Isaiah 3:1-3 teaches us that rebellion to Yahweh on large scale leads to loss on larger scale.
After all, God doesn’t bless rebellion. And while He is patient and doesn’t want to see any perish, there is also His justice that brings Him to deal with lingering rebellion.
Just because a nation has given God their lives in the past does not mean that they can trade on the past virtue in their present sin.

“For now the Lord, the Lordof Hosts, takes away from Jerusalem and from Judah the stock and the store, the whole supply of bread, and the whole supply of water; the mighty man and the man of war, the judge and the prophet, and the prudent and the ancient, the captain of fifty and the honorable man, the counselor and the skillful artisan, and the eloquent orator.” (Isaiah 3:1–3, MEV)
