On February 16, 2019, God put in my mind a passage found in Jeremiah. While this particular portion of prophecy was specifically given to Israel/Judah, history, especially in today’s time, is rhyming with the past. This is what God is warning the citizens of the United States.
The Lord’s Word to Jeremiah:
And the word of the Lord came to me the second time, saying, “What do you see?”
And I said, “I see a boiling pot, and it is facing away from the north.”
Then the Lord said to me:
“Out of the north calamity shall break forth
On all the inhabitants of the land.
For behold, I am calling
All the families of the kingdoms of the north,” says the Lord;
“They shall come and each one set his throne
At the entrance of the gates of Jerusalem,
Against all its walls all around,
And against all the cities of Judah.
I will utter My judgments
Against them concerning all their wickedness,
Because they have forsaken Me,
Burned incense to other gods,
And worshiped the works of their own hands.~Jeremiah 1:13-16 NKJV
Throughout the Bible, we see themes that seem to repeat. Mark Twain famously said, “History doesn’t repeat itself but it often rhymes.” It is in the idea of rhyming that God brought this passage to me and it pertains to what is happening in this country as of the writing of this post.
In a nutshell, God is holding back multiple enemies from within and outside of our borders from bringing about their plans, which is God’s wrath upon our country.
It takes times for enemies to gather in strength, to set up camps, and to coordinate. In the passage above, the “kings” didn’t do this overnight and the entire land of Israel/Judah had many, many years to change, but they chose the path of God’s Wrath brought about through the enemies of His chosen people.
This is what’s happening today, and the consiquences will happen if we continue on our present trajectory.
We indulge and support wickedness.
We have, through our personal actions/choices, and through our elected leaders, have forsaken God.
We have paid homage to other gods.
We worship our accomplishments.
We, as a people and our leaders, have, and are checking off these things and doing so with gleeful succession, beating our collective chests with pride, but God will not be mocked and the enemies are at the gate. We have enemies outside of our boarders that are in wait. We have enemies within our government and one of our parties has been split into two factions (the Socialists, the Democrats). We have growing policy measures that are meant to control our actions on various social media platforms. We have bills awaiting approval that will further control our lives. All of these things are being held back for another few years. While I personally have issues with our current President in certain areas, I do believe that he is the leader we need, a leader put there by God Himself (Daniel 4:17) and the leader that is holding a lot of this stuff back by the Will of God. There is great rebellion against him and others in authority, and they are showing their colors because they are actually rebelling against God (Romans 13:1-2).
This is what God has given me to give to you. Do with it what you will.
