Psalm 1 New Living Translation (NLT)

1 Oh, the JOYS of those who DO NOT
FOLLOW
the ADVICE of the WICKED,
or stand around with SINNERS,
or join in with MOCKERS.
2 But THEY DELIGHT in the LAW of the LORD,
MEDITATING on it Day and Night.​
3 THEY are like trees planted along the riverbank,
bearing FRUIT each season.
THEIR leaves never wither,
and THEY PROSPER in all they do.​

If you truly want to be of God stop quoting and learn His "ways' I really do have this mental picture of you walking around the church saying, "thus saith the Lord". Do you obey His commandments and keep His festivals??? How about His sabbath's??? I really hope you read the article on judging and now have a Hebrew prespective of what we as the children of God are to be as a people who believe and follow His ways.

PSALM 119:

73"YOU made me; YOU created me. Now give me the sense to FOLLOW YOUR COMMANDS.

74 "May all who fear YOU, find in me a cause for JOY,
for I have put my HOPE IN YOUR WORD.
75 I know, O LORD, that YOUR REGULATIONS are fair;
YOU disciplined me because I needed it.

76 Now let YOUR UNFAILING LOVE comfort me,
just as YOU promised me, YOUR servant.
77 Surround me with YOUR TENDER MERCIES so I may live,
because YOUR INSTRUCTIONS are my Delight.

78 Bring disgrace upon the arrogant people who LIED about me;
meanwhile, I will concentrate on YOUR COMMANDMENTS.​

79 Let me be united with all who fear YOU,
with those who know YOUR laws.

80 May I be blameless in keeping YOUR DECREES;
then I will never be ashamed."​

Only someone who has been taught that Paul is the god of the new testament believes in the trinity. Most aren’t even aware He Yeshua, Jesus is spoken of in the old and was their in the beginning. He is the word and the word was God and the word was with God.

Col 1:15-18

15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For by Him 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. 17 And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist. 18 And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence.

Isa 53
The Sin-Bearing Messiah
53 Who has believed our report? And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed? 2 For He shall grow up before Him as a tender plant, And as a root out of dry ground. He has no form or comeliness; And when we see Him, There is no beauty that we should desire Him. 3 He is despised and rejected by men, A Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. And we hid, as it were, our faces from Him; He was despised, and we did not esteem Him.
4 Surely He has borne our grief’s And carried our sorrows; Yet we esteemed Him stricken, Smitten by God, and afflicted. 5 But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed. 6 All we like sheep have gone astray; We have turned, every one, to his own way; And the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.
7 He was oppressed and He was afflicted, Yet He opened not His mouth; He was led as a lamb to the slaughter, And as a sheep before its Shearer’s is silent, So He opened not His mouth. 8 He was taken from prison and from judgment, And who will declare His generation? For He was cut off from the land of the living; For the transgressions of My people He was stricken. 9 And they made His grave with the wicked — But with the rich at His death, Because He had done no violence, Nor was any deceit in His mouth.
10 Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise Him; He has put Him to grief. When You make His soul an offering for sin, He shall see His seed, He shall prolong His days, And the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in His hand. 11 He shall see the labor of His soul, and be satisfied. By His knowledge My righteous Servant shall justify many, For He shall bear their iniquities. 12 Therefore I will divide Him a portion with the great, And He shall divide the spoil with the strong, Because He poured out His soul unto death, And He was numbered with the transgressors, And He bore the sin of many, And made intercession for the transgressors.

Matt 1:22-23
22 So all this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying: 23 "Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel," which is translated, "God with us."

John 1:1-3

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 He was in the beginning with God.

John 1:14

And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.

John 14:9-11

9 Jesus said to him, "Have I been with you so long, and yet you have not known Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father; so how can you say, 'Show us the Father'? 10 Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me? The words that I speak to you I do not speak on My own authority; but the Father who dwells in Me does the works. 11 Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father in Me, or else believe Me for the sake of the works themselves

You're the church whore Botango, repent now

What is also apparent is that bongotango forgot that Bishop Noel Jones was a single man regardless of the calling on his life.

