Psalm 92: Before Abraham Was, I AM
"For by Him were all things created ... He is the Head of the body, the church ... having made peace through the blood of His cross, by Him to reconcile all things unto Himself"
The "Word of God," Who was "the LORD God" of the Exodus, was born as the man known as Jesus of Nazareth. The historic record of the Holy Scriptures clearly document it. The Messiah also plainly stated it.
"8:57 Then said the Jews unto him, Thou art not yet fifty years old, and hast thou seen Abraham?
"1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 1:2 The same was in the beginning with God. 1:3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. ... 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth." (John 1:1-2,14 KJV)
The Father sent the LORD God to do the actual Work of Creation (see The Kingdom Of The LORD God and The Christian Universe). When the Work was completed, the LORD, Who was later born as Jesus Christ, created His one and only Christian Sabbath Day (see The Christian Work Days, The Christian Sabbath).
"2:1 Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. 2:2 And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. 2:3 And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made." (Genesis 2:1-3 KJV)
True Christians have known and understood that the LORD God, Who was born as Jesus Christ, was the One sent to do the Work. Anyone who reads and respects the Word of God (dual meaning intended; see What Does Word of God Mean To You?) knows that simple fact: "For by Him were all things created ... He is the Head of the body, the church ... having made peace through the blood of His cross, by Him to reconcile all things unto Himself."
"1:12 Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: 1:13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: 1:14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:
While any or all of the Psalms are appropriate for the LORD's Sabbath Day (see Why Observe The True Sabbath?), Psalm 92 is prefaced as "A Psalm or Song for the Sabbath day."
"92:1 A Psalm or Song for the sabbath day.
Fact Finder: When will the true Christian Church have fulfilled its purpose?
This Day In History, February 22
705: Empress Wu Zetian abdicated the throne of China, thereby restoring the Tang Dynasty (see also Gog and Magog).
896: Germanic King Arnulf was crowned Emperor by Pope Formosus, who later declared Lambert deposed (see also The Holy Roman Empire Of The German Nation).
1349: Jews (see also Jews - Three Tribes and Three Meanings) were expelled from Zurich, Switzerland.
1370: Robert II succeeded his uncle, David II, as King of Scotland, beginning the Stuart dynasty.
1512: Italian explorer Amerigo Vespucci died at age 61. "America" (i.e. the continents of North America and South America where numerous American nations exist, from the northern border of Canada, to the southern tip of Argentina) was derived from his first name. In reality, no single nation is America - imagine if, for example, the people of Germany called themselves the Europeans, or if they claimed that Germany alone was Europe. See also Thanksgiving In History and Prophecy for the maps of the voyages of Christopher Columbus who actually only "discovered" the islands of the Caribbean Sea.
1630: Native Americans (who were called "Indians" by early European explorers who thought that they had arrived in India) introduced popcorn to British colonists in North America.
1632: Galileo's Dialogue Concerning the Two Chief World Systems was published. Galileo correctly believed that the Earth orbits the sun - which nearly got him executed by the Church of Rome that incorrectly taught that the sun orbits the Earth.
1797: The last invasion of Britain occurred when 1,500 French troops landed at Fishguard, in Wales.
1825: Britain and Russia established the Alaska-Canada boundary. The U.S. purchased Alaska from Russia in 1867.
1862: In Richmond, Virginia, Jefferson Davis was inaugurated as President of the breakaway "Confederate States of America."
1911: The Parliament of Canada voted to keep Canada as a member state within the union of the British Empire (later known as the British Commonwealth).
1913: Francisco Madero, revolutionary President of Mexico, was assassinated by the military, along with Vice-President Pino Suarez.
1958: Egypt and Syria joined to form the short-lived United Arab Republic (Bible prophecy does plainly describes a united Arab confederation, in the past, and in the yet future - see Constantine's Crusades In History And Prophecy).
1979: The Caribbean island of Saint Lucia gained full independence from Britain after 165 years. It became the 40th member state of the British Commonwealth.
1980: Israel introduced its new currency, the shekel. It replaced the Israeli pound (see also Israel In History and Prophecy: Israel Of Judah).
1984: The U.S. and Britain sent warships to the Persian Gulf in support of the Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein following an Iranian offensive against Iraq. At the time, Saddam Hussein was viewed as an ally of the western democracies, despite the atrocities and war crimes that he was committing then, no different than he was later when he had gone from being a pro-western "good dictator" to an anti-western "bad dictator."
1997: Scientists in Scotland announced that an adult sheep named Dolly had been successfully cloned.
