09 Sep Psalm 110: Christ the King, Priest and Warrior
The Lord says to my Lord: “Sit at my right hand, until I make your enemies your footstool.”
2 The Lord sends forth from Zion your mighty scepter. Rule in the midst of your enemies! 3 Your people will offer themselves freely on the day of your power, in holy garments; from the womb of the morning, the dew of your youth will be yours.
4 The Lord has sworn and will not change his mind, “You are a priest forever after the order of Melchizedek.”
5 The Lord is at your right hand; he will shatter kings on the day of his wrath. 6 He will execute judgment among the nations, filling them with corpses; he will shatter chiefs over the wide earth. 7 He will drink from the brook by the way; therefore he will lift up his head.
Have you ever feel so convinced about something, so convinced that you get it right, it is impossible for you to get it wrong, yet you are very wrong? It happens to me a lot. Especially regarding people’s names. I can tell you countless story where I get people’s name wrong. It mostly happen on Sunday night for some reason. Let me tell you one story. One Sunday last year, after RYI service, we went out to eat at Shalom. I think there are about 20 of us. And during dinner, Edrick walked up to me with a man next to him. Edrick asked, “Yos, do you remember him?” I looked at the guy and I remembered his face. He used to come to church every now and then when we were still at UTS. And I replied, “Of course I remember.” So I stood up, shake his hand and said, “Erick right?” Actually, I don’t remember what I called him that night. He looked at me, blinked few times, and said, “No, I am Matt” or some other names that I also can’t remember. Now you need to know something about me. When I said that his name was Erick, I did not make it up. It’s not as if I just blurted out the first random name that popped in my head and hope I got it right. No. Well, sometimes I did. But most of the time I did not. At that time, I was truly convinced that his name was Erick. Like when I called one of you “Rachel” while your name is something else that also starts with R, I did not randomly call her Rachel. I was convinced at that time that his name was Erick and her name was Rachel. But I was so wrong.
The reason I am telling you this story is because I believe that there are many of us who miss out on who Jesus truly is. Maybe we have heard of him before in the church, maybe we read his stories from the Bible and maybe we even pray to him. Without any doubt, all of us has experience the gifts that he has given us – oxygen that we breathe, the warm stroke of summer, the cool breeze of spring, the beautiful sunset at the top of the mountain, the roaring waves of the ocean, the combination of spices that creates delicious flavour in our mouth, the eruption of joy when she said yes – all of these are part of beautiful gifts that he has given us. But many of us miss out on who he truly is. And the reason we miss out on who Jesus is, is because we already have our own preconception on who Jesus should be. So rather than letting him tells us who he is, we try to tell him who he should be. And this does not work. Let me give you an example.
Single girls, let say that one day you meet a man and falls in love with him at first sight. By the way, I do not recommend falling in love at first sight. Another talk for another time. But let’s say you fall in love and you want to get to know him. And for some magical chemistry reason, the guy notices you, walks up to you and starts to converse with you. As you talk, the guy begins to tell you about himself. He tells you that his name is Henry and he is half Chinese and half Indonesian. He loves to cook and his hobby is karaoke. To which you reply, “Well Henry, I find you attractive and I really want to get to know you. But I have some problem. First of all, I don’t like your name Henry. I always want a boyfriend with a name Bob. So let’s change your name from Henry to Bob from now on. I also don’t like the fact that you are Chinese Indo. I always want to be more adventurous in dating a guy. I want to date Latinos. So from now on, you will be Latinos. I don’t have problem with your love of cooking but I do have issue with your hobby. If you love karaoke, you will become very melancholic and emotional. I don’t like that. I want a manly man who has six packs. So from now on you need to change your hobby from karaoke to gym.” How do you think Henry will respond? If Henry is normal and not desperate, he will walk away from the conversation. He will not say, “If that’s what you want, I’ll be Bob for you.” No, that is not a real life; that’s Korean drama. When we get to know a person, doesn’t matter who he or she is, we don’t get to choose who we want them to be. We have to accept them for who they said they are.
