I read these words this morning in the Bible… Please put them in the context of the international scene today…
My question: Why do they do it?
“Why do the nations rage and the peoples plot in vain? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD and against his Anointed, saying, ‘Let us burst their bonds apart and cast away their cords from us!”
What He does… His response!
“He who sits in the heavens laughs; the Lord holds them in derision.
What He will do!
“Then he will speak to them in his wrath, and terrify them in his fury, saying, ‘I have set my King on Zion, my holy hill.” … You shall break them with a rod of iron and dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.”
And the recommended course of action in light of that?
“Now therefore, O kings, be wise! Be warned, O rulers of the earth! Serve the LORD with fear [reverence], and rejoice with trembling! Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and you perish in the way, for his wrath is quickly kindled. BUT BLESSED ARE ALL WHO TAKE REFUGE IN HIM”
(Taken right out of Psalm 2:1–12 ESV)
I’m praying for our nation and “the nations!” How about you?
