AN EXPOSITION OF PSALM 102:11-22 – Part 4


PSALM 102:13 – Thou shalt arise, and have mercy upon Zion: for the time to favour her, yea, the set time, is come.

We covered verse 13 in Part 3, showing a future set time when, after a period of great tribulation, the Messiah of Israel would return and show her great favor, arising as the Sun of righteousness, with merciful spiritual healing in his wings, under which the people of Israel would grow up as favored calves of his stall.

Malachi 4:1-3 – For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the Lord of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch. [2] But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall. [3] And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the Lord of hosts.

PSALM 102:14 – For thy servants take pleasure in her stones, and favour the dust thereof.

In this millennial period of “growing up as calves of the stall,” God’s people will love the stones that are used in the great rebuilding of the millennial temple and the restored city of Jerusalem. It will make the temple of Solomon as a dim light by comparison, and the Lord of Israel will have it as his dwelling place. They will love the very dust of the ground upon which they stand in the land grant promised by God to Abraham through Isaac and Jacob. Their territory will extend northward to Hamath in Syria, west to the Mediterranean, south to Kadesh, and east to the Euphrates.

Genesis 15:18 – In the same day the Lord made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates:

Ezekiel 47:17 – And the border from the sea shall be Hazar-enan, the border of Damascus, and the north northward, and the border of Hamath. And this is the north side.

Ezekiel 47:19 – And the south side southward, from Tamar even to the waters of strife in Kadesh, the river to the great sea. And this is the south side southward.

The city limits of Jerusalem will stretch into Jordan, and his sanctuary will be in the midst of the complex.

Ezekiel 40:2 – In the visions of God brought he me into the land of Israel, and set me upon a very high mountain, by which was as the frame of a city on the south.

Ezekiel 48:35 – It was round about eighteen thousand measures: and the name of the city from that day shall be, The Lord is there.

Ezekiel 37:28 – And the heathen shall know that I the Lord do sanctify Israel, when my sanctuary shall be in the midst of them for evermore.

Israel will rebuild the great Jerusalem complex and temple according to God’s instructions found in Ezekiel 40 to 48. When the temple is completed the Messiah will enter it in the radiance of the Shechinah Glory of God.

Ezekiel 43:4-7 – And the glory of the Lord came into the house by the way of the gate whose prospect is toward the east. [5] So the spirit took me up, and brought me into the inner court; and, behold, the glory of the Lord filled the house. [6] And I heard him speaking unto me out of the house; and the man stood by me. [7] And he said unto me, Son of man, the place of my throne, and the place of the soles of my feet, where I will dwell in the midst of the children of Israel for ever, and my holy name, shall the house of Israel no more defile, neither they, nor their kings, by their whoredom, nor by the carcases of their kings in their high places.

He will finally rule over the city that at first received him and then rejected him.

Micah 5:2 – But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.

Luke 19:35-41 – And they brought him to Jesus: and they cast their garments upon the colt, and they set Jesus thereon. [36] And as he went, they spread their clothes in the way. [37] And when he was come nigh, even now at the descent of the mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works that they had seen; [38] Saying, Blessed be the King that cometh in the name of the Lord: peace in heaven, and glory in the highest. [39] And some of the Pharisees from among the multitude said unto him, Master, rebuke thy disciples. [40] And he answered and said unto them, I tell you that, if these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out. [41] And when he was come near, he beheld the city, and wept over it,

On his Second Advent he will return as King with his brethren, and they will receive him.

Micah 5:3 – Therefore will he give them up, until the time that she which travaileth hath brought forth: then the remnant of his brethren shall return unto the children of Israel.

On his First Advent he gave them up, and Israel will go through a time of great travail until he is brought forth at his Second Advent accompanied by his brethren.

Matthew 23:37-39 – O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not! [38] Behold, your house is left unto you desolate. [39] For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.

He will gather all his brethren in heaven from one end of it to the other, and they will return with him.

Matthew 24:31 – And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

Jude 1:14 – And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints,

Luke 21:27 – And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.

Revelation 1:7 – Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.

AN EXPOSITION OF PSALM 102:11-22 – Part 5


Psalm 102:15 – So the heathen shall fear the name of the Lord, and all the kings of the earth thy glory.

There is an ever decreasing fear of the name of the Lord among the nations of the world because many believe he does not exist. Over the past 50 years this lack of fear in his name has been growing among all of mankind. Psalm 2 indicated this would be the case in the last days.

Psalm 2:1-3 – Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? [2] The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed, saying, [3] Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.

