Is The U.S. Being Cursed Because Of It’s Present Treatment Of Israel?

The Lord had said to Abram, “Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you.

 “I will make you into a great nation,
and I will bless you;
I will make your name great,
and you will be a blessing.
 I will bless those who bless you,
and whoever curses you I will curse;
and all peoples on earth
will be blessed through you.

Genesis 12: 1-3

In Genesis 12: 1-3, we are given a glimpse of how the nations of the world should treat Abraham’s descendants, the Jewish people…Israel.  God tells Abraham to leave his family, who lived in the City of Haran.   In faith, God told him to move to a land which he had never been to…the land of Canaan – which is now present day Israel.  Abraham is told by God. that he and his descendants, will be blessed by the Most High  because of his obedience to God.  The promise is that those who blessed Abraham’s descendants would be blessed and those who cursed his descendants would be cursed.

We, at this present time in history, see the United States government doing all that it can to divide the land of Israel and the City of Jerusalem.  The US is doing this as well as supporting the Palestinians’ attempt to wipe Israel off the map, with a false peace.  Do you consider this a true support for the only true ally we have in the Middle East?  The US is still suffering economic hard times, joblessness, droughts, floods, hurricanes (Super Storm Sandy) in the Northeast, earthquakes, declining economic and military power and the horrific behavior of corrupt politicians bringing this country down.

What is there to say?  Are we blessed or cursed, according to God’s Word?  Wake up, America, we have taken our fingers and poked God in His Eye and cursed Israel – instead of blessing her.  God is cursing America for our treatment of the nation of Israel.

DELIVERANCE FROM SODOM

DELIVERANCE FROM SODOM
by David Wilkerson
[May 19, 1931 – April 27, 2011]

Most of us think of Sodom as a type of modern-day wicked city such as San
Francisco, New York or New Orleans. But the truth is, we need only to look at
our own hearts to find Sodom. We are all born with a Sodomite nature—a heart
that is exceedingly wicked, full of every evil thing. “Yea, in your heart ye
work wickedness; ye weigh the violence of your hands in the earth” (Psalm
58:2)

I believe the following passage reveals how God delivers us out of Sodom:

“According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto
life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory
and virtue: whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises:
that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the
corruption that is in the world through lust” (2 Peter 1:3-4).

God comes to us in our deluded, bound condition with powerful promises of full
and complete deliverance. He says, “I pledge to deliver you and keep you from
iniquity. I will give you a heart to obey Me, so now let My promises lay hold
of you.”

What a wonderful, freeing truth. We are led out of our sin as we lay hold of
God’s promises. Think about it for a moment. Peter says the believers he was
addressing in this epistle had “escaped the corruption that is in the world
through lust” (verse 4). How did these Christians escape sin? They were given
divine power—life and godliness—through their faith in God’s promises.

Beloved, your Father wants you to know fullness of joy in Christ. That joy will
break out only as you are freed from the power of sin. So, allow the Holy Spirit
to go into the womb of your lusts and remove everything that is unlike Christ.
Pray to the Lord right now:

“Oh, Father, I agree with You about my sin. The stench of my compromise has
reached into heaven and I know it has to go immediately. Lord, I receive Your
loving, divine ultimatum and I lay everything down before You. Set fire to
everything wicked in me and let Your promises take hold of my heart. Lead me to
the mountain of Your holiness.”
