THE END OF PATRIOTISM (Part 3)
“Amen! Come, Lord Jesus”
God will take back the sovereignty on Earth, with tremendous power, during the great tribulation, because it belongs to Him:
“We thank you, Jehovah God, the Almighty, the one who is and who was, because you have taken your great power and begun ruling as king. But the nations became wrathful, and your own wrath came, and the appointed time came for the dead to be judged and to reward your slaves the prophets and the holy ones and those fearing your name, the small and the great, and to bring to ruin those ruining the earth” (Revelation 11: 17,18).
Jehovah God established His Son Jesus Christ as Heavenly King in 1914 and it has been proclaimed by the preaching of the Good News for over 100 years (Matthew 24:14). Nevertheless, nations have responded with scorn and anger to this heavenly enthronement. However, Psalm 2 explains prophetically what will happen to all present nations:
“Why are the nations agitated
And the peoples muttering an empty thing?
The kings of the earth take their stand
And high officials gather together as one
Against Jehovah and against his anointed one.
They say: “Let us tear off their shackles
And throw off their ropes!”
The One enthroned in the heavens will laugh;
Jehovah will scoff at them.
At that time he will speak to them in his anger
And terrify them in his burning anger,
Saying: “I myself have installed my king
On Zion, my holy mountain.”
Let me proclaim the decree of Jehovah;
He said to me: “You are my son;
Today I have become your father.
Ask of me, and I will give nations as your inheritance
And the ends of the earth as your possession.
You will break them with an iron scepter,
And you will smash them like a piece of pottery.”
So now, you kings, show insight;
Accept correction, you judges of the earth.
Serve Jehovah with fear,
And rejoice with trembling.
Honor the son, or God will become indignant
And you will perish from the way,
For His anger flares up quickly.
Happy are all those taking refuge in Him”
