Psalms 27: “Whom Shall I Fear?”

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

When we consider God’s promises it is important to remember they do not necessarily apply to everyone. Rather, they apply to those who love our Father, those who seek after Him and those who accomplish the tasks required of us in His Word. “And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose,” (Romans 8:28).

The next element is to understand what God’s promises are. God Himself has said, “Put me in remembrance: let us plead together: declare thou, that thou mayest be justified,” (Isaiah 43:26). God is saying, tell Me what My promises are so I may Bless you with them. God knows what His promises are, but He wants to see if you know them or not.

As we move deeper into these end times we need to secure ourselves in His Word. We need to seek out those promises and ask our Father to shower them upon us. One of those promises are of His protection. “Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness,” (Isaiah 41:10).

Our Father helped the three in the fiery furnace that was heated seven times hotter than necessary (Daniel 3:14-30), while the Israelites were not harmed by the plagues of Egypt. Neither did the flood of Noah’s time have any effect on him or his family.

Friends, there is also a flood fast approaching in our time, not of water, but of lies and deception. We must equip ourselves with the whole armour of God in order to fight this battle (Ephesians 6:10-18). As our brothers in the past were protected by God, so will we (1 Corinthians 10:11).

Daniel 12:1 tells us,

There shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.“

We are not talking about some secret club. Everyone has an opportunity to place their name into that book of life. We can accomplish that by the actions we take which is ultimately taking a stand for our Father. We must understand and remember no matter how bad the Tribulation gets, our Father is there with us every step of the way.

Though I walk in the midst of trouble, you preserve my life; you stretch out your hand against the wrath of my enemies, and your right hand delivers me,” (Psalm 138:7).

God is our defense, one that cannot be defeated (Psalms 59:16). God’s Right Hand will deliver you if you listen to His instruction. There should be no doubt in your mind about that.

Let us now read,

Psalms 27:1-3
1  “A Psalm of David. The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?”

2 “When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell.”

3 “Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident”

It is extremely important to understand, “all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come, ” (1 Corinthians 10:11). As they were protected, so will we.

Psalms 27:4-5
4 “One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to enquire in his temple.”

5 “For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock.”

We just read of that time of trouble in Daniel 12:1. That time of trouble will ultimately be the Tribulation of Satan. But our protection will be that Rock who is Christ (1 Corinthians 10:4).

Psalms 27:6
6 “And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me: therefore will I offer in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the LORD.” 

Our head will rise above our enemies as the ark of Noah did.

Psalms 27:7-8
7 “Hear, O LORD, when I cry with my voice: have mercy also upon me, and answer me.”

8 “When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, Thy face, LORD, will I seek.”

Always seek God’s face, during the good and bad times. Make Him a part of your life, without Him we are nothing.

Psalms 27:9-11
9 “Hide not thy face far from me; put not thy servant away in anger: thou hast been my help; leave me not, neither forsake me, O God of my salvation.”

10 “When my father and my mother forsake me, then the LORD will take me up.”

11 “Teach me thy way, O LORD, and lead me in a plain path, because of mine enemies.”

There will come a time when Satan’s One World Beast Government will reign on the earth. It will be then when you will agree with your enemies “in the way” (Matthew 5:25). This does not mean you accept Satan or take part in his Beast Government. You simply walk the plain path that your Father will guide you on.

Psalms 27:12-14
12 “Deliver me not over unto the will of mine enemies: for false witnesses are risen up against me, and such as breathe out cruelty.”

13 “I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.”

14 “Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.”

  1. Thank you Brandon for this message, for it has prodded me to further investigate the words of Christ. I would like first, to add to Isaiah 43:26, which tells us to declare [document] to God and show him we are indeed learned of his word and promises; for this is necessary if we wish to collect on these promises. Therefore, I feel Isaiah 2:16-20 is also very important in going hand in hand with Isa. 43:26:
    .
    Isa. 2:16
    “Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil, [meaning repent by the blood of Christ] (17) Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow.
    .
    MEANING TAKE CARE OF FAMILY BY TEACHING THEM THE WORD OF GOD; NOT MANS TRADITIONS!!
    .
    (18) Come now, and LET US REASON TOGETHER [Isa. 43:26] saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
    .
    IN OTHER WORDS, IF YOU COME TO ME BY MY WORD/CHRIST; I WILL LISTEN AND HEAR YOUR PRAYERS AND LEAD YOU.
    .
    (19) *If* [this is conditional] ye be WILLING and OBEDIENT, ye shall eat the good of the land:
    .
    THAT IS A CONDITIONAL PROMISE FROM GOD, WHICH I CAN ATTEST TO PERSONALLY, HE KEEPS HIS PROMISES WHEN YOU STAY IN HIS WORD AND TRY YOUR BEST AND REPENT AS NEEDED. THOUGH MANY PEOPLE ARE STRUGGLING IN TODAYS JOB ENVIRONMENT, THANKFULLY; BY THE GRACE OF GOD, I AM DOING BETTER THAN EVER. PRAISE THE LORD!!
    .
    (20) But if ye REF– USE and REBEL, ye shall be devoured with the sword [Christ’s tongue]: for the MOUTH of the LORD hath spoken it.” [His WORD is powerful and true!]
    .
    .
    Now Brandon, I was wondering about a few things in your beautiful message:
    . Where it is written in Daniel 12:1 that “thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.” Is it not true that all currently practicing Christians that love Jesus are now written in the book, but most were not written there before the foundations of this world, (like God’s elect are) so therefore, they will be deceived by the anti-Christ? If you are not of his elect; but currently, through accepting Christ’s sacrifice, you are currently in the book by his grace; (is it not written that) “And except that the LORD had shortened those days, no FLESH should be saved: but for the ELECTS sake, whom he hath CHOSEN, he hath shortened the days.” Mk. 13:20. Doesn’t this mean basically that during the tribulation only God’s elect will not bow a knee to the anti-Christ? All the rest of the Christians in the flesh will worship Satan; thereby, temporarily, during the millennium, will have to earn the right to get their names back into the book? For you have written that “GOD’S RIGHT HAND WILL DELIVER YOU IF YOU LISTEN TO HIS INSTRUCTION.”
    … Brandon, to me this seems conditional by God that you must be one of God’s elect and be sealed to achieve this goal of God’s (during Satan’s tribulation). For I know the following is written in Rev. 13:8.-9… “And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD. (9) If any man have an ear, let him hear.” [that is if your name is written in the book of life “from the foundation of the world.”]
    .
    My point is that you must be sealed before the tribulation (meaning God’s elect) in order for what you wrote to be true that “God’s right hand will deliver you (during that time of trouble Dan 12:1) if you listen to his instruction.”
    .
    Also in Matt. 5:25 it would seem to me that this applies now, and if you do not heed this advice, you will end up like the people who own that bakery and now owe restitution in the amount of $135.000. Matt. 5:25 just seems to far away from Matt. 24 to be part of this advice during the tribulation, and Bullinger’s companion bible reads that adversary translates to an opponent (in a law suit). The context of Matt.5:25 does not say anything about during the tribulation that we should practice this order of business then.
    .
    Thanks again for everything you do Brandon, and I hope what I wrote does not cause any confusion, for these are my thoughts that arise when I am trying to further my knowledge in our Father’s word.
    .
    God bless.
