1 Why do the nations rage, And the people plot a vain thing?
2 The kings of the earth set themselves, And the rulers take counsel together, Against the
LORD and against His Anointed, [saying],
3 “Let us break Their bonds in pieces And cast away Their cords from us.”
4 He who sits in the heavens shall laugh; The Lord shall hold them in derision.
5 Then He shall speak to them in His wrath, And distress them in His deep displeasure:
6 “Yet I have set My King On My holy hill of Zion.”
7 “I will declare the decree: The LORD has said to Me, ‘You [are] My Son, Today I have
8 Ask of Me, and I will give [You] The nations [for] Your inheritance, And the ends of the earth
[for] Your possession.
9 You shall break them with a rod of iron; You shall dash them to pieces like a potter’s
10 Now therefore, be wise, O kings; Be instructed, you judges of the earth.
11 Serve the LORD with fear, And rejoice with trembling.
12 Kiss the Son, lest He be angry, And you perish [in] the way, When His wrath is kindled but
a little. Blessed [are] all those who put their trust in Him. [Psalm 2:1-12; NKJV]
Someone sent me an email of a YouTube interview concerning the “Deep State” plot to destroy the United States through nuclear means – from within. The blame is to be placed on North Korea and Iran, but it’s all a subterfuge by the global cabal. Back in the 60’s we used to call the globalists the Illuminati, and most Americans were laughing at the story line then. It’s a lot less funny now, but still, I think most people would today label the whole idea a grand conspiracy theory (in other words: fiction), and forget it. Life goes on forever, just like it always has, right?!
I have three irritated nerves concerning what I term, “The average American Christian”: 1) Strictly speaking, denominationalism is not, never has been, a slam-dunk to heaven, and 2) compartmentalizing our faith to a Sunday morning habit (“It’s what ‘good’ people do, don’t you know…”), is, and always has been the same as sticking our heads in the sand, or making white noises with our mouths (in some places it’s called “worship”) in order to drown out reality.
Perhaps it’s time for a reality check.
My emerging nerve #3, is getting more and more irritated with not finding many Christians who are trying to find God’s perspective in the midst of all these dire warnings, and it’s frustrating to see that the pull is to polarize us into either the “crazy” camp or the “religious” camp.
We seem to be offered two choices: 1) buy guns, ammunition, food, water, survival supplies, portable stuff (like we would be moving around in order to survive – that’s a joke; rush hour is almost non-negotiable now!), or 2) assume God has everything in control and therefore do nothing but continue on with everyday life as we’ve known it. For once, I’d like to tune in to someone who’s heard from God’s throne room, and can offer a viable third choice. Let’s put some foundations in place:
God, not man, created this world, and whether the standard-brand secular Christians realize it or not, He is a very real Person – not human, but a real Person. And, He sent His Son into the world ‘at just the right time’, to redeem the world to Himself, not just to make ancient history and sell Bibles. He created the world – He did not create a myth. That’s the truth.
In our underlying arrogance we’ve perhaps assumed too much concerning the inevitability of our destruction of planet earth. We might destroy quite a bit of it, and we’ve already done a better than average job of killing God’s created beings, but this earth does not belong to us – never did, never will. Our mandate was to govern, not own, and that’s what was fundamentally lost in the Garden of Eden.
I’m not saying the United States won’t disappear in a nuclear cloud; I am saying that if we let Fear govern us, we will never be ready to govern earth. Someone once said that this earthly experience, for the Christian, is ‘training to reign’, and if that’s true, running amok with Fear driving us, is an automatic flunk. The spirit of Fear is real, tangible in some, and very obvious in others.
Prayer works miracles. Many would like to believe that, while concurrently believing their personal participation in it does not. Prayer is for the Christian, an armory of front line weaponry, and most of the time, these weapons sit idle and rust, along with the faith to use them.
I haven’t noticed any haloes hovering over my head in my shaving mirror, but I can testify to this: if your very guts are not involved in prayer, you haven’t yet begun. I picture prayer as this: I’m in the front line of battle with no visible reserves, and millions of well-armed and vicious enemy troops ready to jump off….and I am a dead man unless God shows up. For me, that’s how to pray. Anything less is just so much religious gibberish.
Another thing – I don’t believe the Church of Jesus Christ was ever called to fight a primarily defensive fight. That’s not how the ‘gates of hell’ get taken down; it is rather, how Christians get taken down. If the bulk of my prayers are habitually re-active, I will continue to be habitually late. And worse, it will mean someone other than God is bossing me around by default.
It is by praying pro-actively that we get “prayed up”. Think of it like charging the batteries in your flashlight before night falls. Pro-activity in prayer, if it becomes habit forming for Christians, builds up our skills with the weaponry God has given His Church. He did not leave us defenseless – we did that to ourselves, and what a slap in God’s face every time churches try to manufacture “relevance”!
If the Church of God used the weaponry God gave it, instead of searching high and low for “relevance”, our citizens wouldn’t have to be “sold” church – indeed, we couldn’t keep them away! And the gates of hell would be shaking today.
Pray. The Kingdom of God and the witnesses who’ve gone before us expect us to do so. And if we all disappear in a bright flash of nuclear fusion, the next voice we hear will say, “Well done!”
