THE THEME OF MY PRAISE - BBC FAMILY AND FRIENDS DAY SEPT. 16, 2007 PS. 22:22-24

PSALM 22:22-24   22 I WILL DECLARE YOUR NAME TO MY BRETHREN; IN THE MIDST OF THE ASSEMBLY I WILL PRAISE YOU.  23 YOU WHO FEAR THE LORD, PRAISE HIM! ALL YOU DESCENDANTS OF JACOB, GLORIFY HIM, AND FEAR HIM, ALL YOU OFFSPRING OF ISRAEL!  24 FOR HE HAS NOT DESPISED NOR ABHORRED THE AFFLICTION OF THE AFFLICTED; NOR HAS HE HIDDEN HIS FACE FROM HIM; BUT WHEN HE CRIED TO HIM, HE HEARD.

INTRO: WHAT DIFFERENCE WOULD YOUR LIFE…

TAKE IF YOU COULD SEE THE DAY YOU WERE BORN

WHAT WOULD LIFE BE LIKE IF YOU COULD TURN BACK THE HANDS OF TIME

AND SEE THE DAY YOU TOOK YOUR FIRST BREATH

YOU TOOK YOUR FIRST DRINK OF MOTHER’S MILK

YOU TOOK YOUR FIRST STEPS IN WALKING

YOUR FIRST DAY IN SCHOOL

YOUR FIRST REPORT CARD

YOUR FIST JOB AND PROMOTION

YOUR FIRST LOVE AND FIRST KISS

YOUR FIRST CRISIS…

WHAT WOULD LIKE BE LIKE IF YOU COULD YOUR DAYS COMING TO AN END.

YOUR STEPS SLOWING

YOUR HAIR GRAYING

YOUR EYE SIGHT DIMMING

YOUR REACH FAILING

YOUR LAST MOMENTS, MINUTES

YOUR LAST BREATH….

IN PS. 22 KING DAVID RECORDS WHAT KING JESUS EXPERIENCES….THE DEATH ON THE CROSS….

EXPL: THIS PSALM 22 IS APART OF A TRIAD OF PS.

PS 22 – SUFFERING SERVANT

PS 23 – SHEPHERD AS SAVIOR

PS 24 –SOVEREIGN AS KING

IT IS A MESSIANIC PSALM OF THE CROSS OF CHRIST

IT IS DIVIDED INTO THREE PARTS; THE FIRST LINE WHICH IS MOST FAMILIAR;
“MY GOD, MY GOD…WHY HAST  THOU FORSAKEN ME...

HERE THEME IS THAT OF

DEATH…

SUFFERING

TORMENT

INSULTS

MOCKERY

SLANDER

DISGRACE

CHARACTER ASSIGNATION

1000 YRS BEFORE CHRIST WENT TO THE CROSS…CHRIST SAW AND RECORDED BY INSPIRATION OF THE HOLY SPIRIT …HIS DEATH.

ON THE CROSS OUR SAVIOR IS SEEN…SUFFERING

SPIRITUALLY v. 1-5

PERSONALLY v 6-13

PHYSICALLY v 14-18

IT IS A PSALM FULL OF PAIN…V. 1-21…PAIN, PERIL, BUT IN V. 22 IS THE FULLFILLMENT OF PROMISE…   BETWEEN V. 21-22 …THERE IS RESURRECTION..

PROP: THE LESSON IS THAT PAIN AND PERIL CAN GIVE WAY TO PRAISE.

INTER: WHAT WAS THE THEME OF DAVID’S PRAISE?

TS: AS WE LOOK AT THIS PSALM WE WILL SEE THE IMPORTANCE OF OUR PRAISE.

WHAT WAS THE THEME OF DAVID’S PRAISE?

I.  THE THEME OF HIS PRAISE WAS …”HIS NAME”. V. 22

I WILL DECLARE YOUR NAME TO MY BROTHERS ;

I WILL TELL OF YOUR NAME

I WILL TESTIFY OF YOUR NAME

I WILL SHARE WHO YOU ARE AND WHAT’ YOU’VE DONE TO MY PEOPLE.

IMP. THE TONE OF THE TEXT..IS THAT OF AN ACCOUNTING TERM…OF CENSUS…NUMBERING..AND RECOUNTING WHO GOD IS AND WHAT GOD HAS DONE…

GOD STILL HEARS AND ANSWERS PRAYER

TEXT POINTS IS TO MOSES….HE HEARD THE PRAYERS OF THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL..CALLED MOSES TO GO TO PHARAOH TO LET MY PEOPLE GOD. THE QUEST ION CAME..WHO DO I SAY SENT ME….

