    How Spirit-filled was the psalmist, King David, to have penned this magnificent Psalm, which is actually God's resume a.k.a. his curriculum vitae , that continues to speak to believers' hearts hundreds of centuries later. No wonder he King David was a man after God's own heart . Everything that God is has done can do will do is stated clearly and lovingly in this beautiful song. All glory and honor to my Almighty Father!!!!

    In the begining was the WORD.
    THE WORD was with GOD.
    And GOD is the WORD.
    THE WORD WAS MANIFESTED INTO FLESH AND BORN OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.
    SON OF GOD . SON OF MAN
    TO BE BORN.OF THE HOLY SPIRIT,TO WALK THE EARTH TO BRING THE GOOD NEWS TO THE POOR.
    MINISTERED THE WORD OF GOD FOR 3 YEARS.
    DIED AND ROSE AGAIN ON THE THIRD DAY TO BE TAKEN UP INTO THE HEAVENLY PLACE, AND TO SIT NEXT TO GOD...AMEN