If you ask any single man in the ministry or even a layman in church, the number of women who present their bodies as a living sacrifice to them instead of to the LORD are in the tens of thousands “Monthly”. bongotango was obviously one of them, or she had a desire to be one of them and was rejected somewhere in the process where she is bitter and clearly unable to move on. That’s simply unhealthy and weak minded. When a single lady isn’t being accepted, recognized, or appreciated for her attributes, self preservation should kick in making her to shash shay away never putting a man’s attention above her own dignity.

From vegasvally to

bongotango,
I do recognize that you are very hurt and disappointed that things didn&#8217;t work out the way you had expected them to with Bishop Noel Jones, the City of Refuge and Noel Jones Un-Censored, but I assure you that there are many other exciting available men who will fit the criteria that you are looking for in a relationship. And in California there is a Christian Church just about on every block where you should be able to find one that would fit your needs and expectations.

Lev 19:15-16

'You shall do no injustice in judgment. You shall not be partial to the poor, nor honor the person of the mighty. In righteousness you shall judge your neighbor. 16 You shall not go about as a talebearer among your people; nor shall you take a stand against the life of your neighbor: I am the Lord.

IMMORALITY IS TO BE JUDGED

Many church goers don&#8217;t understand the word because they have been indoctrinated to except the teaching of replacement theology. You know, we are no longer under the law but the age of grace which by the way was in the beginning. Paul was a Pharisee and know the word better than most of his time and when he wrote he was explaining to the pagans what the scriptures tell us. Remember they didn&#8217;t have bibles to purchase from the corner store so most went to the temple where the word was read from the scroll. Many whom the spirit of the Lord directed when into the streets to teach to the locals what the word of God means. Every thing Paul spoke came from God&#8217;s Torah, His teaching and instructions. One such teaching which origin came from the laws of Moses was written in:

1 Cor 5:9-13

Immorality Must Be Judged

9 I wrote to you in my epistle not to keep company with sexually immoral people. 10 Yet I certainly did not mean with the sexually immoral people of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or idolaters, since then you would need to go out of the world. 11 But now I have written to you not to keep company with anyone named a brother, who is sexually immoral, or covetous, or an idolater, or a reviler, or a drunkard, or an extortioner &#8212; not even to eat with such a person.

12 For what have I to do with judging those also who are outside? Do you not judge those who are inside? 13 But those who are outside God judges. Therefore "put away from yourselves the evil person."

Does anyone know why there had to be a death for sin and why it had to be God???

A covenant in the day&#8217;s of old had a deep and personal meaning to everyone involved. To break a covenant meant death in most cases to the party who broke the covenant. This is such the case and the reason god had to come in the flesh and die in place of man. If Avram had passed between the animal parts as did God then man would have been the one to of died for breaking the covenant. As we read Avram was in a deep sleep while God in all His glory passed through the animal parts. God promised Avram he would become a great nation more numerous than the grains of sands or the star&#8217;s in the Heavens. Avram slept and dreamed of His descendants who would spend 400 years as slaves in Egypt. God made this covenant knowing full well man would some day break this covenant and a death would be required. It wasn&#8217;t until what was to be a wedding feast at Mt Sinai and man went whoring in the 40 days Moses was on the mountain top with God that the covenant was broken. The number 40 in Hebrew means testing, trial, and tribulation. It was at that point God decided His people would spend this amount of time [40 years] traveling in the wilderness receiving his grace and mercy but under the penalty of death. The substitute for death was the animal sacrifice until the time of the lord when he came in the flesh to redeem those who where willing to repent and obey his commandments.

&#12288;

Gen 15:6-21

(vi) 7 Then he said to him, &#8220;I am Adonai, who brought you out from Ur-Kasdim to give you this land as your possession.&#8221; 8 He replied, &#8220;Adonai, God, how am I to know that I will possess it?&#8221; 9 He answered him, &#8220;Bring me a three-year-old cow, a three-year-old female goat, a three-year-old ram, a dove and a young pigeon.&#8221; 10 He brought him all these, cut the animals in two and placed the pieces opposite each other; but he didn&#8217;t cut the birds in half. 11 Birds of prey swooped down on the carcasses, but Avram drove them away.

