      Psalms 119:1-8                                         Sep. 5 - Oct. 2, 2019
      1 ALEPH. Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of the LORD.
      2 Blessed are they that keep his testimonies, and that seek him with the whole heart.
      3 They also do no iniquity: they walk in his ways.
      4 Thou hast commanded us to keep thy precepts diligently.
      5 O that my ways were directed to keep thy statutes!
      6 Then shall I not be ashamed, when I have respect unto all thy commandments.
      7 I will praise thee with uprightness of heart, when I shall have learned thy righteous judgments.
      8 I will keep thy statutes: O forsake me not utterly.
      The following verse stood out to me...
      5 O that my ways were directed to keep thy statutes!
      At first glance it seemed to me this person’s soul is poured out with intense desire to have God’s direction in keeping His Word.
      I made a small wood fire in our backyard for my granddaughter, Julia, since she would be staying overnight with us. My wife and Julia stayed outside at the fire for about half an hour. Then, I found myself alone to watch the fire die out on a particularly lovely evening. So I took my verse from above and began to repeat it for memorization. As I repeated the verse, I tried to contemplate the words and apply them to what I was seeing around me. 
      The moon and stars were out now peering through the scattered clouds above.
      [Genesis 1:16 And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also. Genesis 1:17 And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, Genesis 1:18 And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good.]
      Thought 1         
      The moon has stayed his course since the day God created him, also the stars, obeying the statutes directed by God from the first day they were created. Can you imagine God’s direction to the Moon and stars, “moon you will have a path through the sky above the earth, stars you will occupy the firmament above the moon and be clearly visible in the cloudless night sky.”
      Then, the trees, grass, even the air we breathe obey the statues God gave them from the beginning. None of these creations have souls, none have hearts, none have intelligence, but they all observe God’s statutes, His instructions for their limited time on earth.
      Thought 2
      What if we were like the moon, stars, trees, grass, or the other creations which have no soul? We would be directed to keep God’s statutes without choosing to keep them. This is not the image of God, there would be no dominion over other creatures, or over the earth. We would not be capable of experiencing the joy and peace of learning the love of God
      Genesis 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
      Philippians 4:7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
      Thought 3 (October 2, 2019)
      Is the psalmist pleading God to force God’s statutes to become the man’s ways? No, he is speaking of his own failure in keeping God’s statutes and his desire to keep them, very much like Paul in Romans 7:14-25.
      God doesn’t work through force to turn men from their ways that they would desire His statutes or desire God Himself. Men must reject (repent) put aside his own ways and voluntarily seek God and His statutes.

I Am The Lord Your God!

I am the Lord thy God.

 

   The word of the LORD; Exodus 20 verse 1-2…”And God spake all these words, saying, I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.”

 

    “I am the LORD your GOD.” This is the first word God speaks to his people Israel before he gives the law. It is that of a King speaking to his subjects before he gives a decree…”Harken unto me, this is the law given forth from I your King!”

 

   HE is the ONE. The Unisonai, the perfect. How appropriate that GOD’s first commandment is the first and addresses the relationship of THE ONE and THE ONLY, THE BEGINNING and the ENDING to his people.

 

    Verse 3, the word of the LORD; “Thou shalt have no other gods before me.”

 

    A striking command from the LORD and how many so often read it improperly. Word of the LORD; Deuteronomy 6:4…”Hear, O Israel:The LORD our God [is] one LORD.” And verse 5…”And thou shalt

love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.”

 

    What does the LORD mean when he says “Shall have no other gods before me!” It is a term of ranking as so many confuse it so? Is not GOD a jealous GOD? Does not his jealousy affirm he shall not share himself among other GODs?

 

   “You shall have no others before me.” Means. “You will not have anything before my face! You better not bring an abomination before my eyes to whore over it!”

 

   Does he not warn his people Israel? The word of the LORD…”Ye shall not go after other gods, of the gods of the people which [are] round about you; (For the LORD thy God [is] a jealous God among you) lest the anger of the LORD thy God be kindled against thee, and destroy thee from off the face of the earth.”

 

    And what did the Children of Israel do after GOD delivered them from Egypt? They went whoring after a filthy god of their making! To do abominations before it! To dance around it and do all manor of wickedness with it!

 

   The LORD is what?....the husband! He is the husband of the church his bride and when the bride goes and whores herself with another idol...OUR LORD GETS ENRAGED!

 

   Going after another GOD after you consider yourself saved is like a bride fornicating with another man, a filthy rotten whore who deserves death! That’s what’s going on in churches all over America and the world! Whores chasing after worldly idols and giving them glory over Christ! You go to church on Sunday and watch the “Hunger Games” an hour later….you….are…..a….filthy…..whore!

 

   Word of the LORD; Deuteronomy 28: 1 “And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe [and] to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the LORD thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth” Blessings of GOD will be given unto you and you shall know the power of his love...IF….you are a bride in faith but woe to you if you go a whoring against him and lust for the things and vermin of this world….for the world HATES YOUR CHRIST!

 

    Woe to you who go whoring after false Gods and worse refuse to defend the word of GOD against the enemies and liars and ministers of deception, the word of the LORD: “if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe to do all his commandments and his statutes which I command thee this day; that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee.”

