A Timely Message
Thoughts and clarification
on Psalm 82.
In this Psalm,
who is the ultimate judge,
is angrily talking to
This psalm reminds
all of us
that God is watching
consequences for evil.
Psalm 82 NKJV
God is in charge of the great meeting;
he judges among the “gods.”
2 He says, “How long will you defend evil people?
How long will you show greater kindness to the wicked? Selah
3 Defend the weak and the orphans;
defend the rights of the poor and suffering.
4 Save the weak and helpless;
free them from the power of the wicked.
5 “You know nothing. You don’t understand.
You walk in the dark, while the world is falling apart.
6 I said, ‘You are “gods.”
You are all sons of God Most High.’
7 But you will die like any other person;
you will fall like all the leaders.”
8 God, come and judge the earth,
because you own all the nations.
To establish who God is angry with,
the 6th verse.
Here is that verse:
'You are gods. You are all sons
of God Most High.'"
This verse is referred to
by Jesus in
Most of the ancient rabbis
understand that the word
in this verse
their earthly judges.
The best explanation I have found
the excellent video posted below.
The first picture on the video
is a little strange
because the man in the video
was formerly in the new age movement
and he wants
others in that movement to listen to him
and hopefully get saved.
The job of these judges was
to represent God.
They were given the power to rule
as God himself would rule.
these powerful "mighty ones"
turned their back on their purpose
and followed their own desires.
