B. Behold the Jury & Defendant (Ps. 50:4-6).
C. Behold the Charges on the Docket (Ps. 50:7-9).
D. Behold the Truth on Display (Ps. 50:10-12).
II. Your Judge Can Either Sentence or Save (Psalm 50:13-23).
A. Call on Your Deliverer for Salvation (Ps. 50:13-15).
What was God looking for in Israel down through the ages? He wanted them to be thankful—thankful for the great sacrifice already offered for sin, thankful for the gift to them of the Scriptures, the Son, and the Spirit. He wanted them to be truthful—to pay their vows. He wanted them to be trustful—to call upon Him in the day of trouble, not to trust in their wealth, their works, their worship, or anything else, but in Him.
B. Consider the Fate of the Wicked (Ps. 50:16-18).
That word “consentedst” is translated by some as “didst delight thyself with” or “found pleasure with” or “ran with.” The idea conveyed is one of full agreement, approval, and fellowship.
