This episode is all about the person of the Holy Spirit. Tune in as I define who He is, share why can not live a pure lifestyle without Him, and finally closing out the episode with 3 ways to invite Holy Spirit in your everyday life! As promised, here are my show notes that I used to produce this episode! The Holy Spirit is a person. Being a person, the Holy Spirit has feelings. He can become sad or angry, and others can insult Him and blaspheme against Him (Is 63:10; Mt 12:31; Ac 7:51; Eph 4:30; Heb 10:29). He has intentions, shows willfulness and discretion, loves, communicates, testifies, teaches, and prays (Neh 9:20; Jn 15:26; Ac 13:2; Rm 8:26,27; 15:30; 1Co 12:11). These are qualities that distinguish Him as a person. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/joi-williams0/support

Avoid the V@X Plague (3) (Audio) David Eells - 1/15/23   Authority Over Plagues / Building the Temple David Eells - 1/13/23  All the coughing and pains of flu-like symptoms across the country are because of the Chemtrails and 5G in the natural. I asked, Lord did these chemtrails come from the wicked? meaning the DS? And I got 2H - Yes.  Is this an innoculation, i.e. from you?  I got 2H - Yes.  I asked this a few years ago and got the same answer.  Of course it is also a test of faith to see if we will believe and confess our sacrifice, Jesus, by Whose stripes we were healed..  Jas 1:2-8 Count it all joy, my brethren, when ye fall into manifold temptations; 3 knowing that the proving of your faith worketh patience. 4 And let patience have its perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, lacking in nothing.  5 But if any of you lacketh wisdom, let him ask of God, who giveth to all liberally and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. 6 But let him ask in faith, nothing doubting: for he that doubteth is like the surge of the sea driven by the wind and tossed. 7 For let not that man think that he shall receive anything of the Lord; 8 a doubleminded man, unstable in all his ways. Heb 10:23  let us hold fast the confession of our hope that it waver not; for he is faithful that promised:  So, as we see, the Lord is also inoculating us with their plague. Merriam Webster says: “Inoculation” is the act or process or an instance of inoculating especially: the introduction of a pathogen or antigen into a living organism to stimulate the production of antibodies within the body. It is beyond a coincedence that Amber just got this book on LULU and here is the test copy and cover. (What are the chances?) We see on the cover Aaron took the censer and ran between the dying and the living and stopped the plague.   Num 16:46-50 And Moses said unto Aaron, Take thy censer, and put fire therein from off the altar,(Represents the sacrifice of Jesus by whose stripes we are healed) and lay incense thereon (representing prayer in agreement with that), and carry it quickly unto the congregation, and make atonement for them: for there is wrath gone out from Jehovah; the plague is begun.   (An atonement is a sacrifice to cover us from the curse. Jesus sacrificed Himself to deliver us from the curse but also that we could sacrifice our self life to escape the curse.)    47 And Aaron took as Moses spake, and ran into the midst of the assembly; and, behold, the plague was begun among the people: and he put on the incense, and made atonement for the people. 48 And he stood between the dead and the living; and the plague was stayed.    (Jesus our High Priest stood between the dead (representing those who died without this sacrifice) and the living that we could partake of His life, for by Whose stripes we were healed. 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.    How is the blood applied? Rom 3:23-26 for all have sinned, and fall short of the glory of God; 24 being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: 25 whom God set forth to be a propitiation, through faith, in his blood, to show his righteousness because of the passing over of the sins done aforetime, in the forbearance of God; 26 for the showing, I say, of his righteousness at this present season: that he might himself be just, and the justifier of him that hath faith in Jesus.   And 1Jn 1:7-9 but if we walk in the light (Of God's Word), as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another (What about those who hate fellowship with Christians who know their dark sins), and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanseth us from all sin. 8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.   Zec 14:12  And this shall be the plague wherewith Jehovah will smite all the peoples that have warred against Jerusalem: their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their sockets, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth.    Psa 91:1-16 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 truth is a 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.   