Showers of Blessings Around His Holy Hill

May 9, 2018

.
Ezekiel 34:26-27 AMPC … And I will make them and the places round about My hill a blessing, and I will cause the showers to come down in their season; there shall be showers of blessing [of good insured by God’s favor].

From NetBible Ezek 34:26
*“showers of blessing.” Abundant rain, which in turn produces fruit and crops (v. 27), is a covenantal blessing for obedience (Lev 26:4).

.
Proverbs 16:15 NLT … When the King smiles, there is life; His favor refreshes like a gentle rain.
.

A Song:
Showers of blessings
Showers of blessings
As the King’s rain{reign} falls.

Showers of blessings
Showers of refreshing
Around His holy hill Ps 43:3-4
Open wide your mouth and Ps 81:10
Be filled Eph 5:18
Exceeding joy
Full of glory  –1Pe 1:8
Around His holy hill.

Showers of blessings
Showers of refreshing
As the King’s rain{reign} falls
Around His holy hill
He smiles …
.
Ephesians 5:17-21For this reason do not be foolish, but be wise by understanding what the Lord’s will is. 18 Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit. 19 speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody with your heart to the Lord; 20 always giving thanks to God the Father for everything{each other}, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, 21 and submitting to one another out of reverence for Christ.
.
Psalm 43:3-4O send out Your light and Your truth, let them guide me; Let them bring me to Your holy hill to Your dwelling places, the places where You live{the place of Your presence/ tabernacles}. 4 Then I will go to the altar of God, To God my exceeding joy; And with my harp I will praise You, O God, my God.

Place of Safety

May 7, 2018

Psalm 17:8 NLT … Guard me as the apple of your eye. Hide me in the shadow of your wings.
.
In times of trouble
REMEMBER
Who your place of safety is
Run to Him
Be hidden and kept safe beneath His wings …
.

Sometimes you just need to declare this about the Lord: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; He is my God, and I trust Him.

.
Psalm 91:1-4 NLT
1 Those who live in the shelter of the Most High
will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
2 This I declare about the Lord Jesus:
He alone is my refuge, my place of safety;
He is my God, and I trust Him.
3 For He will rescue you from every trap
and protect you from deadly disease.
4 He will cover you with His feathers.
He will shelter you with His wings.
His faithful promises are your armor and protection.

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.

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.

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.

Word Study
.
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

The Pure Sure Cure

January 22, 2018

A Song:
Washed by the blood of the Lamb
Crimson sins washed
White as snow
Pure and holy
The blood of the Lamb
The sure cure
Washed by the blood
Pure and holy
The blood of the Lamb
The Passover Lamb –1Cor 5:7
The sure cure
Pure and holy …
.

.
Isaiah 1:18 AMP … Come now, and let us reason together, says the Lord. Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be like {white}wool.

From NetBible Isa 1:18

  • This purification will only occur if the people repent and change their ways.
  • The point is not that the sins will be covered up, though still retained. … The people’s sins will be removed and replaced by ethical purity. The sins that are now as obvious as the color red will be washed away and the ones who are sinful will be transformed.

.
Psalm 51:2,7,10-13 AMPC … Wash me thoroughly [and repeatedly] from my iniquity and guilt and cleanse me and make me wholly pure from my sin! …
… 7 Purify me with hyssop, and I shall be clean [ceremonially]; wash me, and I shall [in reality] be whiter than snow. …

From NetBible Ps 51:7

  • * Hyssop was a small plant used to apply water (or blood) in purification rites(Ex 12:22;Lev 14:4-6, 49-52;Num 19:6-18)
  • * Whiteness here symbolizes the moral purity resulting from forgiveness

10 Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right, persevering, and steadfast spirit within me. 11 Cast me not away from Your presence and take not Your Holy Spirit from me. 12 Restore to me the joy of Your salvation and uphold me with a willing spirit. 13 Then will I teach transgressors Your ways, and sinners shall be converted and return to You.
