    Dear William, I am so sorry that your girlfriend has treated you this way and thus ended your relationship. My sense is that it is now dead since she so easily has found another man. My suggestion to you is to be prayerful and seek God for wisdom, healing as you grieve this loss, and wait patiently for what God wants to do, not what you want to do. I will pray for you, William, since I know how hard this is to go through.

    Dear Heavenly Father, how much William is hurting. We ask You in the name of Jesus to help him through this loss of the woman he loves, of the relationship that is ended, and the future that he thought he would have with here completely destroyed. I pray that You will comfort and lead William, keeping his heart stayed on You and give him the strength to really trust in You for what his future may hold. I know that You know when it would be best for You to bring the best and right woman into his life. This one he loved is not that woman, as far as I can tell since she mistreated him and the love they shared so terribly. Amen.

    Sarah,

    Welcome and it is wonderful that you are setting your mind, heart, and spirit to studying Scripture. I love the Psalms and Psalm one is my favorite. I have a poster with these words and a picture of a stream with little waterfalls as a background.

    I think that the more you read and re-read passages of Scripture your mind stores it away to be brought forward by the Holy spirit at times you need it most.

    It may be helpful to select out verses that speak to you and write them in a notebook so you can go back and re-read a verse and work on memorizing it. This is a way to meditate on the word. Another way that works for me is to take a select verse and try to make it into a melody to sing to yourself. This helps with recall.

    Chaff: Seed

    The Hardest part of this chapter is the meditating part. I feel too comfortable with just trying my best to do the right thing and leaning on my own understanding of what the right thing to is.

    Also, doing things my way. There is no prosperity doing it my way.

    Today is the first day i am studying your word. I choose Psalms because i want my heart to be a heart after God and give the same unconditional love that he gave me.

  • Alan clarin on Psalms 1
    this whole Chapter stated the blessedness of a person. It told the greatness of a person who delighted the Word of God and the remarkableness of a person whose law of God is constantly in his heart. Blessedness means a person who has been favored by the heavens.

    I agree that all lost people need the Help of God , and he can use us , but often they refuse to repent , or except truth then what ? I appreciate your love for the lost as Jesus came to save sinners , but few will receive him .

    Today the gospel has been perverted , many see not the need to live a holy life or follow Jesus .

    Yes Jesus died for sinners and laid down his life for them . Glad you get that well . He surely loves as no other man did by the power of God .

    I think I get it though, thanks!

    You missed the context .

    We are talking about the church not evangelism .

    Know you not that a little leaven leaven's the whole lump ?

    Cast out the evil and it shall be made whole .

    What fellowship has you with devils ?
  • Self Righteous - in Reply on Psalms 1
    Mark 2:14 - 17

    And when the scribes and Pharisees saw (Jesus) eat with publicans and sinners, they said unto his disciples, How is it that he eateth and drinketh with publicans and sinners?

    If you're a Holy Joe, and a self righteous hip, this bothers you ! to be around common people, or someone who is not converted whereby the purpose of a Christian is to plant seeds to a person who Is a sinner, seeds of truth to a Child of God, those believers who may be on the wrong track whereby they Can see that truth, and Gain that knowledge, and Be touched by The Almighty, it's what Christianity is all about, it's spreading the good word, the gospel, the good news, we musn't send them away or cast them out, who else is going to help them?
  • Ron on Psalms 1
    Psalm 1.5

    "Sinners shall not stand in the congregation of the righteous "

    We know they will not stand in the judgment.

    So here is the though , is your congregation able to keep the sinners out ? Or do they feel at home ?

    Yes repentance is welcome but not sinning , not even in Old Testament times .

    If your congregation is not working get out and be separate. Why go down with a sinking ship ?
  • Richard H Priday on Psalms 1
    Psalm 1 is only five verses long; but contains several very important themes. Namely; it is avoiding heeding to the council of the wicked in terms of taking to heart; the character; longevity and wisdom of the righteous and their eternal destinies; and the opposing state of the wicked.

    There are warnings for those who would esteem men and exalt those who the world does in Luke 16:15. The foolishness of God is greater than any of man's vain knowledge ( 1 Corinthians 1:25). We see this pattern among many of the Pharisees who believed but becuase they did not wish to lose their position in the Synagogue remained silent. (see John 12:42). We must heed warnings such as that of Jesus who stated that "he who confesses me before men I will confess before the Father in heaven in Matthew 10:32 and the denial of those who will deny Him in the very next verse. We see what the wicked counsel of the Jews led to with the crucifixion of Christ. At the very least we must heed to Revelation 3:11 which in my book is a very undervalued admonition about losing our reward and basically handing it over to another. We also must take care not to behave as the world does with gossip and chatter about every controversy.

    Verse 2 and 3 discuss the characteristics of the righteous. We are reminded here of Psalm 119 where the longest chapter in all scripture repeats over and over the love of the law of God which is only possible with a regenerated heart; else it ends up being religious self-righteousness. The result of such a character is perseverance of character; and blessings for this life and the one to come.

    Verse 4 and 5 discuss the wicked. It shows how they won't even stand at the judgment. That makes it clear why we shouldn't stand with them in the first place. They are compared to chaff (also seen in the N.T. and in Job 21:18; etc).

    The last verse shows how God keeps His sheep; and the wicked basically are on a default mode to destruction.

