Speak His Word = Truth Manifest

March 4, 2018

Luke 8:16-18 AMP … Now no one lights a lamp and then covers it with a container [to hide it], or puts it under a bed; instead, he puts it on a lampstand, so that those who come in may see the light. 17 For there is nothing hidden that will not become evident, nor anything secret that will not be known and come out into the open. 18 So be careful how you listen; for whoever has [a teachable heart], to him more [understanding] will be given; and whoever does not have [a longing for truth], even what he thinks he has will be taken away from him.

Don’t be afraid anymore
Keep on speaking His Word
Do not be silent –
Acts 18:9-10
The Lord of Hosts is with you. –Ps 46:11

His Sword penetrates to the coreHeb 4:12

Ephesians 5:6-11 NASB … Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience. 7 Therefore do not be partakers with them; 8 for you were formerly darkness, but now you are Light in the Lord; walk as children of Light 9 (for the fruit of the Light consists in all goodness and righteousness and truth), 10 trying to learn what is pleasing to the Lord. 11 Do not participate in the unfruitful deeds of darkness, but instead even expose them.

An Assuring Word

Jeremiah 17:14 AMP
14 Heal me, O Lord, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved, for You are my praise.

From NetBible Jer 17:14

  • save[03467] = deliver, to give victory, to help,preserve, rescue
  • praise[08416] = song or hymn, adoration, glory
    *from [01984] = to shine, boast, glory, celebrate

From BlueLetterBible

  • praise[08416] = person or thing in which one glories -Jer 17:14 &
    Due 10:21 … He is your praise, and He is your God, who has done for you these great and awesome things which your eyes have seen.

Heal me O Lord
And I will be healed
Save me
And I will be saved

Heal me O Lord
And I will be healed
Send forth
Your assuring word –Ps 107:20

For You alone are my praise
Jesus You are my praise

A healing balm poured forth –Jer 8:22
Jesus You alone are my praise.

 

Psalm 107:20 AMP
20 He sends forth His {assuring}word and heals them and rescues them from the pit and destruction.

From NetBible Ps 107:20

  • word[01697] = speech, saying, utterance

    *Heb “he sent his word.” This probably refers to an oracle of assurance which announced his intention to intervene (see L. C. Allen, Psalms 101-150 [WBC], 59)

  • heals[07495] = to mend (by stitching), to cure, repair, make whole
  • rescues[04422] = delivered, saved, preserved

    *Heb “he rescued from their traps.” The Hebrew wordשְׁחִית (shekhit, “trap”) occurs only here and in Lam 4:20, where it refers to a trap or pit in which one is captured. Because of the rarity of the term and the absence of an object with the verb “rescued,” some prefer to emend the text of Ps 107:20, reading מִשַׁחַת חַיָּתָם (mishakhat khayyatam, “[he rescued] their lives from the pit”). Note also NIV “from the grave,” which interprets the “pit” as Sheol or the grave.

 

Jeremiah 8:22 AMP
Is there no balm{medicinal ointment} in Gilead? Is there no physician there? Why then is not the health of the daughter of my people restored? [Because Zion no longer enjoyed the presence of the Great Physician!]

From NetBible Jer 8:22

  • *balm = medicinal ointment
  • *Jeremiah is lamenting that though there is a remedy available for the recovery of his people they have not availed themselves of it.

From the LORD Comes Deliverance

May 29, 2013

Psalm 3
A psalm of David, written when he fled from his son Absalom.

O LORD, how many are my foes! How many rise up against me!
Many are saying of me, “God will not deliver him.” Selah

But You, O LORD, are a shield about me, My glory, and the One who lifts my head.

To the Lord I cried out, and He answered me from His Holy Hill. (Selah)

I lie down and sleep; I wake again, because the LORD sustains{protects} me.

I will not fear the tens of thousands drawn up against me on every side. Arise, O LORD! Deliver me, O my God! Strike all my enemies on the jaw; break the teeth of the wicked.

From the LORD comes deliverance. May Your blessing be on Your people. Selah

***

Deliverance comes from the LORD alone

Who may ascend into the hill of the LORD? And who may stand in His holy place? –> He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to an idol or swear by what is false. He will receive blessing from the LORD and vindication from God his Saviour. -Ps 24:3-5

He is the King of Glory!
The LORD strong and mighty
Mighty in battle!

