How is America now different from any other nation? We pretend to be a Christian nation while killing the innocent unborn, worshipping the created instead of the Creator. Our turning away from God as a society is almost complete and just like in Europe, believers are the minority. Those who are running our government are a reflection of the people who voted for them. Yes, President Trump and Vice-President Pence are very Israel and Christian friendly but we see the work of evil forging ahead. How did America become a nation that allows children to be taught that chopping the head off of people in the nation they migrated to is acceptable? How did America become a nation that allows those who support violence be put in a place of honor? How did those who hate America, Israel, Christians, and anyone who does not bow to their ideals become a strong power in this country? The answer is not what you would expect.
In the book of Judges we have a clear picture of what happens to every nation every time they turn from God and worship idols. The nation is Israel but God does not tolerate idol worship from any nation. Over and over in the book of Judges we find Israel prospering and turning from God to worship other gods. God sends them into captivity, they finally cry out to God for mercy, He delivers them and the process starts all over.
Judges 2:10 KJV And also all that generation were gathered unto their fathers: and there arose another generation after them, which knew not the Lord, nor yet the works which he had done for Israel. 11 And the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the Lord, and served Baalim: 12 And they forsook the Lord God of their fathers, which brought them out of the land of Egypt, and followed other gods, of the gods of the people that were round about them, and bowed themselves unto them, and provoked the Lord to anger. 13 And they forsook the Lord, and served Baal and Ashtaroth. 14 And the anger of the Lord was hot against Israel, and he delivered them into the hands of spoilers that spoiled them, and he sold them into the hands of their enemies round about, so that they could not any longer stand before their enemies. 15 Whithersoever they went out, the hand of the Lord was against them for evil, as the Lord had said, and as the Lord had sworn unto them: and they were greatly distressed.
This is how history repeats itself. The people forget God, their life is devoted to themselves, and they do not believe they will ever be held accountable. In terms of today, preachers and teachers do not tell the people the word of God. They tell people they are god and God is at their beck and call. The people do not tell others salvation is needed in order to escape eternal hell and the cross of Christ is the only way to receive what they need because they are chasing the gospel of wealth, 2 Timothy 3:1-5.Â Jesus as Lord and Savior is a need not a want. When this happens we find society go into the pit of evil and darkness, Romans 1:18-32. The difference today is, Israel became a nation in one day and the Jewish people are going back to their homeland, Isaiah 66:8-10. Russian, Iran, Turkey, and other nations are looking to wipe Israel into non-existence and get rid of the Jewish people, Ezekiel 38-39.
The day of the Lord is ever closer and closer but the people are eating, drinking, and marrying as if nothing is going on:
Matthew 24:37 KJV But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, 39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
How about you, are you looking for Christ Jesus or will His appearance be a complete surprise?
