Psalm 97: 1-12
The Lord reigneth; let the earth rejoice; let the multitude of isles be glad thereof. The heavens declare His righteousness, and all the people see His glory.
Today's topical discussion was chosen to highlight the awesome God that we serve to give glory and honor for His creative and sustaining powers.
That said, let us look at the four foundations of God's kingdom, and they are: (a) righteousness and justice (v.2). This is because He is righteous. His truth and justice is what all humanity will be judged. (b) God is the ruler of His creation (vv. 1-6, 9). He is the only God who sustains all creations. (c) The Lord God is superior to all other gods (v. 7). The Lord God hears and answers prayers. When you call on Him you always get an answer. You can dial one for the Father, one for the Son and one for the Holy Ghost. He is faithful to supply all our needs. He always keeps His promises. (d) There is unspeakable joy of the righteous (vv 8-12). This joy can only be had from being in the family of God who loved us enough to give His best to redeem all who believe from sin.
This Psalm also gives us a snapshot of Christ's kingdom when He returns to rule at the end of this current age (Revelation 19-22). It is noteworthy to say that there will be an event that will occur that will call for great joy for the redeemed (Isaiah 25:9; Revelation 11:15-17; 18-20, 19:1-2).
The God of our salvation is awesome and superior in every way and worthy to be praised.
