22 ANCHOR 2017 PSALMS 75:4

PSALM 75:1-10 “TO YOU, O GOD DO WE GIVE THANKS, TO YOU DO WE GIVE THANKS, FOR THAT YOUR NAME IS NEAR YOUR WONDROUS WORKS DECLARE….”

  • PRAISE THE LORD PASTORS AS WE APPROACH 2017, I BELIEVE THE 2016 ANCHOR HAS BEEN A GREAT BLESSING AND SOURCE OF ENCOURAGEMENT TO US ALL
  • IN ALL THE AGES, THE PSALMS GENERALLY REFLECT GOD’S WAYS WITH HIS PEOPLE AND THE WAYS OF GOD’S PEOPLE WITH HIM
  • THIS PARTICULAR PSALM 75 CAN ACTUALLY BE OVERLOOKED AS NOT BEING A VERY STRIKING ONE, OR HAVING IN IT ANY VERY MEMORABLE OR POWERFUL SENTENCES
  • BUT IT BECOMES VERY POWERFUL WHEN WE HISTORICALLY CONNECT IT WITH HEZEKIAH, AND THE PROBLEMS HE ENCOUNTERED WITH SENNACHERIB WHEN HE REIGNED AS KING IN ISRAEL
  • SENNACHERIB PUT THE HOLY CITY IN DANGER, HEZEKIAH HELD FAST HIS DEPENDENCE ON GOD, THE GOD OF HIS FATHER, THE GOD OF THE NATION
  • THE PSALM IS THE EXPRESSION OF STEADFAST FAITH AND HOPE IN TIMES OF TROUBLE
  • ITS MAIN THEME IS “GOD REIGNS, GOD IS JUDGE, GOD IS NEAR, ALL THINGS WILL BE WELL, FOR GOD IS WITH US”
  • PASTORS AND BRETHREN, THIS IS THE POWERFUL CONVICTION THAT INSPIRE ME DAILY AS A DAUGHTER OF ZION AND AS A LEADER AND SERVANT OF GOD AT THESE END TIMES
  • LET US LOOK AT WHAT THIS POWERFUL CONVICTION CAN DO IN OUR LIVES:

 

  1. THIS CONVICTION WILL GIVE US ALL A QUIET CONFIDENCE
  • THIS TRUST THAT GOD REIGNS, THAT HE IS THE RIGHTEOUSNESS JUDGE
  • THAT GOD IS NEAR AND THAT ALL THINGS WILL BE WELL
  • FOR GOD IS WITH US SHOULD MAKE US FEEL SO RESTFUL AND HAPPY
  • WE SHOULD ALWAYS BE STILL AND KNOW THAT HE IS THE LORD
  • WE JUST NEED TO REGULARLY GIVE THANKS TO GOD ALMIGHTY IN THE NAME OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST
  • COLOSIANS 3:1-14, PSALMS 46
  1. THIS CONVICTION HELPS US TO STAND FAST TO DO THE RIGHT THING
  • WE MUST NOT BE INFLUENCED BY THE APOSTANCY AND ALL THE HERESY AND BACKSLIDING OF OUR TIME
  • MAN CHANGES IN EACH GENERATION
  • BUT GOD IS ALWAYS THE SAME
  • WE MUST BE STRONG AND COURAGES ENOUGH TO DO THE RIGHT THING EVEN WHEN OTHERS ARE COMPROMISING AND FALLING BACK
  • JOSHUA 1:6-8
  • THIS CONVICTION KEEPS US STEADFAST IN THESE EVIL TIMES
  • THE EARTH AND ALL THE INHABITANTS THEREOF ARE DISSOLVED
  • I BEAR UP THE PILLARS OF IT SELAH
  • “ I BEAR UP THE PILLARS”
  • HEZEKIAH GUIDED THE STATE WISELY THROUGH THAT TIME OF DANGER WHEN EVERYTHING SEEMED SHIFTING AND UNCERTAIN
  • HE STOOD FIRM TO GOD’S PRINCIPLES, TO PRIMARY TRUTH, AND GOD
  • GOD ALWAYS COMES ROUND TO THOSE WHO ARE STRONG, AND STAND FOR TRUTH AND RIGHTEOUSNESS
  1. THIS CONVICTION FREES US FROM ALL FEAR OF THE WILFUL ENEMY
  • WE KNOW THAT GOD IS PROMOTER
  • THE EVIL MAN MAY PUSH AND STRIVE
  • BUT GOD IS THE JUDGE
  • HE PUTS DOWN ONE, AND SETS UP ANOTHER, GOD WILL SURELY PROMOTE US IN 2017 IN JESUS NAME
  1. THIS CONVICTION ASSURES US OF FINAL AND IRREVERSIBLE JUSTICE
  • GOD MUST BE AGAINST THE WICKED
