Ask for the Old Paths!

10 To whom shall I speak, and give warning, that they may hear? behold, their ear is uncircumcised, and they cannot hearken: behold, the word of the Lord is unto them a reproach; they have no delight in it.

11 Therefore I am full of the fury of the Lord; I am weary with holding in: I will pour it out upon the children abroad, and upon the assembly of young men together: for even the husband with the wife shall be taken, the aged with him that is full of days.

12 And their houses shall be turned unto others, with their fields and wives together: for I will stretch out my hand upon the inhabitants of the land, saith the Lord.

13 For from the least of them even unto the greatest of them every one is given to covetousness; and from the prophet even unto the priest every one dealeth falsely.

14 They have healed also the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace.

15 Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? nay, they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush: therefore they shall fall among them that fall: at the time that I visit them they shall be cast down, saith the Lord.

16 Thus saith the Lord, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein.   Jer.

So ye must be born again?

Well, that is truly an old scripture and in the past was used often.  Jesus did not say that we needed to join a steeple house system, go to s.h. on certain days of the week, wear a cross nor start a bible study.  The early Church did not have such things.  However, He did say that we "must" be born again for that which is flesh is flesh, that which is Spirit is Spirit.  

There are many internal things which change when one received Christ within.  Everything in first Adam is over and now we have the Last Adam, within.  We have a new Father, we have the Light of Life within, we have Resurrection Life right in our Temple, our body.  We have been delivered from the bondage's of the world of first Adam and have been seated in Heavenly places in Christ Jesus:

Ephesians 2King James Version (KJV)

2 And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins;

2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:

3 Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.

4 But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,

5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)

6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Yes "made to sit".  Instead of taking our current position through the New Birth, we sit in the worldly places of first Adam.  We are not to be involved in the affairs of the world as it is written.  We are to be involved in the River of Life from the Father and His Program which  is nothing other than Christ Himself.  He did not send us to build a temple, nor to take over the politics of fallen nations.  Jesus came to set men free and there is no freedom without Him, only a defective form of standing against the governments of the planet.  Jesus did not join the blinded spiritual leaders and their programs nor did He move to Rome to join their political structure.  

It is actually quite amazing, as we all read the words of Jesus and His apostles, that there are few who actually follow His new covenant directions.  This is going to be a big problem in that day.    jmo       Jim

http://dailycaller.com/2017/07/09/church-of-england-considering-special-services-to-celebrate-gender-reassignment/?utm_campaign=atdailycaller&utm_source=Twitter&utm_medium=Social

The Church of England voted Sunday to consider holding special services when a member of the congregation announces a new gender identity or undergoes gender transformation.

The vote took place during the Church of England’s general synod meeting which began Friday. England’s bishops voted 30-2 in favor of the services, which clergymen said would help those who “suffer from transphobia,” the BBC reported Sunday.

The vote called the House of Bishops “to consider providing some nationally commended liturgical materials which may be used in parish churches and chaplaincies to provide a pastoral response to the need of transgender people to be affirmed following their long, distressing, and often complex process of transition.”

--------------------

So ... we aren't to judge those outside the Church? Meh, but ok.

Any thoughts on what, if any, responsibilities we have in regards to internal cleansing? Some point, any point, at which the response is "oh, you are claiming to be part of the Church, be ye now judged".

@ Curious Bartertown!

Hi there again and it is good to just throw out these modern day heretics in turned around collars.  These white washed tombs, filled with dead men's bones, have been here from the beginning, men and women in costume. Matthew 23 would be a good place to start for study.     In your article above we see:

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

The synod also voted Saturday to ban conversion therapy for LGBT Christians, arguing that the Bible does not condemn gender transition or homosexuality.

“As the world listens to us, the world needs to hear us say that LGBT orientation and identity is not a crime,” said the Archbishop of York, Dr. John Sentamu. “LGBT orientation and identity is not a sickness. And LGBT orientation and identity is not a sin.”