GOD TOLD MOSES TO TELL THEM….

EXODUS 3:11-15  11 BUT MOSES SAID TO GOD, "WHO AM I THAT I SHOULD GO TO PHARAOH, AND THAT I SHOULD BRING THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL OUT OF EGYPT?"  12 SO HE SAID, "I WILL CERTAINLY BE WITH YOU. AND THIS SHALL BE A SIGN TO YOU THAT I HAVE SENT YOU: WHEN YOU HAVE BROUGHT THE PEOPLE OUT OF EGYPT, YOU SHALL SERVE GOD ON THIS MOUNTAIN."  13 THEN MOSES SAID TO GOD, "INDEED, WHEN I COME TO THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL AND SAY TO THEM, 'THE GOD OF YOUR FATHERS HAS SENT ME TO YOU,' AND THEY SAY TO ME, 'WHAT IS HIS NAME?' WHAT SHALL I SAY TO THEM?"  14 AND GOD SAID TO MOSES, "I AM WHO I AM." AND HE SAID, "THUS YOU SHALL SAY TO THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL, 'I AM HAS SENT ME TO YOU.' "  15 MOREOVER GOD SAID TO MOSES, "THUS YOU SHALL SAY TO THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL: 'THE LORD GOD OF YOUR FATHERS, THE GOD OF ABRAHAM, THE GOD OF ISAAC, AND THE GOD OF JACOB, HAS SENT ME TO YOU. THIS IS MY NAME FOREVER, AND THIS IS MY MEMORIAL TO ALL GENERATIONS.'

APP: AND WE GIVE GOD PRAISE PERSONALLY FOR ANSWERED PRAYER.

AND MY PERSONAL PRAISE WILL EXTEND TO MY FAMILY; MY BRO. AND SISTERS.

AND IT’S GOOD TO ATTACH HIS NAME TO WHAT HE HAS DONE…IN PRIVATE AND IT WILL SPILL OVER IN TO THE PUBLIC ARENA…

PRAISE HIS NAME….

ILL: THERE ARE TWO HUNDRED AND FIFTY-SIX NAMES GIVEN IN THE BIBLE FOR THE LORD JESUS CHRIST, AND I SUPPOSE THIS WAS BECAUSE HE WAS INFINITELY BEYOND ALL THAT ANY ONE NAME COULD EXPRESS.

ILL; SIS. SARAH COULDN’T HOLD HER PRAISE ANY MORE…..BLANKET OR NO BLANKET PRAISE THE LORD..

MP. THE THEME OF HIS PRAISE WAS HIS GLORY V. 23.

NKJ PSALM 22:23 YOU WHO FEAR THE LORD, PRAISE HIM! ALL YOU DESCENDANTS OF JACOB, GLORIFY HIM, AND FEAR HIM, ALL YOU OFFSPRING OF ISRAEL!

NLT PSALM 22:23 PRAISE THE LORD, ALL YOU WHO FEAR HIM! HONOR HIM, ALL YOU DESCENDANTS OF JACOB! SHOW HIM REVERENCE, ALL YOU DESCENDANTS OF ISRAEL!

ALL THE PEOPLE ARE CALLED TO GIVE HIM PRAISE AND GLORY

OT – TABERNACLE – THE MEETING PLACE OF GOD WHERE HIS GLORY DESCENDED; AND  UPON THE MT. OF WORSHIP WHERE MOSES REQUESTED TO SEE HIS GLORY.

THE TEMPLE-SOLOMON’S DEDICATION WHEN THE SHEKINAH GLORY FILLED THE HOUSE.

NT – GLORY AT HIS BIRTH – GLORY TO GOD IN THE HIGHTEST

GLORY AT HIS BAPTISM – WHEN THE HEAVENS OPENED AND THE SPIRIT DESCENDED..

GLORY IN HIS LIFE – THE MOUNT OF TRANSFIGURATION.

IMP. FEAR AND REVERE…BRINGS GOD’S GLORY. WE ARE ALL CALLED TO JOIN IN THE PRAISE WHICH THE SON WILL OFFER TO THE FATHER IN ETERNITY.

