Scripture: Psalms 2:7-12
The conflict of earthly Kings versus spiritual Kings continues through Psalm 2. Verse 8 describes God’s commitment to the conflict that the rulers of the earth incur when they break the bonds and cast away the cords of moral, biblical restraint. God is looking for those who will represent Him in declaring, decreeing, prophesying and calling forth biblical justice. Verse 8,9 says, “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 in pieces like a potter’s vessel.’” Verse 12 makes it clear that God is not kidding. He speaks to the political rulers and judges when He says, “Kiss the Son, lest He be angry, And you perish….” Perish is the Hebrew word aw-bad and it means to be exterminated. It is the exact same word that David prayed over his own son, Absalom, when Absalom took the throne. Can we hear ministers praying this over rulers and judges today? God said He would do it. Why are we not asking?
