This Sunday's message: The Song of Zechariah

May 29

Today's Reading: Psalm 89:1-52

Per the Enduring Word Bible Commentary:
"The title of this psalm is A Contemplation of Ethan the Ezrahite. There are several men named Ethan in the Hebrew Scriptures, but this man is mentioned specifically in 1 Kings 4:31 as someone who was famous for his wisdom – yet surpassed by Solomon’s greater wisdom. This means he was likely a contemporary of Solomon and was also alive during the reign of David."

This Psalm recounts God's covenant with David. In particular the Psalmist focuses on God's promise to establish David's offspring "forever". Obviously that is a prophecy of the Messiah, Jesus, since no earthly king ever fulfilled that promise. Right now, Jesus' kingdom is spiritual, but one day He will establish a physical kingdom which He will reign over for eternity.
