Psalm 90 is the oldest psalm. It was written by Moses and I believe it has prophetic significance of greatest importance for all Christians who are living in the last days.
Some scholars believe that Moses was near the end of his life when he wrote Psalm 90. This would have made Moses about 120 years old when it was written. Yet, even though Moses was 120 years old, he said mans' years were only 70 or 80 years long. His words in verse 10 read as follows: "The days of our years are threescore years and ten (70); and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years (80), yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away." (Emphasis mine).
This is of utmost importance in light of what Jesus said concerning end time events in Matthew 24:34.
"Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away till all these things take place."
As I write this, it has been over 62 years since Israel was re-established. In a series of events that were indeed miraculous, Israel became a nation against overwhelming odds. I urge you to read about the events surrounding the war which broke out when Israel was established as a nation in one day as declared in the prophecy of Isaiah 66:8.
From the destruction of the temple in 70 A.D. until the rebirth of Israel in one day in 1948 there hadn't been a single Bible prophecy fulfilled! There were events which had transpired that were of prophetic significance, but not one actual Biblical fulfillment that we can be certain about. What I am saying is that the clock definitely started ticking in 1948.
If we subtract the seven tribulation years from the seventy years spoken about by Moses...well, you can see the significance if you are a believer in the pretibulation rapture of the bride. We are going home soon!
I don't know when for certain. At least not yet. I know the time left for this generation is almost completely run out! I suspect the destruction of Damascus and perhaps the war of Gog and Magog could be within weeks or months.
The call to go home will be soon. In The Last Battle, written by C. S. Lewis, is a description of the land we are longing for. I've read these words over and over. C. S. Lewis had a feel for that heavely place and he put it into words we can all understand.
"It is hard to explain how this sunlit land was different from the old Narnia as it would be to tell you how the fruits of that country taste. Perhaps you will get some idea of it if you think like this. You may have been in a room in which there was a window that looked out on a lovely bay of the sea or a green valley that wound away among the mountains. And in the wall of that room opposite to the window there may have been a looking-glass. As you turned away from the window you suddenly caught sight of that sea or that valley, all over again, in the looking-glass. And the sea in the mirror, or the valley in the mirror, were in one sense just the same as the real ones: yet at the same time they somehow different -- deeper, more wonderful, more like places in a story: in a story you have never heard but want very much to know. The difference between the old Narnia and the new Narnia was like that. The new one was a deeper country: every rock and flower and blade of grass looked as if it meant more. I can't describe it any better than that: if you ever get there you will know what I mean.
It was the Unicorn who summed up what everyone was feeling. He stamped his right forehoof on the ground and neighed, and then cried:
I have come home at last! This is my real country! I belong here. This is the land I have been looking for all my life, though I never knew it till now..... Come further up, come further in!"
The land I have been looking for all my life is just on the other side of the door. The call to go home is about to be heard. We may have days, or weeks, or months...but we don't have years!
