The Judgments Of Old
Ronnie W. Wolfe
judgments about which this psalmist is speaking is nothing more than
the very word of God, which preceded the creation of the world. The
Bible itself tells us in Psalms 119:89 For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven.
word of God came to us in small increments, but it was settled
(established) in heaven before the world was ever created, and Matthew
24:35 tells us that Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
we bring to mind the word of God, we are remembering God's "judgments
of old." We are blessed today to have the whole of God's revelation to
us through his word, the Bible.
Perhaps this is the pearl of
great price mentioned in Matthew 13:46. It does at least have great
value. I told the people at church Sunday evening that there is no other
book like the Bible, and that means that it should take priority over
any other book in the world. We should all heed this verse and remember
the judgments of old and find comfort in them.
