The Wicked Shall Be Destroyed By The Power Of Christ
Psalm 2:1-12 NKJV
Why do the nations rage, And the people plot a vain thing?
 The kings of the earth set themselves, And the rulers take counsel together, Against the LORD and against His Anointed, saying,
 “Let us break Their bonds in pieces And cast away Their cords from us.”
 He who sits in the heavens shall laugh; The Lord shall hold them in derision.
 Then He shall speak to them in His wrath, And distress them in His deep displeasure:
 “Yet I have set My King On My holy hill of Zion.”
 “I will declare the decree: The LORD has said to Me, ‘You are My Son, Today I have begotten You.
 Ask of Me, and I will give You The nations for Your inheritance, And the ends of the earth for Your possession.
 You shall break them with a rod of iron; You shall dash them to pieces like a potter’s vessel.'”
 Now therefore, be wise, O kings; Be instructed, you judges of the earth.
 Serve the LORD with fear, And rejoice with trembling.
 Kiss the Son, lest He be angry, And you perish in the way, When His wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all those who put their trust in Him.
Isaiah 11:1-4 NKJV
There shall come forth a Rod from the stem of Jesse, And a Branch shall grow out of his roots.
 The Spirit of the LORD shall rest upon Him, The Spirit of wisdom and understanding, The Spirit of counsel and might, The Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD.
 His delight is in the fear of the LORD, And He shall not judge by the sight of His eyes, Nor decide by the hearing of His ears;
 But with righteousness He shall judge the poor, And decide with equity for the meek of the earth; He shall strike the earth with the rod of His mouth, And with the breath of His lips He shall slay the wicked.
Isaiah 63:3-6 NKJV
“I have trodden the winepress alone, And from the peoples no one was with Me. For I have trodden them in My anger, And trampled them in My fury; Their blood is sprinkled upon My garments, And I have stained all My robes.
 For the day of vengeance is in My heart, And the year of My redeemed has come.
 I looked, but there was no one to help, And I wondered That there was no one to uphold; Therefore My own arm brought salvation for Me; And My own fury, it sustained Me.
 I have trodden down the peoples in My anger, Made them drunk in My fury, And brought down their strength to the earth.”
2 Thessalonians 1:3-12 NKJV
We are bound to thank God always for you, brethren, as it is fitting, because your faith grows exceedingly, and the love of every one of you all abounds toward each other,
 so that we ourselves boast of you among the churches of God for your patience and faith in all your persecutions and tribulations that you endure,
 which is manifest evidence of the righteous judgment of God, that you may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which you also suffer;
 since it is a righteous thing with God to repay with tribulation those who trouble you,
 and to give you who are troubled rest with us when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven with His mighty angels,
 in flaming fire taking vengeance on those who do not know God, and on those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.
 These shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power,
 when He comes, in that Day, to be glorified in His saints and to be admired among all those who believe, because our testimony among you was believed.
 Therefore we also pray always for you that our God would count you worthy of this calling, and fulfill all the good pleasure of His goodness and the work of faith with power,
 that the name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in you, and you in Him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.
