America Described in The Bible
America (USA) is metaphorically and factually described in six chapters of the Bible.
A metaphor is A figure of speech in which a word or phrase that ordinarily designates one thing is used to designate another, thus making an implicit comparison. Metaphor is a figure of speech that involves designating one thing with the name of another, a process that is carried out essentially by substituting one term for another.
First, your modern-day Bible Scholars will attest that the events in Jeremiah chapters 50 & 51 have to do with a future New Testament era " Babylon" from the time it was written. Even Matthew Henry, the well respected 17th century Bible commentator as he expounds in Jeremiah chapters 50&51 refers to Babylon in these chapters as the New Testament Babylon correlating Jeremiah chapters 50&51 with the book of Revelation.
Pay close attention to the following because it is the research method to unlocking the metaphoric meanings identifying America and its demise in the bible. The following is one of the metaphoric examples in the bible of describing how America will be attacked and in this scripture how guided missiles will be used against America to destroy it.
Scripture verse in Jeremiah 50:9; For, lo, I will raise and cause to come up against Babylon(America)an assembly of great nations from the north country: and they shall set themselves in array (row) against her; from thence she shall be taken: their arrows (missiles) shall be as of a mighty expert (guided) man; none shall return in vain. (no retaliation)
See, 101 Scriptures metaphorically and factually describing the USA at Beacon of Truth. No nation in the world, past, present, or future except the USA can fulfill these scriptures.
Jer. 51:12 Set up the standard upon the walls of Babylon, make the watch strong, set up the watchmen, prepare the ambushes:(Hebrew word = Arabs)for the LORD hath both devised and done that which he spake against the inhabitants of Babylon.
Discovering this in Jeremiah 51:12 was the beginning of discovering of the Old Testament prophets, Isaiah, and Jeremiah's link to the New Testament book of Revelation's description of Mystery Babylon, in its chapters 17 and 18, metaphorically identifying America as Mystery (Commercial) Babylon, Daughter of Babylon and modern-day Babylon
It was no human coincidence that 19 Arabs, all but one was from Saudi Arabia, participated in the 911 ambush attack on America and it will be no human coincidence when ten Islamic terrorist leaders who have no kingdom will conspire to destroy America and in that hour of nuclear missile attack and its one day of America's destruction by fire, they will receive their kingdoms: "And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings (Islamic leaders or Imams), which have received no kingdom as yet; (they are hidden) but receive power as kings one hour (at the time of time attack on America) with the beast.(anti-christ)These have one mind and shall give their power and strength unto the beast. . . "( initially planned to have the one world leader, Antichrist, man of perdition, surface from obscurity to lead them and rule the world) . . . And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore (USA) sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues. (presently no other nation in the world has more inland and surrounding water, and speaks more foreign languages and has had more legal and illegal immigrants than the USA)
And the ten horns (Islamic leaders) which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, (USA) and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, (WMDs/ NBC's) and burn her with fire. (nuclear firestorms) For God hath put in their (Arabs')hearts to fulfill his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.(God used the Arabs (Medes) in judgment against backsliding Israel several times in the Old Testament scriptures just as he used the 19 Islamic Arabs to bring down two of America's idols of Pride, Arrogance, Commerce, and Greed, the World Trade Towers. Of course, He eventually brought judgment against the Arabs as soon as Israel repented and likewise will eventually bring judgment and victory over modern-day Islam verse as described in vs, 14 ) Rev.17:12,13, 15-17 Note that most of the Book of Revelation is not in chronological order.
Key: Read Isaiah chapters 13 & 47; Jeremiah chapters 50 & 51 and Revelation chapters 17 & 18 keeping in mind that whenever you see Babylon, Daughter of Babylon, Mystery (commercial) Babylon, the whore, substitute America (USA) for these names and you will begin to decipher the metaphoric descriptions into the modern-day terminology and meanings.

The following is an excerpt from my Watchmen Ministries' initial contact email to a new recipient. It may seem redundant, but it is imperative that you use the right tools in your search for absolute truth.
