Through The Years

Psalm 90:1-9

1 Lord, thou hast been our dwelling place in all generations.

2 Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God.

3 Thou turnest man to destruction; and sayest, Return, ye children of men.

4 For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night.

5 Thou carriest them away as with a flood; they are as a sleep: in the morning they are like grass which groweth up.

6 In the morning it flourisheth, and groweth up; in the evening it is cut down, and withereth.

7 For we are consumed by thine anger, and by thy wrath are we troubled.

8 Thou hast set our iniquities before thee, our secret sins in the light of thy countenance.

9 For all our days are passed away in thy wrath: we spend our years as a tale that is told.

How many tonight realize that God’s ways are timeless?

God does not change because we think that He should.

God is still the same as He was yesterday, today and will be tomorrow.

Moses is saying in verse one of our text that the Lord is our dwelling place and it is that way to all generations.

This is the same as “in Him we live and move, and have our being.”

28 For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, for we are also his offspring.

29 Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man’s device.

30 And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent:

We are the offspring of God in him we live, and move, and have our being;

In other words, we are to look to God for everything.

Verse two says that before the mountains were brought forth, or ever before you formed the Earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting you are God.

There are those who try to pass through life on their own strength and find that it is a way of labor and sorrow.

Those who learn to lean on the arm of Adonai, which is another name for God, will find it a way of joy and rejoicing, even while they are in the wilderness.

The second verse speaks of the creation; the third verse speaks of the fall.

God gave man a choice of eating of the tree of knowledge of good and evil or not.

They were told not to, but if they did they would suffer the consequence, which was eternal death.

Ge 2:17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

The latter part of this verse was an appeal for man to return to God.

Psalm 90:4

4 For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night.

Man should look at eternity as God looks at eternity. In other words, we should base our actions on the eternal, instead of the temperal.

The sad thing is the majority of the world sells out for the temperal.

A thousand years is not a long time when you look at the eternal, forever and ever.

Psalm 90:5

5 Thou carriest them away as with a flood; they are as a sleep: in the morning they are like grass which groweth up.

1. Verse 2 speaks of the creation.

2. Verse 3 speaks of the fall.

3. Verse 5 speaks of Noahs flood.

In it’s broader meaning, it speaks of death as a flood.

It speaks of life as grass which flourishes for a short while and then is gone.

Isa 59:19 So shall they fear the name of the LORD from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him.

Psalm 90:6

6 In the morning it flourisheth, and groweth up; in the evening it is cut down, and withereth.

This is the way that the Holy Spirit describes mans’ life.

Psalm 90:7

7 For we are consumed by thine anger, and by thy wrath are we troubled.

The anger and wrath mentioned here speaks of the curse that God placed on the human race because of the fall.

God cannot abide in any sin at all.
