Welcome to the Kerwin Baptist Church broadcast today. Our desire is for the word of God spread throughout all may know Christ.

Join us now for a portion of one of our services here at Kerwin Baptist Church located in Kernersville, North Carolina.

Psalm chapter 90 oligomers one prayer of Moses, the man of God, Lord, thou hast been our dwelling place. In all, the first thing Moses said to the disappointment of the people we see a former closeness, Moses said, thou hast been our dwelling place in all generations but God I don't know if that's the case now.

We have not been faithful to you know first thing I would ask. Maybe some of us be in that situation today where there used to be a former closeness to God. We literally used to dwell with him now, life and circumstances and things that's kinda brought a wedge in between. Notice first to be said before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou has formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God. Secondly, he describes a foundation that is clean. He said God you created your in charge. He said that now art God. While we used to formerly be close to you. We have changed but you have stayed the same. By the way folks want to understand something if there's a distance between us and God. Now God had gone anywhere.

He had moved. He had changed. We're the ones that left notice.

If you would verse three he says thou turn this man to destruction. Look at verse five. Thou carries them away as with a flood like a verse seven for we are consumed by thine anger and by thy wrath. We are troubled we see that God's force was challenge number three here.

And Moses says hey they challenge you and we challenge you, and we fought against you, but you have one every single time notice. If you wouldn't.

Verse eight we see that their faults were not covered like they thought they were verse eight he says thou hast set our iniquities before the our secret sins in the light of thy countenance. Now the Lord is God.

All these things that we thought maybe we've done secretly and hidden God brought to light by the way I want to remind you today he knows everything we do everything we think, everywhere. We've been we can argue get mad at the preacher and everybody else. If we want to. But, dear friend were going to have to answer to God one day. Our faults have not been cooked. Notice lastly in this chapter, Moses makes the formula very clearly. Verse 12 so the Lord because of all this teach us to number our days, that means to make sure you make the most of every one of them to make them important to make sure we make the right decisions teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts to wisdom.

Another words to realize we don't have a lot of time and this is important so we need to give everything we have and we need to turn our hearts towards wisdom. Where is wisdom found the only place wisdom is found in the Bible knowledge is found in books.

Wisdom is only found in the Bible verse 13 return the Lord. How long the words please.

We've got to get back to dwelling with you and let it rip hit the concerning thy servants would you forgive us if you have mercy on us.

Would you give us another chance.

Look at Psalm 91, I believe, and always have believe Psalm 90 has so many wonderful things, but it basically sets up Psalm 91 Moses says this he that abided within the secret place of the most high shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord he is my refuge and my fortress, my God in him will I trust.

Surely he shall deliver me from the snare of the Fowler and from the noisome pestilence. He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust his truth shall be thy shield and buckler. Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night, nor for the arrow that lie at by day, nor for the pestilence that walked in darkness, nor for the destruction that wasted at noon day notice.

If you would verse eight only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked, because thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the most high, thy habitation, there shall no evil befall the neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling. For he shall give his angels charge over the to keep thee in all thy ways, for they shall bear the up in their hands less now – thy foot against a stone. Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder. The young lion and the Dragon shalt thou trample under feet because he has set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him. I will set him on high, because he have known my nameless numbers 15.

He shall call upon me and I will answer him. I will be with him in trouble. I will deliver him and honor him with long life will I satisfy him and show him my salvation God we need your help today.

I pray that you would help us as we literally speak about the subject of staying close to the cloud.

Lord I ask you to bless in Jesus name, amen. Psalm 91 notice as Moses describes first who God is. In verses one into number going somewhere about verse one he that dwells in the secret place of the most high shall abide under the shadow of the all mighty.

I will say of the Lord he is my refuge and my fortress, my God in him will I trust number one Moses makes it clear that God is the most high. This means that God sees all, he is above us his ways.

The Bible says are above our ways. I want you to understand and live. God is the most time not us, not our friends, not our buddies, not the people we go to for counseling. God is the one who was above all, sees all and knows all notice he says secondly right under this the most time because of the Almighty.

That word Almighty when he calls him Eli means this he does everything and he can prepare the way for people in the wilderness.

There's nothing that's too hard for him.

He is the most high, and basically saying here.

He's the most powerful that's who God is, by the way folks notice. Secondly he says the Lord. In verse two, the Lord, that word Lord LORD is the word Jehovah is called Jehovah, which means he is an intimate God.

He is very personal. He's a high power that looks ahead. He's the Almighty that prepares the way, but he is also Jehovah who loves his people personally.

