Excerpts from Introduction "So what sort of signs of the times should those who "walk in the day" be able to see; as the Day approaches?Some highly visible characters are identified in John’s prophecies.
One of these characters is a nation that rules over all the other nations, and is such a mighty world power that the other nations proclaim, “Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?” (Rev 13:4)
√Trading capital of the world √ Chief military power √ Unknown at writing of Revelation √Unfaithful to God √ Citizens live in luxury √ Given to sinfulness
√Persecuting the saints √Requiring body identifier
The persecution of those who truly believe in Jesus Christ is about to begin in America.
"Another, and perhaps the most significant, similarity between the Great Harlot and the US is how perfectly She exemplifies “the Mother of all Harlots”.What is the source of legalized fetal abortion?Where have premarital sex and the homosexual lifestyle been legitimized and promoted?What is the world’s source of pornographic images?Not to mention the biblical definition of spiritual adultery; turning away from the Holy One of Israel. “The inhabitants of the earth were made drunk with the wine of her fornications”(Rev. 17:2b). Has any nation ever been so successful at spreading her filth throughout the earth?Could a future nation possibly match the breadth and depth of moral depravity that this great country has poured out upon the globe?Hard act to follow!Dare I suggest; impossible.What more could be indulged in?How could a nation be more influential?"
Interpretation of the Book of Revelation, with special emphasis on the identity of Babylon.
Inspired by the events of September 11, 2001, Steinle decided to conduct an in-depth study of the New Testament Book of Revelation. He of course treads well-covered ground, and his conclusion will come as little surprise–the fall of the World Trade Center, he intones, may be the beginning sign of the fall of the Great City of Babylon as described in Revelation. Steinle’s opening chapters describe in detail the various prophesies revealed to John at Patmos, drawing in other biblical literature as well, such as from the Book of Daniel and the apocalyptic sayings of Jesus in the Gospels. The author brings up the intriguing possibility that the city of Babylon does not represent a single nation but perhaps a world government or federation, but he still believes that the United States, as a single world superpower, may be the center or beginning of such a dominating global force. He points out that two major prophecies have yet to come to fruition: global persecution of Christians and the marking of citizens in order to be able to conduct commerce. Both prophecies, he believes, are possibilities within the foreseeable future. Steinle’s approach differs from those of many other writers on this topic in a major way: He is careful not to make absolute statements or to definitively interpret this very difficult scripture. By presenting his ideas as possible interpretations only, he succeeds in maintaining credibility even with the skeptical reader. His conclusion–that Christians may want to flee the U.S. if it truly is the biblical Babylon–is intimated rather than bluntly stated. Steinle’s reading of scripture is certainly fundamental in approach, but modest enough to be a welcome read to a wide audience.
Modest, yet traditionalist, reading of Revelation. -- Kirkus Reviews
"Come out of her, My people" is the only major book of this title which preserves its biblical context. ("Come out of her, My people" (Rev 18:4) is a command to leave a physical location - not merely a separation from world systems.)
The unsealed rendering of Revelation fueled the Reformation and saved countless souls from martyrdom. What might the power of unsealed prophecy do to revive America?
