Dear ones in Christ,
God`s concern for us is that we win lost souls throughout the world. Isn`t God concerned with the nations? "All nations before him are as nothing; and they are counted to him less than nothing, and vanity." (Isaiah 40:17) There`s only one that matters to Him. That nation is Israel. Remember, when Jesus Christ returns He`ll reign in Jerusalem as the King of the Jews.
But what about us, the greatest nation and people in the world? Be careful, "Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall" (Prov. 16:18). Well, what about England, Europe, and China? Let`s see what God says about them. Take another look at Isaiah 40:17, then decide for yourself.
Why did God bless America like He has? Because we were kind to the Jews. They were safe living here. In fact, God used America to bring in a new nation in one day! And He used President Truman to pull it off. Israel became a nation, and Islam went ballistic.
But now, there`s a dark cloud over our nation. Our attitude toward Israel has changed. Our nation is reluctant to show Israel the care and protection it should and God doesn`t like it one bit. He says about Israel, "I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee...," (Genesis 12:3). Rest assured, at our devotions at Chick Publications we pray for Israel and the peace of Jerusalem.
I believe as long as we can get out the gospel, the Lord will hold back His judgment of America. So, let`s please the Lord by passing out gospel, soul-winning tracts to the lost. The night is coming, beloved. The Lord is coming with a mighty judgment on the nations. "And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh" (Luke 21:28).
Your brother in Christ,
