The Soon Coming Judgment Of God Upon America and How To Escape It                 148
through the countries: according to their way and according to their doings I
judged them. (Ezekiel 36:17-19)
The people of the United States have also forgot the second part of God’s promise. He
promised to judge us if we forsook him and his commandments. Jesus stated in a parable that
“for unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required” (Luke 12:48). In deed, the
U.S. has been blessed very abundantly with both material blessing and a spiritual heritage, which
is based on the truth of God’s word. Because of God’s blessing on this nation he requires much
of it. Jesus also stated that the servant “which knew his lord’s will, and prepared not himself,
neither did according to his will, shall be beaten” (Luke 12:47). As a nation, the U.S. has walked
away from the truth of God’s word and the spiritual heritage we inherited; we have not done the
Lord’s will. What God has promised for a nation such as ours is judgment. Psalms 9:17 states:
The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.
(Psalms 9:17)
In Romans the Apostle Paul tells us that those Jews who rejected Jesus as Christ are like
branches broken off the olive tree and gentiles believers are like wild branches grafted in. He
also warns that “if God spared not the natural branches,” (the natural Jew who denied Christ)
“take heed lest he also spare not thee” (gentile believers who turn their back on the truth).
Let us repent of our wickedness and be like David who wrote: “I will set no wicked thing
before mine eyes: I hate the work of them that turn aside; it shall not cleave to me.” (Ps 101:3)
While the morals of our nation are crashing down around us, let us be different. Let us follow the
inspired words of the Apostle Paul:
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are
honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things
are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if
there be any praise, think on these things. Those things, which ye have both
learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall
be with you. (Philippians 4:8-9)
