WE SING REDEMPTION’S SONG! – Part 2.

by BG O’Neal

Note the this comparison challenge: – Read with a friend both Psalm 14 and Psalm 53 simultaneously in the “KJV.” There is the utmost importance of God saying something twice. In the Hebraic, having double letters in your name means you are very important to God! Jesus said – Verily, verily I say unto you! It was Word Up! Listen to me! I have something very important to say to you!

My question is this: What kind of shape are you in spiritually speaking? Why is it that Zion, the church, is at ease? We listen and or say as much slang as we desire and dress as scantly as we can, yet proclaim godliness! We are to let our moderation be known in “all things!” There’s no way of skirting this command! Jesus Christ is Lord of all, this is our proclamation!

When we refuse to listen to God’s instructions and do things our way, are we not denying the very existence of God? You know, the one who came to us as a babe in a manger! Jesus says the words he speaks are spirit and they are life. This is our desire as sold (souled) out to Christ that we may be proper ambassadors,

Represent him well! How poor we are! The poor always have the gospel preached unto them says our Lord! The question is, how humble are we? We bow down! We reverence him! Worthy is the Lamb! He’s so Holy! Holy Holy Holy! How I wish that the world’s deliverance and salvation would arise in and from the church! Dare to be different! Read that again! Stand for something or fall for anything! Help us oh Lord, we need you!!!

“Only the withering soul would say to himself, “There is no God.” Anyone who thinks like this is corrupt and callous, devoid of what is good. Yahweh looks down in love, looking over all of Adam’s sons and daughters. He’s looking to see if there is anyone who acts wisely, any who are searching for God and wanting to please him.

But everyone has wandered astray, walking stubbornly toward evil. Not one is good; he can’t even find one. They live in luxury while exploiting my people! Won’t these workers of wickedness ever learn? They don’t ever think of praying to God. But look at them now, in panic, trembling with terror.

Commentary: When I first started writing these blogs, I thought they would all present sweet as pie. I am finding this is not always the case. The Lord desires truth in the inward parts. Truth sets us free although it does challenge us! We are not our own! We are bought with a price, the precious blood 🩸 of Jesus Christ! Worthy is the Lamb! I have been Redeemed! Please enjoy the listen!

NOW! MORE THAN EVER!

God, we live in a world that tells us deny Jesus Christ our Savior. They try to entrap us with every evil invention. They go to any means of broadcasting their lies. The pressure is so great it’s hard to breathe and be comfortable. We need a fresh wind of revival in our spirits, oh God! May songs of joy burst from our lips. We need you Lord, now, more than ever!

by BG O’Neal

“How long, O Lord? Will You forget me forever? How long will You hide Your face from me? How long shall I take counsel in my soul, Having sorrow in my heart all the day? How long will my enemy be exalted over me? Consider and answer me, O Lord my God; Enlighten my eyes, or I will sleep the sleep of death, And my enemy will say, “I have overcome him,” And my adversaries will rejoice when I am shaken. But I have trusted in Your lovingkindness; My heart shall rejoice in Your salvation. I will sing to the Lord, Because He has dealt bountifully with me.”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭13‬:‭1‬-‭6‬ ‭NASB1995‬‬

SMOOTH TALKERS!

by BG O’Neal

God help us to live godly lives.

May we maintain integrity. We live in a time when lying is so popular, flattery and deceit as well. Where are the honorable people? Anyway, it’s vain to trust in man so trust in God’s words. His words are pure and sparkle like a precious jewel! You can rely on His faithfulness. He’s a good, good Father! His word is truth!

Please give a listen to “May The Words Of My Mouth.”

“DANNY” & “DEBBIE” DOWNERS!

I said Stop It! I’m not listening to you!

by BG O’Neal

If I proclaim my faith is in the Lord, why would I cause others to fear with my words! Just because you are a fearmonger does not mean they accept your actions. Those who are strong in faith will negate your negativity. You may mean well but your kind of throw outs are a disadvantage rather than helpful.

We should try our best to not bring others down with us! And if you can’t help others see the bad influence their negativity reflects then cut your ties! You gotta know when to hold them! You gotta know when to fold them! Relationships that is!!! I believe God will grant you a better friend and stronger relationships!

Others may constantly ignore you! Don’t waste your time bugging them with unwanted texts and phone calls. They have already told you they don’t need you! Cut it off! You say, I can’t! Yes you can! It’s just hard that’s all. Move forward! Walk in peace! Don’t ever allow negative people say so in your life.

Don’t allow anyone to put words in your mouth! Learn to speak up for yourself! Do listen to sound counsel! Always!!! It will show itself kind and considerate! Please don’t fret and worry over the downers around you and their actions. Remember, God the LORD is judge over all. He will execute righteousness! Look to Him!

“My faith shelters my soul continually in Yahweh. Why would you say to me: “Run away while you can! Fly away like a bird to hide in the mountains for safety. For your enemies have prepared a trap for you! Can’t you see them hiding in their place of darkness and shadows?

They’re set against all those who live upright lives. What can the righteous accomplish when truth’s pillars are destroyed and law and order collapse?” Yet Yahweh is never shaken — he is still found in his temple of holiness, reigning as King Yahweh over all. He closely watches and examines everything man does.

With a glance, his eyes examine every heart, for his heavenly rule will prevail over all. Yahweh tests both the righteous and the wicked. God’s very soul detests lovers of violence. He will rain down upon them judgment for their sins. A scorching wind will be their lot in life. But remember this:

“How long will you forget me, Lord? Forever? How long will you hide from me? How long must I worry and feel sad in my heart all day? How long will my enemy win over me? Lord, look at me. Answer me, my God; tell me, or I will die. Otherwise my enemy will say, “I have won!” Those against me will rejoice that I’ve been defeated. I trust in your love. My heart is happy because you saved me. I sing to the Lord because he has taken care of me.”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭13‬:‭1‬-‭6‬ ‭NCV‬‬.

