As I got online this morning, I opened an email from my daughter. She sent me Psalm 2, which I thought was very interesting to read after yesterday’s ruling by SCOTUS on gay marriage.
1 Why do the nations conspire[a]
and the peoples plot in vain?
2 The kings of the earth rise up
and the rulers band together
against the Lord and against his anointed, saying,
3 “Let us break their chains
and throw off their shackles.”
4 The One enthroned in heaven laughs;
the Lord scoffs at them.
5 He rebukes them in his anger
and terrifies them in his wrath, saying,
6 “I have installed my king
on Zion, my holy mountain.”
7 I will proclaim the Lord’s decree:
He said to me, “You are my son;
today I have become your father.
8 Ask me,
and I will make the nations your inheritance,
the ends of the earth your possession.
9 You will break them with a rod of iron[b];
you will dash them to pieces like pottery.”
10 Therefore, you kings, be wise;
be warned, you rulers of the earth.
11 Serve the Lord with fear
and celebrate his rule with trembling.
12 Kiss his son, or he will be angry
and your way will lead to your destruction,
for his wrath can flare up in a moment.
Blessed are all who take refuge in him.
What I found even more telling is that when I was looking at some other things online, I found that SAME portion of scripture on TWO different sites. So in less than ONE HOUR, I saw the above scripture THREE TIMES. When you look at how three represents completion in the scriptures, it looks to me as if the Lord is saying that this world’s “thumbing their noses” at Him is reaching a time of completion, and soon He is going to rebuke them and pour out His wrath.
