END OF USA--God's Condemnation of Israel's Dying Culture Portrays Our Dying Culture & Moral Collapse
Video from DTBM
"Doesn’t that sound like the current moral condition of the United States of America? The similarity is eerie, but actually, every one of those five questions is behind what God Almighty Himself is asking to His Chosen People of Promise, the nation of Israel. The primary targets of these questions were the people that God Himself confronts in Isaiah 1-5. As you sit with Isaiah open before you, may I ask a quick question? Why would we: in the New Testament Era, the Church Age, the time of Grace, turn back to the Old Testament, and start there as we study an important Biblical topic? Is there authority for our lives in the Old Testament? Because Jesus and the Apostles used the OT, and this BOOK MORE than any other." from video introduction.
The Book of Isaiah reveals many of God's plans and thoughts. As moderns we must look closely at what God says about a culture and its decline. There is a point when God will not let a nation and its culture continue. Have we as a nation reached that point?
God describes a dying culture in Isaiah 1:6 From the sole of the foot even to the head,
there is no soundness in it, but bruises and sores and raw wounds; they are not pressed out or bound up or softened with oil.
Isaiah 5: 8 gives nine ways that God describes a dying culture: greed/materialism, addictions, distracted by entertainment, ignorant of God's word, blatantly sin, moral relativism(lies) call good evil and evil good, pride and arrogance, Bad heroes, injustice. In the OT Isaiah is about salvation and how God even though he destroyed Israel he still saved them.
Think about America today we are greedy and materialistic, our people are addicted to drugs, alcohol, pornography etc., we are distracted not only by entertainment but social media and the news, we as Christians many are ignorant of God's word, as a people we blatantly sin and don't care who knows it, we call good evil and evil good, we are prideful and arrogant, we have morally bankrupt heroes and we have much injustice.
When we abandon God he abandons us.
America is dying and most people, most Christians are oblivious to this fact. Many have decided that men, politicians can save us.
God wants to reach out to us. Will you be the salt and light or remain within and participate in the sinful culture before us?
