Scripture: Psalm 2:1-5
Psalm 2:1-5 states, “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.” He who sits in the heavens shall laugh; The Lord shall hold them in derision. Then He shall speak to them in His wrath, And distress them in His deep displeasure:…” Psalm 2 describes the two opposing forces as (1) political rulers and kings, and (2) God and His church. In verses 1-3, nations rage and politicians plot. The kings, politicians and judges of the earth set themselves and take council together against the Lord and His anointed. This is happening in cities across America over enacting laws protecting homosexuality. But in verses 4 and 5, God laughs. If the church in the last days represents the Lord, then we must join the Father and hold godless political leaders in derision. When man’s earthly government comes in conflict with God’s, we must obey God’s Law and His government every single time!
