America, Washington DC, & the Global Economy

{Scripture from the Old Testament, that we might listen and return to our Creator with a fresh attitude of repentance}

Zep 3:1 Woe to her{America} who is rebellious and defiled, The tyrannical city! {D.C.}
Zep 3:2 She heeded no voice {refusing God}, She accepted no instruction {from the Godly ones}. She{America} did not trust in the LORD, She{America} did not draw near to her God.
Zep 3:3 Her princes{Leaders & Planners} within her{America} are roaring lions, Her{America} judges{Courts corrupting Laws} are wolves at evening; They leave nothing{No righteous visions} for the morning{nothing for Hope}.
Zep 3:4 Her prophets{Leaders & Planners} are reckless, treacherous men{leading their nation for evil control}; Her priests{fallen church leaders who have perverted the truth} have profaned the sanctuary{their own churches}. They have done violence{breaking & perverting} to the law.
Zep 3:5 The LORD is righteous within her{America}; He will do no injustice. Every morning He brings His justice to light{through His righteous ones}; He does not fail. But the unjust{the perverted evil ones} knows no shame{for they demand they are right}.
Zep 3:6 “I {The creator} have cut off nations; Their corner towers{their defenses} are in ruins. I have made their streets desolate{rioting, perversion, & shame}, With no one passing by; Their cities are laid waste{corruption & evil}, Without a man, without an inhabitant{people with no righteousness}.
Zep 3:7 “I said, ‘Surely you will revere Me{the Creator}, Accept instruction{His Living Word}.’ So her dwelling{America’s future} will not be cut off According to all that I have appointed concerning her{America}. But they were eager{in their own minds} to corrupt{change & defile their own heritage} all their deeds{their own ideas of what’s right}.
Zep 3:8 “Therefore wait for Me,” declares the LORD, “For the day when I rise up as a witness{Judgment coming}. Indeed, My decision is to gather nations{America & all other nations}, To assemble kingdoms, To pour out on them My indignation{Judgment}, All My burning anger; For all the earth will be devoured By the fire of My zeal{Judgment from His righteousness}.
Zep 3:9 “For then I will give to the peoples purified lips{those who listen}, That all of them may call on the name of the LORD, To serve Him{The Living Word;Jesus} shoulder to shoulder.
Zep 3:10 “From beyond the rivers of Ethiopia My worshipers{His worldwide righteous ones in Christ, the Living Word}, My dispersed ones{His righteous ones}, Will bring My offerings{Worship & praise in all they do}.

Zep 3:11 “In that day you{those who refuse to listen} will feel no shame{righteous in their own eyes} Because of all your deeds{evil & lawless} By which you have rebelled against Me{The Creator}; For then I will remove from your midst Your proud{those who refuse to listen}, exulting ones{high minded & stiff neck}, And you{Those who will listen!} will never again be haughty{high minded & independent of HIS ways} On My holy mountain {in The High Places that control}.
