Psalm 8, Above the Heavens!

Psalm 8:1-2

“…who [Jesus], being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross. Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father,” Philippians 2:6-11.

“For by Him [Jesus Christ] all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist [are held together].” Colossians 1:16-17.

Psalm 7, God My Trust

Psalm 7:1-17

“Then Jonathan [King Saul’s son] said to the young man who bore his armor, ‘Come, let us go over to the garrison of these uncircumcised; it may be that the Lord will work for us. For nothing restrains the Lord from saving by many or by few.’ So his armorbearer said to him, ‘Do all that is in your heart. Go then; here I am with you, according to your heart.’ Then Jonathan said, ‘Very well, let us cross over to these men, and we will show ourselves to them.’” 1 Samuel 14:6-8.

“So both of them showed themselves to the garrison of the Philistines. And the Philistines said, ‘Look, the Hebrews are coming out of the holes where they have hidden.’ Then the men of the garrison called to Jonathan and his armorbearer, and said, ‘Come up to us, and we will show [teach] you something.’ Jonathan said to his armorbearer, ‘Come up after me, for the Lord has delivered them into the hand of Israel.’ And Jonathan climbed up on his hands and knees with his armorbearer after him; and they fell before Jonathan. And as he came after him, his armorbearer killed them. That first slaughter which Jonathan and his armorbearer made was about twenty men within about half an acre of land.” 1 Samuel 14:11-14.

An acre is 43,560 square feet, less than half an acre would be less than half the square footage of a football field, which is 300 by 160 feet, not counting end zones.

Psalm 6, I Am Weak

 Psalm 6:1-10

“And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom He predestined [to be conformed to the image of His Son], these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified.” Romans 8:28-30.

Every Christian must commit these words to heart for times of trouble.

Psalm 94, Innocent Blood

Psalm 94:20-23

“Shall the throne of iniquity, which devises evil by law, have fellowship with You?” Psalm 94:20.

According to the lexicon, iniquity in this sense of the word means the destruction which someone (in this case government) brings upon another. Other words which may clarify this are injury, mischief, or wickedness.

The nations of the world are making laws which discriminate against Christians in particular and morality in general by using socialist politically correct teachings as guidelines.

Psalm 94, Your Mercy, O Lord

Psalm 94:16-19

“I waited patiently for the Lord; and He inclined to me, and heard my cry. He also brought me up out of a horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my steps.” Psalm 40:1-2.

It has been noted in these last four studies of Psalm 94 that the psalm is prophetic of the time during the tribulation which is rapidly coming upon us. In these next four verses we begin to see who rises up for the believer in this time of hopelessness.
