As far as the east is from the west.

Psa 103:12  As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us. 

What a magnificent prophecy! As far as the east is from the west, then the sins of the saints shall not be held against them for this is the distance between judgement and mercy. The mercy of the Lord is “from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear Him, and His righteousness to the childrens’s children.” (v17) The righteousness of Jesus who sits at the right hand of the Father. Glory to God, for these are those who fear Him, those who know Him, those who are known by Him. This fear of God brings us trembling before the throne of grace. There we find this very mercy as we confess our sins. It is there that we find His righteousness. It is there that we discover that nothing in this life is about our righteousness. On my very best day I’m not good enough and on my worse day He is still good enough. His righteousness.

It is always about Jesus. It is He that forgives all of our iniquities. It is He who heals us. It is He who redeemed our lives from destruction. It is Jesus who crowns us with lovingkindness and tender mercies. It is He in whom we find satisfaction and in this He renews our youth like the eagles( v2-5) It is Christ alone who does all these things. All of my strivings, all of my efforts are of little to no value in the Kingdom of God. It is my recognition and my surrender to His righteousness that produces something of eternal value in me. It does not matter who I am or where I have been, it only matters who I have seen. The question becomes have you seen the King? Have you glimpsed the glory? Have you seen Him high and lifted up sitting at the right hand of the Father? Have you seen His righteousness for it is this that covers you.

The glory that you have seen is the righteousness of Christ and His glory fills the temple and you are His temple. He has built this temple with lively stones. No human hand has had any part in the building of this temple. And so it is His glory alone that matters. His righteousness, His mercy His lovingkindness that shall surely be found in His surrendered obedient servants that the world might see a manifestation of God’s great love,. The Lord has established His throne in heaven and His Kingdom rules over all. (v 19) Bless the Lord oh my soul and all that is within me bless His holy name. (v1)
