Psalms 2:9

9 Thou shalt break [ra`a`] them with a rod [shebet] of iron; [barzel] thou shalt dash them in pieces [naphats] like a potter's [yatsar] vessel. [kaliy] KJV-Interlinear



9 'Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron, Thou shalt shatter them like earthenware.' NASB



The phrase, rod of iron, is an expression for a powerful scepter. A scepter is a symbol of authority and power. However, in this case, the scepter is that of the Messiah’s to whom authority and dominion over all of creation has been given.


The scepter symbolizes power, authority, dominion, and sovereignty over the realm of the ruler. In ancient times, kings and queens and so forth presumed total power over all subjects in their realm, including the right to decide life or death.


In some cases royals would decide based on evidence. In some cases royals would decide based on bias or prejudice. In the hands of humanity, authority is always subject to abuses.


Often times kings would go to war and expend tremendous resources in terms of both people and material, and wars would typically last for years if not decades.


The Messiah, on the other hand, possesses the power to dash His enemies into pieces, as easily as dropping a clay pot on a hard surface.


Clay pots break easily, and when they shatter, they shatter into many pieces and are rendered un-repairable and totally useless.


Such is the power and authority of Jesus Christ. His sovereignty is unmatched, unparalleled, and uncontestable.


God, the Trinity, decided in eternity past, that this one individual, the Son, would represent the Godhead in all capacities. This is for the purpose of separating out all who would presume a relationship with God, by means of their own attributes. And human attributes are laced through and through with sin, beginning with arrogance, and continuing along in the imagination of humanity.


Therefore, in eternity past, the second member of the Trinity was given a title, Son of God, given the office of absolute King, King of kings and Lord of lords, given possession of all of creation and more, His inheritance, and now we have the disclosure that He possesses absolute authority and power, to carry out His will, and the defeat of His enemies.
