Do these verses remind you of a nation you know?
Can wicked rulers be allied with You, those who frame injustice by statute?
They band together against the life of the righteous and condemn the innocent to death.
(Psalm 94:20-21 / ESV)
Many European nations rejected God decades ago. Now America is speeding down the same dark road.
Many of our leaders and judges now hearken to the voice of the ungodly rather than the Word of God. Our rulers create laws that legalize immorality and punish the righteous. Many judges promote injustice by reinterpreting the clear words of the Constitution, thereby stealing away the freedoms we have enjoyed for more than two centuries.
They condemn innocent children to death for being unborn and unwanted. They promote immorality and steal away the livelihood of those who choose to obey God rather than men.
Some of our leaders openly reject God and say faithful obedience to God’s Word should not be tolerated. Others may claim to be Christians, but their actions and ungodly agendas demonstrate that they know NOT Christ. Their rotten fruits show they serve another god instead.
Even many people who profess to be Christians align themselves with wicked rulers by voting for them and supporting their evil decrees.
Jesus said we would know people by their fruits. He said a good tree cannot bring forth corrupt fruit, and every tree that does not produce good fruit will be cut down and cast into the fire. He also said NOT all those who call Him Lord will enter heaven, but only those who do the will of His Heavenly Father (Matthew 7:15-21).
What does your fruit say about you?
It would be easy for God’s children to become discouraged because of the rapid moral and spiritual decline in our nation. But as the psalmist said, “In the multitude of my anxieties within me, Your comforts delight my soul” (Psalm. 94:19 / NKJV).
We need to remember that the Almighty God is our defense and Rock of refuge (Psalm 94:22). The triumph of the wicked will NOT last. God will punish their sin and destroy them for their evil (Psalm 94:23).
Let us pray with the psalmist:
- O LORD, how long shall the wicked, how long shall the wicked exult?
- They pour out their arrogant words; all the evildoers boast.
- They crush your people, O LORD, and afflict your heritage. (Psalm 94:3-5 / ESV)
- O LORD, God of vengeance, O God of vengeance, shine forth!
- Rise up, O Judge of the earth; repay to the proud what they deserve! (Psalm 94:1-2 / ESV)
