275 God Controls the Fate of Every Nation and People

I

The rise and fall of a country or nation

depends on whether its rulers worship God,

and whether they lead their people to become closer to God

and to worship Him.


II

Perhaps your country currently prospers,

but if you allow your people to stray from God,

then it shall find itself increasingly

bereft of God’s blessings, bereft of God’s blessings.

The civilization of your country shall be

increasingly trampled underfoot and, before long,

the people shall rise up against God and curse Heaven.

And so, unbeknownst to man,

the fate of a country shall be ruined.

God shall raise up powerful countries

to deal with those countries that have been cursed by God,

and may even wipe them from the face of the earth,

wipe them from the face of the earth.


III

Although just forces do exist in this world,

rule in which God holds no place in man’s heart is fragile.

Without God’s blessings, without God’s blessings,

the political arena shall fall into disarray,

and it shall become unable to withstand a single blow.

For mankind, being without the blessing of God

is like being without the sun, like being without the sun.

Regardless of how assiduously

rulers make contributions to their people,

regardless of how many

just conferences mankind holds together,

none of this shall reverse the tide,

and none shall alter the fate of mankind.


IV

Man believes a country where people are fed, clothed and live peacefully

is a good country, and one with good leadership.

But God believes a country where no one worships Him

is one that He shall annihilate, He shall annihilate.

Man’s way of thinking is too much at odds with that of God.

So, if the head of a country does not worship God,

this country’s fate shall be tragic, the country shall have no destination.


V

God doesn’t partake in the politics of man,

yet a country or nation’s fate is controlled by God.

God controls this world and the entire universe.

Man’s fate and God’s plan are intimately connected,

and no man, country or nation

is exempt from the sovereignty of God.

To know his fate, man must come before God.

God shall cause those who follow and worship Him to prosper,

and shall bring decline and extinction

upon those who resist and reject Him.
