Scripture: Revelation 1:5,6, Psalm 2:6-9
Revelation 1:5-6 implies that there is going to be a battle between the Lord Jesus and the kings and rulers of the earth. As God’s representative, we stand in the middle of that battle. Psalm 2 defines God’s response! The issue of who is going to prevail has a present and future application. Will demons rule, or will God rule? Psalm 2:6-9 says, “Yet I’ve 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.’” Does that sound like the Jesus we hear preached at church. I suppose the real issue as Leonard Ravenhill would have said is, “Do we have puppets or do we have prophets in the pulpit?” Are we preparing God’s people to represent Him in the last days? If we are not preparing the church for spiritual war then we are not preparing people for what is coming. Jesus is not meek and mild when it comes to governments and evil. He is the Judge and His judgments are accessible! Defiling politicians deserve the full measure of God’s wrath! If a thief entered your house, would you defend your property. The biggest thief in history has broken into America-How are we praying?
