Sexuality Gone Wrong
2 Chronicles 36; 1 Corinthians 6
As we continue thinking about THE UNRAVELING OF THE AMERICAN DREAM, take God's Word and turn with me 1 Corinthians 6. And once you find it, put a marker there for that's where we're going to be in a few minutes. But before we get there, look with me to 2 Chronicles 36.
What is hurting America today is the high cost of low living.
Now America is not the first nation to experience low living. During the time Solomon reigned, the moral unraveling become so bad that God raised up the people of Babylon to destroy the city of Jerusalem. And its here in the last chapter of 2 Chronicles we find what the children of Israel did to exhaust the patience of God. Learn this: there is a limit to God's patience! There is an unseen line that can be crossed where God's patience ends.
In 2 Chronicles 36, you're going to think that you're reading about America, but what you're really reading about is what caused the unraveling of the nation of Israel and unleashed the judgment of God. And what is troubling to me is the similarities we see taking place upon our shores.
Let's begin reading in 2 Chronicles 36.11-13, "11 Zedekiah was twenty-one years old when he became king, and he reigned eleven years in Jerusalem. 12 He did evil in the sight of the LORD his God, and did not humble himself before Jeremiah the prophet, who spoke from the mouth of the LORD. 13 And he also rebelled against King Nebuchadnezzar, who had made him swear an oath by God; but he stiffened his neck and hardened his heart against turning to the LORD God of Israel."
Plain and simple: they forgot the LORD. God wasn't on their radar! They had dug their heals in against God and refused to turn to Him. May I tell you that the main reason for the unraveling of the American dream is that we, like the children of Israel, have forgotten the LORD. We fear man more than we fear God or we wouldn't be legalizing sin!
