The ruler of the most powerful nation in the world had his every personal desire met. He enjoyed the very best comforts…his friends had access to the good life…his enemies were shown the grave!
The humiliating ruin of ancient Babylon came unexpectedly. The king did not realize that all power is given from God…and taken…when His purpose is accomplished.
We have a self-appointed “king” today in America. He has shown himself to be of the same mind as the ancient Babylonian leader. This modern king also seems unaware that all power comes from God.
Recently uncovered “scandals” seem to have no affect on the current leader. He appears to be in control…untouched by consequences for his own actions.
No man is above God! He establishes power-holds and removes them when He chooses. He uses ruinous leadership to change people. We, the people of America, can submit to this change…turning towards God and His ways.
America is heading towards her own humiliating ruin. This may be your last opportunity to turn to God and be personally restored. Nations don’t stand before God in the Day of Judgment…individuals do…alone and responsible for their personal choice.
“You felt secure in your wickedness, you said, ‘No one sees me,’ your wisdom and your knowledge led you astray, and you said in your heart, ‘I am, and there is no one besides me.’ But evil shall come upon you, which you will not know how to charm away; disaster shall fall upon you, for which you will not be able to atone; and ruin shall come upon you suddenly, of which you know nothing.”(Isaiah 47:10-11/ESV)
