Scripture: Psalm 2:1-9
Psalm 2 makes it clear that our King will restrain evil by speaking to those championing it in His wrath. We are going to have to represent that King with Spirit-led words. Once we come to grips with that fact, then we can move to the second thing this Psalm makes us responsible for. The second area goes from speaking to the actual implementation of the intervention. Verse 5 puts it this way, “He shall speak to them in His wrath, And distress them in His deep displeasure…” Speaking is the warning, Distressing is the doing. We not only have to verbalize what God is saying to these people in the last days, but also execute intervention through prayer. If there is one event that bears the marks of a restraining intervention, it is the terrorist attack on America, 9/11. Two ministers of national prominence both tried to bring some definition to the deep distress that came on the nation. These servants equated the terrorist attack with God’s deep distress that is described in Psalm 2. But both of these men were severely criticized and chastened in the national media. It is obvious that representing God in the last days is one of the toughest assignments ever. These two men not only verbalized what God said concerning His wrath, but defined the event as one meant to distress because of His deep displeasure. If there was ever a season to pray and trust for divine wisdom to grow as a representative of the King, that season is here!