Is Jesus in danger of plagues?  No?  Then neither are you if you believe. In our renewed imagination we see Jesus in the mirror. 2Co 3:18 But we all, with unveiled face beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are transformed into the same image from glory to glory, even as from the Lord the Spirit.    We are like Jesus in this world. We are called the Body of Christ. 1Jn 4:17  Herein is love made perfect with us, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as he is, even so are we in this world. Shalonda had a vision of merging into Jesus. Are you safe in there?  Luk 10:19  Behold, I have given you authority to tread upon serpents and scorpions (Demons), and over all the power of the enemy (Spirits of infirmity distribute plagues but we say NO. We have authority over all their power to hurt us.): and nothing shall in any wise hurt you.    Monday night prayer meeting myself several times telling you to point your fingers at saints in need and declare them healed, delivered, saved etc. With your renewed imagination see power come out of your finger by faith to do this work in them to do. And for them to receive their need through faith. Jesus said, He did always those things He saw of His Father so we do too.    Along with Jesus we speak to the mountain and dont doubt and we shall have it. Along with Jesus we say, “Be it unto you according yo your faith” and “As you have believed so shall it be unto you.”  When the two or more of us agree there is power. Did you receive monday night?  Did you give it out monday night.  Then both should believe you have received as Jesus comanded in Mark 11:23-24. Its not the method but the releasing of faith multiplied by numbers of people with faith.    The 1:11-11:1 Revelation? David Eells   In part 2 of Avoid the V@X Plague a verse was mentioned. It was Heb. 11:1 Now faith is assurance of things hoped for, a conviction of things not seen. When I read this verse in the broadcast the address numbers were reversed to Heb. 1:11. I actually read the verse this way, but immediately knew that it was 11:1 from memory. So, I corrected it in the text to reverse those numbers in the audio, which he did.   Then I looked at the “sent version” of my email to Casey and it was reversed back to 1:11. So, I asked Casey to change the text back again on the website to 11:1. I also sent the corrected text to myself and noticed that it had changed back again to 1:11. I deleted all previous drafts of my text to ensure there was some form of auto-correct happening. I wondered if the Lord was trying to tell me something.   We discovered what Heb. 1:11 says, Heb. 1:11 They shall perish; but thou continuest: And they all shall wax old as doth a garment. So, as we shall see, we figured that the two verses were speaking a message from the Lord that people will perish in the coming plagues without faith according to Heb. 11:1.   Then Eve had this dream concerning a variant that the Lord labeled 11:11 and she sent it to me.     God's Plague Variant 11:11 Eve Brast - 1/12/23 (David's notes in red)   I dreamed that I was in a narrow hallway near the entrance, inside of a building. (Jesus is the narrow Way and He is also the Door to the sheep fold by which we must enter.) I watched as Greg and Brandy came through the front door. (Greg means “Watchman” and he and Brandy represent the watchmen on the walls of Zion, as we will see.)   They were dressed in layers of clothing with scarves and toboggans on their heads. They both had one of those puffy North Face coats on top of their layered clothing. (This seems to indicate a time of very cold weather and also North Face is a play on the words, “Facing North” which is where the Bible says the Kingdom of God is located. Psa. 48:2 Beautiful in elevation, the joy of the whole earth, Is mount Zion, on the sides of the north, The city of the great King.)   Inside this building there seemed to be much concern from the people about the world events taking place, especially sickness and plagues that were going around. It seemed to be dominating all the conversations. (This is beginning to happen as more and more of God's judgments are beginning to fall on mankind through the DS powers that be.)   As Greg and Brandy passed me, I heard them talking about the new “variant” that was going around and that this was "the real deal" this time. I was wondering what number "the powers that be" had assigned to this new plague variant when, the voice of the Lord spoke from above and behind me and said, “It is variant 11:11.” (i.e. the Lord is calling it variant 11:11, no matter what the “powers that be” were calling it.) I saw the variant in a vision in the dream as a white scripture address 11:11. End.   I believe this dream is the answer to the riddle the Lord gave me of 1:11-11:1. (Heb. 1:11 They shall perish; but thou continuest: And they all shall wax old as doth a garment; Many will perish without the faith of Heb. 11:1 Now faith is assurance of things hoped for, a conviction of things not seen.)     