Good morning. We come to Psalm 90 today. A psalm of Moses. Moses points out that God’s perception of time is different than ours in verse 4, “For a thousand years in your sight are like a day that had just gone by, or like a watch in the night.” Moses also sets out a disturbing truth. In verse 8. “You have set our iniquities before you, our secret sins in the light of your presence.” God knows these things, yet through Jesus our sins are forgiven so that we can go on in service to him and abandon those sins. In Ezekiel 10 where the glory of God departs from the temple. The throne of God rises after burning coals from the cherubim have been scattered in the city. Then the glory of the Lord leaves the temple. In Matthew we have multiple events and sayings including the sin of blaspheming the Holy Spirit. But in verse 38 the Pharisees and teachers of the law ask for a sign. Jesus points them to the sign of Jonah and how Jonah was three days and nights in the belly of a huge fish, an allusion to Jesus in the tomb. Some say they are Christians yet do not believe the story of Jonah. Jesus did, and used it as an illustration of His time in the tomb. You can rely on the word of God. God bless all of you during this difficult time.
