Psalms 105

Psalm 105

Remember the great deeds of God and rejoice in gratitude, exalting him forever

Psalm 105:1 O give thanks unto the LORD; call upon his name: make known his deeds among the people.  105:2 Sing unto him, sing psalms unto him: talk ye of all his wondrous works. 105:3 Glory ye in his holy name: let the heart of them rejoice that seek the LORD.

Seek God to live in the presence of God, living by his Word; because he is mighty to save his faithful. 

105:4 Seek the LORD, and his strength: seek his face evermore. 105:5 Remember his marvellous works that he hath done; his wonders, and the judgments of his mouth;

All those who faithfully trust in God and live by every Word of God are the true spiritual children of Abraham and Jacob, being their spiritual children.

Galatians 3:7  Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham. 

Psalm 105:6 O ye seed of Abraham his servant, ye children of Jacob his chosen.

God our Deliverer out of bondage to sin, will rule all the earth; and every nation and people will ultimately live by every Word of God or perish.

105:7 He is the LORD our God: his judgments are in all the earth.

All Israel and all humanity will be called into the eternal spiritual New Covenant of Jeremiah 31:31.

105:8 He hath remembered his covenant for ever, the word which he commanded to a thousand generations.  105:9 Which covenant he made with Abraham, and his oath unto Isaac; 105:10 And confirmed the same unto Jacob for a law, and to Israel for an everlasting covenant:

The physical promised land of Canaan will belong to a united Israel forever, and is an allegory that the sincerely repentant who live by every Word of God will enter the  spiritual Promised Land of eternal life.

105:11 Saying, Unto thee will I give the land of Canaan, the lot of your inheritance:

The promise of the land was made when Abraham, Isaac and Jacob were wonderers in the land.

105:12 When they were but a few men in number; yea, very few, and strangers in it.

God protected them as strangers in the land. 

105:13 When they went from one nation to another, from one kingdom to another people; 105:14 He suffered no man to do them wrong: yea, he reproved kings for their sakes; 105:15 Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm.

Joseph was tested by God until God called him out of prison. The spiritually called out are being tested by God until they are resurrected from the prison of death and the grave.

105:16 Moreover he called for a famine upon the land: he brake the whole staff of bread. 105:17 He sent a man before them, even Joseph, who was sold for a servant: 105:18 Whose feet they hurt with fetters: he was laid in iron: 105:19 Until the time that his word came: the word of the LORD tried him.

Joseph was made the ruler of Egypt by God after his testing;  and God’s faithful through the years are also being tested and will be made rulers by God when their resurrection comes.

105:20 The king sent and loosed him; even the ruler of the people, and let him go free. 105:21 He made him lord of his house, and ruler of all his substance: 105:22 To bind [command] his princes at his pleasure; and teach his senators wisdom.

Then Jacob came to Joseph in Egypt, and there Israel grew into a nation.

105:23 Israel also came into Egypt; and Jacob sojourned in the land of Ham. 105:24 And he [God] increased his people [Israel] greatly; and made them stronger than their enemies.

Then God hardened Pharaoh’s heart to use him as an example of Satan and bondage to sin.

105:25 He turned their heart to hate his people, to deal subtilly with his servants.

Then God sent Moses to lead Israel out of bondage in Egypt, as an example that God will ultimate deliver all humanity from bondage to Satan and sin.

105:26 He sent Moses his servant; and Aaron whom he had chosen. 105:27 They shewed his [God’s] signs among them, and wonders in the land of Ham. 105:28 He  [God] sent darkness, and made it dark [in an allegory the at that time Egypt was representative of the darkness of idolatry, ignorance and sin]; and they [the light faded away and the darkness  obeyed God] rebelled not against his word.

God made their waters to become like blood to teach us that worshiping [obeying] idols [including false teachers and false teachings] and refusing to live by every Word of God brings death, and living by the Word of God brings life.

105:29 He turned their waters into blood, and slew their fish.

The Eternal made the earthly things that the Egyptians held holy – from the Nile itself to the smallest insects – to become great plagues; to demonstrate that the Eternal is greater than and has power over all other gods.

105:30 Their land brought forth frogs in abundance, in the chambers of their kings.  105:31 He spake, and there came divers sorts of [biting, blood sucking insects] flies, and lice in all their coasts. 105:32 He gave them hail for rain, and flaming fire  in their land.

105:33 He smote their vines also and their fig trees; and brake the trees of their coasts. 105:34 He spake, and the locusts came, and caterpillers, and that without number, 105:35 And did eat up all the herbs in their land, and devoured the fruit of their ground.

All of the gods of Egypt were but physical things, and God demonstrated his power over them all so that we would know that all our own idols are but vain and meaningless fantasies, and that our only deliverance is to live by every Word of God.

105:36 He smote also all the firstborn in their land, the chief of all their strength.

Israel was delivered out of Egypt by the power of God and greatly blessed.  Even so, those who are faithful to live by every Word of God will be resurrected to spirit and they will receive great blessings and eternal life; if they persevere to live by every Word of God.

105:37 He brought them forth also with silver and gold: and there was not one feeble person among their tribes.

Just like ancient Egypt and the surrounding nations feared God and Israel, today’s nations will regard and fear God when they see God’s chosen rising from their graves to life eternal.

105:38 Egypt was glad when they departed: for the fear of them fell upon them.

In the wilderness God provided for his people; and God will watch over his spiritual faithful, giving them the Word of God which is the spiritual Bread of Life from heaven.

105:39 He spread a cloud for a covering; and fire to give light in the night. 105:40 The people asked, and he brought quails, and satisfied them with the bread of heaven.

When Christ comes with his chosen, the waters of the Holy Spirit will be poured out on all flesh (Joel 2:28)

105:41 He opened the rock, and the waters gushed out; they ran in the dry places like a river.

God remembered his promise to Abraham that his descendants would inherit that land; and God will remember the spiritual aspect of that promise, that all those whop are faithful to God like Abraham was faithful to God – which people are the children of Abraham in spirit – will inherit the spiritual Promised Land of eternal life. 

105:42 For he remembered his holy promise, and Abraham his servant.

God brought the physical descendants of Abraham out of bondage in Egypt; and God will bring forth the spiritual children of Abraham out from bondage to Satan, sin and the grave. 

Galatians 3:7  Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham. 

105:43 And he brought forth his people with joy, and his chosen with gladness:

God gave physical Israel a physical promised land; and God will give the spiritual children of Abraham the Promised Land of eternal life and dominion over all the earth an d universe under Messiah the King of kings.

105:44 And gave them the lands of the heathen: and they inherited the labour of the people;

The faithful to God will live by every Word of God forever and forever!

105:45 That they might observe his statutes, and keep his laws. Praise ye the LORD.
