God Who Hears: Psalm 9 II

March 30, 2014
The Lord also will be a stronghold for the oppressed, A stronghold in times of trouble; And those who know Your name will put their trust in You, For You, O Lord, have not forsaken those who seek You.(Psalm 9:9-10)

As we face some difficult times as a nation, we hear many voices that disturb us in medias. We appreciate the truth about the reality of our nation, but we would like to hear hope with the solutions. Oppressing public with fear only paralyze them more than motivate them to arise. Most of people in America were immigrated in some point, whether in their parent’s generation, grandparents’ generation or great grandparents generation. Somehow, they built this nation from pretty much nothing. But many had their faith in God. Let’s think of the time when it was worse than today. Sharing hope and encouragement is a godly thing to do as believers. There are many family members who are going through difficult times. As a body of Christ, we should build each other up.

"Is anyone among you suffering? Then he must pray. Is anyone cheerful? He is to sing praises." (James 5:13). The king David praised and prayed whenever he encountered the difficult times.

Psalm 23
We live in a broken world with full of challenges, failures, and disappointments. As life continues, many unknowns lie before us that can weigh us down, inflicting wounds that often get buried or ignored. We have been created to thrive in our relationships with God, our family, our neighbors and ourselves. By knowing that God is our Good Shepherd, understanding the identity that we have as his precious sheep, we can find rest and healing in our souls. Through this humble book, Healing Through Psalm 23, may God comfort you who are suffering, who are in pain, who need forgiveness; may you know God, walk confidently and grow into the maturity of coming alongside others in their journey of healing.

Muth-labben. A Psalm of David God hears our prayer. Psalm 9 is a song of death to a son. "But the Lord abides forever; He has established His throne for judgment, And He will judge the world in righteousness; He will execute judgment for the peoples with equity. The Lord also will be a stronghold for the oppressed, A stronghold in times of trouble; And those who know Your name will put their trust in You, For You, O Lord, have not forsaken those who seek You." (Psalm 9:7-10)God is very aware of what is happening on the earth and attentive to our prayer.He also answers our prayer. He is so faithful that we can trust Him.

God knows our heart already, but he would love for us to pay attention to him and talk to Him even if He knows already what we want to say. The word, “Shamea” in Hebrew is mainly used for the word, "hear" in English as well as “Azen” in Hebrew. When Psalm’s writer used the word, “Shamea” “Azen, Azen”, he was pleading to God to listen to him and He hearsd him. God hears our heart. Psalm 39:12 “Hear H8085 my prayer, H8605 O LORD, H3068 and give H238 ear H238 to my cry; H7775 Do not be silent at my tears; For I am a stranger with You, A sojourner like all my fathers. Psalm 54:2 Hear H8085 my prayer, H8605 O God; H430 Give H238 ear H238 to the words of my mouth. The word “ hear” in English is used 531times in 494 verses. We want to focus on the word “Shamea” שָׁמַע today. This word is used in Genesis 58 times, in Deuteronomy 82 times in Psalm 78 times and in Jeremiah 168 times. We can see the importance in hearing from God just by glancing the usage of this word “hear”. God not only hears us, but commends us to hear Him as well. We will talk about the word, “hear” in terms of “we hear from God”. When we see the “shamea” is used mostly in Jeremiah, we can see God was pleading to Israel to hear what God had to say. I think He is the same way today. God wants us to pay attention to Him today, as He wanted Israel to hear Him back then.May God hear us and grant us ears to hear Him!

15 and having shod YOUR FEET WITH THE PREPARATION OF THE GOSPEL OF PEACE; (Ephesians 6:15)Have you been angry? Angry so much that you cannot have peace? When we experience the anguish that consumes us, then we understand what peace means after our anguish or anger is subsided. Have we really thought about how much we be angry if we were God who watches over us and see what is really going on? We really cannot blame God what kind evil is going on in this world. We will appreciate God is being patient with us. Peace is not something we can manufacture it. What sustains us when we are wronged is the love of God. His enduring love sustains us and gives us peace. When God dwells in us, we can have peace. Ultimately, Good News gives us peace within ourselves and with others. We can study just the word “peace” for months. The word, “peace” in Hebrew is shalom, the root word is “shalem”. "An interesting finding from is that “shalem” is used of the whole (i.e. uncut) stones for the altar (Deut 27:, Josh 8:31) and also of the dressed stones used for the temple (I Kings 6:7) " Harris, R. L., Harris, R. L., Archer, G. L., & Waltke, B. K. Theological Wordbook of the Old Testament (Chicago: Moody Press, 1999) 931.