The heathen today have no fear of God, and indeed do set themselves against him and his anointed Son, with a fervent desire to remove all traces of him in any form of governmental structure or action. But God sits today in heaven laughing at their attempt, knowing it would come in the last days, and he will change their attitude by the great tribulation he is about to bring on them, such that the heathen will fear him during the reign of his returned Son.

Psalm 2:4,5 – He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision. [5] Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.

Psalm 102:15 – So the heathen shall fear the name of the Lord, and all the kings of the earth thy glory.

They will see the glory of God revealed in his Son as he returns to rule and reign for a thousand years, and they will repeat it to their descendents for a thousand years.

Luke 21:25-27 – And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; [26] Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. [27] And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.

God’s Son will sit in Jerusalem and rule throughout the millennium.

Psalm 2:6-12 – Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion. [7] I will declare the decree: the Lord hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee. [8] Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession. [9] Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel. [10] Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth. [11] Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling. [12] Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.

The Lion of Judah will establish Israel in the midst of the Gentile nations as a lion among the weaker beasts in a forest, and any that would dare to stand against her will be crushed to powder. All of Israel’s enemies will be cut off.

Micah 5:8,9 – And the remnant of Jacob shall be among the Gentiles in the midst of many people as a lion among the beasts of the forest, as a young lion among the flocks of sheep: who, if he go through, both treadeth down, and teareth in pieces, and none can deliver. [9] Thine hand shall be lifted up upon thine adversaries, and all thine enemies shall be cut off.

Israel will be established as the highest of all mountains above a world of mountains, symbolized as nations by the prophet Isaiah, and Israel will walk in the light of the Lord.

Isaiah 2:1-5 – The word that Isaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem. [2] And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the Lord's house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it. [3] And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem. [4] And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more. [5] O house of Jacob, come ye, and let us walk in the light of the Lord.

Psalm 102:15 – So the heathen shall fear the name of the Lord, and all the kings of the earth thy glory.

Ezekiel 39:21,22 – And I will set my glory among the heathen, and all the heathen shall see my judgment that I have executed, and my hand that I have laid upon them. [22] So the house of Israel shall know that I am the Lord their God from that day and forward.

Zechariah 14:9 – And the Lord shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one Lord, and his name one.

AN EXPOSITION OF PSALM 102:11-22 – Part 6


Psalm 102:16 – When the Lord shall build up Zion, he shall appear in his glory.

There is coming a time, following a time of great horror known as the period of great tribulation, when the Lord will return and build up Jerusalem and all of Israel. He will first appear in his glory at his Second Advent, and immediately thereafter the rebuilding of Zion will be initiated.  He will also appear again in his glory when the building of the millennial temple is finished.

Luke 21:25-28 – And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; [26] Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. [27] And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. [28] And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.

Ezekiel 43:1-5 – Afterward he brought me to the gate, even the gate that looketh toward the east: [2] And, behold, the glory of the God of Israel came from the way of the east: and his voice was like a noise of many waters: and the earth shined with his glory. [3] And it was according to the appearance of the vision which I saw, even according to the vision that I saw when I came to destroy the city: and the visions were like the vision that I saw by the river Chebar; and I fell upon my face. [4] And the glory of the Lord came into the house by the way of the gate whose prospect is toward the east. [5] So the spirit took me up, and brought me into the inner court; and, behold, the glory of the Lord filled the house.

Jesus gave a preview of future coming attractions of his Second Advent during his First Advent.  He let three of his disciples have a preview of how he would appear at the Second Advent during his First Advent in Matthew 16:27 to 17:3, to which John referred to in his Gospel.

Matthew 16:27 to 17:2 – For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works. [28] Verily I say unto you, There be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom. [1] And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart, [2] And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light. [3] And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with him.

John 1:14 – And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

Psalm 102:16 – When the Lord shall build up Zion, he shall appear in his glory.

Zechariah 6:12,13 – And speak unto him, saying, Thus speaketh the Lord of hosts, saying, Behold the man whose name is The BRANCH; and he shall grow up out of his place, and he shall build the temple of the Lord: [13] Even he shall build the temple of the Lord; and he shall bear the glory, and shall sit and rule upon his throne; and he shall be a priest upon his throne: and the counsel of peace shall be between them both.

Christ will fill both of the high offices of Israel – High Priest and King.

Amos 9:11-15 – In that day will I raise up the tabernacle of David that is fallen, and close up the breaches thereof; and I will raise up his ruins, and I will build it as in the days of old: [12] That they may possess the remnant of Edom, and of all the heathen, which are called by my name, saith the Lord that doeth this. [13] Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that the plowman shall overtake the reaper, and the treader of grapes him that soweth seed; and the mountains shall drop sweet wine, and all the hills shall melt. [14] And I will bring again the captivity of my people of Israel, and they shall build the waste cities, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and drink the wine thereof; they shall also make gardens, and eat the fruit of them. [15] And I will plant them upon their land, and they shall no more be pulled up out of their land which I have given them, saith the Lord thy God.

