Do not let Hezekiah persuade you to trust in the Lord when he says, ‘The Lord will surely deliver us; this city will not be given into the hand of the king of Assyria.’ Do not listen to Hezekiah. This is what the king of Assyria says: Make peace with me and come out to me. Then each of you will eat fruit from your own vine and fig tree and drink water from your own cistern, until I come and take you to a land like your own—a land of grain and new wine, a land of bread and vineyards. – Isaiah 36:15-17
Assyrian soldiers had marched on Jerusalem and brought an envoy to deliver a message from the Assyrian king to King Hezekiah of the Jews. The message was for the people of Judah to trust in the “hope and change” of the Assyrian king rather than the words of Hezekiah, which were for the people to trust in the LORD to deliver them from their enemy. The Assyrians had exiled Samaria many decades before and were now knocking on Judah’s door, but the people chose to trust YHWH rather than men to save them.
I am not afraid or intimidated by the man in the suit at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, D.C. He promised our people hope and change and did deliver on his message and promises. He dashed the hope of the people and radically changed the way our nation operates and functions. People of the USA trusted in the false messiah that is Barack Hussein Obama. They sought his charm and elegant words of promises he could neither deliver nor guarantee. He sounded much as did the Assyrian envoy before the people of Judah. “Don’t trust in the LORD nor listen to the words of the children of God,” he may as well have said.
We have no godly leadership that will take a stand for Yeshua HaMaschiach (Jesus Christ – the Messiah) in the USA as far as making a public stand and proclaiming that we will not bow the knee to man or to the ways of Lucifer. No, we have men and women who hide behind their legislative robes of power and march goose steppingly along with their earthly master. Even those professing their allegiance to Christ in the Congress are to weak and timid to stand and make bold proclamations of national repentance and lead our people back to the God of our forefathers! They’d rather hang on to their power, position, might, and money.
To those who say they are doing what they can to bring our nation back to YHWH, I say, “WHERE ARE YOU? WHY DO WE NOT HEAR YOUR VOICES CRYING OUT LIKE ONE IN THE WILDERNESS SAYING, ‘PREPARE THE WAY OF THE LORD’ OR ‘PUT ON SACKCLOTH AND ASHES TO MOURN AND REPENT OF OUR SINS?'” You won’t. There are none, not one, willing to make a stand even to the point of losing their elected position. Their god of government means more to them than taking and making a stand to call our nation back to repentance! Too many are foregoing complete trust in the LORD GOD ALMIGHTY and would rather trust the government to make our lives to be full of “peace and safety,” which the Scriptures make explicitly clear,
While people are saying, “Peace and safety,” destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.
DO NOT TRUST THE WORDS OF ANY POLITICIAN TO SAVE YOU OR MAKE YOUR LIVE BETTER! THERE IS ONLY ONE NAME GIVEN UNDER HEAVEN BY WHICH MANKIND MUST BE SAVED – JESUS!!!!!!!
Father, thank you for all that you’ve done for us. You gave us a wonderful land to live in and grow and have families. You gave us natural resources beyond abundance! You gave us your blessing and favor among the nations for centuries. However, we have turned our back on you as a nation. We’ve murder the innocent, exchanged the truth for a lie, and worshiped the created rather than the Creator, YOU! Forgive us for these horrible atrocities conducted in the name of selfishness and greed and pride. Our leaders may not cry out to you to stay judgment on this nation for a while longer, but your people who are called by your name are turning from their wicked ways and praying to YOU that you will forgive our sins as a nation and heal our land. May your will be done, not ours. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
