Psalm 101 (A Lesson On Television From Psalm 101)

.

.

.

.

“Be not deceived:

evil communications corrupt good manners.”

1st Corinthians 15:33

When taking a course in college, one would naturally begin with a “101” course. “101” signifies a beginning course. “202” signifies an intermediate course. “303” signifies a more advanced course.

.

And so, let’s just pretend that we are going to college, and we are going to attempt to get a degree in…say…“Overcoming The World”.

.

Now let’s also pretend that it’s the first day of classes. And we walk into our classroom, and our first class is called, “Television 101”.

.

And so, we sit down and the professor begins by writing on his chalkboard, the following Psalm…

“Psalm 101”

.

.

.

.

“A Psalm of David.”

.

.

.

“I will sing of mercy and judgment: unto thee, O LORD, will I sing.”

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:002_GISLabHNU_16022013.jpg(These David Psalms are the thoughts of David, who is a symbol of Christ!

.

But these Psalms can also convey the thoughts of the Christian.

.

And in this above verse, David is so happy with God’s government, which has the pillars of truth: “Mercy and Judgment”.

VERSE 2

.

“I will behave myself wisely in a perfect way.”

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:002_GISLabHNU_16022013.jpg(Yes, this is the desire of every Christian: to behave wisely in Christlike perfection!

.

That reminds us Ephesians 3:20, in which God says He can do far more in our lives than we can even imagine!)

.

.

.

“O when wilt Thou (God) come unto me?”

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:002_GISLabHNU_16022013.jpg(Yes, we each long for deliverance from all our foolish ways!)

.

.

.

“I will walk within my house with a perfect heart.”

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:002_GISLabHNU_16022013.jpg(And here in this above declaration, David is pronouncing his great desire and ambition in life and his daily determination: to walk in an unwavering love and obedience.)

VERSE 3

.

.

“I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes:”

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:002_GISLabHNU_16022013.jpg(How can I continue to watch TV with such statements as this above declaration?) 

.

.

.

“I hate the work of them that turn aside;”

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:002_GISLabHNU_16022013.jpg(How can I continue to watch TV, knowing that I am being entertained by those who have no love for God, or the Bible? I should hate the evil works in the world and in the church! And so, why do I continue to daily feed on the sins of the world and the sins of the worldly church?)

.

.

.

it shall not cleave (cling) to me.”

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:002_GISLabHNU_16022013.jpg(How can I continue to watch TV, having such exhortations as this one? Because, by watching TV (or secular radio, magazines, etc.,) the evil works of sin are still clinging to me!)

.

.

.

.

.

.

VERSE 4

.

.

“A froward (crooked) heart shall depart from me:”

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:002_GISLabHNU_16022013.jpg(Seeing that most all of television has little love for Bible truth, can I do anything but allow such visitors enter into the sanctuary of my home, via TV, radio, Internet, etc.?)

.

.

.

“I will not know a wicked [person].”

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:002_GISLabHNU_16022013.jpg(The word, “person” is a supplied word here. And so, this statement means much more than just a person. It also includes a wicked device, or a wicked message. But let’s not forget that “wicked”, according to the Bible is defined as anything not in harmony with the Bible.)

.

VERSE 5

.

.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Germany_Singelfingen_Gossips.jpg

“Whoso privily slandereth his neighbour, him will I cut off:”

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:002_GISLabHNU_16022013.jpg(So much of TV focuses on mockery and slander of people! And woe to us, if we allow our ears to enjoy hearing such vilification of others!)

“him that hath an high look and a proud heart will not I suffer.”

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:002_GISLabHNU_16022013.jpg(Pride is perhaps the most exalted quality that is pressed upon the viewers: the advertisements, the various programming are literally dripping with pride!)

.

VERSE 6

.

.

“Mine eyes shall be upon the faithful of the land, that they may dwell with me:”

.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Infant_with_baby_bottle.jpg

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:002_GISLabHNU_16022013.jpg(So-called Christian TV channels are extremely apostate, that even the best of programs are mingled with a world-loving undercurrent!

.

How long am I going to continue to drink in Christian TV’s “soured & tainted milk” of entry-level doctrines mingled with falsehood, instead of moving onward and upward to the “meat of the Word”, as we are commanded?)

“he that walketh in a perfect way, he shall serve Me.”

.

 

(God does not accept a low-level service! Those who have one foot in the world, and one foot on the heavenly highway will never progress upward!)

VERSE 7

.

.

“He that worketh deceit shall not dwell within my house:”

.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:ABC_-_Good_Morning_America.jpg

(Here again, so much of secular and even so-called Christian programming is deceitful!

.

Yes, by avoiding the “hard sayings” of the Bible, Christians are getting watered-down gospel!)

.

.

.

.

.

“he that telleth lies shall not tarry in my sight.”

PSALM 101:8

.

.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Hollygrove11Jan06TypewriterCurbTrash.jpg

“I will early destroy all the wicked of the land;”

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:002_GISLabHNU_16022013.jpg(Yes, God will destroy those who refuse to come out of this Babylonian world (and apostate church).

.

No, we cannot come totally out of the world. But we can come a good way out! Put the TV where it belongs! (But if your family still wants to watch TV, then you can only remove yourself from it, while continuing to pray for your family. Never force others!))

.

“that I may cut off all wicked doers from the city of the LORD.”

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:002_GISLabHNU_16022013.jpg(The call goes out to every Christian… “Come out of her (the harlot church), My people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.” Revelation 18:4.

.

Those who do not respond to this call to depart from the powerful influences of this high tech world and high-tech church, will suffer the intense plagues promised here in Revelation 18:4!)

PSALM 101: A MESSAGE FOR THIS HOUR!

.

Yes, it seems that Psalm 101 has a special message for those of us who are living in this very hour of fearful judgment.

.

The world is being mesmerized by the various forms of mass media!

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:002_GISLabHNU_16022013.jpgAnd so, if any Christian has the desire to overcome the world, then of course, the very first place one would want to begin is by eliminating television, secular radio (and most so-called “Christian” radio, and non-Christian Internet, magazines, books, etc..)

“Dear Lord, Give me victory over television and secular radio! Help me to begin looking upward, looking unto Jesus…

“And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman…And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads…And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.” Revelation 12:1, 3, 15

LOCATION…

.winter four constellations

The Wave Constellation is primarily comprised of the Auriga Constellation plus one star from Taurus, plus one more star. The Winter Constellations are depicted in this below sketch to the right, and shows this constellation group as they are seen in early winter, as they rise in the eastern skies. The Woman is in the north. The Dragon and Orion are farther south from the Woman.

.

WINTER CONSTELLATIONS-SEEN IN FALL: This sketch to the right is how this constellation group appears in the eastern sky in fall. This is the four primary constellations of the Winter Constellations. They can be seen in this position, in the late fall above the eastern horizon. The Woman of Revelation 12 is commonly called Ursa Major or The Big Dipper and appears in the north. Orion the Soldier is the at the bottom is to the south of the Woman. The The Dragon of Revelation Constellation’s mouth isThe Hyades Cluster, and the tip of his tail is Pleiades, and his Wave of Water is primarily the Auriga constellation. The Glorious Horse Constellation head is of Perseus Constellation and his rear end is Cassiopeia Constellation.

(Editor’s note: It is impossible to make this chart accurate, and visually correct, because the dome effect of the sky makes these constellations look different than they appear when placed on flat paper.)
