5 Easter First Psalm: Psalms 61–62 Psalms 61–62 (Listen) Lead Me to the Rock To the choirmaster: with stringed instruments. Of David. 61   Hear my cry, O God,    listen to my prayer;2   from the end of the earth I call to you    when my heart is faint.  Lead me to the rock    that is higher than I,3   for you have been my refuge,    a strong tower against the enemy. 4   Let me dwell in your tent forever!    Let me take refuge under the shelter of your wings! Selah5   For you, O God, have heard my vows;    you have given me the heritage of those who fear your name. 6   Prolong the life of the king;    may his years endure to all generations!7   May he be enthroned forever before God;    appoint steadfast love and faithfulness to watch over him! 8   So will I ever sing praises to your name,    as I perform my vows day after day. My Soul Waits for God Alone To the choirmaster: according to Jeduthun. A Psalm of David. 62   For God alone my soul waits in silence;    from him comes my salvation.2   He alone is my rock and my salvation,    my fortress; I shall not be greatly shaken. 3   How long will all of you attack a man    to batter him,    like a leaning wall, a tottering fence?4   They only plan to thrust him down from his high position.    They take pleasure in falsehood.  They bless with their mouths,    but inwardly they curse. Selah 5   For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence,    for my hope is from him.6   He only is my rock and my salvation,    my fortress; I shall not be shaken.7   On God rests my salvation and my glory;    my mighty rock, my refuge is God. 8   Trust in him at all times, O people;    pour out your heart before him;    God is a refuge for us. Selah 9   Those of low estate are but a breath;    those of high estate are a delusion;  in the balances they go up;    they are together lighter than a breath.10   Put no trust in extortion;    set no vain hopes on robbery;    if riches increase, set not your heart on them. 11   Once God has spoken;    twice have I heard this:  that power belongs to God,12     and that to you, O Lord, belongs steadfast love.  For you will render to a man    according to his work. (ESV) Second Psalm: Psalm 68 Psalm 68 (Listen) God Shall Scatter His Enemies To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David. A Song. 68   God shall arise, his enemies shall be scattered;    and those who hate him shall flee before him!2   As smoke is driven away, so you shall drive them away;    as wax melts before fire,    so the wicked shall perish before God!3   But the righteous shall be glad;    they shall exult before God;    they shall be jubilant with joy! 4   Sing to God, sing praises to his name;    lift up a song to him who rides through the deserts;  his name is the LORD;    exult before him!5   Father of the fatherless and protector of widows    is God in his holy habitation.6   God settles the solitary in a home;    he leads out the prisoners to prosperity,    but the rebellious dwell in a parched land. 7   O God, when you went out before your people,    when you marched through the wilderness, Selah8   the earth quaked, the heavens poured down rain,    before God, the One of Sinai,    before God,1 the God of Israel.9   Rain in abundance, O God, you shed abroad;    you restored your inheritance as it languished;10   your flock2 found a dwelling in it;    in your goodness, O God, you provided for the needy. 11   The Lord gives the word;    the women who announce the news are a great host:12     “The kings of the armies—they flee, they flee!”  The women at home divide the spoil—13     though you men lie among the sheepfolds—  the wings of a dove covered with silver,    its pinions with shimmering gold.14   When the Almighty scatters kings there,    let snow fall on Zalmon. 15   O mountain of God, mountain of Bashan;    O many-peaked3 mountain, mountain of Bashan!16   Why do you look with hatred, O many-peaked mountain,    at the mount that God desired for his abode,    yes, where the LORD will dwell forever?17   The chariots of God are twice ten thousand,    thousands upon thousands;    the Lord is among them; Sinai is now in the sanctuary.18   You ascended on high,    leading a host of captives in your train    and receiving gifts among men,  even among the rebellious, that the LORD God may dwell there. 19   Blessed be the Lord,    who daily bears us up;    God is our salvation. Selah20   Our God is a God of salvation,    and to GOD, the Lord, belong deliverances from death.21   But God will strike the heads of his enemies,    the hairy crown of him who walks in his guilty ways.22   The Lord said,    “I will bring them back from Bashan,  I will bring them back from the depths of the sea,23   that you may strike your feet in their blood,    that the tongues of your dogs may have their portion from the foe.” 24   Your procession is4 seen, O God,    the procession of my God, my King, into the sanctuary—25   the singers in front, the musicians last,    between them virgins playing tambourines:26   “Bless God in the great congregation,    the LORD, O you5 who are of Israel's fountain!”27   There is Benjamin, the least of them, in the lead,    the princes of Judah in their throng,    the princes of Zebulun, the princes of Naphtali. 28   Summon your power, O God,6    the power, O God, by which you have worked for us.29   Because of your temple at Jerusalem    kings shall bear gifts to you.30   Rebuke the beasts that dwell among the reeds,    the herd of bulls with the calves of the peoples.  Trample underfoot those who lust after tribute;    scatter the peoples who delight in war.731   Nobles shall come from Egypt;    Cush shall hasten to stretch out her hands to God. 32   O kingdoms of the earth, sing to God;    sing praises to the Lord, Selah33   to him who rides in the heavens, the ancient heavens;    behold, he sends out his voice, his mighty voice.34   Ascribe power to God,    whose majesty is over Israel,    and whose power is in the skies.35   Awesome is God from his8 sanctuary;    the God of Israel—he is the one who gives power and strength to his people.  Blessed be God!

With family: Numbers 25; Psalm 68 Numbers 25 (Listen) Baal Worship at Peor 25 While Israel lived in Shittim, the people began to whore with the daughters of Moab. 2 These invited the people to the sacrifices of their gods, and the people ate and bowed down to their gods. 3 So Israel yoked himself to Baal of Peor. And the anger of the LORD was kindled against Israel. 4 And the LORD said to Moses, “Take all the chiefs of the people and hang1 them in the sun before the LORD, that the fierce anger of the LORD may turn away from Israel.” 5 And Moses said to the judges of Israel, “Each of you kill those of his men who have yoked themselves to Baal of Peor.” 6 And behold, one of the people of Israel came and brought a Midianite woman to his family, in the sight of Moses and in the sight of the whole congregation of the people of Israel, while they were weeping in the entrance of the tent of meeting. 7 When Phinehas the son of Eleazar, son of Aaron the priest, saw it, he rose and left the congregation and took a spear in his hand 8 and went after the man of Israel into the chamber and pierced both of them, the man of Israel and the woman through her belly. Thus the plague on the people of Israel was stopped. 9 Nevertheless, those who died by the plague were twenty-four thousand. The Zeal of Phinehas 10 And the LORD said to Moses, 11 “Phinehas the son of Eleazar, son of Aaron the priest, has turned back my wrath from the people of Israel, in that he was jealous with my jealousy among them, so that I did not consume the people of Israel in my jealousy. 12 Therefore say, ‘Behold, I give to him my covenant of peace, 13 and it shall be to him and to his descendants after him the covenant of a perpetual priesthood, because he was jealous for his God and made atonement for the people of Israel.'” 14 The name of the slain man of Israel, who was killed with the Midianite woman, was Zimri the son of Salu, chief of a father's house belonging to the Simeonites. 15 And the name of the Midianite woman who was killed was Cozbi the daughter of Zur, who was the tribal head of a father's house in Midian. 16 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, 17 “Harass the Midianites and strike them down, 18 for they have harassed you with their wiles, with which they beguiled you in the matter of Peor, and in the matter of Cozbi, the daughter of the chief of Midian, their sister, who was killed on the day of the plague on account of Peor.” Footnotes [1] 25:4 Or impale (ESV) Psalm 68 (Listen) God Shall Scatter His Enemies To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David. A Song. 68   God shall arise, his enemies shall be scattered;    and those who hate him shall flee before him!2   As smoke is driven away, so you shall drive them away;    as wax melts before fire,    so the wicked shall perish before God!3   But the righteous shall be glad;    they shall exult before God;    they shall be jubilant with joy! 4   Sing to God, sing praises to his name;    lift up a song to him who rides through the deserts;  his name is the LORD;    exult before him!5   Father of the fatherless and protector of widows    is God in his holy habitation.6   God settles the solitary in a home;    he leads out the prisoners to prosperity,    but the rebellious dwell in a parched land. 7   O God, when you went out before your people,    when you marched through the wilderness, Selah8   the earth quaked, the heavens poured down rain,    before God, the One of Sinai,    before God,1 the God of Israel.9   Rain in abundance, O God, you shed abroad;    you restored your inheritance as it languished;10   your flock2 found a dwelling in it;    in your goodness, O God, you provided for the needy. 11   The Lord gives the word;    the women who announce the news are a great host:12     “The kings of the armies—they flee, they flee!”  The women at home divide the spoil—13     though you men lie among the sheepfolds—  the wings of a dove covered with silver,    its pinions with shimmering gold.14   When the Almighty scatters kings there,    let snow fall on Zalmon. 15   O mountain of God, mountain of Bashan;    O many-peaked3 mountain, mountain of Bashan!16   Why do you look with hatred, O many-peaked mountain,    at the mount that God desired for his abode,    yes, where the LORD will dwell forever?17   The chariots of God are twice ten thousand,    thousands upon thousands;    the Lord is among them; Sinai is now in the sanctuary.18   You ascended on high,    leading a host of captives in your train    and receiving gifts among men,  even among the rebellious, that the LORD God may dwell there. 19   Blessed be the Lord,    who daily bears us up;    God is our salvation.

Footnotes [1] 15:2 Hebrew the house [2] 15:2 Or temple, even Dibon to the high places [3] 15:9 Dead Sea Scroll, Vulgate (compare Syriac); Masoretic Text Dimon; twice in this verse (ESV) 1 Peter 3 (Listen) Wives and Husbands 3 Likewise, wives, be subject to your own husbands, so that even if some do not obey the word, they may be won without a word by the conduct of their wives, 2 when they see your respectful and pure conduct. 3 Do not let your adorning be external—the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear—4 but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God's sight is very precious. 5 For this is how the holy women who hoped in God used to adorn themselves, by submitting to their own husbands, 6 as Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord. And you are her children, if you do good and do not fear anything that is frightening. 7 Likewise, husbands, live with your wives in an understanding way, showing honor to the woman as the weaker vessel, since they are heirs with you1 of the grace of life, so that your prayers may not be hindered. Suffering for Righteousness' Sake 8 Finally, all of you, have unity of mind, sympathy, brotherly love, a tender heart, and a humble mind. 9 Do not repay evil for evil or reviling for reviling, but on the contrary, bless, for to this you were called, that you may obtain a blessing. 10 For   “Whoever desires to love life    and see good days,  let him keep his tongue from evil    and his lips from speaking deceit;11   let him turn away from evil and do good;    let him seek peace and pursue it.12   For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous,    and his ears are open to their prayer.  But the face of the Lord is against those who do evil.” 13 Now who is there to harm you if you are zealous for what is good? 14 But even if you should suffer for righteousness' sake, you will be blessed. Have no fear of them, nor be troubled, 15 but in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect, 16 having a good conscience, so that, when you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ may be put to shame. 17 For it is better to suffer for doing good, if that should be God's will, than for doing evil. 18 For Christ also suffered2 once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive in the spirit, 19 in which3 he went and proclaimed4 to the spirits in prison, 20 because5 they formerly did not obey, when God's patience waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was being prepared, in which a few, that is, eight persons, were brought safely through water. 21 Baptism, which corresponds to this, now saves you, not as a removal of dirt from the body but as an appeal to God for a good conscience, through the resurrection of Jesus Christ, 22 who has gone into heaven and is at the right hand of God, with angels, authorities, and powers having been subjected to him.

