God Bless His (Psalm 85 )

Lord, You have gracious to Your land. Your people may rejoice in He will speak peace to His and to His saints. that glory may in our land. Truth shall out of the earth, and righteousness shall down from Heaven. Jehovah will give and our land shall yield its (from Psalm ch85)

God America, land that I stand beside her, and her thru the night with a from above the opening from America’s national

Since 9/11 people been displaying flags in front yards and stickers on vehicles, proclaiming, God bless During the recent State of the speech, honor is bestowed parents who lost a son in Iraq, the mother and an Iraqi lady the dead son’s dog tag getting in the Iraqi woman’s sleeve, a moment symbolizing three united in the cause of sacrifice and while the congressional chamber forth with prolonged and many Americans feel a of just-ness to our existence as a nation, and the of our purposes globally. As a citizenry we are by our leaders to feel patriotic in our nation. People in churches god for the great nation, and request his blessing upon us. We are told by our our educators, our psychologist/counselors and pastors we are a good people; and while it is not there is an -assumption- that we are of blessings from deity. deity may be to them. that’s topic, not the subject of this

After all, isn’t what we also just in the opening passage of Scripture, from the Psalms? If it is in the Bible, it be so! Right?


Before we go any here, please notice the opening passage, as quoted, is a of -excerpts- from Psalm Also, notice how I have spoken of god and deity in the lower-case. we progress further, please get our Bible and read the entire .

Now that you’ve done

Let us consider this chapter IN Let us see whether there is Scriptural to my opening paragraph of lavished and assumptions of God’s blessings. Is such a great nation? Is it Is it righteous? Is it deserving of God’s and prosperity? Can it appropriate unto what Israel did?

is the context? Israel had been in and now the Psalm opens, You have back the captivity of Jacob Israel has sinned, they taken into captivity, repented and called out to God, and God His grace to them. Notice the refers to Jacob (supplanter/heel), not (the Mighty God prevails). the nation was in rebellion it was typically to as Jacob; when they in a place of obedience and blessing,

All those things of ‘blessing’ I (out-of-context) at the top are actually in the context God has forgiven their iniquity; sin has been covered (vs2) It is not so that God is lavishing blessing them, but that He has withdrawn His and has drawn back from His (vs3)

Another thing I out was Israel’s prayer to restore us and salvation (vs4); the same way prayed in repentance from the whale, Salvation is from (Jon2:9)

What is the -basis- for rejoicing? What is the -context- of praise? That God would us again. (vs6) Praise is not of: Look at us! See how -wonderful- we are! but We have sinned, we have and God’s mercy has now restored us. You this was the very basis and of their worship. They did not the stupid worship songs we where they would Lord I’ve come to (see how wonderful I am, for taking off my busy schedule to give of it to God!) but rather: Oh, give unto Jehovah, for He is good; for His is eternal. (1Ch16:34) -Mercy- that quality of God’s which never fail, keep us from being (La3:22); which when we our sins, He is faithful and just to us our sins, and to cleanse us from all (1Jn1:9) Because we are ‘forgiven’, we can rejoice.

When a people has peace, it is not due to own goodness; as Moses said to Therefore understand that your God is not giving you this land to possess because of righteousness, for you are a stiff-necked people. but because of the wickedness of these (vs5) which God was about to from before Israel.

The God gives the nation is in the context of two 1) Listening to God, and 2) Not returning to

Notice that vs8 begins: I hear what Jehovah the God will speak; and ends: . but let not turn back to folly. peace is sandwiched in between the that a people -listen- to and obey; and don’t revert to the sin and out of which God’s mercy had delivered them.

Salvation is for who fear Him. (vs9) And for all the wisdom that our leaders they have, the truth of the is that: The fear of Jehovah is the of wisdom; a good understanding all those who do His commandments. His praise eternally. (Ps111:10) Today’s worship does so, dressed provocatively and gyrates sensuously to the of demons; but notice that praise is related to the fear of the and the doing of His commandments. But be doers of the and not hearers only, deceiving (Ja1:22) What calls christian today is deceiving assuming that going church and merely ‘hearing’ is but they don’t -do- commands. Thus, because refuse the fear of the Lord, are fools who despise wisdom and (Pr1:7)

We are a nation of lies. Politicians their fingers, put them up to the and whatever way the breezes are blowing, is the direction they pretend to be to get elected. (If you doubt this, your eyes on Hillary whose core beliefs are and hear how her rhetoric has already to shift in the direction of values-based conservatism; perhaps licking her for a chance at the 2008 presidency?) Our system is totally morally whilst swearing to tell the the whole truth, nothing , courtrooms abound in lies. how can such a nation expect mercy? Mercy and truth met together (vs10a) Without (Yes, God, I acknowledge I am a sinner), mercy is not possible. By mercy and grace can only in the environment of honest repentance. and peace have kissed When criminals are released and people imprisoned, there is no What are the things which this nation? Abortion, gay marriage, 10 Commandments, etc. nation, collectively, is on the wrong of all these issues. and, enough, we are also a nation at

Notice that righteousness. down from Heaven the same context as truth. out of the earth (vs11)

And righteousness is by us being in the way of His steps. (vs13) is not paying lip-service to religiosity sitting in the padded pew of a cathedral, but obeying God who prompts, This is the walk in it. (Is30;21)

This claims to be one that proclaims on its In God we trust. Many imagine it to be a nation, full of christians from the Oval Office on Many of its leaders presume to that this nation to God.

When this Israel’s label, the people of your God, what was exhortation to them? Therefore you ‘obey’ the voice of Jehovah God, and do His commandments and His statutes I am commanding you today. (De27:9-10)

blessings upon a nation come when that is OBEDIENT to God, His laws and

Many in America claim we belong to God?

Well. are we -OBEYING- God?

Once pondered the answer to that then consider:

Is God’s upon this nation?

in this nation claim it to be nation. If that were and they want God’s the verdict is clear.

When I up the heavens and there is no rain, or the locusts to devour the land, or pestilence among My people, if My who have been called by My will humble themselves, and and seek My face, and turn their wicked ways, I will hear from the and will forgive their sin and their land. (2Ch7:13-14)
