  • St Ephraim De Penafrancia on Psalms 25
    Also, Psalms 25 is pleading to God to save us from the reproach of people. In this present world that we live in, quite a number of people patiently wait for our downfall especially as Christians so that they could mock us and speak ill of the God that we serve. King David like many of us to have these people waiting for him to be put to shame, Psalms 25 is written to plead to God to rescue him from the plans of his adversaries. So also us who call on the name of God day and night and we that have refused to compromise our faith, the Psalms 25 should be our anthem day and night to always remind God to remember his promises concerning those who believe in him.

    What is Grace? How does it act?
  • Chris - in Reply on Psalms 25:15
    The short answer to the meaning of God's Grace is, 'God's unmerited favour or kindness shown to us'. That is, God has chosen to show us His Love & Kindness even when we were the 'last people on Earth' to deserve it. Actually, theologically, I like to look at it this way: God is a Merciful God (i.e. His very being of Love, Holiness, Justice, etc. also has Mercy as a very important integral part of the Being of God). So when God demonstrates His Mercy (that part of His Character) & sheds it upon us an undeserving people, we receive it as His Grace in our lives. I realize that often the words 'Mercy & Grace' are used by Christians interchangeably, but to help my understanding & when sharing God's Word, I like to show a differentiation between the two, though both are certainly vitally connected.

    And God's Mercy, shown to mankind by His Grace, has always been the enjoyment & security of all those who are called by Him to receive it. To Israel, they were selected as God's chosen, for no other reason than to pour out His Love upon them as He had promised to their fathers, & to make them a special (holy) people (see Deuteronomy 7:6-9). And to us today, to as many as have been called to salvation & eternal life, God has persisted in that Love for all of us, by sending us His Son to be our Substitute to receive His punishment for our sins. There was no other way that God could justify in keeping the human race going on in sin. Just as He destroyed all but few in the Great Flood, so His Mind was that He would do it again for the volume of sins that were before Him. But at the appointed time to hold back that Wrath (Romans 5:6), He sent Jesus to pay sin's price on our behalf & to avert (to change direction) His Anger against us (1 John 2:2, 4:10). So His Anger was then placed upon Jesus (as our sin-bearer) that those who put their trust in Him can be declared 'not guilty'. Such was the load that Jesus bore for us: our sin & God's Anger.

    Such is God's Grace given to us.

    Aye Chris, well said.
  • Dahg Melek - in Reply on Psalms 25:15
    Concerning Israel, It is made evident that they were created by El Shaddai for the purpose of revealing Him to us who were/are not a part of that particular creation. I beg to differ with you when you say He chose them to pour out His love on them. His choosing of them was of a much higher calling than that. He "put His name in them," meaning He made them His family among the ungodly/mankind. They have basked in His favor and chafed in His anger. They have suffered at His hand that we might know His statutes and judgements, and they have rejoiced in His mercies that we might know the loving kindness of a Heavenly Father who loves His children. We are saved by the spirit of adoption, says Paul, and being of the wild olive tree are grafted into the tame olive tree, if so that we accept the redemption that came to them through the sacrifice of Christ and the resurrection that is theirs by their return to the Land of Inheritance and the acknowledging of their Creator.
  • Dahg Melek - in Reply on Psalms 25:15
    When I was a teenager I received a citation for driving without a license. Upon appearing before the judge I had not yet obtained a license. The judge gave me ten days 'grace' to obtain my license. God's 'Grace' is a specific period of time to make right that which has been wrong. It is not an indefinite, never ceasing thing in which we can continue to do what we have always done and there be no judgement. His Mercy is the giving of a lighter sentence/punishment than deserved and His Judgements, according as we deserve, are without Grace or Mercy and are everlasting. Therefore, Noach found Grace and Mercy in the eyes of the Lord while the rest had only Judgement.
  • Mild Bill - in Reply on Psalms 25:15
    Dahg Melek, "God's 'Grace' is a specific period of time to make right that which has been wrong. It is not an indefinite, never ceasing thing in which we can continue to do what we have always done and there be no judgement." Your specific time frame is relative to our human station and responsibility. That is a narrow and limited definition of grace, that does not encompass the grace of God. To limit God's grace, is to limit God, which never or ever is possible. Only creation is limited to time specific. To contrast grace to judgement, you must first minimize both in your thinking, hence, the narrow and limited view you present. Both grace and judgement are everpresent qualities of God.

