Notes

Shortly means soon. For God a day is like a thousand years and a thousand years is like a day. Time is not an issue. But He puts it in perspective for our sakes.

When Joseph was asked by Pharoah to interpret his two dreams, he told him that the predicted events would shortly come to pass. In fact they happened in their life time. But when refering to universal events in the Book of Revelation, events that will 'shortly come to pass' have taken millenia to happen and are still unfolding. The same language is used for events within a lifetime and events that take millenia to unfold. Yet because God has said, we can be certain that they will take place.

This kind of language also implies that God is able. He asks "Is my hand shortened at all, that it cannot redeem?"" What God has said He will do He is able to perform. We can believe it, even though it may have happened in the past. We can believe it even when it has not yet happened. We may not be able to see, fathom or explain it but can base our faith on what God has already done in history, and personally in our own lives. Crucial to our assurance of salvation is the fact that because He has promised God can do it.

Our time on this earth is short compared to eternity. By reminding God of this, like David, we are reminded of our mortality and weaknesses.

We may get discouraged as we see the apparent success of an evil world. But the scriptures show that God is fair and just and wickedness lasts for just a short time. In fact it lasts only for a moment.

God will shortly bring it to pass

Gen.41.32 And for that the dream was doubled unto Pharaoh twice; it is because the thing is established by God, and God will shortly bring it to pass.

 

Is the LORD'S hand waxed short?

 

Num.11.23 And the LORD said unto Moses, Is the LORD'S hand waxed short? thou shalt see now whether my word shall come to pass unto thee or not.

The LORD began to cut Israel short

2King.10.32 In those days the LORD began to cut Israel short: and Hazael smote them in all the coasts of Israel;

 

Night into day

 

Job.17.12 They change the night into day: the light is short because of darkness.

The triumphing of the wicked is short

 

Job.20.5 That the triumphing of the wicked is short, and the joy of the hypocrite but for a moment?

Remember how short my time is

Psa.89.45 The days of his youth hast thou shortened: thou hast covered him with shame. Selah.
Psa.89.47 Remember how short my time is: wherefore hast thou made all men in vain?

 

He shortened my days

Psa.102.23 He weakened my strength in the way; he shortened my days.

The years of the wicked shall be shortened

The covering narrower

Isa.28.20 For the bed is shorter than that a man can stretch himself on it: and the covering narrower than that he can wrap himself in it.


the covering narrower

Have I no power to deliver?

 

Isa.50.2 Wherefore, when I came, was there no man? when I called, was there none to answer? Is my hand shortened at all, that it cannot redeem? or have I no power to deliver? behold, at my rebuke I dry up the sea, I make the rivers a wilderness: their fish stinketh, because there is no water, and dieth for thirst.

I make the rivers a wilderness

Behold, the LORD'S hand is not shortened

 

Isa.59.1 Behold, the LORD'S hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear:

They prophesy a lie unto you

Jer.27.16 Also I spake to the priests and to all this people, saying, Thus saith the LORD; Hearken not to the words of your prophets that prophesy unto you, saying, Behold, the vessels of the LORD'S house shall now shortly be brought again from Babylon: for they prophesy a lie unto you.

 

I will shortly pour out my fury upon thee

 

Eze.7.8 Now will I shortly pour out my fury upon thee, and accomplish mine anger upon thee: and I will judge thee according to thy ways, and will recompense thee for all thine abominations.

The upper chambers

 

Eze.42.5 Now the upper chambers were shorter: for the galleries were higher than these, than the lower, and than the middlemost of the building.
