Today we will investigate if the U.S. is mentioned in prophecy and if it is what does the Bible state will happen. We will focus on the changes in our military as a cause of why the U.S. may not be mentioned in the Bible. We will also look at the possibility of COVID-19 being used as war. Should we obey our government at all times, and what should we do to spiritually fight the demonic ideals that are at our door?
Jesus Christ Prophesies
The wars, famines, pestilences, and earthquakes that Jesus Christ spoke about are happening right now and are front-page news (Matthew 24:7).
“7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.”
“2 And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.
3 And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see.
4 And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.
5 And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand.
6 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.
7 And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see.
8 And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.”
In Revelation, Jesus spoke to John about the end of time and the four horsemen that came with the breaking of the first four seals. One who would conquer, peace would be taken, food prices soaring, famine, Death came forth with hell on his heels killing with violence, hunger, with death, and beasts (Revelation 6:2-8). It is interesting and worrisome to note that the fourth horse is called pale and is translated by Strong’s G5515- green or pale same as chloros, khlo-ros from where we get the word chlorine (2). Could the pale-green horse in Revelation symbolizes the use of chemical warfare from a yet unknown origin that will come upon the earth in the last days? There is no way to tell at this point; however, tragically, we do know that khlo-ros/cholrine was used as a weapon in a gas and a bomb form.
“The deliberate use of chlorine gas in war was introduced in France in 1915 by the German Army and was devastating since the troops did not have gas masks. Its use was supplanted later in the war by poison gases that had different modes of action. More recently, chlorine bombs have been used in the Iraq War.” (3)
The use of chlorine gas and bombs was in the 20th century, but one cannot ignore the recent COVID-19 virus was manmade and has caused such medical and economic devastation to the world. At this time, the US Deputy National Security Advisor states that Covid-19 came from a lab in Wuhan,
“US Deputy National Security Advisor Matthew Pottinger has taken a firm stance on the origins of COVID-19, claiming that the disease originated from a biological weapons lab in Wuhan and not from the local wet market, as established by Chinese officials.” (27).
I was surprised that chemical and biological warfare or agents are listed together,
(CBW) or “Chemical/biological warfare is the term used to describe the use of chemical or biological agents as weapons to injure or kill humans, livestock, or plants. Chemical weapons are devices that use chemicals to inflict death or injury; biological weapons use pathogens or organisms that cause disease. Pathogens include bacteria, viruses, fungi, and toxins (poisons produced by animals or plants).” (28).
“The State Department’s former lead investigator who oversaw the Task Force into the COVID-19 virus origin. “The Wuhan Institute of Virology is not the National Institute of Health,” David Asher, now a senior fellow at the Hudson Institute told Fox News in an exclusive interview. “It was operating a secret, classified program. In my view, and I’m just one person, my view is it was a biological weapons program.” (29)
Where is the US in Prophecy
Why is a large country like the USA not mentioned in prophecy? The US was a major player on the world scene during the 20th Century. Could it be that America is taken over by other nations? Will America go to war and lose? Does America incur the judgement of God for her unrighteous idolatrous behavior? Or could it be a combination of all of these things? First, we will look into the possibility of military conflict.
One of the reasons the US may not be in End Time prophecy is that it is involved in a military exchange. There are several key players that could be the launching point of war towards the US. Russia, China, and North Korea have made threats towards America, and it is feasible that it might be one of these countries or there could be a combined attack force that sends some form of weapon that would strike our soil.
