Staying Glued To The Lord So You Do Not Fall To Pieces

Staying Glued To The Lord

Psa 63:1 A Psalm of David, when he was in the wilderness of Judah. O God, thou art my God;
early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is;

Psa 63:2 To see thy power and thy glory, so as I have seen thee in the sanctuary.

Psa 63:3 Because thy lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise thee.

Psa 63:4 Thus will I bless thee while I live: I will lift up my hands in thy name.

Psa 63:5 My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness; and my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips:

Psa 63:6 When I remember thee upon my bed, and meditate on thee in the night watches.

Psa 63:7 Because thou hast been my help, therefore in the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice.

Psa 63:8 My soul followeth hard after thee: thy right hand upholdeth me.

Barnes:

Psalms 63:8

My soul followeth hard after thee - The word used here - דבק dâbaq - means properly to cleave to; to adhere; to be glued to; to stick fast. Then it means to attach oneself to anything; and then, to pursue or follow after. The idea here is that of adhering to, or cleaving to; and the meaning is, that the psalmist adhered firmly to God, as pieces of wood glued together adhere to each other; that he, as it were, stuck fast to him; that he would not leave him or be separated from him.

The language represents the feelings of true piety in adhering firmly and constantly to God, whatever there may be that tends to separate us from him. The adhesion of bodies by glue is a striking but not an adequate representation of the firmness with which the soul adheres to God. Portions of matter held together by glue may be separated; the soul of the true believer never can be separated from God.

Thy right hand upholdeth me - The right hand is that by which we accomplish anything; and, by constant use, is stronger than the left hand. Hence, the expression is equivalent to saying that God upheld him with all his strength. The meaning is, that God sustained him in life; defended him in danger; kept him from the power of his enemies.

THE GROWTH OF THE SOUL
"My soul followeth hard after Thee: Thy right hand upholdeth me."-- Psa_63:8.

THERE ARE three notes in this Psalm which betoken the stages of the soul's growth: "My soul thirsteth for Thee"; "my soul shall be satisfied"; "my soul followeth hard after Thee." We may be passing through a wilderness of spiritual drought, the dark night of the soul, the seasons of dryness and depression which are apt to befall. In some cases, as when Elijah asked to die, or when John sent his despairing question to Christ from his prison, it is the result of physical or mental overstrain. But at such times, let us never hesitate still to speak of God as "'my God." Nothing can sever you from His everlasting Love. You may not have the glad consciousness of it, but you must never surrender your belief in it. Go on blessing Him, as long as you live, and lift up your hands in prayer.
But we can never be satisfied with what we have attained. God is ever moving forward! Let us follow hard after Him.

PRAYER
Living or dying, Lord, I would be Thine. Draw me day by day nearer to Thyself, until I be wholly filled with Thy love, and fitted to behold Thee face to face. AMEN.

Hebrew Followeth Hard, Barnes I s correct and adds to the word, the word is;

H1692
דּבק
dâbaq
daw-bak'
A primitive root; properly to impinge, that is, cling or adhere; figuratively to catch by pursuit: - abide, fast, cleave (fast together), follow close (hard, after), be joined (together), keep (fast), overtake, pursue hard, stick, take.

I repeat a portion of what Albert Barnes said;

cleave to; to adhere; to be glued to; to stick fast. Then it means to attach oneself to anything; and then, to pursue or follow after. The idea here is that of adhering to, or cleaving to; and the meaning is, that the psalmist adhered firmly to God, as pieces of wood glued together adhere to each other; that he, as it were, stuck fast to him; that he would not leave him or be separated from him.

That says it all, in the sleepless nights, in storms of life, no matter what I chose, do you, to follow hard after the lord, to be so glued to him, nothing can break the bond, as we read in Romans 8

Rom 8:37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.

Rom 8:38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,

Rom 8:39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Nothing, and I mean nothing can separate the remnant ones from the love of our lord, this is worth gluing yourself to, it is what keeps our Spirit life in one piece and not shattered by what we go through, we give it all to our lord in prayer, in faith, we leave it there, and we rejoice and praise in expectation , hope, faith and trust, I chose this route, do you.

Think on this

The Stone Of Help


1Sa 7:12 Then Samuel took a stone, and set it between Mizpeh and Shen, and called the name of it Ebenezer, saying, Hitherto hath the LORD helped us.

1Sa 7:13 So the Philistines were subdued, and they came no more into the coast of Israel: and the hand of the LORD was against the Philistines all the days of Samuel.

In Hebrew, the name the prophet gave to the stone was called Ebenezer, it means, stone of help.

In the N.T. that stone is the Rock, Jesus Christ. When Jesus called Peter the stone-Rock, it was not Petra large stone rock, but Petro's little pebble, Catholics have always had this wrong as Peter was not the rock, or the first Pope. His confession of Christ is what Jesus was saying concerning peter, the context with the Greek would read, " Peter upon your confession of me as Messiah I will build my church, not on a man, but a confession of the true rock of help. The rock we are to build our house on, and if we do, the rains, floods, storms will come, but that house will not be moved that is built upon Jesus the rock, Jesus is now our rock of Hope.

In Jesus name we have authority over evil spirits. Everything that can be shaken is being shaken, but the ones on this grand rock of help will not be shaken.

Now, Jesus is that rock, our lord is our help when we are helpless, when the enemy is to strong for us, He is our rock of offense, our fortress and high tower. The rock , the stone of help. Many times we are in the battle of a life time, a situation a problem, attacks, they are to great for us, in comes our lord Jesus and takes over. We are not left to row the boat in the storm all the way to the other side, there are times when the lord says, " OK my disciple has learned he can not do it on his own, he is overwhelmed, so now I can come in and calm the waters".

It is that way for all of us in our Christian walk, we have a rock of help, a rock of hope, a powerful, majestic, all knowing Jehovah God that comes in and sets up a standard against the flood of evil we are overcome by. Once we learn, I mean really learn, we have no part in our deliverance, victory, holy living, aside from obedience and co-operation with the spirits help, only than will we be ready for the masters use. Only than and not before.

It is humorous how in the Charles dickens book, " A Christmas carol-scrooge was called Ebenezer Scrooge, so in many minds the very name in modern thought reflects a bad image. Could this be a trick? No, but it can take away from what the name means, and it is not Scrooge, our lord is anything but a scrooge, he is our all in all. He is our rock of help.

The Holy Spirit is called our helper, comforter, teacher. The Holy Spirits power is a true help. The Greek word for help in this verse is, one that draws near, close as in a friendship. That is how close the Holy Spirit is to us, and in us. Something so amazing the O.T. saints could only dream of it.

We are blessed in high heavenly places because of our stone-Rock of help. We can call this help any time, just pray. The line is never busy, your never told , could you please hold, the master is busy. It may feel like this is delays to answers, or when the silence is long, but know every prayer is heard, and action of some sort has been taken.

This grand help, we could not live the Christian life without it, the stone of help in this text was named thus, because of a great deliverance, so in context we talking about deliverance. This word, this one word has been pressing on my thoughts all week, deliverance. So many people need it, drugs are an epidemic, sin, witch craft in the name of religion, apostasy, sin beyond that of Sodom. Truth is what holds it all together, the truth is faith, faith is our shield, our must have, it is the thing that pleases our lord. IT is a time to get a hold of this concept of the stone-Rock of help, the helper, the holy Spirit and know, walk, think in holy faith, all is under control, the lord knows, sees, and will help.

