“The wicked go down to the realm of the dead, all the nations that forget God” Psalm 9:17.
Any nation that turns its back on God. God will turn its back on them. Sometimes we don’t want to digest the truth but all of man kind is subject to God! We can’t continue to live in and support ungodliness and shun a holy God and expect Him to just overlook our transgressions and continue to pour out blessings. God is good all of the time, therefore He should be treated as such.
Many still continue to say with their mouths, “I know the Lord, I love the Lord”… but yet refuse to put their flesh and sin under subjection to live a life that is pleasing to the Lord (Matthew 7:22). The Lord says that since we have not paid any attention to His words and refuse to repent and acknowledge Him as the only true and living God. When disaster strikes, He will laugh and not answer (Proverbs 1:22-33).
Many times in the past, man and entire nations have turned away from God and refused to acknowledge Him as God and Lord of all!! Those that have built a foundation in the Lord he will uphold with his righteous right hand but the wicked shall be cut off. God will not sit back and be mocked and scorned. His majesty and power will prevail!
“… for the power of the wicked will be broken, but the LORD upholds the righteous” Psalm 37:13.
“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand” Isaiah 41:10.
