There Is Only One Chosen One

There is only one Chosen One. On the heals of Donald Trump accepting and retweeting a tweet that said he was the Second Coming to Israel, we have Rick Perry, former governor of Texas, saying Trump is the Chosen One. This was clearly a religious reference.

But the author of Psalms says otherwise in Chapter 2 in the NIV translation. The Psalmist even warns the leaders of the world want to throw off God, but God laughs in the heavens:

Why are the nations so shaken up and the people planning foolish things? The kings of the earth stand in a line ready to fight, and all the leaders are against the Lord and against His Chosen One. They say, “Let us break their chains and throw them away from us.”
He Who sits in the heavens laughs. The Lord makes fun of them. Then He will speak to them in His anger and make them afraid, saying, “But as for Me, I have set My King on Zion, My holy mountain.” I will make known the words of the Lord. He said to Me, “You are My Son. Today I have become Your Father. Ask of Me, and I will give the nations for you to own. The ends of the earth will belong to You. You will break them using a piece of iron. And they will be broken in pieces like pots of clay.”
10 So, kings, be wise. Listen, you rulers of the earth. 11 Serve the Lord with fear, and be full of joy as you shake in fear. 12 Kiss the Son. Be afraid that He may be angry and destroy you in the way. For His anger is quick. Happy are all who put their trust in Him.

The leaders of the world are in for a very fierce judgement setting themselves up to be the Chosen One. Good grief, what are they thinking? 
Christ was raised from the dead. At that point, He was begotten as Son, as in the beginning He was the Word, and was with God and was God. Christ is not in any way lesser to the Father, and neither is the Spirit. Three persons, one God, one holy will. 

Nations that have separation of church and state are actually more stable. The Apostles are the government of God who does not need the secular or religious leaders of nations and will bend them to do His will. However, even nations that hold to separation of church and state can become corrupt. We are seeing that with Donald Trump, a vile and disgusting human being. Pray he doesn't screw up the world too much going forward.
