Psalm 89 - Part 1: Building up Mercy (A Spiritual House in Heaven and Covenant for All God's Chosen)


John Young

324 views

Doctrinally Psalm 89 holds all the key facets of our faith in regards to understanding how we are eternally saved from wickedness, sin, and death. Its placement in the collection of Psalms is like a crescendo, as the last chapter in the stormy waters and fears of this evil world, dealt with in book three, so that we can ease into the calm sheltering protection and security in God, dealt with in book four. The goal of Psalm 89 is to instill confidence in our eventual salvation, even when, outwardly, everything seems opposed to it.

In the first of our four sermons in Psalm 89 we are introduced to God's Mercy for all that is being built in heaven so that all who enter in by faith can one day stand before God without suffering his wrath. We are shown that this over arching plan of God had its start before time and will have its completion at the end of time , just before the final Judgement. We are shown its eternal significance and God's ability and power to conquer the forces opposed to it. We are also shown that all the events of history (even the bad events) are being used to bring as many are willing into it.

A key component of God's historic plan that we deal with in this sermon is "David's Spiritual House" (David's Tabernacle) which will be for all people that God will build through a descendant of David (2 Samuel 7). In this we see how David's house is not the nation of Israel but belongs to a separate promise under a separate covenant than Israel.

We also take special note of the Psalmist's name and meaning, Ethan the Ezrahite, as it relates to this psalm as well.

    • Concerning point 2A.  Surely it was because Cain did not choose the best for God as Abel did, but just chose randomly.
    • Hope you enjoy the relaxing photo of a fine fishing location in Bennett Springs State Park, Missouri. Bennett Springs State Park is near Lebanon, Missouri, has some fine fishing (Rainbow  & Brown Trout) areas, hiking trails in a scenic country setting.

    • I put "CC" or "subtitles" on the study, on Matthew 24:29-31, "The World-Wide Gathering & Mourning of the Jews" in order to have a printed text to read.  
    • Hope the devotional music by Christian Hymns & Gospel Music is a blessing to all of you.   In Christ, Alan
    • Bro. @John Young, Thank you for your advice as well it is much appreciated. I was nervous taking the pulpit for the first time and knew my delivery and presentation would be lacking. That wasn't my intention but as nervous as I was it wasn't surprising. One thing I struggled with was making a outline clearly defining each point so I just went through the passage of Scripture. I will focus on getting the hearer from thinking "that's some nice information", to thinking, "I need to d
    • Bro. @Alan, Thank you for your input and teaching me how to upload my sermons. God bless!
    • The content of the sermon was really good and put together well. Aside from delivery and presentation, which will improve with practice, its important to remember that a sermon is not just to convey content but also to move the hearer to action of some sort. So with each point in a sermon, the effort needs to be made in getting the hearer from thinking "that's some nice information", to thinking, "I need to do that". For example, after your message, your pastor got up and gave them a call t
    • I thought that the content of the message, the scripture references, the doctrine within the message that you presented, were all fine. Unless I missed something, I could not find any errors. All in all, it was a fine message on Romans 1:16-17. Your comments on Habakkuk 2:4 were real good. The way you presented the doctrine of repentance was noteworthy. I especially appreciated how you mentioned that, after his conversion experience, Paul had, "... the fruit of repentance..."  As far as upl
    • If anyone could tell me how to get the YouTube video to show in the post without having to click a link I would greatly appreciate it.
    • Bro. Jim, Yes, this is me. I guess now everyone will know what I look like. I normally have not, since this time, put any videos of myself up on Online Baptist due to a couple of reasons. Due to the seriousness of some of the doctrinal problems within independent Baptist churches I decided to put up this sermon of myself instead of a written sermon. This in one of the English prophecy messages that I did at our church, Victory Baptist Church, in Hua Lien, Taiwan awhile back. We have an
