Abandoning the Law of the LORD

 2 Chr 12 tell us “After Rehoboam’s position as king was established and he had become strong, he and all Israel with him abandoned the law of the Lord.”  Although I believe the promises in chapter 7 were made directly to Israel, and not America, I believe that the principles are clear.  Our present day version of this is that “After the POTUS was established and he had become strong, he and all the United States abandoned the law of the LORD.”  Just like Judah was punished by the Egyptians, we are being plundered now by corrupt politicians and big business.  The cause is the same 14 “He did evil because he did not set his heart to seek the Lord.”  So what is our course of action?  Look back at verse 7 ‘When the Lord saw that they humbled themselves, the word of the Lord came to Shemaiah, saying, “They have humbled themselves so I will not destroy them, but I will grant them some measure of deliverance, and My wrath shall not be poured out on Jerusalem by means of Shishak”‘  Those of us who know the LORD, and the scriptures, it is our responsibility to return to the law of the LORD, and to seek Him.  May we do our part.
