The Legend of Honi the Circle Maker

August 31, 2013

There is a book called “The Circle Maker” by Mark Batterson, making it’s rounds in christian churches. The book is about a “new way” to pray based on the legend of Honi the circle maker. It claims that you will learn how to “dream big”, “pray hard” and “think long”.

Right off the bat in this video we see Mark drawing a clockwise circle in chalk around himself. Honi is also depicted drawing a circle in the sand with a staff.

A quick search on google for clockwise chalk circles reveals that this technique is called a magic circle or casting a circle used in ritual magic. It is used in Wicca. The technique may or may not be physical as stated here:
Magic Circle

Mark encourages people to “circle” promises in the bible, “circle” your family, “circle” your kids. We see these circles need not be physical — they can be “visualized”. It is very disturbing to see a model for christian prayer which uses a technique from witchcraft to obtain power or answered prayer. This technique is found nowhere in the bible.

This is the technique that Honi the circle maker used to get his prayer for rain answered. Mark calls him a legend.

The Legend of Honi the Circle Maker

The legend of Honi is found in the jewish book of legends — this is stated on the circle maker site:
http://www.thecirclemaker.com/resources/The%20Circle%20Maker%20Sermon%201%20-%20The%20Legend%20of%20the%20Circle%20Maker.pdf

Honi the circle maker stood firm inside his circle drawn in the sand until his prayer for rain was answered, this is the legend.

Honi as a Prayer Model?

 

My question is on what foundation was he standing? What foundation does this book encourage us to stand on? Is it the Rock – God’s word or Christ? If so, why are we not encouraged to pray in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ? Why does this circle making technique not appear in the bible, but is easily found in ritual magic? Could this be why scripture warns against giving heed to Jewish fables – “legends”?

Titus 1:13-14

Amplified Bible (AMP)
13 And this account of them is [really] true. Because it is [true], rebuke them sharply [deal sternly, even severely with them], so that they may be sound in the faith and free from error,
14 [And may show their soundness by] ceasing to give attention to Jewish myths and fables or to rules [laid down] by [mere] men who reject and turn their backs on the Truth.

Matthew 7:21-23
New International Version (NIV)
True and False Disciples

21 “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ 23 Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’

Matthew 7:24-26
New American Standard Bible (NASB)
The Two Foundations

24 “Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts on them, may be compared to a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and yet it did not fall, for it had been founded on the rock. 26 Everyone who hears these words of Mine and does not act on them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand.

1 Corinthians 10:4
New American Standard Bible (NASB)
4 and all drank the same spiritual drink, for they were drinking from a spiritual rock which followed them; and the rock was Christ.

Psalm 40:1-4
New American Standard Bible (NASB)
God Sustains His Servant.

For the choir director. A Psalm of David.

1 I waited patiently for the Lord;
And He inclined to me and heard my cry.
2 He brought me up out of the pit of destruction, out of the miry clay,
And He set my feet upon a rock making my footsteps firm.
3 He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God;
Many will see and fear
And will trust in the Lord.
4 How blessed is the man who has made the Lord his trust,
And has not turned to the proud, nor to those who lapse into falsehood.

John 16:24
New American Standard Bible (NASB)
24 Until now you have asked for nothing in My name; ask and you will receive, so that your joy may be made full.

Honi the Circle Maker – A Prophet of God?

August 28, 2013

There is a book called “The Circle Maker” by Mark Batterson, making it’s rounds in christian churches.
Sample chapters are found here:
http://thecirclemaker.com/The_Circle_Maker_Sampler.pdf

Quote from above sample chapter 1:

And God was nowhere to be heard. But there was one man, an eccentric sage who lived outside the walls of Jerusalem, who dared to pray anyway. His name was Honi. And even if people could no longer hear God, he believed that God could still hear them.

*Notice that Honi did not hear from the Lord

A true prophet hears from the Lord
John 5:30I[Jesus] am able to do nothing from Myself [independently, of My own accord—but only as I am taught by God and as I get His orders]. Even as I hear, I judge [I decide as I am bidden to decide. As the voice comes to Me, so I give a decision], and My judgment is right (just, righteous), because I do not seek or consult My own will [I have no desire to do what is pleasing to Myself, My own aim, My own purpose] but only the will and pleasure of the Father Who sent Me.

Quote from above sample chapter 1:

With a six-foot staff in his hand, Honi began to turn like a math compass. … Honi stood inside the circle he had drawn. Then he dropped to his knees and raised his hands to heaven. With the authority of the prophet Elijah who called down fire from heaven, Honi called down rain.

Is this a new biblical way to pray – or a practice from the occult?

.

Wiccan prayer circle book:
Here is the circle maker:

*Notice how Honi is compared to the true prophet Elijah. Notice also that Elijah unlike Honi heard from the Lord before he acted.

1 Kings 18:1After many days, the word of the Lord came to Elijah in the third year, saying, Go, show yourself to Ahab, and I will send rain upon the earth.

