Is God trying to reveal himself to nations that don’t like him?

“I revealed myself to those who did not ask for me;
    I was found by those who did not seek me.
To a nation that did not call on my name,
    I said, ‘Here am I, here am I.’” Isaiah 65:1
Yes.  God did so in the Old Testament, giving second chances to many nations that disobeyed and disliked him (Canaanites, Edomites, etc.).  They either did their own selfish thing or purposefully provoked God to his face.  Eventually he needed to bring judgment on them and destroy them.  However, he always held out his hands to them and offered them grace.
