Surrounded by more powerful nations, David places his hope in a higher power. He looks forward to the coming of his promised Son, who will execute justice for the oppressed and offer a way of access to the Great Power of the Universe. This Great Power sends David two messages, showing him the way.
A sermon on Psalm 110 by Pastor Tim LeCroy
Sermon Text: Psalm 110
A Psalm of David. The LORD says to my Lord: “Sit at my right hand, until I make your enemies your footstool.” 2 The LORD sends forth from Zion your mighty scepter. Rule in the midst of your enemies! 3 Your people will offer themselves freely on the day of your power, in holy garments; from the womb of the morning, the dew of your youth will be yours. 4 The LORD has sworn and will not change his mind, “You are a priest forever after the order of Melchizedek.” 5 The Lord is at your right hand; he will shatter kings on the day of his wrath. 6 He will execute judgment among the nations, filling them with corpses; he will shatter chiefs over the wide earth. 7 He will drink from the brook by the way; therefore he will lift up his head.
