The Faithful Have Vanished 12 To the choirmaster: according to The Sheminith. 1 A Psalm of David. 1 Save, O Lord , for m the godly one is gone; for the faithful have vanished from among the children of man. 2 Everyone n utters lies to his neighbor; with o flattering lips and p a double heart they speak. 3 May the Lord cut off all o flattering lips, the tongue that makes q great boasts, 4 those who say, “With our tongue we will prevail, our lips are with us; who is master over us?” 5 “Because r the poor are plundered, because the needy groan, s I will now arise,” says the Lord ; “I will place him in the t safety for which he longs.” 6 u The words of the Lord are pure words, like silver refined in a furnace on the ground, purified seven times. 7 You, O Lord , will keep them; you will guard us 1 from this generation forever. 8 On every side the wicked prowl, as vileness is exalted among the children of man.

Sermon notes
The LORD's words are utterly pure and trustworthy Intro This feels like game over. Even the faithful ones are gone. Connects to Psalm 11 in that sense; the foundations really do seem to have been destroyed. Lies, smooth talk, deceit etc. In contrast, God's words are utterly pure; can't get purer 1. Everyone lies - but will God put things right (v1-4) v1 It seems like God's people have finally been extinguished v2 And all that is left is lies, flattery, 'double heart' [double speak] v3-4 God will punish the boastful tongue! Application Lies and deceit, and mixed motives, and smooth talk; the world, the church, the heart. If it were not for the saving blood of Jesus, the news that God will cut off flattering lips should terrify us, as we are guilty. The Bible and history teach us to remember that we don't know what we don't know - Elijah's 'I'm the only one'. Soviet russia. And even if everyone had vanished, our God can make things out of nothing and can raise the dead - so we trust him! 2. God promises to save, and his words are completely reliable (v5-8) v5 because of the little guy. Meaning of 'poor and needy'. (cf destruction of sodom and gomorrah; the 'great cry' Genesis 18.20) v5 answers the 'arise, O Lord' of Psalm 9.19 v5 - this has happened in Jesus. the OT is 'will do', the NT is 'done' (hence, baptism is continuous but discontinuous!) v5 the 'safety'/'salvation' which he 'pants for' v6 completely pure; can't get purer. This verse is the hinge, the reason for the confidence of v7-8 v7-8 contrast with v1-2. Since God's words are utterly reliable, we can trust his preservation of his people. 'Guard/keep' - cf Eden. or Psalm 121. Application So, we take God at his word. [ Significance of 'Adam' and 'Eve' as names.] And since we are people of the truth, we tell the truth [cf emphasis in Paul's letters]; bring stuff into the open, live in the real world. Isn't this all about Easter? On Good Friday, the Faithful One really has been extinguished! And then God says, I will arise! Let our God be true, and every man a liar. Glory of God: His words are completely pure and true. So trust him! Why we need careful Bible handling. Our lazy interpretations are not true; but his word, rightly received, is. He vindicates the upright! He arose for the afflicted man on the cross. FCF: The tongue and heart boastful of great things. Therefore, lies; false realities; false selves. Person of Jesus: He is the one saying truly, truly. My words will never pass away. The truth will set you free. He is the godly one, faithful one, removed from the land! Jesus is the poor plundered one, the needy one groaning from the cross. Work of Jesus: God will cut off all lying lips. That means all of us! But instead, Jesus is cut off. His crying voice is silenced on the cross. God arose (cf Psalm 9.19), and raised Jesus of Nazareth to the throne. Union with Jesus: Now we have the security for which we long - in the sure gospel word and the person of Jesus himself. His very presence represents and intercedes for us before the Father. We share his life of pure truth, so we live lives of pure truth; speaking the truth, confronting the lies, being unafraid of the truth. Wrap-up We can't get a surer place to stand than God's words.