  • GOD MUST BE FOR THE RIGHTEOUS AND IT WILL BE SEEN AST LAST BY ALL
  • GOD’S CONSTANT FAITHFULNESS IS FREQUENTLY BROUGHT UP IN THE PSALMS
  • THIS DIVINE FAITHFULNESS IN 2017, AS IN ALL THE YEARS IS THE FOUNDATION OF OUR CONFIDENCE “ HE THAT KEEPETH THEE WILL NOT SLUMBER, BEHOLD THE THAT KEEPETH ISRAEL SHALL NEITHER SLUMBER NOR SLEEP, “REMEMBER HIS MARVELOUS WORKS THAT HE HATH DONE, HIS WONDERS AND THE JUDGEMENT OF HIS MOUTH”
  • GOD OUR CREATOR AND THE CREATOR OF HEAVEN AND THE EARTH IS ALWAYS PROVIDING FOR US, CORRECTING, GUIDING, RESTORING WATCHING OVER US AND DELIVERING US
  • OUR HEAVENLY FATHER IS ALWAYS WORKING OF OUR GOOD
  • GOD IS VERY NEAR TO US, NEAR IN LOVE AND POWER, NEAR IN RESCUE AND BLESSING
  • HE IS NEAR IN AUTHORITY GUIDANCE AND MERCY
  • THIS NEARNESS OF OUR HEAVENLY FATHER BECOMES MUCH CLEARER TO US, WHEN WE GOD BACK TO GOD’S WORD AND CONSIDER FOR EXAMPLE, THE SUDDEN OVERTHROW OF WICKED SENNACHERIB IN 1 KINGS 19:35
  • ALL THE SENNACHERIB IN OUR LIVES AND MINISTRIES MUST BOW BY THE FIRE OF THE HOLY GHOST IN JESUS NAME
  • WITH THAT DEFEAT OF SENNACHERIB, HEZEKIAH COULD CONFIDENTLY REST IN THE ASSURANCE THAT GOD WAS ACTIVELY WORKING FOR HIM
  • THIS IS HOW ALL OUR ENEMIES WILL BE SUDDENLY OVERTHROWN IN 2017 IN JESUS NAME
  • WE SHALL REST FROM ALL FEARS AND ANXIETIES IN JESUS NAME
  • THE FACT OF GOD’S DIVINE INTEREST IN CLMI WILL CERTAINLY BE MADE CLEAR TO US ALL AND TO ALL OUR ENEMIES IN 2017 IN JESUS MIGHTY NAME
  • IN 2017 AND IN THE YEARS THAT FOLLOW , WE SHALL BE KNOWN AS THE SPECIAL OBJECTS OF HIS GRACIOUS DELIVERANCE, FAVOUR AND GUIDANCE IN JESUS NAME
  • WE SHALL ALL SURELY KNOW THAT GOD IS WORKING FOR US
  • THEN SHALL THE HEATHEN CONTINUE TO DECLARE “THE LORD HAS DONE GREAT THING FOR THEM, WHEN THE LORD TURNED AGAIN THE CAPTIVITY OF ZION, WE WERE LIKE THEM THAT DREAM THEN WAS OUR MOUTH FILLED WITH LAUGHTER, AND OUR TONGUE WITH SINGING, THEN SAID THEY AMONG THE HEATHEN, THE LORD HAS DONE GREAT THINGS FOR THEM, THE LORD HAS DONE GREAT THINGS FOR US, WHEREOF WE ARE GLAD.” PSALM 126:1-3
  • THE HEATHEN STARTED TO SEE GOD’S HANDS AGAINST THEM ON OUR BEHALF ALREADY
  • OUR ANCHOR 2016 DID DECLARE THAT GOD’S HANDS AGAINST ALL OUR ENEMIES SHALL BE PERFECTED IN 2017 IN JESUS NAME
  • IN 2017 WE SHALL ALL SEE AND UNDERSTAND THAT IT IS NOT ONLY THAT “WITH GOD ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE” IT IS ALSO THAT ALL THINGS ARE WISE, RIGHT, GOOD AND RIGHTEOUS
  • WE SHALL SEE AND UNDERSTAND THAT IT IS TRUE THAT “HE DOETH ALL THINGS WELL FOR ALL HIS PEOPLE”
  • THE CONVICTION THAT GOD IS ALWAYS WORKING ON OUR BEHALF, AND THAT GOD IS NEAR, CALLS FOR US TO BE MORE THANKFUL IN 2017 AND TO KEEP EXPRESSING OUR TRUST IN HIS HOLY NAME
  • TO YOU” O GOD, DO WE GIVE THANKS , TO YOU DO WE GIVE THANKS, FOR THAT YOUR NAME IS NEAR YOUR WONDROUS WORKS DECLARE” PSALM75:1
  • FOR THAT THY NAME IS NEAR, THY WONDROUS WORKS DECLARE.”