Clergy members voted 127-28 in favor of the changes, and the general congregation members voted 127-48.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Where was the archbishop, over the last 40 years, as we cast demons out of the perverts, the demons screaming as they departed?  A blind steeple house system, departing from the scriptures and the Lord, long ago, setting up their camps in Sodom and every other location which follows the pathway to hell.  Doubly dead, lacking Light and Life, void of repentance forgetting to seek ye first the Kingdom of God and His Righteousness.  

You say:

So ... we aren't to judge those outside the Church? Meh, but ok.

Yes, this is still true.  This is where we must come back to a thousand scripture and posts on the forum, over the years.  First, who is the Church?   It is not a building on the corner nor a divided denominational system of divided men.  The Church is the people, the called out ones, those who have repented and received Christ within, the House of God, the Living Stones, and those who follow Him where ever He goes. 

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

You say:

Any thoughts on what, if any, responsibilities we have in regards to internal cleansing? Some point, any point, at which the response is "oh, you are claiming to be part of the Church, be ye now judged".

The problem always comes forth when we confront big sin within the so called believer.  We have been in those private meetings, many times over the decades.  We first ask: "are you a Christian and a follower of Christ".  They usually say yes.  We ask if the sin which they are involved in is true.  It is almost always yes.  We ask them to repent and come out of the sin and to be restored into fellowship.  They almost always say NO!    We disfellowship them and do not even eat with such a person, ever. This is another reason that we need biblical elders in the local house Church not blinded clergy. 

So, what do we do when another steeple house sheep tells us of their folly, like the above example?   He may say that we both are believers, that we both go to s.h.'s, have joined our divided systems, pay our tithes, submitted to our blinded man made clergy and we are just "brothers in the Lord".  This is where we begin the problems and we have been here many times.  This is where we say:  "Well, if you think I would have communion in your steeple house, filled with those who have never repented of their sin, never followed the teachings of Jesus and His apostles, then you are really blind and I am not your brother in the Lord.  You need to repent of your sins, ask Christ to enter within, depart from your wicked ways and walk in the Light as He is in the Light.  

You say again, "what, if any, responsibilities we have in regards to internal cleansing" and our responsibility is GREAT.  It is easy to say nothing and to be a friend of the lost world.

I could type on this for an hour and would only just start.  So, IRB, why not jump in a plane, fly to Seattle, I will pick you up and we could talk these things out while it is still today.    Thanks again, Jim.

Hey Bartertown

I see you are on the forums.  I cannot PM you since you do not have access.  So here is my thoughts:  Instead of flying to Seattle, set up a Skype time that several people could be on at the same time (I am sure there is a way to do that, I'm not a tech. person), we could discuss the issues of discipline within the Church and its great importance for the New Testament believers.  Oh what a great time to gather with many.   Jim

Hi Jim

Sorry, I leave it logged in until it logs itself out, so I guess it looks like I'm active when I'm not.

I don't have Skype. But I am encouraged by the fact that whatever we're planning can't be discussed publicly laugh.

Just joking. Kind of.

Back at Bartertown!

Well then, Skype will not work for us.  Therefor, I have a few thoughts to share with you:

In the early days, the old men said to get involved in the local assemblies and that is the only way to see some change.  Well, that did not work.  I could see early on that what they proclaimed as "the church" did not match the scriptures, not even close.

Therefor, decades of searching the scriptures, reading books on Church History, seeing the folly of the divided blind clergy, and everyone teaching something different on the same bible verses,  well this which we have is NOT THAT.  We found patches of believers, around the globe, who were true followers of the Lord and followed the N.T. teachings of His apostles, but they were a small minority.  They were the ones who had repented of their man made divisions, thrown off their man made priestly robes and turned around collars, and began to be true witnesses for Christ.  Oh what a blessing.