Faith has been my personal word of study for over three months now, man it is a hard word, and a hard lesson when you live as I do, as my family does, always on the razors edge, and always looking to the lord daily , for daily needs, manna faith, it has become the one thing the lord is teaching me daily about.

Wilkerson’s classic sermon, the crime of unbelief, I have never forgot it, It is a crime, of sorts, the lord knows when we have a faith back out, because we are human, but I, you, can not camp out there to long, or we will lose all Joy, expectancy and that is what the enemy wants. Faith is what helps us to trust and believe in what the lord said will be and it is a matter of time. The faith issue, and not hyper faith, solid, sound doctrine faith is all over the bible, it is one facet of the gospel diamond, and currently for me, it is the facet the lord is teaching me more on every single day.

This faith journey, it stretches our faith muscles to the point of a broken anguish, in the end it becomes fruit and saints of the lord it is blooming time, faith is a must in these dark days and the days ahead. We must all settle in our hearts we will hope against hope, believe in the unseen, and not look at the seen all the time, it is a God-Sized thing, a learning process, and a much needed one to learn, NOW!.

We can gain great hope in knowing we have help, we are not on our own, even if alone, we are never left to our own means, our steps are ordered by the lord, many times we have no idea where these steps are taking us, but we can be sure the lord is ordering them, ordaining them, opening doors, closing doors, going before us, even when we are a sleep, our rock of help is never a sleep.
It amazes me, even when we are snoring away, if you snore, LOL. That our lord is at work, he slumbers not, sleeps not and is ALWAYS at work on behalf of his true people. Find your quiet place, enter into His gates with praise, even if you feel the gates are prison bars of your own making by unbelief, because our deliverance is on the way.

The Coming Divine Move Of The Lord-And A Prophecy This Day August 29, 2013


Num 33:2 And Moses wrote their goings out according to their journeys by the commandment of the LORD: and these are their journeys according to their goings out.

Num 33:3 And they departed from Rameses in the first month, on the fifteenth day of the first month; on the morrow after the passover the children of Israel went out with an high hand in the sight of all the Egyptians.

Num 33:4 For the Egyptians buried all their firstborn, which the LORD had smitten among them: upon their gods also the LORD executed judgments.

Many are in a place today, fear, bindage, oppresson, trials, troubles, sickness, vexed by the sin in the nation, and world. Sick of the drum beats of war. This is all one day going to end. The final end will be at the second coming of Christ, but, there are such deliverences along the way, while we on earth, and this is what I want to bring today.

Gill says;

Numbers 33:3
And they departed from Rameses,.... A city in Egypt, where the children of Israel, a little before their departure, seem to have been gathered together in a body, in order to march out all together, as they did. This place the Targum of Jonathan calls Pelusium. Dr. Shaw (a) thinks it might be Cairo, from whence they set forward; see Exo_12:37 and it was

in the first month; in the month Nisan, as the same Targum, or Abib, which was appointed the first month on this account, and answers to part of our March and April:

on the fifteenth of the first month, on the morrow after the passover; that was kept on the fourteenth, when the Lord passed over the houses of the Israelites, and slew all the firstborn in Egypt, which made way for their departure the next morning; the Egyptians being urgent upon them to be gone:

the children of Israel went out with an high hand in the sight of all the Egyptians; openly and publicly, with great courage and boldness, without any fear of their enemies; who seeing them march out, had no power to stop them, or to move their lips at them, nay, were willing to be rid of them; see Exo_11:7.

Exo 11:7 But against any of the children of Israel shall not a dog move his tongue, against man or beast: that ye may know how that the LORD doth put a difference between the Egyptians and Israel.

Exo 11:8 And all these thy servants shall come down unto me, and bow down themselves unto me, saying, Get thee out, and all the people that follow thee: and after that I will go out. And he went out from Pharaoh in a great anger.

We see in all this , there is soon to be shown the great difference between true Believers, false ones, and non-believers. The lord is already seeing who will be on his side in the Judgments. He is preparing a last day Holy Remnant bride. This I have talked of, Wilkerson spoke of, wrote on, there will be a remnant. This holy remnant at present is going through the battle of their life. You have counted the cost, your paying the price and you are in boot camp. Boot camp for what?Training, for whats coming, just around the bend, we are that late in the game now.

Spiritual reinforcements are coming, the lord will vindicate his people, protect, guide, provide, and men will see it and know it. Natural men and Demons alike. I love 11:7, not even a dog would move its tongue against the holy end time remnant world wide.

Understand, I feel I have the spirit of the lord, That that day of great deliverance is right upon his holy ones. It is so close you can feel it, see it, taste it. Just as you can see, feel, taste, the judgments coming and the big Fall of the West. The world is getting darker everyday. I want to comfort the lords true people, If you are a true saint of the lord this ones for you.

You will soon be delivered, all the training, hell on earth, is about to take a sudden change, the lords wrath is not upon you. You will be safe, yes many will die, but I want to talk about the ones left behind, the ones that will be alive in the coming final days of America.

Comfort ye my people, speak comfort to them, your redemption draws close, it is before the second coming, there will be a glorious deliverance, great power and miracles on this bride. Not even a Dog, will be able, allowed to bark at you, how can this be? I do not have the answer, all I know is this is from the throne, it is real, it is coming. September will be a month of Change, I have said this for months, now I know, the lord has spoken to me in the prayer closet, and he has said , over and over,

"do not fear, be bold, be strong, be not afraid of any sudden calamity, I am with my bride, I will not let them down, Fear Not! I will do a work in your day, if I were to tell you, you would not believe it, I am getting things in order, I have not left you, you may feel I have, but I have not, no matter what my bride feels, it is all about to change, everything will change in a moment, suddenly, the suddenlies of my power are soon to be known by the world, my bride will rise up and have a boldness, and trust in me as never before, they will see a thousand fall on the right and left, yet many of my people will be left standing, only looking upon it with amazement, many will see manna fall, water from a rock, nature used in supernatural ways to deliver, and with a high hand you will be lead out of the current state you are in and into a new place, a place you have never been, nor can conceive yet, but when it comes you will know, I the lord have spoken and I have my eyes on my true bride, rest, live every day in joy, and no longer fear, it is a day to rejoice, I am coming, yes I am coming in power and Glory, and when you see it you will know. I will not let you down, I will never leave you , nor forsake you, your deliverance is nigh at hand. Believe me, I tell you now, This will happen, suddenly, and you will see everything different, my word will come alive as never before, all the training has had its purpose and your day of graduation is right around the corner, so my remnant bride , hold on, be comforted, this is the word of the lord"

Understand reader, the lord is not speaking of any place, nation, or a world revival, this will be an exclusive thing for his true people that will not be under wrath, not perfect saints, those are now being sifted. The lord knows your heart, he knows those that are truly his, and those who are not. If this is you, receive this word, it is almost to unreal for me to believe, but the word Judgment is all I get, and this word, the spared remnant. I know this is of the lord. I know with my whole heart.

The ones who have laughed you to scorn will be speechless, the demons that have been allowed to afflict, has been the testing and boot camp of the Holy. The lord knows you, he knows your heart, you can pull the wool over mans eyes, but not the lords, so you know who you are, as our lord knows who you are, do you know who you are? It is still a short window of time to make the choice if you have not and escape the wrath of the lord and be a part of his true Holy, Humble, Remnant of true believers. Only you know, those that know, may this word speak truth and comfort to you.

Jer. Pt 7 Speaking Truth = The Lonely Road


Jer 15:17 I sat not in the assembly of the mockers, nor rejoiced; I sat alone because of thy hand: for thou hast filled me with indignation.

