Why do the nations rage,
And the people plot a vain thing?
2 The kings of the earth set themselves,
And the rulers take counsel together,
Against the Lord and against His Anointed, saying,
3 “Let us break Their bonds in pieces
And cast away Their cords from us.”
4 He who sits in the heavens shall laugh;
The Lord shall hold them in derision.
5 Then He shall speak to them in His wrath,
And distress them in His deep displeasure:
6 “Yet I have set My King
On My holy hill of Zion.”
Many believers are perplexed when they see the tread in the world today. The world is turning further away from the true God. The Christian faith and Biblical moral standards are attacked on every side. Nations world over are passing legislations that seek to limit the influence of the Christian values, faith and it’s propagation. In some nations Christians are being discriminated, abused, persecuted, tortured and killed while non-Christian religions are welcomed and praised in the old Christian nations. In the midst of all this we see the rise of Satanism, devil worship and revival of high level witchcraft. Where is our God? The answer is – He is there and firmly on the throne. No opposition can move Him. He is firmly in control. Those who oppose His way, pay with their lives. They destroy themselves.
Consider the following:-
- The Tsunami that devastated south East Asia, struck at areas where Christians were being persecuted and Christians were spared.
- The severe hurricanes that struck America did most damage to cities dedicated to the occult and moral degradation.
- The earthquake that hit Haiti and almost totally destroyed the entire country did not touch Dominican republic which share the same island. Haiti has voodoo (devil worship) as it’s official religion.
- After Indian persecution of Christians, massive earthquakes hit only the cities where Christians were persecuted.
- The massive flooding in Asia has hit at countries where there has been severe persecution of Christians lately; namely Pakistan, Northern India, China and North Korea.
- The same is true of the recent severe forest fires that raged in Russia, Ukraine and Spain.
God is not silent. He is demonstrating that He is in control. He is humiliating the other gods that people worship and sending signals through cosmic disturbances that soon it will be closing time for the world. Let us be faithful and maintain our walk of faith and continue in our faithful service to the King of kings.
