David was in a low period, just as we, as Christians, have times of depression. He felt a weakness of not only depression but also health. His experiences were affecting him physically, mentally, and spiritually. King David was confessing to Jehovah his weakness and his need, as we do when being tried in a special fashion. We call upon the Lord for help in our time of need.

It seems inevitable that no two people think alike and that holds true for the Christian as well (unless you are in a cult and have to see everything the same way). So what do we do when someone doesn’t see things quite the same was that we do? This booklet follows the Christian through the thoughts and prayers that need to be made to make the best decisions. This booklet also gives practical examples. We must all be careful not to give reproach on the name of our Lord by our conduct, so we need to make sure we handle these differences as He would have us do!
It is because Christendom as a whole –though nominally a wheat field, is practically a tare field with a scattering of wheat intermingled, that there is to be such a commotion in connection with the separation of the wheat and the tares. True, the Lord who knoweth the heart, who knoweth them that are His, could easily separate them from the others, but He has chosen to make a separation publicly to demonstrate His own justice in the matter. Hence in this harvest time–at the proper time to separate the wheat from the tares–the Lord not only sends the sickle of Truth to gather the wheat, but He also sends the strong delusions to gather the tares.
It would be a mistake, however, to suppose that Ezekiel’s mission was entirely or even chiefly to the Jews of his time. Rather we are to understand, through St. Peter’s statement, that he, with other Prophets of old, spoke and wrote things which they themselves and the people who heard them did not understand—things which God did not wish to have understood until after the giving of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost—things which would be “meat in due season” for the spiritual Israelites throughout this age.
