Could the United States be mentioned in Prophecy?

With the events happening in the Middle East transpiring at an alarming rate, I am placed into a situation I care not to be in. As the editor of Worthy News, I am placed into a position where there is great responsibility given to me by the Lord. Worthy News is viewed by over 100,000 unique visitors a month. I can now understand the great responsibilities that pastors must take behind the pulpit, and the vast responsibility given to them by the Lord. The level of accountability given to them is so much higher. Of all the articles I have written from a faith perspective, I have steered away from that which is controversial. (The Prayer of a righteous man availeth much and The dangers of a lop sided message) The truth is controversial enough. But now I have come to a place where I am between a rock and a hard place. There’s passages like Ezekiel 33:6; But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman’s hand. The reason for this message is so that I can remove this burden from off my shoulders. Remove the burden that I never sounded the trumpet and thus have blood required at my hands. I am by no means dogmatic about this interpretation, but rather present this article as something for believers to consider. 1 Corinthians 8:2 And if any man think that he knoweth any thing, he knoweth nothing yet as he ought to know. May time be the judge.
