Let the earth rejoice!
Scripture reading for June 26th: Psalms 93-96
Key Scriptures: Psalm 96:11-13 “Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad; let the sea resound, and all that is in it; let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them. Then all the trees of the forest will sing for joy; they will sing before the Lord, for He comes, He comes to judge the earth. He will judge the world in righteousness and the peoples in His truth.”
The psalmist brings forth a new song for the earth to sing. He commands the heavens to rejoice and the earth to be glad. He asks that the seas resound and those living in the ocean depths. He can see fields jubilant and and trees singing as the Lord God returns to the earth to judge the world and people in righteousness and truth! The people are to ascribe glory, strength and honor to the Supreme Ruler and Judge of all!
Let heaven, earth, and mankind rejoice: “Then I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and on the sea, and all that is in them, singing: “To Him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb be praise and honor and glory and power, for ever and ever.”” (Revelation 5:13)
