March 21, 2018

Romans 13:12, 14The night is far spent, the day is at hand. Therefore let us cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the [full]armor of light. … 14 Clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ!
Be careful how you walk –Eph 5:15

Mt 10:16
Discern both good and evil.
Heb 5:14
Psalm 119:105, 104Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. … 104 Your precepts give me discernment. Therefore I hate every false way.

Quicken me


Quicken me, O LORD, according to Your Word –Ps 119:107
Teach me, Show me Your way, that I may know You Ex 33:13

No Weapon Succeeds!

March 20, 2018

No weapon forged to be used against you will succeed; you will refute everyone who tries to accuse you. This is what the Lord will do for his servants – I will vindicate them,” says the Lord. –Is 54:17

His arrows forged in the fire –Is 54:16
Are sharp in the heart of the King’s enemies –Ps 45:5
Mouthes like a sharp sword
His hidden polished arrows
Ready for releaseIs 49:2
Will run swiftly to their targets  –Ps 147:15

This triumph over opposition
Is the heritage of the servants of the Lord!


Isaiah 54:16-17 AMP … “Listen carefully, I have created the smith who blows on the fire of coals and who produces a weapon for its purpose; And I have created the destroyer to inflict ruin. 17 No weapon that is formed against you will succeed; And every tongue that rises against you in judgment you will condemn. This [peace, righteousness, security, and triumph over opposition] is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and this is their vindication from Me,” says the Lord.

Psalm 120:2-4 AMPC … Deliver me, O Lord, from lying lips and from deceitful tongues.
3 What shall be given to you? Or what more shall be done to you, you deceitful tongue?—
4 Sharp arrows of a [mighty] warrior, with [glowing] coals of the broom tree!


As the polished arrows of the Lord are released-The King’s enemies flee-They will attack you from one direction-But they will scatter from you in seven-No weapon forged against you will succeed! –Is54:17;Dt 28:7


Word Study
From NetBible Is 49:2
He has made My mouth like a sharp sword, In the shadow of His hand He has concealed Me; And He has also made Me a select arrow, He has hidden Me in His quiver.

  • * The Lord holds his hand on the servant, ready to draw and use him at the appropriate time. The servant is like a sharpened arrow reserved in a quiver for just the right moment.

From NetBible Ps 120:4

  • * “with coals of the wood of the broom plant.” The wood of the broom plant was used to make charcoal, which in turn was used to fuel the fire used to forge the arrowheads.


Press On!

Sometimes faith makes you look stupid – until it starts to rain!

Hebrews 12:1-3 Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, 2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. 3 Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.

Holy Spirit Fire = Shine!

March 15, 2018

Holy Spirit fire
An all consuming fire –
Heb 12:29
Purifying tender hearts to love –
1Pe 1:22-23
Burning away the dross –Jer 23:28-29
Pure hearts made alive
SEE!  –
Mt 5:8
Pure hearts made alive
Burning with the Living Word –
Lk 24:32
His Word a burning fire 

Can not be containedJer 20:9
For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy. –Rev 19:10


Keep your loins girded with Truth
Dressed ready for service
Lamps burning  –
Lk 12:35
Shine bright the light of Christ!
A city on a hill cannot be hidden. –Mt 5:14


Hebrews 12:25-29 AMP … See to it that you do not refuse [to listen to] Him who is speaking [to you now]. For if those [sons of Israel] did not escape when they refused [to listen to] him who warned them on earth [revealing God’s will], how much less will we escape if we turn our backs on Him who warns from heaven? 26 His voice shook the earth [at Mount Sinai] then, but now He has given a promise, saying, “Yet once more I will shake not only the earth, but also the [starry] heaven.” 27 Now this [expression], “Yet once more,” indicates the removal and final transformation of all those things which can be shaken—that is, of that which has been created—so that those things which cannot be shaken may remain.
28 Therefore, since we receive a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us show gratitude, and offer to God pleasing service and acceptable worship with reverence and awe; 29 for our God is [indeed] a consuming fire.

