The USA is following in the footsteps of the fall of Israel. Israel’s first strike of judgement was a lift of protection which amounted to an attack from the enemy as a wake-up call. They did not repent and return to God. Instead, they defied Him by making an opposite vow in Isaiah 9:10 telling God that they would rebuild on their own without Him, stronger than ever, basically rubbing it in God’s face. Israel, then, experienced increasing judgements on safety, health, finance, land, etc., until they were finally exciled from their land leaving it an abandoned wasteland.
God’s pronouncement on Israel:
(The Bible has immediate prophecies (happened right away), mid-prophecies (which would happen later within the same generation), and then a later fulfillment in which the prophecy is fullfilled again sometime much later in the future. This prophecy might well also be for the USA. “Israel” is used also to describe all tribes of Isreal or all followers/believers. Judah, listed also in these verses, is just the specific tribe of Judah from which Jesus comes from.)
Isaiah 9:8-21: The Lord has sent a message against Jacob; it will fall on Israel [All of God’s chosen people]. All the people will know it—Ephraim [God’s people] and the inhabitants of Samaria [The pagens – or those who don’t worship God] — who say with pride and arrogance of heart, “The bricks have fallen down, but we will rebuild with dressed stone; the fig trees have been fellen, but we will replace them with cedars.” But the Lord has strengthened their foes against them and has spurred their enemies on. Arameans from the east and Philistines from the west have devoured Israel with open mouth. Yet for all this, his anger is not turned away, his hand is still upraised. But the people have not returned to him who struck them, nor have they sought the Lord Almighty. So the Lord will cut off from Israel both head and tail, both palm branch and reed in a single day; the elders and dignitaries are the head, the prophets who teach lies are the tail. Those who guide this people mislead them, and those who are guided are led astray. Therefore the Lord will take no pleasure in the young men, nor will he pity the fatherless and widows, for everyone is ungodly and wicked, every mouth speaks folly. Yet for all this, his anger is not turned away, his hand is still upraised. Surely wickedness burns like a fire; it consumes briers and thorns, it sets the forest thickets ablaze, so that it rolls upward in a column of smoke. By the wrath of the Lord Almighty the land will be scorched and the people will be fuel for the fire; they will not spare one another. On the right they will devour, but still be hungry; on the left they will eat, but not be satisfied. Each will feed on the flesh of their own offspring. Manasseh will feed on Ephraim [these are brothers, sons of Joseph], and Ephraim on Manasseh; together they will turn against Judah. Yet for all this, his anger is not turned away, his hand is still upraised.”
The USA had a wake-up call on 9-11-01 as God removed His hedge of protection briefly telling us to wake up and return to Him. It appeared that there would be some changes as people did turn to God in the immediate, but fell sharply away again. His 2nd judgement is financial crashes hitting the very foundation of of country. Next scheduled major hit: Sept 2015
Want proof of Sept 2015?: God requires His children to have a 7th year rest, celebrated on a one day of that year, called “Shemitah” where we would forgive all debts, let the land rest of crops, etc. The USA has not done this (as well as honoring many of His other requests) because our country is centered on financial gain and power (examples to also include the opening of shops on Sundays). God allowed a warning to us on the exact day of Shemitah, 9-11-01, where not only were the financial towers taken down, but the stock market also had a huge crash of -7%. When was the next crash? 7 years later at “Shemitah” again on 9-29-08 with the largest crash in our history. Let’s take 7 more years out, that puts us at any even greater crash in Sept 2015.
Have these the same vows of Isaiah 9:10 been pronounced in the USA? Yes. They are very public pronouncements of judgement by government officials (though not even known by those who spoke it, as they’ve spoken the verse completely out of context). 9-12-01 by Tom Daschle, 9-11-04 by John Edwards, and 2-29-09 by Obama to the nation… The exact same verse out of over 30,000 possible scriptures to choose from.
Want an even weirder ‘coincidence?’ On Jan 20, 2009 Obama gave his first oath in office. 1290 days later, on Aug 2, 2012, he signed the top beam of the new “One World Trade Center” with the following inscription, “We remember. We rebuild. We come back stronger.” (Isaiah 9:10) A weird exact date ‘coincidence’ by the prophet Daniel 12:11 “And from the time the regular sacrifice (or could be translated ‘position of employment’) shall given oath (or ‘abolished’) and the abomination of desolation (or the idol that ‘makes terror’) set up shall be 1290 days.”
What next, America? Wake up and stay tuned. Pray for the repentance of this country before God’s judgements come.
