God crippled enslaving colonial powers by engulfing them in obliterating wars and delivered the colonized nations from ruthless bondages. Yea, the degraded of the world should wake to be thankful of the wonderful salvation from colonial grips, for yet the Africans know not that God delivered them from European bondage; nor do the Asians know that God lifted up the colonial yoke from their shoulders. It is time they knew and praised Him, and here is how the nations were delivered from evil.
For Tsion's sake the subjugating nations were punished by a world war
For Tsion's sake the haughty colonialists were laid low
For Tsion's sake colonialism ceased
The book of the LORD spells out what God would do if the nations team up against Tsion. The nations heard; yet they didn't understand. They conspired against Tsion. God did as He promised and the nations saw; yet they didn't perceive. The nations were judged: Behold, God punished the nations that plotted against Ethiopia. Upon them downed a crushing world war, yet the nations knew not why. Behold, no nation that intended malice towards the daughter of Tsion was spared being entangled by serious trouble in the end, for this is written in the book:
A tumultuous noise of the kingdoms of nations gathered together: the LORD of hosts musters the host of the battle. They come from a far country, from the end of heaven, even the LORD, and the weapons of his indignation, to destroy the whole land. Howl ye; for the day of the LORD is at hand; it shall come as a destruction from the Almighty. Therefore shall all hands be faint, and every man's heart shall melt. And they shall be afraid: pangs and sorrows shall take hold of them; they shall be in pain as a woman that travails: they shall be amazed one at another; their faces shall be as flames. Behold, the day of the LORD comes, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it. ….And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogance of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible.
Seeking guaranteed protection from ruinous wars, the great powers formed an organization for collective security named the League of Nations. The League's charters pledged collective security for a member nation if aggressed by another. Ethiopia, a member in good standing, sought protection per the League's charter from Italy, who controlled coastal Ethiopia by aggression already, and was advancing to the heartland. The great powers betrayed Ethiopia and made covert agreements with the aggressor to sacrifice Ethiopia. Italy's undersecretary for colonies, Alessandro Lessona, made a speech in May of 1935 to his people, implicitly revealing the kernel of the agreement that Italy would carry on war against Ethiopia and that France and Britain were backing it to the hilt.
