Psalms 51.......Restoration Prayer
« on: Tue Dec 23, 2008 - 12:24:08 »
This Prayer for 'restoration' back to God, can be applied to anyone....who committs any sin.

Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions. 

  51:2   Wash me thoroughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin. 

  51:3   For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin [is] ever before me. 

  51:4   Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done [this] evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, [and] be clear when thou judgest.
  51:5   Behold, I was shapen in iniquity, and in sin did my mother conceive me. 

  51:6   Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden [part] thou shalt make me to know wisdom. 

  51:7   Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow. 

  51:8   Make me to hear joy and gladness; [that] the bones [which] thou hast broken may rejoice. 

  51:9   Hide thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine iniquities. 

  51:10   Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me. 

  51:11   Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me. 

  51:12  Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me [with thy] free spirit.

Here is exactly the RESTORATION envisioned by The Campbellls as The Church of Christ: Sabbath means REST and in Greek is PAUO which most often means STOP the speaking, STOP the singing, STOP the music: stop the affliction of people.

Is. 58:1 Cry aloud, spare not,
        lift up thy voice like a trumpet, [Always a judgmental warning]
        and shew my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins.
Is. 58:2 Yet they seek me daily,
        and delight to know my ways,
             as a nation that did righteousness,
             and forsook not the ordinance of their God:
        they ask of me the ordinances of justice;
        hey take delight in approaching to God.

Is. 58:3 Wherefore have we fasted, say they, and thou seest not?
        wherefore have we afflicted our soul,

    Afflicted means: Browbeating with responsive singing.

        and thou takest no knowledge?
        Behold, in the day of your fast
                ye find pleasure,  [Outlawed for the synagogue Rom 15]
                and exact all your labours.  [in Tithes and offerings]

Is. 58:4 Behold, ye fast for strife and debate, [Outlawed as doubtful disputations out of your own mind]
        and to smite with the fist of wickedness:  [Clap to disturb]
             ye shall NOT fast as ye do this day,
             to make your voice to be heard on high
.  [noise, proclamation, singing]

Is. 58:5 Is it such a fast that I have chosen?
        a day for a man to afflict his soul? [Sing in the HEART]
        is it to bow down his head as a bulrush,
        and to spread sackcloth and ashes under him?
        wilt thou call this a fast, [close the mouth]
        and an acceptable day to the LORD?

Is. 58:6 Is not this the fast that I have chosen?
        to loose the bands of wickedness,
        to undo the heavy burdens,
        and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke?

Is. 58:7 Is it not to deal thy bread to the hungry, [Not fleece the widows and working people]
        and that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house?
        when thou seest the naked, that thou cover him;
        and that thou hide not thyself from thine own flesh?

Is. 58:8 Then shall thy light break forth as the morning,
        and thine health shall spring forth speedily:
        and thy righteousness shall go before thee; [Instead of OFF LIMITS in the Temple]
        the glory of the LORD shall be thy rereward.

Is. 58:9 Then shalt thou call, and the LORD shall answer; thou shalt cry, and he shall say, Here I am.
        If thou take away from the midst of thee the yoke,
        the putting forth of the finger, and speaking vanity;

Is. 58:10 And if thou draw out thy soul to the hungry,
        and satisfy the afflicted soul; [afflicted by shouting, singing]
        then shall thy light rise in obscurity, and thy darkness be as the noonday:

Is. 58:11 And the LORD shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones:
        and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not.

Is. 58:12 And they that shall be of thee
        shall build the old waste places:
        thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generations; [Instead of denouncing them]
        and thou shalt be called,
                The repairer of the breach,
                The restorer of paths to dwell in.
                Loudly ridiculed by the burden laders

Is. 58:13 If thou turn away thy foot from the sabbath,
        from doing thy pleasure on my holy day;
        and call the sabbath a delight, the holy of the LORD, honourable; and shalt honour him,
                not doing thine own ways,
                nor finding thine own pleasure,
                nor speaking thine own words:

        The NEVER-MUSICAL passages demand speaking "that which is written" and "teaching that which has been taught."

Is. 58:14 Then shalt thou delight thyself in the LORD;
        and I will cause thee to ride upon the high places of the earth,
        and feed thee with the heritage of Jacob thy father:
        for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.

That was UNIQUELY the goals of the Campbells.  Jesus identified the false teachers as hypocrites:

Ezek. 33:30 Also, thou son of man, the children of thy people still are talking against thee by the walls
      and in the doors of the houses, and speak one to another, every one to his brother,
      saying, Come, I pray you, and hear what is the word that cometh forth from the LORD.
Ezek. 33:31 And they come unto thee as the people cometh,
      and they sit before thee as my people, and they hear thy words, but they will not do them:
      for with their mouth they shew much love,
            but their heart goeth after their covetousness.


Ezek. 33:32 And, lo, thou art unto them
      as a very lovely song of one that hath a pleasant voice,
       and can play well on an instrument:
             for they hear thy words, but they do them not.

Ezek. 33:33 And when this cometh to pass, (lo, it will come,)
      then shall they know that a prophet hath been among them.
