Kiss the Son{with me}

September 18, 2014

Streams in the desert
Living water let it flow
A drink for the people of God -Is 43:20-21
Living water
Living stones
To proclaim the praise
Of the One and Only
Kiss the Son
The Holy and anointed One
Worship in Spirit and Truth
Won’t you bow down and
Kiss the Son
With me?

Psalm 2:11-12 AMP
11 Serve the Lord with reverent awe and worshipful fear; rejoice and be in high spirits with trembling [lest you displease Him].
12 Kiss the Son [pay homage to Him in purity], lest He be angry and you perish in the way, for soon shall His wrath be kindled. O blessed (happy, fortunate, and to be envied) are all those who seek refuge and put their trust in Him!

John 4:23-24 AMP
23 A time will come, however, indeed it is already here, when the true (genuine) worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth (reality); for the Father is seeking just such people as these as His worshipers.
24 God is a Spirit (a spiritual Being) and those who worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth (reality).

From NetBible Ps 2:11-12

  • * The Hebrew verb translated “serve” refers here to submitting to the Lord’s sovereignty as expressed through the rule of the Davidic king. Such “service” would involve maintaining allegiance to the Davidic king by paying tribute on a regular basis.
  • *Kiss the Son = in trembling kiss His feet, pay homage in purity
  • kiss[05401] = HEBREW nashaq: kiss

From NetBible Jn 4:23-24

  • worship[4352] = GREEK proskuneo: to kiss, like a dog licking his master’s hand)

‘Kiss the Son’ – the hebrew translates nashqu bar as “pay homage in good faith” or “pay homage in purity”. The homage is to the Lord of Psalm 2:2 and to the Son of Psalm 2:7 — the Messiah King. Homage, kissing a King also implies submission. The Greek word for worship captures this idea – proskuneo – to kiss the hand toward, to do reverence or homage by kissing the hand, to bow oneself in adoration. This is to pay homage in recognition of royalty, to show submission to a king, to be under the king’s reign – like a dog licking his master’s hand.

1 Peter 2:4-5 NKJV
4 Coming to Him as to a living stone, rejected indeed by men, but chosen by God and precious, 5 you also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.

Hebrews 13:15 NKJV
15 Therefore by Him[Jesus] let us continually offer the sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to His name.

Lilies Dripping Liquid Myrrh

June 10, 2011

Psalm 2:11-12Serve the Lord with reverent awe and worshipful fear; rejoice and be in high spirits with trembling [lest you displease Him]. Kiss the Son [pay homage to Him in purity], lest He be angry and you perish in the way, for soon shall His wrath be kindled. O blessed (happy, fortunate, and to be envied) are all those who seek refuge and put their trust in Him.

This morning I was thinking about the phrase ‘Kiss the Son’ and my article of the same name. My heart was stirred …

Psalm 45:1 … For the director of music. To the tune of “Lilies”. Of the Sons of Korah. A maskil. A wedding/love song. [KAREN’S version :)]
My heart is stirred by a beautiful song, it overflows its banks, beauty 
bubbles up and bursts forth. I sing of the things which I have made 
touching (kissing?) the king: my tongue is the pen of a ready writer, 
shaping the river into words!

My Jesus
My beautiful Jesus
O how I long
To bow down in purity before my King
To taste and see -Ps 34:8
Sweetness itself -Song 5:16
His kisses in my mouth -Song 1:2
Sweeter than honey -Ps 119:103
The goodness of the Holy One
Anointed lips, the lips of the Son -Ps 45:2
Lilies dripping liquid myrrh -Song 5:13

My Jesus
My beautiful Jesus
O how I long to sing
At Your right hand eternal pleasures -Ps 16:11
Jesus, my beautiful Jesus
You are my sweet sweet song -Ex 15:2Isa 12:2
For evermore.

Word StudyFrom NetBible -Song 5:13

At His Feet

June 5, 2009

Matthew 28:9    Suddenly Jesus met them. “Greetings,” he said. They came to him, *clasped his feet and **worshipped him.

This group of women followed Jesus to care for His needs  — even in His death. Among them were Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of James and Joseph (Mt 27:55-56). Mary Magdalene and this other Mary were also at Jesus’ tomb (Mt 28:1). They were the first to discover that Jesus had risen. They were also the first ones that Jesus appeared to after His resurrection.

____________________________________________________________ 
Matthew 28:5-10 
The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples: ‘He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.’ Now I have told you.” So the women hurried away from the tomb, afraid yet filled with joy, and ran to tell his disciples. Suddenly Jesus met them. “Greetings,” he said. They came to him, *clasped his feet and **worshipped him. Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid. Go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee; there they will see me.” 
____________________________________________________________ 

The women were being obedient when they met the risen Christ. Before this they were in awe and filled with joy — because they encountered the angel and the empty tomb. The NKJV has the word ‘Rejoice’ instead of ‘Greetings’ . Look what the women do after the Lord says to ‘Rejoice’! They fall at Jesus’ feet and worship — grabbing hold of Him  — clasping His feet.

The word for clasping has the idea of  taking hold of, keeping faithfully with power. It is an indication of how hard these women were following after Jesus, to care for and minister unto Him. How hard are you trying to seek after and minister unto the Lord?

Also the worship at Jesus’ feet comes from the word proskuneo [4352] which means to prostrate oneself in reverence and adoration to pay homage as to a King. This is the same word found in the phrase ‘Kiss the Son’.

Psalm 2:11-12     Serve the LORD with fear and rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son, lest he be angry and you be destroyed in your way, for his wrath can flare up in a moment. Blessed are all who take refuge in him.

‘Kiss the Son’ – the hebrew translates nashqu bar as “pay homage in good faith” or “pay homage in purity”. The homage is to the Lord of Psalm 2:2 and to the Son of Psalm 2:7 — the Messiah King. Homage, kissing a King also implies submission. The Greek word for worship captures this idea – proskuneo – to kiss the hand toward, to do reverence or homage by kissing the hand, to bow oneself in adoration. This is to pay homage in recognition of royalty, to show submission to a king, to be under the king’s reign.
