Concordat between the kings of the earth and the rulers is the sign of our times. The Spirit of antichrist has already shown how Christian churches could work with kings of the earth, the outcome of which cannot be happy. ‘The Lord shall have them in derision.’
National Prayer Breakfast is an annual event observed in Washington DC where the sitting President takes a lead. It has been conducted since 1953. Wikipedia explains the event as a forum for building relationships. (“It is designed to be a forum for the political, social, and business elite to assemble and build relationships. Since the inception of the National Prayer Breakfast, several U.S. states and cities and other countries have established their own annual prayer breakfast events.”)
Is not building relationships a commendable thing? Be not deceived to think one can well sail at the same time two vessels bound for contrary directions. Paul asked, “And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?(2 Co.6:15). A US televangelist recently blaming the issue of caravans of migrants (without a shred of evidence) was one such example. He aired his views in news media attributing the crisis to a high profile Jewish philanthropist by which he was falling in line with the official version and it merely showed underlying anti-Semitism. Is that building relationship does?
In the Second Psalm we get additional clues to the ungodly who deny the law of the Lord and its power thereof and are found among believers too. They pay lip service but their hearts are far from God. All heresies have their own congregation. Ungodly are those who have denied truth of the revealed word so when John speaks of Synagogue of Satan it applies to Christian churches as well (Re.3:9). A a famous US evangelist had not so long ago openly suggested castration for rapists.’ Concordat with antichrist surely blurs line between the holy and the unholy, godly and the ungodly. Activism of the Evangelical right is a sign of such concordat.
God fashions hearts of man alike. Godly people takes delight in living their lives accordingly and it is as though Law of the Lord has worked its way into wellspring so natural that they do everything for the glory and honor for God. Whereas ungodly are those who hold truth in unrighteousness.
In Psalm 1 we read of the congregation of the righteous and it is the natural result of children of God congregating in amity while on the earth. Accepting Jesus Christ as their Savior Lord is what concordat of truth does. In v.12 we read thus: “Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.”
What shall we speak of those who accepted Jesus Christ but have gone serving other gods. Their kiss proved to be that of Judas, is it not? The ungodly shall not sit in the congregation of the righteous.
Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?
2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed, saying,
3 Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.
4 He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.
