Wesley's Notes for Psalms 45:7


45:7 Therefore - Therefore God hath exalted thee far above all men and angels, to a state of joy and endless glory at his right hand; which is fitly compared by the oil of gladness. Thy God - According to thy human nature, #John 20:17|, though in respect of thy Divine nature, thou art his fellow, #Zech 13:7|, and his equal, #Phil 2:6|, and one with him, #John 10:30|. Oil - So called, because it was a token of gladness, and used in feasts, and other solemn occasions of rejoicing. Fellows - Above all them who partake with thee in this unction: above all that ever were anointed for priests or prophets, or kings.


Discussion for Psalms 45

  • A disciple
    "My heart is inditing (GUSHING FORTH) a good matter: I speak of the things which I have made touching the KING: my tongue is the pen of a ready writer." It is important to note, that the enemies are NOTHING to be afraid of: look how Jesus is going to deal with them! In a moment, all their terribleness will be answered with the sharp arrows of God in their hearts, and they will be GONE! HALLELUJAH!
  • A disciple
    "To the chief Musician upon Shoshannim, for the sons of Korah, Maschil, A Song of loves." Upon trumpets, for the Doorkeepers of the House of the LORD, for instruction, A SONG OF LOVES. And with the Appearance of the Lord Jesus Christ in all His beauty and glory; FIRST that shall be done is the complete removal of all enemies of God from out of His kingdom; and the Dominion given to the Saints.

    The flesh is weak and the devil is here to kill steal and destroy. That is when God word is very important in our lives. We must seek his word each and every day in order to stay strong and prosperity. He will never leave or forsake us but we must do our part and read and apply His word. Trust in the Lord and lean not to your own understanding and He will direct your path through the Holy Spirit

    Regardless of what we think of God's Word, it is true any. It is the only source that we can go to to find out what is really going on on this planet and in our lives. Things that we need to know are being hidden from us every day by the enemy through people, situations,etc. The Word of God lets us know that He loves us but requires our obedience to Him as well. I have found this out the hard way.
  • Irene123
    To ese okposio - ".....anointed with the oil of gladness above thy 'fellows'." This is a prophesy of the coming messiah, Jesus. His 'fellows' are all flesh men of earth; Jesus is sinless, they are not. Jesus is anointed to be our savior, as no one else could be because of sin. His 'fellows' are Jesus peers during His lifetime. Tis PROPHECY to come; not about Jesus in heaven, cont.
