Psalms 97* The Lord Jesus reigns in power that cannot be resisted. (1-7)His care of his people, and his provision for them. (8-12)1-7 Though many have been made happy in Christ, still there isroom. And all have reason to rejoice in Christ's government.There is a depth in his counsels, which we must not pretend tofathom; but still righteousness and judgment are the habitationof his throne. Christ's government, though it might be matter ofjoy to all, will yet be matter of terror to some; but it istheir own fault that it is so. The most resolute and daringopposition will be baffled at the presence of the Lord. And theLord Jesus will ere long come, and put an end to idol worship ofevery kind. 8-12 The faithful servants of God may well rejoice and be glad,because he is glorified; and whatever tends to his honour, ishis people's pleasure. Care is taken for their safety. Butsomething more is meant than their lives. The Lord will preservethe souls of his saints from sin, from apostacy, and despair,under their greatest trials. He will deliver them out of thehands of the wicked one, and preserve them safe to his heavenlykingdom. And those that rejoice in Christ Jesus, and in hisexaltation, have fountains of joy prepared for them. Those thatsow in tears, shall reap in joy. Gladness is sure to the uprightin heart; the joy of the hypocrite is but for a moment. Sinnerstremble, but saints rejoice at God's holiness. As he hates sin,yet freely loves the person of the repentant sinner who believesin Christ, he will make a final separation between the person heloves and the sin he hates, and sanctify his people wholly,body, soul, and spirit
