Following the footprints of Israel

God had sent a message; an unpopular message that the nation was in sin.
Though some believed the message, others ignored the warnings and sought to rid themselves of the message giver.
God’s message was written on a scroll.
The king sent Jehudi to get the scroll. Jehudi brought it from Elishama’s room and read it to the king as all his officials stood by. It was late autumn, and the king was in a winterized part of the palace, sitting in front of a fire to keep warm. Whenever Jehudi finished reading three or four columns, the king took his knife and cut off that section of the scroll. He then threw it into the fire, section by section, until the whole scroll was burned up. Neither the king nor his officials showed any signs of fear or repentance at what they heard. Even when Elnathan, Delaiah, and Gemariah begged the king not to burn the scroll, he wouldn’t listen. Jer 36:21-25 NLT
History repeats itself because we never learn it the first time!
America is so much like Israel; a land of milk and honey and of great of opportunity; a land of freedom and dedication to God; and a land that has sinned and not repented.
The message of God is no longer popular.
There is no fear or respect of God but we have blasphemed and called what is good as evil, and that which is evil we have called good.
The king destroyed the word of God, slice by slice and little by little.
This is the same way it has been destroyed in America.
Remove it from school, remove it from business, remove it from corporate, and remove it from government.
Accept immorality as normal and challenge anyone that would say otherwise.
Be tolerant of other religions and beliefs and mix them with your own.
This is the path Israel went down and we are following in their footprints.
God’s message to Israel may very well be the same message to us; And the LORD has sent to you all His servants the prophets, rising early and sending them, but you have not listened nor inclined your ear to hear. They said, ‘Repent now everyone of his evil way and his evil doings, and dwell in the land that the LORD has given to you and your fathers forever and ever. Do not go after other gods to serve them and worship them, and do not provoke Me to anger with the works of your hands; and I will not harm you.’ Yet you have not listened to Me,” says the LORD, “that you might provoke Me to anger with the works of your hands to your own hurt. Jer 25:4-7
Will we listen or will our own “Babylon” come against us?