Some days I think about gathering a few elders from different cities and meeting with them.  Travel the nation, like before, and help them to prepare for what is coming.  Only a dream, for who would come? Then we have this T.O.F. forum and I have been here for many years and even on the old site.  Now, there is little participation and there may be little that is actually helping others.  I know that my subscription runs out in the middle of next month and it may be a great time to move onward.  It may be that there are others who will fill the gap and present some great truths within this forum.  There are many good people on these sites and several have contacted my privately and they have my e-mail.  We will do what we can while it is still today.  Jim

Did You Know

that you could order a Geneva Bible  for $45?

http://greatsite.com/facsimile-reproductions/geneva-1560.html

However, even this version has some issues.   This is why the Living Word must be within the believer.

There are Keys to the Kingdom

And happy is he whom the Lord has given a Key.  Are we really prepared to see Him?  

 We have listened to the date setters for decades.  I even remember, back in the '70's, the local assembly was ready to be raptured any day. Over time, I would think, "they better start praying that there is not a rapture coming soon, for their assembly is filled with pew setters, many living in the same kind of sin as the world". The five foolish virgins were shocked for sure, for they could not enter even though they believed in and was waiting for the Bridegroom.  

 There is a huge amount of speculation over the coming Sept. 23rd. date this year.  Speculation from within the assemblies and even from those star gazers, outside of the systems. I surly do not want to creat any divisions over our view, however, from our viewing platform, there will be many disappointed people on the following day, Sept. 24th and a new wave of speculators and their views will spring forth again.  When these continual dates pass by again, it helps to destroy our witness to the world. 

Having the correct timing will not save anyone. Being wrong about the timing is not what will make a person into a foolish virgin.  Doing what He has called us to do, when He returns, is more valuable than gold.

This again reminds me of an old story from about 40 years ago:   We were at a men's Christian camp with about 1000 men.  The speaker came to the front, we sat silent, and he looked out over these dozens of differing steeple house members and said:  "You do not have enough Power, in your lives, to cast a demon out of a pet squirrel."   You could hear a pen drop, it was silent and we knew he was correct.  What has changed over the last 40 years?   NOTHING!    Jim

We have learned

over the many years, that few are moved to repentance via warning about a date of His return.  One thing I have seen, multitudes of times, is to feel the move of the Spirit and walk up to someone and say:  "You need Jesus and you need Him desperately, even right now."  Many will cry, even men, asking for help and this is where we must stand in the gap for "whosoever will call upon the Name of the Lord".  This is what Mark 16:15 is about, this is what making disciples is about, this is meeting the internal need of a lost world is about.  The enemy will get us to travel down any good sounding doctrine as long as it is not Freedom from sin and receiving Christ within.

@IRB

those "churches" are simply corrupt, like the rest of society, who are without God. They can deny the Word, but the Word will judge them (John 12:48) on the last day. You don't have to judge them, they are condemning themselves, and anyone who follows them (Matt 12:36-37, 1 Cor 4:5).

See also Acts 20:29-30.

Most non Christians have no clue what the "judge not others so you are not judged" verse really means, even though they think they do, and then they throw that verse in the face of any Christian (or anyone really) who is trying to help. It is NOT judging others when you are showing them how their beliefs, actions and teachings are in contradiction to the Scripture.

In fact, it is the obligation of every Christian (Ezekiel 3:17-18, Acts 20:26-27) to warn them, so that they may turn away from the path of eternal destruction, out of loving concern for them (James 5:20).  However, if they do not listen, see Matt 10:14.

As for the "leaders" of said "churches", woe to you (James 3:1, Matt 18:6-9, Matt 26:24).

To Our Shame,

we should have learned this long ago, and yet Sunday morning is coming.  Take the time to view this video and never say we were never informed.    Jim

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

2 Cor. 

16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.

18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.

The Dysfunctional Assembly - Awaken!

 I do not know the man in the video or this one I am posting:

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

However, it is quite refreshing to have such a young man who understands the New Testament, our Covenant in His Blood, the Church and he sees what the 99% do not see.  He will not be a special speaker on TBN or at a mega-system but an outcast, except for the Assembly of those who are Seekers of His Kingdom.