Mark 13:31 AMP … Heaven and earth [as now known] will pass away, but My[Jesus] words will not pass away!

His Word Runs Swiftly

March 6, 2018

Matthew 10:26-28Therefore do not fear them, for there is nothing concealed that will not be revealed, or hidden that will not be known. 27 What I tell you in the darkness, speak in the light; and what you hear whispered in your ear, proclaim upon the housetops. 28 Do not fear those who kill the body but are unable to kill the soul; but rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

Do not be afraid
Boldly proclaim the truth
Truth revealed by the Spirit of Truth –
Jn 16:13
In the secret place of the Most HighPs 91:4
Proclaim it from the rooftops!
Revelation 19:11-13And I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse, and He who sat on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and wages war. 12 His eyes are a flame of fire, and on His head are many diadems; and He has a name written on Him which no one knows except Himself. 13 He is clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God.
His word released runs swiftly to its target –Ps 147:15
He breathes on it and living waters flow –Ps 147:18
Not by might nor by power, but by His Spirit –
Zech 4:6
He watches over His word to perform itJer 1:12
The Word of God – Faithful and true
=> will not return void!
Isaiah 55:10-11 NASB … For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return there without watering the earth and making it bear and sprout, and furnishing seed to the sower and bread to the eater; 11 So will My word be which goes forth from My mouth; It will not return to Me empty, without accomplishing what I desire, and without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it.

His word released runs swiftly to its target-He breathes on it & living waters flow-Not by might nor by power-but by His Spirit-His Truth revealed in the secret place-Boldly proclaim it! #FearNot

Talitha Koum – Arise

February 6, 2018

Ponder Jesus stretching out His hand to raise someone up by gently taking their hand. This is powerful!!!

Artist: Michael Page
Talitha Koum – Yeshua (Jesus) took the hand of the dead girl and said to her, “Talitha koum” [meaning “little one, arise”]. I have allowed the words He spoke to evoke the idea of his talith, or prayer shawl, having played a part in this miracle as it had moments before with the healing of the lady who grasped the tzitzit fringe on the corners of His talith – Matthew 5.


Mark 1:29-31 NET … Now as soon as they left the synagogue, they entered Simon and Andrew’s house, with James and John. 30 Simon’s mother-in-law was lying down, sick with a fever, so they spoke to Jesus at once about her. 31 He came and raised her up by gently taking her hand. Then the fever left her and she began to serve them.

Mark 5:39-42 NET … When he entered he said to them, “Why are you distressed and weeping? The child is not dead but asleep.” 40 And they began making fun of him. But he put them all outside and he took the child’s father and mother and his own companions and went into the room where the child was. 41 Then, gently taking the child by the hand, he said to her, “Talitha koum,” which means, “Little girl, I say to you, get up{arise}.” 42 The girl got up at once and began to walk around (she was twelve years old). They were completely astonished at this. 

The phrase Talitha Koum is probably linked to the Tallit – the hem of the prayer shawl Jesus wore.

In Mark 5:41 we read: Then Yahshua “took the child by the hand, and said to her, “Tallita kumi.” The text says this Hebrew phrase is to be interpreted, “Damsel, I say to you arise{kumi/koum[2891]}.” It seems this interpreting phrase may have been added to the gospel at a later time in an attempt to interpret “Tallita kumi.” The reason for believing this is that Tallita is not Hebrew for damsel or young girl. A more accurate translation of Tallita kumi is “ Arise to my Tallit or Arise even as my Tallit. A dramatic picture of Yahshua lifting her up with one hand and raising his Tallit heavenward with the other which is a customary way of prayer.


Did you see it?!!!!!! As Jesus gently takes someone’s hand to “raise” them up, the fringe – the hem of His prayer shawl rises along with His hand and arm. A beautiful image of Healing rising in His wings!