Man-child Preserved Through Faction and Pharmakeia Attacks David Eells   On 1-11-23, I saw on my e-sword Bible search this: 2Ki 11:1 Now when Athaliah the mother of Ahaziah saw that her son was dead, she arose and destroyed all the seed royal. (Notice the addresses 1:11 and 11:1 Now here is a wonder. I had used this e-sword Bible search quite a few times after this 2Ki. 11:1 came up on 1/11 so it should not have been there; it should have been deleted. Another God thing!)   So, let's look at this text: 2Ki 11:1-21 Now when Athaliah (Whom I believe represents Jezebel, Witchcraft, and Faction, which is translated from the New Testament as Pharmakeia! Athaliah the mother of Ahaziah saw that her son was dead, she arose and destroyed all the seed royal. (Witchcraft and Faction killed the brethren of Jesus the Man-child, just like Herod did, and like Abimelech and the men of Shechem did, when the one man-child was preserved and prophesied a faction in the midst of their faction.)    2 But Jehosheba, the daughter of king Joram, sister of Ahaziah, took Joash the son of Ahaziah, and stole him away from among the king's sons that were slain, (So, one man-child survived as with Herod and with Abimelech and the men of Shechem.) even him and his nurse, and put them in the bedchamber; and they hid him from Athaliah, so that he was not slain; 3 And he was with her hid in the house of Jehovah six years. (Jesus went into Egypt to escape Herod) And Athaliah reigned over the land.    4 And in the seventh year Jehoiada sent and fetched the captains over hundreds of the Carites and of the guard, and brought them to him into the house of Jehovah; and he made a covenant with them, and took an oath of them in the house of Jehovah, and showed them the king's son. (The last man-child)   5 And he commanded them, saying, This is the thing that ye shall do: a third part of you, that come in on the sabbath, shall be keepers of the watch of the king's house; 6 and a third part shall be at the gate Sur; and a third part at the gate behind the guard: so shall ye keep the watch of the house, and be a barrier. 7 And the two companies of you, even all that go forth on the sabbath, shall keep the watch of the house of Jehovah about the king. (The military protected the Man-child till he was anointed. The Angels said that you are God's military. So exercise your authority over those who want to destroy the Man-child, as we will see in Michael's dream.)   8 And ye shall compass the king round about, every man with his weapons in his hand; and he that cometh within the ranks, let him be slain: and be ye with the king when he goeth out, and when he cometh in. (We just received this text in our morning prayer meeting.) 9 And the captains over hundreds did according to all that Jehoiada the priest commanded; and they took every man his men, those that were to come in on the sabbath, with those that were to go out on the sabbath and came to Jehoiada the priest.   10 And the priest delivered to the captains over hundreds the spears and shields that had been king David's, which were in the house of Jehovah. 11 And the guard stood, every man with his weapons in his hand, from the right side of the house to the left side of the house, along by the altar and the house, by the king round about.    (This was written in the margin of my bible On 11-12-16 (Notice the number!) which is also the address of the verse 11:12, when I asked the Lord, “Will you give me authority, faith and Mercy to take down Faction” [i.e. in church and state] and put my finger on this verse which I took to mean, “Yes”:) 11:12 Then he brought out the king's son, and put the crown upon him, and gave him the testimony; and they made him king, and anointed him; and they clapped their hands, and said, Long live the king.   13 And when Athaliah heard the noise of the guard and of the people, she came to the people into the house of Jehovah: 14 and she looked, and, behold, the king stood by the pillar, as the manner was, and the captains and the trumpets by the king; and all the people of the land rejoiced, and blew trumpets. Then Athaliah rent her clothes, and cried, Treason! treason! (Like, Killary and Pelosi who both met their demise.)    15 And Jehoiada the priest commanded the captains of hundreds that were set over the host, and said unto them, Have her forth between the ranks; and him that followeth her slay with the sword. For the priest said, Let her not be slain in the house of Jehovah. (We agree, no faction or witchcraft is permitted in the “house of the Lord”.) 16 So they made way for her; and she went by the way of the horses' entry to the king's house: and there was she slain. (In GITMO)   17 And Jehoiada made a covenant between Jehovah and the king and the people, that they should be Jehovah's people; between the king also and the people. 