Escape Destruction

The rulers of the earth scheme together to throw off the restraints of the Law Giver and His Judge.

The LORD mocks, rebukes, and horrifies in wrath as He announces His Son, the Ruling Reconciler.

Heed the alert, O rulers, serve The LORD, rejoice in humility, and embrace The Son to avoid destruction and enter the Blessed Shelter.

Psalm 2

Why do the nations conspire
    and the peoples plot in vain?
The kings of the earth take their stand
    and the rulers gather together
against the Lord
    and against his Anointed One.
“Let us break their chains,” they say,
    “and throw off their fetters.”
The One enthroned in heaven laughs;
    the Lord scoffs at them.
Then he rebukes them in his anger
    and terrifies them in his wrath, saying,
“I have installed my King
    on Zion, my holy hill.
I will proclaim the decree of the Lord:
He said to me, “You are my Son;
    today I have become your Father.
Ask of me,
    and I will make the nations your inheritance,
    the ends of the earth your possession.
You will rule them with an iron scepter;
    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 rejoice with trembling.
12 Kiss the Son, lest he be angry
    and you be destroyed in your way,
for his wrath can flare up in a moment.
    Blessed are all who take refuge in him.
