Why Do the Nations Throng And the Regimes Talk In Vain?

Tehillim 2/ Psalm

Why do the nations throng and the regimes talk in vain? Do the kings of the earth take their stand and the princes conspire together against Adonai and against His anointed. “Let us cut their cords and let us cast off their ropes from ourselves”. He who sits in heaven will laugh, the L-rd will mock them. Then He will speak to them in His anger, in His wrath He will terrify them: “I myself have anointed My king over Zion, My holy mountain!” I proclaim as an obligation that Adonai said to me, ” My son are you, I have this day begotten you. Ask of Me and I will make nations your inheritance, and your possession the ends of the earth. You will smash them with a rod of iron; like a vessel of a potter you will shatter them.”

The present trouble in the United States and therefore around the world has brought relevance to Psalm 2. The forces attempting to create tear apart our nation seem to be all powerful. But G-d, our Elohim! He will laugh! The fear is in the one who is trying to bring unrest. The chaos is in the one who will not submit to Adonai.

If your feeling the stress of the political atmosphere, then heed verses 10-12: “And now, O kings be wise, be disciplined O judges of the earth. Serve Adonai with awe, so that you may rejoice when there is trembling. Yearn for purity, lest He grow wrathful and your way will be doomed, for in a brief moment will His anger blaze; praiseworthy are all those who trust in Him.”

Though you may not be a king or prince, under the Messiah, Yeshua (Jesus Christ), we have been given the authority to rule as kings over our lives. We are accountable for our thoughts, words and actions. Know in your heart that the L-rd is fighting for His anointed. What your ask for, He will give to you.

“For in union with the Messiah, you are all children of G-d through this trusting faithfulness; because as many of you as were immersed into the Messiah have clothed yourselves with the Messiah, in whom there is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor freeman, neither male nor female; for in union with the Messiah Yeshua, you are all one.” Galatians 3:26-28 CJB

As a child of G-d, anointed with His Spirit, He will give you power to smash the ideas of unrest and chaos with a rod of iron within our minds. The nations are our inheritance. They are a place of life and peace. America and the world shall be a place of life and peace.

There is no fear for the evil powers that are trying to tear apart America. Our G-d will deal with them. So join the L-rd and laugh! He is about to move to save us.
