PRE-AMBLE by Robert
In the recently released article “Spiritual Discernment” published January 09, 2020, we had King David in Ps.106:39 Identify how Satan would in the future bring mankind into bondage. And continued in v40 and v41 describing what would take
place with those who would fall into bondage. Considering this possibly was forecast some 3000+ years past.
What, we are exposed to in this next release is how time and again our Lord, brought warnings forward for His children, to be warned of the very thing King David forecasts for God’s future children in the Psalms.
It will be shown how in the days of Yeshua, and the Apostles, there were those who were unable to discern these warnings, either through ignorance or in defiance of God.
The keynote of Psalms 105:1-45 is, “Remember His mighty deeds,” that of Psalms 106:1-48 is, “They forgot His mighty deeds.”
As David and Peter did, those walking as Watchmen today will continue to explain they are doing Yeshua’s work, and the warnings will continue.
OPENING STATEMENT by Robert
Matthew Henry in his commentary reveals God brought his judgments upon them and what else could be expected? For his name is Jealous, and he is a jealous God (1) He fell out with them for it, Psalms 106:40. He was angry with them: The wrath of God, that consuming fire, was kindled against his people for from them he took it as more insulting and ungrateful than from the heathen that never knew him.
Nay, he was sick of them: He abhorred his own inheritance, which once he had taken pleasure in yet the change was not in him but in them. This is the worst thing in sin, that it makes us loathsome to God and the nearer any are to God in profession the more loathsome they are if they rebel against him, like a dunghill at your door (2) Their enemies then fell upon them, and, their defence having departed, made an easy prey of them (Psalms 106:41,42): He gave them into the hands of the heathen. Observe here how the punishment answered to the sin: They mingled with the heathen and learned their works from them they willingly took the infection of sin, and therefore God justly made use of them as the instruments of their correction. Sinners often see themselves ruined by those by whom they have suffered themselves to be debauched. Satan, who is a tempter, will be a tormentor. The heathen hated them.
Apostates lose all the love on God’s side and get none on Satan’s and when those that hated them ruled over them, and they were brought into subjection under them, no marvel that they oppressed them and ruled them with rigour and thus God made them know the difference between his service and the service of the kings of the countries, 2 Chronicles 12:8.
Christ’s cures strike at the root, and remove the effect by taking away the cause; they open the lips, by breaking Satan’s power in the soul. Nothing can convince those who are under the influence of pride. They will believe anything, however false or absurd, rather than the Holy Scriptures; thus, they show the enmity of their hearts against a holy God.
CLOSING STATEMENT by Robert
Someone had related, people really don’t want the complete truth in their lives. So why are you presenting what they are not wanting? Being in prayer and meditation has, lead me,
to this recognition. If the whole truth frightens you or offends you in any way, perhaps, you need to stop fooling yourself that half-truths are going to keep you on the narrow path to eternal peace and life. Best you stop and reflect, to observe where you are positioned in your walk.
As for delivering the truth, remember God will not deal with liars, and when you don’t tell the full truth because you’re afraid someone might be scared or offended. You are placing yourself in the position of a liar, because you are only telling half-truth the other half is a lie which you are hiding behind, out of fear, of not belonging or being accepted, by those of the world.
May our Father in heaven place His truth in your heart
to be shared without fear and apprehension as His love and compassion. Narrow and difficult is the path we follow. On that path, we recognize Yeshua’s footprints, as he passed this way before you, and left them to be followed. In each print we place our foot, it reveals the truths, about the hardships Yeshua endured. They are not half-truths, but truths, of what we will face, as we continue our journey. For those who can’t handle full truths, there are side paths leading to the wide path for an easier journey filled with half-truths. The choice of which path to follow in order to serve is ours alone.
Now having this example before us, you would think to go forward should be a whole lot less complicated and with fewer distractions. How better to diffuse the enemy than by confronting him directly and actually demonstrating God’s strength, love, compassion and desire to save all especially having Yeshua present to make it happen.
