In Mark 12, Jesus explained the verses in Psalm 110, of how David was calling Jesus Lord. It is clear that there are two Lord’s spoken here in Psalm 110 and Jesus helped them understand the meaning of these verses. 4“And Jesus answered and said, while he taught in the temple, How say the scribes that Christ is the son of David? For David himself said by the Holy Ghost, The Lord said to my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool. David therefore himself calleth him Lord; and whence is he then his son? And the common people heard him gladly.” (Mark 12:35-37) You see, the scribes taught that Christ was the son of David, but really David revered the coming Messiah as Lord instead. He knew that their was the Father, who is the Lord God Almighty, and the Son of Man, Jesus Christ, who is also the Lord God. The Jewish people may not have saw it this way before, but in reality, the “Son of Man” was spoken of in the Old Testament as the Lord God, of which Jesus said He is the “Son of Man”. In Daniel 7, it reads, 2“I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him. And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.” (Daniel 7:13-15)
Daniel speaks of the “Son of Man”, as we just read above, who we know as Jesus. He also speaks of the “Ancient of Days”, who we know is the Father. Jesus also said, 3“whether is it easier to say to the sick of the palsy, thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Arise, and take up thy bed, and walk? But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, (he saith to the sick of the palsy,) I say unto thee, Arise, and take up thy bed, and go thy way into thine house. And immediately he arose, took up the bed, and went forth before them all; insomuch that they were all amazed, and glorified God, saying, We never saw it on this fashion.” (Mark 2:9-12) 3“And he said unto them, The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath: Therefore the Son of man is Lord also of the sabbath.” (Mark 2:27,28) Therefore, Jesus called himself the “Son of Man” and Lord. Lastly, Psalm 110 reads, 1Psalm”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.” (Psalm 110:1,2) Now, these verses make more sense, since we know that Jesus is David’s Lord spoken here. We know this to be true since Jesus confirmed this fact. So if the Father and the Son are both Lord, then they both work as two persons with the Holy Spirit in the trinity. This is true since there is one God in three persons, where the Holy Spirit is the comforter for all believers in Christ.
Let us pray:
Oh Lord, I believe in You. You are the Son of Man and Lord God of all. It was prophesied of Your coming hundreds of years before it happened, and I am amazed how accurate your prophecies have been. Surely, Your mind is on an entirely different level than ours. Your wisdom is overwhelming and awesome in every way. It is truly amazing how You orchestrate different events on earth, in order for them to line up perfectly for Your prophecies to be fulfilled. The wind and rain are controlled by You and Your angels perfectly. Even the flowers that bloom in the spring are awe-inspiring. Everything is made so perfectly by Your hand. Nothing is like You. You are supreme in every fashion of the word. Lord, I am not worthy even to step in Your presence, but You have lifted me up and allowed Yourself to dwell in me. I have done so many bad things, but still, You have come and washed me clean while forgiving a wretch like me. I know that I cannot work my way to heaven, but simply put my trust in You and follow You. My own deeds that I perform are not important unless You are leading me in my actions. Surely, I can get caught up in doing tedious things and not even realize that You are not existent in them. I may have thought I was right in doing them, but there was no wisdom from You in doing them at all. Therefore, I ask that You will help me to never get myself in this same kind of traps again. Surely, the enemy wants me to believe that I am doing good when really You are far from me. So, Lord, I pray that You will take me by the hand daily and fill me up with Your wisdom. I only desire to follow You now and be used by You in Your kingdom. Your relationship is what I need to find true happiness, love, and joy in my life. You are my rock and my firm foundation. I love You, Jesus. I give You praise, my Lord and God of all creation. Amen.