When they arrived in Bethlehem, the whole town was stirred because of them, and the women exclaimed, “Can this be Naomi?” 20 “Don't call me Naomi,” she told them. “Call me Mara, because the Almighty has made my life very bitter.  21 I went away full, but the Lord has brought me back empty.

With family: Numbers 24; Psalms 66–67 Numbers 24 (Listen) Balaam's Third Oracle 24 When Balaam saw that it pleased the LORD to bless Israel, he did not go, as at other times, to look for omens, but set his face toward the wilderness. 2 And Balaam lifted up his eyes and saw Israel camping tribe by tribe. And the Spirit of God came upon him, 3 and he took up his discourse and said,   “The oracle of Balaam the son of Beor,    the oracle of the man whose eye is opened,14   the oracle of him who hears the words of God,    who sees the vision of the Almighty,    falling down with his eyes uncovered:5   How lovely are your tents, O Jacob,    your encampments, O Israel!6   Like palm groves2 that stretch afar,    like gardens beside a river,  like aloes that the LORD has planted,    like cedar trees beside the waters.7   Water shall flow from his buckets,    and his seed shall be in many waters;  his king shall be higher than Agag,    and his kingdom shall be exalted.8   God brings him out of Egypt    and is for him like the horns of the wild ox;  he shall eat up the nations, his adversaries,    and shall break their bones in pieces    and pierce them through with his arrows.9   He crouched, he lay down like a lion    and like a lioness; who will rouse him up?  Blessed are those who bless you,    and cursed are those who curse you.” 10 And Balak's anger was kindled against Balaam, and he struck his hands together. And Balak said to Balaam, “I called you to curse my enemies, and behold, you have blessed them these three times. 11 Therefore now flee to your own place. I said, ‘I will certainly honor you,' but the LORD has held you back from honor.” 12 And Balaam said to Balak, “Did I not tell your messengers whom you sent to me, 13 ‘If Balak should give me his house full of silver and gold, I would not be able to go beyond the word of the LORD, to do either good or bad of my own will. What the LORD speaks, that will I speak'? 14 And now, behold, I am going to my people. Come, I will let you know what this people will do to your people in the latter days.” Balaam's Final Oracle 15 And he took up his discourse and said,   “The oracle of Balaam the son of Beor,    the oracle of the man whose eye is opened,16   the oracle of him who hears the words of God,    and knows the knowledge of the Most High,  who sees the vision of the Almighty,    falling down with his eyes uncovered:17   I see him, but not now;    I behold him, but not near:  a star shall come out of Jacob,    and a scepter shall rise out of Israel;  it shall crush the forehead3 of Moab    and break down all the sons of Sheth.18   Edom shall be dispossessed;    Seir also, his enemies, shall be dispossessed.    Israel is doing valiantly.19   And one from Jacob shall exercise dominion    and destroy the survivors of cities!” 20 Then he looked on Amalek and took up his discourse and said,   “Amalek was the first among the nations,    but its end is utter destruction.” 21 And he looked on the Kenite, and took up his discourse and said,   “Enduring is your dwelling place,    and your nest is set in the rock.22   Nevertheless, Kain shall be burned    when Asshur takes you away captive.” 23 And he took up his discourse and said,   “Alas, who shall live when God does this?24     But ships shall come from Kittim  and shall afflict Asshur and Eber;    and he too shall come to utter destruction.” 25 Then Balaam rose and went back to his place.

An Oracle Concerning Philistia 28 In the year that King Ahaz died came this oracle: 29   Rejoice not, O Philistia, all of you,    that the rod that struck you is broken,  for from the serpent's root will come forth an adder,    and its fruit will be a flying fiery serpent.30   And the firstborn of the poor will graze,    and the needy lie down in safety;  but I will kill your root with famine,    and your remnant it will slay.31   Wail, O gate; cry out, O city;    melt in fear, O Philistia, all of you!  For smoke comes out of the north,    and there is no straggler in his ranks. 32   What will one answer the messengers of the nation?  “The LORD has founded Zion,    and in her the afflicted of his people find refuge.” Footnotes [1] 14:2 Or servants [2] 14:4 Dead Sea Scroll (compare Septuagint, Syriac, Vulgate); the meaning of the word in the Masoretic Text is uncertain [3] 14:13 Or in the remote parts of Zaphon [4] 14:18 Hebrew house [5] 14:23 Possibly porcupine, or owl (ESV) 1 Peter 2 (Listen) A Living Stone and a Holy People 2 So put away all malice and all deceit and hypocrisy and envy and all slander. 2 Like newborn infants, long for the pure spiritual milk, that by it you may grow up into salvation—3 if indeed you have tasted that the Lord is good. 4 As you come to him, a living stone rejected by men but in the sight of God chosen and precious, 5 you yourselves like living stones are being built up as a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. 6 For it stands in Scripture:

With family: Numbers 23; Psalms 64–65 Numbers 23 (Listen) Balaam's First Oracle 23 And Balaam said to Balak, “Build for me here seven altars, and prepare for me here seven bulls and seven rams.” 2 Balak did as Balaam had said. And Balak and Balaam offered on each altar a bull and a ram. 3 And Balaam said to Balak, “Stand beside your burnt offering, and I will go. Perhaps the LORD will come to meet me, and whatever he shows me I will tell you.” And he went to a bare height, 4 and God met Balaam. And Balaam said to him, “I have arranged the seven altars and I have offered on each altar a bull and a ram.” 5 And the LORD put a word in Balaam's mouth and said, “Return to Balak, and thus you shall speak.” 6 And he returned to him, and behold, he and all the princes of Moab were standing beside his burnt offering. 7 And Balaam took up his discourse and said,   “From Aram Balak has brought me,    the king of Moab from the eastern mountains:  ‘Come, curse Jacob for me,    and come, denounce Israel!'8   How can I curse whom God has not cursed?    How can I denounce whom the LORD has not denounced?9   For from the top of the crags I see him,    from the hills I behold him;  behold, a people dwelling alone,    and not counting itself among the nations!10   Who can count the dust of Jacob    or number the fourth part1 of Israel?  Let me die the death of the upright,    and let my end be like his!” 11 And Balak said to Balaam, “What have you done to me? I took you to curse my enemies, and behold, you have done nothing but bless them.” 12 And he answered and said, “Must I not take care to speak what the LORD puts in my mouth?” Balaam's Second Oracle 13 And Balak said to him, “Please come with me to another place, from which you may see them. You shall see only a fraction of them and shall not see them all. Then curse them for me from there.” 14 And he took him to the field of Zophim, to the top of Pisgah, and built seven altars and offered a bull and a ram on each altar. 15 Balaam said to Balak, “Stand here beside your burnt offering, while I meet the LORD over there.” 16 And the LORD met Balaam and put a word in his mouth and said, “Return to Balak, and thus shall you speak.” 17 And he came to him, and behold, he was standing beside his burnt offering, and the princes of Moab with him. And Balak said to him, “What has the LORD spoken?” 18 And Balaam took up his discourse and said,   “Rise, Balak, and hear;    give ear to me, O son of Zippor:19   God is not man, that he should lie,    or a son of man, that he should change his mind.  Has he said, and will he not do it?    Or has he spoken, and will he not fulfill it?20   Behold, I received a command to bless:    he has blessed, and I cannot revoke it.21   He has not beheld misfortune in Jacob,    nor has he seen trouble in Israel.  The LORD their God is with them,    and the shout of a king is among them.22   God brings them out of Egypt    and is for them like the horns of the wild ox.23   For there is no enchantment against Jacob,    no divination against Israel;  now it shall be said of Jacob and Israel,    ‘What has God wrought!'24   Behold, a people! As a lioness it rises up    and as a lion it lifts itself;  it does not lie down until it has devoured the prey    and drunk the blood of the slain.” 25 And Balak said to Balaam, “Do not curse them at all, and do not bless them at all.” 26 But Balaam answered Balak, “Did I not tell you, ‘All that the LORD says, that I must do'?” 27 And Balak said to Balaam, “Come now, I will take you to another place. Perhaps it will please God that you may curse them for me from there.” 28 So Balak took Balaam to the top of Peor, which overlooks the desert.2 29 And Balaam said to Balak, “Build for me here seven altars and prepare for me here seven bulls and seven rams.” 30 And Balak did as Balaam had said, and offered a bull and a ram on each altar.

Born Again to a Living Hope 3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 4 to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you, 5 who by God's power are being guarded through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. 6 In this you rejoice, though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been grieved by various trials, 7 so that the tested genuineness of your faith—more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire—may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ. 8 Though you have not seen him, you love him. Though you do not now see him, you believe in him and rejoice with joy that is inexpressible and filled with glory, 9 obtaining the outcome of your faith, the salvation of your souls. 10 Concerning this salvation, the prophets who prophesied about the grace that was to be yours searched and inquired carefully, 11 inquiring what person or time1 the Spirit of Christ in them was indicating when he predicted the sufferings of Christ and the subsequent glories. 12 It was revealed to them that they were serving not themselves but you, in the things that have now been announced to you through those who preached the good news to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven, things into which angels long to look. Called to Be Holy 13 Therefore, preparing your minds for action,2 and being sober-minded, set your hope fully on the grace that will be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ. 14 As obedient children, do not be conformed to the passions of your former ignorance, 15 but as he who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, 16 since it is written, “You shall be holy, for I am holy.” 17 And if you call on him as Father who judges impartially according to each one's deeds, conduct yourselves with fear throughout the time of your exile, 18 knowing that you were ransomed from the futile ways inherited from your forefathers, not with perishable things such as silver or gold, 19 but with the precious blood of Christ, like that of a lamb without blemish or spot. 20 He was foreknown before the foundation of the world but was made manifest in the last times for the sake of you 21 who through him are believers in God, who raised him from the dead and gave him glory, so that your faith and hope are in God. 22 Having purified your souls by your obedience to the truth for a sincere brotherly love, love one another earnestly from a pure heart, 23 since you have been born again, not of perishable seed but of imperishable, through the living and abiding word of God; 24 for   “All flesh is like grass    and all its glory like the flower of grass.  The grass withers,    and the flower falls,25   but the word of the Lord remains forever.” And this word is the good news that was preached to you.

A counselor friend asked how you encourage someone when they are angry at God for what happened to them? The lady is mad because Sovereign Lord did not protect her from horrific victimization. He has been meeting with her for weeks, and wondered if he should give similar counsel the Lord gave to Job, “Where were you when I laid the earth's foundation? Tell me, if you have understanding. Shall a faultfinder contend with the Almighty? He who argues with God, let him answer it.” His question is intriguing and needs careful examination when helping the unchanging, hurt soul.

This afternoon (5/10/22), in our Rambam Bekius chavurah, we attempted to understand what the Rambam might mean by "bizui" in his discussion of being mevazeh talmidei chachamim. We developed our answer based on how the term is used in Tanach and by Chazal before looking at how the Rambam, himself, uses the term elsewhere. We came away with an approach which will likely be tested as we go through these next halachos.--------מקורות:רמב"ם - משנה תורה: ספר המדע, הלכות תלמוד תורה ו:יאבמדבר טו:ל-לאתרגום אונקלוס - שםתורה תמימה - שםספר השורשים לרד"ק - ב.ז.ה.שמואל ב' יב:א-טאסתר א:יז-יחרמב"ם - משנה תורה: ספר המדע, הלכות תשובה ג:ח,ידרמב"ם - הקדמה למשנהR' Yosef Dov Soloveitchik, Remarks Made to RIETS Rabbinic Alumni, a.k.a.

