JerUSAlem, O Harlot of Babylon the Great
The lessons that have not been learned by my people Israel that reside in JerUSAlem and have been domiciled in Babylon through personification is great and an abomination. One of the misunderstandings of Sodom is that it was destroyed for pervasive sexual acts, which is just one of the multiple identifiers of Sodom’s iniquity. Daughters in these passages has to do with villages or towns
Ezekiel 16:48-63 48As I live, saith the Lord GOD, SodomH5467 thy sister hath not done, she nor her daughtersH1323, as thou hast done, thou and thy daughters. 49Behold, this was the iniquityH5771 of thy sister Sodom, pride, fulness of bread, and abundance of idlenessH8252 was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poorH6041 and needyH34. 50And they were haughtyH1361, and committed abominationH8441 before me: therefore I took them away as I saw good. 51Neither hath SamariaH8111 committed half of thy sinsH2403; but thou hast multiplied thine abominations more than they, and hast justified thy sisters in all thine abominations which thou hast done. 52Thou also, which hast judged thy sisters, bear thine own shame for thy sins that thou hast committed more abominable than they: they are more righteous than thou: yea, be thou confounded also, and bear thy shame, in that thou hast justified thy sisters.
53When I shall bring again their captivityH7622 (H853), the captivity of Sodom and her daughters, and the captivity of Samaria and her daughters, then will I bring again the captivity of thy captives in the midst of them: 54That thou mayest bear thine own shame, and mayest be confounded in all that thou hast done, in that thou art a comfort unto them. 55When thy sisters, Sodom and her daughters, shall return to their former estate, and Samaria and her daughters shall return to their former estate, then thou and thy daughters shall return to your former estate. 56For thy sister Sodom was not mentioned by thy mouth in the day of thy pride, 57Before thy wickednessH7451 was discovered, as at the time of thy reproach of the daughters of Syria, and all that are round about her, the daughters of the Philistines, which despise thee round about.
58Thou hast borne thy lewdnessH2154 and thine abominations, saith the LORD. 59For thus saith the Lord GOD; I will even deal with thee as thou hast done, which hast despised the oath in breakingH6565 the covenantH1285. 60Nevertheless I will remember my covenant with thee in the days of thy youthH5271, and I will establish unto thee an everlasting covenant. 61Then thou shalt remember thy ways, and be ashamed, when thou shalt receive thy sisters, thine elder and thy younger: and I will give them unto thee for daughters, but not by thy covenant. 62And I will establish my covenant with thee; and thou shalt know that I am the LORD: 63That thou mayest remember, and be confounded, and never open thy mouth anymore because of thy shame, when I am pacifiedH3722 toward thee for all that thou hast done, saith the Lord GOD.
JerUSAlem is the prophetic temple city called America that dwells with Babylon known as the United States, thus we have JerUSAlem called the United States of America. In Revelation 11:2 we have the terms court and temple which have distinctive meanings. The court is an open yard and the temple is the entire precincts of a sacred place; bounds of jurisdiction, or the whole territory comprehended within the limits of authority. In Revelation 11:8 we have the terms spiritual Sodom and Egypt and throughout all of Revelation we see the terms Great City and refer to Babylon until Revelation 21:10 than it is JerUSAlem.
