An Historical Present
History is repeating itself.
What you read in Vienna Prelude is happening right now in our own country.
As we see wicked rulers mock God and tear down the strong Biblical foundation of America, there is a temptation to give in to despair.
What does the Lord say about tyrants?
What does scripture tell us about those who have no fear of God?
20 Shall the throne of iniquity, which devises evil by law,
Have fellowship with You?
21 They gather together against the life of the righteous,
And condemn innocent blood.
22 But the Lord has been my defense,
And my God the rock of my refuge.
23 He has brought on them their own iniquity,
And shall cut them off in their own wickedness;
The Lord our God shall cut them off.
We will see the end of them!
Jesus is our eternal King!
Jesus is Lord!
