Psalms 49 - AMP

2 Both low and high, rich and poor together: 3 My mouth shall speak wisdom; and the meditation of my heart shall be understanding. 4 I will submit and consent to a parable or proverb; to the music of a lyre I will unfold my riddle (my problem). 5 Why should I fear in the days of evil, when the iniquity of those who would supplant me surrounds me on every side, 6 Even of those who trust in and lean on their wealth and boast of the abundance of their riches? 7 None of them can by any means redeem his brother, nor give to God a ransom for him-- 8 For the ransom of a life is too costly, and can never suffice-- 9 So that he should live on forever and never see the pit (the grave) and corruption. 10 For he sees that even wise men die; the fool and the stupid alike perish and leave their wealth to others. 11 Their inward thought is that their houses will continue forever, and their dwelling places to all generations; they call their lands their own and after their own names. 12 But man, with all his honor and pomp, does not remain; he is like the beasts that perish. 13 This is the fate of those who are foolishly confident, yet after them men approve their sayings. Selah ! 14 Like sheep they are appointed for Sheol (the place of the dead); death shall be their shepherd. And the upright shall have dominion over them in the morning; and their form and beauty shall be consumed, for Sheol shall be their dwelling. 15 But God will redeem me from the power of Sheol (the place of the dead); for He will receive me. Selah ! 16 Be not afraid when one is made rich, when the wealth and glory of his house are increased; 17 For when he dies he will carry nothing away; his glory will not descend after him. 18 Though while he lives he counts himself happy and prosperous, and though a man gets praise when he does well , 19 He will go to the generation of his fathers, who will nevermore see the light. 20 A man who is held in honor and understands not is like the beasts that perish.

I Predict You’re Going To Die
Shared by: Jeff Strite on Jan, 2011
Summary: God doesn’t want us to know WHEN we’re going to die, but He stresses the fact that one day we shall (if Jesus doesn’t return first). Why does God want us to face the reality of our own mortality? Why stress that we will all die?

Detained by the Grave
Shared by: Daniel Olukoya on Apr, 2010
Summary: we pray a lot of prayer points. Some of these prayer points may sound strange to some people. But for those who understand the war going on in the spirit, they are familiar items. For example at MFM, we pray a lot about buried virtues.
