Example text

Not once during those many years has he ever seen the uncompromisingly righteous go unnoticed by God in their time of trouble. He completes his observation by saying, "... ” Please notice that when he says "his seed," David is not referring to God's seed. He is speaking of the seed of the righteous person. David is not making a promise that God's children will never beg. It is a promise that the children of the righteous will never have to beg. Now let's hear it again, but this time, let's hear it paraphrased and emphasized.

It took place as I was reading about the beggar named Lazarus. All of a sudden, there it was in black and white! Read with me and see if it doesn't affect you the same way. There was a certain rich man.... And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores, And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man’s table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores. And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom....

Not only that, but I have never seen the seed (children) of the righteous having to beg for bread. Notice that the church's traditional interpretation of his statement falsely concludes that during the many years of King David's life, he never saw one of God's children begging. Please notice that the context of Psalm 37:25 proves this interpretation to be wrong. The very structure of the sentence shows it is the children of the righteous man that David has never seen begging bread. No doubt, King David discussed with his son, Solomon, the observation he made of the well-being of the righteous and their seed.
