Israel, and Earth at large, blessed in Messiah’s Advent

Cannot we testify with David that the Lord has done marvellous things? By His grace he has made known His salvation, and also displayed His righteousness in and through the Lord Jesus Christ. He has been revealed both to the Jews and Gentiles alike, for the heathen and the ends of the earth have seen and known His salvation.

The whole earth with all its inhabitants, and all its elements, should ascribe a concert of praise to Him. When He comes to judge the earth, then every knee will bow and every tongue confess that Jesus is Lord. Even unbelieving hearts will have to acknowledge and confess that His judgment will be with righteousness and equity.

Psalm 98

   1  O sing a new song to the Lord,
         for wonders he hath done:
      His right hand and his holy arm
         him victory hath won.

   2  The Lord God his salvation
          hath caused to be known;
      His justice in the heathen's sight
          he openly hath shown.

   3  He mindful of his grace and truth
         to Isr'el's house hath been;
      And the salvation of our God
         all ends of th' earth have seen.

   4  Let all the earth unto the Lord
         send forth a joyful noise;
      Lift up your voice aloud to him,
         sing praises, and rejoice.

   5  With harp, with harp, and voice of psalms,
         unto Jehovah sing:
   6  With trumpets, cornets, gladly sound
         before the Lord the King.

   7  Let seas and all their fullness roar;
         the world, and dwellers there;
   8  Let floods clap hands, and let the hills
         together joy declare

   9  Before the Lord; because he comes,
         to judge the earth comes he:
      He'll judge the world with righteousness,
         his folk with equity.
