Proverbs 1:2 Seeking the Face of His Understanding - Waiting for Eternal Justice

Reader comment on item: Palestinian Statehood Is Acceptable … Eventually
in response to reader comment: Eternal justice.

Submitted by M Tovey (United States), May 31, 2017 at 16:02

Not being understood is the litmus test that I measure how the rest is understood. All that this means is that not everyone has even tried to assimilate some of these thoughts, let alone actually come to some understanding; though there are times some have alluded they might concur, or at least concede some element of understanding.

To your counter remarks, eternal justice for Israel in the face of her enemy is just eternal moments away, not in the timing as mankind understands it, but as it is written, as the Eternal Sovereign has designated it. Psalm 27 now enters this view:

A Psalm of David.
The LORD is my light and my salvation;
Whom shall I fear?
The LORD is the defense of my life;
Whom shall I dread?
When evildoers came upon me to devour my flesh,
My adversaries and my enemies, they stumbled and fell.
Though a host encamp against me,
My heart will not fear;
Though war arise against me,
In spite of this I shall be confident.
One thing I have asked from the LORD, that I shall seek:
That I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life,
To behold the beauty of the LORD
And to meditate in His temple.
For in the day of trouble He will conceal me in His tabernacle;
In the secret place of His tent He will hide me;
He will lift me up on a rock.
And now my head will be lifted up above my enemies around me,
And I will offer in His tent sacrifices with shouts of joy;
I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to the LORD.
Hear, O LORD, when I cry with my voice,
And be gracious to me and answer me.
When You said, "Seek My face," my heart said to You,
"Your face, O LORD, I shall seek."
Do not hide Your face from me,
Do not turn Your servant away in anger;
You have been my help;
Do not abandon me nor forsake me,
O God of my salvation!
For my father and my mother have forsaken me,
But the LORD will take me up.
Teach me Your way, O LORD,
And lead me in a level path
Because of my foes.
Do not deliver me over to the desire of my adversaries,
For false witnesses have risen against me,
And such as breathe out violence.
I would have despaired unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the LORD
In the land of the living.
Wait for the LORD;
Be strong and let your heart take courage;
Yes, wait for the LORD.
