Psalms 2:1 Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?

   Let us try and answer the above question.  The first reason that the heathen rage is because of who they are, heathen.  The definition of a heathen: pagan, rude, illiterate, barbarous person.  The heathen have no sense, no decency, no tact, and no control.
   Why do the heathen rage the psalmist asks?  The heathen rage because that is all that they know.  Every generation of the heathen has been trained by the previous generation of the heathen to be a heathen.  There must be one to break the vicious cycle of heathenism by turning to Jesus in order for the heathenism to be stifled.  Jesus is the only cure for heathenism!
   Why do the heathen rage?  The heathen rage because they have been taught that force is the way to achieve.  When nothing else works, take what you want by way of force and be satisfied.  But force is not the method that God prescribed in order for us to get what we want or need.  Faith is the method whereby we are to get.  Goliath was forceful, David was faithful.  Haman was forceful, Esther was faithful.  Absalom thought to take the Kingdom by force, but David kept the Kingdom by faith.  The heathen rage believing that force will accomplish all things.  But force only captures, faith saves. 
   Why do the heathen rage?  The heathen rage because of their hatred for the truth.  They that dwell in darkness cannot stand the light.  John 3:19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.  Men by nature resist the light so that their deeds will not be seen.  The heathen make a show, and fight against the truth and rage believing the louder they are and the more that there are of them will certainly cause the truth to fail.  Let it be known to all that the truth is not going anywhere.  The truth will not be defeated.  The truth is more powerful than all the combined forces of evil.  The truth cannot be overthrown by the devil, by the government, and certainly not by the heathen!
