Psalm 23 – a prophetic utterance

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. (Like a shepherd God took care of His son Jesus during the earthly ministry; like a shepherd He’ll take care of you now in the body of Christ)

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. (Christ had perfect peace in His heart for 33 years – Christians have the same peace on Earth)

He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. (Christ was born of a virgin and clothed with humanity, He was without spot and sinless. Those who accept Christ are restored and led by the Spirit)

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. (Christ endured hardships and died a miserable death of crucifixion, but the authority of God was behind Him every step of the way. Jesus was confident and trusted the Father in every adverse situation He encountered. The Rod and staff represent authority)

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. (Oil represents God’s ownership. Jesus was anointed of God with the Holy Spirit and became a High priest after the order of Melchizedek. When you are God’s property nothing can harm you)

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever. (God’s mercy works through His ministers; Jesus was eternal and so is the child of God)

About rickroehm

Since 1988 I’ve been writing and doing service for the Lord. It all began in 1987 after a personal walk began with the Lord. This personal walk with the Lord I speak of turned into extensive Bible studies and later evolved into blogging in early 2000. At present I write, author, and publish several different sites on the Internet. My Blogs contain a vast library of Theological writings, teaching videos, and preaching audios that currently go around the globe for the cause of Christ. I write at Christian Blessings on Wordpress, Holy Hubert Lindsey Group on Facebook, Churches on Trial at Google, publish You Tube videos, record sermons at holy.sermon.net, etc. I also pastor a Church called the Upper Room in Williamsburg, Ohio . My secular Blog called Southwestern Ohio Fishing on Wordpress is where I write about experiences with my son and fishing partner Chad where we together enjoy Mother Nature’s beauty mixed with Father God’s creation. At Southwestern Ohio Fishing Blog I also publish favorite recipes for those who enjoy eating and cooking as much as this writer does. Thanks for sharing your time and life with this writer at the Blogs. Here's more access to my ministry and fishing Blog if you'd care to check them out further.
