Is America on the verge of destruction?
Some would suggest such prophecies only applied to Israel – and we have little to learn from them, says Farah. “Nonsense. We can learn from every verse of the Bible – and need to – especially when they speak to us about our own experiences. That’s why they were written. That’s why they were recorded. That’s why God spoke them. That’s why the Bible is the bestselling book in the history of the world. That’s why these ancient words, above all others, have been preserved for us today. When modern American leaders are actually mouthing the same words as the unrepentant and proud leaders of ancient Israel, who wanted to do things their way instead of God’s way, let’s just say it gets your attention,” says Farah. “In America we are not only repeating the ancient vows, we are re-enacting the plot. We are indeed setting up kings, without regard to God. We are making princes who He knows not. And we are making idols of material things, so that we may be cut off. Lord help us.”
