America in Prophecy

Repentance or Judgment?

By Dr. David R. Reagan | Lamb and Lion Ministries

Let’s put this topic in perspective with two foundational Scripture passages. The first is Psalm 33:12 which says: “Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD.” Or, as it reads in Hebrew, “…whose God is Yahweh.” The second is Proverbs 14:34 which reads: “Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a disgrace to any people.”

The Nations in Prophecy

Ever since I began holding Bible prophecy conferences 38 years ago, the number one question asked during Question and Answer sessions has been, “Where is the United States in Bible prophecy?” The horrific events of September 11, 2001 intensified the importance and frequency of this question — and that is certainly understandable.

The Bible is full of prophecies about nations:

Isaiah prophesied in detail about the destinies of Assyria, Babylon, Moab, Syria, Ethiopia, Edom, Arabia, Tyre and Egypt.

Jeremiah covered the same nations, adding Philistia, Kedar, Hazor, Elam and Ammon.

Nearly all the Hebrew prophets spoke about Israel or Judah or both, and many of their prophecies concerned the fate of Jerusalem.

Daniel focused on world empires, and in the process he wrote history better in advance than most historians after the fact.

Daniel and many of the other prophets also spoke about the configuration of nations that would exist in the end times, right before the return of the Messiah. They foretold:

  • The resurrection of the Roman Empire in Europe.
  • The re-establishment of the state of Israel.
  • Israel besieged by surrounding Arab nations.
  • Israel menaced by Russia and its allies.
  • And nations in the Far East capable of sending an army of 200 million against the Middle East.

About the Author

Lamb and Lion Ministries
Lamb & Lion Ministries was founded in 1980 as a non-denominational, independent ministry. The Ministry does not seek to convert people to any particular church. Rather, it seeks to lift up Jesus and draw people to Him as Lord and Savior. The Ministry was established for the purpose of proclaiming the soon return of Jesus. We do not believe it is possible to know the date when Jesus will return. But we do believe it is possible to know the season of the Lord’s return, and it is our conviction that we are living in that season.