. . . Note! All versions of the Christian Bible have their worth to a point for those who are still growing on the "milk" of the Word even though many modern versions have forbidden additions and deletions. ( Rev. 22:18,19)
When JESUS said not one jot or tittle will pass from the law till all be fulfilled, (Matt. 5:18) one can only conclude that GOD, who does not lie, would not be so heartless as to leave the English speaking people without an absolute written truth so that the teachers who teach GOD's Word to others need the written absolute truth with no additions or deletions.
Through trial and error and much research because of received prophecies and with the help of the Holy Spirit, I discovered along with many other servants of God, including titled Biblical scholars and Theologians the King James Bible (KJV), coupled with the Strong's Exhaustive Concordance Hebrew and Greek dictionary at the leading of the Holy Spirit has been supernaturally protected by GOD over the years in its translation to be the Absolute Truth. With the understanding that with the old English words used in the KJV, with normal everyday reading, can cause one's attention span to be interrupted, i, therefore, recommend the plain-speaking "Spirit-Filled Life Bible, (study bible) (New King James Version (NKJV) , Thomas Nelson, Pub. for everyday reading. But again, when it comes to the proof of Doctrine or when the Holy Spirit causes a check in the readers' spirit, then the KJV and its unique word(s) must be interpreted and analyzed in Strong's Hebrew or Greek Dictionary and always at the leading of the Holy Spirit. In doing so, the avid Bible researcher and those who seek and have a hunger for the Absolute Truth shall surely find correct HOLY SPIRIT doctrine.
To prove the previous statement, know that there are 25 different Hebrew words and meanings and 15 different Greek words and meanings in the KJV Bible for the words, "thought" singular and "thoughts" plural contingent on the context and their use in the Scriptures. Also, to prove the above statement I will mention only one of the many instances where I received a prophecy containing words that were in the KJV that only could be properly interpreted in the Hebrew or Greek in the Strong's Dictionary. The prophecy foretelling pending judgment(s) on America that was received on January 29, 1995, at a Church meeting, which eventually became a matter of public record in a civil court proceeding, on August 14, 1995, contained the phrase " Therefore, I will allow the Enemy to *Ambush and bring this Nation low because of your Pride and Detestable Practices.
In searching this prophecy in the KJV and i discovered the Hebrew word for ambush in the Strong's Concordance is "Arab". Also, additional research of this prophecy in the Scriptures revealed to me that chapters 50 and 51 in the book of the prophet Jeremiah metaphorically accurately described America as the future "Mystery" Babylon. It is significant to mention one of these Scriptures in Jeremiah chapter 51:12 since it confirms the previous prophecy "Set up the standard on the walls of Babylon; Make the guard strong, Set up the watchmen, Prepare the ambushes.(Heb. Arab) For the Lord has both devised and done What He spoke against the inhabitants of Babylon.(America). Jeremiah 51:12. Many Bible Prophecy Scholars and researchers in eschatology have known for years that Jeremiah chapters 50 and 51 describe events that have not happened yet and coincide with the future events in Revelation chapters 17 and 18, which undoubtedly metaphorically and factually identify "America" at the "Mystery" Commercial Babylon destined to be attacked in 1 hour and destroyed in one day by nuclear fire. We all know that the enemies of America have the nuclear capability to simultaneously surprise attack America in one hour to be devastated by fire (Nuclear Fire Storms) in one day as described in Revelation chapters 17 & 18, Jeremiah chapters 50 and 51< Isaiah 47 and many other Scriptures.
Watchmen Ministries has received several last days judgment prophecies over the past 16 years. In verifying these prophecies to GOD's servants has led to extensive research in the Scriptures to prove that GOD's true servants-prophets, in fact, are hearing from the LORD, have resulted in these revelations in the Scriptures of the Last Days. Some of which metaphorically and factually identify the USA as the "Mystery" Commercial Babylon or "daughter" of Babylon positively identified to suffer nuclear attack in one hour and be destroyed in one day by nuclear fire resulting from conspiracy of 10 leaders. (Revelation 17:16,17)
