Discussion for Psalms 44:22

  • Timothy Wayne George for verse 22
    Yea, for thy sake are we Killed all day; we are counted as sheep for the slaughter. The Apostle Paul quoted this verse in Romans 8 and we too as Israel of God, have the same promise that nothing can separate us from the love of God; neither death, nor persecution, nor distress; for we are more than victorious through Jesus Christ our Lord. So we will praise God always, because He is our strength for ever. Jesus said to fear not them that can kill the body only, but to fear Him who after the body is killed, can cast into hell. Jesus promises those who are faithful unto death, the crown of life. So if we suffer with Him, we shall also reign with Him in His kingdom.
