Why do the nations rage, And the people plot a vain thing?
The kings of the earth set themselves,
And the rulers take counsel together,
Against the Lord and against His Anointed, saying,
Let us break Their bonds in pieces
And cast away Their cords from us.”
He who sits in the heavens shall laugh;
The Lord shall hold them in derision.
Then He shall speak to them in His wrath,
And distress them in His deep displeasure:
“Yet I have set My King
On My holy hill of Zion.”
“I will declare the decree:
The Lord has said to Me,
‘You are My Son,
Today I have begotten You.
Ask of Me, and I will give You
The nations for Your inheritance,
And the ends of the earth for Your possession.
You shall break them with a rod of iron;
You shall dash them to pieces like a potter’s vessel.’”
Now therefore, be wise, O kings;
Be instructed, you judges 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,
When His wrath is kindled but a little.
Blessed are all those who put their trust in Him…
Remember, God laughs as the wicked plot against Him, for nothing and no one can stand against Him without His judgement and wrath coming upon them…all the plans of man are futile, all the schemes of the evil one (Satan) are futile.
God is GOD, Jesus is on the throne, and regardless of what this world or the minions of hell do, Christ has won the victory and we are His, and we are more than overcomers through Jesus Christ…we share in His victory over death and Satan.
The devil and mere man can do nothing that our sovereign Father does not allow, and neither one has any true power, both are on God’s leash, and both are under God’s authority and wrath, and God will have His way….and His children (those who are in Christ alone) WILL come Home to be with Him forever. Whether it appears to be by the hand of wicked men or whether by the physical effects of a fallen mankind, or by the rapture…all of our roads lead straight to the embracing arms of THE Father, and we shall live in the house of the Lord forever…so,it’s all good. It matters not how the wicked and the nations rage and plot….God is sovereign and His prophecy, His word, is being fulfilled daily…..keep your eyes on Jesus, the Author and Perfector of our faith! And keep looking up! ♥