12 As the sun was about to set, a deep sleep fell on Avram; horror and great darkness came over him. 13 Adonai said to Avram, &#8220;Know this for certain: your descendants will be foreigners in a land that is not theirs. They will be slaves and held in oppression there four hundred years. 14 But I will also judge that nation, the one that makes them slaves. Afterwards, they will leave with many possessions. 15 As for you, you will join your ancestors in peace and be buried at a good old age. 16 Only in the fourth generation will your descendants come back here, because only then will the Emori be ripe for punishment.&#8221;

17 After the sun had set and there was thick darkness, a smoking fire pot and a flaming torch appeared, which passed between these animal parts. 18 That day Adonai made a covenant with Avram: &#8220;I have given this land to your descendants &#8212; from the Vadi of Egypt to the great river, the Euphrates River &#8212; 19 the territory of the Keni, the K&#8217;nizi, the Kadmoni, 20 the Hitti, the P&#8217;rizi, the Refa&#8217;im, 21 the Emori, the Kena&#8216;ani, the Girgashi and the Y&#8217;vusi.&#8221;

A personal relationship with the LORD under the LEADERSHIP of the Holy Spirit is what BUILDS A SOLID FOUNDATION of your Salvation and where you will spend ETERNITY...

“So why do you keep calling Me LORD! LORD! when you don’t do what I say DO?"


God does NOT respond to DOUBT.
Luke 6:46

"This is exactly what Isaiah the prophet had predicted: LORD, who has BELIEVED our MESSAGE? To whom has the LORD revealed HIS POWERFUL ARM?” John 12:38

John 13:13
"You call Me "TEACHER AND LORD" and you are right, because that’s WHO I AM

The LORD resists the PRIDEFUL, but He answers the prayers of the HUMBLE.

John 9:38
“Yes, Lord, I BELIEVE!” the man said. And he WORSHIPED JESUS.."

Matthew 15:25
But she came and WORSHIPED HIM pleading again, “LORD, HELP me!”

I WISH TO MAKE THIS VERY CLEAR. I AM NOT JUDGING VEGASVALLY OR BOTANGO FOR PAST SINS, NO! THIS A LIFE STYLE FOR THSE TWO. BECAUSE KNOW ONE HAS BOTHER TO UNDERSTAND THE SCRIPTURES ON JUDGING WE HAVE ALLOWED MANY TO NOT ONLY DECEIVE THE BODY BUT WE HAVE SINNED OURSELVES FOR NOT BEING OBEIENT TO GOD AND HIS COMMANDMENTS. IT ENDS HERE, I WILL BE OBEDIENT MY LORD TO YOUR WORD AND JUDGE THOSE WHO HAVE CONTAMINATED WHAT IS HOLY WITH THE PROFANE

Turn from sin, return to God, and each of you be immersed on the authority of Yeshua the Messiah into forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Ruach HaKodesh!

To listen to the two harlots they would have us believe they are anointed, not so according to the word of God.

Psalm 91 (New Living Translation)


1 "THOSE WHO LIVE IN THE SHELTER OF THE MOST HIGH
WILL FIND REST IN THE SHADOW OF THE ALMIGHTY!

2 "This I SAY ABOUT THE LORD:

He ALONE IS MY PROTECTION, my PLACE OF SAFETY!
HE IS MY GOD! and I TRUST HIM!
3 Because HE RESCUE ME FROM EVERY TRAP
and PROTECTS ME FROM DEADLY DISEASE.

4 He COVERS ME WITH HIS FEATHERS.
He SHELTERS ME WITH HIS WINGS!
HIS FAITHFUL PROMISES ARE MY ARMOR AND PROTECTION.

5 I AM NOT AFRAID OF THE TERRORS IN THE NIGHT
NOR AM I AFRAID OF THE ARROWS THAT FLY IN THE DAY.

6 NOR DO I DREAD DISEASE THAT STALKS IN DARKNESS,
NOR DO I DREAD DISASTER THAT STRIKES IN THE MIDDLE OF THE DAY!

7 ALTHOUGH 1,000 FALL AT MY SIDE,
AND ALTHOUGH 10,0000 ARE DYING AROUND ME,
THESE EVILS WILL NOT TOUCH ME!

8 I WILL OPEN MY EYES AND SEE THAT THE WICKED ARE PUNISHED.

9 IF YOU MAKE THE LORD, YOUR REFUGE,
IF YOU MAKE THE MOST HIGH, YOUR SHELTER,
10 THEN NO EVIL WILL OVERCOME YOU!

NO PLAGUE WILL COME NEAR YOUR HOME.

