Why do the heathen rage?

Posted by appolus on January 16, 2019

If we look around the world right now we see utter turmoil. Britain is completely embroiled in Brexit and confusion and fear reign. Much of America’s government is shut down with no end in sight. There is a singular lack of Statesmen on either side of the Atlantic. Both sides of the pond are bogged down in fear, anxiety, confusion and pride. Pride and hatred has separated the people. They have never been so divided as we see them today. We have rich and poor and the gap widening. We have straight and gay with a gay mafia that hunts down and tries to destroy anyone who dares to disagree with them. We have black and white, left and right, Republicans and Democrats, Tories and Labour and even those factions are fractured themselves.

The people are turning on themselves. Jesus said that nation would rise against nation. The Greek word for nation is ethnos, it is where we get our word ethnic from. And we can see it can’t we? The tensions are rising and where will it all lead? Civil war? Destruction? A breakdown of society? Perhaps all of the above, what it certainly means is that Jesus is at the door and the prince of the power of the air is in a rage and the people’s of the world are in a rage.

Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? 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 bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us. (Psa 2:1-3)

As the kingdoms of the world get further away from the Lord and His people, when they make His ways a target for destruction and turn an angry eye on His children, when they not only reject God but shake an angry fist at God, what can this world expect other than to experience judgment? I would put it to you reader that if you look around the world at the chaos and lack of leadership, you see the people under judgment and they are devouring themselves. Everything that can be shaken, every kingdom, every leadership, every institution that sets itself up against the Lord and His anointed, is being shaken to its very broken foundations. God alone, and His ways, are the answer for a broken world. Jesus is the answer, His ways, His holiness, His righteousness, His word. Reject the light of His ways and only darkness follows. This is true not only for Kingdoms but for individuals. The kings and the Kingdoms of this world, their rulers and their leaders should repent and cry out to God.

And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great. (Rev 16:21) Even after great earthquakes and plagues, men did not turn to God, with their hardened hearts they blasphemed Him.
