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

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].

Compromise or Stand Firm?

September 11, 2013

Is the word of God being compromised for the sake of unity? Or some other noble ideal? Is the ‘whole’ tolerating the compromise of  ’some’ to preserve ‘peace’?

Compromise or Stand Firm?

From Rev Heather Butler
Ever wondered about the word compromise, I have this week, wondering what it really means when we say that if we cant come into agreement then we compromise, all sounds rather amicable and sensible, but, wait a minate, lets look at that word again.

If something has been compromised it means infiltrated by another party you get the picture. So lets split the word up, there are three parts to it, co which equals more than one person, the m in the middle which we will call me and promise. So now there are two people with one promise that has to be watered down and broken, because one wants to honour it and the other wants to change it, so now the promise is compromised.

See how easily the enemy can creep in, its subtle isnt it, we take the word of God just as satan did in the garden, he speaks and says to Eve “did God really say that” giving her the excuse that she wanted to continue in her quest to bite the fruit, the rest is history. That sneaky snake is still at it today, enabling the church to compromise the word of God to fit in with their thoughts rather than what God really thinks.

Its worth being reminded that no matter who we are, the word says what it says, that God is the same yesterday today and forever, he changeth not, like Eve we are offered a compromise. Serious stuff and food for thought. Night God bless everyone.

Proverbs 25:26 AMP … Like a muddied fountain and a polluted spring is a righteous man who yields, falls down, and compromises his integrity before the wicked.

From NetBible Pr 25:26

  • “to stamp; to tread; to foul by treading [or, by stamping].” BDB 952 s.v. defines it here as a “fountain befouled.” The picture is one of a spring of water where men and beasts gather and muddy it by their trampling in and out of it.
  • “to give way; to move.” This probably refers to the integrity of the righteous being lost – comparing it to moving [off course]. T. T. Perowne writes, “To see a righteous man moved from his steadfastness through fear or favour in the presence of the wicked is as disheartening as to find the stream turbid and defiled at which you were longing to quench your thirst” (Proverbs, 161). But the line may refer to the loss of social standing and position by the righteous due to the plots of the wicked – just as someone muddied the water, someone made the righteous slip from his place.

2 Timothy 4:2-4 NASB … Preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort, with great patience and instruction. 3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires, 4 and will turn away their ears from the truth and will turn aside to myths.

John 14:23 … Jesus answered, If a person [really] loves Me, he will keep My word [obey My teaching]; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home (abode, special dwelling place) with him.

From NetBible Jn 14:23

  • keep[5083] = to attend to carefully, take care of, guard

Stand Firm!

Isaiah 7:9 NIV … If you do not stand firm in your faith, you will not stand at all.

From NetBible Is 7:9

  • MSG … If you don’t take your stand in faith, you won’t have a leg to stand on.
  • the Lord here addresses the entire Davidic family and court. (Verse 4 was addressed to the king.) There is a wordplay in the Hebrew text, designed to draw attention to the alternatives set before the king (cf.1:20). “Believe” (תַאֳמִינוּ, ta’aminu) is a Hiphil form of the verbאָמָן (’aman); “endure” (תֵאָמֵנוּ, te’amenu) is a Niphal form of this same verb.

There are only 2 choices:
Stand firm in your faith and endure

Be careful, keep calm, don’t be afraid or intimidated -Is7:4
Be willing and obedient
Listen to, keep/guard My words -Is1:19;Jn14:23,21

Or
Don’t stand(compromise) and fall

Rebel and be devoured by the sword
From NetBible Is1:19-20

  • The wordplay in the Hebrew draws attention to the options. The people can obey, in which case they will “eat” v. 19 (תֹּאכֵלוּ [to’khelu], Qal active participle of אָכַל) God’s blessing, or they can disobey, in which case they will be devoured (Heb “eaten,” תְּאֻכְּלוּ, [tÿ’ukkÿlu], Qal passive/Pual of אָכַל) by God’s judgment.

Revelation 2:12-17 …     Then to the angel (messenger) of the assembly (church) in *Pergamum write: These are the words of Him Who has and wields the sharp two-edged sword:

13 I know where you live–a place where Satan sits enthroned. [Yet] you are clinging to and holding fast My name, and you did not deny My faith, even in the days of Antipas, My witness, My faithful one, who was killed (martyred) in your midst–where Satan dwells. 14 Nevertheless, I have a few things against you: you have some people there who are clinging to the teaching of Balaam, who taught Balak to set a trap and a stumbling block before the sons of Israel, [to entice them] to eat food that had been sacrificed to idols and to practice lewdness [giving themselves up to sexual vice]. 15 You also have some who in a similar way are clinging to the teaching of the Nicolaitans [those corrupters of the people] which thing I hate. 16 Repent [then]! Or else I will come to you quickly and fight against them with the sword of My mouth.

17 He who is able to hear, let him listen to and heed what the Spirit says to the assemblies (churches). To him who overcomes (conquers), I will give to eat of the manna that is hidden, and I will give him a white stone with a new name engraved on the stone, which no one knows or understands except he who receives it.

From NetBible Rev2:12

  • Pergamos[4010] = “height or elevation”
    *from purgos[4444] = watch or high tower
    … and gamos[1062] = marriaae wedding
    —> Pergamum = married to the high tower
For the sake of unity the whole tolerate some and compromise the Word. Perhaps the high tower is unity – unity without truth is an idol and myth!
Stand firm!

It’s better to stand alone with the truth, than to be united in error with the multitude!
