America not mentioned in the bible
America Will Burn: The United States in Bible Prophecy by Nathan FordFor many years, Christians have been taught that America is not mentioned in Bible prophecy. Given her power, size, and influence in the world, this has seemed incredulous. However the Bible does speak of both a nation and a city that it refers to as “Mystery Babylon the Great” or as the “Daughter of Babylon”. Many traditional Bible scholars will tell you that this is referring to the Vatican in Rome. Still others believe that this is referring to the ancient city of Babylon being rebuilt, or even of a nation not yet created on the earth.
However, there are a growing number of scholars who are beginning to notice how much the description of Mystery Babylon seems to apply to the modern United States. When I also began to research the topic I was astounded by the similarities. Quickly I realized that this could not be a coincidence. America IS mentioned in the Bible, and at some length. Recognizing this is extremely important to understanding the warnings God has laid out for us through Bible prophecy.
When Americans Say They Believe in God, What Do They Mean?
This year, the Jewish festival of Passover — April 10 to 18 — coincides with the Christian celebration of Easter. And Easter, somewhat unusually, falls on April 16 in both the Orthodox and Western calendars. Both Passover and Easter are based on biblical accounts. Easter marks the resurrection of Jesus, as described in the Christian Gospels. In this important season for both traditions, here are five key facts about Americans and their holy texts.

Where is America in Bible Prophecy? Pastor Mark Correll
Bible prophecy related to the end times mentions many nations, including Libya, Iran, Iraq Ethiopia, and possibly even China and Russia, but not the United States of America. In an article on his blog , Pastor Greg Laurie gives three plausible reasons for the nation's exclusion. Why are we not in the last-days scenario? One reason why the United States is not mentioned in Scripture is perhaps because the nation "might be devastated by a nuclear war," the pastor writes. The threat remains despite the dissolution of the former Soviet Union, Laurie argues. I hope this isn't the case, but we cannot rule it out. Laurie is for a strong military for that reason.
The answer is, of course, no, America is not mentioned in the Bible, only prophecy pundits with a Bible in one hand and a newspaper in the other find the U. Mike Evans is a classic case in point. In his book American Prophecies, he suggests that we might see America in Isaiah He also says that if you look at Revelation 17 and 18, we could identify America with mystery Babylon the Great Mother of Harlots. Then we have, of course, a lot of dispensationalists critiquing other dispensationalists. For example, Hal Lindsey acknowledges that America is not in Bible prophecy, so he resists those prophecy pundits who say it is, but then he says the fact that America is not in the Bible must mean that America will not be a significant player in the future.
