Psalm 121: The Creator's Religion
"The firstborn of every creature: For by Him were all things created, that are in Heaven, and that are in Earth ... He is the Head of the body, the church: Who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead"
A plain statement of reality for those who have the wisdom and humility to accept it in place of their man-made religions (see The Identity Of The LORD God) - including those who use Christ's Name for their self-worshiping idolatry (see Will Jesus Christ Obey Your Christian Religion?):
"1:12 Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:
When the Messiah returned to Heaven after His Sacrifice (see What Happened When The Messiah Arrived In Heaven? and The Christian Day Of Atonement: Past, Present and Future), He appeared before the Throne of God for Judgment of the task of Creation and Redemption that the Father had given to Him (see Who Sits At The Right Hand Of God?).
"5:9 And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; 5:10 And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.
The completion of the LORD God's Work will facilitate the Kingdom of God on Earth in which the Church will have succeeded in its purpose (see What's The Expiration Date Of The Church?).
"21:1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. 21:2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 21:3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. 21:4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away." (Revelation 21:1-4 KJV)
The Psalms are as much a "Gospel Book" as any other in the Holy Bible. The origin and the destination of the "church" (a word that literally means those who come out of the ways of the world to truly follow and obey the LORD) is recorded and prophesied throughout them (see David's View From The Cross and The LORD Is My Shepherd).
"121:1 A Song of degrees [see also A Song Of Degrees].
Fact Finder: When did the true Christian Holy Days originate? How were they created as living prophecies of the Jesus Christ?