The LORD of hosts, He is the King of glory!

Lift up your heads, O gates{of praise}, And be lifted up, O ancient doors, That the King of glory may come in! -Ps24:7-10;Ps84:5;Is 60:18

Sing and make music to the LORD
Offer sacrifices of joy in His tabernacle.
-Ps27:6

Be lifted up in triumph as the blessing of the Lord rests upon you!

Word Study
From NetBible Ps 3

  • The psalmist acknowledges that he is confronted by many enemies (vv. 1-2). But, alluding to a divine oracle he has received (vv. 4-5), he affirms his confidence in God’s ability to protect him (vv. 3, 6) and requests that God make his promise a reality (vv. 7-8).

From NetBible Ps 3:4

  • Sometime after the crisis arose, the psalmist prayed to the Lord and received an assuring answer. Now he confidently awaits the fulfillment of the divine promise.

From NetBible Ps 3:5

  • When the psalmist received an assuring word from the Lord, he was able to sleep calmly – for he was confident of God’s continual protection. –> Because the Lord was protecting him, he awoke safely from his sleep.

From NetBible Ps 3:8

  • In this context God’s “blessing” includes deliverance/protection, vindication, and sustained life (see Pss 21:3, 6; 24:5).

Word Study

From NetBible Prov 12:25

  • Anxiety[01674] = worry, fear, heaviness, sorrow

    *The word “anxiety” (דְּאָגָה, dÿagah) combines anxiety and fear – anxious fear (e.g., Jer 49:23; Ezek 4:16); and for the verb (e.g., Ps 38:18; Jer 17:8).

    *Anxiety weighs heavily on the heart, causing depression. The spirit is brought low.

  • encouraging[02896] = good, gracious

    * Heb “good.” The Hebrew word “good” (טוֹב, tov) refers to what is beneficial for life, promotes life, creates life or protects life. The “good word” here would include encouragement, kindness, and insight – the person needs to regain the proper perspective on life and renew his confidence.

  • brings joy[08055] = makes glad/ merry, causes rejoicing

    *Heb “makes it [= his heart] glad.” The similarly sounding terms יַשְׁחֶנָּה (yashkhennah, “weighs it down”) and יְשַׂמְּחֶנָּה (yÿsammÿkhennah, “makes it glad”) create a wordplay (paronomasia) that dramatically emphasizes the polar opposite emotional states: depression versus joy.

From NetBible Ps 107:20

  • assuring word[01697] = speech, saying, utterance

    *Heb “he sent his word.” This probably refers to an oracle of assurance which announced his intention to intervene (see L. C. Allen, Psalms 101-150 [WBC], 59)

  • healed[07495] = to mend (by stitching), to cure, repair, make whole
  • rescued[04422] = delivered, saved, preserved

    *Heb “he rescued from their traps.” The Hebrew word שְׁחִית (shekhit, “trap”) occurs only here and in Lam 4:20, where it refers to a trap or pit in which one is captured. Because of the rarity of the term and the absence of an object with the verb “rescued,” some prefer to emend the text of Ps 107:20, reading מִשַׁחַת חַיָּתָם (mishakhat khayyatam, “[he rescued] their lives from the pit”). Note also NIV “from the grave,” which interprets the “pit” as Sheol or the grave.

From NetBible Ps 119:50

Psalm 119:49-50 AMP … Remember [fervently] the word and promise to Your servant, in which You have caused me to hope. This is my comfort and consolation in my affliction: that Your word has revived me and given me life. 

  • affliction[06040] = suffering, pain, sorrow, trouble

affliction[06040] = suffering, pain, sorrow, trouble
revived[02421] gives life, quickened, restored, refreshed

  • from sickness, discouragement, faintness, death

His word
……quickened
……revives
……refreshes
……restores
……brings hope
……brings life

Psalm 84:11-12 AMP … For the Lord God is a Sun and Shield; the Lord bestows [present] grace and favor and [future] glory (honor, splendor, and heavenly bliss)! No good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly. O Lord of hosts, blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) is the man who trusts in You [leaning and believing on You, committing all and confidently looking to You, and that without fear or misgiving]!

Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need. -Heb 4:16

Those who know His grace WILL glory again!

Two golden links of one celestial chain:
Who owneth grace shall surely glory gain. -Spurgeon
