Remixing And Applying The Psalms – A Fresh Take On Your Bible Application!

Here in The Majesty’s Men, we value scripture highly and view it as the main source for God speaking to us! Though no man can re-write, add to, or change any meaning of scripture, we do think time spent writing it out in your own words and application, as Ryan shows us here, is time well spent! Any practice of any kind that gets you into God’s word, is a good practice! Maybe this will help you study and remember it. Anyone wanna bust our your music and record one for us?

Contemporization: Taking Scripture and creatively paraphrasing with direct application for today’s culture.

Psalm 1 Remixed

Blessed is the man

who is not a product of pop-culture

nor dives into self-gratifying pleasure at the pressure of his buddies

nor mocks the high road while burning curb-side on the low.

This man

savours Creator’s words.

He may salivate at words of those who believe themselves to be Creator

but quickly turns his hunger to a different dish.

This man sits at the footstool of Creator

for a humble banquet of life-giving literature.

He dines with the King

for breakfast, lunch and supper.

He craves a midnight snack.

He is like a skyscraper

engineered with cunning expertise

touching heaven, bringing some to earth.

Watching over the city of sin,

postured as a symbol —

architect Creator’s words into every beam and brick

and the hurricane that vacuums the city

will only tickle you.

For the Creator constructed the high road of this blessed man,

He even laid caution and detour signs.

Creator knows the low road may look welcoming

but quickly turns to a gravel, sharp gravel,

then a dead end with a one-way gate behind.

Bible Reading The Majestys Men

Psalm 1

Blessed is the man
who walks not in the counsel of the wicked,
nor stands in the way of sinners,
nor sits in the seat of scoffers;
but his delight is in the law of the Lord,
and on his law he meditates day and night.

He is like a tree
planted by streams of water
that yields its fruit in its season,
and its leaf does not wither.
In all that he does, he prospers.
The wicked are not so,
but are like chaff that the wind drives away.

Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,
nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous;
for the Lord knows the way of the righteous,
but the way of the wicked will perish.

The Adelphotes Network by TheMajestysMen.com

 

“Adelphós” is greek for “brother”, and so “adelphotés ” is the greek word used in the Bible to refer to the “brotherhood of believers” and the early followers of “the way”, both male and female. We are in the very early stages of building a network of like-minded brothers who seek to make much of Jesus, together. Each site will be guaranteed to be amazing with as much (or little) as you need to produce the content you want to produce with attractive style!

We are currently not open for applications, but if you’re interested, you can submit your info and reserve a place in line to be notified first when we begin accepting applications. Simply go to this page and submit your info.

You can check out a few of the guys who have already taken their sites live on the network and show them some support:
