Psalm 45 and The Church

Q. Re: False Prophets. In one place you said, “If you want to have hope you don’t have to dig through the Old Testament to misappropriate” a verse in Scripture…”You only have to look in the New Testament…” Then, three paragraphs later, you present Psalm 45 as an application for the church today. Hello???

Sounds like, let’s maintain the negative Scriptures for the Jewish people and only the good ones for the Gentile church. Are we not to learn from Scripture? After all, it was written for our learning and the Jewish people were the example.

A. There are prophecies in the Old Testament that are written for the Church and while 2 Chron. 7:14 is not one of them, Psalm 45 is. In the context of the Psalm, the king can only be the Messiah. In verse 2 God has blessed Him forever. In verse 4 He rides forth victoriously in behalf of truth, humility, and righteousness. In verse 5 the nations fall beneath His feet. In verse 6 He’s called God but in verse 7 He has a God who has set Him above His companions and anointed Him with the oil of joy. Now tell me, who is called His bride? Is it Israel, or is it the Church?
