Battle Cries: Psalm 2

psalms_battle_cries_logoPsalm 2 continues where Psalm 1 left off. Psalm 1 introduces us to the single Man that blessing comes through; Psalm 2 shows us that He is the Royal Son of God Himself.

The nations rage and scheme and plot, but God does whatever He pleases (Psalm 115:3). The nations will submit to Christ, either willingly (and find blessing in doing so) or forcefully (and find themselves shattered like an iron rod smashing pottery).

Psalm 2 ends where Psalm 1 begins—with blessing or happiness. The blessed Man of Psalm 1 invites anyone and everyone to share in His blessing, if only they would take refuge in Him (2:12).

The only refuge from the crushing wrath of God is God Himself. Jesus takes the crushing on behalf of His people, and they are saved.