It has just amazed me over the years.  I was always told to read my bible as everyone else was reading theirs.  The N.T. was very clear as to the operation of the Church, how it was to meet, the elders, having no divisions or sects, the gifts of the Spirit to the Church (the people), etc. .   Then, I would see that the local assemblies did not do anything that the scriptures instructed, which they read, but had slipped back into the structure of the old covenant, having denied the finished work of the Cross.  OH WHAT GREAT BLINDNESS, MAKING US ENEMIES OF THE CROSS!

I do have a confession for those who believe. There are times, like today, when my flaming keyboard wants to give an end times warning to the steeple house assemblies, while there is still some time.  This is dangerous ground.  There is a fine line to cross when one sees the Truth, having received it by His Spirit and stepping across that line and delivering it to the brethren who are bound upon their traditions.  

All of us have been given gifts for the Church (Eph. 4) but the 99% have hidden their talents under their tents.  Others have robbed us of our callings. Anyone who comes forth, within their steeple house assembly, is seen as a threat to the blinded leadership and is not welcome.  

My grandfathers first name was Church!  Yep, everyone called him Church.  I remember when he would take me to a tavern, buy me a coke and he would get drunk.  Some times he would pass out on the way home and just sleep in the bushes until he could walk again.      That is what it is like today for a divided system, drunk on the wine of the enemy, sleeping in the bushes, hoping that they will enter the Kingdom.  Jim

On Church Divisions/Disharmony

"First, the rise of schisms within the body of Christ becomes a means of highlighting a person’s reverence for the value of truth, and his ability to discern such. Truth is so important that it must be obtained and defended no matter what the cost. “Buy the truth and sell it not,” was the motto of an inspired writer (Proverbs 23:23)..."

On "judging" vs telling the truth (to other brothers/churches)

https://www.christiancourier.com/articles/1183-how-to-go-to-heaven-sincere-but-wrong

"Some may object to this review, saying that it is neither friendly nor loving. But Paul asked on one occasion, “So then am I become your enemy because I tell you the truth?” (Gal. 4:16). The loving thing to do is to tell the truth. We must not judge people superficially or hypocritically (Mt. 7:1), but we are required by God to evaluate what we hear, “handling aright the word of truth” (2 Tim. 2:15). The truth will set us free; error will cause us to be lost (Jn. 8:32; 2 Tim. 2:18)..."

The "battle" of Armageddon

For those who are still open to truth (astoundingly rare, especially on this subject)  and rejects the myths, wild speculations, romances, fantasies of man and utter rubbish nonsense of atheists, agnostics, political and nationalized propaganda agents, ignorant Christians and Zionists, and "left behind" fiction books, and so-called "Christian" Hollywood movies, this is the correct read for (the battle of) "Armageddon':

https://www.christiancourier.com/articles/631-armageddon-the-next-of-the-left-behind-series

May your eyes finally be opened to truth, and shut to FALSE RUBBISH SPOUTED BY NEARLY EVERYONE on this. Please remember and be aware that ANYONE who is not a Christian and also completely and fully in the Spirit and who is trying to "explain" the book of Revelation to you will be 100% wrong. Additionally, I can count on one hand the number of "Christian" Pastors today who correctly understand the book of Revelation.

Remember James 3:1. 

And remember, the gospel will be preached to the whole world, and then the end (Will come). Period. That's it!!! THERE IS NO MORE!! (E.g. There is no 'The" anti-Christ, no "the" 666 mark of the beast, no "earthly" Zionist "Millenium", no "7 year tribulation", etc etc yet to come!).

And it will come when most are not expecting it, like a thief in the night, without ANY warning or signs or anything, except the Lord Jesus Christ appearing in the clouds for all to see.

Be not deceived. This is the voice of one crying out in the wilderness.

Sabaoth of Lord God

Does the title not sound right? Rightfully so, the reference is generally Lord God of Sabaoth.

