U.S. in Bible Prophecy

U.S. in Bible Prophecy

As we draw closer to the end of the church age, what role will the U.S. have in Bible prophecy?


Well, you might be surprised to know that the U.S. is not really mentioned in Bible prophecy.


At the beginning of the Tribulation period, the world will be controlled by 10 kings “horns” a.k.a. 10 toes (Daniel 2:42, 7:7). That means in one way or another, the U.S. has to be greatly diminished on the world stage and will no longer be the super power it is today.


God has blessed this nation, created as “one nation under God.” But now the U.S. is changing its character:


  • As recently as 2007, the U.S. ranked as one of the most “religious” countries in the world. Since then, it has shown the largest move away from religion of any country surveyed. (6)


  • Today, the percentage of Americans that identify as Christians is the lowest that it has ever been, and the percentage of Americans that identify as "nones" is at a new all-time high. (2)


  • If the unaffiliated “nones” were a religion, they’d be the largest religious group in the U.S. (7)


  • Meanwhile, anything having to do with the occult (witchcraft, palm and aura readings, astrology, mediating with the other side, etc.) has been increasing 4% per week since March 2020. Wow! (3)


  • Historically during catastrophic events that bring uncertainty, stress, or political chaos, people tend to reconsider their faith, not abandon it. So, this is certainly an alarming character change. (4)


  • Along with the decrease of faith, we see a tremendous increase in crime across American cities. (5)


So, it appears as the faith of our nation grows dim, the role of our nation on the world stage is also diminishing.


But each day that we awake is another day God is patiently waiting for more to repent and believe in Jesus. (2 Peter 3:9).


Luke 10:2 says "the harvest is great but the laborers are few." Let's pray for more laborers to be sent out into the harvest.
