It’s No Mystery, the USA Isn’t Mystery Babylon

In recent decades, it has been a common thing in Christian circles to identify the United States of America as the MYSTERY, BABYLON mentioned in Revelation 17. The concept of the USA being the Mother of Harlots and Abominations may have been first introduced into Protestant churches by the late pastor of Chicago’s Moody Memorial Church, S. Franklin Logsdon, in the late 1960s. I haven’t done extensive research on this, but I’m guessing the Roman Catholic Church came up with the idea of calling the USA Mystery Babylon to counteract centuries of their own church being called Mystery Babylon by their critics.

If you do some research you will find that many Christians have come up with all kinds of different Bible prophecy interpretations to make the U.S. fit the title. Some have pointed out America’s superpower status and its prevalent spread of immorality worldwide. Others have pointed out how the U.S. is the biggest hub for commerce, like Mystery Babylon in the Bible. There are also some who leave open the possibility it may refer to America, but since the symbolic harlot is called Mystery Babylon, it “means that we cannot be completely certain as to her identity.

Nevertheless, we definitely have a more sure word of prophecy in the Bible. Although the harlot is called Mystery Babylon and the apostle John exhibited wonder by marveling at her as to who she could be, an angel approached John in Revelation 17:7 to say,

…Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns.

In other words, Mystery Babylon would no longer be a mystery to John or to those who study Revelation by the Holy Spirit. By revealing the mystery, the angel shares the following characteristics to let us know the harlot in scarlet cannot be the USA:

v. 9 And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.

v. 18 And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.

These two traits help us unlock the other traits about the harlot in scarlet that John saw in his vision. Mystery Babylon is a city, not a nation. Additionally, she is a city that in John’s time was great and ruled over the kings of the earth. Also, she is a city that sits on seven mountains. There’s only one city at that time that fit this description–Rome and only Rome.

The Roman Catholic Church has bent over backwards to deny they are Mystery Babylon by making such claims as they aren’t the hub of world commerce and that Rome wasn’t Christian at that time, nor did the Catholic Church or Vatican City exist. So it couldn’t possibly be them. But students of history can easily debunk their claim if they understand the Roman Catholic Church (RCC) was started by the Roman Empire to transform it into something that outwardly appeared to be the Christian religion, thanks to Emperor Constantine I’s trickery. This insured the Empire would continue in a different form even when it’s former version ended in what appeared to be the fall of an empire.

In its new form, the new Holy Roman Empire (a.k.a., RCC) continued its tradition of murdering genuine Christians. She has truly been “drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martys of Jesus,” (Revelation 17:6). Historian William Edward Hartpole Lecky was one of many who took note of this in volume 2 of his 1865 treatise entitled History of the Rise and Influence of the Spirit of Rationalism in Europe. It is there he stated, “That the Church of Rome has shed more innocent blood than any other institution that has ever existed among mankind, will be questioned by no Protestant who has a competent knowledge of history.” Foxe’s Book of Martyrs also contains accounts of Papist officials who hunted down devout Christians for torturing and massacres. Persecuting Christians is one of the RCC’s favorite pastimes.

Even by proxy, they have caused the deaths of millions upon millions of saints. The RCC trained Karl Marx as a Jesuit, then helped steer his Communist Manifesto, which led to unmerciful bloodletting of Christians by atheist Marxists who were the RCC’s pawns. Adolph Hitler was also trained by RCC Jesuits and they eventually orchestrated his path to power stained with the blood of Jews and Christians. Then the RCC set up the “ratlines” to help National Socialists escape to the Americas when the Allies defeated them in Germany.

The late ex-RCC priest Alberto Rivera also told the world in his Chick Publications graphic novel, The Prophet, how he researched the Vatican archives to discover that they recorded the account of why and how the RCC recruited the Prophet Mohammed to start their new religion Islam in order to get Arabs into the RCC fold. Of course, we all know how their “religion of peace” was spread and what they do to Christians today. Catholic Catechism 841 teaches the acceptance of Muslims as part of the RCC’s spiritual family and verifies Rivera’s account along with the close ties the Vatican has had with many Muslim leaders throughout history. We have the RCC to thank for all their bloodshed.

The USA by comparison hasn’t been drunk yet on the blood of saints. This is one reason why the RCC hates the U.S. and why they salivate over the prospect of destroying America from within. Accusing the U.S. of being Mystery Babylon is not only a deflection away from their own actions, it’s a tool they hope will bring America and its Constitution-loving citizens into submission to their prospective global government.

When one also studies history to see how broad Rome’s influence has stretched as they work stealthily behind the scenes, it becomes clear “the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies,” (Revelation 18:3). It’s not by accident that many “successful” politicians, business people, social media influencers, and celebrities have some link to the RCC. It’s also interesting to note that many in law enforcement and intelligence agencies are linked to the RCC, a significant number of whom go to confession to reveal classified information that may get distributed throughout the RCC’s vast international spy network, including to the Vatican. If and when religion is interjected into the story lines of movies or TV shows in the West, most of the time it’s Catholicism or witchcraft or both simultaneously. Coincidence? I think not. The U.S. as a nation is hardly innocent with all the evil the nation is responsible for, but they aren’t the harlot of Revelation. They’re just one of many parties who fornicate with her and will most likely be punished for it.

  1. You’re right, “Mystery Babylon” is a mystery and I believe its somewhat prideful to claim, “America is it!”
    I believe it represents the powers undergirding this world system. Those devilish powers permeate into every culture and nation and will rise up to be one world government.
    Well, just my thoughts! Good post brother.
