Discussion for Psalms 82

    CLEARLY we must take scripture at its word,not what your pasture tells you it says. Not what your dad and uncle think it says.Scripture defines Scripture, hence try reading this passage as to people it was written to. It was written to ISRAELITE S OF THE 12 TRIBES during the time before the CHRIST would come. NOT written to 21 century people, yes it is written for our benefit and our admiration. It was not written to you meanwhile it was written for you. READ THIS IN A HEBREW TRANSLATION next to your favorite version of scripture. DO A HEBREW WORD STUDY AND YOU WILL SEE THIS IN NEW LIGHT! THE MOST HIGH ( CREATED other supernatural beings like him) is sitting on his throne with heavenly council around him. THE OLD TESTAMENT CLEARLY SAYS prior in scripture like GEN 6.1-5 THAT SONS OF GOD were supernatural beings ( SPIRITS LIKE GOD) but they were gods because the FATHER HAD SONS before humans and a family of beings he created before humans....look up the hebrew word for gods ( elohim) the same translation for a god. Ancient men and woman thought different then you and me . JEWS new thier were other gods they saw them worshiped all around them on every border. THIERS ONE CREATOR GOD, who created everything, even other gods.JESUS IS THAT

  • Derek michael sims on Psalms 82:6
    The word says that in all things he will have the preeminence. Meaning Christ will lead, demonstrate, experience, how we as god 's children are to govern ourselves in this world. He commands us to do nothing he has not already done. He commands us to be he not the most humble of all? God the king comes down to be born in the form of one of his creations! and allows himself to be murdered for our sakes. Consider this and understand. There can be no greater act of humility, since the greatest one of all put aside his glory for the sake of all. Remember whosoever humblest himself shall be exalted. And for this reason all power has been given into his hands. Therefore all who will come after him must suffer. To inherit the promise to reign with him. I write unto you little children because you have known the father. I write unto you fathers because you have known him who is from the beginning. I 've written unto you young men because you have overcome the wicked one. Do not love this world. God 's ways are opposite of what the world teaches . Listen not to the tv preachers who are the wolves disguised as sheep. They have made themselves preachers. But in god 's word time after time you see that it is god himself who chooses his prophets. And those chosen vessels speak only the words of god.

  • Andrew on Psalms 82:6
    "gods ", "children of God ", these are angels, more likely evil, fallen angels, manifested as "gods " in idolatry.
  • Finn Oniciuc on Psalms 82:6
    It means that we are all creators made in the likeness of God. So when we believe with all our intention, we manifest into our physical reality, that which we believe to be already part of our present reality .
  • Nancy P. on Psalms 82:6
    This changes everything! Praise be to God!
  • James M R on Psalms 82:6
    I agree with Kuriakose 's comment that it is meant literally as a FUTURE reality. It is stated very clearly by Jesus himself, it 's clearly not meant to be just about judges or magistrates. It means potentially anyone in the world who truly loves God by receiving his word.
  • Antonio Gaddis on Psalms 82:6
    John 17 23 I in you in me my spirit the almighty God spirit are one with me... The Almighty even breathed the breath of life in me the Almighty God very being inside of me how could I not be a god
