Who is in charge?

In our contemporary society, it's a question we may often ask ourselves! Oh, we know who holds the "top" positions - the various monarchs, and presidents, and prime ministers, etc. But there are theories that those who are really in charge merely use these people to get their own way. Is it the "Bilderberger Group"? Is it George Soros? Are they all united in their aim of a New World Order - that they control?

Such thoughts came to me during my personal devotions, this morning, as I read Psalm 2:
Why do the nations conspire, and the peoples plot in vain?
 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together,
 against YHWH and His anointed, saying, “Let us burst their bonds asunder,
  and cast their cords from us.”
 He who sits in the heavens laughs; YHWH has them in derision.
 Then He will speak to them in His wrath,  and terrify them in His fury, saying,

“I have set My king 
on Zion, My holy hill.” (vs1-6)
This is a time of great uncertainty in many aspects of the world situation. News bulletins, and newspapers, are filled with concerns about the international situation. There is talk of war - whether between the USoA and China; or the USoA and N.Korea; or a full WW III. There has been a rise in anti-Semitism that has alarmed many. Some are using what they claim is simply criticism of the State of Israel

The Bible speaks of a great shaking that will take place before the end of this present age: "For thus says YHWH Sabaoth: 'Once again, in a little while, I will shake the heavens and the earth and the sea and the dry land; and I will shake all nations, so that the treasures of all nations shall come in, and I will fill this house with splendor', says YHWH Sabaoth." (Haggai 2:6-7). There are many - including yours truly - who believe that we are seeing that great shaking at this time. It is a time when we do well to watch the changing situation, and stay close to Father God. 

The assurance that we may have is that YHWH Sabaoth - The LORD of the armies of heaven - is still Sovereign. He is, whether some wish to acknowledge it, or not, the King and Lord of all that is created. He is the One Who is, ultimately, in charge! And His people may be encouraged by the closing words of that second Psalm: "Blessed (Happy) are all who take refuge in Him."

When the heavens are rent, and the Lord Jesus appears on Mt Zion, it will be too late. "'At the acceptable time I have listened to you, and helped you on the day of salvation.' Behold, now is the acceptable time; behold, now is the day of salvation." (II Cor.6:2).

What will you do with Jesus? Neutral you cannot be.
Some day, your heart will be asking: "What will He do with me?"
