Signs that the Lord is Destroying a Nation

Have you ever wondered why certain things follow certain things and the outcome is always the same?Are you aware that there are signs of a nation's sure disaster? Do you think about the possiblities in your own nation as these signs develop in your land?

There are universe laws. There are laws of nature. There are laws of God. Whether or not we believe in them, they are still operating. Knowing what the laws are in any land can save you a tremendous amount of grief. Keeping the laws elevate you to the best position to enjoy any country in our present day.

I was skimming through a chapter in the Holy Bible learning about the fall of a nation in Isaiah.Prophets like Isaiah warned mankind constantly that they were overstepping their boundaries in God. In this instance the Lord wanted to warn Jerusalem and Judah in the middle east of their impending doom. He knew that they would not listen, but in all fairness He gave them the facts and left them to their own ways.

In Isaiah chapter 3 a sure sign that God was on that pathway to destroy was that He allowed women and children to rule over the city and country. At this time no sin was hidden as the people became open and unashamed to flaunt their unrighteousness. As a result their punishment began with famine,drought, and oppression.

In verse 10 the Lord tells the righteous that it will be well with them for they shall eat the fruit of their doings. Whew, I say for in our day and time we are ruled by such wickedness with womens lib and abortions on demand, gay lib and children running our schools. The ones who see and know and understand and love on God will reap goodness and mercy and lovingkindnesses.

Isaiah 3, King James version,http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Isaiah 3;&version=9;
Judgment on Judah and Jerusalem

1 For behold, the Lord, the LORD of hosts,
Takes away from Jerusalem and from Judah
The stock and the store,
The whole supply of bread and the whole supply of water;
2 The mighty man and the man of war,
The judge and the prophet,
And the diviner and the elder;
3 The captain of fifty and the honorable man,
The counselor and the skillful artisan,
And the expert enchanter.
4 “ I will give children to be their princes,
And babes shall rule over them.
5 The people will be oppressed,
Every one by another and every one by his neighbor;
The child will be insolent toward the elder,
And the base toward the honorable.”
6 When a man takes hold of his brother
In the house of his father, saying,
“ You have clothing;
You be our ruler,
And let these ruins be under your power,”[a]
7 In that day he will protest, saying,
“ I cannot cure your ills,
For in my house is neither food nor clothing;
Do not make me a ruler of the people.”
8 For Jerusalem stumbled,
And Judah is fallen,
Because their tongue and their doings
Are against the LORD,
To provoke the eyes of His glory.
9 The look on their countenance witnesses against them,
And they declare their sin as Sodom;
They do not hide it.
Woe to their soul!
For they have brought evil upon themselves.
10 “ Say to the righteous that it shall be well with them,
For they shall eat the fruit of their doings.
11 Woe to the wicked! It shall be ill with him,
For the reward of his hands shall be given him.
12 As for My people, children are their oppressors,
And women rule over them.
O My people! Those who lead you cause you to err,
And destroy the way of your paths.” Oppression and Luxury Condemned
13 The LORD stands up to plead,
And stands to judge the people.
14 The LORD will enter into judgment
With the elders of His people
And His princes:
“ For you have eaten up the vineyard;
The plunder of the poor is in your houses.
15 What do you mean by crushing My people
And grinding the faces of the poor?”
Says the Lord GOD of hosts.
16 Moreover the LORD says:
“ Because the daughters of Zion are haughty,
And walk with outstretched necks
And wanton eyes,
Walking and mincing as they go,
Making a jingling with their feet,
17 Therefore the Lord will strike with a scab
The crown of the head of the daughters of Zion,
And the LORD will uncover their secret parts.”
18 In that day the Lord will take away the finery:
The jingling anklets, the scarves, and the crescents;
19 The pendants, the bracelets, and the veils;
20 The headdresses, the leg ornaments, and the headbands;
The perfume boxes, the charms,
21 and the rings;
The nose jewels,
22 the festal apparel, and the mantles;
The outer garments, the purses,
23 and the mirrors;
The fine linen, the turbans, and the robes.
24 And so it shall be:
Instead of a sweet smell there will be a stench;
Instead of a sash, a rope;
Instead of well-set hair, baldness;
Instead of a rich robe, a girding of sackcloth;
And branding instead of beauty.
25 Your men shall fall by the sword,
And your mighty in the war.
26 Her gates shall lament and mourn,
And she being desolate shall sit on the ground.

I enjoy knowing what is going on with where I live in God. I like to see His acts of mercy and grace that will come as a nation repents and returns to keeping His laws. I love my sisters in my country but I also realize that they need to understand that men are designed to rule in God's kingdom. We women are not as clued into what men are all about and tend to think of them as stupid and brutish. We fail to recognize them as God like and more able to be in charge. Each generation becomes more and more child like and women inspired.

Have you seen the signs of destruction in Canada and USA? As a whole our countries are in a very unstable mode when disallowing prayer and Bible study. How else will the children change and realize their true destiny in God's kingdom when they are untaught?
