Psalm 45: Praising Christ as the King

Posted on Dec 16, 2011 | 2 comments

“My heart overflows with a good matter; I speak what I have composed concerning the King…” (Psalm 45:1)
“…Her garment is a woven work inwrought with gold” (Psalm 45:13b)
“She will be led to the King in embroidered clothing;…” (Psalm 45:14a)

An overview of the church in Los Angeles’ study of Psalm 45 in Fall 2011. Psalm 45 is a praise to Christ the King, who is typified by Solomon. It is a song of love describing the virtue of Christ and His bride who is clothed with Christ as her righteousness. This lovely psalm, written on the occasion of a literal wedding, gives us insight in the coming wedding, the true royal wedding, between Christ and His bride. May all the believers in Christ be prepared for that coming wedding day!


  1. What a wonder that the descendants of Korah, of a top rebel, can through God’s mercy be brought back to be among God’s people and write this marvelous song of love! This is truly a picture of us all. This reminded me of Romans 5:10 which says, “For if we, being enemies, were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more we will be saved in His life, having been reconciled”. Thank You Lord Jesus! Let us all enjoy and love the Lord with our first love in order to be prepared with these two garments and make ourselves ready for the marriage of the Lamb (Rev 19:7-9)!

  2. Wow, how awesome that Psalm 45, written around 1,000 years before Christ, still portrays the same wedding feast of Christ and His Bride (the believers) as presented in Revelation 19! The Bible truly is the Word of God! Thank you, brother, for opening up this psalm to us. So many riches found in just one psalm!

    Lord, keep our hearts overflowing with a good matter–which is just God Himself! Our tongues would be the pen of a ready writer, ready to write our affectionate love for You! (Psa 45:1)
