Sons of Men as a Term for Humanity in General

Human beings are inferior to God

Psalm 115:16

16The heaven, even the heavens, are the Lord’s;

But the earth He has given to the children of men.

 

Psalm 11:4; 45:2

11:4 The Lord is in His holy temple,

The Lord’s throne is in heaven;

His eyes behold,

His eyelids test the sons of men.

 

45:2 You are fairer than the sons of men;

Grace is poured upon Your lips;

Therefore God has blessed You forever.

 

Human beings are dependent on God’s care

Psalm 8:4; 36:7; 80:17; 107:8, 15

8:4 What is man that You are mindful of him,

And the son of man that You visit him?

 

36:7How precious is Your lovingkindness, O God!

Therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of Your wings.

 

80:17 Let Your hand be upon the man of Your right hand,

Upon the son of man whom You made strong for Yourself.

 

107:8 Oh, that men would give thanks to the Lord for His goodness,

And for His wonderful works to the children of men!

 

107:15 Oh, that men would give thanks to the Lord for His goodness,

And for His wonderful works to the children of men!

 

Human beings are mortal

Ecclesiastes 9:3

This is an evil in all that is done under the sun: that one thing happens to all. Truly the hearts of the sons of men are full of evil; madness is in their hearts while they live, and after that they go to the dead.

 

Ecclesiastes 3:18-19

18 I said in my heart, “Concerning the condition of the sons of men, God tests them, that they may see that they themselves are like animals.” 19 For what happens to the sons of men also happens to animals; one thing befalls them: as one dies, so dies the other. Surely, they all have one breath; man has no advantage over animals, for all is vanity.

 

Human beings are sinful and untrustworthy

Psalm 146:3

3 Do not put your trust in princes,

Nor in a son of man, in whom there is no help.

 

Psalm 14:2

2 The Lord looks down from heaven upon the children of men,

To see if there are any who understand, who seek God.

 

Micah 5:7

7 Then the remnant of Jacob

Shall be in the midst of many peoples,

Like dew from the Lord,

Like showers on the grass,

That tarry for no man

Nor wait for the sons of men.

 

Knowledge is the apprehension of truth; wisdom is its application to life. Knowledge is prudent judgment and wisdom is prudent action. Both are found in Christ (cf. Rom. 11:33; 1 Cor. 12:8) whose wisdom is foolishness to the world (1 Cor. 1:21-25), but who is the power of God by which a believer receives “righteousness, holiness, and redemption” (1 Cor. 1:30).

God is testing us every day and has given us the right to make our own choices. Do you know which ones are the right choices in Gods mind?

Fear God, love God, honor God, and trust God with all your heart, mind and soul and you will receive and experience the joy of the promises of God’s blessings in His time.

Please bless those who have read this article for they too seek Your righteous truth, love, wisdom and understanding.

May God, Jesus, The Holy Spirit and Christianity be our guiding lights, our safety nets and our inspiration for loving happiness in all of Your kingdom. Father into your hands I commend my spirit. Not my will, but yours be done. Please come Lord Jesus.

I pray in Jesus sweet name and to His glory through the power of the Holy Spirit,

Amen.
