PPOG = The predesigned Plan of God
PSD = Your Personal Sense of Destiny which is a plan designed by  the Lord Jesus Christ and tailored just for you.

Fret is the Hebrew verb ‎charah meaning to blaze up, to be angry, to  be jealous, or to covet.

Hebrew verb anag translated trust but the basic meaning is to be intimate, to make love, to be close to someone.

He almost fell and slipped because he had become jealous and envied the prosperity of the wicked.

Are you thinking in the realm of human viewpoint which really has no solution to your problems or are you thinking with Divine Viewpoint which has a solution which is the mind of Christ.

The writer Asaph saw what the wicked had as far as blessings are concerned and as a musician, he also functioned with the talent that the Lord had given him and others.

Your talent is given by God to all members of the human race whereas our spiritual gift is the supernatural ability that God the Holy Spirit has in given us whatever He sees fit.

All we have to do is learn the doctrine and God the Holy Spirit will bring whatever we learned to our memory center.

We know that because of what our Lord said to His disciples just hours before His death on the cross.

The predesigned plan of God is revealed by God the Holy Spirit who is our Mentor or teacher in Joh 14:26.

The Lesson = They saw what God had given them.

Psa 73, the author Asaph saw the outward display of prosperity that those who live for themselves like the wicked or the wrongdoers have as well.

A New car, new home, better job, fine clothing, no problems with the finances, everything is going right.

You look at what they have but you only see their outward display not the inner changes.

What we see may not be real or at all.

We do not see the discomfort and lack of contentment in the wicked soul.

We do not see when they go to sleep at night even though  that they have all these riches and all these things and all this form of prosperity, there’s something missing in their soul.

ECC 3:11 He has made everything meaningful in its time. He has also set eternity in their heart or set the desire for eternal things that are eternal without which [the setting of the desire for eternal things]

mankind will not find out the work which God has done from the beginning even to the end.

For the believer who spends his life in the cosmic system, death is horrible.

Better an end with horror than horror without end.

Anytime you become critical or upset, blaming God for whatever it is like the departure of a loved one, you’re in a state of blasphemy.

It isn’t a matter of when we think the death should be; it is a matter of what God has decided; Psa 68:19-20 .

If God decides to take you out by some terrible disease, all the health food and vitamins in the world won’t help you; you will die of disease.

The point is that nothing will prolong your life beyond God’s time for you to die.

Asaph can only guess what is happening but he has no idea what is really going on because no one knows the day or the hour of anyone’s death.

This man doesn’t know whether or not there are “no pains” in the death of the wicked , only God knows the details that are involved concerning what the individual is going through.

ISA 57:1  The righteous man perishes, and no man takes it to heart; And devout men are taken away, while no one understands. For the righteous man is taken away from evil,

Asaph has no idea of what happens to the wealthy or the wicked at death.

Asaph doesn’t know whether or not there are “no pains” in the death of the wicked, only God knows the details that are involved concerning what the individual is going through.

This man will learn and apply concerning WHY  the wicked prosper while the believer always seems to be in need, one way or another.

All believers who understand these principles realize the fact that the answers will come but they may not be the answers we expected or the blessings you thought — +H or inner happiness and contentment.

We want those blessings in “our time,” or “under our timing” rather than waiting for the Divine Timing of our Lord to act on our behalf according to His timing and not ours.

We need to perceive the “Word of God” under the “power of God the Holy Spirit” so that we are always “able and ready” to worship our Lord according to His Word.

 LUK 12:40  “You too, be ready; for the Son of Man is coming at an hour that you do not expect.”

The tools of our trade aren’t for marketing or manipulation, but they are for demolishing any viewpoint from the Cosmic system.

According to the divine will of God which is for us and not against us, God ‘s timing is not like man’s timing which is why all of us need to be ready and prepared to face whatever the Lord desires for us.

Many believers think and say such thing like; “If you have money and prosperity all of your problems can be solved and that simply is not so.”

We should never covert or lust after what the wicked and the wealthy possess, especially in our day and age, with all the deception and lies from the cosmic system concerning such things as sensitive as money.

Psa 73:4 says that “their body is fat” it means that they enjoy blessings from the Lord but do not want the Lord Himself.

In the ancient world, prosperity was manifested by the strength of the human body being healthy and prosperous through the physical body.

In Psa 73:3, he almost slipped away from God.

He is saying “There’s no pain from their death like there is with others who are dying.”

This is a false truth because no one really knows what truly happens when an individual is in the dying stage of their life as well as the time and the manner of our death.

PSA 68:20   God is to us a God of deliverances; And to God the Lord belong escapes from death.

Death has been overcome by the spiritual death of our Lord Jesus Christ who won the victory over death once and for all.

