Psalm 97

1 The Lord reigneth; let the earth rejoice; let the multitude of isles be glad thereof.

Clouds and darkness are round about him: righteousness and judgment are the habitation of his throne.

A fire goeth before him, and burneth up his enemies round about.

His lightnings enlightened the world: the earth saw, and trembled.

The hills melted like wax at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the Lord of the whole earth.

The heavens declare his righteousness, and all the people see his glory.

Confounded be all they that serve graven images, that boast themselves of idols: worship him, all ye gods.

Zion heard, and was glad; and the daughters of Judah rejoiced because of thy judgments, OLord.

For thou, Lord, art high above all the earth: thou art exalted far above all gods.

10 Ye that love the Lord, hate evil: he preserveth the souls of his saints; he delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked.

11 Light is sown for the righteous, and gladness for the upright in heart.

12 Rejoice in the Lord, ye righteous; and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.

  3. 10 God loves all who hate evil, And those who love him he keeps safe, Snatches them from the grip of the wicked. 11 Light-seeds are planted in the souls of God’s people, Joy-seeds are planted in good heart-soil. 12 So, God’s people, shout praise to God, Give thanks to our Holy God!

    We gotta depart from sin. God is my protector and provider.

  4. 9 For thou, Lord, art high above all the earth: thou art exalted far above all gods.

    John 12:32 And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.

    The problem with some people is that they have put themselves in the same level with God and they are not God. Men has advanced so much by technology, science, etc. that they think they can create the same way God does and what they don’t realize is that God is the one working through them. EVERYTHING is His, He created it all. We are the only creatures that while we live we can choose to worship Him; but the day will come when EVERY knee shall bow and EVERY tongue confess that Jesus Christ is God. I prefer to exalt HIM above ALL now while it is my choice and not when I am obligated to. Thank you Jesus for giving us a choice I CHOOSE YOU, MY LORD, MY SAVIOR, MY GOD!!!!!

  5. This chapter illustrates authority. One would be wise to acknowledge and show reverence to God (Jesus), while one is able; “Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created”. What a mighty God we serve! May the good Lord Bless you all in Jesus name, Amen

  6. Psalm 97:8-12
    A declaration of Zion’s joy that the Lord reigns (vv.8-9), and a reminder that only those who hate evil have real cause to rejoice in His righteous rule.(vv.10-12)

    • Thank you Jesus…….
      5. The hills melted like wax at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the Lord of the whole earth. 6. The heavens declare His righteousness, and all the people see his glory.

      amen…….

  7. You, God, are High God of the cosmos, Far, far higher than any of the gods. God loves all who hate evil, And those who love him he keeps safe, Snatches them from the grip of the wicked. Light-seeds are planted in the souls of God’s people, Joy-seeds are planted in good heart-soil. So, God’s people, shout praise to God, Give thanks to our Holy God! (Psalm 97:9-12 MSG)

  8. EVIDENCE OF TRUE LOVE

    9 For thou, Lord, art high above all the earth: thou art exalted far above all gods.
    10 Ye that love the Lord, hate evil: he preserveth the souls of his saints; he delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked.

    Entertainment is in our generation for most people a daily activate or event. With the various media, games, activities, and events available today, the entertainment field is by far the most lucrative in the world today.

    Entertainment is the display of the talents and gifts of GOD used by the heart and mind of man for personal gain. I am not defending nor arguing this state of man. However, we the Church, purchased by the Precious BLOOD of JESUS, are challenged here in the WORD of GOD to turn away from and literally hate evil. Many forms of entertainment are marketed on the pleasures of sin, which we know from the WORD of GOD that the pleasures of sin are very temporary. Only the LOVE and Kingdom of GOD are eternal.

    EVIDENCE OF TRUE LOVE is the display of hating evil. Not the hatred of people that do evil, but the hatred of the evil acts of mankind. This affects many of us primarily through the avenue of entertainment. Entertainment promotes sin (evil) songs that promote sin; lying, cursing, cheating, stealing, and many other promotions of intimacy outside of the marriage covenant. Video games that promote murder and killing. Movies and TV programs that promote every evil known to mankind, and many other promotions of evil to entice the heart and mind of man.

