Oh come, let us sing to the Lord! Let us shout joyfully to the Rock of our salvation. Let us come before His Presence with thanksgiving; Let us shout joyfully to Him with psalms and praise.
Beloved, say this to yourself: “It is my turn to sing to The LORD! It is my turn to shout joyfully to the Rock of my salvation, Amen. It is my turn to come before His Presence with Thanksgiving int my heart. His court with praise, for I will rejoice for He has made me glad!
So, brethren shout joyfully to Him with songs of joy, praise and gratitude that He has placed in Your heart, Amen.
BECAUSE this is my season of victory in Jesus name, Amen
Not a ‘musician’? Make music in your heart, for that is where we truly are! The Psalms were written as the Talmud, Jewish Rabbinic tradition states in Baba Bathra 14b: “David wrote the book of Psalms with the help of ten elders, with the help of Adam, the first, and Melchizedek and Abraham and Moses and Heman and Jeduthun and Asaph and the three sons of Korah”.
They are known to so many! Favorite?
The Book of Psalms presents two daunting challenges to the Bible blog. First, because it’s just a series of poems, in no particular order, there is no compelling reason to start at Psalm 1 and read on to Psalm 150. You might as well start at Psalm 47 and then read 112 and then 6 and then 65 and then so on.
These have been popular summaries, so I thought I would compile the Top 10 in my experience with reviews by so many. According to number of retweets. Without further ado..
The LORD is my shepherd. He leads me in paths of righteousness. I will fear no evil. I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.
I lift up my eyes to the hills; my help comes from the LORD. He who keeps you will not slumber. The LORD will keep you from all evil.
I give you thanks, O LORD! All the kings of the Earth will praise You. Though I walk in the midst of trouble, You preserve my life.
My soul waits for God alone. He alone is my rock and my salvation. Trust in Him at all times, O people. Power and Love belong to God.
God is our refuge. We will not fear, though the Earth give way. The nations rage, kingdoms fall. “Be still and know that I am God.”
Praise The LORD! For great is His Love towards us.
Do not be envious of evildoers, for they will fade like the grass. The righteous will inherit the Earth. The LORD is their stronghold.
Blessed is the man who does not walk with the wicked, whose delight is in the law of The LORD. He is like a tree planted by the water.
I waited patiently for The LORD. He drew me up from the pit. I delight to do Your will, O God. My heart fails me, but You are my help.
How lovely is Your dwelling place, O LORD! A day in Your courts is better than a thousand elsewhere. For the LORD is a sun and shield.
Psalm 23 at number 1 is no surprise, but Psalm 121 was actually only one retweet behind.
Most of the Top 10 contain famous and quotable verses. The main surprise is Psalm 138 at Number 3.
Psalm 84 like so many are verses shared in The New Testament!
“But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day.”
2 Peter 3:8
“And even in Psalms! A thousand years in your sight are like a day that has just gone by,
or like a watch in the night.”
Brethren, no truer words have been expressed on this topic! Here on Earth, time is measured by the rising and setting of the sun!
“So the sun stood still,
and the moon stopped,
till the nation avenged itself on its enemies,
as it is written in the Book of Jashar.
The sun stopped in the middle of the sky and delayed going down about a full day. There has never been a day like it before or since, a day when the Lord listened to a human being. Surely the Lord was fighting for Israel!”
Why do we learn to do as His-story, God’s story points us to do?
According to the Hebrew Bible, Joshua was one of the twelve spies of Israel sent by Moses to explore the land of Canaan. In Numbers 13:1–16, and after the death of Moses, he led the Israelite tribes in the conquest of Canaan, and allocated the land to the tribes.
Why? And where? Is this seen?
“As long as Moses held up his hands, the Israelites were winning, but whenever he lowered his hands, the Amalekites were winning. When Moses’ hands grew tired, they took a stone and put it under him and he sat on it. Aaron and Hur held his hands up—one on one side, one on the other—so that his hands remained steady till sunset. So Joshua overcame the Amalekite army with the sword.” Exodus 17:11-13
This brings a HUGE teaching point!
Jesus said (A “PART” of God) said:
“Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.”
There might be a ‘wonderment’ about the number of times The name of Jesus is used.
Check this out:
“God did extraordinary miracles through Paul, so that even handkerchiefs and aprons that had touched him were taken to the sick, and their illnesses were cured and the evil spirits left them.
Some Jews who went around driving out evil spirits tried to invoke the name of the Lord Jesus over those who were demon-possessed. They would say, “In the name of the Jesus whom Paul preaches, I command you to come out.” Seven sons of Sceva, a Jewish chief priest, were doing this. One day the evil spirit answered them, “Jesus I know, and Paul I know about, but who are you?” Then the man who had the evil spirit jumped on them and overpowered them all. He gave them such a beating that they ran out of the house naked and bleeding.
When this became known to the Jews and Greeks living in Ephesus, they were all seized with fear, and the name of the Lord Jesus was held in high honor.”
We learn here that there will be falsehoods. In Matthew 7 Jesus clearly said:
“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’
As shared, The Bible is One! His-story NEVER changes. What has been is spoken and related in times to come. What has been done, even if not remembered will occur again, Amen.
“What has happened before will happen again. What has been done before will be done again. There is nothing new in the whole world.
“Look,” they say, “here is something new!” But no, it has all happened before, long before we were born.
No one remembers what has happened in the past, and no one in days to come will remember what happens between now and then.”
As shared from The New Testament as in The Old, His-story IS history, Amen.
