There is rhyme and reason to the governing of God. When we realize His position of “sitting enthroned upon the cherubim”, our eyes are opened to the mercy seat (on top of the ark of the covenant). What a beautiful reference to His Son’s sacrifice being able to atone for our sin.
As we participate in recognizing and exalting Him for His holiness, then we will experience worship like none other. Equity, justice and righteousness are spoken of as the reason for our ability to exalt in His reign, bowing down in worship.
Moses, Aaron and Samuel had one thing in common: an open line of communication with God, responding to His answers and keeping His testimonies and statutes. God answered their cries, forgave them and avenged their wrongdoings (gaining satisfaction through the blood of the Lamb).
Because the Lord our God is holy (and we are not), we are moved to bow in worship at His holy mountain, recognizing our need of Him. Let us exalt Him with renewed awe at what it meant for Him to avenge for our wrongdoings. -Teresa #neverquestionurworth! #HedidnotspareHiSon
Psalm 99:1-9 (ESV)
99 The Lord reigns; let the peoples tremble!
He sits enthroned upon the cherubim; let the earth quake!
2 The Lord is great in Zion;
he is exalted over all the peoples.
3 Let them praise your great and awesome name!
Holy is he!
4 The King in his might loves justice.[a]
You have established equity;
you have executed justice
and righteousness in Jacob.
5 Exalt the Lord our God;
worship at his footstool!
Holy is he!
6 Moses and Aaron were among his priests,
Samuel also was among those who called upon his name.
They called to the Lord, and he answered them.
7 In the pillar of the cloud he spoke to them;
they kept his testimonies
and the statute that he gave them.
8 O Lord our God, you answered them;
you were a forgiving God to them,
but an avenger of their wrongdoings.
9 Exalt the Lord our God,
and worship at his holy mountain;
for the Lord our God is holy!
