    Psalms 82:6 is taken out of content. Psalms 82:6 " I have said, Ye are gods and all of you are the children of the most High." God is saiding you belong to me,and all of you are the children of the most High. You are children of the most High God is referring to Himslef. God is our creator ,He created everything and there is only one God. Other gods that GOD speak of are false gods.

    This verse is regarding fallen Angels! It's time for the truth. Horrible shame that God's people have been so blinded and not taught the truth. Just horrible! God's people perish for lack of knowledge. Now, the truth is being revealed! Fallen Angels!

    I think "gods" was referring to those in positions of authority, in particular, judges. These judges were supposed to protect the poor and good via Romans 13 and punish evil but they were letting evil flourish while ignoring the poor.

    there's only one god - but the term 'god' sounds like it's being used facetiously in regards to the powerful who take themselves too seriously, yet at the same time doing nothing with their power to help the needy. (Kim Jong Un, i'm looking at you). The other Kim's are dead, incidently. The super rich/powerful's biggest fear is losing their riches/power( hence their perceived godhood)
  • Magnus
    This psalm was quoted by Jesus in John 10:34 specifically indicating that reborn Christians, being the sons of God are gods and it comes with the responsibilities listed in verse 3 and 4.
    It warns us not to remain in darkness but to open our eyes to what our new purpose is and that as Christians we should be world changers by the love and power of our Most High Father and God.
