“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.”
He who sits in the heavens laughs; the Lord holds them in derision. Then he will speak to them in his wrath, and terrify them in his fury, saying, “As for me, I have set my King
on Zion, my holy hill.” – Psalm 2:1-6
There is no question that we are seeing the world descend further into wickedness and depravity. It seems as though every day there is a new assault that is being launched against God and His people. Many Christians are concerned about the future for themselves and their families. The thought of sending our children to public school almost feels like sending them like sheep to the slaughter. For sure, we are facing a spiritual battle that will only intensify as time goes on.
However, as much as our adversaries would love to crush us, their efforts are futile. Psalm 2 is one of the few places in the Bible that actually speaks of God laughing. Why is He laughing? Why does He treat the kings of the earth with ridicule and mockery? Because no matter how hard they try, they have no chance of winning this Holy war.
Sure they organize their meetings, make secretive plans, and do their best to implement them. They convince themselves that they are in control and that they answer to no one. But little do they realize, their actions are leading them closer to their day of destruction…the Day of The Lord. You see, Psalm 2 is actually a prophecy about the end times. It may actually be speaking about the times we are living in right now! Should this be a cause of concern? Yes, I think so. Not because there are villains seeking our destruction…but because in His wrath and fury, God has decreed that His Son will rule from Zion. This WILL happen. No question about it. It will not be stopped by Satan or his lackies. Jesus Christ, the Root of David, will rule on Earth at the appointed time. A time that is quickly approaching.
Are you ready for that Day to come? Are you ready to meet Jesus face to face? For Believers, this will be a time of rejoicing! Our Blessed Hope finally realized! For the rest of the world, a time of the greatest fear and despair imaginable. Jesus is the one the world must be concerned about. His righteous judgment will be carried out and no one will be able to escape it.
“I will tell of the decree: The Lord said to me, “You are my Son; today I have begotten you. Ask of me, and I will make the nations your heritage, and the ends of the earth your possession. You shall break them with a rod of iron and dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.”Now therefore, O kings, be wise; be warned, O rulers of the earth. Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling.
Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and you perish in the way, for his wrath is quickly kindled. Blessed are all who take refuge in him.” – Psalm 2:7-12
I encourage you to do the same. Serve Jesus in the fear of the Lord as you see that great and terrible Day approaching. Take refuge in Him before it is too late to do so. For Christ is coming to claim the nations as His inheritance and nothing will be able to stand in His way.