18 And all the people of the land (People of the Land? This we have received in dreams, visions, and words that the DS uprising will come against the apostate Church and we can already see that Pharmakeia, or witchcraft, has come against them in the “Died Suddenly” plague.) all the people of the land went to the house of Baal, and brake it down; his altars and his images brake they in pieces thoroughly, and slew Mattan the priest of Baal before the altars.(Mattan represented the apostate leadership. Baal was the false Jesus in the apostate Churches.)   And the priest appointed officers over the house of Jehovah. 19 And he took the captains over hundreds, and the Carites, and the guard, and all the people of the land; and they brought down the king from the house of Jehovah, and came by the way of the gate of the guard unto the king's house. And he sat on the throne of the kings. 20 So all the people of the land rejoiced, and the city was quiet. And Athaliah they had slain with the sword at the king's house. 21 Jehoash (The Man-child) was seven years old when he began to reign.     Assassination Dream  Michael Hare - 12/31/22 (David's notes in red) I dreamed I was standing in the kitchen near the sink and saw outside a big silver truck that was trailering a very large white speed boat behind it. (Silver and white seem initially a positive thing. But outward appearances can be deceiving.) I yelled at David and told him someone was coming up the driveway.(Before this man showed up to visit us in real life, we considered it a good thing.) The truck just came on into the garage with the boat sticking outside. David went out into the garage to see who it was and by the time I got to the garage door and opened it, I saw David sitting on his knees in a bowed position. He looked up at me with a reserved look of fate on his face!  I knew instantly that the driver of the truck pulling the boat had a pistol pointed at David. Fear for David struck me very hard and then the dream ended. (The pistol was to give me “a shot”; meaning assassination by the vaccine plague. I had asked the Lord if he had the plague and got a positive answer, confirmed by lot. The boat represented the fact that this man did not want to get into the Water of the Word, which happened before my eyes in the natural. Then, below, we received a confirming dream of this person not receiving the Water, but leaving in anger and being judged.)    Judgment upon the Enemies of the Man-child Reformers Alenna Timoshchuk - 12/30/22 (David's notes in red) I had a dream… [about a couple]. Their names were either Annie and Gary or Anita and Andre. I looked up both sets of names and they both meant about the same thing. Annie means “grace and favor” and Anita means, “graceful and merciful”. Gary means, “spear” and Andre means, “warrior”. (As we will see, this represents people who fight against the Man-child Davids.) So here is the dream. This new couple came to UBM and their names were one of the ones I mentioned above. (We know who this couple is. They are the ones from Michael's dream.) They seemed sweet. The man was tall and had a beard and the woman was shorter and had dark hair. (Those were the only characteristics I could remember.) They joined for one meeting and then the woman was at home while the man went to a meeting with Michael and David… Michael and David gently gave this man a correction and he immediately got very angry and left the meeting. (Anger resides in the bosom of a fool. Fools hate correction.) He was walking home in a rage and right before he reached his driveway, I saw leaves and dust start swirling around him and a fire rose up out of the ground and consumed him. When the fire dissipated, all that was left, were his bones. (This destruction seems like a spiritual judgment that happens to the factious when those demons take them over.) My husband David and I were driving by their house and we saw his skeleton on the ground right before his driveway and he told me that we needed to go in and let his wife know what happened. We came to her door and she let us in. My husband exchanged a few pleasantries with her, then nodded pointedly at me and stepped out of the house. I came up to her with tears in my eyes and gave her a hug. As I was hugging her, I told her everything that happened to her husband. She cried a little and then stepped out of my embrace and wiped her tears and smiled a little. Then she got busy in her kitchen and started making tea as she was expecting some other women from our fellowship to come over. I watched her, surprised that she was able to compose herself so quickly, and had this sense that the Lord set her free and delivered her of a burden. After I wrote the dream down, I asked the Lord for a verse and received Mark 10:48 and my finger landed on the words “many rebuked him”  And many rebuked him, that he should hold his peace: but he cried out the more a great deal, Thou son of David, have mercy on me. I prayed asking the Lord for a verse to confirm this dream and my finger landed on Psa 1:5-6 Therefore, the wicked shall not stand in the judgment, Nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. For Jehovah knoweth the way of the righteous; But the way of the wicked shall perish. We believe that many who will not listen will be judged by these plagues. We have been told by the Lord that He would use the plagues to remove people who are hindering His leadership in families and assemblies.   