11 BECAUSE HE WILL ORDER HIS ANGELS TO PROTECT YOU WHEREVER YOU GO!

12 THEY WILL HOLD YOU UP WITH THEIR HANDS SO THAT YOU WON'T EVEN HURT YOUR FOOT ON A STONE!

13 WE WILL TRAMPLE ON LIONS AND COBRAS!

WE WILL CRUSH FIERCE LIONS AND SERPENTS UNDER OUR FEET!

14 THE LORD SAYS, “I RESCUE THOSE WHO LOVE ME.

"I PROTECT THOSE WHO TRUST IN MY NAME!

15 "WHEN YOU CALL ON ME, I WILL ANSWER.

"I AM WITH YOU IN TROUBLE.

"I RESCUE AND HONOR YOU.

16 "I REWARD YOU WITH A LONG LIFE AND GIVE YOU MY SALVATION.”

PSALM 37

"DON'T WORRY about the wicked
NOR ENVY those who do wrong. Because just like grass, they soon FADE AWAY.

Because just like spring flowers, they soon WITHER.

"TRUST IN THE LORD AND DO GOOD!
Then you will live SAFELY in the land and PROSPER.

"ENJOY YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH THE LORD,
and He will give you your Heart’s Desires.

"COMMIT EVERYTHING you do to the LORD."
TRUST HIM, and HE WILL HELP YOU.

"He will make your INNOCENCE RADIATE LIKE THE DAWN,
and the JUSTICE OF YOUR CAUSE WILL SHINE LIKE THE NOONDAY SUN!

"BE STILL IN THE PRESENCE OF THE LORD,
and WAIT PATIENTLY FOR HIM TO ACT.


"DON'T WORRY ABOUT EVIL PEOPLE WHO PROSPER
NOR BE CONCERNED ABOUT THEIR WICKED SCHEMES.

"STOP BEING ANGRY!
Turn from your rage!
"DO NOT LOSE YOUR TEMPER!
IT ONLY LEADS TO HARM.



"Because THE WICKED WILL BE DESTROYED,
BUT THOSE WHO TRUST IN THE LORD WILL POSSESS THE LAND.

"Soon the WICKED will DISAPPEAR.
THOUGH YOU LOOK FOR THEM, THEY WILL BE GONE!

"THE HUMBLE WILL POSSESS THE LAND
AND LIVE IN PEACE AND PROSPERITY.

GENESIS



In the book ofGenesis we can see the Messiah in several scriptures but I would like to pointout the Family of Jacob. As we know Jacob wrested with God and was given thename Israel. Jacob married Leah and had seven children with her, six where menand one Girl. Their are seven days in a week, six of which are of the malegender and one of the female genders. According to the Hebrew language eachword or letter is of one or the other.

The Lord mandatedseven festivals to be celebrated for all our generations and seven is the planof God. This is why Leah was the chosen bride to be for Jacob not Rachel. If weinvestigate the meaning of the children of Jacob and Leah we see the Messiah.



Israel, God prevailed Rueben, see a son Shimeon, Hated Levi, Loved Judah, Praise

Issachar, wages Zebulun, dwell Diana, Bride



This is the way the sages read these names: The Messiah cameas God's son, hated by some loved by others. We should praisehim because he has paid the wages of sin. Soonhe will come to dwell with us and we will be hisBride.

&#12288;

When we sin and repent, we need to show forth the fruit of repentance and be restored (Luke 3:8). When we openly sin and shame the Body of Messiah, we need to be called to account. Joseph "forgave" the sin of his brothers, but he also spoke openly of their transgressions against him (Genesis 50:20). We must always separate the sin from the sinner, forgive the transgressors and seek their restoration, but, like Joseph, we also need to call sin, "sin."

