Psalms 36:12 KJV
There are the workers of iniquity fallen: they are cast down, and shall not be able to rise.
The Psalm identifies the differences between the wicked and the one who trusts in the Lord and, together with the previous Psalm, plead God to fight those who fight against the righteous. He ends the Psalm with a word of assurance. It is as if he points to the spot where the enemy will fall and not get up.
Matthew Poole writes, “There, where they come against me, and hope to ruin me. He seems as it were to point at the place with his finger, as if it were already done, and he could tell all the circumstances of it. Or, then, i.e. when they thought all sure, and me irrecoverably lost.”
Though this world often appears to be friendly to the ungodly (it is only an appearance; the ungodly also get sick, go through difficulty and eventually die) there is a time and a place when those who do not know God will fall and not rise up. God's Word assures us that hell and the
are real and that real souls will go there for a real eternity. Lake of Fire
I point that place out not to revel in the place of their defeat but to warn men and women that there is such a place.
- Rise up today
- Rise up and come to Jesus Christ
- Rise up while you can
and be rescued from that place where they are cast down and shall not be able to rise.
