Psalm 2

Hi folks!

This Sunday for our Creation to Consummation scripture reading, as we continue to read through significant texts in redemptive history, we will be doing a responsive reading of Psalm 2. 

“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.”

Regarding this psalm, respected theologian Willem VanGemeren says this: “The theological significance of Psalm 2 lies in the hope that it entails.  The anointed king rules by God’s appointment.  The wise response of repentance is victory for the Messiah and a token of the final victory over his enemies, the opponents of God’s kingdom.  From the perspective of typology, Jesus is the fulfillment of the psalm.  He is born of David’s lineage, has a right to David’s throne, is the Son of God in a unique way, and will ultimately subdue all enemies under his feet.”  I could not have said it better.  Looking forward to worshipping with all of you tomorrow!

Blessings,

2 Samuel 7:5, 12-13

Hi everyone!

Hope you’re having a great week!  This Sunday for our Creation to Consummation scripture reading, we will be reading together 2 Samuel 7:5, 12-13. 

“Go and tell my servant David, ‘Thus says the LORD:...“When your days are fulfilled and you lie down with your fathers, I will raise up your offspring after you, who shall come from your body, and I will establish his kingdom.  He shall build a house for my name, and I will establish the throne of his kingdom forever.”’” 

This passage is monumental within the scope of redemptive history and is known as the Davidic Covenant.  That is, it is covenant, or a solemn promise, that God made with David that someday David would have a son whose throne and kingdom would be established forever.  Clearly this was not a reference to Solomon or even to Solomon’s kingdom which came to an end in 586 BC.  Rather this promise looks forward to the Son of David who would be born a thousand years after him in the little town of Bethlehem and whose kingdom and throne would be established forever and who would overthrow the greatest enemies of God’s people—sin, death, and Satan.  Quite providentially, we will be talking about the coming of the King in triumphant procession this Sunday.  Looking forward to worshipping with you this Sunday at the Throne of Grace.

Blessings,

Hexon
