Why Do the Nations Rage?

 In my daily Bible Readings, I often come across a Scripture(s) that fits perfectly a current situation in my life. It could be an answer to a question I have asked the Lord. It could be something I need to hear concerning my behavior or attitude that displeases the Lord.  😧  It could be encouragement and love! (My favs!) But sometimes it's just the Lord showing he that He knows what's going on in the world, nothing is catching Him by surprise, and He's got this! This is why I encourage all of you to spend time each day in the Bible. Don't know what to read? Start at Genesis and read until the end of Revelation. Or read one or two chapters in the Old Testament and 1 or 2 chapters in the New each day. However the Lord leads you. "But I've already read through the Bible" you might say. My answer is.. the Scriptures are alive. I guarantee you will find new revelations each time you read. Anyway, part of my reading on Friday was Psalm 2 and I sensed the Lord wanted me to share it with you.
Why are the nations in an uproar in turmoil against God,
And why do the people devise a vain and hopeless plot?
The kings of the earth take their stand;
And the rulers take counsel together
Against the Lord and His Anointed saying,
“Let us break apart their divine bands of restraint
And cast away their cords of control from us.”
Are nations in an uproar today? Are they all fighting against God? I would say, yes, more now than ever before in History. We have an organization called the World Economic Forum (closely tied to the UN) whose main spokesman, Yuval Noah Harari says that God is dead. He says that "we don't need the God of the Bible. Jesus is dead. We are just waiting to get rid of the body." He says "humans are hackable animals" and most of us are useless. He said that man can create much better things than God can, and that we can become gods ourselves.  As alarming as this man's words are, we know most governments kicked God out long ago. However this recent global government (which will take over the world) not only wants to get rid of God, but to replace Him. (Antichrist actually means Instead of Christ) They want to "break apart divine bands of restraint" and remove all of God's control over them.
To us reading and learning about this trend, it seems alarming, but here in Psalm 2, God laughs at them. Laughs!    
He who sits enthroned in the heavens laughs at their rebellion
The Sovereign Lord scoffs at them and in supreme contempt He mocks them. Then He will speak to them in His profound anger
And terrify them with His displeasure, saying,
“Yet as for Me, I have anointed and firmly installed My King
Upon Zion, My holy mountain.” 
He not only laughs at them. He mocks them! Then He will terrify them and remind them that He has put a King in Zion (and it ain't them) 
Who is that King? And what will He do?

I will declare the decree of the Lord:
He said to Me, ‘You are My Son;
This day I have begotten You.
‘Ask of Me, and I will assuredly give You the nations as Your inheritance, And the ends of the earth as Your possession.
‘You shall break them with a rod of iron;
You shall shatter them in pieces like earthenware.’

He is the Son of God, Jesus, our Messiah. And it is He who will rule the world and break these rebellious nations with a rod of iron!
Then God gives these nations some wise advice
Now therefore, O kings, act wisely;
Be instructed and take warning, O leaders judges, rulers of the earth.
Worship the Lord and serve Him with reverence with awe-inspired fear and submissive wonder; Rejoice with trembling.
Kiss, pay respect to the Son, so that He does not become angry, and you perish in the way,
For His wrath may soon be kindled and set aflame.
Kiss the Son! I love it.

And last but not least

How blessed, fortunate, prosperous, and favored by God are all those who take refuge in Him! 

That's you and me if we are true followers of Jesus!  See that? Blessed, Fortunate, prosperous and favored.

So, I ask you, why are you afraid of these silly nations, silly leaders, silly rulers and judges who threaten to rule the world and get rid of God? ( The UN, WHO, EU, WEF, and our own governments).  If God is laughing at them, maybe we should too. He not only laughs at them, he scoffs and mocks them!  So, don't be afraid. We are children of the Most High and He's in charge, in control, and He knows everything they are doing and He's already got a plan to destroy them. In the meantime, we are safe in His Mighty Arms! 
We wait expectantly for the Lord;
He is our help and our shield.
For in Him our heart rejoices,
Because we trust, lean on, rely on, and are confident in His holy name. Let Your steadfast lovingkindness, O Lord, be upon us,
In proportion as we have hoped in You. 
Psalm 33:21-22



  1. This is exactly what I have been telling my husband for weeks. He has been getting angry and upset about how things are and going. I said we need to just start laughing at them. They won't know what to do. They want you angry and divided and causing chaos. Just laugh. Laugh, laugh, laugh.

