THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
A father was trying to teach his young son the evils of alcohol.
He put one worm in a glass of water and another worm in a glass
The worm in the water lived, while the one in the whiskey curled up and died.
"All right, son," asked the father, "what does that show you?"
"Well, Dad, it shows that if you drink alcohol, you will not have worms."
Children, and even adults, try to excuse ANYTHING when they WANT it!
1 Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?
2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together,
against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying,
3 Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.
Light from the WORD.
Why indeed do people insist on believing there is no God?
Why do people try to find fault with the Holy and Righteous God
that created them?
The reason is quite simple.
People do not want to be bound by rules of righteousness and truth (verse 3).
They want to "break" those "bonds."
People, by nature and by choice, are sinners.
They want to serve self more than anything or anyone else.
See what else those verses tell us.
Those who insist upon serving self rather than God, are enemies of
God and of His "anointed."
The words "His anointed," refer to the Lord Jesus Christ,
our One and only Saviour, Who is the Ruler of all nations.
The words "His anointed," also refer to God's PEOPLE (Christians).
Today, God's people are constantly held in derision because of their faith.
For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven.
The Word of God, which binds the truth of God, cannot be broken by man!
10....at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven,
and things in earth, and things under the earth;
11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father.
It's GONNA happen!
Are YOU ready?
