Sabbath Day April 21, 2012 – Psalm 92 – A Song for The Sabbath

It is the LORD’S Day, the seventh day; the holy (set apart) day from creation. Today is the day we are commanded to rest from our labors, and meet with Him in a holy (set apart) convocation.  David wrote Psalm 92 as a song for YHWH’S Sabbath. Reflecting on the work of His Creator, David realized just what Yah had accomplished, in him and for him. David begins the Psalm by giving thanks to the only One worthy, and then praising Yah’s name with instruments of music. He declares the infinite worth of Elohim, and acknowledges all that Yah has done for him. David knows what Sabbath is all about. It was given to Him, and to all of Yah’s creation – a gift of rest from his labors, just as our Creator rested/ceased from His labor after the 6th day of creation. Yah himself acknowledged that what He had created was good. It was perfect. His 6 days of creation, which included the gift of life to us, was all that we needed to live before Him. He gave food, a perfect environment, perfect fellowship between man and woman, with their Creator. He gave clear Torah/Instruction that the fellowship might not be broken as they walked as He instructed. And His Torah was not burdensome. But man spurned the gift. Realize that the gift of Sabbath includes the 6 days of creation.

What YHWH created, and instructed was not good enough for Adam and Eve. Eve resorted to adding to what was instructed, and was deceived by the serpent. Adam chose to listen to the voice of his wife and willfully disobey the Torah/Instruction of YHWH.

David realizes that we all still have that same rebellious nature of unbelief in each of us, even today.

I’ve included the entire Psalm below for you to read. Pay close attention to David’s gladness for what our Creator has done. He gave all that David needed at creation. David remembers that when he remembers the holy (set apart) Sabbath of the LORD.  David sings praises for joy at what YHWH has done. He did it all in those 6 days of creation, and then He did no more work. It was complete.

YHWH has not added to nor taken away from what He established, and who He is, at any time. And neither should we. But Eve added to what He said, while Adam took away. Eve was deceived because of the addition to what the Spirit of Truth had said, and Adam willfully sinned, disobeying the direct commandment, given to Him by His Creator. He removed the Voice of Truth from his hearing and replaced the True Voice with his wife’s voice. David recognized that this fallen state was in every man born of Adam, as did Paul. Through the first Adam, because of his willful disobedience, death came to all of his descendants/seed. But through the second Adam, Messiah Yeshua, came life to all who believe in Him. He is the very Spirit of Truth that spoke to Adam in the Garden of Eden. David knew Him. He spoke to David. David’s Psalm 92 is acknowledging his relationship with his Creator, remembering what He did and gave, and choosing to walk in the Truth of Torah.

David knows that the knowledge of GOD/Elohim, the Father/YHWH, the Son/Yeshua, and the Holy (set apart) Spirit of Truth/Spirit of Messiah, is only found in what the Creator established and gave in six days of creation, and continues to speak throughout time. And that knowledge is only accurate when there is no additions to or subtractions from what He gave and instructed. But, David writes, a senseless man has no knowledge of the deep thoughts of YHWH. He says that a stupid man cannot understand Him or what He has done and said. And these wicked people who ignore the clear gift, given by Yah in six days of creation, and the gift of His Sabbath rest will be destroyed forevermore. When we understand that David’s Psalm is about Sabbath we have to acknowledge that the precedent that was set from the very first people created, our foreparents, Adam and Eve, is that they died for their wickedness in adding to and subtracting from what GOD said to them. Today the professing bride of Messiah/The Spirit of Truth, adds a pagan day as the sabbath unto the LORD, in the first day of the week, a work day of our Creator and given to us as a work day. And the His professing bride takes away His Sabbath and spurns His perfect gift. For in six days He created and rested on the seventh/Sabbath Day, and commanded us to do so as well, remembering His perfect work of creation, for us! Consider this as you read this Psalm. Are you following the way of the first Adam, or are you, by grace through faith, in the power of the Spirit of Messiah/Truth, following the Second Adam, the sinless Creator, Yeshua Messiah. He is the same as He has been since the beginning and He is the ancient of days, who lives outside of our time space continuum, The Self Existent One/YHWH. He is GOD! Whose voice will you hear?

