Psalm – Chapter 135: Untitled

Today we have one more chapter in Psalms before heading back to Isaiah.

“Praise the Lord.” – Psalm 135:1

No.

“Praise the Lord, for the Lord is good;” – Psalm 135:3

God is angry and jealous. That is not the same as good.

“The Lord does whatever pleases him,” – Psalm 135:6

Well, that is certainly true! God does indeed do whatever pleases him, including rape and murder.

“He struck down the firstborn of Egypt,” – Psalm 135:8

Yes, God is good by killing the firstborn babies in Egypt. Soooo good.

“He struck down many nations and killed mighty kings—” – Psalm 135:10

More of God being good. Killing.

“Praise the Lord.” – Psalm 135:21

Again, no.

I love how in the same chapter the Bible describes God as good and then a couple of verses later saying he does what he pleases and then kills the firstborn of Egypt. LOL! Good by killing. SMH.

Coming Soon: Isaiah 49: The Servant of the Lord

Psalm – Chapter 80: For the director of music. To the tune of “The Lilies of the Covenant.” Of Asaph. A psalm.

Today we continue with Psalm 80.

“Hear us, Shepherd of Israel, you who lead Joseph like a flock.” – Psalm 80:1

Bad analogy. Good shepherds do not abandon their flock.

“How long, Lord God Almighty, will your anger smolder against the prayers of your people?” – Psalm 80:4

A god who is angry all the time does not love you. This god is an abuser.

“Restore us, Lord God Almighty; make your face shine on us, that we may be saved.” – Psalm 80:19

God leads by fear. Not love. The people are scared of him and begged him to save them. There is no love in this god.

Another chapter in Psalms in which the people are begging to be saved, to be loved. This angry, jealous god does not love them.

2 Samuel 12:24

It’s Crazy Bible Verse Tuesday and Today’s verse is on the topic of sex.

“Then David comforted his wife Bathsheba, and he went to her and made love to her. She gave birth to a son, and they named him Solomon.” – 2 Samuel 12:24

At first glance there is nothing wrong with this verse. Set aside the fact David had multiple wives and concubines, it is perfectly normal for a husband and wife to have sex and become pregnant. The difference here is the context. This is immediately after their son is killed. David has sex with his wife to comfort her over her dead son. For fuck’s sake. Making a baby isn’t the same as picking out the next dog when yours dies. Biblical romance. 🙂

Psalm – Chapter 46: For the director of music. Of the Sons of Korah. According to alamoth. A song.

Today we switch over to Psalm, taking a close look at the 46th chapter. 

“God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.” – Psalm 46:1

After awhile it gets old saying this, but the Bible clearly shows that God is only present when he chooses to be, which is usually only when it is convenient for the male authors of the Bible.

“Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam  and the mountains quake with their surging.” – Psalm 46:2-3

Show me a person who isn’t afraid in the middle of a large earthquake and I’ll show you a liar.

“Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall; he lifts his voice, the earth melts.” – Psalm 46:6

In an attempt to supposedly help the people, God melts the earth, completely forgetting that he created humans who can’t swim in lava. 🙂

“Come and see what the Lord has done, the desolations he has brought on the earth.” – Psalm 46:8

God’s desolations are supposed to convince us that God is good?

“He makes wars cease to the ends of the earth.” – Psalm 46:9

Sorry, but you can’t receive credit for fixing what you knowingly caused.

“The Lord Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress.” – Psalm 46:11

Are you sure about that because it doesn’t seem like it!

In this chapter God has melted the Earth and ended all the wars he started. Yay? I guess? 🙂 Maybe the people of biblical times floated in lava and didn’t burn. Hmmm….

Coming Soon: Psalm – Chapter 80: For the director of music. To the tune of “The Lilies of the Covenant.” Of Asaph. A psalm.

2 Kings – Chapter 19: Jerusalem’s Deliverance Foretold

We continue in the book of 2 Kings today.

“When King Hezekiah heard this, he tore his clothes and put on sackcloth and went into the temple of the Lord.” – 2 Kings 19:1

I’ll never understand the tearing of clothes in the Bible. I’ve gotten mad before, but ripping my clothes off has never crossed my mind.

“And Hezekiah prayed to the Lord: ‘Lord, the God of Israel, enthroned between the cherubim, you alone are God over all the kingdoms of the earth. You have made heaven and earth. Give ear, Lord, and hear; open your eyes, Lord, and see; listen to the words Sennacherib has sent to ridicule the living God.’” – 2 Kings 19:15-16

Makes sense. I know I pray to God when I’ve ripped my clothes. Have never ripped them intentionally but there are times where my shirt might catch on something and rip or I may spill something and I shout out “God dammit!!!” LOL!

“Because you rage against me and because your insolence has reached my ears, I will put my hook in your nose and my bit in your mouth, and I will make you return by the way you came.’” – 2 Kings 19:28

Don’t ever cross God because he will FUCK YOU UP!

“This will be the sign for you, Hezekiah: ‘This year you will eat what grows by itself,   and the second year what springs from that. But in the third year sow and reap,  plant vineyards and eat their fruit.” – 2 Kings 19:29

Plant your crops by my commands and I will save you from this army? Wow.

“That night the angel of the Lord went out and put to death a hundred and eighty-five thousand in the Assyrian camp. When the people got up the next morning—there were all the dead bodies!” – 2 Kings 19:35

God kills more people.

“One day, while he was worshiping in the temple of his god Nisrok, his sons Adrammelek and Sharezer killed him with the sword, and they escaped to the land of Ararat. And Esarhaddon his son succeeded him as king.” – 2 Kings 19:37

This refers to the King of Assyria. God has the ability to bring peace, but he refuses, preferring war, death, and destruction.

Is it possible for the lands to achieve peace? Yes, toss God out for he is the bringing of war.

2 Kings – Chapter 18:9-37: Hezekiah King of Judah

Today we take a break from Isaiah and move back to 2 Kings where Hezekiah is now king.

“In King Hezekiah’s fourth year, which was the seventh year of Hoshea son of Elah king of Israel, Shalmaneser king of Assyria marched against Samaria and laid siege to it. At the end of three years the Assyrians took it. So Samaria was captured in Hezekiah’s sixth year, which was the ninth year of Hoshea king of Israel. The king of Assyria deported Israel to Assyria and settled them in Halah, in Gozan on the Habor River and in towns of the Medes. This happened because they had not obeyed the Lord their God, but had violated his covenant—all that Moses the servant of the Lord commanded. They neither listened to the commands nor carried them out.” – 2 Kings 18:9-12

War is taking place based on who is and isn’t obeying God.

“Furthermore, have I come to attack and destroy this place without word from the Lord? The Lord himself told me to march against this country and destroy it.” – 2 Kings 18:25

God is not peace.

“But the commander replied, ‘Was it only to your master and you that my master sent me to say these things, and not to the people sitting on the wall—who, like you, will have to eat their own excrement and drink their own urine?’” – 2 Kings 18:27

This isn’t my favorite verse in the Bible but it ranks in the top ten! You will have to eat your own shit and drink your own piss. LOL!

“Do not listen to Hezekiah, for he is misleading you when he says, ‘The Lord will deliver us.’” – 2 Kings 18:32

This is a pissing match to see who loves God the most.

That concludes this chapter. There is a battle on who loves God the most and who God will support, along with some trash talk about eating your own shit and drinking your own piss. ROFL!