  • EVERY GOD WORSHIPPED BY A PEOPLE HAS HIS OWN DISTINCTIVE NAME AMONG THE PEOPLE
  • BUT THIS IS PARTICULAR TRUE OF THE NATION OF ISRAEL
  • THE DIVINE NAME, JEHOVA, WAS GIVEN AS THE SEAL OF THE SPECIAL COVENANT MADE WITH THE NATION
  • SO THE NAME JEHOVAH FOREVER STANDS FOR GOD
  • IT STANDS FOR GOD’S PRESENCE, GOD’S RELATION AND GOD’S POWERFUL MIRACLES AND DELIVERANCE AMONG HIS PEOPLE
  • “THE NAME OF THE LORD IS A STRONG TOWER, THE RIGHTEOUS RUNS INTO IT, AND IS SAFE, PROVERBS 18:10
  • “THEN THE LORD SAID TO MOSES, NOW SHALL YOU WHAT I WILL DO TO PHAROAH, FOR WITH A STRONG HAND SHALL HE LET THEM GO, AND WITH A STRONG HAND SHALL HE DRIVE THEM OUT OF HIS LAND, AND GOD SPOKE TO MOSES, AND SAID TO HIM, I AM THE LORD, AND I APPEARED TO ABRAHAM, ISAACH AND TO JACOB, BY THE NAME OF GOD ALMIGHTY, BUT BY MY NAME JEHOVA I WAS NOT KNOWN TO THEM, AND I HAVE ALSO ESTABLISHED MY COVENANT WITH THEM, TO GIVE THEM THE LAND OF CANAAN, THE LAND OF THEIR PILGRIMAGE,WHEREIN THEY WERE STRANGERS.” EXODUS 6:1-4
  • GOD HAS A NAME, THIS HELPS US TO REALISE THAT HE IS A PERSON, NOT A MERE FORCE OR INFLUENCE
  • “AND MOSES SAID TO GOD, BEHOLD WHEN I COME TO THE CHILDREN OF ISREAL, AND SHALL SAY TO THEM, THE GOD OF YOUR FATHER HAS SENT ME TO YOU, AND THEY SHALL SAY TO ME WHAT IS HIS NAME? WHAT SHALL I SAY TO THEM? AND GOD SAID TO MOSES I AM THAT I AM AND HE SAID , THUS SHALL YOU SAY TO THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL, I AM HAS SENT ME TO YOU”
  • NOTE THAT: “IAM THAT IAM” IS THE ASSERTION OF ABSOLUTE AND INDEPENDENT EXISTENCE OF GOD ALMIGHTY
  • THIS NAME ASSERTS GOD’S UNIQUE DEITY IN THREE DIRECTIONS, IT ASSERTS:
  1. GOD’S UNITY
  2. GOD’S SPIRITUALITY
  3. GOS’S HOLINESS
  • BUT WE CAN NEVER BE WHOLLY SATISFIED WITH ANY ONE NAME FOR GOD
  • BESIDES ALL THE KNOWN NAMES OF GOD, WE MUST HAVE NAMES OF OUR OWN FOR HIM AS WE PRAISE AND WORSHIP HIM
  • EACH ONE OF US , READING THE STORY OF GOD’S WONDROUS WORKS FOR US AND GRACIOUS DEALINGS WITH US, OUGHT TO BE ABLE TO PUT OUR FEELING FOR HIM INTO A NAME OF OUR OWN
  • WE MUST BE ALBE TO GENERATE NAMES FOR HIM FROM OUR HEARTS WHICH ONLY DEALT WITH HIS ABSTRACT NATURE
  • HE ADDED A NAME WHICH WOULD SUMMARISE HIS COVENANT RELATIONSHIP WITH HIS PEOPLE, AND CALLED HIMSELF, “THE GOD OF ABRAHAM AND ISAACH AND JACOB.”
  • GOD’S NAME IS SAID TO BE “NEAR” WHEN MEN ARE SPECIALLY IMPRESSED WITH HIS WONDERFUL WORKS
  • OUR HEARTS ARE FILLED WITH JOY BECAUSE OF THE POWER AND JUSTICE AND GRACE WHICH ARE SUMMED UP AND EXPRESSED IN HIS NAME “ BEHOLD, THE NAME OF THE LORD COMES FROM FAR, BURNING WITH HIS ANGER, AND THE BURDEN THEREOF IS HEAVY, HIS LIPS ARE FULL OF INDIGNATION, AND HIS TONGUE AS A DEVOURING FIRE, ISAIAH 30:17 “FOR WHAT NATION IS THERE SO GREAT, WHO HAS GOD SO NEAR TO THEM, AS THE LORD OUR GOD IS IN ALL THINGS THAT WE CALL ON HIM FOR?” DEUTERONOMY 4:7
  • SO IN 2017 WE MUST TEACH OUR PEOPLE TO INDIVIDUALLY APPRECIATE GOD AND BLESS HIM WITH MANY NAMES OF PRAISE
  • EACH PERSON WHO GAINS AN INDIVIDUAL REVELATION OF GOD MUST LEARN TO PUT THAT SPECIAL REVELATION INTO A NAME
  • ACCORDING TO HIS DEALINGS WITH YOU,YOU CAN SAY FOR EXAMPLE: “GOD OF HEAVEN, KING, FATHER, MY ROCK, REFUGE, HORN ETC.
