What God Has Cursed

There is nothing anyone can do to rebuild or fix something that God has cursed or destroyed. There are many examples in the Bible and these are just a few. When God sent judgment on Egypt in the days of Jeremiah there was nothing the Egyptians could do to prepare to withstand the coming destruction from King Nebuchadnezzar and the Babylonians as God used them to smite Pharaoh-necho and the Egyptians:

“10 For this is the day of the Lord God of hosts, a day of vengeance, that he may avenge him of his adversaries: and the sword shall devour, and it shall be satiate and made drunk with their blood: for the Lord God of hosts hath a sacrifice in the north country by the river Euphrates. 11 Go up into Gilead, and take balm, O virgin, the daughter of Egypt: in vain shalt thou use many medicines; for thou shalt not be cured. 12 The nations have heard of thy shame, and thy cry hath filled the land: for the mighty man hath stumbled against the mighty, and they are fallen both together.” Jeremiah 46:10-12

The Bible says and other historical sources prove that the Egyptians had a very strong army and without God’s involvement they may have had a chance to defeat the Babylonians. It did not matter how many weapons or chariots they had, they could have even had fighter jets and napalm and they still would have been wiped out because God declared it was time for their destruction:

“20 Egypt is like a very fair heifer, but destruction cometh; it cometh out of the north. 21 Also her hired men are in the midst of her like fatted bullocks; for they also are turned back, and are fled away together: they did not stand, because the day of their calamity was come upon them, and the time of their visitation.” Jeremiah 46:20-21

Since the beginning of time these situations have been happening and men have always tried to rebuild or withstand what God has cursed but it never will work. Will there ever be an end to landscaping companies that get rid of weeds, thorns and thistles? No, as soon as the maintenance work stops, the weeds, thorns and thistles will come back and if left alone will overtake the land. Weeds and brush will even overcome parking lots and buildings if proper maintenance is not done. The weeds, thorns and thistles and even the maintenance and work itself is a curse of God which will never go away in this life, the same with death:

“17 And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life; 18 Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field; 19 In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.” Genesis 3:17-20

When Jesus cursed the fig tree and said it would never bear fruit, He meant what He said. You could send every hippie tree-hugger from Berkeley that hasn’t showered in a week and every pHD arborist in the world to try and nurse the fig tree back to health and they will never have any success:

“18 Now in the morning as he returned into the city, he hungered. 19 And when he saw a fig tree in the way, he came to it, and found nothing thereon, but leaves only, and said unto it, Let no fruit grow on thee henceforward for ever. And presently the fig tree withered away. 20 And when the disciples saw it, they marvelled, saying, How soon is the fig tree withered away!” Matthew 21:18-20

The world has been trying desperately to rebuild the Tower of Babel which was first attempted in vain to create world unity and reach up to Heaven. We see the United Nations AKA UN, the European Union and other wicked demonic organizations pushing anti-patriotic themes and evil ideas for the goal of “human unity” with “a common language of love” which is a false love created by the devil. Many of these ideas also reject the idea of Christianity and favor atheism, false religions and sexual perversion. God confounded the languages the first time they attempted to do this and will destroy any attempt of one-world unity and laughs at the stupidity of these liberal world leaders all thinking that they can erase God from this earth, although they will try they will never rebuild what God has cursed:

“1 Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? 2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed, saying, 3 Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us. 4 He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision. 5 Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.” Psalm 2:1-5

If we repent, and put our faith and trust in Jesus for salvation we can be assured that we will never have to endure the curses that sin has brought on the earth when we finish the race of life and find our names written in the Lamb’s Book of Life and enter into Heaven:

“And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb. In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him:” Revelation 22:1-3
