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.” Psalm 2:1-3 explains an epic clash between the government of God and the political government of men. We are told nations will rage against God in the last days. When nations rage against God, they force a judicial intervention. This Psalm even tells us that various levels of political leaders will agree and band together in an attempt to change the laws of God. The use of bonds and cords in verse 3 is to completely do away with God’s judicial standard. The problem is that man, in all of his rage against God, cannot change the laws of creation. God created the Heavens and the earth, and we know a specific given territory will only hold so much sin. When that sin reaches a certain level, when the cup of iniquity is full, even the land itself cries out for judicial intervention and for a cleansing. I believe we have come to a season where the very nations in which we live and the states in which we dwell will be crying out for God’s judicial intervention to restrain the flood of evil that is coming our way. What will our participation be? Will we be a voice of the Spirit who restrains evil in the last days? Will we find our voice for the King in the end-times? That decision is ours!
