Difficult Days

     America and its people are in difficult times because of the pandemic, violence, blood on the streets of our cities, confusion about what is right or wrong, political mayhem, whoredoms, fornication, pornography, lockdowns, man-made philosophies and traditions, deceit, and much much more including many, many sins. (Colossians 2:8). There are answers, but most are not willing to hear or see because they are in rebellion (Exekiel 2:7). Most individuals are not aware that the Old Testament was written for our “learning,” for our “hope,” and for us to “learn” more about Jesus (1 Cor. 10:6, Romans 15:4, Luke 24:27). In the book of Ezekiel, God gives a very appropriate allegory that related to the current situation and atmosphere of those days. There were two women, Aholah and Aholibah, sisters, who committed grievous sins (Ezekiel 23:1-49). Their sins can be likened to the sins of America in these last of the last days. Aholibah is Jerusalem in the days of the prophets, that sinned worse than her sister, Samaria, (see v.11). These two sisters represent Judah, the Southern tribes of Israel, and Samaria, the Northern tribes. Eventually, God’s judgment fell and the regions were taken into captivity. If you will, let’s call Aholibah, Washington DC, and Samaria, California. Whatever happens in California eventually influences the rest of America. One can relate the sins of Hollywood and Silicon valley’s godlessness to rejection of the one and only living God; that is, rebellion against Him. It is for our learning. If America continues to rebell, one can be certain that judgment will fall. As a matter of fact, it has already begun and can be expected to become worse. However, if the nation would repent of its sins and return to the “way of the Lord,” then a most gracious and merciful God would forgive our sins and heal our land. Maybe it’s time before it’s too late?

In our bookstore there are some excellent books concerning  hurting and healing, the true doctrines of the Bible, and about the right Bible, the history of America and the world from a Christian perspective, the last days,  some in Spanish, and many, many more. http://www.theoldpathspublications.com/Pages/BookStore.htm
