Open Your Eyes and SEE!

The cry for many to humble themselves has gone out for almost 20 years now. The judgement of the oppressors has been building for centuries in the Western World. The blood of the slaves and oppressed is crying out from the ground. The voice of the laborers and exploited children is crying out and has reached The Kings ears long ago.

The defender of the poor and oppressed will move His Mighty Hand and all will know He is the judge of the living and the dead. JESUS IS LORD.

Psalm 9
New Living Translation (NLT)

I will praise you, Lord, with all my heart;
I will tell of all the marvelous things you have done.

I will be filled with joy because of you.
I will sing praises to your name, O Most High.

My enemies retreated;
they staggered and died when you appeared.

For you have judged in my favor;
from your throne you have judged with fairness.

You have rebuked the nations and destroyed the wicked;
you have erased their names forever.

The enemy is finished, in endless ruins;
the cities you uprooted are now forgotten.

But the Lord reigns forever,
executing judgment from his throne.

He will judge the world with justice
and rule the nations with fairness.

The Lord is a shelter for the oppressed,
a refuge in times of trouble.

Those who know your name trust in you,
for you, O Lord, do not abandon those who search for you.

Sing praises to the Lord who reigns in Jerusalem.
Tell the world about his unforgettable deeds.

For he who avenges murder cares for the helpless.
He does not ignore the cries of those who suffer.

Lord, have mercy on me.
See how my enemies torment me.

Snatch me back from the jaws of death.

Save me so I can praise you publicly at Jerusalem’s gates,
so I can rejoice that you have rescued me.

The nations have fallen into the pit they dug for others.
Their own feet have been caught in the trap they set.

The Lord is known for his justice.
The wicked are trapped by their own deeds.

The wicked will go down to the grave.
This is the fate of all the nations who ignore God.

But the needy will not be ignored forever;
the hopes of the poor will not always be crushed.

Arise, O Lord!
Do not let mere mortals defy you!

Judge the nations!
Make them tremble in fear, O Lord.
Let the nations know they are merely human.

Psalm 10
Passion Translation{5 Fold Media Dr. Brian Simmons}

Lord, you seem so far away! Why do you stand so far off
As though you don't care?
Why have You hidden Yourself when I need You the most?

All this time the arrogant in their elitist pride
Erupt with persecution against the poor and helpless.

May you pour out upon them
The very evil they planned against others.

How they brag and boast of their cravings, exalting the greedy.
They congratulate themselves as they despise God.

These arrogant ones, so smug and secure
In their plots and plans, they reassure themselves by saying:

"There is no God. There is no need of Him.
There is nothing to worry about!
Our wealth will last for all time"

So seemingly successful are they in their schemes,
Prosperous in all their plans and scoffing at any restraint.

Yet all this time they are unaware of His anger:
Not understanding that their day of judgment is ahead.
The Exalted God they deny will soon declare their doom!

They boast that neither God nor men will bring them down.
They sneer at all their enemies, saying in their hearts

"We'll have success in all we do and never have to face trouble"

Yet all the time not knowing that they speak this in vain.
Their mouth spout out cursing, lies, and threats.
Only trouble and turmoil comes from all their plans.

Like lions lurking in the shadow of the city,
They crouch silently in ambush for the people to pass by;
They pounce on the poor and catch them in their snare,

They murder their prey in secret!
They plunder their victims presuming them all as inferior.

They crush the lowly, falling beneath their brutal blows,
As their victims collapse in defeat!

Then they say to themselves,
"The Lofty One is not watching while we do this,
We can get away with it!"

Now is the time to arise O Lord! Crush them once and for all!
Don’t forget the forgotten and helpless.

How dare the wicked think they will escape in their evil,
Believing that You would not call them to account for all their ways!

Lord, I know that You see all that they're doing,
Noting their each and every deed.
You know the trouble and turmoil they've caused.

Now punish them thoroughly for all that they've done!

The poor and the helpless ones trust in You Lord,
For you are famous for being the Helper of the fatherless.

I know you won’t let them down.

Break the power of the wicked, and their arms of strength.
Search them out and destroy them for the wickedness they have done

You, Lord, are King forever and ever!
You will see all the nations perish from off Your land

Lord, You know and understand all the hopes of the humble
And will hear their cries and comfort their hearts, helping them all!

The Orphans and The Oppressed will be terrified NO LONGER,
And no one will trouble them!

Psalm 82
The Passion Translation{5 Fold Media Dr. Brian Simmons}

All rise! For God now stands up to judge
As He convenes heaven's courtroom!

