Why the Nations Rage

19

Psalm 2 anticipates the triumph of Messiah's Kingdom. There are four stanzas to this psalm: 1-3, 4-6, 7-9, 10-12. How do these four movements present the triumph of the King?

I. Man's rebellion (v. 1-3). (Defiant voice of the world)
A. Description of the rebels.

  1. "Nations" - like Israel, you have rejected Me from being your king (Samuel)
  2. "Kings" - Herod at birth of Jesus; Pilate at trial of Jesus Acts 4:24-27
  3. "Rulers" - "weighty" dignitaries; 1 Cor. the noble and mighty.... rich and wise of world
  4. "People" - all rebel against God, like sheep going their own way. Invictus, "I am the master of my fate, I am the captain of my soul... my head is bloodied but unbowed."
    B. Description of rebellion.
  5. "rage" __ begins with emotion
  6. "plot" __ thinking = meditate in Ps. 1
  7. "set" __ posturing or attitude
  8. "counsel" __ planning or huddle up, seen in the plotting and planning of Chief priests, Sadducees and Pharisees against Jesus
  9. "break bonds" __ rebelling, hatred and defiance
  10. "cast away cords" __ Hos. 11:1-4 chords of love; my yoke is easy
    C. Description of the rightful authority.
  11. The LORD - Jehovah
  12. His anointed. - Messiah

Transition: We continue to see the rightful authority of God and how ludicrous it is to rebel against Him pictured in the next stanza of the song.
