Raging heathen are all around. They do not like God or the things of God.
Psalms 2:1 – Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?
Raging heathen are all around. They do not like God or the things of God. They do not like to talk about the things of God either. They get especially mad when you try to deal with them about their soul. It is called conviction. The heathen can talk about anything but the Lord, but especially not their own soul. The Christian is exactly the opposite. They like to talk about the things of God and the health of their soul. They will try to glorify the Saviour and not self. They will exhibit the fruit of the Spirit which is love, joy and peace and not the works of the flesh like hatred, variance and emulations like the heathen.
The raging heathen will often have imaginations or dreams about vain things. They will think up schemes and ways to get more money, ways to get even with someone who did them wrong, or ways to puff themselves up. The heathen’s focus is totally on self. The majority of people fall into this category unfortunately. Raising multiple generations without reference to God has done it. The Christian is exactly the opposite. Instead of vain or self-serving imaginations, they will have dreams about glorifying the Lord and Him getting the glory. The Christian’s thoughts are on the Lord and how he can please Him. The Christian is God-serving and not self-serving. What kind of imaginations do you have? Are you a heathen or a Christian?