Isaiah 65:21-23 – And they shall build houses, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and eat the fruit of them. [22] They shall not build, and another inhabit; they shall not plant, and another eat: for as the days of a tree are the days of my people, and mine elect shall long enjoy the work of their hands. [23] They shall not labour in vain, nor bring forth for trouble; for they are the seed of the blessed of the Lord, and their offspring with them.

Isaiah 61:4-6 – And they shall build the old wastes, they shall raise up the former desolations, and they shall repair the waste cities, the desolations of many generations. [5] And strangers shall stand and feed your flocks, and the sons of the alien shall be your plowmen and your vinedressers. [6] But ye shall be named the Priests of the Lord: men shall call you the Ministers of our God: ye shall eat the riches of the Gentiles, and in their glory shall ye boast yourselves.

Isaiah 66:10-14 – Rejoice ye with Jerusalem, and be glad with her, all ye that love her: rejoice for joy with her, all ye that mourn for her: [11] That ye may suck, and be satisfied with the breasts of her consolations; that ye may milk out, and be delighted with the abundance of her glory. [12] For thus saith the Lord, Behold, I will extend peace to her like a river, and the glory of the Gentiles like a flowing stream: then shall ye suck, ye shall be borne upon her sides, and be dandled upon her knees. [13] As one whom his mother comforteth, so will I comfort you; and ye shall be comforted in Jerusalem. [14] And when ye see this, your heart shall rejoice, and your bones shall flourish like an herb: and the hand of the Lord shall be known toward his servants, and his indignation toward his enemies.

Israel’s 2000 years of shame will be behind her, and she will receive the double blessing of the Lord for it.

Isaiah 61:7-9 – For your shame ye shall have double; and for confusion they shall rejoice in their portion: therefore in their land they shall possess the double: everlasting joy shall be unto them. [8] For I the Lord love judgment, I hate robbery for burnt offering; and I will direct their work in truth, and I will make an everlasting covenant with them. [9] And their seed shall be known among the Gentiles, and their offspring among the people: all that see them shall acknowledge them, that they are the seed which the Lord hath blessed.

AN EXPOSITION OF PSALM 102 – Part 7


Psalm 102:17 – He will regard the prayer of the destitute, and not despise their prayer.

The Hebrew word translated “destitute” means “the poor,” inferring they are destitute in something, which causes them to be classified as poor.  It comes from the primary root “arar,” which means to break, to lift up, to make bare.  In this particular context it refers to men and women who have been broken to humility before God, who have broken hearts and contrite spirits, as those who see themselves poor in spirit before God, and therefore needing to be lifted up.   The types of people that would fit into this characteristic are found in the following Psalms.

Psalm 34:18 – The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.

Psalm 51:17 – The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.

And this is also the characteristic of the persons found in the first beatitude Christ gave to his disciples.

Matthew 5:1-3 – And seeing the multitudes, he went up into a mountain: and when he was set, his disciples came unto him: [2] And he opened his mouth, and taught them, saying, [3] Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

There is the characteristic of a helpless child who has to depend on a provider to be kept physically alive.  In the case in point in refers to one who trusts in Christ alone to provide it with eternal spiritual life.

Luke 18:17 – Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child shall in no wise enter therein.

Psalm 102:17 – He will regard the prayer of the destitute, and not despise their prayer.

The prayer of the Publican was that of one destitute of the ability to justify himself, while the prayer of the Pharisee was that of one rich in own ability to justify himself.

Luke 18:9-14 – And he spake this parable unto certain which trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and despised others: [10] Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican. [11] The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican. [12] I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess. [13] And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner. [14] I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.

The Lord regarded the prayer of the destitute Publican, but despised the prayer of the Pharisee who exalted himself.  The Pharisees considered themselves to be rich in spirit, and would not humble themselves to come to a carpenter from the dirty little town of Nazareth.  They would not accept the scriptures that taught of Messiah, but developed their own traditions of what he would be like, and what he would do.  So they did not come to him for the salvation of their souls.  They simply would not honor him as the Son of God.

John 5:39-41 – Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. [40] And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life. [41] I receive not honour from men.

They did not possess the kingdom of heaven because they were not poor in spirit toward God, thinking their own righteousness of spirit was rich enough to justify then before God.

