Israel and America: Promises and Cursings

Called Unto Liberty, 20th Century Sermons, Delbert L. Stapley

To each nation [Israel and the United States of America], God gave promises of blessings or cursings, depending upon the faithfulness of the people. In all the recorded history of man upon the earth, the God of heaven has established only two nations with basic divine purposes. One is the nation of Israel which the Lord by his mighty power led out of Egypt under the guidance of his prophet Moses.

The other nation is the United States of America. Prophets in early times foretold the events leading to the establishment of this mighty gentile nation and its promised destiny among the nations of the earth—if its people are faithful in keeping the commandments of God.