    I love this chapter of psalm and I also the kjv bible.
  • Fred Scanlan on Psalms 25
    It is a rule with miracles, as well miracles of the Spirit as miracles of the body, that God never does what others can do. As long as there is strength left in the natural laws God does not go beyond them; but our extremity is God's opportunity. Spurgeon answers many questions concerning the times of healing ,spiritual, physical,during the time our Lord Jesus was on earth! Today we have doctors, and priests. It would be nice if we used them as we should! Perhaps lives could be better and more productive? These things are so simple. Satan, will have His day only for awhile! God can work through us if we allow Him ! It would be nice if the leaders of the free world new something about this!
  • Pat Tozi on Psalms 25
    Do you hear the trumpets yet? Soon the sky will open up as a scroll to see Jesus with the other angels on horseback coming down thru the clouds to fight for us. This evil world will meet the maker of His children. As a rush of wind asending high above. The Heavens will shine so strong-- it will move mountains as the quakes shiver as our evil world will suddenly be destroyed. The power of His Light will finally show us because we kept the Faith we have won the victory!!!
  • Patty Tozi on Psalms 25
    Who is God in these times When much confusion is swearing around us?. Day to day we go in a haze of not knowing what to expect next. He is our Savior whom we must all fear. He is our Life after our death. His Son is our Savior in the new Heavens that will surround His followers. So what do we do when all hell comes upon us before His coming. Faith..all keep the faith..Do not straddle the fence no matter what happens. Keep strong in His Loving Light. Go the way Jesus did for others when He walked this Earth long ago. Look at all His Father's creations. Stand still and listen. He will softly say.....He Loves You!!!

    Verse 14-We can have a close relationship with Jehovah God if we put forth the effort and we are obedient to Him.
  • Marilyn T on Psalms 25
    This Psalm was laid on my heart. It is so comforting to know that God does not " Remember " our sins once

    we are forgiven. The one who remembers our past sins and transgressions is Satan. We are not his children

    so what God says is what count. We do not have to ask for forgiveness for the same sin over and over, unless

    we are committing that Sin again. We must remember that God will not strive with us and He is not to be

    played with. I love God because I am his child , forgiven and my name is written in the Book of Life.
  • Sunday Alaka Ogechi on Psalms 25:2
    David asks for help so that he will not be ashamed. Here, "ashamed" means being hurt and feeling pain. It is more than feeling sorry. David does not want his enemies to triumph over him. When you triumph you say how great and good you are and how weak your enemies are. David says that the people that say what is not true should be ashamed. He means his enemies. They are also the enemies of God.

    Revelation 8 re: wormwood,

    Timothys lying signs and wonders.

    Plus, the Holy Spirit Is the one who said: it's not global warming.

    I googled wormwood and nasa has a story on "supposed wormwood star". I didn't say it: nasa did. They, not Me.

    I follow many scientists reports and stories.

    Every day. NOT fake newspapers.

    God will confirm his own word ok?

    Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God's elect? It is God that justifieth. Romans 8

    "For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us". That includes "so called" global warming, asteroid impact, volcanos, earthquakes, solar flares or any other "supposed judgement of God".

    There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love. 1John 4:18

    Mishael, be warned!

    GLOBAL WARMING IS COMING:

    2 Peter Chapter 3:10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be BURNED UP.

    11 [Seeing] then [that] all these things shall be dissolved, what manner [of persons] ought ye to be in [all] holy conversation and godliness,

    12 Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on FIRE shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?

    13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.

    My adult children are pro homosexuality. The way I read the bible as quoted in Lev. A man should not lay with a man nor a women with a women. That to me makes it pretty clear.

    I was also looking for the quote that says that a marriage should be between a man and women, but with these "New revised" versions of the Bible that are made more socially acceptable they have taken all of the meat and potatoes out.

    Can someone help me.
  • Mishael - in Reply on Psalms 25
    1 Corinthians 7 is the marriage chapter.

    There is no verse about gay marriage. It's simply an abomination.

    People who persist In that lifestyle are assuredly going with satan....who hates all human beings. Wants to steal, kill and destroy them. They're sorta like evangelists for the evil side. Everyone they convert is headed for the lake of fire. But first they'll probably be beheaded by Antichrist. No blindfolds.

    Mamma T You are on the right track about sodomy. The King James Bible is clear, new Bibles are not.

    Modern media is pro everything God hates and calls abomination. Find out who owns the media is a worthy step toward identifying the antichrists.

    Zondervan is the exclusive printer of the NIV Bible.

    Zondervan is the largest printer of Bibles in the English speaking world.

    They are owned by Harper Collins which prints gay porn and the Satanic Bible for the church of satan.

    Their parent company is the News Corp we know as Fox TV.

    Bad tree = bad fruit.