“The US does not have the qualification to say that it wants to speak to China from a position of strength. The US uses its military force and financial hegemony to carry out long-arm jurisdiction and suppress other countries.” (1)
Russia is moving closer to China, and the Russian Foreign Minister writes, “Relations between the People’s Republic of China and the Russian Federation are the best ever in the history of our bilateral ties.” (4)
“Beijing and Moscow agreed at the summit to stand firm against Western sanctions and boost ties between their countries to reduce their dependence on the US dollar in international trade and settlements.” (1)
Bible scholar Dr. Chuck Missler thinks, “The apparent absence of the U.S. in Biblical prophecy might be due to a strategic military setback from either a nuclear exchange, an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack, or terrorist attacks. The U.S. might be collateral damage for involving itself in the Magog Invasion; it might be our missiles that fall on Magog and its allies, and we sustain retaliatory strikes in return.” (5)
Next, we will look in Ezekiel at the country of Magog and those who are in the isles. Could America be the isles? Noted founder of Koinonia House explains it as,
“There seems to be a clear depiction of Russia (Magog) and its allies, the Kings of the South (Egypt), the Kings of the East, and, of course, Israel, in the events leading up to Armageddon, etc. But the role of America, a superpower, seems noticeably absent.” (5)
“And I will send a fire on Magog, and among them that dwell carelessly in the isles: and they shall know that I am the LORD.”
Please note that scholars are saying that the isles very may well be England and or the USA. Only time will tell. Koinonia House explains Ezekiel 39:6 by saying,
“This verse has caused much controversy among Biblical scholars over the centuries. The term “send fire” [shaw•lakh aysh] is a Hebrew expression for judgment (cf. Amos 1:12; Hosea 8:14, Ezekiel 21:3). This judgment from Yahweh will be a universal proof of His power. It is seen to be an eternal guarantee of Israel’s deliverance.
“Magog” is the people or country of Gog, which most commentators take to mean Russia. The term “isles” is also translated “coastlines,” implying the “farther reaches of the known world.” Some commentators have taken this to mean the western coastlands of Asia Minor (modern-day Turkey). This doesn’t seem to fit; while some distance from Israel, Turkey is not that far. Other commentators have taken the term to mean the lands of Tarshish [British Isles].
Today, however, a different interpretation is being studied. Many still think of Magog as Russia, and “fire” means a literal fire, possibly a nuclear exchange. The provocative interpretation is for “coastlines” [isles] to be the United States.” (6).
Russia, who is thought to be Magog in Ezekiel 38-39, is involved in rising tensions in Europe.
“The situation in eastern Europe got very much worse today in the ongoing troubles between Russia and Ukraine/US/UK/NATO.
With Russia massing utterly gigantic numbers of troops, tanks, artillery, and armored personnel carriers both in Crimea and on Ukraine’s eastern Border states of Luhansk and Donetsk, an “Emergency Meeting” was called of the Trilateral Contact Group on the Conflict in Donbas.
This is exactly, precisely, how a war may escalate, by USA, UK, and Canada, using other NATO-countries to launch attacks. Those countries will then be defined as parties in the war, and will be attacked by Russia.” (7).
Threat Level Europe Raised
“The U.S. European Command (EUCOM) raised its threat levels in Europe to a “potential imminent crisis” this week as fighting between Russian and Ukrainian forces has escalated in recent days and additional Russian troops are deploying to the region.
EUCOM also raised the warning after Russian troops deployed to the border region between Russia and Ukraine for an apparent set of military drills but failed to leave after the drills concluded on March 23.” (8).
“Three Russian ballistic missile submarines surfaced next to each other from beneath the ice near the North Pole as part of a recent major Arctic exercise. The head of the country’s Navy said that event was a first for his service. It also underscores the growing geopolitical competition in this highly strategic region.” (9).
Feminization, Biden and Prophecy
Looking at where the US may be in Biblical prophecy leads us to what is now happening in the military. First, we will look at excerpts from a podcast featuring Jimmy DeYoung of Prophecy Today who is speaking to Colonel Bob Maginnis where Maginnis states his opinion on why the USA may not be mentioned in end-time prophecy.
Here is a short bio on Col Maginnis,
“Robert L. Maginnis is a retired US Army lieutenant colonel and military commentator on CNN and Fox News. He was part of the Pentagon military analyst program.” (10)
Colonel Maginnis states reasons why the US is not mentioned in prophecy,
“The first thing that Biden did when he walked into the door of the White House was to say we need to have more transgenders, and we need to take non-war experienced women and have them run our combats and commands. It’s all about this leftist agenda and nothing about defending this country.” (11).
