This is a message from leading the way with Dr. Michael, you sat.

We pray that it will encourage you in your walk of faith.

If you would like to learn more about Dr. you Seth for leading the way, please visit LTW.or there is a word that has crept into a couple of recent years.

The word is right right we hear about road right were driving it. So I ran somewhere that he shoots the driver and the other car we hear of workplace right when a disgruntled employee takes a gun and he goes back to his former work place and shoots at his former colleagues with a herd of team range where young students will take a gun and goes to school and he shoots the pictures in the fellow students Ray there are all kinds of rage in our society today.

But the most significant and the most common rage of all that I've seen all across the globe is rage against the living God.

It is a ray that is directed upon God the father and God the son from Asia to Europe from the Americas to the Middle East rage against God's anointed one, the Lord Jesus Christ and his followers worldwide.

Christians are the most persecuted group of people on the face of the earth statistics office statistics tell us that those who publicly confess Jesus Christ get thrown into prison, they are tortured and they are killed. Why because there is a range against his anointed one, the Lord Jesus Christ and rage against his children. Those who follow him.

Rage is simply not being upset I want you to understand the difference that does not mean just you being upset but range as I understand it is a sense of emotional insanity range is a sense of irrational anger, rage is a state of uncontrollable hatred and Psalm two tells us all about the state of rage worldwide against the Lord Jesus Christ and against the followers of the Lord Jesus Christ 1000 years before Jesus was born in Bethlehem, it was prophesied of him and Psalm two about the range that people would have toward him and toward his followers. Let us read that some together. Psalm two why do the nations conspire and the peoples plot in vain. The kings of the earth take their stand and the rulers gather together against the Lord and against his anointed one. Let's break the chains they say and throw off their fetters. The one enthroned in heaven laughs, the Lord scoffs at them.

Then he rebukes them in his anger and terrifies them in his wrath, say I have installed my King on Zion, my holy hill I will proclaim the decree of the Lord. He said to me, you, my son, today I have become your father asked Leanne will make the nations your inheritance, the ends of the earth your possession you will rule them with an iron scepter. You will dash them in pieces like pottery. Therefore, you kings, be wise, be worn, you rulers of the earth. Serve the Lord with fear and rejoicing and trembling, just sound blessed to be angry and you will be destroyed in your way for the wrath can flare up in a moment. Blessed are all who take refuge in him. Father in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. We ask you to open our spiritual lives that we will see the unbelievable incredible truth comes out of your word for. We assess in his name.

Amen. Psalm two is one of the clearest messianic prophecy in all of the Old Testament. In other words, it prophesied about the Lord Jesus Christ 1000 years before he was born in Bethlehem and in the Psalm there are four speakers and they're all basically share three versus eight. The first speaker is in verses 1 to 3 is in the writer.

The second speaker versus 4 to 6 is the voice of God the father.

The third speaker in verses 7 to 9 is the voice of God the son, and the fourth speaker in the last three verses of Psalm two is the voice of God the Holy Spirit is another way I want to put this to you.

So you can remember it first thing is man's defiance of God's authority.

Verses 1 to 3 second layer that is the father's displeasure over man's rebellion. Verses 4 to 6, and further, there is a dominion and the domination over the earth by God the son versus 7 to 9 and finally the spirits deliverance of those who turn to Jesus Christ dental Psalm two.

If you haven't already here in this song you will see a clear evidence of the Trinity in the Old Testament. Some people say this Trinity is a newfangled idea. Like the Jehovah's Witnesses claim they say it's a newfangled idea that was brought into the church by some of the early Christians. Read my lips, who are the Trinity is revealed, not fully to be sure, but, as revealed in the Old Testament when God said, let us go and make man according our own image.

He was talking in the voice of the Trinity and here in this Psalm is the clearest revelation of the holy Trinity 1000 years before Jesus was revealed thousand and 30 some years before, the Holy Spirit was given to the earth.

It is not surprising, therefore, that you find that Psalm two is one of the most quoted Psalm in the entire New Testament simply because this song found its true fulfillment in the New Testament. First, the narrator's voice man's defiance of God's authority to ask yourself a question when you in your quiet moment. Have you ever asked yourself you pick up the newspaper you read about the persecuted church you read about how people are absolutely conspiring and raging against Christians and against Christianity and against the word of God asked yourself why why why do they hate God so much.

