Our lives are wrapped up in this sacramental drama. Jesus is enthroned and is being enthroned not just as a mediatorial Davidic ruler but as the Creator-King himself. His compassionate message to the nations extends throughout the earth and the ages by means of his holy body, the Church. Thus, we are commissioned (the mission of God) to spread this warning to the nations that rebellion against Jesus’ universal rule will result in utter destruction. We proclaim not only the message of impending judgment but also the message of compassion that the nations can find blessing and happiness if they serve, worship, and trust the King.
Happy are all those who seek refuge in the King!
