mandino_ #psalm 111 #150daypsalmchallenge commentary from easyenglish.info In verse 1, "*Hallelujah" is a Hebrew word. It means "say that the *LORD is very great". Many people do not translate it, but use the Hebrew word. The *LORD is the *covenant name of God. When two people (or groups of people) agree we call it a *covenant (or an agreement). In this *covenant: · God agrees to love his people and give them help; if · God’s people are his servants and love and obey him.
The *psalmist writes about the *covenant in verses 5 and 9.
There are 6 other interesting words in this psalm: · "with all my *heart" in verse 1. This is a special way that the *Jews (and many English people) say "as well as I can". Note that the *psalmist says he will do it "where his people meet together".
For him, that was the *temple (or God’s house) in Jerusalem. For Christians it is in Church, or where they meet other Christians. · "understand that he is a king" in verse 3. When we understand that God is the greatest king in *heaven or earth, we honour him. This means that we are very polite to him. We are even a bit afraid of him. This is a special "being afraid" that Christians call "awe". It means that we know that God is much more powerful than we are. #JESUS #christ #christian #christianbusiness

mandino_ #psalm 110 #150daypsalmchallenge from easyenglish.info This is a very old psalm. Today, Bible students are not sure what many of the verses really mean. But it is a very important psalm. Jesus repeated part of it just before his enemies killed him. He was talking to the Pharisees, who were *Jewish leaders. He asked them what they thought about the Christ. Christ is the Greek word for *messiah. *Messiah is the Hebrew word for "anointed". Anointed means "someone with oil poured over them". The oil came from plants called olives. It was not the oil that we use in our cars. The *Jews anointed men when they made them kings. So "Christ" really means a king that someone has anointed.
When David wrote the psalm, he was the king. He was anointed, or the *messiah. But he said, "The *LORD said to my *Lord". The two words (*LORD and *Lord) do not mean the same. *LORD is a name for God. It is the name only his servants really use. It is the "*covenant-name". A *covenant is when two people (or groups of people) agree. Here the two are God (the *LORD) and his people (the *Jews). This *LORD (or God) said to David’s *Lord, "Sit on the right of me". Who was David’s *Lord? This Hebrew word means "master", or "someone with authority". It is another word for God!
In Matthew 22:43 we read "Why then did David, in his spirit, call him *Lord?" What does "in his spirit" mean? The spirit is the part of a person that lives after their body dies. It is the part of a person that talks to God. So here, David was talking to God. He was calling him, "*Lord". So everything in the psalm is about the *Lord, or God. It is not about David. This is very important in verse 4. It means that God is "always a *priest, as Melchizedek was".
A *priest in the *Old Testament was someone that was God’s servant in the *temple (house of God) in Jerusalem. There were many *priests in the *temple. But that was only a picture of what was going to happen! In the *New Testament there was one great *priest. His name was Jesus. But he was not a *priest as the *Jews were *priests. He did not give dead animals to God. He gave himself! And he was not as the *Jewish *priests, he was as Melchizedek! #JESUS #christ

mandino_ #psalm 109 #150daypsalmchallenge commentary from Christnotes.org The psalmist takes God's comforts to himself, but in a very humble manner. He was troubled in mind. His body was wasted, and almost worn away. But it is better to have leanness in the body, while the soul prospers and is in health, than to have leanness in the soul, while the body is feasted. He was ridiculed and reproached by his enemies. But if God bless us, we need not care who curses us; for how can they curse whom God has not cursed; nay, whom he has blessed? He pleads God's glory, and the honour of his name. Save me, not according to my merit, for I pretend to none, but according to thy-mercy. He concludes with the joy of faith, in assurance that his present conflicts would end in triumphs. Let all that suffer according to the will of God, commit the keeping of their souls to him. Jesus, unjustly put to death, and now risen again, is an Advocate and Intercessor for his people, ever ready to appear on their behalf against a corrupt world, and the great accuser. #jesus #christ #christian #church #christianmemes #christianbusiness #changeinthesprings 2w

