The Kingdom vs. kingdoms

“Why are the nations in an uproar and the peoples devising a vain thing?… He who sits in the heavens laughs, the Lord scoffs at them.” (Ps 2:1,4)
 
This Psalm is quoted by the apostles in Acts 4 after they were threatened by the Jewish authorities and commanded to stop preaching in Jesus’ name. After all the bluster and finger-wagging… the apostles were released.
 
Let the politicians wring their hands and make their plans. The kingdom of Christ will outlast them all. Is it a blessing when a nation chooses wise and ethical laws? Absolutely. What about when a nation despises Christian values and promotes worldliness? Our light can shine brighter as the world gets darker… and God laughs at their schemes to repress what He has built and bought with the blood of His Son.
 
Good luck destroying what God has built.
 
“Therefore let us be grateful for receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, and thus let us offer to God acceptable worship, with reverence and awe,”
(Hebrews 12:28)
 
Matt. 4:4 #Biblebites