Matthew 5:3 – Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

It has always been the same, the self righteous do not see themselves as poor in spirit, but the unrighteous see they must be imputed his righteousness by grace to be rich toward God through Jesus.  There is no salvation of the soul other than by calling on the name of Jesus to save you.

Acts 4:12 – Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

Romans 10:13 – For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

Romans 10:17 – So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

Romans 10:9-11 – That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. [10] For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. [11] For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.

Psalm 102:17 – He will regard the prayer of the destitute, and not despise their prayer.

Matthew 5:3 – Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

AN EXPOSITION OF PSALM 102 – Part 8


PSALM 102:17,18 – He will regard the prayer of the destitute, and not despise their prayer. [18] This shall be written for the generation to come: and the people which shall be created shall praise the Lord.

As we established in Part 7, God has always regarded the prayer of those who recognized themselves as being spiritually desolate before him, and has not despised the prayer of such, answering their requests favorably. It has been the practice of God to favorably answer the prayer of all who would call upon his name believing the promise he made in the seed of Genesis 3:15.

Genesis 3:15 – And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and HER SEED; IT shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise HIS heel.

The promised seed to come was to have a body with a heel, and that heel was to suffer great affliction as he stepped on the serpent’s head to crush the power it had gained over fallen man.

Adam and Eve naturally thought that their first seed was to be the one who would crush the power of the serpent over them, and were anxious to see how Cain would do it, but they were sadly disappointed when God rejected Cain as the seed, not accepting his offering.

Genesis 4:1,5 – And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the Lord. [5] But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect. And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell.

And after Cain killed Abel, Adam and Eve were acutely aware that neither Cain nor Abel could be the seed God would use to deliver them from the power of the Devil. So Eve waited for another seed to come, and that seed was Seth.

Genesis 4:25 – And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called his name Seth: For God, said she, hath appointed me ANOTHER SEED instead of Abel, whom Cain slew.

At this point Seth was thought to be the promised seed who would deliver them from the power of Satan, but something then happen to cause them to realize, for the first time, the birth of the promised seed might be in the distant future – Seth had a son – and what would they naturally have done, not knowing which one of them was the promised seed, or if was to be a future seed? You guessed it – they would begin to call upon the name of the Lord until God sent him and revealed him as such.

Genesis 4:26 – And to Seth, to him also there was born a son; and he called his name Enos: then began men to call upon the name of the Lord.

So men and woman have been calling on the name of the Lord regarding the redemptive work of the seed he promised since Adam and will be doing so until the final heavenly kingdom is revealed. The promised seed has always been the Son of man and the Son of God, Jesus Christ.

Hebrews 13:8 – Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.

The promise of Genesis 3:15 was written to generations in the past, the present generation, and generations of the future, which God would CREATE IN THE SEED to do good works by his power and in his name.

Ephesians 2:8-10 – For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: [9] Not of works, lest any man should boast. [10] For we are his workmanship, CREATED IN CHRIST JESUS unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

PSALM 102:18 –This shall be written for the generation to come: and the people which shall be created shall praise the Lord.

Ephesians 1:6,7,12-14 – To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved. [7] In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace; Ephesians 1:12-14 – That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ. [13] In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, [14] Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.

Ephesians 4:30 – And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.

Matthew 28:20 – Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

Ephesians 3:10 – To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God,

I Peter 2:5 – Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.

Psalm 51:17 – The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.

AN EXPOSITION OF PSALM 102 – Part 9


PSALM 102:19 – For he hath looked down from the height of his sanctuary; from heaven did the Lord behold the earth;

The Psalmist in 14:2,3 tells us what he saw when he cast his view down on earth, as does Paul in Roman 3:10,23 and Isaiah in 53:6.

Psalm 14:2,3 – The Lord looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God. [3] They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one.

Romans 3:10 – As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:

Romans 3:23 – For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

Isaiah 53:6 – All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.

God look down and saw mankind imprisoned by Satan in the bondage of sin, under God’s condemnation with a death sentence imposed on them for their inherited sin condition. He has compassion on those who groaned under the weight of their sin and spiritual separation from him because of it.

PSALM 102:19,20 – For he hath looked down from the height of his sanctuary; from heaven did the Lord behold the earth; [20] To hear the groaning of the prisoner; to loose those that are appointed to death;

Hebrews 9:27 – And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:

Job was concerned because God seemed so distant and far away, as one who looked down from heaven and passed judgment on individual men, but the individual had no way of communicating with him as a human. He cried out to God for a daysman, a referee, an umpire who could lay his hand on both God and man, to help man to understand the judgment that was being passed on him.

Job 9:32,33 – For he is not a man, as I am, that I should answer him, and we should come together in judgment. [33] Neither is there any daysman betwixt us, that might lay his hand upon us both.

