Psalms Part VII

Psalms Part VII

     Finally we have the very last posting for the Book of Psalms!!! Enjoy!!!

1. Psalm 83:15-18
     15 so pursue them with your tempest and terrify them with your storm.

     16 Cover their faces with shame, Lordso that they will seek your name.

     17 May they ever be ashamed and dismayed; may they perish in disgrace.

     18 Let them know that you, whose name is the Lord— that you alone are the Most High over all the earth.

     1. Pursue and terrify and bring to shame so that the enemy will seek the name of the Lord? Why? Is that how the Lord/God really wants people to seek Him out?

     2. Where is the truth of spiritual freedom if someone is seeking the Lord/God out of shame and terror?

     3. Is seeking the Lord/God out of shame and terror truly seeking out God/the Lord from personal choice, or is it more of an arm-twisting technique employed by the Great Divine to push man towards choosing what God/the Lord wants for man?

     4. If God/the Lord loves everyone and wants everyone to come to Him and His mighty love, why in the hell would someone make a prayer or song to God/the Lord where they ask the Lord that those against them perish in disgrace?

     5. If God/the Lord is so freaking good to begin with and so ever-present and so obvious then why don't people automatically gravitate to Him? Wouldn't the ultimate mighty-ness of the power and love of God/the Lord supersede any kind of negative thinking of man that would stand in the way of man seeking out the ultimate in truth and love?

     6. If God/the Lord is all-powerful how is it that ANYTHING could blind a man in any way and keep him from seeking out God? Why would man even need to seek out God/the Lord in the first place if God/the Lord is already everywhere and thus by nature everywhere where man is?

2. Psalm 85:7
     7 Show us your unfailing love, Lordand grant us your salvation.

     1. Okay, I have a problem with this verse, right? Show us your unfailing love? Do you see the problem here? If God's love is unfailing and if God is the ultimate in power in the universe then the unfailing love of God/the Lord would be apparent to man, correct? 

     2. There would not be the need to show man anything in regards to the Lord/God if the power of God/the Lord is above all and everything, right? Would not all and everything include the mind and the thinking and the actions of mere men? If such is the case, it does not matter what is in the heart of man or the mind of man since man cannot be greater than God/the Lord, right? 

     3. If the power of God/the Lord and His love and authority are so great then NOTHING conceived of by man can block it or stop it or remove it or hide it...because if such happens then that means the power of God/the Lord is being blocked and He isn't so awfully powerful after all, right?

3. Psalm 85:12
     12 The Lord will indeed give what is good, and our land will yield its harvest.

     1. If the Lord/God is everywhere at all times (ever-present, Omni-Present) and if what is 'good' is the inherent nature of the Lord/God, how can the Lord/God give what is good when what is good is already there? You can't give what is already present, right?

4. Psalm 86:11
     11 Teach me your way, Lordthat I may rely on your faithfulness; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear your name.

     1. Why would you want the people that follow you to fear you? Isn't that kind of like living in a Communist nation? Seriously. People following the Lord are constantly living in fear of every friggin' thing proceeding from God. WTF, right? 

     2. Don't true leaders lead/govern from compassion and love? 

     3. Do you think that fear is part of true leadership?

5. Psalm 86:17
     17 Give me a sign of your goodness, that my enemies may see it and be put to shame, for you, Lord, have helped me and comforted me.

     1. First of all, why do you want to put your enemies to shame? Don't you want them to join you and become part of you? Would you want your enemies to shame you?

     2. Wouldn't you want to give your enemies guidance to what is good and right and just? Would you simply try to guide them and not shame them? 

     3. There is a difference in getting people to follow by shaming them and filling them with fear as opposed to allowing them to follow out of devotion and love. Shame and fear imply that brainwashing is being utilized. Does it make sense to get people to follow by shaming them?

6. Psalm 89:3-4
     3 You said, “I have made a covenant with my chosen one, I have sworn to David my servant,

     4 ‘I will establish your line forever and make your throne firm through all generations.’ ”

     1. Why is David a servant if he is a king? The Lord's servant? Does not a king serve his people and the king has his own servants?

     2. If David's line was so ever-loving firm why are there people who consistently question this supposedly firm line?

     3. Sooo, if the Lord/God is He not then ALSO a servant to US? Wouldn't the Lord/God then be worshiping His own people?

7. Psalm 89:6-7
     6 For who in the skies above can compare with the LordWho is like the Lord among the heavenly beings?

     7 In the council of the holy ones God is greatly feared; he is more awesome than all who surround him.

     1. What do these verses imply? Are there other beings in the sky? Sooo, do you mean WHO as in there ARE NO other heavenly beings?

