Dr. Ed Hindson, President of World Prophetic Ministry, went on the VCY radio show and explained why America isn’t mentioned anywhere in the Bible. The answer, he says, is that America will be all but destroyed when the rapture happens, so the tribulation would have to take place somewhere else.
“What would happen, I think, in the United States is the sudden Rapture of believers would leave this country totally secularist, totally atheist, totally in the hands of anti-Christian forces, and it would decimate the economy, the banking system, even the military, the police system,” he explained. “It would throw this country into chaos overnight. Now, it would throw any country into chaos, but the larger percentage of born-again believers, the larger percentage of the chaos.”Pressed by the host to explain why there is no mention of the U.S. in the Book of Revelations, Hindson explained that the country would be “decimated” and that the seven years of Tribulation before Jesus returned to set up His earthly kingdom would probably occur elsewhere because, “the Bible makes it clear the Antichrist will rise out of the old Roman Empire in Europe.”
“Unless you try to view the Babylon of the End Times as America, there’s no indication that America’s there anywhere [in the Bible],” Hindson suggested. “So, is she totally destroyed? Possibly, but not likely. It’s more likely that she’s decimated by the impact of the Rapture, and the power then shifts to Europe, because I think the Bible makes it clear the Antichrist will rise out of the old Roman Empire in Europe.”
A country that is totally secularist? You know what that sounds like to me? Heaven. The rest of this is just comedy gold.
