Nations Against God (Psalm 2)

Do we see the nations of the earth rebelling against God today? Do we see a concerted effort to call what is good, evil, and what is evil, good? Do we see a push to disregard God's Word and worship the creation instead of the Creator? I'm blown away that God gave the Psalmist the words to warn us about this 2,500 years ago!!

King David wrote half of the 150 psalms describing times of anguish and times of praise. But he also wrote End Times prophecy in these psalms.

He wrote about a time when the nations would rise up against anything that glorifies God and worship the creation instead of the creator. The nations will rise up to form a One World Government and promise that this new government structure, this Great Reset, will solve all the world's problems.

As we seem to be sitting on the cusp of this coming One World Government, it's interesting to see David's words over 2,500 years ago which so clearly match our time today:

Psalm 2:1-2,11-12 [1] Why are the nations in an uproar and the peoples devising a vain thing? [2] The kings of the earth take their stand and the rulers take counsel together against the Lord and against His Anointed .. [11] Worship the Lord with reverence and rejoice with trembling. [12] Do homage to the Son, that He not become angry, and you perish in the way, for His wrath may soon be kindled. How blessed are all who take refuge in Him!

So when I read "the peoples devising a vain thing," I picture the globalist effort to establish the New World Order, promising not only to solve climate change and poverty but that we will "own nothing and be happy."

"The kings of the earth take their stand and the rulers take counsel together against the Lord." The "counsel together" I picture happening in Switzerland, New York, Israel as well as other places where there have been pandemic simulations, cyber attack simulations, power grid failure simulations, and financial collapse simulations. Could these simulations actually be implementation planning meetings rather than defensive strategy sessions?

In order to get people looking to the government for answers and willing to subjugate, there will have to be a series of crises that "require" government intervention, direction, and assistance.

If we are independent and self sufficient, we will resist government control. But if there are pandemics threatening our health, energy shortages causing rolling blackouts, gas prices climbing to a point that travel is no longer feasible, followed by food shortages, and financial collapse people will get desperate and be willing to subjugate for a promised level of normalcy.

But then the Psalm goes on in verses 11-12 to tell us what our focus should be. Don't worship the government. Don't worship the creation. Worship the Creator. Worship Jesus, who is God, who came in human flesh to die in our place, save us from our sins, and give us eternal life.

The fact that we are seeing the groundwork being laid for the final One World Government system and all the birth pangs Jesus warned us about in Matthew 24:6-8, may mean we are getting very close to the end of the church age.

God, in His timeframe, will allow the globalists to establish their One World Government. He will allow the Antichrist to kick off the 7-year Tribulation with the signing of a covenant with Israel that will allow the Jews to resume sacrifice and grain offerings (Daniel 9:27).

But that 7-year Tribulation during which the Antichrist reigns over the One World Government is also the time of the wrath of the Lamb (Revelation 6:16-17), referred to here in Psalm 2 as "His wrath may soon be kindled."

But notice the last line here in Psalm 2, "How blessed are all who take refuge in Him." The wrath of the Lamb will be poured out during the 7-year Tribulation on those who refuse to turn to Jesus and submit to Him as the Lord of their life. In fact, we are seeing the birth pangs of that future wrath in our time, today, to encourage all to turn to Him while there is still time.

Those who submit to Jesus now, will not go through His future wrath because He has already paid the price for our sins in full. There's nothing left for the followers of Jesus to be judged for because Jesus took all of our sins upon Himself on the cross.

Isn't that amazing that we find encouragement from King David through a Psalm from 2,500 years ago, to not wait until it's too late to turn to Jesus. Even King David is encouraging us to turn to Jesus now, Psalm 2:12 "Do homage to (submit to) the Son" while there's still time! Wow!
