Scripture: Psalms 2:1-6
Psalm 2 describes a conflict of Kings that began two thousand years ago and may well be about to culminate! Psalm 2 highlights the war by stating, “The kings of the earth set themselves, And the rulers take counsel together against the Lord and His anointed…” This conflict develops between with the Kings of the earth and King Jesus. The political rulers all agree, “Let us break Their bonds in pieces And cast away Their cords from us. He who sits in the heavens shall laugh; The Lord shall hold them in derision. Then He shall speak to them in His wrath, And distress them in His deep displeasure: ‘Yet I have set My King On My holy hill of Zion.’” Why is there very little representation by the church of the holy King against the unholy kings? We represent the King of Kings. There is a myriad of earthly leaders, even some Episcopal and Lutheran in church leaders declaring that they will break the bonds of Jesus and cast away His cords from them. Ordaining homosexuals demands a response because God has set His King on His holy hill of Zion. Where is the King’s response? The King’s response guarantees us the authority to break them with a rod of iron and dash them into pieces like a potter’s vessel. Where is that happening? The church is so busy turning the other cheek that we don’t even know how to use a rod of iron. The end of the age demands a display of the rod of iron! We have yet to stand up and represent King Jesus. We represent Jesus as a Priest who forgives sin, but do not represent Him as a King who judges and destroys the rebellious. We do not have theology for it, but that ends now! This is your theology. It is unfolding as you read. The only problem is, once you read it, you have to do it. Psalm 2 describes a King who judges and wars against rebellious leaders! Representatives of King Jesus, please arise!
