Psalms 2:1-2 (NKJV)
‘Why do the nations rage, and the people plot a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord and against His Anointed…’
There is a global conspiracy that incorporates different levels of peoples and influences against One Target: against God. The nations, the people, the kings and the rulers are all raging and plotting and scheming against God and His Christ. If there is one global description that has not changed through the ages, it’s the global vehemence against the Lord and His Anointed.
As part of the Body of Christ through which we are made one with God Himself, we must live in the constant awareness that there is a rage against you and all you stand for. You don’t have to do anything for there to be a plot against you. You are a prime target because Jesus lives in you. Be constantly aware that spiritual rulers are having discussions about you right now, evil scheming discussions.
Wishing there would be no conflict or opposition is daydreaming. Are you daydreaming or are you alert to the conspiracy around you and against you?
‘Lord, we know that age-old Serpent will never relent in his rebellion against you and all that is yours, until the day of his final judgment. We know also that his schemes can be deadly and fierce against us who call on your name. I pray that I will ever live in the spiritual alertness that comes from you so that the enemy will never catch me unguarded. This I pray for, in Jesus name.’
