Jeremiah said so many things to God's people, Israel, that apply equally to America. He gave us this land, surely flowing with milk and honey, as a place to freely worship and serve Him. More missionaries have come from America to spread His word of salvation throughout the entire world than from any other country. More money is given every year from America for this purpose than from any other country. America did serve the Lord God Almighty, but not any more. Listen to Jeremiah's words from the Lord:
“I remember concerning you the devotion of your youth,
The love of your betrothals,
Your following after Me in the wilderness,
Through a land not sown.
3 “Israel was holy to the LORD,
The first of His harvest.
All who ate of it became guilty;
Evil came upon them,” declares the LORD.’” Jeremiah 2:2,3
“What injustice did your fathers find in Me,
That they went far from Me
And walked after emptiness and became empty?
6 “They did not say, ‘Where is the LORD
Who brought us up out of the land of Egypt,
Who led us through the wilderness,
Through a land of deserts and of pits,
Through a land of drought and of deep darkness,
Through a land that no one crossed
And where no man dwelt?’
7 “I brought you into the fruitful land
To eat its fruit and its good things.
But you came and defiled My land,
And My inheritance you made an abomination.
8 “The priests did not say, ‘Where is the LORD?’
And those who handle the law did not know Me;
The rulers also transgressed against Me,
And the prophets prophesied by Baal
And walked after things that did not profit. 9 “Therefore I will yet contend with you,” declares the LORD,
“And with your sons’ sons I will contend. Jeremiah 2:5-9
Listen to this one closely -
11 “Has a nation changed gods
When they were not gods?
But My people have changed their glory
For that which does not profit.
12 “Be appalled, O heavens, at this,
And shudder, be very desolate,” declares the LORD.
13 “For My people have committed two evils:
They have forsaken Me,
The fountain of living waters,
To hew for themselves cisterns,
That can hold no water. Jeremiah 2:11-13
He is saying they, and we, have abandoned Him, the only true and living God, the one who has given us every good thing and protected and provided for us, to follow and worship false gods, "broken cisterns that can hold no water". Look how America has run after the false religions of the world, those whose gods are not real, have no power and cannot help them after having known God Almighty Himself who loves us and has blessed us over all nations of the world.
"Why has he become a prey?
15 “The young lions have roared at him,
They have roared loudly.
And they have made his land a waste;
His cities have been destroyed, without inhabitant.
17 “Have you not done this to yourself By your forsaking the LORD your God When He led you in the way? " Jeremiah 2:14,15, 17
19 “Your own wickedness will correct you,
And your apostasies will reprove you;
Know therefore and see that it is evil and bitter
For you to forsake the LORD your God" Jeremiah 2:19
"For they have turned their back to Me,
And not their face;
But in the time of their trouble they will say,
‘Arise and save us.’
28 “But where are your gods
Which you made for yourself?
Let them arise, if they can save you
In the time of your trouble" Jeremiah 2:27,28
‘Return, faithless Israel,’ declares the LORD;
‘I will not look upon you in anger.
For I am gracious,’ declares the LORD;
‘I will not be angry forever.
13 ‘Only acknowledge your iniquity,
That you have transgressed against the LORD your God
And have scattered your favors to the strangers under every green tree,
And you have not obeyed My voice,’ declares the LORD.
14 ‘Return, O faithless sons,’ declares the LORD;
‘For I am a master to you" Jeremiah 3:12-14
22 “Return, O faithless sons,
I will heal your faithlessness.”
“Behold, we come to You;
For You are the LORD our God. " Jeremiah 3:22
