A Fiery 1-Hour Destruction
Not an Economic Slide into Poverty
Yet Secular Economists Predict America's Doom is:
Food Riots, Tax Rebellion by 2012 in USA

Author of "America, The Babylon: Volumes 1, 2"
Gerald Celente, the CEO of the Trends Research Institute was interviewed on FOX Cable News the other day and asked about future trends for America. Celente gave a bleak future, indicating that American's would be in revolt by 2012.
Celente says that trend analysis indicates food shortage, food riots would develop. Massive homelessness would be rampant in the United States and various tax rebellions would break out at the local, state and federal levels. Celente predicts conditions will be worse than anything in the Great Depression of the 1930s.
So who is this guy and how reliable is he? He has successfully predicted the stock crash of 1987, the Asian Currency crisis of 1997, and in November of 2007 in an interview with UPI, Celente predicted that 2008 would be known as "The Panic of 2008." He added that, "giants tumble to their deaths" as in giant corporations like Lehman Brothers, Bear Sterns, etc. Even now, GM, Ford and Chysler are near collapse and may not last til the end of the year without a congressional bailout.
So what does the Mainstream News Media think of Celente? Take a look below:
"When CNN wants to know about the Top Trends, we ask Gerald Celente."
— CNN Headline News
"A network of 25 experts whose range of specialties would rival many university faculties."
— The Economist
"Gerald Celente has a knack for getting the zeitgeist right."
— USA Today
"There’s not a better trend forecaster than Gerald Celente. The man knows what he’s talking about."
"Those who take their predictions seriously ... consider the Trends Research Institute."
— The Wall Street Journal
"Gerald Celente is always ahead of the curve on trends and uncannily on the mark ... he's one of the most accurate forecasters around."
— The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
"Mr. Celente tracks the world’s social, economic and business trends for corporate clients."
— The New York Times
Celente believes that America's middle class will fuel a revolution against government by the year 2012. He also anticipates the rise of a third political party.
"It’s going to be very bleak. Very sad. And there is going to be a lot of homeless, the likes of which we have never seen before. Tent cities are already sprouting up around the country and we’re going to see many more."
"We’re going to start seeing huge areas of vacant real estate and squatters living in them as well. It’s going to be a picture the likes of which Americans are not going to be used to. It’s going to come as a shock and with it, there’s going to be a lot of crime. And the crime is going to be a lot worse than it was before because in the last 1929 Depression, people’s minds weren’t wrecked on all these modern drugs – over-the-counter drugs, or crystal meth or whatever it might be. So, you have a huge underclass of very desperate people with their minds chemically blown beyond anybody’s comprehension."

of the above news story
by R.A. Coombes, author of "America, The Babylon"
Gerald Celente is a trend analyst not a soothsayer or an occultist nor a prophet. He bases his outlook on statistical trends and sees where they may lead. The problem with such predictions is that they do not take into account, Divine intervention or Biblical Prophecy.
If I am correct in my assessment that America is the future Babylon of Pre-millennial prophetic analysis, as seen in the prophecies of Isaiah chaptes 13, 14, 47 and Jeremiah 50 and 41 along with Revelation 16:17-21 and all of chapters 17 and 18, then something will happen to America before she can devolve into a 3rd world nation status. Why?
Because the Bible's Babylon prophecies state that Babylon is the last of the super-power nations. At the time of this future Babylon's demise, Babylon (America) will be thought of us the world's marketplace leader who sets pricing for a long list of commodities and goods and services. When Babylon (America) is suddenly destroyed by fire in a one-hour Divine judgment, she is THE world's engine of wealth. At her destruction, the mega-merchants of the earth lament her destruction, and the text (Rev 18:11) says that no one buys their goods any more. It is the end of international trade.
Revelation 18: 11-13
Verse 11. "And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more:
Verse 12. "The merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble,
Verse 13. "And cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men.
The timing of this is indicated back in Revelation 17:12-18 where the Antichrist is voted into power by the 10 horns in the same one hour time period that Babylon is destroyed by fire. Babylon's fiery destruction triggers the rise to power of the Antichrist. This means that the destruction of Babylon occurs before the start of the Tribulation period.
