    A memory device: Riddle me this: Flying a 727 through the friendly skies is cool, flying a Psalms 72127 through the heavenlies is just better. Why?

    Psalms of Solomon, part 2 : Psalms 72127, Remembering the work of the Lord.
    A mnemonic with the Lord reign and work at center

    Solomon once wrote that proverbial wisdom was a riddle
    back to the riddle: Flying a 727 through the friendly skies is cool, flying a Psalms 72127 through the heavenlies is just better

    Huh?

    What might that have to do with Solomon, who reigned in peace and prosperity
    and built the house for the Lord

    Answer?

    Two Psalms of or from Solomon
    split 72127
    into 72 and 127

    Psalm 72 is about the Lord's reign
    The Lord will reign forever, Solomon was a glimpse and preview of a greater reign
    End of book 2
    Fulfillment of the prayers of David
    The author and finisher of the faith of David in the reigning Messiah
    is the author and finisher of our faith as well

    Psalm 127 is about the Lord
    Solomon built 'a house' for the Lord in Jerusalem, a temple
    Solomon writes the Lord must be the one to build 'the House'
    Psalm 127 is at the middle of the psalms of ascent
    Psalms of ascent sung by pilgrims on the way to ‘the house’ of the Lord
    Solomon will build 'the house' but it is vain unless the Lord build's 'the House'

    Put them together
    seven- ' t w o ' -one-two- seven
    Seven- ' t o ' -one-to-seven
    Psalms of Ascents
    Seven psalms starting 120 to 126
    the center Psalm 127 Unless the Lord builds ‘the house’
    Seven psalms ending 127 to 133


    Psalm 127

    ......................................./\.......................

    Psalm of ascents Psalm 120 through Psalm 133
    Songs sung by pilgrims on way to 'The House', the temple


    7 steps up to the top 7 steps down
    Shaped like a temple in a sense, the Lord at the top
    At the center is the Lord building ‘
    Whether his temple, his kingdom, his church, cities or families
    Unless the Lord is in it , the effort is vanity

    The city with foundations is built by God
    The author and finisher of the faith of Abraham who looked for such a city
    is the author and finisher of our faith as well

    The Lord must build ‘the house’
    Building, watching, waking, anxiously eating, sleeping…. All vain
    Unless
    The Lord is in it.
    Does that mean you shouldn’t Build, watching, wake, anxiously eat, sleep?
    No, but hold the anxiety part

    The Lord blesses, gives inheritance
    Children are a blessing and an inheritance
    Hold the anxiety, you will talk to your enemies in the gate fearlessly
    Talk to those outside the kingdom, share the gospel, spiritual children may surprise you
    The Lord's house will go up and the gates of hell will go down

    It is vain to 'watch out' for the enemy
    In the Lord you may engage them with the gospel
    but it is the Lord who closes the deal
    and He who builds His house

    72 and 127
    72127
    A palindrome
    72 is the end of the prayers of David, the Lord reigns forever, Solomon was preview to another who is the author and perfecter of our faith
    7 to 1 to 7
    127 is at the center of the song of ascents, the Lord is the foundation and builder of 'the House', Solomon was preview to another city, the city that has foundations, whose designer and builder is God.

    Thankfully easy to remember,
    something easy enough for me to remember at least
