Our prayer today and all the days of
our life is to Walk in the Spirit. We hear the words of David when he asked God
to help him as he waged battle with his enemies. We are so grateful for the Word
of God that is an inspiration in all manners of trouble. Thus as the
unbelievers attack us (FreedomJournal) and God's people we gain strength from
prayer. As we gain strength and confidence from the Word, we are guided by the
Therefore no matter how fierce the
storm we have Joy and Peace. We have Truth and feel good about the Good News of
Jesus Christ. We are so grateful Father for your Word of Truth, our Savior and
the Holy Spirit.
Peace and Love,

CHRISTIANITY: FALSE TEACHING, FALSE DOCTRINES
THE MIRACLE OF HEALING
PART 13: THE HEALING PSALMS
the name of God, Master of the universe, Ruler of the earth.
The Book of Psalms follows "the
law" and "the prophets" noting the final division of the Old Testament called the writings. Luke 24:44
Jesus appears to the disciples in
In the Book of Acts Luke reveals that
Jesus spent 40 days with his disciples between his resurrection and ascension. The Prophets, the
Psalms and the Law of Moses is a way to describe the entire
Old Testament. The entire Old Testament turns us to the Messiah. In Psalm 22
and Isaiah 53 his suffering is prophesied. His resurrection was predicated in
Psalm 16:9-11 and Isaiah 53:10-11.
The inspiring subject matter of the
Psalms is the leading reason why the Psalms are cherished by Christians and quoted extensively in the New
Testament. The Book of Psalms is a collection of religious
songs listed as 150. The Hebrew word for Psalms is Tehillim, meaning praises.
Psalms in Latin and English Bibles come from the Greek word
Psalmoi, which means twangings of harp strings and songs sung
to the accompaniment of harps.
The Hebrew Bible calls this book
"praises" or "songs of praise." The Bible is the word of
God to man. Psalms one
of the richest books in the Bible contains the words of man to God. Finally
Psalm 119 is the longest of the Psalms; God is addressed or referred to
in every one of its 176 verses.
Psalms 6:2 and 1-10. A Psalm of
David: Deliverance in trouble. A Prayer In Time of Trouble.
6:2. "Have mercy upon me, O
Lord; for I am weak: O Lord, heal me, for my bones are vexed."
David prays to God for relief from his troubles. As he accepted his punishment, David begged God to not punish him in anger. The Prophet Jeremiah also made this request to God in Jeremiah
to correct him gently and not in anger.
6:8. "Depart from me all ye
workers of iniquity; for the Lord hath heard the voice of my weeping."
God answered the prayer of David and
gave him courage to oppose his enemies. With the confidence rendered by the power of God David
conquered fear. Thus, he realized the best defense against the
enemies of God and God's people is to walk in the spirit and be consumed
with the knowledge of God. Therefore, our on-going study of the Word,
prayer, worship and the confidence in the Holy Spirit will
keep us strong.
