Is Psalm 2 Relevant Today?

This is a short Psalm so it only takes a minute to read it all (KJV)

Psalms 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.

How relevant is this today? I’d say very relevant. It speaks mostly to those called “rulers”. In our nation, one might be inclined to include those who think themselves “elite”. In my own warped sense of things, claiming my birthright as a citizen in a constitutional republic, i.e. self-rule, I would include all citizens. That said, while I do not see us, as citizens, taking counsel against the LORD (YHWH) and against His annointed (Jesus). I can see this of the “elite” and others deemed rulers – rightfully so or not. So what is the bottom line?

Those in positions of power and authority let such get to their heads and then conspire against those whom they have or have usurped authority and power. They do bad things while ignoring and disrespecting Almighty God. You tell me. Is this relevant?

I dare say it is not only relevant but eminently pertinent. The time of reckoning draws nearer every day. You can choose to acknowledge the Creator of heaven and earth and His only begotten Son or you can laugh in derision. Choose wisely.

1 Thessalonians 1:10 And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come.

Romans 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

9 Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.

There will come a time when these things are no longer relevant. You may or may not have an opportunity to change your mind if you scoff now. I, for one, would not want to wager such large stakes. If your mind is made up, so be it, but if you have even an inkling of a doubt, I strongly suggest you follow that thread until you gain the assurance you lack.

God bless,

Andy
