The Coming Season {6}

This entry is part 6 of 14 in the series Psalm one

2 Peter 3:10 “But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which, the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.”

And from what we have heard and read from 2 Peter 3:10, the righteous took delight in the law of God because it was God’s instruction for his life. And he did so because of what is coming in the future seasons, and if we were to ask you at this point in our study on the book of Psalms one, what is coming in the future, we should by now understand the theme of the Psalm and the whole bible is dealing with God’s coming judgment.

However, God will not send judgment until he first sends out a warning, and the warning God sent out into the world by the hands of his disciples came with the choice to either choose God and to avert the judgment, and or to stand against God and perish upon his appearance.

Psalms 1:4 reads, “The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind drives away.” And unlike the blessed man who took seriously the warning sent by God, the world and its governments are yet pursuing their dreams of empire; and failing to avert their attack against the kingdom of God, they are, therefore, unprepared and will become like chaff in the wind.

But seeing that mankind had not learned from the judgment God sent upon the land in the days of old and seeing that God was moved to finally put an end to the rebellion of mankind. After carefully reading the law and realizing God was being gracious to humanity, the blessed man took delight in the law of God which is God’s instruction, and began to put effort into preparing for the coming season.

Believing in God, he rejected the counsel of the ungodly whose counsel was to ignore the counsel of God and to pursue their dreams of building an empire in defiance to the rule of God.

Their rebellion was to pursue the dreams of their forefathers who were destroyed in the great flood God sent upon the earth in the days of old. They were condemned to death, but only because they did not believe, and because they did not believe they made no arrangement to escape the flood.

Jesus in light of this truth spoke to Nicodemus concerning these things, John 3:18-19He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.”

The old world was condemned to death because they did not believe Noah when he preached concerning the coming flood and judgment of God. And because they did not believe, they died due to their unpreparedness. And speaking regarding their unpreparedness, Jesus said in addition to Nicodemus, John 3:19, “And this is the condemnation, that light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light because their deeds were evil.” And because they loved the darkness, they refused to come to the truth that they might escape the judgment.

Believing they could overthrow the Son of God, the ungodly chose not to believe, therefore, sat idly by until the season was upon him. He said in his heart, “Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.”

Their dream was to establish an empire in defiance of the Son of God, it was an act of war, and in their hearts; revenge for what God did to their ancestors in the old world. And because of these things, God sent his son to ask the nations in rebellion.

Psalms 2:1,Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?” because what they intend on doing is vain because, at the moment, they are living under a curse, the curse of death that has been resting on the human race from the time of Adam’s rebellion.

But bent on establishing an empire in defiance against the coming Christ, they have set their minds on fighting against God that they might overthrow the Christ of God and his people.

Psalms 2:2-3 reads,The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed,” And this is their plan and what they are saying, “Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.” They are taking counsel through planning and deception on how to do away with Christ and his people.

But as they vainly plan to do away with the people of God and his Christ, God sent out a warning, ” Psalms 2:4-5,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.” And seeing that the nations are determined in their hearts to pursue the dreams of their forefathers, God was again moved with anger; and judged them in their rebellion.

Seeing the things, the things the nations began to do, God sent among them destruction and confusion, so that they left off building the city; destroying their plans, and their great name. Nevertheless, each according to his tribe would go off in pursuit of his dream of an empire that he might become great in the earth, a god among the nations, and so that he might dominate and rule over the earth.
