Psalm 1: How To Breeze Through The Coming Crisis! Part 4

To read Part 1, click here… “May 7 (Psalm 1: How To Breeze Through The Coming Crisis)”

.

.

.

.

.

.

“Blessed is the man that walks not in the counsel of the ungodly,

nor stands in the way of sinners,

nor sits in the seat of the scornful.

But his delight is in the law of the LORD;

and in His law doth he meditate day and night.”

Psalm 1:1, 2

.

.

.

.

 

Now, the 4th component of Psalm 1’s counsel is the most joyful to write about.

.

It is the one positive counsel, after the first three negatives…

Listen again… 1. “Blessed is the man that walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, 2. nor stands in the way of sinners, 3. nor sits in the seat of the scornful. 4. BUT HIS DELIGHT IS IN THE LAW OF THE LORD; AND IN HIS LAW DOTH HE MEDITATE, DAY AND NIGHT.” Psalm 1:1, 2

.

Yes, this is the frosting on the cake, so to speak! This is the blissful duty that will make the soon-coming crisis a complete and utter delight! To get lost in the Word of Christ! To meditate upon His precious promises!

.

Here is the creme-de-la-creme of the Christian life!

PERFECT PEACE

.

But how does this component help us to breeze right through the soon-coming crisis?

Perhaps this following verse might begin to help us in our quest to understand just how we might breeze our way through the Coming Crisis… “Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on Thee: because he trusteth in Thee. Trust ye in the LORD for ever: for in the LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength:” Isaiah 26:3, 4

.

So here, all tucked away in the Old Testament, is a giant concept!

.

To keep one’s mind fixed upon Jesus! That will keep us in perfect peace!

.

And to maintain that perfect peace through the coming conflict will of course, make it a breeze! Right?

.

What more could we ask for than perfect peace through the tough times ahead?

TREE PLANTED BY LIVING WATERS

.Willow by J D Forester - Wikipedia

Now, Psalm 1 continues… “And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.” Psalm 1:3

.

So in the first two verses of Psalm 1, we have the remedy for sin.

.

And in this above 3rd verse of Psalm 1, we see the blessed results of living such a life of fixing our minds upon God’s Word.

UNGODLY LIKE THE CHAFF

.

But now, this very short Psalm 1 concludes by saying this… “The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away. Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.” Psalm 1:4-6

.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Vannage_du_riz,_Uttarakhand,_India.jpg

So here in this above passage is revealed the ultimate destruction which results from not living by the first two verses of Psalm 1.

.

And those who fail to live by the first two verses of Psalm 1 will not stand in the Judgment just before us!

.

They will be driven away like the chaff in the wind! (As you can see in this above photo, this woman is allowing the wind to drive away the chaff from the wheat.)

IN HEAVENLY PLACES

.

But we who are desiring to breeze through the coming crisis ahead, must, in addition to avoiding the miry cesspool of sin all around us, keep our minds fixed upon God’s Word!

.

Our thoughts must be far above the fray, if we are going to stand on that proverbial, “sea of glass”, amidst the fiery trials before us!

.

We need to be sitting, “together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:” Ephesians 2:6

.

And of course, such a mindset can only be possible through the indwelling of the Holy Spirit!

.

And of course, we must dispense with all the worldly distractions which prevent such a 24/7/365 contemplation of God’s Word!

THE HEAVENWARD PATH

upward pathway to heaven

.

 

So for those who wish to breeze right through the coming, “time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time:” Daniel 12:1, we must not wait to have this Psalm 1 experience!

.

We must begin right now, right where we are!

.

We must keep our head above the filthiness and pettiness so prevalent in everyday life.

.

But in addition, we must begin to make God’s Words the very stepping stones of our daily upward pathway!

.

.

.

.

.

“I WILL KEEP THEE FROM THE HOUR…”

.

And by so-doing, we will no doubt, just breeze our way through the coming crisis, when it finally arrives!

To all such, these following words are written…

.

“Because thou hast kept the word of My patience,

I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation,

which shall come upon all the world,

to try them that dwell upon the earth.” 

Revelation 3:10

CASTOR AND POLLUX SKETCH:  EASTERN SKY

.

Here in this sketch is when these constellations are in the eastern sky in early winter.  Satan spews out his false worldly ideologies, which many of these ideologies have a form of godliness. On the other hand, the Strait Gate (Narrow Gate) is composed of the two brightest stars of the Orion The Reaper’s sickle. God’s Word, the Bible is that sickle. The true Strait Gate is God’s Word, the Bible. As a sickle harvests the wheat, so God’s Word will gather precious souls to Him.
