the devil is ejected from the hearts of the repentant

It is 12:59 PM Thursday afternoon here in West Michigan. It is gray cloudy day. It is not as cold as it has been lately. It is not snowing so that is a blessing.

Before I go any further I am not going to write all my thoughts/reflections on yesterday's coup attempt by Trump and the Republican Party to overthrow the US Government. We are in the last days of the American Empire. It is sad to see Trump go unpunished for his acts of treason. It is tragic to hear an acting President/Trump command/inciting his followers to storm the Capital Building take it over by force/violence. I will write no more. We meaning us decent Americans/law abiding are doomed/the the US Government has failed the American people.

I got up this morning around 7:30 AM. I stayed up till Midnight last night. Carol and I watched all day the coup attempt by Trump and his Republican thugs/insurrectionists. Carol went to bed around 11 o'clock PM. I turned off the TV because I was tired of all the bullshit. We all know nothing is going to change after Trump's acts of treason/we watched Republican senators support Trump even in the light of all that took place yesterday. Our next door neighbor still has up on his lawn Vote For Trump next to a sign that states Jesus Is Lord/how sickening!

I got up and found Carol reading her Bible. I made for myself oatmeal for breakfast. I next wrote in my paper diary and read The Book of Psalms/Psalm 9. I mainly read today from a book titled, '"Beatus Vir" Commentary On The Davidic Psalms' Volume 1 Psalms 1-25 by Denis The Carthusian.

Well more could be written but I will close to drift into the death flow.

[1] I will praise thee, O LORD, with my whole heart; I will shew forth all thy marvellous works.
[2] I will be glad and rejoice in thee: I will sing praise to thy name, O thou most High.
[3] When mine enemies are turned back, they shall fall and perish at thy presence.
[4] For thou hast maintained my right and my cause; thou satest in the throne judging right.
[5] Thou hast rebuked the heathen, thou hast destroyed the wicked, thou hast put out their name for ever and ever.
[6] O thou enemy, destructions are come to a perpetual end: and thou hast destroyed cities; their memorial is perished with them.
[7] But the LORD shall endure for ever: he hath prepared his throne for judgment.
[8] And he shall judge the world in righteousness, he shall minister judgment to the people in uprightness.
[9] The LORD also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble.
[10] And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee: for thou, LORD, hast not forsaken them that seek thee.
[11] Sing praises to the LORD, which dwelleth in Zion: declare among the people his doings.
[12] When he maketh inquisition for blood, he remembereth them: he forgetteth not the cry of the humble.
[13] Have mercy upon me, O LORD; consider my trouble which I suffer of them that hate me, thou that liftest me up from the gates of death:
[14] That I may shew forth all thy praise in the gates of the daughter of Zion: I will rejoice in thy salvation.
[15] The heathen are sunk down in the pit that they made: in the net which they hid is their own foot taken.
[16] The LORD is known by the judgment which he executeth: the wicked is snared in the work of his own hands. Higgaion. Selah.
[17] The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.

[18] For the needy shall not alway be forgotten: the expectation of the poor shall not perish for ever.
[19] Arise, O LORD; let not man prevail: let the heathen be judged in thy sight.
[20] Put them in fear, O LORD: that the nations may know themselves to be but men. Selah.
