America's Christian Heritage


America was founded by strong believers in Jesus Christ. It was the world's greatest example of freedom and Christian principles. It befriended God's Chosen People, both before and after Israel was reborn as a modern nation. It was blessed by God in keeping with the promise given to Abraham.

I will bless those who bless you,
and whoever curses you I will curse;
and all peoples on earth
will be blessed through you

Prophecy students have wondered for decades why the United States will not apparently be a major player in the Bible’s End Times scenario. Europe is predicted as a Revived Roman Empire, but with a much weaker composition than ancient Rome. Ancient biblical lands will be involved in the prophetic future. They have modern names: Iran, Iraq, Syria, Libya, and others. But how could the one great “superpower” of our generation be ignored at the end of this age? Just a few years ago we could not have imagined how rapidly our beloved country would decline.

An honest evaluation of The United States today reveals that we are growing weaker economically, militarily, and above all, spiritually.

Many Churchs in America a returning from their literal interpretation of the Bible, and have allowed the corrupting influences of secular humanism, the sexual revolution, abortion, and other false beliefs and practices to slowly infiltrate its leadership. This change is predicted in the Bible. It is called apostasy, or a “falling away” from the truth.

As a result, our nation is in danger of God's judgment. But like the biblical example of Ninevah, whose people repented in Jonah's days, there could be a great revival first. We are praying for this!

Senior General: US in Greatest Danger Since 1930s

Nov. 22, 2013 - Senior military analyst Lt. Gen. Thomas G. McInerney told reporters that the the US in the most dangerous situation it has been in since the 1930s just prior to World War II. Here is a summary of his warnings:
- The US is not prepared for an Iranian "Electromagnetic Pulse" attack.
- Iran's nuclear program may not be curtailed by the current Geneva conference.
- The US has alienated its long-time ally Egypt, so they have signed a $4 billion arms deal with Russia designed to let Egypt attain parity with the Israelis.
- By alienating Egypt the peace treaty with Israel may fail, and our country could lose access to the Suez canal and the privilege of mmilitary flights over Egypt.
- Our actions toward Egypt favors the Muslim Brotherhood.
- Our actions toward Syria has legitimized President Assad and acknowledged Russian hedgemony in the Middle East.
- We are disarming the US military.

Glenn Beck: U.S. identified in Bible

Aug. 30, 2013 -
Radio and television host Glenn Beck is now going public with his belief the United States is among the famous “Lost 10 Tribes of Israel,” and America today is suffering calamaties just as ancient Israel did due to its disobedience to the laws of God.
This theory, known as “Anglo-Israelism” or “British-Israelism,” theorizes that after the northern ten tribes of Israel were taken captive to Assyria they gradually migrated north - mostly into Europe, and that Britain and America descended from the tribes of Ephriam and Mannaseh.

Editor's Note: This is an old theory generally discredited by prophecy scholars.

Greg Laurie on Why Bible Prophecy Makes No Mention of America

July 15, 2013 - Evangelist Greg Laurie explains that The United States is not mentioned as a key player during the end times. This might be true for a number of reasons. One possibility is that we might be involved in a nuclear war before the Tribulation. Another is moral collapse of the nation causing us no no longer be a superpower. Proverbs 14:34, says,
"Godliness makes a nation great, but sin is a disgrace to any people."
Laurie reminds us to pray for revival. However, even if we do experience another spiritual awakening, the Rapture of the Church will remove many millions of Christians, which itself would affect the country greatly.

McCain Thanks Kissinger for Leaving Him at Hanoi Hilton

Jun. 4, 2013 - At a celebration of Henry Kissinger's 90th birthday, Senator John McCain thanked him sincerely for his role in ending the captivity of American POW's in Viet Nam's "Hanoi Hilton." The Vietnamese had offered to release him early because his father was about to be promoted to admiral, but he refused to leave the others. When Kissinger came to Hanoi to conclude the agreement that would end America’s war in Vietnam, he was told that he could take McCain back to the U.S.
He refused the offer. 'Commander McCain will return in the same order as the others,' he told them."
McCain told the gathering, "Henry saved my reputation, my honor, my life, really. And I’ve owed him a debt ever since."
