Announcements: Today is the fourth Sabbath after the Wave Offering.
This article concludes the studies through the book of Psalms which may be found at the Wisdom Books Category link.
Beginning tomorrow and leading up to Pentecost a series of extensive articles on the Fruits and Gifts of the Holy Spirit is scheduled. When I say extensive I mean an average of over nine thousand words per article and a separate article on almost all of the Fruits and Gifts of God’s Spirit presented every day from now on, up to the Pentecost articles.
These studies are a collaborative effort by Constance and myself.
The series began earlier with articles on the Soul and the fruit of Agape Love and will now continue with daily articles concluding near Pentecost. To review the first two articles please visit the Holy Spirit Category at this link.
This pre-Pentecost series is more solid doctrine on God’s Holy Spirit than most brethren receive in decades and I realize that it will be a very heavy study, therefore i will go slow for a while in Acts to provide plenty of catch up time.
The time has come to prepare the bride, for the time is close at hand and the bridegroom is ready to come for his wife!
Let the bride awake, arise and prepare herself, for the table of the LORD is being set with the solid meat of sound doctrine so that she might make herself ready by removing every spot and blemish of sin through internalizing every Word of her Beloved Husband and His Father in heaven!
If she is not ready her Husband will not wait for her, but will leave her standing alone and ashamed while he tales those who are ready to the Marriage of the Lamb. May the brethren be made ready by zealously, enthusiastically; LEARNING, INTERNALIZING and LIVING by EVERY WORD of God!
A song of praise to God and Messiah for making all things and for the deliverance of men from Satan, sin, death and the grave to eternal salvation. Let every person and every being praise the Mighty God of Jacob, forever and forever, Amen!
Psalm 148:1 Praise ye the LORD. Praise ye the LORD from the heavens: praise him in the heights.
148:2 Praise ye him, all his angels: praise ye him, all his hosts. 148:3 Praise ye him, sun and moon: praise him, all ye stars of light. 148:4 Praise him, ye heavens of heavens, and ye waters that be above the heavens.
God created all things and is worthy of praise and great glory!
148:5 Let them praise the name of the LORD: for he commanded, and they were created. 148:6 He hath also stablished them for ever and ever: he hath made a decree which shall not pass. 148:7 Praise the LORD from the earth, ye dragons [wild beasts], and all deeps [creatures in the sea]:
All things will be brought into subjection and under control by God the Almighty!
148:8 Fire, and hail; snow, and vapours; stormy wind fulfilling his word: 148:9 Mountains, and all hills; fruitful trees, and all cedars: 148:10 Beasts, and all cattle; creeping things, and flying fowl:
All men will be humbled and offered the gift of Eternal Salvation, and they shall praise the God of their Salvation forever and forever, Amen!
148:11 Kings of the earth, and all people; princes, and all judges of the earth: 148:12 Both young men, and maidens; old men, and children: 148:13 Let them praise the name of the LORD: for his name alone is excellent; his glory is above the earth and heaven.
148:14 He also exalteth the horn [life and strength] of his people, the praise of all his saints [the saints consist of every person who lives by every Word of God]; even of the children of [all nations will be grafted into the New Covenant spiritual Israel] Israel, a people [New Covenant spiritual Israel (Jer 31:31) will be a people near unto God and the Word of God will be written in their minds and on their hearts] near unto him. Praise ye the LORD.
At the coming of Messiah the Christ, the resurrected saints will sing a new song of rejoicing in the deliverance of the Mighty Saviour.
Psalm 149:1 Praise ye the LORD. Sing unto the LORD a new song, and his praise in the congregation of saints.
Just as Israel rejoiced when they came up out of the Red Sea and saw their pursuers destroyed, the saints of spiritual Israel will break out in song and will dance and shout in great rejoicing when the Saviour comes and they are resurrected and delivered from the bondage of death and the grave!
149:2 Let Israel rejoice in him that made him: let the children of Zion be joyful in their King. 149:3 Let them praise his name in the dance: let them sing praises unto him with the timbrel and harp.
The Eternal will save his sincerely repentant people and will give the gift of eternal salvation to those who are meek and teachable before God the Great, the Almighty!
149:4 For the LORD taketh pleasure in his people: he will beautify the meek with salvation.
When Messiah comes with deliverance the resurrected saints will rejoice day and night for their deliverance from bondage to Satan, sin and death.
149:5 Let the saints be joyful in glory: let them sing aloud upon their beds.
The resurrected servants of God will be full of the TRUTH of every Word of God, and the sword of truth will continually be in their mouths to destroy all wickedness and sin from off the earth!
149:6 Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two-edged sword in their hand;
Messiah the Christ and all his resurrected saints – the bride of the New Covenant – will come to rule all nations with the truth and righteousness of every Word of God and will correct the unrepentant and cleanse the earth of wickedness and sin.
149:7 To execute vengeance upon the heathen [the wicked], and punishments upon the [upon unrepentant wicked people] people;
The king of wickedness is Satan and his kings are his spirit followers who have enslaved the nations; they will be bound and imprisoned for one thousand years and will then be defeated one last time and judged to destruction. See the Fall Festivals studies.
149:8 To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron;
The resurrected saints will have the honour, with Christ; of executing the judgment of God and destroying Satan and his demonic followers on the Fast of Atonement.
149:9 To execute upon them the judgment written: this honour have all his saints. Praise ye the LORD.
God our Maker the God of our Salvation will save humanity from bondage to Satan, demons, sin, sorrows, suffering and death to give the gift of eternal life to those who live by every Word of God.
Then as pictured by The Feast of The Eighth Day, humanity will inherit the entire universe and will go forward in peace and unity with God for everlasting eternity!
Praise God forever and forever, for all that he does for the sins of men!
Psalm 150:1 Praise ye the LORD. Praise God in his sanctuary: praise him in the firmament of his power. 150:2 Praise him for his mighty acts: praise him according to his excellent greatness. 150:3 Praise him with the sound of the trumpet: praise him with the psaltery and harp. 150:4 Praise him with the timbrel and dance: praise him with stringed instruments and organs. 150:5 Praise him upon the loud cymbals: praise him upon the high sounding cymbals. 150:6 Let every thing that hath breath praise the LORD. Praise ye the LORD.
