Discussion for Psalms 79

  • A disciple
    "..That we may be delivered from wicked and unreasonable men; for not all men have faith." 2 Thessalonians 3:2 By the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled! In understanding Be Men! But in malice Be Children! The Lord Jesus agonized and sweat great drops of blood in anticipation of what was coming upon Him, and endured!

  • Ps Daniel for verse 10
    Lord let the be a prove that we are the sons of the Almighty God,the God of Abraham,isaac and Jacob here in THE COMMUINTY OF AHOADA IN PORT HARCOURT ,NIGERIA
  • Rev. Autrey
    (Verses 8-9) "Oh,do not hold us guilty for our former sins! Let your tenderhearted mercies quickly meet our needs, for we are brought low to the dust. Help us, O God of our salvation! Help us for the honor of your name. Oh, save us and forgive our sins for the sake of your name"

    Didn't Jesus say this in Luke 24:44-48: "When I was with you before, I told you that everything written about me by ... the Psalms must all come true. ... Yes, it was written long ago that the Christ must suffer and die and rise again from the dead on the third day. With my authority, take this message of repentance to all the nations, beginning in Jerusalem: 'There is forgiveness of sins for all who turn to me."

    The "me" here has to be the God referred to in Psalm 79 for there can be only one Savior.

    Too. it is written that Jesus (Christ) would be in the grave three days and three nights in the book of Jonah. Jonah 1-17 says, "Now the Lord had arranged a great fish to swollow Jonah. And Jonah was inside the fish for three days and three nights." Jonah was a type for Christ. His story shows us how Jesus would give his life for our sins, just as Jonah gave his life for his sin (Jonah said that he called to God from the world of the dead.). This is what Jesus was talking about.

    The bottom line is, Jesus and the God the Psalms talk about are the same!

    God help us to understand!
