Are We Different Than Other Nations?
Isaiah 10:11, "Shall I not, as I have done unto Samaria and her idols, so do to Jerusalem and her idols?"
It was tragic that the children of Israel, in the city of Jerusalem, would set up graven images. Did the heathen of the world have more idols than the people of Jerusalem? That we do not know. However, it is clear God would deal with His children in the same manner as the heathen.
You see it is foolish for Christians to emulate the people of the world in any respect, including idolatry. Christians should continue in the paths that God has established for them. When God brings his people into trouble, it is to bring sin to their remembrance, and to humble them, and to awaken them to a sense of their duty to God.
God had brought the Assyrians against Israel to exterminate idolatry, and any other sins among the people.
Will this country be treated any differently than others who fall into sin? No, not at all!!! We must realize we are not exempted from God's hand of judgment. Just as He has dealt with others He will also deal with us. America needs to wake up before it is too late.
Our churches need to wake up before it is too late. Christians need to wake up before it is too late.
Have a good day!
