Preparing the Way of the Lord

Psalms 93 – 95

Psalm 93

God the Father rules from heaven and on a soon coming Feast of Pentecost Messiah the Christ will establish the Kingdom of God over all the earth. 

God the Father and the one who gave up his God-hood to become flesh and was resurrected back to his former glory are the present two members of the YHVH family of Elohim.

Psalm 93:1 The LORD [YHVH] reigneth [as God the Father rules from heaven the Son will be King of kings ruling all nations from Jerusalem], he is clothed with majesty; the LORD is clothed with strength, wherewith he hath girded himself: the world also is stablished, that it cannot be moved.

93:2 Thy throne is established of old: thou art from everlasting.

Many waters are an allegory of all nations who will lift up their voice in rejoicing and praise of God when they are delivered from bondage to Satan and sin. 

Revelation 17:15  And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.

Psalm 93:3 The floods have lifted up, O LORD, the floods have lifted up their voice; the floods lift up their waves.

93:4 The LORD on high is mightier than [all peoples] the noise of many waters, yea, than the mighty waves of the sea.

Every Word of God is pure and holy and true 

Romans 7:12  Wherefore the law is holy, and the commandment holy, and just, and good.

God’s people are set apart from worldliness to live by every Word of God. 

John 17:17  Sanctify them [set your people apart from sin]  through thy truth: thy word is truth.

Psalm 93:5 Thy testimonies are very sure [God’s Word is everlasting]: holiness becometh thine house, O LORD, for ever.

 

Psalm 94

Psalm 94 speaks of the actions of the wicked and God’s ultimate deliverance of the repentant. 

When it speaks of wicked people, we must realize that such people are inspired by that ultimate source of evil, Satan the Adversary of God. 

Most wicked people are deceived and being used by that ultimate wicked being who is the one which will ultimately be totally destroyed while the vast majority of evil people will ultimately sincerely repent and be saved. 

We are not to seek our own revenge, it is up to God to make a final judgment.

Psalm 94:1 O Lord God, to whom vengeance belongeth; O God, to whom vengeance belongeth, shew thyself.

Let us call upon our God in sincere repentance; calling on Him for our deliverance.  This speaks of deliverance at any time, but is a specific prophecy of the people calling for Messiah to come and deliver them from their affliction during the tribulation.

94:2 Lift up thyself, thou judge [King of kings and come to the earth to rule in justice] of the earth: render a reward to [correct the proud who live in their own wicked ways] the proud.

94:3 LORD, how long shall the wicked, how long shall the wicked triumph? 94:4 How long shall they utter and speak hard things? and all the workers of iniquity boast themselves? 94:5 They break in pieces thy people, O LORD, and afflict thine heritage. 94:6 They slay the widow and the stranger, and murder the fatherless.

This is about the wicked afflicting the truly faithful of God at all times, but is specifically a prophecy of the tribulation just before the coming of Messiah the Christ to judge [Rule] the earth. 

94:7 Yet they [the wicked will] say, The LORD shall not see, neither shall the God of Jacob regard it [what we do].

God knows the minds of all men and he will chastise the evil doers and will deliver the sincerely repentant who become zealous to live by every Word of God.

94:8 Understand, ye brutish [those who will not live by  God’s Word] among the people: and ye fools, when will ye be wise? 94:9 He that planted [created] the ear, shall he not hear? he that formed the eye, shall he not see [the wicked things we do] ? 94:10 He that chastiseth the heathen [the uncalled wicked], shall not he correct [those God has called out to live by His Word]? he that teacheth man knowledge, shall not he know [the ultimate source of truth and knowledge knows what men do]94:11 The LORD knoweth the thoughts of man, that they are vanity [wickedness bringing death].

Speaking of the people that God chastens by afflicting the flesh to save the spirit, such people are indeed blessed if they accept their chastisement and turn to live by every Word of God their Father.  Those who sincerely repent and turn to the Eternal will be greatly b lessed.

