This is one of my answers on the Q/A at Yahoo. It is about our soul cleaving to the dust, Psm. 119:25.
David is NOT the speaker in Psalm. Jesus is. This is Jesus speaking. It is pure prophecy. God made man of the dust of the ground, breathed into his nostrils the breathe of life and this dust man became a living soul.
That soul is now imprisoned inside that DUST. This is how that ‘serpent’ was made to go on his ‘belly’ and dust became his ‘meat’.
It is totally spiritual words. Man is now imprisoned inside these dust bodies and we cannot get out. Jesus was the same. Jesus is the one who had declared all the judgments of God’s mouth, V13.
Until you learn to read the Word of God seeing Jesus in it, not David, not other earthly men, you will miss its great truth. The Word of God is about Jesus, not David. Jesus is called David in several Scriptures.
So this verse shows that dust is the ‘serpents’ meat or the way we now live = inside a frame of dust. Our soul now cleaves to this dust frame which is my ‘house’ or body. it is a prison. Man was once free, as the anointed cherub in Eze. 28. He was not in a frame of dust at that time = the beginning of God’s son, Adam.
Yet everyone tries to make that old serpent be a snake. Such foolishness. God put Adam into a body of dust, AFTER HE SINNED IN EZE. 28. So Jesus was also imprisoned in the DUST. His soul was cleaving to that body of dust.
Death frees us from this DUST. The house of dust decays, but the soul is set free. Glorious truth.