Nuclear Exchange with Russia?  (Audio) David Eells - 5/8/22   Ready to Begin: "I Come to Avenge and Fulfill All"Excerpt from Dumitru Duduman's PropheciesNovember 21, 1994 "Awaken, my people", says the voice of the Lord. "Be passive no longer. Draw closer today more than ever, for the day of my vengeance is ready to begin". "I will shake the earth from its foundation (earthquakes?), and I will require punishment of all those that say they do my will, yet through what they do, they blaspheme my name. I will punish prophets, preachers, singers, and all those that do a work yet do it for their own glory. I will judge and punish the entire world. Only those that today sit at my feet in meekness, weeping, and worshiping me, asking for my help, will rejoice in the protection of the arm of the Lord on that day. "Forsake every evil thought, all the empty words, all covetousness, pride, and hypocrisy, because in whatever you are doing, it is not you doing it, but I, the Lord. Where are my clean gifts that I have poured among you: speaking in tongues, prophecy, and other gifts that were given unto you? Where is my power?" says the Lord. "Change your hearts, my people, today, for the days are numbered until I will begin to avenge. My eye sees in the light as well as in the darkness, my people. There is nowhere you can hide from the eye of God. Liars, imposters, those that are covetous, and all those that have only a form of Godliness, but deny the power of God, I will judge them, and then I will judge the whole world. I will shake it from its foundations. In many places there will be massacres. Those that today worship me with faithfulness will be the only ones protected on that day. The horn is ready to sound for the start of the battle. The days are numbered until you will hear the sound, when the armies of heaven will begin the battle against the inhabitants of earth. No army in the world will be able to stand against the armies of heaven, and the army of hell will not be able to raise its head against the Lord's army. Yet those that worshiped me in spirit and in truth I will protect, for I am God. Everything you see around you will be no more. Everything will be destroyed and burn in fire. Do not be passive. Draw close to me, for I come to avenge and fulfill all that was said in the past.", says the Lord. An Angry Bear AwakensExcerpt from Dumitru Duduman's PropheciesApril 1997 I knelt by my bed to pray, as I do every night before going to sleep. After finishing my prayer, I opened my eyes, but I was no longer in my room. Instead, I found myself in a forest. I looked around, and to my right I saw a man dressed in white who pointed his finger and said, "See and remember". It took me a while to find what he was pointing at. It was a small bear who seemed half dead lying on the ground. As I continued to watch this bear, it began to breathe deeper. With every passing minute it seemed to revive itself, and, as I watched, it also became angrier. It then began to grow. Soon it was larger than the forest floor, and as it grew larger, it continued to become angrier. It then began to paw the ground, so that when its paw would hit the ground, the earth would shudder. The bear continued to devastate all that stood in its path until it came upon some men with sticks trying to fend it off. (Don't pay any attention to the lies, they have won this war in Ukraine but the DS needs a bigger war that hurts the US. They have taken down the Nazi's, the bio-labs, the tunnels and dungeons with the captive children, and the evidence of DS crimes, etc.)  By this time the bear had grown so large that it simply crushed the men underfoot and continued its rampage. I was stunned by what I saw and asked the man standing beside me, "What does this mean?" "At first they thought the great bear was dead,”  the man said. (If you listen to MSM.) "As it will begin to stir once again, they will consider it harmless. Suddenly, it will grow strong once more with purpose and violence. (They have made tremendous advances in weaponry.) God will blind the eyes of those that continue to trample on the sacrifice of Christ's blood, until the day the bear will strike swiftly. This day will catch them unprepared, and it will be just as you saw". The man then said, "Tell my people the days are numbered and the sentence has been passed. If they will seek My face and walk in righteousness before Me, I will open their eyes that they may see the danger approach. If they only look to the approaching danger, they, too, will be caught up and trampled underfoot. Only in righteousness will they find safety". Suddenly, I was once again by myself in my room, on my knees, with sweat covering my face.   Russian Nuclear Exchange with U.S. Garrett Crawford - 4/29/22   I dreamed that everyone was stocking up on food at a grocery store late at night. (Insiders are warning to have at least 3 to 6 months of food stored up. As far as believers go, we know that God shall supply our every need according to His riches in Glory.) I saw many people rushing at the last minute to get prepared. There was a general sense of uncertainty in the air. Many who had been expecting an event to happen were already prepared. (And it may be that these will have to help those around them and miracles will happen.) For some reason Sylvester Stallone was in the dream and he was getting prepared too, but he had lost heart and his courage had left him. He was not mentally or spiritually prepared. (Sylvester plays the part of a strong warrior, so to speak, but it appears even they will lose heart through the things coming.)  I told him he could stay with me as I had been preparing for this for sometime. (The most important way to prepare is spiritually for the Word says, “Righteousness delivereth from death.”)  As we were leaving the store, I noticed many people's cars had been stolen from the parking lot while they were buying supplies. People came out to find their cars were gone, they were in disbelief. Sylvester and I thought that my car had been stolen too but we eventually found it. (Having their cars stolen out of the parking lot represents that rest and peace will be taken from the lives of many.) We were somewhere talking and he could not understand why I was happy and not scared. He felt he had so much more to live for on this Earth and he was upset that it was all being taken from him. (Many lives will be turned upside down in order to get their attention and cause them to seek the Lord once He has destroyed all their worldly idols.) I, on the other hand, had no love for the world and the things in it, I could literally feel nothing because this Earth had no hold on me. I felt freer than any man alive. (John 12:25 He that loveth his life loseth it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal.) Around this time, I had a flashback to the beginning of the day. It was light outside and the sun was out. I was walking through the parking lot of the grocery store and the Word of Lord came to me saying, "At this time the wise will shine brighter than the sun and will instruct many.”  (The Man-child reformers will be anointed with the wisdom of Jesus and will instruct many in the way of righteousness.) The next thing I knew, the scene changed and I was at my dad's house in Bethel. (Representing the Father's "House of Bread”. Those feeding on the Bread from Heaven, Jesus Christ, the Word of the Lord, will be in the rest.) I was all alone with my dogs and cat. (The elect among all the factious dogs and those who were in rebellion to God and His Word will return to the Father's house.) I remember watching the war in Ukraine taking place over my dad's house, like an open vision, but it was something tangible that I was actually experiencing. (Like the death angel that passed over the houses of the Israelites, this “war” and its fall-out will pass over the elect of God.)  I saw that America had been assisting Ukraine. I even saw America launching attacks to aid Ukraine, but there was a grave mistake made and an American missile had been launched accidentally and it hit a Russian target. (Will this be accidental or on purpose? The D.S. has been provoking the nuclear option and would love to escalate this conflict to continue to deflect away from the declass of all their evil crimes that are coming to light and to depopulate and to try to derail the 2022 midterm elections so that they can hold on to power. Also it was admitted that the U.S. helped the Ukrainians sink the Russian flagship Moskva and it was an American missile. No one would admit this unless they wanted the Russians to retaliate.) This ‘accident' caused the whole world to stop. Everyone wondered what Russia would do, but no one expected that Russia would retaliate against America. (Putin has come out publicly and warned that any attack on Russia by NATO or U.S. and Western forces during this Ukraine conflict would be reciprocated, presumably against the D.S.) Then I watched what appeared to be a large missile silo open and a projectile came out and was fired at America. The missile hit America inside her borders and everyone was in a state of shock. No one actually believed Russia would retaliate but they did and with fierce wrath. (Putin and Russia has been fighting the D.S. and they would know who this missile is coming from and would pick their targets.) The weapon they used made 7 waves of fire blast throughout America like fiery shockwaves. The sound of the weapon was like a siren. Every blast was accompanied by the most ominous siren sound; seven blasts and seven sirens. (This seems to be a multiple warhead missile. Also could seven blasts announce the approach of the seven trumps of the Tribulation?)  After the last blast I looked outside and America was on fire. (I asked and he said, "It could have been multiple warheads".) It was just 1 missile launch from each side and after Russia struck with their missile they did not continue. It was like an eye for an eye. I felt in the dream that America was playing a dangerous game with Russia that backfired.) (Even though the military has moved interceptor missiles to the coast in the night, they evidently didn't intercept this. Their missiles have multiple warheads that spread out to different areas and are considered by many to be unstoppable due to its evasive maneuvers.) Everyone in America was in complete disbelief. I heard a man say, "I can't believe they did it, I can't believe they actually attacked us!”. After the blasts I surveyed the damage and my dad's house was still standing. Both my dogs were in the house with me and survived. I opened the front door (Jesus) and my cat was there. (Many of the rebellious who are God's elect will return to the Father's House of Bread.) He had survived the carnage even though he had been outside of the house. Then I woke up. Let's pray and ask mercy of the Lord on this.   Rev 6:2  And I saw, and behold, a white horse, and he that sat thereon had a bow; and there was given unto him a crown: and he came forth conquering, and to conquer. 3 And when he opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature saying, Come. 4  And another horse came forth, a red horse: and to him that sat thereon it was given to take peace from the earth, and that they should slay one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.   CONFIRMED: "U.S. and Allies Preparing for Russian Use of Nuclear Weapons" Hal Turner - 4/30/22 Link to Article   Undersecretary of State Victoria Nuland today publicly stated "If Moscow uses nuclear weapons, it will never recover from the consequences." She then went on to confirm: "Since the beginning of this conflict, we have already understood that the threats posed by Putin must be taken seriously. That's why the U.S. and our allies are preparing for this development," Nuland said.  These astonishing remarks by the U.S. Undersecretary of State come just one day after the top TV New Network in the Russian Federation, a network called Rossiya-1, broadcast to the entire nation of Russia the map shown in the link above.  The map shows that a single Russian "SARMAT" Intercontinental Ballistic Missile, when launched from Kaliningrad, would vaporize Berlin, Germany in 106 seconds, Paris, France in 200 seconds, and London, England, in 202 seconds after launch!   All three cities would be hit from a single Russian SARMAT missile launch!! From launch to impact, even the most distant city, London, would only have about 3 1/2 MINUTES of radar warning . . . not even enough time to ask the Prime Minister for permission to shoot back, and certainly not enough time to warn the general public even to take shelter. The Populations of those cities are as follows: Berlin, Germany: 3.645 million (2019) Paris, France: 2.161 million (2019) London, England: 8.982 million (2019) Almost no one in any of those cities would survive. The initial multi-blast shockwaves (~30,000 P.S.I.) and thermal radiation (the heat from the bright, white, flash) would vaporize everything within 1.5 miles (2.4km) of each blast. Absolutely nothing would survive.    USA / NATO Gearing up for Counterattack Against Russian Forces in July or August,  with High Risk of Escalated Retaliatory Strikes by Russia  Monday, May 02, 2022 by: Mike Adams   (Natural News) Based on facts that have now been made public, it is clear that the USA and NATO are gearing up for a massive military counterattack against Russian forces in Ukraine. Based on the idea that it takes a few months to build up logistics, hardware and personnel, the likely timeline for this counterattack appears to be around the July / August time frame. Keep in mind that the overarching context of all this is the plan to cancel the 2022 mid-terms by placing America into a world war before November, accompanied by a domestic police state / martial law response that now includes an actual Ministry of Truth run by Homeland Security (DHS). (An obvious communist attack on free speech and the constitution.) Some of the information supporting the coming counterattack includes the recent revelation that military pilot cadets from Ukraine were secretly moved to the United States in March in order to undergo intensive F-16 fighter pilot training in preparation for deployment against Russia. We understand that Ukrainian military teams are undergoing similar training in artillery and tank command as well. Seasoned military observers would correctly point out that you can't train an effective F-16 fighter pilot in just a few months (nor a tank commander, etc.), yet this only speaks to the desperation of USA / NATO / Ukrainian efforts to try to throw almost anything at the Russians in an effort to stop the seemingly unstoppable, grinding advancement of Russian forces across southern Ukraine. (Reminds us of the men who went out with sticks against the bear.) In addition to the above, it's also clear that USA / NATO forces are planning to cobble together a false flag operation in Ukraine — likely involving chemical weapons (and/or nukes) — in order to trigger the internal justification to deploy US troops directly against Russian forces in Ukraine. Congressman Adam Kinzinger has introduced a “Ukraine War Resolution” that specifies this exact escalation plan, in fact. The timing of the chemical false flag will likely be sometime in June, allowing the US media to whip up outrage and anti-Russia hatred — as the media's primary job these days is to teach hatred and intolerance to the gullible sheeple — to the point where the American people are screaming for World War III. Falling in line with the engineered outrage, US Senators and House members will call for a declaration of war against Russia, and that will be echoed by the criminal cabal running the fake White House Oval Office sound stage from which fake president Biden declares whatever current state of confusion he is expressing on that particular day. By July or August, it seems, we will be in a full-blown World War III against Russia, with US troops and weapons deployed in Ukraine, facing off against the far better-equipped Russian forces which have very short supply lines back to Russia, compared to the extremely long supply lines from the USA to Western Ukraine (which involves crossing the Atlantic and all of Western Europe, then somehow navigating Ukraine's blown up railroads and destroyed bridges while under heavy fire from Russian air power and missiles). America will very likely attempt to strike infrastructure targets inside Russia As the counterattack against Russia gets under way, it is very likely that US and NATO forces will unleash attempted missile strikes, drone strikes or bombing runs targeting infrastructure installations in Russia. The primary objective will be to cut off Russia's domestic supply of fuel, steel, ammunition, etc. But this move would clearly cross the line in Russia's mind, forcing Russia to realize that this western war is an existential threat against the very survival of Russia as a nation. This realization is only exacerbated by admissions from US high-level Pentagon officials that they are deliberately trying to weaken Russia and destroy Russia's ability to ever wage war again. Thus, Russia will quickly reach the conclusion that it will need to escalate its retaliatory strikes to something more than mere cruise missiles and artillery. Although we can't read Putin's mind, it seems likely that he has already realized that sooner or later, he needs to take out the USA's supply chain in order to stop the flow of weapons (and military training) to Ukraine from the United States. (At the moment it appears that all the hardware reaching the Ukraine is being destroyed.) Interestingly, the USA is now threatening China with economic sanctions if China supplies weapons to Russia. So according to the USA, only Ukraine can be augmented with weapons, but never Russia. Why Russia will likely prefer an EMP retaliatory strike against the USA and NATO nations Russia has vastly superior ICBM systems such as the new SARMAT-2 missile with up to 15 MIRVs and hypersonic glide vehicle capability (HGV). This means Russia has the ability to launch a single ICBM that can achieve nuclear strikes on 15 U.S. cities all at once, with little to no risk of interdiction by US defensive forces. However, an open-air nuclear strike in the northern hemisphere would contaminate the entire hemisphere with radioactive fallout. From Russia's point of view, a “safer” option is to detonate a high-altitude EMP weapon that destroys the US power grid and plunges the United States into chaos and collapse. This sort of EMP strike would utterly disable America's military supply chain while achieving something on the order of 90% civilian casualties within 1-2 years, according to previous government analysis reports. Surely Russia knows that America's power grid is not yet hardened against EMP, and that America's financial system, food stamps, communications, fuel deliveries and nearly everything else depends on the power grid functioning. Thus, an EMP strike is the most efficient way for Russia to disable America and possibly collapse the nation during a time of war. Once you realize this, you also realize that EMP weapons might also be used against NATO nations such as the United Kingdom. An EMP strike against London — or Paris, or Berlin — would plunge the entire nation into darkness and collapse. Thus, we believe that EMP weapons will be the first strike weapon preferred by Russia in retaliation against NATO and US forces striking infrastructure targets inside Russia (should that occur). We pray this never takes place, but it looks like Biden and his insane handlers are deliberately pushing the United States into this scenario... (Or maybe it's supposed to look like this in a fake WW3 scenario. Remember I have said that the Alliance plans a fake WW3 but the DS wants to turn it into a real WW3 and they are professional at this.) (In the original article here was a speculative timeline of the escalation of a real war. The bad thing about time lines and speculation is that when one domino falls the rest are all fallen.)  Remember: The (DS?) Pentagon is run by generals who hate the American flag and everything America stands for. Do you think the forces they control are going to be ready to fight for America and win World War III? Not by a long shot. The lib-tards all hate America and want to see it fail. Say what you want about Putin, but Putin doesn't hate Russia. He's not trying to dismantle the Russian culture. And he's not a sissy pants soy boy, either. Unlike Biden, Putin is a cognitive genius, and he is right now out-maneuvering the incompetent, almost mentally retarded US “President” and his entire regime of America-hating lunatics and sociopaths.   The Significance of the Number 68 Sent by Deb Horton on 4/19/22 Excerpt from What Does it Mean: More and more scholars estimate that the possibility of the outbreak of World War III is increasing, and have even concluded that this could lead to a nuclear war.  The situation is moving in the direction of global disaster.  Putin cannot tolerate failure, and Biden is unwilling to give up, which could compel Russia to use nuclear weapons. There's a grim mathematical problem popular in cyberspace: In American rendering, the sum of every two digits of the starting dates of World War I (07/28/1914), World War II (09/01/1939) and the Russia-Ukraine conflict (02/24/2022) are the same. World War I: 7+28+1914=1949 and 19+49=68 World War II: 9+1+1939=1949 and 19+49=68 Russia-Ukraine Conflict: 2+24+2022= 2048 and 20+48=68  (Since WW1 and WW2 adds up to 68 and then Russia/Ukraine war adds up to 68 could this means that this is the beginning of WW3?) This is just a great coincidence, but it serves as a reminder to compare the dangerous evolution of the Russian-Ukraine conflict with the two worst wars in human history. (There are no coincidences with a sovereign God.) Looking back, tragedies often come from five sources: War, famine, economic crisis, pandemic, and climate disaster. In spring 2022, people didn't expect that they would be experiencing these five aspects in an unprecedented convergence. (The world may be on the eve of its most dangerous moment.) Psalm 68 begins "Let God arise, let his enemies be scattered; Let them also that hate him flee before him." (At this particular time 5/5/22, the Russians have pretty well conquered Ukraine. They have destroyed the weapons that the D.S. had sent to defend Ukraine. There isn't much left of the ground war.  A loose nuke could come from a desperate D.S. hitting Russia to provoke the Russians into WW3…) (Operation Disclosure note: Wed. May 4 - Orange Man (President Trump): Russia wanted (the Russia/Ukraine War) to finish by May 6. Well 2 days ahead. May the Fourth [a play on words] (Force be with you). Same Day Nazi's in WW2 Surrendered. We are on a Loop. [meaning: History repeats] White Hats are in control. (We hope so)) Bill's Dream below of multiple Nuke strikes on America could be a confirmation of Garretts revelation above. Bill's nuke dream could be about what cities could be retaliated upon.  If Russia is hit, Putin knows the average American is not his enemy, the DS has always been his enemy. When he retaliates I believe it would be against the sin cities which are also the crime strongholds, DS strongholds, Democratic Strongholds. Thats why we saw in Bills dream below them getting nuked. I asked the Lord should we tell God's people to get out of these cities and got a YES. Here is a teaching we gave on this years ago: Flee the Sin Cities? (1)   Flee the Sin Cities? (2)   Bride Protected as the Wicked are Nuked Bill Steenland - 4/23/22 (David's notes in red) I dreamed I was in my kitchen preparing dinner. (Representing the preparation of the spiritual food to feed God's elect.) I was suddenly translated to a place in the mountains. (This represents the choosing of the Bride by bringing Her to Mt. Zion which is a place of safety from the Beast?) Although I was incredibly surprised about the miracle, I knew why the Lord had done it. I had a horrible feeling and immediately started searching the skies. I said to myself, “Oh my God! This is it and it must have started!”  There was a light orange flash way way off in the distance. (The people to be judged will be spiritually far from Zion and the presence of God.)  I saw the top of a mushroom cloud. The Lord was letting me know nuclear weapons were going off in a distance that I couldn't physically see. (I asked if we should pray this down by faith and got a "NO.” When I forwarded this dream to Eve, she cast lots asking the Lord if we can pray this down? And she received 3 Tails for “NO”. Father has changed His mind before through repentance and a cry for mercy. Eze 3:21  Nevertheless if thou warn the righteous man, that the righteous sin not, and he doth not sin, he shall surely live, because he took warning; and thou hast delivered thy soul. I asked the Lord, “Are we going to have a nuclear war? And got a “NO.” In Garretts dream it was “one and done” meaning it was not a war but a single missile exchange with possibly multiple warheads. Has God planned to chasten the U.S. in spite of their silly thousand years of peace on a wicked nation?) I asked, "Is this the D.S. cities being destroyed?" And got “Yes”.)   As in a nuclear attack there will be desolation, waste, and astonishment as the Lord said in Eze 35:2-4  Son of man, set thy face against mount Seir (The leadership of the Edomites who are Esau's seed who persecuted and betrayed their brother Israel.), and prophesy against it, 3  and say unto it, Thus saith the Lord Jehovah: Behold, I am against thee, O mount Seir, and I will stretch out my hand against thee, and I will make thee a desolation and an astonishment.  4  I will lay thy cities [or congregations] waste, and thou shalt be desolate; and thou shalt know that I am Jehovah.)  Little mushroom clouds appeared in the background and stuck in the sky as if it was some computer program that pinned the location of the blasts in the distance. As I moved around the symbols would stay in their places. There were many many of these nukes going off.  I continued to walk up this hill to an abandoned house with no windows or doors. It was made of concrete and looked like the place the Lord was sending me to hide. (Representing the refuge that God has prepared for His people to be hidden in the Rock. Their freedom to come and go is unhindered by doors.) The house had a bunch of silver everywhere. (The Lord will supply for the financial and physical needs of His people in the times ahead. Some say ultimately silver will be more valuable than gold.) I thought I could barter using them, so I started to break them apart and put them in a backpack. It struck me odd that whoever was there previously didn't see the value in the silver. (Because escaping is overwhelmingly more important.) Then I looked out of the little concrete building and there was a massive food processing plant nearby. I remember almost laughing because the Lord had put me right next to a food processing plant. I thought, “Oh wow! That's that! Thank you God!” (Food and money will be plentiful among the Bride as the Lord spoke. Isa 61:5-8  And strangers shall stand and feed your flocks, and foreigners shall be your plowmen and your vine-dressers.  6  But ye shall be named the priests of Jehovah; men shall call you the ministers of our God: ye shall eat the wealth of the nations, and in their glory shall ye boast yourselves.  