The more they increased and multiplied in prosperity and power, the more they sinned against Me; I will change their glory into shame. (Aren't we the wealthiest and most powerful nation on earth? Has it caused us to draw close to God or turn away from Him?)
They feed on the sin of My people and set their heart on their iniquity....(Then the LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great on the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. Gen 6:5. God destroyed man at that time with a flood. Aren't we just like this now?)
For they shall eat and not have enough; they shall play the harlot and beget no increase, because they have forsaken the Lord for harlotry; (harlotry = serving other gods. Isn't it true that no matter how many things or money some people have, they are never satisfied?)
Harlotry and wine and new wine take away the heart and the mind and the spiritual understanding. (Rejecting God and spending your time partying dull your spiritual understanding. I can attest to this personally in my younger years. In whose case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving so that they might not see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. 2 Cor 4:4.)
My people habitually ask counsel of their senseless wood idols, and their staff of wood gives them oracles and instructs them. (Idols are anything we put ahead of God, such as money, power, fame, sex, people, jobs, looks. How many people rely on these things to save them and make them happy?)
For the spirit of harlotry has led them astray and they have played the harlot, withdrawing themselves from subjection to their God.... (We've taken God out of the home, our schools, most churches, and our government)
Therefore the people without understanding shall stumble and fall and come to ruin.
Pray for our country!