When people continue in their sin after repeated warnings, we are supposed to "take special note of that person and not associate with him, so that he will be put to shame" (2 Thessalonians 3:14; Titus 3:10). Nonetheless, many do not properly judge sin due to wrong teachings about "not judging" others. To understand this truth, we need to see the verse in context. We especially need to connect it with its following verse, and we need to balance it with the rest of Scripture.

Messiah Yeshua said, "Do not judge so that you will not be judged. For in the way you judge, you will be judged; and by your standard of measure, it will be measured to you. Why do you look at the speck that is in your brother's eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, 'Let me take the speck out of your eye,' and behold, the log is in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your

own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother's eye" (Matthew 7:1-5).



[2]

Viewed in context, we see that Yeshua is addressing the hypocritical judgment of brethren; He is speaking against people having a condemning spirit, against attacking brethren for small faults while we have even greater ones. He is warning people against this because, there is an automatic reaction that travels with judging our brothers.

The "judge not..." verse is followed by a "conjunction statement." The sentence that follows it begins with the word "for," or with the Greek word, gár (Strong's#G 1063). In other words, the first verse is an "A" statement that is followed by a connected "B" statement. The verses need to be viewed as a unit. Yeshua is warning that doing "A" will lead to "B." The A-B unit is, when we judge a person, it automatically sets in motion a standard of measure by which we will one day be measured. If we use a measure of judgment, that same measure will later be used on us.

To avoid encountering this reactive measure, many people mistakenly conclude that they will not judge anything - so that they, in turn, will not suffer any form of judgment. The problem with this flawed reasoning is that, not judging is a form of judgment.

When we refuse to judge anything, we are in essence saying, anything goes. When "anything goes" among Believers, even the heathen will judge us to be lawless. The Word warns us that, "Happy is he who does not condemn himself in what he approves" (Romans 14:22). We do not want to be hasty or condescending in our judgments of others - but we also do not want to appear to be someone who "approves" of sin based on our refusal to judge it. In the end, we will not be "happy" if we do this.

We cannot judge the eternal destiny of a brother. Only the Father can disinherit a son. However, we are supposed to judge the fruit of our brethren. Yeshua warned us to "Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves." How do we know enough to beware false prophets? Yeshua said we will "know them by their fruits." He also said that one day, He will throw the trees that bear bad fruit into the fire (Matthew 7:15-20).

For our own spiritual well-being, we must judge the fruit of others, and, leaders sometimes need to warn others. When someone is in a position wherein others look to them for guidance, they have an obligation to speak the truth: "Shepherd the flock of God among you, exercising oversight not under compulsion, but voluntarily, according to the will of God; and not for sordid gain, but with eagerness; not lording it over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock" (1 Peter 5:2-3). Leaders must care for the sheep and not leave them to defend themselves against ravenous wolves.

If we judge in a rash, unjust, or unloving manner, we will only add to the problem and surely be dealt with accordingly. On the other hand, if we go too far in a mistaken understanding of "not judging" the fruit of fellow Believers, we make ourselves look like unaccountable fools to the outside world. We refuse to judge sin when it raises its ugly head in our camps, and consequently, the world ends up being our judge. We become a laughing stock. The true Gospel is then mocked and maligned and we bring shame to the Name of our GOD.

When the people of Corinth were having problems with sin in their camp, Paul said to them, "If any of you has a dispute with another, dare he take it before the ungodly for judgment instead of before the saints? Do you not know that the saints will judge the world? And if you are to judge the world, are you not competent to judge trivial cases? Do you not know that we will judge angels? How much more matters of this life?" (1 Corinthians 6:1-3).

Believers are supposed to judge matters in this life!

[3]
Ironically, we often feel free to pass judgments on those who are in the world, but are afraid to say anything about the bad fruit of those who claim to belong to the Messiah. Yet, Paul said, " What have I to do with judging outsiders? Do you not judge those who are within the church/congregation?" (1 Corinthians 5:12). The world is already condemned. We are supposed to be a light to them, a ray of hope. But, if they see the continuing darkness of worldly sin in our congregations, our lights will appear to be dim, indeed. Thus we must judge sin in our congregations.Everyone sins and falls short of the glory of GOD (Romans 3:23). If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us (1 John 1:8). If we are merciless with others, judgment without mercy will be shown to us. Mercy triumphs over judgment (James 2:13). Therefore, judgment by brethren should be reserved for "continual sins."

