SUNDAY, AUGUST 24
Scripture: Psalm 2:10-12
Verses 10-12 says, “Now therefore, be wise, O kings; Be instructed, you judges of the earth. Serve the Lord with fear, And rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son, lest He be angry, And you perish in the way, When His wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all those who put their trust in Him.” When the Psalm says ‘Kiss the Son, lest He be angry, And you perish in the way …” it is not kidding. God is not kidding. The question is, what kindles God’s wrath a little? How about how his kids are treated! Another is how his kids act! In Psalm 143 David’s prayer moves God to wrath. The fruit of wrath: Ahithophel hangs himself and Absalom gets three spears in the heart. In Psalms 2, the judges have a specific warning. The judges are warned – either serve the Lord with trembling or you will perish. What does that tell you about the Judicial Christ and what He is about to do to judges? It tells you that the judges are about to meet their Maker. Will we represent Him or will we not? The time to make that decision is now. Pray that God rewards every judge according to their works as they have arrogantly struck down laws prohibiting evil, visit them and strike them down. Loose the Covenant Avenger on every judge who supports shedding innocent blood and those who also promote perversion!
