"Thy wife shall be as a FRUITFUL VINE by the sides of thy house." Psalm 128:3a

A New Song                                      the book of Psalms
Just a Grape                                       from K. Maskey

A New Song

"He hath put a new song in my mouth," Psalm 40:3

Psalm 33:3 Psalm 40:3 Psalm 96:1 Psalm 96:2
Psalm 98:1 Psalm 144:9 Psalm 149:1 Isaiah 42:10

The Psalms are the new songs we can sing unto the Lord. The book of Psalms can be divided into 5 sections of 30 Psalms each.  God has planned it so there are enough Psalms in each section to read one Psalm everyday for a month. Let these new songs minister to your Spirit throughout this month and the coming year. Allow these songs to change your daily walk. Don't just mouth the words as a very lovely song, pleasant to the ears; but allow them to repair, rebuild, restore, and renew your spirit.

A suggested schedule for filling yourselves with song:

January Psalm 1 - 30 February Psalm 31 - 60
March Psalm 61 - 90 April Psalm 91 - 120
May Psalm 120 - 150 June Psalm 1 - 30
July Psalm 31 - 60 August Psalm 61 - 90
September Psalm 91 - 120 October Psalm 121 - 150
November Psalm 1 - 30 December Psalm 31 - 60

JUST A GRAPE...

We are going to start a new little item where you can share a tidbit from the Lord. The first item comes from K. Maskey, Ohio.

A grape can taste very good! It is a pretty color, and shape. They are so juicy when you eat them ...mmmm. But sometimes there are seeds in the grapes. This can be annoying. If you forget about the seeds and you take a bite of them, they can make the whole grape seem bitter. Maybe even to the point where you shy away from eating grapes again.

We need to learn to spit out the seeds and enjoy the rest of the grape.

When someone speaks something from the Word it could be colorful and juicy and sweet as a grape. But we need to discern what is spoken by the Spirit and learn to spit out the seeds that mar the flavor of the true Word.

A New Year, A New Month, A Time of Repair

A Very Lovely Song

"And, lo, thou art unto them as a very lovely song of one that hath a pleasant voice; and can play well on an instrument: for they hear thy words but they do them not." Ezekiel 33:32

Ezekiel states that those who come into God's sanctuary are only coming to hear a very lovely song. These show much love with their mouths, but their hearts go after their own covetousness.

Has God's Word become just a very lovely song in the church with no meaning? Are there silly women sitting in the church, just listening to empty, vain, babblings that tickle the ears?

"For the time will come when they shall not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears." II Timothy 4:3

"For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with diverse lusts,

Ever learning, and never able to come to the truth. Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away." II Timothy 3:6-7 and 5

Are you, as the silly women who have itching ears, going to church to hear only a very lovely song. The warning is clear to turn away from those who only have a form of godliness.

Are you listening to vain janglings?

Hear God's Word

"...Some having swerved have turned aside unto vain jangling; desiring to be teachers of the law;   understanding neither what they say, nor whereof they affirm. I Timothy 1:6,7

"Go from the presence of a foolish man, when thou perceivest not in him the lips of knowledge." Proverbs 14:7

"Refuse profane and old wives' fables, and exercise thyself rather unto godliness." I Timothy 4:7

"Shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness." II Timothy 2:16

"Keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so-called:" I Timothy 6:20

Vain babblings are empty discussions of vain and useless matters; words that do not produce life-changing actions in the hearer. Are the teachings you are hearing bringing life to your spirit? If not, God's Word is clear: "From such turn away!"      as shown to J. Kirkpatrick

THE WATCHMEN ON THE WALL
by J. Glasco, Nebraska

You will write of the watchmen on the wall,
The ones that I've called.

I've raised up watchmen across the land
Those whose footsteps were not designed by self or man.

These men of the Spirit give a trumpet blast
On life's highways and by-ways where they can be heard,
So that the whole world will know
Of the oncoming judgments of the apocalyptic herd.

The trumpet blast is coming forth in many forms -
Radio, TV, newsletters, and some shepherds sound the alarm.
I have made the sound loud and plain this hour -
Only a deaf and deceived Christian would not hear this horn.

Satanic interruptions keep My people from hearing
Of coming cataclysmic events;
Eyes are fixated on cares and crumbling structures
That crumble and fall -

As the watchmen view from the wall.