1CO 15:55-56 says  “O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?   The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law but thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

1CO 15:58  Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your toil is not {in} vain in the Lord.

PSA 116:15  Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His godly ones.

You can see a little bit of arrogance coming through those who have been blessed by God who think that “they” are the reasons why they are blessed.

We know that the truth and the blessings are not because of something you or I did to earn these Divine Blessings but because of what our Lord desires to give to whomever He wants to.

 

1CO 4:7  For who regards you as superior? And what do you have that you did not receive? But if you did receive it, why do you boast as if you had not received it?

The reason is given in 1CO 1:29  that no man should boast before God.

We all need to remind ourselves of something, which is the fact that you and I have something in our soul that money cannot buy.

One of those doctrinal principles is that you can go through a tragedy, or a disaster and still you can say, “I have learned to be content in whatever state I am in.”

We can handle anything that comes our way with happiness and joyfulness; Deu 28:27  “Because you did not serve the Lord your God with joy and a glad heart, for the abundance of all things;”

And this is why PRO 23:23 says  Buy truth, and do not sell {it,} {Get} wisdom and instruction and understanding.

First of all, you can buy the truth, not with money but with your time and your dedication to the Living Word, TLJC, as well as the written word, Bible doctrine – Joh 1:1 .

You cannot buy contentment .
You cannot buy love.
You cannot buy truth.
You cannot buy God’s power.
You cannot buy eternal life.

This is the thinking of the individual that almost totally slipped away from that which was important, the plan of God.

There are some things about the wicked who prosper or people who have riches don’t have to be concerned about such things as where their next meal is going to come from.

They don’t have to be concerned about who’s going to pay for the insurance, for their health insurance, who’s going to pay the car payment.

They don’t have to worry about those things and the ordinary domestic and personal troubles that we would have as naturally minded individuals.

“what the Lord willed to have for us” — as well as “what the Lord desires from us” which is what we know and perceive those doctrines which are designed just for us.

They wear their own pride and their own violence as jewelry and they want everyone to see “Look what I’ve got.”

This is the thinking of the individual who  almost totally slipped away from that which was important, the plan of God.

There are some things about the wicked who prosper or people who have riches do not do and that they don’t have to worry about the details of life.

They don’t have to be concerned about who’s going to pay for the insurance, for their health insurance, who’s going to pay the car payment.

They don’t have to worry about those things and the ordinary domestic and personal troubles that we would have as naturally minded individuals or people who are not rich.

When it says, “Their hearts run riot” it refers to fact whatever their heart wants, they get, because of their riches.

ECC 2:10  And all that my eyes desired I did not refuse them. I did not withhold my heart from any pleasure, for my heart was pleased because of all my labor and this was my reward for all my labor.

Solomon was one of the most miserable person in the world at this time and he said, “All that my eyes desired, I did not refuse them.”


  1. You can’t buy salvation or save yourself.
    2. You cannot buy love.

When it says, “They speak from on high” it refers to their arrogance.

“How” or “What”  is it that most of us need to “live on” or “what do I mean when I say YOU were handpicked and chosen by the Lord before the earth was created, to receive His Royal ambassadorship.

GAL 6:3   For if anyone thinks he is something when he is nothing, he deceives himself.

“What they say parades through the earth”= It’s like a parade accepted as mankind’s tremendous wisdom because of their so-called success.

They ignore God.
They deny God.
They reject God.
They attack God.
They attack others.

They recruit more wicked people like themselves and teach them to do the same things and sometimes they do better than the ones who trained them.

 MAT 23:15   “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites, because you travel about on sea and land to make one proselyte; and when he becomes one, you make him twice as much a son of hell as yourselves.

“These are the wicked; they’re always at ease, and they have increased in wealth (Even in the cosmic system, they keep increasing.).

This  man actually thinks that those who try to live Godly have nothing but misfortune and those who are living wickedly and everything goes right.

In wickedness, there are times when everything is going wrong and they think they that they can get blessings from God by working and serving Him = C2.

“But as for me, my feet came close to stumbling; my steps had almost slipped.  (Why?)  I was envious or jealous and covertness of the arrogant, as I saw the prosperity of the wicked.”

There are times when it will seem by sight that if you lie and steal and cheat you can and get ahead and that you will be blessed because of something you have done.

In other times it seems that if you’re honest, you don’t get the job but if you lie and steal and cheat then there will be some blessings from God. = A Cosmic Lie

Some believers are tempted at times when they I try to love people and level with them and along comes this conniver, this deceiver and he just lies and he gets everything.  

The author Asaph is saying:  “Surely in vain I have kept my heart pure, and (surely in vain) I have washed my hands in innocence;”  

“I’m trying to make godly decisions and everything’s going wrong.”
