Ps 118, 5 times the words are said.
His mercy endureth for ever.
5 times, one psalm, this is an uplifting psalm, a powerful word indeed, 2012 Beth tabernacle house, dwelling, hear our Christian homes - tabernacle same Hebrew word for all O.T. words considering Tabernacles, speaks volumes. Our house, our prayer Chamber is more than just where we live it is where our lord lives and dwells. The root word, to be clear or to shine is powerful. In any and all darkness and trouble we are covered in the holy tabernacle, and the shining presence of our lord, we are never in darkness, never. It may seem like it at time, but when so, let us say as the psalm says to ground our faith, His mercy endureth forever.
Jesus said I will never leave you or forsake you, he is in us, with us, over us and is our light and our covering of protection against all enemies foreign and domestic, and spiritual enemies in high places.
The light is always shinning even in dark cloudy times, at night, our lord never slumbers or sleeps, we are to have peaceful and sweet sleep, we are covered while we are in sleep, and this should promote peaceful, restful sleep with no fear, we may be asleep, something or someone may try and harm, invade, steal, our holy alarm system is the lords tabernacle, the lord our present, what an ever present lord we have amen.
Spurgen well said,
it abides: “the voice is” : it is joy in the protection and honor given by the Lord's right hand.
Protection, spiritual honor by the lords own right hand. The Christian home is the main message in this verse. The Christian home may be divided, you may live with an unbelieving spouse or family, Jesus said ‘I did not come to bring peace, but a sword’. House’s shall be divided, relationships we have may turn on us, Jesus foretold us this.
In 1 Cor CH 7 The golden Chapter on Marriage and female, male relations , Paul says, ‘if you are with one who does not believe, stay with them, as they may be won to Christ through you, later he says, but if that spouse does not want your Jesus or you , you are under no condemnation if you divorce and leave.
For God is a God of peace. It should not be a surprise to many when a spouse is not on the same page as you. I have encountered this personally, and have talked to other Christian couples who are divided over the issue of end time prophecy, the lords judgments, the economic collapse, many are married to head in sand Christians , and man this is a hard one. Your both saved, but you may have a prophetic insight, a divine knowing that the spouse wants nothing to do with, currently this is causing a lot of problems in a lot of Christian marriages, remnant ones in the know and Christians that love the lord, but do not believe anything is coming, what do you do?
Suffer, be scorned, laughed at, misunderstood, called crazy, and reproached, you simply take it, very soon you will vindicated to the glory of our lord, only after things happen will they think and say, truly a prophet has been among us, or truly this person was right and has heard from the lord. You will have to wait till it happens than get ready, your going through all this for a reason, you will be in the thick of end time ministry, no one will be laughing at you than.
Be prepared to stand strong, keep the peace, learn to keep many things in your own heart and pray for your spouse and family’s that are saved, but think your crazy. Bear the reproach of Jesus, your day is coming to be that Joseph. You are being prepared and being taught so listen to the Spirit and obey.
The Christian home where both are on the same page is a sweet thing and a rare thing indeed. If you have this, may the lord bless you.
The Christian home is one where we offer up the living sacrifice of prayer and praise daily, now, it should be most of what you do. Praise him, worship Him, worship the lord in the beauty of His holiness, he has your covered, He has your back.
Yes dear reader, His mercy endures forever.
