Summary: The Heathen rage in rebellion to the Lord Jesus
PS. 2:1-10 Why Do the Heathen Rage? 3-1-08
Today I want to talk for a little while about all this terrorists madness that we see on every hand. Its not just here in our country, but there’s an every growing pattern of terrorist bombings and killings around the world. And according to Gods Word its not going to get better but worse, that is, until He say’s enough is enough.
2 Timothy 3:1& 13 says This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come—13 But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.
So let us be reminded that God said it would be this way in the last days. God is not surprised at all that these ungodly terrorists are doing what their doing, in fact it should in one way of looking at it be a reminder to us that are saved that God is allowing this ungodliness to run its coarse, it’ll not always be this way.
Listen as I read today’s text found in PS. 2:1-10 called the royal psalm, These are called royal psalms because they talk about the king
1Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? 2The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying, 3Let us break their bands*[restraint:] asunder, and cast away their cords* [what is restraining] from us.
4He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision*.[God views man’s rebellion as utterly ridiculous and scornful.) 5Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex*[trouble] them in his sore displeasure. 6Yet have I set my King upon my holy hill of Zion.* (a permanent capital-Jerusalem)
7I will declare the decree:* [enactment-law} the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee. 8Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession. 9Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; Thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.
10Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth. 11Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling. 12Kiss the Son, lest He be angry, and ye perish from the way, when His wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in Him.
And in Prov.1:26& 31 26I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh; - 31Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices.
Have you ever wondered—”why do the terrorists rage and murder?
Lets keep in mind that the people that do these ungodly killings are religious people, they reject our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ as the Son of God. Osama Benloden said that Jesus couldn’t save any body, these poor deceived people think if people don’t believe as they do that the only remedy is to destroy them. Little do they know that they’re on a sure road that will destroy them all, and their surely going to be destroyed.
Have you noticed how that the Russian leader is siding with Iran? That also is fore told in the Bible, read Ezk. 38:-39: and you find that “GOG” is the leader of a great army and that God puts hooks in their jaws and brings them into the hills of Israel for destruction. That takes place in the middle of the 7 year Tribulation, so dear heart less not fret too much because God is simple putting the players in place, it has to be this way, there in EZK. 38- 39 God is the One that does the destroying not any army of man, He destroys 5/6th of that crowed, I believe the reason that He don’t go ahead and destroys them all at that time is so there’ll be a small remnant left 1/6, of the enemies of Gods people to go back to what’s left of their countries to spread the word that there is a God of Israel after all.
