LET GOD ARISE
Theme: A study in the challenge and changes that God's arising in our midst will bring.
Today I want to share with you on the challenging theme of "Letting God Arise" using Psalms 68:1-3 as the scripture text. I am praying that at the conclusion of this message our hearts will be burning with the same desire that filled the heart of the Psalmist as he cried out these words...
"May God arise, may his enemies be scattered; may his foes flee before him. As smoke is blown away by the wind, may you blow them away; as wax melts before the fire, may the wicked perish before God. but may the righteous be glad and rejoice before God, may they be happy and joyful." (NIV)
If you read this scripture in the KJV you will find it says, "Let God arise". The Living Bible states, "Arise O God" and the Modern Language Bible records it as "God shall arise".
