Scripture

They say, “Let’s cut the ropes and set ourselves free!”

~Psalms 2:3, CEV

Quote

There is no rebellion against the weak.

~Ya’akov

Rebellion is rooted in our fallen nature. You can see it in the heart of a child but unfortunately, we do not outgrow this spirit of pride that drives us to do things our way. Psalm 2 has been a favorite of mine for years, “Nations, kings and rulers rebel against God and against His anointed [Jesus]. Their attitude is expressed in verse 3, “Let us free ourselves from His rule.”{GNT} “Let’s cut the ropes and set ourselves free!” {CEV}

This expresses the desire of kings, rulers and powerful people. These elites, who hold offices in high places, are not rebelling against us [the impotent and powerless working class], they are rebelling against an authority higher than their own. They are defying God. They are cutting all restraints. They are cutting the ropes that bind them to the mother ship. They want freedom to sail the high seas in their puny craft without any direction or restraint from God.

Obama and the Progressives {Liberals, Democrats} hate the constitution. Why? Because it is a higher authority based on scripture, moral conduct and the product of great minds. Obama, doesn’t want to be connected to Jefferson or Washington. He wants to cut the ropes but it is not simply Jefferson that he loathes. His real rebellion is against God.

What the Progressives are doing to this once great Republic is disturbing to God-fearing, tax-paying, freedom-loving Americans but the Progressive don’t disturb God, they entertain Him. [But the One who rules in heaven laughs. The LORD scoffs at them. Psalm 2:4] God sits on His throne in heaven and laughed at their idiotic foolishness. A fool is one who thinks he is being admired when actually he is the object of scorn and laughter.

How are you going to make it without God when you are breathing His air and walking on His land? Cutting the ropes is not an intelligent move. Actually, I can’t think of one intelligent liberal, can you?
