Why Do The Heathens Rage?
– Samson Paul, Adeniran –
“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 go and break their bands asunder…” (Psalms 2:1-3).
I count it a privilege to write this article, of which I believe if you will give your attention to it, you will see the reasons why the heathen (Devil) is furious and rage on earth.
No matter your status and attainment, if you will understand the message this article is passing across, you will know who and where your problem is, and learn how to tackle it.
The passage quoted above reveals unto us the two primary purposes and reasons why the wicked one rage, and take counsel. It is first against the Lord. That means against anything that the has to do with The Lord, His kingdom and people. And against His anointed!
Counsels Against The Lord
Dear friend, one of the truth you need to know about the operation of the kingdom of darkness is, they are in rage against The Lord and His kingdom. That is why the wicked one fight against truth in churches and other christian gatherings. That is why he ensure the society and government of the world become passive against the things of God. The wicked one is on an assignment against the kingdom of God. He has done it to a point that the men of the kingdom now criticize themselves over small matters. He is ensuring truth are not generally accepted even by believers. Truth is perverted and questioned among the citizens of the kingdom.
Your ability to know and recognize this truth will make you stand out in your Christian walk. Choosing not to follow the deceit of the enemy. Now that you know the devil has an assignment on earth against the kingdom of God, you must now “marry” your Bible and ensure you are grounded by the Word of truth. Because, he is perverting it everywhere already.
And against His anointed
The anointed here are the Sons and Daughters of the kingdom.
The second threats of the wicked one is against the anointed of God. Those who have been redeemed by the blood . You! If you are born again!
Dear reader, you may have wondered, why is it that you face a lot of challenges even more than the unbelievers? Why is temptations so high and much for you, (since God don’t tempt a man with evil, James 1:13)? Why are things turning around for evil, why many Christians families are broken and lots of embarrassing news about believers, their homes and ministry? Why?
May I tell you, the intention of the devil is not in all those things you see him doing. His pursuit is not really those things. His pursuit is on the seed of God in you. The Destiny You Carry. He wants it crushed, squandered and destroyed!
In the parable of the sower in Matthew 13, Jesus told us of how He, the son of man, plants good seed in our vineyards and the devil waited for man to sleep (probably spiritually) so that he can plant evil seed in the same vineyards vs 25. Devil is after only one kind of people. People with the seed of God in them. He is looking out for them. The reason you see him doing all that he is doing to you is because you carry that vital and viable seed in you.
The enemy rage against you because he had found out that you have that seed in you that can be a threat to his kingdom later in life. He had seen something you have never taken note of. His intentions are not on you but on your destiny. He wants to squander it. He never wants it to manifest at all. This is his primary focus. Not all those things you see him attempting to destroy. The reason he destroyed many happy home is so that their ministry and purposes no more exist. You must understand this fact about the devil, that is why he rages against you.
What should you do?
1. Fight The Good Fight Of Faith:
Your duty is to fight a good fight of faith. Never relent, never loose heart. Determine to end up victorious Stay away from sin, don’t yield to that temptations. You must never give in to the deceit and threat of the devil. Sing for joy in place of mourn. Jubilate, laugh the enemy to scorn. Never give in to that temptations. Never allow his threat end your marriage. Your partner is not the problem, the marriage is not even the target of the enemy, he is only using that medium to threaten you, his target is your destiny. You must not concur. That is the reason he turned everybody against you.
2. Believe In The Victory That Jesus Has Brought Us Over The Devil:
Now, one reason Satan keep defeating many believers is because, they never know Satan has been stripped off of power and authority. To subdue all his threat, and quench all the fiery dart of the devil, bible says you should put on the shield of faith (Ephesians 6:16). John wrote in his book that “for whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith” (1John 5:4). You must begin to conquer by faith in your mind.
3. Stay Pure:
The only legal ground the enemy has into your life is sin. You must make a new decision to do away with those things that are displeasure unto God. You know them. Stay pure. Your destiny will shine.
4. Continue to grow in the knowledge of Christ:
Become a better you each day and keep enjoying fellowship with Christ on daily basis, no matter the threat of the wicked one over you and the church. Christ has given us victory. We can see it, and so, it shall forever be ours. Be committed to know Christ the more.
5. Finally, Rejoice Always:
The cheapest way to embarrass the devil is to keep your joy syndrome flaming. Never let his threat take away your joy in the Lord. Rejoice because you know where you belong in this battle of life. For Christ is with you, and you are seated with Him in heavenly places.
