The hallmark of an adept pulpiteer (Bible preacher) is critical thinking. A pulpiteer must carefully examine scripture using proper hermeneutics to covey a message. Let’s examine these four Scriptures to see what message can be conveyed. You have NEVER seen these four Scriptures put together to convey a message.
Psalms 2:12 – Kiss the Son,
lest he be angry, and you perish in the way,
for his wrath is quickly kindled. Blessed are all who take refuge in him.
Luke 7:41 – Then turning toward the woman he said to Simon, “Do you see this woman? I entered your house; you gave me no water for my feet, but she has wet my feet with her tears and wiped them with her hair. You gave me no kiss, but from the time I came in she has not ceased to kiss my feet. You did not anoint my head with oil, but she has anointed my feet with ointment. Therefore I tell you, her sins, which are many, are forgiven—for she loved much. But he who is forgiven little, loves little.”
Luke 22:47 – While he was still speaking, there came a crowd, and the man called Judas, one of the twelve, was leading them. He drew near to Jesus to kiss him, but Jesus said to him, “Judas, would you betray the Son of Man with a kiss?”
Roman’s 16:16 – Greet one another with a holy kiss. All the churches of Christ greet you.
Psalms 2:12 is a Messianic Psalm. It tells of the coming Jesus Christ. Jesus confirms He is the Messiah by relating Psalms 2:12 to Himself. He relates this Passage to Himself as a woman anoints and kisses His feet (Luke 7:41). Notice she kisses Jesus’ feet in humility and not to be noticed. Judas on the other hand betrayed Jesus with a kiss. Instead of kissing the Son for Judas’ deliverance, he kisses the Son to have the Son bound.
Today we are not able to kiss the Son physically, but when we kiss one another (the Body of Christ), it is the same as kissing the Son (Romans 16:16).
Question: What message are we sending our brothers, sisters, and others when we kiss our brothers and sisters?
Wow!!!! Simple, but you have never heard it before. It’s not hard to do. It takes simple hermeneutics and homiletics.
