Down through the ages, God Almighty, has been visiting nations, and their leaders. His eyes go to and fro the earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose hearts are perfect before him.
The early Presidents of America, like George Washington and Abraham Lincoln, trusted in God. They were godly leaders who prayed to Him regularly. And the Lord saw them through during their reign. That is the main reason America is occupying it’s enviable position in the world today. Her early leaders had great respect for the Lord Almighty. And He prospered them and their country.
On the other hand, God dealt with Pharaoh of Egypt and his countrymen for their ungodliness and idol worship, centuries ago. He devastated the land of Egypt mostly because of their gods, and sorcerers. He turned water of Nile river to become blood; thereby making nonsense of the river goddess. He sent thunder and hailstones to the land. He caused darkness to fall upon the land for three days, among other plagues. Then, they realized there is no one to compare with Him. It dawned on them that God reigns in the kingdoms of men. He removes whoever he wants to remove from whatever position, and replaces him even with the least of men.
He turned the heart of arrogant King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon into that of animal. For seven years, he was in the bush with other animals, feeding and interacting with them. The body structure of Nebuchadnezzar changed to that of animal. At the end of seven years, the Lord restored his human senses, and brought him back to rule over his empire.
Eventually, he knew the Lord Jehovah is the Creator of the whole world. He repented from idol worship and membership of secret society, to serve the living God.
God is angry with ungodly nations and ungodly individuals. Idolatrous nations are more prone to natural disasters like: earth- quake, landslide, devastating flood, etc. He cuts nations to sizes, for turning their back on Him to worship idols.