"Lord of Hosts; and we are to understand the word hosts in the most comprehensive sense, as including the host of heaven, the angels and minister of the Lord; the stars and planets, which, as an army ranged in battle array, perform the will of God; the armies of earth"

"It may designate Jehovah as either (1) God of the armies of earth, or (2) God of the armies of the stars, or (3) God of the unseen armies of angels; or perhaps it may include all these ideas. "

Does He form them up from nothing, a state of complete disconnect, detachment, and apathy? Or has he already commanded them to be ready? Has he already commanded YOU and ME? Was that command to smugly sit back and discuss how far we are above worldly things (like immense suffering and working to stop it).  Or something else?

https://cambriawillnotyield.wordpress.com/2017/07/15/hell-on-earth/

Hell on Earth

"It’s worth noting that the hard-left rioters in Germany proclaimed “Welcome to hell.” That is the essence of liberalism. It starts out as a utopian movement to build heaven on earth, but the utopian heaven of the liberals is a world of negro worship, legalized abortion, legalized sodomy and the glorification of every abomination under the sun. It is pure hell. And when there is no visible resistance, the final generation of liberals removes the mask and makes explicit what was always implicit — at the heart of Liberaldom is hell.

In Hawthorne’s short story “The Celestial Railroad,” an intellectual Christian decides to take a trip to the Celestial City on a celestial railroad built by “Mr. Smooth-it-away”:

who, though he had never actually visited the Celestial City, yet seemed as well acquainted with its laws, customs, policy, and statistics, as with those of the City of Destruction, of which he was a native townsman. Being, moreover, a director of the railroad corporation and one of its largest stockholders, he had it in his power to give me all desirable information respecting that praiseworthy enterprise.

Yes, that’s it precisely. With the sanction of intellectual Christians, Christians who have not circumscribed their hearts, the devil’s minions build hell in the name of heaven.

The intellectual Christian Everyman travels along on the Celestial Railroad while avoiding the pitfalls – at least according to Mr. Smooth-it-away, of an excessive passion – the love of God and the hatred of Satan:

“Where is Mr. Greatheart?” inquired I. “Beyond a doubt the directors have engaged that famous old champion to be the chief conductor on the railroad?”

“Why, no,” said Mr. Smooth-it-away, with a dry cough. “He was offered the situation of brakeman; but, to tell you the truth, our friend Greatheart has grown preposterously stiff and narrow in his old age. He has so often guided pilgrims over the road on foot that he considers it a sin to travel in any other fashion. Besides, the old fellow had entered so heartily into the ancient feud with Prince Beelzebub that he would have been perpetually at blows or ill language with some of the prince’s subjects, and thus have embroiled us anew. So, on the whole, we were not sorry when honest Greatheart went off to the Celestial City in a huff and left us at liberty to choose a more suitable and accommodating man.”

Need I go on? The “more suitable” man is, “Apollyon, Christian’s old enemy.” And the new Christian Everyman, the Christian without a heart, thinks that is wonderful –

“Bravo, bravo!” exclaimed I, with irrepressible enthusiasm; “this shows the liberality of the age; this proves, if anything can, that all musty prejudices are in a fair way to be obliterated. And how will Christian rejoice to hear of this happy transformation of his old antagonist! I promise myself great pleasure in informing him of it when we reach the Celestial City.”

And what happens when the train reaches the Celestial City?

And then did my excellent friend Mr. Smooth-it-away laugh outright, in the midst of which cachinnation a smoke-wreath issued from his mouth and nostrils, while a twinkle of lurid flame darted out of either eye, proving indubitably that his heart was all of a red blaze. The impudent fiend! To deny the existence of Tophet, when he felt its fiery tortures raging within his breast. I rushed to the side of the boat, intending to fling myself on shore; but the wheels, as they began their revolutions, threw a dash of spray over me so cold—so deadly cold, with the chill that will never leave those waters until Death be drowned in his own river-

Hawthorne’s traveler awakes to discover it was all a dream. But we, the European people, have made that dream a reality. We have turned Christian Europe into the citadel of Satan. The construction process started with the clerical-liaison men, the Mr. Smooth-it-away men, who built the bridge linking Christian Europe and Satan’s Europe. And thus the terrible fusionist movement began, in which we were enjoined to divest ourselves of “prejudices” of every kind – our prejudices against race mixing, against sodomy, against Islam, against Jewry, and against sexual Babylon.

