Almond Blossoms at the Door

May 30, 2010

Proverbs 8:34 Blessed is the man who listens to [08085]{hears,obeys} me, watching[08245] daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors.

Jeremiah 1:11-12 Moreover the word of the LORD came to me, saying, “Jeremiah, what do you see?” And I said, “I see a branch of an almond[08247] tree. ” … Then the LORD said to me, “You have seen well, for I am watching[08245]

Numbers 17:6-8 So Moses spoke to the children of Israel, and each of their leaders gave him a rod apiece, for each leader according to their fathers’ houses, twelve rods; and the rod of Aaron was among their rods. 7So Moses deposited the rods before the LORD in the tent of the testimony. 8Now it came to pass on the next day that Moses went into the tabernacle of witness, and behold, the rod of Aaron, of the house of Levi, had sprouted and put forth buds, had produced blossoms and yielded ripe almonds[08247].

The word for almond[08247] means earliest in bloom, wakeful, watchful as tho it never slept, it comes from the same word for watching[08245]. The rod of Aaron {the branch} laid in the Lord’s Presence all thru the night in the tent of the testimony. The next morning the rod the Lord had chosen had blossomed and generated the full fruit of almonds.

The one who hears, listens and obeys
Is found at the feet of  I AM

Speak, for Your servant hears[08085]! -1 Sam 3:10

Watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors
Kept safe under my wings thru the night.

The LORD will command His lovingkindness in the daytime; And His song will be with me in the night, a prayer to the God of my life. -Ps 42:8

Wait, expectantly wait at my feet
Covered
Kept thru the night …

I wait[06960] {look,hope} for the Lord,
I expectantly wait, my soul does wait,
And in His word do I hope.
My soul waits for the Lord
More than the watchmen for the morning;
Indeed, more than the watchmen for the morning. -Ps 130:5-6

Until in the doorway on the wings of dawn
Your blossoms appear, cascading
Shining, full of the sun’s morning light.

I will sing for joy in God,
Explode in praise from deep in my soul!
He dressed me up in a suit of salvation,
He outfitted me in a robe of righteousness,
As a bridegroom who puts on a tuxedo and a bride a jeweled tiara.
For as the earth bursts with spring wildflowers,
And as a garden cascades with blossoms,
So the Master, God, brings righteousness into full bloom
And puts praise on display before the nations. -Isa 61:10-11 MSG

Wings of Dawn

May 28, 2010

Song 6:10 Who is this that grows{rises} like the dawn,

Who are these who fly like a cloud and like the doves to their lattices{roosts}? -Isa 60:8

But for you who fear My name, the sun of righteousness will rise{dawn} with healing in its wings; and you will go forth and skip about like calves from the stall. -Mal 4:2

The path of the righteous is like the first gleam of dawn, shining ever brighter till the full light of day{perfect day}. -Prov 4:18

If I take the wings of the dawn, [and] if I dwell in the remotest part of the sea, even there Your hand will guide me, Your right hand will hold me fast. -Ps 139:9-10

For His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for life; Weeping may endure for a night, But joy comes in the morning{break of day}. -Ps 30:5

As beautiful as the full moon{white one},

Moreover the light of the {full}moon will be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun will be sevenfold, as the light of seven days, in the day that the LORD binds up the bruise of His people and heals the stroke of their wound. -Isa 30:26

Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave Himself up for her, so that He might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the Word, that He might present the church to Himself in glorious splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such things [that she might be holy and faultless]. -Eph 5:25-27

As pure as the sun,

And He was transfigured before them; and His face shone like the sun, and His garments became as white as light. -Mt 17:2

And all of us, as with unveiled face, [because we] continued to behold [in the Word of God] as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are constantly being transfigured into His very own image in ever increasing splendor and from one degree of glory to another; [for this comes] from the Lord [Who is] the Spirit. -2 Cor 3:18

The lamp of the body is the eye. If therefore your eye is good{single, clear, pure}, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light that is in you is darkness, how great is the darkness! -Mt 6:22-23

The sun will no more be your light by day, nor will the brightness of the moon shine on you, for the LORD will be your everlasting light, and your God will be your glory. Your sun will never set again, and your moon will wane no more; the LORD will be your everlasting light, and your days of sorrow will end. -Isa 60:19-20

And the city has no need of the sun or of the moon to shine on it, for the glory of God has illumined it, and its lamp is the Lamb. -Rev 21:23

As awesome as an army with banners{stars in procession}?

