Book of Isaiah. To be honest I am blown away at the similarities mentioned about Israel and then looking at modern day America. I do believe that when people or nations turn their backs on God, the laws of nature & God's Law, comes into play. I believe that God has a “template to judge a nation” with which He uses.
I am one who also firmly believes that our nation was brought about by divine providence. King James, the very same king who put his name to the only Authorized Version of the bible, also sent people to "the new world" to spread the Gospel and claim the land for God in the name of His Son, Jesus Christ. This is the basic tenant of the James Town Charter claiming America for His Glory. We are not God's chosen people and in no way do we replace Israel, but I believe we have a special place in God's plan and because we have remained a Christian nation up until about 40 years ago, God has blessed us immensely.
As a nation we have made some really bad mistakes and choices, but we have "repented" in our past and came out on the other side stronger and corrected our failures and mistakes. At the base of the Statue of Liberty it states, "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free" We are a nation built upon the principles of God and His Word. But somewhere on this journey, our great republic strayed and instead of being good, we have chosen the path of evil.
I look around at what is taking place here in the US as well as globally and I see man working towards his own demise through the pleasures of the world and of the flesh. Instead of exporting the Gospel, we export pornography. Instead of saving the innocent, we kill millions of our children through abortion. Instead of standing for God, we work to eradicate His existence from our lives, our monuments and our schools. Instead of the holy matrimony between husband and wife we have sodomites, pedophiles, hedonism, practitioners of bestiality, all becoming the norm. Instead of caring for our fellow man, we have allowed greed and selfishness to replace compassion. The natural affection of man is gone. Brutality is its replacement. Corporate greed and the serving of mammon today has become a norm.
But that is not all. It seems that which gender one is having sex with is now more important in the halls of congress than the wholesomeness and protecting the family unit. We care more for this world and justify its shallow perspectives more than the things of God and His 'eternal' perspective. Do you know that there is an epidemic of teachers accused or convicted of having sex with their students, hundreds of them, mostly female? Has this come to the forefront of national and international news in recent years? No. Isaiah 5:20 says, "Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Isaiah 5:23, says, "Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him."
I read many articles where so many of these child predators are just given a slap on the wrist. Where liberal judges reward the evils and yet lock up those who are righteous. A prime example of this is the two border guard agents who spent time in jail for doing their job and yet a drug smuggler is on the loose coming and going in and out of our country.
Sins of the flesh are being taken to a new high. At a past Sundance Film Festival not only did we have a movie where the main highlight was the raping of a 12 year old girl, which was done all in the name of “ART.” But get this… There was also a film called “Zoo,” the primarily focus of the film was sex with animals. Leviticus 18:23 says, "Neither shalt thou lie with any beast to defile thyself therewith: neither shall any woman stand before a beast to lie down thereto: it is confusion."
But that is not all. More and more television shows are portraying homosexuality in a very positive light. Showtime was touting their hot show “ The “L” Word” It is a show that glorifies and is about life as a lesbian. Romans 1:26 says, "For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature."
And now, look at us as a nation...We have allowed a POTUS that is an usurper, vile, proud, and taunts his own homosexuality. We've viewed the photos and stories of his drug use, tolerated his lack of "experience" and have become "fearful" of standing on our Oath to the Constitution, for what? Our own greed and selfishness? Towing the "party" line? Believing in "tolerance" to accept what is vile before God's eyes?
Does "Babylon has fallen" ring a bell? If it hasn't, then YOU are also the problem. Using words like Barack Obama has done in this link, as the "headline" in today's news.....it is past time to humble thy selves as a nation. The destruction hasn't even reached it's peak....hold on because it's going to be a destructive, deadly ride.
