PSALM 2

4 Outlines

 

Psalm 2

GOD IN CONTROL

 

As we look around us and see all the perversion, we might get discouraged.  We must remember that God is in control, and He is victorious over all sin.  In Psalm 2 we see four "voices". The first is rebellious man, and the other 3 are each member of the Trinity. In this passage we find:

 

THE REBELLION OF MAN Vss. 1-3

 

THE RESPONSE BY THE FATHER Vss. 4-6

 

THE RULE OF THE SON Vss. 7-9

Jesus will destroy the enemy and establish His millennial kingdom.

 

THE REMINDER FROM THE SPIRIT Vss. 10-12

Psalm 2

PERSONALIZING PSALM 2

 

Psalm 2 is definitely prophetic. First, here is an outline, which I shared with you some time ago:

 

THE REBELLION OF MAN Vss. 1-3

THE RESPONSE BY THE FATHER Vss. 4-6

THE RULE OF THE SON Vss. 7-9

Jesus will destroy the enemy and establish His millennial kingdom.

THE REMINDER FROM THE SPIRIT Vss. 10-12

 

We must remember that prophecy can help us grow spiritually when we apply its truths to our lives.

We can personalize Psalm 2 by asking ourselves the following questions:

 

AM I REBELLING AGAINST GOD? - Vss. 1-3

Is God leading me in one direction, and am I, like Jonah, heading in another direction? (See Jonah 1)

Am I fighting God concerning His perfect will for my life?

Am I doing things I know I shouldn't do, and not doing things I know I should do?

 

IS GOD REBUKING ME? - Vss. 4-6

Is the Lord disciplining me? (Hebrews 12:5-13)

Please remember that all the negative things that happen are not the Lord's rebukes.

He allows trials so we will mature (James 1:2-4, Romans 5:3-5).

When troubles hit, we must examine ourselves for any sin. If we find it, we are to confess and forsake it (1 John 1:9).  If we have honestly examined our lives, and find nothing for which the Lord is disciplining us, we can assume that this is a trial that will mature us.

 

IS JESUS REIGNING IN MY HEART? - Vss. 5-9

One day Jesus will literally reign over all the earth.

Right now, as a Christian, He should be allowed to reign in my life.

Make sure that He is on the throne inside of you. (Romans 12:1, Ephesians 1:22)

 

AM I RESPONDING TO GOD'S ADVICE? - Vss. 10-12

Am I serving the Lord with fear (reverence)?

If I kiss the Son, I am submitting to His lordship. Have I done this?

Am I taking to heart the advice found in all the verses of this Psalm?