Why do people resent God so much. Why do people play and plan against the authority of the word of God so much. Why do people premeditated lay protest against God's laws.

Have you ever asked yourself the question and answer it in a minute by minute to hold on for a couple seconds because I wanted tell you something else before I answer the question, is a very important word here in verse one of Psalm two and I wanted to circle within your Bibles with you, taking notes, write it down and in various translation is translated differently by the same word, it means imagination or plotting. I wanted to contrast that word with the same word. It's in found in Psalm one actually in Hebrew. It's exactly the same word when it says Blessed is the man who meditate upon the word of God.

Meditation necessary more than Hebrew as it is in Psalm two. Psalm one Psalm two affect most theologians think salt is to be one Psalm things that same word meditate in Psalm one it says that the godly meditate upon God's word and Psalm two said the ungodly, meditate on how to get rid of God. In Psalm one it says that the godly imagines good things he imagines godly thoughts, but in Psalm two says the ungodly imagines way by which they can defy God.

In Psalm one the heart of the godly is filled with thoughts of how to find God, but in song to the heart of the ungodly is filled with thoughts of how to undermine the authority of the word of God. In Psalm one the godly cathexis stand upon the word of God.

But in Psalm through the ungodly takes his stand upon the new morality which is nothing but biblical immorality in the Psalmist said that when it comes to the defiance of God.

These groups of people. They may hate each other, they might be at enmity with each other. Then another able to stand each other. But when it comes to the commonality of hating God to become united.

You don't believe me look around you look around in this nation. Look around you politicians, courts, then EA people the American way. The national organization for women, countless others.

There are about one thing and one thing only in this country name is from God out of the schools thrown out of the courtroom throw them out of public life from God out of public policy from God out of life. Why, because his laws. They said his moral absolutes are like chains.

They are restraining us from doing what we want to do.

The Psalmist said that 3000 years ago. It's gonna happen is happening now because biblical models biblical ethics are repugnant to them because they cannot stand it and therefore they want to change it nor change it. So today we don't have liars anymore. We have people with big imagination. We don't have thieves anymore. We have creative financing. We do not have sexual immorality anymore only sexual choices and sexual preferences.

Today we have no heretics anymore only people differing in their opinions and on and on and on restraints have been broken. Christians I wanted to listen to me when you come to the point in your life of thinking that what you want is more important than what's in the word of God you are doing with the heathens are doing when you neglect the word of God and ignore the word of God you are doing what the heathens are doing when you neglect your prayer life in your walk with the Lord in intimacy you are doing with the heathens ability. How does God react to this derision. How does God react like a verses for five and six of Psalm two is one thing I want to tell you with absolute assurance that God is not doing is not bringing his hands in heaven. So Vollmar what am I going to do this, people rejecting me.

What am I going to do about these folks is one thing is not doing God is not sitting there with a bottle of Mylanta next to him and saying a harm wanted sick over man's defiance of meat and on another note, thus the Bible doesn't say that at all. The Bible said that God laughs and disconsolate them now to bring this to the levels he can understand it. I wanted to imagine an elephant's reaction when he is challenged by mouse visit. If they think they can get rid of God. Let them reach out of the sky and pulled on the stars, if they think they can get rid of God out of life might as well let them pull down the sun and the moon and stop them from shining if they think they can get God out of life might as well let them reach to the heavens and destroy the galaxies that they think they can get fit of God might as well let them control the rain and the storms and the floods they think they can throw God out of life might as well let them do something about the droughts and about hurricanes and about the earthquakes if they think they can get rid of God, let them put the ocean in a bucket.

How foolish. How foolish, no doubt does not hide from the Psalmist said he doesn't hunt.

He doesn't sit there and start coming in on 123 how many of them who think avoiding a lot of people there couple billion people. My goodness, what I got some and how many do I have cut doesn't do that.

The Bible says that God doesn't even get out of his seat. He sits in his seat and he laughs at them.

