Psalm 114 Mar. 6  1When Israel went forth out of Egypt, the house of Jacob from a people of foreign language; 2Judah became His sanctuary, Israel His kingdom. 3The sea saw it, and fled. The Jordan was driven back. 4The mountains skipped like rams, the little hills like lambs. 5What was it, you sea, that you fled? You Jordan, that you turned back? 6You mountains, that you skipped like rams; you little hills, like lambs? 7Tremble, you earth, at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the God of Jacob, 8who turned the rock into a pool of water, the flint into a spring of waters.   


114:2 Israel His kingdom- Israel were declared God’s Kingdom on earth with Him as their King, exercising total sovereignty over them (Ex. 19:5,6). But they wanted a human king and worshipped other gods, so that God overturned that Kingdom with the intention to re-establish it on earth at Christ’s return to eternally reign on David’s throne in Jerusalem (Ez. 21:25-27; Acts 1:6). The future Kingdom of God on earth will strictly speaking be a re-establishment of the Kingdom that once was, again inviting us to understand it as an entity to be literally established on earth. The Bible doesn’t teach that the righteous go to Heaven at death to enjoy their salvation there.
