Babylon has been a golden cup in the hand of the Lord, intoxicating all the earth. The nations have drunk of her wine; therefore the nations are going insane. – Jeremiah 51:7
The rise and fall of the Babylonian empire are a great example of God’s sovereign power over earthly institutions. Jeremiah, God’s prophet, foretold both the ascent and descent of this once powerful nation. In the end, Babylon was simply another tool by which God accomplished His divine purposes.
Could our nation (your nation) experience a similar fate? Absolutely.
In some ways the “great experiment” that is “America, the Beautiful” seems to have gone awry and the principles upon which our nation once firmly stood are daily being abandoned. For centuries, at least at the governmental level, we were a positive influence, but now it seems, no more. What have we become? What will we be? How must we change? Is it too late?
Whatever the answers, I am convinced that the Body of Christ must seize the opportunity that has always been before it. We are here to represent our Savior to a world that needs redemption. We didn’t earn our place, nor did we deserve our position. It is a grace and an obligation that demands to be shared.
To answer the last question, it is never too late for that.
