July 18: The Nations

Psalm 75

We give thanks to You, O God, we give thanks! 
For Your wondrous works declare that Your name is near.

 “When I choose the proper time, 
I will judge uprightly.

The earth and all its inhabitants are dissolved; 
I set up its pillars firmly. Selah

 “I said to the boastful, ‘Do not deal boastfully,’
and to the wicked, ‘Do not lift up the horn.  Do not lift up your horn on high; 
do not speak with a stiff neck.’”

For exaltation comes neither from the east 
nor from the west nor from the south.  But God is the Judge: 
He puts down one, 
and exalts another. For in the hand of the Lord there is a cup, 
and the wine is red; 
it is fully mixed, and He pours it out; 
surely its dregs shall all the wicked of the earth
Drain and drink down.

But I will declare forever, 
I will sing praises to the God of Jacob.

 “All the horns of the wicked I will also cut off, 
but the horns of the righteous shall be exalted.”

Let nations and leaders beware that God the Father has given all authority to judge to Yeshua, God the Son.  Yeshua is both the Advocate and Judge.  Although Satan will bring accusations, those whose sins have been cleansed and forgiven will be declared “righteous.”

PRAY FOR THE LEADERS OF YOUR NATION TO HUMBLE THEMSELVES BEFORE GOD, REPENT AND TRUST YESHUA AS THEIR MESSIAH.