Many times, I thought about "how deeply do I know the heart of God who loves us so much that He had to give himself for us?" As Almighty God, being born in a woman who betrayed and being bitten by one he created, and smitten by the one he loves is not quite comprehendible. Suffering is an inevitable process in the school of ministry. While we are going trough the suffering, we end up being in solitude of the presence of God. We become a partaker of suffering of Christ. While we are going through suffering, it is importnant put on the full armor of God, which explained in the book of Ephesians 6:10-24. "Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. 11 Put on the full armor of God,"

"And He was saying, “Abba! Father! All things are possible for You; remove this cup from Me; yet not what I will, but what You will.”(Mark 14:36) As an example, brethren, of suffering and patience, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord. 11 We count those blessed who endured. You have heard of the endurance of Job and have seen the outcome of the Lord’s dealings, that the Lord is full of compassion and is merciful. (James 5:7-11)

The farmer waits for the precious produce of the soil, being patient about it, until it gets the early and late rains. You too be patient; strengthen your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is near. Do not complain, brethren, against one another, so that you yourselves may not be judged; behold, the Judge is standing right at the door. As an example, brethren, of suffering and patience, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord. 11 We count those blessed who endured. You have heard of the endurance of Job and have seen the outcome of the Lord’s dealings, that the Lord is full of compassion and is merciful. (James 5:7-11)

We have a guest, Tom Brown, the host of Koinonia at 1360AM KPXQ. He shares hope and encouragement with us. How can people who experienced an abortion be saved? The answer is very symple, but is profound. Yes, they can be saved and can go to havean. (Romans 10:9) Fathers who experienced an abortion are experiencing emotional pain as much as mothers. It is blessing to have a safe environment to share the burden to each other without condemnation or gossip. One way of being mature in Christ is being honest and free in Christ from the shame and the bondage of guilt.Can post-abortive family experience illness whehter emotinaly or spiritualy even if even if they are saved? The answer is "yes". Like anyother illness, post abortive can experience some emtional, spritual illness even they are saved. How can we experience the healing? Not for every post abirtive, but one way is to share our pain and grief with someone you can trust, close friends or church leaders who can understand the issue without any condemnation. "Is anyone among you sick? Then he must call for the elders of the church and they are to pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord; 15 and the prayer offered in faith will restore the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up, and if he has committed sins, they will be forgiven him. 16 Therefore, confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another so that you may be healed. The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much. (James 5:14-16) God's grace is strong enough to bear one another's burden!

The answer is very symple, but is profound. "But what does it say? “The word is near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart,”that is, the message concerning faith that we proclaim: 9 If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved. 11 As Scripture says, “Anyone who believes in him will never be put to shame.”12 For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile—the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him, 13 for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” (Romans 10:9) Can post-abortive family experience illness whehter emotinaly or spiritualy even if even if they are saved? The answer is "yes". Like anyother illness, post abortive can experience some emtional, spritual illness even they are saved. How can we experience the healing?

The finale of the verse Ephesians 5:1-33 is in the verse, 32 "This mystery is great; but I am speaking with reference to Christ and the church." The word, mystery, in Hebrew is raz. It is written 9 times; it is used in Daniel 8 times in chapter 2 and 1 time in chapter 4. In Greek, mystery is mytrion. NASB 27 times. It is used 6 times in the book of Ephesians in chapter 1:9, 3:3, 3;4, 3:9, 5:2, 6:19.A mystery goes beyond reason but not against reason. There is no contradiction, yet we lack total comprehension. Further, a mystery is not something that can be attained by unaided human reason (see FAITH AND REASON). A mystery is known only by special divine revelation (see REVELATION, SPECIAL). Hence, mysteries are not the subject of natural theology but only of revealed theology.Geisler, N. L. (1999). In Baker encyclopedia of Christian apologetics. Grand Rapids, MI: Baker Books. 7 but in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he is about to sound, then the mystery of God is finished, as He[a]preached to His servants the prophets.(Revelation 10:7)Revelation 10:7 declares this fulfillment. The ages of waiting in perplexity, of enduring evil, are over, as the angel announces, “There will be no more delay!” (v 6). The time has finally come when “the mystery of God will be accomplished” (v 7). Geisler, N. L. (1999). In Baker encyclopedia of Christian apologetics. Grand Rapids, MI: Baker Books.

So husbands ought also to love their own wives as their own bodies. He who loves his own wife loves himself;for no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ also does the church, 30 because we are members of His body. (Ephesians 5:28-29) "he nourishes and tenderly cares for it" (NRSV). This word, nourish ἐκτρέφω, is used only two times; in Ephesus 5:29 and 6:4. "Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord." This word, cherish θάλπω, is used only two times; in Ephesus 5:29 and 1 Thessalonians 2:7. But we proved to be gentle among you, as a nursing mother tenderly cares for her own children. Having so fond an affection for you, we were well-pleased to impart to you not only the gospel of God but also our own lives, because you had become very dear to us. A man with the Spirit of God can discern the heart of his wife. May God lead us to His wisdom! "You husbands in the same way, live with your wives in an understanding way, as with someone weaker, since she is a woman; and show her honor as a fellow heir of the grace of life, so that your prayers will not be hindered." (1 Peter 3:7) Refernece Verse (Jamaes 5:13-16)
