As a Christian, I have been appalled at the disregard for the biblical truth of gender and protecting innocent lives of babies which President Biden does not uphold.
However, there is one thing that I completely agree with the President about: we are in a battle for the heart and soul of our nation. Just the other day, in a discussion I commented that the reason why our country is in turmoil is because it has rejected the Gospel. The response was several laughs. If we have reached a point as a nation that recognizing God’s discipline and removal of His blessing is a laughing matter rather than as a dangerous place to be we are indeed in a sorry state.
We certainly are in a battle as a nation for the heart and soul of our people. Ultimately it is not the Donkey or the Elephant that will save us. It is the Lamb alone. His Word must be honored and obeyed. We currently embrace homosexual marriage, gender choice and murder children in the womb. The Lord has been merciful toward us but He will not do so forever. Every nation in history that has turned to such atrocities has fallen. As much as we love this nation, Americans, we must love Christ and His Word more. We certainly need to be united – in conformity to Jesus Christ. If we unite around anything else, it will fall just like the Tower of Babel.
We will either humble ourselves or be humbled.#repost
For the remainder of this essay I simply will share from Jeremiah:
“I will utter My judgments Against them concerning all their wickedness, Because they have forsaken Me, Burned incense to other gods, And worshiped the works of their own hands.”
Jeremiah 1:16 NKJV
“Has a nation changed its gods, Which are not gods? But My people have changed their Glory For what does not profit. Be astonished, O heavens, at this, And be horribly afraid; Be very desolate,” says the LORD. “For My people have committed two evils: They have forsaken Me, the fountain of living waters, And hewn themselves cisterns—broken cisterns that can hold no water.
….Your own wickedness will correct you, And your backslidings will rebuke you. Know therefore and see that it is an evil and bitter thing That you have forsaken the LORD your God, And the fear of Me is not in you,” Says the Lord GOD of hosts.”
Jeremiah 2:11-13, 19 NKJV
“Indeed you will go forth from him With your hands on your head; For the LORD has rejected your trusted allies, And you will not prosper by them.”
Jeremiah 2:37 NKJV
““Return, you backsliding children, And I will heal your backslidings.” “Indeed we do come to You, For You are the LORD our God.”
Jeremiah 3:22 NKJV
“For thus says the LORD to the men of Judah and Jerusalem: “Break up your fallow ground, And do not sow among thorns. Circumcise yourselves to the LORD, And take away the foreskins of your hearts, You men of Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem, Lest My fury come forth like fire, And burn so that no one can quench it, Because of the evil of your doings.””
Jeremiah 4:3-4 NKJV
““For My people are foolish, They have not known Me. They are silly children, And they have no understanding. They are wise to do evil, But to do good they have no knowledge.””
Jeremiah 4:22 NKJV
“They were like well-fed lusty stallions; Every one neighed after his neighbor’s wife. Shall I not punish them for these things? ” says the LORD. “And shall I not avenge Myself on such a nation as this?”
Jeremiah 5:8-9 NKJV
“But this people has a defiant and rebellious heart; They have revolted and departed.”
Jeremiah 5:23 NKJV
“Your iniquities have turned these things away, And your sins have withheld good from you.”
Jeremiah 5:25 NKJV
“Shall I not punish them for these things? ’ says the LORD. ‘Shall I not avenge Myself on such a nation as this?’ “An astonishing and horrible thing Has been committed in the land: The prophets prophesy falsely, And the priests rule by their own power; And My people love to have it so. But what will you do in the end?”
Jeremiah 5:29-31 NKJV
“As a fountain wells up with water, So she wells up with her wickedness. Violence and plundering are heard in her. Before Me continually are grief and wounds. Be instructed, O Jerusalem, Lest My soul depart from you; Lest I make you desolate, A land not inhabited.””
Jeremiah 6:7-8 NKJV
“They have also healed the hurt of My people slightly, Saying, ‘Peace, peace!’ When there is no peace.”
Jeremiah 6:14 NKJV
“Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? No! They were not at all ashamed; Nor did they know how to blush. Therefore they shall fall among those who fall; At the time I punish them, They shall be cast down,” says the LORD. Thus says the LORD: “Stand in the ways and see, And ask for the old paths, where the good way is, And walk in it; Then you will find rest for your souls. But they said, ‘We will not walk in it. ’”
Jeremiah 6:15-16 NKJV
More highlights from Jeremiah will Lord willing be added as I am re-reading through this book of the Bible.
