What is America’s Destiny? (Part 2 of 7)

Americas Destiny 1

Possible Scenarios for a Missing America

There are several possible scenarios to explain our absence from end time Bible prophecy:

1) Terrorist Devastation

Because of our freedoms and open borders, we are a sitting duck for terrorist attacks that could fatally disrupt our society. Such attacks could take various forms — biological, chemical and electronic. They could even take the form of suitcase nuclear dirty bombs.

It is almost impossible to protect a society from suicide terrorists who are willing to sacrifice themselves for their cause.

2) External Nuclear Attack

A second possibility is either direct atomic hits or indirect ones in the form of electromagnetic pulse explosions in the atmosphere above our nation.

3) Internal Moral Rot

A third possible scenario would be an internal collapse due to moral rot which could lead to the breakdown of law and order, resulting in widespread violence.

4) An Economic Collapse

A fourth possibility is an economic collapse due to the astronomical national debt we have so recklessly built up over the past few decades.

In the first edition of my book about the United States in Bible prophecy, published in 2003, I wrote:

“The first thing that comes to mind is an economic catastrophe that will result from our out of control debt situation…There is no way to escape the conclusion that America has become a debt junkie.”

I concluded with this observation:

“I believe an unprecedented economic collapse is highly likely because money is the real god of America, and the true God of this universe is a jealous One who does not tolerate idolatry. God, by His very nature, is going to be compelled to destroy our false god.”

5) The Rapture

There is a fifth scenario that could explain our nation’s absence in end time prophecy, and it is the one I prefer and pray for. I’m thinking, of course, of the Rapture of the Church. Even though we have become a secular nation, we still have many true Christians, many of which are in powerful positions of government, industry and the military.

The Rapture would produce mass chaos in our nation on an unprecedented scale. It would undoubtedly result in martial law. Probably the only way we could survive is to reach out to Europe and ask to be included in the European Union.

So, once again, my conclusion is that the United States is not specifically mentioned in end time Bible Prophecy.

But, we are there!

We are there in prophetic type — in prophetic symbolism.

In the third part of our series concerning America’s destiny, we will discover America’s prophetic type.

  • I agree with your article in total especially about the impact of the Rapture and how USA would probably suffered more than any other nation by the lost of expectant Christians for Christ. USA would be chaotic and in tears (due to so many doubters left behind) and in fear and economic/ financial collapse would be a real possibility. I often think of the “falling away” of the churches as told in the NT is indicative USA as a nation. We are a nation of christian churches and as they stumble in doubt so do the nation as a whole. The bottom line is “if Israel can be tested by the first coming of Jesus why should America and every other nation NOT be tested by the second coming of Jesus?”. The Word of God calls it righteousness which we ought think of as the “fairness principle”! America is no different than any other nation in that regard for the New Jerusalem is on the horizon!

  • God bless you, Dr. Reagan — knowing that Matthew 24 is barking at the door, any one or all of those possibilities could befall not only America, but the planet, of course. With the wisdom God gives us there is comfort in knowing the truth as hell encroaches this world.

  • God bless you and the ministry, Dr. Regan. I certainly agree with all of the possibilities you mentioned and everyone of them is set in place now. We are at a time when anything could happen at anytime not only here in America but also the world. Now I’m not saying which particular event will happen to America, but one thought comes to mind and it is this–God’s word says that if one lives by the sword they die by the sword. And also states that what so ever a man soweth,that also shall he reap. And who was the very first nation to use the atomic bomb at the end of world war two?–it was America. I love our country and hate to see the path we’ve taken over the past few decades, but I firmly believe we as a nation have crossed the point of no return a long time ago. But God in his mercy and grace is giving individuals the time yet to get right with God before it is too late–time is running out, we are no doubt in the season of the Lord’s return. The stage is set for the tribulation judgements to begin. In the meantime we just keep looking up.
