What will the ultimate destiny of the United States be according to the Bible? Can we know for certain?

In Daniel 7, there are four beasts portrayed a lion with eagle’s wings, a bear, a leopard and a ten-horned beast. These beasts are symbols for nations. It can be shown conclusively that the eagle’s wings represent the United States. (See Understanding the Endtime)

In Revelation 13:1-3, one beast is depicted, but this single beast has the body of the leopard, the feet of the bear, the mouth of the lion, and the ten horns of the ten-horned beast. It is obvious that all the nations represented in Daniel 7 are included in this composite, endtime, world government beast-except the eagle.

Why are the eagle’s wings representing the United States left out of the prophecy depicting the world government of the Antichrist?

There are several possibilities. Perhaps America’s dominance is destroyed in a war with China over Taiwan. Or could it be that the U.S. is represented under the lion out of which she originally came. Or maybe the United States will withdraw from participation in world government, with the center of global power swinging to the countries of Europe.

 

There is reason to believe that the United States may not be fully cooperative with the New World Order of the endtime. Just four verses before we read about Revelation 13’s New World Order, we see a depiction of the nation of Israel being protected from the Antichrist. The setting for this passage is the time of the Great Tribulation. Revelation 12:14 shows a woman, Israel, being given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness for three and one-half years where she is protected from Satan. Could these eagle’s wings possibly be the United States? The U.S. has certainly been Israel’s protector in these times.

 

If Revelation 12:14 does refer to the United States, then we are going to be standing with Israel and resisting the Antichrist and his New World Order at the time of the Great Tribulation.

Will the United States vanish from its position of world dominance between now and the time of the end?

Do the eagle’s wings split off from the world government and stand in opposition to it in support of Israel? We can’t say conclusively from scripture exactly what path the U.S. ultimately takes.

 

There is no doubt that the eagle’s wings in Daniel 7 is the U.S. Can we say the same of the eagle’s wings of Revelation 12:14? No. This scripture is not clear.

 

There does seem to be reason to believe that the United States may stand with Israel. If this is true, it may also be possible that the U.S. will serve as a center for world evangelism and a harbor of safety from the coming storm.

 

Since America’s future is not explicitly defined in scripture, we have to believe that the course we take could be altered through the power of prayer.

 

Perhaps the motto of America will continue to be “In God We Trust!”

      Hello Phil,

      Yes, according to scripture the “Rapture” will not happen until the Second Coming of the Lord. But, before that happens, Jesus told us to look for the Abomination of Desolation as spoken of by the Prophet Daniel. Matthew 24:15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)16 Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:17 Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house:18 Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes.19 And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!20 But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day:21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.

      Notice Jesus says that this revealing of the Antichrist would start the Great Tribulation. Now look at what Jesus says next;
      Matthew 24:29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

      Immediately after the Tribulation, He is returning and sending His angels to gather His elect!

      Paul tells us in 2 Thessalonians that our gathering unto Jesus will not happen until the “man of sin” is revealed, this is the same event that Jesus spoke of the Abomination of Desolation. 2 Thessalonians 2:1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

  1. What about the Eagle that defends Israel when the anti christ rises and attacks it? I was under the impression the Eagle represented the USA who sides with Israel even now

  2. Collin

    I was wondering where America was in The book of Revelation seeing as it is a prophecy of the future, I figured we would be in it.

    I did a little searching and I also came up with us being eagle. After I figured that out I read about the woman with the wings of a great eagle. And my mind has been set on that ever since.

    I think that America is actually going to be the protector of Israel.

  3. No. Its because the LION has Eagle wings.. and the eagle becomes swallowed up. Please note the only way this is possible is if an Englishman AND and American sot a throne simultaneously… the only one who can threaten us all is Harry Windsors son, born both American AND English…. but speculation…. watch… 35 years from now he will bridge the throne AND our democracy towards the demands of England setting us back centuries.