GOD SEES AND HEARS!

I thank you oh Father that you see me! You hear my cries as I seek your face!

by BG O’Neal

You must believe this! It’s how you walk in victory by faith! Still and always by grace through faith! The Hebrew word for eye is Ayin! It implies mental and spiritual facilities which God has. As being spiritual, it refers to Him as a spring or fountain, a source of life. He is the “hayim mayim,” living water! He is our source of life and he beholds us at all times!

“The eyes of the LORD are upon the righteous, And his ears are open unto their cry.” Psalm 34:15 KJV.

Can we now trust him that he watches over his own? We understand the eye is somehow associated with countenance, knowledge, and favor. What this means to us is that He views us from his glory stance. Our God, Yahweh, is the omniscient one, all knowing! He is the one who shows us favor and compassion.

He is El Roi, the God who sees! Now, let’s look at scripture to see what the word declares for our help. It will strengthen our faith as we believe them!

“The eyes of the LORD are in every place, Beholding the evil and the good.” Proverbs 15:3 KJV.

“The eyes of the LORD preserve knowledge, And he overthroweth the words of the transgressor.” Proverbs 22:12 KJV.

He sees and also hears! We have this assurance! Refer to hearing mentioned in the scripture of Psalm 34:15 above. “His eyes are on us and his ears are open!” And, ear relates to uncover the ear to reveal; the receiver of divine revelation! *He who gives revelation is the same one who listens to us when we pray! We reveal our hearts to him in this manner!

We can conclude from these three verses that He is always observant! His knowledge is supreme above all other knowledge. He ever watches over his creation, his children! He is our protector! He is the God who hears, El Shama; however, that is not a proper name. It is what He does!!!

Let us be encouraged from this scripture: “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God [must] believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.” Hebrews 11:6 KJV.

May we keep our vertical relationship in line with God. Seek him fervently! Seek him diligently! Our active spiritual life and depends on it! Your horizon will look better for you! The world will seem brighter! Glory to God! Enjoy this beautiful song below:

SO WILL I BLESS YOU!

by BG O’Neal

“So will I bless You as long as I live; I will lift up my hands in Your name. My soul [my life, my very self] is satisfied as with marrow and fatness, And my mouth offers praises [to You] with joyful lips. When I remember You on my bed, I meditate and thoughtfully focus on You in the night watches, For You have been my help, And in the shadow of Your wings [where I am always protected] I sing for joy. My soul [my life, my very self] clings to You; Your right hand upholds me.” Psalms 63:4-8 The Amplified Bible – AMP.

LORD WE NEED YOU!

Oh God, my God hear my cry!

by BG O’Neal

“Lord, why do you stay so far away? Why do you hide from people in times of trouble? The wicked are proud and make evil plans to hurt the poor, who are caught in their traps and made to suffer. Those greedy people brag about the things they want to get. They curse the Lord and show that they hate him.

The wicked are too proud to ask God for help. He does not fit into their plans. They succeed in everything they do. They don’t understand how you can judge them. They make fun of all their enemies. They say to themselves, “Nothing bad will ever happen to us. We will have our fun and never be punished.”

They are always cursing, lying, and planning evil things to do. They hide just outside the villages, waiting to kill innocent people, always looking for any helpless person they can hurt. They are like lions hiding in the bushes to catch weak and helpless animals. They lay their traps for the poor, who are caught in their nets.

Punish them for the evil they have done, and stop them from doing any more. Lord, you are King forever and ever, so I know you will remove the wicked nations from your land. Lord, you have heard what the poor want. Listen to their prayers, and do what they ask. Protect the orphans and those who have been hurt.

Again and again they hurt people who are already weak and suffering. They say to themselves, “God has forgotten about us. He is not watching. He will never see what we are doing.” Lord, get up and do something. Punish those who are wicked, God. Don’t forget those who are poor and helpless.

The wicked turn against God because they think he will not punish them. But, Lord, you do see the pain and suffering they cause. You see it, so punish them. Those who were left helpless put their trust in you. After all, you are the one who cares for orphans. Break the arms of those who are wicked and evil.

Don’t let powerful people drive us from our land!” Psalms 10:1-18 Easy Read Version – ERV.

YOU RAISE ME UP!

Thank you Lord, for all you’ve done!

by BG O’Neal

“I will give thanks to Yahweh with all my heart; I will recount all Your wondrous deeds. I will be glad and exult in You; I will sing praise to Your name, O Most High. ¶When my enemies turn back, They stumble and perish before You. For You have maintained my justice and my cause; You have sat on the throne judging righteously.

Today, I want to give you thanks oh God for all your goodness! For all you have done! You have blessed my life in so many wonderful ways! I am like one resurrected from the dead. In all my pains and all my sickness and sorrow – you raise me up! Lord, I can’t praise you enough!

Most High God, El Elyon, you sit on the throne judging righteously. You are a just God who has our best interests at heart. How magnificent you are Yahweh. You gave us Yeshua your son for our salvation! How can we ever praise you enough! We can’t!

Yahweh also will be a stronghold for the oppressed, A stronghold in times of distress; Arise, O Yahweh, do not let man prevail; Let the nations be judged before You. Put them in fear, O Yahweh; Let the nations know that they are but men. Selah.” Psalms 9:1-4, 9, 19-20 Legacy Standard Bible – LSB.
