Wesley's Notes for Psalms 50:3


50:3 Our God - The prophet speaks this in the persons of the worshippers of God. Though he be our God, yet he will come to execute judgment upon us. Cease - Or delay to sit in judgment. Tempestuous - This is a farther description of that terrible majesty, wherewith God would clothe himself when he came to his tribunal.

    ST JOHN 3:17 For God send not his son into the world to condemn the world:but that the world through him might be saved.

    Sissy; you were right with your first reaction to this thought. Your Pastor wasn't exactly teaching it right! We are NOT automatically forgiven everything because we're now "saved." How is that fair for those who don't know the Lord, if they would be judged more harshly than us who do? Read the Lord's messages to the Churches in Revelation 2-3; if those that sin don't repent they will perish!
  • Sissy
    Hi I want to tell you that God is not displeased with you if you are saved. All of your sins past, present and future are forgiven. I had a hard time accepting that when my pastor first started preaching on grace. None of your sins are imputed to you anymore. We should all allow the Holy Spirit to renew our minds, so that our actions will follow. But we are already the righteous.

    When I read this psalms it have me reflexing back to yesterday with eclipse from yesterday. God made this happen two times before yesterday the first time when Jesus was crucified and said Father into thy hand his spirit went with God his Father. The second time was in June 1918. We must understand that Jehovah God is not pleased with us and we must repent for our sins, and thanking for loving us
