3 reasons why God rejects a nation

To explain to people how God's presence has left countries is surprisingly depressing. 

In the case of the inhabitants of Sodom and Gomorrah, God may reject an entire country, but not every individual within it. Only Lot and his family were spared, however. 

Does God still disfavor some nations in this century, someone might wonder? 

Yes, God has truly forsaken some nations, but not all people.

Easy-to-Read Version Romans 1:21-22 People knew God, but they did not honor him as God, and they did not thank him. Their ideas were all useless. There was not one good thought left in their foolish minds. They said they were wise, but they became fools.

1. Nations that does not acknowledge God as who He is are nations that incur the wrath of God.

Today, there are nations that are aware of God and His authority but still hold the belief that there is no God. Some cultures believe they have reached the point where there is no God because of books or scientific views. 

They believe that honoring and worshiping God is a loss of time relative to their advancements and outputs. People turn churches into factories, persecute Christians who worship God, kill pastors, etc. because they think they can live without God. 

Despite being aware of God's presence, they refuse to worship him. They may have a high GPD, be well-known, powerful compared to other nations, and have produced corporate titans, but because they rejected God, God is not with them.

These countries see themselves to be much wiser than God, they can produce everything they want, they can buy humans, they have others depending on them.

The word of God calls these people fools, we the developing countries we see them to be much wiser, we see some of the countries that stands against God but doing well economically as people who have stability so we give them much respect but the word of God calls them fools.

2. Idol worshiping

 Romans 1:23 Instead of honoring the divine greatness of God, who lives forever, they traded it for the worship of idols—things made to look like humans, who get sick and die, or like birds, animals, and snakes.

Countries that practice idolatry have no connection to God; instead, they prefer to venerate God's creations rather than the Creator God. 

We have great nations that venerate Satan himself, worship animals, have given evil spirits control over them, are ruled by occult forces, worship various animals, and engage in rituals dedicated to them.

Jonah 2:8

[8]They that observe lying vanities forsake their own mercy.

Such individuals reject the mercy of themselves, the love of God, the power of God, and the presence of God. They bring God's vengeance against their own souls upon themselves.  

All of these gods are fictitious, they will get you into difficulty, and they will mislead the course of the country. Satan weakens nations rather than strengthening them, which causes the presence of God to flee. Satan does not elevate nations for strength or glory.

Easy-to-Read Version Ezekiel 20:24-27 “‘The people of Israel did not obey my commands. They refused to obey my laws. They treated my special days of rest as though they were not important, and they worshiped the filthy idols of their fathers. So I gave them laws that were not good. I gave them commands that would not bring life. I let them make themselves filthy with their gifts. They even began to sacrifice their own firstborn children. In this way I would destroy them. Then they would know that I am the Lord.’ So now, son of man, speak to the family of Israel. Tell them, ‘This is what the Lord God says: The people of Israel said bad things about me and made evil plans against me.

3. Sexual Immorality

People only think of homosexuality when we discuss sexual sin; they fail to recognize that fornication, bestiality, prostitution, adultery, and other acts are also included. 

God strongly disapproves of these countries because, the moment they adopt them, they open the door to Satan's influence and put an end to God's plans for humanity. It's a type of behavior that results from a depraved mentality. 

People really do turn evil in their hearts, which causes such a country to experience God's wrath.

Genesis 19:1-25

[1]And there came two angels to Sodom at even; and Lot sat in the gate of Sodom: and Lot seeing them rose up to meet them; and he bowed himself with his face toward the ground;

[2]And he said, Behold now, my lords, turn in, I pray you, into your servant's house, and tarry all night, and wash your feet, and ye shall rise up early, and go on your ways. And they said, Nay; but we will abide in the street all night.

[3]And he pressed upon them greatly; and they turned in unto him, and entered into his house; and he made them a feast, and did bake unleavened bread, and they did eat.

[4]But before they lay down, the men of the city, even the men of Sodom, compassed the house round, both old and young, all the people from every quarter:

[5]And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men which came in to thee this night? bring them out unto us, that we may know them.

[6]And Lot went out at the door unto them, and shut the door after him,

[7]And said, I pray you, brethren, do not so wickedly.

[8]Behold now, I have two daughters which have not known man; let me, I pray you, bring them out unto you, and do ye to them as is good in your eyes: only unto these men do nothing; for therefore came they under the shadow of my roof.

[9]And they said, Stand back. And they said again, This one fellow came in to sojourn, and he will needs be a judge: now will we deal worse with thee, than with them. And they pressed sore upon the man, even Lot, and came near to break the door.

[10]But the men put forth their hand, and pulled Lot into the house to them, and shut to the door.

[11]And they smote the men that were at the door of the house with blindness, both small and great: so that they wearied themselves to find the door.

[12]And the men said unto Lot, Hast thou here any besides? son in law, and thy sons, and thy daughters, and whatsoever thou hast in the city, bring them out of this place:

[13]For we will destroy this place, because the cry of them is waxen great before the face of the LORD; and the LORD hath sent us to destroy it.

[14]And Lot went out, and spake unto his sons in law, which married his daughters, and said, Up, get you out of this place; for the LORD will destroy this city. But he seemed as one that mocked unto his sons in law.

[15]And when the morning arose, then the angels hastened Lot, saying, Arise, take thy wife, and thy two daughters, which are here; lest thou be consumed in the iniquity of the city.

[16]And while he lingered, the men laid hold upon his hand, and upon the hand of his wife, and upon the hand of his two daughters; the LORD being merciful unto him: and they brought him forth, and set him without the city.

[17]And it came to pass, when they had brought them forth abroad, that he said, Escape for thy life; look not behind thee, neither stay thou in all the plain; escape to the mountain, lest thou be consumed.

[18]And Lot said unto them, Oh, not so, my Lord:

[19]Behold now, thy servant hath found grace in thy sight, and thou hast magnified thy mercy, which thou hast shewed unto me in saving my life; and I cannot escape to the mountain, lest some evil take me, and I die:

[20]Behold now, this city is near to flee unto, and it is a little one: Oh, let me escape thither, (is it not a little one?) and my soul shall live.

[21]And he said unto him, See, I have accepted thee concerning this thing also, that I will not overthrow this city, for the which thou hast spoken.

[22]Haste thee, escape thither; for I cannot do any thing till thou be come thither. Therefore the name of the city was called Zoar.

[23]The sun was risen upon the earth when Lot entered into Zoar.

[24]Then the LORD rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven;

[25]And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground.

Sodom and Gomorrah were annihilated by God as a result of their sexual immorality. Many places in the world today still view it as wisdom, nonsense, or something merely pleasant and delectable while ignoring what the Lord God Almighty did to Sodom and Gomorrah. 

Any country that embraces and upholds this is at odds with God. Let's exercise caution as a people and as individuals to avoid becoming a target of the devil's schemes to undermine the states during this final age. 

Wake up, for many great countries have become like Babylon, and when Babylon fell, a great nation lost its greatness due to pride, rejection of God, acceptance of Satan's ordinances, and engaging in wicked behavior.

We must maintain our Righteousness if we as a country want to see God's presence in the future. 

All of these schemes are the devil's doing; they are a part of his strategies during this final age to draw many people into his realm.
