Bible Prophecy

Wild Animals in the Cities: A Sign of Judgment

Billy Graham once said, “if God doesn’t judge America, he will have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah.”

Over the past few decades, America has turned defiantly away from her Christian heritage.  God is openly mocked on American television.  The Ten Commandments have been torn down from the public square.  Jesus Christ is not welcome in public schools.  Sin is celebrated.

Billy Graham was right.  But I don’t think Sodom and Gomorrah can expect an apology any time soon, because America WILL be judged.  The judgment has already begun.  The Bible lists societal changes that occur when God begins judging a nation.  One of these changes is that safe streets become dangerous (sound like any cities in America?).  Another change is that respect for the elderly is lost (Again, sound familiar?).  Another change is that wild animals begin to take over cities.

Recently, there have been an astounding number of news stories about wild animals invading American cities.  It’s happening on the East Coast, the West Coast, and in the Mid-West.  Traditionally, the extent of wildlife in urban centers like Boston, Philadelphia, Chicago, and Los Angeles has been rats and pigeons.  Lately, however, city folks have been confronted by raccoons, coyotes, bears, and deer!  It’s unheard of– unless you study God’s Word.  Over and over in the Bible, God points out the infestation of wild animals as a sign of his judgment against a nation.

The shepherds are senseless and do not inquire of the LORD [wow, does that ever describe U.S. politicians in general nowadays!!!]; so they do not prosper and all their flock is scattered. Listen! The report is coming — a great commotion from the land of the north! It will make the towns of Judah desolate, a haunt of jackals. – Jeremiah 10:21-22

She will become a haunt for jackals, a home for owls.  Desert creatures will meet withyenas, and wild goats will bleat to each other;  there the night creatures will also repose and find for themselves places of rest. – Isaiah 34:13-14

This is the carefree city that lived in safety. She said to herself, “I am, and there is none besides me.” What a ruin she has become, a lair for wild beasts! – Zephaniah 2:15

‘If you walk in My statutes and keep My commandments, and perform them, then I will give you rain in its season, the land shall yield its produce, and the  trees of the field shall yield their fruit.  Your threshing shall last till the time of vintage, and the vintage shall last till the time of sowing; you shall eat your bread to the full, and dwell in your land safely.  I will give peace in the land, and you shall lie down, and none will make you afraid;  I will rid the land of evil beasts, and the sword will not go through your land. – Leviticus 26:3-6
