I will sing for the one I love a song about his vineyard: My loved one had a vineyard on a fertile hillside. He dug it up and cleared it of stones and planted it with the choicest vines. He built a watchtower in it and cut out a winepress as well. Then he looked for a crop of good grapes, but it yielded only bad fruit. Isaiah 5:1-2
This parable is about the nation of Israel, God gave them everything they needed to have a thriving and prosperous life. He gave them land, food, water, and protection. Yet the Israelites not only didn’t appreciate anything God gave them , they forgot about him all together and worshipped false idols.
Doesn’t this sound familiar in America? We were the strongest and prosperous nation in the world. But we turned our backs on God, we removed him from all our schools and public buildings. We decided not to follow his commandments anymore. History repeats itself, the fate of Israel will be the same fate for America
Now you dwellers in Jerusalem and people of Judah, judge between me and my vineyard. What more could have been done for my vineyard than I have done for it? When I looked for good grapes, why did it yield only bad? Isaiah 5:3-4
God wants to know what more could he have done for Israel? He gave them unlimited water in the dry desert. He delivered bread (mana) from the sky when they had no food. He crushed every enemy that tried to overtake Israel.
Same with America, what more could God have given to this nation? He gave us prosperity and wealth beyond every nation. He provided us with beautiful farmlands and lakes. He crushed all the other world powers including Germany and Russia when they tried to take over the world. Why did we decide we didn’t need God anymore?
Now I will tell you what I am going to do to my vineyard: I will take away its hedge, and it will be destroyed; I will break down its wall, and it will be trampled. I will make it a wasteland, neither pruned nor cultivated, and briers and thorns will grow there. I will command the clouds not to rain on it.” Isaiah 5:5-6
God is a just God, if we turn our back on him he is going to turn his back on us. Just like he did to Israel he allowed famine through the land, he stopped the rain, he allowed there enemies to overtake Israel and destroy there nation.
The same is happening to America, don’t think 9/11 just happened by mistake. Don’t think the stock market crash seven years ago was a mistake, both of these events happened on the last two Shemitah years. If you don’t know what that is I suggest you read a book by Jonathan Cahn called The Harbinger or The Four Blood Moons by John Hagee
The vineyard of the LORD Almighty is the nation of Israel, and the people of Judah are the vines he delighted in. And he looked for justice, but saw bloodshed; for righteousness, but heard cries of distress. Isaiah 5:7
It’s very simple, just like Israel, return to God and he will return to us. But turn our back on God and he will make our nation a wasteland. Don’t bite the hand that feeds, follow and trust in The Lord in Jesus Name Amen