This is what happen between Jesus and the religious leaders of his days. The religious leaders spend all of their life studying the Scriptures and waiting for the coming Messiah but when the Messiah was in front of them, they did not recognize him. Because they already had their own preconception on who the Messiah should be. In Matthew chapter 22, Matthew tells us a story of how the religious leaders try to trap Jesus into saying something that they can use against him. By this time, Jesus already made name for himself all across Israel. He is the uprising star and the religious authorities did not like it and tried to crush Jesus. So they decided to ask him hard questions in a public space and they hoped Jesus would say something stupid. It is similar to how politic works today. So here we find Jesus being asked all sorts of questions. Someone asked him, “Should we pay taxes to Caesar?” This is a political question. Then another asked him a theological question, “How can you believe in resurrection of the dead?” And every time, without fail, Jesus hit a home run. He not only answered them rightly, he answered them in such a way that they could not argue with him. Jesus left them speechless. But Jesus did not stop there. After he answered all of their question, Jesus now switched the role and asked them a question. And with this one question, no one dares to question Jesus anymore. Do you want to know the question he asked? It’s beautiful.
Matthew 22:41-46 – 41 Now while the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them a question, 42 saying, “What do you think about the Christ? Whose son is he?” They said to him, “The son of David.” 43 He said to them, “How is it then that David, in the Spirit, calls him Lord, saying, 44 “‘The Lord said to my Lord, “Sit at my right hand, until I put your enemies under your feet”’? 45 If then David calls him Lord, how is he his son?” 46 And no one was able to answer him a word, nor from that day did anyone dare to ask him any more questions.
Now, do you see what’s happening? Jesus is quoting Psalm 110. Jesus uses Psalm 110 to silence all his critics. This tells us something about the weight of Psalm 110. In fact, Psalm 110 is the most quoted Old Testament Scripture in the New Testament. Jesus quotes it, Peter quotes it, and almost the entire argument of the book of Hebrews is based on Psalm 110. Psalm 110 is perhaps the most important passage of the Old Testament in the history of early Christianity. What makes Psalm 110 so special? Psalm 110 is unique because the entire Psalm speaks of the coming Messiah. Now we need to understand that the Old Testament is filled with prophecies of the coming descendant of David that would deliver Israel out of bondage. This figure is called the Messiah, the Son of David, the Christ. Christ is not Jesus’ last name. It is a Greek word for Messiah. This is the man they are all waiting for. And Psalm 110 speaks entirely of this Christ figure. This psalm is written by King David. But who is David talking about?
Psalm 110 begins in a strange way. Psalm 110:1 – The Lord says to my Lord: “Sit at my right hand, until I make your enemies your footstool.” Now, this is strange. And this is the point Jesus makes. So, we have two persons in a conversation. The LORD (YHWH) and my Lord (Adonai). We know that the LORD is referring to YHWH but who is “my Lord”? And if this “my Lord” is David’s son, why does David calls him Lord? If he is just David’s descendant, David would not call him Lord. David would call him “my son.” The right way of writing it would be, “The LORD says to my son.” But no. David calls him “my Lord.” Who is this man? And not only that, but then we have the LORD, the God of the universe, tells this man to sit at his right hand. In those days, to sit at the right hand of a king means that he shares the power and authority of the king. Who is this man that the God of the universe exalts so highly that David himself calls “my Lord”?
This is the point that Jesus is making. The Christ that the Jews are waiting for, he is not just an ordinary son of David. He is not just a mere human. He is someone whom David calls “my Lord” and someone whom God exalts to the highest position. The Jews are waiting for a human being, a political figure to come to rescue them from the reigns of Rome. But Jesus shows them that the Christ they are waiting for are not a mere human. He is someone who is in the same level as God the Father and yet not the same as God the Father. What Jesus is saying is that, “I am David’s Lord. David is speaking of me. I am the son of God. I am the Christ.” Psalm 110 is all about Jesus the Christ.
Three things that Psalm 110 tells us about Christ. Christ the King; Christ the Priest; Christ the Warrior.
Christ the King
Psalm 110:1-3 – The Lord says to my Lord: “Sit at my right hand, until I make your enemies your footstool.” 2 The Lord sends forth from Zion your mighty sceptre. Rule in the midst of your enemies! 3 Your people will offer themselves freely on the day of your power, in holy garments; from the womb of the morning, the dew of your youth will be yours.
