December 7, 2021 – Psalm 2:4-6 & Revelation 19:13-16

Psalm 2 is made up of four stanzas, each describing God’s Anointed and his work. In the verses of this second stanza is found great encouragement: Let men do what they will, they will not thwart God’s purposes nor will they defeat and pull down his King: “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’” (Psalm 2:4-6).


John saw one who is described thusly: “He is clothed in a robe dipped in blood, and the name by which he is called is The Word of God. And the armies of heaven, arrayed in fine linen, white and pure, were following him on white horses. From his mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations, and he will rule them with a rod of iron. He will tread the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God the Almighty. On his robe and on his thigh he has a name written, 'King of kings and Lord of lords'" (Revelation 19:13-16).


Charles Spurgeon on these verses: “Is not that a grand exclamation! . . . Jehovah’s will is done, and man’s will frets and raves in vain. God’s Anointed is appointed, and shall not be disappointed.”


He has sounded forth the trumpet that shall never call retreat

He is sifting out the hearts of men before His judgment-seat

Oh, be swift, my soul to answer, oh be jubilant, my feet

His truth is marching on

Glory, Glory hallelujah

Glory, Glory hallelujah

Glory, Glory hallelujah

His truth is marching on. -- Julia Ward Howe (1861)
