Divine Judgment Upon a Backslid Nation

Isaiah 3:1–5, 12, YHVH…takes away…children…insolent…women rule over them. When YHVH’s judgment comes on a sinful nation, godly leadership and his protection is removed from that nation leaving a moral and spiritual vacuum. When the fear of Elohim is gone, so goes wisdom. With the absence of the wise, foolish people rise up and take over a nation. 

Into this godless vacuum will move ungodly, silly and rebellious youth and feminized male leaders and masculinized female leaders—spiritual Ahabs and Jezebels! Children who are insolent against their parents and elders are proof of the spiritual declension of a nation and YHVH’s hand being taken off that nation and his resulting judgment against it are the result. Isaiah clearly lays out this process in this passage. The cause and effect results were as true then with ancient Judah as they are today with modern America.

Since my youth (growing up in the 1960s and 70s), I have seen children go from acting respectfully to their parents and adults in general (“Yes sir,” “No Sir,” “Mr.” and Mrs.”) to total foul-mouthed disrespect and mocking scorn for older people. Correction and discipline of these rebellious brats has gone out the window, been tossed in the trash can of political correctness. When was the last time you saw a paddle in the school principal’s office? It was the norm in my day. Now such a school leader would be fired and convicted of “child abuse.” Moreover, gender roles, in many cases, have been reversed. The term “house husband” now has common currency. Many women have become masculine and many men have become feminized. As an example of this, names that have been traditionally reserved for the male gender or now popular for girls along with woman smoking cigars, sporting tatoos, men wearing hair buns, earrings, painting their toenails, and the list goes on. Now there’s even gender identity confusion and “gender reassignment” operations. Is it any wonder? 

This process has been horrendously sad and deeply painful for those of us in the older generation to watch, but it is merely symptomatic of a nation that has turned its back on Elohim. We know what things used to be like when families still went to church, there was prayer in schools, patriotism was taught in our institutions of education, mothers raised their children at home, divorce was rare, godly masculinity was a virtue and the fear of Elohim and adherence to biblical values still, to one degree or another, was the norm societally. 

This is much more than looking back and waxing eloquent for the good old days. It’s about mourning for a nation that has lost its moral and spiritual compass and has gone from a God-fearing nation to one that loathes to keep Elohim in its collective, societal conscious, and is too blind by its own pride and self-absorption to recognize that two plus two still equals four.

May YHVH Elohim help us to be children of his light in these times of gross darkness. Do not become weary in well-doing!

  1. Your comments are right on point.I hear lately the echo of people all over asking what has become of the Alpha Male not just in America but all over the Planet.I think we have to get back to becoming leaders like Yehoshua and Calab do a 180″ degree about face and man up for the sake of our nation.I pray it’s not too little too late.Thanks Natan

  2. Saw a documentary on T.V. last year about Iceland in regard to male and female issues. They showed a butch woman running a child care centre and she purposefully taught the little boys to paint their fingernails and the girls were trained to fix things. While it can be useful for girls to be able to fix things, this was a blatant attempt to brainwash boys into becoming more feminine and girls into becoming more masculine, against their natural inclinations.
    I also saw an experiment with monkeys, where they put children’s toys into a monkey sanctuary and guess what, the males were only interested in playing with the cars and trucks, while the females enjoyed playing with the dolls.
    This proves that Elohim gave us humans and also animals certain inclinations which people nowadays don’t want to adhere to anymore.
    Many women don’t want to breastfeed their babies anymore, so they put them on inferior bottled cow’s milk. A sad state of affairs.
