August 10, 2019: SOAP #3537: Jeremiah 5-6; John 12

Scripture:  Jeremiah (NIV) 5:11 The house of Israel andthe house of Judah have been utterly unfaithful to me,” declares the LORD.12 They have lied about the LORD; they said, “He will do nothing! No harmwill come to us; we will never see sword or famine.
15 O house of Israel,” declares the LORD, “I am bringing a distantnation against you "  17 They will devour your harvests and food,devour your sons and daughters; they will devour your flocks and herds, devouryour vines and fig trees.

Observation:  The USA is not Israel, so prophetic words toIsrael cannot be specifically assigned to the USA.  However, for years we have claimed the God ofIsrael as our God.  Clearly our nationwould not exist without His intervention!  His character has not changed!  Heremains the Holy Judge. 

In the news today, I heard what was reported as good news.  The number of aliens arrested at our southernborder has declined last month in July. Only 82,049 were arrested!  (Downfrom 104,367 in June.)    

For comparison, an army division is 10,000-20,000.  So, in one month we were invaded by an armyof 4 to 8 divisions.  For comparison, theUSA part of the invasion force on D-Day was 73,000. (23,250 on Omaha; 34,250 onUtah; and 15,500 airborne troops.)  Lastmonth we were invaded by more people than we sent into Europe on D-Day!  That is not good news; that is judgment! 

Application:  WAKE UP, America!  God is holding us accountable for themillions of babies we have aborted.  Wecannot count on our government to develop a plan to deal with God'sjudgment.  But we can count on God to mercifullyrespond to repentance.  We can count onGod to give wisdom in how to respond to our new neighbors.    

Prayer:  Heavenly Father, HELP!  We desperately need your help!  Holy Spirit, draw us to repentance and aplace of mercy.  Amen