  • IN 2017 WE MUST REALLY SEEK CLOSE PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD AND START TO RELATE WITH HIM IN PRAISE AND WORSHIP IN A MORE PERSONAL AND LOVING WAY ACCORDING TO OUR PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP AND REVELATION OF HIM
  • NAMES CALL UP IN OUR MINDS THAT WHICH WE KNOW AND FEEL OF THOSE TO WHOM THEY BELONG
  • THE NAME OF GOD SUGGESTS THEREFORE TO ANY MAN HIS IDEA OF GOD, ONE THING TO ONE MAN, ANOTHER TO ANOTHER
  • TO THE WRITER OF THIS PSALM IT IS EVIDENT WHAT THE NAME OF GOD MEANT TO HIM
  • GOD WAS TO HIM THE GOD WHO LIFTS HIS PEOPLE UP FROM ALL THEIR DISTRESSES, AMEN AND AMEN
  • TO HIM GOD’S NAME IS NEAR, “HE MEANT, AT HAND AND NOT AFAR OFF, TO HIS CONSCIOUSNESS, HE REALISED THIS NEARNESS OF GOD
  • THIS SO KEY FOR US ALL AS PEOPLE OF GOD AT THESE EVIL TIMES OF THE END
  • GOD IS NOT FAR AND HE WILL NEVER BE FAR FROM US ALL IN JESUS NAME
  • OUR VISION IN CLMI WAS TAKEN FROM MARK 16:15-18
  • “AND HE SAID TO THEM, GO YOU INTO ALL THE WORLD AND PREACH THE GOSPEL TO EVERY CREATURE, HE THAT BELIEVES AND IS BAPTISED SHALL BE SAVED, BUTHE THAT BELIEVES NOT SHALL BE DAMNED, AND THESE SIGNS SHALL FOLLOW THEM THAT BELIEVE, IN MY NAME SHALL THEY CAST OUT DEVILS, THEY SHALL SPEAK WITH NEW TONGUES, THEY SHALL TAKE UP SERPENTS, AND IF THEY DRINK ANY DEADLY THING, IT SHALL NOT HURT THEM, THEY SHALL LAY HANDS ON THE SICK AND THEY SHALL RECOVER.”
  • THE LORD CLEARLY SPELL OUT TO US THE ABOVE SCRIPTURE THE POWER IN HIS NAME AS HE EMPOWERS AND AUTHORISES US TO USE IT
  • “IN MY NAME CAST OUT DEVILS”
  • “IN MY NAME SPEAK WITH NEW TONGUES.”
  • “IN MY NAME BE PROTECTED FROM SERPENTS, SCORPIONS, POISONS, AND ALL THE POWER OF THE ENEMY”
  • “IN MY NAME HEAL THE SICK AND SET THE CAPTIVES FREE”
  • BRETHREN THIS IS A SERIOUS LEGACY AND EMPOWERMENT
  • THE NAME OF THE LORD IS A SERIOUS EMPOWERMENT FOR ANYONE WHO WANTS TO PREACH THE GOSPEL
  • WE HAVE TO CONTINUE TO CALL ON THE NAME OF THE LORD IN PRAISE AND WORSHIP , PREACHING AND TEACHING AND PRAYERS AND DECLARATIONS
  • GOD HAS SAVED, DELIVERED AND UPLIFTED SO MANY SOULS IN CLMI CHURCHES
  • HOW MANY SOULS HAS THE NAME OF THE LORD RESCUED FROM THE BURDEN OF SIN, GUILT AND FEAR?
  • WE CANNOT EVEN COUNT HOW MANY HAVE BEEN AND ARE STILL BEING RESCUED FROM ALL FORMS OF SATANIC AFFLICTION, OPPRESSION AND DEATH IN THE POWERFUL NAME OF JESUS
  • CAN WE EVEN COUNT HOW MAMY HAVE ESCAPED FROM UNTIMELY DEATH, AND FROM ALL FORMS OF SATANIC RAGE..?
  • IN ALL SUCH TIMES OF TROUBLE GOD HAS BEEN NEAR TO HIS PEOPLE, AND HAS LIFTED THEM UP FAR ABOVE AND AWAY FROM ALL THEIR FEARS, HALLELUJAH!!