 

    We have Christians today who excuse and make excuse and give excuse for the world...the word that HATES….OUR….CHRIST!

 

    World of the LORD; James 4:4…”Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.”

 

    If you excuse the world, if you teach your children to love the things of the world, if you say you can live with the world and love Christ...you are nothing better than a filthy rotten whore deserving the flames of hell.

 

  We have lost people who believe the Catholic Mary and put their blasphemous pope above GOD, Mormons who take the ramblings of a demon and practice Isis worship, you have Israel fornicating to a filthy golden calf! “We will NOT have this man to reign over us, there IS only one King who is Cesar...CRUCIFY HIM! CRUCIFY HIM!”

 

   What do you tell GOD when you let your child worship Disney, that filthy rotten rodent hell spawn or plaster their walls with Justin Beaver or you bring the NFL into Sunday services?

 

  “CRUCIFY HIM! CRUCIFY HIM! WE WILL NOT HAVE GOD TO REIGN OVER US!”

 

   People are putting Joel Osteen or Rick Warren or Benny Hinn or Billy Graham over Christ….filthy prosperity preachers of sinless salvation soul murdery….”CRUCIFY HIM! CRUCIFY HIM! WE WILL NOT HAVE GOD TO REIGN OVER US!”

 

   When you tell true King James bible believing by the word Christians to shut their mouths because something they said offends your weak little feelings…”CRUCIFY HIM! CRUCIFY HIM! WE WILL NOT HAVE GOD TO REIGN OVER US!”

 

   If you place anything of this world over GOD, if you are teaching your children that a whore like Lady Gaga deserves salvation and not a get in the face conviction word that shocks her from her debauchery and makes her realize she is a hell bound spawn of Satan….Your faith is weak, your belief is weak and your love for Christ is WEAK!

 

   There is but only ONE LORD and he has commanded us to war against this world, bring his word to the streets and get people convicted so they will truly be saved and not have their feelings slaked for but a season. If you don’t like what this is saying to you then you better examine yourself, do some talking with the LORD and see if your own beliefs are truly right with him.

    Blessed be our LORD, the ONE TRUE GOD!

we should always pray for the lost to be saved.

 

I have been praying for Silvester Stallone to get saved since 1994 I read a story recently he got saved.

 

Who is to say that praying for lady Gaga to get saved is wrong.

 

Be active in witnessing for Christ in your daily walk in this world, and be prepared to share the gospel in season and out, teach your children the ways of God.

 

this is a way to honor the one true God and our Lord Jesus Christ.

It is not our job to condemn or convict

 

It is our commission to tell the lost that they are one their way to hell. What is the gospel but that which speaks of the conviction of sin? The ways of sin IS death...a present condition. The lost are lost in their sin and thus dead to Christ. Telling a lost person that their sins are taking them to hell is not condemning or convicting but loving them with authority as Christ loved with all authority. So many Christians want to walk a weak and meek unoffensive way and not stand up for the word of GOD.

but getting enraged at the lost for being lost

 

Is it "getting enraged" or showing the true love that GOD commands us to show...tell them the truth, show them the truth of the gospel and reason with them without compromise.

I had been praying for Gene Simons (a Jew) of the rock band KISS to get saved and he also got saved. So prayer for the lost even if they are in the most wicked state as long as they are alive in this world god can still save them.

Righteous anger is ok BUT it should not be used when witnessing to the lost.  I've been praying for President Obama to get saved.  Wouldn't that be wonderful?  To see a 3rd generation Red Diaper Baby, a child of wrath, make repentance before God and put his faith in Jesus Christ would truly be a miracle; as every salvation is.

 

Mr. Rush, do you spend a lot of time on the jesusissavior website?

Is this righteous anger I hear from some or something else?  Self control is a virtue.  We should all pray that we might attain to a godly control of our anger. 

Prov 15:1 A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger. 

Prov 15:18  A wrathful man stirreth up strife: but he that is slow to anger appeaseth strife.

Prov 16:32 He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty; and he that ruleth his spirit than he that taketh a city.

 

Are we to put ourselves in the place of God?  Do we think vengeange for wrongs done to God is in our hands?  Do we think we can put ourselves in God's place?

Nah 1:3 The Lord is slow to anger, and great in power, and will not at all acquit the wicked: the Lord hath his way in the whirlwind and in the storm, and the clouds are the dust of his feet.

4 He rebuketh the sea, and maketh it dry, and drieth up all the rivers: Bashan languisheth, and Carmel, and the flower of Lebanon languisheth.

5 The mountains quake at him, and the hills melt, and the earth is burned at his presence, yea, the world, and all that dwell therein.

6 Who can stand before his indignation? and who can abide in the fierceness of his anger? his fury is poured out like fire, and the rocks are thrown down by him.

 

If it were possible for us to bring down the wrath of God upon another are we to put ourselves in the place of God and attempt to do so? :knuppel:

Does Jesus our exemplar instruct us to do so?

Is the Westboro church what we are to be . . . . filled with anger and hate?

God help us if that is us. :(

 

God bless,

Larry
