A

great video about

Psalm 45

The King and his Bride

From the video above with my additions:

This is a Messianic Psalm because part of it is about Jesus.

We know it is about Jesus because part of it is quoted in Hebrews 1:8-9, and Hebrews says it is about Jesus.

In this psalm, we read about the marriage of an earthly king and his bride. We do not know who the king was.

We also see....
Jesus - the Bridegroom King ... and the church - The Bride of Christ.

Note: Psalm 45:16 refers to the earthly king -  not to Jesus.


Next,

Clarifying some points about Psalm 45

Tuesday - Is Meekness Good or Bad?

Wednesday - The Bride of Christ

Thursday - Jesus is God.  Jesus is the Word. 

            Scriptures about the Trinity.

Topic:

Is Meekness a Good Thing or a Bad Thing?

-

Psalm 45:4

is a

Meekness verse.

It says...

" In your majesty

ride out victoriously for the cause of truth and

meekness and righteousness;

let your right hand teach you

awesome deeds! "


The Bible definition of  "meek" is the opposite of 

 weak....

It is

Strength under control.


Jesus is

All POWERFUL.


The Bible says Jesus was meek....

~

In Matthew 11:29 a KJV 

Jesus says,

"Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me:

for I am 

meek and lowly in heart."


Jesus obeyed every deed

that Father God

called him to do

no matter what his flesh wanted.


He was never weak.


Let's learn more about 

MEEKNESS.

Concerning the video above:

These are the words in the text box of the video...

The world thinks of meekness as weak and timid, but biblically nothing could be further from the truth. Meekness, in God's eyes is tremendous power under control. Those who are meek - willingly seek and submit to God's will, put the needs of others before their own desires, are unpretentious, teachable, calm, and self-controlled. They yield their rights and are never defensive, yet speak up for others in the face of injustice. They rely on the Holy Spirit for the power to speak calmly, act gently, and bow humbly before God.

Wednesday

Psalm 45 talks about

The Bride of Christ.


Topics for Today

are

both

about

The Bride

1. Leave & Cleave (Psalm 45:10)

and

2. Wash with the Water of the Word

waterfall

In Psalm 45:9 and the verses following,

we see the Bride of Christ.

(I will talk about "leave & cleave" further down the page.)


bride-of-christ

Ephesians 5:26-27

says the Word of God washes the

Bride of Christ.

Jesus is the Word of God.

The Bride allows the water

of the Word to wash her.



In some respects,

she is viewed as washing herself

with the Word of God.

For example, Isaiah 1:16.

Isaiah-Bible

When you

Give your Life

to Jesus

you become the

Bride of Christ.

Men and Women are the Bride of Christ.

Each Bride's "assignment" from God

is to

"cleave" to God

and

allow his Word

to wash

him or her and

to purify

him or her

and

make

him or her

more like Jesus.


The Bride of Christ cleaves to Jesus
just as
an earthly man and woman cleave in marriage.

bible-clip-art

Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother,

and shall cleave unto his wife:

Genesis 2:24 a KJV

Verses about cleaving to God...

Deuteronomy 10:20 KJV

Thou shalt fear the Lord thy God; him shalt thou serve, and to him shalt thou cleave, and swear by his name.

Deuteronomy 13:4 KJV

Ye shall walk after the Lord your God, and fear him, and keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and ye shall serve him, and cleave unto him.

Also see Deuteronomy 4:4.

insights-bible

As the Bride of Christ,

our assignment

is to read the Word of God

and

allow it to wash us and make us more like Jesus.

Ephesians 5:25-27 KJV

says,

" Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;

26 That he [Jesus] might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,

27 That he [Jesus]  might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing;
but that it should be holy and without blemish."


Bible-ephesians


Ephesians 5:26-27
teaches us that the Bible washes us.

When we read the Bible with a teachable heart,
the words
will renew our mind
and
change our incorrect thinking.

We will begin to turn away
from sinful things
and
follow Jesus more closely.

We will see the importance of obeying.

Our interest in the world will fade and our interest
in godly things will increase.



Washing

is

Reading the Word and Obeying It.


Other Washing Verses


Isaiah 1:16 KJV

Wash you, make you clean;
put away the evil of your doings
from before mine eyes;
cease to do evil.

Revelation 19:7-8 KJV

Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come,
and his wife hath made herself ready.

And to her was granted that she should be arrayed
in fine linen, clean and white:
for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.

See also James 4:8.

Topics for Today

1. Jesus is God

2. The Trinity

3. Jesus is The Word


# 1

Jesus is God.

In Psalm 45 verse 6,

we read that Jesus IS God.

In verse 7, we see that Jesus is WITH Father God.

Further down the page,
I will present more Bible verses explaining that Jesus IS God.


The Trinity wasn't clear to the Old Testament people.

But for us, we can look back and see it clearly in passages

in the Old Testament.

The Trinity

Psalm 45 is an example of two parts of the Trinity:

Father God and Jesus who is God

Below

are some other Trinity verses.


Genesis 1:26  "Let Us make man in Our image."

Proverbs 30:4b  "What is His name, and what is His Son's name, If you know?"

Matthew 3:16  "When He [Jesus] had been baptized, Jesus came up immediately from the water; and behold, the heavens were opened to Him, and He saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting upon Him, And suddenly a voice came from heaven, saying, 'This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.'"

Matthew 28:19 Jesus said:

"'Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.' Amen."

1 John 5:7  "For there are three that bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one."

which has several videos

to help you better grasp

the idea of a God who is three in one.

# 3

 John 1:1-2 reveals that Jesus is called

The Word of God.

The verse also reveals that

Jesus IS God - 

And that Jesus is WITH God.


We read in John 1:1-2...

In the beginning was the Word,

and the Word was with God,

and the Word was God.

He was in the beginning with God.

These two verses

show (as did Psalm 45) two parts of the Trinity.

To understand what it means for

Jesus to be the Word of God,

it helps to

remind ourselves

that when Jesus was on earth,

his words WERE the Words of God.

~

We will not understand

the full implications of Jesus being

The Word of God

in this life.
