This Psalms 45 is a royal marriage Psalm. The events of this Psalm did take place in History, but prophetically there are virgins waiting for the great wedding to come. That wedding will be with the King of Kings of all the universe, and his virgin bride. It reads; "To the chief Musician." That is to He who has the victory; "Upon Shoshannim". "Shoshannim" means "The lilies" for the Spring festival, the Passover. Our Passover today is Jesus Christ, for He became our Passover at the cross. In I Corinthians 5:7 Paul tells us; "Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our Passover is sacrificed for us:" Jesus Christ paid that price on the cross to become our Passover for one and all times. Jesus is our Passover and our Sabbath.
"For the sons of Korah, Maschil, A Song of loves." reminds us that Korah himself died by divine judgment when he went against Moses in the wilderness. However Korah's sons were saved by the grace of the the "lily of the valleys. See this Psalms is talking about the spring of the new day. "Maschil" means to teach and instruct; teach this song of love to our Messiah to the sons of Korah. There is a Royal wedding coming very shortly.
Psalms 45:1 "My heart is inditing a good matter: I speak of the things which I have made touching the king: My tongue is the pen of a ready writer."
This "inditing" means that my heart is just "bubbling up and running over or overflowing with joy over this matter that I must share with you. I am so overjoyed that as I tell you these things it is going to take a person with a rapid pen to keep up with the things I am going to say about the things of my king. Of course this is our Lord Jesus Christ that is being spoken of. This experience of this vision that this person will have in this the relationship of Christ was truly an exciting time. It is coming in the near future today, for it is the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ at the seventh and last trump. This, the time of the marriage between Jesus Christ and His virgin bride, those of the body of Christ that remained virgins through the time of the tribulation of Satan the Antichrist. It will be a time that is impossible to completely describe with our physical minds.
Psalms 45:2 "Thou art fairer than the children of men: Grace is poured into thy lips: Therefore God hath blessed thee for ever."
We are praising the very Son of God here. Even to speak of the Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ is a very blessed thing. God our Heavenly Father has blessed Jesus for ever and ever. To Jesus kingdom there is no end. Jesus Christ is our Anointed one, our Messiah. So what is it that is poured into His elect's lips in the end times? We are told of this in Mark 13:11; "But when they shall lead you, and deliver you up, take no thought beforehand what ye shall speak, neither do ye premeditate: but whatsoever shall be given you in that hour, that speak ye: for it is not ye that speak, but the Holy Ghost [Spirit]."
We aren't even to think and plan ahead of time as to what we shall say, for at that hour that we are delivered up: The Holy Spirit of God will pour the words into our lips the blessed words that are to be said. That sword that comes from his lips is a two edged sword that cuts both ways. It is from the Spirit of our Lord, and we read of that sword in Revelation 1:16 "And he had in His right hand seven stars: and out of His mouth went a sharp two edged sword: and His countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength." That two edged sword that will come out of the elects mouth will be bold and cut right into lie and deception that is present. That is how powerful that our Lord's Sword is. That Sword is the very Word of God. God expects boldness from His people in these end times, and the truth from God's Word will sting as it cuts through the lies and traditions of men that go against the Word of God. If that truth stings you, be glad and thank Him, for He has opened your spiritual eyes through His Spirit. There is no way that the truth can be covered over in these end times, for God has promised that it will be taught through the lips of all those that are delivered up in that final hour.
Psalms 45:3 "Gird thy sword upon thy thigh, O most mighty, With they glory and thy majesty."
You can count on it, my friend, His Word shall go forth through the lips of His elect as they are delivered up to bear witness at the leading of the Holy Spirit.
Psalms 45:4 "And in thy majesty ride prosperously Because of truth and meekness and righteousness; And thy right hand shall teach thee terrible things."
