Product Description

From the Author

This brand new book, fresh off the presses is cutting edge material that challenges the traditional, conservative theology of Biblical prophecy, with a fresh, conservative analysis, that pulls no punches and casts aside the old prejudices about the "mystery Babylon" nation to dare consider that maybe, just maybe America is the "mystery Babylon" of prophecy. The book is bound to raise eyebrows and new questions within the conservative elements of Christianity.

I agree with the author but I don't do so blindly. While reading the Bible, I came to the same conclusion and found it so disturbing that I pushed the thought aside. Besides, I thought, I had never heard any minister say such things. It's very unsettling then to read that this author has come to the same conclusion (only he was smart and wrote a book). I will read this book with more than just idle curiosity.

3.0 out of 5 stars Reviewers and Facts - July 22 2002
By A Customer
I have not read the book (I've read about the book).
The viewer who finds it impossible to believe that the United States could be the end-time Babylon is biblically mistaken about the definition of the mountains.
The mountains stand for seven kings and has nothing to do with land area "...The seven heads ARE seven mountains on which the woman sits, and they are seven kings; five have fallen, one is, the other has not yet come; and when he comes, he must remain a little while."
"...the seven heads ARE SEVEN MOUNTAINS..." and, "...they [stand for] are seven KINGS..."
Rome could never have been the end-time Babylon. The end-time Babylon reigns economically over the world. It is on ocean fronts. It is an economic world super-power. And it is a military world super-power [she fears no one-chap 18] (which Rome is neither today or is unlikely to ever be in the future).
As far as the word, "city" used here, it is from a Greek word, "polis" - a town, probably from the word, "polemos - to bustle" implying a busy place of commerce also indicating strength as in warfare.
Using a word such as city (in a vision) to designate the world-wide influence of the end-time Babylon does not deny that the world power is spread over a much wider area as Chapter 18 describes.
It is clear that this world-power impacts the entire world through its economic and military strength.

5.0 out of 5 stars A love it or hate it book -- Biased readers will hate it March 27 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
I am amazed at how a book can trigger such hatred and animosity by those who simply cannot accept its conclusions. Numerous reviews here and elsewhere on the internet and on radio talk shows about this subject stirs up a hornet's nest of emotions.
America, The Babylon is praised by some as the epitomy of scholarly research and ripped by others as the absolute antithesis of scholarship. How can this be? How can one book generate such exactly extremely emotional and opposite opinions especially the negative emotions that come from patriotic Americans who wear blinders and refuse to see unpleasant facts.
How can this be? Because the book and its author have presented information that claims America is about to be destroyed by God because America is the most evil nation in human history. These assertions are made from the original ancient Biblical writings that contained precise written predictions given by God.
Those who claim to be true, American patriots will automatically reject such a notion. If GOD Himself came down and made such a claim face-to-face, then the negative reviewers of this book that are found here would also reject God's face-to-face assertion and they would find any kind of an excuse to do so.
Meanwhile, the reviewers who have positively reviewed the book have done so on the basis of the material presented in the book. Some state their case more eloquently than others, but both sides are quite emotional in this regard. What is it about this book that triggers such emotional reactions? Upbringing?
I found the book to be very scholarly with multiples of references to ancient Hebrew and Greek words and their ancient definitions. More than that though, the author uses Strong's numbering system so that anyone can verify much of the author's claims but albeit not all of them because some reference works are too advanced for even Strongs. Now this aspect is extremely scholastic and clearly the negative reviewers who claim the author is an idiot and not scholastic, merely reveal their own extreme biases. Such reactions underscore the fallacious arguments of these emotionally vitriolic critics.
There are some who even deride the author's writing style. Well there's nothing like attacking a "straw man" -- like Hitler and his cronies would do. Well, its an easy way to try and win an argument I suppose but it doesn't affect the truth of the matter at all. Such reviews though fail to give a good picture of what a reader should expect to discover in the book.
America, The Babylon provides a plethora of documented assertions that point to America's coming destruction by Divine decree. It uses the ancient Old Testament Hebrew prophetic texts and New Testament Greek prophetic texts to expose the hidden mystery behind the term "mystery Babylon."
The author does a decent job in making his case. It would be better if the typesetting style had used actual Hebrew and Greek letters instead of an English equivalent. That's the only real criticism that I find valid, albeit a minor one about the book. Oh there are a few minor editing issues missed or created in typesetting perhaps, but the content of the material itself is quite compelling and well documented but its not the conclusion that I wanted to read. Too bad but the truth is not what I/We want it to be but rather the truth is what it is regardless of whether we like it or not. I'd really like to think America is not Babylon.
The evidence in this book has proven otherwise to me. It dragged me screaming and kicking to that conclusion. Will it drag you to that conclusion or will you drag yourself to the opposite conclusion. No matter which way you go, your fingernails will be clawing at the factual ground trying to get away from the haunting facts found in this book.
Warning: If you consider yourself to be a "true" American patriotic Christian with a "love it or leave it" mentality then this book will be too disturbing for you to read. Save your money and don't buy it. You're too biased to rationally approach the book.
If you still think its a book you would like to have, it is out of print but maybe one of those negative reviewers will sell you their copy. Amazingly no one wants to part with a copy and there must be a lot out there because its fairly high ranked at Amazon.com out of say 6 million books handled. It has been out of print for a couple of years, yet most people do not wish to part with their copy. Yet Amazon.com apparently has sold bunches, not to mention in bookstores around the country.
But no one is selling their copy.
I give it 5 stars out of 5 just because of the material itself and not because of stylistic or typesetting complaints.

