"The Lord reigns, he is robed in majesty;
the Lord is robed in majesty and armed with strength;
indeed, the world is established, firm and secure.
Your throne was established long ago;
you are from all eternity."

- Psalms 93:1-2

The Lord Reigns!

Psalm 93 celebrates the Lord’s reign on the earth and prophetically anticipates the future enthronement of the Lord on the earth when he establishes his millennial kingdom and rules as the Messiah seated on the throne of David. There are other Psalms similar to this one such as Psalm 95, Psalm 96, Psalm 97, Psalm 98, Psalm 99 and Psalm 47. These can be entitled “theocratic psalms” or “royal psalms” or “enthronement psalms” since they focus on God’s eternal kingship from eternity past which extends through all of history into eternity future. But, also, because of the scriptural promise that anticipates the eventual establishment of the Lord’s kingdom on earth. The prophets, the apostles and the Lord himself spoke of this future day (“Your kingdom come, your will be done,” – Mt.6:10).

In Psalm 93:1 the psalmist sees the Lord currently reigning while dressed in his glory and equipped with his divine strength. This rule is sure and secure since according to 93:2 his “throne was established long ago…from all eternity.” This is not a recent victory, but is instead the manifestation of a throne that has been established since before time began. The Lord’s kingdom and us, the subjects of that kingdom, are secure for “endless days.” (93:5)

This psalm is not only prophetic, but has also been a source of praise for believers in every generation for 3,000 years.
The Lord reigns!
Entole (Gr) - Commandment (Eng) – the Greek word entole means “commandment,” “precept,” and “instruction.” Entole can mean “precept” in Koine Greek and is applied to imperial orders, public laws, constitutions and royal decrees. Entole is used in John 13:34; 14:21, 23; 15:10, 14 as a command for the disciples to love. In 1 John 3:23 the entole is to believe correct doctrine concerning Jesus. In 1 John 2:4-5 and Revelation 3:8, 10; 12:17 the entole is very closely associated with the logos (word).
I will take time today to praise the Lord because of His majesty and strength.

Coach’s Corner

In order to serve God you must be doing his will

Isaiah 39
New International Version (NIV)
Envoys From Babylon
39 At that time Marduk-Baladan son of Baladan king of Babylon sent Hezekiah letters and a gift, because he had heard of his illness and recovery. Hezekiah received the envoys gladly and showed them what was in his storehouses—the silver, the gold, the spices, the fine olive oil—his entire armory and everything found among his treasures. There was nothing in his palace or in all his kingdom that Hezekiah did not show them.
Then Isaiah the prophet went to King Hezekiah and asked, “What did those men say, and where did they come from?”
“From a distant land,” Hezekiah replied. “They came to me from Babylon.”
The prophet asked, “What did they see in your palace?”
“They saw everything in my palace,” Hezekiah said. “There is nothing among my treasures that I did not show them.”
Then Isaiah said to Hezekiah, “Hear the word of the Lord Almighty: The time will surely come when everything in your palace, and all that your predecessors have stored up until this day, will be carried off to Babylon. Nothing will be left, says the Lord. And some of your descendants, your own flesh and blood who will be born to you, will be taken away, and they will become eunuchs in the palace of the king of Babylon.”
“The word of the Lord you have spoken is good,” Hezekiah replied. For he thought, “There will be peace and security in my lifetime.”
Psalm 136
New International Version (NIV)