Don't read over this, for it is "Because of truth and meekness and righteousness". "Because" in the Hebrew text reads; "on behalf of you [or your behalf]" does your truth and meekness and righteousness ride prosperously. The word "terrible" as stated here is a mistranslation, for it reads "wonders" in the Hebrew text. God is going to use His elect to teach the wondrous thing of His Word, and it will be coming through the lips of our Lord Jesus' virgin bride, as given and flowing from the Holy Spirit of God. What a wonderful thing and time.
Psalms 45:5 "Thine arrows are sharp in the heart of the king's enemies; Whereby the people fall under thee."
The King's enemies are Satan, and his entire realm, and the people shall fall because of their belief in the great deception and and lies that Satan will give forth.
Psalms 45:6 "Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: The sceptre of Thy kingdom is right sceptre."
Our Lord Jesus Christ's scepter is a righteous scepter. That scepter will be a rod of iron that will be used at His return, to rule over the people this entire earth. Revelation 19:13-18 tells us of that time of His return, and in verse 15 it reads; "And out of His mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it He should smite the nations: and He shall rule them with a rod of iron: and He treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God."
Jesus is not coming back to earth this time to be born as a baby, and crucified, but as the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. He will rule with His scepter and that will be with the very Word of God. The scepter is what gives the king the right to rule and do what he does, and our Lord will have the scepter placed in His right hand by the Almighty Father.
Psalms 45:7 "Thou lovest righteousness, and hatest wickedness: Therefore God, Thy God, hath anointed Thee with the oil of gladness above Thy fellows."
It is because God loves righteousness and hatest wickedness that our Lord will use the rod to make things right. The translators have confused the issue in this verse for it appears that God is anointing God; but realize that the "Anointed" is and means "Messiah". This is saying that God [Father] is sending the Anointed [the oil of gladness], the Messiah with gladness.
Psalms 45:8 "All thy garments smell of myrrh, and aloes, and cassia, Out of the ivory palaces, whereby they have made thee glad."
Out of that many membered body of Christ, the elect, many will make our Heavenly Father glad. Have you made Him glad lately? That is our purpose for being created in the first place, to make him glad. Revelation 4:11 "Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for Thou hast created all things, and for Thy pleasure they are and were created."
Psalms 45:9 "Kings' daughters were among thy honourable women: Upon thy right hand did stand the queen of gold of Ophir."
This "daughters" in the text is "maids or virgins", and "Ophir" meaning "in abundance", and that "queen" is Israel. This is asking, Are you on the right hand or are you on the left. God does care what you think and do in your life, for there is only one right and correct way in Father's Word, and the left communistic way is not that way. If you expect to have a place in that wedding at the coming of Christ that is going to be very soon, you had better be in that right way. God is the one that sets the standard as to what is acceptable to Him, for it is not in some smoke filled room where men negotiate their political correctness. You learn to take that right side, when you study His Word to prepare yourself in the ways of the King. Our Lord has laid that path out in detail, and He expects you and I to read, study and prepare ourselves for that path.
Psalms 45:10 "Hearken, O daughter, and consider, and incline thine ear; Forget also thine own people, and thy father's house;"
What this is saying in the Hebrew, is if it is necessary, then stand apart from your own father and mother, children and family rather than incline an ear to the words that they say. If your family is all tied up in that shadow of death that is covering the earth today, then stay clear of them. That "shadow of death" talked about in a prior chapter includes those false doctrines and theories that leads one to the false christ upon his arrival. Get away from that family, and remain a virgin to our Lord, rather than participating in that wedding with the Antichrist at his coming.
Psalms 45:11 "So shall the king greatly desire thy beauty: For he is thy Lord; and worship thou him."
The only way that our King, Jesus Christ will desire you will be as one of His virgin bride that remained true to the very end.
Psalms 45:12 "And the daughter of Tyre shall be there with a gift; Even the rich among the people shall intreat thy favour."