5.0 out of 5 stars Solidly Researched ! May 12 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
There hasn't been a book like this since "The Late Great Planet Earth." That is the magnitude of this book. From one scholar to another my hat goes off to this author. It's a great read that reaches out to not only the scholar but to the average reader so that all can understand. Yet it provides the data for serious researchers to follow up in their own research. Those who stubbornly cling to the notion that Mystery Babylon's identity is Rome, or Iraq, or the Catholic Church or the UN are left gasping for breath as this book's data just destroys the other theories claims. It is an exhaustive presentation of all the facts. But those facts are analyzed within the context of the ancient Hebrew and Greek texts of scripture. The author's analysis is truly without parallel on these issues. He seems to have left no stone unturned. Unquestionably, America is Mystery Babylon. If the scriptures aren't enough for the reader, the author presents empirical support showing extensive Babylonian roots in America's very beginnings. He presents the facts we didn't learn in school. Like the US Capitol building (where our lawmakers meet) is a replica of the Roman Pantheon who had in turn replicated the Babylonian Pantheon! The author documents this with Internet web links to the US Library of Congress website. Then there's the stunning revelation that the Statue of Liberty and also the Statue of Freedom were representations of the Babylonian chief goddess Ishtar who was called the Mother of Harlots, just like Revelation 17:4-5 describes. But there's a lot more. This book is an eye-opener but not all want to have their eyes opened. If the prospective buyer has an unbiased viewpoint he will conclude that Mystery Babylon is America just as the book demonstrates. The book is bound to created further controversy on the subject despite its ironclad documentation. Why? People will reject out of hand what they refuse to accept. This is one scholar who is glad that this book is out for public consumption. It is much needed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rome can't be Mystery Babylon after reading this book. April 3 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Until I read this book I staunchly refuted anyone who dared to besmirch our beloved America. But that all changed when I found out that our nation was clearly founded on Freemasonry as laid out in "America the Babylon". Coombes shows how most of our cherished icons, such as the Statue of Liberty, Capital building, our dollar bill and even the way Washington DC is laid out is Masonic in origin--which itself has its origins in Babylonian symbolism. He also shows how the Babylonian religion is the basis of all other pagan religions and how the names of the god's changed but not their main elements. This is not one of those books you should lay down and read. If you want to thoroughly get a grasp on this book you will need to sit at a table with a concordance, or lexicon, in one hand and your Bible in the other to check everything Coombes says like a good Burean. "America the Babylon" is actually an in-depth Bible study that digs into the original languages and gives us 21st century meanings to many of the words relating to Mystery Babylon. It is the meaning of these words that clearly affects which country is being spoken of in these passages. Richard Coombes shows how the prophecies in the Old Testament regarding the future destruction of Babylon are tied to similar prophecies in Revelation and were never fulfilled in the past nor can they be fulfilled by Rome or Iraq or any other entity in the present except for America. He also shows how all these scriptures clearly lay out the fact that Mystery Babylon is not only a city, but a country as well. The 66 question Babylon Quiz in the back of the book should belay any doubts that any other country but America qualifies for the distinction of being Mystery Babylon. This book has some problems with grammar and editing but the phenomenal amount of research that went into this book far outweighs these insignificant details.ELE

5.0 out of 5 stars America, the Babylon is a must read! Aug. 31 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Are you interested in history, ufos, The Bible, prophesey, or the unexplained? If you are interested in any one of these, then America, the Babylon should be by your reading lamp. Mr. Coombes has written a book that offers an engrossing narrative that you will find hard to put down. The writer produces astounding evidence in support of what many readers may find to be incredible conclusions about what has happened, what is happening, and what is yet to come. Students of history will be interested in the author's interpretation (supported with facts) of several historical events. Those readers interested in ufos, cosmic events, and unusual phenomena will find connections to historic and future events that will shed new light on whatever beliefs the readers may have previously held. The author has given serious and amateur students of The Bible and prophesey some new fat to chew. Those of faith, and those needing it, will both be praising Mr. Coombes work after they read this book.