PSALM 8:1 <TO THE CHIEF MUSICIAN UPON GITTITH, A PSALM OF DAVID.> O LORD OUR LORD, HOW EXCELLENT IS THY NAME IN ALL THE EARTH! WHO HAST SET THY GLORY ABOVE THE HEAVENS. 2 OUT OF THE MOUTH OF BABES AND SUCKLINGS HAST THOU ORDAINED STRENGTH BECAUSE OF THINE ENEMIES, THAT THOU MIGHTEST STILL THE ENEMY AND THE AVENGER.

PSALM 19:1 <TO THE CHIEF MUSICIAN, A PSALM OF DAVID.> THE HEAVENS DECLARE THE GLORY OF GOD; AND THE FIRMAMENT SHEWETH HIS HANDYWORK.

PSALM 24:7-10   7 LIFT UP YOUR HEADS, O YOU GATES! AND BE LIFTED UP, YOU EVERLASTING DOORS! AND THE KING OF GLORY SHALL COME IN.  8 WHO IS THIS KING OF GLORY? THE LORD STRONG AND MIGHTY, THE LORD MIGHTY IN BATTLE.  9 LIFT UP YOUR HEADS, O YOU GATES! LIFT UP, YOU EVERLASTING DOORS! AND THE KING OF GLORY SHALL COME IN.  10 WHO IS THIS KING OF GLORY? THE LORD OF HOSTS, HE IS THE KING OF GLORY. SELAH

NKJ 2 CORINTHIANS 4:17 FOR OUR LIGHT AFFLICTION, WHICH IS BUT FOR A MOMENT, IS WORKING FOR US A FAR MORE EXCEEDING AND ETERNAL WEIGHT OF GLORY,

 

APPL: GIVE GOD GLORY.  RESPECT GOD AND THE THINGS OF GOD.

WE ARE TO GLORIFY GOD BY RESPONDING TO THE LORD JESUS CHRIST THROUGH EXALTING HIM AS CREATOR, SAVIOR, AND LORD, EXEMPLIFYING HIM AND THE VALUES OF HIS KINGDOM, EDIFYING HIS CHURCH, EVANGELIZING HIS WORLD, ENCOMPASSING THE PAST, ENRICHING THE CULTURE.

ILL:     IT IS FITTING AND RIGHT TO SING OF YOU, TO PRAISE YOU, TO THANK YOU, TO ADORE YOU IN ALL PLACES OF YOUR DOMINION. FOR YOU ARE THE INEFFABLE GOD, INCONCEIVABLE, INVISIBLE, INCOMPREHENSIBLE, EXISTING FOREVER AND YET EVER THE SAME, YOU AND YOUR ONLY-BEGOTTEN SON AND YOUR HOLY SPIRIT. YOU BROUGHT US INTO BEING OUT OF NOTHINGNESS, AND WHEN WE HAD FALLEN, YOU RAISED US UP AGAIN. YOU HAVE NOT CEASED DOING EVERYTHING TO LEAD US TO HEAVEN AND TO BESTOW UPON US YOUR FUTURE KINGDOM. FOR ALL THIS DO WE THANK YOU AND YOUR ONLY-BEGOTTEN SON AND YOUR HOLY SPIRIT - FOR ALL THE BENEFITS OF WHICH WE KNOW AND THOSE OF WHICH WE ARE IGNORANT, FOR THOSE THAT ARE MANIFEST TO US AND THOSE THAT LIE CONCEALED.

   WE THANK YOU ALSO FOR THIS SACRIFICE, WHICH YOU ARE PLEASED TO RECEIVE FROM OUR HANDS, EVEN THOUGH THERE STAND BEFORE YOU THOUSANDS OF ARCHANGELS AND MYRIADS OF ANGELS, CHERUBIM AND SERAPHIM, SIX-WINGED AND MANY-EYED, BORNE ALOFT ON THEIR WINGS WHO SING, PROCLAIM, CRY OUT, AND CHANT THE TRIUMPHAL HYMN:

   HOLY, HOLY, HOLY, LORD OF HOSTS! HEAVEN AND EARTH ARE FILLED WITH YOUR GLORY. HOSANNA IN THE HIGHEST! BLESSED IS HE WHO COMES IN THE NAME OF THE LORD. HOSANNA IN THE HIGHEST!     -- JOHN CHRYSOSTOM, CHRISTIAN HISTORY, NO. 44.

SEE: PS 22:23; MT 21:9

ILL” THE BURDEN THAT I WANT TO BRING TO YOU THIS MORNING IS THIS: GOD IS AN IMPORTANT PERSON, AND HE DOES NOT LIKE BEING TAKEN FOR GRANTED.

