It’s not good will. It’s not love of country. It is not even prayers that necessarily can bring on a judgment bad or good. It is rather the obeying or disobeying of God. So what are we suppose to learn from Jeremiah’s situation; or what should patriots understand today in light of Bible prophesy? God is the same yesterday, today and forever!
Wither you understand who the United States is in Bible Prophecy or not, most Christians know that according to the Bible, there will be a last day’s world-wide system that will oppress God’s people mightily. They will end up being hated of all nations. Many of their brethren and even family members will believe in the system so much that they are willing to betray the believers of God’s way. So this is going to happen but as an American who loves his country, ready and willing to die for it, you will not stop all this from happening. Many Jewish citizens died like dogs in the streets in Jeremiah’s day and then again on Masada, after the rejection of Yeshua (Jesus). It all happened Just like Jesus predicted it would. He had entered Jerusalem sorrowfully before his furious tossing out of the money changers; In Luke Chapter 19.
41 ¶ And when he was come near, he beheld the city, and wept over it,
42 Saying, If thou had known, even thou, at least in this thy day, the things which belong unto thy peace! But now they are hid from your eyes.
43 For the days shall come upon thee, that your enemies shall cast a trench about thee, and compass thee round, and keep thee in on every side,
44 And shall lay thee even with the ground, and thy children within thee; and they shall not leave in thee one stone upon another; because thou knew not the time of thy visitation.
In another place Jesus said of the nation of the Jews, that they would not see him again until the time that they would say, “blessed is he that comes in the name of the lord,” which will be at his second and prophesied coming.
Now we know that it was going to be at least nearly 2,000 years before Jesus was to come back and save Judah and Israel. The Good thing for us is that the really bad times under the Beast and False Prophet will last only 3 and ½ years. It is called the time of Jacob’s trouble. Remember, Jacob as Paul explains in Roman’s 9 is a type of the church; also as children of the spirit. No way to get around the fact that the Church is the acceptable antitype of Isaac and the acceptable antitype of Jacob, until God is finished with Israel of the flesh. He is not finished and he will bring them too. That is what Paul is talking about. So as I prove elsewhere, it is principally the so-called Christian nations that will go through the great tribulation. There is absolutely no way by scripture to get them into heaven before the LAST, the 7TH trumpet.
So as in many persecutions in the past both Jews and Christians will go though the tribulation. Tribulation has come to the Jew first but also hits the Gentile and messianic church membership.
THE BEST WE CAN HOPE FOR;
The best believers could hope for is to have a Jonah Moment. Such a successful revival that everyone repents in sackcloth and ashes as did the people of Nineveh. Ok, the Bible says that we should hope all things and believe all things, therefore I never say never. But even if that was to happen, Jacob would still go through tribulation, however the details would be a lot different because of some promises of God.
In fact instead of lamenting that the USA is hated, Americans should rejoice, if it is hated because of TRUTH. No doubt they should hope the US is hated by all nations like you could not believe. It might mean that the whole world would exclude the US from the New World Order to try to wipe it out as a power in the market place and influence.
