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

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.

    • "For it is impossible for those who were once [enlightened], and have [tasted of the heavenly gift], and were made [partakers of the Holy Ghost], And have [tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come], If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame." (Hebrews 6:4-6) There will come a point in every person's heart where they will NEVER repent and accept the message of the
    • Jim, I am glad to hear that the devotion was a blessing to you. As with many other saints, the life, the character, and the moving incidents in the life of Joseph, are an inspiration.  Throughout the life of Joseph, we can see God moving His hand in the life of Joseph to use him for the deliverance of the Jewish race, the deliverance of the Egyptians, and we can see the character of Christ. Truly, Romans 8:28 is evident in Joseph's life, "And we know that all things work together
    • Well done Bro. Alan. The life and testimony of Joseph should and can be an inspiration and source of Godly instruction for all true believers, even us these many centuries later. 
    • Thank you for your study on the differences of the Convents, and Promises in the scriptures. I personally appreciate the fine history (short), on the worship of God by the Chinese in ancient China. Also, I appreciate the following statement, "We show how the natural divisions and terms already in scripture are there to aid the believer in their study." God bless! 😀
    • I’ve asked you this in another thread, but you have not responded. Can you PLEASE tell me why you put endless brackets around various words when quoting the Bible? I understand when you want to possibly emphasize a phrase or define a phrase - but other than that, I do not know. I find it very distracting and difficult to read when trying to read your studies/posts. At first I thought it might have been to distinguish between regular and italicized words in the Bible (as I have seen some writers
    • Thank you. As you mentioned, "We need to be good stewards" in our handling of the word of God."
    • Bennett Spring State Park, a favorite location to visit for all of my family, is located on Highway 64 going west from Lebanon, Missouri approximately 13 miles. Bennett Springs State Park has a large fish hatchery for Rainbow Trout and is a very popular place for fishermen and locals from the area. Bennett Spring State Park Bennett Springs, MO
    • Thank you for the encouraging sermon on Psalm 89. As you mentioned, we are in a war: battles will be fought, and sometimes we cannot see the victory in the grand scheme of things. But, God knows what He is doing and victory will come in due time. Every saint can rest in the promise in Psalm 89:34, "My covenant will I not break, nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips." "Blessed be the LORD for evermore. Amen and Amen." Psalm 89:52 Keep up  the good work.
    • It is the ignorance of human reasoning that has led many to reinvent God according to their "man-made" concepts and ideologies (e.g., "how can Two or Three persons possibly be One?"). God is not obligated to respond to anyone with a finite mind, but He already has silenced the ignorance on man's part so it may not be repeated. He Answers Job with Questions . . . seems odd, right? or is it? Job was the most righteous man in his time, but even faithful men who draw near to God find themselves aski
    • God is Invisible, and He has revealed Himself in Holy Scriptures, and to a greater extent by the Incarnate Word. Faith is a MUST in order for True Worshipers to Worship God in Spirit and in Truth; and this not only includes the correct understanding concerning the Person and Deity of Christ, but to accept the Inerrancy of all Scripture as Divine Inspiration. There is "external" evidence which points to "Inescapable" FACTS that cannot be denied (e.g., "incriminating or [INDISPUTABLE EVIDENCE]" be
