Consider This!

Isaiah 5:3-4. “And now, O inhabitants of Jerusalem and men of Judah, judge, I pray you, betwixt me and my vineyard. What could have been done more to my vineyard, that I have not done in it? wherefore when I looked that it should bring forth grapes, brought it forth wild grapes?”

The question is clear, and the results are inevitable. God asks the people of Jerusalem and Judah, “What more could I have done for you, that would have kept you in right relationship with Me?”

The answer is so sad. He had given them everything, including protection from their enemies, and still, all they had to offer Him in return was sour grapes.

Judgment would come.

Again, the parallels with America are unavoidable. We are protected on both sides by mighty oceans; on the north and south by usually friendly nations. We have had more access to the Word of God and the knowledge of His will for us than any other nation in the history of the world, and yet we have nothing but bad fruit to offer Him.

Judgment is coming.

  1. Ah, Linda, there is a remnant. Last weekend at the True Woman conference in Indianapolis, named CryOut 16 this year, the convention center was full.
    Sure, there are many many loose living “Christians” in our nation making things difficult for those who truly want to have a decent testimony, but there are many true believers. Revival is worth praying for still.
