Restraint, Derision, and The On-Coming Disaster :: By Terry James

Restraint, Derision, and The On-Coming Disaster :: By Terry James

We have looked at Restraint and Derision by the Lord against the anti-God wickedness of these evil, current times on a number of occasions in these commentaries.

That this Intervening action from Heaven would be the order of the last of the last days of the Dispensation of Grace (Church Age) is, of course, found in Psalms chapter 2 of the Old Testament and in 2 Thessalonians chapter 2 in the New Testament.

“The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed, saying, ‘Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.’ He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision” (Psalms 2:2-4).

We have looked before at truth regarding God’s Omniscient analysis involving the human minions of wickedness in high places that are, wittingly or not, doing Satan’s bidding.

A careful dissection of things going on over recent years shows time after time that the Lord has intervened to slow down the Ephesians 6:12 minions, both demonic and human, in their effort to hurry the process of bringing Antichrist to the end-times world stage.

Again, without intending to get deeply into the weeds of politics, I believe we see Heaven’s Intervention each and every day to slow the process of, for example, bringing this nation down from the Judeo-Christian principles the founding fathers intended.

We remember when Democrat party attendees years ago during their convention gave a resounding “No” when the proposition was brought up to keep the mention of God in official declarations of party campaign rhetoric. The “Nos” clearly dominated the voice vote, but those in charge didn’t dare try to kick God out because of the political damage that no vote would have inflicted.

Of course, kicking God out of anything isn’t possible with the omniscient, omnipresent, and omnipotent God of Heaven. To that end, He continues to have that anti-God party in “derision,” just as He indicated He will do to anyone against Him.

They kept the word God in but definitely haven’t included Him in actuality in any way I can detect.

The anti-God opposition continues in that now more than ever radical, leftist, ideologically driven political party that governs. What I’ve written in the past in regard to God’s having such wickedness in derision applies more than ever while we move ever more quickly toward the Tribulation. I wrote the following some time ago:

These—the president, the vice president, and the press spokesperson—have actually become almost laughingstocks to observers outside their political party, their leftist ideology, and the mainstream media (which, mentioning in the same breath, is perhaps redundant). Their mental acuity is, it seems to me, inadequate to the challenge in addressing legitimate issues on the national and international scene.

These are avid adherents of the platform presented by the political party that verbally shouted God out of their midst.

As we’ve often looked at in considering how both political parties, along with every other aspect of American culture and society, including business, public education, and even woke military insanity, we see that our so-called leadership has almost without question been turned over to the reprobate mindset of Romans 1:28.

The result of the growing anti-God actions by most all of America’s day-to-day activity is eventuating in a madness that is inexplicable apart from Psalms chapter 2 as given above.

And the leaderships of most every nation on earth observably have fallen victim to the same reprobate infection as America’s governmental leadership. All of this aided and abetted by news reporters and institutions, which makes Hitler’s Goebbels look less wicked and evil by comparison.

Rebellious mankind, driven literally mad by their own back-turning to the God Who is not willing that any should perish but all should come to Repentance, are setting the stage for fulfilling prophecy of the most frightful sort. Jude was given to foretell this most terrible outcome for those whom God has in Derision at this very moment.

“But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves. Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core. These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds they are without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots; Raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever.

“And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints, To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him. These are murmurers, complainers, walking after their own lusts; and their mouth speaketh great swelling words, having men’s persons in admiration because of advantage” (Jude 1: 10-16).

To those who are unbelievers in God’s Grace Gift Redemption Process and who are within these doomed anti-God rebels, upon which the Lord must one day, perhaps very soon, Pour His Righteous Judgment and Wrath, please understand the following: God has Provided a Way to be Reconciled to Him and to become part of His Family in Heaven Forever. This is the One and Only Way to escape the horrendous disaster, the Judgment and Wrath that is surely coming.

“That if you will confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and will believe in your heart that God has raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart man believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation” (Romans 10:9-10).
