CAN LADY LIBERTY BE THE PROSTITUTE IN REVELATION
A friend posted a very provocative piece of art work that concerns the United States of America. In the Art-work Lady Liberty is pictured as a prostitute and is mentioned in conjunction with the Woman riding the Beast in the Book of Revelation. It is for certain that my friend was trying to provoke thought and comment. He accomplished his mission. However, I have not been able to get a response posted, so I thought it good to just make my response into a blog. Here it is below.
UNDERSTANDING WHO THE USA IS IN PROPHECY
Provocative, yes but impossible from a Biblical perspective! I supposed the composer will get a reaction that he has calculated, however his interpretation of the book of Revelation has nothing to do with Scripture.
It is impossibility! Here is why.
To understand Biblical prophecy you have to have a good relationship with God. No one understanding God's plan would EVER call the country (USA) that helped end the persecution of the PROSTITUTE as being the PROSTITUTE.
DETAILS: In the book of Daniel Prophecies in Daniel Chapter 2 and also chapter 7, shows the future all the way until Christ's second coming and his taking over the world.
It was shown that ONLY 4 kingdoms would occupy a general area that we are suppose to watch. Babylon, media Persia, Greece and then AN UNNAMED and little described kingdom. We know the name came to be ROME.
Funny thing! The world was not taken over by Christ then, even though he came and qualified for it by overcoming sin. It was promised that he yet would come and do what was prophesied in the future at his second coming.
Now Jesus told us that when we see all the things prophesied by Daniel and himself, we would know that the time was NEAR, even at the doors.
Daniel didn’t understand the prophecies and was told that the prophecies WERE SEALED until the time of the end, when knowledge would greatly increase. Now, the Apostle John in the Book of Revelations finished giving the details of the 4th kingdom (ROME). It was to fall and then be REVIVED 7 times THROUGHOUT history, NO ONE WOULD UNDERSTAND as was told Daniel until the last days. WHY?
