29.16: Psalms of Ascents: Songs, Focused on God, of Trouble, Trust and Triumph

Way back in Deuteronomy, Moses, speaking for God, explained that the Israelites had to celebrate 7 festivals each year. They were Passover, Harvest, Weeks (Pentecost), in the Spring (which Jesus fulfilled). Then Rosh Ha-Shanah (Feast of Trumpets), Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement), and Tabernacles (Shelters) or Sukkot, in the fall. These Jesus will fulfill when he comes the second time. Check out the “God’s Calendar” video below that explains all this.

Three of these festivals were a must: Passover, Pentecost and Tabernacles. In ancient times, people walked. Jerusalem was built on 5 mountains. It was an uphill climb from anywhere. Check out the video below of a modern-day hike from Jericho to Jerusalem. So, as the people walked, they sang these psalms.

These 15 psalms, from 120-134, are organized in 5 groups of 3. Each triad takes us from trouble, trust and to triumph. They speak of trouble and call to God, they confirm their trust in the Lord and then they triumph in the Lord’s victory over their problems.

That’s how our lives should be. These are short, so we’ll go through each one. Let’s dig in….
