HERE is a link to Psalm 2 for your reading.
It seems our nation tries more and more each day to break the chains, and throw off the shackles of God’s truth. Just last weekend my daughter and I went to a mall where we spoke with a bearded man wearing lipstick and makeup. His heart did not want the shackles of male and female distinctions intertwined in God’s creation.
The Lord looks down from heaven and laughs at men and women who attempt to throw the shackles of truth from their necks; he laughs, but also scoffs and rebukes them in his anger. You see, he has given the nations as an inheritance to his Son Jesus. He will not be like the Father in the end and simply laugh and rebuke. Jesus will smash them like an iron rod thrown down upon brittle clay pots.
This Psalm calls us to serve the Lord with fear, and celebrate (instead of trying to throw off) his rule over us with trembling. We are to kiss (or greet and embrace) the Son of God and take refuge in him. The Son’s wrath can flare up in a moment.
Blessed are all those who take refuge in the Son, and celebrate his lordship over the nations. After all, he says his yoke is easy and his burden is light (Matt 11:30).
