.

Word Study

From NetBible Ps 145:18
The LORD is near to all who call upon Him; To all who call upon Him in truth.

  • near[07138] = nigh(in place, kindred or time), approachable, allied, at hand
  • sincerely and truth[0571] = firmness, faithfulness, sureness, reliability, honesty
    *from [0539] = to be certain He will answer

.
From NetBible Ps 145:19 and Ps 116:6
The Lord protects the simple (childlike); I was brought low [humbled and discouraged], and He saved/delivered me. –Ps 116:6 AMP
.
He will fulfill the desire of those who fear and worship Him [with awe-inspired reverence and obedience]; He also will hear their cry and will save/deilver them. –Ps 145:19 AMP

  • deliver[03467] = to save, to be liberated, to give victory to
    *from a primitive root, Greek [5614] = hosanna

From NetBible Jn 12:13

  • hosanna[5614] =
    From [03467] = to be liberated, saved, delivered, victorious
    and [04994] = we pray now please
  • The expression ῾Ωσαννά (Jwsanna, literally in Hebrew, “O Lord, save”) in the quotation from Ps 118:25-26 was probably by this time a familiar liturgical expression of praise, on the order of “Hail to the king,” although both the underlying Aramaic and Hebrew expressions meant “O Lord, save us.” As in Mark 11:9 the introductory ὡσαννά is followed by the words of Ps 118:25, εὐλογημένος ὁ ἐρχόμενος ἐν ὀνόματι κυρίου (euloghmeno” Jo ercomeno” en onomati kuriou), although in the Fourth Gospel the author adds for good measure καὶ ὁ βασιλεὺς τοῦ ᾿Ισραήλ (kai Jo basileu” tou Israhl). In words familiar to every Jew, the author is indicating that at this point every messianic expectation is now at the point of realization. It is clear from the words of the psalm shouted by the crowd that Jesus is being proclaimed as messianic king. See E. Lohse, TDNT9:682-84.* Hosannais an Aramaic expression that literally means, “help, I pray,” or “save, I pray.” By Jesus’ time it had become a strictly liturgical formula of praise, however, and was used as an exclamation of praise to God.* A quotation from Ps 118:25-26.

Buy the Truth – Sell It NOT!

December 29, 2018

Isaiah 55:1-2 AMPC … Wait and listen, everyone who is thirsty! Come to the waters; and he who has no money, come, buy and eat! Yes, come, buy [priceless, spiritual] wine and milk without money and without price [simply for the self-surrender that accepts the blessing]. 2 Why do you spend your money for that which is not bread, and your earnings for what does not satisfy? Hearken diligently to Me, and eat what is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness [the profuseness of spiritual joy].
.
The invitaion is to the thirsty, to come to the waters. To come, buy and eat — to buy with no money. What is being bought and eaten?

Proverbs 23:23Buy the truth and sell it not; not only that, but also get discernment and judgment, instruction and understanding.

From NetBible Pro 23:23

  • * “Getting truth” would mean getting training in the truth, and getting wisdom and understanding would mean developing the perception and practical knowledge of the truth.

.
Be careful what you eat
Deception abounds

“Your dwelling is in the midst of deceit; Through deceit they refuse to know Me,” declares the LORD. –Jer 9:6
Eat only what is good and nourishing
Causing you to grow in maturity
Diligently seek the truth
As one would seek hidden treasure
Prov 2:1-5;Jn 17:17
.

.
2 Peter 3:17-18 AMP … Therefore, [let me warn you] beloved, knowing these things beforehand, be on your guard so that you are not carried away by the error of unprincipled men [who distort doctrine] and fall from your own steadfastness [of mind, knowledge, truth, and faith], 18 but grow [spiritually mature] in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be glory (honor, majesty, splendor), both now and to the day of eternity. Amen.

Snake Bite??

November 23, 2018

.

What is the prevention of snake bites?