  • APOSTLE PAUL SAYS GOD’S NAME, GOD’S MESSAGE IN CHRIST,”IS NEAR YOU, EVEN IN YOUR MOUTH, AND IN YOUR HEART, THAT IS THE WORD OF FAITH, WHICH WE PREACH,” ROMANS 10:8
  • THE TESTIMONY THAT THE HOLY SPIRIT IS GIVING US IN THIS ANCHOR IS THAT WE SHOULD PUT OUR HOPE AND TRUST IN OUR FATHER WHO IS ALWAYS NEAR AND READY TO UPLIFTING US
  • GOD OF THE WHOLE WORLD AND THE FATHER OF OUR LORD AND SAVIOUR THE LORD JESUS CHRIST
  • GOD’S GRACE IN CHRIST AND HIS INFINITE LOVE IS EVEN REVEALED IN THE COVENANT NAME HE GAVE TO OUR MANDATE
  • “JESUS CHRIST’S CHRIST MINISTRIES OF LOVE AND MERCY, AKA CHRIST’S LOVE MINISTRIES INTERNATIONAL
  • THIS BELOVED PASTORS IS OUR COVENANT NAMES AS CONFIRMED BY THE WORD IN EPHESIANS 3:14-20, “FOR THIS CAUSE I BOW MY KNEES TO THE FATHER OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST OF WHOM THE WHOLE FAMILY AND EARTH IS NAMED, THAT HE WOULD GRANT YOU, ACCORDING TO THE RICHES OF HIS GLORY, TO BE STRENGTHENED WITH MIGHT BY HIS SPIRIT IN THE INNER MAN, THAT CHRIST MAY DWELL IN YOUR HEARTS BY FAITH, THAT YOU BEING ROOTED AND GROUNDED IN LOVE, MAY BE ABLE TO COMPREHEND WITH ALL SAINTS WHAT IS THE BREADTH, AND LENGTH, AND DEPTH, AND HEIGHT, AND TO KNOW THE LOVE OF CHRIST, WHICH PASSES KNOWLEDGE, THAT YOU MIGHT BE FILLED WITH ALL THE FULNESS GOD, NOW TO HIM THAT IS ABLE TO DO EXCEEDING, ABUNDANTLY ABOVE ALL THAT WE ASK OR THINK, ACCORDING TO THE POWER THAT WORKS IN US, TO HIM BE GLORY IN THE CHURCH BY CHRIST JESUS THROUGHOUT ALL AGES, WORLD WITHOUT END, AMEN
  • OUR GOD IS NEAR US AND BECAUSE HE IS RIGHT INSIDE US BY COVENANT
  • HE IS ABLE TO ABLE TO DO EXCEEDING ABUNDANTLY ABOVE ALL THAT WE MAY ASK OR THINK
  • ANYONE OF US WITH THIS REVELATION OF OUR FATHERS’S NEARNESS AND CLOSENESS TO US WILL SIMPLY BE UNSTOPPABLE IN 2017 AND FOREVER IN JESUS NAME
  • THE CONSTANT THEME OF THIS PSALM IS THAT GOD WILL VINDICATE AND UPLIFT THE RIGHTEOUS AND DISGRACE AND DEMOTE THE WICKED
  • IN PSALM 75:4 WHICH IS OUR ANCHOR 2017 THE WICKED ARE WARNED NOT TO “LIFT NOT UP THE HORN,” LIKE A FIERCE BULL THAT ATTACKS HIS OPPONENTS IN PRIDE AND ANGER
  • LET THEM NOT BOAST THEMSELVES IN THEIR FANCIED STRENGTH, AND VERSE 5. REPEAT THIS WARNING
  • VERSE 6 TELLS THEM THAT “UPLIFTING OR PROMOTION IS NEITHER FROM THE EAST NOR THE WEST, NOR SOUTH BUT GOD IS THE JUDGE, HE PUTTETH DOWN ONE AND LIFTS UP ANOTHER, VERSE 7
  • AND THEN ONCE MORE IN VERSE 10 GOD DECLARES THAT THE STRENGTH, THE HORN OF THE RIGHTEOUS SHALL BE LIFTED UP
  • OVER AND OVER AGAIN THIS PSALM REPEATS THAT GOD WILL VINDICATE AND UPLIFT THE RIGHTEOUS AND DISGRACE AND DEMOTE THE WICKED
  • AND THIS GRACIOUS DEALING OF GOD WITH HIS PEOPLE IS THE GROUND OF THE EARNEST THANKSGIVING WITH WHICH THE PSALM OPENS
  • AGAIN IT IS THE “NAME OF GOD WHICH IT ASSERTS TO BE SO NEAR,” WHICH DECLARES HIS WONDROUS WORKS FOR HIS PEOPLE
  • GOD’S GRACIOUS KEEPING OF HIS PEOPLE IS THE THEME OF THIS PSALM, AND HENCE THE WORD “KEEP” IS REPEATED ALL THROUGH THE PSALM
  • WE DO NOT KNOW FOR CERTAIN WHEN OR BY WHOM OR ON WHAT OCCASION, THIS PSALM WAS WRITTEN
  • IT MIGHT HAVE BEEN WRITEN TO CELEBRATE ONE OR ALL OF DAVID’S MANY DELIVERANCES
  • PERHAPS IT WAS THE EXPRESSION OF HOW GOD HAD “UPLIFTED HIM” OUT OF ALL HIS TROUBLES
  • THIS MAY BE WHY HE REPEATEDLY DECLARES HIS VOW OF RIGHTEOUSNESS TO GOD
  • ON THE OTHER HAND THE PSALM MIGHT HAVE BEEN WRITTEN TO CELEBRATE THE “UPLIFTING OF JUDAH AND HEZEKIAH FROM THE ATTACKS OF SENNACHERIB
  • WE DO NOT REALLY KNOW BUT THE IMPORTANCE THING IS THAT WE WILL ALWAYS BE ABLE TO APPLY THIS GRACIOUS WORD FROM THE LORD TO ALL OUR INDIVIDUAL, MINISTERIAL AND CORPORATE NEEDS IN CLMI IN 2017 IN JESUS NAME
