Scripture: Psalm 2
There are two primary judicial Psalms that are foundational to know in order to walk with the Lord in the end-times. Psalm 2 is the first. Psalm 2 highlights the current issue that God is raising with the judges of the land. Psalm says, “Why do the nations rage, And the people plot a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, And the rulers take counsel together, Against the Lord and against His Anointed, saying, ‘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. I will declare the decree: ‘ The Lord has said to Me, ‘You are My Son, Today I have begotten You. Ask of Me, and I will give You The nations for Your inheritance, And the ends of the earth for Your possession. You shall break them with a rod of iron; You shall dash them to pieces like a potter’s vessel.’ 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.” Psalm 2 highlights the war between satan’s leaders and the Lord’s true church leaders. Political kings and spiritual Kings oppose each other in the last days. As spiritual Kings ask for judgment, it starts with the judges. That is why verse 10 says, “Now therefore, be wise, O kings; Be instructed, you judges of the earth.” The war on earthly judges is just starting. And whether or not we can bring the judicial Hand of God on earthly judges depends on whether or not we are willing to develop the righteousness required. The church is called to win, but we have to do righteousness so we can do judgment. And the judgment on foolish, earthly judges will show the nations that Jesus is Lord. Are we willing to do righteousness? Are we willing to stand on our covenant and do judgment? Will we pray the prayers that will bring judgment on earth’s wayward judges? The time is here to incline a hearing ear to the Voice of the Spirit!