We need to understand something about Jesus. Right now, Jesus is no longer in the manger. It is good that we celebrate Christmas where Jesus humbled himself and was born as a human baby in the manger. But that is not where Jesus is today. It is good that we celebrate Passover where Jesus died at the cross for our sins. If he did not do that, we would not be here today. But that is not where Jesus is today. We need to understand that today Jesus is sitting at the right hand of God. He is the sovereign King of the universe. He is co-ruling with God the Father. He has absolute control over everything in the universe and over our lives. God the Father has appointed him king. We do not get to vote whether we want Jesus on the throne or not. He is on the throne whether we like it or not. God has chosen him to reign. We only have two options: whether we submit our lives to his kingship or we rebel against him. But know this. All the enemies of Christ will become his footstool. God will make all the enemies of Christ his footstool.
So, I want you to imagine this picture. Imagine you live in the era of kingdoms of the Old Testament. You are invited to come to the throne room of your king. You know that whoever sit at the right hand of the king has a special status. The right hand of a king has the highest rank and authority in the kingdom. So, you walk in to the throne room, and you see a man sitting at the right hand of the king. And then you witness an amazing scene in front of your eyes. One by one, the enemies of the kingdom is brought in to the chamber. There are lots of them in line. And then one by one, the enemy is push to the ground, and the man sitting at the right hand of the king would put his foot on the throat of the enemy. What does it mean? It is an old custom to show that the enemy has been defeated. And you look at the long line of enemies that have been defeated. Each of them has name. Sin, addiction, pornography, lust, greed, pride, power, sickness, disaster, demon, and then you look toward the end of the line, you see the name, death. These are all the enemies that have been defeated. They are just waiting for their turn to be put as a footstool at the feet of the right hand of the king. Every single enemies have been defeated and a time will come where all his enemies will become Christ’s footstool. That is why Christ rules in the midst of his enemies. There will not be a single enemy that will not become his footstool.
Psalm 110:3 – 3 Your people will offer themselves freely on the day of your power, in holy garments; from the womb of the morning, the dew of your youth will be yours. This is a beautiful picture. It is the opposite of the previous verse. All the enemies of Christ will be conquered by force but the people of Christ offer themselves freely. Christ’s army does not consist of those who are drafted into the army outside of their own will. The army of Christ consists of those who willingly give their lives for the sake of Christ. They are captivated by the beauty and the majesty of Christ and give themselves willingly. They love Christ’s reign. The reign of Christ is their hope and joy.
Here is something that you need to understand about Jesus. Jesus is not your “dude.” He is the Sovereign King of the universe. You cannot control him and you cannot put him in the box. He does not exist for you but you exist for him. Our only choice is either we submit our lives to his reign willingly or we rebel against him and become his enemies. Get this. You do not get to negotiate terms and conditions with Christ. Either you submit to him or you rebel against him. You don’t get to say, “Jesus I’ll trust you only if you make happy, rich, successful, famous, healthy….” You are not the king; Christ is. This is the problem with the religious leaders of Jesus’ days. They tried to put Christ in a box. They are expecting a political leader who will set them free from the Romans. They are not expecting God to come to them as a human to set them free from their sins. What Jesus is essentially saying to them is, “I am David’s Lord. I am the Messiah. I am God. You can’t put in me your box. I am not the Christ you want but I am the Christ you need. And I am a Sovereign King. I do not exist to serve your agenda. If you want me to save you then you have to surrender to me. You have to give up your right to live however you want and live the way I want you to live.” Do you see what happen? We don’t get to choose what sort of Jesus we want. And this is what our culture is doing. They are more than happy to accept Jesus as a good man, as a moral teacher, as one of religious leader. But Jesus would have none of it. You either confess that he is God and Lord over your life or you are his enemies.
Christ the Priest
Psalm 110:4 – 4 The Lord has sworn and will not change his mind, “You are a priest forever after the order of Melchizedek.”
Now, this is strange. Psalm 110 tells us that Christ will not only be a King, but he will also be a Priest. This is strange because the role of king and priest don’t go together. In fact, the Law of Moses prohibits the two to be joined together. It is illegal for anyone to perform priestly duty and offer sacrifices except for the Levites. One time, King Uzziah tried to break this rule. He walked into the temple and wanted to burn incense to the LORD. The priest tried to stop him but he would not listen. Do you know what happen to King Uzziah? At that very moment, the LORD strucked him with leprosy. The Law of Moses prohibits the role of the king and priest to be joined together.
