Oracle for America
by Jeffrey Haglund | August 1, 2016
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
I have spent a good bit of time in the last few weeks processing a word God gave me during a recent morning Bible reading. While reading Isaiah 19 I had one of those “aha!” moments. It was, God I hear Your whisper and am listening….
Below I take some liberties with the passage and replace two words. You’ll probably notice the changes quickly. Take note of three things:
Brother against Brother
God is going to give a cruel master
Christians take note. The problems coming in and after November are not unseen or unexpected. God said clearly as I read this passage, can you see the similarities? We are on a difficult course, one that will be hard for many. Remember, the problem isn’t our culture or community, it is us.
Christians and the Church are the problem. Christians (actually those calling themselves Christian) are the reason God is sending judgement. People in our pews and in our theater seating have checked off their weekly church box and live like reprobates the rest of the week. Church leaders have succumbed under the pressures of deacons and committees and do not institute church discipline. The church ignores these crises and continues forward. If we don’t concentrate on revival and seek the Lord, the below is inevitable.
Join your Association and new Prayer Coordinators, Bruce and Isabel Smith form FBC High Springs, in praying for revival in our Association. Prayer and large scale repentance within the church is the only means of avoiding this coming crisis. Thank you for your prayers!
19 The oracle concerning America.
Behold, the Lord is riding on a swift cloud and is about to come to America;
The idols of America will tremble at His presence,
And the heart of the Americans will melt within them.
2 “So I will incite Americans against Americans;
And they will each fight against his brother and each against his neighbor,
city against city and kingdom against kingdom.
3 “Then the spirit of the Americans will be demoralized within them;
And I will confound their strategy,
So that they will resort to idols and ghosts of the dead
And to mediums and spiritists.
4 “Moreover, I will deliver the Americans into the hand of a cruel master,
And a mighty king will rule over them,” declares the Lord God of hosts.
