‘the society crumbles under a foundation of spiritual decay’

Tellicherry_Church_of_England[1]

And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, Son of man, say unto her, Thou art the land that is not cleansed, nor rained upon in the day of indignation. There is a conspiracy of her prophets in the midst thereof, like a roaring lion ravening the prey; they have devoured souls; they have taken the treasure and precious things; they have made her many widows in the midst thereof. Her priests have violated my law, and have profaned mine holy things: they have put no difference between the holy and profane, neither have they shewed difference between the unclean and the clean, and have hid their eyes from my sabbaths, and I am profaned among them. Her princes in the midst thereof are like wolves ravening the prey, to shed blood, and to destroy souls, to get dishonest gain. And her prophets have daubed them with untempered mortar, seeing vanity, and divining lies unto them, saying, Thus saith the Lord GOD, when the LORD hath not spoken. The people of the land have used oppression, and exercised robbery, and have vexed the poor and needy: yea, they have oppressed the stranger wrongfully. Ezekiel 22:23-29

When God brought a judgement against His people (Israel) at the hand of Nebuchadnezzar, Ezekiel tells us what sin was prevalent in her day.

For the sake of comparison please read the above verses taken from the twenty-second chapter of Ezekiel and everywhere you read the word her, substitute the word America.

The first thing we should note is that the she was in this time of tribulation, ‘a land that is not cleansed, nor rained upon in the day of indignation’, because of her sin.

It was not His prophets and priest that had violated the law of God by profaning the holy things of God,  and devoured souls as a roaring lion ravening a prey, it was her prophets and priest.

It was also her princes, that were like wolves ravening the prey by shedding blood and destroying souls to prosper in their own wicked way. And instead of the prophets rebuking their ungodly judgment and laws, they daubed them with untempered mortar seeing vanity and divining lies unto them and would not stand upon the word of God and condemn their wicked deeds.

Because there was no spiritual leadership, the secular leadership ran amuck, leaving the people to exercise the same, vexing the poor and needy and oppressing the stranger wrongfully.

The very important lesson here, is that when there is no spiritual light and no moral compass the ship is tossed to and fro and drifts aimlessly at the beckoning of a wicked spirit, and that demonic.

My friend we don’t have to imagine real hard to see that America is in dire straits. The prophet and the priest have forsaken the word of God to daubed the pews in America with the lust of the flesh. I would to God that we had men behind pulpits that would rebuke the princes (congressman, senators, judges, lawyers, etc..) for their blasphemous judgements for profit and gain… Republican and Democrat alike!

When the prophet, priest and the prince are corrupt, where do we think that will leave the people? Look around my friend and pray for God’s mercy, for the ‘smelting furnace of God’s judgment’ is just around the corner.
