๐ŸŽ„๐Ÿ‘‘๐ŸŽถ Joy To The World! #1

โ€œMake a joyful noise unto the LORD, all the earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praiseโ€ (Psalm 98:4).

The first verse of the classic Christmas carol highlights todayโ€™s Scripture.

โ€œJoy to the world! The Lord is come;
Let earth receive her King;
Let every heart prepare Him room,
And heaven and nature sing,
And heaven and nature sing,
And heaven, and heaven, and nature sing.โ€

English hymn writer Isaac Watts (1674โ€“1748) wrote his beloved Christmas carol after reading todayโ€™s Scripture. Psalm 98, with Psalm 96, is actually one of the โ€œnew songโ€ psalms. These songs will literally be sung at Jesus Christโ€™s coronation, when Father God crowns Him as King over all, and when He reigns over all creation. Psalm 93:1, โ€œThe LORD reigneth….โ€ And, Psalm 96:10-13: โ€œSay among the heathen that the LORD reigneth…. Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad… Let the field be joyful, and all that is therein: then shall all the trees of the wood rejoice Before the LORD: for he cometh to judge the earth: he shall judge the world with righteousness, and the people with his truth.โ€ And, Psalm 97:1, โ€œThe LORD reigneth….โ€ Finally, Psalm 99:1, โ€œThe LORD reigneth….โ€

Why the rejoicing? The crown that Adam lost back in the Garden of Eden thousands of years earlier (Genesis 1:26-28); the crown that Satan had ever so long as โ€œthe prince of the power of the airโ€ (Ephesians 2:2) and โ€œthe god of this worldโ€ (2 Corinthians 4:4); the crown that Satan offered the Lord Jesus if He bowed and worshipped him (Matthew 4:8-10; Luke 4:5-8); through His crosswork, Jesus Christ has won it back for Father Godโ€™s glory! See Hebrews 2:5-9 and Philippians 2:5-11.

Godโ€™s earthly program to exalt Jesus Christ as King over Earth is currently delayed. He is doing something different today. Just as Jesus Christ will reign over Earth throughout eternity, He will also rule over the heavenly places. The heavenly places are where we fit in as members of the Church the Body of Christ. Yes, there will be great rejoicing in Heaven and on Earth. The universeโ€™s world systemsโ€”Heaven and Earthโ€”will be completely revamped and Satan will be removed from power! source

Verse for 3/30/2017

He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not. Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. — Isaiah 53:3-4