94:12 Blessed is the man whom thou chastenest, O LORD, and teachest him out of thy law; 94:13 That thou mayest give him rest from the days of adversity, until the pit be digged for the wicked. 

Hebrews 12:6 For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth. 12:7 If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not? 12:8 But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons.

When we sincerely repent and turn to the Eternal he will remember us and deliver us.  This is a prophecy about the coming of Messiah to deliver humanity after the trial of affliction that is to come upon all the earth.

Psalm 94:14 For the LORD will not cast off his people [those who love Him enough to follow Him and keep His Word], neither will he forsake his inheritance. 94:15 But judgment [correction] shall [shall bring repentance and godly righteousness] return unto righteousness: and all the upright in heart shall follow it.

It is God the Eternal who shall deliver the sincerely repentant who turn to the righteousness of living by every Word of God

94:16 Who will rise up for me against the evildoers? or who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity? 94:17 Unless the LORD had been my help, my soul had almost dwelt in silence.

When we unintentionally slip, our Maker will deliver us if we acknowledge our sin and call out to him.

94:18 When I said, My foot slippeth; thy mercy, O LORD, held me up.

The zealous people of God find comfort in thinking on and living by every Word of God.

94:19 In the multitude of my thoughts within me thy comforts delight my soul.

God will have nothing to do with iniquity and the unrepentant wicked and neither should the godly except by necessity of living on this earth.

1 Corinthians 5:9  I wrote unto you in an epistle not to company with fornicators: 5:10  Yet not altogether with the fornicators of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or with idolaters; for then must ye needs go out of the world. 5:11  But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolator, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat.

Psalm 94:20 Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with thee, which frameth mischief by a law?

The wicked despise and persecute the godly righteous, but the Eternal delivers the faithful.  This is a prophecy about Messiah delivering the sincerely repentant in the resurrection to spirit at His coming. 

94:21 They [the wicked who will not live by every Word of God] gather themselves together against the soul [life] of the righteous [those who do live by every Word of God], and condemn the innocent blood.

The LORD will defend his people and will raise them up when He comes

94:22 But the LORD is my defence; and my God is the rock of my refuge.

The unrepentant wicked will be cut off

94:23 And he shall bring upon them their own iniquity, and shall cut them off in their own wickedness; yea, the LORD our God shall cut them off.

 

Psalm 95

Psalm 95 is a song of praise and joy over the deliverance of those who have turned in sincere repentance to live by every Word of God.

This song is about standing in the presence of the Eternal, but is also a prophecy about the literal coming of Christ to deliver the people and to rule all nations as King of kings and Lord of all lords.   At that time the ultimate source of evil will be removed for one thousand years and all remaining people will repent, then God’s Spirit will be poured out on all flesh (Joel 2:28). 

After Christ comes and the millennial temple is built, all nations will come into his presence with great rejoicing because he has bound Satan and saved humanity an dis teaching them the Righteousness of the Word of God to eternal salvation.

Psalm 95:1 O come, let us sing unto the LORD: let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation. 95:2 Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms.

Messiah the Christ together with God the Father is above all gods including that would be god Satan himself. 

The greatness of God

95:3 For the LORD is a great God, and a great King above all gods. 95:4 In his hand [control] are the deep places of the earth: the strength of the hills is his also. 95:5 The sea is his, and he made it: and his hands formed the dry land.

If we will only hear and live by every Word of God we shall receive God’s deliverance and inherit all good things.

95:6 O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the LORD our maker. 95:7 For he is our God; and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand. To day if ye will hear his voice,

Those who resist the Word of God, refusing to obey and follow God, and insist in doing what seems right in their own eyes; will not enter into the Promised Land of eternal life. 

95:8 Harden not your heart, as in the provocation, and as in the day of temptation in the wilderness: 95:9 When your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my work. 95:10 Forty years long was I grieved with this generation, and said, It is a people that do err in their heart, and they have not known my ways: 95:11 Unto whom I sware in my wrath that they should not enter into my rest.
