God HAS all and KNOWS all and GIVES all

This Psalm is certainly one of my favorite: Clear, Straight, and Evangelistic!
Come along with me as we run through a part of this Psalm :

Psalm 50:10-22 (scripture in BOLD)

10 for every animal of the forest is mine, and the cattle on a thousand hills.
11 I know every bird in the mountains, and the creatures of the field are mine.
Obviously GOd is claiming OWNERSHIP of all creation, and also pointing out some things which men would 'sacricifice' to God (If you 'give' someone something they already own, then is it a sacrifice?)
12 If I were hungry I would not tell you, for the world is mine, and all that is in it.
13 Do I eat the flesh of bulls or drink the blood of goats?
God has 'need' of nothing, and beyond that, no one can give Him anything. God makes the point that the 'sacrifices' have nothing to do with His need, but with His point (message).
14 Sacrifice thank offerings to God, fulfill your vows to the Most High,
What then does God ask for? That which is only reasonable, COMPLETE PRAISE and PERFECT INTEGRITY!
15 and call upon me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you will honor me."
"Houston we have a problem!" How exactly can those who are NOT following God's ways, and chose by nature and by pleasure, rebellion (sin)? Only by CRYING out to God for deliverance. When is our 'day of trouble'? It's the DAY we discover that we have sinned against a truly majestic, holy, and just God, it's the day we discover that our sins require payment and that the payment is beyond anything we could ever pay (eternal payment against an eternal God). Our day of trouble is the day we realize that we don't have the ability to save ourselves or to truly follow after God. It's the day that we are awakened to the truth, that Jesus Christ came in the flesh and lived among His creatures, only to suffer and die in their place, it's the truth that Jesus Christ was PUNISHED for our sins, just (justice) wrath was poured upon the Light of the world, and this was done according to plan so that ALL who would repent (turn from sin) and believe (turn to God) in Jesus Christ would receive the benefits of 'grace' (undeserved gift), that grace being a supernatural grace that LITERALLY changes the path (lifestyle, direction, focus, desire) of the believer for eternity! GOd delivers the one who crys out to Him, SWIFTLY and without any hesitation WHATSOEVER, for God DELIGHTS to pour His grace upon those who will LOOK to Jesus Christ! If You are saved, you will change and you will bring Him glory by the works He does in you.
16 But to the wicked, God says: "What right have you to recite my laws or take my covenant on your lips?
However though this grace is abundant, it can't be manipulated, God will not be HUSTLED (mocked). God wants you to be crystal clear on this fact: You CANNOT pick and choose what promises (truths) in scripture you'll take or leave! If you would pretend to believe, but only desire to take Jesus as your savior ('clear my record') but not as your Lord ('Actually lead me') then you are still LOST in your sins (you can't DIVIDE Christ). The wicked have NO claim to the promises that God gives to His children (true Christians), BUT one conditional command 'that if you believe on the Lord Jesus you will be saved'.
17 You hate my instruction and cast my words behind you.
It's OBVIOUS that you HATE God, because you HATE His truth, they are only road blocks in you life.
18 When you see a thief, you join with him; you throw in your lot with adulterers.
19 You use your mouth for evil and harness your tongue to deceit.
20 You speak continually against your brother and slander your own mother's son.
Sin is what you do, and with sinners is where you find 'good' company. A life that is continually joining with wickedness is a life leading to destruction.
21 These things you have done and I kept silent; you thought I was altogether like you. But I will rebuke you and accuse you to your face.
The heart is SO deceitful and the mind is so PRONE to corruption that we ACTUALLY mold God to fit us, we rationalize that if we are not being punished immediately, then we must not be in trouble. 'Clearly', we think '!f things are going this good, then HEY, God must see things the way I see things, YEAH that's IT, God really does understand me, well I'll be sure to thank Him when I get to heaven!' This is the understanding of the fool, we cannot ESCAPE the eyes of God, His silence DOES not mean His blessing, and further more when things are chaotic, and catastrophic that doesn't mean that we are experiencing God's displeasure. The only way we come to a proper view of our standing before God, is by examining our life to the words of the bible.
22 "Consider this, you who forget God, or I will tear you to pieces, with none to rescue:
If you will not FLEE to Christ to save you from your sins, then you are as a child with a toy gun attempting to storm the gates of God's kingdom to your own demise. The only rescue you have, is the One you are currently revolting against! How amazing that the victim, judge, jury, law maker, executioner and prosecutor is the One who will take your place, suffer your punishment, then defend you, pardon you, and ADOPT you for all eternity!
