Psalm 149:6-9. Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two-edged sword in their hand; to execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people; to bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron; to execute upon them the judgment written: this honour have all his saints. Praise ye the LORD.
The high praises of God are like a two-edged sword in your hand. The word of the Lord that the Holy Spirit speaks and reveals to your heart is called the sword of the Spirit. (Eph 6:17). That sword has two sides. While that word comforts you, it discomforts the enemy!
As you praise God for His word and with His word, you “bind kings and nobles with chains and irons.” This speaks of the evil spirits arrayed against us in this life. With the high praises of God in our mouth, we execute upon them the judgment which is written.
What judgment is that? Jesus declared, “It is finished!” We have a finished redemption in Christ. The work is done and the victory has been won. Now we declare it: “My sins are paid for. My redemption is accomplished. I’m redeemed from the curse of poverty, sickness, failure and lack. I’m redeemed from the curse of condemnation and the law. I am the righteousness of God in Christ, an heir of God and a joint-heir with Christ. All the blessings of God are mine in Him!”
To execute upon a judgment is legal terminology. When you “execute” upon a judgment of the court, it means that you send out an officer of the law to enforce and collect upon it.
As you declare the word of God, praise God for His word, and sing aloud upon your bed about His word, you enforce the redemption that belongs to you in Christ and you begin to taste and see that the Lord is good!
This honor belongs to all the saints!
We enforce the judgment that has been written with the confession of our mouths!
