Beyond the Psalms, Into the Messianic Age of Redemption, "The Psalms of Ascent" by Dr. Robert Lehton
Man from a historical perspective has always been intrigued with a search for euphoria. Men have been preoccupied with the intoxication of "going up" to higher levels of physical, emotional, and spiritual experiences since the beginning. Mountain climbing, flight into space, and history records the "Tower of Babel" as man's attempt to reach G-d by his own strength. There is an inherent need for man to find significance in the searching for higher "peak experiences", by attempting to find the gateway that leads to the "ascent to heaven." Man has a great need to attach himself to G-d. Man's search for meaning, significance, and standing at the very gates of heaven to search for G-d's presence is the foundation of most faiths. This 3rd volume of redemption called "Let's Go Up" is an exegesis of the Songs of Ascent written by King David.
"I was glad when they said to me, 'The House of the Adonai (Lord)! Let's go!' Our feet were already standing at your gates, Yerushalayim (Jerusalem). Yerushalayim, built as a city fostering friendship and unity. The tribes have gone up there, the tribes of Adonai, as a witness of Israel, to give thanks to the name of Adonai," (The Complete Jewish Bible)
This is volume three of seven studies on the Book of Psalms and will be a launching pad of God's grace, love, and redemption to mankind "Beyond the Psalms, Into the Messianic Age of Redemption" is an exegesis study of man's deepest yearning for redemption and restoration of his body, soul, and spirit.