  2. MaryLu, you are sooooo right. Let us all laugh at those humans who think they can scoff at God. God is not mocked for whatsoever a man Spaeth, that shall be also real.
    Look out Harari, your day is coming!

    1. Yes, I would not want to be this Harari guy on judgement day.

  3. I think I need to turn off the auto complete since it doesn't recognize scripture!

  4. Thank you, MaryLu. I needed this, this morning. With the Roe v Wade decision Friday, the satanists are having a meltdown. We can honestly laugh at satan.

    1. Good. Totally from the Lord.. this message. We are not to allow these satanists to alarm us. Not one bit

  5. Thank you, MaryLu!! Exactly what I have been feeling in my spirit. I am reading Psalm 2 and 33 again!! I will meditate on this as I fall asleep tonight. Hold fast as we wait! Maranatha!

  6. That's so funny I was just telling a sister this morning that God laughs at these evil people that think they got this world all to themselves.
    I was quoting the same scripture in Psalms.
    It's been really hot over here in the foothills and I've been getting out at 6:00 a.m. to water. I found that I can listen to the entire Revelations in an hour and it takes me an hour and a half to water by hand. So I'm re-listening to it in the morning and I keep getting more and more out of it and understanding. Then today I added Ephesians and 1st Corinthians and what a blessing. It's all coming together and as we know the Word of God is alive and speaks to us no matter how many times we read it or hear it. I also bought these audio Bibles today, one for my husband and one for a close sister, because they don't read the Bible as often, as their eyes are failing etc so I'm praying that this will do what they're doing for me with the YouTube Bible site that I go to. It has really been just awesome. I'm finding that being in His Word right now is the most powerful place I can be. All of the chaos and confusion going on around the world just adds to extra stress. But as we know His Word is true and it is all happening quickly, the stage is being set and it's all getting ready to blow. Us going UP and the world is going into Tribulation apocalypse. No place I want to be, I cannot wait to look into the face of our key and Savior Jesus. Soon sister, real soon, as always your blog is affirmation for me.❤️🙏🕊️❤️

    1. I love it when God confirms what we are hearing from Him through others. This has happened to me countless times. Amazing God. I love that you are listening to the Bible. I think that's a wonderful idea and a good way to get God's Word deep in your soul. Also, it brings peace, hope, and joy... in great demand in these days!! Blessings, Sis. See you soon!

  7. That was King, not key. But in a way right, as He is the only one that can open the door for us to eternity with Him.

  8. Ahh, another drink of cool water, Thanks MaryLu. It God so wonderful to come at just the right time and speak a word of love, peace, joy, hope or rest in him. He always knows just what we need and when ! And I see that everyone hear is refreshed and in agreement with what you spoke MaryLu......
    Psalm 133: How Pleasant to Live in Harmony
    1A song of ascents. Of David. Behold, how good and pleasant it is when brothers live together in harmony! 2It is like fine oil on the head, running down on the beard, running down Aaron’s beard over the collar of his robes.…
    While people are barking and devouring one another everywhere, we can come to this site, and find agreement, and in agreement we find peace.
    Praise you Holy Father, glory and honor to your Righteous Name, for you know the hearts of your people and those who take their refuge in you ! We belong to the most High King, Jesus Christ both Lord and Savior. Praises to the King forever and ever !

    1. You all here are my family, my church. In my physical world, those closest to me think I'm crazy. So, I thank you, Joe, and others here, who come on to bless me with your comments. Jesus is our King, our Savior and we are family forever! I magnify the name of my Lord and King, Jesus! Soon He will rule and reign over all. :-)

  9. Your title caught my eye in my inbox. This is exactly the scripture God gave me at the beginning of the pandemic when it became clear this was manufactured by evil minds. Amen to it all. God holds them in derision and will have the last laugh.

    Also, Isaiah 40. He sits above the circle of the earth. And all the rulers are like grasshoppers. Grasshoppers! Ha. What a picture. Our God is so amazing.

    Thanks for all you do, MaryLu!

    1. Love it when God confirms a Word!! Yes, the rulers of this world are like grasshoppers to Him! So good to hear from you Kathleen! Hugs
