"Their deeds will not allow them To return to their God.
For a spirit of harlotry is within them,
And they do not know the LORD."

LIGHT from the WORD.

After Solomon's death, the northern two tribes of Ephraim and
Manasseh rebelled against the united kingdom's choice of
Rehoboam for king (See 1Kings 12:19).
And, they led eight other tribes to form a new nation called
Israel (See 1Kings 12:20).
That was about 931BC.

After that, the new kingdom, Israel, rejected the holy
worship of Jehovah, and mixed it with other idol-worship for
over 200 years.
God had prophesied of this in 1Kings 11:29-38.

Their leaders rejected true worship of God.
Generation after generation, they got so far away from God that
God said, "And they do not KNOW the LORD!"
The generations of children had learned mixed idol worship and
sensual practices.

I'm afraid we have reached a similar problem in America.
Our nation was founded upon Biblical principles,
and a devout worship of ONE God.
Yet, our leaders have repeatedly ignored the Word of
the Lord and His principles of truth!
Generation after generation, we have gotten so far from God,
that I wonder if He says, "..they do not KNOW the LORD!"

Once "a spirit of harlotry" was within Israel,
they would NOT repent and turn to God!
I'm afraid we've reached that same point in America today!

The "spirit of harlotry" fills our nation!
A "gimme" attitude has corrupted our people!
This attitude has become a MAGNET that attracts people AWAY
from God!!
And, without God, people become bitter and negative!

Someone asked me once, "Well, Bro. Bruce -
do you have a solution?"
My answer is, "NO! But GOD has one!! And,
He's ALREADY offered it!!"

The question is, "Will YOU accept God's offer?"

Don't let the nation crumble
because you fumble!

"Draw nigh unto God!"

Love ya!
