Adam’s Unruly Brood

“God’s in charge, as always, His eyes taking everything in, His eyelids unblinking, examining Adam’s unruly brood inside and out, not missing a thing.” (Psalm 11:4 The Message).

From the earliest days of recorded history up to this present moment in time, Mankind has been obsessed with self-exaltation. The first smooth-talking politician to arrive on the scene was a man named Nimrod.

Nimrod, one of Noah’s grandsons, was a rebel of self-proclaimed valor. He single-handedly subverted the existing patriarchal order of society by setting up a chieftainship based on personal courage and maintained by aggression. In defiance of the Lord, he invaded the land of Shem, his uncle, and then violently set up an empire of conquest.

But even as the Lord confused their languages and confounded their plot, so it will be in this day. “Why do the nations plot, and why do their people make useless plans? The kings of this earth have all joined together to turn against the LORD and his chosen one. They say, ‘Let’s cut the ropes and set ourselves free!’ In heaven the LORD laughs as he sits on His throne, making fun of the nations. The LORD becomes furious and threatens them. His anger terrifies them as he says, “I’ve put My king on Zion, My sacred hill.” (Psalm 2:1-6).

I want you to do something right now. Look up. I mean, tilt your head back as far as you possibly can, and look straight up. Are you doing it? OK, now spit!

Obviously you would be an idiot to follow my suggestion, but mankind has been doing that very thing since Nimrod first shook his fist in the face of God. The lesson we learn is simple and unmistakable: “That which a man spits against heaven shall fall back into his own face.”

What Nimrod started so long ago will end, sooner or later, with the emergence of a smooth and pompous Person we now know only as The Antichrist. But, consider this carefully; before the World will ever embrace such a single individual as The Antichrist, the people must first accept a mindset that is decidedly anti-christian. And that, my dear friends, is precisely what is afoot in our world today. The stage is being set for History’s Final Act.

Nevertheless, “God’s in charge, as always, His eyes taking everything in, His eyelids unblinking, examining Adam’s unruly brood inside and out, not missing a thing.” (Psalm 11:4).

From His throne in Heaven The LORD looks at the whole world, and He searches out the secrets of the heart. His eyes are in every place, beholding the evil and the good. He will answer each man according to his ways. And He will show Himself to be the Strong Deliverer on behalf of those whose hearts are loyal to Him in a day when rebellion against heaven is the popular trend.

Why, He is even looking at you right now!
