Through the Prophet Jeremiah, God asks a question that is still pertinent for our nation today. He asks, “Has a nation changed its gods, which are not gods?”

Today is election day in the United States of America. It is an all important election that is going to determine whether or not this great nation will continue to be a blessed nation under God, or if the hand of God’s protection will lift off of it.

The Lord is sending words of warning to His people through many different prophets. Will His people head His voice?

Let’s read the Scriptures from both the Old and the New Testaments as to what the Lord has to say concerning this matter. For further understanding you can read the first chapter of DARE to Believe for free.

“Has a nation changed its gods, which are not gods? But My people have changed their Glory for what does not profit. Be astonished, O heavens, at this, and be horribly afraid; be very desolate,” says the Lord. “For My people have committed two evils: They have forsaken Me, the fountain of living waters, and hewn themselves cisterns– broken cisterns that can hold no water. …Saying to a tree ‘You are my father,’ and to a stone, ‘You gave birth to me.’ 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.’ But where are your gods that you have made for yourselves? Let them arise, if they can save you in the time of your trouble; for according to the number of your cities are your gods, O Judah” (Jeremiah 2:11-13, 27-28).

“They made a calf in Horeb, and worshiped the molded image. Thus they changed their glory into the image of an ox that eats grass” (Psalm 106:19-20).

“For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, because although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, or were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man–and birds and four-footed beasts and creeping things.  Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies, among themselves, who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature, rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen” (Romans 1: 20-25).

United States of America, have you changed your God? Have you exchanged your Glory for that which does not profit?