  • IT IS IMPORTANT TO NOTE THE POWERFUL EXCUBERANT THANKSGIVING THAT IS CONSTANTLY REPEATED IN THIS PSALM
  • THE WRITER’S HEART WAS FULL, HE REPEATS THANKSGIVING, IT IS AS IF HE FELT HIMSELF UNABLE TO THANK GOD ENOUGH
  • AS IF HE KEPT SAYING, “YEA, LORD, UNTO THEE DO WE GIVE THANKS , YEA WE DO”
  • AS HE WANTED THE GRATITUDE TO RISE FROM MANY HEARTS, NOT ONE ALONE, IT IS “WE” NOT “I”
  • SO ALL IN CLMI SHOULD BE ENOURAGED AND TAUGHT TO GIVE GOD CONSTANT PRAISE AND WORSHIP IN 2017 AND FOREVER IN JESUS NAME
  • THE LEVEL OF GRATITUDE SHOULD ALWAYS REVEAL THE ABUNDANCE OF THE GRACE RECEIVED
  • GOD’S GRACE AND MERCY FOR US HAVE BEEN GREAT INDEED AND IT WAS BOTH UNEXPECTED AND UNDERSERVED
  • WE RETURN ALL THE GLORY AND HONOUR AND PRAISES TO GOD THE FATHER OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST
  • GOD IS NEAR AS THE SUSTAINER OF THIS DISSOLVING WORLD
  • “THE EARTH AND ALL THE INHABITANTS THEREOF ARE DISSOLVED; I BEAR UP THE PILLARS OF IT, SELAH” PSALM 75:3
  • THE FORCE OF DISINTEGRATION AND DESTRUCTION IS HITTING OUR WORLD AS WE PREPARE TO MEET THE LORD WHEN HE APPEARS IN THE SKY TO TAKE US HOME
  • EARTHQUAKES GLOBAL WARMING, DROUGHT, FLOODS, FIRE, WAR, FAMINNE AND INCURABLE DISEASES ARE RAVAGING THIS WORLD
  • NATIONS ARE IN DISTRESS AND MANKING IS FEARFUL AND CONFUSED
  • “AND THERE SHALL BE SIGNS IN THE SUN, AND IN THE MOON, AND IN THE STARS, AND ON THE EARTH DISTRESS OF NATIONS, WITH PERPLEXITY, THE SEA AND THE WAVES ROARING, MEN’S HEART FAILING THEM FOR FEAR, AND FOR LOOKING AFTER THOSE THINGS WHICH ARE COMING ON THE EARTH, FOR THE POWERS OF HEAVEN SHALL BE SHAKEN, AND THEN SHALL THEY SEE THE SON OF MAN COMING IN A CLOUD WITH POWER AND GREAT GLORY, AND WHEN THESE THINGS BEGIN TO COME TO PASS, THEN LOOK UP AND LIFT UP YOUR HEADS FOR YOUR REDEMPTION DRAWS NEAR.” LUKE 21:24-28
  • THE ONLY FORCE THAT PREVENTS THE WHOLE UNIVERSE FROM TUMBLING TO PIECES FOR NOW IS GOD
  • THE SAME PRINCIPLE FO DISINTEGRATION IS AT WORK IN HUMAN SOCIETY, FAMILIES, SOCIETIES, CHURCHES, NATIONS, ARE ALL FALLING APART
  • KINGDOMS ARE CONSTANTLY BREAKING INTO PIECES
  • GOD ALONE KEEPS THINGS TOGETHER
  • HE BEARS UP THE PILLARS OF A DISSOLVING UNIVERSE, “HE UPHOLDS ALL THINGS BY THE WORD OF HIS POWER.”
  • IN HIS LOVING KINDNESS AND FAITHFULNESS HE TELLS US NOT TO FEAR
  • WE ARE NOT FEAR FOR HE IS NEAR US EVEN INSIDE US AS THE RIVER OF LIFE JOHN 7:37
  • WE MUST JUST RELEASE THAT RIVER OF LIVING WATER OUT OF OUR BELIES AS WE BECOME MORE AND MORE WATCHFUL AND PRAYERFUL, TRULY I SAY TO YOU, THIS GENERATION SHALL NOT PASS AWAY, TILL ALL BE FULFILLED, HEAVEN AND EARTH SHALL PASS AWAY, BUT MY WORDS SHALL NOT PASS AWAY, AND TAKE HEED TO YOURSELVES,LEST AT ANY TIME YOUR HEARTS BE OVERCHANGED WITH SURFEITING AND DRUNKENNESS AND CARES OF THIS LIFE, AND SO THAT DAY COME ON YOU UNAWARES, FOR AS A SNARE SHALL IT COME ON ALL THEM THAT DWELL ON THE FACE OF THE WHOLE EARTH, WATCH THEREFORE, AND PRAY ALWAYS THAT YOU MAY BE ACCOUNTED WORTH TO ESCAPE ALL THESE THINGS THAT SHALL COME TO PASS, AND TO STAND BEFORE THE SON OF MAN
  • ANOTHER INTERPRETATION OF GOD IS NEAR IS NOW HIGHLIGHTED AS WE SEE ALL THESE SIGNS AND EXPECT THE LORD’S APPEARANCE
  • GOD IS NEAR AS THE REBUKER OF HUMAN WICKEDNESS PSALM 75:4,5
  • THREE PHASES OF WICKEDNESS ARE HERE AND INDICATED
  1. FOLLY – “DEAL NOT FOOLISHLY.”SIN IS FOLLY, IT IS AGAINST THE REASON, THE INTERESTS , THE DIGNITY AND BLESSEDNESS OF EXISTENCE, “ HE THAT SINNETH AGAINST ME WRONGETH HIS OWN SOUL”
  2. HAUGHTINESS – LIFT NOT UP THE HORN, PRIDE AND ARROGANCE ENTER INTO THE VERY ESSENCE OF WICKEDNESS.”GOD RESISTENCE THE PROUD,ETC.
