    Similarities between US today and fallen ancient israel

    List of Similarities between Ancient Israel and America (While We Were Sleeping Part 11)

    Here I am (a day late-but I promise it was not my fault-lol)) ready with my list of similarities between the ancient Israelites and Americans today. Glory to God!
    But before I begin, let me just ask, “Did you get your homework done?” Yah, not as easy as it looks, huh?

    The similarities between the ancient Israelites and Americans today are staggering. There are numerous, and I mean numerous Old Testament and New Testament Scriptures dedicated to Israel and its emminent fall, so there is absolutely no way we will be able to cover them all. However, I would like to share with you my Top Ten.

    Yes, I am cheating (a little bit). First, I will take a look at the Top 10 posted on Sunday night and show where I think America is at in comparison. I will then move on to other verses that have stood out to me in Isaiah.


    Americans have it good, there is no doubt about it. We are surrounded by excess (houses, cars, plenty of food, shelter). You name it; we have it. Now, I know that not everybody in America has the excesses, but most have at least their basic needs covered (if even by the government). But are we a thankful nation? Do we thank God for all our wealth and privaleges? No, of course not! Not only do we not thank Him; we can’t (won’t) even acknowledge Him.


    Can anyone say Hollywood? NBA? MLB? NFL? These people have become more important to our society than God. They get far more respect and admiration that is for sure.


    November 14, 2014 ring any bells? Yep, the catalyst to this whole series: The first Muslim prayer service held in our National Cathedral( an Episcopal church). Yes, I have said it before and I will say it again, we crossed the line (in the name of tolerance) when we allowed Muslims to turn their back on the crosss and shout prayers that stated Allah is the greatest and the one true god. We allowed another god to be worshiped in a church meant for Jesus Christ. In doing things like this and taking prayer out of school and government, we have truly forgotten who are savior is, Jesus Christ (we will talk more about this in a minute).


    How many Christians in America today are ashamed of their Christianity (or at least at times)? How many have fallen away from their Christian roots simply because we are more and more in the minority? Sad but true.


    See above. Lol. In order to fit in with society or the world, Christians are compromising their values and beliefs. Even churches are changing their doctrines to pacify “tolerance saints.” The Methodist Church (to which I currently belong-emphasis on currently) has decided they would like to re-evaluate the Bible and its history. Yep, we will sure be talking about this at a later date. When I think of compromise I am reminded of the Casting Crowns song Slow Fade, in which it states:
    “When flattery leads to compromise, the end is always near”

    If we compromise on the Bible we loose ever ounce of credibility we ever had and there is no going back.

    5. THEY TEMPTED GOD [106:32]

    The Israelites disobeyed God time and time again, almost daring Him to pick them off. When we thumb our nose at God by not falling the Bible, doing what we want on the account of grace, we too are thumbing our noses at God daring Him to do something about it.


    If this was indeed by Top Ten list, this one would be closer to number one. The Bible is very clear that we get our power to fight temptation and stay the Christian course from Holy Spirit. However, there is a staggering amount of people and churches who simply do not believe in or teach Holy Spirit. They have dumbed down the third person of the Holy Trinity to our conscience! What better way for Satan to get a leg up and render the church ineffective by taking away its source of power? This method has been effective for many, many years. Most people can’t see it yet, but God clearly showed me that Jesus is next. Somewhere along the way, Christians compromised their beliefs and allowed the Holy Spirit’s role to be reduced . Now, in hopes of uniting Muslims, Jews, and Christians, they are asking Christians to compromise on Jesus. Why else would Muslims or their supporters even approach the idea of a Muslim led service in an Episcopal church? This so-called uniting of the three religions may just be a step toward a one world religion as indicated in Revelation.


    Once again, American Christians have a big problem with obedience. After all, “it’s all about that grace, about that grace, right?


    A large part, maybe even a majority, of American Christians today look and act no different from the world. Even though we are called to be different, called to be Holy, we still want to be a part of the world. When we participate in the things of the world, we participate in many things that are purely evil. I have watched TV shows and movies that promoted evil. I read (and allowed my mind to be penetrated by) evil garbage. You get the picture. When we Christians pursue this world and the evil desires of the flesh more than we pursue God, are we really following Christ?


    One word needed here: Abortion.

