ritual of entering the Holy of Holies, scattering the blood of the sacrifice on the veil, altar,and elders of the people - cleansing those of the covenant while the wicked are foundnaked and destroyed (Matt 22:11-13 (2-14).Finally, the Messianic psalms are prophecies of the coming Lord and Savior of Israel. In a common practice of prophetic utterance, the prophecy was not intended to bea one time deal. In fact one of the tests of a prophetic pronouncement is its continuitythroughout all time
- for what God speaks once, He will speak again (1 Ne. 10:19).Theodoret in his supernal work “Discourses” uses Psalms as a justification for believingin Christ. Showing how that, though David’s throne on earth had been dissolved, yetthrough Christ the throne has been established forever.
The Messianic psalms were in prophetic declaration concerning the Lord coming out of the Holy of Holies clothed uponwith the “visible creation”
Kim M. Peterson (2001) states that the “Psalms are praises” and, further, “Hymns please [the Lord] if they are hymns of the heart. Hymns of the heart are hymns sungsincerely.” If we do not sing the hymns of praise sincerely we are profiting ourselvesnothing and, as K. Peterson points out, have the song, as with an insincere prayer,counted unto us for wickedness.
Margaret Barker (2006), likewise, instructs usconcerning this when she says, “[…] the song of the angels had to be in harmony, andany defect was punished. They had to sing ‘with one voice, with one speech, with oneknowledge and with one sound.. …As there can be no earlier or later, no lower or higher for them, when they sang the hymn of sanctification before the king of the kings of kings.’ […] The song of the angels was the harmony of the creation, and there was onlyone theme - Holy Holy Holy.
It was sung in response to the praises of Israel
