Hostility toward Jehovah and Jesus was prophesied


  • It was prophesied that the nations would not accept Jesus’ authority but would insist on their own

  • This prophecy had fulfillment during Jesus’ time on earth and has a greater fulfillment today

  • The psalmist says that the nations mutter an empty thing, meaning that their purpose is empty and doomed to failure

Only those who honor Jehovah’s anointed King will gain life


  • All who oppose the Messianic King will be destroyed

  • By honoring the Son, Jesus, individuals can find safety and peace