Word Study
Hem = Healing in His Wings
Malachi 4:2 … But to you who fear My name The Sun of Righteousness shall arise with healing in His wings; 

From NetBible Mal 4:2

  • wings[03671] = wing, extremity, edge, winged, border, corner, shirt(of garment)
    =>Ruth 2:12  … … May the LORD, the God of Israel, under whose wings [03671] you have come to take refuge, reward you fully
    =>Ruth 3:9 … “Who are you?” he asked. “I am your servant Ruth,” she said. “Spread the corner of your garment [03671] over me, since you are a kinsman-redeemer.”

Luke 8:44 … She came up behind Jesus and touched the fringe of His robe. Immediately, the bleeding stopped.

From NetBible Lk 8:44

  • * The edge of his cloak refers to the kraspedon, the blue tassel{ tzitzit } on the garment that symbolized a Jewish man’s obedience to the law (Num 15:37-41). The woman thus touched the very part of Jesus’ clothing that indicated his ritual purity. {The issue of blood would have made her ritually unclean}
  • fringe/hem[2899] = tassel: the Jews had such appendages attached to their mantles to remind them of the law

Mark 6:56Wherever He entered into villages, cities, or in the country, they laid the sick in the marketplaces, and begged Him that they might just touch the hem[2899] of His garment. And as many as touched Him were made well.
Matthew 23:5But they do all their deeds to be noticed by men; for they broaden their phylacteries and lengthen the tassels[2899] of their garments.

From NetBible Mt 23:5

  • * Phylacteries were small leather cases containing OT scripture verses, worn on the arm and forehead by Jews, especially when praying. The custom was derived from such OT passages as(Ex 13:9,16; Dt 6:8, 11:18)
  • * Tassels refer to the tassels that a male Israelite was obligated to wear on the four corners of his outer garment according to the Mosaic law (Num 15:38; Dt 22:12).

Children’s Bread – Taste and See!

February 1, 2018

Matthew 15:21-25 NASB … Jesus went away from there, and withdrew into the district of Tyre and Sidon. 22 And a Canaanite woman from that region came out and began to cry out, saying, “Have mercy on me, Lord, Son of David; my daughter is cruelly demon-possessed.” 23 But He did not answer her a word. And His disciples came and implored Him, saying, “Send her away, because she keeps shouting at us.” 24 But He answered and said, “I was sent only to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.” 25 But she came and began to bow down before Him, saying, “Lord, help me!” 26 And He answered and said, “It is not good to take the children’s bread and throw it to the dogs.” 27 But she said, “Yes, Lord; but even the dogs feed on the crumbs which fall from their masters’ table.” 28 Then Jesus said to her, “O woman, your faith is great; it shall be done for you as you wish.” And her daughter was healed at once.

From NetBible Mt 15:25Mt 15:28
25 But she came and began to bow down before Him, saying, “Lord, help me!” …
28 Then Jesus said to her, “O woman, your faith is great; it shall be done for you as you wish.” And her daughter was healed at once.

  • bow down[4352]proskuneo = to kiss the hand towards one (meaning to kiss, like a dog licking his master’s hand), in token of reverence, prostrate oneself(or kneel) in homage – worship, adoration
  • healed[2390] = cure, made whole

*proskuneo = also captures the ideas from “Kiss the Son” in Psalm 2 and worship in Spirit and Truth!!!!

From NetBible Ps 2:11-12
11 Serve the LORD with reverence And rejoice with trembling. 12 Kiss the Son(Do homage to the Son), that He not become angry, and you perish in the way; For His wrath may soon be kindled. How blessed are all who take refuge in Him!

  • * The Hebrew verb translated “serve” refers here to submitting to the Lord’s sovereignty as expressed through the rule of the Davidic king. Such “service” would involve maintaining allegiance to the Davidic king by paying tribute on a regular basis.
  • * Kiss the Son = in trembling kiss His feet, pay homage in purity, pay homage in good faith
  • * The homage is to the Lord of Psalm 2:2 and to the Son of Psalm 2:7 — the Messiah King. Homage, kissing a King also implies humble submission.
  • kiss[05401] = HEBREW nashaq: kiss


From NetBible Jn 4:23-24
23 But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. 24 God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.

  • worship[4352] = GREEK proskuneo: to kiss, like a dog licking his master’s hand
