Sermon for June 24th 2018
Psalm 1 of King David by Rev. Esther R. Scott
Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of Sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his Delight is in the law of the Lord and in his law does he meditate day and night and he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water that brings forth its fruit in his season his Leaf also shall not wither and whatsoever he does shall prosper the ungodly are not so but like a chaff which the wind drives away therefore the ungodly shall not stand in judgement nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous for the Lord knows the way of the righteous but the way of the ungodly Shall Perish.
David speaks here of saints and sinners. He is speaking of the Blessed ones and he is also speaking about evil Council and evil Associates. He says in verse 1 that you will be blessed if you do not walk in the counsel of the ungodly. This means that we have to watch who we hang around and listen to.
There is so much going on in the world everybody has an opinion. We have to listen to the still small voice of our creator, and if we don't know how, it's time to begin to learn how to listen to his voice. God speaks to us on a daily basis and some people don't even realize that he speaking to them. This is the purpose of getting into the word and studying it daily.
There are many ministers in this world, but all ministers are not for the kingdom of the most high God. Some of them are ministering for themselves and trying to attract people to their ministry instead of Jesus. It’s all about numbers. I’ve had so many people invite me to their events out of numbers instead of love, it’s not funny. They never cared about me, spoke to me, had a cup of coffee or tea with me but they needed my presence to boost their numbers. They wouldn’t give me a sandwich if I were starving. I had one call me a “Bag Lady” and another said I’d never preach in his pulpit because I was a woman, and he said it to the congregation!
Anywhooo, I would never say that everyone who cannot say big words or dress in expensive clothes are not of the kingdom of God, and vice versa, because God tells us not to judge by what we see. I am sure that when Prophet Samuel saw little David out in the fields on those mountains and hills shepherding the sheep, David couldn’t have looked like a GQ Model with a Lamb attache’ case and Stacey Adams sandals. Sometimes those people who look good do not have good hearts. And those who are not so attractive maybe the ones that God has sent into your life. Everything That Glitters Is Not Gold amen?
David also speaks here in Verse 1, that we should not sit in the seat of the scornful. That means that we should not be with Cynics. Outright mean people, scorners. These are the people that will tell you, that you will not go to heaven unless you do silly works. These are the people that tell you that you must pay them to be holy and you must do exactly what they tell you to do to get into heaven. These are the people that say that you cannot play cards, dance or enjoy your life. Even Jesus danced the Hora during parties and weddings. He kept up with Jewish laws while He was on the Earth. That’s why you keep seeing that He “was in the temple on the Sabbath.” That’s what that meant. The religious are the ones who believe that children should stay in their place and cannot preach. They are the ones who don't believe in shaking a tambourine or speaking in tongues or saying ‘amen’ in their churches.
Proverbs 1:15 says "my son walk not in the way with them refrain thy foot from their path." And if you read the scriptures above that, you will see that he is talking about people who entice others and they lurk privately for the innocent without cause. These kind just want to hurt someone that's how they get their kicks. They are the ones that will rob you of your sleep so that your body can't get any peace and heal and receive directions from The Lord at night. They are the grave robbers and the thieves. They are those who sit up so late at night hoping to find a way to make their lives easier instead of going through Jesus Christ the Savior. They are the magicians, the warlocks and the witches that go against the word of God, always looking for their own sources and their own way. And don't let them fool you some of them are disguised as the Sheep of the most high and they play it off pretty well. Some of them sit beside you in church, some of them call you on the phone. They are the ones who follow you on Social Media saying, “amen” to some of your posts. They smile in your face and secretly wish death on your family.
Verse 2 tells us that our happiness and our Delight should be in the law of the Lord his word is true his word is life. And in his law we should meditate day and night. This means to think about God as many times as you can during the day because when you think about him you are blessed that is scriptural. When you think about God - God thinks about you. When he is on your mind you are on his mind. God lives in you he listens to you he loves you and he watches you. So whenever you need him and for any reason keep them in your heart, keep his word in your heart. The Bible says the word is Jesus and Jesus is the word.
