Bible Readings: Psalms 2

For these past few weeks we set the Passover as our priority, as we always do. Meaning that we chose to be offline for a while. But don’t worry we didn’t forget about you! We also use that time to determine what should be done for the website and be productive in the mean time. One of our greatest priorities is the podcasts which affects the radio station. BTW it has been updated a few days ago with two chapters of Psalms. Thank you to the sisters and brothers that reached out and let us know that they wanted to hear new podcasts.

Today we want to begin with an amazing chapter that predicts the coming of Christ. Psalms 2:7 “I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.” We are taught by Christ to search the scriptures because they speak of him. See, John 5:39. At the time he said that, only the so called Old Testament existed. Here is evidence that we are commanded by a decree declared by the Heavenly Father to believe in Christ. Matthew 3:16 “And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him:” Verse 17: “And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.”

A wonderful fact that we could learn from this chapter is the meaning of the word Christ. Many theorize the meaning of Christ and go to questionable sources to discourage the use of this word. The second verse speaks of the rulers of this earth having rage against the most High’s anointed. This exact same scripture is quoted in Acts 4:25 “Who by the mouth of thy servant David hast said, Why did the heathen rage, and the people imagine vain things?” Verse 26: “The kings of the earth stood up, and the rulers were gathered together against the Lord [YHWH], and against his Christ [anointed].” The Hebrew word for anointed is translated to Messiah in English. How come then is the word anointed translated in Acts to Christ? John 1:41 “He first findeth his own brother Simon, and saith unto him, We have found the Messias, which is, being interpreted, the Christ.” The explanation is simple, Christ is a Greek translation for the word anointed.
