What The Bible Says
Good Samaritan's Penny Pulpit by Pastor Ed Rice
America was founded on liberty and freedom two-hundred and forty-six years ago. Two-hundred and fifty years after the great Gentile city of Nineveh was reborn in liberty and freedom it had faltered and tasted of Jehovah God's indignation. It was annihilated, laid waste, made a desolation (Nah.2:8, 3:7, Zep.2:13). Nineveh, the capital city of Assyria, stands in Scripture as the representative of apostate religious Gentiledom, as Babylon represents the confusion into which the Gentile political world-system has fallen.1 Indignation is a powerful word; in 1828 Noah Webster called it “extreme anger mingled with abhorance.” It is now America's due.
A hundred years before its destruction Nineveh was told,“God is jealous, and the LORD revengeth; the LORD revengeth, and is furious; the LORD will take vengeance on his adversaries, and he reserveth wrath for his enemies. The LORD is slow to anger, and great in power, and will not at all acquit the wicked: the LORD hath his way in the whirlwind and in the storm, and the clouds are the dust of his feet” (Nah.1:2-3). America is vividly taught all that from twenty-five-hundred years ago when it unfolded just as God said in his holy Scripture. Yet America continues down the same destructive path as Nineveh, a perilous path outlined in Romans 1:21-25.
So what is a born-again, Bible believing Christian to do in these vile and perilous times? Nahum the prophet of God said it, “Behold upon the mountains the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, and publisheth peace” (Nah.1:15a). His contemporary, Isaiah, and the Apostle Paul seven centuries later, called it “publishing salvation” (Isa.52:7,Rom.10:9-15) We need to be about the Father's business, take on beautiful feet, and boldly publish John 3:16-18, and 5:24, with the Romans Road to heaven. Let's get cracken.
