Psalms 23:4 is by far my most favorite bible verse of the book of Psalms.

If one can not buy or sell without the 666 mark then we shall know what it is.

Who knows if the Gov makes it so you can not buy or sell with out a vaccine?

Revelation 13:17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

I do not want a vaccine with mercury used as a preservative and green monkey kidney cells or aborted baby tissue injected into my body.


Jesse's comment on 2020-05-15 13:03:11:

Mike, the answer to your question would be no. Getting a vaccine is not the same as taking the mark of the beast. If the person who's giving the vaccine tells you that you need to make yourself an image of the beast and worship it, I would not take the vaccine. Getting a vaccine is not the unpardonable sin as Bob mentions and gives an excellent description of. Please know that a believer who has been born of God's Spirit will never take that mark anyways. And as far as forcing the vaccine on everyone, that goes against people's constitutional rights as American citizens. There would have to be some major changes in order to force a vaccine on everyone. You have nothing to worry about if you are in Christ and Christ is in you!


Mike's comment on 2020-05-15 08:54:04:

Is this vaccination the same thing as the market the beast I read your your article and it brings to mind the Mark of the beast similar to the Social Security card you can't work by seller trade without it so that's unforgivable sin would be the Mark of the beast am I wrong or am I or am I correct please advise

Revelations talks about the mark of the beast and the unforgivable sin. My thoughts (in these days of lies and deceit) and with movies and media, we are bombarded with genetic upgrades, movies like "species" and "avatar" Etc, Etc constantly glorifying this idea that science can give us a DNA upgrade, making us healthier, smarter, faster, stronger, etc. now with this "so called" covid pandemic we are facing mandatory vaccinations! The new vaccine coming is a cdte nanotechnology metal mesh vaccination cdte is the exact same thing as that the solar panels are made out of the interaction between the sun and the cdte is what creates the power to solar panels cdte inside the human body literally attaches itself to all body tissues cells DNA and RNA it literally adds another chromazone to a human body's DNA! This sounds frightening (as it should) but I very seriously believe by changing the genetic code of Gods temple (our bodies) we have committed the irreversible and unforgivable sin.

Psalm 23:4-6 Yea, though I walk through the valley of death

(maybe), I will fear no evil; for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. 6: Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. However, one needs to be in no hurry to leave your family and friends behind! Get well Mike!!! Hal

Staff and rod to fight off the wolves I assume?


ilikelight's comment on 2015-05-23 17:57:57:

If then no staff..if then no rod..all of my days..are set before trial or even all they of the world would be set against ...for he who is in greater..than than this world..and if i live..ill life to love..another day..if i die..greater is he...for death is overcome..and youll be born again. and this by no means a easy world but by the light of holy shines such a light unto You ..and we boldly go.. to carry that light.. because its the only thing that will get you through. its from where you are from and walks with you.. its who sent Jesus.. and from where the wind cometh.. and you are greater..even more than all the things made by man..because you are the light and jewel And a temple.. and home of the holy spirit.. for ever..

Shermaan's comment on 2015-01-21 21:27:24:

Shadow of death mean god are with you if you belief in him not some time but all the time.


all4agape's comment on 2015-01-14 04:51:14:

Disagree with the commentary "Thy rod and thy staff - Two words denoting the same thing, and both designing God 's pastoral care over him ", as a rod is used for discipline, safety, and staff for comfort, strength and leadership. However, the notion of God 's pastoral care is accurate.


Mary Ann's comment on 2014-12-27 20:55:36:

I think that there is a ' 'real ' ' Valley of the Shadow of Death in that area. It would make the Bible even MORE believable, more archeologically correct.


Nare komape's comment on 2014-12-22 09:46:41:

The valley is the low parts of the landscape. This are low moment of our life 's path and not only low but death has cast its shadow over this low moments. The imagery here is of death standing between light and the valley and the natural inclination is to cause fear and be paralysed.


carilyn's comment on 2014-12-05 21:05:51:

Psalms 23 4 were the first verse my parents read to us every night before bed.


judy's comment on 2014-09-07 20:31:14:

Whenever I 'm afraid I repeat the Lord has not given us the spirit of fear but of power and of love and of a sound mind.I now have a better understanding of Psalms23 Jesus is so comforting and when you call his name you get stronger and stronger each time it release fear will never stop loving him in Jesus name amen.


kola suleiman's comment on 2014-08-31 15:59:02:

David went through alot in life and all that saved him was the spirit of God. And that is why anytime i read that chapter of the psalms i feel relived in my innermost man. God keeps speaking through His word daily and we must be at alart to hear Him. So,we should always allow that chapter of the psalmits to do the work and we should go sleep assured . To God be thou glory forever more.


Duane's comment on 2014-08-29 20:09:35:

I have felt my whole life that we are spirit beings having a temporary and fleeting physical experience This Psalm has always allowed me to feel safe and protected even in life 's dangerous circumstances.


KB's comment on 2014-07-30 10:26:23:

If God can be for us, what and who can be against us?? Nothing to fear! Move on with your life!


Olivia madu's comment on 2014-05-06 02:47:11:

This verse ps 23 4 . Teachs me alot. It tells me that nothing can ever harm me because my lord my good Sherpherd has a rod and a staff to protect me so even when trials come because walking through the valley tells us trials and hard times will come but God will always be there to see us through all we need to do is trust and obey Him
