Good theme : Freedom of Speech and Press

My heart is overflowing with a good theme; I recite my composition concerning the King; My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.
Psalms 45:1 NKJV
https://bible.com/bible/114/psa.45.1.NKJV

The Psalmist’s rejoicing is over the family, and it’s positive value to honor the free flow of all knowledge, which is not to oppress any system of belief to the prevention of their views not spreading. The problem our Founders faced was creating a nation where no single faction could easily do such a thing. This has been World history until the American Democratic Republic changed all that now for over 240 years.

This Messianic Psalm celebrates King Jesus reigning where GOODNESS prevails and children carry on to new generations this glorious life and freedom!

My heart is overflowing with a good theme; I recite my composition concerning the King; My tongue is the pen of a ready writer. You are fairer than the sons of men; Grace is poured upon Your lips; Therefore God has blessed You forever. Gird Your sword upon Your thigh, O Mighty One, With Your glory and Your majesty. And in Your majesty ride prosperously because of truth, humility, and righteousness; And Your right hand shall teach You awesome things. Your arrows are sharp in the heart of the King’s enemies; The peoples fall under You. Your throne, O God, is forever and ever; A scepter of righteousness is the scepter of Your kingdom. You love righteousness and hate wickedness; Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You With the oil of gladness more than Your companions. All Your garments are scented with myrrh and aloes and cassia, Out of the ivory palaces, by which they have made You glad. Kings’ daughters are among Your honorable women; At Your right hand stands the queen in gold from Ophir. Listen, O daughter, Consider and incline your ear; Forget your own people also, and your father’s house; So the King will greatly desire your beauty;

Because He is your Lord, worship Him.

And the daughter of Tyre will come with a gift; The rich among the people will seek your favor. The royal daughter is all glorious within the palace; Her clothing is woven with gold. She shall be brought to the King in robes of many colors; The virgins, her companions who follow her, shall be brought to You. With gladness and rejoicing they shall be brought; They shall enter the King’s palace. Instead of Your fathers shall be Your sons, Whom You shall make princes in all the earth. I will make Your name to be remembered in all generations; Therefore the people shall praise You forever and ever.

Our Obedience Is Conditional for Our Land’s Fruitfulness

Deuteronomy 11

To Obey Is Better…

Living in the Land in Prosperity Required Obedience to the Law!

“Therefore you shall keep every commandment which I command you today, that you may be strong, and go in and possess the land which you cross over to possess, and that you may prolong your days in the land which the Lord swore to give your fathers, to them and their descendants, ‘a land flowing with milk and honey.’ For the land which you go to possess is not like the land of Egypt from which you have come, where you sowed your seed and watered it by foot, as a vegetable garden; but the land which you cross over to possess is a land of hills and valleys, which drinks water from the rain of heaven, a land for which the Lord your God cares; the eyes of the Lord your God are always on it, from the beginning of the year to the very end of the year.

Rain in Proper Distribution Essential for Crops – The Lifeblood of any Nation/People!

‘And it shall be that if you earnestly obey My commandments which I command you today, to love the Lord your God and serve Him with all your heart and with all your soul, then I will give you the rain for your land in its season, the early rain and the latter rain, that you may gather in your grain, your new wine, and your oil. And I will send grass in your fields for your livestock, that you may eat and be filled.’ “Take heed to yourselves, lest your heart be deceived, and you turn aside and serve other gods and worship them, lest the Lord ’s anger be aroused against you, and He shut up the heavens so that there be no rain, and the land yield no produce, and you perish quickly from the good land which the Lord is giving you.

Obedience Must Follow Each New Generation!

You shall teach them to your children, speaking of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up. And you shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates, that your days and the days of your children may be multiplied in the land of which the Lord swore to your fathers to give them, like the days of the heavens above the earth.

Obedience Drives Out All Enemies Sending them “Dread”

“For if you carefully keep all these commandments which I command you to do—to love the Lord your God, to walk in all His ways, and to hold fast to Him— then the Lord will drive out all these nations from before you, and you will dispossess greater and mightier nations than yourselves. Every place on which the sole of your foot treads shall be yours: from the wilderness and Lebanon, from the river, the River Euphrates, even to the Western Sea, shall be your territory. No man shall be able to stand against you; the Lord your God will put the dread of you and the fear of you upon all the land where you tread, just as He has said to you.

