Discussion for Psalms 9

  • Mild Bill
    "Put them in fear, O LORD: that the nations may know themselves to be but men." But men and not gods, as was put before them in the garden. What glorious things will appear and happen when God tears away the lying veil from the eyes of the world. Fear/reverence for the person of God, without end, hallelujah. There is no saving this planet earth, which God will build anew, fit for eternity.

    Thank you Almighty God, for delivering me from attacks of the devil, and putting my enemies under my feet.
    Thank you for success in 2018, in Jesus name.

    mild Bill; Why do you always look for something to strain out of its intended meaning, and attack me? Every time I try to be friendly, you can't answer peaceably; and whatever I write you wrench out another meaning!
  • Janet Abreu
    Jesus I pray this day that I hope in you. And that my faith will be stronger in you. Please be my forever refuge and guide to rest in you for help and safety this day and forever more. In the name of Jesus I pray amen.
  • A disciple
    Eldy; God sent His servants to speak and to write for the express purpose of all men everywhere hearing and believing in Jesus Christ, and repenting of sin. He who created man in His own image and likeness knows what He made us capable of knowing and understanding, and He is not unrighteous to tell us things we can't understand, much less leave it up to men to guess what they mean!
