Psalm 22:28a "The kingdom is the LORD's"

Day 176 – Psalm 22

“The kingdom is the LORD’s” Psalm 22:28a


The prophetic vision found in Psalm 22 is positively amazing, especially with reference to the worship of the Messiah. It began with personal worship. It would end with a vision of a world in worship of the Lord.

“All the ends of the world shall remember and turn to the LORD,
And all the families of the nations shall worship before You.
For the kingdom is the LORD’s and He rules over nations.
All the prosperous of the earth shall eat and worship;
All those who go down to the dust shall bow before Him,
Even he who cannot keep himself alive.”
Psalm 22:27-29
