The Soon Coming Judgment Of God Upon America and How To Escape It                 74
God repeatedly judged Israel because of their wickedness and they repented but
repentance was never long lasting. God's judgments upon Israel began long before David was
King. The judgments continued until God destroyed the nation. The destruction of Jerusalem was
in the year 70 A.D. and occurred as a result of the majority of the Jewish people having rejected
Jesus Christ. Many of the Jews were killed in the destruction at the hands of the Romans.
Approximately 40 years before the destruction, Jesus had declared to his fellow Jews, “ The
kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.”
(Matthew 21:43) The United States is the fulfillment of Jesus' prophecy; the U.S. has taken the
Gospel of Jesus Christ to the world.
God's Faithful Persecuted
God has always had faithful followers. For hundreds of years during the dark ages God
had many faithful followers. Hundreds of thousands, even millions of God's faithful died for
their faith. There were faithful kings and rulers who protected God's faithful but kings come and
go. What God wanted and didn't have was a nation who fulfilled his great commission. There
was almost constant famine, war and pestilence. God's people struggled to survive and often had
to flee from one nation to another to avoid persecution and death. God's faithful needed a place
of refuge in order to fulfill his great commission. They not only needed a place of safety but
somewhere where they could prosper so that they would have the means to fulfill the great
The great commission is contained in Jesus’ last instructions to his disciples before he left
the earth:
Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the
Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all
things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even
unto the end of the world. Amen. (Matthew 28:19-20)
God needed a nation that would facilitate the work of his faithful followers to carry out
this great commission. God established America for this purpose. The God of heaven guided
Christopher Columbus in the discovery of America; he directed the Puritans and Pilgrims to
settle in America; and he guided the founding fathers in seeking independence. The United
States is the only nation that was founded as a Christian nation. Our Constitution, Bill of Rights,
laws and form of government (although not perfect) originally reflected the truths found in God's
holy word, the Bible.
Because Americans were faithful to him he blessed America and prospered it. The
prosperity of America helped to fund the great commission. The psalmist writes: “Blessed is the
nation whose God is the LORD; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance.”
(Psalm 33:12) America has been abundantly blessed by God.
