34 Wait [qavah] on the
LORD [Y@hovah], and keep [shamar] his way [derek], and he
shall exalt [ruwm] thee to inherit [yarash] the land ['erets]: when the
wicked [rasha`] are cut off [karath], thou shalt see [ra'ah] it.
34 Wait for the LORD and keep his way, and he will exalt you to
inherit the land; you will look on when the wicked are cut off. ESV
Among the many things that are going to happen at the end of human history, here we are told that you as a believer in Christ are going to be a witness when all unbelievers are finally terminated from existence.
The word here for cut off, means, to put to an end, such that the thing being put to an end is terminated permanently. Therefore this is a reference to unbelievers, which are herein called wicked, but this does not refer to Christians who happen to be following a wicked path during their life.
The end of history is in reference here, because believers will be a witness to this final action against unbelievers.
Throughout history, wicked people of the world have been removed, and sometimes this removal is witnessed, or heard about or read about by others. But never in history prior to this, have people all over the world actually seen their removal.
And we are told in this Psalm, that you will look on. And, looking on, means just that. You will actually see the event of unbeliever removal, when Christ executes the final judgment against all unbelievers.
We know from the book of Revelation, that there will be one final resurrection of unbelievers at the end of the millennium.
They will all stand before Christ at the Great White Throne. This is a judgment, a final judgment, that everyone should fear with great fear and not want to be a part of. But when history ends, all unbelievers will be resurrected and brought before Christ, and they are given their final judgment, which is the Lake of Fire. And then that judgment will be carried out and they will all be removed from our sight.
We as believers in Christ, will be in the audience, so to speak, when this all occurs.
And then after the final judgment for unbelievers, we will all again witness the destruction of this universe, and then the creation of a new universe, and then we will enter into life for the rest of eternity. That is our last and final and greatest inheritance.
And while unbelievers will have been sent to the ultimate disgrace, we as believers will receive the ultimate exultation in our inheritance.
These studies are a part of the massive daily study web site at DailyBibeStudy.Org, and are written, so that you can come to Christ if you have not done so already, and therefore not be lost forever.
And if you have already believed in Christ, then these studies are written so you can learn and understand and grow in your spiritual life, so that you can come to the full knowledge of Christ, so that you can fulfill your meaning and purpose in life as God intended for you, and so you can qualify for a phenomenal eternal reward which you will have forever. To ignore this opportunity to pursue a daily study means you will be incomplete, unfulfilled and you will lose out, big time.
The Daily Bible Study is online, making it possible as never before in all of human history, to advance in ones relationship with God, through Christ, and to complete yourself beyond your imagination.
But you have to decide to make that commitment. No one else can study for you. You have to do that yourself.
