Psalm 19 Pt. III

Review

Psalm 19: 1-6 – General Revelation

 Powerless Living – God stays out in the universe

 Compromised Values – No standard to measure against

 Distortion of Truth – Create a God we can manage

Psalm 19: 7-10 – Specific Revelation

 Law is perfect converting the soul

 Statutes are right rejoicing the heart

 Testimony is sure making wise the simple

 Commandments are pure enlightening the eyes

 Fear of the Lord is clean enduring forever

 Judgements are true and righteous altogether

In them we find out His will and what He expects of us

Psalm 19: 10-11 – Transitional Truth

 They need to be desired more than gold

 In keeping them we are warned and rewarded

As we allow the word to get into us we go from a

Specific Revelation – knowing what God expects to a

Spiritual Revelation - Understanding how it works

Psalm 19:12 – 14 – Spiritual Revelation

James 1: 13-15 – birth of sin

1. Who can understand his error

2. Cleanse me from my secret fault

1. Keep back thy servant from presumptuous sin

Every sin has in it the very venom of rebellion

Keep Back – restrain, withhold, restrain, spare, preserve

hold back, keep in check

Presumptuous – arrogant, proud, insolent

 It’s showing it’s visible to others that

1. Some things growing

2. Some one’s showing

Hidden sin boiled over. You know exactly what your doing and to a certain degree not caring.

 The conviction is callused over hardening of the heart is setting in.

 We have justified ourselves to remove the guilt.

 As humans we have to be justified in anything we continue to do or the guilt will not allow us to enjoy it.

 We are in deception.

 We have reworked and interpreted the scriptures to approve or at least permit the activity because of the state or situation we are in.

 We find solace and acceptance in the perversion of this truth “God loves me just as I am.”

 It is at this stage we find that human emotions can be stronger than our convictions and what we esteem as our foundational beliefs.

 It is amazing how we feel we are an exception to the Scriptural rule when in this condition.

 According to the law this type of sin was punishable by death. Numbers 15: 30

Presumptuous Sin has one or more of these elements to it

1. Sin committed willfully against manifest light and knowledge

 Our own conscience

 Admonition of family and friends

 Voice of God

 Circumstances of life speaking to you

 Watching others

 God fingers it in your life

 Your own oaths and vows

Walking out on thin ice

 Tell yourself

 Inner voice tells you

 Others tell you

 You’ve heard and seen others

 You venture out yourself but instead of retreating at the sound of cracking ice you continue. It won’t happen to you!

 You fall through rescued and delivered you vow to yourself I will never do that again

 Only to find you once again venturing out thinking this time it will be different. ISANITY!

Playing with our eternal destiny for a moment’s worth of pleasure. Proverbs 6: 27-28

2. Deliberation

 The lust that tempts is not a passer-by but a lodger at home.

3. Matter of design

 Deliberation of the sin has the motive of throwing it in the face of God

4. Through a hardihood of fancied strength of mind

 I know how far I can go

 I’m not like those

 I can handle it

 Pride has fed our ego that we think we can go just far enough not to prevent ruin

Keep back thy servant from presumptuous sin!

Curb your servant, keep him back or he will wander to

the edge of the precipice of sin

4. Let them not have dominion over me.

Dominion – jurisdiction, govern, to reign, to be superior

in power, authority, and dominion as a

governor

 Not only has sin taken root and is very visible and it’s apparent we’ve been eating the fruit that it has produced. It now controls us when at a time we felt we could control it.

 It governs our life and dictates to us

 It is a stronghold that now is interfering with our spiritual growth and gifts.

 We find ourselves stagnating or even going backwards in our walk.

 It seems we can’t get out from underneath its grip.

 We need deliverance or else we will come under the total domination of sin. II Peter 2: 18 – 22

 Sin now has gone from a disobedient act to a deep-seated strong hold that has perverted our thinking, distorted our beliefs and changed our personality.
