Why Do The Heathen Rage?
Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?
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.
There is a considerable amount of rage directed against the Christians these days, those devoted ones who follow Christ. The persecution of the church will continue to increase as prophesized until the Lord returns. More Christians are being martyred today than at any other time in history. While physical persecution may not be the case in some areas of the world, many Christians still experience verbal persecution in schools and the work place by those who are vehemently opposed to anyone who believes in and serves God.
Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.
But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
