Scripture Text

Psalm 2 NIV
Why do the nations conspire and the peoples plot in vain? The kings of the earth rise up and the rulers band together against the Lord and against his anointed, saying, “Let us break their chains and throw off their shackles.” The One enthroned in heaven laughs; the Lord scoffs at them. He rebukes them in his anger and terrifies them in his wrath, saying, “I have installed my king on Zion, my holy mountain.” I will proclaim the Lord’s decree: He said to me, “You are my son; today I have become your father. Ask me, and I will make the nations your inheritance, the ends of the earth your possession. You will break them with a rod of iron; you will dash them to pieces like pottery.” Therefore, you kings, be wise; be warned, you rulers of the earth. Serve the Lord with fear and celebrate his rule with trembling. 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.

Introduction

Context And Background
Alison Lo - Interpeting the OT without the NT. (Fristrating) We cannot understand them properly without the N.T events. (Isiah 53). “A Christian interpretation”
We cannot understand the OT scriptures fully and properly without Christ, because he is the subject matter of the OT. To read them without seeing Christ in them is to miss the very person and subject these scriptures are about because Jesus is patterned promised and Present in the OT.
Martin Luther was famous for having said that Christ Can be found on every page of the OT. Jesus is patterned promised and Present in the OT. (Check who said this)
The most important principle of interpretation that Martin Luther used was “Scripture interprets Scripture.” The tools for properly interpreting the Bible are contained in the Bible itself. Thus, he delved into the New Testament to see how Jesus and the apostles had interpreted Scripture. There he found a valuable tool. He discovered that many Old Testament people and institutions were to be understood as types or patterns that foreshadowed and proclaimed the Christ, who would surpass them and fulfill them. Thus, in his Preface to the Psalter, Luther wrote, “The true, the only sense of the Psalms is the Christ-sense.”
John 5:35 NIV
John was a lamp that burned and gave light, and you chose for a time to enjoy his light.
John 5:39 NIV
You study the Scriptures diligently because you think that in them you have eternal life. These are the very Scriptures that testify about me,
is often refered to by Scholars as Royal Psalm, Royal because at one time it would have been understood as having refered to king David of Ancient Isrea l when he was Enthroned on mount zion in Jerrusalem. Perhaps even tothe kings that were decended from him. In that sense it has an imediate literary historical and cultural context concerning Isreals monarchy and her relationship to the nations around them, if the nations are to be blessed then they must submit to Isreals King.
However this pslam sets out an ideal that Isreals ancient Kings failed to live up to, the ideal of a King who would rule to the ends of the Earth, not even Davids Solomon lived up to such a promise.
The church has always understood this Psalm to be Messianic in its emphasis. Basically it points us to Jesus, God’s Chosen King and Only Begotton Son. While it is preferable to understand the psalm first in its historical and literary setting as a “royal psalm,” the eyes of faith must look beyond it to the powerful message of the full establishment of God’s kingdom in Jesus Christ. Not only Is this Psalm about Chirst, as we shall see Christ actualluy Speaks (Testifies) in this ancient Psalm.
It plays out like a Drama.
However as Isreals ancient Kings failed to live up to the psalms ideal, it came to be understood as a “messaianic” psalm messianic because it anticipates and forshadows the comming of a special king who will live up to the ideal. The church has always understoon this Psalm to be Messianic and its fullfilment to be found in Jesus himself picked out a few psalms and “you know this psalm” “This psalm talks about David. It talks about the Psalmist and his immediate environment but it also talks about me. The Church has always understood this psalm to be about Jesus,

In other words This Psalm is about Jesus.
Therefore the church has always understood this Psalm to be Messianic and its fullfilment to be found in Jesus, the True King of Kings.

We hear the protest of the rebelious nations regarding Gods King. Then we here the testimony of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit in Response.

Big Idea

God has established his King, Dont Fight The King. If you want the blessing and favour and life of God, submit to his annointed King. True blessing doesn’t come from being free to live your own life; true happiness comes from following Jesus Christ.
True blessing doesn’t come from being free to live your own life; true happiness comes from following Jesus Christ.

Two Reasons you should care?

1) Rebellion against the king is self destructive and futile, it will not lead to the freedom from God you crave but you crave but to a Hell of your own making.
2) Subnmission leads to the Kings blessing freedom and protection.
2) We all have kings that we seek to serve other than Gods anointed.
3) True Freedom Do you value your Freedom? True Freedom comes through subnmission. It is for Freedfom that Christ has set us free.
