Minister: US isn’t in the Bible because the Rapture will turn it into an atheist hellhole
Appearing on Voice of Christian Youth America, President of World Prophetic Ministry, Dr. Ed Hindson, explained that the United States is not mentioned in the Book of Revelations because so many Christian Americans would be raptured that the country would descend into chaos leaving the Tribulation to play out elsewhere.
As Right Wing Watch documents, Hindson explained that the U.S. would diminish as a superpower in the future because, “The United States would be incredibly impacted by the Rapture because there are more professing Christians here than perhaps any other place on the planet.”
Conceding that millions of people would be missing worldwide in “China, England, Europe,” Hindson said the U.S. would be most adversely affected when Christians were taken by God to heaven.
“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.”