.
Jeremiah 8:8-9,10-11 AMP
8 “How can you say, ‘We are wise,
And the law of the Lord is with us [and we are learned in its language and teachings]’?
Behold, [the truth is that] the lying pen of the scribes
Has made the law into a lie [a mere code of ceremonial observances].
9 “The wise men are shamed,
They are dismayed and caught.
Behold, they have [manipulated and] rejected the [truth in the] word of the Lord,
And what kind of wisdom and insight do they have? ….

10 … even my prophets and priests are like that.
They are all frauds.
11 They offer superficial treatments
for my people’s mortal wound.
They give assurances of peace
when there is no peace.

17 “For behold, I am sending serpents among you,
Vipers which cannot be charmed,
And they will bite you,” says the Lord.

.

What is the cure for snake bites?

.
Jeremiah 8:22 AMP
22 Is there no balm in Gilead?
Is there no physician there?
Why then has not the [spiritual] health of the daughter of my people been restored?

.

.
Genesis 3:1 AMP
1 Now the serpent was more crafty (subtle, skilled in deceit) than any living creature of the field which the Lord God had made. And the serpent (Satan) said to the woman, “Can it really be that God has said, ‘You shall not eat from any tree of the garden’?”
.

What brings “healing” to the mortal wound?

.
Proverbs 4:20-23 NLT
My child, pay attention to what I say. Listen carefully to my words. Don’t lose sight of them. Let them penetrate deep into your heart, for they bring life to those who find them, and healing[04832] to their whole body. Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life.

From NetBible Prov 4:22

  • healing[04832] = medicine, cure(physician), sound mind, deliverance
    *from [07495]

Shelter Me

The name of the Lord is a strong tower

Psalm 91:4 NLT … He will shield you with his wings. He will shelter you with his feathers. His faithful promises are your armor and protection.

Word Study
.
From NetBible Pr 18:10
The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the [consistently] righteous man [upright and in right standing with God] runs into it and is safe, high [above evil] and strong.

  • * The “name of the Lord” is a metonymy of subject. The “name” here signifies not the personal name “Yahweh,” for that would be redundant in the expression “the name of Yahweh,” but the attributes of the Lord (cf. Exod 34:5-7) – here his power to protect.
  • “a tower of strength,” with “strength” regarded as attributive by most English versions. The metaphor “strong tower” indicates that God is a secure refuge.
  • * The metaphor of “running” to the Lord refers to a whole-hearted and unwavering trust in God’s protection (e.g., Isa 40:31).
  • * “is high” or “is inaccessible.” This military-type expression stresses the effect of the trust – security, being out of danger (see HALOT 1305 s.v. שׂגב). Other scriptures will supply the ways that God actually protects people who trust him.

.
From NetBible Ps 61:3
For You have been a shelter for me, A strong tower from the enemy.

  • shelter[04268] = refuge, from rain or storm/danger, from falsehood

.
From NetBible Ps 61:4
I will abide in Your tabernacle forever; I will trust in the cover of Your wings. Selah

  • cover[05643] = hiding place, shelter, secret place

Grieving – Feeling Alone and Rejected?

October 24, 2018


.
I was grieved, feeling alone and rejected(because of the Word), when I came upon the above cartoon. It made me smile and really encouraged me!
.
What do you do when you feel this way? These passages give some interesting insight!
.
Jesus is rejected in His home town –Mt 13:53-58
After this He hears about John’s beheading – what does He do?
=> He withdraws to a private, solitary place –Mt 14:13
This was a deserted, desolate place –Mt 14:15
.
It’s very interesting that the crowds followed Him
… to this desolate place and it’s here
… the crowd is shown compassion and sick are healed! –Mt 14:14
.
It’s here in this desolate place that the 5000 are fed! –Mt 14:13-21
.
Grieved, feeling alone and rejected because of the Word? Mt 13:21
=> Get alone with Christ
=> Let Him encourage you with the Word
=> You will be fed and have more than enough to share!
Mt 14:20
.
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.

8 We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed. We are perplexed, but not driven to despair. 9 We are hunted down, but never abandoned by God.
