The Golden Scepter Or the Rod of Iron

"The Lord has a golden sceptre and an iron rod. Psalm 2:9. Those who will not bow to the one, shall be broken by the other."
Thomas Watson

Php 2:9  For this reason also, God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, 
Php 2:10  so that at the name of Jesus EVERY KNEE WILL BOW, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 
Php 2:11  and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. 

"Behold, the Lord's hand is not shortened, that it cannot save;
nor His ear dull, that it cannot hear,
but your iniquities have separated you from your God;
and your sins have hidden His face from you,
so that He will not hear.
For your hands are defiled with blood,
and your fingers with iniquity;
Your lips have spoken lies,
your tongue has muttered perversity.
No one calls for justice, nor does any plead for truth.
They trust in empty words and speak lies;
They conceive evil and bring forth iniquity.
They hatch vipers' eggs and weave the spiders web;
He who eats of their eggs dies,
and from that which is crushed a viper breaks out.
Their webs will not become garments,
nor will they cover themselves with their works;
Their works are works of iniquity,
and the act of violence is in their hands.
Their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed innocent blood;
Their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity;
Wasting and destruction are in their paths,
the way of peace they have not known,
and there is no justice in their ways;
They have made themselves crooked paths;
Isaiah 59:1-8
