“Too often we look upon government as the forces that control the earth's affairs, yet these are no more than a fly on the wheel. It is the Word of God, which decides all that is done on the world's stage.
If God's enemies continue to harden themselves against the truth by refusing to repent, destruction is all they can look forward to. 2 Pet. 2:12 (NIV11) But these people blaspheme in matters they do not understand. They are like unreasoning animals, creatures of instinct, born only to be caught and destroyed, and like animals they too will perish. And they may know beforehand what will destroy them-- the Word of God: "Rev. 11:5 (AMP) And if anyone attempts to injure them, fire pours from their mouth and consumes their enemies; if anyone should attempt to harm them, thus he is doomed to be slain. These men freely butchered and burned the saints, yet the Word the saints preached will destroy their enemies. It lives on to avenge the saints on their enemies. God's Word will give them the fatal stroke.
The sword of the Word has a long reach; it is at the breast of every enemy God has. And although they feel secure and powerful, sooner or later God will open one door or another to let destruction come upon them. The prophet expressed the impending ruin of the Philistines by announcing: "Woe unto the inhabitants of the sea coast... the Word of the Lord is against you" Zephaniah 2:5; as if he was saying, "You are a lost people and the whole world cannot save you now, because the Word of the Lord is against you." Like lightning, the curse of the Word burns to the very root of sin. All seven nations of Canaan fell into the mouth of Israel as ripe fruit falls into the mouth of the one who shakes the tree. The Word of the Lord had gone before them and the fate of their foes was certain.
Too often we look upon government as the forces that control the earth's affairs, yet these are no more than a fly on the wheel. It is the Word of God, which decides all that is done on the world's stage. "I have this day set you over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out, and to pull down, and to destroy... to build, and to plant" Jeremiah 1:10. The whole earth is God's; and who has power to build on His ground, or pull down, but Himself?Quoted material from, ”The Christian in Complete Armour Daily Readings in Spiritual Warfare” by Gurnall and James S Bell. http://www.moodypublishers.com/pub_productDetail.aspx?id=41823&pid=53617
