Psalm 2

Royal (earthly king)

God Laughs at the Machinations of Men

                4 He who sits in the heavens laughs,

                The Lord scoffs at them.

·         If sin had its way, it would annihilate God’s government. It seeks to dethrone him. This is true of all sin.

·         “[God] is Lord over those that hate him. . . . They are his unwilling servants even when they rage most against him.” (Newton)

·         The death of the Savior was the signal for the fall of Satan’s kingdom.

·         There is a consanguinity between all the graces of the Christian.
