As you know I am using the new Common English Bible in 2012. I am also giving away one copy a week, so get your comments, shares, tweets and posts in to get your free copy today.
I am continuing my study in Psalms 2. You can get the text for this from my previous post on Psalms 2 out of the Common English Bible and my previous post.
Rant – what does this mean? Rave what does this mean? In Strong’s this means they use rage to be tumultuous.
So in other words violently and with anger the nations of the world set themselves against the Lord. Anyone who does not have Jesus as their Personal Lord and Savior is an enemy to the Lord. If you have Jesus Christ as your Personal Lord and Savior you are the anointed of God. I am. So nations, kings and rulers and the unsaved are opposed to me and the Lord.
But the Lord laughs at their futile plans from Heaven. The Lord speaks to those opposing Him. That He has already set His King (Jesus) on His (God’s) Holy Hill, Zion. It is finished. This King is God’s own Son and God begotten Him. Jesus God’s own begotten Son asks the Lord for the heathen as an inheritance the Lord will give them to Jesus and also the Lord will give the uttermost parts of the earth for Jesus’ possession.
Jesus shalt break them (the heathen) with a rod of iron. The rod of iron is a rod of correction. This indicates severity and harshness that will be handed out on the day of judgment at Christ’s return.
There is a warning here: Verse 10 to kings and judges.
There is a command here: Serve the Lord with fear (reverently) and rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son (Jesus) lest He be angry and you’ll perish if you don’t know Him intimately.
There is a promise here: Blessed are all they that put their trust in Jesus.
Until Next Time.