    TRUE LOVE understands that the promotion of evil is the pain of our SAVIOR. I can best express my LOVE (HIS LOVE through me) by hating, despising and refraining from evil.

    NOW

  9. 7 Confounded be all they that serve graven images, that boast themselves of idols: worship him, all ye gods.

    When I talk about church to my coworkers, most of them say to me that they don’t understand why I go to church so much. As I was reading this chapter today, I found this very true. When someone is not sold out fully to God, then they don’t understand the passion behind the cause.

  10. 97:10 ye that love the LORD hate evil: he preserveth the souls if his saints;he delivereth the out of the hand of the wicked.
    ————
    Very clear, we ought to hate anything that this world takes pleasure off that is not of GOD!
    We know( do not have to go through the list)
    In Jesus name AMEN!

  11. In this chapter the Lord tells us to hate evil. I hate evil with all of my heart. God teaches us through his commandments to walk a straight line, to be righteous to seek him and no one else. There is only one God and no other. Anything else pertaining wrong doing is considered evil, Lord deliver me and my family from all evil. I seek you Lord.

  12. v11 Light is sown for the righteous, and gladness for the upright in heart.
    v12 Rejoice in the LORD, ye righteous; and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.

    Anyone who walks in HIS LIGHT has the light of life.
    John called Jesus the” light of the world”
    John 8:12

    and as the creator of light GOD IS the
    ” FATHER OF LIGHT” James 1:17

    Interestingly JESUS described devil as the
    ” father of lies” John8:44

    What a choice! Light or lies?
    Praise GOD ! I choose HIS LIGHT.
    GOD’S people have always had something to show them the way.

    JESUS IS THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD!

    iPray
    iPraise and rejoice
    iThank HIM for HIS LIGHT
    iWorship HIM for who HE IS
    NOW

  13. 10 Love the LORD and hate evil! God protects his loyal people and rescues them from violence.
    11 If you obey and do right, a light will show you the way and fill you with happiness.
    12 You are the LORD’s people! So celebrate and praise the only God. (CEV)

  14. ILove to eat the book

    Sow Some Light

    11 Light is sown for the righteous, and gladness for the upright in heart.

    Wow, what a good consent. Need light, sow righteousness

  15. God reighns over creation the heavens display his awsome powers. Idoaters are put to shame but Gods people rejoice. The respoonse of the godly to the reighn of God is to hate rejoice in the Lord and offer his praise

  16. 11 Light is sown for the righteous, and gladness for the upright in heart.

    12 Rejoice in the Lord, ye righteous; and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.

    God who is light has shown his grace to those who lives righteously and has cause rejoicing in their hearts. Thank you Jesus you are an Holy God!

  17. Here’s another command, Love God, and hate evil. He delivereth, he preserves…..

    “Now”……………..

  18. The hills melt like wax
    Wow what an awesome God we serve! We are on our way to having 100 people filled with the Holy Ghost this month alone! Think of how many hills/mountains are being melted/moved in all these lives. That is a forever change–AMEN!!!

    Unity and submission at the PoFW will show that we are fully committed and we see the great move of God in our March Maddness!

  19. 9 For thou, Lord, art high above all the earth: thou art exalted far above all gods.

    10 Ye that love the Lord, hate evil: he preserveth the souls of his saints; he delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked.

    11 Light is sown for the righteous, and gladness for the upright in heart.

    12 Rejoice in the Lord, ye righteous; and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.

  20. Hate the very appearance of evil! As we learned today in the world of God, to obey is the way! Obedience to God’s word will steer us clear for any evil, which is commanded in vs 10 – Ye that love the Lord, hate evil: he preserveth the souls of his saints; he delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked.

  21. The little gods have to bow to our God. It says every knee shall bow and every tongue confess. That means every image or idol will have to bow before Jesus and confess h as Lord. All things shall perish but his word is eternal

  22. 10 Ye that love the Lord, hate evil : he preserveth the souls of his saints ; he delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked. 11 Light is sown for the righteous, and gladness for the upright in heart. 12 Rejoice in the lord, ye righteous ; and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.

