Both Israel and Judah traded the Water of Life (YHWH) for broken cisterns when they turned to idol worship. “Hath a nation changed their gods, which are yet no gods? but my people have changed their glory for that which doth not profit. Be astonished, O ye heavens, at this, and be horribly afraid, be ye very desolate, saith the LORD.” We too are doomed for committing the same folly.
Jeremiah 2:13 – “For my people have committed two evils; they have forsaken me the fountain of living waters, and hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns, that can hold no water.”
This is certainly a good lesson from history to learn from. If America does not come back to the true God and forsake the false and meaningless things it will be doomed.
