Your Throne,  O God,  Is Forever  and Ever

The Old Testament  is filled with prophecies  telling about  our Redeemer.     Psalm 45 is one  of those prophecies  —  and it shows  that Jesus is God,  while still pointing  to God the Father  and God the Holy Spirit.     In this world,  we will never  really understand  how the Father is God,  the Son is God,  and the Holy Spirit is God  —  and yet,  there is  only  one God  —  and absolutely  no other.     Neither will  we understand  how God is called  our Father,  our Husband, and our Bridegroom  —  not to mention our Judge,  Creator,  Sustainer,  Redeemer,   Savior,  Brother,  Light,  Rock,  and Fortress,  along with  many other names.

God is  so much greater  than any mere human  can describe.     In just Psalm 45:6-7  we learn this about Jesus,  our Savior,

Your throne,  O God,  is forever  and ever;
A scepter  of uprightness  is the scepter  of Your kingdom.
You have  loved righteousness,  and hated wickedness;
Therefore God,  Your God,  has anointed You
With the oil  of joy  above Your fellows.

Jesus is  “God”  —  and  His rule  as King of kings  over us  is surely  “forever  and ever”.     Considering how Jesus  loved us  in His suffering  and dying  to pay  for all our sins,  we can know  that He is absolutely  the most gracious  and loving ruler ever.     Our God  and King,  Jesus,  will always rule  with  “uprightness”.      What a relief  that is!     Jesus’  kingdom  is totally righteous.     There is no corruption  of any sort  in Jesus’  rule over us.     This is a most welcome  and trustworthy truth.

The psalmist  describes  our Redeemer  by saying,  “You have loved righteousness,  and hated wickedness.”     When we think  about this,  we remember  how Jesus  has saved us  from the sickening  “wickedness”  of our sinful natures.     And then,  as we come  to believe in Him  —  have faith  in Him  —  He actually  makes us “righteous”  through faith  in His shed blood.     That’s a wonder.

Our Lord Jesus  has “hated wickedness”  so much  that He is destroying it  through His innocent suffering,  death,  and resurrection.     Then,  when He comes  as Judge  over all,  He will  totally destroy all  that is evil  in the everlasting fire.     This verse  is also indicating  Jesus’ love  for all those  who rightly  have faith  in Him  and strive  to live  to His glory.     In the same breath,  Jesus  has  an almighty hatred  for all  “wickedness”.     We need to always keep this  in mind,  because He is our Judge  and knows  our every thought.

Because our King Jesus  truly loves  “righteousness”  and hates  “wickedness”,  God the Father  has anointed Him  “with the oil  of joy”  —  that is a description  of the Holy Spirit,  as used  in Scripture.

Many refuse  to accept Jesus  as their King  “forever  and ever”.     That is terribly wicked.     Need anyone say more?     Just think about it.

Looking  to our eternally righteous  King of kings,  we say,  “Hallelujah!     Lord Jesus,  Your love  of righteousness  saves us.     Thank You  for saving us.”

Love,
Margaret
