Discussion for Psalms 1

  • Vanessa on Psalms 1:5
    We do not sit in council of evildoers, we meditate on the word of God day and night,, we are held to the same account of those who do not follow the word of God and do what is pleasing to oneself , and then call ourselves righteous, seeking power and greed, shouting hatred, killing unborn babies, calling what is good evil, an what is evil good, allowing pride sinners parade in the streets and we stand with it, while churches are being told to be silent, we are like the wheat being tossed to and fro, not I, I can not even cast a vote for those that hold those values, I am grateful for the price Yeshua paid for me, a sinner saved by grace, a servant to the Lord till he calls me home, he is my Rock, my Refuge, my Fortress, under his wing I shall abide. He loved me long before I knew his love, he sent his beloved son to take my penalty God Bless you all and may peace be with you all
  • Darlene on Psalms 1:5
    If you marry, then divorce and then get back together does God look at this as still married
  • Peter Nyambu - in Reply on Psalms 1:5
    According to the Word of God, God hates divorce hence at some point you may remarry after you have resolved your differences and forgive each other. To answer your question yes God recognises that union.
  • CHARLES JORDAN - in Reply on Psalms 1:5
    The answer is always best from God's Law and Matthew 5 verse 32 states....


    "But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication,causeth her to commit adultery:and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced shall commit adultery."


    And there it is.

    In the cold light of dawn.

    FORNICATION is the only legitimate case for divorce, before God.

    Psalm 35, 83 & 109

    And every time you wake up from a dream cancel it and ask the fire of God consume them to ashes in Jesus Name.
  • Tim Legarie - in Reply on Psalms 1:5
    Acts, physical acts,bend your knee's and pray.Ask God through Jesus and the Holy Spirit to guide you.Fearing God is the of start of wisdom.People do not carry the keys to life and heaven.Have faith in the good book,so much knowledge, write down what may help you in your situation, or to help someone else in there journey.Be thankfull in all things, God could be trying to teach you, listen to him.
  • Mary Wilson on Psalms 1:5
    In Psalms 1:5 does this mean that people who are not saved will not stand before Jesus on judgement day? I never thought about this,I guess why would they,after all they will be in hell or on the way to hell.
  • Mishael - in Reply on Psalms 1:5
    Jesus oversees the Bema Seat judgement of born again believers: with rewards, loss of rewards, or Crowns.

    God oversees the Great White Throne Judgement.
  • Mishael on the Judgment Seat of Christ - in Reply on Psalms 1:5
    2 Corinthians 5:10, this is the Bema Seat judgment of Christ, for believers who accepted Jesus as Savior and Lord. It's like a review of your life as a Christian on Earth.

    It is to receive rewards or to lose rewards.

    "For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad."

    There will be crowns given for various things. Which I think I read that we will place the crowns at the feet of Jesus.

    It's a solemn occasion, but also a happy event. You're not going to lose your salvation.

    What we learn from the New Testament is HOW to follow Jesus and become a disciple.

    How did we respond to his teaching? when I was hungry; you fed me. When I was naked, you clothed me. When I was sick, you visited me, etc. There's all kinds of ministries we can join or support with our giving, or time. Be generous and do not begrudge having to do it. You do it as unto Jesus, and no others. It is not for personal glory. It's about the blessings of obedience.

    I think in 1 Corinthians 12, we see that we can ask the Holy Spirit for gifts or administrations, for the purpose of relieving suffering and lack in believers and the unsaved. That perhaps by your love and mercy, the unsaved will come to Jesus through your ministry to them. It is so simple to ask them if you can lead them in a prayer of repentance and to receive Jesus as their Savior too. The soul winners Crown.

    A year ago I set myself down to really study all that Jesus said; how he related to all people; the religious; the demonic; the public in general. We have to slow down from speed reading, to actually process how Jesus was ministering and teaching His Disciples. Jesus is the Son of Man: all God and all man in one body. He set aside his power as Gods Son, to be amongst humankind. How do you respond to that? We're not saved to just occupy a pew on Sunday. Search ourselves...
