Discussion for Psalms 35:8

  • John Sheridan for verse 8
    Just because one knows the word of God doesn't mean they will make heaven their home. Only those who are written in the Lambs book of life. Those who know and do the will of the Father. Do you not know the devil knows the word of God probably better than any one of us, and he still is going to hell. He is a father of all lies and the truth is not in him. Are you written in the book of the lamb, if not turn to God repent of your sin then you will be able to see clear on how to proclaim Gods word. otherwise it is to no avail what you tell others about God. We can only do Gods will by obedience.
  • John Sheridan for verse 8
    Why is it that so many so called religions of the world change the word of God, into the lie of the world. bringing swift destruction upon their own head. The spirit of that came down and talked with their leader, leader of what , their false religion. The lies the devil portrays to lead the many to destruction, wake up read the word of God for yourselves. Why do you read any other thing other than the bible, do you not know the bible is the word of God, Not what someone has heard from a spirit, God says test all things and if that spirit preaches any other word other than what Gods word says, let him be accursed. And come out from among them. Lest the same curse that befalls them will also come upon you. Do you have ears to hear, or are you dull of hearing you cannot hear. What will it take for people to wake total destruction of family and friends. Maybe even ones self, then it will be to late. their will no longer be any time to repent. For the time of repentance must come before one dies in their sin. Then be found without a Lord and Savior. Who is the only one who can save you from your sin. And be sent to that place of weeping and internal torment for ever and ever Amen
