Sodom in America!
In fact, I think you will find that there are others since then that are far worse than Sodom and Gomorrah.
[As] I live, saith the Lord GOD, Sodom thy sister hath not done, she nor her daughters, as thou hast done, thou and thy daughters. Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy. Ezekiel 16:48-49
Jerusalem was worse than Sodom because they knew God. They knew what was expected of them and they still strayed from Him.
And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted unto heaven, shalt be brought down to hell: for if the mighty works, which have been done in thee, had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day. But I say unto you, That it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of judgment, than for thee. Matthew 11:23-24
Capernaum was worse than Sodom because they saw the miracles of Jesus and did not believe. Had Sodom seen those miracles they still would have been around today.
Now, what about America?
Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy. Ezekiel 16:48-49
Fullness of bread...
Abundance of idleness...
Did not strengthen the hand of the poor and needy...
Pride -- America the Great. The Greatest nation in the world! No one is our equal. We can do what we want to do.
Fullness of bread -- we are the richest nation. We have it all available to us. We are gluttons in the grandest sense of the word!
Abundance of idleness -- we have now reached a time in America where 51% of America is either unemployed or underemployed. They are all on welfare from the government!
Did not strengthen the hand of the poor and needy -- in fact, our government is causing more and more people to become poor and needy. High paying jobs are no longer around. Foreclosures are higher than ever right now. Gas prices are soaring.
The very things that Sodom and Gomorrah were guilty of originally, are the very things that we Americans are guilty of right now. What was the natural consequence of their actions?
Homosexuality ran rampant in the city!
Starting to sound like America yet to you?
Pray that God has mercy on America. Our nation needs to get back to God and needs to do it quickly.
All I can say is...
He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus. Revelationn 22:20
