O Assyrian, the rod of mine anger, and the staff in their hand is mine indignation. I will send him against an hypocritical nation, and against the people of my wrath will I give him a charge, to take the spoil, and to take the prey, and to tread them down like the mire of the streets. (Old Testament | Isaiah 10:5-6; bold emphasis added.)An hypocritical nation?! What latter-day nation(s) could this possibly describe? Does this give a clue concerning at least one nation?
Are we paying attention? Do we care what is going on? Do we think that ignoring Satan's M.O. makes it go away? Do we not realize that every good cause, organization, group, person, or nation has been targeted for infiltration, corruption, or destruction? that secret combinations and conpiracies are core, perpetual M.O.s of the destroyer; that whatever the promise of a life or mission, it can be corrupted? that witnesses have been exposing for years how the world (and especially the U.S.) elites have fallen into hypocritical systems that are almost beyond comprehension? that the Savior could say to us today, with even greater conviction:

Woe unto you, [elites], hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness. (New Testament | Matthew 23:27)If we do not:
▪ become aware of our own complicity of ignorance, denial, and in-action;
▪ repent and reverse course;
▪ plead for God’s help;
do we imagine that the “rod of God’s anger and indignation” will not be sent?
