Many times you and I have heard it said, “History repeats itself,” have we not? Over and over again, nations of the world have accomplished their foolish goals of conquering, at least temporarily, other nations. Their goals of conquest are placed into effect, but ultimately, they fail to establish their goals of ‘world conquest.’ At this very moment, socialism seems to be getting an upper hand in America, but we shall soon see the utter stupidity of their seemingly successful actions.
Do these verses from Isaiah 10:13-14 sound familiar? “For he said: I have done this by my own strength and wisdom, for I am clever. I abolished the borders of nations and plundered their treasures; like a mighty warrior, I subjugated the inhabitants. My hand has reached out, as if into a nest, to seize the wealth of the nations. Like one gathering abandoned eggs, I gathered the whole earth. No wing fluttered; no beak opened or chirped.”
Stop for just a moment and look around our Nation. What is taking place at this moment in time?
- Our borders are under attack
- ‘Cancel Culture’ tactics are in full swing
- Our system of laws are being assailed
- Tax rates are soaring out of control
- National debt is rising
- Poverty and joblessness is increasing
- Law and order are diminishing
- The Word of God is being ignored
Historically, all of these things have taken place around the world over and over again. The last major event in world history, on a world-class scale was Nazism during the 1940’s. Before that, the Bolshevik Revolution shook Russia. In modern history, the United States has been the only Nation in the world where seemingly sensible law and order in society seemed to be working, but why? The answer lies in the Constitution of the United States because of the Judeo-Christian foundation that undergirds it. God has been upheld as the cause of everything accomplished in this great nation until recently. The foundation seems to be crumbling.
Now read further in the account found in Isaiah 10:15-20, “Does an ax exalt itself above the one who chops with it? Does a saw magnify itself above the one who saws with it? It would be like a staff waving the one who lifts it! It would be like a rod lifting a man who isn’t wood! Therefore the Lord Godwill inflict an emaciating disease on the well-fed of Assyria, and He will kindle a burning fire under its glory. Israel’s Light will become a fire, and its Holy One, a flame. In one day it will burn up Assyria’s thorns and thistles. He will completely destroy the glory of its forests and orchard as a sickness consumes a person. The remaining trees of its forest will be so few in number that a child could count them.On that day the remnant of Israel and the survivors of the house of Jacob will no longer depend on the one who struck them, but they will faithfully depend on the Lord, the Holy One of Israel.”
Everything; everything around us seems to be coming apart. From the moment that the present Administration entered the White House and the Democrats gained almost full control of the American government, our culture has begun to crumble. And we are witnessing the absolute carnage of civility where what was up is now down, in is out, male is female, off is now on, and the list continues. Social standards are no longer existent and our world is going bonkers. However what we, who are Believers and Followers of Jesus Christ, do know is that God is in control. There is a reason, He has a purpose in all that is taking place. Soon there will be a reversal to the insanity we are observing.
“On that day the remnant of Israel and the survivors of the house of Jacob will no longer depend on the one who struck them, but they will faithfully depend on the Lord, the Holy One of Israel.” No, the U.S.A. is NOT Israel. We are America and our Nation is nowhere to be seen in the Word of God. But, the point is that what we are watching right now is a very similar thing that happened to the People of God as they were gathered and taken from their land to Babylon, but they were released after a time. And throughout history there have been similar occurrences around the world. God has allowed seemingly horrible, very terrible events to occur; the Holocaust brought on by Germany. And those who are causing our havoc in America right now tell us that the Holocaust did not happen. Sadly, many believe this lie.
God is in control now just as he was while German Nazis were in their craziness. He will soon end this madness and His Holy Spirit will move across this place with astonishing results. There will be an incredible move of God and a Spiritual Awakening will take place with such power very many will come to salvation by grace through faith in Jesus Jesus Christ. His justice and righteousness will once again reign because His judgment upon evil will prevail.
Why? Jesus is Lord!!
