    Rev 17:16, The beast and the ten horns you saw will hate the prostitute (America), they will bring her to ruin and leave her naked……For God has put it into their hearts to accomplish his purpose by agreeing to give the beast their power to rule , until Gods words are fulfilled. The woman you saw is the great city that rules over the Kings of the eart. Read revelation 18 those are the charges God has brought against mystery Babylon. One thing to note is that God gives them the authority to destroy America, therefore America is toast. America now persecutes Israel and does not defend Christians. It is a country with an Islamic compass on its way to hell.
