In Thy majesty
Psalms 45:4-5 says, And in Thy majesty ride prosperously because of truth and meekness and righteousness; and Thy right hand shall teach Thee terrible things. Thine arrows are sharp in the heart of the kings enemies; whereby the people fall under Thee. In talking about majesty there are 3 things associated with majesty: truth, meekness, and righteousness. What is the difference between glory and majesty? Glory has to do with a shadow or a brightness as the stars which reveal the prescence of God. Majesty has to do with not just something splendorous but a powerful mighty splendor. The word majesty bespeaks of a king on His throne ruling his dominion in truth, meekness, and righteousness. Without truth, meekness, and righteousness there is no majesty.
These 3 qualities: truth, meekness, and righteousness, describe Christ Jesus the king of kings. What is truth? Jesus said in John 14:6, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. Grace and truth came by Jesus Christ. The Word of God is true. Let God be true and every man a liar.
What is meekness? To be meek means to be poor and humble. To be meek means to make your boast in the LORD Christ Jesus. Meekness is associated with repentance of sin and with doing the will of God and not your own will. Psalms 37:11 says, But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.
What is righteousness? Righteousness means what is just. It means justice: a just balance, a just weight, mercy and judgment: the cross of Jesus Christ. 2 Corinthians 5:21 says, For He hath made Him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him. Righteousness is Christ having fulfilled the law, lived without sin, died on the cross for our sins, judged for our sins, suffered for our sins, becoming sin for us, being separated from God, and rising from the grave. This is righteousness. Christ is righteous. To have Christ in your heart is to have righteousness.
Psalms 45:4 says, And in Thy majesty ride prosperously because of truth and meekness and righteousness; and Thy right hand shall teach Thee terrible things. I speak of the things which I have made touching Christ Jesus the king of kings and His eternal majesty. One of the names of God is The Majesty on High. Truth, meekeness, and righteousness are qualities of majesty.
Who are these that go forth prosperously and swiftly on a white horse of judgment, power and majesty in the same manner that Christ will after He girds His sword upon His thigh and goes forth to judge the nations of the earth? These are they who do bdsm with truth, meekness, and righteousness: behold, dominion, salvation and majesty through Christ!
Psalms 45:4 says, And in Thy majesty ride prosperously because of truth and meekness and righteousness; and Thy right hand shall teach Thee terrible things. There is no majesty like the terrible majesty of Christ. The word terrible here is a word that means fear and awe. The use of the right hand symbolizes to do things with all the might. Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do do with all thy might.
Exodus 15:11 says, Who is like unto thee, O LORD, among the gods? Who is like Thee, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders? Hebrews 1:1-4 says, God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets. Hath in these last days spoken unto us by His Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also He made the worlds; Who being the brightness of His glory, and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on High. Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.
Joel 2:31, The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the LORD come. The word terrible is used even in reference to the time of the great tribulation.
Jude 1:25, To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.
Psalms chapter 45:4 says, And in Thy majesty ride prosperously because of truth and meekness and righteousness; and Thy right hand shall teach Thee terrible things. There has been tremendous opposition and injustice against those in this world who love the truth of Gods Word. Even in this age of grace, for grace those who love Christ and the gospel have suffered so much because of a world filled with strangers. The day is coming however, the great and terrible day of the LORD when Christ shall shake the nations in His just wrath. The strength of the King loveth judgment. The day is coming, after the twinking of an eye, when Christ shall gird His sword upon His thigh and open the book and ride out prosperously because of truth and meekness and righteousness; and His right shall teach terrible things.
Revelation chapter 5:1-10 says, And I saw in the right hand of Him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals. And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof? And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon. And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon. And one of the elders saith to me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof. And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth. And He came and took the book out of the right hand of Him that sat upon the throne. And when He had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints. And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for Thou was slain, and hast redeemed us to God by Thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.
Through the majesty of Christ there can always be a new song sung. To go forth prosperously in that which you strive to do for Jesus Christ requires only 3 things: truth, meekness, and righteousness because it is about the grace of God and not our own sinfulness. The terrible wonders you will learn, the terrible things your own hands will teach you when your hands are guided by Christ. One of the Names of Christ is the Root. Think of an Acacia tree when you think of the Root. The Root and the Branch. The One who will gird His sword upon His thigh; the One who will teach you terrible things is Christ Jesus for only Christ is worthy to open the book.
Jeremiah 8:6, As the horse rusheth
into battle. In thy majesty ride
prosperously. A Christian soldier, a king and a priest, needs truth,
righteousness and meekness to ride forth prosperously into battle. Turn from
your sins to Jesus Christ and learn the terrible wonders of the mysteries of