Not only that, but the function of kings and priests are also very different. Just think about it. What does a king do? A king is to rule the people. His role is to exercise justice. A king is a figure of strength and power. A king enforces the law. With another word, a king represents God to the people. But the function of a priest is totally the opposite. Priests offer sacrifices on behalf of the people and pray for the people. Priest take cares of the poor and the needy. They exercises mercy. A priest represents the people to God. The function of kings and priests are opposite of one another. That is why you do not have a king who is a priest or a priest who is a king. But Psalm 110 tells us that Christ is both King and Priest. Christ is a priest forever after the order of Melchizedek.
Some of you are like, “Melki who?” Melchizedek is one peculiar character. He first appears in Genesis 14. Abraham returned from saving his nephew Lot and on his way back, he ran into Melchizedek. And it is really interesting because when the Old Testament introduces a character, it usually tells you their ancestry, the time in which they lived and when they died. But when Melchizedek shows up on the scene, it doesn’t tell us anything. There are just few verses on him, and then he disappears. His name shows up again a thousand years later in Psalm 110. However, Melchizedek’s name and city is hinting out to us his role in the story. Melchizedek means King of righteousness, and he is king of Salem, which means peace. King of righteousness from the city of peace. So, we have this priestly king by the name of Melchizedek who appears out of nowhere in Genesis to bless Abraham, and then, poof, he disappears. Melchizedek is unique because he is a king but he is a priest at the same time. The point that Psalm 110 makes is that Christ’s priesthood is not based on the order of Levitical priesthood but the order of Melchizedek. Just like how Melchizedek is both king and priest, Christ is both king and priest. And not only that. Whereas Israel’s high priest keeps changing, Melchizedek priesthood has no beginning and no end just as we do not know the beginning and the end of Melchizedek’s life. It is an eternal priesthood. In fact, the language is very strong. David says that the LORD has sworn and will not change his mind. With another word, we can be confident that Christ will forever be the Priest of his people. There will not be a day where he ceased to be a Priest or that another better priest is needed. Christ is the ultimate Priest.
In Jesus, both the function of a King and a Priest dances together in a perfect harmony. In Jesus you find both absolute justice and infinite mercy. He is the lion and the lamb. He is the judge but he is also the one who offers sacrifice for forgiveness of sins. Jesus is not one or the other. He is both King and Priest. That is why again and again you find Jesus exercises his kingship by going hard after the Pharisees. This is the man who is not afraid to call the religious leaders of his days, “brood of vipers.” This is the man who goes in to the temple, takes out a whip, and begin to throw out the money changers from the temple. Jesus is bold. But the same Jesus also has compassion for those who are needy. This is the man that shed tears in front of Lazarus’ tomb. This is the man who is not afraid to touch a leper. This is the man who will not let the crowd leaves hungry. This is the man who says to a little dead girl, “Talitha koumi,” which means “Little girl, it’s time to wake up.” In Jesus, you find both absolute justice and infinite mercy. He is a King and a Priest.
You will never see the beauty of Jesus until you see that Jesus is both a King and a Priest. It is only when you see Jesus as both a Sovereign King and an Ultimate Priest that you are drawn by his beauty. There is one story in the Old Testament that captures the importance of both Christ’s kingship and priesthood. The story is from Exodus 33 and 34. So one day, Moses said to God, “God I want to see your glory. Show me your glory.” Then God replied, “No one can look at my face and live. But I will show you my glory. I will make all my goodness pass before you.” With another word, the glory of God will be seen in his goodness. So then in chapter 34, God put Moses in a cleft of the rock, then God came down in a cloud, covered Moses with his hands, and God proclaimed his name. What does it mean? It means that God’s goodness will be known through his name. And this is what God said about himself. It’s beautiful.
Exodus 34:6-7 – 6 The Lord passed before him and proclaimed, “The Lord, the Lord, a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness, 7 keeping steadfast love for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, but who will by no means clear the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children and the children’s children, to the third and the fourth generation.”
