Psalm 91

As far as I understand Psalm 91, it is sung by two persons: psalmist and God the Father. It is a Psalm which speaks mainly about Christ, what God the Father will do, but the Psalm speaks also about each and every Christian.

verse 1: Psalmist: " He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty."
Who is He? Well, the Word of God, who was with God and who was and is God. He is Christ Jesus, who was and is in the bosom of his Father (John 1:18, Exo 4 - extraordinary picture of Jesus Christ's first and the second coming).

verse 2: Psalmist , Jesus Christ and each and every Christian say: "I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust."

verse 3: Psalmist: "Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence."
Those were words addressed to Christ and to same very limited extent also to each and every Christian.
Many, many times people wanted to kill Jesus. Many, many times they have asked him questions - and no matter what he would answer - they would kill him for that - but surprisingly he always managed to find the way out of the snares of the "fowlers". God saved him.

verse 4: Psalmist: "He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler."
What? God has feathers and wings?! Well, yes. Read how was Jesus Christ baptized... Holy Ghost descended in a bodily shape like a dove unto him (Jesus). It doesn't say, that Holy Ghost was dove or is dove or that his shape was the shape of a dove - but surely his shape had wings and feathers... otherwise why would be written, that he descended like a dove...

And under protection of the Holy Ghost is each and every Christian too :)

verse 5, 6: Psalmist: "Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day; Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday."
This were words addressed to Jesus Christ and to a limited extent they are true also for each and every Christian. Under protection of the Holy Ghost there is no fear of such things. You are not afraid, what will happen to your body - the main thing is soul - as Jesus is telling us in Matthew 10:28:
"And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell."
and in Matthew 16:26:
"For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?"

I like to sing those two verses over and over again... even though I try to refrain myself of doing to much refrain :) You are not afraid what the earthlings, the world, the people of the world - whose mind and heart is focused on earthly things - are afraid of...

verse 7,8: Psalmist: "A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.
Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked."
That is true for Christ - at his second coming, as it is described in Revelation 19:13-21.

verse 9: Psalmist: "Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;"
Jesus was in the bosom of his Father, under God's wings... he abideth under his shadow (as verse 1 is telling us) so - yes - the God was his habitation.

verse 10: Psalmist: "There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling."
That was true for Jesus Christ during his life on the Earth, during his ministry... his body was safe, secured under the wings of Holy Ghost - all until his glorious salvation on that tree... He knew, that he is perfectly safe until the crucifixion:
John 10:17: "Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again."

verse 11, 12: Psalmist: "For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.
They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone."
This verse did Satan quote, when tempting Jesus, as we read in Matthew 4:6:
"And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone."
Yes, the words are not completely the same, but the meaning is the same, the message is the same and if you still want to find some fault in the Scriptures - don't forget, that it is Satan, who is quoting the Scriptures.

verse 13: Psalmist: "Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet."
Well, the first prophesy regarding Jesus is telling us the same thing - God said to snake, dragon:
"And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel." Christ was very, very likely hurt in his heel when crucified - he defeated the evil one on that tree - but at his second coming and after millennium reign, his victory will be complete.

And what about lion? There is at least one connection between lion and the devil:
1Pe 5:8: "Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:"
Well, Jesus is named the Lion of the tribe of Juda, and young lion should be someone, who is younger than he is... someone who was created... I have one cherubim in mind - the Devil, but the young lion could be also the Devil's son, the Antichrist. Anyway - the evil guys will be destroyed by Jesus Christ :)

verse 14: God the Father: "Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name."
And he did it - he raised him from the dead and he set him on high, at his right hand.
Now, regarding God's name. Some people are claiming, that one has to pronounce God's name correctly and even Jesus, they say, we should call him by his Jewish name. But that would be witchcraft. Witches and Catholics and Hindus and people of today are trying to address someone correctly, they try to use correct words, but their heart is not with the person, they are speaking to. They are pretending, flattering by lips, worshiping that person only with lips and God had said, that he doesn't like that (read Is 29:13). And moreover, the Bible warns us about so many things, apostles... but they never warn us about the correct pronunciation. And moreover - what did Jesus say - how should we pray, how should we address God the Father? Our Father which art in heaven...
and moreover his instruction to apostles was to teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.
But still, maybe that name was lost and some guy had to come in the 20th century to restore it.
Maybe we should call Jesus Jehoshua or maybe Jeshua or... whatever someone says...
Could that be the case? NO, because the history of the Church is perfectly described in Jesus' letters to 7 Churches and there is no mention of anyone, who would come 2000 years after Christ to restore "true" teaching, which was lost... No - Masons have lost their word, their God. But the Word is with Christians till the end... And besides that, we have been warned about the great falling away from the faith... and about many false prophets (liars, speaking in the name of God, against God).

verse 15: God the Father: "He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him."
Do I need to say something about that? I guess not :)

verse 16: God the Father: "With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation."
What is long life? Is more than 1000 years on the Earth long life? Because Christ will return and rule the Earth for 1000 years... Is that long? And what about eternity? Because he (and his) will live forever... God the Father did show him his salvation and he has shown and will show his salvation also to each and every Christian.

That's it for today. God bless you :)
