In the Cleft

January 15, 2011

Psalm 91:1-4 He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.” … Surely He will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the perilous pestilence. He will cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth will be your shield and buckler.

Hide me in the cleft
In the cleft of the Rock
In the secret place of the Most High
Help me to abide.

My hiding place
A shelter from the storm
In the shadow of His wings
My God, in Him I will trust!

Streams in the desert
Drink from the river of delight
The fountain of life
Sing for joy
In the shadow of His wings
An everlasting crown
Upheld
In the cleft of the Rock
The desert rose blooms
The dove sings.

-Ps 91:1-2; Isa 32:2; Ps 36:7-9; Ps 63:7-8; Isa 35:1,6,10; Song 2:14

… I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the desert. … I give waters in the wilderness and streams in the desert to give drink to My chosen people, the people I formed for myself that they may proclaim My praise. -Isa 43:19-21

The Sun of Vindication

January 8, 2011

For for you who fear My name, the Sun of Righteousness will rise with healing in its wings; and you will go forth and skip about like calves from the stall. -Mal 4:2

Moreover the light of the moon will be as the light of the sun, And the light of the sun will be sevenfold, As the light of seven days, In the day that the LORD binds up the bruise of His people And heals the stroke of their wound. -Isa 30:26

Who is this that grows{rises} like the dawn, As beautiful as the full moon{white one}, As pure as the sun, As awesome as an army with banners{stars in procession}? -Song 6:10

Who are these that fly along like clouds, Like doves to their nests? -Isa 60:8

The Sun of Vindication IS rising for His people

They are crowned with everlasting joy

Their faces radiant

The moon reflecting the sun

The splendor of the King

The bright Morning Star.

…………………Isa 35:10;Isa 60:5,19-21;Jere 31:12;Rev 2:16,26-28

Those who have insight will shine brightly like the brightness of the expanse of heaven, and those who lead the many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever. -Dan 12:3

Streams in the desert

The rose blooms.

From NetBible Mal 4:2

* Here the Hebrew word צְדָקָה (tsÿdaqah), usually translated “righteousness” (so KJV, NIV, NRSV, NLT; cf. NAB “justice”), has been rendered as “vindication” because it is the vindication of God’s people that is in view in the context.

* The expression the sun of vindication will rise is a metaphorical way of describing the day of the Lord as a time of restoration when God vindicates his people (see 2 Sam 23:4; Isa 30:26; 60:1, 3). Their vindication and restoration will be as obvious and undeniable as the bright light of the rising sun.