He judges the judges and rules over the rulers! Saying
"How long will you judges refuse to listen to the voice of True Justice
And continue to corrupt what is right
By judging in favor of the wrong?

Defend the defenseless, the fatherless and the forgotten,
The disenfranchised and the destitute.

Your duty is to deliver the poor and the powerless;
Liberate them from the grasp of the wicked.

But you continue in your darkness and ignorance
While the foundations of society are shaken to the core

Didn't I commission you as judges saying,

"You are all like gods since you judge on my behalf.
You are all like sons of The Most High, My representatives.
(See Mark 16:15-20 and Matthew 16:13-20)

Nevertheless, in death you are nothing but mere men!
You will be laid in the ground like any prince and you will die."

All arise! For God now takes His place as Judge of ALL THE EARTH!
Don't you know that everything and everyone belongs to Him?

The nations will be sifted IN HIS HANDS!

Isaiah 24
New King James Version (NKJV)

Impending Judgment on the Earth

Behold, the Lord makes the earth empty and makes it waste,
Distorts its surface
And scatters abroad its inhabitants.

And it shall be:
As with the people, so with the priest;
As with the servant, so with his master;
As with the maid, so with her mistress;
As with the buyer, so with the seller;
As with the lender, so with the borrower;
As with the creditor, so with the debtor.

The land shall be entirely emptied and utterly plundered,
For the Lord has spoken this word.

The earth mourns and fades away,
The world languishes and fades away;
The haughty people of the earth languish.

The earth is also defiled under its inhabitants,
Because they have transgressed the laws,
Changed the ordinance,
Broken the everlasting covenant.

Therefore the curse has devoured the earth,
And those who dwell in it are desolate.

Therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned,
And few men are left.
The new wine fails, the vine languishes,
All the merry-hearted sigh.

The mirth of the tambourine ceases,
The noise of the jubilant ends,
The joy of the harp ceases.

They shall not drink wine with a song;
Strong drink is bitter to those who drink it.

The city of confusion is broken down;
Every house is shut up, so that none may go in.

There is a cry for wine in the streets,
All joy is darkened,
The mirth of the land is gone.

In the city desolation is left,
And the gate is stricken with destruction.

When it shall be thus in the midst of the land among the people,
It shall be like the shaking of an olive tree,
Like the gleaning of grapes when the vintage is done.

They shall lift up their voice, they shall sing;
For the majesty of the Lord
They shall cry aloud from the sea.

Therefore glorify the Lord in the dawning light,
The name of the Lord God of Israel in the coastlands of the sea.

From the ends of the earth we have heard songs:

“Glory to the righteous!”
But I said, “I am ruined, ruined!
Woe to me!

The treacherous dealers have dealt treacherously,
Indeed, the treacherous dealers have dealt very treacherously.”

Fear and the pit and the snare
Are upon you, O inhabitant of the earth.

And it shall be
That he who flees from the noise of the fear
Shall fall into the pit,

And he who comes up from the midst of the pit
Shall be caught in the snare;
For the windows from on high are open,
And the foundations of the earth are shaken.

The earth is violently broken,
The earth is split open,
The earth is shaken exceedingly.

The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard,
And shall totter like a hut;
Its transgression shall be heavy upon it,
And it will fall, and not rise again.

It shall come to pass in that day
That the Lord will punish on high the host of exalted ones,
And on the earth the kings of the earth.

They will be gathered together,
As prisoners are gathered in the pit,

And will be shut up in the prison;
After many days they will be punished.

Then the moon will be disgraced
And the sun ashamed;

For the Lord of hosts will reign
On Mount Zion and in Jerusalem

And before His elders, gloriously.

James 5:1-8
New King James Version (NKJV)

5 Come now, you rich, weep and howl for your miseries that are coming upon you! 2 Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are moth-eaten. 3 Your gold and silver are corroded, and their corrosion will be a witness against you and will eat your flesh like fire. You have heaped up treasure in the last days. 4 Indeed the wages of the laborers who mowed your fields, which you kept back by fraud, cry out; and the cries of the reapers have reached the ears of the Lord of Sabaoth.[a] 5 You have lived on the earth in pleasure and luxury; you have fattened your hearts as[b] in a day of slaughter. 6 You have condemned, you have murdered the just; he does not resist you.

7 Therefore be patient, brethren, until the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, waiting patiently for it until it receives the early and latter rain. 8 You also be patient. Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is at hand.
