Today’s Bible readings are 2 Kings 23:31-25:30, Acts 22:17-23:10, Psalm 2:1-12, & Proverbs 18:13

Psalm 2:1-3
Why are the nations so angry? Why do they waste their time with futile plans? The kings of the earth prepare for battle; the rulers plot together against the Lord and against his anointed one. “Let us break their chains,” they cry, “and free ourselves from slavery to God.”
Today there is a definite agenda to try to destroy Christian values. There is a deliberate attack on the things that made our country great. Many seem to think that in order to get their hidden agendas passed, they must first destroy the Godly values that have been embraced for over 200 years in our country. I want to say with great boldness—They are planning in vain!!!

Throughout history, there have always been attempts to destroy Christ. That is what was happening during the time this Psalm was written. But the scripture makes it very clear that they were wasting their time.

We don’t need to panic as Christians. God is still in control & is more than able to show Himself strong in our day as He did in that day. I want to encourage you today, on our day of Independence celebration, Christ will prevail! Let the nations & the left wing agenda’s rage against Christ BUT THEY RAGE IN VAIN!!!

He is going to build His church & He has declared that the gates of hell will not overpower the Him!!! Find strength in this great promise today. There is no power BUT HIS POWER! Even if they win, they lose in the end because our Savior will come with a mighty trumpet sound & establish a NEW KINGDOM  that will NO END!!! That will be our true INDEPENDENCE DAY!!!
