In this week’s study from Tehillim / Psalms 95:1-11, the Psalm opens saying, א לְכוּ נְרַנְּנָה לַיהֹוָה נָרִיעָה לְצוּר יִשְׁעֵנוּ: 95:1 O come, let us sing for joy to the Lord, Let us shout joyfully to the rock of our salvation. (NASB) The Lord is described as the rock of our salvation. What is it about the rock that saves? The Psalm continues saying, ב נְקַדְּמָה פָנָיו בְּתוֹדָה בִּזְמִרוֹת נָרִיעַ לוֹ: ג כִּי אֵל גָּדוֹל יְהֹוָה וּמֶלֶךְ גָּדוֹל עַל-כָּל-אֱלֹהִים: ד אֲשֶׁר בְּיָדוֹ מֶחְקְרֵי-אָרֶץ וְתוֹעֲפוֹת הָרִים לוֹ: 95:2 Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving, Let us shout joyfully to Him with psalms. 95:3 For the Lord is a great God And a great King above all gods, 95:4 In whose hand are the depths of the earth, The peaks of the mountains are His also. (NASB) The psalmist calls for us to come before the Lord and give thanks for all that He has done. His power as Lord over all is described as King who is above all gods. Does this statement give credence to the existence of other gods? The Lord is all powerful, drawing a parallel to His creation having power over all the earth, even to its depths.  Read more here:  Tehillim 95-Part1

Dr. Duane D. Miller received his Ph.D., M.S., and B.S. Degree in Chemical Engineering from The University of Akron Ohio. He is currently a Chemical Engineering Researcher. Duane’s research expertise has focused upon functional materials development for the control, conversion, and release of process gases in Energy production technologies. His R&D interests include computational chemistry, developing novel technologies for converting biomass to fuels and studying their fundamental interactions during the chemical conversion process. His past experience includes sorbent development for pre- and post-combustion CO2 and SO2 capture, selective absorption of H2S from methane streams, O2 capture for oxy-fuel combustion, photocatalytic reduction of alcohols, NOx reduction catalysis, the development of oxygen carriers to combust fossil fuels (CH4 and coal) for the chemical looping combustion processes, and the extraction of rare earth elements using patent pending sorbents. His research expertise has focused on operando-characterization using Infrared, Raman, and UV-Vis spectroscopy to observe the nature of the catalytic active sites and reaction intermediates under realistic reaction conditions, allowing direct correlation of molecular/electronic structures with catalyst performance during Gas-Solid / Liquid-Solid Adsorption and Photocatalytic Processes with real time online analysis of reaction products using ICP-MS and mass spectrometry. His current work involves a multi-disciplinary approach to developing, understanding, and improving the catalytic gasification of coal and methane, high temperature chemical looping combustion, and the catalytic decomposition and gasification of biomass and coal using novel microwave reactor.​ He has been studying the Hebrew Scriptures and the Torah for 20+ years and sharing what he has learned.
