I am loving going again through the Psalms, with our Spoken Word Bible Reading Plan, already! Psalm 2:1-3 is a sure picture of our world at this very moment!
Why do the nations assemble with commotion [uproar and confusion of voices], and why do the people imagine (meditate upon and devise) an empty scheme? The kings of the earth take their places; the rulers take counsel together against the Lord and His Anointed One (the Messiah, the Christ). They sayLet us break Their bands [of restraint] asunder and cast Their cords [of control] from us.

The world is indeed saying just that very thing! They have so much freedom already given to them IF they would receive JESUS as Lord and personal Savior, but they want a different kind of freedom! They want a freedom from the consequences of rejecting the One, True, Most High, Living, Almighty God of the Bible and His Word. They want a freedom that allows them to do whatever they want, whenever they want, without regard to God's Word and HIS plans and purposes. They want a freedom to gratify their flesh nature and have someone say: "That's all ok", when the Word of God tells us that when we sow to the flesh, we WILL, from the flesh, reap corruption! Here is Galatians 6:8 from the Amplified Bible!

For he who sows to his own flesh (lower nature, sensuality) will from the flesh reap decay and ruin and destruction, but he who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life.

What does God say in response to this ungodly and thoroughly unrepentant attitude? Psalm 2:4:

He Who sits in the heavens laughs; the Lord has them in derision [and in supreme contempt He mocks them].

And then He goes on to declare this in verses 5-12:
He speaks to them in His deep anger and troubles (terrifies and confounds) them in His displeasure and fury, sayingYet have I anointed (installed and placed) My King [firmly] on My holy hill of Zion. I will declare the decree of the Lord: He said to Me, You are My Son; this day [I declare] I have begotten You. Ask of Me, and I will give You the nations as Your inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth as Your possession. You shall break them with a rod of iron; You shall dash them in pieces like potters’ ware. 10 Now therefore, O you kings, act wisely; be instructed and warned, O you rulers of the earth. 11 Serve the Lord with reverent awe and worshipful fear; rejoice and be in high spirits with trembling [lest you displease Him]. 12 Kiss the Son [pay homage to Him in purity], lest He be angry and you perish in the way, for soon shall His wrath be kindled. O blessed (happy, fortunate, and to be envied) are all those who seek refuge and put their trust in Him!

AMEN and AMEN!!! OUR God IS God! The ONE and ONLY! If you have entertained these negative attitudes toward the One, True God, then REPENT (change your thinking to agree with God!) and get back on track! As the prodigal son, get yourself back into the presence of the ONE Who created you and desires to be a Father to YOU! AMEN! Here is Hillsong with "Look To The Son":

Shalom in Him!
