All the ends of the earth…

Read Psalm 22

Focus on verse 27

This could possibly be one of the theme verses for this weblog, after all if “it all Enns here”, it can’t be far from the ends of the earth. Puns aside, it appears that King David, who wrote this Psalm believed that the day would come when people from all over the earth would turn to the Lord, the God of Israel, and worship Him together. Interestingly, David knew nothing of the modern technology that actually makes that possible in this day and age. With satellite communication networks made it possible for the last public mass evangelistic meetings where Rev. Billy Graham spoke to be seen live around the globe. Families in nations around the world were able to hear the message of the Good News of eternal life and worship the Lord together.

While David did not know specifically that satellite technology would make this possible, he believed that somehow God would make it happen. The beauty of faith is that we do not have to understand the “how” in order to believe that God will make it happen. This would also be true of the Messianic prophecies that this Psalm contains in regard to the manner in which Jesus would die. David likely had no idea at the time of the writing of these words that God would use them in a prophetic fashion. He was just writing what happened to be on his mind and heart at the time. God did the rest. If God is truly unchanging, then it would seem entirely plausible that He continues to do this sort of thing. When we walk in obedience to His promptings, He may use what we do and/or say to impact people around us in ways that we have no knowledge of. So when that awesome day comes when we are set free from the time and space continuum, and He allows us to see the past and the future – it will be interesting to see the times He used us to accomplish His will when we had no idea of the impact our action would have on the world.
