The Return of Jesus in Psalm 50

Psalm 50:3-5:

3. Our God shall come, and shall not keep silence: a fire shall devour before him, and it shall be very tempestuous round about him.

4. He shall call to the heavens from above, and to the earth, that he may judge his people.

5. Gather my saints together unto me; those that have made a covenant with me by sacrifice.

Make no doubt about it; this passage of scripture is referring to the second coming of Jesus Christ! It is God, the Son, Whom is being spoken about. Notice the parallels between what's being written here and Jesus' return in other passages of the Bible.

The Fire of the Lord

... a fire shall devour before him, and it shall be very tempestuous round about him. - Vs. 3

... the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. - 2 Thessalonians 1:7-8

The Voice of the Lord

He shall call to the heavens from above, and to the earth, that he may judge his people. - Vs. 4

For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him....For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. - 1 Thessalonians 4:14-17

A Covenant by Sacrifice

Gather my saints together unto me; those that have made a covenant with me by sacrifice. - Vs. 5

I think this is the most important part of the description of the return of Jesus. It talks about a covenant of sacrifice the Lord makes with those whom He comes to save. No doubt, this has something to do with the sacrifice that Jesus made on the cross for our sins; but a covenant is an agreement between two parties. That means some kind of sacrifice is required on our part, as well.

Jesus sacrificed Himself for our sins; but we need to sacrifice our sins for Jesus. Romans 6:6 states, "... that henceforth we should not serve sin." We need to learn how to live righteously—according to the Word of God. This is our preparation for eternal life.

Second Peter 3:13 the future creation of a "new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness." Notice it doesn't say, "wherein dwelleth sin." There will be no sin there. Jesus is coming to put an end to sin; and we need to sacrifice our sinful lives and desires if we want to join Jesus in His righteous world to come.

May God help you in doing so; and if all goes well, I hope to see you there. God bless you.

More Christian Hubs by Greg Sereda

In this hub, I compare the re-building of Solomon's temple to the building up of the church through evangelism. I elaborate on three points: persecution, compromise and the love of God.

What will we do in Heaven? Will we be able to high dive into the River of the Water of Life? Will we discover new life in the universe? Will we be able to fly like eagles? Will we build our ultimate dream home? Will we have exotic pets? Find out by reading this hub.

The church is like a hospital, a place where people come to for healing. Sometimes, we forget that. People have various sicknesses in a hospital. In the church, there are people struggling with various sins. We need to encourage and help one another in order to overcome them.