JFB:

Jeremiah 15:17

My “rejoicing” (Jer_15:16) was not that of the profane mockers (Psa_1:1; Psa_26:4, Psa_26:5) at feasts. So far from having fellowship with these, he was expelled from society, and made to sit “alone,” because of his faithful prophecies.

because of thy hand — that is, Thine inspiration (Isa_8:11; Eze_1:3; Eze_3:14).

filled me with indignation — So Jer_6:11, “full of the fury of the Lord”; so full was he of the subject (God’s “indignation” against the ungodly) with which God had inspired him, as not to be able to contain himself from expressing it. The same comparison by contrast between the effect of inspiration, and that of wine, both taking a man out of himself, occurs (Act_2:13, Act_2:15, Act_2:18).

Gill:

Jeremiah 15:17
I sat not in the assembly of the mockers, nor rejoiced,.... With them, the mockers; or, "those that make merry" (r); as the word is rendered in Jer_30:19, and so the Targum,

"those that sing;''

and dance and live jovially; with these the prophet did not associate himself; such levity being unsuitable to his character as a prophet, and to those grievous messages he was charged with; and though he had joy, it was of another kind; it was not carnal, but spiritual; not outward, but inward; and what arose from the word of the Lord, being found and eaten by him. Moreover, there were some things which he was obliged by his office to deliver, that were very distressing to him, and made him very melancholy; so that he shunned all company and diversion, which might have been lawfully enjoyed: for this is not to be understood of the assembly or council of the wicked governors of the nation, and much less of the refuse of the people, that mocked at the word of God, and scoffed at the prophets and people of God; but of Jeremiah's friends and acquaintance, that met and made merry together; with whom he could not join, because of the sorrowful case in which he was, on account of the people he was sent unto:

I sat alone, because of thine hand; not because he was obliged to it, being deserted by men, but of choice; he withdrew from company, kept himself retired at home in his own house, there meditating upon the word of God, and mourning over the case of his people; and this he did, because the afflicting hand of God was upon him, or because the hand and spirit of prophecy was upon him, and he was charged to denounce very grievous things against the people; and because the hand of divine power and authority was over him, to which he ought to be subject, and was ready to obey:

for thou hast filled me with indignation; either with the indignation of the people against him, because of his prophecies; or with indignation against them, because of their sins; or with denunciations of wrath he was to deliver to them; and so the Targum,

"for thou hast filled me with a prophecy of cursing.''

The call, the truth, obeying to speak the truth, counting the cost, it comes with a heavy burden, O' How I know. Jer. Could not even got to family gatherings, he simply could not do it. He sat alone. He walked alone, he carried this burden alone. He came to a place of hating to have to speak these words of harsh rebuke, all it gave him was trouble, persecution, scorned. When you decide to cross the line in the sand, and make your stand for Christ you will face the same thing.

The remnant bride is suffering, most know this, because they are, many are suffering lonesomeness, and feeling the despair of it. Many are laughed at, not listened to. Listen this chapter if you read it all, you will find Jer, was human, as we are all, he cursed the day he was born, he said God was a liar, many of us have had such words in prayer out of deep anguish, it is what we come to, but we do not stay there.

Jer 15:18 Why is my pain perpetual, and my wound incurable, which refuseth to be healed? wilt thou be altogether unto me as a liar, and as waters that fail?

The prophet hit the end of his rope, the lord did not come in grace, he said just the opposite a hard word.

Jer 15:19 Therefore thus saith the LORD, If thou return, then will I bring thee again, and thou shalt stand before me: and if thou take forth the precious from the vile, thou shalt be as my mouth: let them return unto thee; but return not thou unto them.

The lord said, If you return, from your pity party, and separate the holy from the profane, than you will be my mouth again, it took a decision, it was a strong rebuke. The lord said do not return to them, let them come to you, this is the case in my life, such persecution locally as the dooms day prophet, the lord said, go, get out of Zohar, leave, I will put you farther out in the wilderness to location 3, far away, and they will come to you, in time, you are no longer to go to them. This does not mean to stop street preaching, winning souls on the streets, just not in Yermo, these ones the lord said, you have spoken faithful all these years , so wait until somethings happen, than let them come to you. John the Baptist lived outside, camped out at the Jordan river, and the people came out to him. This is why I can go to no family gatherings, number one I am not wanted, number two, I just can not do small talk in these days, I can not do it, the fire of the word burns in my bones, I just can not lighten up, as I am told to, I speak to all I see, Judgment is coming, soon they will see this servant spoke the truth, but only after things happen, only then will they come.

The Church, I hope to reach mostly the little towns in the area, not just Yermo. At the yard sale, most came from Newberry springs, I met a few, that said they were looking for such a ministry, there are full gospel ones out there, not around here, if so I have never met them.

The lord in the next verse gave the prophet some solid words of encouragement to sustain him.

Jer 15:20 And I will make thee unto this people a fenced brasen wall: and they shall fight against thee, but they shall not prevail against thee: for I am with thee to save thee and to deliver thee, saith the LORD.

Jer 15:21 And I will deliver thee out of the hand of the wicked, and I will redeem thee out of the hand of the terrible.

What a promise for the ones who chose to sound the holy alarm, and will not faint, or stop, but declare the whole counsel of the lord, you will lose friends, family and you will sit alone, feel alone, it is all part of the way it is. Verse 20, I have read many times and have found great comfort in it esp. of late, I stand on it, believe it, quote it. It has sustained me. A true move and work of the lord, will have the ones who will come against it, but a true work of the lord, it may cost you, but no man will be able to stop it, no matter how hard they try, they will be fighting the lord himself, this is very dangerous to do. Touch not my anointed and do my prophets no harm. Those that do, one day will pay a great price. many that will soon lose all they have, will lose it, many others will repent and return to their first love. The reason for Judgment is to bring people back to their senses and understand all they held dear, once gone, means nothing. The lord judges for a reason, to see his people return, and return they will. I have seen the mission we are at, full of people, much going on, I have clearly seen this before we ever got the place given, and from day one when my feet hit the grounds I saw it, and it will be so, because the lord said it, and has shown it.

Ezek, was told, " I will make your forehead like flint, because I am sending you to a rebellious house, a rebellious people, we must go toe to toe, and not back down, but have a tender heart and not a heart of flint, but a forehead, not letting the rebellion and persecution get to us, we must have tough skin , but soft hearts. When we do at times say, " Lord enough, I can take no more, just take me, " Prophets and Kings have said this. the saying is true, " Heavy hangs the head that wares the crown" I speak of humble leadership, not a crowned person, that comes in glory and than we cast them at the lords feet.

So, we have learned a few things in this part.

1. The prophet could not play in any rain-deer games, he could not go to family gatherings, he sat alone.

2. He had had enough and cried out with a broken heart.

3. The lord gave him a strong truth and said IF you return, its up to you Prophet

4. He was promised even when he is fought against, resisted the lord would not allow him to be stopped, he would be protected and he would not go into captivity as the others,, he would have favor with his captors, earlier this was said in the chapter, read it.

So, it is a lonely road, I can testify, I have broken, but every time, the lord corrects me, teaches me, comforts me, and assures me, this is the lord speaking, and it will not fall to the ground. Be encouraged if you are such a one as we have just read, it is the way of the cross, it is painful, it is lonely, all will forsake you, If you choose to follow in the masters steps.

