A Thought

“Kiss the Son lest He be angry and you perish in the way.  When His wrath is kindled but a little, blessed are all those who put their trust in Him.”  Psalm 2:12

It is said that in the Hebrew text, the author of this psalm is anonymous.  New Testament sources, however, attribute this psalm to King David himself and believe it to prophesy of the coming Messiah.  It certainly looks this way to Christians but if this is true, then it is speaking far beyond Jesus of Nazareth who “did not come to condemn the world”.

Even if we were to take this psalm apart and argue its finer points, we must not get so caught up in clinical analysis that we overlook the Promise of Hope that is within, the Hope of the Kingdom which will finally and eternally be established!  A place where the reign of the Lord will be unquestioned and unchallenged, where evil will no longer exist.  This is His Kingdom, and only His faithful will dwell.  This is not a threat!  It is the Promise!  BUT – you have to read the entire psalm with an open mind and heart!

Embrace it!  Pray it!  Dwell in it!  Dare to hope for it, but do so in faith and with reverent submission!
