  28. 1Corinthians 13:1-7 AMP … If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love [for others growing out of God’s love for me], then I have become only a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal [just an annoying distraction]. 2 And if I have the gift of prophecy [and speak a new message from God to the people], and understand all mysteries, and [possess] all knowledge; and if I have all [sufficient] faith so that I can remove mountains, but do not have love [reaching out to others], I am nothing. 3 If I give all my possessions to feed the poor, and if I surrender my body to be burned, but do not have love, it does me no good at all. 4 Love endures with patience and serenity, love is kind and thoughtful, and is not jealous or envious; love does not brag and is not proud or arrogant. 5 It is not rude; it is not self-seeking, it is not provoked [nor overly sensitive and easily angered]; it does not take into account a wrong endured. 6 It does not rejoice at injustice, but rejoices with the truth [when right and truth prevail]. 7 Love bears all things [regardless of what comes], believes all things [looking for the best in each one], hopes all things [remaining steadfast during difficult times], endures all things [without weakening].

  29. 1Corinthians 13:8-13 AMP … Love never fails [it never fades nor ends]. But as for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for the gift of special knowledge, it will pass away. 9 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part [for our knowledge is fragmentary and incomplete]. 10 But when that which is complete and perfect comes, that which is incomplete and partial will pass away. 11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child; when I became a man, I did away with childish things. 12 For now [in this time of imperfection] we see in a mirror dimly [a blurred reflection, a riddle, an enigma], but then [when the time of perfection comes we will see reality] face to face. Now I know in part [just in fragments], but then I will know fully, just as I have been fully known [by God]. 13 And now there remain: faith [abiding trust in God and His promises], hope [confident expectation of eternal salvation], love [unselfish love for others growing out of God’s love for me], these three [the choicest graces]; but the greatest of these is love.

The Lord is Nigh

April 20, 2013

Psalm 34:17-18The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears them; He delivers them from all their troubles. The Lord is near the brokenhearted; He delivers those who are discouraged.

The Lord is nigh
He hears and answers the righteous cry.

Prepare your heart
Call on Him in sincerity and truth
Expect an answer.

Be quieted and renewed in His unfailing love
He is faithful to deliver and mighty to save!

{From the word study below} The word Hosanna points to this verse:

Psalm 32:7 NASB … You are my hiding place; You preserve me from trouble; You surround me with songs of deliverance. Selah.

Psalm 32:7 MSG … GOD’s my island hideaway, keeps danger far from the shore, throws garlands of hosannas around my neck.

The Lord is near
Don’t shed a tear
He is your hiding place
He is faithful to deliver and mighty to save!

Rejoice greatly O daughter of Zion! -Zec 9:9

Lift up your heads, O you gates! And be lifted up, you everlasting doors! And the King of glory shall come in. -Ps24:7

Sing hosanna in the highest to the King!
The King of glory He comes!

From NetBible Ps 34:17

  • delivers[05337] = to snatch away, to be plucked out, rescue, save

From NetBible Ps 34:18

  • nigh[07138] = near(in place, kindred or
    time), approachable, allied, at hand
  • delivers[03467] = to save, to be liberated, to give victory to
    *from a primitive root, Greek [5614] = hosanna

From NetBible Jn 12:13

  • hosanna[5614] =
    From [03467] = to be liberated, saved, delivered, victorious
    and [04994] = we pray now please
  • The expression ῾Ωσαννά (Jwsanna, literally in Hebrew, “O Lord, save”) in the quotation from Ps 118:25-26 was probably by this time a familiar liturgical expression of praise, on the order of “Hail to the king,” although both the underlying Aramaic and Hebrew expressions meant “O Lord, save us.” As in Mark 11:9 the introductory ὡσαννά is followed by the words of Ps 118:25, εὐλογημένος ὁ ἐρχόμενος ἐν ὀνόματι κυρίου (euloghmeno” Jo ercomeno” en onomati kuriou), although in the Fourth Gospel the author adds for good measure καὶ ὁ βασιλεὺς τοῦ ᾿Ισραήλ (kai Jo basileu” tou Israhl). In words familiar to every Jew, the author is indicating that at this point every messianic expectation is now at the point of realization. It is clear from the words of the psalm shouted by the crowd that Jesus is being proclaimed as messianic king. See E. Lohse, TDNT9:682-84.* Hosannais an Aramaic expression that literally means, “help, I pray,” or “save, I pray.” By Jesus’ time it had become a strictly liturgical formula of praise, however, and was used as an exclamation of praise to God.* A quotation from Ps 118:25-26.

