Psalm 8: Truly Uplifting
"When I consider Thy heavens, the work of Thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which Thou hast ordained; What is man, that Thou art mindful of him?"
Satan's rebellion was about "uplifting" himself over God (see What Is Satan's Real Name?). He became a traitor (see The Spirit Of Traitors) for the vain purpose of his narcissism ("an exceptional interest in and admiration for one's self or circumstances"). He claimed "exceptionalism" for himself and his rebel kingdom - which was nothing more than a lame excuse for dead-end hypocrisy. Anyone with "eyes" for Truth can see the political and religious "Babylon" result for what it really is and always has been (see The Children Of The Two Kingdoms, Who Lights Your Walk? and What Kind Of Children Does The Devil Have?).
"28:13 Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created. 28:14 Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire. 28:15 Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee." (Ezekiel 28:13-15 KJV)
Satan's churches of this world pander to their trained-to-be-self-righteous congregations by feeding them "uplifting" anti-Biblical delusions that sooth them like a narcotic with whatever they want to hear (see Is Your Religion Your Religion? and Why Call Me, Lord, Lord, and Do Not The Things Which I Say?). The result is that those who have been brainwashed with "uplifting" fantasies very-often fear and hate what is truly uplifting - the Truth of the Gospel of the coming Kingdom of God. Satan still wants people to believe in his "going to heaven" fantasy (see The True Gospel Of Christ).
"11:13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. 11:14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. 11:15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works." (2 Corinthians 11:13-15 KJV)
The Messiah taught the pure uplifting Truth - how those who obey Him will be uplifted to Eternal Life (see the Fact Finder question below to understand what the Messiah really said in the famous "John 3:16" verse).
"6:38 For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me. 6:39 And this is the Father's will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day. 6:40 And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day." (John 6:38-40 KJV)
King David was a true servant of the LORD who was humbly "uplifted" by the Truth. He left being "uplifted" by vanity and arrogance to the Devil and those who choose to follow his loser way.
"8:1 To the chief Musician upon Gittith, A Psalm of David.
