Psalm 59.

Fierce opposition may be something in this country that we are not normally accustomed to but one has to ask why in light of 2 Timothy 3:12-17; John 15:18-21; 2 Corinthians 11:26 etc.

Perhaps I made this statement earlier in the Psalms discussion; but we need to distinguish between unconditional love and the fact that "enemies" still exist. Romans 5:10 and apparently 29 other verses show that indeed we all are enemies of God prior to our conversion; hence all unregenerate remain in that state.

There is something to be said for the O.T. times when the mindset was more "an eye for an eye"(Exodus 21:24). In terms of today; Christ demonstrated no personal condemnation for a particular individual; but He certainly spent chapters excoriating the Pharisees and others which caused multiple attempts at His life along the constant persecution.

Again as I stated in other Psalms regarding David's multiple hiding periods from Saul he showed respect for him by preserving his life multiple times when he could have ended it; and also he mourned over his death when the Lord finally made Saul reap what he sowed. When someone tries to kill you 21 times as Saul was said to do (not to mention other enemies of his); then we can understand a desire to see justice. Christ alluded to judgment with unbelief among the places that had seen mighty works such as Matthew 11:21 (the "woe to you" term was also used with the Pharisees).

Individual judgment to come or the fate of nations is not something we should gloss over. We as watchmen are responsible to sound the alarm (Isaiah 52:8 and other verses in Jeremiah; etc). In evangelism warning of a national fate seems to be generally disregarded as opposed to warning individuals as to the wrath to come. I can't see studying how Christ preached that it can be ignored. We can study scripture and history to see how Isaiah and Jeremiah for instance were martyred for such messages.

Let us preach truth in love.

David's call for deliverance from Saul. My salvation is from above. Not from man, or anything else but the Lord Jesus.

v17 "Unto thee, O my strength, will I sing: for God is my defence, and the God of my mercy."

Peace and comfort is a benefit I receive only from you. Let me be content in you. Thank you Lord. Make me to be satisfied only from your hand.

Job 19:25 "For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth:"

Let us all stand firm in the Words of the Lord, the time draws near for our redemption. September 25, 2021
