Discussion for Psalms 27

  • Carleton on Psalms 27:2
    So far our California family remains packed up with the essentials ready to flee to our brethren in the farm grounds by the river. Many above us in this town on both sides of where we live have left their homes for shelters or motels, friends and families. Many animals likely have been left behind. Our immediate neighbor is part of the animal sheltering community team. This is a good work. Fires hardly our first round, burn dross and can become a blessing on what is true and long lasting. I am happy to be here for now.

    Keep the Faith in peace and love and likely some suffering to make us even more like in Him.

    Love Carleton

    Please read 1 Cor. 2:14 and John 8:43-45. Both readings will explain why you have such a difficult time understanding our testimony, which is of God (Cor. 2:1).

    Regarding our revelations, which are from God also, we invite you to read: Daniel 12:4,9; Amos 3:7; Matthew 16:17; Luke 2:26; Romans 16:25; 1 Cor. 2:10; Galatians 1:12,16; Ephesians 3:3,5; Revelation 1:1.

    Google the title of the book and you will find us.

    In His Service.

    Hello Mwamini!

    If you have your own(or shared) laptop or phone you can download the Bible for free! Simply scroll down this page and click on "KJV Store."

    There you will be able to download The KJV!

    If there were a way on this site to get your address I would send you a Bible. Unfortunately posting that information here, I believe, is against standard conduct.

    His Truth shall be your shield and buckler!

    God Bless and I pray for you to receive a Bible into your hands.

  • Donald Honeyghan on Psalms 27:2
    This verse has Messianic significance. It was literally fulfilled at the arrest of Christ in the garden of Gethsemane. When He spoke those powerful words, "I Am He [as in; the eternal God; the I AM]," his armed detainers backed away and fell to the ground (see John's Gospel 18:1-6.
