    Is America mentioned anywhere in the Bible in the endtimes? Seems like I remember a verse that mentions (the young lions), but the way it was worded you knew it meant under England. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    I believe it is in the Bible symbolically.

    Revelation 1:11, Rev 3:7-13, when I researched online the only Philadelphia I found was the USA, where our Declaration of Independence & United States Constitution were signed.

    Psalms 33:12

    Genesis 12:1-3

    Prayer discerment, wisdom, fortitude to serve GOD ALMIGHTY is what we need.

    Rev 17:14

    Hopefully it's a good start in your studies.

    I appreciate it, T. Levis, but that's not exactly what I was looking for, but I thank you for replying to my question. I was told I might find it in Daniel, so I'm going to check it out. Please pray for me that I find it. I know it's in there because I have seen the verse in the KJV Bible. I'll let you know if I find it, if you'd like me to. Thank you again!

    Islands of the Sea

    Wesley's Notes for Isaiah 41:1

    41:1 Keep silence - Attend diligently to my plea. Islands - By islands he means countries remote from Judea, inhabited by the idolatrous Gentiles. Renew - Strengthen themselves to maintain their cause against me; let them unite all their strength together. Near - Unto me that we may stand together, and plead our cause, and I will give them free liberty to say what they can on their own behalf.

    [you can use the search (box) engine to read all of the "islands of the sea" or "isles" scriptures]

    This is what I was taught: that these islands are actually other continents bordered by water (seas or oceans). Presumably Gentile. No where near the Mideast regions.

    The Sea of Galilee, the Jordan River, the Red Sea and Mediterranean Sea are mentioned a number of times in both the Old and New Testaments. Each the the three bodies of water serves as geographical boundary markers in Numbers 34:1-12.

    Ezekiel 26:15-18 (sounds like NYC)

    Jeremiah 2:10-11,

    Jeremiah 31:10, Isaiah 60:9,

    Isaiah 42:10, 11:11, 24:25, 66:19, Daniel 11:18

    The USA is bordered on 3 sides by water and would be considered an island.