This daughter of Tyre, are the Kenites, and even they will be there with a gift for the bride of Christ. Satan is the king of Tyre, as recorded in Ezekiel 28, and these children of Satan will entreat the virgin bride of Christ with favor. The day we are speaking of in this verse is the first day of the Millennium age of Christ's kingdom here on earth. That day starts at the sounding of the seventh and last trumpet. That is the day spoken of in I Corinthians 15:50-50, when all flesh is changed in the wink of an eye, instantly into their new incorruptible bodies, to life for the next thousand years and then be tested by their works alone. In that Millennium age, even the Kenites will respect the Lord Jesus Christ and bring gifts to Him, for every knee will bow to Him.
Psalms 45:13 "The king's daughter is all glorious within: Her clothing is of wrought gold."
The virgin bride of Christ will be bubbling over with joy, as we read of in verse on, and she will have the gospel armor of Christ on and in place.
Psalms 45:14 "She shall be brought unto the king in raiment of needlework: The virgins her companions that follow her Shall be brought unto thee."
Remember the ten virgins of Matthew 25:1-13? Five of those virgins had the oil in their lamps, the truth of God's Word in their minds and ready for the wedding on that great day. Yet five of those virgins were ready for that wedding, yet they did not have sufficient oil or truth in their minds to remain true to the very end, the coming of the bridegroom. There are many that claim to be part of that wedding feast, and a virgin bride in Christ, yet because they do not have the oil or truth from God's Word locked away in their minds, they will not be going into that wedding feast. They have filled their lamps or minds with traditions of men and theories like the rapture doctrine that will lead them away from Christ and into Satan's camp. Of course they will do this in ignorance, for they simply were not prepared.
This is saying then that this marriage song is not for them, even though they hear and think that they are one of the virgins ready for the wedding, they will not be brought into the wedding. The shadow of death will lead them away, and they will miss the wedding completely. However the beautiful thing here, is that those beautiful virgins that are God's elect will bring others with them to the wedding feast. Praise God for that, for other will see the truth and not bow a knee to Satan.
Psalms 45:15 "With gladness and rejoicing shall they be brought: They shall enter into the king's palace."
In Ezekiel 44:23-28 it speaks of the Millennium age, and the Zadok that will be there with our Lord, having access to Jesus, and going in and out of the king's palace. These Zadok are the virgin bride of Christ that remained true to the very end. They will be serving our Lord, and ruling as Joint heirs with Christ through that time of the Millennium. They will be the judges and teachers, giving the discipline during that thousand year period. This is contrary to what is being taught in most churches today. Many that believe that they will be buddies with Christ in the Millennium will be looked upon as filthy and corrupted.
Psalms 45:16 "Instead of thy fathers shall be thy children, Whom thou mayest make princes in all the earth."
This is a little mixed up in the translation, but it is a lot clearer in Ezekiel 44:28; "And it shall be unto them for an inheritance: I am their inheritance: and ye shall give them no possession in Israel: I am their possession." Why give them land and possessions for they are joint heirs with Christ, and Christ owns it all, not just a parcel of land. That is why the Zadok or elect will be made princes in all the earth, it will all be theirs.
Psalms 45:17 "I will make thy name to be remembered in all generations: Therefore shall the people praise thee for ever and ever."
"To the chief Musician for the sons of Korah, upon Alamoth."
This is speaking not only of the priesthood of the Zadok, but Yahshuah, Jesus the Messiah. The people will praise Jesus Christ for ever and ever. Those that do not praise Him will simply not exist, not even in the minds of their loved ones, for following that second death of Revelation 20:11-15, they will not exist. It will be as if they were never created in the first place, and those entering into the third and eternal age will continually praise our Father and Jesus Christ forever.
We will leave this song to the sons of Korah, and look upon Alamoth. "Alamoth" means virgins, and it will be a song to the virgins, those that remained true to our Lord right up to His coming at the seventh trumpet. It is a song written just for God's elect, those called the Zadok of the Millennium age.
