28 For the
kingdom [maluwkah] is the LORD'S: [Yahovah]
and he is the governor [mashal] among the
nations. [gowy] KJV-Interlinear
28 For the
kingdom is the Lord's, And He rules over the nations. NASB
For even though Jesus was hanging on the cross at that time, these words stood from eternity past, to the time of Davids writing, to the time of the actual event of the cross.
The very one who was being punished, who was being mocked, who was being treated as though he were scum, was in fact the ruler of all that is.
God rules the nations. Jesus Christ controls history. Jesus Christ is God and the sovereign ruler over all that exists and beyond.
As God, He is not confined by time or space. He transcends all that is and probably beyond even that. Something that we will likely never be able to comprehend.
Throughout history, God has overridden all others. Satan has tried to establish his own kingdom on many occasions, but all human empires have failed. All angelic kingdoms, if there were any, have failed as well.
God will establish a Kingdom on this earth while man still has some semblance of history, but eventually even that will receive a rebellion of sorts as man will still reject Christ, even when He is on His throne here on the earth. That will be the Millennium.
And herein is stated that God has the inherent right and the right from eternity past, to rule all nations.
This right has existed since eternity past, when God was the only person in existence. He created all life, and all that is, including the universe as we have it now, and He has handed rulership down to man, who lost it to Satan, who has literally destroyed any semblance of rightful authority.
And Christ will one day, take back what all others have ruined, and will set it again in truth, righteousness and justice.
