“The Destructive Nature of Sin” – Psalm 7:12-17

David continues to discuss the judgment of God against the wicked, specifically those who are slandering him. The imminence of God’s judgment demands immediate repentance David has just finished expressing how God is just and has a righteous anger against those who do evil. He now describes what will happen to those who do not repent. God’s judgment is as imminent as an arrow from a drawn bow. It only takes one more step into evil for God to unleash…

“Responding to Slander” – Psalm 7:1-5

Background This is a “rambling poem” of David. It covers many different rambling thoughts, but the main circumstance that David is singing about is the slander of Cush. We do not have this incident recorded for us in Scripture, so we do not know if this was while Saul was king or after David became king. Either way, Saul was from the tribe of Benjamin so there was always some level of animosity towards David from the Benjamites. David tried…

“Overwhelming Grief” – Psalm 6

Background This Psalm of David was to be played upon a stringed instrument that was an octave lower than normal. It would be comparable to a cello. The song is one of distress, and a lower musical accompaniment adds to the melancholy feeling. We do not know the exact background of the psalm; all we know is that David is having a difficult time. This could be because of his sin, some sickness, the loss of a loved one, some…

God as Father (Psalm 68:5-6)

Because this Sunday is Father’s day, we are going to be looking at God as a Father from Psalm 68. God identifies as Father When Jesus revealed God to us He revealed Him as Father. Of all the positions and relations that He could have chosen God ordained the position of father to most closely resemble His character, nature, and operations in this world. Fathers have an awesome responsibility In light of this fathers have a huge responsibility. Our children’s…

Foundations of Our Faith (Psalm 11:3)

The foundation of our faith is under constant assault. If the foundations crumble, our faith will fall. We must strengthen and pass on the foundations If our faith is going to stand, we must strengthen the foundations. We must constantly be reminded of and refresh our minds to the great foundational truths of Christianity. In addition to this we must pass on these truths to our children and others who are new in the faith. Jesus is our foundation Christianity…

Suffering – Man’s Purpose

In order to better understand human suffering, we must fully grasp the purpose for which God created this world. From this perspective we can better understand how human suffering fits into His purpose. To the chief Musician upon Gittith, A Psalm of David. O LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! who hast set thy glory above the heavens. Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength because of thine enemies,…

The Disease of the Soul (Psalm 16:11)

Over the next few weeks we are going to be taking a break from John to take a closer look at the human condition. We want to see why we were created, how the Fall affected us, and why we desire certain sins. Throughout the whole study we want to see how Jesus forgives us, heals us, and delivers us. It is my prayer that this study will help you see victory over habitual sins, find peace in Christ, and…

The Family – Children (Part 1)

As we continue to look at the family, we now turn our attention to children. First, we want to see the theological significance of children. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth. Genesis 1:28 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations,…