      I believe that your question about the eagle woman, is Revelation 12:14 And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.
      (The Woman is Israel, the Eagle’s Wings, we believe represent the United States of America, helping to take care of Israel). Can you give me the scripture references for your second question?

  4. The only reference Revelation 18 gives on the United States is rested upon Revelation 18 v 1-3.
    1 And after all these things i saw another angel come down from Heaven, having great power; and the Earth was lightened with his glory.
    2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying; Babylon the great has fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devil’s, and every foul spirit, and the cage of every unclean and hateful bird.
    3 For all Nations have drunk the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the Kings of the Earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the Earth are waxed rich through the abundant of her delicacies.
    First of all, let’s reflect on the fact that Iraq cycled some of the most vicious regimes into the world, and committed some of the most horrible atrocities to mankind. Most notable is the gassing of the Kurds in northern Iraq by Saddam Hussein’s regime. Don’t forget how he gained the riches in his palace, the fornication and murder by Babylon.
    For all Nations DRUNK the wine of the wrath of her fornication. Most of all Nations were there all through the 90s and 2000s. All had dealing with Iraq which was back in the times of Abraham, all the way through Moses and all of the old testament prophets til………. You will have to forgive me. I cannot recall the era Babylon became Iraq….. BABYLON!!!!!
    3 And the Kings of the Earth have committed fornication with her.
    All those governments had dealings going on with Saddam Hussein’s regime during the four illegal wars that sacrificed a lot of the lives of we the people and the lower class. Including the Democrat and Republican political parties of the United States had fornicated with whore of Babylon.
    And the merchants of the Earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.
    Oil tycoon’s profited heavily in the war in Iraq while innocent people died.
    Weapons industries: Glock, H&K, Colt, Lockheed Martin, Huey Bell, and many others profited of the blood that is the wine of wrath of Babylons fornication.
    Then later in the 2000s a construction firm coincidentally owned by voice president Dick Cheney…….. Haliburton gets to go in and milk the innocent of a illegal war while at the time Bush family and all governments involved were in bed with Saddam until it was time to cut out the middle man himself……. Saddam…… Of their money to rebuild their nation.
    Hence merchants of the Earth are waxed rich.
    That is plain as day. That is not hard to line up the current events of the last 20 years to the book of Revelations.
    This message was given to me by the Holy Spirit to submit here.
    Peace, love, grace of God through our mighty Immanuel. King of Kings, Lord of lords, savior of our souls be with you all always

  6. REBUTTAL of “The Prophetic Future of the United States” that America helps the woman Israel in the last days.

    The eagle’s wings in Daniel 7:4 is a reference to America √.

    DANIEL 7:3-4 (NKJV) [WITH INTERPRETATION]:
    And four great beasts came up from the sea, each different from the other. The first was like a lion, and had EAGLE’S WINGS. I watched till its wings were plucked off; and it was lifted up
    from the earth and made to stand on two feet like a man, and a man’s heart was given to it.

    The wings of a great eagle in Revelation 12:14 is NOT a reference to America…

    REVELATION 12:13-14 (NKJV) [WITH INTERPRETATION]:
    Now when the dragon saw that he had been cast to the earth, he persecuted the woman
    [ISRAEL] who gave birth to the male Child. But the woman [ISRAEL] was given TWO WINGS OF A GREAT EAGLE, that she might fly into the [ISRAELI] wilderness to her place, where she is
    nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent.

    God will bear the Jews of Israel on eagle’s wings, as He had done before during their Exodus from Egypt.

    EXODUS 19:3-4 (NKJV):
    “Thus you shall say to the house of Jacob, and tell the children of Israel: ‘You have seen what I did to the Egyptians, and how I bore you on EAGLE’S WINGS and brought you to Myself.”

    ISAIAH 40:31 (NKJV):
    But those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with WINGS LIKE EAGLES, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.

    America will be completely destroyed by Russia (Revelation 18). America will cease from being a nation and no one will dwell in it (Jeremiah 49:18,23, 50:3,40). America will not be able to stand itself, much less be able to protect and defend Israel. It will not be America’s wings that will rescue Israel in its last days before they call on Yeshua (Jesus), it will be a deliverance of God.

