Physical uncleanness, sometimes, is the picture of the soul in turmoil. It can indicate depression, sadness, grief and so on. It shows spiritual and emotional problems within. It happens because the person does not want to face reality. In that mode, he becomes blind and insensitive to his surroundings. I don’t care, sort of attitude. In the hardness of his heart, he goes on. That is also a picture of a guilty person, wanted to escape the guilt by making it easy on himself. However, what does the Bible mean by “uncleanness that works destruction”? In the battle of Jericho, the Lord instructed the people to keep themselves from the “accursed and devoted things.” That constituted idolatry. Idolatry is the excessive devotion to or reverence for some person or thing (Webster dictionary). It is a sin that brings destruction to a nation, for forsaking the true God, as it was the case of the nation of Israel. Idolatry is a sin that leads the nation astray to immorality, to confusion and to alienation from the true God. The Lord describes Israel’s spiritual condition by saying, From the sole of the foot even to the head there is no soundness or health in but wounds and bruises and fresh and bleeding stripes; they have not been pressed out and closed up or bound up or softened with oil; your country lies desolate, your cities are burned with fire; your land- strangers devour it in your very presence, and it is desolate, as overthrown by aliens (Isaiah 1:6-7). This seemly is the spiritual condition of the United States of America. Blessed, as it has been, has long time embraced the position of idolatry and gone far away from the Lord’s blessings. Lately, America has speedily experienced spiritual decline of all times, as it waits for the Lord’s judgment to fall upon her.
Considered as the “Mystery Babylon,” America has taken her position of power in the world as it has influenced many countries to follow her ungodly life-style, destroying some that stood in her way. Powerful and proud, she stood tall above all to see; but the time is rapidly approaching for her fate to be known. Her uncleanness is beyond the norm one can understand and accept. Her glamourous life-style is nothing but filthy, rotten rags under all that jazz. Lights, painted eyes, fancy dresses, in Jezebel’s styles, Hollywood crowd, deeply in sin, is under God’s judgment for all that they represent. Judgment from God has already started. Do you see the multitudes invading this country? That’s just the beginning of America’s ordeal. Her uncleanness has reached heavens, God’s longsuffering has ended for this nation. As it were in the days of old when God brought judgment against the nation of Israel, so it will be for America, for God has heard the crying of the innocent children being carried to their slaughter, as He heard the blood of Abel crying for vengeance against his brother. We see, but we do not perceive, we hear, but we do not believe the graveness of the sins of this nation. God’s people are asleep in the pews of the churches, while their children are brainwashed through the teachings of public schools, they trusted their children to. It is all happening right before their eyes, but their spiritual condition keeps them from perceiving. Their babies are taken from their womb for their own freedom and killed for businesses purposes as babies’ body’s parts for the make of makeup. Do you know what kind of meat Macdonald fast food is offering you? Do you think for a minute that God has fallen asleep, not to consider this immoral uncleanness, against them? He who formed the eyes and the ears, will not see and hear? He will have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah if His judgment will not fall to this nation and the world, for following America’s unclean life-style. How can His church escape His judgment, if it continues inert to the sins of this nation? God’s patience is not to be confused with His holiness. The severity of His coming judgment upon this nation should be the reason for His church to be on her knees.
Micah 2:10 says, “Arise and depart, for this is not the rest, because of uncleanness that works destruction, even a sharp and grievous destruction.” We are living in an unclean society. Television, and other media are like a magnet, like gravity, pulling down those who follow them to the pit of infidelity, while they watch the satanic worshippers from Hollywood perform immorality to please their god-the devil. Entwined with them, they become one with them, and before they know it, idolatry in the form of pornography, takes control of their sexual desires, leaving them powerless. As a result, divorce abounds and families are destroyed. God continues calling all out of it before destruction strikes, as He always does and has done in the past “Arise, and depart, for this is not the rest, because of uncleanness that works destruction…” Depart, depart. Go out from there! Touch no unclean thing! Go out of the midst of her [Babylon]; cleanse yourselves and be clean, you who bear the vessels of the Lord (Is. 52:11). What the world is experiencing today is described in Isaiah 64:6: “For we have all become like one who is unclean, and all our righteousness is like filthy rags or polluted garment; we all fade like a leaf, and our iniquities, like the wind, take us away [far from God’s favor, hurrying us toward destruction].” Thus says the Lord: Flee out of the midst of Babylon! Let every man save his life! Let not destruction come upon you through her sin and guilt. For it is the time of the Lord’s vengeance; He will render to her a recompense (Jer. 51:6).