  3. RECKLESSNESS – “SPEAK NOT WITH A STIFF NECK, BOLD , SHAMELESS, OBSTINATE DISREGARD TO THE CLAIMS OF GOD AND ALL THE MORAL PROPRIETIES
  • GOD IS PRESENT IN THE WORLD AND IN HIS CHURCH, REPROVING ALL THE WICKEDNESS WITH THE VOICE OF PROVIDENCE
  • HE REPROVES BY APPEALING TO OUR CONSCIENCE, BY THE MINISTRY OF HIS WORD AND THE STIRRINGS OF HIS SPIRIT
  • WE HIS PEOPLE SHOULD ESPECIALLY REMEMBER THAT EVEN THOUGH HE IS NEAR AS THE SOVEREIGN LORD IN CHARGE OF ALL SOCIAL CHANGES, “FOR PROMOTION COMETH NEITHER FROM THE EAST, ETC. “BUT GOD IS THE JUDGE , HE PUTTETH DOWN ONE, AND SETTETH UP ANOTHER1 SAMUEL 2:7
  • HE IS IN THE RISE AND IN THE FALL, NOT ONLY EMPIRES BUT INDIVIDUAL MEN “HE RAISETH UP THE POOR OUT OF THE DUST,”ETC.
  • HE IS NEAR – ADMINISTERING TO ALL MEN HIS JUSTICE FROM A COMMON SOURCE – HIS DIVINE CUP PSALM 75:8 WHAT IS THAT CUP? INFINITE BENEVOLENCE
  • FROM THIS CUP “HE POURETH,” GREAT NATURAL BLESSINGS. “GOD IS GOOD, AND HIS TENDER MERCIES ARE OVER ALL THE WORKS OF HIS HAND.”
  • THE CUP IS A MIXED CUP “FULL OF MIXTURE. “WHAT AN INFINITE VARIETY OF BLESSINGS ARE IN THIS CUP
  • SOMETHING FROM IT FALLS FRESH UPON EVERY BEING EVERY HOUR
  • THE CONTENTS OF THIS CUP HAVE A DIFFERENT EFFECT UPON DIFFERENT CHARACTERS
  • TO THE RIGHTEOUS IT IS A PLEASANT CUP, ITS BLOOMING, SPARKLING MIXTURE IS DELICIOUS AND INSPIRING
  • NOT SO TO THE WICKED, WHAT IS DELICIOUS AND SUSTAINING TO THE GOOD IS DISTASTEFUL AND HARMFUL TO THE EVIL AND THE DISOBIDIENT
  • YES HE IS NEAR TO DESTROY THE POWER OF THE WICKED AND TO AUGMENT THE POWER OF THE RIGHTEOUS PSALM 75:10
  • THE WHOLE TENDENCY OF GOD IN THE MORAL WORLD TENDS TO PUT DOWN THE WRONG AND TO RAISE AND GLORIFY THE RIGHT
  • IN THAT CASE THAT TENDENCY APPLIES TO THE WORLD AS TO US HIS PEOPLE IN THE BODY OF CHRIST
  • WE REAP WHAT WE SOW “BE NOT DECEIVED, GOD IS NOT MOCKED, FOR WHATEVER A MAN SOWS, THAT SHALL HE REAP, FOR HE THAT SOWS TO HIS FLESH SHALL OF THE FLESH REAP CORRUPTION, BUT HE THAT SOWS TO THE SPIRIT SHALL OF THE SPIRIT REAP LIFE EVERLASTING.” GALATIANS 6:7-8
  • FINALLY GOD’S WORD TO US IN 2017, DECLARES GOD’S NEARNESS TO USING THE FOLLOWING WAYS:
  1. TO OBSERVE OUR SINS AND REBUKE THEM, JOB 24:14,15:,PSALM 139:2-4; GENESIS 3:9-24, GENESIS 19:24-28, JOSHUA 7:24-26; ACTS 5:1-10
  2. TO NOTICE OUR DESIRES AFTER HIM JEREMIAH 31:18-20, LUKE 15:20
  • TO PARDON, SANCTIFY, AND JUSTIFY US ISAIAH 50:7-9
  1. TO ANSWER ALL OUR PRAYERS PSALM 145:18,19 ISAIAH 65:24, MATT 7:7-11
  2. TO RELIEVE OUR WANTS PSALM 34:10, PSALM 84:11, HABBAKUK 3:17,18
  3. TO HELP AND DELIVER US IN DISTRESS PSALM 34:19, ISAIAH 49:10
  • TO SAVE US FROM DANGER DANIEL 3:27, JOB: PETER
