PSALM 50 “If I were hungry, I would not tell thee: for the world is mine, and the fulness thereof” (Ps. 50:12). Have you ever wondered why the Lord told us to give to Him? It’s not because He needs it. This is what He says in Psalm 50. He tells the people that He isn’t going to eat their sacrifices. He owns all the cattle on a thousand hills. What did He need their sacrifices for? If God was hungry, would He look to us to satisfy Him? Certainly not! Then why did He ask for the sacrifices?Why does He ask us to give if He’s not in need? God doesn’t want Sunday-only Christians who give Him only an hour or two per week. He loves us and wants to be involved in every part of our lives. We spend the majority of our time earning a living. How does He get involved in that part of our lives?.
Jesus commanded us to go into the world and preach the gospel to every creature and he told us that he that believed and is baptized shall be saved. It means through baptism we express our beliefs.
Prepare to meet your God
Therefore thus will I do unto thee, O Israel: and because I will do this unto thee, prepare to meet thy God, O Israel.These were days of outward prosperity in Israel, but from a spiritual standpoint, these were terrible times.
