What I love about him, I think it is the same reason why most of us do. He really opens up to God and speaks his mind from his heart to our wonderful Creator. When he is angry he tells God all about it, and when he is full of praise he does the same. David is so honest with God. When David is having troubles with his enemies he comes to God directly and spells out his troubled heart. If his enemies refuses to give up their evil ways, he then prays that God will show them up so that they may learn to give reverence to God Almighty. David is fully aware that the enemies of God will suffer the consequences of their actions in hell fire if they do not.
Jesus teachers us to turn the other check, not to hate our enemies and when we obey Him in all things we will receive His peace. We still must pray that the earth is cleanse of all that is evil, it is after all God’s Holy Will. If we read our bibles we will know the time of God’s mercy is running out and we can see time after time again God gives His people only so long to repent and when we refuse, we can see what becomes of Israel when they did not. They were taken over by their enemies. This is going to happen to Christians very soon all over the world, it is already started to happen years ago, as we all know. A time will come very shortly when God will judge the earth and by no means God is happy about it. I have seen Him cry over it. God has told many prophets that He is going to take up His faithful Brides before it really gets bad, but we will still experience great suffering before the rapture.
I Love the Way Passion Version Expresses the Psalms
Psalm 109 verse 17-20.
Since he enjoyed cursing them, may all his curses now come raining back on him, until it all overwhelms him with misfortune! Since he refused to bless others, God, withhold every single blessings from him! Bitterness, such vile vindictiveness, was upon everything he did. Cursing was his lifestyle. So smother him now with his own curses as his just reward. This will be the Lord’s punishment upon him and all my lying accusers who speak evil against me.
If you read David he is always first loving and if the evil persists then he calls on God for justice not from hatred, but out of the love for God and His Righteousness. Sometimes the only way we learn to stop doing evil, is to receive a little of our own medicine. And I see David often will say things like ‘may they fall into their own trap.’ I do it often myself so that they may learn and I ask God that Satan’s plans of evil will backfire so instead of doing harm, peoples eyes would be open and they see clearly what is going on and therefore convert and become true followers of Christ instead. It gets confusing sometimes, we are called to love our enemies and I believe I do, but there is no way I believe we should just keep allowing evil to grow and destroy what God created out of love to continue. God didn’t call us to be doormats. I pray for my enemies to repent and convert, because they will go to hell if they keep serving evil and that is something I do not want anybody to suffer. Even though we all deserve it, it is for ever and we should pray for our enemies that light dawns on them and they will be able to see that they are their worst enemy, not God or another person they consider to be.
Psalms 74:19 aren’t we your beloved dove that praises you? Protect us from these wild beasts who want to harm us. Don’t leave us as lambs among wolves! You can’t abandon us after all we’ve been through! Remember your promises to us, for darkness covers the land, giving the violent ones a hiding place. Don’t let these insults continue. Can’t you see that we are your downtrodden and oppressed people? Make the poor and needy into a choir of praise to you!
Look At Israel’s History
Once again look at Israel’s history. After a time of the enemy take over, the Israelites repented deeply and then turned back to God with all their hearts and then God was with them again and they once again became victorious over their enemies and God blessed them. In the Old Testament is says If you obey God you will be blessed and if you disobey God you will be cursed. Very simple guidelines to follow. When we at war with Satan and if we stay close to God, great victories will be seen. The greater the challengers, greater the reward. Because God does not abandon us. Look at St. Paul, he shared the suffering of the cross in so many ways and because he did, God blessed him in so many ways spiritually. He is a great example for others who suffer and he was blessed with so much insight into the ways of God. If he had not suffered so much for God, God would not have blessed him so handsomely as He did. My saying that I used for myself is ‘first the Crucifixion and then the Resurrection.’ Most Christian like to share Jesus Resurrection without first dying to self, which is the crucifixion. If we don’t die to ourselves we cannot be made new. We cannot take on the nature of Christ. We have to die of the love of the world and all that it holds and of the desires of our flesh. If we don’t we are not free to love God with All our hearts and with All our minds and with All our strengths. We have to be purified by fire, which are the crosses we experience in life. We have to walk the walk. If we just talk about it and not do the things Jesus tells us to do we will miss the boat.
