6 For the Lord declares, “I have placed my chosen king on the throne
in Jerusalem, on my holy mountain.”
7 The king proclaims the Lord’s decree:
“The Lord said to me, ‘You are my son.
Today I have become your Father.
Your Son is risen, risen with healing in His wings, and not for the diseased, only. Even for souls and families and nations. This we proclaim, Father, and on behalf of those who cannot yet speak for themselves.
8 Only ask, and I will give you the nations as your inheritance,
the whole earth as your possession.
9 You will break them with an iron rod
and smash them like clay pots.’”
There is a King upon a throne (Colossians 3:1,2) The Father and the Son reign on high, and in us. The Son asks for the nations, and we ask with Him. I especially want the United States. And Germany. Also Poland. And Russia. Others want China and the Philippines and Ireland. We want them for our inheritance, as they are the Lord’s and we are His.
10 Now then, you kings, act wisely!
Be warned, you rulers of the earth!
11 Serve the Lord with reverent fear,
and rejoice with trembling.
Always remembering … the nations are but delineators … NATIONS are people groups, men and women, marriages, families, children, and Lord God, we love the people that have been too long deceived wherever the Gospel of Jesus Christ has been prevented or perverted, either one. Send Your Word, heal them, deliver them from their destructions! (Psalm 107:20)
12 Submit to God’s royal son, or he will become angry,
and you will be destroyed in the midst of all your activities—
for his anger flares up in an instant.
But what joy for all who take refuge in him!
We speak of those, we think of those, who need to submit to truth … all around us we see and we know those who have spurned Your truth, but we will go before them in this truth, Father: we are called to care, to care deeply, to believe and to intercede in faith, in hope, with enduring love, until all those we love have found their true refuge. Father! We say “all” as Jesus said, “all.” The saving and keeping are up to You, but we keep them in our hearts and in the faith of the Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son. Amen.