Wow, Moses said he's above us and stronger than us, but thank God he still loves us. Notice what he says. He says he's my refuge that word refuge literally means shelter we all have sung the song as shelter in the time of storm gods are shelter, notice what he says. Third, he says he's my he's my refuge for my fortress that word fortress, he means that word means is my defense, he's my strong place.

It means when things are coming on me. I can hide when I can hide under God, he is my refuge. But not only that he's my fortress when I need strength when I need somebody to defend me somebody I can hold onto.

That's what God is.

This is all Moses describing and he is right in the middle of the wilderness as he's describing notice 50 says he's my God, this is G small OND. This is the word Elohim is a preacher. What is the difference will obviously Lord is Jehovah which means I was I am. And I always will be. It's a personal name.

He's a personal God Elohim means this that this is the great and mighty God who is the object of my worship and he deserves my worship.

Moses knew God in all these aspects. He said he's the most high whoever sees everything he's the Almighty.

You can do everything he's Jehovah who loves me intimately. He is my Elohim. He is all-powerful he deserves my worship. If you notice with me this morning that the literally the first two of these. He says he is my high tower or or he is the high and mighty God. He says he is the Almighty means that those words are impersonal. It means he is higher than me.

He is stronger than me, which means he's beyond me that impersonal but the last words he uses are personal. He's my Jehovah is my refuge.

He's my fortress, which means this God is above us and he is over us and he is stronger than us, but Moses said, I have come to learn through all these years of serving him and wondering in this wilderness that is also my refuge and my shower head is my fortress, Eddie's my friend wow now I know that might not excite everybody but some of us that end up in the wilderness. Every once a while. That sure is encouraging. He says secondly not only this is who God is, but he said this is what God has done. I know is good to do this because he's proven it to me already. Look at verse three. Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the Fowler from the noisome pestilence. Although I Moses knew if you thing about pestilences Disney remember the whole story is are trying to get the children of Israel out of Egypt all the pestilences that God had to bring on on Pharaoh in Egypt and all the sick Moses certainly knows that Moses says hey.

He's delivered us from the snare of the Fowler, which would mean Pharaoh. He is literally from the noisome pestilence.

All the pestilences that obviously killed so many people you remember. Obviously, as as obscene. The angel of death went through and everybody that it put blood on the door post different things. Moses says God has brought us through these pestilences.

Notice verse four. He shall cover thee with his feathers under his wings shalt thou trust his truth shall be thy shield and buckler three things here.

Moses says Dante who God is.

Let me tell you what I know God will do and what he has done.

He shall deliver verse three he shall deliver.

Moses is saying hey I might be in the wilderness right now and it might be bad right now. We might not understand what's going on right now and we might be here because we blown it, but we blown it before. And God still out of his mercy has delivered. I don't know what your inner what's over you right now in your life.

God can deliver you notice the third thing he says he shall cover in verse four what they want Moses sure annuity was talk about and I personally don't know exactly what stage he wrote this bulimic to you or I believe. I believe it was not long after Moses had been up on the mountain to get obviously the 12 commitment. You know the story he came back down the people were rioting and partying in and they had created these idols and Moses threw down the tablets we just preached on it couple weeks ago. Moses threw down the tablets in anger at any any yelled at the people and all these things and then Moses had to go back up on the mountain and and and and God had to do with the people and then God. Moses spent 40 days up there on the mountain didn't eat, didn't drink, he just wrote down the law of God and the Bible says Wally was up there that he told God. God I need to see your glory and God said, you die if you saw my glory but I tell you what I'll do. I will let my glory pass by but I am going to put you in the rock, and I am going to cut are you there with my soul little bit later on in Psalm 91 Moses said he will deliver me, and he shall cover the notice if you with the third thing he says he shall protect in verse four he shall protect Moses that I've seen it.

I've witnessed it. I watched them do it to me. I watched them do it.

All these people he shall protect notice.

The third thing here. Moses says this is who God is. This is what God has done notice. Thirdly, this is what he says God will do his was interesting. I believe beginning in verse five.

There is dialogue back and forth between Moses and God. Some of these verses God is speaking some of these verses Moses is speaking and I don't just say that lightly. I've done some study and research and looked into it and I have found it. That obviously just about everybody agrees with me that has dug into this. What is interesting is is that Moses says this is who God is.

This is what he's done but I believe thirdly this is what God said he will do. Look at verse five.

Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night, nor for the arrow that flies by day, this is Moses speaking to the people, but he is doing it as the voice of God. God is giving him these words so God is speaking through Moses to the people.

