Daily Bible Reading - Psalm 82

Good Morning World,

I would like to share a story of a treasure I found yesterday.  It is very exciting to me, and may mean nothing to you, but nonetheless this testimony will be heard!

I've been looking for an Amplified Bible for many years to assist in my biblical and spiritual studies, and could never find or buy one as they are very expensive.  Yesterday, I was in Gander, Newfoundland rummaging around the town wasting time while a friend was in the hospital with her son getting his arm re-broken and re-set.  A very long process.

I was looking for a small cafe, which I didn't find for a couple more hours, and happened upon the Gander Mall. In this mall is a used book store that is called "The Book Worm".  While perusing the walls of books I found a 1971 version of the Amplified Bible, and it was only priced for $10.00!  What a find! What a treasure!  Thank God for small miracles! (and Big Ones - just depends on which way you look at it!)  I am very excited and know that this new addition to my library will be a great asset for my future studies, and to those who hear the word that God gives me to preach....  Thank You Jesus!

Psalm 82
This is a very short but powerful Song of God's greatness and instruction to His people.

First and foremost our God, The Almighty, stands in the midst of His people and judges.  He is watching.  He is weighing the spirits of mankind.  He is deciding our fate.  Amidst this watching, judging and weighing God has some instruction and direction for His people to take.

1. Do Not Judge others unjustly.
2. Do Not accept the wicked into places of authority. (or anyplace for that matter)
3. Defend the Poor and Fatherless.
4. Do justice for and to the Afflicted and Needy.
5. Deliver the Poor and Needy. Help them get out of the hand of the wicked who would use them.

Yet, God is not convinced that we will follow His direction, guidance or leadership.  It is a sad day when the people that claim to be on God's side will not follow Him.  Too often I see the "people" of God destroying His reputation, love and mercy by being liars, prejudiced, stealers, harlots to this world and so much more!

This is a call to listen to the voice of God calling, directing, leading!  We must follow our Saviour into Battle and bring Salvation to the lost masses of this World - lost Christian and Sinner alike!

Yours for obedience,

Pastor Fred

This week Lord Jesus we bring the country of Canada. Let the revival of your Word and Name sweep across this vast dominion.
