Psalm Two: A Short Psalm With A Big Message

 

For such a small or short Psalm, it packs a punch, covering some big topics from a high altitude.  Its a really good teaching.   Surprisingly so.

Psa 2:1  Wherefore did the heathen rage, and the nations imagine vain things?
Psa 2:2  The kings of the earth stood up, and the rulers gathered themselves together, against the Lord, and against his Christ;
Psa 2:3  saying, Let us break through their bonds, and cast away their yoke from us.
Psa 2:4  He that dwells in the heavens shall laugh them to scorn, and the Lord shall mock them.
Psa 2:5  Then shall he speak to them in his anger, and trouble them in his fury.
Psa 2:6  But I have been made king by him on Sion his holy mountain,
Psa 2:7  declaring the ordinance of the Lord: the Lord said to me, Thou art my Son, to-day have I begotten thee.
Psa 2:8  Ask of me, and I will give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the ends of the earth for thy possession.
Psa 2:9  Thou shalt rule them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces as a potter’s vessel.
Psa 2:10  Now therefore understand, ye kings: be instructed, all ye that judge the earth.
Psa 2:11  Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice in him with trembling.
Psa 2:12  Accept correction, lest at any time the Lord be angry, and ye should perish from the righteous way: whensoever his wrath shall be suddenly kindled, blessed are all they that trust in him.

1Wherefore did the heathen rage, and the nations imagine vain things?2The kings of the earth stood up, and the rulers gathered themselves together, against the Lord, and against his Christ;3saying, Let us break through their bonds, and cast away their yoke from us.4He that dwells in the heavens shall laugh them to scorn, and the Lord shall mock them.5Then shall he speak to them in his anger, and trouble them in his fury.

6But I have been made king by him on Sion his holy mountain,7declaring the ordinance of the Lord: the Lord said to me, Thou art my Son, to-day have I begotten thee.8Ask of me, and I will give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the ends of the earth for thy possession.9Thou shalt rule them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces as a potter’s vessel.

10Now therefore understand, ye kings: be instructed, all ye that judge the earth.11Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice in him with trembling.12Accept correction, lest at any time the Lord be angry, and ye should perish from the righteous way: whensoever his wrath shall be suddenly kindled, blessed are all they that trust in him.

First Section

So we see in the first section that the speaker is speaking in the future, speaking from a time not yet arrived.  It reads as directly copied from the Revelation.  The war against the Messiah is about to begin, the last, final battle after which Satan is cast into the fire.  Then Yahuah shall “speak to them in His anger, and trouble them in His fury”.  So daddy is supremely angry and He will destroy them in His fury.  “Fury” isn’t mere rage.  “Fury” brings destruction.

Second Section

In the second section, coming forward or closer in time, to a time before the time of the Revelation, we learn that Yahusha speaks.  He announces to the Psalmist that He was made King by Yahuah on the Holy mountain of Yahuah in Israel by the words “You are my Son.  Today I have begotten you.”  The word “begotten” specifically refers to the male aspect of child creation.  So when the Words say “only begotten son”, it means that that son is the only son created specifically by the Father, and not by any other means.  Adam could be considered as an “only begotten”, except Adam was created from mud.  A golem 🙂  with the breath of life blown into him from Yahuah Himself.  Adam is not a begotten son.

Yahusha then was “begotten”.  Although He was with Yahuah from the beginning, and created everything and is Yahuah, Yahusha now is the lamb worthy to open the scrolls, to rule with the rod of iron, to cease holding all things together.  The Son of Man, indeed, for Yahuah Himself sits upon the Sapphire Throne, dwelling within “impenetrable light”.  YAH!

I hope you can measure this in your spirit. Son of Man – the part of Yahuah manifested as man in the form of “Jesus” because of the form of man.   Those of you who discern this, shalom.

Third Section

An epilogue.  Messaging to the leaders of the world to serve Yahuah and submit to Him or else face the reality that they risk abandoning Truth, abandoning the Way and sudden destruction be poured out upon them, while those who trust Yahuah in the destructive process of purifying man will be blessed during that same process.

We plainly see that the rulers of the world reject Torah, therefore their claim to Yahusha is an empty one.   One cannot serve both Yahuah and rebellion, or Righteousness and unrighteousness; “God and mammon”.  “There is none who is righteous, no not one”.  Though this includes you and me, we endeavor to follow His commands.  We submit to honesty, fidelity, temperance, love, patience, modesty, clean food, the Sabbath, tzit tzit and much more.  We recognize Truth as absolute and reject the notion that we, too, can become as God.

Yahuah already made us in His image.  We have His attributes but we struggle with our flesh mind, often specifically because Yahuah gave us such immense power that we want to be our own god.  Its common and we have all done it.  This power given by Yahuah is why Yahusha said that we could do even greater things than He.  We possess the potential, but fall short in execution of that potential.  When Sha-ul said that “sin is in the flesh”, that does not mean that sin is wired into our DNA like eye-color or height, but that because we are created in the image of Yahuah, we do have immense power and we struggle between obedience and self-serving.  Those with significant Righteous strength stand Righteously, as did Jöb, and attract the wrath of Satan, like Jöb.

Ask Yahuah to build a hedge around you.  I do.  I don’t want satan to have access to me or my life in any way.  If Jöb can have a hedge around him, Jer wants one too.

Yahuah does not come to destroy His people.  He does not come to punish the Righteous.  He comes in fury to destroy the kings of the world and their armies who chose to follow Satan rather than submit to the One entity worthy of obedience.

See?  Small Psalm, big message.