Those who have insight will shine brightly like the brightness of the expanse of heaven, and those who lead the many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever. -Dan 12:3

Do everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe as you hold out the word of life—in order that I may boast on the day of Christ that I did not run or labour for nothing.-Phil 2:14-16

Praise Him, sun and moon, praise Him, all you shining stars. -Ps 148:3

I Have Seen – the Healing Hand of God!

May 17, 2010

Healing Hand of God by Jeremy Camp

I have seen the many faces, I fear in the pain.
I have watched the tears fall plenty,
From heart ache and strength.
So if life’s journey, has you weary and afraid.
There’s rest in the shadow of his wings.

I have walked through the valleys,
The mountains and plains.
I have held the hand of freedom,
It washes all my stains.
If you feel the weight of many trials,
And burdens from this world.
There’s freedom in the shelter of the Lord.

I have touched the scars upon His hands,
To see if they were real.
He has walked the road before me,
He knows just how I feel.
When you feel there is not anyone,
Who understands your pain,
Just remember all of Jesus’ suffering.

🙂
I have seen, the healing hand of God,
Reaching out and mending broken hearts.
Taste and see the fullness of His peace,
And hold on to what’s being held out.
The healing hand of God.

Cast all your cares on Him,
For He cares for you.
He’s near to the broken and confused.
By His stripes,
Our spirit is renewed.
So enter in the joy prepared for you.

Hold on to what’s being held out
The healing hand of God

Praise the LORD! His healing hand has reached out to my brother Bob! Thank You LORD Jesus!!!! ………. We have seen the healing hand of God! Hallelu Yah!!

Ps 136:1 O GIVE thanks to the Lord, for He is good; for His mercy and loving-kindness endure forever.

My brother’s testimony!

The Lord knows all, sees all, and loves all.
If so, why doe’s he let bad things happen?
Maybe we need to be put back on the path.
Or we need to learn a lesson or 2 for his
greater glory, or to bring us closer to Him.
He has given me a 2nd chance, and I praise the name of the Lord!
So take a look at what happened to me, my past, and on the 11th. I am better for it. My body is being healed, medications I have taken since 1980, I don’t need anymore. He sees what is happening in your life 2. Why should He not do the same for U? 😉 Blessed be the name of the Lord! I love u Karen, and all of you there.

I See the LORD

May 15, 2010

Psalm 21:13 Be exalted{Rise Up}[07311], O LORD, in Your own strength! We will sing[07891] and praise[02167] Your power.

Isaiah 6:1 In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord{the sovereign master}[0136] sitting on a throne, high[07311] and lifted up, and the train of His robe filled the temple.

Exodus 15:2 The LORD is my strength and song[02176], And He has become my salvation; He is my God, and I will praise Him{prepare Him a habitation}[05115]; My father’s God, and I will exalt[07311] Him.

Isaiah 12:2-3 Behold, God is my salvation, I will trust and not be afraid; For YAH, the LORD, is my strength and song[02176]; He also has become my salvation. Therefore with joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation.

