NATION UNDER JUDGMENT - ITS BUSINESSES STRUGGLE

When a nation is under judgment, Deuteronomy 28 spells out how one can tell. We read of multiple examples in the early chapters of Exodus as the Pharaoh that opposed Jehovah came under judgment for his defiance against God's Will. Because of Pharaoh, food sources were destroyed, Egypt was littered with dead and dying livestock and animals, homes and public buildings were destroyed or heavily damaged because that's what judgments do -- they destroy and dismantle a nation's infrastructure and the economy. David Wilkerson wrote in several of his books the different signs of judgment upon a nation.

When a nation is under judgment, its businesses struggle. Small businesses and major corporation go bankrupt.

Deut 28: 20 -- The Lord shall send upon thee cursing, vexation, and rebuke, in all that thou settest thine hand unto for to do, until thou be destroyed, and until thou perish quickly; because of the wickedness of thy doings, whereby thou hast forsaken me.

David Wilkerson, in his book The Vision (pg 17) noted this about America's businesses in the coming economic collapse:

I believe we are going to witness the bankruptcies of some of this nation's major and most popular corporations, . . . Thousands of small businesses will also be forced into bankruptcies. . . .
