    15 He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him.


Honey from the Rock

November 20, 2012

Psalm 119:103How sweet are Your words to my taste, Sweeter than honey to my mouth!

Proverbs 16:24Pleasant words are a like honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.

Rock Eternal standing firm
Enduring the winds of time
Strong tower, shelter above all others
Sweet refuge, Rock that is higher than I. -Ps 61:1-4

Lord hear my cry
Under the shadow of Your wings let me trust and abide
Keep me as the apple of Your eye
Nourished with honey from the Rock, satisfied -Ps 17:8;Deut 32:10-13;Ps 91:1-4
Sweet golden oil flowing from the flinty crag
Pure, rich, fresh, the perfect food
The Living Word.

Rock Eternal standing firm
Enduring the winds of time
Honey – golden, sweet, pure
Flowing from the Rock
Perfect food for my soul
A Healing balm to make me whole
Taste and SEE! -Ps 19:8-11, 34:8


Sweeter than Honey

September 16, 2012

Psalm 19:8-10 AMP … The precepts of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the Lord is pure and bright, enlightening the eyes. The [reverent] fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever; the ordinances of the Lord are true and righteous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold, even than much fine gold; they are sweeter also than honey and drippings from the honeycomb.

Proverbs 16:24Pleasant-Kind-Gracious words are like a honeycomb, Sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.

From NetBible Prov 16:24

*The metaphor of honey or the honeycomb is used elsewhere in scripture, notably Ps 19:10 [11]. Honey was used in Israel as a symbol of the delightful and healthy products of the land – “a land flowing with milk and honey” (Deut 6:3).

* Two predicates are added to qualify the metaphor: The pleasant words are “sweet” and “healing.” “Soul” includes in it the appetites, physical and spiritual; and so sweet to the “soul” would summarize all the ways pleasant words give pleasure. “Bones” is a metonymy of subject, the boney framework representing the whole person, body and soul. Pleasant words, like honey, will enliven and encourage the whole person. One might recall, in line with the imagery here, how Jonathan’s eyes brightened when he ate from the honeycomb (1 Sam 14:27).

Seek Jesus Christ as if looking for hidden treasure.

His words are sweeter than honey; More desired than much fine gold. -Col2:2-3; Ps19:10,119:103,119:72,119:127

They are sweet to the soul bringing joy to the heart, light to the eyes and healing to the bones.

If you have any word of exhortation or consolation or encouragement for the people, say it! -ACTS 13:15 AMP

Samson’s Riddle

January 16, 2012

Judges 14:14So he[Samson] said to them:

“Out of the eater came something to eat,
And out of the strong came something sweet.”
Now for three days they could not explain the riddle.

The answer:

Judges 14:8 … When he returned later to take her, he turned aside to look at the carcass of the lion; and behold, a swarm of bees and honey were in the body of the lion.

Judges 14:17-18Now she had wept on him the seven days while their feast lasted. And it happened on the seventh day that he told her, because she pressed him so much. Then she explained the riddle to the sons of her people. 18 So the men of the city said to him on the seventh day before the sun went down:

“What is sweeter than honey? And what is stronger than a lion?”

And he said to them:

“If you had not plowed with my heifer, you would not have solved my riddle!”

—>A honeycomb in the body of a dead lion.

The Lion of the tribe of Judah has triumphed!
Tho He was slain as a Lamb
He lives!
He speaks.
His words sweeter than honey!

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

Revelation 5:1-6 … And I saw in the right hand of Him who sat on the throne a scroll written inside and on the back, sealed with seven seals. 2 Then I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, “Who is worthy to open the scroll and to loose its seals?” 3 And no one in heaven or on the earth or under the earth was able to open the scroll, or to look at it.
4 So I wept much, because no one was found worthy to open and read the scroll, or to look at it. 5 But one of the elders said to me, “Do not weep. Behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has prevailed to open the scroll and to loose its seven seals.” 

6 And I looked, and behold, in the midst of the throne and of the four living creatures, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as though it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent out into all the earth.
