Pray For the Peace of Jerusalem






(Music in The Bible)

Psalm 49





Psalm 49[a]

For the director of music. Of the Sons of Korah. A psalm.

1 Hear this, all you peoples;
    listen, all who live in this world,
2 both low and high,
    rich and poor alike:
3 My mouth will speak words of wisdom;
    the meditation of my heart will give you understanding.
4 I will turn my ear to a proverb;
    with the harp I will expound my riddle:

5 Why should I fear when evil days come,
    when wicked deceivers surround me—
6 those who trust in their wealth
    and boast of their great riches?
7 No one can redeem the life of another
    or give to God a ransom for them—
8 the ransom for a life is costly,
    no payment is ever enough—
9 so that they should live on forever
    and not see decay.
10 For all can see that the wise die,
    that the foolish and the senseless also perish,
    leaving their wealth to others.
11 Their tombs will remain their houses[b] forever,
    their dwellings for endless generations,
    though they had[c] named lands after themselves.

12 People, despite their wealth, do not endure;
    they are like the beasts that perish.

13 This is the fate of those who trust in themselves,
    and of their followers, who approve their sayings.[d]
14 They are like sheep and are destined to die;
    death will be their shepherd
    (but the upright will prevail over them in the morning).
Their forms will decay in the grave,
    far from their princely mansions.
15 But God will redeem me from the realm of the dead;
    he will surely take me to himself.
16 Do not be overawed when others grow rich,
    when the splendor of their houses increases;
17 for they will take nothing with them when they die,
    their splendor will not descend with them.
18 Though while they live they count themselves blessed—
    and people praise you when you prosper—
19 they will join those who have gone before them,
    who will never again see the light of life.
20 People who have wealth but lack understanding
    are like the beasts that perish.

Footnotes:

1. Psalm 49:1 In Hebrew texts 49:1-20 is numbered 49:2-21.
2. Psalm 49:11 Septuagint and Syriac; Hebrew In their thoughts their houses will remain
3. Psalm 49:11 Or generations, / for they have

PRAYERS ASCENDING ON HIGH FOR
THE PEACE OF JERUSALEM!
And for the Preservation of the Valiant
Israeli Nation!



EAR this, all ye people; give ear, all ye inhabitants of the world:

2 Both low and high, rich and poor, together.

3 My mouth shall speak of wisdom; and the meditation of my heart shall be of understanding.
4 I will incline mine ear to a parable: I will open my dark saying upon the harp.

5 Wherefore should I fear in the days of evil, when the iniquity of my heels shall compass me about?

6 They that trust in their wealth, and boast themselves in the multitude of their riches;

7 None of them can by any means redeem his brother, nor give to God a ransom for him:

8 (For the redemption of their soul is precious, and it ceaseth for ever:)

9 That he should still live for ever, and not see corruption.

10 For he seeth that wise men die, likewise the fool and the brutish person perish, and leave their wealth to others.

11 Their inward thought is, that their houses shall continue for ever, and their dwelling places to all generations; they call their lands after their own names.

12 Nevertheless man being in honour abideth not: he is like the beasts that perish.

13 This their way is their folly: yet their posterity approve their sayings. Selah.

14 Like sheep they are laid in the grave; death shall feed on them; and the upright shall have dominion over them in the morning; and their beauty shall consume in the grave from their dwelling.

15 But God will redeem my soul from the power of the grave: for he shall receive me. Selah.

16 Be not thou afraid when one is made rich, when the glory of his house is increased;

17 For when he dieth he shall carry nothing away: his glory shall not descend after him.

18 Though while he lived he blessed his soul: and men will praise thee, when thou doest well to thyself.

19 He shall go to the generation of his fathers; they shall never see light.

20 Man that is in honour, and understandeth not, is like the beasts that perish.

They are Orthodox and Catholic, Protestant and Evangelical, Coptic, Pentecostal, and Baptist. To the persecutors, we are all "Nazarenes."

Pray For the Peace of Jerusalem






Sometimes, when I can't sleep, I make lists in my head. A few nights ago, I listed all the schools I attended, jobs I had worked, and places I used to go for entertainment or personal enrichment. Of the 38 places that I could remember, only 3 still exist. Both my Junior High and High School have been turned into housing for the elderly, The companies I worked for in telecommunications have long been dissolved, and the theaters and venues long since torn down and turned into condos and strip-malls. It would take an urban Archaeologist to determine if these once bastions of civilization even existed at all.

The dashing, adventurous figure of Indiana Jones has caused a renewed interest in Biblical Archaeology that is reflected in popular culture and the media. One could argue that the craze is not limited to BIBLICAL Archaeology, but even the relative popularity of the films themselves shows that Biblical artifacts seem to generate more interest than the treasures of other cultures. Movies #1 and #3 were about the Ark of the Covenant and the Cup of Christ respectively. Movies #2 and #4 were about a Hindu artifact and a crystal skull. Both Box Office and Critical Reviews reflect that (unlike the first four Star Trek movies) the odd-numbered films were far better than the even numbered ones.

I include the fascination with Egypt as part of this trend, because Egypt figures very prominently in Scripture, especially the First Five Books. The unearthing of Ancient Egypt is a huge commodity on Cable, along with investigations into Templar Tales, Crusader Ruins, and secret tunnels under The Temple Mount. Even the Oak Island digging is thought to be after some kind of treasure from the Bible, stolen from the Holy Land during the Crusades. The History/Entertainment pundits have even found a way to link The Crusades, Early Native American Empires, The Templars, Christopher Columbus, Pirates of the Caribbean, Nova Scotia, The Founding Fathers, The Freemasons, the Nazi's demented search for artifacts to prove their vile philosophy, and the Street-Plan of Washington DC, into one big bundle that all points to one thing: TREASURE.

Although Archaeology purports to be a search for Truth, it is constantly plagued by "Treasure Hunters". Even the great names associated with Archaeology have been found with secret stashes of unreported TREASURE, which never made it into museums. The two things: Treasure and Power, have motivated a lot of our History, Entertainment, Lore, Legends, and even Political maneuvering throughout the centuries.

And then there are folks who live their lives quietly, working daily to make ends meet, and counting upon God for their sustenance. This is a far greater "treasure" than anything that can be dug up from under the earth. It is more precious than Gold, more powerful than Plutonium, and more satisfying than the fruits of Eden. It is the Presence of God. St. Paul tells us that "We have this Treasure in earthen vessels" (2 Corinthians 4:7) and it is worth more than all the Wealth of Solomon, or even the Wisdom of Our Founding Fathers.

And so, in the last of this Series of Seven Psalms for the Sons of Korah" we are encouraged to NEVER envy those who have more money than we do. Jesus even speaks of this in The Gospel of Matthew, Chapter 16:

…25For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it. 26What will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, yet forfeits his soul? Or what can a man give in exchange for his soul?

And so, in spite of the fact that 35 out of 38 huge, monolithic, institutions of my lifetime have crumbled to dust, these three things remain:

1. I am redeemed by the Blood of The Lamb.

2. I am clothed in HIS Righteousness.

3. I am Accepted in the Beloved.

And that's worth more than all the treasure in the world.

Come and Pray For the Peace of Jerusalem, For Our FRiends in Need, For Persecuted Believers, and For Our Beloved Nation.

"I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world." (John 16:33)