    The answer is YES he did,,, wherever God is that is Heaven,,, Ecclesiastes 11:6 Or ever the spinal cord be loosed, or the skull be broken, or failure of the heart, or the wheel broken at the cistern.7 Then shall the body which is made of dust return to the

    earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.
  • Judging__as a Believer - in Reply on Psalms 1
    It's not given to us to judge anyones behaviors as to if they go to heaven or hell. That's Gods job. There are 2 future judgments awaiting everyone: the Bema Seat Judgment (rewards are given according to believers Deeds)

    the Great White Throne Judgment (which God will be Judge). Is for unsaved mankind. Have NOT asked for Salvation from sins.

    Since we are not God, we are NOT to judge. Lots of scripture on that. Solomon had 900 wives, Mary Magdalene was a prostitute; later a disciple of Jesus. SAUL/Paul executed Christians for Rome. And more.

    We will all give an account of our deeds and judging. It's better to walk in forgiveness. It's not good to single out one scripture to justify judging. It's still judging.

    Ask God to forgive you.

    I do it sometimes! Especially with our current Government. I have to repent. We all do.

  • Valuable Principals in Book of Job and Deuteronomy 11_19 - in Reply on Psalms 1
    She tells him to renounce God and die. After that we don't hear anymore about her. At the end of the story, God returns everything Job lost X ten. He had new wives and many children from them. No mention of Jobs 1st wife.

    We have to follow what the Scriptures say on this matter.

    The moral of this story: Satan stalks us to see what we do, what of our weaknesses, doubts, are evident and visual.

    He tries to destroy us. Wreck our faith in Jesus as our Savior. I get persecuted regularly. I just step over the mess and Follow Jesus, as He said in the New Testament: we will have trials. If our FAITH does not grow and stretch bigger, we may suffer Satans attacks. He's in charge of disasters, loss, sickness and suffering NOW.

    To cling to Jesus's death on the Cross, and His victorious resurrection (witnessed by hundreds of people) and the things He taught us: our faith will take us THROUGH our trials too.

    Satan takes and destroys__GOD RESTORES. Slowly read the Lords Prayer. "Deliver Us From EVIL".

    We must Be Wise as "serpents", and mild as Doves.

    Nowadays, people have been groomed to behave Reactionary; To Join in the violent protests. Jesus said we would experience troubles. We must turn to God and the Lords Prayer. Don't crumble under pressures. ASK God For your NEEDS.

    Tithing in pure Faith in God, will provide for your WANTS and needs. We send it out on waters of faith. After many days it returns to us in abundance. It could be a HEALING, a better job, better place to live, protection. Give thanks to God. (Not yourself)

    The Lords Prayer works. Pray it at meals so the children can absorb the knowledge in it. In Deuteronomy God says for parents to teach their children so they can be blessed and live. Amen!

    There's no place in Job stating she left but after telling Job to "curse God and die" she's never mentioned much/at all after that. Many believe she stayed with Job as it never mentions she left him. Granted, there was likely a terrible judgement upon her -- that doesn't go to say she left him.

  • PROPHECY - in Reply on Psalms 1
    Francesco:

    It's the LIVING WORD that teaches us by studying his written word: He wrote it; he will CAUSE you to understand, his word.

    You have not, because you ASK NOT, and when you ask, you ask amiss; things to be consumed by the flesh.

    To whom much is GIVEN ....The LIFE of Christ ....much more will be GIVEN .... the MIND (knowledge and wisdom) of Christ.

    Stand firm in what the SPIRIT teaches YOU.

    Psalms 82:6 I have SAID ( Isaiah 55:11) Ye are gods, the children of the most high.

    John 10:35 If he (the written word) called them gods, unto whom (unto Francesco) the (living) WORD (Christ in you) came, the scripture CANNOT be broken.

    God bless YOU, the body of CHRIST, and Christ is the body of GOD, OUR Father.
  • PROPHECY - in Reply on Psalms 1
    Amen, "Grae":

    Christ is the BODY of his Father's PRESENCE.

    We are the Body of Christ's PRESENCE.

    Isaiah 63:9 ....and the angel of HIS PRESENCE SAVED THEM ........

    Ephesians 4:4 ....ONE Spirit (the only life)......One Body (that hold's that Life) ......

    Ephesians 4:6 .....ONE God .....and Father of ALL ...and above ALL ....and through ALL ....and IN YOU ALL ....

    God Bless YOU, his body.
  • Grae - in Reply on Psalms 1
    1st Timothy Ch 3 V 16 and plenty of others indicate that God manifested Himself in Christ , this to me is not talking about Jesus physical form but God's Holy Spirit in Christ . If u have seen me u have seen the Father , the Jews didn't recognise that God was in Christ , if they couldn't recognise that God was in Christ then they weren't going to show Jesus in his body of flesh any kindness . They were to busy criticizing the human in front of them to recognise the Spirit in him . They couldn't c the Truth , they were walking by sight not in faith , looking at the physical and completely ignoring the Spirit of Truth . God was manifesting Himself in Christ physical body but the Jews couldn't c beyond the physical body of Christ . This ties in with what that elderly brother told me about the meaning of I Am . He had a good knowledge of Hebrew , and of the Truth . May he rest in peace .