  • Psalm 145:18 AMP … The Lord is near to all who call upon Him, to all who call upon Him sincerely and in truth.

    time), approachable, allied, at hand
  • sincerity and truth[0571] = firmness, faithfulness, sureness, reliability, honesty

  • salvation[03467] = to save, to be liberated, to give victory to

  • The NT understands this verse to be a prophecy of the triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday, and properly so (cf. Matt 21:5;John 12:15), but reference to the universal rule of the king in v. 10reveals that this is a “split prophecy,” that is, it has a two-stage fulfillment. Verse 9 was fulfilled in Jesus’ earthly ministry but v. 10awaits a millennial consummation (cf. Rev 19:11-16).
  • v10 … I will cut off the chariot from Ephraim And the horse from Jerusalem; And the bow of war will be cut off. And He will speak peace to the nations; And His dominion will be from sea to sea, And from the River to the ends of the earth.

The Joy of the Lord

April 6, 2011

Galatians 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, … How does the fruit of the Spirit – joy, manifest?

From Netbible Gal 5:22 joy[5479] means to rejoice exceedingly, to take great, exceeding, full delight in

Look how the Lord himself expresses joy. Zephaniah 3:17 The LORD your God is with you{in your midst}, He is mighty{a victorious warrior} to save; He will exult[07797] over you with great joy[08057], He will quiet you{renew you} with His love, He will rejoice[01523] over you with singing[07440].

The Lord shows His joy here by taking great pleasure in and celebrating with singing, shouts of joy AND whirling, spinning around. Psalm 16:11  You will show me the path of life; In Your presence[06440] is fullness[07648] of joy[08057]; At Your right hand are pleasures[05273] forevermore.

And when she saw King David leaping [06339] and dancing [03769] before [06440] the LORD, she despised him in her heart.

A Mighty Roar

August 25, 2010

Daniel 6:27 He rescues and He saves; He performs signs and wonders in the heavens and on the earth. He has rescued Daniel from the power of the lions.

I was feeling a little like I was in the lion’s den,
surrounded by hungry roaring lions that seemed ready to devour and swallow me up. -Jere 51:38

The Lord encouraged me with this thought –
No matter how big those hungry lions seem or how loud they roar –
He the LORD, the Lion of Judah is bigger!
He has triumphed!

Take heart, be of good courage -Ps 27:13-14
Trust in the LORD your God
Be drawn under His wing
Trust Him to quiet, renew and refresh your soul
In the midst of the lions den
He is mighty to save
His roar is bigger!

“Hallelujah! For our Lord God Almighty reigns.” -Rev 19:6
The Lion of Judah in victory reigns! -Rev 5:5

Zephaniah 3:17 The LORD your God is with you{in your midst}, He is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, He will quiet{renew, refresh, bring into rest) you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing.

Psalm 57:1-5, 7 Be merciful to me, O God, be merciful to me!
For my soul trusts in You;
And in the shadow of Your wings I will make my refuge,
Until these calamities have passed by.
I will cry out to God Most High,
To God who performs all things for me.
He shall send from heaven and save me;
He reproaches the one who would swallow me up. Selah
God shall send forth His mercy and His truth.
My soul is among lions;
I lie among the sons of men
Who are set on fire,
Whose teeth are spears and arrows,
And their tongue a sharp sword.
Be exalted, O God, above the heavens;
Let Your glory be above all{over} the earth.

 

My heart is steadfast, O God, my heart is steadfast;
I will sing, yes, I will sing praises!

A Mighty Thunderous Roar {Article}

From Article:
Joel 3:16
The LORD will roar from Zion and thunder from Jerusalem; the earth and the sky will tremble. But the LORD will be a refuge for his people, a stronghold for the people of Israel.

1 Samuel 2:10
Those who contend with the LORD will be shattered; against them He will thunder in the heavens, the LORD will judge the ends of the earth; and He will give strength to His king, and will exalt the horn of His anointed.

All will tremble at the roar of the Lion of Judah (Amos 3:8). To those who contend with the Lord, His roar will show His wrath (Prov 19:12, 20:2). They will tremble in terror. But to those who belong to the Lord it will be protection. They will tremble in awe and respect gathered like protected children around Him.

The sound of waterfalls. –Ps 42:7

Be lifted up, you ancient doors –Ps 24:7
