“Killing Poor People for Profit”

Text: Psalm 10:8-12 Main thoughts: Last week we saw the proud heart behind the oppression of the poor. This week we look at the actual oppression of the poor. The lies, deceit, and cursing move into actual actions. Secret sins As we read of the oppression of the poor it is very evident that this all takes place in secret. Even though we will all eventually see this oppression, we need to remember that it is always done in a…

“The Wicked Described” – Psalm 10:4-7

We looked last time at how the psalmist is upset at the oppression of the poor and is crying out to God for Him to intervene. He now continues this idea by describing the wicked.

Those who ignore God’s Law and live…

“Christ’s Victory” (Part 3) – Psalm 9:13-16

The last few weeks we have been looking at David’s song of victory. We pick up in verse 13. Actively opposed As we listen to David sing his song of victory, we could quickly come to the wrong conclusion. David has won victories, but David is CURRENTLY facing opposition. It is easy to have confidence after you have received victory; David has confidence when he has not received victory. David confidently cries out to God for victory. Several things of…
