With history as our teacher... may God compel us, as a nation, a people, not to continue on our present path of stubborn disobedience, even distain, to Him. Will this describe America?
"But our ancestors were proud and stubborn, and they paid no attention to your commands. They refused to obey and did not remember the miracles you had done for them. Instead, they became stubborn and appointed a leader to take them back to their slavery in Egypt." -- "So now today we are slaves in the land of plenty that you gave our ancestors for their enjoyment! We are slaves here in this good land." (Nehemiah 9:16-17,36)
