Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us. He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision. Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure. Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion. Psalm 2:1-6
Why is the birth of Jesus Christ such an important and glorious moment for all creation? Well aside from the fact that Christ atoned for our sin and justified us before God, Jesus Christ has also established his throne as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. This was the promise of the Messiah, that God would become our King and reign. As the scripture says “I have set my King upon My holy hill of Zion”
This is why the wise men asked “Where is the King of the Jews , that we may worship him” (Matthew 2:2) This is why all the angels of Heaven worshiped and celebrated the birth of Christ saying “Glory to God in the highest , peace on earth and good will to men” (Luke 2:14) They understood that God was not just saving the world, but God was establishing his throne through Christ
When we look at the state of the world, its no different than it was in Psalm 2. The kings of the earth (governments) set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together against The Lord and his anointed. The world today is still at war against God, they continually reject his Law, and they reject The only begotten Son , Jesus Christ. Is God worried? No, God is laughing from his throne, because all these wicked and evil forces are blinded puppets of Satan. They are all already defeated and they will all have their appointed time in the Lake of Fire
I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee. Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession. Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel. Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth. Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him. Psalm 2:7-12
The prophecy of God becoming a man to save and rule the world with a rod of iron. Thou are my Son, this day have I begotten thee, the promise of the Son of God coming to Earth has finally been fulfilled in the lowly manger in Bethlehem. The King above all Kings , born of a virgin, born under The Law, to save us from our sins and establish Gods eternal Kingdom
Kiss the Son, some other translations also say “Give Sincere Homage” meaning submit and obey The Lord Jesus Christ, because Christ is worthy of all praise and honor. Blessed are they who put their trust in Him (Christ) Those who reject Christ are already defeated along with Satan and his evil empire, Amen!
