God’s Rest

AN AMAZING FACT:  Tutankhamun is probably the most famous Egyptian pharaoh and is better known as King Tut. This boy king died in his late teens and remained at rest for more than 3,300 years. But that changed in 1922 when Egyptologist Howard Carter, who was excavating in the Valley of the Kings, discovered the king’s tomb.

Still, the tomb came close to escaping discovery altogether! Carter had been searching for the tomb for a number of years on behalf of English patron Lord Carnarvon, who later decided that enough time and money had been expended with little return. However, Carter managed to persuade his patron to fund one more season, and within days of resuming excavation, the missing tomb was found—full of treasures.

Today the tomb still contains the pharaoh’s remains, hidden from view inside the outermost of three coffins. He is believed to be the only pharaoh still residing in the Valley of the Kings. King Tut’s tomb has yielded some of the greatest treasures of antiquity, but the most priceless treasure of all time is actually in an empty tomb outside Jerusalem!

Psalm 92 is a song for the Sabbath, a day of rest. It teaches us to praise God for the works of the past and the future. Jesus, after His crucifixion, rested in a tomb on the Sabbath. But Christ rose from the grave and is now in heaven interceding for us. This Psalm teaches us to give glory to the Lord. Some people might praise ancient kings who still lay in their tombs. We praise a living God who is coming again and in whom we can find true rest.

KEY BIBLE TEXTS
Those that be planted in the house of the LORD shall flourish in the courts of our God. They shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be fat and flourishing; Psalms 92:13-14