Do you realize what God says about himself? First, he says that he is a forgiving God. He is a gracious God. He is merciful. He is a priest. But then he quickly turn and say, “But I will not let any sin go unpunished. Everyone will have to pay for his crime. Justice must be served.” This is the role of a king. Do you see a problem? God is saying that he is a forgiving God who will not let a single sin unpunished. He is both merciful and just. And this is where we see God’s goodness. God says “I am so good that I have to punish every sins.” In order for God to be good, he has to punish wrongdoing. If God sees a wrongdoing and he does not punish it, he is not good. A judge who declared a guilty person to be innocent is a corrupt judge. Every sin must be punished. But God also says, “I am so good that I forgive sins.” Can you see the contradiction? Keller says that you will never see the beauty of Christ until you see the contradiction.
Logically speaking, ultimate justice and infinite mercy don’t go together. Ultimate justice requires payment for every wrong doing. Infinite mercy says every sin can be forgiven. How does the two goes together? Is it possible to have both ultimate justice and infinite mercy? Is it possible to have a God that is all good? Psalm 110 tells us that it is possible. Because Christ is not only a King but he is also a Priest. In the person and work of Jesus, you see all the goodness of God. What happen to Jesus? In Jesus, the sinless Christ is crucified to pay for all of our sins. At the cross, God punishes all of our sins in Jesus. God exercises his justice by not letting any sin go unpunished. But at the same time, for those who believe in Jesus, all your sins are forgiven. Because Jesus took all your sins upon himself and paid for it. That’s why God can look at you and says, “forgiven.” At the cross of Jesus Christ, the absolute justice and the infinite mercy of God meet and shine bright. Jesus is both our King and Priest. Can you see his beauty?
Having Christ as our King and Priest should also give us comfort in facing our daily struggles. Because he is our King, there is nothing that can happen to us outside of his permission. Because he is our Priest, he is constantly praying for us so that we will not fail. Let me give you an example. At the night before crucifixion, Jesus told all his disciples that all of them will forsake him tomorrow. Then Peter said, “Even if they all forsake you, I will never ever forsake you. I will die with you.” And Jesus probably smile and said, “I like your spirit Peter but, no. In fact before the morning comes, you will deny me three times.” And that’s exactly what happened. Peter denied Jesus three times. But there is something that Jesus said before it that I think is absolutely stunning. Luke 22:31-32 – 31 “Simon, Simon, behold, Satan demanded to have you, that he might sift you like wheat, 32 but I have prayed for you that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned again, strengthen your brothers.” Jesus is saying, “Peter, you are going to deny me three times. And you are going to be very miserable because of it. Satan has demanded to have you. They wanted you to never recover and forsake your faith in me. But here is what you need to know Peter. I have prayed for you. And your faith will not fail. And when you have turned again, strengthen your brothers.” Notice Jesus did not say if you return again but when you have turned again. You can see both the authority of Jesus and the mercy of Jesus. Satan has to ask Jesus’ permission to attack Peter. Jesus is King. But he is also Priest. Jesus is performing his priestly duty by praying for Peter. When Jesus prayed for Peter, Jesus will not fail. And the same Jesus is performing his priestly duty for you and me. It does not matter what we are going through, we can have comfort in knowing that Jesus has absolute control and is forever praying for us. He will not fail.
Christ the Warrior
Psalm 110:5-7 – 5 The Lord is at your right hand; he will shatter kings on the day of his wrath. 6 He will execute judgment among the nations, filling them with corpses; he will shatter chiefs over the wide earth. 7 He will drink from the brook by the way; therefore he will lift up his head.
Christ is not only a King and a Priest, but he is also a Warrior for his people. A lot of time when we think of the kingdom of God, we often depict it as a kingdom under attack from the kingdom of the world. So the kingdom of God is on the defence. But that is not the picture of the kingdom of God that we see in the Bible. It is the total opposite. The kingdom of God is not on the defence but on the offence. Remember that Jesus said that the gates of hell will not prevail. So the one on the attack is not the army of hell but the army of God. Christ and his army is on the march and even the gates of hell cannot hold them back. And this is the picture that Psalm 110 gives us. Christ is the Warrior who fights for his people. He is on the march and he will not stop until all his enemies are destroyed.
