Preparing the Way of the Lord

Psalms 145 – 150 The Feast of the Eighth Day

Psalms 145 to 150 are songs of praise and rejoicing in the LORD by all people then living in the millennium; after Christ comes to deliver mankind from Satan, sin and death.

These Psalms are mainly about the Feast of the Eighth Day, when all peoples and nations will sing the praises of the LORD forevermore after the main harvest of humanity is brought into the Family of God. 

God will give every person an opportunity to be delivered from bondage to Satan, sin and death; those who embrace that opportunity will receive the gift of life everlasting while the incorrigible unrepentant wicked will perish and the earth will be cleansed by fire.  God the father will then come down to the earth and His children will inherit the universe under the Father’s leadership.  

Mankind which has been redeemed and saved from eternal death, to be given the gift of eternal life in peace, with no more war, suffering or death, and the gift of a universe to complete and perfect; will praise their Maker and Deliverer and their Father for all His goodness, all His mercy and all His love forevermore! 

Revelation 21:4  And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

The time has come to prepare the bride, for the time is close at hand and the bridegroom is ready to come for his wife! 

Let the bride awake,  arise and prepare herself, for the table of the LORD is being set with the solid meat of sound doctrine so that she might make herself ready by removing every spot and blemish of sin through internalizing every Word of her Beloved Husband and His Father in heaven!  

If she is not ready her Husband will not wait for her, but will leave her standing alone and ashamed while he takes those who are ready to the Marriage of the Lamb.  May the brethren be made ready by zealously, enthusiastically;  LEARNING, INTERNALIZING and LIVING by EVERY WORD of God!

 

Psalm 145

Psalm 145:1 I will extol thee, my God, O king; and I will bless thy name for ever and ever.  145:2 Every day will I bless thee; and I will praise thy name for ever and ever. 145:3 Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised; and his greatness is unsearchable.

145:4 One generation shall praise thy works to another [every generation will praise God to all others], and shall declare thy mighty acts.  145:5 I will speak of the glorious honour of thy majesty, and of thy wondrous works.  145:6 And men shall speak of the might of thy terrible acts: and I will declare thy greatness.  145:7 They shall abundantly utter the memory of thy great goodness, and shall sing of thy righteousness.

The LORD will yet save humanity!

145:8 The LORD is gracious, and full of compassion; slow to anger, and of great mercy.  145:9 The LORD is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works.  145:10 All thy works shall praise thee, O LORD; and thy saints [all sincerely repentant people] shall bless thee.

145:11 They shall speak of the glory of thy kingdom, and talk of thy power;  145:12 To make known to the sons of men his mighty acts, and the glorious majesty of his kingdom.  145:13 Thy kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and thy dominion endureth throughout all generations.

145:14 The LORD upholdeth all that fall, and raiseth up all those that be bowed down.  145:15 The eyes of all wait upon thee; and thou givest them their meat in due season.  145:16 Thou openest thine hand, and satisfiest the desire of every living thing.

145:17 The LORD is righteous in all his ways, and holy in all his works.  145:18 The LORD is nigh unto all them that call upon him, to all that call upon him in truth.  145:19 He will fulfil the desire of them that fear him: he also will hear their cry, and will save them.

145:20 The LORD preserveth all them that love him [enough to live by every Word of God]: but all the wicked will he destroy.

145:21 My mouth shall speak the praise of the LORD: and let all flesh bless his holy name for ever and ever.

 

Psalm 146

Psalm 146:1 Praise ye the LORD. Praise the LORD, O my soul.  146:2 While I live [the godly will live forever] will I praise the LORD: I will sing praises unto my God while I have any being.

Do not trust in the words of men but test every word of men by the Word of God, and hold fast only to what is consistent with every Word of God (1 Thess 5:22):  No matter what temporal or ecclesiastical title men may claim. 

146:3 Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help.  146:4 His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth; in that very day his thoughts perish.

No man can save us and no words of men can save us: Only God the Father, King of the Universe and the Creator, can deliver men from Satan, sin, death and the grave.

146:5 Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the LORD his God:  146:6 Which made heaven, and earth, the sea, and all that therein is: which keepeth truth for ever:  146:7 Which executeth judgment for the oppressed: which giveth food to the hungry. The LORD looseth the prisoners:

The Eternal will open the eyes of the spiritually blind and will deliver those stooped down in bondage to sin.  The righteousness of God is to live by every Word of God.