    • Doug Norvell

      Revelation 18 is not America, it is the Roman Catholic Church/Rome. It is a continuation of Revelation 17, which gives us many clues, she is arrayed in Purple and Scarlet. (Bishops wear purple, Cardinals wear scarlet) She has a golden cup in her hand (the Pope drinks from a golden cup) she is drunken with the blood of the saints (Rome and the RCC has killed many saints throughout her time) and she sits on 7 hills, (Rome is known as the City of 7 hills). Not to mention she is riding on the back of the One World Government Beast from chapter 13. We also know that there will be a False Prophet that will rise up at the same time as the Antichrist, he will be the most recognizable religious figure in the world (the Pope). This false prophet will be the one that forces the Mark of the Beast (that no one can buy or sell without). But the way we can know Revelation 17 & 18 are talking about the same place is Revelation 18:23 And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee(Revelation 1:20 says candles represent churches,Rev.1:20 the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches.) ; and the voice of the bridegroom (Jesus is the Bridegroom John 3;28-30 and Matthew 9:13-14) and of the bride (The Church is the Bride, Eph.5:25-27) shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.24 And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.

      America fits none of these…

  7. Darnell

    The eagles wings will be plucked off by the Bear. America the Great enslaved God’s chosen people. The blacks are the real Jews. Once the country is destoyed there will be a massive 2nd exodus. Much greater than the first out of Egypt. So no. The Eagle will not be apart of the endtime vision. She’ll be history. When the Messiah does return, the Isrealites will already be back home as the scripture says

  8. Jan D Smith

    A lot has been revealed. It would appear to me that Israel is ushering in the last days. Chosen may mean a lot of different things. What exactly, was Israel actually chosen to do? They showed by clear, cogent and convincing evidence that legalism doesn’t work. They showed what greed and power can do to nation(s). Of course the USA is going to support Israel. They have power over our finances, media, Hollywood and values. The oligarchs are destroying the world. They have their own government within goverments, global thrusts, hidden agenda and reverse discrimination. I am NOT a card carrying member of any subversive group. Everything I am saying I have personally researched. I already know you won’t publish this. They are not a holy group at this point but a fulfillment of scripture.

  9. Jeff Allen

    If God does rapture. I know it seems like America has lost it’s way but there are still millions of Christians here that would go. This could possibly leave America with a population that would not be able to defend itself and then adopted by another country.

  10. In the end the 2nd Beast mentioned in Rev chapter 13 starts out with 2 lamb like horns but starts speaking as a dragon. American symbol of the eagle in the bible is sign of great power and like all the other great powers in the bible that also use the eagle symbol like Egypt and Rome for example. These nations were conquering powers holding the nation of Isreal captive in Egypt and taking her captive many times by all the other powers. Deut. 28 gives warnings for disobedience, there you find 2 eagles listed. I believe the first eagle in that chapter is Rome as it destroyed Carthage. The 2nd America because it took those people into slavery from Africa. I am white but do see what has happened to the children of Israel because of their disobedience. The people are waking up now to see who they are according to the curses found in the bible. And this also means our saviour is not white either since he came from the remnant of those people who were still obedient. Rev 3:9 tells us those who say they are Jews are not.

  11. Brett Heckendorn

    In Exodus chapter 19:4 it also talks about Israel being carried on eagles wings,but obviously the Bible wasn’t talking about America.Can you tell me how we can know that Revalation 13 is talking about America?Thank you

    • Doug Norvell

      Hello Brett,

      All of the beast from Daniel 7 are present in the One World Beast in Revelation 13, except the two wings of a great eagle. The wings are shown in Revelation 12. So since the same beast in Daniel are shown to be in the One World Government, we believe the same Eagle’s wings from Daniel 7, that came out of the Lion are the ones helping Israel in Revelation 12:14.
