Promise and Warning

Psalm 125:1 A Song of Ascents.

Those who trust in the LORD Are as Mount Zion, which cannot be moved but abides forever. 2 As the mountains surround Jerusalem, So the LORD surrounds His people From this time forth and forever. 3 For the scepter of wickedness shall not rest upon the land of the righteous, So that the righteous will not put forth their hands to do wrong. 4 Do good, O LORD, to those who are good And to those who are upright in their hearts. 5 But as for those who turn aside to their crooked ways, The LORD will lead them away with the doers of iniquity. Peace be upon Israel.

The simple promise is that those who trust in the LORD cannot be moved. To trust in the LORD is to be protected by the LORD. He is like mountains surrounding Jerusalem–the city of peace. And He will do this forever!

King Jesus holds the scepter. He leads us in righteousness and he will lead us forever! Those who trust the Lord Jesus are in an immovable Kingdom!

The simple warning is that those who turn aside to THEIR crooked way, the LORD will move them away with the doers of iniquity. To distrust the LORD is to be movable and unprotected. To distrust Him is to do things your way and not God’s way. To distrust the LORD is to have no peace.
