Scripture: Psalm 2:7,8
Psalm 2:7,8 ties into the statement we just studied in verses 1-3. Verses 7,8 says, “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.” The clash between the representatives of God and the political leaders of verses 1-3 seems to be one of perceived ownership. The religious leaders believe God created the Heavens and the earth and is the Owner of it. And as the Owner of it, He is the One that determines the rules. The politicians, however, believe because they were elected, they are the highest authority in the land. They believe the church must bow its knee. As we approach the last days it is likely we will encounter this conflict in even greater manifestation. Do we love our Father, our Savior and His Word enough to embrace the whole counsel of God? Are we truly willing to represent Him?