In Christian circles continuing sin is often overlooked due to bad teachings that lead people to believe in the idea that they are to "judge not..." This mistaken conclusion has caused many to accuse Christians of thinking that they can "slide into Heaven on greasy grace." In the Hebrew Roots and Messianic movements, this harlotrous teaching wears a different dress. Its designer label is "LaShon Hara," meaning "The Evil Tongue."

It is true that we are not to speak "evil" of our leaders (Acts 23:5). James warns us not to "slander" a brother (James 4:11). 1 Chronicles 16:22 says, "Do not touch My anointed ones, and do My prophets no harm." We are told "to speak evil of no one, to avoid quarreling, to be gentle, and to show perfect courtesy toward all people" (Titus 3:2). However, like the "judge not" mistake, these verses, too, can be misconstrued....

Truth is neither "evil" nor "slanderous." Truth sets people free. Our faith grows strong in it (John 8:32; Colossians 2:7). Zechariah 8:16 tells us, "These are the things which you should do: speak the truth to one another; judge with truth and judgment for peace in your gates." Evil and slanderous speech consists of lies. If speaking the truth about someone were evil, then our GOD would be guilty of that sin, over, and over, and over again. He is not guilty, and it is not wrong to speak the truth in a matter. That is the only way we will ever have peace in our gates.

Yet, this truth, too, needs to be measured against heart intent. If we are telling the "truth" about someone because we want to harm their reputation, the fact that we spoke "truth" will not erase the sin of malice that lies in our heart. When we speak the truth, it must be spoken with perfect courtesy and regard for the one(s) involved: "Speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in all aspects into Him who is the head, even Messiah (Ephesians 4:15).

When we refuse to judge anything, we are in essence saying, anything goes. When "anything goes" among Believers, even the heathen will judge us to be lawless. The Word warns us that, "Happy is he who does not condemn himself in what he approves" (Romans 14:22). We do not want to be hasty or condescending in our judgments of others - but we also do not want to appear to be someone who "approves" of sin based on our refusal to judge it. In the end, we will not be "happy" if we do this.

1 Cor 5:9-13

Immorality Must Be Judged

9 I wrote to you in my epistle not to keep company with sexually immoral people. 10 Yet I certainly did not mean with the sexually immoral people of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or idolaters, since then you would need to go out of the world. 11 But now I have written to you not to keep company with anyone named a brother, who is sexually immoral, or covetous, or an idolater, or a reviler, or a drunkard, or an extortioner &#8212; not even to eat with such a person.

12 For what have I to do with judging those also who are outside? Do you not judge those who are inside? 13 But those who are outside God judges. Therefore "put away from yourselves the evil person."

Psalm 49

1 "HEAR THIS, all you peoples;
LISTEN, all who live in this world,
2 both Low and High [in society's eyes],
Rich and poor alike:
3 My Mouth will speak WORDS OF WISDOM;
the MEDITATION of my heart will give you UNDERSTANDING.

4 I will turn my ear to a proverb;
with the harp I will expound my riddle:

5 "Why should I fear when EVIL DAYS COME,
when WICKED DECEIVERS surround me—
6 THOSE WHO TRUST IN THEIR WEALTH
and boast of their GREAT RICHES?

7 "No one can REDEEM the life of another
or give to God a RANSOM for them—
8 the ransom for a life is costly,
NO PAYMENT is ever enough—
9 so that they should live on forever
and NOT see decay.
10 Because we all can see that the WISE die,
that the FOOLISH and the SENSELESS also die,
LEAVING THEIR WEALTH to others.

---

12 "People, DESPITE their wealth, do NOT endure;
they are like the BEASTS that perish.

13 "This is the FATE of those who TRUST IN THEMSELVES,
and of their FOLLOWERS, who APPROVE WHAT THEY SAY.