    Okay, and that was Psalm 106 by itself! The Bible is full of much, much more.

    But did you catch it? When I reference we or the state of this country, I’m not addressing the world but Christians.

    America is not in trouble because of all those who do not know God. No, America will be punished because those who do know or have known God have forsaken Him and His will.

    Take a look at Isaiah (in your own Bibles). Here, it is so very clear that God is addressing the Israelites; his chosen people. He is angry because His chosen have forsaken Him and turned their backs on Him. (We’ve established earlier in One Nation Under God that we are indeed God’s chosen one too, and we will be talking about it again soon.)
    It was not the “gentiles” that brought down Israel and Judah; it was the “chosen ones.”
    So remember that the next time you start getting angry with non-believers and how “they” are ruining this country.

    In Isaiah he goes on to give another list of things the Israelites had done or were doing to bring on their own destruction that I think should be added to our list of similarities.

    11. Their sacrifices were not heartfelt and in vain. (Isaiah 1:13-5);

    12. They were corrupted by their love of money (Isaiah 1:23);

    13. They were selfish and only thought of themselves (Is. 1:23);

    14. They took up pagan/satanic practices (worshiped other gods and idols (Is. 2:6, 8-9)

    15. Their nation wanted for nothing (full of excess) (Is. 2:7)

    16. They were a prideful nation, lofty and haughty (Is, 2:17);

    17. Their tongues were against God (Is. 3:8);

    18. They did not hide their sins, much like Sodom;

    19. Their leaders led them astray (Is. 3:12)

    20. The women dressed provocatively, trying to lure men (Is. 3:16-17)

    It doesn’t take much to see that if we replaced the “theys” with America, the statements would still be true, thus proving to me that America is on the same path of destruction of ancient Israel.

    Do I sound like one of those Bible extremists? Maybe. But let me just say that while this stuff may seem “out there”, don’t just dismiss it. As we established on Monday, in Written for our Learning, God gave us the Old Testament so that we could learn from them and not repeat their history. Clearly, these writings on the Israelites are warnings to us.
    Until next time,

    The moslem Barbary pirates and terrorism today. Muslims are like goats...

    The 70th, & Final, Jubilee Year of Israel,
    on Yom Kippur,
    September 23, 2015

    Our wonderful Spiritual Opportunity for New Freedom & Deliverance
    from the Oppression & Tyranny put on us by our Enemies

    The latest Shemita (Sabbath) year of Israel began September 24, 2014 and ends September 13, 2015. This is the 7th Shemita since Israel reclaimed Jerusalem in the 6 Day War.

    In the Previous 2 Shemita's, in 2001 & 2008 America experienced devastating events. On September 11, 2001 Terrorists attacked the World Trade Center, crashing into it with hijacked airliners, This was followed shortly by a large stock market crash. In 2008 we experienced a crash of the housing market, followed again by a stock market crash. All of these events have led to extended economic recessions.

    Now in 2015 we have already experienced a large stock market fluctuation which could lead to another stock market crash. Is This the Shemita curse in action?

    The Jubilee year of Israel begins on Yom Kippur, September 23, 2015. This is the 70th Jubilee since Israel came into the land from Egypt. According to Daniel, Chapter 9, the 24th verse, there will only be 70 Weeks (Jubilees), so this is the last one.

    (This link to find out why this is The Final Jubilee)

    The scriptures pertaining to Shemita and Jubilee can be found in Leviticus, Chapter 25. This will be Israel's second Jubilee in modern times, although neither have yet to be publicly proclaimed. This is also a Hebrew leap year, causing Jubilee to end on October 11th, 2016. A little less then a month before the American election.

    So how does this affect Christians living in America? It's really very simple, according to Romans 11, the gentile believers are grafted into Israel, to the root of our Jewish Messiah. For even though the Gentile believers aren't under the weight of the law, according to Acts 15, they can, however, because they are grafted into Israel, claim & enjoy all the blessings of Israel. We are all, through Jesus, children of faith unto the faith of Abraham, who believed God,

    There are only 2 nations on Earth who were founded by God, Israel and America. Israel by promise of God to Abraham to be the receiver of the promise of redemption from sin, a promise given to Adam, the 1st man, fulfilled through Moses, Joshua & Caleb, however Israel wandered among the nations for almost 2000 years because she rejected her messiah, Yeshua (Jesus).