This is what God said he's going to do thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night over the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that walk in the darkness nor destruction that wasted the noonday and he begins verse seven all the way down through verse 16.

Ellis, let me give this list are almost on today's. We've heard that before. I agree. Verse 11. He says for he shall give his angels charge over the to keep the in all thy ways. First thing God said he would do is to keep the you know that we are, by the grace of God we mean Chet.

We only are able to operate. We are only able to take a breath because of the grace of God.

We are literally kept by him. This will God said I will keep the notice of you would. Verse 14, because CF said his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him. He said I will deliver. Moses said in verse three he shall deliver. But in verse 14 he says I will deliver Moses, you might've said that I would do it in your right nontenure. Right now it's coming from my mouth. I'm going to do it. I will deliver notice verse 14. I will, God says, set him on. What is it mean to set him on high, it means that God says I will set you in higher places.

Always a sign of God's blessing. I can take you through Psalm I can take you even into David's life forgot where David says he's put a new song in my mouth. He set my feet upon a rock and established my goings. I was in the mire. David said, but he set my feet upon a rock.

I will set the on high notice in verse 15 he said because of what you've done when you call me. He says I will answer Matt say something dear friend all these years later we have a promise from God. When you call him, he will answer you as a preacher. I've been praying for subset for years and I God just hasn't answered that prayer always answered it. He just said not yet or he said no or he said wait or he said I'm working on it, but he didn't not answer husbands and wives do that notice. If you would verse 15 he said I love this.

I will be with him. So God promised I'll never leave you nor forsake. I will be with him while notice verse 15 God says I will honor him. I will what is that word honor means it means to reward it means to fulfill the promises that have been given.

I will honor God says because you've done this you done what preacher were getting to it because you've done this, I will honor. Notice what he says next in verse 16. I will satisfy yet they something great about God be satisfied. You could try everything else in this, would you throw that back up to me where to go clinical how to fish never know what you can see if anyone rented the notice. If you would.

Verse 16 I will satisfy all of this with long life will I satisfy him.

You know God doesn't always give a lot of years he's not guarantee that to us, but he has promised whatever years you have. He can satisfy them. God focuses on quality, not necessarily quantity notice. If you would last. He says I will in verse 16. Show him my salvation. What's interesting is that God is saying there in verse 16 that I will show him my salvation.

Which means the Messiah has not come yet. It means that I will show him my salvation until salvation, and that is through the person of Jesus Christ. This is literally prophecy here in verse 16 that I will one day show you my salvation, and it is in the person of Jesus Christ.

Remember, in this day Moses, when you get saved. Holy Spirit income into your life. Holy Spirit had come.

Yet Jesus came and when Jesus ascended back. He said now I leave you the comfort of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit did work all through the Old Testament but the Holy Spirit did not automatically embody a believer the moment they put their faith and trust in Christ until Jesus Christ ascended back into heaven and promise from that point that the down payment.

The promise that I'm coming again is that now when you get saved I will put the Holy Spirit in your life while are see who God is what he will do.

God says this is what I'm going to do what's the point of all this preacher last.

I want you to see this is why God will do it in this the same reason why God will do it in your life like verse one very very interesting. After verse member, Psalm 90, Moses says we used to be our habitation. We used to dwell with you God that we wandered off we we were to word were going through all this and this is why I believe this was written near the end of their journey.

Moses probably this point that I can't go to the promised land.

And we're the ones that have left you it and we're the ones that have that used to be. We were formerly close to you got what we wanted.

Also verse nine of chapter 91 is Moses telling God were to come back close to you, and when working to get this thing right. Look at verse one he that dwell within the secret place of the most high shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

Look at verse nine. This is God speaking.

By the way, in verse nine, because thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge, you save preacher weight what why would God say my refugee is literally referring to the title that Moses had just given to him.

He is saying. Remember me, it would be like me looking at you and I'm brother Daniel member Pastor while I am not my pastor on your past brother Joe was my best and I know have you mastered it and understand all that doesn't bother me one bit that I think is the greatest pastor ever in history. Don't you you can say I made it on your nerves are well by saying anything to get. He's the best ever trust me what God is saying here is this lesson because notice verse nine because thou hast made the Lord Jehovah, which is my refuge and the most high, thy habitation habitation. What where you live where you dwell, verse one Moses says he that dwell in or abided for living in the secret place of the most high shall abide live well under the shadow of the Almighty. Now I want to ask brother Ben, if you would put this diagram up on the screen and I want you to understand how this might be hard. I know this is not working as was out today everybody's conflict over here. She might not be able to see it luck.