Choice is Daily before the People

“Behold, I set before you today a blessing and a curse: the blessing, if you obey the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you today; and the curse, if you do not obey the commandments of the Lord your God, but turn aside from the way which I command you today, to go after other gods which you have not known.

The Land of the Nation Is Defined by Their Border! Our Way of Life is Preserved by a Border. Our Values Must Be Set By Our Obedience Which Preserves Our Way of Life.

The Entire Chapter is a Wealth of Instruction for any Aspiring Nation!

This God of Good Land

Our Obedience is Key to “GOOD” Land – an Inheritance of Bounty

“Therefore you shall keep the commandments of the Lord your God, to walk in His ways and to fear Him. For the Lord your God is bringing you into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains and springs, that flow out of valleys and hills; a land of wheat and barley, of vines and fig trees and pomegranates, a land of olive oil and honey; a land in which you will eat bread without scarcity, in which you will lack nothing; a land whose stones are iron and out of whose hills you can dig copper.

Command to Bless Is Only to be Expected

When you have eaten and are full, then you shall bless the Lord your God for the good land which He has given you.

The Goodness of God in Galatians 4-6

4:17 Zeal for the Right Things is Required

They zealously court you, but for no good; yes, they want to exclude you, that you may be zealous for them. But it is good to be zealous in a good thing always, and not only when I am present with you. My little children, for whom I labor in birth again until Christ is formed in you, I would like to be present with you now and to change my tone; for I have doubts about you.
Galatians 4:17‭-‬20 NKJV
https://bible.com/bible/114/gal.4.17-20.NKJV

Walking in the Goodness of God

I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, so that you do not do the things that you wish. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law. Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.

Goodness is a Fruit

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law. And those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Let us not become conceited, provoking one another, envying one another.
Galatians 5:16‭-‬26 NKJV
https://bible.com/bible/114/gal.5.16-26.NKJV

6:6-12 Sharing the Goodness of God

Let him who is taught the word share in all good things with him who teaches. Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life.

We Can Become Weary while doing the Goodness of God!

And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.

Expanding the Goodness of God is the Alternative!

Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith.

Instead of the pride of Fleshly Goodness…

See with what large letters I have written to you with my own hand! As many as desire to make a good showing in the flesh, these would compel you to be circumcised, only that they may not suffer persecution for the cross of Christ.
Galatians 6:6‭-‬12 NKJV

The Goodness of God Defends the Righteous

The price for following good : Adversary Attacks

Those also who render evil for good, They are my adversaries, because I follow what is good.

The support for following good : Accompanying Presence of God!

Do not forsake me, O Lord ; O my God, be not far from me!

The support for following good : Accompanying Assistance of God!

Make haste to help me, O Lord, my salvation!
Psalms 38:20‭-‬22 NKJV

Good as Evil’s Magnet

Psalm 38

For in You, O Lord , I hope; You will hear, O Lord my God. For I said, “Hear me, lest they rejoice over me, Lest, when my foot slips, they exalt themselves against me.” For I am ready to fall, And my sorrow is continually before me.

Like it, or not, seeking Good in life draws out evildoers and evil within me itself.

For I will declare my iniquity; I will be in anguish over my sin. But my enemies are vigorous, and they are strong;

And those who hate me wrongfully have multiplied.

Those also who render evil for good, They are my adversaries, because I follow what is good . Do not forsake me, O Lord ; O my God, be not far from me! Make haste to help me, O Lord, my salvation!

When we seek to do good we must prepare for warfare that accompanies the work. This warfare is prayer and weapons God has given.

More of the Goodness of God from Psalms

A Certain Reward for GOOD

GOOD Men Receive Guidance Which Preserves their Way

The steps of a GOOD man are ordered by the Lord , And He delights in his way. Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down; For the Lord upholds him with His hand.

It Endures Throughout All Life

I have been young, and now am old; Yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken, Nor his descendants begging bread. He is ever merciful, and lends; And his descendants are blessed.

GOOD Is to Love Justice and Depart from Evil

Depart from evil, and do GOOD; And dwell forevermore. For the Lord loves justice, And does not forsake His saints; They are preserved forever, But the descendants of the wicked shall be cut off.
Psalms 37:23‭-‬28 NKJV
https://bible.com/bible/114/psa.37.23-28.NKJV

I am loving that which God loves when I do GOOD!
