The Bible appears to be confirming nation to nation as parabolic language for those who identify with Christ from every nation typified by the Hittites, Girgashites, Amorites, Canaanites, Perizzites, Hivites, and the Jebusites. In the context of the great tribulation, God brought evil from the north and ALL nations came under this judgment; God’s nations (church) also typified by Judea, Jerusalem, Sodom, Egypt, Babylon.
