Wesley's Notes for Psalms 2:7


2:7 The decree - The will and appointment of God concerning this. My sin - Which tho' it may in some sort be said to, or of David, yet much more properly belongs to Christ, who is commonly known by this title both in the Old and New Testament, and to whom this title is expressly appropriated by the holy ghost, who is the best interpreter of his own words, #Acts 13:33 Heb 1:5|. This day - This may be understood either, Of his eternal generation. This day, from all eternity, which is well described by this day, because in eternity there is no succession, no [yesterday,] no [tomorrow,] but it is all as one continued day or moment without change or flux; or, Of the manifestation of Christ's eternal son - ship in time; which was done both in his birth and life, when his being the son of God was demonstrated by the testimony of the angel, #Luke 1:32|, and of God the Father, #Matt 3:17 17:5|, and by his own words and works; and in his resurrection, which seems to be here mainly intended, of which day this very place is expounded, #Acts 13:33|. When Christ was in a most solemn manner declared to be the son of God with power, #Rom 1:4|.

    Mild Bill; Amen Brother. And what is it that they so furiously rage against, and have their vain imagination? "..Against the LORD, and against His Anointed - Christ." It filled up in their slanders and accusations and lies; its filled up in their movies and music; its filled up in every thought of their hearts and expression: "NO GOD!" and "NO ONE TELLING ME ANYTHING!" O COME LORD JESUS! ITS TIME!

    i would say that let the verses one to five are talking about the battle of armageddon :) and of course in a lesser sense people or persons or countries or organizations who think they can persecute christians without eventual consequences

    God is Good all the time. And all the time God is Good. Think, if we all followed God and what he needs us to do, there would be no Evil to worry about. Our children would be safe. Death would be years away. Oh what a Glorious day That will be.
  • L.Holder
    God is great . He lay down his rules for us to follow . All we need to do is be faithful and love each other . God is not mock and he is looking out for us . Take heed and let God leads you
  • Enny Onakoya
    Psalm 2 is a great encouragement passage that really portray God as a God who is sovereign and always on top of any adverse circumstances, regardless of those that are conspiring against Him or those He endorsed their candidacy.
    Though the enemies may use their position to influence things but their plans will always fail, and fall apart like pack of cards!
  • Matt S
    We see the heathen rage specifically in these moments in time as they take to the streets protesting the rights of some as the unborn are continually slaughtered under the same morality as those who march . They hide behind self righteousness and know not GOD. But God is not mocked...Galations 6:7
