Jeremiah has been called to warn the people of Israel. When you read Jeremiah, if you substitute the United States for Israel, you will realize that the Book of Jeremiah is not just historical, but extremely and divinely prophetic. Jeremiah, except for certain verses is rarely taught on today and yet, with the state of the United States as a Nation, we NEED, we MUST take the words of Jeremiah to heart!
It seems that in the age we are living in today, we have not learned from the past and have not taken the Words of the Lord seriously at all. Even when fear and panic sweep the nation, the only ones bowing in prayer are God’s own children. Even though Israel was and is God’s special chosen children, they hardened their hearts against Him in the past and He had to speak words of warning to them.
Today, words of warning have been spoken to many nations of the world and especially the United States who claims that “In God We Trust,” yet sadly, the very things He allows to get the nation’s attention so as to turn to Him in repentance only leads our corrupt leaders to harden their hearts all the more. God, our Heavenly Father has been gentle and merciful in His warnings and yet, though He doesn’t BRING evil to a nation or a people, their own sinfulness will cause it to come in like a flood and God in His justness will stand back and let it come unless His people repent! What will it take to melt our hearts AS a Nation and turn from our unbridled wickedness?