Disregarding the Prophet's Voice David Eells - 12/28/22   Last night I was given a vision that I believe is about the prophet Jesus' voice being heard through His vessels but then being disregarded. This caused them to be cut off as in Acts 3:23  And it shall be, that every soul that shall not hearken to that prophet, shall be utterly destroyed from among the people.)     I was looking out of my window at a little bird with no particular markings that was singing. (The Lord showed me that this represents His pleasant voice going forth and at first being admired and accepted like some have come to us and listened.) Then the bird swooped down and landed on the concrete at the base of my house.   As I watched, the bird morphed into a bigger hawk or eagle type shape. (The Lord showed me that this represented the vessel they first listened to, who were based on the concrete or rock, becoming a judgment on those who ceased to listen. The Lamb becomes the Lion.   These people who ceased to listen and have gotten judged has happened for years now. Mat. 21:42 Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, The same was made the head of the corner; This was from the Lord, And it is marvelous in our eyes? ) (This eagle represents the anointed Man-child which the angels confirmed was the meaning of my sighting of a large eagle flying low at the back door of my house.)   The Owl Becomes an Eagle Marie Kelton - 1/14/23 (David's notes in red)   In this dream, I was with my little sister in Chicago. We were outside and it was daytime, we saw a little brown owl perched on a tree. (As we will see, this represents the pre-anointed, wise Man-child.) We looked into the sky and saw two eagles perched on a cloud. (These are the “great cloud of witnesses of Jesus who passed on their words to today's Man-child Body.) Then we saw, the little owl fly up to the eagles. (Representing the Man-child caught up to the throne.) I had a thought that the eagles in the cloud were the owl's parents. (These modern-day Man-child's are direct descendants of the original two by two witnesses of Jesus.)   As we were taking pictures of it with our cell phones, I realized that it wasn't a little brown owl but an eagle that was flying to the two eagles on the cloud. (The Man-child exhibits the gift of wisdom before the anointing to be an eagle.) Then I heard David say in the dream, “The Lord wants us to be like eagles and not like owls.” (Owls are more earthly birds flying near to the ground, whereas, eagles fly far more heavenly as you would expect with a latter rain anointing.) Then I woke up. Back to my vision: Then, the vision changed and I was sharing with some people in my house who were listening to the Word intently and then as I was speaking they suddenly ignored me as I spoke and started to chatter senselessly to one another. They interrupted me rudely and became stupid. (This is what happens when one doesn't act on what they hear and end up factioning away. We have been told by the Lord in dreams and visions that many of these people will be taken out by the plagues.)   I noted through this process that our brother Greg was watching and listening to this scenario. Then I woke up.(The name Greg means, “Vigilant, Watchful.” I believe that this indicates that the watchful and vigilant righteous will learn from this scenario how important respecting the voice of the Lord is.)   So, we see that those who do not listen and hinder the truth may be separated and removed by the plagues.   Brandy had this dream below a few days before I had my revelation.      The Scoffers Won't Listen Brandy Arney - 12/26/22 (David's notes in red)   I dreamed that my wife Amber and I had been in a classroom setting in a school. (The school represents apostate Christianity in Babylonish captivity.) We were seated among the students and I was talking to them about fasting and its benefits. (Fasting represents denying your flesh.)   Many of the students were scoffing with each statement I made. (The flesh hates the crucified life and those who walk after the flesh will die. Rom. 8:12-14 So then, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh: 13 for if ye live after the flesh, ye must die; but if by the Spirit ye put to death the deeds of the body, ye shall live. 14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.   