It seems as if most Christians today have little regard for the Old Testament. We seldom hear sermons from it and seldom study an entire book. I believe we (Americans) are missing so much. The OT is in the Bible so that we can learn about the history of Israel and, hopefully, learn from their mistakes. I believe that Israel in the OT is representative of the USA today. There are so many similarities that it is no doubt that this the case.
The Israelites were given the promised land. It was a land rich with everything. They had to take it away from those that were already inhabiting it. Those inhabitants did not worship the true God. They worshipped idols and gods of the earth. These people had to be displaced.
The Puritans were looking for a place rich with everything and where they could worship according to their beliefs without persecution. They found that land in America. However, America was also inhabited by people that did not worship the true God. They worshipped idols and earthly gods. These people, too, had to be displaced.
The Israelites were blessed people. As long as they obeyed God, they didn’t have to worry about anything. They were protected from other peoples and destruction from other sources. Unfortunately, by reading the OT, we learn that they continually turned their backs on God. He would send plagues and prophets to get their attention. Finally, when He had enough, the Israelites were defeated and subjected to oppression. I encourage you to read Isaiah, Jeremiah, Lamentations, Hosea, Malachi, and other books in the OT and see what happened to the Israelites.
Now, compare the Israelites to us. There is no doubt the USA was a blessed country. It was founded on Christian principles. George Washington and the first Congress dedicated our Country to God. They all, every one of them, got on their knees and prayed immediately after his inauguration at St Paul’s Chapel in NYC.
Look at the history of our Country. We most certainly mirror the ancient Israelites. Has God finally had enough of our rebellion? Has He finally had enough of the slaughter of millions and millions of unborn and newborn babies? Has He finally had enough of the mockery of His Word? Is He tired of the morally bankrupt ruling our Country? The answer is, I don’t know. However, what I do know is that the only chance we have is told to us in 2 Chronicles 7:13-14 CSB:
If I shut the sky so there is no rain, or if I command the grasshopper to consume the land, or if I send pestilence on my people,  and my people, who bear my name, humble themselves, pray and seek my face, and turn from their evil ways, then I will hear from heaven, forgive their sin, and heal their land.
The time is now or never for the USA. The Democrat Party is entirely morally bankrupt and corrupt in every aspect. They are the ones that supported slavery, racial discrimination, racial segregation, and welfare that has destroyed personal responsibility, and the pursuit of happiness for a new dependant class of people who rely on the government for support. If they are elected to the majority of Congress and also the presidency, our Country is doomed. God will allow the USA to fall into ruins, just like Israel did.
My God have mercy on us all.
2 thoughts on “Has God Had Enough?”
You say you are a born again Christian. So what are you doing about it? God has the perfect plan way before He created the Heavens and Earth and everything in it except sin. It’s not whether God has had enough, rather have we had enough? God wants us to Repent of our sins daily and worship God with all our hearts, soul, mind and strength and serve him only. We should pray for those who persecute us and [b]less those [who] hate us. Have you had something happen to you and asked someone like a friend if what happened to you would be ok and you would live? Many people I know have. What was the outcome? Read 2nd Kings 1:1-17 and see what happened to a king. We should learn from this.
I’m not sure I understand what you’re saying. I was comparing the USA to Israel (in the OT). God allowed the Israelites to stray from His commands up to a certain point. Then, when He had enough, He punished them much in the same way things are happening in our Country today.