Verse 3 days, if you do keep His commandments and His Word, God will put you beside spiritual rivers and you will have spiritual fruit that you know not of. You will reap where you have not sewn and live when generational curses say that you should die. It says you will be like a tree planted by the rivers of the water. That means he will put you where you will flourish. When your roots grow, they will not dry up but will grow towards the waters that God put there hundreds or even thousands of years ago for it to be able to drink. And your leaves will not come out until it is time for them to come out. Everything will be a timely event in your life. Your leaves will never wither and you will always be healthy spiritually, physically and emotionally. Whatever you lay your hands to will prosper. You will have an unfading life (see Psalms 92:14). You will bless those around you and you also will get blessed. People will see that you are blessed by the most high God. They will trust you and come to you and they will know that the answers that they get from you will be from Heaven itself because you have Heaven inside of you.
As much as people hate to talk about it in the religious Realm, will have excellent outstanding prosperity and people will see it, just like Abraham, David, Job, Joseph, and Esther. Your haters will hate but those that care about you will enjoy your blessings with you. When God blesses you please remember this, you cannot tell everybody. There are blood sucking Joy-stealing energy vampires waiting to drain you dry. Every time you snap a pic of your family at a park or sitting at an expensive dinner table somewhere, they’ll inbox you for money. Every new car, every new thing that God blesses you with, in their minds, you must share it with them. I was talking to a woman a few weeks ago who said that she means no harm but she just can’t give away every blessing that God gives her. She was going through the same thing. Those blood-sucking demons were using someone to snatch the blessings out of her hand before she could enjoy them! Have you ever had that happen to you? I did. My daughter and I like to put our cooking on Facebook and for a while there, I was afraid to do it because every time we did, someone would inbox me to help their orphanage or send them boxes of food. And I am not just talking about far away countries doing this either! (So we joined a cooking club instead.)
Get a witness, a friend a like-minded Christian to walk with you along the path:
The Bible says where two or three are gathered together God will be in the midst of them. But they must be of his Spirit only. Oil and water do not mix. Neither does dark and Light. When you mix dark and light you getting gray and Jesus did not come in a gray form. Anything that comes to you in a gray form is a mixture and that is not of God. Demons are described as “Grays” or “Aliens.” They’ve been sited at various places by various people. They exist. The bible says that Jesus is Light….period. A double-minded anything is unstable in all of its, his, or her way. Matthew 17:2 and Mark 9:2 speaks of Jesus being transfigured and He was of the whitest light-he was not gray. It says his face did shine as the Sun and his raiment was white as the light. Even His Angels are the same. See Matthew 28.
The Women at the Grave:
1 In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre.
2 And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it.
3 His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow:
4 And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men.
5 And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified.
6 He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.
As long as it seems that the ungodly may be around you or in your life right now there will come a time when they will pay their dues and God will blow them away like the chaff in the Wind. Pardon me for using this term but did you ever see a “dust devil”? The dust is so light in a certain place on the ground that as you walk by the wind blows it and it looks like a miniature tornado. That is what your enemies are going to look like as God scatters them away from you. Circles of confusion. (That sounds like a good book or a rock band!) That is what's going to happen to the ungodly that think right now that no one can tell that they are ungodly. God gave His children discernment and we can smell them a mile away. You will stand there and watch them twirling around in the breath of the most high God as he sends them to dry places never to return to his children ever again. When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none. (Matthew 12:43)
You my Godly friend will witness their true insecurities that they try to hide from you. It’s so sad how witches and the like think that we don’t know who they are and why they are around us. Just makes you want to shake your head. Keep praying and covering yourself with the Blood of Jesus and happily use His name whenever you feel like it. He will love you for it. Verse 5 says that the ungodly will not stand in the judgment. That means that they will not make it through the great white throne judgement and the Book of Revelation,
11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.
12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.
14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
Even though the evil ones to sit with you in this lifetime because they know that you are the true power, they will not be able to sit in the congregation of the righteous when the new Heaven and a new Earth appear. They have no place in the family of God. They were ruined through their own reprobate Minds. Please see Matthew 25:31 to 46.
Are you saved?
Say, “Jesus, please forgive me for all of my sins. I accept you as my Savior, my big brother, my Lord and my guide. Thank you Lord for saving me. Teach me your ways. Amen.
If you said that WELCOME to the family of God! Go find a bible believing, tongue-talking church and learn of Him. It’s never too late.

Jesus is ALWAYS Lord !
