THE MYSTERY CAPTIVITY OF AMERICA
This article (and others) may be read online at the following link: Captivity of America
Facts, Data, and Information have been borrowed from several papers written by Dr. Stephen Jones of “The New Kingdom Order” website.
After the death of Solomon, his successor, Rohoboam, errantly decided to increase the tax rate even more than that of Solomon, who was taxing to build the temple. Many of his northern subjects, under the leadership of the Ephraimite, Jeroboam, decided to rebel, which they did, and founded a separate kingdom in the north called Israel in c. 930 BC (historical documents vary on this date). The southern tribes of Judah, Benjamin, and most of the Levites renamed their nation Judah.
Israel lasted for 210 years and officially ended at the fall of Samaria in 721 BC. The vast majority were deported by the Assyrians to an area between the Caspian and Black Seas. The Israelites eventually migrated north and west to Europe and Russia. The ancient Israelites lost their identity and today their descendants are to be found among the “Gentile” peoples of North America, Northwest Europe, Australia and South Africa.
Due to their sins of idolatry and law-breaking, God sent Assyria to punish Israel. The southern nation of Judah were said to have been worse than Israel so God sent the Babylonian empire to overthrow Judah and take the majority of them captive to their home country.
The prophet Daniel explains that Judah would be under the dominion of several beast nations for many years. After Babylon would come Persia, then Greece, and then one describes as dreadful, terrible, and very strong which would be the Roman Empire. Although Israel was not much affected by Persian and Greece, the Roman Empire held sway over them in Europe. After the Church became an official Roman religion the “little horn” of Daniel’s fourth beast which is the Roman Church, became the dominant beast ruling the areas of the new Israeli people as well as many of the Jews who were dispersed after the fall of Judea from 70-73 AD.
Israel and America Connection
Because of the correlation between ancient Israel and America. It can be said the founding of America represented the end of ancient Israel’s long period of tribulation and beast rule. America was founded as a Christian nation and was called to carry the mandate given first to Abraham and later to the nation of Israel. That mandate was to be a blessing to all families of the earth. It was also the mandate given to the Church, for any true believer had opportunity to be Abraham’s seed in the general sense (see Galatians chapter 3) and to be a blessing to the world.
It only takes a few brain cells to understand that America completely failed in this assignment. The USA does have the highest rate of missionary activity, however, the government does not bless people but destroys them. Even people within our own country are not blessed but forced to bless the rich and powerful.
America’s founding is the actual regathering of the tribes of Israel at the end of their “seven times” of tribulation. The modern state of Israel is not the 12 tribes if any. Judah’s time of tribulation, follows a different course of history, though it too has a 2,520-year time frame. Jerusalem was conquered in 604 B.C. by Babylon, and 2,520 years later, British General Allenby took Jerusalem from the Ottomans (now Turkey) in 1917. The Balfour Declaration gave the land to the Jews and they illegally named their country Israel in 1948. Britain Begets Israel to Esau
The Pre-Tribulation Rapture and Futurism
Regardless of denials and arguments from the pre-trib crowd, the modern pretribulation rapture theory is only around 200 years old. The earliest known version was put forth by a Spanish Jesuit named Manuel de Lacunza y Diaz in 1812 in a work entitled The Coming of Messiah in Glory and Majesty. Although originally published in Spanish, it was later translated into English by Rev. Edward Irving and published in 1827.
Up until the publishing of these two books, the understanding and interpretation of the Revelation was done from a historical viewpoint with the Revelation revealing the history of the Church from the day of John the Apostle to the present. Although each commentator cast their own particular viewpoint almost none of them considered the “rapture” to occur at the beginning of the Revelation or that the majority of the Revelation took place in a future time.
The early writers did, in fact, view the organized Church as the persecutor of Christians (dissidents and later Protestants). They also named the Vatican Papal system as the so-called “Antichrist” and the “little horn” of Daniel 7. Neither charge could be denied by the Roman Church.
It would appear that Lacunza was attempting to deflect this condemnation of the Roman Church and he received more assistance than he expected with Edward Irving translating and publishing the book in England then injecting these ideas into Protestantism in 1827.
This concept took the pressure off the Roman Church and placed the Antichrist into the future. Today, most Christians assume that the futuristic view of Revelation has always been taught in the history of the Church. Yet the leaders of most of today’s denominations did not teach futurism, nor did they teach a pre-tribulation rapture.
Mystery Babylon and Dispensationalism
It can be said that God has again brought America back into captivity through the agent of Mystery, Babylon, by imposing the Federal Reserve Act in 1913. Christians did not realize that in 1913 America was taken over by Mystery Babylon. Babylon’s government takeover was a “mystery” (i.e., secret, hidden). While Christians were led to believe that this Mystery Babylon was yet future and would be accompanied by an “Antichrist” in a horrible 7-year tribulation, they did not suspect that they were already in captivity.
Around the same time as the Federal Reserve Act was initiated, a new view of prophecy was formulated called Dispensationalism. This new view was financed by the Jewish lawyer, Samuel Untermyer who also assisted in framing the Federal Reserve Act. As the head of the Lotos Club of New York, he provided free housing for Cyrus I. Scofield as he put together the Scofield Study Bible which legitimized political Zionism in the minds of the Church. The Dispensationalist theory itself has now become mainstream among evangelicals, and it has effected many other issues in the process both spiritual and political.
The view of Dispensationalism conditioned Christians to accept and support a Zionist state by which Jews could supplant and expel the people of Palestine, steal their land, and mistreat or kill anyone who stood in their way. The Abrahamic mandate was ignored.
