Psalm 2

“1 Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? 2. The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed, saying, 3 Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.  4. He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision. 5. Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.  6. Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion. 7 I will declare the decree: the Lord hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.  8. Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.  9. Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.  10 Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth.  11. Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling.  12. Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little.  Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.”

I was reading this the other day and could not help but wonder what would happen if the people in control of our world, and the people in Washington should read this passage and take it to heart.

  1. They would turn from their sin and be saved! Then of course they would be voted out of office because the Scripture is prophetic and the nations shall rage and the kings of the earth shall stand against the Lord and His Anointed One. Rebellion is in the job description.

    • And that brings up something I have never quite figured out, that maybe you can explain to me, Pastor J. If the kings of the earth are supposed to stand against the Lord and his Anointed One, why are we told to pray for Godly leaders that will listen to Godly advice and act on Biblical principals? And why are we to pray for the peace of Jerusalem if the Bible says there will be no peace until Jesus comes back? I have never been able to make those line up so they make sense. What am I missing?
