The kings of the earth ...

Psalm 2: 1-3

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.

I just read a rundown of the election.

Not only did Barack Obama win, but 5 ballot measures went against life. Some of the votes were close. Some of them weren't. From parental notification before abortion to assisted suicide, the death merchants and their apologists had their way.

The heathen are raging, the American people are imagining all manner of vain things, the world leaders are establishing themselves, and state and party leaders are plotting together. They're plotting to throw off all restraint and eliminate the inconvenient from their lives.

And they're not really plotting against the opposing party or against unborn babies or elderly people or against us.

They're plotting against Almighty God and against His Christ.

And God's not worried about it.

Psalm 2 continues like this:

He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the LORD shall have them in derision.

Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.

Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.

I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.

Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.

Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel.

Jesus was not defeated by Barack Obama, NARAL, Pelosi, and all the rest. He is not retiring from the field of battle. He will utterly defeat them all.

And we don't have to wait until Armageddon for that victory.

It didn't take Armageddon to bring down slavery in the Western world.

It didn't take Armageddon to bring down the brutal Nazi regime.

It didn't take Armageddon to bring down the powerful and brutal Soviet empire.

And it won't take Armageddon to bring down the abortion industry. But it will take the prayers of God's people. We don't always know God's will, but we know that injustice is always contrary to God's will. When we, if we are abiding in Christ, pray in Jesus' name, in God's will, He hears.

He heard the Hebrew children in Egypt. He heard the cries of the slaves in our land. He heard the believers in the Soviet Union and the Communist Block. Most of us are old enough to remember that one!

And God's promises to hear our prayers are not empty. It is His good pleasure to give us the kingdom.

We would see our God dash in pieces the forces of evil. So let us fast and pray.