Quote from above sample chapter 2:

If your prayers aren’t impossible to you, they are insulting to God.

Consider the Lord’s prayer – is praying for daily bread insulting to the Lord? -Mt6:9-13

The Word – Logos & Dabar

August 24, 2013

John 1:1-3In the beginning was the Word[3056], and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being.

From NetBible Jn 1:1

  • The Word[3056]logos = speech uttered by a living voice, the sayings of God
    *In John, denotes the essential Word of God, Jesus Christ, the personal wisdom and power in union with God, his minister in creation and government of the universe, the cause of all the world’s life both physical and ethical, which for the procurement of man’s salvation put on human nature in the person of Jesus the Messiah, the second person in the Godhead, and shone forth conspicuously from His words and deeds.
    ++++
    This term was familiar to the Jews and in their writings long before a Greek philosopher named Heraclitus used the term Logos around 600 B.C. to designate the divine reason or plan which coordinates a changing universe. This word was well suited to John’s purpose in John 1.

“In the beginning” echoes Genesis 1:1. Notice the power of the divine word in creation. Notice also that both God’s spoken word and God’s Spirit are involved in creation.

Genesis 1:1-3In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light.

Notice the wording in Isaiah 55:11 – the word from God’s mouth will not return void. The creative power of His divine word spoken from His mouth will accomplish what He intends.

Isaiah 55:11 … So will My word[01697] be which goes forth from My mouth; It will not return to Me empty{void}, Without accomplishing what I desire, And without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it.

From NetBible Isa 55:11

  • word[01697] = speech, saying, utterance
    -from [01696] = speak, declare, promise, sing
  • accomplish[06213] = fashion, make, produce

Hebrews 4:12For the word[3056] of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two–edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

Ephesians 6:17 … And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word[4487]rhema of God.

2 Timothy 3:16All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching[1319], rebuking[1649], correcting[1882] and training[3809] in righteousness …

2 Timothy 4:2Preach the word[3056]; be ready in season and out of season; reprove[1651], rebuke[2008], exhort[2008], with great patience and instruction[1322].

From NetBible He4:12;Eph6:17;2Tim 3:16,4:2

  • word[3056]logos = speech uttered by a living voice, the sayings of God
  • word[4487]rhema = speech, discourse uttered by a living voice
    -from [4483] = to pour forth, utter
  • teaching[1319] = instruction, doctrine
    -from [1320] = Master teacher(Jesus)
    -from [1321] = to teach, instruct, distill doctrine
  • rebuking[1649] = reproofing
    -from [1651] = to convict, expose, correct
  • correction[1882] = to bring back, restore to upright state
  • training[3809] =  instruction, disciplinary correction
  • rebuke[2008] = to admonish or charge sharply
  • exhort[3870] = to call to one’s side for instruction, teaching, comfort, encouragement, admonishment
  • instruction[1322] =  the act of teaching, doctrine
    -from [1321] = to teach, instruct, distill doctrine

Notice in both the OT & NT the word written or spoken is living – the Holy Spirit is present to breathe and delivers it with creative power. The Hebrew has a broad definition and no difference between prophetic utterance or written record. In the OT the word is associated with wisdom, in John the wisdom{light} is revealed in the person of Jesus Christ.

1 Corinthians 1:30 AMP …  But it is from Him that you have your life in Christ Jesus, Whom God made our Wisdom from God, [revealed to us a knowledge of the divine plan of salvation previously hidden, manifesting itself as] our Righteousness [thus making us upright and putting us in right standing with God], and our Consecration [making us pure and holy], and our Redemption [providing our ransom from eternal penalty for sin].

Proverbs 5:1-2 AMP … My son, be attentive to my Wisdom [godly Wisdom learned by actual and costly experience], and incline your ear to my understanding [of what is becoming and prudent for you] … That you may exercise proper discrimination and discretion and your lips may guard and keep knowledge and the wise answer [to temptation].
KJV … bow thine ear

Bow your ear is the opposite of listening without application. Bow you ear, humbly desire to hear and apply wisdom so that you may act with foresight & speak with insight!

Bow Your Ear

August 24, 2013

Isaiah 50:4The Sovereign LORD has given me an instructed tongue, to know the word that sustains the weary. He wakens me morning by morning, wakens my ear to listen like one being taught.

From NetBible Isa 50:4

  • learned[03928] = taught, discipled, instructed
  • wakens[05782] = rouses, to be triumphant
    – from primitive root (rather identical with [05783] through the idea of opening the eyes)
  • to hear[08085] = listen(attentively) to obey, to perceive(intelligently) by ear

This sounds very similar to the instruction to bow your ear.

Bow your ear to hear and apply wisdom

From: Bow Your Ear{prayer}

Proverbs 5:1-2 AMP … My son, be attentive to my Wisdom [godly Wisdom learned by actual and costly experience], and incline your ear to my understanding [of what is becoming and prudent for you] … That you may exercise proper discrimination and discretion and your lips may guard and keep knowledge and the wise answer [to temptation].
KJV … bow thine ear

  • Bow your ear is the opposite of listening without application.
  • Bow you ear, humbly desire to hear and apply wisdom
    –> so that you may act with foresight & speak with insight!