7  Instead of your shame ye shall have double; and instead of dishonor they shall rejoice in their portion: therefore in their land they shall possess double; everlasting joy shall be unto them.  8  For I, Jehovah, love justice, I hate robbery [the factions have stolen from their brethren] with iniquity; and I will give them their recompense in truth (God will re-pay), and I will make an everlasting covenant with them.) I asked, "Will this devastation come after the redistribution of wealth planned in the GCR ?” And received a “Yes.”  Eve asked for a confirming word for this and received, Psa.81:5 (in context 5-7) He appointed it in Joseph for a testimony, When he went out over the land of Egypt, Where I heard a language that I knew not. 6 I removed his shoulder from the burden: His hands were freed from the basket. 7 Thou calledst in trouble, and I delivered thee; I answered thee in the secret place of thunder; I proved thee at the waters of Meribah. Selah As the dream changed I was still in the house but was talking to a woman dressed in camouflage. (The Bride is hidden in the "secret place of the Most High.") She was explaining to me where we were in the mountains. She told me the state the mountain range and the roadway. I can't remember what it was but I knew it was somewhat iconic, well known and popular for mountain travel. There was a Native American word she told me and I remember thinking, "I need to look that up and find the meaning." but I cannot remember the name. I knew more people were coming; some of them good and some of them bad. (Many will come and be saved in the revival.) Then I woke up.  Eve asked for a word by faith at random for Bill's dream and received: Eze.21:28-32  And thou, son of man, prophesy, and say, Thus saith the Lord Jehovah concerning the children of Ammon, and concerning their reproach; and say thou, A sword, a sword is drawn, for the slaughter it is furbished, to cause it to devour, that it may be as lightning; (I asked is this representing a swift taking down of those who factioned against their own kinsman?  And got “Yes.” This could be so called Americans against Americans and so called Christians against their brothers.) 29 while they see for thee false visions, while they divine lies unto thee, to lay thee upon the necks of the wicked that are deadly wounded, whose day is come in the time of the iniquity of the end. 30 Cause it to return into its sheath. In the place where thou wast created, in the land of thy birth, will I judge thee. 31 And I will pour out mine indignation upon thee; I will blow upon thee with the fire of my wrath; and I will deliver thee into the hand of brutish men, skilfull to destroy. 32 Thou shalt be for fuel to the fire; thy blood shall be in the midst of the land; thou shalt be no more remembered: for I, Jehovah, have spoken it.    Five Major U.S. Cities Nuked Richard Swanson Author of the book Spare Your People In 1971, I saw, in a dream, limited nuclear war in America. (Or one missile with multiple warheads) I beheld two or three short successive orange-colored flashes of light off in the distance towards the north. These flashes, which produced a strobe-light effect, literally lit up the nighttime sky.  As they occurred I could briefly see the outline of some mountains from beyond which the flashes came.  The next morning - in the dream - as I was walking through a field of swamp grass, I heard a news report over a transistor radio which was attached to a corner pole of a lean-to. The news report said: "Washington, D.C., New York City, Chicago, Denver and San Francisco have been struck by thermonuclear warheads”. (D.S. strongholds) By the time the broadcast said "Denver" I was in the Spirit. I was standing beside Jesus. I then realized it was Jesus Who was giving the news report, and what I was hearing over the transistor radio was the Word of God. As He spoke, His words could be heard throughout eternity.  As Jesus said "Denver," He pointed there, and as He did, the Holy Spirit showed me, though it was not quite dawn, exactly where Denver was. It was still night in San Francisco, yet the Holy Spirit showed me where that city was too. I then looked back toward the East Coast. The sun had already risen there and through some cirrocumulus clouds, I could see the Florida area. I suddenly realized I was up in the heavens looking down.  I also knew that during this limited nuclear attack I would be in Florida, very close to the Alabama border. Several years later I discovered that this part of Florida is indeed swampland, just as in the dream God's Protection from Weapons of Mass Destruction David Eells There is a place of safety in Christ for our body as well as our soul. Observe the following verses: Psa.91:1 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. 2 I will say of Jehovah, He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in whom I trust. 3 For he will deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, And from the deadly pestilence. 4 He will cover thee with his pinions, And under his wings shalt thou take refuge: His is a truth shield and a buckler. 5 Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night, Nor for the arrow that flieth by day; 6 For the pestilence that walketh in darkness, Nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday. 7 A thousand shall fall at thy side, And ten thousand at thy right hand; But it shall not come nigh thee. 8 Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold, And see the reward of the wicked. 9 For thou, O Jehovah, art my refuge! Thou hast made the Most High thy habitation; 10 There shall no evil befall thee, Neither shall any plague come nigh thy tent. 11 For he will give his angels charge over thee, To keep thee in all thy ways. 12 They shall bear thee up in their hands, Lest thou dash thy foot against a stone. 13 Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: The young lion and the serpent shalt thou trample under foot. 14 Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name. 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. 16 With long life will I satisfy him, And show him my salvation. An examination of verses 1 and 9 will bring us to the conclusion that God is our Secret Place. Psa.91:1 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty... 9 For thou, O Jehovah, art my refuge! Thou hast made the Most High thy habitation;.  We must be "hidden with Christ in God”. 1 Jn 2:24 says "As for you, let that abide in you which ye heard from the beginning. If that which ye heard from the beginning abide in you, ye also shall abide in the Son, and in the Father". In other words we must believe what Jesus and the Apostles gave to us in the beginning, in order to be in the secret place .  The traditions of men will not save. Paul said in (2 Ti 4:18) The Lord will deliver me from every evil work.  He also said that Jesus bore the curse so that we would be blessed (Gal.3:13,14). He also said, we were delivered out of the power of darkness (Col.1:13). Do you believe it? Then in that point you are hidden in Christ. Also the walk of the rebellious will not save. 1 Joh 2:5,6 ...Hereby we know that we are in him: he that saith he abideth in him ought himself also to walk even as he walked. An important key to entering the secret place is seen here in Psa. 91:2  I will say of Jehovah, He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in whom I trust.  Verse 9 says, For thou, O Jehovah, art my refuge! Thou hast made the Most High thy habitation; (Notice! If we say he is our refuge, He becomes our habitation.)  Rom.10:10 says ,for with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. Confess is the Greek word homo-logeo, which means to "speak the same as". We must say what God says. To not say what God says is not to confess him before men. Mt.10:32-33 says ,Every one therefore who shall confess me before men, him will I also confess before my Father who is in heaven. 33 But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father who is in heaven. To deny what the Lord says before men is to not be justified before the Father in that point. Rom.3:4 God forbid: yea, let God be found true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified (accounted righteous) in thy words, And mightest prevail when thou comest into judgment. You must be called righteous by God through your confession or you will not escape judgment. Notice! In Psa. 91 confession brought protection to the body. Here is a good example of this confession in a dream given to Anette Rich in February 1994: I did not want to get up, but the Spirit of the Lord would not let me stay in bed, and urged me to get up and write down this dream: There was an order given that everyone was to register. All people with degrees and knowledge had to declare these facts. We then had to be sure our homes were airtight around the doors and windows. Then we had to go rally at an open air stadium. There were many, many people. All of a sudden I started to say, "Make it short. Make it short". Others joined in and this saying became a throng. I needed to get out of there, and started to make comments such as, "I am God's child, the air is purified around me. The angels of the Lord are around me. The Blood of Jesus saves me."  I had other people around me and many behind me, some I knew, others I did not. Birds fell straight out of the sky, dead. People fell dead and many were getting weak as we marched straight on. I kept repeating the above sayings. Here and there someone said, "I can't do it anymore!" I kept walking and said, "That is not a worthy statement of a child of God! Repeat what I say"... and then I would repeat the above and other scriptures. I was urged from within to keep my eyes straight ahead and not upon death. I urged others to do the same. There was a white film over everything and it was coming down. It covered trees and was almost illuminative. It also felt like it was giving health, strength, and light, and helped us to walk ahead. I can think of several times in the past that I have been told by a parent that they could not come to the assembly because one or more or their children had measles, chicken pox, or mumps. I have told these parents to bring their children because no one in the assembly would catch the disease. I have never been disappointed after making a bold confession of faith in God! When one of my own 5 children caught one of these diseases, unrelated to the above instances, we would always rebuke it and command it to go in Jesus' name and it would. My children have never had more that a very light case of these diseases and most have never had them at all. We are promised protection from the deadly pestilence in Psa. 91:3,5,6 For he will deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, And from the deadly pestilence. Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night, Nor for the arrow that flieth by day; For the pestilence that walketh in darkness, Nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday. The Hebrew word pestilence here means an epidemic disease. However in verse 10 the word plague which we would normally equate with pestilence is not at all restricted to an epidemic. The Hebrew word plague just means a blow, or to smite. Verse 10 says, "There shall no evil befall thee, Neither shall any plague come nigh thy tent". Notice in this verse that if we are in the Secret Place, we are not under the plagues or judgments of God.  This is witnessed also in Exo. 12:13  And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and there shall no plague be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt. In this text the blood of the lamb (Jesus) delivers us from all plagues. The judgments that God brought upon Egypt were all called plagues in Exo 9:14, 11:1. There were conditions for this wonderful benefit. Notice verses 9,10  Eat not of it raw, nor boiled at all with water, but roast with fire; its head with its legs and with the inwards thereof. And ye shall let nothing of it remain until the morning; but that which remaineth of it until the morning ye shall burn with fire. In other words we should partake of all of the lamb, who is Jesus, the Word. That includes all of His head, which is His mind, doctrine, and thinking. That includes all of His legs, which is His walk. For to be in Him we must walk as He walked (I Joh 2:3-6).  Heb 10:26 says  For if we sin willfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more a sacrifice for sins, but a certain fearful expectation of judgment, and a fierceness of fire which shall devour the adversaries. You should see here that the sacrifice will not protect those walking in rebellion, only those in ignorance or failure. When David sinned with Bathsheba the Lord "put away his sin" when he repented "but the sword did not depart from his house". In other words the sacrifice would not protect him from the penalty of his sin. All of the Lamb also includes all of His inwards, which is the inner man of the heart who is filled with His Spirit in Eph. 3:16,17. To sum this up, for the Christian to receive deliverance from the plagues, he should believe in this doctrine, walk as a Biblical disciple, and receive God's Spirit, and not a religious Spirit as in 2 Co. 11:4. Another main condition, which is closely related to the last, is in Exo. 12:7 And they shall take of the blood, and put it on the two side-posts and on the lintel, upon the houses wherein they shall eat it. First you should see that the Israelites were the ones who applied the blood. I Joh. 1:7 but if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanseth us from all sin. The light here is the word of God. So the blood cleanses us through walking (by partaking of the legs of the Lamb) in the Word. 2Co. 7:1 Having therefore these promises, (Word) beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all defilement of flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God. You see, the cleansing of the blood is applied through the Word. In John 2:1-11, Jesus did his first "sign". He had the servants (representing ministers) fill the 6 (Representing man's number) clay (Representing man's nature) pots (or vessels) with water (Representing the Word in Eph. 5:26). Then He turned it into wine (representing the blood of Jesus in Mat.26:27,28).  Why is it that many of God's people do not escape the plagues of this world? Rebellion and unbelief against the light of the Word! Hosea 4:6 says My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: (the Word) because thou hast rejected knowledge, (the Word) I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I also will forget thy children. We are in a battle for our lives against the principalities and powers in Eph.6:12, and most of God's people refuse to put on the armor of God in verses 13-17. Notice the armor must be put on by you, by faith in the Word of God. Otherwise the forces of darkness will take you out!! The Devil is a good lawyer, he knows the Word, which gives him his rights. Know the Word so you can stand on your rights, the blood of the Lamb. Vision given to Dumitru Duduman that describes our rights in Christ and how the blood is applied: Oregon, May 7, 1993. It was getting dark. Then suddenly it turned pitch black! It was as if the whole world had gone dark at that moment (We are on the verge of this darkness-- Tribulation). All the people were in a frenzy! They became disoriented, and some were even screaming. After some time we heard the sound of an army approaching. Soon we saw them coming out of the black mist. All were dressed in black except one. That one seemed to be their leader. He was dressed in a red robe with a thick black belt over his waist. On his head he had a sign. As I looked, I saw that in his hand he held the same kind of sharp spear as everyone else in his army. "I am Lucifer!" he exclaimed. "I am the king of this world! I have come to make war against the Christians!”  It looked as though all the Christians were huddled together in one big group. Some began to cry when they heard this. Others began to tremble, while some just stood without saying anything. Lucifer continued to speak. "All of those that want to fight against my army and think they can be victorious, go to the right. Those that fear me, go to the left". Only about a quarter of the group stepped to the right. All the others went to the left. Then Lucifer ordered his army, "Destroy those on the right!" The army began to advance and quickly surrounded the Christians on the right. As they began to close in on us, a powerful light appeared and encircled us. Then an angel of the Lord spoke. "Take out your swords and fight. Defend yourselves and be victorious over the enemy". "What swords?" a man in the group asked. "The Word of the Lord is your sword", the angel answered. When we understood what the angel meant, we began to quote verses from the Bible.  Then suddenly as if we were one voice, we began to sing a song. Our voices thundered so loudly that the dark army began to retreat in fear. They did not have the courage to come against us anymore.  Lucifer, filled with rage, turned to those on the left. "You who all of your life have been trying to please two masters, because you could not stand against me, I have the power to destroy you". He then ordered his army to attack. It was a total massacre. The ones on the left could not defend themselves. One by one they all fell. This killing seemed to go on for a long time. After a while we could actually smell the stench of the dead. Someone asked, "Why could they not be protected also?"  The angel answered, "Because all of their lives they have been lukewarm. Because of their hypocrisy the true church has been blasphemed. They have brought disrespect to the Word of God. They were not clean”.  As we continued to look, we saw the sun coming over the horizon. The black clouds began to break up. Then they disappeared. Only one cloud was left, on which Lucifer and his army stood. Lucifer looked at me shaking his fists and said, "I will destroy you even if I have to throw my spear at you from here!" Then that cloud disappeared, too. As I looked around, I began to see faces that I recognized among our group. I saw a pastor from Belflower, another from Indiana, one from Michigan, as well as many of my American friends. The first thought that came to my mind as I awoke was that this had been the last fight of the devil against the church. If we remain faithful, we will be victorious. Another condition is seen in Exo. 12:22,23 And ye shall take a bunch of hyssop, and dip it in the blood that is in the basin, and strike the lintel and the two side-posts with the blood that is in the basin; and none of you shall go out of the door of his house until the morning. 23 For Jehovah will pass through to smite the Egyptians; and when he seeth the blood upon the lintel, and on the two side-posts, Jehovah will pass over the door, and will not suffer the destroyer to come in unto your houses to smite you. As a Christian you should see here that you must abide in your house, which is Jesus, the Word. If you abide in Jesus, you abide in fruit and eternal life as in Joh 15:1-8, I Jn.5:11. The destroyer cannot come past the blood on the door posts to smite you. As you can see, all of these conditions are actually one. Walk by faith in the Lord as your Savior in all things and grow in the light of His Word to know your rights. The devil is a good lawyer, He knows his rights. If you add to or subtract from the Word with your own thinking, he can afflict you as said in Rev.22:18,19. Another condition is seen in Exo. 12:15 Seven days shall ye eat unleavened bread; even the first day ye shall put away leaven out of your houses: for whosoever eateth leavened bread from the first day until the seventh day, that soul shall be cut off from Israel. The unleavened bread here is purity in doctrine or the Word. Jesus said in Mat. 16:11 to beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees (the religious leaders of today too). In verse 12 they understood the leaven was their teaching.  Also Paul exhorted us in I Co. 5:6-8 to keep the feast of unleavened bread by casting out the leaven of malice and wickedness. Here He said the unleavened bread was sincerity and truth. Back in Exo 12:15 we see that there should be no leaven in our house (or body) for seven days. The seventh day was the day of ceasing from our works to enter the rest. So keep the truth in your house until you cease from your works and rest in Christ or you will be "cut off" from Israel. The Lord spoke to me when I was writing an article for our website. He gave me a long list of miracles He was going to perform in order to save some of His people because He said, "they are not under the curse". One thing He said was that He was going to translate (not to heaven) some of His people right out of the middle of nuclear blasts in order to preserve them. I can assure you that these are not Christians in the secret place who do not believe this is their covenant right. Jesus said "be it unto you according to your faith" and "as you have believed so shall it be unto you". Remember, He could not do many mighty works because of their unbelief. Preserved Through a Nuke: Gaylene Wolmack I would like to share with you a quick vision the Lord gave me about a year ago. I was reading about the coming bombing of the U.S. and as I sat down in my rocker to look out my big picture window to reflect about this with the Lord, all of a sudden a laughter came forth from way down inside. I asked the Lord what was so funny about the U.S. being bombed. He then showed me a quick vision of Phoenix being bombed (I perceived it didn't matter what city) and in the midst of that there were people walking around just fine. I then saw the enemy watching via satellite and was horrified to see people walking around in the midst of what I perceived to be a nuclear bombing. The Lord is our High Tower and our Refuge and our Fortress! Jer 18:7,8 says "At what instant I shall speak concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to pluck up and to break down and to destroy it; if that nation, concerning which I have spoken, turn from their evil, I will repent of the evil that I thought to do unto them. This is also what we see in Joel 2:12,13. Gods people in America must repent. The nation exists only for our sake. At what time the people of God become bad for America and America becomes bad for the people of God there must be a separation. Egypt must fall and Israel must come out!  Gods people are in bondage to an evil Babylonish religious system that has more affinity for the world than the kingdom as in Rev 18:45. There must be judgment on the system to bring them out as in Jer 50:3-12. If there is no spiritual separation, which is sanctification or holiness, there must be physical separation by the judgment of the wicked. Without ten righteous in Sodom, it is doomed as in Gen 18:32. (Isa 26:9,10)...For when thy judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world learn righteousness. Let favor be showed to the wicked, yet will he not learn righteousness: in the land of uprightness will he deal wrongfully, and will not behold the majesty of the Lord. Favor given to the unrepentant destroys them.  Judgment is also God's mercy. Angels took Lot's family by the hand and led them out of Sodom. He "escaped" to a "little city" of refuge called Zoar.  (Heb 2:3) How shall we escape if we neglect so great a salvation? (Luk 1:36) But watch ye at every season, making supplication, that ye may prevail to escape all these things that shall come to pass... . (Rom 2:3) And reckonest thou this, o man, who judges them that practice such things, and doest the same, that thou shalt escape the judgment of God? The "little city” Lot escaped to reminds me of the "little white church" that escaped the holocaust and the invading army in "Tremble Ye Women”?  Disciples of Christ who are living the crucified life will escape the coming judgment. One method God will use is to protect a few cities from the destroyer as Goshen was protected when Egypt was destroyed in Exo. 8:21-24.  The Flies here symbolize demons for Satan is lord of the flies in Exo.14:29,30 / 11:4-7 / 12:23.  Cities of refuge were provided to protect the manslayer, who killed someone "unwittingly" (not with their own knowledge or wisdom) from the "avenger of blood” in Num 35:11,12 / Josh 20 / Deu 19. The avenger of blood was usually a relative or close friend of the deceased. A disciple of Christ is one who by the wisdom of Christ puts to death his old man (manslayer), and is therefore not guilty. The avenger, the wicked, is a relative and friend of the old man. They are both born of flesh.  The avengers of this world hate and seek to put to death those who have put to death self. Satan and his army are coming to avenge the blood of the old man. (For Example: Pharaoh's army, Assyrian army, Mat 24:8-14, or Dumitru's dreams "The Black Bird" and "The Black Army") Spiritually speaking if you are caught outside the city of refuge the avenger of blood may put you to death (Num 35:26-28 / Ex 12:22 / Gen 19:21 / 2Kings 18:13 / 19:30-34 / Jn 15:4-6). After the death of the high priest in Num 35: 28, who is Christ, has been manifest in our life by the crucified life in 1Co 2:2 / Exo 12:5-9 / Php 3:10-15, we may go where God wills and be safe (Num 15:28 / Jn 7:30 / Lk 4:29,30 / Acts 12:11 / Psa 91). Some will not die for we have come to the end of the sixth day (Mat 16:28-17:2 For him who has ears).  The wicked in the U.S. are also manslayers for they have put to death their spiritual man. They are guilty and they will die for they did it wittingly (following their own wisdom). God is an avenger (Rom 12:19 / Exo 11:4 / 12:12,29) against those who don't walk in and out under the blood (Exo 12:7 - Deu 28:6,19 /1Jn 1:7) and eat all the flesh of the Lamb (Exo 12:8, Joh 1:29 6:53, Jesus is the word made flesh) (Exo 12:10 / 16:19,4 / Jn 6:32-35)  Though it is in the Word some do not accept divine healing and protection. 1 Pe 2:24 / Luk 10:19 Jesus said "be it unto you according to your faith".) Our faith must be in unleavened bread, which means according to the Word in teaching - Mat 16:6,11,12, in attitude - Luk 12:1, in actions -1 Co 5:6-8). To eat the unleavened bread is to consume the pure Word till it becomes a part of you as food does. The traditions of men have no power to bear the fruit of Christ (Mat 13:23). They add to, and take away from the word and are cursed (Rev 22:18,19).   Select LanguageAfrikaansAlbanianAmharicArabicArmenianAzerbaijaniBasqueBelarusianBengaliBosnianBulgarianCatalanCebuanoChichewaChinese (Simplified)Chinese (Traditional)CorsicanCroatianCzechDanishDutchEsperantoEstonianFilipinoFinnishFrenchFrisianGalicianGeorgianGermanGreekGujaratiHaitian CreoleHausaHawaiianHebrewHindiHmongHungarianIcelandicIgboIndonesianIrishItalianJapaneseJavaneseKannadaKazakhKhmerKinyarwandaKoreanKurdish (Kurmanji)KyrgyzLaoLatinLatvianLithuanianLuxembourgishMacedonianMalagasyMalayMalayalamMalteseMaoriMarathiMongolianMyanmar (Burmese)NepaliNorwegianOdia (Oriya)PashtoPersianPolishPortuguesePunjabiRomanianRussianSamoanScots GaelicSerbianSesothoShonaSindhiSinhalaSlovakSlovenianSomaliSpanishSundaneseSwahiliSwedishTajikTamilTatarTeluguThaiTurkishTurkmenUkrainianUrduUyghurUzbekVietnameseWelshXhosaYiddishYorubaZulu Powered by Translate Printer-friendly version