146:8 The LORD openeth the eyes of the blind: the LORD raiseth them that are bowed down: the LORD loveth the righteous:

The Eternal will save those cast out of the Assemblies for their zeal to live by every Word of God,  and God will save those cut off from their physical families for their zeal for godliness.

146:9 The LORD preserveth the strangers; he relieveth the fatherless and widow: but the way of the wicked he turneth upside down.

The Feast of the Eighth Day pictures a humanity changed to spirit, going forward into eternity with God, in the righteousness of living by every Word of God.  Eternity as represented by the Feast of the Eighth Day will begin when the New Jerusalem comes down to the earth from heaven.

146:10 The LORD shall reign for ever, even thy God, O Zion, unto all generations. Praise ye the LORD.

 

Psalm 147

Praises to God for the coming and deliverance of Christ the Messiah, and for the opportunity of eternal salvation!

Psalm 147:1 Praise ye the LORD: for it is good to sing praises unto our God; for it is pleasant; and praise is comely.

When Christ comes, Jerusalem and the third Temple will be built as per Ezekiel 40 – 48 and representative populations of ALL the tribes of Israel will return to the physical Promised Land.  Then those who have been humbled and had their pride broken to contrition and sincere repentance will be saved.

147:2 The LORD doth build up Jerusalem: he gathereth together the outcasts of Israel.  147:3 He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds.

God the Father knows every star in the heavens and he knows and loves all those who turn to Him to live by every Word of God.  All the sincerely repentant who are meek, submissive and humble before God, turning in sincere repentance to diligently live by every Word of God; will be healed in spirit and delivered from bondage to Satan, sin and death; and the unrepentant wicked will be destroyed.

147:4 He telleth the number of the stars; he calleth them all by their names.  147:5 Great is our Lord, and of great power: his understanding is infinite.  147:6 The LORD lifteth up [delivers] the meek: he casteth the wicked down to the ground.

When Christ comes a repentant Israel and humanity will sing to God in rejoicing for their deliverance; singing out to the Great God, the Giver of Salvation and all Good Things. 

147:7 Sing unto the LORD with thanksgiving; sing praise upon the harp unto our God:  147:8 Who covereth the heaven with clouds, who prepareth rain for the earth, who maketh grass to grow upon the mountains.  147:9 He giveth to the beast his food, and to the young ravens which cry.

God has all power and has no need of the help of horse or man.

147:10 He delighteth not in the strength of the horse: he taketh not pleasure in the legs of a man.

God will save all those who fear to sin and who love and respect God enough to live by every Word of God.

147:11 The LORD taketh pleasure in them that fear him, in those that hope in his mercy.

Jerusalem as the capital represents all the tribes and people of Israel, and when their Deliverer comes to save then they will all surely rejoice and praise God.

147:12 Praise the LORD, O Jerusalem; praise thy God, O Zion.

God will make Jerusalem the capital of Messiah over the whole earth and will greatly bless her, placing the Ezekiel Temple of God within her.

147:13 For he hath strengthened the bars of thy gates; he hath blessed thy children within thee.  147:14 He maketh peace in thy borders, and filleth thee with the finest of the wheat.

Micah 4:2  And many nations shall come, and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, and to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths [God’s ways, Word]: for the law shall go forth of Zion, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.

Psalm 147:15 He sendeth forth his commandment upon earth: his word runneth very swiftly.

God the Creator made all things including the heat and the cold and the seasons of the earth.

God created the beautiful patterns of the night frost, scattering the hoar frost like grey ashes on the ground; and God makes the snows to fall on the mountains in winter and causes them to melt in summer to water the land.

147:16 He giveth snow like wool: he scattereth the hoarfrost like ashes. 147:17 He casteth forth his ice like morsels: who can stand before his cold? 147:18 He sendeth out his word, and melteth them: he causeth his wind to blow, and the waters flow.

In that day, God’s Spirit will be poured out on all flesh (Joel 2:28) and all nations which have not known God will be grafted into the New Covenant (Jer 31:31) and a new spiritual Israel.

147:19 He sheweth his word unto Jacob, his statutes and his judgments unto Israel.  147:20 He hath not dealt so with any nation: and as for his judgments, they have not known them. Praise ye the LORD.

 

Psalm 148

A song of praise to God and Messiah for making all things and for the deliverance of men from Satan, sin, death and the grave to eternal salvation.  Let every person and every being praise the Mighty God of Jacob, forever and forever, Amen!

Psalm 148:1 Praise ye the LORD. Praise ye the LORD from the heavens: praise him in the heights.

