The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool. The Lord shall send the rod of thy strength out of Zion: rule thou in the midst of thine enemies. Thy people shall be willing in the day of thy power, in the beauties of holiness from the womb of the morning: thou hast the dew of thy youth. The Lord hath sworn, and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek. The Lord at thy right hand shall strike through kings in the day of his wrath. He shall judge among the heathen, he shall fill the places with the dead bodies; he shall wound the heads over many countries. He shall drink of the brook in the way: therefore shall he lift up the head. ( Psalm 110)
The Messiah is the Lord. He is a King and a Priest at the same time. He has triumphed over all of his enemies and has been exalted by the LORD to sit at His right hand, awaiting the “day of his wrath”. On that day the LORD will make his enemies His footstool.
In that day Messiah will make war on all that is false, and perverse, evil and morally and Spiritually deformed. He will judge amongst all nations(the heathen), but in particular He will confront the “Kings of the Earth and their ruers”.
And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming (2 Thessalonians 2:8)
These Kings, of which the Psalm proclaims that Messiah will literally “strike through” them, are not merely political leaders. The Phrase “The Kings” or “The Kings of the earth and their rulers” recurs throughout the Psalms and even into the New Testament.
The term refers to the class which we currently know as ‘the ruling elite’. It includes Royalty, and leaders of nations, Presidents, Prime Ministers and Parliamentarians, but is not limited to them.
The Kings of the earth are actually the entire class of culture shapers, leaders in Education, Media, Banking, Technology, Commerce, Medicine , Law and Religion. The second Psalm tells us that these Kings have taken counsel directly against “the LORD and His Messiah”. They have launched a world-wide liberation movement to set the peoples free of the cords and Bands of God and Christ, promoting it through all of their various spheres of influence.
Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.(Psalm 2:1-3)
In our day it seems every one of our public institutions have been given over to the propagation of AntiChrist philosophies such as Humanism, Multi-Culturalism, Sexual anarchy, Atheism and other Leftist causes. Schools almost universally promote these things, as does the media, Governments, and even medicine and law are put to the service of these death loving philosophies.
For example, from a public health standpoint, Homosexuality is known to be deadly, and life shortening. Transgenderism is an advanced form of insanity! But the medical profession advances it, the law defends it, and orphaned children are routinely adopted into homosexual homes. Homosexuals are allowed in schools to teach sex eduction to pre-teen children! In any other time, this would be considered the mark of utter depravity and the end of society. But our elites celebrate this as progressive.
Messiah is coming to strike through the Kings of the earth, for their opposition to God and for the way they led whole communities into Hell. The Blind leading the blind!
The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved: he uttered his voice, the earth melted.The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah. Come, behold the works of the Lord, what desolations he hath made in the earth.(Psalm 46:6-8)
For, lo, the kings were assembled, they passed by together. They saw it, and so they marvelled; they were troubled, and hasted away. Fear took hold upon them there, and pain, as of a woman in travail.(Psalm 48:4-6)
In the book of Revelation, we see the final return of our LORD and Savior, Jesus Messiah, coming to judge the earth in Righteousness. We also see the spectacle of the armies of the Earth united to resist him, and out of the had owns step forth to confront the Redeemer, none less than the Kings of the earth,
And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army. And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone. And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh. (Revelation 19:19-21)
This is the vision which describes the way that the Lord Messiah, shall strike through the Kings of the earth.
