There was a time that another group of people was in a similar situation. The Book of Isaiah in the Bible tells us that story. It is eerily similar to what The USA is going through right now. The people had turned their hearts against God. As a matter of fact, The Lord has laid this on my heart. I’m not claiming to be a prophet; however, I do believe that God speaks to us through His Word. Therefore, I took the liberty to go through Isaiah and update it to give us a more direct message.
I am not rewriting the Bible or anything like that. I just wanted us to get a more straightforward message. The Old Testament is in the Bible to teach us. Unlike some modern preachers and teachers, it is just as relevant today as it ever was. Feel free to compare my words with those in your Bible, and you will understand.
Here is part nine:
Isaiah 9:8-21 CSB
The Lord sent a message against the government; it came against the USA. All the people will know it. They will say with pride and arrogance, “The bricks have fallen, but we will rebuild with cut stones; the sycamores have been cut down, but we will replace them with cedars.” The LORD has raised up America’s adversaries against her and stirred up her enemies. Russia from the east and China from the west have consumed America with open mouths. In all this, his anger has not turned away, and his hand is still raised to strike. The people did not turn to him who struck them; they did not seek the LORD of Armies. So the LORD cut off America’s head and tail, palm branch and reed in a single day. The head is the president, the honored one; the tail is the congress, the one teaching lies. The leaders of the people mislead them, and those they mislead are swallowed up. Therefore, the Lord does not rejoice over America’s young men and has no compassion on its fatherless and widows, for everyone is a godless evildoer, and every mouth speaks folly. In all this, his anger has not turned away, and his hand is still raised to strike. For wickedness burns like a fire that consumes thorns and briers and kindles the forest thickets so that they go up in a column of smoke. The land is scorched by the wrath of the LORD of Armies, and the people are like fuel for the fire. No one has compassion on his brother. They carve meat on the right, but they are still hungry; they have eaten on the left, but they are still not satisfied. Each one eats the flesh of his arm. New York eats California, and California, New York; together, both are against the USA. In all this, his anger has not turned away, and his hand is still raised to strike.
