      The stronghold of the American Government is falling to pieces. She has lost her prestige
among the nations of the earth. One of the greatest powers of America was her dollar. The
loss of such power will bring any nation to weakness, for this is the media of exchange
between nations. The English pound and the American dollar have been the power and
beckoning light of these two great powers. But when the world went off the gold and silver
standard, the financial doom of England and America was sealed.

      The pound has lost 50 per cent of its value. America’s dollar has lost everything now as power
backing for her currency, which was once backed by gold for every $5.00 note and up. All of
her currency was backed by silver from a $1.00 note and up.
Today, the currency of America is not backed by any sound value, silver or gold. The note
today is something that the government declares it will give you the value in return but does
not name that value. They definitely are not backing their currency with silver or gold.
This is the number one fall, and it is very clear that the loss of the power of the American
dollar means the loss of the financial power of America. What will happen, since there is no
sound backing for her notes, we do not know.

         What should we expect even in the next 12 months under the fall of the power of America’s
dollar? This means that we have 100 per cent inflation. What could happen under 100 per
cent inflation? Your guess is as good as mine. The power of gold and silver was once abundant
in America. But the touch of the finger of God against the power of so mighty a nation has
now caused the crumbling and fall of America.

        We can easily and truthfully liken the fall of America to the prophetic symbolic picture given
in the (Bible) Revelation of John (18:2). The name Babylon used there does not really say
whether it is ancient Babylon or a picture of some future Babylon.
The description it gives is as follows: “And he [angel] cried mightily with a strong voice [with
authority] saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen and is become the habitation of devils
[Allah has declared the people to be a race of devils], and the hole of every foul spirit and a
cage of every unclean and hateful bird.” The description here given to the Babylon by the
Prophets compares with the present history and people of America and their fall.

      The picture shows the cause of her fall. First, she had become the habitation of devils,
making her a haven for every people that love the works and doings of the devil. Here the
Prophet refers to them symbolically, as being a hole of every foul spirit and a cage of every
unclean and hateful bird.

      People are referred to as birds, snakes, beasts, fish and other animals to tell or represent the
characteristics of that person. It is universally known that the very beginning of the American
people was from the lower class of European people. Their first ruler (President Washington)
was a fugitive from England. The common, dissatisfied and lower grade of European people
followed and boosted his authority. This filled and inhabited America with a very low-class
and low-based people.

     Then this type of people went into Africa and purchased slaves from among our people, who
were also uneducated, most of them, but there were a few who were highly educated. All of
these begin to mix with the low-based, evil-minded, real citizens of the Western Hemisphere
(whites). When America began to get strong in power, she opened her doors to the
underprivileged (laborers) in overpopulated countries, such as China, Japan and other
European states, to seek citizenship in America.

     This brought America into being one of the most mixed people who were granted the freedom
to live any kind of life they chose. They were not forced to serve the God of the Universe who
made heaven and earth, or any religion. They had freedom to worship. This made America a
haven for any people who wished to be free of the compelling aspects of religious and just
rule and authority. This people for the past 500 years has put into practice every evil that is

     The freedom of uncleanliness is granted and is worshiped. The percentage of sexual worship
of the same sex is greater than in any other government on the face of the earth. Little
children are being taught sex almost from the cradle, making the whole nation, as one man
put it, nearly 90 per cent freaks of nature.
On the streets of any metropolitan city in America, it is common to see men sweet-hearting
with men and women sweet-hearting with women and little boys with boys and little girls
with girls.

       It is so common that a decent family is puzzled as to where to send their children for
schooling. There are no all-girl schools as there once were. They are all-girl schools of
sweethearts. The same sex falling upon their own. Boys’ colleges are breeding such filthy
practices, the jails, prisons, and the Federal Penitentiaries are all breeding dens of

      As the Prophet says in the 18th chapter: “She is a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.”
There are types of hateful birds. This is why a symbolic name is given. It means human
beings. There are birds of prey and birds that are unclean, such as crows, owls, buzzards and
ravens, who live and thrive off the carcasses of others. And there are unclean people living
and thriving off the unclean.

       It is time that God intervenes to bring about an end of such people as the wicked of America.
She offers the same filth to all of the civilized people of the earth, and she hates you if you
are against her way of life and will threaten you with death as the Sodomites did Lot and his
followers. But I say to you, as the 4th verse of Chapter 18 says: You that want to be a better
people than this, “come out of her.”

      The so-called American Negroes are referred to here in the 4th verse as being God’s people
(My People): “Come out of her that ye be not partakers of her sins and that you receive not of
her plagues.”
This is a call to the American so-called Negroes to give up a doomed, wicked people that have
destroyed them from being a people worthy of recognition and who have now become lovers
of their enemies and destroyers.

      The 5th verse tells us that “Her sins have reached into heaven and God has remembered her
iniquities and is ready to destroy her.” Her destruction cometh quickly according to the 8th
verse, that plagues of death, mourning and famines which cometh in one day (one year) and
then after that she shall be destroyed by fire, utterly burned.
This is backed up in these words: “Strong is the Lord God who judge her.” Here it gives us a
knowledge that He who judges is well able with power, with wisdom and with deliberate and
careful maneuvering to give judgment against her.
