"The nations have fallen into the pit they have dug; their feet are caught in the net they have hidden. The LORD is known by his justice; the wicked are ensnared by the work of their hands. The wicked return to the grave, all the nations that forget God." (15-16, NIV)
If they knew this and didn't despise the Lord of lords, we would be established as a nation forever in his sight and would be raised to the heights on the Great Day of the Son of Man. But alas for us, we wickedly formulate laws and decrees without fear of God or respect for his Word, pompously thinking that "God has forgotten, he covers his face and never sees" (ps 10:11). Where else can Canada go but to the depths of Sheol? Though we stand strong for a thousand years, we have to do with a just God who will repay us in due time. Far greater, wiser, expedient empires have lasted longer than us and still fallen before the LORD in his wrath (Rome, Babylon, Persia, Assyria, Egypt, Judah, Israel and so on). Our day will come too.
