<< Jeremiah 5 >>
1“Roam to and fro through the streets of Jerusalem,
And look now and take note.
And seek in her open squares,
If you can find a man,
If there is one who does justice, who seeks truth,
Then I will pardon her.
2“And although they say, ‘As the LORD lives,’
Surely they swear falsely.”
3O LORD, do not Your eyes look for truth?
You have smitten them,
But they did not weaken;
You have consumed them,
But they refused to take correction.
They have made their faces harder than rock;
They have refused to repent.
We know from what is written in Matt 24 and Luke 17 that the coming of the Son of Man will be just like it was in the days of Noah and the days of Lot. If you remember the story of Lot, the Lord appeared to Abraham and told him that if only a few righteous could be found in Sodom, then the city would be spared. We know the outcome, not even a few righteous could be found, so the city was not spared.
We see this idea here in Jeremiah as well, if only a few righteous could be found, then Jerusalem would be pardoned, but a few could not be found. They refused to repent. This brings us to America and her fate. There is no other country in the world that measures up to America when it comes to meeting all the criteria to be end times Babylon. If America is indeed Babylon, don't you find it ironic that so many within her claim to be "godly" and "Christian?"
The Word tells us that over and over again, the Lord would spare whole cities if only a few righteous could be found in them, but a few could not be found. What will become of America when her sins are stacked up to the heavens. What will become of America when she claims that she is a Queen and there is no other? What will become of America when her nicolaitan priests known as "pastors" claim to be "men of god" yet they know not God?
Part of the reason past cities and peoples were destroyed was because they refused to repent. They did not repent because they did not think they were doing anything wrong, in fact, they thought they were "godly" until the very moment destruction flooded them. Where are the priests in Babylon (pastors in America) that are calling daily for repentance and turning away from sin? You cant find them. Today's babylonian, nicolaitan priests (pastors) wouldn't know what repentance was if it kicked them in the teeth. They do not know what repentance is, therefore they do not preach it. Not only do they not know repentance, they feel no need for it. After all, have you seen the size of their monument to men "church" buildings? Why repent when they have not sinned they say in their hearts.
Todays nicolaitan, babylonian pastors do not preach repentance for sins, and this while the Lord's eyes search the land for one or two men who do what is right so that babylon (America) may be spared from the coming destruction. The bible tells us that "in repentance and rest" is our salvation, but we would have none of it..
Isaiah 30:15 This is what the Sovereign LORD, the Holy One of Israel, says: "In repentance and rest is your salvation, in quietness and trust is your strength, but you would have none of it.
Babylon is fallen, fallen....there are none who do what is right. Everyone is right in their own mind but men do not know the requirements of the Lord, each goes his own way. So, the Lord looks for a few righteous to spare the land from destruction and where can these few be found?
This writer has been struck over the past month or so with thoughts about babylon/America. America is a land where people live in luxury unlike any other nation on earth. The standard of living in America is unparalleled when you compare how many live here with how many live like the "rich" comparatively to others in the world. America is a land of occult idols and symbols, look at her money and the idols she has erected for herself (Lady liberty in NY harbor, the entire construction of downtown Washington DC, what has been imprinted on her money etc).
Things have been so well with America because although she was birthed as an occult nation she also had enough godly seed within her to make her prosper. It is the light, not the darkness within a nation that causes them to prosper. It only takes a little light to drive out alot of darkness. I ask you though, what has happened to babylon's light?
America has been spared the disasters that are coming upon her. Time has been purchased for babylon due to the few righteous that still remain in her. There is coming a time when the righteous will be removed and there will be no more light to restrain the darkness that will overtake this nation. In the meantime, what can the righteous do? We can pray, we can confess our sins, the sins of our family and the sins of our nation to our God they way the prophets did for backslidden Israel. We can reason with the Lord for more good days because of the remnant that exists in the land. Time has been purchased for America, perhaps more time will be given if we change our ways...
If we say that we do not sin, we are liars.
1 John 1:10
... If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us. ...
Let us repent, let us confess before God Almighty that we have fallen, fallen so far so fast and it is against Him alone that we have tresspassed. Let us seek peace and pursue it while the Lord's face and favor may still be found.
These are the things I hear the Lord saying to me today. grace and peace
