150 Days of Psalms - Psalm 45

A Royal Wedding Song on Valentine's Day! How cool is that?

The Psalm was written to celebrate the king and his wedding, but it is a beautiful picture of THE Wedding between Jesus Christ and His Bride, the Church.

Revelation 19:6 Then I heard what sounded like a great multitude, like the roar of rushing waters and like loud peals of thunder, shouting: "Hallelujah! For our Lord God Almighty reigns. 7 Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory! For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and his bride has made herself ready. 8 Fine linen, bright and clean, was given her to wear." 9 Then the angel said to me, "Write: 'Blessed are those who are invited to the wedding supper of the Lamb!' " And he added, "These are the true words of God."

Happy Valentine's Day. The King has written you a love song.

There are many beautiful images in this Psalm. Some are describing how wonderful the King is. Others tell about the beautiful bride. Here is an awesome thought - when you think of the King as Jesus and the bride as you and me (as part of the Church).

The king will desire your beauty,
Bow down to him, for he is your lord. v.11

Here is another beautiful work of art by the lady who did the one above (and of course I really like it because of the "strings" theme.) v.8 in the Holman Christian Standard uses the word "harps" but other translations use "strings."
If you like this lady's artwork, she has many nice prints and gifts you can purchase. Visit her web site