Verse 12. "And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.
Verse 13. "These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.
Verse 14. "These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.
Veree 15. "And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.
Verse 16. "And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.
Verse 17. "For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.
Verse 18. "And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth."
Furthermore, Revelation 18:4 indicates that just before the fiery, 1-hour judgment upon Babylon, a voice in Heaven gives a command to Believers to "Come UP and OUT of her My people" - In the Greek grammar the verb for "come up/out" is repeated twice in the Greek. Greek grammar rules indicate that the term in such as this case is an "imperative mood" command. It requires the recipient of the command to move towards the speaker - in the case the speaker is up in the heavens and the recipients are commanded to move UP and OUT of or "Out of and UP" towards the Voice in Heaven. This matches precisely with First Thessalonians 4:16-17, the Rapture verses.
"And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues."
και ηκουσα αλλην φωνην εκ του ουρανου λεγουσαν εξελθατε ο λαος μου εξ αυτης ινα μη συγκοινωνησητε ταις αμαρτιαις αυτης και εκ των πληγων αυτης ινα μη λαβητε
The original Gree word: εξελθατε is an aorist tense in the imperative mood. It means to "Come UPPPPPPPP and OUTTTT of - and the Greek rules of grammar require the ones being commanded to come towards the direction of the speaker giving the command. Where was this voice located? --- "Voice FROM Heaven."
This means the command is for those who hear it to come Up into heaven to the speaker giving the command.
The Greek word: εκ του is the same root word and simply by double repitition reaffirms this command suggesting urgency and the certainty of it. The implication of this command then, based upon the Greek rules of grammar suggest or imply:
"You WILL do this and you WILL do it NOW, without delay.
By double repetition it may also mean two calls - the first one, for the Dead in Christ and the second one for those who have remained alive til this moment.
Now compare the Revelation 18:4 verse with First Thessalonians 4: 16-17
Verse 16. "For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
Verse 17. "Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
Now, verse 16 is not precisely translated correctly. The term "with a shout" in the King James Version is actually the Greek word:
Which literally means "with a WORD OF COMMAND"
SO THAT -- what is being uttered with the voice of the archangel is NOT A SHOUT per se - ...
BUT RATHER - A WORD OF COMMAND or A COMMAND.
Now, it may also be loud, like a shout, and that can be implied, but, but, but - the term means MORE than merely A SHOUT. -- IT IS A COMMAND.
Now what was Revelation 18:4 all about?
Revelation 18:4 - the term "COME UP and OUT of her" - is written in the Greek grammar in the grammatical mood, called the "Imperative Mood."
Imperative mood is the mood that means - 'A COMMAND"
What we have in Revelation 18:4 and 1st Thessalonians 4:16-17 is a complete match up - grammatically and descriptively.
The voice in each passage is located as "from heaven" and the voice gives "A COMMAND"
So now that we have settle this matter of what Revelation 18:4 is -- THE RAPTURE, then the next question is -- WHEN does this occur.
The WHEN of Rapture of Revelation 18:4
So what we have is the Rapture occuring first, then the one-hour fiery destruction of Babylon (America) and during Bablyon-America's demise, the Antichrist (the Beast) is voted into power.
Now, there is also one other element to consider. Babylon is judged twice, as Revelation 18:6 indicates - a double-judgment.
Verse 6. "Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double."
The second judgment is described in Jeremiah 51 as a water judgment in which the oceans come up over her, and she sinks, never to rise again from the watery grave. This is found in Jeremiah 51:42, 55 and 64 plus again in Revelation 18:21 as well as Revelation 16:17-21. The water judgment takes place as Jesus Christ descends from heaven with the Church right behind Him to conquer planet Earth at the 2nd Coming.
Jeremiah, Chapter 51
The sea is come up upon Babylon: she is covered with the multitude of the waves thereof.
Because the LORD hath spoiled Babylon, and destroyed out of her the great voice; when her waves do roar like great waters, a noise of their voice is uttered:
Thus shall Babylon sink, and shall not rise from the evil that I will bring upon her-
Verse 17. "And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done.
