Preparing the Way of the Lord

Psalms 100 – 102

Psalm 100

All nations and people will sincerely repent and greatly rejoice, entering into eternal life in the family of God; serving God through living by every Word of God.

Psalm 100:1 Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands.  100:2 Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing.

The eternal YHVH family has made us and is God alone and is to be exalted and obeyed forever. We are to follow NO other; we are to live by every Word of God!

100:3 Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

100:4 Enter into his gates [His household, His family] with thanksgiving, and into his courts [presence] with praise: be thankful unto him [for creating us and for saving us to eternal life], and bless his name.

God is merciful to all those who turn to God in sincere repentance to STOP all sin and to live by every Word of God

100:5 For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.

 

Psalm 101

The people will sing for joy because Messiah the Christ will teach the truth and judgment of every Word of God the Father and of his mercy for the sincerely repentant.

Psalm 101:1 I will sing of mercy and judgment: unto thee, O LORD, will I sing.

David commits to live by every Word of God as Christ did and does

101:2 I will behave myself wisely in a perfect way [the ways of the Word of God]. O when wilt thou come unto me? I will walk [live] within my house with a perfect [perfect in living by every Word of God the Father] heart.

Neither David nor Christ coveted to do evil contrary to the Word of God.  Yes David slipped but quickly repented, but Jesus Christ who never slipped is our example in godliness.

101:3 I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes: I hate the work [deeds] them that turn aside [turn away from God’s Word]; it [sin against the Word of God] shall not cleave to me.

101:4 A froward [stubborn, self-willed] heart shall depart from me: I will not know [be a friend of wickedness] a wicked person.

Telling the truth openly is not slander; telling lies is slander. 

101:5 Whoso privily [secretly] slandereth his neighbour, him will I cut off: [Jesus Christ will not tolerate the proud in their own ways] him that hath an high look and a proud heart will not I suffer.

101:6 Mine eyes shall be upon the faithful [to live by every Word of God] of the land, that they may dwell with me: he that walketh in a perfect way [lives by every Word of God], he shall serve me [Christ].

It is very common in today’s spiritual Ekklesia to take a small bit of truth out of its context and then spin it to mean the opposite of what it really meant in its complete context.  That is LYING and it is deception which Jesus Christ and God the Father HATE!

101:7 He that worketh deceit shall not dwell within my house: he that telleth lies shall not tarry in my sight.

When Christ comes he will destroy all of the unrepentant transgressors of the Word of God.

101:8 I will early destroy all the wicked of the land; that I may cut off all wicked doers from the city of the LORD.

 

Psalm 102

Correction of the flesh brings sorrow over sin unto sincere repentance, which brings deliverance to the spirit.

Psalm 102:1 Hear my prayer, O LORD, and let my cry come unto thee. 102:2 Hide not thy face from me in the day when I am in trouble; incline thine ear unto me: in the day when I call answer me speedily. 102:3 For my days are consumed [dissipate]  like smoke, and my bones are burned as [in the fire] an hearth.

102:4 My heart is smitten [pride is broken to contrition], and withered like grass; so that I forget to eat my bread [for sorrow and heaviness of spirit]102:5 By reason of the voice of my groaning my bones cleave to my skin.

The afflicted is separated from God by his sins, alone and wondering like a bird in the wilderness. 

102:6 I am like a pelican of the wilderness: I am like an owl of the desert.  102:7 I watch, and am as a sparrow alone upon the house top.

Our enemies mock us because we are afflicted for our sins.

102:8 Mine enemies reproach me all the day; and they that are mad against me are sworn against me. 102:9 For I have eaten ashes [of affliction] like bread, and mingled my drink with weeping.

God called us and lifted us up from bondage to sin, and God casts us back down and afflicts us when we turn away from him to sin against His Word.

102:10 Because of thine indignation and thy wrath: for thou hast lifted me up, and cast me down.

102:11 My days are like a shadow that declineth [my life is fading and withering away because of my sins]; and I am withered like grass.

David learns that man is but flesh which is temporary and passing while Go and the Word of God are forever and forever. 

102:12 But thou, O LORD, shall endure for ever; and thy remembrance unto all generations.

God will have mercy on his sincerely repentant people.

102:13 Thou shalt arise, and have mercy upon Zion [the temple mount and a type of the people of God who seek to sincerely repent and live by every Word of God]: for the time [for the coming of Christ is at hand] to favour her [Jerusalem and the people of God], yea, the set time, is come.

The true servants of God love his presence among them; they will love Jerusalem because the temple of God the Father will be there and Messiah the Christ will rue all nations from Jerusalem.

102:14 For thy servants take pleasure in her stones, and favour the dust thereof.

When Christ comes all nations shall sincerely repent to serve and live by every Word of God.

102:15 So the heathen shall fear the name of the LORD, and all the kings of the earth thy glory.

When Christ comes as King of kings with his chosen, he will come in his glory.

102:16 When the LORD shall build up Zion, he shall appear in his glory.

Then God will regard the prayers of the sincerely repentant who acknowledge that they are spiritually destitute and in need of God.

102:17 He will regard the prayer of the destitute [poor in spirit], and not despise their prayer.

When Christ comes in his glory it will be told from generation to generation.

102:18 This shall be written for the generation to come: and the people which shall be created shall praise the LORD. 

Our Mighty One will hear the groaning of his afflicted and will see their sincere repentance and will deliver them.

102:19 For he hath looked down from the height of his sanctuary; from heaven did the LORD behold the earth; 102:20 To hear the groaning of the prisoner; to loose those that are appointed to death;

Messiah will teach the Word of God the Father to all people when he comes, and they will worship God living by every Word of God.

102:21 To declare the name of the LORD in Zion, and his praise in Jerusalem; 102:22 When the people are gathered together, and the kingdoms, to serve the LORD.

For a short time we will be afflicted because of our sins, so that by afflicting the flesh the spirit may be saved.

102:23 He weakened my strength in the way; he shortened my days.

When we are afflicted we shall acknowledge the transitory and meaningless nature of the flesh and our own ways, then we will sincerely repent turning to the things that last forever.

102:24 I said, O my God, take me not away in the midst of my days: thy years are throughout all generations. 102:25 Of old hast thou laid the foundation of the earth: and the heavens are the work of thy hands.

Even if the earth itself should perish God and every Word of God will last forever; What is man when God has power to change the very planets.

102:26 They shall perish, but thou shalt endure: yea, all of them shall wax old like a garment; as a vesture shalt thou change them, and they shall be changed:

102:27 But thou art the same, and thy years shall have no end.

Men can live forever if they are founded and  established on the Word of God.

102:28 The children of thy servants shall continue, and their seed shall be established before thee.
