Psalm 96:1-3, 10-13
The Lord is coming. His arrival is so close we can almost taste it. The psalmist invites us to sing and rejoice at the universal reign of God. The nations witness it. All of creation—heaven and earth, field and forest, sea and dry land—are called to join in praise of the Lord.
While this psalm is linked more with our Lord’s second advent, it stills refers to “His coming!” In that day, He will come to judge the world in truth and in righteousness. For now, we wait and we watch for the signs of His coming. We long for the day when we will see the culmination of our salvation and “thy kingdom come; thy will be done, on earth, even as it is now in heaven!”
