Psalm 54, a degree of irony

God save those who cant save themselves.

My words, your ears.

They that rise against me, do not see the God before me.

He helps the needy, and is with the helpful.

Payback to those who pay with evil.

I freely owe the sacrifices of praise.

Freed to see the bondage of the wicked.

Version Psalm 53

there is no God
you are a fool
currupted

He looks on us
no understandstanding
interrupted

we all turned
no goodness
disrupted

no knowledge
devouring sons of God
abused

afraid of fear
shatterd bones
accused

save and protect
through restoration
excused

Version Psalm 43

Uphold my cause against the land
that holds the wicked unjust man
Pleading

O God that makes me strong
You've left me for so long
Grieving

Lead me with your light and wisdom
Bring me to your holy kingdom
Seeing

Stand before your presence then
shouting out to you, Amen
Kneeling

Questioning my souls unease
hoping in the God who sees
Freeing
once in while they come around, if you watch and wait.

if you close your eyes and listen, your thoughts will be their bait.

a captive audience, an ensamble cast preforms for you at will.

take it in, ponder deep, until you have your fill.

what is their name, and whence they came for you at last to know?

memories, both strong and weak, feel them come and let them go...
Try and see it the way I do. I would show you more, Its true.

I'd lift the vail that covers your eyes. I'd give you light to brighten your skies.

Id turn your darkness from dark to light. I would send in angels to give you sight.

I ask for this and so much more, that peaceful waves caress your shores.

That strength and knowledge would bless your life and restful nights replace sleepless strife.

In asking this I know one thing, that this is what I long to bring, to you today and evermore...know that this is what friends are for.

Version Psalm 23

Im led by You
and in the leading
I lack for nothing.

You lead me to
the waters where
I can lay down,

I am restored
because you lead me
into a right place,

You go before
I go through hell
and you are with me.

A table set
to honor me
You meet my needs

I dont deserve
in all my ways
please live with me.

Version Psalm 13

Will forever cover time and space
of how long till I see your face?

I speak to me with stricken words
they come at me with brandished swords

Lightened eyes wont sleep at all
you hear my cry before I fall

Grandiose voices rail with glee
allow not death to conquer me

A faith in substitution finds
arms outstretched toward aid devine

A lasting note is on my breath
requited tones escaped from death

Oh The Humanity

i forgot to mention im human
i failed to remember your not

im lost in a sea of confusion
im here in the depths of regret

i hear the sound of your spirit
i hear the sound of heartbreak

i wish to know more than i
i hope you can see more than me

i know the future is coming
i sense a movement of peace

i wish to be more like you
i long for i to be we

you see my thoughts from afar
you know my every desire

you alone can mend the broken
you alone turn pain to relief

you never have shunned the fainthearted
you hold them close to your chest

you stand on the mountains of power
you rise to beyond all degrees

you move with the wind of solaris
you funnel eternity now

forgive me i doubted your goodness
forgive me great king of my past

a note to this cool diploma guy

And answering, he said, You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself.
(Luke 10:27 MKJV)

The two great commandments summed up from the ten commandments.

And a certain ruler asked Him, saying, Good Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life? And Jesus said to him, Why do you call Me good? None is good except One, God. You know the commandments: Do not commit adultery, do not kill, do not steal, do not bear false witness, honor your father and your mother. And he said, I have kept all these from my youth up. And when Jesus heard these things, He said to him, Yet you lack one thing. Sell all that you have and distribute to the poor, and you shall have treasure in Heaven. And come, follow Me. And when he heard this, he was very sorrowful, for he was very rich. And when Jesus saw that he was very sorrowful, He said, How hardly those having riches shall enter into the kingdom of God!
(Luke 18:18-24 MKJV)

Jesus is pointing out to the rich guy that he put his money above the first two commandments. That is why he went away sorrowful.


Then Jesus says to them, Truly, truly, I say to you, Unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man, and drink His blood, you do not have life in yourselves. Whoever partakes of My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day. For My flesh is food indeed, and My blood is drink indeed. He who partakes of My flesh and drinks My blood dwells in Me, and I in him.
(John 6:53-56 MKJV)

Jesus gives the answer to eating His flesh and drinking His blood, because His followers were tripping on what He just said:

Then when they had heard, many of His disciples said, This is a hard saying, who can hear it?
(John 6:60 MKJV)

He explains what He means:

As the living Father has sent Me, and I live through the Father, so he who partakes of Me, even he shall live by Me.
(John 6:57 MKJV)

Biblically, we can understand what it means to eat of Jesus when we understand what happened to Adam and Eve when they ate of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. It was after they ate the forbidden fruit that they fell because they no longer were completely and constantly dependent on the Father. You see, prior to the Fall, whenever they had questions, whenever they had problems, whenever there might be confusion, they said, "Father, what should we do?" But once they ate of the forbidden fruit, they became independent. They no longer talked to their Abba, their Papa, their Father. They said instead, "We know what's good. We know what's evil. We know how to handle this or accomplish that."
Which I think goes well with your next set of verses:

And Jesus called a little child to Him and set him in their midst, and said, Truly I say to you, Unless you are converted and become as little children, you shall not enter into the kingdom of Heaven.
(Matthew 18:2-3 MKJV)

The next verse explains vs 2-3:

Therefore whoever shall humble himself like this little child, this one is the greater in the kingdom of Heaven.
(Matthew 18:4 MKJV)

If your to proud to realize that Jesus was right about how to come to Him, then you cant enter heaven. You gotta see like a child sees...without preconceptions or without bias based on parroting someone else.

Jesus answered and said to him, Truly, truly, I say to you, Unless a man is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. Nicodemus said to Him, How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter the second time into his mother's womb and be born? Jesus answered, Truly, truly, I say to you, Unless a man is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not marvel that I said to you, You must be born again. The Spirit breathes where He desires, and you hear His voice, but you do not know from where He comes, and where He goes; so is everyone who is born of the Spirit.
(John 3:3-8 MKJV)

Born of the Spirit makes sense. The Holy Spirit is the one who hovered over the earth in the beggining ( Gen 1:2 ), He was the one who breathed life into Adam ( Gen 2:7 ).

Even Jesus said the Spirit gives life elsewhere...
( It is the Spirit that makes alive, the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit and are life.
(John 6:63 MKJV))


But Jesus answered them, My Father works until now, and I work. Then, because of this, the Jews sought the more to kill Him, because He not only had broken the sabbath, but also said that God was His father, making Himself equal with God. Then Jesus answered and said to them, Truly, truly, I say to you, The Son can do nothing of Himself but what He sees the Father do. For whatever things He does, these also the Son does likewise. For the Father loves the Son and shows Him all the things that He Himself does. And He will show Him greater works than these, so that you may marvel.
(John 5:17-20 MKJV)

I love these verses. The Jews understood that Jesus said He was God. They couldnt grasp that concept, and...because of their zeal without knowledge, wanted to kill him.

I see Jesus reachng out to men who are not that smart, independant and unruly at best, extremely proud and self serving humans. I dont see phalacies though.
