A Blessed Nation

Psa 33:11 The counsel of the LORD standeth for ever, the thoughts of his heart to all generations.
Psa 33:12 Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance.

What two nations were founded on trust in God? What two nations do the Islamics hate the most? Yes, Israel and the United States. Now I ask you, if we throw out our God and start acting like his enemies, what do you think might happen? Will our enemies like us more? No, they will use our weakness to defeat us. If we really believe "In God We Trust", then we really will honor and trust God. God loved Israel first and has a covenant with that nation. He has no covenant with the United States but with those who believe and are in Jesus Christ does he have a covenant relationship. There are promises of blessings and curses depending on what a nation believes and does about Israel. The LORD prophesied a blessing through Abraham to a nation; Israel.

Gen 12:2 And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:
Gen 12:3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.

The Muslims claim the promise was through Ishmael, but the Spirit born son of the promise was Isaac who gave the blessing on Jacob who would be named Israel. This prophecy applies to the nation of Israel.

Gen 27:29 Let people serve thee, and nations bow down to thee: be lord over thy brethren, and let thy mother's sons bow down to thee: cursed be every one that curseth thee, and blessed be he that blesseth thee.

Moses blessed the children of Israel

Deu 33:29 Happy art thou, O Israel: who is like unto thee, O people saved by the LORD, the shield of thy help, and who is the sword of thy excellency! and thine enemies shall be found liars unto thee; and thou shalt tread upon their high places.

Blessings on those who honor Israel and curses on them who curse Israel. The United States is not mentioned in the Bible in the last days, but Israel is prominent in the plans of God. To them was said:

Rom 11:29 For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance.

Even those in the nation of Israel must believe in Jesus as their Messiah. Those who believe and are saved are the Spiritual children of Abraham and the adopted children of God. God's blessings are on Israel and on those who trust in Jesus for salvation. In Him are all one in Christ and we are the family of God.

Luke 1:47 And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.

Here it is, THE verse that clearly states that GOD is our Saviour, and that is Jesus.

Yeah a Blessed Nation is one that follows Christ the Saviour!