The last of these imbeciles who think that they can get rid of God.

Now this is the only time in the Bible that says God laughs but I want to tell you something. This is not a pleasant laughter is not a pleasant laughter. It is not a pleasant laughter. In fact, it is a laugh all the region listen to me with all of our technologies with all of our sciences with all of our skills with all of our talents with all of our innovations with all of IP activities with all of our big talk.

We only one breath away from being best of the material, something our very breath that we draw in the next second is on lease from God. He could put his finger thanks Elyse away your bed, now that no know sometimes I honestly want to laugh and I want to laugh loud just like God. Every time I see the politicians talk about the human spirit.

Indomitable human spirit and the power of the human spirit.

I want to laugh like God but God human spirit. Verse five you see in verse five. It's a powerful verse now to basically what it means is when the last feel of the chilling laughter dies away. It is replaced by the rising tide of fearful holy wrath pleasingly right when God's patience runs out when God's mercy comes to an end when God's time of grace is over it will give way to justice an old Lord I pray for that day to come, but I want to tell you something when that day comes, those who wanted to throw God out of public life.

Those who denied the divinity of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Those who have scorning the virgin birth does not deny the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Those who have wanted to live their lives, their way of God's way. Those who share the innocent blood of the unborn. Those who have decreed the banishment of God out of life that will standalone without defense. The Bible describes the date of judgment as a dreadful and great day. The Bible said that on the day of judgment, the rulers of the earth, and the kings of the earth will be running from mountain to mountain climbing out of the rock, saying as far from him, whose face of him who sits on the throne, the defiance of God's authority. The father's derision, father's displeasure over man's rebellion. And thirdly versus 7 to 9.

You see, the sons dominion over all the earth today. Jesus's name is used as a swear word today. Jesus's name is despised and rejected today's Jesus's name is described as divisive and unacceptable.

Today the name of Jesus is forbidden to be mentioned in many countries today. The name of Jesus is an outlaw in many schools at many institutions, but I would tell you something 1000 years before Jesus Christ was born in Bethlehem. God said of Jesus is my only beloved son 1000 years before Jesus was born in Bethlehem. God son is my anointed God said he is my only choice.

God said he is the only way to me. God said he is my begotten beloved son, God said he is the bread of life. God said that he is the way the truth and the life. God said that he is a Gore to the sheepfold. God said he is the only good Shepherd. God said he is a spring of the living water.

God said he is resurrected on the life 1000 years later after this prophecy was given. Jesus stands in the river Jordan to be baptized by John the Baptist and their Holy Spirit appears in the voice of God the father speaks. This is my beloved son in whom I am well pleased.

Pleasingly right. Jesus was with the father before the world was ever created Jesus with the father right now Jesus will be with the father forever and that nothing no state, no theologian, no seminary, no liberal church can ever change that. When Satan wanted Jesus to take a shortcut to rule over the earth. You know what I mean by shortcuts within something is he tempted Jesus to take the shortcut don't ever be surprised that he tempts you and attempts me to take the shortcuts don't be surprised. He said to Jesus, all you need to go to daycare from a said just bad to me is all yours now.

Jesus said buzz off Satan is a rough translation, but you understand what I'm trying to is a buzz off because I want to tell you something. The earth is mine. My father is going to give it to me but I have to go to the cross first. After the cross, and I'll have victory over you out of the cross and obedience to my father because thousand years ago he prophesied in Psalm two and I've got to obey my father and that is why the Bible said that he is the firstborn from among the dead is what means is a firstborn I wanted to look at verse eight verse eight something I believe with all my heart. This verse ought to be the motto of every faithful Christian I believe, with every fiber of my being that this verse ought to be printed on the walls of every mission organization. I believe that this verse ought to be printed on the walls of every church that claim Jesus from Lord and Savior.

This verse, verse eight ought to be printed on the hearts of every committed child of God. Here is what says ask me and I will make the nations your heritage and and the end of the earth your possession in about a level with you because I will open my heart to you as I look at the events of the world and I see what's going on around us. I want to tell you in all honesty, I absolutely sickening in my stomach with the defeatist attitude of many Christians.