From Netbible Ps 21:13, Isa 6:1, Ex 15:2

*Be exalted[07311] – ruwm
to rise, rise up,
to be high, be set on high, lifted

From Netbible Ps 21:13
*Sing[07891][07788] – shiyr, shuwr

*Praise[02167] – zamar
a primitive root (perhaps ident. with 2168 through the idea
of striking with the fingers); properly, to touch the strings
or parts of a musical instrument, i.e. play upon it; to make
music, accompanied by the voice; hence to celebrate in song
and music

From Netbible Ex 15:2, Isa 12:2
*Song[02176] – zimrath
song of praise, song, music, melody from [02167]

Proclaim the Name of the LORD

May 13, 2010

Exodus 33:18-19 Then Moses said, “I pray You, show me Your glory!”
19Then He said, “I will make all My goodness pass before you, and I will proclaim the name of the LORD before you. I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and I will have compassion{show mercy} on whom I will have compassion{show mercy}.”

Exodus 34:5-7 Now the LORD descended in the cloud and stood with him{Moses} there, and proclaimed the name of the LORD. 6nd the LORD passed before him and proclaimed, “The LORD, the LORD God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abounding in goodness and truth, 7keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, by no means clearing the guilty , visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children and the children’s children to the third and the fourth generation.

These are the LORD’s response to the cry ‘show me Your glory’! To ‘see’ His glory is to ‘see’ His great mercy, His justice, His goodness and His truth!

Proclaiming His mercy, grace, longsuffering {slow to anger}, justice, goodness, truth and forgiveness are part of proclaiming His name.

Psalm 86:15-17 You, O Lord, are a God full of compassion, and gracious, longsuffering and abundant in mercy and truth. 16Oh, turn to me, and have mercy on me! Give Your strength to Your servant, And save the son of Your maidservant{save me, for I am your servant}. 17Show me a sign for good{a sign of Your goodness}, That those who hate me may see it and be ashamed, Because You, LORD, have helped me and comforted me.

As the Deer

May 1, 2010

Psalm 42:1-4 As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, O God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When can I go and meet with God? My tears have been my food day and night, while men say to me all day long, “Where is your God?” These things I remember as I pour out my soul: how I used to go with the multitude, leading the procession to the house of God, with shouts of joy and thanksgiving among the festive throng.

As The Deer

As the deer pants for the water
So my soul longs after you
You alone are my hearts desire
And I long to worship you

You alone are my strength, my shield
To You alone may my spirit yield
You alone are my hearts desire
And I long to worship you

I want You more than gold or silver
Only You can satisfy
You alone are the real joy-giver
And the apple of my eye

Psalm 63:1-5 O God, you are my God, earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for you, my body longs for you, in a dry and weary land where there is no water. I have seen you in the sanctuary and beheld your power and your glory. Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you. I will praise you as long as I live, and in your name I will lift up my hands. My soul will be satisfied as with the richest of foods; with singing lips my mouth will praise you.

There is a ‘place’ of worship held in the LORDs hands
Where only the Lamb can lead

Revelation 7:17 For the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd; He will lead them to springs of living water.

The center of the throne, from where the springs of living water flow.

 

Come follow the Lamb wherever He leads
Taste and see -Ps 34:8
With joy draw water from the well  -Isa 12:2-3
Living water from the river of delight.  -Ps 36:7-9

Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good.
His love endures forever. -Ps 136:1

Worship in Spirit and in Truth
Follow hard
From His hands, in His time
Taste and see
Take the free gift of the water of life.

Revelation 22:1-2, 17 Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, as clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb down the middle of the great street of the city. On each side of the river stood the tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding its fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations.

 

The Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let him who hears say, “Come!” Whoever is thirsty, let him come; and whoever wishes, let him take the free gift of the water of life.

From my article: Well of Living Waters
A picture of the Bride of Christ

Song 8:14 AMP [Joyfully the radiant bride turned to him, the one altogether lovely, the chief among ten thousand to her soul, and with unconcealed eagerness to begin her life of sweet companionship with him, she answered] Make haste, my beloved, and come quickly, like a gazelle or a young hart [and take me to our waiting home] upon the mountains of spices!
