God made a covenant with His creation:

With Adam, Noah, Abram [Abraham] and with David - a promise of blessings for obedience and curses for disobedience.

But the people of God rebelled against God, forgetting His loving kindness, His covenant promises…

“They kept not the covenant of God, and refused to walk in his law…” Psalm 78:10

Forfeiting His blessings they endured the crushing blows of His judgment for their disobedience…

After four hundred years of slavery in Egypt, God raised up a deliverer. Moses led the Israelites out of Egypt through the power of God - and for forty years they wandered in the wilderness due to their rebellion and disobedience before entering the land promised to Abraham. The Israelites would lose control of the land many times due to spiritual disobedience until 1967, almost 2,000 years.

“Wherefore the LORD God of Israel saith, I said indeed that thy house, and the house of thy father, should walk before me forever: but now the LORD saith, Be it far from me; for them that honor me I will honor, and they that despise me shall be lightly esteemed.” 1 Samuel 2:30

And still Israel does not walk before their God in holiness with honor - and for their disobedience they continue to fight for peace and possession of The Land. But, Israel was appointed to be a light to the nations. Her future is guaranteed, in spite of past failures.

“They are Israelites, and to them belong the sonship, the glory, the covenants, the giving of the law, the worship, and the promises; to them belong the patriarchs, and of their race, according to the flesh, is the Christ. God who is over all be blessed for ever. Amen." Romans 9

But, what about America?

Although the New Covenant is a better covenant, superseding any other covenant and making all other covenants obsolete, it still does not invalidate, negate, or annul any other covenant God has ever made with any man.

So, what about America?

Will God allow judgment to come upon His Chosen People for their disobedience and ignore the disobedience of His Bride? I have heard it said: “as the church goes so goes the nation”
God has promised to give Israel the New Covenant and this will happen in the future.

But, what about America?


  1. There is no promise from God - any kind of covenant - to America for anything.

    God's covenant with Christians is only salvation - that's the only PROMISE that He has given Christians. I think God blessed America in the past because it was founded on Judeo-Christian principles, and a majority of the Americans were Christians. This, of course, had most of America practicing a form of godliness, and I think this is why God blessed America. However, the worse the USA gets in falling from God's laws, the more He removes his blessings. And I think that is what we will seeing more and more of as God lets this nation fall to pieces.

  2. Exactly my point, yet far too many American Christians think otherwise.
