· Psalm 96
The Traditional Psalm to read is Psalm 96, but I would like to focus on verses 6-7:
Psalm 961O sing unto the LORD a new song: sing unto the LORD, all the earth.
2Sing unto the LORD, bless his name; shew forth his salvation from day to day.
3Declare his glory among the heathen, his wonders among all people.
4For the LORD is great, and greatly to be praised: he is to be feared above all gods.
5For all the gods of the nations are idols: but the LORD made the heavens.
6Honour and majesty are before him: strength and beauty are in his sanctuary.
7Give unto the LORD, O ye kindreds of the people, give unto the LORD glory and strength.
8Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name: bring an offering, and come into his courts.
9O worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness: fear before him, all the earth.
10Say among the heathen that the LORD reigneth: the world also shall be established that it shall not be moved: he shall judge the people righteously.
11Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad; let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof.
12Let the field be joyful, and all that is therein: then shall all the trees of the wood rejoice
13Before the LORD: for he cometh, for he cometh to judge the earth: he shall judge the world with righteousness, and the people with his truth.
Just as sex between a husband and a wife is a holy intimate and strengthening act, because it is holy it is NOT dirty or smutty, but beautiful; just like praise and worship is beautiful.
We often use the word beautiful as an esthetic term of an object or thing. But here the word is used as an act, as an event.
Today also commemorates the beautiful victory Israel had against Amelek because of the strength gained from the intimate experience of ADONAI providing water from the rock.
Another beautiful and Intimate act is when we love our fellow man by helping him carry a load.
Gal. 6:2-3 Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ. For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself.
“Indeed ADONAI, We have a Beautifully Intimate thing going on here, help me to further submit to You and therefore deepen and strengthen that Beautiful and Intimate bond. In Yeshua’s Name, Ameyn.”
