Advent with Messiah: 18 of 24

View the introductory post for these 24 days with Handel’s Messiah.

The second Psalm today—all about resisting Messiah.

Why do the nations so furiously rage together, and why do the people imagine a vain thing? The kings of the earth rise up, and the rulers take counsel together against the Lord, and against His Anointed.Let us break their bonds asunder, and cast away their yokes from us.
-Psalm 2:1-3

He that dwelleth in heaven shall laugh them to scorn; the Lord shall have them in derision.
-Psalm 2:4
Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.
-Psalm 2:9
