Psalms Chapter 37 Discussion



 
  • Richard H Priday on Psalms 37
    Psalm 37 seems to be a general overview of many of the preceding Psalms; although once again it should be emphasized that the chronology is not in order but the verse about the righteous never being foresaken (v. 25) shows it is likely written after many others.

    There are many examples found in other Psalms. For example; we see in verse 13 about God laughing at the wicked; which is mentioned in Psalm 2. Another example found in Psalm 10 is in verse 17 about the arms of the wicked which are broken. We also find verses elsewhere in scripture; including the N.T. One such case in verse 11 is quoted by Jesus in the Gospels in Matthew 5:5.

    We even see elements of predestination in verses 23 to 24. Ephesians 2:10 talks of good works before the foundation of the world prepared for us to perform. Verse 24 gives us the concept of "Perseverance of the Saints" also echoed in Proverbs 24:16. There is the concept largely covered in Psalm 119 about having the law of God in their hearts (v. 31) Verse 34 could be a Millennial reference; exhorting us to wait on the Lord; such a theme of patience is found in numerous other passages along with promises of the Saints (as well as David) to rule when the Kingdom of God comes to earth. ( Jeremiah 30:9; etal).

    The main idea here seems to be the eternal destinies of the righteous and the wicked and the brevity of this life. Passages such as in verse 28 are not popular today. As an individual; we should not seek vengeance on anyone in particular; but we should understand that the suffering of the church at large in the world where persecution is much greater than in this country; for example needs to be recompensed through Divine justice. We all are saved from wrath and being enemies of God and therefore we need to be humble in preaching the Gospel but also deliver the whole truth; including eternal judgment for the damned who will not repent.

    "Resist the devil and He will flee from you" James 4:7

    Dear Acbertha, I suggest disassociating with this person who is asking you to join this group.

    We are told to "avoid even the appearance of evil". (can't find the verse)

    So, it may be best to speak firmly to this person that you will not join him in this group because you are a Christian and belong to Jesus, not the devil, as this group follows the evil one.

    What do I do. I want to wait until my God ge is refuge and my shield. He is also my comforter in times of need. What do I say to the man standing before me asking me to be initiated into illuminati.

    Go you know that I have put all my trust in you for protection, healing, to be my judge lawyer and also to be my provider.

    Today I vote seeking your face even in this situation. I know that when you come into this situation all the serpents shall be defeated. I call upon the name Jedus Christ my lord and saviour and plead that he intercedes in this situation.

    I pray all this through Jesus's Christ who strengthens me. AMEN

    Mark got the answer correct right there. It's the judgement of wicked (especially the backbiters). It can be both physically contextual to the events in Psalm 37 and also prophetic of the things to come shortly before the 2nd coming of Christ. I know someone else probably know the prophetic context behind this better than myself. In short, there is no rapture for the wicked. The wicked (those of Satan) will not be caught up. The rapture is Christ taking His church (the born again) right before the rapture begins so we (the elect) are not left behind to suffer the wrath of the 7-year tribulation.

    I read a preacher once write this:

    "Jesus came to earth the first time "TO" His own approximately 2,000 years ago

    Jesus is coming at the rapture "FOR" His own

    Jesus is coming again at the second coming "WITH" His own"

    Satan has no plan of such but to seduce as many to a much fiery end during the tribulation.

    The day spoken of in psalm 37:13 is most likely the day of God's judgment of the wicked, not the rapture of the Chirch.
  • Dee on Psalms 37:13

    Your explanation was enlightening to me. I never thought of this verse in the way you explained it!
  • Enrique on Psalms 37
    "...and he shall give you the desires of your heart" does not mean he will give you what you want. It means that your desires will be induced by God. That is why the next verse says "...he shall bring it to pass". It's not repetition. It is the granting of desires that he gave you, so to teach you to commit your way to him and trust him; then he will show you his trustworthiness by granting those Godly desires.

    What attracted me immediately to your post, was your name 'Perry' & that you appear to be affiliated with the JWs. I recall that many years ago, in the mid '80s in fact, that I took into spiritual counselling & shelter a young lad by the name of Peter Perry who was the son of an elder at a Kingdom Hall & this lad was tarnished with the name 'rebel' because of his departure from 'the faith'. I'm not suggesting that you both are related but that the name & JW connection got me interested to read further. I don't know what happened to Peter as he left & I went into overseas missionary work a little later. Nevertheless, I learned much about the beliefs of the JWs & of course, having over the years, invited some of them who pass by with their tracts, into my home. Sadly, now they seem to avoid me even when I wave to them with my eagerness to engage in conversation. I guess I might be a 'marked' person.

    The two chief areas of disagreement we have, concern the Deity of Jesus Christ & Eternal Punishment of the sinner. The JWs assert that Jesus Christ was a created Being, & of Eternity, that the sinful dead disappear into non-existence while only the righteous will have part in the Millennial Kingdom.

    On these two points particularly, I get passionately excited about, since belief in the JW understanding of these two doctrines (Person of Jesus Christ & of Last Things), I find that the JW's position is untenable when put under the spotlight of Scripture & God's Character of Holiness & Justice. If all sinners just disappeared into a state of non-existence, then why the need of Christ & His salvation? If to only grant us a hope of being with God in Paradise, then this brings little comfort of fleeing from sin's penalty of rejection & eternal fiery judgement. Our singular hope should be to flee the wrath of God because of our sins & into the Arms of a Merciful Saviour for salvation, eternal rest & worship to Him, Who first loved us enough to save us from Satan's domain.

    Because created the Earth from the beginning to be inhabited by man and subdue it. God's purpose always becomes fulfilled regardless of what man does. Revelation discusses the 1000 year reign of Christ, God's soon to reestablish the earth as a paradise, as in the beginning. It also speaks of 144000, who will reign as kings and priests in Heaven. When there are kings or priests, there are "subjects" so to speak of. 1 Cor 15:24-28 talks further about the milenial reign, and Christ subjecting the kingdom to God again, having rid the earth of all wickedness and corrupt world governments. The churches dont teach this cause they teach many pagan ideas that fly in the face of what the Bible says. God has a name, it is Jehovah or Yahweh in the Hebrew. I encourage you to read this to learn the many truths found in the Bible, without the taint of paganism and false christianity that has deceived many since the first century when even then the "church" was being corrupted. Look at the origin of the trinity and pagan holidays and practices...non-biblical. Remember first and foremost, the Bible alone is the Word of God. Any books or literature only assists with understanding some of its' beautiful truths and meaning.

    In this time before the end, when God will bring about the destruction of those who fail to serve Him, a worldwide preaching work in 1024 languages has been undertaken by the brotherhood of Jehovah's Witnesses, who stay neutral in warfare, because as Jesus said, "my kingdom is no part of this world." JW's are not members of any political affiliation in ANY land. Many people reject them, not surprising that those who preach the truth would be rejected. They have a website . Many truths discussed there. God is allowing people to learn the truth to serve Him and have everlasting life. Only the Bible is the Word of God, no other books etc. thanks for reading this, May God richly bless you.
