Even though this study is not scheduled to be posted until Monday, events are unfolding in Paris, this Friday evening, as I begin writing. Regardless of the evil that forces its way into this world, when it is all said and done, those who belong to Christ will not only have the last say, but also the last and best song of victory, to sing in their heart.
The song, is one of victory and celebration.
This is a song of recognition of Christ, in reference to a holy feast.
The Jewish feasts typically began at sunset, or about 6 PM. As the Jewish day began at 6 PM and ended at 6 PM the next evening. Our current calendar has a days beginning and ending at twelve midnight.
The feasts are rituals and celebrations of worship, focusing on the Messiah, who is Jesus Christ, and Gods overall plan and design. And, of bringing truth and understanding, through Bible doctrine, and the development of the individual spiritual life, resulting in the gladness of heart, otherwise known as spiritual maturity and the peace and contentment that results.
The mountain of the Lord, refers to the vastness of truth that is contained in, and available through, Bible doctrine.
And the Rock of Israel is the one true God, and Messiah, and Savior, namely Jesus Christ.
God’s grace is often times referred to using the symbolism of music. This is described in the Psalms, as the music plays on, and thus regardless of the circumstances and events of this world, God’s grace, and God’s plan continue on unhindered and uninterrupted.
To follow the sound of the flute, to the mountain of God, is to follow His grace provision, through faith, as one advances within their spiritual life to their completeness, and the fulfillment of each individual’s meaning and purpose in life.
The world is full of evil, and it will remain so until the end of human history.
Thus we have Bible doctrine, and the promise of ultimate deliverance and victory. And evil, will eventually be erased from existence.
