Let us examine the main points of Psalm one and what they mean so, we can understand with certainty the message of the Psalmist that we might do what is necessary to save ourselves, and if not us, in the days ahead, the generations after us.
The main points of Psalm one we are to keep in mind are theses: “Blessed is the man that walked not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful.” Psalm 1:1.
The blessing is not on account of reading the law or obeying God’s moral law because the moral has condemned us to death on account of Adam. Therefore, the blessing is the result of obeying God’s instruction because of the penalty and the coming Judgment of God to punish sin.
The result of the blessing, is the escape and survival of the coming judgment. And so that we might prepare for this coming judgment, God provides us the law, which is God’s instruction, not his moral law that we might prepare and survive.
Revelation 1:7 “Behold, he comes with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.”
The righteous man is said to be blessed because upon realizing he was in danger, the blessed man ignored the counsel of the ungodly, which was to ignore the counsel of God. And because he believed the word of God. Acted upon the law to save his life. Therefore, he was and is a blessed man. The result! He survived the judgement.