  23. 10 Ye that love the Lord, hate evil: he preserveth the souls of his saints; he delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked.
    God has given us a commandment that I we love him we should hate evil… This reminds me of Pastor Watts saying that we should hate the devil and everything that has to do with the devil. Its also nice to know that God delivers us out of the hands of the wicked. He preserves us and will not allow the wicked to prosper in our lives… Surely God is good to us!!!

  24. 1 The Lord reigneth; let the earth rejoice; let the multitude of isles be glad thereof.

    2 Clouds and darkness are round about him: righteousness and judgment are the habitation of his throne.

    3 A fire goeth before him, and burneth up his enemies round about.

    4 His lightnings enlightened the world: the earth saw, and trembled.

    5 The hills melted like wax at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the Lord of the whole earth.

    6 The heavens declare his righteousness, and all the people see his glory.

    Our God is a consuming fire; we can choose to be consumed now or face eternity of consuming hellfire in His absence. Just as worship is not simply an act but a lifestyle, so must being in God’s presence become more than an activity to us. Like we heard preached, we should be afraid when wrong things get consumed away; when people come and hurt us and crucify our flesh, when difficult situations help us gain victory over a bad attitude, etc. Our approach to God is a process where we can continually grow in the lifestyle of being in His presence.

    The choice is ours but NOW is the time to be consumed in God’s presence

    2 Corinthians 6:2
    (For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)

  25. 12 Rejoice in the Lord, ye righteous; and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.

    You don’t know like I know what The Lord has done for me….

  26. This chapter tells us to rejoice and be glad and remember that He is God. Tells us to hate evil. Talks about the greatness of God. The hills melt like wax at His presence. What are then the troubles and cares of this world for our mighty God.

  27. 10 Ye that love the Lord, hate evil: he preserveth the souls of his saints; he delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked.

    We have so many awesome promises from God that cannot be taken lightly. We must live righteously- following his word-submitting to Pastor & holding on through every trial.

  28. Our mission to reach the lost is so imperative. We must help our city out of darkness and to come to know the one true God. NOW.

  29. God’s Hand and Arm
    Vs1

    Reference to God’s “hand” and “arm” are abundant in the OT, paying tribute to the Lord’s mighty acts, his loving protection, authority, guidance and correction. Repeatedly, credit for victory is given not to God’s people, but to the strong “right hand” o fthe Lord (Ex 15:6; Ps 17:7). His right hand is “filled with righteousness” (Ps 48:10) ; his right hand takes hold of his enemies (Ps 21:8); he uses his right hand to “spread out the heavens” (Isa 48:13); his hand holds the scepter of his divine rule (Ps 110:2; Rev 19:15). In the final day, the while earth will see his triumph when he bares his “holy arm,” revealing fully the might of his power (Isa 52:10).

  30. License To Hate

    10 Ye that love the Lord, hate evil: he preserveth the souls of his saints; he delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked.

    11 Light is sown for the righteous, and gladness for the upright in heart.

    Their is only one thing we are commissioned to hate; and that is evil.
    “Abstain from all appearance of evil.” (1 The 5:22). Stay away from and hate evil, therefore we will reap his benefit “he preserveth the souls of his saints; he delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked.” Staying away from the darkness will set us apart as we are called to be. This will make us as to be the bride without spot or wrinkle. We will be identified as His, as His sheep who hear his voice, and not the hateful voice of this world.

  31. Verses 10-12 AMP read:

    “O you who love the Lord, hate evil; He preserves the lives of His saints (the children of God), He delivers them out of the hand of the wicked. Light is sown for the [uncompromisingly] righteous and strewn along their pathway, and joy for the upright in heart [the irrepressible joy which comes from consciousness of His favor and protection]. Rejoice in the Lord, you [consistently] righteous (upright and in right standing with God), and give thanks at the remembrance of His holiness.”