Old Testament: Ruth 1 Ruth 1 (Listen) Naomi Widowed 1 In the days when the judges ruled there was a famine in the land, and a man of Bethlehem in Judah went to sojourn in the country of Moab, he and his wife and his two sons. 2 The name of the man was Elimelech and the name of his wife Naomi, and the names of his two sons were Mahlon and Chilion. They were Ephrathites from Bethlehem in Judah. They went into the country of Moab and remained there. 3 But Elimelech, the husband of Naomi, died, and she was left with her two sons. 4 These took Moabite wives; the name of the one was Orpah and the name of the other Ruth. They lived there about ten years, 5 and both Mahlon and Chilion died, so that the woman was left without her two sons and her husband. Ruth's Loyalty to Naomi 6 Then she arose with her daughters-in-law to return from the country of Moab, for she had heard in the fields of Moab that the LORD had visited his people and given them food. 7 So she set out from the place where she was with her two daughters-in-law, and they went on the way to return to the land of Judah. 8 But Naomi said to her two daughters-in-law, “Go, return each of you to her mother's house. May the LORD deal kindly with you, as you have dealt with the dead and with me. 9 The LORD grant that you may find rest, each of you in the house of her husband!” Then she kissed them, and they lifted up their voices and wept. 10 And they said to her, “No, we will return with you to your people.” 11 But Naomi said, “Turn back, my daughters; why will you go with me? Have I yet sons in my womb that they may become your husbands? 12 Turn back, my daughters; go your way, for I am too old to have a husband. If I should say I have hope, even if I should have a husband this night and should bear sons, 13 would you therefore wait till they were grown? Would you therefore refrain from marrying? No, my daughters, for it is exceedingly bitter to me for your sake that the hand of the LORD has gone out against me.” 14 Then they lifted up their voices and wept again. And Orpah kissed her mother-in-law, but Ruth clung to her. 15 And she said, “See, your sister-in-law has gone back to her people and to her gods; return after your sister-in-law.” 16 But Ruth said, “Do not urge me to leave you or to return from following you. For where you go I will go, and where you lodge I will lodge. Your people shall be my people, and your God my God. 17 Where you die I will die, and there will I be buried. May the LORD do so to me and more also if anything but death parts me from you.” 18 And when Naomi saw that she was determined to go with her, she said no more. Naomi and Ruth Return 19 So the two of them went on until they came to Bethlehem. And when they came to Bethlehem, the whole town was stirred because of them. And the women said, “Is this Naomi?” 20 She said to them, “Do not call me Naomi;1 call me Mara,2 for the Almighty has dealt very bitterly with me. 21 I went away full, and the LORD has brought me back empty. Why call me Naomi, when the LORD has testified against me and the Almighty has brought calamity upon me?” 22 So Naomi returned, and Ruth the Moabite her daughter-in-law with her, who returned from the country of Moab.