Dispensationalism was developed apart from any real knowledge of the biblical feast days, which are the core outline of all Bible prophecy. The Spring feasts were fulfilled in Christ’s first appearance; the Autumn feasts are yet to be fulfilled in Christ’s second appearance. Unfortunately, neither Scofield nor his predecessors appear to have had any serious knowledge of this, and so their theory deviated significantly from the revelation of the feasts. The Laws of the Second Coming
Since the FD Act of 1913, the situation in America with Zionist control has gotten worse. Through blackmail and bribery (more Babylonian activity) the USA government officials have become puppets for the Zionists and the current nation of Israel. Governments are overthrown, countries are destroyed, industries and natural resources are stolen, and many people are starved, subjugated, and murdered for the benefit of the Zionist corporations, investors, and billionaires. The USAG and their lackey called NATO are attempting to coerce Russia into some type of war (perhaps a nuclear WWIII) due to their desire to run a gas pipeline through Syria and to confiscate their oil and natural resources. It’s all about the Zionists and their gentile puppets.
Babylon is Falling Down, Falling Down, Falling Down
The reality of the situation is that Mystery, Babylon will soon collapse and come to an end and God will set us free from this monetary and corruptible tyranny. In the days of ancient Babylon, God raised up the “kings of the east” i.e. Persia and Media to conquer Babylon with only one person reportedly killed, the king Belshazzar.
Daniel 5:30 NET And in that very night Belshazzar, the Babylonian king, was killed.
The modern kings of the east are Russia and China. Everyone needs to understand this working of God, rather than fight the very powers that God has raised to set us free. The USG and the European NATO countries are continuously lying about the activities of Russia and Putin. Don’t be a part of the problem.
Revelation 16:12 NET Then the sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates and dried up its water to prepare the way for the kings from the east.
The Shanghai Gold Exchange went online on September 18, 2014. On October 24, the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) was launched by China.
China has also established an international payment system called CIPS, “China International Payment System,” which is an alternative to the SWIFT system that is controlled by the top Babylonian bankers in the West. The SWIFT system channels all international payments through the Federal Reserve, which gives it enormous power and allows it to lay economic sanctions on any nation it pleases. But with the CIPS in place, there is now an alternative payment system. The CIPS system thus removes an enormous weapon from the hands of Babylon.
One of the most important shifts occurred on March 12, 2015, when the UK announced its decision to join the Asia Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB), after President Obama had urged them to boycott it. Other nations followed the UK’s lead within weeks, and when the AIIB officially opened on December 26, 2015, its founding membership was up to 30 nations. (The bank was fully launched on January 16, 2016.) By the time of its launch, its membership had increased to 57 members, representing 62% of the world’s economy, with another 27 expecting to ratify their membership by the end of 2016, when the AIIB member nations will represent 70% of the world’s economy. The UK’s decision to join the AIIB was a startling rupture in the cohesiveness of Babylonian policy. The UK essentially switched sides and joined with the kings from the east. They did so again on June 23, 2016 when the UK decided to leave Europe. This was the so-called “Brexit.” All that remains (as of this writing) is for them to join the BRICS alliance for this to be complete. Babylon is falling apart.
Fighting the Power of God
How could individuals be fighting the powers of God by not understanding the true nature of Mystery Babylon and the “kings of the east” that God has raised to vanquish this world-wide beast?
Some people, misunderstanding the beasts of Revelation 13, may think they are viewing the rise of the “so-called Antichrist”. When this event finally materializes they may become frightened. Since they are expecting a rapture prior to this event, they may view God’s deliverers as the enemy and a part of the Antichrist’s army. Fear may pervade them and their thinking processes may go astray. They will believe the rapture has possibly happened without them because they are unworthy and will have to endure the so-called Great Tribulation
Our present Babylonian leaders (mostly behind the scenes) have been controlling us through debt and fear. They have manipulated many events in recent years to coerce us into giving up our freedoms in the name of Security in the “war on terror.” This is their primary weapon, most likely, that they will use this weapon until the day they fall from power and lose control of the media. All the soon coming events will happen contrary to the prophetic viewpoints and doctrine of most Evangelical Christians andZionist Christians. Even if you disagree with my writing, at least you have been informed and hopefully, will be able to apply this information in the near future to enlighten others.
There will be no “antichrist” as the ruler of a revived Roman Empire, or any empire for that matter. There is no future 70th week of Daniel that will be a time of Great Tribulation. The massive supernatural events depicted in the Revelation represent symbolism of natural and political historical events.

This history itself shows that the “tribulation” is not a mere 7 years reserved to the time of the end. It actually follows the “day for a year” principle (Ezekiel 4:6). A prophetic year is 360 days, and so the long-term tribulation of Israel and Judah lasted 2,520 years. This is supported by Daniel’s prophecies, which speak of a succession of empires that were to dominate the Western World.
Ezekiel 4:6 NET “When you have completed these days, then lie down a second time, but on your right side, and bear the iniquity of the house of Judah 40 days — I have assigned one day for each year.
When the state of “Israel” was founded in 1948, prophecy preachers were certain that the Antichrist would arise either immediately or in 3-1/2 years. They were certain that “The Tribulation” had begun and would last 7 years from 1948-1955. Everyone got ready for “The Rapture,” which positively had to happen either in 1948 or in the middle of this Tribulation (1950-51). Obviously, this did not happen. But instead of questioning their assumptions, they merely went on “Antichrist Watch.” Many candidates came and went, and they are still looking.