This is a diagram of how obviously, the children of Israel would have made camp as they wandered through the wilderness. If you'll notice in the very center is what they call the tabernacle that enclosed or house of the holy of holies surrounded by them. Obviously, you'll see all you know all the different things we have the different tribes that are surrounded on the outside of the can't you have Mariah you have a Hyatt you have all these folks in the middle. At the tabernacle where you see on the one hand it says Moses and the prophets. That is where prophets would come in.

That's where the Levites would come in if they needed, but Moses was the only one during the time of wandering through the wilderness. Moses is the one that went into the holy of holies Moses was the one that communed with God and Moses was the only one allowed in their Moses always made camp. He always had his tent set up right there at the door of the tabernacle and all way around is obscene to try camp of Reuben, the camp of Ephraim in the camp of Judah and out of the camp of Judah by the way was the line of Christ, the lineage of Christ. Jacob son Judah, not Jacob, son Joseph, but Jacob son Judah added Judah's line.

The line of progress is where the line of Jesus Christ eventually comes over, they would all Around this diagram has how many there would be from each camp there at this particular time is a preacher what the world is all this mean you got understand when Moses wrote Psalm 91 verse one.

He says this he that dwell in the secret place of the most high shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

Now the secret place of the most high was the holy of holies inside of the tabernacle.

That's what it was always call was the secret place of the most time next to the tabernacle, or next to the secret place in the center of the camp was the tent of Moses it was Moses literally who dwelled in the secret place of the most high, the shadow of the Almighty. Say what you mean the shadow of the Almighty. Look at me folks every day, there would be a pillar of cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night and that means every day, a pillar of cloud would be directly over the tabernacle, which means as Moses and Moses would always camp if you'll notice on where Moses campus at the entrance of the tabernacle, the holy of holies was always in the backside of the tabernacle Moses tent was always right there at the door and the opening of the holy of holies. That means this that literally when God's cloud would hover over the tabernacle, he would literally hover over Moses, 10 and at night when the pillar of cloud would hang over that camp. It would literally hang over the tent of Moses use a preacher what the world are you saying are you ready with here is the danger of living on the fringe view understand the closer you camp toward God, the safer you are. Moses literally said he that dwells in the most secret place he that dwells under the Almighty under the shadow of the Almighty, that is exactly why have you noticed if you would've verse seven he said a thousand shall fall at thy side 10,000 shall the right hand, but it shall not come nigh. The isn't that interesting. Look at verse 10, there shall no evil befall me, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling isn't that interesting notice. If you would.

Verse 13 thou shalt tread upon the lion and the end of the young lion and the Dragon shalt thou trample under feet. If you'll notice all the way through this chapter even said that the arrows will not get to the me I want you to get it because Moses camp closer to God. He was the safest line in the camp anybody to get the Moses I had to go through every body else first. There was rank after rank after rank after rank that anybody would have to get through before they could get. So Moses is what Moses is telling the children of Israel.

If you want to be safe and if you want to be blessed, and if you want to be your fortress and you want him to be you… Well, you got me folks closer you get to God, the safer you're going to. We live in a generation that don't want to hear preacher talk about being close to God. We don't want to hear about holiness. We don't want to hear about righteousness. We don't want to hear about anything. But you got understand there's just a preacher up in the pulpit yelling and letting you know it's not to be meaningless not to get you angry and is not to make if they were against everything you say for the closer you get to God. Moses is saying we wanted all we've all gone the way and now all this is happened will all get back under the shadow of the Almighty. If will just get back to being close to the class safer will be what is what is God saying verse nine. Look at verse nine. If you would, because thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the most time, thy habitation, there shall no evil but faulty verse 11 for he shall give his angels charge over the to keep the in all thy ways. They shall bear the up with their hands talking about his angels less thou dash thy foot against a look at God saying this because you've made me your dwelling place, I'll take care of you forgive me folks I want to understand further away from the cloud we get, the more danger we are in. Why does God do all these things.

Why do we know that God will deliver. How do we know God will cover how do we know God shall protect, how do we know God's going to be our Elohim. How do we know God's will be our Jehovah. How do we know God's going to be our refuge.

How do we know that God can be our shelter in the time of the storm.

How do we know is going to set us on hot how do we know we can answer.

How do we know he's going to be with us we know is going on arrest. How do we know is going to satisfy.

I'll tell you the only way we know is if you live put your house close to God as you can what it takes. You can't look at me, folks. You can't sit here on the outskirts of town and expect to be near a safe is when you're camped up right next to the town.
