The Collapse of America as the economic superpower of the world will result in the shifting of this power to the Middle East. There are two Bible prophecies that foresaw this move. They are in Zech 5. The first one is in vs 1-4 which predicts the global economic depression and the second one is in Zech: 5-11 which tells that the Great Whore is moving to Iraq.
The Parable of the Flying Scroll - global depression
The prophecy of the global economic collapse in vs 1-4 is also an indictment on the systematic chicanery and the systematic thievery that mark the political and corporate world. God is judging the lies, spin and greed that dominate entire nations from the top down.
“Then I turned and raised my eyes, and saw there a flying scroll. And he said to me, “What do you see?” So I answered, “I see a flying scroll. Its length is twenty cubits and its width ten cubits.
“Then he said to me, “This is the curse that goes out over the face of the whole earth: ‘Every thief shall be expelled,’ according to this side of the scroll; and, ‘Every perjurer shall be expelled,’ according to that side of it.” “ I will send out the curse,” says the LORD of hosts; “ It shall enter the house of the thief And the house of the one who swears falsely by My name. It shall remain in the midst of his house And consume it, with its timber and stones.” Zech 5:1-4
The curse is an economic curse in that it liquidates or consumes property. Because the nations have gained their wealth by evil schemes, lies and often-legalized thievery they have forfeited their wealth. Where does this wealth go. According to the Proverb, it will eventually go to the just. However, it must make a pit stop. It will first be gobbled up by the Great Whore economic system. It is because she owns almost everything in the world that she will trade with all of the nations of the world.
The Woman in the Basket is the Great Whore
The prophecy of the Great Whore moving to Iraq is written in verses 5-11. The woman in this parable is none other than Mystery Babylon, the Great Whore. The text says that she is wickedness
Then the angel who talked with me came out and said to me, “Lift your eyes now, and see what this is that goes forth.” So I asked, “What is it?” And he said, “It is a basket that is going forth.” He also said, “This is their resemblance throughout the earth: Here is a lead disc lifted up, and this is a woman sitting inside the basket”; then he said, “This is Wickedness!” And he thrust her down into the basket, and threw the lead cover over its mouth.
Then I raised my eyes and looked, and there were two women, coming with the wind in their wings; for they had wings like the wings of a stork, and they lifted up the basket between earth and heaven. So I said to the angel who talked with me, “Where are they carrying the basket?” And he said to me, “To build a house for it in the land of Shinar; when it is ready, the basket will be set there on its base.” Zech 5:5-11
The text states she is carried by two women. The description fits that of angels. Out of all of the references to angels in the Scriptures, this is the only one that describes them in feminine terms. Whether these are literally females or whether this is merely a word picture is secondary: The picture being drawn here clearly suggests that the woman called wickedness, who is the personification of evil, is so seductive that the “male” angels cannot be trusted with her transport. God appoints two women to do this very special job.
The Great Whore is transported to Shinar (Sumer). Shinar is an ancient name for Babylon. The secret community that rules over the nations will be moved to her base in literal Babylon before the return of the Lord.
