The United States is in a Judges Three State of Mind
The key to the rescue of Israel from its enemies was “and when the children of Israel cried unto the LORD”.
I guess that the children of Israel would be for the most part the church.
The un churched also knows how to cry out the Lord, though.
I will substitute Israel for the USA in the following verses.
The greatest lesson regarding history is that humanity never learns from it.
So what it was in Biblical days is still today.
This is why evolution doesn’t work.
Man’s sinful nature has not evolved into something better .
Humanity’s only Charles Darwin, if there is to be one, is Jesus Christ.
Judge 3: 7 And the children of USA did evil in the sight of the LORD, and forgot the LORD their God, and served the Baalim and the Asherahs.
8 Therefore the anger of the LORD was hot against the USA, and He sold them into the hand of Chushanrishathaim, king of Mesopotamia; and the children of the USA served Chushanrishathaim eight years.
9 And when the children of the USA cried unto the LORD, the LORD raised up a deliverer to the children of the USA who delivered them, even Othniel the son of Kenaz, Caleb’s younger brother.
10 And the Spirit of the LORD came upon him, and he judged the USA and went out to war; and the LORD delivered Chushanrishathaim, king of Mesopotamia, into his hand. And his hand prevailed against Chushanrishathaim;
11 and the USA had rest forty years, and Othniel the son of Kenaz died.
12 And the children of the USA did evil again in the sight of the LORD; and the LORD strengthened Eglon the king of Moab against the USA, because they had done evil in the sight of the LORD.
13 And he gathered unto him the children of Ammon and Amalek, and went and smote the USA, and possessed the city of palm trees.
14 So the children of the USA served Eglon the king of Moab eighteen years.
15 But when the children of the USA cried unto the LORD, the LORD raised them up a deliverer, Ehud the son of Gera, a Benjamite, a man lefthanded; and by him the children of the USA l sent a present unto Eglon the king of Moab.
I am going to phone my good friend Billy Joel and ask him to re word his once famous song, and make it into a Word of the Lord for this country.