Verse 18. "And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great.
Verse 19. "And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath.
Verse 20. "And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.
Verse 21. "And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.
Thus - we conclude that if this Gerald Celente is correct in his trend analysis, that America would be economic toast by 2012, then prior to that, before America devolves into such a state, America, will be suddenly destroyed - in hour of one day -- by fire. This would happen before the USA could experience the impact of an economic collapse.
What I've just stated is a summary statement, but to really understand it as a fact waiting to happen, it would be well to read my 2-volume work - "America, The Babylon" where I document from the original Hebrew and Greek texts the textual description that fits onliy America, not Iraq and not Rome or the Roman Catholic Church. The Hebrew and Greek data points simply do not point to any other nation nor to any church. And I prove this in my work. Plus, I also provide empirical proof that America is more Babylonian that ancient Babylon ever was.
I also point out that the woman of Revelatoin 17:5 is not a symbolic reference to a church, but rather to a fallen angel who is a kosmkrator class angel charged with protecting the nation assigned to it. This fallen angel at one time guarded ancient Babylon and was known as the Chief goddess of Babylon - by the name of Ishtar. (or Inanna in early dialect). Ishtar held many other title names in ancient Babylon, but chief among them was "The MOTHER OF THE HARLOTS." Ishtar also held the title of ""Goddess of Liberty" or "Goddess of Freedom."
"And upon her forehead was a name written, a mystery, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
I explain in great detail in my 2-volume work the shocking details about this angel-goddess and the reilgion of salvation by "holy sex" and that her priestesses were not called priestesses but rather whores or harlots and they were holy and sinless in the eyes of their worshippers. The Ishtar religion invented the concept of money, coinage, banking and fractional reserve banking as well as lending money at interest. All of this underscores the points of Revelation chapter 17, including that Ishtar sits on 7 "hora" (not hills, not mountains) which is the greek word meaning "continents"
I explain why Revelation 17:9 and the word "hora" cannot refer to the 7 hills of Rome but rather to the mystery doctrine of Ishtar which states that she sits or extends her influence to each of the 7 'hora/continents" and the 7 seas of the world." and that her crown of 7 spikes reflects the occult enlightenment of her brother, the sun-god Utu upon each of the 7 hora and 7 seas of the world.
And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.
The word for "mountains" in the Greek is the Greek word: ορη - or "hora" as transliterated into English. The word in root form means "Large land mass" as in a 'continent, or a mountain or a desert' - but definitely NOT A HILL.
Now some commentators and new-age translations translate the term as "hill."
This is a totally invalid term for the passage. Furthermore some commentators then take that invalid term and apply it to the idea that it refers to the 7 hills of Rome. This is equally wrong.
The appropriate term for the 7 hills of Rome was the Greek word "Bounos" which actually derived from the Romans and was their term for the 7 hills of Rome.
Therefore, if verse 9 was supposed to be a reference to Rome, then why was the wrong term used??????????
The answer is that the right term was used - the interpretation is just wrong.
The verse is NOT referring to Rome, but to the 7 continents of the world, indicating the woman has influence over the whole world.
I point out in my book that the Goddess Ishtar's religion had a 'mystery' doctrine which the Greeks wrote about in describing Ishtar's original mystery dogmas.
Ishtar was said to have a crown of 7 spikes or horns that functioned to reflect the occult enlightenment of her brother, the sun-god "Utu" aka "Shamash" and the function of the 7 spikes/horns was to reflect that occult enlightenment upon each of the 7 "hora" - or ορη of the world and of the 7 seas of the world. Indicating she spread her brother's occult enlightenment upon the entire world.
Verse 9 is thus another clue indicating that the woman of Chapter 17 is Ishtar.
There are many, many more clues in Revelation 17 and 18 tipping us off to the identity of the woman as being Ishtar, but it takes a whole book to explain this.
I also document that the Statue of Liberty and the Statue atop the US Capitol Dome are art works depicting Ishtar, the Mother of the Harlots - plus documentation from the US Library of Congress showing the US Capitol was orginally called the Temple of the Goddess of Liberty and thus the Temple of Ishtar.
