The King of my life
Your throne, O God, endures forever and ever. You rule with a scepter of justice. You love justice and hate evil. Therefore God, your God, has anointed you, pouring out the oil of joy on you more than on anyone else. Myrrh, aloes, and cassia perfume your robes. In ivory palaces the music of strings entertains you. Psalms 45:6-8
From the text, the Psalmist declared what the King of heaven did so He could show His love. He left His heavenly home and laid aside His royal robe, scented with perfume so He could enter this world of despair. There is no doubt that the Psalmist was describing the beauty and fragrance of the Lord Jesus Christ. It is obvious that what is described in this prophecy in the book of Psalms is the coming of Christ in this world. Hebrews 1:8 says, “But to the Son he says, “Your throne, O God, endures forever and ever. You rule with a scepter of justice.” The writer of Hebrews is quoting Psalm 45:6 and it is a reference to the Lord Jesus Christ. The king described by the Psalmist is God. The reference to the scepter signifies rulership and his rule is upright and righteous, When Jesus left heaven, He came to earth not wearing any royal robe but He was “wrapped in swaddling clothes” and He was “laid in a manger” (Luke 2:12). When He grew up, He walked in the dusty roads of Jerusalem and Judea not wearing royal robe. In one occasion He was described as laying aside His “outer clothing and wrapped a towel around his waist. After that, he poured water into a basin and began to wash his disciples’ feet, drying them with the towel that was wrapped around him” (John 13:4-5). The King of glory did something strange! Yet, this strange event He did for His disciples was nothing compared to what the soldiers did when He was hanged on the cross. “When the soldiers crucified Jesus, they took his clothes, dividing them into four shares, one for each of them, with the undergarment remaining. This garment was seamless, woven in one piece from top to bottom. “Let’s not tear it,” they said to one another. “Let’s decide by lot who will get it” (John 19:23-24). However, there will come a time when the King of glory will be arrayed in splendor, wearing His royal robe; “and among the lampstands was someone like a son of man, dressed in a robe reaching down to his feet and with a golden sash around his chest” (Revelation 1:13). One day, those who trusted Jesus as Lord and Savior, placed their trust and believed in Him will see the King of glory face to face. Let Christ have His proper place in your life by making Him the King that rules every area of your life.
