Preparing the Way of the Lord

Psalms 82 – 84

Psalm 82

May the people be like God the Just Judge in all their judgments and doings

Psalm 82:1 God standeth in the congregation of the mighty; he judgeth among the gods [mighty ones].

How long will the leaders of today’s physical and spiritual Israel judge unjustly and permit living contrary to the Word of God?

82:2 How long will ye judge unjustly, and accept the persons of the wicked? Selah.

Godly judges defend the oppressed from the wicked and execute righteous judgments according to every Word of God.

82:3 Defend the poor and fatherless [godly leaders give justice to the oppressed]: do justice to the afflicted and needy. 82:4 Deliver the poor and needy: rid them out of the hand of the wicked.

Today’s judges in both physical and spiritual Israel are ignorant of true godly justice

82:5 They know not, neither will they understand; they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of [justice on the earth] the earth are out of course.

God has called out some to become the spiritual children of God (Romans 8:15), yet the errant in the spiritual Ekklesia shall die without hope like all flesh; unless we turn to live by every Word of God in sincere repentance.

82:6 I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High.  82:7 But ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes.

When he comes, Messiah and those with him will judge the earth in the righteousness of every Word of God.

82:8 Arise, O God, judge the earth: for thou shalt inherit all nations.

 

Psalm 83

A prophecy of the latter days when the nations of Europe, Turkey, Jordan, Syria, Lebanon and the Arab States will confederate against the nations of Judah and Israel.  

Psalm 83:1 Keep not thou silence, O God: hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God.

David speaks about the nations seeking to destroy the nations of Israel, which is a type of the proud lifting themselves up against God to reject the Word of God and live according to their own false ways and persecute God’s faithful.

83:2 For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head. 83:3 They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden [protected] ones.

83:4 They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance [this as an allegory that the wicked also seek to destroy God’s faithful].

83:5 For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee:

83:6 The tabernacles of Edom [Turkey], and the Ishmaelites [true Arabs, sons of Ishmael; sons of Abraham and Agar]; of Moab [Jordan today], and the Hagarenes [Arabs who are sons of Agar by another than Abraham, and also not the sons of Ishmael];

83:7 Geba [Lebanon], and Ammon [Jordan today], and Amalek [a tribe of the Turks]; the Philistines [Gaza] with the inhabitants of Tyre [Lebanon];

83:8 Assur [Germany, Austria, Hungary] also is joined with them: they have holpen the children of Lot [the New Europe will help modern Jordan; Ammon and Moab].

Selah.

David prophesies that these nations who attack Judah and Israel in these latter days will be corrected in their turn  [by the men of the east]

83:9 Do unto them as unto the Midianites; as to Sisera, as to Jabin, [whose armies were slaughtered (Judges 4)] at the brook of Kison:  83:10 Which perished at Endor: they became as dung for the earth.  83:11 Make their nobles like Oreb, and like Zeeb: yea, all their princes as Zebah (Judges 8), and as Zalmunna:

God will drive away the attackers who delight in destroying; like the wind drives stubble before it and wheels roll away

83:12 Who said, Let us take to ourselves the houses of God in possession. 83:13 O my God, make them like a wheel; as the stubble before the wind.

God will destroy the armies of the New Europe and her Turkish, Jordanian, Lebanese, Syrian  and Arab allies, with armies from the east and consume them like a raging fire consumes its fuel.

83:14 As the fire burneth a wood, and as the flame setteth the mountains on fire;

David calls on God to correct the nations of the New Europe Babylon the Great and her Turkish, Jordanian, Lebanese Syrian and Arab allies, to humble them and turn them to God

83:15 So persecute them with thy tempest, and make them afraid with thy storm.  83:16 Fill their faces with shame [humble them]; that they may seek thy name, O LORD.

83:17 Let them [the wicked] be confounded and troubled for ever; yea, let them be put to shame, and perish:

83:18 That [all] men may know that thou, whose name alone is JEHOVAH [YHVH], art the most high over all the earth.

 

Psalm 84

The heart, mind and spirit of the righteous man longs for the things of God, he longs to be in the presence of God and longs to learn about the precious holy Word of God

Psalm 84:1 How amiable are thy tabernacles, O LORD of hosts!  84:2 My soul longeth, yea, even fainteth for the courts [to be in the presence] of the LORD: my heart and my flesh crieth out for the living God.

Like wondering birds, man cannot find his way to life and peace; man needs God to show him the path to peace and life.

84:3 Yea, the sparrow hath found an house, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young, even thine altars, O LORD of hosts, my King, and my God.

Those who dwell in the presence of God will sing his praises forever; because of the awesome wonder and glorious wisdom of his ways.

84:4 Blessed are they that dwell in thy house: they will be still praising thee. Selah.

Those who are faithful to put their trust in God to live by his Word will be greatly blessed for they shall live forever through the wisdom and Word of God.

84:5 Blessed is the man whose strength is in thee; in whose heart are the ways of them.

84:6 Who passing through the valley of Baca [the valley of Bracha on the border of the promised land at the Jordan River near Jericho, a type of going down into death and then rising up to a Promised Land of eternal life on the other side of the grave] make it a well; the rain also filleth the pools.

Those who put their trust in God may have trials in this life, but they shall be resurrected to strength and eternal life if they keep on living by every Word of God.

84:7 They go from strength to strength, every one of them in Zion appeareth before God.

God will look upon the sincerely repentant to bless them, and God will hear the prayers of all those who are faithful to live by every Word of God

84:8 O LORD God of hosts, hear my prayer: give ear, O God of Jacob. Selah. 84:9 Behold, O God our shield, and look upon the face of thine anointed.

A day in the presence of God is better than a thousand days far from God.  It is far better to be a humble person in the presence of God, then to have enormous riches and be beloved of men but estranged from God.

84:10 For a day in thy courts [tabernacle – temple courtyards]  is better than a thousand. I had rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God, than to dwell in the tents of wickedness.

84:11 For the LORD God is a sun [light of wisdom] and shield [a defense and protector]: the LORD will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.

84:12 O LORD of hosts, blessed is the man that trusteth in thee.
