Q. I sent a copy of your critique of the Harbinger to the book’s author to see what he had to say about it. His spokesperson said He was interested that you were affected by the book, but that the two of you differ on whether America can return to God. He said his book is a message of hope and repentance for America while you feel repentance is not possible.
A. The point is not whether America can repent and return to God. The point is that the author misused 2 chronicles 7:14 to hold out a promise that God never made to America or any other nation but Israel. Nor did He make it to the Church. The lesson of the Northern Kingdom’s defeat is when they rejected God and the faithful moved to the Southern Kingdom with the priests (2 Chron. 11:16) the Northern Kingdom became a pagan nation ripe for judgment.
The same is true today. God’s promise to the Church is to take us to His Father’s house to be with Him where He is (John 14:2-3) so the Church has no land on Earth to heal. And when you take the Church out of America what you have left is another pagan nation ripe for judgment. America is not the Church and the Church is not America.
