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. Psalm 2:1-3
Should we be surprised when our own people and rulers seek to cast off God and His promised Messiah so that they might live as they please and not be reminded of their utter sinfulness or of God’s impending judgment upon them? God’s Word says it will happen.
O gracious God, keep me in the true and saving faith in Christ Jesus and grant that I do not again rebel against You. Amen.