 

A Psalm, a Song for the Sabbath day.

1It is good to give thanks to the LORD
And to sing praises to Your name, O Most High;

2To declare Your lovingkindness in the morning
And Your faithfulness by night,

3With the ten-stringed lute and with the harp,
With resounding music upon the lyre.

4For You, O LORD, have made me glad by what You have done,
I will sing for joy at the works of Your hands.

5How great are Your works, O LORD!
Your thoughts are very deep.

6A senseless man has no knowledge,
Nor does a stupid man understand this:

7That when the wicked sprouted up like grass
And all who did iniquity flourished,
It was only that they might be destroyed forevermore.

8But You, O LORD, are on high forever.

9For, behold, Your enemies, O LORD,
For, behold, Your enemies will perish;
All who do iniquity will be scattered.

10But You have exalted my horn like that of the wild ox;
I have been anointed with fresh oil.

11And my eye has looked exultantly upon my foes,
My ears hear of the evildoers who rise up against me.

12The righteous man will flourish like the palm tree,
He will grow like a cedar in Lebanon.

13Planted in the house of the LORD,
They will flourish in the courts of our God.

14They will still yield fruit in old age;
They shall be full of sap and very green,

15To declare that the LORD is upright;
He is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in Him.

About Banner Kidd

I am not a traditional Christian. I believe and desire to be obedient, by grace through faith, all of the Scripture from Genesis to Revelation. I believe that many people have been turned away from the Truth of the Gospel by traditional Christianity, because of the disconnect between their beliefs and practices from what is written in the Scriptures they purport to believe. I was one of them. I am now on a journey to know the Truth. Yahshua said "You shall know the Truth and it will set you free." I have been born again since November 23rd, 1987. I was saved when I was 32 years old. I was married then, with two daughters. Since then my wife and I have added another daughter and a son to our family, and we have two grandsons. Many changes have marked my faith journey. The more I read what is written on the pages, seek to understand it in the context it was written, by the power of the Set Apart Spirit, the more I see how far off track mankind has drifted from His Creator. This blog site has been a record of my journey. If you take the time to read the many posts on here over the years you will see some of the change. I have changed. My cultural heritage is in East Kentucky, where I was born. My family moved to Kendallville, IN in 1965, near my 10th birthday. I have been a musician since I was around thirteen years old. I earned my first money for performance when I was fifteen years old. I began playing professionally when I was around nineteen years old. Primarily in the country music scene, up until I left music for a season in 1987, I played in bands that did shows with some of major artists in the country field of the day. I haven't played in as many bands as a lot of musicians do, since the bands I played in, for the most part, had longevity. Those who know me might remember me in a rock band based in Kendallville in the mid seventies called Flint. In the late seventies I played in The DJ Band, staff band at DJ Country-Buck Lake Ranch. From 1981 until 1987 I was one of the founding members of The Stone County Band, with Mickey Jo Slone. I left music in 1987 for a few years. In 1993 I went to work for Sweetwater Studios in Fort Wayne, IN. I left in 1997 and had my own audio-video production company until 2000. From 2000-2007 I managed a trio of Christian radio stations, doing the morning show and a 1st Day (called sunday) talk show. In 2007 I returned to Sweetwater Studios where I am still employed. I am a jingle writer, songwriter, project manager, and studio sales representative. I am an elder at Messiah Fellowship in Howe, IN where I serve in the worship ministry. I have recently completed a 5 song EP and in the process of producing an autobiographical audio book. Thanks for stopping by. If there is ever anything I can do for you, please don't hesitate to let me know. I can be reached via e-mail. Banner Kidd bfkidd@torahperspective.com
