“A Messianic Promise” Psalm 2

The Spoken Word Christian Church https://thespokenwordchurch.com

About 1000 years before the birth of Jesus, David wrote a prophetic psalm about God’s plan to establish an eternal King, solving once for all the problem of rebellion that began with Adam and Eve.

The solution to the problem of rebellion is Jesus.  In this message Teaching Pastor John Chipman reminds us that God is faithful and God’s promises are always “yes” in Christ.

Our Bible Text for Today’s Message is from the Psalms

Psalm 2

Why do the nations conspire[a]
    and the peoples plot in vain?
The kings of the earth rise up
    and the rulers band together
    against the Lord and against his anointed, saying,
“Let us break their chains
    and throw off their shackles.”

The One enthroned in heaven laughs;
    the Lord scoffs at them.
He rebukes them in his anger
    and terrifies them in his wrath, saying,
“I have installed my king
    on Zion, my holy mountain.”

I will proclaim the Lord’s decree:

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 break them with a rod of iron[b];
    you will dash them to pieces like pottery.”

10 Therefore, you kings, be wise;
    be warned, you rulers of the earth.
11 Serve the Lord with fear
    and celebrate his rule with trembling.
12 Kiss his son, or he will be angry
    and your way will lead to your destruction,
for his wrath can flare up in a moment.
    Blessed are all who take refuge in him.