I am literally sick and in my stomach about how so many Christians in this world have no right of any other life, then the next meal that limits recognition, then the next leisure savings accounts. I am absolutely sick and most stomach when I see Christians are down in the mouth. They talk about what we cannot do it. Talk about what cannot be done. They talk about the problems are where they are talking about the impossibility that middle thousand all about them. They tell me about all the difficulties in life. The tell me about the limitations that come in all that I am sick in my stomach of seeing people who claim to know Jesus claim to love Jesus and yet they spend more time in front of the tube than with the word of God. I get absolutely sick in my stomach when I see businessmen stretch their brains to the limit in business and in the adventures but when it comes to the word of God.

They become brain-dead Jesus and asked me the problem is most Christians never ask when they get sick as the last for healing.

When they get into trouble that has to be delivered when a loved one is suffering we ask yes that's only asking we do on ask you a question. Be honest with yourself.

You don't have to raise your hand on ask you a question. When was the last time you do pray for something that it is so impossible without the power of God working in it wasn't. Ask yourself that question, write it down and keep asking it every single day. When was the last time you've asked God for something to his glory that is impossible to the human mind to accomplish this is to make and I hope you understand my absolute emotions are this when I see strategizing and pouring their lives and their money and their time and energy and efforts spelling for what they think is me the cause of Allah and school are the Christians doing other than going to the church and they don't even stay to the end of the service and here we are.

We know the truth. We have experience of truth we claim to love Jesus we sing the song with certain Blessed assurance and do precious little and think that with great spiritual giants. Mrs. Anna be a voice crying in the wilderness in the wits and the bricks of this land and around the world not keep on saying it until my eyes are closed and death or Jesus comes back. Which of the first operator will come back today I want to tell you again unless Christians wake up and stop their self-serving install church playing and stop modifying they will wake up and will be too late. Man's the firing of God's authority.

The father's displeasure of man's rebellion. The sons dominion over all the earth, and finally the spirits deliverance of those who turn to the sun.

Look at verses 10, 11 and 12 of Psalm two Melanie tell you absolute biblical truth. Make no mistake about what I'm going to tell you, God the Holy Spirit yearns for the lost appearance for the lost God's Spirit takes no pleasure in judging man God would draw their save people judge them and that is why he added those words in his prophecy in Psalm to the last word the lost word here.

Be wise now be wise now you will, is of the earth shown the Lord with fear and rejoice with trembling kisses son, lest he be angry for me right on this one. God is a God of peace, not war, but God will not force his love upon those who decided to rebel against him, and against the sun, it will not force himself, and that is why the psalmist warns us 3000 years ago.

He warns us just the song list to be angry, take heed dog misfires his warning before worn or else you will have no excuse turned to him now before this truly accept his offer of peace and be saved eternally recognize his amnesty is not going to be forever his amnesty is not going to last for eternity because one day that amnesty will be withdrawn for the Bible tells us that Jesus is coming back. How many of you truly believe that Jesus coming back statement. The Bible tells us that Jesus is coming back upright.

He'll come back today and a lot of people believe that he's around the corner. I can't wait, but I wanted to know this. Listen carefully you see in his first coming. He came as a helpless baby in Bethlehem, but in his second coming is going to come with power and great glory in his first coming became as weak and lonely and meek and lowly but in his second coming is going to come as a judge of all humanity. In his first coming. He was dragged before Pontius Pilate and before Herod, but on his second coming. Pontius Pilate and Herod and all the arrogant realism of the world who have rejected him and rejected his salvation that will be dragged before him on his first coming. He hung helplessly upon the cross to redeem those who put their faith in him.

Those who trust in him. But in his second coming, he will come holding a lot of ion and the scepter will be in his hand in his first coming, he pleads with men and women turned to him, but in his second coming that will be pleading for mercy and will be too late in his first coming is stretched out his hand of fellowship with every human being who would stretch the hands back to him.

But in his second coming will stretch out his hand of judgment upon all of humanity kisses thousand years before Christ was born to Sisson is the hand that has been produced for you. Kiss the hands been. And you will be saved from the judgment to come.

The Bible said there is no condemnation upon those who are in Jesus Christ
