Leviticus 18:25 And the land is defiled: therefore I do visit the iniquity thereof upon it, and the land itself vomiteth out her inhabitants.
One of the curses on a nation for disobedience to the Lord God is exile from the land, “the land vomiteth out her inhabitants”.
So how does that work nowadays?
I did a little bit of word study, using an online Strong’s Concordance and other online references … which send you back to multiple root meanings just as an English dictionary might do … as well as thinking about it, and these are my conclusions. You may not agree, and that’s fine.
1. One way to “vomit” people out of a nation is through war or plague; they die off and are “vomited out”. People can be sent off to war from one nation to another to fight, and when they are removed from the country, killed off.
2. “disgorging” riches … the economy is in a downward trajectory
3. “Fit together, fabricate artificially” … the invasion of multi-nationals who have no historical connection to the United States is an artificial fabrication and “fitting together”. Even though the United States used to have a process of legal immigration which was beneficial to the nation whereby people from other nations legally became citizens, what is currently happening is not that.
It reminds me of Daniel’s vision where the iron and the clay did not cleave together. The illegals are not cleaving to the Constitutional Republic. I know there are those who use this scripture in other considerations, but I have said before that my prophetical trajectory is different than mainstream, and you are welcome to reject my conclusions.
Daniel 2:42 And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken.
43 And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.
44 And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.
Here are some related points.
1. The redemption of Jesus Christ must be received personally.
2. At the forming of the nation of the United States, covenants were made with God. Actually, one of the suggestions for the national seal by Benjamin Franklin was the passing of the children of Israel through the Red Sea. Since individuals are redeemed, and not nations, we are experiencing nationally the consequences of the curse and the broken covenants with the Lord. The whole is the sum of the parts, of many individuals within the nation.
3. If we want better results nationally, the nation needs to be full of individuals who individually serve the Lord.
4. Economically, we are under a curse since the majority of people, including many Christians, do not tithe. Tithing was not part of the law that was eliminated by Jesus Christ. Abraham tithed and Abraham was before Moses who received the law. The law of sacrifices of bulls and sheep and goats was eliminated as Jesus was the Last Lamb slain and Jesus’s blood cleanses from all unrighteousness, rather than making a temporary covering as Old Testament sacrifices did. But other principles in the Old Testament are still in effect. Jesus said of tithing, these ye ought to have done and not to leave the other undone. And while there are two commandments, love God and love your neighbor, if you love your neighbor you will not be breaking the Ten Commandments in regard to your neighbor.
If you want to say that Jesus is coming again so none of this matters, that Jesus will clear it all up, fine.
But I believe the Bible shows us that we are stewards of this earth and need to be using our gifts and talents in accordance with the will of God until Jesus returns.
Matthew 24:44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.
45 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?
46 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.
47 Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods.
48 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming;
49 And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken;
50 The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of,
51 And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
What each part of the body of Christ does or does not do affects the rest of the body of Christ. If one part of a natural body does not due its job due to some injury, say a sprained ankle, it puts more stress on the rest of the body. Every individual member of the body does need to work at full capacity in whatever position they are given by the Lord. When one suffers, they all suffer. Plus eyes don’t need to be hands. Livers don’t need to be kidneys. Hearts don’t need to be ears. The body works best when all parts work in their own capacity. And, cells that go rogue and try to be something they are not called to be are called cancerous.
If members go to a church but never give their tithes and offerings that puts tremendous pressure on the leadership of the church and hinders potentials of the church. In every other venue … going to a movie, going to watch the NFL series, working out a gym, attending a seminar to learn something, going on a vacation … people pay money. But they go to church week after week and don’t give tithes or give a fraction of the tithe.
So the curse comes, the economy becomes worse, and what was not given in tithe, is taken away some other way.
Malachi 3:7 Even from the days of your fathers ye are gone away from mine ordinances, and have not kept them. Return unto me, and I will return unto you, saith the Lord of hosts. But ye said, Wherein shall we return?
8 Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings.
9 Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed me, even this whole nation.
10 Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.
11 And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the Lord of hosts.
12 And all nations shall call you blessed: for ye shall be a delightsome land, saith the Lord of hosts.
