He speaks to them in His deep anger and troubles (terrifies and confounds) them in His displeasure and fury, saying,
Yet have I anointed (installed and placed) My King [firmly] on My holy hill of Zion.
I will declare the decree of the Master: He said to Me, You are My Son; this day [I declare] I have begotten You. [Heb 1:5; Heb 3:5-6; 2Pe 1:17-18]
Ask of Me, and I will give You the nations as Your inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth as Your possession.
You shall break them with a rod of iron; You shall dash them in pieces like potters’ ware. [Rev 12:5; Rev 19:15]
Now therefore, O you kings, act wisely; be instructed and warned, O you rulers of the earth.
Serve the Master with reverent awe and worshipful fear; rejoice and be in high spirits with trembling [lest you displease Him].
Kiss the Son [pay homage to Him in purity], lest He be angry and you perish in the way, for soon shall His wrath be kindled.
O blessed (happy, fortunate, and to be envied) are all those who seek refuge and put their trust in Him! End of quote.
Wow! Earlier In The Afternoon? I Laid In Bed …
Thinking of all temporal preoccupations of mine and at large. Considering my distress and unrest about such spectacle, I asked, what is eternity? Ha! John 17 popped in mind.
I Grabbed My Scriptures And My Spectacles Within The Reach Of My Hands …
I began a loud carefully each verse reading as if to hear what I have not heard before. Wow! Each word resonated deep within washing me clean from all doubts, fears, and misconceptions. Quote:
When Yahushua had spoken these things, He lifted up His eyes to heaven and said,
“Father, the hour has come. Esteem and exalt and honor and magnify Your Son, so that Your Son may esteem and extol and honor and magnify You. Just as You have granted Him power and authority over all flesh (all humankind), now esteem Him so that He may give eternal life to all whom You have given Him.
“And this is eternal life: it means to know (to perceive, recognize, become acquainted with, and understand) You, the only true and real Mighty One, and likewise to know Him, Yahushua as the Messiah, Whom You have sent.
“I have esteemed You down here on the earth by completing the work that You gave Me to do. And now, Father, esteem Me along with Yourself and restore Me to such majesty and honor in Your Presence as I had with You before the world existed.
