IF ISRAEL DRINKS BLOOD FOR SINS, WHAT ABOUT AMERICA
“For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and thou hast given them blood to drink; for they are worthy.” Revelation 16:6.
The angel of the waters justified the act of God in giving the wicked nation blood to drink. That nation is guilty of accepting the leadership of the Antichrist, and killing God’s prophets and believers. The following verses identify those given blood to drink. “Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets.” Matthew 23:31.”Woe unto you! for ye build the sepulchres of the prophets, and your fathers killed them.” Luke 11:47. ”Lord, they have killed thy prophets, and digged down thine altars; and I am left alone, and they seek my life.” Romans 11:3. “Who both killed the Lord Jesus, and their own prophets, and have persecuted us; and they please not God, and are contrary to all men:” 1 Thessalonians 2:15.
Stephen sealed his own fate by accusing and reminding the Jews of their long history of rebellion against God, and of murdering their own prophets and saints. He says, “Which of the prophets have not your fathers persecuted? and they have slain them which shewed before of the coming of the Just One; of whom ye have been now the betrayers and murderers:” Acts 7:52. This attitude and action will resume again, by Israel, under the leadership of the Antichrist. God’s wrath will be poured out on them to the fullest in those last days.
…nations who revel in corruption and immorality are doomed to judgment and destruction.
We are not told how God will judge the Gentile nations during that time. We know those who go up against Israel will be destroyed at Christ’s coming. However, Scripture and history show that nations who revel in corruption and immorality are doomed to judgment and destruction. What then will be the future of America? If God will not withhold judgment on the nation of Israel, can we expect Him to overlook the wickedness into which our country is marching?
When America’s heroes and entertainers, are people like: crotch grabbing, Michel Jackson; simulated intercourse, Madonna; the vulgar dancing of Jessica Simpson; the murder of the unborn and the promotion of sodomy; how can we expect anything other than judgment? I have no idea how God will judge each nation that is dedicated to wickedness, but rest assured; if Israel gets blood to drink for her sins, can the gentiles expect less?
It is time to wake up, straighten up, stand up, speak up, and look up. The world will have its “Bloody Mary” to drink, and when Jesus returns; it will shut up and eventually burn up. Until then, live for Him.
