When "Den of Thieves" was placed on this website of www.biblecombibleman.com in April of 2008, it was not meant to be prophetic of the national greed shortly to be revealed in the American economy; but such is the nature of Jeremiah and prophesy in Jeremiah. Even as "house" in Jeremiah 7:11 was more like national buildings of government, business, homes, and worship, even so the American "Den today of thieves", as greed has been revealed in big business, government, churches and the American church, and by average home buyers who purchased more than they needed or could afford, must be considered as an extremely large and national Den of Thieves. It must also be considered, unfortunately, that like Judah, Jerusalem and the Temple of God, America may now be too corrupt for calamity recovery. However prophetically we were also warned thousands of years ago about the state of the union of any nation ; that "Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people". Have you forgotten that greed is a sin of covetousness, and that "those who desire to be rich fall into the snare of the devil". Looking back now, we should not be so surprised that this prophetic predictions of Jeremiah came true for this nation and now; for many reasons, primarily because the Prophet Jeremiah was appointed by God to be a prophet to the nations.
