Wesley's Notes for Psalms 85:10


85:10 Kissed - That great work of redemption by Christ, shall clearly manifest God's mercy in redeeming his people Israel, and in the conversion of the Gentiles; his truth in fulfilling that great promise of sending his son, his righteousness in punishing sin, on his son, and in conferring righteousness upon guilty and lost creatures; and his peace or reconciliation to sinners, and that peace of conscience which attends upon it.

    This Psalm Of David’s is not only a blessing in personal application as many have stated. It is a word of Prophecy given through The Spirit of God to David as the King of Israel and the forefather of Our Lord Jesus Christ. It tells of the Return of Israel to God and some of the events that will accompany that which Our Unchanging God will do as He remembers with great Mercy His child Israel.

    Jesus' crucifiction enabled all these, it enabled his blood to be shed on calvary as the final sacrifice for our sins.His blood touching the mercy seat of the covenant fulfilled what was said in this verse. He truly is our saviour and redeemer,Thank you Jesus, come quickly so that we can live forever in your kingdom.
