Why do the Nations rage and the people plot a vain thing?
Separation from God
As we move deeper into the end time we see that nations are divided. It is symbolic of what the hearts of people in each country represent. I’m talking about humanities separation from God. The hearts of man is far from God and it is reflected in the leadership we choose for ourselves. As nations rise against nations people it seems turn away from God to worship idols. In turn they plot evil against God’s anointed.
The people plot
The Bible makes these statements in the second chapter of Psalms “Why do the nations rage and the people plot vain things? 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”
Point of no return
If you apply that verse to our society today, it would seem things are escalating and there is even more troubling signs on the horizon. The United States has spent their way into the poor house and shows no sign of letting up. We are no longer respected around the world as a super power because we suffer from a lack of leadership. In fact many think we have gone past the point of return! Corruption is prevalent in our society. We no longer stand as a beacon of light or as a nation with moral fortitude.
Plans against the Lord
We elect wicked leaders who meet to discuss evil plans, and those plans are directed against The Lord and his people. We elect leaders who benefit themselves. Leaders who break trust with the people they were sworn to defend. The press look’s the other way because they have long chosen sides.
The battle over good and evil is being fought in our lifetime. A dark spiritual battle that matters on whose side you end up. Our Country is still divided along party lines but more than that the same unscrupulous leaders serve the special interest, the power players. It’s hard to tell if our vote has any worth. But fear not because God is in control. Though politician promise. They can’t deliver. Only God cans change this dark World.
God turn to laugh
If we do the wrong thing, we must know that God laughing at foolish man from the heavens? We refuse to acknowledge The Lord. We continue to sin against Him, but we can be sure of this, God will have the last laugh.
Some will ask! How do we sin against God? By turning our backs on Him! By refusing to repent! By elevating ourselves in the position of a god. By worship self and serving other gods. We worship musicians, sport players, money, girls, boys, men and woman?
We have gotten in bed with demons and God hates it. It is a scary thing to see! Because we are bringing punishment on ourselves. Most of us do it in ignorance. We seldom think about. Our Country has kicked God schools and has disallowed prayer in its public square. Yet we expect the best from our action and we blindly go about our lives living in contempt of the Creator.
The Narrow Gate
Jesus tell us how to get to heaven in Matthew 7:13-14 “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.” Notice a few things about this verse. The broad way leads to Hell. The broad way is every way,(Every religious way) apart from Jesus. Secondly, when you take the narrow gate, you may have a difficult time on that road. Jesus said it not me. Thirdly, it says that there are few that find it. Few will be saved. Because of mass false conversions and false teachings..
One of the biggest deceptions from the modern day church is that if you can go up to an alter and confess, and supposedly you become saved. But I caution you. To believe Jesus and to accept Jesus, is to obey Jesus. If you are not obeying Christ, by walking in faith, you may not be saved. The bible says in 2 Corinthians 5:17 “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.” You are not saved just by confessing at the alter. You must walk in faith (trusting Jesus to change you daily) with Jesus Christ. Otherwise you have rejected Him. After all repentance is an integral part of salvation and without it we are not saved.
I Never Knew You
Jesus made this statement in Matthew 7:21-23 You will notice the people communicating with the Lord are church folks. Some of them did out demons in the name of the Lord. The main point is the relationship between Jesus and you. “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’ If you were to run up to a party in the white house and demanded to be let in because you know President Obama. They may not let you in unless he knew you. That is how we ought to be with Jesus. We must know Him.
How to be saved
God tells us “repent of your sins”, (that means to turn away from your sins and live for God) You must realize that you are a sinner. The bible says that all have sinned and fall short. If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe (Trust Him with your life) in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved.How to get rid of stress and anxiety this Christmas
