A Prophecy for America
Inspired by the Biblical Book of Isaiah 1

THE VISION OF STEVEN, THE SON OF GEORGE, which he saw concerning America in the days of Ronald Reagan, President of the United States.

Hear, O heavens and give ear, O earth: for the LORD has spoken, I have nourished and brought up children and they have rebelled against me. The ox knows his owner and the ass his master's crib: but America does not know, my people does not consider. Ah sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a seed of evildoers, children that are corrupters: they have forsaken the LORD, they have provoked the Holy One to anger, they are gone away backward. Why should you be stricken any more? You will revolt more and more: the whole head is sick, and the whole heart faint. From the sole of the foot even unto the head there is no soundness in America; but wounds and bruises and putrifying sores: they have not been closed, neither bound up, neither mollified with ointment. America will become desolate, her cities will be burned with fire and strangers will devour the land and it will become desolate as overthrown by strangers. And the daughter of America will be left as a cottage in a vineyard, as a lodge in a garden of cucumbers, as a besieged city. Except the LORD of hosts should leave unto us a very small remnant, we will become as Sodom and we will become like Gomorrah.

Hear the word of the LORD you rulers of America; give ear unto the law of our God. To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices unto me? says the LORD: I am full of what you do in my name. When you come to appear before me, who has given you authority to do what you do in my name, to tread my courts? Bring no more vain oblations; your prayers are an abomination unto me; your religious celebrations and church going, the calling of assemblies, I can no longer tolerate...it is iniquity. Your religious celebrations my soul hates: they are a trouble to me and I am weary to bear them. And when you spread forth your hands, I will hide my eyes from you: when you make many prayers, I will not hear: your hands are full of iniquity.

Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before my eyes; cease to do evil; learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow. Come now and let us reason together, says the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. If you be willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land: But if you continue to refuse and rebel, you will be devoured with the sword: for the mouth of the LORD has spoken it.

How is America become an harlot?

She is full of judgment; righteousness use to lodge in her; but now murderers and all manner of unrighteousness. America's economy is in great trouble; the cost of living is soaring. The congress, senate, President, and leaders are rebellious and companions of thieves: every one loves gifts, and follows after rewards: they judge not the fatherless, neither does the cause of the widow come before them. Therefore says the Lord, the LORD of hosts, the mighty One of America, Ah, I will ease me of my adversaries and avenge me of my enemies: I will turn my hand upon you and purely purge away your dross and take away all your sin.

America! America!

You can still turn God's judgment from you, if you would repent and return to God. Return, America, to your Christian heritage and let God be glorified throughout your land.
