Our Evening Message:
Exposition of Psalm 149: “HalleluYaH: The High Praise and Sword of the Saints”,
In this sermon and bible study message we will be exposing the Proclamations of Praise to YHWH God HalleluYaH as we consider the Eternal and everlasting Praise of the Father Son and Spirit once again. Looking at the various passages of scripture that reveal the Persons of the Godhead, YHWH, In this Psalm we see how the beatification or adorning of Salvation by the Spirit in giving us the goring and joy in the Father Maker of Heaven and earth and in the King and Son equips the Saints with the weapons of their warfare to do battle in this present evil world by Spiritual means more than the carnal.

Our Sabbath Call to Worship, is from our Psalm 149, with prayer, praise and exposition of the same, OT Reading is Numbers 21 & NT Reading John 1:1-18, Confessional from 1 Tim 3:16.

Support the efforts of those who Minister to you…

Notes from exposition of Ps 149

Psa_149:1 Praise ye the LORD (Father).
Sing (ado verb) unto the LORD (Son) a new( καινον / kahee-non G2537 ) song,( asma noun) and his praise in the congregation of saints (Holy ones).
Psa 149:2  Let Israel rejoice in him that made him: let the children of Zion be joyful in their King.

To consider the Song that is sung here, the New Song, and to recognize who the Persons of the God are in reference in this introduction to the Psalm, we must recognize 1 thing first, HalleluYah is the Song, it is the New Song or the ‘kaheenon asma’.(Psa. 33:3; 40:3; 96:1; 98:1; 149:1.)

In the NT we meet with a similar consept though different, the concep is of a New or keheenon ode
Rev_5:9  And they sung (verb) a new song (Noun), saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;
Rev 5:10  And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.
Rev 14:3  And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth.

When we look at this word kaheeh-, we should remember that this is that fresh word, not a new creation, not neos or ‘new’, rather this is the word that speaks of freshness.
This why we do not believe the dispensationalist doctrine of the English thoughts on the New Covenant as a neos covenant in reformed theology, because we understand that these are times of refreshing not neo / new creation- especially in light of YHWH God’s eternal and Everlasting nature and covenant.

This is why we can say:
2Co_3:6  (God the Spirit) hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.
And as the refreshing or renewal is as a covenant member and the law on the heart, so is the new songs and ‘new odes’ which we sing.
So, in this text we see the Praise which we see: HalleluYah as a refreshed song, the same old song that is never old when it is sung in the congregation of saints (Holy ones, it is new.

and who is Identified in the text:

Psa 149:1  Praise ye the LORD.
Sing unto the LORD a new song, and his praise in the congregation of saints.
Psa 149:2  Let Israel rejoice in him that made him: let the children of Zion be joyful in their King.
Psa 149:3  Let them praise his name in the dance: let them sing praises unto him with the timbrel and harp.

Now when we generically speak of the one who made Israel, we know we are generally speaking of YHWH, and thereby the first HalleluYah to the Father: “We believe in God the Father almighty maker of heaven and earth”

we see this language orderly arraigned time and again in scripture as we speak of the general creation as we think of the Son as the Word of God:

1Co_8:6  But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.
Joh 1:3  All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
Joh_1:3; Col_1:16; Heb_1:2-3

The flow of the language always says the Father made or created by Him, so while we believe the Son is also YHWH the Creator, we recognize the language that says the Father and the Spirit made by the Word, By the Son and by Jesus Christ.

The Father is thus the Maker of focus here, because as Hebrews 1-2 testifies and other’s, the King and mediator the Son is who the children of Zion are joyful in , their King.

1Ti_1:17  Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen.
1Ti_6:15  Which in his times he shall shew, who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords;

Now it is at this point that I must say by the word of John:

1Jn 2:22  Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.
1Jn 2:23  Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father:
1Jn 2:24  Let that therefore abide in you, which ye have heard from the beginning.
If that which ye have heard from the beginning shall remain in you, ye also shall continue in the Son, and in the Father.

And let me also say it like this,
1Jn 2:22  He who knows the truth knows that Jesus is the Christ!
He is christian, who affirms the Father and the Son.
1Jn 2:23  Whosoever believes the Son, the same has the Father also:
1Jn 2:24  Let that therefore abide in you, which ye have heard from the beginning.
If that which ye have heard from the beginning shall remain in you, ye also shall continue in the Son, and in the Father.

Here is a powerful example of kaheenos, the refreshing- here is an eternal truth that you may have newly heard, and here is the substance of HalleluYah, that the Spirit f God has adorned you or beautified you with the praise of the knowledge of this Salvation.
The whole impact of this praise are as we have heard before:

Col_3:16  Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.
Thus thy:
Psa 149:3  Let them praise his name in the dance: let them sing praises unto him with the timbrel and harp.

and the Next mention of that Covenant name given to the Saints and Children of Israel, praised the work of the Spirit in teaching this Prise, refreshed and renewed:
Psa 149:4  For the LORD (Spirit) taketh pleasure in his people: he will beautify the meek with salvation.
ESV Psa 149:4 …he adorns the humble with salvation.

Now look at he trun of the Psalm, it is not an unusual trun to mix praise and song and dancing with war, but look at what happens to the man who awakes from bed with this renewed strength

Psa 149:5  Let the saints be joyful in glory: let them sing aloud upon their beds.
Psa_149:6  Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a twoedged sword in their hand;
Psa 149:7  To execute vengeance upon the heathen /nations, and punishments upon the people;
Psa 149:8  To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron;
Psa 149:9  To execute upon them the judgment written: this honour have all his saints.

Praise ye the LORD.
Heb_4:12; Rev_1:16
Rev_2:16, Rev_19:15

About JS Lowther

Foremost I know that I am a chief sinner saved by Grace. I am a servant of YHWH Almighty the one true God Who is Father, Son and Spirit. I believe in God's only begotten and perfect Son Jesu(s) Christ whose redemption power of my soul I have Faith in and testify of. Having been redeemed by the blood of Christ, I wish to no longer spend my time in the lusts of the flesh and of this world, but to promote the Gospel of the Kingdom by means of the knowledge of the New Covenant, a reNewal of the Covenant God made with his people Israel in the blood of Christ (Jer 31:31 and Heb 8:8) whereby He writes His Law upon the Heart and Mind beside the forgiveness of sin and transgressions. I believe Christ Jesus is the incarnate Son of God as the WORD made flesh, and the son of man born of the virgin Mary conceived of the Holy Spirit: I believe Christ Jesus Lived a perfect life for us as a living sacrifice as well as a pattern of the Sanctified newness of life a believer has in Him, I believe Christ Jesus died a cursed death on the Cross for His people of Covenant who are sinners, and I believe in Christ Jesus who Resurrected with power from Death from the grave to Justify the offenders. This is the same Jesus who is indeed the Son of David and king of Israel, who is both LORD and Christ over all the kings and dominions of the earth! In the fullness of time YHWH will regather his people under the Head of the Church, Jesu(s) Christ to affect his will according to the Lord's prayer, Psalm 2, 8 and 110 as well as Genesis 1:26. The focus of my administration of the Gospel is like unto my Lord's who said "I have come not but for the lost sheep of the house of Israel.."(Mathew 15:24), and so I have come to my European kinsman according to the flesh. It is my mission to show the Israel of God the Salvation which is taught by Scripture Alone and offered in all ages by Grace Alone through Faith Alone in the work of Christ Alone to the Glory of GOD Alone. As a modern day Puritan separatist it is my goal to purify the church of Christ with Faith heretofore stated. I am studying to show my self approved, if you have any questions just ask!