That is the essence of liberalism: “Welcome to hell.” They have already brought hell upon us. It is not a perfect hell – that will come in the hereafter – but our modern, liberal-forged world is a very close approximation to the eternal hell of the damned. If a man adheres to their world, if he gives internal assent to the principalities and powers of this modern world, he will go with Mr. Smooth-it-away to the kingdom of eternal night without feeling that he has passed from one world to another. And that is tragedy, that a man created in the image of God can be completely comfortable in the realm of Satan.

The liberals say they have arrived at a better place, this new Europe, but they have created a world that even they, the happy ones, cannot live in. Why is drug use, suicide, and alcoholism increasing in the liberals’ happy new world? Perhaps this flight from Christ is not such a wonderful panacea after all? The liberals must enforce superficiality if they are to maintain the kingdom of hell on earth, because it is only those who live in an abstract, superficial world that can maintain the fantastical delusion that we are better off without the Man of Sorrows. Our Lord is not welcome at the liberals’ wedding feast, because He brings His death on the cross to every feast He attends. Who needs that death? We all do; without His death on the cross, there can be no wedding feast. His death brings us life, it brings us into a world of faith, hope, and charity. Outside of that world there is no reason to celebrate anything.

And yet the liberals do celebrate. They celebrate death, the death of all things European and Christian. Why do they hiss and spew venom any time a man or woman in public life says anything good about old Europe? Why do they cheer and applaud whenever a new right is signed into law for the feminists, the black barbarians, the sodomites, or the Moslems? They celebrate because they are the devil’s own. They love what he loves. Do you think for one moment that the liberals and the colored heathen will be democratically persuaded to give up their assault on the white race and the traditional God of the white race? No, they won’t. What Antonio said of Shylock can be said of the whole legion of modern liberals:

I pray you, think you question with the Jew.
You may as well go stand upon the beach
And bid the main flood bate his usual height;
You may as well use question with the wolf,
Why he hath made the ewe bleat for the lamb;
You may as well forbid the mountain pines
To wag their high tops, and to make no noise,
When they are fretten with the gusts of heaven;
You may as well do anything most hard,
As seek to soften that — than which what’s harder?–
His Jewish heart.

The “Welcome to hell” riots in Germany... signals the end of the ‘silken glove’ seduction of the Europeans. The ‘iron fist’ era has begun, because the liberals do not see any signs of life in the European people. They have no blood faith, because they have been defeated in the intellectual arena. They have accepted the scientific attack on Christ, and that acceptance has left them naked to their enemies. Until they see with their hearts and realize that the liberals’ ‘smartness’ is superficial blather they will remain a bovine race grazing in the fields of modernity until it is their turn to be slaughtered.

Revolutions succeed when those in authority start to believe the propaganda of the revolutionaries. The churchmen of Europe thought they could improve the Gospel of Christ to make it more compatible with the mind-forged philosophies of men. They kept retreating before the innovators and the destroyers until there was nothing left of Christianity – the church of Christ was consumed by the liberal leviathan. But was that church, the church that has become the church of organized Jewry, the Church of Christ? St. Paul says that it is not. He believed that the Church of Christ was in the hearts of men and women who believed that the foolishness of God was wiser than the wisdom of men. And the antique Europeans believed as St. Paul believed. Shakespeare has Mark Antony ask the Roman commoners, “What cause withholds you now to mourn for him?“ For what cause do we refuse to mourn for Him who is greater than Caesar?

Europeans live in exile in their own nations. We owe no allegiance to the liberal-barbarian mix that rules the formerly Christian European nations.

I have not discussed specific tactical issues about this war that we are not fighting, because I think that individual Europeans in their own nations can come up with the best military strategies for their country. But I do believe that there is now only one option for the exiled Europeans, and that is the military option. What else can you do with a people who bring you hell?"

