Bible teachers are split over whether there is an upcoming Psalm 83 War or not. Is the psalm simply imprecatory, or is it prophetic still to this day? If an imprecatory psalm, then it’s only one that calls down curses on Israel’s enemies. If prophetic, the issue is whether its foretelling was fulfilled in Israel’s 1948 War of Independence or one of its subsequent conflicts; or does its prophecy remain – still not achieved?

1) Why could America be the target for the Revelation prophecy?
2) Why is it unlikely that our nation is the Babylon pointed to as being destroyed in one day, i.e. a single hour?
