"Kiss the Son, lest He be angry and you be destroyed
in your way, for His wrath can flare up in a moment.
Blessed are all who take refuge in Him." Psalm 2:12

Kiss Christ with a kiss of obedience. This is to kiss Christ
—when we submit to Him, when we obey His laws, when
we are under His jurisdiction. There are many who give
Christ a complementary kiss. They seem devout—they
bow and cringe. O but they don't obey the Son! They kiss
Christ as their Savior—but they will not submit to Him as
their King. The truth is, they would have Christ and their
lusts together. They would embrace His promises—but
they will not obey His commands. O kiss the Son with
a kiss of subjection!

Those who will not have Christ's laws to rule them—shall
never have Christ's blood to save them! He who has no
part in the blood of the Lamb—will have a part in the wrath
of the Lamb, "They called to the mountains and the rocks
—Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on
the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb!"

Those who will not be ruled by Christ's royal scepter, His
scepter of grace—shall be broken by His rod of iron. "You
will break them with an iron rod and smash them like clay
pots!" Psalm 2:9. Those who oppose Christ, shall be as so
many ripe clusters of grapes to be cast into the great
winepress of God's wrath, to be trodden by the Son of
God until their blood flows out.

The Lord Jesus shoots His arrows very deep into the very
hearts of His enemies, "Your arrows are sharp, piercing
Your enemies' hearts." Psalm 45:5. The Persians dip their
arrows in poison—to kill more mortally. So Jesus Christ
shoots His arrows of poison; and because they cannot
endure the wrath of the Lamb all at once, they will be
enduring it to eternity. Here is terror to all those who
do not kiss the Son.

"Kiss the Son, lest He be angry and you be destroyed
in your way, for His wrath can flare up in a moment.
Blessed are all who take refuge in Him." Psalm 2:12