    America, through the pilgrims and colonists who came here seeking freedom from religious persecution, seeking God for his blessings, which He granted beyond their wildest dreams. America is also called by God's word to be the protector of Israel in the last days, according to Daniel 7:4. America is that lion, being one of the British Lions, with the wings of a eagle. The bald eagle being our national symbol.

    When God formed America, Israel was still wandering in Diaspora, with no hope of ever returning to their land, but that has all changed, Israel is back in their land, and she too is being blessed beyond belief.

    For American Christians the timing of this Jubilee couldn't be better. Here we are in a position where our freedoms, in particular, our religious Liberties, are being stripped away from us, and with no recourse, because of a ruling by our Supreme Court, which as of this time, we have no method of reversal, Because of this Supreme Court ruling, we Christian are now relegated to being outlaws & renegades. When our constitution calls for rule by "We The People", of which we are the largest majority, comprising 83% of the population of the United States of America (Dave Nettles Gospel Music Vote Fraud article).

    We Christians serve the God who sets captives free, as told over and over in the pages of the Bible. Our God, who identified himself to Moses, as "I am, That I am" sent His son, Yeshua (Jesus) the Christ, to set the world free from sin. Our nation was formed with this ideal of freedom, based on God's word, and the freedom we have in Jesus Christ, "For who the son sets free, is free indeed", John 8:36.

    But our enemies hate "I Am" and His freedom, because they serve the Devil and partake of his bondage. People have a lot to say about "Conspiracy Theories", but I can prove via history that all of the political problems we have in America came about by our defeating the Barbary Coast Moslem Pirates, they are the forefathers of the terrorists we are facing today. When we refused to pay tribute to the pirates and then defeated them in war, it put America right in their cross hairs and they've been searching for ways to destroy us ever since. This was America's first war on foreign soil, commemorated in the Marine hymn.

    These current terrorists are fully responsible for what happened in 2001 by flying hijacked airliners into the World Trade Center & the Pentagon. The 2001 stock market crash was the financial result of this terror attack. The housing & stock market crashes of 2008, and the stock market troubles of 2015 are both the result of Moslem oil producers manipulating the oil market. God didn't do it, our enemies did!

    The following link will go to a link page detailing the Moslem connection to the Nazi's and Communists, with offshoots to White Supremacy and the "Progressives".

    The Moslem Connection To Radical Politics

    These agents went to great pains to infiltrate our colleges, universities, every segment of our political system, entertainment, mass media & even our churches. This has left us with a corrupt, left leaning political culture, headed by a leftist president elected by fraud. So far every effort to correct the situation has been thwarted, including the republican revolt of 2014, causing these Republicans to be labeled "RINO's" (Republican in Name Only).

    This has brought us to the very evil "Treaty" that our progressive, leftist president has "Negotiated" with our enemy Iran, We are now faced with the very real possibility of being annihilated. In other words our president has set us up to be "Nuked". Iran could get as much as $150 Billion, even if the deal isn't approved by congress.

    We seem to have no way out, but I can tell you with utmost assurance, "Our God, The Great I AM, Reigns". Our only way out is to call on God, The Great I AM, in the name of our King of king, Jesus. We need to do as Hezekiah of old did in II Kings:19, when faced with annihilation. He spread the surrender terms, which the evil Assyrian king had placed before him on the alter of the temple in front of "I AM", who sent his prophet to tell Hezekiah that He, "The Lord of the Universe" held this evil king in derision, in other words, he considered this king to be a joke.

    We need to go one step farther then Hezekiah did, we need to claim The Year of Jubilee as our own, and to do as Israel of old would have done, to physically blow the shofer in every Bible believing church in America, and proclaim liberty and deliverance from our vicious enemies. To ask "I AM" to forgive us for our national sins, that we might be free once more as we once were, as proclaimed by the inscription on the Liberty bell, which is from Leviticus, Chapter 25:10 "PROCLAIM LIBERTY THROUGHOUT ALL THE LAND UNTO ALL THE INHABITANTS THEREOF LEV. XXV X", continuing through all the days of Jubilee.

    In II Cronicles 7:14 God tells us what we must do to reclaim our nation, "If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.".
