OUTREACH SITE: Israel has mobilized for war. The mobilization has been completed with a live fire drill to test the functionality of all systems. Israel is now at battle positions and good to go. The US and allies are ready to strike Syria.
Israel could do a two / three week Gaza Op before the US strikes Syria? Maybe? We shall see?
The Righteous Complain Over Deliverance Delayed
1Why standest thou afar off, O Lord? why hidest thou thyself in times of [my, our] trouble?
2 The wicked in his pride doth persecute the poor: let them be taken in the devices that they have imagined. 3 For the wicked boasteth of his heart’s desire, and blesseth the covetous, whom the Lord abhorreth. 4 The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek after God: God is not in all his thoughts. 5 His ways are always grievous; thy judgments are far above out of his sight: as for all his [God's] enemies, he puffeth [God blasts them with the words of his mouth] at them.
6 He [the wicked] hath said in his heart, I shall not be moved: for I shall never be in adversity. 7 His mouth is full of cursing and deceit and fraud: under his tongue is mischief and vanity.
8 He sitteth in the lurking places of the villages: in the secret places doth he murder the innocent: his eyes are privily set against the poor. 9 He lieth in wait secretly as a lion in his den: he lieth in wait to catch the poor: he doth catch the poor, when he draweth him into his net. 10 He croucheth, and humbleth himself, that the poor may fall by his strong ones.
The wicked man hath no pity on others but uses them as his own merchandise, destroying them in the physical and spiritual sense. the wicked plunders the needy and hastens to enrich and exalt himself, and the spiritually wicked do this in the spiritual sense, neglecting the teachings and zeal of the commandments of God and teaching others to do likewise.
11 He hath said in his heart, God hath forgotten: he [God] hideth his face; he will never see it. [God will not see or care what I do]
The spiritually wicked says that I am God’s servant and I have a right to do these thing, forgetting the words of Christ.
Mat 24:48 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming;
49 And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken;
50 The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of,
51 And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
12 Arise, O Lord; O God, lift up thine hand: forget not the humble.
Deliver your faithful from the wicked smiter who oppresses your beloved.
The wicked does not believe that God will judge him wicked or remember his deeds against God’s commandments and the Beloved of the Lord.
13 Wherefore doth the wicked contemn God? he hath said in his heart, Thou wilt not require it. 14 Thou hast seen it; for thou beholdest mischief and spite, to requite it with thy hand: the poor committeth himself unto thee; thou art the helper of the fatherless.
God shall root out every deed of wicked rebellion against his law and persecution against the zealous and will destroy it.
Mat 25:41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:
42 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:
43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.
44 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?
45 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.
46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.
If this be the end of those who did not help; how more sore is the end of those wicked men who drive out the righteous the zealous from the churches?
You who are zealous and under pressure; remember the words of our Lord.
2 Ti 4:3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; 4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.
15 Break thou the arm [strength] of the wicked and the evil man: seek out his wickedness till thou find none.
16 The Lord is King for ever and ever: the heathen [wicked] are perished out of his land.
17 Lord, thou hast heard the desire of the humble [repentant and teachable]: thou wilt prepare their heart, thou wilt cause thine ear to hear: 18 To judge the fatherless and the oppressed, that the man of the earth may no more oppress.
1 In the Lord put I my trust: how say ye to my soul, Flee as a bird to your mountain?
2 For, lo, the wicked bend their bow, they make ready their arrow upon the string, that they may privily [secretly] shoot at the upright in heart.
3 If the foundations [our foundation is God's law] be destroyed, what can the righteous do?
4 The Lord is in his holy temple, the Lord’s throne is in heaven: his eyes behold, his eyelids try, the children of men.
5 The Lord trieth [tests] the righteous: but the wicked and him that loveth violence his soul hateth.
Those who break God’s commandments and teach others to compromise with God’s law and to tolerate sin are the wicked.
6 Upon the wicked he shall rain snares, fire and brimstone, and an horrible tempest: this shall be the portion of their cup.
7 For the righteous Lord loveth righteousness [the DOERS of his commandments] ; his countenance doth behold the upright.
1 Help, Lord; for the godly man ceaseth [is rejected] ; for the faithful fail from among the children of men. 2 They speak vanity every one with his neighbour: with flattering lips and with a double heart do they speak.
3 The Lord shall cut off all flattering lips, and the tongue that speaketh proud things:
4 Who have said, With our tongue [words of vanity] will we prevail; our lips are our own: who is lord over us?
5 For the oppression of the poor, for the sighing of the needy, now will I arise, saith the Lord; I will set him in safety from him that puffeth at him.
God will deliver his people from the great swelling words of vanity conceived by wicked, vain and arrogant men.
6 The words [commandments and teachings] of the Lord are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. 7 Thou shalt keep them, O Lord, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.
8 The wicked walk on every side, when the vilest men are exalted.
Be careful who you follow..
1 How long wilt thou forget me, O Lord? for ever? how long wilt thou hide thy face from me? 2 How long shall I take counsel in my soul, having sorrow in my heart daily? how long shall mine enemy be exalted over me?
