Book 1 – Psalm 14 of 41: The Living Christ

So the fool continues to speak and speak and speak; whereas the LORD seems to have remained silent in the previous chapters, but the words spoken by Him are like pure honey and nectar. “There is no God” – there is no other word which could be more corrupt and more abominable. Can the Spirit-less man understand? Can the corrupt men, who have joined together, do good? Can they have knowledge which comes from above (c.f. James 3) so that they can call upon the LORD? Can those who shame the plans of the poor thrive? Perhaps, in the meantime, that is the illusion – but this is their reward. Their temporary plunder, their mutual affirmation, their self-congratulation. But salvation will come out of Zion, He will restore our fortunes, and we shall rejoice truly as we inherit the earth (c.f. Matthew 5) and embrace the Living One who has given us the eyes, ears and heart to understand Him.
