|Psalms 93 |
1 The LORD reigns, he is clothed with majesty; the LORD is clothed with strength, with which he has girded himself' the world also is firmly established, so that it cannot be moved.
2 Your throne is established of old; you are from everlasting.
3 The floods have lifted up, O LORD, the floods have lifted up their voice; the floods lift up their waves.1
4 The LORD on high is mightier than the noise of many waters, yes, than the mighty waves of the sea.
5 Your testimonies are very sure; holiness becomes your house, O LORD, forever.

1 The floods have lifted up, O LORD, the floods have lifted up their voice; the floods lift up their waves. From George Fox's: Concerning how the World is called the Sea:
And God will dry up Babylon's sea, and make her springs dry; for God brought them like a sea over the Jews, [who destroyed Jerusalem and took the population captive], when they transgressed his law, and went from the Lord their rock and salvation.
And again it is said, ‘the sea shall come upon Babylon, and she shall be covered with the multitude of her waves, Jer 51:42.’ So when the Medes and Persians came upon Babylon, then the sea came over them, and the Jews had their liberty.
So spiritual Babylon is the mother of harlots, she sits upon the waters, which are nations, people, and tongues; but God will dry up her waters which have overflown since the apostles' days, who has persecuted the people of God; and out of her sea has risen the great storms of persecution, and the beast which rose out of the sea, with his storms of persecution. And it is the power of darkness, which keeps the people in spiritual Egypt, Sodom and Babylon, in this sea. [Spiritual Babylon is the false Christian church, which sanctions the sins of her members, and promises them heaven after dying, while still slaves to their selfish, carnal, fleshly nature; never having crucified their lusts and affections on the cross of Christ. ]
‘And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand up for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek, and his rest shall be glorious.’
And this is Christ who sets up his ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.
So he gathers them with his power, spirit and light, and his ensign is not set up for only the Jews or a single nation only, but for all nations in general; ‘who enlightens every man that comes into the world,’ that with his light they may see him and his ensign, Christ the heavenly and spiritual man.
So the gathering of all nations is unto him, by his heavenly light which he enlightens them withal.
‘And the Lord shall utterly destroy the tongue of the Egyptian sea, and with his mighty wind shall he shake his hand over the river, and shall smite it in the seven streams, in the perfection of it; and men shall go over dry-shod.’ Isa 11:15.
And the Lord will destroy in this mountain, the face of the covering that is cast over all people, and the veil that is spread over all nations, [mark, face of the covering all nations,] not just a nation; that all people may see the salvation of God, with the light which comes from Christ their Savior; and if they do not believe in it, it will be their condemnation.
And this covering must be taken off all people before the knowledge of the Lord covers the earth, as the waters cover the sea.
For the beast had his power from the dragon, and the whore is erred from Christ the truth; and Egypt in the spirit, and the spiritual Egyptians will say, ‘who is God, or his Son the light, that they should obey him?’ (like the old Egyptian.) And Christ was crucified in spiritual Sodom and Egypt.
So here the Jews, scribes, Pharisees, and high priests, who crucified Christ without the gates of Jerusalem, are called spiritual Egypt, and Sodom, who were the greatest professors in the world. But Christ is the ensign set up to the nations, who stills Mystery Babylon's sea. After Babylon has fallen, and the seas have dried up, then the new heaven, and the new earth is seen; for the first heaven and first earth were passed away, and then there was no more sea. So when the first heavens and the first earth are passed away, then the new earth, and the new heavens are seen; and here is seen the holy city, New Jerusalem, prepared as a bride for her husband Christ. And here is the first and last seen, their husband Christ; and the marriage of the Lamb is come.
‘And the force of the Gentiles shall come to his light, and abundance of the sea shall be converted unto Christ.’ Isa 60:3-5.
So here is abundance of the world, which is called the sea, that shall be converted to Christ Jesus; for the Gentiles are the nations, and the Gentiles shall come to Christ's light; the sea the world; for nations and tongues are waters.
The sea said, wisdom is not in me. Job 28. Now the wisdom that is pure, is from above the sea, and those who fear God receive it.
‘And he shall pass through the sea with afflictions, and shall smite the waves of the sea, and all the deeps of the rivers shall be dried up; and the pride of Assyria shall be brought down, and the scepter of Egypt shall depart away.’
And Christ's scepter shall be set up, his scepter is a scepter of righteousness. Zech 10:11.
‘Thus said the Lord, which makes a way in the sea, and the path in the mighty waters, that his people may pass, glory to his name forever.’ Isa. 43.
And the Lord said, ‘When I came, was there no man? When I called, was there none to answer? Is my hand shortened at all, that I cannot redeem, or have I no power, to deliver? Behold, at my rebuke I dry up the sea.’ And here the great power of God and Christ is seen. Isa. 50:2. The wicked are compared to a troubled sea, when it cannot rest, whose waters cast up mire and dirt; their waters are foul, Isa 57:20.
‘There is no peace to the wicked, said my God,' Isa 1:57:21; for they are always roaring, and wallowing, and making a noise.
And the cruel people that have no mercy, their voice roars like a sea, as in Jer 6:23. This sea, this merciless cruel people, which is like a roaring sea, was to come over the Jews for disobeying the Lord; and therefore for all people to believe in the light, with which Christ has enlightened you, and walk in the light, that you may see Christ the rock, and build upon him, who is sure against all weathers.
And Christ will bruise the head of the serpent; for the Lord with his sore, and great and strong sword shall punish the leviathan the piercing serpent, even leviathan that crooked serpent, which makes the world (both men and women), crooked.
And he shall slay the dragon that is in the sea, [mark, in the sea,] for his habitation is in the wicked like a roaring sea, and they plead for him and his sin until they go to the grave, and not for Christ that bruises his head; and the Lord that destroys him with his great sword.
But those who plead for Christ, ‘can sing unto the Lord of his vineyard; for the Lord does keep it,’ and will water it every moment, for fear that any hurt it. ‘I will keep it night and day, says the Lord;’ glory to his name forever, who is the keeper of his people, and this we witness who are his vineyard, as in Isaiah 27:2-3.
