Is this the same America that you remember? What is the cause of all the trouble and where is the USA headed? In the Bible the LORD gives the prescription for His people that will heal their land. But what happens when they refuse the cure? Immediately after the horrifying events of 9/11 there was a Bible verse often quoted.
2 Chronicles 7:14 – 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.
But statistics and the condition of our very sick country demonstrate that His people have not listened. Is there another Bible passage that tells us what the LORD does when His people do not follow His clear instructions?
Not only is there one, but this powerful passage also warns of things we are seeing in the news, and feeling in our hearts, indicating that America will be an increasingly dangerous place in the coming days. Thankfully, our merciful Messiah provided a place of refuge found in the Old Testament book of Ezekiel‑the only safe harbor for Americans today. During these perilous times that are engulfing our land you will find the place of safety on the pages of America’s Ark! Gold, guns, and a house in the hills stocked with food is not the answer‑only the safety promised in the word of God will protect us.
