According to a recent Gallup poll about global leadership, “Germany maintained its position as the most highly rated country in the world for a third year running in 2019, while the US approval ratings stayed well below those achieved under the last administration” (Deutsche Welle, July 27, 2020). The United States, a distant second to Germany, was followed closely by China and Russia respectively. “The disapproval of US leadership is strongest in Europe, where a record 61% of people are disenchanted with the current administration.” In Australia, 67 percent of people disapprove of American leadership. In Africa, once a strong source of support for the U.S., respect has fallen greatly!
Bible prophecy has long warned that disobedience to God’s laws on the part of Israelite-descended nations—such as the U.S., Britain, France, Canada, and others—would bring about their demise (Leviticus 26; Deuteronomy 28). In fact, Moses foretold these nations would “become troublesome to all the kingdoms of the earth” (Deuteronomy 28:25). The Bible also predicts the rise of the Assyrian-descended Germans, who will be used by God to punish these backsliding Israelite nations due to their rejection of God and His laws (Isaiah 10:5–6: Zechariah 10:9–10).
The future of the world we know is a sobering one. To better understand that future, we must understand the identity of modern nations in Bible prophecy.