Jesus came as the daysman between God and man, the messenger from God who was both the Son of God and the Son of man. Jesus came as the interpreter between God and man, and to show his Father’s righteousness in the sinless life he lived in the flesh. Jesus overcame the world and his body was not corrupted by worms in the grave. He showed man God’s righteousness with a promise he would be gracious and imput it to those who asked them to save him from the pit of hell, paying the ransom that delivered them with his own blood and body. Jesus came as the light of life, so that man might receive his light, and be delivered from hell.

Job 33:22-28 – Yea, his soul draweth near unto the grave, and his life to the destroyers. [23] If there be a messenger with him, an interpreter, one among a thousand, to shew unto man his uprightness: [24] Then he is gracious unto him, and saith, Deliver him from going down to the pit: I have found a ransom. [25] His flesh shall be fresher than a child's: he shall return to the days of his youth: [26] He shall pray unto God, and he will be favourable unto him: and he shall see his face with joy: for he will render unto man his righteousness. [27] He looketh upon men, and if any say, I have sinned, and perverted that which was right, and it profited me not; [28] He will deliver his soul from going into the pit, and his life shall see the light.

AN EXPOSITION OF PSALM 102 – Part 10


Psalm 102:19-22 – For he hath looked down from the height of his sanctuary; from heaven did the Lord behold the earth; [20] To hear the groaning of the prisoner; to loose those that are appointed to death; [21] To declare the name of the Lord in Zion, and his praise in Jerusalem; [22] When the people are gathered together, and the kingdoms, to serve the Lord.

God has been looking down from heaven for a very long time across the surface of the earth.  He heard the deep groans of men and women who were prisoners of the Devil, in bondage to sin, and for those who cried out for deliverance he provided the sacrifice of his Son as the redemption price for their deliverance from his eternal condemnation, loosing them from an eternity in the lake of fire.  There is coming a day when all whom he loosed will return with him at his Second Advent, having been judged for rewards in heaven.  The kingdoms of this world will become his kingdoms, and the name of Lord Jesus will be declared as King of kings, and Lord of lords.  His praises will ring out across the earth from Jerusalem, the Zion of God.  All the peoples and kings of the earth will serve him.

Revelation 11:15 – And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.

Zechariah 14:9 – And the Lord shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one Lord, and his name one.

Isaiah 61:3-9 – To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he might be glorified.  [4] And they shall build the old wastes, they shall raise up the former desolations, and they shall repair the waste cities, the desolations of many generations. [5] And strangers shall stand and feed your flocks, and the sons of the alien shall be your plowmen and your vinedressers. [6] But ye shall be named the Priests of the Lord: men shall call you the Ministers of our God: ye shall eat the riches of the Gentiles, and in their glory shall ye boast yourselves.  [7] For your shame ye shall have double; and for confusion they shall rejoice in their portion: therefore in their land they shall possess the double: everlasting joy shall be unto them. [8] For I the Lord love judgment, I hate robbery for burnt offering; and I will direct their work in truth, and I will make an everlasting covenant with them. [9] And their seed shall be known among the Gentiles, and their offspring among the people: all that see them shall acknowledge them, that they are the seed which the Lord hath blessed.

Ezekiel 39:27-29 – When I have brought them again from the people, and gathered them out of their enemies' lands, and am sanctified in them in the sight of many nations; [28] Then shall they know that I am the Lord their God, which caused them to be led into captivity among the heathen: but I have gathered them unto their own land, and have left none of them any more there. [29] Neither will I hide my face any more from them: for I have poured out my spirit upon the house of Israel, saith the Lord God.

Ezekiel 37:21,22 – And say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I will take the children of Israel from among the heathen, whither they be gone, and will gather them on every side, and bring them into their own land: [22] And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king to them all: and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all:

Zechariah 14:16-21 – And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles. [17] And it shall be, that whoso will not come up of all the families of the earth unto Jerusalem to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, even upon them shall be no rain. [18] And if the family of Egypt go not up, and come not, that have no rain; there shall be the plague, wherewith the Lord will smite the heathen that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles. [19] This shall be the punishment of Egypt, and the punishment of all nations that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles.   [20] In that day shall there be upon the bells of the horses, HOLINESS UNTO THE LORD; and the pots in the Lord's house shall be like the bowls before the altar. [21] Yea, every pot in Jerusalem and in Judah shall be holiness unto the Lord of hosts: and all they that sacrifice shall come and take of them, and seethe therein: and in that day there shall be no more the Canaanite in the house of the Lord of hosts.

Genesis 9:24-27 – And Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son had done unto him. [25] And he said, Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren.