   SUPPOSE YOU ASK A MAN, A PRESIDENT OF A COMPANY, "WHO, UNDER GOD, IS THE MOST IMPORTANT PERSON IN YOUR LIFE?"

   HE SAYS, "I GUESS IT WOULD BE MY VICE-PRESIDENT FOR MARKETING."

   YOU SAY, "WHAT ABOUT YOUR WIFE?"

   HE SAYS, "OH, OF COURSE, I JUST ASSUMED THAT. I JUST TAKE THAT FOR GRANTED. IT GOES WITHOUT SAYING."

   A FEW PEOPLE WOULD ASSUME THAT HIS ABOUNDING LOVE AND RESPECT FOR HIS WIFE CAUSED HIM TO FORGET HER. MOST OF US PROBABLY WOULD ASSUME THAT THE REASON SHE DIDN'T COME TO MIND IS BECAUSE SHE'S NOT UPPERMOST IN HIS AFFECTIONS.

   THE WIFE WOULDN'T SAY, "I AM SO HONORED THAT I'M LIKE THE AIR HE BREATHES. HE NEVER GIVES ME A THOUGHT."

   THERE IS IN MOST PEOPLE'S MINDS NO DIRECT CORRELATION BETWEEN TAKING SOMETHING FOR GRANTED AND SHOWING ITS VALUE AS A TREASURE. WE CAN BE CERTAIN THE WIFE WOULD SAY, "IF I DON'T COME TO YOUR MIND WHEN YOU'RE ASKED ABOUT YOUR LIFE'S PRIORITIES, THEN IT'S BECAUSE I'M NOT IMPORTANT TO YOU. AND IF YOU THINK THAT I AM HONORED BY BEING TAKEN FOR GRANTED, YOU'RE WRONG!"

   IT'S POSSIBLE TO TAKE IMPORTANT THINGS LIKE OXYGEN FOR GRANTED. IF YOU'RE TAKEN FOR GRANTED, YOU MIGHT FEEL INDISPENSABLE. BUT NOT TREASURED OR HONORED.

   GOD IS AN IMPORTANT PERSON; HE DOES NOT LIKE BEING TAKEN FOR GRANTED .

   -- JOHN PIPER, "GOD IS AN IMPORTANT PERSON," PREACHING TODAY, TAPE NO. 125.

MP. III. THE THEME OF HIS GLORY IS …HIS FACE. V. 24

HE HAS NOT HID HIS FACE..FROM ME…

PERSON - THE FACE IS ONE TRUE SELF…HONOR THE FACE = HONOR THE PERSON; SLAP THE FACE AND WE  DISHONOR THE PERSON; FACE SYMBOLIZED OUR PERSON…

PRESENCE – FACE..MEANS BEFORE OR IN FRONT OF..WANT TO SEE THEIR FACE; WANT TO GAIN ACCEPTANCE. FACE OF MOSES SHONE BECAUSE HE WAS IN THE PRESENCE OF GOD.

FACE OF GOD IS ASSOC. WITH HIS GLORY.  MOSES WANT TO SEE GOD’S GLORY.

IMP. HERE IS THE AT FACE OF GOD SHINNG ON US IS A BLESSING

NUM 6:25 MAY THE LORD SMILE ON YOU AND BE GRACIOUS.

APP: LEARN TO FACE THE CHALLENGES OF LIFE.

ILLL: THEY MOCKED AND RAILED ON HIM AND SMOTE HIM, THEY SCOURGED AND CRUCIFIED HIM. . . . HE WAS EXECUTED BY A CORRUPT CHURCH, A TIMID POLITICIAN, AND A FICKLE PROLETARIAT LED BY PROFESSIONAL AGITATORS. HIS EXECUTIONERS MADE VULGAR JOKES ABOUT HIM, CALLED HIM FILTHY NAMES, TAUNTED HIM, SMACKED HIM IN THE FACE, FLOGGED HIM WITH THE CAT, AND HANGED HIM ON THE COMMON GIBBET-A BLOODY, DUSTY, SWEATY, AND SORDID BUSINESS. IF YOU SHOW PEOPLE THAT, THEY ARE SHOCKED. SO THEY SHOULD BE. IF THAT DOES NOT SHOCK THEM, NOTHING CAN. IF THE MERE REPRESENTATION OF IT HAS AN AIR OF IRREVERENCE, WHAT IS TO BE SAID ABOUT THE DEED?

   DOROTHY L. SAYERS (1893-1957)
