Open My Ears – I Long to Hear!

But in the seventh year, he shall go free, without paying anything. 3 If he comes alone, he is to go free alone; but if he has a wife when he comes, she is to go with him. 4 If his master gives him a wife and she bears him sons or daughters, the woman and her children shall belong to her master, and only the man shall go free.

5 “But if the servant declares, ‘I love my master and my wife and children and do not want to go free,’ 6 then his master must take him before the judges. He shall take him to the door or the doorpost and pierce his ear with an awl. Then he will be his servant for life.

Spring Up – Spring Up O Well!

April 27, 2020

This is cool! Look at the invitation below – it’s to ALL who are thirsty – both believers and non-believers. I never noticed the invitation to believers before, it’s to keep coming to “drink”. It makes sense tho — if the “rivers of living water” are to keep flowing from those who believe=> they have to keep drinking! Also look how “bearing fruit(Revelation 22)” is related to this need to keep drinking!

Thirsty? Come with joy to drink the water of life.
=> Be refreshed, strengthened and equipped with His joy to send out the invitation to ALL those who are thirsty!

***
John 7:37-39 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
37 Now on the last day, the great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, “If anyone is thirsty, *let him come to Me and drink. 38 He who believes in Me, as the Scripture said, ‘From his innermost being will flow rivers of living water.’” 39 But this He spoke of the Spirit, whom those who believed in Him were to receive; for the Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.
Footnote:
*Or let him keep coming to Me and let him keep drinking

Revelation 22:1-2,17 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
1 Then he showed me a river of the water of life, clear as crystal, coming from the throne of God and of the Lamb, 2 in the middle of its street. On either side of the river was the tree of life, bearing twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit every month; and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. …
… 17 The Spirit and the bride say, “Come.” And let the one who hears say, “Come.” And let the one who is thirsty come; let the one who wishes take the water of life without cost.

Word Study
.
From NetBible Ps 56:4
In God (I will praise His word), In God I have put my trust; I will not fear. What can flesh do to me?

  • * praise His word = boast in His promise
  • * God’s “word” is here understood as an assuring promise of protection. Another option (2) is to translate, “in God I will boast [with] a word.” In this case, the “word” is a song of praise. The present translation reflects yet another option (3): In this case “I praise his word” is a parenthetical statement, with “his word” being the object of the verb.

.
From NetBible Ps 46:10
Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!

  • Be still and know = cease/stop striving and recognize, be at peace in the knowledge
    • * To the nations who rage against God and His people, this is a rebuke to stop fighting/ striving against the Sovereign Lord
    • * To God’s children this is a call to trust and rest secure in the Sovereign Lord’s protection
  • exalted means recognized as Sovereign King => The Lord of Hosts, King of Glory(Ps 24:10) who fights and delivers on behalf of His children(Ps 46:11)