A Revelation Of The Saved Remnant During Judgment- Also A Confirmation From Wilkerson Today On This Post


Isa 28:5 When this time comes, the LORD All-Powerful will be a glorious crown for his people who survive.

This is yet another dual prophecy, we will first read what the scholars have to say.

Clarke;

Isaiah 28:5

In that day - Thus far the prophecy relates to the Israelites, and manifestly denounces their approaching destruction by Shalmaneser. Here it turns to the two tribes of Judah and Benjamin, the remnant of God’s people who were to continue a kingdom after the final captivity of the Israelites. It begins with a favorable prognostication of their affairs under Hezekiah; but soon changes to reproofs and threatenings for their intemperance, disobedience, and profaneness.

Jonathan’s Targum on this verse is worthy of notice: “In that time Messiah, the Lord of hosts משיחא דיי צבאות meshicha dayai tsebaoth, shall be a crown of joy and a diadem of praise to the residue of his people.” Kimchi says the rabbins in general are of this opinion.

Here then the rabbins, and their most celebrated Targum, give the incommunicable name, יהוה צבאות Yehovah tsebaoth, the Lord of hosts, to our ever blessed Redeemer, Jesus Christ.

Barnes:

Isaiah 28:5

In that day - This verse commences a new subject, and affirms that while the kingdom of Israel should be destroyed, the kingdom of Judah would be preserved, and restored (compare Isa. 7–9)

Be for a crown of glory - He shall reign there as its king, and he shall guard and defend the remnant of his people there. This reign of Yahweh shall be to them better than palaces, towers, walls, and fruitful fields, and shall be a more glorious ornament than the proud city of Samaria was to the kingdom of Israel.

And for a diadem of beauty - A beautiful garland. The phrase stands opposed to the wreath of flowers or the diadem which was represented Isa_28:1, Isa_28:3 as adorning the kingdom and capital of Israel. Yahweh and his government would be to them their chief glory and ornament.

Unto the residue of his people - To the kingdom of Judah, comprising the two tribes of Judah and Benjamin. This doubtless refers to the comparatively prosperous and happy times of the reign of Hezekiah.

Gill:

Isaiah 28:5
In that day shall the Lord of hosts be for a crown of glory,.... Or, "glorious crown" (p); surrounding, adorning, and protecting his people; granting them his presence; giving them his grace, and large measures of it; causing them to live soberly, righteously, and godly: this stands opposed to "the crown of pride" before mentioned, and refers to the time when that should be trampled under foot, or when the ten tribes should be carried into captivity, which was in the sixth year of Hezekiah's reign, 2Ki_18:10 at which time, and in whose reign, as well as in the reign of Josiah, this prophecy had its accomplishment:

and for a diadem of beauty: or, "a beautiful diadem" (q); the same as expressed by different words, for the confirmation and illustration of it:

unto the residue of his people; the Arabic version adds, "in Egypt"; the people that remained there, when the others were carried captive, but without any foundation. Jarchi interprets it of the righteous that were left in it, in Samaria, or in Ephraim, in the ten tribes before spoken of; but it is to be understood, as Kimchi observes, of the other two tribes, Judah and Benjamin, which remained in their own land, when others were carried captive, to whom God gave his favours, spiritual and temporal, in the times of Hezekiah and Josiah; and especially the former is meant, and who was a type of Christ, to whom this passage may be applied, who is the glory of his people Israel; and so the Targum paraphrases it,

"in that day shall the Messiah of the Lord of hosts be for a crown of joy;''

and Kimchi says their Rabbins expound this of the King Messiah, in time to come, when both the kingly and priestly glory should be restored; the one being signified by the "crown of glory", the other by the "diadem of beauty".

Henry:

(Isa_28:2), then in that day will the Lord of hosts, of all hosts, distinguish by peculiar favours his people who have distinguished themselves by a steady and singular adherence to him, and that which they most need he will himself be to them. This very much enhances the worth of the promises that God, covenanting to be to his people a God all-sufficient, undertakes to be himself all that to them which they can desire.

(1.) He will put all the credit and honour upon them which are requisite, not only to rescue them from contempt, but to gain them esteem and reputation. He will be to them for a crown of glory and for a diadem of beauty. Those that wore the crown of pride looked upon God's people with disdain, and trampled upon them, for they were the song of the drunkards of Ephraim; but God will so appear for them by his providence as to make it evident that they have his favour towards them, and that shall be to them a crown of glory; for what greater glory can any people have than for God to acknowledge them as his own? And he will so appear in them, by his grace, as to make it evident that they have his image renewed on them, and that shall be to them a diadem of beauty; for what greater beauty can any person have than the beauty of holiness? Note, Those that have God for their God have him for a crown of glory and a diadem of beauty; for they are made to him kings and priests.

(2.) He will give them all the wisdom and grace necessary to the due discharge of the duty of their place. He will himself be a spirit of judgment to those that sit in judgment; the privy counsellors shall be guided by wisdom and discretion and the judges shall govern by justice and equity. It is a great mercy to any people when those that are called to places of power and public trust are qualified for their places, when those that sit in judgment have a spirit of judgment, a spirit of government.

(3.) He will give them all the courage and boldness requisite to carry them resolutely through the difficulties and oppositions they are likely to meet with. He will be for strength to those that turn the battle to the gate, to the gates of the enemy whose cities they besiege, or to their own gates, when they sally out upon the enemies that besiege them. The strength of the soldiery depends as much upon God as the wisdom of the magistracy; and where God gives both these he is to that people a crown of glory. This may well be supposed to refer to Christ, and so the Chaldee paraphrast understands it: In that day shall the Messiah be a crown of glory. Simeon calls him the glory of his people Israel; and he is made of God to us wisdom, righteousness, and strength.


Hands down, Henry gives the best insight, how I love Matt Henry, always full of wisdom, far beyond any other commentary, it is a devotional-Expository combo commentary, heavy on the devotional, so you would need more expository commentaries for other types of study,you want a sermon and wisdom go to Henry, and always take special attention when he says, Note: it always has gems.

Note: read-re-read the portion I highlighted in maroon color, that is something to meditate on and get in your spirit, very great stuff indeed and unlike all the other scholars.

The lord was speaking to my heart about a holy remnant that will not be taken out in the captivity, hence this message is why the lord put on my heart this last days home mission to minister to those during the judgments, may the lord keep us where we are, I know he will somehow, because he said he would.

I have always spoken on and felt there would be a remnant left behind, to preach the word, teach sound doctrine, feed the hungry, cloth those who have no cloths, medical attention, dental care, and a place to stay if needed. The Goshen place location #3 , as i said is going forward, but not with out many hindrances, but it will go forward in the power of the lord.

As you saw in the video I shot during the storm, this barren desert is the wilds, a true odd place, harsh weather, but the lord can use weather to save a remnant and also to destroy the wicked, the lord can open up a 10,000 foot crack and swallow up an army or bandits, and such, the lord can do anything, and I have seen in my mind such things, they will be required to keep a holy, faithful remnant safe, it will take miracles, and deliverance after deliverance form TPTB and evil wicked men that will come and try to take what you have.

The lord said long ago to me, a 10th would remain, a scattered remnant, many will die, a few will not. But a remnant there will be. I do not know if this mission will be spared through the whole ordeal coming, only the lord knows, I feel the lord said this Goshen would be spared to do the Job he has called it to do. many personal words and warnings coming daily, still Judgment, but a reminder there will be a scattered remnant, who? We will see.

