Psalm 1 Introduction (Part 1)

Psalm 1 Introduction (Part 1)

The Psalms prophesied the spiritual man verses the natural man (Psa 1:1). David is the dominant author and represent prayers (Psa 72:20). Psalms are in the five "wisdom books" -- teaching how to live God's way. Job teaches how to suffer in faith (Job 13:15). Psalms present how to pray and worship God (Psa 55:16-17). Proverbs teaches how to learn(Pro 9:10). Ecclesiastes teaches how to live with discernment (Ecc 10:10). Life is easier living it God's way. Song of Solomon teaches us how to love (Son 6:3). Psalms are broken into five books: (1) 1-41, (2) 42-72, (3) 73-89, (4) 90-106, (5) 107-150. Psalms five books map to the themes of Moses' Pentateuch: (1) Genesis: creation and election; (2) Exodus: redemption and deliverance; requirements of God; (3) Leviticus: sanctification and communion; (4) Numbers trial and failure. (5) Deuteronomy: divine government and victory. Some things in the Psalms don't apply to believers today because the Spirit indwells us permanently (Joh 14;16, Eph 4:30). Psalms cover 1500 BC to 400 BC with several writers. There's a prophetic thread starts in Psa 1:1 points to the messiah, the Godly man of heaven as opposed to earth. "Blessed in the man who has never walked in the counsel of the ungodly" This can only be Jesus Christ.
