Jesus Rules

June 7, 2009 at 8:02 Leave a comment

Why do the nations conspire and the peoples plot in vain?

The kings of the earth take their stand and the rulers gather together against the Lord and against his Anointed One.

Let us break their chains, they say, “and throw off their fetters.”

The One enthroned in heaven laughs; the Lord scoffs at them.

Then he rebukes them in his anger and terrifies them in his wrath, saying “I have installed my King on Zion, my holy hill.

I will proclaim and decree of the Lord:

He said to me, “You are my Son today I have become your Father.

Ask me,  and I will make the nations your inheritance , the ends of the earth your possession.

You will rule them with and iron scepter; you will dash them to pieces like pottery.

Therefore, you kings, be wise; be warned, you rulers of the earth.

Serve the Lord with fear and rejoice with trembling.

Kiss the Son, lest he be angry and you be destroyed in your way, for his wrath can flare up in a moment.

Blessed are all who take refuge in him.

Psalm 2

Jesus is the King of Kings.  He is the potentate who lifts up rulers to power and the one who brings them down.   He is the mover of history and time bringing history to a close when the Father will give everything to his Son and put his enemies under his feet.
