Communion Meditation…

The King on Mount Zion

You will rule them with an iron scepter; you will dash them to pieces like pottery. – Psalm 2:9

This does not sound like the suffering servant who died for our sins. This sounds like a powerful king with whom none should dare to tamper.

Yet, this is a prophecy of the coming Christ. What is He? Suffering servant or powerful king?

Actually, He is both. In Revelation 5, John wept for no one could open the sealed scroll. The angel said to him,

See the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has triumphed. He is able to open the scroll and its seven seals.

When John turned to see the Lion, he “saw a Lamb, looking as if it had been slain, standing in the center of the throne” (Revelation 5:5 & 6).

Psalm 2 tells of how God has put His Son on the throne of heaven. Because of this, all of the rulers of earth (who have conspired against Him) should be wise and be warned.

So should I. I dare not try to play-act before Him. He does not suffer hypocrites or fools gladly!

I must “Serve the Lord with fear” (Psalm 2:11), for “His wrath can flare up in a moment.” Yet, “Blessed are all who take refuge in Him” (2:12).

What should my attitude be at this Table? I remember Him with joy; I serve Him with reverence and respect. I find peace in His promises while I respect His rebukes. His threats terrify the disobedient, even as His grace gladdens the faithful. Here, I celebrate His coming as I pray for His return.
