1 Let God arise, let his enemies be scattered: let them also that hate him flee before him. 2 As smoke is driven away, so drive them away: as wax melteth before the fire, so let the wicked perish at the presence of God. 3 But let the righteous be glad; let them rejoice before God: yea, let them exceedingly rejoice. 4 Sing unto God, sing praises to his name: extol him that rideth upon the heavens by his name JAH, and rejoice before him. 5 A father of the fatherless, and a judge of the widows, is God in his holy habitation. 6 God setteth the solitary in families: he bringeth out those which are bound with chains: but the rebellious dwell in a dry land. (Psalms 68:1-6 KJV)
These are the times that we all should have great faith in the LORD and pray fervently. We have wars (conflicts) galore, a political system that have gone wild and all sorts of murders and illegal activities. What is going on, what is wrong, it’s too much to even try to mention. Seem as though the majority is trying hard to go to hell, thinking what they are doing is of no consequence. I beg to differ with them. They have their own agenda and down with everyone else. They forget the scriptures and, although they may go to a church or other places of prayer, they forget what the Lord had to say to them (and me). We are all the enemy of God, according to scripture. I, myself, do not want to “melteth” before the fire. We must repent and abide by the scriptures even though most will not. Why follow the majority and forever be in hell?
Most people have a “me” attitude. It’s always them first and, if they can’t have their way, they pout, rant and rave, swear, talk about you, fight, lie, etc. Anything that they think will get them their way. Remind you of anyone? Does it remind you of yourself? It is not too late to repent, repent fervently, not just saying hollow words in hopes of atonement but there must be sincerity. The world is getting harder and life will not get any easier. I don’t know about you but I, for one, do not want to live in a “dry land”.
In previous blogs I talked about the presence of metaphors all through the Bible. Here, in Psalms, the reading is mostly straight forward, hardly a metaphor to be read. There is hardly anything to figure out. The Bible says plainly, get your stuff together and stop whatever you’re doing or perish. Your life may be great now but this life is very, very short. I wrote in a previous blog about God’s time line, how God’s time is measured. The length of time in the after life is unknown but it is surely longer than this life. Would you want a life in the land of “milk and honey” or a life in the “fire”?
So, the messed up politics, crimes and all other things of evil will culminate into a future of fire and brimstone. The way of the Lord, our God, will always lead to life eternal, love, happiness and nothing to ever worry about. Repent and love the Lord and what was promised will be. What is happening today is nothing to what is coming. But, if you have repented, there is nothing to worry about. What’s coming will have no effect. Sit on the sidelines and watch.