“…this government has completely gotten out of reigns and is going in a very bizarre what I would argue as a Marxist direction. Believe it or not, the Democratic party are in the back pocket of the Communist Chinese have a lot of history that people need to appreciate.” (11).
MaGinnis’s remarks should bring alarm to our readers. Putting people in charge of combat situations who have no field experience is like putting the monkeys in charge of the circus. Lowering the level of experience to appease political correctness or quotas puts our soldiers and our country at risk.
Domestic Terrorism and Biblical Views
Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin announced that the Department of Defense “will not tolerate…actions associated with extremist or dissident ideologies” and ordered all 1.4 million personnel to receive “extremism” training.” (12)
In a Newsweek Opinion Piece, Major Aaron Reitz gives several examples of what extremism is and how gender ideation and or sexual orientation agenda are defined in the Military,
“We were instructed that there is a Taliban-like threat in the United States called “domestic terrorism.” These terrorists are characterized in part by “anti-government,” “anti-authority” or “abortion-related” extremism and various “supremacist” ideas.
Acting Secretary of the Navy Thomas Harker announced the objective for the entire Navy Department: nothing short of “eradicating extremism.” How? By rooting out “actions that betray our oaths” like promoting “ideology” or “doctrine” that challenges the “gender identity and sexual orientation” agenda or advancing efforts that allegedly “deprive individuals of their civil rights.” (12).
There is an assault on Biblical values and precepts; laws, rules, regulations, executive orders are being placed that directly go against the Judeo-Christian values America was founded upon. These liberal, ungodly, and idolatrous rules/laws are slithering their way into the military, and will affect those who believe in Judeo-Christian mores, be they conservative, patriot, or Christian. Mark my words, these restrictions will seek to silence anyone who disagrees with their agenda, especially the saints who want to live a holy life.
2 Timothy 3:12
“12 Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.”
Biden On Women in Military
“At issue are comments Biden made on International Women’s Day emphasizing the goal of making the military more accommodating for females. “We’re making good progress designing body armor that fits women properly, tailoring combat uniforms for women, creating maternity flight suits, updating requirements for their hairstyles,” said a seemingly semi-catatonic Biden. “And some of it’s going to take an intensity of purpose and mission to really change the culture and habits that cause women to leave the military” (13).
US Feminizing while China Masculinizing
There is no issue with women in the military; they provide a vital role in our Nation’s defense; what is a problem is when men are feminized to the point of being weaker physically by lowered standards, which is a concern for America’s national security.
“The other night on the Tucker Carlson Show, Mr. Carlson claimed that the Biden administration was “feminizing” the military while adversaries like China were doing the opposite, seeking to make their own male population more masculine as a matter of their own national security. In pointing out that contrast, Carlson said that the feminization of the military, including pregnant women “fighting our wars for us” new hairstyles and maternity flight suits, made a “mockery” of the military.” (14).
ROTC High Heels
Our soldiers who protect our country, who train for war, who may have to lie down their lives fighting for our freedom are being forced to wear shoes as women, and they are being made a joke. The demoralization of our troops ramped up during the Obama Administration, where our male cadets were forced to wear bright red high heels.
“Delta Company, 172nd Infantry Brigade – was also FORCED to participate in the ‘Walk a Mile in Her Shoes’ event in 2011. Cadets were threatened that their careers would be finished if they refused to participate in a feminist campaign to promote the completely debunked college rape culture myth by wearing red spray painted high heels.” (15)
While it may seem that the soldiers are showing respect for women, which they should, the culture of fighting for our freedoms are being undermined by walking in high heels instead of combat boots. Why not have them volunteer at organizations that give to women. These soldiers should have been out training instead of wearing high heels. They train to fight, to protect themselves, and protect their buddies six, how does one qualify wearing heels with training and moral.?”
