Pastor Wrinkles: The Nations Rage Pt. 4

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.” Psalm 2:6-9

As we look at this next portion of Psalm chapter 2  we come to an interesting description of the rule of Christ upon the Earth. Psalm 2 tells us that when Jesus reigns from the throne in Jerusalem he will rule the nations with a rod of iron. Rev. 2:27, 12;5 and 19:5 reiterate this truth.

What does it mean that Jesus will rule the nations with a rod of iron? Why do you think this will be necessary?

  1. I think that Jesus has to continue to discipline his children because habits of the world don’t disappear overnight. Proverbs 13:24, Those who spare the rod of discipline hate their children. Those who love their children care enough to discipline them. (NLT) Thanks, Pastor J for this series is quite thought provoking.