In verse 7, David possibly uses his own experiences to describe what Christ will do. In 1 Samuel 30, the Amalekites took the wives and all the belongings of David and his army. So David went and pursued the Amalekites. David had 600 men with him but 200 men stayed behind at the brook of Besor because they were exhausted. But David knelt down, drank and took the other 400 men to pursue the Amalekites. And they eventually overtook the Amalekites, destroyed them, and took all their belongings and wives back. This is the picture that verse 7 gives us. Christ the Warrior will not stop pursuing his enemy until they are all destroyed and he gets everything back. Nothing can stop him. He is that powerful. He is the Sovereign King; He is the Ultimate Priest; He is the Powerful Warrior.
So what do we do with this Psalm? Psalm 110 is all about Jesus. So what is our role in the story? I think the hint is in Psalm 110:3 – 3 Your people will offer themselves freely on the day of your power, in holy garments; from the womb of the morning, the dew of your youth will be yours. For those who have seen the beauty of Christ as our King, Priest and Warrior, the only natural response is for us to offer ourselves freely to him. It means that we are not sitting on the sidelines and cheer for him but rather we become part of his army and march to attack our enemies. I do not mean that we go home tonight and buy weapons for war. We are not fighting flesh and blood. We get our cued from our King. How does Jesus defeat his enemies? It is not through showcase of strength but through weakness. Jesus fought and won through the cross. Jesus defeated the power of Satan through the cross and he set his people free through it. That is his battle. That is our battle. We fight our enemies through the cross.
What does it mean? It means two things. First, we have to be kings. Kings exercise justice. Kings tells you what is right and wrong. We have to be the kind of people who are not afraid to tell people that they need to repent from their sins and believe in Jesus. It means that we ought to have the boldness to call sin, sin. We do not try to sugar coat and downplay the evilness of sin. Sin is sin. And every sin must be punished. It means that we need to be able to look at our colleague in the eyes and tell them that what they are doing is not right. It means we need to be able to tell them that unless they repent from their sin, the judgement of God will come for them. But we are not only called to be kings. If all we are, are kings, people won’t see the beauty of Christ. We are not only kings, but second, we have to be priests. What does priests do? Priests pray for other people. Priests sacrificially help other people. Priests shed tears with those who are hurts. Priests help the needy. Priest give their lives for the sake of others. This is what we are called to do. This is how we fight as the army of Christ.
The world needs Christians to be both kings and priests. We cannot choose one or the other. We have to exercise our kingship to the world with our words and we have to exercise our priesthood to the world with our lives. It is through both our words and lives that the world will witness the beauty of Christ. This is how we win the world. Words alone is not enough. Deeds alone is not enough. The world needs both our words and lives to show the beauty of Christ. Our words must call people into repentance and our lives must show the sacrificial love of Christ. This is what it means for us to be kings and priests to the world.
Let me close with one story from Acts chapter 7. This is the story of Stephen, the first Christian martyr. Stephen was both a priest and a king. He offered his lives to help the needy and ministered to them. Yet the religious leaders hated him and falsely accused him and brought him into court. Do you know what Stephen did? Rather than trying to save his lives, he called the people into repentance. He told them that they are evil, stiff-necked people and that God will judge them for what they do. The religious leaders were angry and ready to kill him. But then Stephen looked up. He gazed into heaven and he saw the glory of God. He saw his King, his Priest, his Warrior, Jesus, standing at the right hand of God. Stephen might be falsely accused in human court but when he looked up to the heavenly court, he sees Jesus standing there always praying for him, always interceding for him, always defending him. This is why Stephen was not afraid of his enemies. This is why Stephen can be both a king and a priest. Because he has Jesus as his King and Priest.
It does not matter what other people think of him. Stephen knew Jesus is for him and not against him. We can only be kings and priests if we know that Jesus is our King and Priest. Because we have Jesus as our King and Priest, who cares about what the world think of us? Now we can be kings and priests in this world. We can show them Jesus through our words and lives. We gladly offer our lives to be part of Christ’s army. And Christ’s victory is certain. He is a Warrior who will not stop until he conquered all of his enemies. Let’s pray.
