There are two major objectives of this book. The first is to review God’s plan to bring fallen man back to His presence, as it was in the beginning.
The initial seven chapters will focus on this objective by examining God’s initiatives, plus obstacles and conditions prevalent during the current church age.
Key words found in these chapters include return, repent, redeem, renew, and restore.
Solomon summed up the premise wonderfully and succinctly.
“That which has been is what will be, that which is done is what will be done, and there is nothing new under the sun. Is there anything of which it may be said, ‘See, this is new’? It has already been in ancient times before us.”
Ecclesiastes 1:9-10 NKJV
The second objective builds on the first, i.e. to consider the future of the nations, particularly America.
The Bible provides much insight into America’s future based on Israel’s past. God revealed His standard of righteousness to Israel for nations to observe – and emulate.
The history of other nations will also shed much light on America’s future. Present and future events and ideologies are being patterned after past history. Simply stated, history is repeating itself.
