Discussion for Psalms 74:12

  • Rev. Autrey for verse 12
    Psalm 74, verse 12 reads, 'But you, O God, are my King from of old. You bring salvation upon the earth. ' But wait, didn 't Jesus say to Pilate that he was King? And doesn 't the Book of Revelation call Jesus the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords? This means that Jesus is the God and King this verse speaks of. That is why the wise men came to Bethlehem saying 'Where is the newborn King of the Jews. ' Folks, we can 't have it any other way. Jesus is our God and King. Those who say this is not so are only fooling themselves. They have been deceived by Satan so they can 't receive the salvation Jesus offers. Our job as followers of Jesus, is to first accept his saalvation ourselves, and then, to tell others about it. Yes, the Psalms are right in saying that Jesus is our God fron ages past, and he will be our God fron ages to come! Here is Satan 's deception. We say we love Jesus. But in the same breath we say that he is not the same God the Psalms speak of. We say he is a lesser figure who emanates from God, or comes from God, but is not God himself. But in doing this we deny the very God who came to save us. What a tragedy! This is just as bad as what the Jews of Jesus ' time did when they had him put to death for blasphemy, or for calling himself God. Wake up saints! May God open our eyes to Accept Jesus as our God!
