Why do the nations conspire and the peoples plot in vain?
The kings of the earth take their stand and the rulers gather together against the Lord
and against his Anointed One.
"Let us break their chains," they say, "and throw off their fetters.
The One enthroned in heaven laughs; the Lord scoffs at them.
Then he rebukes them in his anger and terrifies them in his wrath saying:
"I have installed my King on Zion, my holy hill"
I will proclaim the decree of the Lord:
He said to me: "You are my Son, today I have become your Father.
Ask of me, and I will make the nations your inheritance,
the end of the earth your possession.
You will rule them with an iron scepter; you will dash them to pieces like pottery."
Therefore you kings, be wise; be warned, you rulers of the earth.
Serve the Lord with fear and rejoice with trembling.
Kiss the Son, lest he be angry and you be destroyed in your way,
for his wrath can flare up in a moment.
Blessed are all who take refuge in him.
Do you think that if the "Kings" and the "rulers of the earth" were to read this right now they would understand that this is truly directed at them? Or do you think that they would see this as a "work of fiction" that has no true bearing on the world today or how they see fit to "run things"?
Unfortunately, I believe that it would be the latter... and I believe that there are those leaders our there who are truly "gathering against the Anointed One."
Where will you take your stand... on which side will you fall?
Blessed are those who TAKE REFUGE IN HIM!