Footnotes [1] 116:10 Or believed, indeed; Septuagint believed, therefore (ESV) New Testament: 1 Corinthians 10 1 Corinthians 10 (Listen) Warning Against Idolatry 10 For I do not want you to be unaware, brothers,1 that our fathers were all under the cloud, and all passed through the sea, 2 and all were baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea, 3 and all ate the same spiritual food, 4 and all drank the same spiritual drink. For they drank from the spiritual Rock that followed them, and the Rock was Christ. 5 Nevertheless, with most of them God was not pleased, for they were overthrown2 in the wilderness. 6 Now these things took place as examples for us, that we might not desire evil as they did. 7 Do not be idolaters as some of them were; as it is written, “The people sat down to eat and drink and rose up to play.” 8 We must not indulge in sexual immorality as some of them did, and twenty-three thousand fell in a single day. 9 We must not put Christ3 to the test, as some of them did and were destroyed by serpents, 10 nor grumble, as some of them did and were destroyed by the Destroyer. 11 Now these things happened to them as an example, but they were written down for our instruction, on whom the end of the ages has come. 12 Therefore let anyone who thinks that he stands take heed lest he fall. 13 No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it. 14 Therefore, my beloved, flee from idolatry. 15 I speak as to sensible people; judge for yourselves what I say. 16 The cup of blessing that we bless, is it not a participation in the blood of Christ? The bread that we break, is it not a participation in the body of Christ? 17 Because there is one bread, we who are many are one body, for we all partake of the one bread. 18 Consider the people of Israel:4 are not those who eat the sacrifices participants in the altar? 19 What do I imply then? That food offered to idols is anything, or that an idol is anything? 20 No, I imply that what pagans sacrifice they offer to demons and not to God. I do not want you to be participants with demons. 21 You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons. You cannot partake of the table of the Lord and the table of demons. 22 Shall we provoke the Lord to jealousy? Are we stronger than he? Do All to the Glory of God 23 “All things are lawful,” but not all things are helpful. “All things are lawful,” but not all things build up. 24 Let no one seek his own good, but the good of his neighbor. 25 Eat whatever is sold in the meat market without raising any question on the ground of conscience. 26 For “the earth is the Lord's, and the fullness thereof.” 27 If one of the unbelievers invites you to dinner and you are disposed to go, eat whatever is set before you without raising any question on the ground of conscience. 28 But if someone says to you, “This has been offered in sacrifice,” then do not eat it, for the sake of the one who informed you, and for the sake of conscience—29 I do not mean your conscience, but his. For why should my liberty be determined by someone else's conscience? 30 If I partake with thankfulness, why am I denounced because of that for which I give thanks? 31 So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God. 32 Give no offense to Jews or to Greeks or to the church of God, 33 just as I try to please everyone in everything I do, not seeking my own advantage, but that of many, that they may be saved.

