When the king heard what was written in the Law, he tore his clothes in despair. – 2 Chronicles 34:19
When the Law of Moses was found in the temple and read to young king Josiah, he tore his clothes in humility and repentance at the atrocities Israel and Judah had committed against God’s word. Then word was sent to the king that the judgment of God stated in the Law of Moses would not be brought upon Judah during his lifetime because of his repentance of the nations’ sins and took action to restore fellowship between the people and God.
So we here about the coming judgment of God on America from several of God’s prophets (including this one), but the truth is that our leadership doesn’t want to do what Josiah did, humble themselves under the mighty hand of God repent of the nation’s sins. We could see the hand of God’s judgment stayed from coming to us during our near future, but will America’s leaders do what Josiah did? The Lord has already told me that answer is, “No!” If President Obama were to do the following, our nation would be spared for a short while longer.
- Recognize the judgment of God stated in his word against any nation that turns from God. (v. 19)
- Repent of the sins committed by this nation as a people. (v. 19)
- Inquire of Jehovah the one, true God (not any other god) about the judgment pronounced against this nation. (v. 21)
- Understand why God’s judgment is coming to the USA (v. 21)
- Publicly state that we as a nation have turned away from God’s Word. (v. 21)
- Hear the word of the LORD and the judgment coming to the USA. (vv. 24-25)
- Establish a covenant with God, the leadership, and the people of the USA to return to the LORD and obey his word. (vv. 31-32)
- Require that the people get rid of all that violates God’s standard and worship the LORD. (v. 33)
However, President Obama will not answer this call or heed the warnings sent by God because he is too much like Pharaoh of Moses’ day and thinks he is a god. He has allowed his popularity and position harden his heart and swell the pride within him. He will not let God’s people go in a sense and wants to enslave this nation to the ways of Baal (Allah, yes I said it!), his god!
Thus here are the words of our God Jehovah against America, “This is what the Lord says: ‘I am going to bring disaster on this city [Washington, DC] and its people. All the curses written in the [law of God] that was read to the [President of America]will come true. For my people have abandoned me and offered sacrifices to pagan gods, and I am very angry with them for everything they have done. My anger will be poured out on this place, and it will not be quenched.’”
However, if Obama were to repent on behalf of this nation and begin to turn back to the LORD, we could hear these words instead, “You were sorry and humbled yourself before God when you heard his words against this city and its people. You humbled yourself and tore your clothing in despair and wept before me in repentance. And I have indeed heard you, says the Lord. So I will not send the promised disaster until after you have died and been buried in peace. You yourself will not see the disaster I am going to bring on this city and its people.” Sad part is that Obama WILL NOT yield to the LORD God Almighty!
Father, thank you for your grace and mercy that you have shown to your people every day. We deserve nothing but your judgment, but each day that passes without it being unleashed on us is true mercy. I pray for our leadership and ask you to guide them as much as they will listen to your word. You have shown me already that they will reject the word of the LORD because they have determined to do their will instead of your will. Spare those of us who are your children and those yet to be adopted into the family. I love you! Your will alone be done! In Jesus’ name, Amen.
