Let God Arise

The Ark of the Covenant, which represented God's presence with Israel, was designed to be carried by the priests. Whenever the cloud of God's presence lifted and moved forward, the people would follow it.  The priests would lift the ark, and the next phase of its journey would begin.  Each time the ark was lifted, Moses would say, "Rise up, O Lord! And let Your enemies be scattered.  And let those who hate You flee before You." (Numbers 10:35)

Following the tradition of Moses, David also recited this verse when he had the ark moved from the house of Obed-Edom to Jerusalem. It was at this time that Psalm 68 was likely penned. The procession of the ark to Jerusalem was accompanied by great celebration and singing. Thereafter, it likely became part of the yearly ceremonial procession that took place during the festival of Sukkot.

The imagery of God arising refers to His rising up from His throne in heaven and coming down to save His people.  Thus, the very first verse of Psalm 68, "Let God arise..." is essentially the Maranatha cry of the Old Testament.

We invite you to gather with us this year to celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles with great joy, lifting up our lives as an offering as we carry His presence, and joining with the Maranatha cry, "Let God Arise and let His enemies be scattered."