Job 24–28 Job 24–28 (Listen) 24   “Why are not times of judgment kept by the Almighty,    and why do those who know him never see his days?2   Some move landmarks;    they seize flocks and pasture them.3   They drive away the donkey of the fatherless;    they take the widow's ox for a pledge.4   They thrust the poor off the road;    the poor of the earth all hide themselves.5   Behold, like wild donkeys in the desert    the poor1 go out to their toil, seeking game;    the wasteland yields food for their children.6   They gather their2 fodder in the field,    and they glean the vineyard of the wicked man.7   They lie all night naked, without clothing,    and have no covering in the cold.8   They are wet with the rain of the mountains    and cling to the rock for lack of shelter.9   (There are those who snatch the fatherless child from the breast,    and they take a pledge against the poor.)10   They go about naked, without clothing;    hungry, they carry the sheaves;11   among the olive rows of the wicked3 they make oil;    they tread the winepresses, but suffer thirst.12   From out of the city the dying4 groan,    and the soul of the wounded cries for help;    yet God charges no one with wrong. 13   “There are those who rebel against the light,    who are not acquainted with its ways,    and do not stay in its paths.14   The murderer rises before it is light,    that he may kill the poor and needy,    and in the night he is like a thief.15   The eye of the adulterer also waits for the twilight,    saying, ‘No eye will see me';    and he veils his face.16   In the dark they dig through houses;    by day they shut themselves up;    they do not know the light.17   For deep darkness is morning to all of them;    for they are friends with the terrors of deep darkness. 18   “You say, ‘Swift are they on the face of the waters;    their portion is cursed in the land;    no treader turns toward their vineyards.19   Drought and heat snatch away the snow waters;    so does Sheol those who have sinned.20   The womb forgets them;    the worm finds them sweet;  they are no longer remembered,    so wickedness is broken like a tree.' 21   “They wrong the barren, childless woman,    and do no good to the widow.22   Yet God5 prolongs the life of the mighty by his power;    they rise up when they despair of life.23   He gives them security, and they are supported,    and his eyes are upon their ways.24   They are exalted a little while, and then are gone;    they are brought low and gathered up like all others;    they are cut off like the heads of grain.25   If it is not so, who will prove me a liar    and show that there is nothing in what I say?” Bildad Speaks: Man Cannot Be Righteous 25 Then Bildad the Shuhite answered and said: 2   “Dominion and fear are with God;6    he makes peace in his high heaven.3   Is there any number to his armies?    Upon whom does his light not arise?4   How then can man be in the right before God?    How can he who is born of woman be pure?5   Behold, even the moon is not bright,    and the stars are not pure in his eyes;6   how much less man, who is a maggot,    and the son of man, who is a worm!” Job Replies: God's Majesty Is Unsearchable 26 Then Job answered and said: 2   “How you have helped him who has no power!    How you have saved the arm that has no strength!3   How you have counseled him who has no wisdom,    and plentifully declared sound knowledge!4   With whose help have you uttered words,    and whose breath has come out from you?5   The dead tremble    under the waters and their inhabitants.6   Sheol is naked before God,7    and Abaddon has no covering.7   He stretches out the north over the void    and hangs the earth on nothing.8   He binds up the waters in his thick clouds,    and the cloud is not split open under them.9   He covers the face of the full moon8    and spreads over it his cloud.10   He has inscribed a circle on the face of the waters    at the boundary between light and darkness.11   The pillars of heaven tremble    and are astounded at his rebuke.12   By his power he stilled the sea;    by his understanding he shattered Rahab.13   By his wind the heavens were made fair;    his hand pierced the fleeing serpent.14   Behold, these are but the outskirts of his ways,    and how small a whisper do we hear of him!    But the thunder of his power who can understand?” Job Continues: I Will Maintain My Integrity 27 And Job again took up his discourse, and said: 2   “As God lives, who has taken away my right,    and the Almighty, who has made my soul bitter,3   as long as my breath is in me,    and the spirit of God is in my nostrils,4   my lips will not speak falsehood,    and my tongue will not utter deceit.5   Far be it from me to say that you are right;    till I die I will not put away my integrity from me.6   I hold fast my righteousness and will not let it go;    my heart does not reproach me for any of my days. 7   “Let my enemy be as the wicked,    and let him who rises up against me be as the unrighteous.8   For what is the hope of the godless when God cuts him off,    when God takes away his life?9   Will God hear his cry    when distress comes upon him?10   Will he take delight in the Almighty?    Will he call upon God at all times?11   I will teach you concerning the hand of God;    what is with the Almighty I will not conceal.12   Behold, all of you have seen it yourselves;    why then have you become altogether vain? 13   “This is the portion of a wicked man with God,    and the heritage that oppressors receive from the Almighty:14   If his children are multiplied, it is for the sword,    and his descendants have not enough bread.15   Those who survive him the pestilence buries,    and his widows do not weep.16   Though he heap up silver like dust,    and pile up clothing like clay,17   he may pile it up, but the righteous will wear it,    and the innocent will divide the silver.18   He builds his house like a moth's,    like a booth that a watchman makes.19   He goes to bed rich, but will do so no more;    he opens his eyes, and his wealth is gone.20   Terrors overtake him like a flood;    in the night a whirlwind carries him off.21   The east wind lifts him up and he is gone;    it sweeps him out of his place.22   It9 hurls at him without pity;    he flees from its10 power in headlong flight.23   It claps its hands at him    and hisses at him from its place. Job Continues: Where Is Wisdom? 28   “Surely there is a mine for silver,    and a place for gold that they refine.2   Iron is taken out of the earth,    and copper is smelted from the ore.3   Man puts an end to darkness    and searches out to the farthest limit    the ore in gloom and deep darkness.4   He opens shafts in a valley away from where anyone lives;    they are forgotten by travelers;    they hang in the air, far away from mankind; they swing to and fro.5   As for the earth, out of it comes bread,    but underneath it is turned up as by fire.6   Its stones are the place of sapphires,11    and it has dust of gold. 7   “That path no bird of prey knows,    and the falcon's eye has not seen it.8   The proud beasts have not trodden it;    the lion has not passed over it. 9   “Man puts his hand to the flinty rock    and overturns mountains by the roots.10   He cuts out channels in the rocks,    and his eye sees every precious thing.11   He dams up the streams so that they do not trickle,    and the thing that is hidden he brings out to light. 12   “But where shall wisdom be found?    And where is the place of understanding?13   Man does not know its worth,    and it is not found in the land of the living.14   The deep says, ‘It is not in me,'    and the sea says, ‘It is not with me.'15   It cannot be bought for gold,    and silver cannot be weighed as its price.16   It cannot be valued in the gold of Ophir,    in precious onyx or sapphire.17   Gold and glass cannot equal it,    nor can it be exchanged for jewels of fine gold.18   No mention shall be made of coral or of crystal;    the price of wisdom is above pearls.19   The topaz of Ethiopia cannot equal it,    nor can it be valued in pure gold. 20   “From where, then, does wisdom come?    And where is the place of understanding?21   It is hidden from the eyes of all living    and concealed from the birds of the air.22   Abaddon and Death say,    ‘We have heard a rumor of it with our ears.' 23   “God understands the way to it,    and he knows its place.24   For he looks to the ends of the earth    and sees everything under the heavens.25   When he gave to the wind its weight    and apportioned the waters by measure,26   when he made a decree for the rain    and a way for the lightning of the thunder,27   then he saw it and declared it;    he established it, and searched it out.28   And he said to man,  ‘Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom,    and to turn away from evil is understanding.'” Footnotes [1] 24:5 Hebrew they [2] 24:6 Hebrew his [3] 24:11 Hebrew their olive rows [4] 24:12 Or the men [5] 24:22 Hebrew he [6] 25:2 Hebrew him [7] 26:6 Hebrew him [8] 26:9 Or his throne [9] 27:22 Or He (that is, God); also verse 23 [10] 27:22 Or his; also verse 23 [11] 28:6 Or lapis lazuli; also verse 16 (ESV)

