Why do the nations rage, and the people plot 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 bonds in pieces and cast away their cords from us.” He who sits in the heavens shall laugh; the Lord shall hold them in derision. Then He shall speak to them in His wrath, and distress them in His deep displeasure: “Yet I have set My King on My holy hill of Zion.” “I will declare the decree: the LORD has said to Me, ‘You are My Son, Today I have begotten You. Ask of Me, and I will give You the nations for Your inheritance, and the ends of the earth for Your possession. You shall break them with a rod of iron; You shall dash them to pieces like a potter’s vessel.’ ” Now therefore, be wise, O kings; Be instructed, you judges of the earth. Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling. 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
As Christians are under attack around the world from radical Islam, it is time to remember Who is on the throne of heaven, the Son of God. He is not some wishy-washy piece of milk-toast, as Islam seems to think, but He wields a “rod of iron” to utterly break His enemies in pieces. Some Christians may be martyred but they will ultimately overcome, as Scriptures declare –
“And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death. – Revelation 12:11
The Messiah has not changed since David wrote Psalm 2 and He will ride forth to conquer those who stand against Him.
Another thing Christians need to remember is that God uses His people to fight wickedness and the people who promote it! The idea that the phrase “Love your enemies” means to lay down and let them slaughter you is not correct. I can pray for them and still defend myself or my country. Again we need to look at the Bible for our understanding –
He teaches my hands to make war, so that my arms can bend a bow of bronze. … I have pursued my enemies and overtaken them; Neither did I turn back again till they were destroyed. … For You have armed me with strength for the battle; You have subdued under me those who rose up against me. – Psalm 18:34-39
We have a Muslim sympathizer as President and his actions show he is trying to destroy the America founded by God fearing people and remake it into something else. To those who are not blinded by political correctness, a simple Google search will show that under his watch over 2 1/2 million Muslims have been allowed into the country from radical Islamic countries. Government security departments admit under oath that they have no idea about the background of these Muslims flooding into the country. While the President is deeply sensitive to any wrong doing to Islam but he does nothing to protect Christians who are being killed almost daily by radical Islamics. It is time to stop allowing Islamic proponents from blaming the Crusades for all their lawless attitudes. After all, true historical facts show that the Crusades began in the first place to counter Islamic expansion, forced conversion to Islam, and the slaughter of Christians. Because some Muslims may be offended by Churches, Christian confession, eating pork, or allowing dogs, or American laws, etc. we need only to remind them they are guests here and they are free to leave if they don’t like the way we live but they cannot freely kill us or change our laws! It is time to once again assert our right as Americans to preach the Gospel in public, pray to God in public, or worship in public. It is time to remove Democrats, Independents, Libertarians, and Republicans from public elected offices if they will not stand legislatively for this. Enough of spineless politicians who bend over backwards anytime a Muslim, or homosexual, or atheist, or liberal complains about Christians daring to exercise their rights.
