Pastor John MacArthur of Grace Community Church delivered a message to America during his March 28 sermon, explaining that judgement has come on the nation and that it’s too late for America, but not for the elect.
Preaching on Mark 12 and the Parable of the Vineyard Owner, he explains that the parable was one of judgment, with Jesus promising the destruction of Jerusalem and the nation.
Vengeance will come and it must come and it did…The temple was never rebuilt, the priesthood was never recovered. No sacrifices, no ceremonies, no Sadducees, no Pharisees, no priests, no chief priests to this day. The whole system ended.
Bringing application to this present day, he explained, “it can be for a generation of people too late.” It was too late for eighth-century [BC] Israel, when they were taken captive in Babylon, and too late for first-century Israel, when Jerusalem and the temple burned down in AD 70, and they were scattered and wholesale slaughtered during the First Jewish-Roman War. “It can be too late for every nation. Acts 14 says God allows all the nations to go their own way.”
How do you know when a nation passes the point where salvation is possible for a people? Well, Romans 1 talks about it…God gave them over to sexual immorality. God gave them over to homosexuality. God gave them over to a reprobate mind – a non-functioning mind.
So when you see a nation deep in sexual sin, pervasively affirming of homosexuality, and the insanity of a reprobate mind where they make laws to criminalize righteousness and to legalize gross evil, you know that nation’s under judgment.
And the message to this nation… is that it’s too late for the nation. We’re under judgment.
Mercifully, said MacArthur, there is hope:
But it’s not too late for the elect. Because as Romans 11 says, some are chosen.
What’s our message to this nation? You’re under judgment; it’s too late. Judgment has been unleashed. You can hear, but not understand. You can see, but not perceive. Your heart may be attracted, but hardened by God.
But God has His people. So we warn, because we don’t know who those [elect] people are and we also offer the grace of the Gospel. That’s our calling.
