This section seems pretty hard to take. The prophet sees what will happen because God has shown it to him. Some ask why God didn't stop it from happening. The same argument or question that's asked after any great war or disaster. The answer is that no-one knows, but God is still God and He's still good. My only thought is that God made us totally free to choose, and sometimes those choices come from evil people who effect the world around them. As to God not protecting Israel, or any other nation today. Was Israel living for God? Is there a single nation today in the world that is living for God? The majority of humanity wants to deny God until a disaster and blame Him, we can't keep Him out of our lives and then expect Him to come rescue us when things go wrong.
