“Hear, O Israel! The LORD is our God, the LORD is one!”
There is a biblical prophesy of America. America, the two eagles in scripture, offer a distressing view of our land where conditions now exist that fulfill the scripture with more distress to come.
Ezekiel 17:3-7 (NASB)
3 saying, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD, “A great eagle with great wings, long pinions and a full plumage of many colors came to Lebanon and took away the top of the cedar.
4 “He plucked off the topmost of its young twigs and brought it to a land of merchants; he set it in a city of traders.
5 “He also took some of the seed of the land and planted it in fertile soil. He placed it beside abundant waters; he set it like a willow.
6 “Then it sprouted and became a low, spreading vine with its branches turned toward him, but its roots remained under it. So it became a vine and yielded shoots and sent out branches.
7 “But there was another great eagle with great wings and much plumage; and behold, this vine bent its roots toward him and sent out its branches toward him from the beds where it was planted, that he might water it.”
Has scripture shown us where America is in God’s foretelling? Do these two eagles sound like and look like America, as she once was, and worse as she is now?
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 bringing seeds to another land, (America) and the roots were deep and healthy because of biblical foundations the land was birthed on. A second Eagle, (I believe today’s America) in verse 7, that land turned its roots upward toward the Eagle for supply. The vine, America today I believe, looked for supply from the second Eagle (the government) and not the God of her origins.
Of the vine and the second eagle it says in verse 8, “It (the vine) was planted in good soil beside abundant waters, that it might yield branches and bear fruit and become a splendid vine.”‘ Verse 9 “Say, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD, “Will it thrive? Will he (the second Eagle) not pull up its (America’s biblical) 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 now! Read it especially in a NASB. America has become the second Eagle. Where do we turn to and how do we vote? The phrase, “Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country,” perished by evil doers unknowingly supporting the downfall of America. They thought they were doing good.
You say “not me” I am not looking to the government, but what about our fellow Americans? Does the majority turn to the Eagle for its sustenance? Yes they do. Are they not turning away from our biblical roots? Is there not a concerted effort to do so? Does this not foretell our demise? What shall we do? What can we do? Have we completely withered? Not yet.
Ezekiel 17:10 (NASB)
10 “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?”‘”
Has the east wind struck us? Do you have any doubt? On 911 and now elected to Congress, the east wind is becoming a whirl wind. As a nation, the majority asked for it. It will be their demise outside of God’s mercy.
Proverbs 1:25-31, 33 (NKJV)
25 Because you disdained all my counsel, And would have none of my rebuke,
26 I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your terror comes,
27 When your terror comes like a storm, And your destruction comes like a whirlwind, When distress and anguish come upon you.
28 “Then they will call on me, but I will not answer; They will seek me diligently, but they will not find me.
29 Because they hated knowledge And did not choose the fear of the LORD,
30 They would have none of my counsel And despised my every rebuke.
31 Therefore they shall eat the fruit of their own way, And be filled to the full with their own fancies.
33 But whoever listens to me will dwell safely, And will be secure, without fear of evil.”
That mercy is in listening and obeying Christ Jesus only. Evil is upon us and only in Him will we have no fear of evil.
“If it walks like a duck…” Those who voted for abortion, look at where their money is coming from. It is ranges from Planned Parenthood, to Democratic party support and greater to Globalist support depending on their public status and influence in the party. They have sold out to the Globalist agenda masquerading as the Democratic Party and among other disastrous things, the Globalist agenda includes a serious if not deadly reduction in the world population.
Our citizenry is being challenged by pro-life advocates to be more responsible about sex! Right sure the people really want to do that. Christians are working against the onslaught that is against God as a guiding force in this nation. This molestation of America’s biblical virtue has produced the expected result! The majority of our population now looks to the government to decide what is moral or not. As I said above, this was prophesied in Ezekiel 17, about two Eagles. America as she was born and as she has become! In verse 9 it says “Will he (Eagle 2) not pull up its roots and cut off its fruit so that it withers … and neither by great strength nor by many people can it be raised from its roots again.” Vs 10, will it not completely wither as soon as the east wind strikes it_ wither on the beds where it grew?”
I tell you even as Christ death appeared to be the defeat of God to God’s enemies, so shall our apparent defeat appear as we recognize our apparent minority. We must run to God for the courage and compassion to see through His eyes and survive by interceding for our enemies as Jesus did. They are doomed otherwise.
To confirm relevance, see verse 12,
Ezekiel 17:12 (NASB)
12 “Say now to the rebellious house, ‘Do you not know what these things mean?‘ Say, ‘Behold, the king of Babylon came to Jerusalem, took its king and princes and brought them to him in Babylon.”
I am telling you Babylon has already come to Jerusalem! We are Babylon in this modern age. Our embassy has been moved to Jerusalem! Peace is being discussed. A covenant as in vs 14 is being negotiated, … an administration (not necessarily the current one,) will betray Israel and betray the God of Israel in the process. See verses 15-20.
I have now spoken to you and it is distressing. Will you awaken to everlasting life or to disgrace and everlasting contempt and abhorrence? Dan 12:2.
“Because you disdained all my counsel, And would have none of my rebuke, …” Prov 1:25
Will you be one from the next verse? “Daniel 12:3 (NASB) “Those (orig. instructors) who have insight will shine brightly like the brightness of the expanse of heaven, and those who lead the many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever.”
We, each of us personally, have a Deliverer. We must remain faithful to get our nourishment from the Original Roots, bearing fruit now more so than ever. Our personal original root system is not fully dead however 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.”
Will Christ find faith when He returns? Will we be standing by faith in the enduring love message Jesus pointed to in Matthew 24: 13-14? Will we endure until the end, in the good news of the kingdom, the enduring love of God. This enduring love was the good news of the Cross.
The Lord’s love endured toward all mankind because He knew we did not know better. Now……. Now we do know better. Jesus interceding today can no longer say we did not know better.
Until then, when ever “then” is, by our death or the return of Jesus, we are to love like Jesus loved, interceding as we forgive and protect ourselves. We shall rage against the Devil and his works by a holy and High Praise to God for the wisdom He has offered to us, wisdom that will save us as we endure. Just like it did Him.
“If we remain in His grip, (under His control and teaching), how far from His heart can we be!
We initiate the return of Christ! (The E-book)