     2. Who is like the Lord/God among the heavenly beings? Sooo, there ARE other heavenly beings? Aliens?

     3. Sooo, if there ARE NO OTHER heavenly beings WHY is there a council of the holy ones?

     4. WHO makes up the council of the holy ones and WHO put it together?

     5. If the Lord/God is the greatest ever WHY is there this council of the holy ones? WHY would the Lord/God need to be part of any kind of council?

8. Psalm 91:9-12
     9 If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,” and you make the Most High your dwelling,

     10 no harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent.

     11 For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways;

     12 they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.

     1. If the Lord/God is the greatest EVER and is everywhere why in the freaky-doo is He having to send angels to take care of ANYONE if He alone does EVERYTHING?

9. Psalm 95:10-11
     10 For forty years I was angry with that generation; I said, ‘They are a people whose hearts go astray, and they have not known my ways.’

     11 So I declared on oath in my anger, ‘They shall never enter my rest.’ 

     1. God/the Lord was angry for forty goddamn years STRAIGHT?

     2. When did the Lord/God stop being angry, and when did He get angry again?

     3. Has the Lord/God ever heard of anger management and Zoloft or Paxil?

10. Psalm 100:3
     3 Know that the Lord is God. It is he who made us, and we are his we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.

     1. Why can't we be the people of the Lord's pasture and know that we are HERS? Or maybe God is androgynous? 

     2. Do you know what the sheep in a flock are for? Don't you know sheep are always used in some way? Whether it is for wool or for milk or for meat the sheep are always used, right? USED. Sooo, what does God/the Lord use the people of His flock of sheep for?

     3. Why does the Lord/God have to have so much fear in order to fellowship with His sheep? If the Lord's people function like sheep they have no thought, right?

11. Psalm 100:4
     4 Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name.

     1. Give Him thanks for fucking WHAT? War? Pestilence? Violence? Jacked-up laws?

     2. Why does a God who is everywhere need gates? Why does He need courts?

     3. If God is everywhere then people can worship Him anywhere, right? Is not everything supposed to be in, of, for and to God? Wouldn't everything be 'joined' in Him in that sense and then negate the need for courts or anything of the like?

12. Psalm 103:17
     17 But from everlasting to everlasting the Lord’s love is with those who fear him, and his righteousness with their children’s children—

     1. Sooo, would you want your children and their children to fear you so you can show them love and affection?

     2. If you have one everlasting why the fuck would you need another?

     3. Sooo, did the people of God who died during the Holocaust NOT fear God enough and so He let them be murdered? SOMEBODY fucked up on that one, didn't He?

13. Psalm 103:19
     19 The Lord has established his throne in heaven, and his kingdom rules over all.

     1. If the Lord is everywhere why does He need a throne?

     2. If the Lord rules over all and over everything and everyone, why am I sitting here typing on how much He sucks as a ruler?

14. Psalm 103:20-21
     20 Praise the Lord, you his angels, you mighty ones who do his bidding, who obey his word.

     21 Praise the Lord, all his heavenly hosts, you his servants who do his will.

     1. Thank GOD I am a fucking woman because all the angels are male, right? Just kidding. I have a hard time being serious with stupid shit.

     2. If God is all-present and all-powerful why in the hell does He need anyone or anything, whether or not it is angels or heavenly beings, to do His bidding?

15. Psalm 111:4-5
     4 He has caused his wonders to be remembered; the Lord is gracious and compassionate.

     5 He provides food for those who fear him; he remembers his covenant forever.

     1. I do not fear God and yet I still eat. Sooo, how does this fearing God in order to eat work?

     2. The Lord is gracious and compassionate BUT you need to fear Him in order to eat?

     3. Which of His covenants has God decided to remember here?

16. Psalm 116:15
     15 Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his faithful servants.

     1. WTF? What are the servants of the Lord gaining when they die? Everlasting life? This totally sounds like something that the terrorists would cling to in order to justify their dastardly deeds, right?

     2. Sooo, if I am not a faithful servant of God I have a pretty good chance of living, right?

17. Psalm 141:5
     5 Let a righteous man strike me—that is a kindness; let him rebuke me—that is oil on my head. My head will not refuse it, for my prayer will still be against the deeds of evildoers.

     1. A righteous man would not strike another, would he?

18. Psalm 150:6
     6 Let everything that has breath praise the LordPraise the Lord.

     1. Sooo, do the demons and the aliens and the Nephilim praise the Lord?
