Nations have been greatly humbled by the CORONA VIRUS, making us realize that we cannot DENY, REJECT and REBEL against God’s RULE in our lives. The best place a nation can be in is in the HANDS of God.
“Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, the people He has chosen as His own inheritance.” Psalm 33:12
Nations that rebel against God have put themselves on the side of CRUSHING DEFEAT and JUDGMENT.
On the other hand, if God’s RULERSHIP through His Son Jesus Christ is EMBRACED, GREAT BLESSINGS are expected.
Here are the 4 POINTS to this Psalm:
I. The Rebellion of Nations and Kings vv. 1 – 3
1. The Rebellion of Nations and their Evil Plans v. 1
2. The Rebellion of Kings and their Worthless Declaration (of Independence) v. 2 – 3
II. The Response of God the Father vv. 4 – 6
1. His Mindset – v. 4
2. His Powerful Declaration – vv. 5 – 6
III.The Response of God the Son – vv. 7 – 9
1. The Son’s proclamation of the Father’s Mission for Him – v. 7
2. The Reward of the Father v. 8
3. The Judgment of Nations and Kings by the Son v. 9
IV.The CALL of the Father to repentance – vv. 10 – 12
1. Discern and Heed v. 10
2. Worship and Exult in the Lord v. 11
3. Worship the Son who is the Judge v. 12
4. The Blessedness of Repentance and Submission to Christ- v. 12
We were able to finish our first two points and now we are ready to go to our FINAL TWO POINTS.
QUESTION: Which side do you belong? The WINNING TEAM or the LOSING ONE.
Our response to Jesus Christ determines whose team we will belong.
