Holy Week Day 3: The Mystery the Messiah

The LORD said to my Lord, "Sit at My right hand, till I make Your enemies Your footstool."

Psalm 110:1

From Genesis to Revelation the Bible is about the revelation of Jesus. Sometimes the revelation is hidden--we call those things a mystery. A mystery is something that is hidden in the Old Testament but revealed in the New Testament. Today's meditation passage is all about Jesus--and the mystery is clearly revealed in the New Testament.

Psalm 110 is the most quoted psalm in the New Testament. Jesus used this Psalm to challenge the religious leaders to see who He was. After performing the miracles in the temple and receiving the praise of the children, Jesus ask the religious leaders, "What do you think of the Christ? Whose Son is He?" (Matthew 22:42) They answered that He was the Son of David. This was the correct answer. But Jesus used the passage above to question them about the mystery of His identity. "If David then calls Him "Lord" how is He his Son?"

Jesus is always pointing to Himself! He is the Great "I AM"! He is the King of Kings! (Revelation 19:16) He is the Lion of the Tribe of Judah! (Revelation 5:5) He is the Messiah who sits at the right hand of the Father! (Psalm 110:1) He was longing for His people to see who He was then, and He is still longing for His people to see who He is now.

The sad thing is that Israel will reject their King. In a few days they will stand before Pontius Pilate and say, "We have no King but Caesar!" (John 19:15). They will shout for Him to be crucified. They will turn their hearts away from He who came to love and to save them. Jesus knows all this. He told His disciples that it was going to happen. (Matthew 262). But even knowing all this He still heals, He still teaches, He still loves them anyway.

Let us reflect with David that Jesus is the King of Kings who is even now seated at the right hand of the Father. (Colossians 3:1-3) Having reflected we can seek His ways, His purpose and His plans for us--for that is the true worship of One who has met the Messiah and the King of Kings.

Blessings to you!