14 "They are like sheep and are destined to die;
Death will be their shepherd
(but the righteous will prevail over them in the morning).


"Their forms will decay in the grave,
far from their Princely Mansions.

15 "But God will REDEEM me from the realm of the dead;
He will surely take me to himself.

16 "Do NOT be in awe when others grow Rich,
when the Splendor of their houses Increases;

17 "because they will take NOTHING with them when they die,
their SPLENDOR will NOT go with them.

18 "Though while they live, they count themselves BLESSED, and people PRAISE YOU WHEN YOU PROSPER —

19 "they will JOIN THOSE who have gone before them, who will NEVER AGAIN see the LIGHT OF LIFE.

20 "People who have wealth, BUT LACK UNDERSTANDING are LIKE THE BEASTS THAT DIE.

“You do NOT know Me nor my Father,” Jesus replied. “If you knew Me, you would know My Father also." John 8:19(b)

42"Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love Me because I have come here from God. I have not come on My own; God SENT Me. Why CAN'T you understand what I'm saying to you? Because you are unable to hear what I say. You belong to YOUR father, the DEVIL, and you want to carry out YOUR father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he LIES, he speaks his native language because he is a LIAR and the FATHER OF LIES. Yet because I tell the TRUTH, you do not believe me! Can any of you prove me guilty of sin? If I am telling the TRUTH, why don’t you believe me? Whoever belongs to God hears what God says. The reason you do not hear is that you do not belong to God.

your daddy the adversary can copy and paste as well and he does it well through those like yourself. If you are of God why did you groan at "EVERY" article about the works of God?? Why did you lie about others on these forums?? why did you curse at others on these forums??? tell us again about your anointing, yea right!!!

Psalm 19

1 "The Heavens speaks to the GLORY of God,
and the sky displays what His Hands have made.

2 "One day tells a story to the next.
One night shares knowledge with the next Without talking,
without words, without their voices being heard.

4 "Yet, their sound has gone out into the entire world,
their message to the ends of the earth.

"He has set up a tent in the Heavens for the Sun,
5 which comes out of its chamber like a bridegroom.
Like a CHAMPION, it is eager to run its course.
6 It rises from one END of the Heavens.
It circles around to the other.
NOTHING is hidden from its heat.​

7 The TEACHINGS of the LORD are PERFECT.
They renew the soul.
The WORD of the LORD is DEPENDABLE.
It makes gullible people WISE.
8 The INSTRUCTIONS of the LORD are CORRECT.
They make the heart HAPPY.
The command of the Lord is RADIANT.
It makes the eyes SHINE.
9 The fear of the Lord is PURE.
It endures forever.

The decisions of the Lord are TRUE.
They are completely FAIR.
10 They are MORE desirable than gold, even the FINEST gold.
They are SWEETER THAN HONEY, even the drippings from a HONEYCOMB.
11 As your servant, I am warned by them.
There is a GREAT REWARD in following them.​

12 Who can notice every mistake?
FORGIVE my hidden faults.

13 KEEP me from sinning.
Do not let anyone gain CONTROL over me.
Then I will be BLAMELESS,
and I will be FREE from any great offense.

14 May the WORDS FROM MY MOUTH and the THOUGHTS OF MY HEART
BE ACCEPTABLE & PLEASING TO YOU, O LORD, my ROCK and my DEFENDER."​

PSALMSS 1 GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)

1 "BLESSED are YOU who do NOT
follow the advice of WICKED people,
take the path of SINNERS,
or join the company of MOCKERS.
2 Rather, YOU who delight in the TEACHINGS OF THE LORD
and reflects on HIS TEACHINGS day and night.

3 YOU are like a TREE PLANTED BESIDE STREAMS—
a tree that produces FRUIT in SEASON
and whose leaves do NOT wither.
YOU succeed in everything YOU do.

4 WICKED people are NOT like that.
Instead, they are like husks that the wind blows away.
5 That is why WICKED people will not be able to stand in the judgment
and SINNERS will NOT be able to stand where Righteous people gather.

6 The LORD KNOWS the way of Righteous people,
but the way of WICKED people will end."
