When God Abandons A Nation by John MacArthur

H/T Settled In Heaven. See America Abandoned By God!

Got this idea after I saw the reblog.  Decided to go for longer versions.

~30 minutes

~1 hour

For those who prefer to just listen or read A Nation Abandoned by God and What’s Wrong with America? provide both audio and text.

  1. Maybe I’m missing something here, but John MacArthur is praised for his essay on ‘God abandoning America,’ (which is strong as iron) but then villified for his take on the ‘mark of the beast, by another poster?

    1. End Times Prophecy Report is just a spamming blog. There is enough research to fool a casual reader.

      I marked the last pingback I got from End Times Prophecy Report as spam, but I had not bothered with the two above. I suppose I should have. Sorry if that caused any confusion.

      1. Clear as a bell now, tkx.

        As to the take on the first of Romans, John M. lays out a case for darn near utter hopelessless of the ‘depraved.’ Far be it for me to criticize this great teacher and man of God, and I will not, but the thought occurred to me that such a person is a suitable candidate for the grace of God.

        I realize primarily he is speaking of a ‘nation’ being so far gone that God ‘gave them up,’ and things seem bleak, but hope never fails I suppose, I often wonder as to the limits of God’s patience and kindness in the midst of such blatant disrespect toward Him, and still He calls to whosoever will.

        1. When the prophets spoke for God and predicted how the Jews would be punished, they cried for their people. If when we see our people doing what we know they should not do, I expect God will forgive us for our tears.

          And for some, the discipline will be for the best.

          Hebrews 12:1-11 Good News Translation (GNT)

          12 As for us, we have this large crowd of witnesses around us. So then, let us rid ourselves of everything that gets in the way, and of the sin which holds on to us so tightly, and let us run with determination the race that lies before us. 2 Let us keep our eyes fixed on Jesus, on whom our faith depends from beginning to end. He did not give up because of the cross! On the contrary, because of the joy that was waiting for him, he thought nothing of the disgrace of dying on the cross, and he is now seated at the right side of God’s throne.

          3 Think of what he went through; how he put up with so much hatred from sinners! So do not let yourselves become discouraged and give up. 4 For in your struggle against sin you have not yet had to resist to the point of being killed. 5 Have you forgotten the encouraging words which God speaks to you as his children?

          “My child, pay attention when the Lord corrects you,
          and do not be discouraged when he rebukes you.
          6 Because the Lord corrects everyone he loves,
          and punishes everyone he accepts as a child.”

          7 Endure what you suffer as being a father’s punishment; your suffering shows that God is treating you as his children. Was there ever a child who was not punished by his father? 8 If you are not punished, as all his children are, it means you are not real children, but bastards. 9 In the case of our human fathers, they punished us and we respected them. How much more, then, should we submit to our spiritual Father and live! 10 Our human fathers punished us for a short time, as it seemed right to them; but God does it for our own good, so that we may share his holiness. 11 When we are punished, it seems to us at the time something to make us sad, not glad. Later, however, those who have been disciplined by such punishment reap the peaceful reward of a righteous life.
