Nationalism caused World War I and World War II. World War II happened because Hitler could not stand losing the first great war to France.
It’s been said history repeats itself. World War III could happen because Russian President Vladmir Putin can’t stand the reality of a broken up Soviet Union. He’s got his eyes set on Ukraine for takeover by war, which could cause a cascading effect through Europe.
What is nationalism, really? Nationalism is “a feeling that people have of being loyal to and proud of their country often with the belief that it is better and more important than other countries.”
There’s nothing inherently wrong with loyalty to your nation, but not over the Kingdom of God.
Britannica.com reports, “Nationalism not only induces wars but, through the severity of its influence, makes compromise and acceptance of defeat more difficult. It thus tends to prolong the duration and increase the severity of wars.”
I heard the Lord say, “Nationalism is going to hit an all-time high as resources become more scarce. Many nations with resources to trade will try to take pole positions and power positions but will demand more than what can be paid.
“Secret trade deals are being negotiated that will cause some goat nations to prosper at the expense of sheep nations. But I hate unjust scales and I will repay. Let yourselves be Kingdom-minded not nations-minded and you will carry the authority to overturn the enemy’s plans in the nations who call upon My name.”
Why does this matter to you? Because nationalism hinders your prayers and your perspective. It’s a bias. Again, you should love your nation, but not over the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and His ways.
Nations are going to begin shaking even more, our feet must be planted firmly in the Kingdom of God and pray without ceasing.
