Preparing the Way of the Lord

Psalms 29 – 30

Psalm 29

The faithful are mighty to overcome by the power of the Just and Mighty Deliverer, therefore let us rejoice and  praise God, the Just and Holy!

Psalm 29:1 Give unto the LORD, O ye mighty, give unto the LORD glory and strength.  29:2 Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name; worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness.

When Messiah the Christ comes, the voice of righteousness will ring forth through the whole earth and all nations shall flow to him.

Isaiah 2:2   And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the Lord‘s house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it.

Psalm 29:3 The voice of the LORD is upon the waters [nations, peoples]: the God of glory thundereth: the LORD is upon many waters.

The earth and heavens tremble at the voice [Word] of God, who is mighty to destroy the wicked and to deliver God’s faithful who live by every Word of God

29:4 The voice of the LORD is powerful; the voice of the LORD is full of majesty. 29:5 The voice of the LORD breaketh the cedars [the strong and mighty men]; yea, the LORD breaketh the cedars of Lebanon [the great among the Gentiles].

29:6 He maketh them [the great nations] also to skip like a calf; Lebanon and Sirion [an ancient name for Mt Hermon] like a young unicorn.

29:7 The voice of the LORD divideth [saves the godly and separates the wicked into Gehenna] the flames of fire.

29:8 The voice of the LORD shaketh the wilderness [a figurative type of the ungodly]; the LORD shaketh the wilderness of Kadesh.

The voice [Word] of God created and sustains all things, and his faithful glorify and obey him

29:9The voice of the LORD maketh the hinds [God created animals and enabled them to reproduce] to calve, and discovereth [God created the forests] the forests: and in his temple[spiritually God’s faithful (spiritual temple) glorify God] doth every one speak of his glory.

Messiah the King of kings shall  rule all nations

29:10 The LORD sitteth upon the flood [many nations]; yea, the LORD sitteth King for ever.

29:11 The LORD will give strength unto his [the faithful who live by every Word of God] people; the LORD will bless his people [in the resurrection  to spirit with eternal life and peace] with peace.


Psalm 30

Praises for God’s deliverance

Psalm 30:1 I will extol thee, O LORD; for thou hast lifted me up, and hast not made my foes to rejoice over me.  30:2 O LORD my God, I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me.

God spiritually heals his faithful from bondage to sin and from the wages of sin, which is death

30:3 O LORD, thou hast brought up my soul from the grave: thou hast kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit [grave].

The faithful who live by every Word of God, will be raised up from death and the grave to eternal life

30:4 Sing unto the LORD, O ye saints of his, and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness. 30:5 For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.

Let us rejoice for the correction of the LORD is momentary and is for our good that he might save us to eternal life

30:6 And in my prosperity [blessings of godliness] I said, I shall never be moved [away from godliness]30:7 LORD, by thy favour thou hast made my mountain [house, family or kingdom, government] to stand strong: thou didst hide thy face, and I was troubled.

God’s eternal blessings come to those who will not be moved from living by every Word of God

30:8 I cried to thee, O LORD; and unto the LORD I made supplication.

Let us quickly sincerely repent and seek the mercy of the LORD with dedicated single mindedness when we fall astray and quickly turn back to live by every Word of God

30:9 What profit is there in my blood, when I go down to the pit [grave]? Shall the dust praise thee? shall it declare thy truth?

What does it profit us if we cleave to past sins, errors and false traditions and reject knowledge of the Word of God for our own ways?  Far better to be humbled and sincerely repent, crying out to the Mighty One to deliver us and mercifully forgive us, for we can do nothing in the grave.

Holy Father, Mighty One; give us a repentant heart and be merciful making a New Covenant with us; write your Word and Law upon our hearts

Jeremiah 31:33   But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the Lord, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.
Psalm 30:10 Hear, O LORD, and have mercy upon me: LORD, be thou my helper.
Forgive us, oh Lord, and turn our sadness over our sins, into rejoicing over your mercies

30:11 Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing: thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness; 30:12 To the end that my glory [in my forgiveness and resurrection] may sing praise to thee, and not be silent.  O LORD my God, I will give thanks unto thee for ever.
