The Glorious Divine

Rebellious nations rage,
But their plots are in vain,
Though politicians scheme and plan,
And spin like hurricanes.

For high upon a throne,
Sits One from David’s line,
He laughs at them and speaks His wrath,
The Glorious Divine.

The Father made His will,
And gave all to the Son,
Nations are His inheritance,
Ruled by a hand of iron.

All rulers of the earth,
Come tremble and revere,
Bow down and kiss the Holy One,
Submit to Him in fear.

For high upon His throne,
Christ shall reign for all time,
And blessed are those saved by Him,
The Glorious Divine.

Behind the lines

Why do the nations rage and the peoples plot in vain?
The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD and against his Anointed, saying,
“Let us burst their bonds apart and cast away their cords from us.”

He who sits in the heavens laughs; the Lord holds them in derision.
Then he will speak to them in his wrath, and terrify them in his fury, saying, “As for me, I have set my King on Zion, my holy hill.”

I will tell of the decree: The LORD said to me, “You are my Son;
today I have begotten you. Ask of me, and I will make the nations your heritage, and the ends of the earth your possession. You shall break them with a rod of iron and dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.”

Now therefore, O kings, be wise; be warned, O rulers of the earth.
Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and you perish in the way, for his wrath is quickly kindled. Blessed are all who take refuge in him. (Psalm 2 ESV)

Jesus Christ is the Offspring of David and God’s Anointed Son. God’s covenant promise to David of an everlasting throne (2 Samuel 7:16, 1 Kings 8:25, Psalm 89:29, Jeremiah 33:17) was fulfilled by Christ.

Is Christ your King?
