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

Not by might nor by power, but by His Spirit –

Honey from the Rock

August 28, 2009

1 Peter 2:9
But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people (a people belonging to God), that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; 

Jeremiah 15:16 NET
As your words came to me I drank them in, and they filled my heart with joy and happiness because I belong to you.

From the NetBible Jere 15:16

*The prophet accepted them {drank them in}, assimilated them, and made them such a part of himself that he spoke with complete assurance what he knew were God’s words.

This is what we as the Lord’s chosen people —
must continue to do!

As His words come, drink them in
He sends forth His word …
He causes His wind to blow –Ps 147:18

He breathes out His breath
The breath of life — the living waters flow!

Breathe in His life, drink in His word
Come into His marvelous light

How sweet are Your words to my taste! Yes, sweeter than honey to my mouth! –Ps 119:103

Pure, rich, fresh, the perfect food, the living word
Sweet golden oil flowing from the flinty crag
Rock Eternal standing firm enduring the winds of time –1 Pe 1:22-25
Honey from the Rock –Deut 32:10-13
Taste and SEE –1 Sam 14:29
Taste and believe, it is done –Jn 4:50,53
Taste and boldly speak proclaiming His praise
For I AM watching over My word to perform it –Jere 1:12
The living, unfailing word of the LORD forever stands! 

1 Samuel 14:27-29
But Jonathan had not heard when his father put the people under oath; therefore, he put out the end of the staff that was in his hand and dipped it in the honeycomb, and put his hand to his mouth, and his eyes brightened. Then one of the people said, “Your father strictly put the people under oath, saying, ‘Cursed be the man who eats food today.'” And the people were weary. Then Jonathan said, “My father has troubled the land. See now, how my eyes have brightened because I tasted a little of this honey”.

Deuteronomy 32:10-13
In a desert land he found him, in a barren and howling waste.
He shielded him and cared for him; he guarded him as the apple of his eye,
Like an eagle that stirs up its nest and hovers over its young,
that spreads its wings to catch them and carries them on its pinions.
The LORD alone led him; no foreign god was with him.
He made him ride on the heights of the land and fed him with the fruit of the fields.
He nourished him with honey from the rock, and with oil from the flinty crag …

Ezekiel 3:10-11
And he said to me, “Son of man, listen carefully and take to heart all the words I speak to you. Go now to your countrymen in exile and speak to them. Say to them, ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says,’ whether they listen or fail to listen.”

1 Peter 1:22-25
Now that you have purified yourselves by obeying the truth so that you have sincere love for your brothers, love one another deeply, from the heart. For you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living and enduring word of God. For,
“All men are like grass,
and all their glory is like the flowers of the field;
the grass withers and the flowers fall,
but the word of the Lord stands forever.

Honey – Taste & See
Honey & the Rod

My Hidden Polished Arrow

February 10, 2009
Isaiah 49:2   He made my mouth like a sharpened sword, in the shadow of His hand He hid me; He made me into a polished arrow and concealed me in His quiver. 
Isaiah 50:4   The Sovereign LORD has given me an instructed tongue, to know the word that sustains the weary. He wakens me morning by morning, wakens my ear to listen like one being taught.

Morning by morning breathe anew in Me
Wait on Me, the Sovereign LORD
Be still, hidden in the shadow of My hand
Yield to My refining process.

These (trials) have come so that your faith—of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire—may be proved genuine and may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed. –1 Pe 1:7

You are being made into My polished arrow
Concealed in My quiver until the appointed time of release
My word runs swiftly to its target when released –Ps 147:15
It will not return void.

My word that goes out from My mouth: It will not return to Me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it. –Isa 55:11

Wait on Me and My divine timing, beloved.

Let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.  –Ja 1:4

Stay hidden in My quiver until the appointed time of release
You are being made into My polished arrow
Stand straight and lift up your head
Your redemption draws nigh. –Lk 21:28

I the Lord will perfect that which concerns you
My mercy endures forever
I will not forsake the works of My hands! –Psa 138:8

I will not forget you! See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands. –Isa 49:15-16


Lamentations 3:25-26   The LORD is good to those whose hope{trust} is in Him, to the one who seeks Him; It is good that one should hope and wait quietly for the salvation{deliverance} of the LORD.

Job 23:11-12, 10   My feet have closely followed his steps;
I have kept to his way without turning aside.
I have not departed from the commands of his lips;
I have treasured the words of his mouth more than my daily bread.
He knows the way that I take; when he has tested me, I will come forth as gold.

Teach me, O LORD, to yield to Your ways and timing. As the battle heats up, help me to be still and remain hidden as I am polished. Help me to wait, O LORD, on Your perfect timing. May I be released as Your swift, sharp, accurate arrow, accomplishing that for which it was sent bringing all praise, honor and glory to our Lord Jesus Christ.

From NETBible —

QUIVER – kwiv’-er (ashpah, teli; pharetra (Sirach 26:12)): A case or sheath for carrying arrows, a part of the ordinary equipment of the warrior, both foot-soldier and charioteer (Job 39:23Isa 22:6), and also of the huntsman (Gen 27:3). Figuratively of a group in passages where children (Ps 127:5) or prophets of Yahweh (Isa 49:2) are spoken of as arrows. Arrows are called bene ‘ashpah, “sons of the quiver” (Lam 3:13). By identifying the arrows with the death they produce, the quiver is likened to an open grave (Jer 5:16).
