Psalm 99

June 4, 2009

This is another great psalm of praise in this series which began with Psalm 95. It basically has two parts, verses 1-5 and 6-9 but even those could be divided into 3 and 2 and 3 and 1 respectively. The psalm begins by pointing out that the Lord rules over all the nations even though His earthly throne at the time of this writing is in Zion in the temple over the Ark between the cherubim in the Holy of Holies. The Lord God is a holy ruler over all people, not just Israel, and therefore, all people should praise His Name.

The Lord is mighty and just. His rulings are equitable for all people and without bias. This is proved by His dealing with Israel. Because God is just, He deserves our praise and adoration.

Those who call upon the Lord as did Samuel, Moses, and Aaron receive an answer. God has shown His willingness to answer all who call upon His Name, who seek His will and wisdom, and who desire to obey Him. The deeds of mankind, both individual and corporate, will be punished but God also forgives those who call upon Him for forgiveness and seek repentance, humbling themselves before Him.

Therefore, praise the Lord and worship Him for He is Holy, the Almighty, and just. There is no other God but the Lord. Consider your choices. There is none righteous or worthy of our praise but the Lord God. Thank Him for His holiness and righteousness, worship Him, praise His Name, and commit to follow Him. Be a child of the Heavenly Father. Be a sheep in the flock of the Good Shepherd. Call upon the Lord and hear His answer.
