2 Chronicles 7:14
Making American Great Again
Y’chizki’el (Ezekiel) 10:6-7--”It came to pass, when he commanded the man clothed in linen, saying, ‘Take fire from between the whirling wheels, from between the cherubim,’ that he went in, and stood beside a wheel. The cherub stretched out his hand from between the cherubim to the fire that was between the cherubim, and took some of it, and put it into the hands of him who was clothed in linen, who took it and went out.”
Make no mistake, I love my country, the United States of America. I am one of [nearly] three hundred twenty-four (324) million American citizens, and I thank Adonai for the freedoms I enjoy as an American citizen. There is a vast distinction between freedoms, rights, and privileges; however, I will not get into those right now. I am as ardent a patriot as is the next American citizen; but, make no mistake, the United States of America will fall and be judged under the wrath of Elohim. And, though, I applaud our president for wanting to “make America great again”, only by bowing her knees and falling prostrate before the throne of grace can America be great again. If America refuses to bow humbly before Elohim, she will suffer the greatest fall of any other nation on this planet.
Many Biblical scholars believe Y’chizki’el’s vision here was for the destruction of Yisra’el by being burned at the hand of Babylon, and, though, Babylon would later destroy the city of Yerushalayim and the Temple, this passage of Y‘chizki’el makes no mention of Babylon. Y’chizki’el must have been absolutely terrified by this vision … the destruction of his homeland and the beautiful city of Yerushalayim, the slaughter of countless thousands of his countrymen, the end of Yisra'el as it had been known for centuries.
Perhaps, Y’chizki’el asked of Elohim, “Did Yisra’el really become so decadent? Did Yerushalayim really stray so far from what You have commanded and decreed?” Y’chizki’el might have wanted to ask such questions; but, he also knew such questions were rhetorical, the questions answered themselves. Not to mention the fact that Y’chizki’el had seen the vision from Elohim with his own eyes.
And, we, Believers, specifically those of us living in such a great nation as the United States of America, must ask, “Has The United States of America become so decadent? Has the United States of America really strayed so far from what Elohim has commanded and decreed? Is the destruction of the United States of America, as we know her to be, happening right before our very eyes?” And like Y’chizki’el, we know such questions are rhetorical, the questions answer themselves. Not to mention the fact that we have seen the answer from Elohim with our own eyes written in Elohim’s Word (the Bible).
Devari Hayamim-Bet (2 Chronicles) 7:14--”If My people, who are called by My Name, will humble themselves, pray, seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways; then I will hear from Heaven, will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
If My people … then I (Elohim) will hear …
If My people … then I (Elohim) will hear …
If My people … citizens of the United States of America, we are His people, we must humble ourselves, we must pray, we must seek His face while there is yet time to do so, and we must turn from our decadence, our greed, our lustful, money-hungry ways
Then I (Elohim) will hear and I (Elohim) will forgive your sins and I (Elohim) will heal your great nation.
Baruch ata, Adonai Eloheinu, melech ha’olam, asher yatzar et ha’adam b’khochmah, u’vara vo nekavim nekavim, chalulim chalulim. Galuy ve’yadua lifnei khisei khevodekha she’im yipateiach echad meihem, ‘o yisateim echad meihem, ‘l efshar le’hitpaiyeim ve’la’amod lefaneykha. Baruch ata, Adonai, rofei khol basar u’mafli la’asot.
Blessed are You, Adonai Eloheinu, King of the universe, Who formed mankind in wisdom and created in him all manner of openings and cavities. It is manifest and known before the throne of Your glory that if any one of them ruptured or were blocked, it would be impossible to survive and stand before You. Blessed are You, Adonai, Who heals all flesh, and is wonderful in His acts.
