Why do the nations rage and the peoples plot in vain? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD and against his Anointed, saying, “Let us burst their bonds apart and cast away their cords from us.” Now therefore, O kings, be wise; be warned, O rulers of the earth. Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoicing with trembling. Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and you perish in the way, for his wrath is quickly kindled. Blessed are all who take refuge in him. – Psalm 2:1-3,10-12 ESV
This is PROPHETIC, this was written around 1044 B.C and was written about the same time that Nathan delivered a WORD from GOD regarding the building of a home for God. David wanted to take care of God, but God was telling DAVID through Nathans prophecy that He would build a great dynasty, a great Kingdom for David and from David’s seed will come the ONE who REIGNS forever! “‘Furthermore, I declare that the LORD will build a house for you—a dynasty of kings! For when you die and join your ancestors, I will raise up one of your descendants, one of your sons, and I will make his kingdom strong. He is the one who will build a house—a temple—for me. And I will secure his throne forever. I will be his father, and he will be my son. I will never take my favor from him as I took it from the one who ruled before you. I will confirm him as king over my house and my kingdom for all time, and his throne will be secure forever.’” (1 Chronicles 17:10b-14)
Leader, this prophecy is about the KINGDOM AGE, the Millennial reign of our Lord. We must know what TIME IT IS! The ancient Greeks had two words for time: The first was chronos, which we still use in words like chronological and anachronism. It refers to clock time – time that can be measured – seconds, minutes, hours, years. The second is Kairos, it refers to ‘THE TIMES’ we are living in. Where chronos is quantitative, kairos is qualitative. It measures moments, not seconds. Further, it refers to the right moment, the opportune moment, the specific dispensation. This is one of the main reasons why it is so important to GET CLOSE to GOD, we KNOW HIM. When we KNOW HIM, we know what we should be doing to be about our Father’s business. Then we WILL BE doing the RIGHT things for this TIME-Kairos. This helps us to prioritize, to allow God control of our schedule. As we LET GO of our lives, and put on JESUS- we see things that make us grateful to God. Romans 13:14; But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to gratify its desires.
Conduit, THANKSGIVING is not only the next to last Thursday of every November, it is a MINDSET, an attitude, it is THE WAY to live a life that honors the one who is the reason for THIS SEASON and our season- JESUS. Time is running short, know your WORD, this will allow you to get to KNOW JESUS more intimately. Author Andrew Woods when talking about his new book on Bible prophesy said, “If we don’t know where we’ve been, and we don’t know where we are going, and we don’t have clear insight, then we don’t know what we should be doing in the present. Knowing what TIME, it is- KAIROS, helps us to be THANKFUL. Today be thankful that the God of the universe picked you and He has chosen a PLAN for your life. Be thankful that HE LOVES you and HE IS RETURNING soon for you. Paul’s FINAL ADVICE to the church in Thessalonica I give to you; See that no one pays back evil for evil, but always try to do good to each other and to all people. Always be joyful. Never stop praying. Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus. Have a mindful, Happy Thanksgiving saint of God!
