Do these verses from Isaiah 3:8-9 not represent something of the state of our nation?
Judah is falling;
their words and deeds are against the Lord,
defying his glorious presence.
The look on their faces testifies against them;
they parade their sin like Sodom;
they do not hide it.
Woe to them!
They have brought disaster upon themselves.
We are a reeling nation staggering around and not knowing where we are going. We have cast ourselves upon the whims of civilised thinking and are left in a drunken state. The Word of the Lord has not formed our lives. The fear of the Lord has been far from us. Sin is paraded before our eyes without shame. As a consequences we are in a mess.
Unless there is repentance we can only anticipate disaster. Accordingly, we should not be surprised about terrorism, crime and insurrection. The only surprise we should have is that there is not more of these phenomena. The Lord’s mercy is continually known in holding back so much from this nation. But surely the Lord ‘s patience has an ending. It did with Sodom, it did with Israel, it did with Judah. What of the United Kingdom.
Lord have mercy and yet would you turn many in this nation back to yourself