" Even in the Christian age, the inspired Paul would announce that God determines the nations’ “appointed seasons” (i.e., the duration of their existence) and the “bounds of their habitation” (the extent of their conquests) (cf. Acts 17:26). "

" The fact of the matter is simply this: when the wickedness of a people drops to a certain level on the Lord’s moral “barometer,” he will terminate their prosperity. "

Not encouraging for America. I know some would argue that America's wickedness is in the future ... that it will one day abandon the country known politically as Israel to whatever fate it has sown for itself. I think America's wickedness is ongoing  ... having abandoned spiritual Israel.

Psalm 37

Verse 13 is of note. The Lord knows His day is coming!

Security of Those Who Trust in the Lord, and Insecurity of the Wicked.

A Psalm of David.

37 Do not fret because of evildoers,
Be not envious toward wrongdoers.
2 For they will wither quickly like the grass
And fade like the green herb.
3 Trust in the Lord and do good;
Dwell in the land and cultivate faithfulness.
4 Delight yourself in the Lord;
And He will give you the desires of your heart.
5 Commit your way to the Lord,
Trust also in Him, and He will do it.
6 He will bring forth your righteousness as the light
And your judgment as the noonday.

7 Rest in the Lord and wait patiently for Him;
Do not fret because of him who prospers in his way,
Because of the man who carries out wicked schemes.
8 Cease from anger and forsake wrath;
Do not fret; it leads only to evildoing.
9 For evildoers will be cut off,
But those who wait for the Lord, they will inherit the land.
10 Yet a little while and the wicked man will be no more;
And you will look carefully for his place and he will not be there.
11 But the humble will inherit the land
And will delight themselves in abundant prosperity.

12 The wicked plots against the righteous
And gnashes at him with his teeth.
13 The Lord laughs at him,
For He sees his day is coming.
14 The wicked have drawn the sword and bent their bow
To cast down the afflicted and the needy,
To slay those who are upright in conduct.
15 Their sword will enter their own heart,
And their bows will be broken.

16 Better is the little of the righteous
Than the abundance of many wicked.
17 For the arms of the wicked will be broken,
But the Lord sustains the righteous.
18 The Lord knows the days of the blameless,
And their inheritance will be forever.
19 They will not be ashamed in the time of evil,
And in the days of famine they will have abundance.
20 But the wicked will perish;
And the enemies of the Lord will be like the glory of the pastures,
They vanish—like smoke they vanish away.
21 The wicked borrows and does not pay back,
But the righteous is gracious and gives.
22 For those blessed by Him will inherit the land,
But those cursed by Him will be cut off.

23 The steps of a man are established by the Lord,
And He delights in his way.
24 When he falls, he will not be hurled headlong,
Because the Lord is the One who holds his hand.
25 I have been young and now I am old,
Yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken
Or his descendants begging bread.
26 All day long he is gracious and lends,
And his descendants are a blessing.

27 Depart from evil and do good,
So you will abide forever.
28 For the Lord loves justice
And does not forsake His godly ones;
They are preserved forever,
But the descendants of the wicked will be cut off.
29 The righteous will inherit the land
And dwell in it forever.
30 The mouth of the righteous utters wisdom,
And his tongue speaks justice.
31 The law of his God is in his heart;
His steps do not slip.
32 The wicked spies upon the righteous
And seeks to kill him.
33 The Lord will not leave him in his hand
Or let him be condemned when he is judged.
34 Wait for the Lord and keep His way,
And He will exalt you to inherit the land;
When the wicked are cut off, you will see it.

35 I have seen a wicked, violent man
Spreading himself like a luxuriant tree in its native soil.
36 Then he passed away, and lo, he was no more;
I sought for him, but he could not be found.
37 Mark the blameless man, and behold the upright;
For the man of peace will have a posterity.
38 But transgressors will be altogether destroyed;
The posterity of the wicked will be cut off.
39 But the salvation of the righteous is from the Lord;
He is their strength in time of trouble.
40 The Lord helps them and delivers them;
He delivers them from the wicked and saves them,
Because they take refuge in Him.
