God’s Political Perspective

October 20, 2009 at 8:02 Leave a comment

Why do the nations conspire and the peoples plot in vain?

The kings of the earth take their stand

and the rulers of 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 me, and I will make the nations your inheritance, the ends of the earth your possession.

You will rule then with an iron scepter; you will dash them to pieces like pottery.”

 

Therefore, you kings, be wise;  be warned, your 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.

Psalm 2

 

The Lord foils the plans of the nations; he thwarts the purposes of the peoples.  But the plans of the Lord stand firm forever the purpose of his heart through all generations.  Psalm 33:10-11

 

This is the plan determined for the whole world;

this is the hand stretched out over all nations.

For the Lord Almighty has purposed, and who can thwart him?

His hand is stretched out, and who can turn it back?

Isaiah 14: 26-27

 

‘The decision is announced by messengers, the holy ones declare the verdict, so that the living may know that the Most High is sovereign over the kingdoms of men and gives them to anyone he wishes and sets over them the lowliest of men.’  Daniel 4:17

 

I will overturn royal thrones and shatter the power of foreign kingdoms..  I will overthrow chariots and their drivers will fall, each by the sword of his brother.  Haggai 2:22
