America Babylon - Part 4

Jer 50:15 Shout against her round about: she hath given her hand: her foundations are fallen, her walls are thrown down: for it is the vengeance of the LORD: take vengeance upon her; as she hath done, do unto her.

Again, "vengence of the Lord" is a recognized "end-times" phrase. "As she hath done, do unto her" could be an indication that just as we have arbitrarily entered other countries to impose our will on them that the US will be invaded. Possible? Afterall how many countries have we entered in the past 50 years?

Here's a short list of just a few that I can remember: Cuba, Korea, Vietnam, Serbia/Croatia, Granada, Afganastan, Iraq...and I'm sure there are more. How many of those actually asked the US to step onto their soil (and I don't see much difference between the US and the UN, because in most cases the US military has lead)

Jer 50:16 Cut off the sower from Babylon, and him that handleth the sickle in the time of harvest: for fear of the oppressing sword they shall turn every one to his people, and they shall flee every one to his own land.

Is it possible that "time of harvest" indicates the actual timing of the destruction of America Babylon as being the fall of the year? Even "sower" which usually indicates spring sowing, could also apply to the fall as there are some crops that are sown in the fall.

Also "flee every one to his own land..." could this indicate that as America Babylon is invaded (the oppressing sword) that many of the immigrants will flee back to their own countries?

According to Wikipedia ancient Babylon was never "destroyed" in one incident. Instead, after being conquered by Alexander the Great, and upon his death being divided between his three generals, the people eventually began leaving Babylon, until eventually the city was empty and desolate and fell in ruin.
