The Ascension of Our Lord

About 2500 to 3000 years ago,

the King of Judah has died,

all Judah is in Jerusalem for the coronation of the new king.

Several large choirs are assembled.

It begins:

Narrating Choir: Why do the nations conspire,
and the peoples plot in vain?
The kings of the earth set themselves,
and the rulers take counsel together,
against the LORD and his anointed, saying

Kings of the Earth: “Let us burst their bonds asunder,
and cast their cords from us."

Narrating Choir: He who sits in the heavens laughs;
the LORD has them in derision.
Then he will speak to them in his wrath,
and terrify them in his fury, saying

The Lord: I have set my king on Zion, my holy hill."

The New King: I will tell of the decree of the LORD: He said to me,

The Lord: You are my son, today I have begotten you.
Ask of me, and I will make the nations your heritage,
and the ends of the earth your possession.
You shall break them with a rod of iron,
and dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel."

Narrating Choir: Now therefore, O kings, be wise; be warned,
O rulers of the earth.
Serve the LORD with fear,
with trembling
kiss his feet, lest he be angry,
and you perish in the way;

for his wrath is quickly kindled
Blessed are all who take refuge in him.

The Second Psalm, is a psalm for the coronation of the new king. On the Feast of the Ascension we celebrate Jesus, a king of the line of Melchizedek and David the King of Judah and of all Glory retuning to Heaven, as Choirs of Angels sing, to sit at the right hand of the Father.

The nations and peoples still plot and conspire in vain, but God laughs at them, He has put his only Son on the Throne and

Blessed are all who Take Refuge in him.