I have said before , one of my favorite verses in the bible is found in the O.T. and it is the words of an enemy, the enemy said, " Let not him boast that puts on his Armour, like he who takes it off" That is wild, and true, we shall be by grace some , maybe that will take our Armour off when it is over, not the full Armour of God in Eph 6, we will always need that, I am talking about double, triple padded Armour fit to contend with the coming horseman, as Jer. Says.

No matter how bad the world wants to get rid of all Christians, it never will, not now, not ever, there will always be a holy remnant, remember Goshen, Pella, think on this, do what you can to help those around you, and those who dare come and war against the harsh desert elements are welcome, come soon, as the window is short, even shorter than when I said it a while back.

May the lord have mercy on his true saints, and may the holy bride of Christ, arise and shine, for NOW, this time, Now the glory of the lord has risen upon them ISA 60:1

In this dual word we read they were spared, some were not taken in to captivity, some tribes were safe, at first, than they fell and were judged, but let us learn from this lesson, let us be encouraged by the revelation, some will be spared and for a purpose, not to hide, but to abide in the miracle working , defending power of our lord and King.

After I did this study yesterday I was surprised when I read Wilkerson's word for today, it was a true confirmation, I will post the confirmation now.

A BREAKING OUT!

by David Wilkerson

[May 19, 1931 – April 27, 2011]



Micah brings to our attention one of the most glorious of all Old Testament

prophecies. He prophesied of a people who would follow the Lord to new pasture.

“I will surely assemble, O Jacob, all of thee; I will surely gather the

remnant of Israel; I will put them together as the sheep . . . in the midst of

their fold” (Micah 2:12).



Micah saw a people of God being released, a people whose hearts beat as one, a

people so led by the Spirit they would be called outcasts by the apostate

church. "In that day, saith the Lord, will I assemble her that halteth, and I

will gather her that is driven out, and her that I have afflicted; and I will

make her that halted a remnant, and her that was cast far off a strong nation:

and the Lord shall reign over them in mount Zion from henceforth, even

forever” (Micah 4:6-7).



Who makes up this holy remnant? Not the proud, the self-centered ministries,

the polished, applauded stars. No! These are a tested people who have been in

the fires of trial. They include the unknowns, the outcasts, those who are

considered lame in comparison to the high and mighty established church, and

those who raise their voices against corruption in God's house.



God says, "I will put them together!" All human efforts to bring God's servants

together is in vain. God must do it and the one thing that brings this remnant

together, causing them to see eye to eye, is a repentant heart in union with

Christ.



Jerome, one of the early church fathers and a Bible scholar, describes them as

"those children of God who are repentant and who rise above worldly things and

aspire to heaven." This is a heavenly-minded people, weary of lightness and

compromise, a people who yearn for holiness in God's house. Even now there is a

holy remnant leaping forth from among men. Every man and woman of God whose

heart is broken over the sin and corruption in God's house can sense this leap

of the Spirit! There is a coming out, a breaking out just ahead!

The Day That Superman Died -By John R. Davis Guest Writer


This is the same brother that sent the last message, via snail mail, PTL, also he gave some much needed help, We were facing homelessness, Faith said, 'No', our flesh was starting to get a tad worried. The lord works through people, the lord said, 'Stop looking to man, look to me, have faith in me, and than I will use man, or anyway I choose'. Still need help this month, so please do what you are lead, now this brother from M.O. St. -Note: A timely word, as the area had a car pile up yesterday due to a freak wind storm, and many were hurt in cars. I will be posting footage of the storm tonight and some FYI, some bad news, good news, and spiritual warfare. The vid will be posted around 1 am, or so.

Thank-you my brother for your love gift and this word sent snail mail.

It was a beautiful Spring morning, and my mother and I were on our way home from grocery shopping. We were a little over a mile away from home, when we came upon a car accident that I will never forget. I never stop at car accidents, but this time I felt very compelled to do so. As I pulled the car over to the shoulder to a stop, I said to my mother, “ I'll be right back, I'm going to see if I can help.”

As I walked up to the scene of the accident, I saw a twisted mass of metal that was once a blue minivan. As I made my way up closer, there were five or six people standing near the victim who was thrown at least fifty feet from his vehicle. There was a women leaning over the man on the ground saying in a shaky voice, “ honey, hang in there, the ambulance is coming soon, hang in there honey, hang in there.” Then I saw the man who will forever be etched upon my mind.

He was a mountain of a man with big arms, a huge chest, a shaved head, and a superman logo tattooed on his upper right arm. He was laying flat on his back, his right leg was twisted, and nearly torn off. His eyes were wide opened and completely glassed over. There was a trickle of blood running down from his mouth, and every five or six seconds his huge chest would heave, fighting for air. But what I remember the most was that when he would exhale that blood would spray up into the air, and fall back down onto his face.

There was nothing that any of us could do except wait for the ambulance. I got down on my knees in front of the others, and laid my hand on his broken body and said a short prayer. I said, “ Heavenly father, if it is your will, would you please touch this man and give him one more chance at life, in the name of Jesus I ask you, amen.” Then I heard an, “amen” from a women behind me. The whole scene was just surreal, and beyond anything I ever experienced in my entire life.

The struggle for life and death, heaven and hell, and all of eternity was taking place right before my eyes. While this was going on, I thought it interesting that the world did not stop for this poor man. The sun was shining brightly, the sky was brilliant blue, the birds were singing and a cool breeze was blowing. Finally the ambulance arrived and I moved out of the way as the paramedics began working on him. As I walked back to my car, I was almost sure that he was gone. At home after lunch, I walked around to the side of our house, which offers some privacy. I remember looking up at the blue sky and feeling tears roll down my face, thinking about what I had just witnessed, and I remember thank God that I was saved, and ready to meet the lord had that been me in the accident.

Almost two weeks later, I was driving by where the accident occurred, and someone had placed a cross at the scene where he had indeed died. I have wondered many things about this man, but out of all the things that I have wondered the most about that tragic event is, what what was going on in his mind just one minute before the accident? Was he thinking that good deed of changing an old gentleman’s tire that he had done recently now made him acceptable in the eyes of God? Was he thinking about buying his wife some roses, just to let her know he still cared? Was he singing and praising the lord, and thanking him for such a beautiful day? Had he just fallen in love, and could not get his new girlfriend out of his mind?

Was he rehearsing sporting statistics over and over again in his mind, so that he could impress his new friends down at the sports bar? Was he smiling thinking back to that wild get -away weekend of drinking and adultery- the one his wife thought was on an out of town business trip? Was he suffering from depression, and thinking no one cared for him? Was he thinking of his godly Christian parents and feeling shame and remorse for the way he was secretly living his life? Was he thinking about that preacher on the radio that had just convicted him of his sins, but he turned him off thinking to himself- “ I know that I'm not right with God, but I'll get right with Jesus tomorrow.”

Those six words, “ I'll get right with Jesus tomorrow,” have put untold millions in hell for eternity. 2 Corinthians 6:2 says, Behold now is the accepted time, behold now is the day of salvation. Hebrews 4:7 says, Today if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts.

I have no idea what was really going on in the mind of the man that was killed right before he died, nor do I know his spiritual condition whether lost, saved, or backslidden. But you, reader are alive and still on the planet at this very moment in time.

If you have never accepted Jesus Christ as your personal savior, will you please do so today? There is nothing more important in the entire wold, ask Him to come into your heart, and save you , and to forgive you of all your sins. If you are sincere, he will do it and it will be the greatest day of your life.