    They are changing the word definitions. Gay used to mean happy, now it is a sodomite.

    A nation that tolerates things the Lord calls abomination brings curses upon the nation.

    Sound familiar?

    Bible Verses About Homosexuality

    Genesis 19:1-11

    That evening the two angels came to the entrance of the city of Sodom. Lot was sitting there, and when he

    saw them, he stood up to meet them. Then he welcomed them and bowed with his face to the ground.

    "My lords," he said, "come to my home to wash your feet, and be my guests for the night. You may then

    get up early in the morning and be on your way again." "Oh no," they replied. "We'll just spend the night

    out here in the city square." But Lot insisted, so at last they went home with him. Lot prepared a feast for

    them, complete with fresh bread made without yeast, and they ate. But before they retired for the night, all

    the men of Sodom, young and old, came from all over the city and surrounded the house. They shouted to

    Lot, "Where are the men who came to spend the night with you? Bring them out to us so we can have sex

    with them!"

    So Lot stepped outside to talk to them, shutting the door behind him. "Please, my brothers," he begged,

    "don't do such a wicked thing. Look, I have two virgin daughters. Let me bring them out to you, and you

    can do with them as you wish. But please, leave these men alone, for they are my guests and are under my

    protection."

    "Stand back!" they shouted. "This fellow came to town as an outsider, and now he's acting like our judge!

    We'll treat you far worse than those other men!" And they lunged toward Lot to break down the door. But

    the two angels reached out, pulled Lot into the house, and bolted the door. Then they blinded all the men,

    young and old, who were at the door of the house, so they gave up trying to get inside.

    Leviticus 18:22

    "Do not practice homosexuality, having sex with another man as with a woman. It is a detestable sin."

    (NLT)

    Leviticus 20:13

    committed a detestable act. They must both be put to death, for they are guilty of a capital offense."

    These few verses let's us know if we truly love and personally, know the Lord Jesus as Savior or if not, we are found liars: John 14:15 "If ye love me, keep my commandments." 1 John 2:3 And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments. 4 He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. 5 But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him.

  • Adam - in Reply on Psalms 25
    Hello, usually someone with an addiction puts that first in their life above other things, above God. If you put something above God that is called idolatry. Also, our bodies are holy temples loaned to us by God and are made in his image. So, there's more than one angle that shows addictions are bad and sinful. God bless...

    GLOWING UP AS a kid I NEVER KNEW what God meant to me. I'm grow now and I can't go another day without prayer. Because what God have done for me, I have to praise him. Give God the praise and honor that he so rightly deserves. Fear God, for what he will not do for you if you done honor him. Fear God for his goodness, for his mercy and his grace. Come to God in prayer, or in song. Tell everyone how good he is. He let us all see another day. And I realize that everything I do without going to prayer first. If I DIDN'T believe in my Lord and savior, I most likely will not be here today. The Lord is my rock. My high tower. I can talk to the Lord at any time. Hallelujah, glory to God.

  • Sunday Levinus Alaka on Psalms 25:5
    Lead me in thy truth - In the way which thou regardest as truth, or which thou seest to be true. Truth is eternal and unchanging. What God sees and regards as truth is true, because he sees things as they are; and when we have the divine estimate of anything, we understand what the thing is. It is not that he makes it to be true, but that he sees it to be true. Such is the perfection of His nature that we have the utmost assurance that what God regards as truth is truth; what He proclaims to be right is right. It is then His truth, as He adopts it for the rule of His own conduct, and makes it known to His creatures to guide them.

    And teach me - Since this would be understood by the psalmist, it would be a prayer that God would teach him by His law as then made known; by His Spirit in the heart; by the dispensations of His providence. As applicable to us, it is a prayer that He would instruct us by all the truths then made known, and all that have since been revealed; by His Spirit in its influences on our hearts; by the events which are occurring around us; by the "accumulated" truth of ages; the knowledge which by all the methods He employs He has imparted to people for their guidance and direction.

    For thou art the God of my salvation - The word "salvation" is not to be understood here in the sense in which it is now commonly used, as denoting deliverance from sin and future ruin, but in the more general sense of "deliverance" - deliverance from danger and death. The phrase is synonymous with "preservation," and the idea is that the psalmist regarded God as his preserver; or that he owed his protection and safety in the time of danger to Him alone.

    On thee do I wait - That is, I rely on Thee; or, I am dependent on Thee. He had no other source of reliance or dependence.

    All the day - Continually, always. He was really dependent upon Him at all times, and he felt that dependence. It is always true that we are dependent upon God for everything.
