People keep asking “Where is the USA in prophecy?” They reason that the most powerful nation in the world should have a place in biblical prophecy.
I would argue that the end of the end times is not quite here just yet. The United States will be a part of one of the world’s ten regional powers, which will rise just shortly before the Tribulation period. Those ten nations will encompass the whole world, not just Europe. The idea that the ten nations are all from Europe is in error.
The Club of Rome, in 1973, issued its plan to divide the world up into ten regions, before joining them into a one-world government. We can see those regions taking shape in the news, with talk of NAFTA, the EU, the African Union, the Asian Union, & etc.
The USA is falling behind. The last two major weapon systems of the US military are plagued with problems. The F-22 raptor poses a danger to its pilots, and the planned production run of around 700 aircraft was cut short to less than 200. The F-35 program is now the most expensive defense program in world history, has been plagued with cost overruns, and they still don’t have an operational fighter.
In the mean time the Russians have developed the T50/PAK-FA in conjunction with India.
Now China has produced its own stealth fighter, the J-20, and US intelligence experts are now saying it is 2 years ahead of schedule! This is not to mention the other secret projects that these countries are not talking about.
As a pilot, of course, I am primarily interested in developments in aviation, but these countries are also moving ahead with other projects, while the US seems deadlocked, too busy worrying about political correctness, entitlement programs, and gay marriage.
According to a pentagon report, China now has three nuclear powered submarines, which greatly expand its capabilities. (see page 22 of the report)
Could it be that, by the time the Tribulation and Armageddon occur, the USA will be a secondary power, swallowed up in a North American Union, and ultimately only a small part of the World Government? I think so. I think this is exactly what the bible is teaching.
The bible does teach that the chaos of Armageddon will spread to the whole world, but the center of the action will be Israel, not the United States.
For, lo, I begin to bring evil on the city which is called by my name, and should ye be utterly unpunished? Ye shall not be unpunished: for I will call for a sword upon all the inhabitants of the earth, saith the LORD of hosts. Jeremiah 25:29
