Today we had a fill in preacher. He brought a message that opened me up to the core. That message was Psalm 137 which is below.
In it the Jews, while in a land foreign to them, had forgotten their songs, their freedoms and had such had hung up their harps on the willows and given up.
The Preacher said that there must be no retreat from the calling that the Lord has laid on our hearts. That no matter what we must fight to restore the Glory.
No retreat, No surrender.
God knew what I needed to hear today. That message did not fall on deaf ears.
So patriots, again we must take our harps from the willow trees and sing our song.
Let the whores of Babylon shake with fear in their beds.
137 By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down, yea, we wept, when we remembered Zion.2 We hanged our harps upon the willows in the midst thereof.
3 For there they that carried us away captive required of us a song; and they that wasted us required of us mirth, saying, Sing us one of the songs of Zion.
4 How shall we sing the Lord's song in a strange land?
5 If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget her cunning.
6 If I do not remember thee, let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth; if I prefer not Jerusalem above my chief joy.
7 Remember, O Lord, the children of Edom in the day of Jerusalem; who said, Raze it, raze it, even to the foundation thereof.
8 O daughter of Babylon, who art to be destroyed; happy shall he be, that rewardeth thee as thou hast served us.
9 Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones.