Listening ears, ears that are bowed towards the Lord:

  • Listen like one being taught, discipled
  • Humbly desire to hear and apply the wisdom they hear
  • Intelligently perceive – eyes are opened
  • Yield an instructed tongue
  • Yield a word that sustains the weary

Proverbs 15:23 AMP … A man has joy in making an apt answer, and a word spoken at the right moment—how good it is!

Proverbs 22:17-19 AMP … Listen (consent and submit){Bow your ear} to the words of the wise, and apply your mind to my knowledge; For it will be pleasant{pleasing} if you keep them in your mind [believing them]; your lips will be accustomed to [confessing] them. So that your trust (belief, reliance, support, and confidence) may be in the Lord, I have made known these things to you today, even to you.

Proverbs 25:11-12 AMP … A word fitly spoken and in due season is like apples of gold in settings of silver. Like an earring or nose ring of gold or an ornament of fine gold is a wise reprover to an ear that listens and obeys.

Luke 12:6-7 AMP … Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? And [yet] not one of them is forgotten or uncared for in the presence of God. But [even] the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Do not be struck with fear or seized with alarm; you are of greater worth than many [flocks] of sparrows.

Draw Me Away!

August 15, 2013

Song 1:2-4 … Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth — For your love is better than wine. Because of the fragrance of your good ointments, Your name is ointment poured forth; Therefore the virgins love you. Draw me away after you and let us run together! The king has brought me into his chambers.” “We will rejoice in you and be glad; We will extol your love more than wine. The upright love you.”

Jeremiah 31:3“Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love; Therefore with lovingkindness{unfailing love} I have drawn you”.

Psalm 63:2-3 , 7-8… 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. … Because you are my help, I sing in the shadow of your wings. My soul follows hard after You; Your right hand upholds me.

Draw Me Away!

[LORD]Draw me, draw me, draw me away
Draw me, draw me, draw me away.

For you have drawn{loved} me with an everlasting love
A love more delightful than wine.

You’ve stolen{captured} my heart
I’ve tasted and seen
And now I run after thee.

The above scripture and song were on my mind again. From the Word Study below we see that the cry “Draw me away!” is figure of speech, a cry to the Lord to be led or captured in His “cords of love”.

  • It is the cry of one who wants to be a willing captive of the Lord’s love, His goodness.
  • It’s the cry of one who has beheld the glory of the Lord in His sanctuary.
  • It’s the cry of one who has tasted and seen that
    • The Lord’s love is more delightful than wine
    • The Lord’s love is better than life
    • The Lord’s love is everlasting and unfailing

It is a desperate cry, an eager desire to experience the Lord’s love once again. A desire to follow hard and run with enough determination to catch the Lord who is being pursued. Once the Lord is “caught” – O what rejoicing beneath His wings!

  • Spin, leap with joy
  • in gladness shine with joy
  • Sing with lips that glorify the Lord!

The Lord reminded me of the best reason to cry out “Draw me away”! The Lord promises to make this place of the King’s chamber, His sanctuary, this place beneath His wings, the throne, the place He rests His feet – GLORIOUS!

Isaiah 60:13The glory of Lebanon shall come to you, The cypress, the pine, and the box tree together, To beautify the place of My sanctuary; And I will make the place of My feet glorious.

.

[LORD]Draw me, draw me, draw me away
Draw me, draw me, draw me away.

What glorious rest  -Isa 11:10,4:5;Ps 66:2
O how I adore You LORD!

From NetBible Song 1:4;Jer 31:3

  • Draw[04900] = to lead
    *The verb מָשַׁךְ (mashakh, “draw”) is a figurative expression (hypocatastasis) which draws an implied comparison between the physical acting of leading a person with the romantic action of leading a person in love. Elsewhere it is used figuratively of a master gently leading an animal with leather cords (Hos 11:4) and of a military victor leading his captives (Jer 31:3). The point of comparison might be that the woman wants to be the willing captive of the love of her beloved, that is, a willing prisoner of his love.
  • run after[07323] = to eagerly hurry, chase
  • rejoice[01523] = spin, circle around(dance, leap) in joy
  • be glad[08055] = be merry, to brighten up, shine in joy
  • everlasting love[0160] = God’s love to His people
  • lovingkindness[02617] = unfailing love, goodness, mercy, kindness, faithfulness

From NetBible Ps 63:8

  • follow hard[01692] = a determination to cling, cleave, be joined, to run after with determination to overtake and capture

From NetBible Is 60:13

  • sanctuary[04720] = temple, tabernacle, sacred holy place
    Ezek 43:7, where the Lord’s throne is called the “place of the soles of my feet.”
    Isa 66:1, the Lord’s throne is where He rests His feet – He rests/abides
    “Heaven is My throne, And earth is My footstool. Where is the house that you will build Me? And where is the place of My rest?”
