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.’” It is obvious that Psalm 2:1-3 outlines a prophetic end-time conflict between the politicians and rulers of the earth with the spiritual kings and priests of the Most High God. It says “The kings of the earth set themselves, And the rulers take counsel together, Against the Lord and against His Anointed”. His Anointed are God’s representatives – His Anointed sit in our warring churches. The political rulers take council together in order to break the laws and morals that were instituted by the church. That is the picture of the end-time conflict that we are currently in. Psalm 2 gives us God’s pathway through it – but only if we will listen, heed and act! We are in that conflict right now. The question is, are we willing to act biblically? Are we willing to act according to the outline? That is the question facing the church today. Will we act according to the God’s judicial directives? If not, we will not get our harvest. If we do then some may go to jail for their righteous stand but at least we get to make an impact. There is a conflict. Are we willing to represent the King in it?
