“If God doesn’t soon bring judgment upon America, He’ll have to go back and apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah!” That was said by Ruth Graham, late wife of Billy Graham, many years ago.
Friday, June 26, 2015, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that state laws outlawing homosexual marriage violated the 14th amendment to the constitution which safeguards the right to due process. So homosexual marriage is now legal in all 50 states of the United States.
Often when there’s big, paradigm-shifting news, I check to see the date on the Hebrew calendar and research its history. June 26, 2015 fell on Tammuz 9. Tammuz 9 is the date on which the Babylonian army laying siege to Jerusalem broke through the city wall in 423 B.C.
While the United States is not Israel, is not the Jewish people, the date is no mere coincidence. I feel strongly it is a signpost of where we are. The hedge of protection that the God of Israel has blessed the US with has been breached, dare I write, broken.
Ezekiel 22:30 has never been so relevant to the United States and those within who still fear God.
“I [the LORD] sought for a man among them who could build a barricade or stand in the break to oppose me on behalf of the land, so that I would not destroy it; but I found no one.”
Let us be found within the break in the wall, crying to God for mercy. Let us also shout in the street of God’s mercy of the cross. Yes, tribulation is coming. Isn’t that obvious by the horrific news of the past year? Let us shout “Mercy!” to our God and “There is mercy at the cross in repentance” to the lost.
