Scripture: Psalm 2:4-6
In Psalm 2, it is obvious that we have a clash prophesied between those who hold biblical values and leaders who hate righteousness. The Holy Hill of Zion means the place where God resides within us. Homosexual marriage highlights that conflict. And God did not ordain our nation to be lost by timid believers who have no confidence in their King. That is a very poor representation. As a matter of fact, it does not fit this Psalm. It does not fit it at all. What this Psalm declares is that in this conflict, we do the instruction. Politicians do the learning. But do we think that way? Do we think in those terms? Are we really preparing to rule in the midst of our enemies? Or do we need some training in how to release the authority of God’s Kingdom? Who is ruling who, is the question that we need to answer. And if the enemy is ruling us, then, by the grace of God and the mercy of the King, let that change now! In the life of every believer, let it change. Let it start at home, let victory come. Let the Judgment Seat of Christ be established at our feet and then let us instruct the presidents and judges about covenant righteousness and who rules who. Either God rules or destruction reigns. We need to seek God’s voice and to be confident in how the Spirit is leading us in praying judicially and then step out and courageously pray! Justice needs our voices! Someone has to declare it!
