Summary: America and Ancient Israel
America and Ancient Israel
The similarities between the ancient Israelites and Americans today are staggering. There are numerous, and I mean numerous Old Testament and New Testament Scriptures dedicated to Israel and its eminent fall, so there is absolutely no way we will be able to cover them all. However, I would like to share with you my Top Ten from Psalms 106.
10. THEY (America) DID NOT REMEMBER HOW GOOD GOD
HAD BEEN TO THEM [106:7]
Psalm 106:7 Our fathers understood not thy wonders in Egypt; they remembered not the multitude of thy mercies; but provoked him at the sea, even at the Red sea.
Americans have it good; but are we a thankful nation? Not only do we not thank Him; we won’t even acknowledge Him.
9. THEY (America) BOWED DOWN TO IDOLS AND IMAGES [106:19]
Psalm 106:19 They made a calf in Horeb,
and worshipped the molten image.
Can anyone say Hollywood, Music, Sports ? These people have become more important
to our society than God. They get far more respect and admiration than Jesus.
8. THEY (America) FORGOT THEIR SAVIOR [106:21]
Psalm 106:21 They forgot God their saviour, which had done great things in Egypt;
November 14, 2014 ring any bells? The first Muslim prayer service held in our National Cathedral (an Episcopal church). We crossed the line (in the name of tolerance) when we allowed Muslims to turn their back on the cross and shout prayers that stated Allah is the greatest and the one true god.
We allowed another god to be worshiped in a church meant for Jesus Christ. In doing things like this and taking prayer out of school and government, we have truly forgotten who are savior is, Jesus Christ.
7. THEY (America) DESPISED THEIR HERITAGE [106:24]
Psalm 106:24 Yea, they despised the
pleasant land, they believed not his word:
How many Christians in America today,
are ashamed of Christianity? How many have fallen away from their Christian roots simply because we are now in the minority?
6. THEY (America) COMPROMISED THEIR CHARACTER TO BE LIKE OTHERS [106:28]
Psalm 106:28 They joined themselves also to Baalpeor, and ate the sacrifices of the dead.
In order to fit in with society, Christians are compromising their values and beliefs.
Even churches are changing their doctrines to pacify “tolerance saints.” The Methodist Church decided to re-evaluate the Bible
and its history. “chrislam”
5. THEY(America) TEMPTED GOD [106:32]
Psalm 106:32 They angered him also at the waters of strife, so that it went ill with Moses for their sakes:
When we thumb our nose at God by doing what we want, on the account of grace, we too are daring Him to do something about it.
4. THEY (America) REBELLED AGAINST THE HOLY SPIRIT [106:33]
Psalm 106:33 Because they provoked his spirit, that he spake unadvisedly with his lips.
Even Pentecostals are tring to “educate out “ the Holy Ghost. Now, in hopes of uniting Muslims, Jews, and Christians, they are asking Christians to compromise on Jesus.
3. THEY (America) REFUSED TO CARRY OUT GOD’S ORDERS [106:34]