I remember when I was a little girl being so proud of my dad when he was in his uniform marching in a parade. He spent hours getting it just so, measuring his ribbons to make sure they were in the right place, and my mom would iron his uniform to perfection. When he walked, he was so proud to be in the Army he walked with a lively step in unison to the other soldiers, and the crowd cheered as they marched by carrying “Ole Glory.” My dad was an excellent soldier, a hero who saved others’ lives, and that is what our soldiers are, heroes who dedicate their lives to keep us free. Our military should not be subjected to this degradation.
In April 2015, under the Obama Administration, ROTC candidates once again had to wear high heels. Attendance was required, or a mark could be put on their record,
“Attendance is mandatory and if we miss it we get a negative counseling. So I just spent $16 on a pair of high heels that I have to spray paint red later on only to throw them in the trash after about 300 of us embarrass the U.S. Army tomorrow.” (16).
God Who is outside of time and space, in His foreknowledge, had the prophet Jeremiah write about what is now happening in the US military. Now we will look at a verse in Jeremiah,
Feminization Prophesied in Bible
Why should we care if men become as women in the military because it is our lives, our freedom, and our country they are protecting? According to the prophet Jeremiah, the strongest soldiers might failed, they were timid and weak as women and their land was invaded and burned. We have looked at the feminization of our military; the question is will America be invaded and have her land burned?
“30 The mighty men of Babylon have forborn to fight, they have remained in their holds: their might hath failed; they became as women: they have burned her dwellingplaces; her bars are broken.”
Using definitions from Strong’s Concordance and Gesenius’ Hebrew Chaldee Lexicon I have included the definitions, and it reads.
The mightiest champions of confusion/Babylonia have become flabby and idle and ceased, to engage in battle, and keep house, lurk in their castles, munitions as a safe retreat, their military virtue, victory is eliminated and dried up, they became as cowardly timid men, they have left desolate or burned, the city gates are violently shattered as destroyed by an army.

Military Targets Free Speech and Conservates
Pentagon Targets Conservative Soldiers
We mentioned the dangers of feminization of the military now, we will see that the Pentagon is targeting the First Amendment.
“PJ Media has just revealed how the Pentagon is purposefully targeting conservatives and trying to transform our military into a progressive force…. However, a complete brainwashing endeavor is underway inside our nation’s military bases. Eighteen and Nineteen year old soldiers are being convinced that family is bad, America is bad, capitalism is bad and so are people who criticize the government.” (18)
Constitutionalists called Extremists
“Warning of a sudden new threat of “extremism” from the right, the Pentagon is indoctrinating military service members in a program “packed with progressive ideology and misstatements about the Constitution,” according to former Department of Justice lawyer J. Christian.
“In a column published by PJ Media, he said the Navy, for example, in a talk titled “Extremism Stand Down,” presents “misstatements of the law and warped characterizations of fellow citizens who believe in constitutional principles” as fact.
“Adams said he obtained copies of all the materials.
“Throughout the services, service members have been shocked at the Biden blitz to root out ideas and people who stand in the way of the administration’s transformative agenda,” he wrote.” (19)
Pentagon Trains Military to Target Conservatives Civilians
The military is being indoctrinated with communist style practices that are training our troops to scrutinize and categorize their own people. This scrutiny pits our troops against each other and innocent civilians who believe in free speech.
“The Pentagon and Defense Secretary Austin recently stated in materials distributed to military personnel “Speech that incites violence or criminal activity that threatens to undermine our government and Constitution is not protected by the First Amendment.” (20)
Covid As War
Christ spoke to us in Luke 21, and in Matthew 24, about what will be happening at the end of days, and Vines translates pestilence as pestilence, any deadly infectious malady,” is used in the plural in Luke 21:11(Matthew 24:7)” (21)
“11 And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.”
“6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.”
War Unleased by China
“Lieutenant General Thomas G. McInerney was assistant vice chief of staff, Headquarters U.S. Air Force, Washington, D.C.” (22)
“When Lt. General Tom McInerney was the #3 guy at the Pentagon, his perspectives helped shape the direction of the nation.
