  • Lisa Brown for verse 10
    This verse absolutely holds a warning to not just ancient Irael, but present-day America! We were established on God and have rejected him. His hedge of protection has been removed from our borders and we are ignoring His warnings. Our responses continue to be defiance and arrogance. We talk of what WE will do for ourselves, without including Him. Things are going to get very bad here and I 'm afraid it still won 't be enough for us to wake up and bring God back into our nation, our families, our schools, our daily lives, our hearts...
  • We will keep neglecting the calamities and keep ignoring the presence of God in our culture. Ultimately leading to the second coming of Christ.
