See what I meant? Can you feel it yet? Sense how fast they are moving, consolidating their gains and striking with renewed strength and vigor?

The musical director for David, a fellow called Asaph, was 3000 years ahead of you.  8)

He wrote more of the Bible than Peter, James, Jude, Jonah, Amos, Micah, Joel, Malachi, Zephaniah, Habakkuk, Nahum, Haggai, or Obadiah. Interestingly enough, if we take the time to dig it out, the Bible tells more about Asaph's life than it tells us about any other author of scripture except Moses, David, Samuel, and perhaps Isaiah, Hosea, and Jeremiah.  :o

We know the times Asaph lived in (circa 1020 - 920 BC), from David's reign, through Solomon's to Rehoboam's.

Asaph was VERY angry and depressed about just about everything turning to EVIL in his lifetime. In Psalm 73 he complains bitterly about how the Godless rich, who think God does not see their evil works, continue to prosper while good people continue to get the shaft.

This is just part of the EVIL that he lived through:

Quote
After Solomon's dedication of the Temple, Asaph saw Israel's "golden age" turn into something quite apart from what he expected. After a promising beginning, Solomon turned his back on God and pursued power, wealth, luxury, and human wisdom,[3] as well as worship of other gods.[4]

To finance these pursuits the people were oppressed with slavery [5] and taxes.[6] Asaph saw Solomon become a wicked man who entrusted the administration of his Kingdom to other wicked men.

There is good reason to believe (see Appendix 5) that during Solomon's reign, Asaph's brother Zechariah [7] was assassinated in the Temple by Solomon's agents. Neither Asaph nor Zechariah would keep silent about Solomon's wickedness. Zechariah paid the ultimate price.

Nothing new under sun, old chum. Evil is as evil does. 8)








Light is sown for the righteous, and gladness for the upright in heart. Ps. 97:11
