A Divided Country? It's Very Biblical

This is what the Lord says: Do not go up to fight against your fellow Israelites. Go home, every one of you, for this is my doing. 2 Chronicles 11:4

Many are talking about a coming breakup of the U.S.A. Some feel that a balkanization of America is even desired by the government as a way to make us easier to rule. If it happens, it would be part of a trend for nations and their empires to break apart. I look at Great Britain and its once great empire almost vanished. Same for France and Spain.

Israel's breaking apart was never healed, and that has been a long time--roughly three thousand years. So a possible division of our land, good, or bad, would not be without precedent.

There are issues today which can not be settled by compromise. I offer abortion as a leading one, along with the loss of the Second Amendment. The military has been asked, "Would you fire on Americans if they resist confiscation of guns?" Such a question was unthinkable within my early lifetime.

Of course the splitting up of Israel was of a different nature. The ten northern tribes were the rebels. But God said the division was of Him and not to try to fight these tribes. Holy people left the rebellious ten northern tribes, and resorted to Israel and Judah where the temple was.

Will this occur here, as it has in North and South Korea, for example? If it does happen, will such a division be of God?
