Scripture: Psalm 2:1-3
Psalm 2:1-3 says, “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.” We have politicians and judges who are in effect saying to the church, “You are not going to prevail with your rules and your Ten Commandments. You shut up and be quiet. You will not speak into our society!” Should the church put up with that? Absolutely not! No self-respecting Christian can keep silent about Jesus. We cannot keep silent. We have to declare what God decrees – and when the kings, judges, politicians and presidents of the earth set themselves against the Lord and against His anointed, there are specific Davidic prayers that apply! As God’s representatives, it is our responsibility to declare God’s decrees. The kings and rulers of the earth have set themselves against the Lord. We see evidence of that in laws regarding abortion and homosexuality. The law of the land is clearly set against the Lord and against His anointed. Christians that love the Lord and still voted for leaders whose decisions have cast them into the Psalm 2 category, had better take a strong look at Psalm 2 and reread their Bible, cover to cover. God is not a Democrat and He is not a Republican – He is God! Believers that support Psalm 2:2,3 leaders had better reread the Word. Are we going to represent Christ or not? There are a lot of churches you can go to that will never ask you to make that choice. But if we sit in a church that never asks us to make that choice, we are sitting in a church that is diminishing the Word. And the same level of compromise that is in the pulpit will end up in our lives. Find a church that refuses to diminish God’s Word and go there! It is the only safe thing to do!
