Dear beloved: As we listen to the increasingly boisterous and bellicose statements being issued by the leader of North Korea, this man whom the devil is using to strike fear into the hearts of people all over the western hemisphere, it is time and past for the people of God to get down on their knees and cry out for deliverance. Psalm 2:1 Why are the nations in an uproar, and the peoples devising a vain thing? v2 The kings of the earth take their stand, and the rulers take counsel together against the Lord and His anointed: v3 "Let us tear their fetters apart, and cast away their cords from us!" The culmination of years of communist, atheist isolation is now bearing the fruit of that which has been sown. This is a country whose leaders cry out, "let us cast the cords of God away from us, so we can be unrestrained in our anger and violence."
Psalm 2:8 Ask of Me, and I will surely give the nations as Thine inheritance, and the very ends of the earth as Thy possession. v9 Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron, Thou shalt shatter them like earthenware." This 28 year old leader believes he is the king as he shakes his fist in the face of world opinion, but the scripture tells a different story. Psalm 2:4 He who sits in the heavens laughs, The Lord scoffs at them. v5 Then He will speak to them in His anger and terrify them in His fury: v6 But as for Me, I have installed My King upon Zion, My holy mountain. If this man were just a fool who says there is no God it would not be such a terrifying situation, but with his finger on the trigger of nuclear weapons it becomes the height of terrorist hostage taking.
Beloved, let us be in prayer for God to deliver us and show this man who is the real King. Psalm 3:3 But thou, O Lord, art a shield about me, My glory, and the One who lifts my head. v4 I was crying to the Lord with my voice, and He answered me from His holy mountain. Let us even pray that the Lord Jesus will reveal Himself to this man and he will have a dramatic conversion, that his country will be unified with South Korea and that there will be a wave of openness to the preaching of the gospel in North Korea. With God all things are possible! God bless you, in Christ, Jim www.gathertheoutcasts.com
