God does not need to judge our nation, or any other nation for that matter. His judgement has been rendered in Christ and it is final.
The proponents of a judgement harbinger accurately see the condition of our nation – sick and weakened by a lack of relationship with the Father.
But Christ is the judgement for this condition – 2000 years ago, presently, and 2000 years into the future.
Now, there is consequence for sin. But it is not a punishment rendered by an angry God from a heavenly domain. The results are much simpler and more personal.
Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap. (Galatians 6:7)
The “judgement” for sin hails from the very field it was originally sown. There is no need for fiery reprisal from heaven. The fruit of our sinful labor is consequence aplenty.
There is enough shame, guilt, regret and worthlessness reaped from fleshly behavior that judgement from God would be piling on. The Holy Spirit surrounds those suffering in the consequences of their sin revealing the goodness of God which leads to repentance.
God is not mocked by the sin of man. He does not need our calls for judgement to defend His honor. In fact, His real response to man’s sin is compassion and mercy. Where sin abounds, there grace abounds all the more.
It is a confounding idea that the people who believe for the judgement of God are the very ones enjoying the grace afforded instead of judgement. They may have never gunned down a child or engaged in an alternative lifestyle, but their attitude toward those who have put them in the same pot. He who is without sin, cast the first stone.
Calling for the judgement of God upon a people or nation is no different than throwing a stone at the prostitute. We just want the blood on God’s hands instead of ours.
Love has come. His name is Jesus. And He IS the judgement of God.