“We are in World War III,” the General said in an interview this morning. “We did not have a pandemic a year ago. We had a biological attack on the whole world. It was intentional, done by the CCP.
“This war has been long planned, but the first big step the Chinese Communist Party took, according to General McInerney, was the release of the Covid-19 coronavirus.
“This morning I’ve got absolute evidence that it came from the Wuhan Lab and it took down the whole global economy, without a doubt,” he said.” (23).
Obey your Government
“Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.”
Pastors Lead to FEMA
Lately, we have heard pastors and leaders tell us to obey our government and its rules concerning covid. In fact, an undisclosed number of pastors have taken training by FEMA and DHS.
“Many people in the independent media have reported that an estimated 28,000-100.000 pastors were recruited by FEMA/DHS, as part of the Clergy Response Team, and that their initial and primary training was to tell their flock to obey the DHS version of Romans 13.” (24)
Obey God Not Man
“29 But Peter and the apostles answered, “We must obey God rather than men.”
“Trewhella, who authored the book The Doctrine of the Lesser Magistrates, argues that Romans 13 has been widely misunderstood and misapplied, and that the Church has understood the need to resist wicked government decrees for 2,000 years.” (25)
Pastor MacArthur defied un-Biblical laws by keeping his church open when he was told to close it due to covid mandates. MacArthur did as the Christians of old and said obeyed God not man.
“County officials have allegedly threatened Grace Community Church in California with fines and possible arrest for reopening his church in defiance of lockdown orders from Gov. Gavin Newsom during the pandemic. Still, Pastor John MacArthur has vowed to continue in-person services.
“We will obey God rather than men,” MacArthur said in a video statement Friday. “We’re going to be faithful to the Lord and we’re going to leave the results to Him.” (26).
“17 But the midwives feared God, and did not as the king of Egypt commanded them, but saved the men children alive.”
What Can We Do
Brothers and Sisters, what are we to do against such corruption in high places where even our church leaders may tell us to obey unjust rules? We need to understand what is happening around us, to go to the Bible and explore what the Word of God says about these rules. God is the only one who can reveal such things to us. What will we do when we are told we cannot speak about the cross and the redemption of Christ for our sins? Or owning a Bible is banned because it is bigoted? What will you do when they impose more and more mandates against our freedoms? What will you do when going to assemble together becomes illegal? Do we have to obey our governments’ tyrannical laws? It is time to pray to fast, to call out to God, to read and meditate on the Bible, and to do as the scripture tells us in 2 Timothy and John.
2 Timothy 3:14
“14 But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them.”
“15 If you love me, you will keep my commandments.”
Supernatural Not Conventional Weapons
The enemy and his evil cohorts are fierce, ruthless in their ways, having depraved minds, they are uncaring for human life, seek their own desires, thirst for control, and are filled with lust and pride; many of such people are positioned in government or are globalists (1 Peter 5:8, Romans 1). It is imperative to understand, according to the Bible, we do not war in the flesh, but in the spiritual (2 Corinthians 10:2b). Conventional weapons of war will not work against the satanic influence that is spreading across our land. How can Christians battle against the demonic powers behind the evil agenda that the globalists, leftists, and DNC are planning against our freedoms, our Christian faith, and ultimately our lives (2 Corinthians 10:3)? Our defense against the anti-Biblical demonic agenda of satan, fallen angels, and workers of unrighteousness is to use the weapons given to us by His Supreme Majesty Jesus Christ. Take heart, fellow Christian, these weapons are mighty in God, they pull down the strongholds of the enemy, that they cast down the words, and cast down every high thing (2 Corinthians 10:5). It is time to first seek the kingdom of God, to strive to live a holy life, to have faith in the promises of God, and pray according to His will with fervent prayer confessing our sins before a Holy God. Do not lose heart fellow Christian, though we walk through the valley, Jesus is our light, and our defense.
2 Corinthians 10:2b-6
“Who think of us as if we walked according to the flesh. 3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. 4 For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, 5 casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, 6 and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled.”
“12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”
