“Hear, O Israel! The LORD is our God, the LORD is one!”
God bless America video. Please watch first.
Has the east wind struck us? At a time when a foreboding darkness was rolling across the world, a Russian born Jew who had come to America wrote this song. He gathered many of us over and over again by our sentiments with songs like White Christmas, Easter Parade and of course God Bless America. He knew what the country needed and wrote a song to meet that need. I share this today, again, with tears in heart over our precious but violated America. In Ezekiel 17 1-10 you will read “Thus sayeth the Lord,” of two Eagles. The first gets its beginning seeds from the cedars of Lebanon and the roots were deep and healthy. A second Eagle, (I believe today’s America) in verse 7, had roots that bent upward toward the Eagle, not down toward the original roots. The roots looked for supply from the Eagle (the government) “It was planted in good soil beside abundant waters, that it might yield branches and bear fruit and become a splendid vine.”‘
9 “Say, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD, “Will it thrive? Will he (that second Eagle) not pull up its roots and cut off its fruit, so that it withers—so that all its sprouting leaves wither? And neither by great strength nor by many people can it be raised from its roots again. “Behold, though it is planted, will it thrive? Will it not completely wither as soon as the east wind strikes it—wither on the beds where it grew?”‘” Dear God people, this is America! Read it especially in a NASB. America has become the second Eagle. Where do we turn to and how do we vote? What about our fellow Americans? Does the majority turn to the Eagle for its sustenance? Are we turning away from our roots? Does this foretell our demise? What shall we do? Have we completely withered? Has the east wind struck us?
Whether it does or not, we each personally have a Deliverer, if we are faithful to get our nourishment from the original roots more so now than ever. Our original root system is not fully dead yet but according to this verse and Daniel 12:7 the power of the holy people will be broken, “shattering the power of the holy people,…. (then) all these events will be completed.”
Until then, we love like Jesus loved, interceding as we forgive, we rage against the Devil and his works with a holy and High Praise to God for the wisdom He has offered to us, wisdom that will save us as we endure.
