“Therefore I tell you, the kingdom of God will be taken from you and given to a nation bearing its fruits. Matthew 21:43 MEV
Is it really possible that God would destroy a whole nation because of its unwillingness to walk in His ways?
The answer, I’m afraid, is a resounding, “Yes, He is!”
God, unlike man, changes not. He is altogether Righteous, Just and Holy. He is Love but that doesn’t alter His being Just. He must judge sin. The thing is, because of His being Love, He sent His Son Jesus to pay the penalty for sin.
This is why it is so important to Him that people accept His gift and walk in His ways. He has given a lavish free Gift, the Gift of His Son. To reject the Gift is to reject the Giver and every good thing that He offers.
The Bible is a history book as well as a manual for living. It is filled with the historical record of God judging nations for their disobedience. He even destroyed the whole world once. I’m so glad He swore to never do that again by flood. But judgement day is coming.
He is long suffering and would that no one be lost. That’s why He gave of Himself in the Person of His Son the ultimate and only acceptable sacrifice for the sin of man.
We have the greatest nation in the world. It is worth rescuing and restoring to a right relationship with God. We are meant to be a God fearing people, “One Nation Under God,” ruled by “We The People” who are righteous in the righteousness of Christ.
His desire is that we be a people set apart unto Him. The alternative is destruction. We must win our people to Christ or lose our nation altogether. His call has not changed. Time is short:
But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light: 1 Peter 2:9 AV