Thank-you My brother for that word, I must say, it was very, very hard for me to write with a dry eye, why? As last night my 46 year old brother in-law, Brian Crombie, my sisters husband, died of a sudden heart attck. In Yermo, in the same house me and my wife lived at when we were taking care of the same old man. The same house, all day I have been thinking, what was his last thought? He was a hard working, good man, a New England Pats fan 100%, he still talked like a good ole, N.E. Hard core. I said to myself, as he has had a hard time in Yermo, as I have, will I ever get out of this place, and when I do , it will be a pine box, the lord said, the place the ministry is at is our last stop, next flight is to glory, meaning I will die right in Yermo also. Sad.
Hard to write, and my thoughts and prayers for his kids have been heavy on my mind, this was very hard to write, but thank -you

The Lord In The O.T. To This Day Has Tried Everything To Get People To Listen- Also a Confirmation Sermon By Carter Conlon, The Christians Response to Sodom.



Hos 12:10 I have also spoken by the prophets, and I have multiplied visions, and used similitudes, by the ministry of the prophets.

Clarke:

Hosea 12:10

I have also spoken - I have used every means, and employed every method, to instruct and save you. I have sent prophets, who spake plainly, exhorting, warning, and beseeching you to return to me. They have had Divine visions, which they have declared and interpreted. They have used similitudes, symbols, metaphors, allegories, etc., in order to fix your attention, and bring you back to your duty and interest. And, alas! all is in vain; you have not profited by my condescension. This text St. Paul seems to have had full in view, when he wrote, Heb_1:1 (note): “God who, at Sundry Times and in Divers Manners, spake in time past unto the Fathers by the Prophets.” See the note on the above.

Dr. Dodd supposes that there are three distinct kinds of prophecy mentioned here:

1. Immediate inspiration, when God declares the very words.

2. Vision; a representation of external objects to the mind, in as lively a manner as if there were conveyed by the senses.

3. Parables and apt resemblances.

Wesley simply says this,

Hosea 12:10
Spoken - To warn them of their danger.

The lord has tried everything, every means, different ways, the lord has tried now days the same way, by many different vessels, words, prophecy, and yet, so few listen. The last post below from Wilkerson says the same, no one wants to hear this message of coming Judgment anymore, and still in the lords loveingkindness, He reaches out with words of love and compassion. Of late many do not even want to hear about the love of our Father, they say," How could a God of love allow all this evil in the world, how could he sit by as innocent children die, where is this God of love?", The answer is how could he not allow all this and be a righteous lord. The hardening of Pharaohs heart, the hardening of nations, peoples heart is hardened out of love, so his judgment out of love will be 100% righteous. It is not hard to understand.

People are still seeking after a daily dream, a vision, a prophecy, why? they are not hearing from the lord themselves, this should not be the case. Website surfers, internet Christianity, has become almost all apostate, no one cares, no one gives, all look for a sooth prophet to speak peace, yet the lord says just the opposite, and he changes not, you have, your changing and you do not even know it.

When did the neglected prayer closet, now full of cobwebs start, when did you stop reading and believing what the bible says, and now cling to what man says, or in fear over the local network news? what happened? Only you know. Only you can change this plague of unbelief and apostasy. The lord still tries every day to say, “take heed, return to me with all your heart, not religious observation, rituals, but Me, the one who made you in my image, what happened, what did I do to you”?

I ask you reader, what did the lord do to you? What has caused you to fall from your first love and just play church, you come home and are as empty as you were before you attended a service, and on Monday, more of the same, dead, lifeless, dull, fear, in pain, let down, giving up, what happened, why did you leave? This is a somber call, and a serious message, Church activity, programs, even being in a leadership position can become an Idol, I know it happened to me when I began ministry many years ago, I became segregated by my own vision, it was a good ministry, but it, the ministry, became a wall between me and my solo time alone with the lord, that has not happened since, and by grace it never will again.

The sifted saints, the real holy bride are not proud, do not walk with chins in the air when in public, do not look down on others, frown on the poor, play head games, lie to others all in the name of keeping up a false front, a plastic mask, a idol of your testimony, what do people think, I can not let myself look or sound bad, this is an Idol, it is what it is, you can not please man and the lord at the same time, it can not be done. What about white lies, justified sins? Stretching the truth to make yourself sound better? These are all signs that you have changed and not for the better, but you still can change for the better, as the word says, 'a living dog, is better than a dead lion', you still have breath, you can make it right, TODAY !

So, are you dry enough yet? Are you lonely enough yet? Are you cold hearted towards others enough yet? Has your depression gone on long enough yet? Has your pride consumed your walk enough yet? Has your role in leadership become dead enough yet? Are you still stubborn and unteachable, are you still unable to take correction?

Are you in a spiritual dry spell? All one has to do is repent and return to the lord, get back to prayer, get back to the word, get back to F.T. Christianity and not P.T. Christianity. The remedy is simple, come, return the lord in love and mercy awaits, he still speaks, he is speaking now. The lord has been speaking since he created man in his own image.

Are you tiered of keeping up the religious front, the fake smile, while in secret, at home you are full of Gossip, going to a service and the rest of week living like the devil, or a carnal Christian? The time for game playing is over, I plead for you reader, get right with the lord before his judgment falls, why wait, why wait till Judgment falls and than return, believe me many repent when it all falls, as history repeats, people always return to the lord in hard times, the 1850's stock market collapse, hence the great awakening, the great depression, people came back to the lord, after 911, many came back to the lord, but many soon feel away, because they found no answers to their hearts questions and just dead apostasy, and ministers with no answer. It will be the same in the next coming economic collapse, people will come in masses to the lord, and many will turn away from the lord in anger and become the worst persecutors of the remnant bride. Jesus came not to bring peace, but a sword, brother shall deliver brother to death, both Christian, only one is in apostasy, and these ones will think they are doing God a favor, the bible says.

A mans enemies will be those of his own house hold, his own church, his own people. We are clearly taught this by Jesus, another way of the lord warning of Judgment, and his voice still rings out today, get right, repent, Judgment is coming, you can not stay comfortably numb or sidetracked by the T.V. and neglect the prayer closet or the word, the lord is still saying repent, repent, my judgment is coming, I desire you to be right with me, so you will not be under my wrath, but my wings of provision and protection in the hard days ahead, and thus, this is yet another warning.

I am posting a sermon my conlon, I have not heard it, but I read the title and description ( Content ), and it seems fitting with this word, no doubt , yet another warning from a watchmen on the wall.

David Wilkerson Today-MICAH’S PROPHECY





FRIDAY, AUGUST 23, 2013



MICAH’S PROPHECY

by David Wilkerson

[May 19, 1931 – April 27, 2011]



Micah was a prophet who saw the church through God's eyes, and it caused his

soul to wail and lament! He was seeing in the Spirit what God saw—the deep,

hideous sins of the people, of shepherds and leaders. He saw idolatry! A harlot

church making a harlot's wages.



"Therefore I will wail and howl, I will go stripped and naked. . . . For her

wound is incurable; for it is come unto Judah; he is come unto the gate of my

people, even to Jerusalem" (Micah 1:8-9).



Listen to Micah's lament: "Evil came down from the Lord unto the gate of

Jerusalem. . . . For the transgressions of Israel were found in thee" (Micah

1:12-13).



Micah saw an incurable disease among God's people and an inescapable judgment.

Look at what God calls rebellion and see the cause of His controversy with

them:



  * A new scheme of covetousness concocted by mercenary servants of God, having

to do with money, property, success.

