THE SECOND PSALM
And
The Pre-existence of Yahshua

By Voy Wilks
1\31\00

Because Ps. 2:2 speaks of "Yahweh and his anointed," it has been said this indicates Yahshua pre-existed. This is a mistake. The reason:
There is an insurmountable problem with the chronology.

What is the chronology of this bit of history? Psalm two was a prophetic psalm of David, written about 1,000 B.C.E. Therefore the kings and rulers did not gather together against the Anointed One before that time; before 1,000 B.C.E.

It was impossible for the kings and rulers to set themselves against the Anointed one before these kings and rulers existed.

The Anointed one, and the kings and rulers had to exist at the same time in history in order to oppose each other.

The Apostle Peter gives us the correct timing of this prophecy in the Book of Acts.

"And when they [the Apostles] heard it, they lifted their voices together to Yahweh and said, Sovereign Yahweh who didst make the heaven and the earth and the sea and everything in them, who by the mouth of our father David, thy servant, didst say by the Holy Spirit,

"Why did the Gentiles rage, and the peoples imagine vain things? The kings of the earth set themselves in array, and the rulers were gathered together, against Yahweh and his Anointed - for truely in this city there were gathered against thy holy servant Yahshua, WHOM THOU DIDST ANOINT both Herod and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles, and the people of Israel, to do whatever thy hand and thy plan had predestined to take place" (Acts 4:24-30, RSV).

Brethern, this was the partial fulfillment of David's prophecy in Psalms 2:1-4. The remainder of the Psalm is yet to be fulfilled. Yahweh has not yet terrified his enemies (Ps.2:5), He has not yet set his Anointed on his holy hill of Zion {in Jerusalem} (Ps. 2:6), but he will do so one day in the future (Isa. 9:6, 7: 59:20, 21; Rom. 11:26; Luke 1:32; Acts 2:30, 31; 1 Cor. 15:26; Rev. 14:1).

"Yahweh has them in derision" (Ps. 2:4). This was in two phases, evidently:

(1) When Yahweh made a laughing stock of his enemies by raising Yahshua from the dead (Col. 2:15; Eph. 6:12); and

(2) In the future when Yahweh terrifies the kings and rulers of the earth.

Psalm 2:8, 9 speaks of a time which is obviously future, even from today. The Saints, under Yahshua's supervision, will rule the earth with a rod of iron (Rev. 2:27).

Conclusion

Now that we have reviewed Psalm 2 and related Scriptures, it seems evident that this Psalm does not qualify as evidence supporting the pre-existence of Yahshua.

The End.
