Psalm 122, THE THRONES OF JUDGEMENT
SEEING BEYOND SIGHT
Now I begin to see the end of the tunnel and now "I can begin to reach into the Light" as I take another step and leave my burdons behind me.
I find great joy inside as I now begin to reach my destination and in this I find communion with others.
Now I have taken the third step above and casting a shadow Hebrews 1:9 Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows. ["Fellows here being "Neigbours"]
King David here "would have been speaking of a tabernacle" a tent meeting place [made of skins] where others would meet together to let go and let God "in worship"
David felt the joy and gladness of worshipping God - this was a unity that David knew [in another song of ascent/step]
Psalm 133:2 It is like precious oil poured on the head, running down on the beard, running down on Aaron's beard, down on the collar of his robe.
Of course David knew more about opposition and disunity - he knew more about disputes and arguments - but what gave him joy was meeting with others and in unity, to worship God and you might now be drawn to this scripture 2 Samuel 6:14 Wearing a linen ephod, David was dancing before the LORD with all his might,
Here David was stepping out and drawing near to God - here Love is an action - and this was a prophetic action/vision.
LOVE IS AN ACTION
Love is an action and not an emotion ......
So what is love ! - God's love is action.
Emotion can be misleading - as with David and the lesson he learnt with Bathsheba.
How amazing that one person called David should be chosen to prophesy into our lives now [speak into - spoken into ]
How amazing that God should choose David to prophesy his Son's life and what would be = Psalm 22:19-23 - Psalm 34:20 and how amazing that Davids life should be used to prophesy our steps ... in the future [which is now] and our future.
Here David was entering into prophetic action/vision/ as he danced before the Lord in front of a congegation of people.
Here countless onlookers were watching him Hebrews 12:1 [ in scripture] people reading the prophetic word [far into the future] as he danced before the Lord [tabernacled with] knew God - wanted His prescence - sought God -needed His Holy Spirit.
Wow what a fantastic gift God had given Old Testament "tabernaclers"
DID GOD TABERNACLE IN THE HEART OF ABSALOM
The Hebrew people in egypt had three Feasts - the feast of Unleavened Bread, the Feast of Harvest, and the Feast of Ingathering ....
Now we are moving up to the Thrones of Judgement in the third step [three steps - passover, pentecost, and tabernacles] three feasts of the Ascension...
You see how things develop here in the "Shadow"
Psalm 122:5 For there are set thrones of judgment, the thrones of the house of David
These are thrones in the sanctuary -
Davids son absalom was not given tbe office/gift/ of justice and you might ask why - this is because the Son of man shall sit on His Throne and then we shall Judge - therefore God was not on the Throne of Absalom's life !
Therefore Absalom never saw justice or ordered justice - indeed Absalom did judge [by his own eyes/insight] and ordered war against his father David - here he judged through his own eyes/view/office/sight .
Now we may be priests and kings and hold an office of Judgement - as Jesus sits at our Throne Matthew 19:28 Jesus said to them, "Truly I tell you, at the renewal of all things, when the Son of Man sits on his glorious throne, you who have followed me will also sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.
Now notice that Absalom - Davids own son should have had the office of Judgement /looked to the hills/ to put himself above his fellow men - he used this to serve himself to become a tower/mountain/elevate himself/take another step/justify himslelf/ - thus he was never given this office 2 Samuel 15:4 And Absalom would add, "If only I were appointed judge in the land! Then everyone who has a complaint or case could come to me and I would see that they receive justice." [God saw his heart/ therefore he was never given the office of Judge]
Indeed Absalom received justice at the hands of God Himself - hence there is a throne of Judgement in this life - here the thrones of judgement" are administered by God's people - once having been put at a certain place [step three].
There are some that judge by their own plank and others that judge in the land by office.
Here you [you] shall judge the nations in the thones of Judgement only once God is on the Throne of your life - obviously Absalom still judged and to him justice was served as he was killed by his own sword.
This is a lesson to learn - that as we judge will shall be/ are/ served by our own sword .
PARADOX OF GOD
God took action and sent His only begotten Son ...... He awaits a response/action/ = this is the Paradox - that God is greater than His own precetive Will for us - in that "the thief on the Cross asked for mercy as Jesus was comdemned as a thief/murderer/adulterer/lier/" - no action apart from a few words could save the thief/adulterer/murderer/lier/ on the Cross [next to Jesus] or give him eternal life" - except Jesus
PRECEPTIVE WILLPsalm 122:7 May there be peace within your walls and security within your citadels."
Here we have God's Preceptive Will for His people..... [ God would want that we all love, are Holy, repent, follow His ways ]
Yes, may all repsond to the call of God and His Preceptive Will- may all quicken the coming of Christ - may all go to the banquet [but not all did/do/will] see : "the chosen/those good people = Luke 14:17 16But Jesus replied, ?A certain man prepared a great banquet and invited many guests. 17When it was time for the banquet, he sent his servant to tell those who had been invited, ?Come, for everything is now ready.? 18But one after another, they all began to make excuses. The first one said, ?I have bought a field and I need to go see it. Please excuse me...
[So God say's "So go to the street corners and invite to the banquet anyone you find.']
Love is a verb/acton/ response/ and God see's these actions/responses.
God's action was that He sent His only begotten Son... our action is how we respond in the third step. [In God's preceptive Willl - to follow His precepts] "an action"
Now get up you filthy sinner - you good for nothing Adulterous, Murdering, Lying, prostitute, thief and welcome to my banquet...My Holy Bride.
SELAH AND CONSIDER THIS
I will finish the study at this point
At the moment of writing this study - God showed me that we all commit murder [in one way or another] - we alll tell lies -we all fall short - we all adulterate - we all steal from God ....
Therefore I wil llet you take the next step [the third step] and simply pray.
Thankyou Jesus that you have made us righteous before the Father by the power of Your Holy Spirit.
Thankyou Lord Jesus that I am a thief , a lier, an adulterer, a murderer, but yet you have uplifted me to the third step in Jesus name
Jesus answers as you take another step and says "Truly I tell you, today you will be with me in paradise."
This must be the sinners prayer ...................
It is Finshed.