mandino_ #psalm 108 #150daypsalmchallenge commentary from easyenglish.info In verse 10, David is speaking again. The strong city was the capital of Edom, Petra. David put Joab as leader of the army that went to fight Edom. David stayed with the other part of the army in Syria. In verse 11, "Will you really not go with our armies?" means "I do hope that you WILL go with our armies". In verse 12, David learned a lesson that we must all learn. "Help from men is of no value". It is of value if God sends the men or women to give help. But God must send them. God works through men and women to help his people. In the words of verse 6, he uses his right hand to answer us. His right hand could be anybody! In verse 12, "walk all over our enemies" is "trample over our enemies" in Hebrew. "Trample" means putting our feet down hard when we walk. Hebrew is the language that the *Jews spoke. #jesus #christ #christian #church #christianmemes #christianbusiness 3w

mandino_ #psalm 107 #150daypsalmchallenge commentary from easyenglish.info Verse 20: "He sent his word" can mean two things: · God spoke to them and healed them (or made them well again); · God sent one of his servants to heal them (make them well again).
The *Jews believed that God sent a special servant from *Heaven. We call these servants *angels.
Heaven is the home of God. In Hebrew, "death" is "the pit". This was a name for a place in *Sheol. The *Jews believed that they went to *Sheol when they died. The pit was a very bad part of *Sheol. People never came out from it. #jesus #christ #christian #christianmemes #christianbusiness

mandino_ #106 #150daypsalmchallenge commentary from christnotes.org (Read Psalm 106:1-5)
None of our sins or sufferings should prevent our ascribing glory and praise to the Lord. The more unworthy we are, the more is his kindness to be admired. And those who depend on the Redeemer's righteousness will endeavour to copy his example, and by word and deed to show forth his praise. God's people have reason to be cheerful people; and need not envy the children of men their pleasure or pride. #christ #jesus #christian #christianmemes #christianbusiness

mandino_ What is the new life?
The old life is the life we were born into. The life of Adam, Genesis 3:23 says that we were disconnected from God. Being disconnected from God causes us to live a life in darkness, alienated from God, a life of the flesh, a life of self-centeredness.
Jesus says that unless one is born again, we cannot see the kingdom of God. We cannot see the spirit realm, we cannot see what God sees. This is the new life that Jesus promises. The promise to be reconnected to God, to live a life of the spirit. God has authorized us with POWER AND AUTHORITY in our new life. In our old life all we had to rely on is what the world taught us.
This Resurrection Day, remember why Jesus died on the cross. To give you a new life, a new beginning. To WALK WITH GOD. All it takes is faith that he died and rose again with all power in his hands. ARE YOU LIVING THE NEW LIFE?

  •   lazyboi954 congrats bro 4w
  •   ronmcoleman @mandino_ everyday should be a celebration of resurrection day. The new life I like to call the extended life plan. With God we are guaranteed eternal life. Without him is (eternal) death. This is a great reminder. God has given us this great power and authority and it never fails. He has called us to be strong and courageous because he is with us at all times. God bless my brother. 4w

mandino_ #psalm 105 #150daypsalmchallenge commentary from christnotes.com (Read Psalm 105:1-7)
Our devotion is here stirred up, that we may stir up ourselves to praise God. Seek his strength; that is, his grace; the strength of his Spirit to work in us that which is good, which we cannot do but by strength derived from him, for which he will be sought. Seek to have his favour to eternity, therefore continue seeking it while living in this world; for he will not only be found, but he will reward those that diligently seek him. #jesus #christ #christian #church #christianmemes #christianbusiness

mandino_ #psalm 104 #150daypsalmchallenge commentary from christnotes.org (Read Psalm 104:19-30)
We are to praise and magnify God for the constant succession of day and night. And see how those are like to the wild beasts, who wait for the twilight, and have fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness. Does God listen to the language of mere nature, even in ravenous creatures, and shall he not much more interpret favourably the language of grace in his own people, though weak and broken groanings which cannot be uttered? There is the work of every day, which is to be done in its day, which man must apply to every morning, and which he must continue in till evening; it will be time enough to rest when the night comes, in which no man can work. The psalmist wonders at the works of God. The works of art, the more closely they are looked upon, the more rough they appear; the works of nature appear more fine and exact. They are all made in wisdom, for they all answer the end they were designed to serve. Every spring is an emblem of the resurrection, when a new world rises, as it were, out of the ruins of the old one. But man alone lives beyond death. When the Lord takes away his breath, his soul enters on another state, and his body will be raised, either to glory or to misery. May the Lord send forth his Spirit, and new-create our souls to holiness. #jesus #christ #church #christian #christianmemes #christianbusiness