  * An emphasis on self: "Woe to those that devise iniquity . . . because it is

in the power of their hand. They covet fields . . . and houses, and take them

away: so they oppress [my people]" (Micah 2:1-2).

  * Rejection of the prophet's warnings and telling the people that judgment

preaching is not of God, that it is contrary to His character! "Prophesy ye not

. . . Is the Spirit of the Lord [impatient]?” (Micah 2:6-7).



The false prophets and robbing shepherds told Micah to shut up! "Don't preach

so much judgment! We are God's people; He loves us. There will be no judgment

on us." The literal interpretation means, "Drop it! Drop this message of

judgment on God's people! Stop reproaching good people! This is not of God."



But listen to Micah's answer! "Say they to them that prophesy: they shall not

prophesy to them, that they shall not take shame” (Micah 2:6). In other

words, if this message is not preached, the reproach of this place will never

be turned back. "Do not my words do good to him that walketh uprightly?" (Micah

2:7).



Last night I was reading the word, all was Judgment, no matter where I turned to, no matter what book I picked up, e-sword random chapters, the word keeps coming, Judgment, Judgment it is coming, Sept, 2013 will have many events, Judgments will soon start to fall, sept - Oct I feel I have the spirit of the lord, way to many confirmations, beloved it is coming, but we shall not faint, fear, or be in any other way of thinking but victory. I keep getting September 2013, over and over and over, we will see if this is in part , or whole, of late not one word has fallen to the ground, if not Sept-Oct it will be around this time and in 2013.

We Shall Not Faint


Luk_18:1 And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;

2Co_4:1 Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not;

2Co_4:16 For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.

Gal_6:9 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

Eph_3:13 Wherefore I desire that ye faint not at my tribulations for you, which is your glory.

Heb_12:3 For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds.

Heb_12:5 And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him:

First let us look at the Greek:

Faint

Heb_12:5 And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him:

G3089
λύω
luō
loo'-o
A primary verb; to “loosen” (literally or figuratively): - break (up), destroy, dissolve, (un-) loose, melt, put off. Compare G4486.

G4486
ῥήγνυμι, ῥήσσω
rhēgnumi rhēssō
hrayg'-noo-mee, hrace'-so
Both are prolonged forms of ῥήκω rhēko (which appears only in certain forms, and is itself probably a strengthened form of ἄγνυμι agnumi (see in G2608)); to “break”, “wreck” or “crack”, that is, (especially) to sunder (by separation of the parts; G2608 being its intensive (with the preposition in compounds), and G2352 a shattering to minute fragments; but not a reduction to the constituent particles, like G3089) or disrupt, lacerate; by implication to convulse (with spasms); figuratively to give vent to joyful emotions: - break (forth), burst, rend, tear.


The word can mean to lose heart, have a heart of fear, even heart attack from fear. It is a heart issue, from the heart of man issues all in life. The inner man. Falling away is caused many times by fainting, calling it quits, trials and tribulations come, and many call it quits. We will reap IF, there is that IF , before a promise again, If we faint not. Many never reap because they faint, fall away, go back to the world. We are not called to fainting, fear, but power, steadfastness, long suffering, patience in tribulation.

It matters not what you go through, cry out to the lord, and lay it all at His feet, hand over the controls to the one who is in control, and in confidence and boldness, say after, " I will not faint"

It is not time to lose heart, it is not time to live in fear, it is not time to stop trusting in the lord, reader, it is not time to faint.

Are you fainting today, did you recently, repent and move on, rebuke the evil one, put to death your flesh, and move on with where the lord is going.

The key, where is the lord going, where is He at work, if you find that you will find the place you should be serving. Mans plans fail, many times it is all mans plans anyway, what about the lords plans? If we find out what the lord is about to do, as He reveals this to us by his spirit, we plan accordingly.

We are in the end times, of the nation America, we are in the birth pains, we must not come up with a 5 or 10 year plan when the lord has told his bride, I am ready to bring judgment, the nation will fall. If you know this, it is, and should be followed as a end time ministry, things can not carry on with programs, that lead to distractions, that lead to tangents and all planed by man. The lord has something to say, if people will listen. To many are busy fainting, losing heart, once you are reconciled and back on the path with a clean heart and a right spirit, listen to what the lord has to say.

Fainting is not what He is saying, He is saying 'endurance by my power , not yours, success means nothing, obedience does'. The lord can create something out of nothing, that’s what He does, that is why He alone is Lord of all lords. Find where the lord is moving, what the lord is saying, and join him, do not just make human plans and ask the lord to bless your plans, it will be no more than a work of men, the world has seen to much of the work of man, it is looking for a work of God, a work of something that is beyond man, and then they will come.

Fainting over every trouble, fearing over everything you hear shows there is a heart problem that needs to see the great Physician ASAP. O' how the world is sick of religion, man made programs, even many in apostasy, as still more corruption is being reviled daily by the T.V. super stars of nothing, but deception.

It is high time, today to arise and shine, because the glory is upon you, the remnant bride, in the world is darkness, gross darkness over the people, it is time to arise and shine, today! not in a week, but today. Lift up your hands that hang down, and bend your weak knees unto the Holy Sovereign one, be renewed today, back to prayer, back to the word,back to service, do not let the distractions of this world put you in a place where you now have a cold heart towards others, even the lord himself.

Arise, shine, today and faint not, this is the word of the lord, think on this

Are You Thirty , Sixty, Or One Hundred Fold?


Mar 4:20 And these are they which are sown on good ground; such as hear the word, and receive it, and bring forth fruit, some thirty fold, some sixty, and some an hundred.


JFB:

Mark 4:20

And these are they which are sown on good ground; such as hear the word, and receive it, and bring forth fruit, some thirty fold, some sixty, and some an hundred — A heart soft and tender, stirred to its depths on the great things of eternity, and jealously guarded from worldly engrossments, such only is the “honest and good heart” (Luk_8:15), which “keeps,” that is, “retains” the seed of the word, and bears fruit just in proportion as it is such a heart. Such “bring forth fruit with patience” (Mar_4:15), or continuance, “enduring to the end”; in contrast with those in whom the word is “choked” and brings no fruit to perfection.

The “thirtyfold” is designed to express the lowest degree of fruitfulness; the “hundredfold” the highest; and the “sixtyfold” the intermediate degrees of fruitfulness. As a “hundredfold,” though not unexampled (Gen_26:12), is a rare return in the natural husbandry, so the highest degrees of spiritual fruitfulness are too seldom witnessed. The closing words of this introductory parable seem designed to call attention to the fundamental and universal character of it.

As JFB aptly expresses , the 100 fold is rare in fruitfulness, it is like Prov 31, the pitcher of what a perfect wife is, who can obtain it?
It matters not what fold you are, it matters that we all strive to bear fruit, it is pruned so the branch will bear more fruit, no getting around the pruning, it is the way of the cross.

We must strive for the masteries. as Paul said, we are to run the race set before us, we will reap in due season IF we faint not. If, If, If. I have said it a million times the word IF, is connected to almost every single bible promise.

IF, it is small, not hard to find, easy to understand, and found everywhere, it is attached to our eternal salvation ….. IF, the promises of the lord are attached with an IF, 'ask what you will and it will be yours, IF you abide in me and my word abides in you', Jesus word, as in this parable, is the gospel seed, it is planted , but many are called, few are chosen, narrow is the way that leadeth to life and those who find it are few. This is why when someone says, " I am a Christian" I always probe as a preacher, and ask them about what makes them a Christian, why should Jesus let them in heaven, who do you say Jesus is. This is the job of every christian to make disciples of all nations. This includes challenging someones confession, preaching salvation by faith alone, and pointing them to the cross of our lord, and death to self.

