I get so excited when I find something I’ve never seen before in The Word! Honestly, The Bible is the most adventurous, mysterious book one can ever read. This little miracle happened the other day as I was spending some time in personal worship (aka “quiet time”) – I was reading Bob Sorge’s book, The Secret of the Secret Place. A reference to Psalm 110 got me digging.
Got me unwrapping.
And, it is pure gold.
The LORD said to my Lord, “Sit at My right hand, till I make Your enemies Your footstool.” The LORD shall send the rod of Your strength out of Zion…therefore He shall lift up the head. from Psalm 110.verses 1,2,7
Take careful note to the letters in the word lord. When you see LORD, with a big L and smaller, still capitalized, ORD, that is a reference to:
God, Jehovah, The Self-existent One, Eternal
When you see Lord, it is a reference to:
Adoni, Sovereign, Lord, Master
In other words, JESUS!
Now, here is the GOLD: David, by the inspiration of Holy Spirit writes, God, Jehovah, The Self-existent One, The Eternal One, says to Adoni, Sovereign Lord, Master, JESUS, “You will sit at My right hand until I make Your enemies Your footstool.”
Approximately one-thousand years before Jesus Christ (Lord) was born, God, through king David, prophesied Himself and announced the Messiah’s reign.
Does that get you as excited as it gets me?
Pure Gold, I tell you.
