Since the fall of man in the Garden of Eden, man has been at war with God. This Psalm so powerfully illustrates this fact. The Psalm begins with the kings of the earth boasting that they do not need or want God to rule over them They set themselves in array against God and His Anointed. The Hebrew word translated “Anointed” in this Psalm is Messiah. The Greek word for the “Anointed One” is Christ. How much better would it be if mankind would simply surrender to the authority of God and His Christ.
