Other than Tim McHyde, I've never read an author that viewed the United States of America as "Daughter Babylon". So when I saw the title of this one by Allen Bonck, I immediately purchased it and read it quickly on arrival.
America, the Daughter of Babylon by Allen Bonck (Amazon)
It was a good read, but not necessarily a great one. With more time, Bonck could have made it even more detailed and more compelling, but maybe brevity was his strategy. It is a fairly quick read... as well as clear and concise.
Mother? Ancient Babylon or Europa?
Bonck focuses alot of time on the Occultic/Religious connections between America and the original Babylonian Empire. Unlike myself, he makes no connection between America and who I perceive as the modern (and developing) "Mother Babylon", that is... Europa or the European Union (EU). The main driving force for me reading Bonck's book was a desire to find a confirming view on this specific point, but sadly none were forthcoming.
Bonck basically sees "Mother Babylon" as the ancient Babylonians who no longer exist as a cohesive and/or known modern people. My problem with this view: Jeremiah 50:12 indicates the Mother actually mourns her daughter's destruction. How can she mourn if she no longer exists? Conversely, Europa will certainly be hurt by America's end. On another note, the modern nation of Iraq would probably be more celebratory of America's destruction.
The Jeremiah 50-51 prophecy could simply be figurative, but I'm more and more intrigued how many prophecies we once perceived as allegorical... often turn out very literal once they manifest (this is particularly true of Revelation).
Will the mother of Daughter Babylon become a great Babylonian entity in her own right? This is yet to be seen fully, but it certainly appears that Europa is rapidly moving in that direction. For goodness sake, the EU's seat of power is contained within a building modeled after the Tower of Babel. Hhmmmmmm...
No Two-House Perspective
Bonck doesn't understand or accept the Two-House Reality, so in my view, his arguments are less compelling on some levels. The Mystery of Mystery Babylon is tightly interwoven with the reality that 10-Israel and Jew-dah are in her midst at her destruction (see Jeremiah 50:4). In fact, the End-Time Babylonians themselves are largely of Israelite origin (America and Europa), unlike the original Babylonians.
"America, the Daughter of Babylon" is a valuable read, especially for American Christians who are dismayed by what has become of their country. Unfortunately, only a remnant of them will realize who they are in the big picture and be accounted with those searching for Zion at Babylon's destruction as Jeremiah 50:4 depicts. This is because their loyalty is more attached to the Pride of America (Babylon) and less attached to the Will and Way of Heaven. A most unfortunate reality... for many will likely die in the process of fighting for that Pride.
