Psalm 119:89Forever, O LORD, your word stands firm(stands secure, is settled/fixed) in heaven.

Ephesians 6:10-13Finally, beloved, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13 For this reason, take up the full armor of God so that you may be able to stand your ground(stand firm) on the evil day, and having done everything, to stand.

YES!!-Thank U Lord-I will stand my ground where hope can be found=>U are my shield & I hope in Ur word! -Ps 119:114

Psalm 40:1-3, 11 I waited patiently for the LORD; And He inclined to me and heard my cry. 2 He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; He set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand. 3 He has put a new song in my mouth––Praise to our God; Many will see it and fear, And will trust in the LORD. ……. 11 Do not withhold Your tender mercies from me, O LORD; Let Your lovingkindness and Your truth continually preserve me.

Philippians 1:27-30Only conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ so that – whether I[Paul] come and see you or whether I remain absent – I should hear that you are standing firm in one spirit, with one mind, by contending side by side for the faith of the gospel, 28 without being frightened in any way by those who oppose you. This is a sign to them that they will be destroyed, but that you will be saved—and that by God. 29 For it has been granted to you not only to believe in Christ but also to suffer for Him, 30 since you are going through the same struggle(conflict) you saw I had, and now hear that I still have.

Acts 20:25-31Now I[Paul] know that none of you among whom I have gone about preaching the kingdom will ever see me again. 26 Therefore, I declare to you today that I am innocent of the blood of any of you. 27 For I have not hesitated to proclaim to you the whole will(counsel) of God. 28 Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers. Be shepherds of the church of God, which he bought with his own blood. 29 I know that after I leave, savage wolves will come in among you and will not spare the flock. 30 Even from your own number men will arise and distort the truth in order to draw away disciples after them. 31 So be on your guard! Remember that for three years I never stopped warning each of you night and day with tears.

From NetBible Genesis 22:14
And Abraham called the name of the place, The–LORD–Will–Provide; as it is said to this day, “In the Mount of The LORD it shall be provided{SEEN}.

  • The–LORD–Will–Provide[03070] = Jehovah-jireh = “Jehovah sees”
    *from [03068] and [07200]; Jehovah will see (to it) => the Lord sees and provides for the necessities of His servants
    * a symbolical name for Mount Moriah => Here Solomon’s temple was built, on the spot that had been the threshing-floor of Ornan the Jebusite (2 Sam. 24:24, 252 Chr. 3:1
    =>”Mount Moriah” of the Chronicles is identical with the “mountain” in “the land of Moriah” of Genesis, and that the spot on which Jehovah appeared to David, and on which the temple was built, was the very spot of the sacrifice of Isaac.
    => now covered by “Dome of the Rock”
  • provided[07200] = seen, looked at, perceived, have vision

Jehovah Jireh means …
The Lord will see to it

2 My help comes from the Lord, Who made heaven and earth.

Psalm 123:1-2 AMPC … Unto You do I lift up my eyes, O You Who are enthroned in heaven.

Deeply Rooted = Stand Firm

May 3, 2017

Colossians 2:6-7 NLT …And now, just as you accepted Christ Jesus as your Lord, you must continue to live in obedience to Him{walk in Him}. 7 Let your roots grow down into Him{be firmly rooted} and draw up nourishment from Him, so you will grow in faith, strong and vigorous in the truth you were taught. Let your lives overflow with thanksgiving for all He has done.

The wind may blow, but those deeply rooted in Christ STAND FIRM forever!

Proverbs 12:3 NLT … Wickedness never brings stability; only the godly have deep roots.

From NetBible Pro 12:3

  • * “a root of righteousness” = stresses the security of the righteous; they are firmly planted and cannot be uprooted – they have deep roots”. The righteous are often compared to a tree (Pro 11:30;Ps 1:3, 92:13)

Proverbs 10:25When the storm{whirlwind} has swept by, the wicked are gone{swept away}, but the righteous stand firm forever{has an everlasting foundation.}.

From NetBIble Pro 10:25

  • * “storm wind” – “whirlwind” is used in prophetic passages that describe swift judgment and destruction.
  • * stand firm = everlasting foundation => this metaphor stresses the eternal security that the righteous have – the wicked have no such security.

Stand on the Solid Rock

October 4, 2016

The Two Foundations
Matthew 7:24-27 NLT … “Anyone who listens to my teaching and follows it is wise, like a person who builds a house on solid rock. 25 Though the rain comes in torrents and the floodwaters rise and the winds beat against that house, it won’t collapse because it is built on bedrock. 26 But anyone who hears my teaching and doesn’t obey it is foolish, like a person who builds a house on sand. 27 When the rains and floods come and the winds beat against that house, it will collapse with a mighty crash.”

Only two places to stand
On the solid Rock of Christ –1Cor 10:4
Or on the sinking sand.

Discernment is knowing the difference between right and almost right=>Be careful where you plant your feet.

solidrock

Stand firm, stand sure
With your feet upon the solid Rock of Truth –Jn 14:6,17:17
Stand secure –
Ps 40:2
For the grass withers and flowers fade –Is 40:8
Sinking sand{refuge of lies & deception}
… Will be washed away
Is 28:15-17
But the word of God forever stands
Forever remains! –1Pe 1:24-25

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 …

To Whom Are You Listening?

February 9, 2016

2 Corinthians 11:3-4 NASB … But I am afraid that, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, your minds will be led astray from the simplicity and purity of devotion to Christ. 4 For if one comes and preaches another Jesus whom we have not preached, or you receive a different spirit which you have not received, or a different gospel which you have not accepted, you bear this beautifully.

It’s surprising and astonishing how quickly
Some turn and follow another Jesus, another spirit,
A different gospel – Gal 1:6
Who has bewitched you?
That you should not obey the truth?Gal 3:1

Who is troubling you? 
Distorting the gospel of Christ? –Gal 1:7
Who is being pleased here?
God or people?Gal 1:10
Although you began with the Spirit,
Are you now trying to finish by human effort? –Gal 3:3

You were running well
Who hindered you from following the truth?- 
Gal 5:7
A little leaven leavens the whole lump. –Gal 5:9

Stand firm in Christ, in His truth
Do not be ensalved by another spirit or gospel –
Gal 5:1
Rely on Christ alone –
Gal 1:11-12
Be led by the Holy Spirit and live –
Gal 5:22-26
Please Him alone. –
Col 1:10

Those who are troubling you will be dealt with
By the Lord Jesus Christ Himself! –
Gal 5:10

Colossians 1:9-10 AMPC … For this reason we also, from the day we heard of it, have not ceased to pray and make [special] request for you, [asking] that you may be filled with the full (deep and clear) knowledge of His will in all spiritual wisdom [in comprehensive insight into the ways and purposes of God] and in understanding and discernment of spiritual things—
10 That you may walk (live and conduct yourselves) in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to Him and desiring to please Him in all things, bearing fruit in every good work and steadily growing and increasing in and by the knowledge of God [with fuller, deeper, and clearer insight, acquaintance, and recognition].
