Discussion for Psalms 101

  • A disciple
    Marshal (cont.); Just let me add this: Yes Israel is and for ever will be Jesus' natural family according to the flesh; and yes, He will have His day with them, when every one of them will come before His feet to worship Him as their Lord and Saviour. But for now He hides His face from them because of their defiant unbelief and hostility toward Him and the Glad Tidings. Pray for them to be saved!
  • A disciple
    Dear Marshal Allbritton; I know you meant well with your statement, and probably more or less repeating something you heard; but really, Israel is in dreadful spiritual condition! The Country is a mix of complete ungodliness and perversion, as much as any other Western Nation; and fanatic antichrist ideologies; and a trace remnant of Christians still persecuted.
  • Marshal Allbritton
    It is amazing how Israel is blessed so much by God. It is note worthy to point out that their country, by and large, still upholds God's ways and in tern receives God's blessings.
  • Modupe
    The passage of these psalms make us understand that no liars will enter into the kingdom of God.
  • TR Ahlstrom
    This is a most compact and remarkable expression of David's heart and mind. Indeed, in it is the secret of both his private and public greatness. First, he set's his own heart right and keeps his focus only and always on truth, beauty and goodness. Then, in governing God's people he becomes the dread of every evil man and the shield of all who do good. Oh that we had such a leader today. Please, LORD, give us such a President. Better still, come quickly LORD Jesus.

    God is of truth abd He told us He does not like lies.He is telling us to avoid these persons, they slanderous. God does not want us to fall prey of such as He wants us Christians to be different , as He said we are a peculiar people, called, set apart, so we should be that light in the darkness, light on the candle stick not hidden but shineth the brightest. We should be the salt of the earth and not loose our flavor. God desires of us that no wickedness shall befall us if we dwell in His Truth and do His will.THANK YOU JESUS
