children of this world
Know, Consider, Pray – Tip
The book of Daniel is a fairly short book and can be read in one sitting. Daniel understood that judgment had come upon his nation because they had departed from the Lord. Portions of his prayer are below. You can read the full prayer in Daniel, chapter 9.
Daniel 9:5 We have sinned, and have committed iniquity, and have done wickedly, and have rebelled, even by departing from thy precepts and from thy judgments:
6 Neither have we hearkened unto thy servants the prophets, which spake in thy name to our kings, our princes, and our fathers, and to all the people of the land.
7 O Lord, righteousness belongeth unto thee, but unto us confusion of faces, as at this day; to the men of Judah, and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and unto all Israel, that are near, and that are far off, through all the countries whither thou hast driven them, because of their trespass that they have trespassed against thee.
8 O Lord, to us belongeth confusion of face, to our kings, to our princes, and to our fathers, because we have sinned against thee.
10 Neither have we obeyed the voice of the Lord our God, to walk in his laws, which he set before us by his servants the prophets.
11 Yea, all Israel have transgressed thy law, even by departing, that they might not obey thy voice; therefore the curse is poured upon us, and the oath that is written in the law of Moses the servant of God, because we have sinned against him.
13 As it is written in the law of Moses, all this evil is come upon us: yet made we not our prayer before the Lord our God, that we might turn from our iniquities, and understand thy truth.
14 Therefore hath the Lord watched upon the evil, and brought it upon us: for the Lord our God is righteous in all his works which he doeth: for we obeyed not his voice.
15 And now, O Lord our God, that hast brought thy people forth out of the land of Egypt with a mighty hand, and hast gotten thee renown, as at this day; we have sinned, we have done wickedly.
A primary difference between Daniel and our age is the lack of understanding that there is a God in heaven to be obeyed and that there are consequences for disobedience.
We don’t understand cause and effect any more.
The church does not focus too much on what is happening because it is waiting for Jesus to come. Yet, Jesus said, occupy till I come, so we need to be aware and be light and salt in the world around us and not allow evil to overtake the nation.
Luke 16:8b for the children of this world are in their generation wiser than the children of light.
However, the United States, like Israel of old, has participated in overwhelming evil.
We must work to remove evil leaders and evil from our nation. We have no right to complain about judgements falling on the United States. If we don’t remove the Achans in the midst, then we reap what we sow by sins of omission.

If we, as a nation, do not have the moral courage or ability to deal with evil in high places, it will be a blessing if other nations, under international law, will step in and do what we have thus far, been unable to do. Other nations have suffered due to the actions of the United States, first and foremost most recently Ukraine, but many other nations as well. Under international law, now that they know “who dunnit”, hopefully they will go after the criminals in our own nation as it seems there is not the ability or moral courage within for us to do it ourselves.
It would be honorable if we could deal with evil in high places ourselves, but we may not be able to do that and it would be better to get the job done by anyone who has the moral courage.
And the trail needs to be followed back to the globalists as well, who seek to destroy the world if they cannot govern it.
