Psalm 2 is like an outline of the future, but it seems like the future is coming true today. Notice what each verse says.
Verse 1: God asked, “Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?”
Daymond’s interpretation” “Why do the heathen (non-Jews, could be Muslims) get all worked up, protest, riot, injure and kill others, and harbor thoughts (such as the destruction of Israel) that will never come to fruition?”
Verses 2-3: God said, “The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed, saying Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.”
Daymond’s interpretation: “What would cause non-Jewish political and religious leaders to call a meeting of the UN Security Council and adopt an Antichrist spirit to plot against Jehovah and His Messiah? What would cause them to say, ‘Let us break the restraints (Scriptures, prophecies, etc.) of Jehovah and Jesus with a UN resolution and decide who we want to give the Promised Land to?’”
Verse 4: “He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh; the Lord shall have them in derision.”
Daymond’s interpretation: “The God that dwells in heaven will laugh at your pious resolution. Because you have mocked Him He will have you mocked.”
Verse 5: “Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure” (sounds like the Tribulation Period; Zeph. 1:15; Rev. 16:1-21).
Daymond’s interpretation: “In a short time (God’s time), you will experience the Tribulation period. He will speak to you with wrath in His voice. You have exposed Israel to terror so you will be terrorized” (see Obad. 1:15).
Verse 6: “Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.”
Daymond’s interpretation: “God has already determined that the King of His choice (Jesus) will sit on His (not the throne of your choice) Holy Mountain (the Temple Mount) in His (not your) city of Jerusalem.”
Verse 7: “I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.”
Daymond’s interpretation: “Jesus wants everyone to know what one of Jehovah’s decrees says: He (Jesus) is God’s Son and He was raised from the dead” (explained by Paul at Acts 13:29-37).
Verse 8: “Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.”
Daymond’s interpretation: “God told Jesus to ask and He will give the non-Jews and all the world to Him.” They are trying to destroy the Jews and possess the land God gave to Israel so Jesus needs only to ask and God will give them and the whole earth to Jesus.
Verse 9: “Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.”
Daymond’s interpretation: “When Jesus gets through with these people they will be less valuable than pieces of a broken vase.”
Verses 10-12: “Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth. Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Bless are all they that put their trust in him.”
Daymond’s interpretation: “God advised the non-Jewish political and religious leaders to wise up, serve Jesus and respect Him because just a little of His wrath is enough to destroy them and because those who trust Him will be blessed.”
Having said this, my friend August Rosado made a comment in his latest newsletter that blessed my heart (www.todayinbibleprophecy.org). He said, “It reminds me of the biblical story of Balaam ,who Balak the king of Moab hired to curse Israel. God warns Balaam not to curse Israel because they are a blessed people, (Numbers 22:12). Instead of Balaam cursing Israel, he blessed Israel. God turned the whole situation around. The point is Obama has cursed Israel, but God can turn the curse into a blessing. I believe this will happen with incoming Trump Administration, who promised to stand by Israel, and reverse all Obama has done.”
All Christians know that our trust must be in God not Donald Trump. But God can use Donald Trump to fulfill His Word.
For example, I am not predicting it, but it would not surprise me one bit to finally see a U.S. backlash against the UN (bills are already being drafted in congress by members of both parties), ISIS quickly defeated, the UN moving to Babylon, war and the Jews finally worshipping on the Temple Mount.
And because the UN political and religious leaders keep trying to destroy Israel they will be taken over by a political leader called the Antichrist and a religious leader called the False Prophet.
For the time being, it is being reported that U.S. Sec. of State John Kerry is drafting a Resolution to recognize a Palestinian State before Donald Trump is inaugurated. If this happens and God doesn’t lay it upon the heart of another nation to veto it, the dividing of the land of Israel and the scattering of Jews from some West Bank settlements will most likely be set in stone for activation at a future date.
Also, the servants of the Great Red Dragon at the UN may pass more resolutions, but no matter what they do the God of Israel is still God, Israel is still the apple of His eye, He still listens to the prayers of Christians and Jews, His Word is still true, and everyone would be wise to kiss the Son.
