Morning devotion: Read Psalm 110
Psalms 110:1 ¶<<A Psalm of David.>> The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool. 2 The LORD shall send the rod of thy strength out of Zion: rule thou in the midst of thine enemies. 3 Thy people shall be willing in the day of thy power, in the beauties of holiness from the womb of the morning: thou hast the dew of thy youth. 4 The LORD hath sworn, and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek. 5 ¶The Lord at thy right hand shall strike through kings in the day of his wrath. 6 He shall judge among the heathen, he shall fill the places with the dead bodies; he shall wound the heads over many countries. 7 He shall drink of the brook in the way: therefore shall he lift up the head.
Here we arrive at the action part of this Psalm. The Lord will no doubt act upon the kings or rulers of this earth and among the heathen filling their places with dead bodies.
Can you imagine the cost to those who are without and against the Lord in the day of His wrath?
When He speaks of the right hand He is speaking of the authority of God. The right hand is the reference to God’s authority.
Jesus said in Matthew 28:18 “All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.”
Revelation 6:17 For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?
Revelation 11:18 And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.
Psalm 110: 6 He shall judge among the heathen, he shall fill the places with the dead bodies; he shall wound the heads over many countries.
Prophetically speaking, the Lord will bring the nations to Him and will judge them.
Revelation 16:16 And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.
Habakkuk 3:13 Thou wentest forth for the salvation of thy people, even for salvation with thine anointed; thou woundedst the head out of the house of the wicked, by discovering the foundation unto the neck. Selah.
Revelation 19:11 ¶And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. 12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. 13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. 14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. 15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. 16 And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS. 17 And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God; 18 That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.
Psalm 110: 7 He shall drink of the brook in the way: therefore shall he lift up the head.
Imagine, after a hard-fought battle the Lord will take the time to drink a refreshing drink. This type of action happens when there is peace. In peace and quite, the soul drinks of the brook. When enemies are put down and violence is quelled, the peace ensues; then the King of Kings draws from the brook.
His head is lifted as the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
Philippians 2:8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. 9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: 10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; 11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
Jesus will be exalted above every name and everyone will bow at the name of Jesus. It may not look like it now, but it will happen.
As a side note: That is one of the reasons we take the Lord’s supper. 1 Corinthians 11:26 For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord’s death till he come.
The choice is still yours,
