So, you have read the book of Psalm chapter one, and you believe you understand the message of the Psalm. But what if I tell you, there is more to Psalm one than we really understand?
1 Samuel 2:10 "The adversaries of the LORD shall be broken to pieces; out of heaven shall he thunder upon them: the LORD shall judge the ends of the earth, and he shall give strength unto his king, and exalt the horn of his anointed." But how will these things come to pass, will they come to pass on their own, or will we have to play a role in the fall of the world empires?
Blessed are the poor who is choosing to turn away from the world to accept the blessing of God because the world is passing away along with its lust to establish for itself a kingdom without God. Because the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life is the world’s desire to build a kingdom of their own without God.
Are we the friend of Jesus the King of kings? This was a question presented to the disciples of Jesus Christ, and not just the twelve but those who would come to accept Jesus as their king. Judas said he was a friend but then chose to sit at the enemy of the Lord's table to betray his king with a kiss. And do we really believe in the authority of Jesus Christ?