148:2 Praise ye him, all his angels: praise ye him, all his hosts.  148:3 Praise ye him, sun and moon: praise him, all ye stars of light.  148:4 Praise him, ye heavens of heavens, and ye waters that be above the heavens.

God created all things and is worthy of praise and great glory!

148:5 Let them praise the name of the LORD: for he commanded, and they were created.  148:6 He hath also stablished them for ever and ever: he hath made a decree which shall not pass.  148:7 Praise the LORD from the earth, ye dragons [wild beasts], and all deeps [creatures in the sea]:

All things will be brought into subjection and under control by God the Almighty!

148:8 Fire, and hail; snow, and vapours; stormy wind fulfilling his word: 148:9 Mountains, and all hills; fruitful trees, and all cedars:  148:10 Beasts, and all cattle; creeping things, and flying fowl:

All men will be humbled and offered the gift of Eternal Salvation, and they shall praise the God of their Salvation forever and forever, Amen!

148:11 Kings of the earth, and all people; princes, and all judges of the earth:  148:12 Both young men, and maidens; old men, and children:  148:13 Let them praise the name of the LORD: for his name alone is excellent; his glory is above the earth and heaven.

148:14 He also exalteth the horn [life and strength] of his people, the praise of all his saints [the saints are those who live by every Word of God]; even of the children of [the sincerely repentant from all nations will be grafted into the New Covenant spiritual Israel] Israel, a people [New Covenant spiritual Israel (Jer 31:31) will be a people near unto God, and the Word of God will be written in their minds and on their hearts] near unto him. Praise ye the LORD.

 

Psalm 149

At the coming of Messiah the Christ, the resurrected saints will sing a new song of rejoicing in the deliverance of the Mighty Saviour. 

Psalm 149:1 Praise ye the LORD. Sing unto the LORD a new song, and his praise in the congregation of saints.

Just as Israel rejoiced when they came up out of the Red Sea and saw their pursuers destroyed,  the saints of spiritual Israel will break out in song and will dance and shout in great rejoicing when the Saviour comes and they are resurrected and delivered from the bondage of death and the grave!

149:2 Let Israel rejoice in him that made him: let the children of Zion be joyful in their King.  149:3 Let them praise his name in the dance: let them sing praises unto him with the timbrel and harp.

The Eternal will save his sincerely repentant people and will give the gift of eternal salvation to those who are meek and teachable before God the Great, the Almighty!

149:4 For the LORD taketh pleasure in his people: he will beautify the meek with salvation.

When Messiah comes with deliverance the resurrected saints will rejoice day and night for their deliverance from bondage to Satan, sin and death.

149:5 Let the saints be joyful in glory: let them sing aloud upon their beds.

The resurrected  servants of God will be full of the TRUTH of every Word of God, and the sword of truth will continually be in their mouths to destroy all wickedness and sin from off the earth!

149:6 Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two-edged sword in their hand;

Messiah the Christ and all his resurrected saints – the bride of the New Covenant – will come to rule all nations with the truth and righteousness of every Word of God, and they will correct the unrepentant and cleanse the earth of wickedness and sin.  

149:7 To execute vengeance upon the heathen [the unrepentant wicked], and punishments upon the [upon unrepentant wicked people] people; 

The king of wickedness is Satan and his kings are his spirit followers who have enslaved the nations;  they will be bound and imprisoned for one thousand years and will then be defeated one last time and judged to destruction.  See the Fall Festivals studies.

149:8 To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron;

The resurrected saints will have the honour, with Christ; of executing the judgment of God and destroying Satan and his demonic followers on the Fast of Atonement.

149:9 To execute upon them the judgment written: this honour have all his saints. Praise ye the LORD.

 

Psalm 150

God our Maker the God of our Salvation will save humanity from bondage to Satan, demons, sin, sorrows, suffering and death; to give the gift of eternal life to all those who live by every Word of God. 

Then as pictured by The Feast of The Eighth Day, all sincerely repentant humanity will inherit the entire universe and will go forward in peace and unity with God for everlasting eternity!  

Praise God forever and forever, for all that he does for the sins of men!

Psalm 150:1 Praise ye the LORD. Praise God in his sanctuary: praise him in the firmament of his power. 150:2 Praise him for his mighty acts: praise him according to his excellent greatness.  150:3 Praise him with the sound of the trumpet: praise him with the psaltery and harp. 150:4 Praise him with the timbrel and dance: praise him with stringed instruments and organs.  150:5 Praise him upon the loud cymbals: praise him upon the high sounding cymbals.  150:6 Let every thing that hath breath praise the LORD. Praise ye the LORD.
