I Will  Whet  My Glittering Sword !

We are truly living in the last of the last days. Much of God's Word describes the judgment He will bring upon a sinful, godless world, especially upon a nation God has blessed beyond measure who have turned their back on and rejected His lovingkindness. At the end of Moses' life, God gave him a song:

"Give ear, O ye heavens, and I will speak; and hear, O earth, the words of my mouth." Deuteronomy 32:2

As Moses continues on, he speaks of Jeshurun. The name Jeshurun means "the righteous ones". The United States was known as a Christian nation all over the earth. They were known as the righteous ones. Moses writes:

"But Jeshurun waxed fat, and kicked: thou art waxen fat, thou art grown thick, thou art covered with fatness; then he forsook God which made him, and lightly esteemed the Rock of his salvation." Deuteronomy 32:15

Jeshurun truly has grown fat and is thick with fatness. Fatness means wealth. The United States is the most materialistic, wealthy nation on earth today. This nation truly lightly esteems the Rock of their salvation. Each time congress meets, or the Supreme Court makes a decision, they legislate against God who founded them, and blessed them above any nation that has ever been on earth. The leaders of this nation have totally forsaken God's counsel and disregard His Word. Today the world sees us as the aggressor instead of being the peacemaker. We have become vile in the eyes of the world instead of a blessed, Godly nation all looked up to. Moses continues:

"They provoked Him to jealousy with strange gods, with abominations provoked they Him to anger. They sacrificed unto devils, not to God; to gods whom they knew not, to new gods that came newly up, whom your fathers feared not. Of the Rock that begat thee thou art unmindful, and hast forgotten God that formed thee." Deuteronomy 32:16-18

God knew the end from the beginning of this nation. He also knew her downfall. He inspired Moses to declare:

"To Me belongeth vengeance, and recompense; their foot shall slide in due time: for the day of their calamity is at hand, and the things that shall come upon them make haste." Deuteronomy 32:35

Our foot is truly sliding, and the day of her calamity is at hand. God will not waste time, When her judgment begins, God will truly make haste. Moses continues his pronouncement of judgment:

"If I whet my glittering sword, and mine hand take hold on judgment; I will render vengeance to mine enemies, and will reward them that hate me. For the Lord shall judge His people, and repent himself for His servants, when He seeth that their power is gone, and there is none shut up, or left." Deuteronomy 32:41 & 36

God has warned us and warned us of His coming judgment;  first upon the house of God, then upon all those who hate Him. The word for God's people, this nation, and the whole earth is, "Repent!" And again God says, "Repent!".
