Hello Dr. Thejus,
I am currently reading “Thru The Bible” with J. Vernon McGee. To some people Mr. McGee’s commentary is outdated and to others (like myself) I tend to agree with most of what Mr. McGee says.
I am currently reading in 2 Samuel 21 where God tells David that the famine he and his people are experiencing is due to “Saul and his blood-stained house; it is because he put the Gibeonites to death.” I know this goes back to Joshua 9:14 when the Israelites did not inquire of the Lord before making a treaty of peace with the Gibeonites and later Saul breaks the treaty during his reign when he kills the Gibeonites.
Mr. McGhee writes in his commentary:
"I am of the opinion (and will you follow me now very carefully) that we are in the process of dissolution as a nation. There are several evidences of God’s judgement upon us. Let me mention several things.
Since World War II it has been our intention to be a peacemaking nation yet to live in sin. Believe me, friend, after World War II Americans started plunging into sin. Also, we could not quit fighting. There has not been a moment since World War II that our troops have not been fighting somewhere. If it isn’t Korea, it is Vietnam. It if isn’t Vietnam, it is in Europe or on some other continent . We are talking peace today as we have never talked it before; yet there is no peace. Isaiah 57:21 says, “There is no peace, saith my God, to the wicked.” "
My question is: Does God still judge entire nations before the great day of judgement?
Thank you for your time,
