Wesley's Notes for Psalms 29:10


29:10 The flood - The most violent waters, which sometimes fall from the clouds upon the earth. These are fitly mentioned, as being many times the companions of great thunders. And this may be alleged as another reason, why God's people praised him in his temple, because as he sends terrible tempests and thunders, so he also restrains and over - rules them. Sitteth - He doth sit, and will sit as king for ever, sending such tempests when it pleaseth him.

    I love all of the Psalms. When i read them i feel closer to my Lord God Almighty ! 💝🐦💝

    Servant,God has written that his "word" is a two-edged sword,not his voice.Repent involves more than God's existence, but also the sinner's condition before God.God in his mercy withholds immediate judgement of sin.Only God knows who is reprobate.The Holy Spirit is in this world,therefore, full of evil, is extreme.While we see many without fruit of God, we are often blind to God working in them.
  • Servant of God
    The voice of the Lord is a two edged sword for praise and for correction. God will forget the sinner who will not hear instruction and who will not repent. To repent is to reverse direction, to acknowledge that God exists, that he is merciful and severe. What would God want with the reprobate in this world. That one is of no use to anyone. This world is full of mediocrity and outright evil!!!
  • Mild Bill
    Such a great voice, and until God himself speaks to a persons heart, quickens them by the Holy Spirit, makes them alive unto him, they remain dead in trespasses and sin, and so never hear him."There is none righteous, no, not one:There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God.Rom.3:10

    I thank the Almighty God, for giving us his Word. This is the greatest gift to our world, because i have had opportunities to use his word

    Blessed be the name of Jesus!
    The King of Kings and Lord of the Lord!
    He is the "Way Maker"!
    Blessed the Lord, all my soul, and all that is within me, bless His Holy, Holy Name!
    For He has done great things,
    Bless His Holy, Holy Name!!!
    I remember when I was baptized with the Holy Spirit, and how much I have grown in faith, strength and understanding, and I know that God is always with us!!
