FOREIGN POLICY IN DISARRAY - MIDDLE EAST, NORTH AFRICA

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.

FOREIGN POLICY IS MOCKED AND RIDICULED AND IN DISARRAY.

David Wilkerson preached in his sermon 'The Last Days of America' about the signs of a nation under judgment. In this sermon, based mostly on Deuteronomy 28, Wilkerson says that one of the signs that a nation is under judgment is that her foreign policy is in disarray -- that nation will look foolish and incompetent.

And thou shalt become an astonishment, a proverb, and a byword, among all nations whither the Lord shall lead thee. --Deut. 28:37

This verse indicates that a nation under judgment is talked about by other nations. Fingers are pointed and behavior is whispered about and gossiped about and laughed at. Questions are asked if good judgment is being used or good decorum or evident wisdom.

Deut 28: 19: Cursed shalt thou be when thou comest in, and cursed shalt thou be when thou goest out.

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.
