God's Judgment
"Surely God will bring you down to everlasting ruin: He will snatch you up and tear you from your tent; he will uproot you from the land of the living. Selah"
Psalm 52:5

Verse 5: "Surely God will bring you down to everlasting ruin: He will snatch you up and tear you from your tent; he will uproot you from the land of the living. Selah"

There are 3 things God will surely do: (1) "bring you down to everlasting ruin"; (2) "He will snatch you up and tear you from your tent"; and (3) "uproot you from the land of living."

Eugene Peterson in The Message paraphrases verse 5: "God will tear you limb from limb, sweep you up and throw you out, Pull you up by the roots from the land of life."

It is amazing we have so many historical illustrations of what has just been said here in verse 5. You see with somber seriousness the deaths of Hitler, Saddam Hussein, Osama Bin Laden and others in history who met tragic deaths.

Matthew Henry said: "None so deaf as those who will not hear."

Oswald Chambers said: "God's will is hard only when it comes up against our stubbornness, then it is as cruel as a ploughshare and as devastating as an earthquake."

One old cowboy said: "She is so determined to get her own way she writes her diary in advance."

Jeremiah 6:16: "This is what the Lord says: 'Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls. But you said, "We will not walk in it'""(NIV).

What a different story mankind has to tell when he goes to Calvary and there comes to know Christ as Savior.

2.  Pray: So are the paths of all who forget God; And the hope of the godless will perish. Job 8:13 (NASB)

5.  Praise: But the plans of the Lord stand firm forever, the purposes of His heart through all generations. Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people He chose for his inheritance. Psalm 32:11, 12 (NLT)
Join me in singing "At Calvary":
Years I spent in vanity and pride, Caring not my Lord was crucified,
Knowing not it was for me He died On Calvary.

By God's Word at last my sin I learned; Then I trembled at the law I'd spurned,
Till my guilty soul imploring turned To Calvary.

Now I've giv'n to Jesus ev'rything; Now I gladly own Him as my King;
Now my raptured soul can only sing of Calvary.

O the love that drew salvation's plan! O the grace that brought it down to man!
O the mighty gulf that God did span At Calvary!

Mercy there was great and grace was free; Pardon there was multiplied to me;
There my burdened soul found liberty, At Calvary.
For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)