  • FROM PSALM 75:5 OUR ANCHOR 2017, WE MAY DERIVE WARNING TO SINNERS, AN ENCOURAGEMENT TO THE PENITENT, COMFORT TO BELIEVE
  • THE ANCHOR CLEARLY WARNS US THT IT IS MADNESS TO RESIST GOD
  • WE MUST FEAR GOD AND AVOID HIS RIGHTEOUS JUDGEMENT AT THESE END TIMES
  • NO ARROGANT SELF-EXALTATION WILL CARRY IT OUT IF HE SEES NO REPENTANCE.”THOUGH HAND JOIN IN HAND, THE WICKED SHALL NOT GO UNPUNISHED” PROVERBS 11:8
  • ANOTHER IMPORTANT TRUTH FROM THIS PSALM IS THAT AS END TIME INTERCESSORS WE MUST HUMBLE OURSELVES AS WE PRAY FOR NATIONS
  • GOD’S RIGHTEOUS JUDGEMENT IS NOW ON THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH THAT PROVOKES HIM DAILY WITH THEIR WICKEDNESS AND IDOLATORY “THE WICKED SHALL BE TURNED INTO HELL, AND ALL THE NATIONS THAT FORGET GOD.” PSALM 9:17
  • THE MORE WE CRY TO HEAVEN FOR SYRIA, THE MORE IT LOOKS LIKE BURNING HELL
  • WHEN WE SEE GOD’S ANGER AND RIGHTEOUS JUDGEMENT WE MUST HUMBLE OURSELVES AND SIMPLY WORSHIP HIM
  • GOD’ S TIMES OF JUDGEMENT ARE WISELY AND DIVINE CHOSEN PSALM 75:2 “WHEN THE SET TIME IS COME, I EVEN I, WILL JUDGE UPRIGHTLY”.
  • HE EXECUTES HIS SENTENCE NOT ACCORDING TO MAN’S IMPATIENT EXPECTATIONS, BUT AT THE TIME WHICH HE HIMSELF HAS CHOSEN
  • HE SUSTAINS THE WORLD BY THE PILLARS WHICH HE HAS SET UP
  • GOD IS THE REAL SOURCE OF EVERY RIGHTEOUS REVOLUTION IN THE WORLD
  • PSALM 75:6-7 “GLORY AND POWER COME NOT FROM ANY EARTHLY SOURCE, THOUGH A MAN SHOULD SEEK IT IN EVERY QUARTER OF THE GLOBE, BUT ONLY FROM GOD, WHO LIFTETH UP AND CASTETH DOWN ACCORDING TO HIS OWN RIGHTEOUS SENTENCE
  • IN CONCLUSION THE SPIRIT OF THIS PSALM 75 IS FEARLESSNESS WHICH CHARACTERISIZES IT THROUGHTOUT AND CONCERNING THIS SPIRIT IT TEACHES US MUCH AND ESPECIALLY THE FOLLOWING TRUTH:
  1. THE CONVICTION THAT GOD IS NEAR AT HAND FOR OUR HELP, FOR THAT THY NAME IS NEAR, ETC. HIS MESSAGE GIVES US PROVIDENCE, GRACE AND STRENGTH FOR US TO CULTIVATE THE FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT THAT WE NEED IN ORDER TO SURVIVE AT THESE ENDTIMES AS WE OBSERVE THE FOLLOWING BY HIS GRACE
  2. 1. THANKFULNESS VERSE 1
  3. RIGHTEOUS DEALING VERSE 2, I WILL JUDGE UPRIGHTLY
  4. CLEAR SIGHTNEDNESS AS TO THE REALITY OF THINGS VERSE 3. WHERE THIS SPIRIT IS,

THERE IS NO FEAR OF MAN, HE SHRINKS NOT FROM FACING AND CONFESSING THE

ACTUAL TRUTH HOWEVER UNWELCOME IT MAY BE

  1. CHEERFUL TOIL “ I BEAR UP THE PILLARS OF IT” VERSE 3 CF,ST. PAUL, “ I CAN DO ALL THINGS THROUGH CHRIST, “ETC
  2. FAITHFUL TESTIMONY VERSE 4. AGAINST THE WICKED FOR GOD VERSE 7 CONCERNING WRATH TO COME VERSE 8
  3. DELIGHT IN GOD VERSE 9.
  4. OPEN SIDING WITH THE RIGHT AGAINST THE WRONG VERSE 10

THE GREAT EXEMPLAR AND GIVER OF THIS SPIRIT – THE LORD JESUS CHRIST