Why Pray?

Pastor Deb & BDC

For Believers, praying is supposed to be like breathing, for prayer is a form of serving God. We pray because God commands us to pray (Philippians 4:6-7 do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving).  Some say all that sounds all nice and fluffy, but I pray and it seems I still can't get a break. I can't see where my prayers have significantly made a major difference in my life. Many of us exalt our prayers as directives upon which we give to God.  God is the Almighty we are called to worship and serve Him.  God is the omniscient one, the one who knows all, but we often pray  as if we know it all and God is just the genie who is supposed to listen to our request and magically work things out according to what we deem as good and pleasing.  And when things don't work out according to our standards then we dismiss our prayers as being unanswered.  When in fact every prayer ever prayed has been answered.  God loves us too much to ignore us.   Sometimes the answer to our prayer is yes, sometimes it's no, and then other times it is wait, not now. We, like spoiled children, only want to hear a “yes” from God. When His no is oftentimes a means of protecting us and His “wait, not now” is due to a timing issue. God sometimes wants us to work something out in or around us to better prepare us  for what we are praying to Him for. We have to stop throwing tantrums when we don't get what we want from God the way we want it, and humble ourselves and go back to Him for clarification and directives. James 4:3 “You ask and do not receive, because you ask wrongly, to spend it on your passions”. There are 3 fundamental principles that we need to consistently allow to guide us concerning prayer:  1. Humility  2. Faith  3. Action. 1 Peter 5:6 “Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you,” What does humility concerning prayer really look like?  First and foremost, humility acknowledges God in all His glory with all His power. Humility approaches the throne of God shutting down any residue of pride, understanding that prayer is not a right it is a gift.   A gift, not earned!  For none of us is worthy to enter into the presence of God.

Job 21–23 Job 21–23 (Listen) Job Replies: The Wicked Do Prosper 21 Then Job answered and said: 2   “Keep listening to my words,    and let this be your comfort.3   Bear with me, and I will speak,    and after I have spoken, mock on.4   As for me, is my complaint against man?    Why should I not be impatient?5   Look at me and be appalled,    and lay your hand over your mouth.6   When I remember, I am dismayed,    and shuddering seizes my flesh.7   Why do the wicked live,    reach old age, and grow mighty in power?8   Their offspring are established in their presence,    and their descendants before their eyes.9   Their houses are safe from fear,    and no rod of God is upon them.10   Their bull breeds without fail;    their cow calves and does not miscarry.11   They send out their little boys like a flock,    and their children dance.12   They sing to the tambourine and the lyre    and rejoice to the sound of the pipe.13   They spend their days in prosperity,    and in peace they go down to Sheol.14   They say to God, ‘Depart from us!    We do not desire the knowledge of your ways.15   What is the Almighty, that we should serve him?    And what profit do we get if we pray to him?'16   Behold, is not their prosperity in their hand?    The counsel of the wicked is far from me. 17   “How often is it that the lamp of the wicked is put out?    That their calamity comes upon them?    That God1 distributes pains in his anger?18   That they are like straw before the wind,    and like chaff that the storm carries away?19   You say, ‘God stores up their iniquity for their children.'    Let him pay it out to them, that they may know it.20   Let their own eyes see their destruction,    and let them drink of the wrath of the Almighty.21   For what do they care for their houses after them,    when the number of their months is cut off?22   Will any teach God knowledge,    seeing that he judges those who are on high?23   One dies in his full vigor,    being wholly at ease and secure,24   his pails2 full of milk    and the marrow of his bones moist.25   Another dies in bitterness of soul,    never having tasted of prosperity.26   They lie down alike in the dust,    and the worms cover them. 27   “Behold, I know your thoughts    and your schemes to wrong me.28   For you say, ‘Where is the house of the prince?    Where is the tent in which the wicked lived?'29   Have you not asked those who travel the roads,    and do you not accept their testimony30   that the evil man is spared in the day of calamity,    that he is rescued in the day of wrath?31   Who declares his way to his face,    and who repays him for what he has done?32   When he is carried to the grave,    watch is kept over his tomb.33   The clods of the valley are sweet to him;    all mankind follows after him,    and those who go before him are innumerable.34   How then will you comfort me with empty nothings?    There is nothing left of your answers but falsehood.” Eliphaz Speaks: Job's Wickedness Is Great 22 Then Eliphaz the Temanite answered and said: 2   “Can a man be profitable to God?    Surely he who is wise is profitable to himself.3   Is it any pleasure to the Almighty if you are in the right,    or is it gain to him if you make your ways blameless?4   Is it for your fear of him that he reproves you    and enters into judgment with you?5   Is not your evil abundant?    There is no end to your iniquities.6   For you have exacted pledges of your brothers for nothing    and stripped the naked of their clothing.7   You have given no water to the weary to drink,    and you have withheld bread from the hungry.8   The man with power possessed the land,    and the favored man lived in it.9   You have sent widows away empty,    and the arms of the fatherless were crushed.10   Therefore snares are all around you,    and sudden terror overwhelms you,11   or darkness, so that you cannot see,    and a flood of water covers you. 12   “Is not God high in the heavens?    See the highest stars, how lofty they are!13   But you say, ‘What does God know?    Can he judge through the deep darkness?14   Thick clouds veil him, so that he does not see,    and he walks on the vault of heaven.'15   Will you keep to the old way    that wicked men have trod?16   They were snatched away before their time;    their foundation was washed away.317   They said to God, ‘Depart from us,'    and ‘What can the Almighty do to us?'418   Yet he filled their houses with good things—    but the counsel of the wicked is far from me.19   The righteous see it and are glad;    the innocent one mocks at them,20   saying, ‘Surely our adversaries are cut off,    and what they left the fire has consumed.' 21   “Agree with God, and be at peace;    thereby good will come to you.22   Receive instruction from his mouth,    and lay up his words in your heart.23   If you return to the Almighty you will be built up;    if you remove injustice far from your tents,24   if you lay gold in the dust,    and gold of Ophir among the stones of the torrent-bed,25   then the Almighty will be your gold    and your precious silver.26   For then you will delight yourself in the Almighty    and lift up your face to God.27   You will make your prayer to him, and he will hear you,    and you will pay your vows.28   You will decide on a matter, and it will be established for you,    and light will shine on your ways.29   For when they are humbled you say, ‘It is because of pride';5    but he saves the lowly.30   He delivers even the one who is not innocent,    who will be delivered through the cleanness of your hands.” Job Replies: Where Is God? 23 Then Job answered and said: 2   “Today also my complaint is bitter;6    my hand is heavy on account of my groaning.3   Oh, that I knew where I might find him,    that I might come even to his seat!4   I would lay my case before him    and fill my mouth with arguments.5   I would know what he would answer me    and understand what he would say to me.6   Would he contend with me in the greatness of his power?    No; he would pay attention to me.7   There an upright man could argue with him,    and I would be acquitted forever by my judge. 8   “Behold, I go forward, but he is not there,    and backward, but I do not perceive him;9   on the left hand when he is working, I do not behold him;    he turns to the right hand, but I do not see him.10   But he knows the way that I take;    when he has tried me, I shall come out as gold.11   My foot has held fast to his steps;    I have kept his way and have not turned aside.12   I have not departed from the commandment of his lips;    I have treasured the words of his mouth more than my portion of food.13   But he is unchangeable,7 and who can turn him back?    What he desires, that he does.14   For he will complete what he appoints for me,    and many such things are in his mind.15   Therefore I am terrified

What does it mean - JESUS: Son of Man?

Jesus is referred to as the “Son of Man” 88 times in the New Testament. In fact, Son of Man is the primary title Jesus used when referring to Himself.  The only use of Son of Man in a clear reference to Jesus, spoken by someone other than Jesus, came from the lips of Stephen as he prophesied about the ascension of Jesus  just as he was about to be stoned to death. Acts 7: 55- 56 reads “ But he, full of the Holy Spirit, gazed into heaven and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing at the right hand of God. And he said, “Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God.”The term Son of Man, in contrast, focuses on the humanity of Christ. God called the prophet Ezekiel “son of man” 93 times. But why was he referred to as the son of man.The first time Ezekiel is referred to as “son of man” is in Ezekiel 2:1 “He said to me, “Son of man,[a] stand up on your feet and I will speak to you.” As he spoke, the Spirit came into me and raised me to my feet, and I heard him speaking to me.Per the scriptures it is clear God had a special relationship with Ezekiel.  Ezekiel's very name means “strengthened by God,” so God's reference to Ezekiel as “son of man” despite their very special relationship to remind him of the importance of humility in His sight.And not just him but to also keep people from idolizing him as we do today, putting those who have been strengthened or anointed by God on a pedestal. The term Son of man is simply an indirect term for “human.”Now if you pay close attention as you turn in your bible to the book of Ezekiel, if you turn to scriptures referring to Ezekiel as son of man,  notice the difference in the emphasis. The references to  Ezekiel as son of man all the lettering is in lowercase letters, unless the word “son” begins a sentence,  but any reference to Jesus as the Son of Man shows a capital S and capital M. Is that a big deal, it absolutely positively is a big deal.  Just as there is a big difference in  capital G od and lowercase g o d.  We know capital G o d references the Almighty, the Creator of all things, while lowercase  g o d, represents idolatry,