3 Consider and hear me, O Lord my God: [en] lighten mine eyes [open my eyes to your ways and law] , lest I sleep the sleep of death; 4 Lest mine enemy say, I have prevailed against him; and those that trouble me rejoice when I am moved.
I shall make the Lord my trust all my days and on his law will I dwell night and day.
5 But I have trusted in thy mercy; my heart shall rejoice in thy salvation. 6 I will sing unto the Lord, because he hath dealt bountifully with me.
1 The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.
The foolish of the world say there is no God and the foolish tares in the Church organizations say that there is a God and I am the master in his absence. Instead of teaching zeal for the commandments of God; they condemn the zealous for God, and exalt the followers of themselves.
2 The Lord looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God. 3 They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one.
4 Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge? [including the elders] who eat up my people as they eat bread, and call not upon the [commandments of the Lord and upon the] Lord.
5 There were they in great fear: for God is in the generation of the righteous [zealous for him and his law].
6 Ye have shamed the counsel of the poor, because the Lord is his refuge.
You have hated the zealous for God whose refuge is the Lord. Because you wanted followers after yourselves, you hated the example of the zealous who followed the law of God, casting them out lest their zeal for God spread throughout the Assembly and the people be turned back to God.
Oh how the zealous long for the coming of the salvation of the Lord when he comes to deliver the zealous for his word!
7 Oh that the salvation of Israel were come out of Zion! when the Lord bringeth back the captivity of his people, Jacob shall rejoice, and Israel shall be glad.
1 Lord, who shall abide in thy tabernacle? who shall dwell in thy holy hill?
2 He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth in his heart.
The man who refrains from any sin, and liveth in the commandments of God, whose heart is full of the truth (God is truth) shall be in the resurrection of teh first fruits and shall be a part of the government of God on his Holy Hill.
3 He that backbiteth not with his tongue, nor doeth evil to his neighbour, nor taketh up a reproach against his neighbour.
Backbiting is to speak evil of others in their absence so that they cannot defend themselves from the verbal attack and slander. Slanderers and those who bear deliberate false witness shall NOT be in the resurrection to spirit.
4 In whose [God's] eyes a vile person is contemned; but he [God] honoureth them that fear [respects and obeys] the Lord.
He [the man that] that sweareth to his own hurt, and changeth not [keeping his word even to his own cost]. 5 He that putteth not out his money to usury, nor taketh reward [advantage] against the innocent. He that doeth these things shall never be moved.
1 Preserve me, O God: for in thee do I put my trust.
2 O my soul, thou hast said unto the Lord, Thou art my Lord: my goodness extendeth [does not reach to God] not to thee; 3 But to the saints that are in the earth, and to the excellent, in whom is all my delight.
Seeking out knowledge of false gods and the teachings of the heathen is an abomination to the Great God, and is spiritual adultery against the espoused husband of our calling. those who do this shall be confounded and made ashamed.
4 Their sorrows shall be multiplied that hasten after another god: their drink offerings of blood [false teachings bring death] will I not offer, nor take up their names into my lips.
Let the children stay upon their Father in heaven and on our espoused Husband, our Beloved.
5 The Lord is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: thou [God] maintainest my lot.
6 The lines [borders] are fallen unto me in pleasant places; yea, I have a goodly heritage.7 I will bless the Lord, who hath given me counsel: my reins [kidneys, symbolic of sensitivity to God] also instruct me in the night seasons [the times of the Festivals].
8 I have set the Lord always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.
9 Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope.
10 For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.
11 Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.
1 Hear the right, O Lord, attend unto my cry, give ear unto my prayer, that goeth not out of feigned lips. 2 Let my sentence come forth from thy presence; let thine eyes behold the things that are equal.
3 Thou hast proved mine heart; thou hast visited me in the night; thou hast tried me, and shalt find nothing [no evil]; I am purposed that my mouth shall not transgress.
4 Concerning the works of men, by the word of thy lips I have kept me [myself] from the paths of the destroyer.
5 Hold up my goings in thy paths, that my footsteps slip not.
6 I have called upon thee, for thou wilt hear me, O God: incline thine ear unto me, and hear my speech.
7 Shew thy marvellous lovingkindness, O thou that savest by thy right hand them which put their trust in thee from those that rise up against them.
8 Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of thy wings, 9 From the wicked that oppress me, from my deadly enemies, who compass me about.
10 They [the wicked] are inclosed in their own fat: with their mouth they speak proudly. 11 They have now compassed us in our steps: they have set their eyes bowing down to the earth; 12 Like as a lion that is greedy of his prey, and as it were a young lion lurking in secret places. Waiting tpo pounce upon the faithful to God.
13 Arise, O Lord, disappoint him, cast him down: deliver my soul from the wicked, which is thy sword:
14 From men which are thy hand, O Lord, from men of the world, which have their portion in this life, and whose belly thou fillest with thy hid treasure: they are full of children, and leave the rest of their substance to their babes.
The righteous are not to seek the riches of this world; they are to be satisfied with the acceptance of Christ. the joy of the zealous is to see the coming of Christ and righteousness spread like a flood over all humanity.
15 As for me, I will behold thy face in righteousness: I shall be satisfied, when I awake [from death], [I shall be satisfied with seeing God's appearance] with thy likeness.
