I don’t know why this never occurred to me before, but in hindsight it appears to be so obvious:
the cup of the “wine of the wrath of her fornication“, described in the hand of the harlot in Revelation chapter 18, is remarkably similar to the remedy for the jealous husband outlined in Numbers chapter 5:
“And [the priest] shall make the woman drink the bitter water that brings a curse, and the water that brings the curse shall enter her [to become] bitter. “
And, of course, it has been obvious for some time that the harlot, with whom the “merchants of the earth have waxed rich” through the “abundance of her luxury”, but that eventually “no one buys their merchandise” any more, is Amerika.
Even though that particular water seems to have become wine in the Book of Revelation, the penalty is still for her adultery/idolatry. “For her sins have reached to heaven, and YHVH has remembered her [lawlessness]. Render to her just as she rendered to you, and repay her double according to her works; in the cup which she has mixed, mix double for her.” It gets worse for her, of course, because those plagues are followed by fire.
But the first question seems to become, ‘What does it look like when her thigh rots and her belly swells?”
It sounds like yet another good reason to “come out of her“.
