Philip Christian Parks's Psalms Chapter 18 comment on 6/19/2021, 8:09pm...

Ps. 18:6 = Here, the term "temple" speaks of GOD's Heavenly, Holy, Palatial Dwelling Place. The same Hebrew word ("heykal"; pro-nounced "hay-KAWL") also translates into "palace" fifteen times in the Old Testament.

When the word "temple" identifies a literal temple building, certain distinguishing verbal indicators are used such as "the temple of The LORD" or the designation "holy temple". Often the use of the definite article "the" serves the same purpose to refer to the actual temple. If the Scripture provides a geographical location such as "Jerusalem" or "Babylon" (e.g. Ezra 5:14), an actual temple structure is meant.


Marriage between a Believer and Unbeliever's Psalms Chapter 18 comment on 3/29/2021, 1:58am...

1 Corinthians 7:14

The children of believing parents are "holy," meaning "set apart." God considers such a child to be "clean." That does not mean "sinless," but they are still legally clean in His sight. They are therefore acceptable in His presence and have the opportunity to have true success in life as a result. They have the chance to believe God, to cast their lot with Him, and to be spared the horror of having to face many of the evils in this world.

But, just as parents can lose their sanctification, so children who are set apart can also lose their status. Law plays no favorites. It does not care whether one is male or female, or thirteen, nineteen, or ninety-three. If a ninety-three year old male jumps off the 80th floor of the Empire State Building, which direction will he go? What if a 16-year old girl does the same thing? The law of gravity does not play favorites.

Law does not care what one's race, sex, or age are. If parents who are sanctified break the laws of God persistently, they will lose their sanctification. If a seventeen-year-old does the same thing, even though his parents are sanctified and a child is held to be clean because of God's judgment, he can lose his too.

For a child who is sanctified, even though unconverted, there is still a great deal that he will be held accountable for. "To whom much is given, much is also required." Jesus does not say that this only applies to converted parents.

The child's sanctification gives him the advantage of access to God. Because of that access, he has the guidance of God available to him, and from that guidance he can form a proper vision of what he wants to do with his life (Proverbs 29:18). This allows him to see what he wants to do in terms of conduct-what he wants to pursue, the way he wants to do work, the attitude he has toward other people, parents, neighbors, fellow-employees, etc.

Also read through Leviticus 26 and Deuteronomy 28: blessings and curses regarding obedience