In this parable we read some were happy when they received the seed-the gospel, and the cares of this life choked the word, and the seed died. These were true believers, but they fell away do to wanting the world more than the cross. Ease and not the narrow way. Many professing Believers are just that now days, One foot in the gospel, the other foot in the world, but beloved this can not be.

1Ti 1:18 This charge I commit unto thee, son Timothy, according to the prophecies which went before on thee, that thou by them mightest war a good warfare;

1Ti 1:19 Holding faith, and a good conscience; which some having put away concerning faith have made shipwreck:

1Ti 1:20 Of whom is Hymenaeus and Alexander; whom I have delivered unto Satan, that they may learn not to blaspheme.

Concerning the Pastor's, leader's the word says in the CEV version;

1Ti 3:1 It is true that anyone who desires to be a church official wants to be something worthwhile.

1Ti 3:2 That's why officials must have a good reputation and be faithful in marriage. They must be self-controlled, sensible, well-behaved, friendly to strangers, and able to teach.

1Ti 3:3 They must not be heavy drinkers or troublemakers. Instead, they must be kind and gentle and not love money.

The word that grows into fruitation, into a good crop, is all about the word and standing on it, not one foot in and one foot out, your in, or you not, very simple. Many who were once saved have made shipwreck of their faith and have gone as far as becoming blasphemers. Others fell away because they loved this world more as we read;

1Ti 6:3 If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness;

1Ti 6:4 He is proud, knowing nothing, but doting about questions and strifes of words, whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings,

1Ti 6:5 Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself.

1Ti 6:6 But godliness with contentment is great gain.

1Ti 6:7 For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.

1Ti 6:8 And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.

1Ti 6:9 But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition.

1Ti 6:10 For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

1Ti 6:11 But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.

We read Paul gave the name of one who did just this, made shipwreck of his faith, because he loved the world more than the WAY.

2Ti 4:10 For Demas hath forsaken me, having loved this present world, and is departed unto Thessalonica....

JFB:

2 Timothy 4:10

Demas — once a “fellow laborer” of Paul, along with Mark and Luke (Col_4:14; Phm_1:24). His motive for forsaking Paul seems to have been love of worldly ease, safety, and comforts at home, and disinclination to brave danger with Paul (Mat_13:20, Mat_13:21, Mat_13:22). Chrysostom implies that Thessalonica was his home.

Matt Ch 13, is the same parable, and see, we have come full circle, the spirit does this, I did not intend this, it is what happens when you study to show yourself approved, rightly dividing the word... it is for all fruit producing Christians, all the true believers, dig into the word, many know what I am talkig about, the word is alive and active, you do a study, flipping all over the place and somehow you come back to the main message the lord was speaking, it simply amazes me, the Holy Word of the lord, the Bible.

Mat 13:20 But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word, and with joy receiveth it;

Mat 13:21 Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended.

Mat 13:22 He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful.

Full circle, amen. This is what Demas did, he was not just a follower but a worker in the gospel as you can read .

Col 4:14 Luke, the beloved physician, and Demas, greet you.

Phm 1:24 Marcus, Aristarchus, Demas, Lucas, my fellowlabourers.

So, if this can happen to a true worker in the gospel, and not just a carnal Christian, a casual believer, one who professes Christ, but has no fruit, if can happen to anyone. The word says, " let a man not think more highly of himself than he aught to, but take heed lest you fall."

We must be faithful., diligent no matter what we go through, storms of life , bitter trials and tribulations, I know, I am going through them myself , but by grace I can say what Paul said;

2Ti 4:14 Alexander the coppersmith did me much evil: the Lord reward him according to his works:

2Ti 4:15 Of whom be thou ware also; for he hath greatly withstood our words.

2Ti 4:16 At my first answer no man stood with me, but all men forsook me: I pray God that it may not be laid to their charge.

2Ti 4:17 Notwithstanding the Lord stood with me, and strengthened me; that by me the preaching might be fully known, and that all the Gentiles might hear: and I was delivered out of the mouth of the lion.

2Ti 4:18 And the Lord shall deliver me from every evil work, and will preserve me unto his heavenly kingdom: to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.


I quote this almost daily of late,

2Ti 4:18 And the Lord shall deliver me from every evil work....

2Ti 4:17 Notwithstanding the Lord stood with me, and strengthened me; that by me the preaching might be fully known, and that all the Gentiles might hear: and I was delivered out of the mouth of the lion.

This is the way of the cross, all forsook Paul, at his first defense, so who am I. The lord told me in the hand to mouth prophecy I spoke of a while back, it happened just as I was foretold, of late I can say, the lords power, word and anointing has never been stronger, we are getting specific directions every day, the smallest of details, (my Wife and I), since we have been in the new ministry home, have heard personal prophetic words to us, I am talking dozens and dozens, and all were done, came to pass as said, my wife can witness. Many somber warnings, and things to look for that happened just as told. You see I know with out a doubt it is because where we are in the lords direct will, and hence, the enemy is raging, but we are deliverer from the mouth of the lion who lurks around seeking whom he may devour, we are not ignorant of the devices the devil .

The Devil never changes, same attacks over and over, I see the lord moving in ways I have never seen before, I can not even explain them in words, any words about things to come, many dear reader, and it is all still Judgment. Many words of things to take heed of, some false people who we had to cast away, others who are just waiting to see us and this ministry fall, but the lord said, it will not happen. I am humbled , blessed and excited, the lord is on the move, .

Reader are you hearing from the lord, are you getting biblical words form the lord, prophecy that is 100% bible, and not flesh, are you getting a new fresh out pouring? I wonder, let me know, what is happening in your life, give a testimony.

A word about giving a PTL, testimony, confession, prayer need, this is something we have always had in our churches, a time for those attending, to stand up and give a bible verse, a word, a testimony, a confession, a need, we always do this, every service.

Old time Pentecostals did this, most now days do not. The minister can not let go of the reigns for a few moments to let people speak. Paul said when you come together, each has a word, a message, a exhortation, a song, something, it is by this we are blessed and it is by participation we are edified by one another.

I will end with this, This is the root cause, the number one reason I almost stopped on line ministry, esp this the main site, it has never yielded participation, no matter how many times I offered the floor, no one took it.

I see some coming from the same places, never a word, comment, PTL, nothing. I know and see people from the E.U. countries every day, not a word, I also see many coming and are starting to read and listen to the meat of the site, that matters most, the ones who are in countries I have never heard of, seem to be the ones reading and listening to what I call the anointed meat, not just the Ayin series, man that Ayin series, it is in the multiple thousands of reads, I have addressed this, Internet Christianity, and every one is looking for a fortune teller, a prophet that will speak for gold or wine, sorry wrong site, I work for the lord, poverty or not, I and you, if your the real deal, will let the word bloom in you, bring fruit, not be a one leg in, one leg out Christian, but all in 100% that is what our lord looks for, but we were told, many are called few chosen the way is narrow, and people do not like a narrow road, they call it narrow minded, Our lord calls it the way, the truth and the life, the only way, and it is narrow, and few are, that find it.

Are you one that is on the narrow road, are you one that comes daily and is into the world, and just checks in to read or hear the word? Testimony time, give a witness, give a testimony, a prayer request. Let us know if your getting it or not, if you can.
