Preparing the Way of the Lord

Psalms 50

Psalm 50

Psalm 50:1 The mighty God, even the LORD, hath spoken, and called [to everyone on the earth all day long] the earth from the rising of the sun unto the going down thereof.

Jesus Christ the Messiah will come to Jerusalem which he will enter on  the foal of a donkey from the Mount of Olives to become King of kings bringing peace to all nations as the prophets have said. Then the glory of Messiah will shine forth from the physical Jerusalem until the glory of God the Father also shines forth from the spiritual New Jerusalem

50:2 Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God hath shined.

Messiah the Christ who is also the very Creator God who was made flesh to die for and redeem repentant humanity from bondage to Satan and sin: will resurrect the godly dead, delivering all those who have lived by every Word of God to life eternal; and he will destroy the armies of the wicked.  

When he comes he will not keep silent, he will powerfully rebuke all sin and he will teach all humanity to live by every Word of God the Father. 

50:3 Our God shall come, and shall not keep silence: a fire shall devour before him, and it shall be very tempestuous round about him.  

Messiah the Christ will come from the heavens above, to judge the nations with the justice and wisdom of every Word of God the Father

50:4 He shall call to the heavens from above, and to the earth, that he may judge his people.

The chosen overcomers will be resurrected to spirit who have entered the New Covenant trough sincere repentance and the application of the sacrifice of the Lamb of God

50:5 Gather my saints together unto me; those that have made a covenant with me by sacrifice.  50:6 And the heavens [all the holy angels] shall declare his righteousness: for God is judge himself. Selah.

God testifies against physical and spiritual Israel because of their need for sacrifices to cover their continual sins; for all things belong to God and he desires that we obey him so that we would have no need of sacrifice.  

In verse 8 the word “reprove” is properly translated “justify”  Strong’s lexicon H3198; verse 8 meaning “I will testify against thee – and I will NOT justify thee for all your sacrifices because you remain in sin.”

50:7 Hear, O my people, and I will speak; O Israel, and I will testify against thee: I am God, even thy God.  50:8 I will not [God says “I will testify against thee – and I will NOT justify thee for all your sacrifices because you remain in sin.”]  reprove [properly “justify” Strong’s lexicon H3198] thee for thy sacrifices or thy burnt offerings, to have been continually before me.

God does not want our sacrifices for our sins, rather God wants us to STOP sinning

50:9 I will take no bullock out of thy house, nor he goats out of thy folds.  50:10 For every beast of the forest is mine, and the cattle upon a thousand hills.  50:11 I know all the fowls of the mountains: and the wild beasts of the field are mine.  50:12 If I were hungry, I would not tell thee: for the world is mine, and the fulness thereof.  50:13 Will I [do I want to receive your sacrifices?] eat the flesh of bulls, or drink the blood of goats?

Trust in God and sin not:  Offering many sacrifices for not living by every Word of God without any real repentance, is meaningless and is NOT acceptable to God

50:14 Offer unto God thanksgiving; and pay thy vows [including keeping our baptismal commitment to live by every Word of God] unto the most High:

50:15 And call upon me [trust in God to deliver his faithful] in the day of trouble: [God promises that he will deliver his faithful from death itself in a resurrection, and the dead raised to life will rejoice greatly] I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me.

God will judge the wicked [especially religious leaders and teachers] who live by their own ways and refuse to live by every Word of God.  

How is it and by what right do these false teachers claim to teach the Word of God, seeing that they despise to live by every Word of God and instead teach their own false traditions as if they were of God when they are an abomination to God?

50:16 But unto the wicked God saith, What hast thou to do to declare my statutes, or that thou shouldest take my covenant in thy mouth?  50:17 Seeing thou hatest instruction, and casteth my words behind thee.

Wicked false teachers teach the brethren to idolize false leaders and corporate entities above the Word of God, so that they might profit

50:18 When thou sawest a thief, then thou consentedst with him, and hast been partaker with adulterers.  50:19 Thou givest thy mouth to evil [to teach idolatry and many things contrary to the Word of God], and thy tongue frameth [teaches deceits] deceit.

The wicked speak evil of the righteous, even against the godly in their own families

50:20 Thou sittest and speakest against thy brother; thou slanderest thine own mother’s son.

Because God was patient and did not immediately rebuke the wicked, they thought themselves godly in their wickedness.  That time of patient forbearance is now past and the wicked shall be thoroughly corrected in the fiery furnace of great tribulation

50:21 These things hast thou done, and I kept silence; thou thoughtest that I was altogether such an one as thyself: but I will reprove thee, and set them in order before thine eyes.

God calls today’s elders and religious leaders and teachers of the New Covenant to sincerely repent and to teach and live by every Word of God

50:22 Now consider this, ye that forget God, lest I tear you in pieces, and there be none to deliver. 50:23 Whoso offereth praise glorifieth me: and to him that ordereth his conversation [conduct] aright [to live by every Word of God] will I shew the salvation of God.
