Preparing the Way of the Lord

Psalms 46 – 47

 Psalm 46

Jesus Christ is the LORD and refuge of the faithful who live by every Word of God

Psalm 46:1 God is our refuge and strength, a very present [God is always there to help the faithful, although he may allow trials to teach us important lessons, even during those trials he is there helping us to overcome] help in trouble.

Those who live by the righteous Word of God need never fear, for they shall be raised to eternal life on their day

46:2 Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; 46:3 Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah.

There is a river of the Living Waters [the Holy Spirit] of eternal life for those who love and live by every Word of God

46:4 There is a river [of Living Waters of the Holy Spirit], the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High (John 7:37-39, Rev 22:1, 22:17).

Through his holy Spirit God dwelt in his physical temple in Jerusalem and through his Spirit God dwells within his faithful

46:5 God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall help her [God the Father will send Messiah the Christ to save his people], and that right early [quickly] .

During the tribulation the nations will rage, but Jesus Christ [Hebrew:  Yeshua Mashiach] will come to deliver God’s faithful and destroy evil from off the earth

46:6 The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved: he uttered his voice, the earth melted.  46:7 The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.  46:8 Come, behold the works of the LORD, what desolations he hath made [destroying the wicked] in the earth.

Our Mighty One will destroy war and the implements of war to bring peace to the earth

46:9 He maketh wars to cease unto the end of the earth; he breaketh the bow, and cutteth the spear in sunder; he burneth the chariot in the fire.

God the Father and Jesus Christ will be exalted over all the earth

46:10 Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.

Why should we fear anything, even death?  God the Father and Jesus Christ the LORD of hosts [armies] will deliver all God’s faithful who trust in God and live by every Word of God

46:11 The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.


Psalm 47

Let us greatly rejoice over God’s plan of spiritual eternal salvation and the coming of Christ to deliver his faithful, destroy all wickedness and rule all nations; teaching all people the way to eternal life in peace with God and man

Psalm 47:1 O clap your hands, all ye people; shout unto God with the voice of triumph.  47:2 For the LORD most high is terrible [powerful and awesome]; he is a great King over all the earth.

47:3 He shall subdue the people under us [the resurrected bride will rule the nations with him], and the nations under our feet.  

God distributed the physical promised land to physical Israel and he will distribute the nations and kingdoms of the earth to spiritual Israel; the faithful collective bride of Christ

47:4 He shall choose our inheritance for us, the excellency of Jacob [Israel; physical and spiritual]  whom he loved. Selah.

Messiah will come to resurrect his faithful with shouting and the blast of the seventh trumpet (Rev 10:7, 11:15); and after the Wedding Feast he shall come WITH his bride (Jude 1:14) to destroy wickedness and rule all nations in the righteousness of every Word of God

47:5 God is gone up with a shout, the LORD with the sound of a trumpet.

Let everything that has breath, rejoice at the coming of the righteousness of God to the earth!

47:6 Sing praises to God, sing praises: sing praises unto our King, sing praises. 47:7 For God is the King of all the earth: sing ye praises with understanding. 47:8 God reigneth over the heathen: God sitteth upon the throne of his holiness.

The nations of Israel will continue to live in the lands they have today, but when Messiah is exalted as King of kings; the leaders and representative populations of all the nations of Israel shall be gathered to their ancient physical promised land to live in the presence of their king David and in the presence of Messiah the King of kings

47:9 The princes of the people are gathered together, even the people of the God of Abraham: for the shields of the earth belong unto God: he is greatly exalted.
