  • Psalm Ninety Nine

    The Lord is on his throne,
    the people of the earth tremble,
    He sits between the cherubim,
    and we await His judgment.
    The Lord rules the holy city,
    He is above all others.
    Let the whole earth praise Your name,
    for You are mighty and just and holy.

    Because You are a wise king,
    You love judgment, You love fairness,
    Your strength and righteousness are just.
    We will praise You, we will worship Your holy name.
    Moses and Aaron stand with You now,
    Samuel and others are there with You.
    They called Your name and You answered.
    Your word of salvation is true.

    Your voice came from the pillar of cloud,
    They kept the ordinances You gave them.
    You answered them, oh God, and forgave them their sins,
    You took vengeance on their idols and their foolishness.
    Gather, all you who love the Lord, our God.
    Praise Him above all others, raise up His name with thanksgiving.
    Worship Him at His holy city, before His throne,
    for the Lord, our God, is pure and holy.


    Prayers without ceasing

    God has taken his place as our judge, he is seated in the holy place ready to give his judgments to the world. Are we ready? Have we accepted his mercy toward us, or will he find us at fault?

    The Sons of Korath proclaim here that when God is ready to judge the earth, it will be with mercy and righteousness. They tell the people where mortal leaders could not provide a perfect example, God will provide the salvation through his promised Messiah.

    The ark of the covenant, in case you didn't know, was modeled after the images sent down to man by God. The top of the ark was the Mercy Seat, where the priest poured the sacrificial blood of animals on the high holy day. His act was a metaphor for man atoning for sin in heaven.

    When we are before God in heaven, we will be offering the shed blood of Jesus as our atonement. If God looks at us and sees his blood, we are absolved of all sin. We are admitted to heaven where we will live with God for all eternity. We will have total knowledge, total peace, and total contentment. We will be immortal beings with bodies that never age or fall prey to illness or addiction.

    What comes next? God knows.
