Ps 125:3 – For the rod of the wicked shall not rest upon the lot of the righteous; lest the righteous put forth their hands unto iniquity. There is a clear understanding of the word wicked in the Hebrew the word “rasha” used to know that these wicked people on the earth are nonredeemable to God. “Rasha” denotes the category of people who have done wrong, are still living in sin, and are intent on continuing with wrongdoing; The “wicked” does not seek God; he challenges God in his way of life; he loves violence; oppresses the righteous; does not repay his debts; lays a snare to trap the righteous; the way of the ungodly/wicked shall perish.” The expectation of the righteous includes God’s judgment on the “wicked” in this life that they might be ashamed and overcome by sorrows. They fall by their own devices, and die a premature death, and is expected that at the time of their death there will be great shouting: “When it goeth well with the righteous, the city rejoiceth: when the wicked perish, there is shouting”. Psalms 58:3-4 – The wicked are estranged from the womb: they go astray as soon as they be born, speaking lies. 4) Their poison is like the poison of a serpent: they are like the deaf adder that stoppeth her ear. Ps 10:4 – The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek after God: God is not in all his thoughts.
In Psalms 125:3 the word “rod” is speaking about a tribe or a clan of people having the scepter (a mark of authority). This nation was established through the faith of our Forefathers as a Christian nation. Their guidance for the establishment of this nation came from the Bible and a sovereign God who directed them by His Spirit to bring forth the Constitution of the United States as well as the Bill of Rights. It was the intent of God that Christians would maintain the rod of His righteousness over this nation, but wicked people began to creep in little by little to mingle and contaminate the seed that birthed this nation, this seed originated from God. Jude 3-4 – Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints. 4) For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ. Out of this came the separation of Church and State, a perverse illusion originating from ungodly people and conspired by the pit of hell. Even now this has become so perverse that its intent is to trodden under foot the biblical foundations of our nation, this same contaminated seed is thriving in our nation to rewrite the history of this nation. These whose minds been darkened by satan himself, attempt to exclude Christians from free speech and public prayer, as well as moral conscious causing them to hauled into courts, in a perverted justice system that levis huge fines on upstanding Christians in the community that will not go against moral conscious, because of their faith in God and their conscious, which come by His Holy Spirit. In these days there is an onslaught of the ungodly in this nation against Christians who will not bend to disintegrating moral conscious of the masses around us to achieve their goals making Christians a non-factor in this nation! We must know that this evil is conceived by satan.
There is an ongoing silent migration away from the church of an estimated 3,500 individuals each and every day. A 2014 study indicated that over 1.2 million people will leave the church in the next year. This came from a study from 2014 by Barna Research and the Fuller Institute, however, as darkness increases due to the darkness in the heart of mankind this “falling away” increases. Remember Ps 125:3, if the wicked usurp authority over the land and turn the heart of the nation to greater darkness the righteous will put forth their hand to do iniquity! This is what the word tells us, so the greater reason for Christians leaving the Church is that they have allowed this spiritual darkness around them to effect their faith and love for God. Also we can’t leave out the prophetic evidence of Paul’s writings and others. (Read Part 2)
