|Psalms 88:17 |
17 They came around me daily like water; they compassed me about together.1
1 They came around me daily like water; they compassed me about together. Clearly these are the demons who are afflicting this man, who are persecuting him. Every day, they surround him like water. They are in a parallel dimension, but able to read your thoughts and inflict pain on you, anywhere inside or outside your body. The Lord uses them to chastise his loved ones: As many as I love, I chastise [reprove, discipline] : be zealous therefore, and repent, Revelation 3:19; and for the Lord disciplines the one he loves, and scourges every son whom he accepts. Heb 12:5-8.
