Today is a very special day on the Line of Fire, as Dr. Brown sifts through the messianic prophecies found in the book of Psalms. Be sure to tune in today!
Dr. Brown’s Bottom Line: The psalms, in many wonderful ways, play out the Messiah’s suffering and deliverance from death, His resurrection and exaltation to the right hand of God, and just as surely as this is laid out, He will return to rule and reign!

Worship is the greatest act of union and fellowship with the Lord. It unites us to Him.
A believer becomes ONE with the Lord by the act of worship.
Jesus is the Lord of the Sabbath. We experience His rest, His Sabbath when we worship JESUS CHRIST.
The only way we will know the Lord’s love and intimacy is by worshipping Him.
This is why it is said:
“Wake up, sleeper,
rise from the dead,
and Christ will shine on you.”
King David is a great example how how He worshiped the Lord.
I will extol You, my God, O King;
And I will bless Your name forever and ever.
Every day I will bless You,
And I will praise Your name forever and ever.
Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised;
And His greatness us unsearchable.
I rejoiced hearing of your snorkeling! I think you work very hard and should rest and play.
Even the Messiah himself had to seek solace. God Bless you man of God and your lovely wife Nancy.
I heard shalom in your spirit as you spoke. I heard the joy of the Lord in you. Just as it should be.
It seems to me that worshipping men often receive the wisdom and revelations of God even though God may appear (by way of Jesus, or by his instruction appearing in some other way such as Peter’s vision of something like a great sheet descending from heaven with all kinds of animals inside, for example- Acts 10)to anyone at any time.
I say it like this because I remember that Jesus said that he that has seen him has seen the Father also. (John 14:9)
I believe David saw Jesus as the scripture says. (Acts 2:25 for example)
I believe David saw Jesus, prophesied of him and also of his own eternal salvation, his dwelling in the house of the Lord forever. (Psalm 23:6)
I trust that that is where David is today. (Romans 10:9,10)
I think what David was saying by Psalm 16:10,11, is that David’s lot will not be to end in eternal hell or eternal death being burried in an earthly grave, but rather, he saw himself covered by the Lord Jesus whom he saw and had spoken of, having a solid hope in him who had and who would continue showing him the path of life forever.
David had this hope of eternal joy in his presence.
Though David himself died and was burried and has not yet received the fullness of a resurrected life in Christ (for he is yet waiting for the resurrection of his earthly body) yet (I trust) he is presently in the presence of the Lord, being covered by Christ and his Spirit which was given unto him, through which David lived and moved, and spoke of him.
I trust that David is today at the Lord’s right hand in the heavenlies today, being a part of the family of God which is in heaven. (Psalm 16:11, Eph 3:15)
As far as who is at Jesus’ right hand, I don’t think it’s for me to know, yet I believe that David in Christ today in the heavenly realm, in heaven, is in Christ and Christ is at God’s (who is the Lord over all, as Jesus is also to us) right hand.
In the presence of God, which is where David is now, God is presently a blessing to David immediately within reach, for Christ, David’s Lord is there and David is in him.
I believe David is living out the blessings of the very things he experienced in this world of the things of God though some of them are yet to be fullfilled. I’m thinking here of the resurrection of the dead.
When I read Psalm 22, it seems that David did suffer hell on this earth, his enemies being spiritual as well as people living in the flesh.
When I think of the evils of the enemy, spiritual
beings causing suffering, I think this is a bit of a glimpse of a part of our Lord’s suffering, what he experienced also on the cross for us.
I do believe David suffered spiritually many attacks from the enemy. When I read the Psalms, I think he knew what spiritual warfare was about. He was a warrior, a soldier in this world and was not untouched by the spiritual realm also.
The Lord’s suffering for us was not physical only, that is it wasn’t only physical pain that he endured.
The Lord inhabits the praises of His people.
That is why David is a man after the Lord’s own heart. David relied on the Lord for everything.
Jesus you are our breath, you are our lifeline, you are our help in a time of need.
Jesus you are soooo good.
WAIT…it says only God is good. Oh, so I’ll say it again Jesus you are soooo GOOD!! 🙂
Ray- I was blessed reading your post #7.
To be absent from this physical body is to be present with the LORD! I do not worry about in what form; I just want to be with Him! I have come close; I have heart issues and have an operation being scheduled in the next couple of weeks as I type. He has been right beside of me all along the way. I prayed years ago that I would be a man of faith; because faith pleases God. I did not want to go through anything to get that faith, though! That is like wanting to be a Green Beret or Special Forces without enlisting in the military; it does not work that way! Not in the spiritual realm either. Everything we go through; whether great or small has great effect on our level and depth of faith. It is the faith of Jesus Christ, Yeshua Messiah working in and through us.
In Jesus old things pass away. Randy, may you find your physical heart to be new in Jesus’ name.
