Spiritual Warfare in the Book of Psalms – part 9

Filed under: Spiritual Warfare in the Book of Psalms — kellporten @ 10:57

Scripture:

Ps. 1:5
Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.

Comment:

Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment…

There will be a final judgment, not only for all men, but also for the evil spiritual world.

Rev. 20:10
And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

Ps 1:5 says that the ‘ungodly’, shall not stand in the judgement. And in this study ‘ungodly’ means the evil spirits, the evil spirits shall not stand in the judgment. The word “stand up” (rise up) can also be translated:

  • remain
  • resist
  • succeed
  • remain standing

Jesus has given the believers a mission to cast out evil spirits. When we, by faith and in obedience for God, act against the evil spiritual world, the evil spirits, just as in the final judgement, cannot remain standing (Luke 10:17). Of course they try to, but they will not be successful.

Let’s also have a look at the end of the verse:

… nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous

To be saved is no guarantee not to be judged. We are not called to live in sin, but in sanctification. Confess your sin, cast out the demons giving false advice and turn back to God!