And 2Pe. 3:3,7  knowing this first, that in the last days mockers shall come with mockery, walking after their own lusts, … 7 but the heavens that now are, and the earth, by the same word have been stored up for fire, being reserved against the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men. )   But there was one young man sitting to my left that was asking sincere questions and I began to address him directly as he was looking up to me with undivided attention. I felt love for him as he was looking at me with his stringy hair partially covering his eyes.(This young man represents the remnant that is coming out from among them. Rev. 18:4,8 … Come forth, my people, out of her, that ye have no fellowship with her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues… 8 Therefore in one day shall her plagues come, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire; for strong is the Lord God who judged her. )   We were there, it seemed, to try to evangelize the students, however, there was no interest save for the one young mixed- race boy that was seated next to me. (This boy represents all races who listen and come out since he is “mixed race.” John 8:47 He that is of God heareth the words of God: for this cause ye hear them not, because ye are not of God.)   I gently spoke to everyone, saying to them that when we fast, God works in us to help us in every way. It was as if each time I answered a question the Holy Spirit would rise up in me and answer the question in a more direct tone which made the scoffing and disrespectful students more agitated and vocal. (Mat. 10:19-20 But when they deliver you up, be not anxious how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that hour what ye shall speak. 20 For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father that speaketh in you.)   They would talk over me, as I spoke, and bark loudly when I explained to them how the flesh would weaken more and more with each day of fasting. (The more we deny self, the more self dies and Christ takes its place. 2Co 4:16 Wherefore we faint not; but though our outward man is decaying, yet our inward man is renewed day by day.)   When there were no more questions, Amber and I got up and walked out into the hallway and started towards the front door to leave the school. This school we were leaving seemed to be a typical school of today. It was full of lost students and worldly leadership. (Hos 5:15  I will go and return to my place, till they acknowledge their offence, and seek my face: in their affliction they will seek me earnestly.)    Near the entrance of the school there was a glass trophy case facing the main doors of the building. (The trophy case represents their idols of self-accomplishment and competition.)    To the right of it was a framed painting or poster which resembled the African continent. (The African continent represents the beginning of the UBM revival that we have had dreams about.) The land mass was green and surrounded by water on all sides. Over the land there was a giant red swooping arrow which was pointing to a specific area of the map. There was a small cartoon bubble that gave an explanation to the arrow's meaning.    It read something like, "The point of the arrow represents the current real time progress of the group who are traveling through the wilderness; these are being led by Michael”.  (Michael means, “Who is like God?” And represents the Man-child who is like God and leading the “un-scoffers” through the wilderness tribulation.) I either was told or I just knew by the preceding travel progress line that this group had completed roughly 70 percent of the journey. (70 years was the point at which the captive Israelites / Church followed the Man-child and returned to their promised land.)   The direction of the travel had been from the north headed south, southwest. (When the Israelites/Church left Babylonish captivity, this was the direction they had to travel to get to the promised land to rebuild the kingdom.) They had traveled through the middle part of the country or continent and were headed towards the water or coastline. I felt somehow proud that they/we had made the journey and that the ending was in sight. (The coastline represents the end of their journey out of captivity.  Zep. 2:6-7 And the sea-coast shall be pastures, with cottages for shepherds and folds for flocks. 7 And the coast shall be for the remnant of the house of Judah; they shall feed their flocks thereupon; in the houses of Ashkelon shall they lie down in the evening; for Jehovah their God will visit them, and bring back their captivity.) Then I woke up.     Big Waves Of Judgement Coming  Claire Pienaar - 12/8/22 (David's notes in red)   I dreamed Riaan was driving our silver van, and I was sitting at the back of the van with my children. (I am being used in this dream to represent the Bride because my name means “brilliant” and the Bride's garments are bright and pure as is spoken of in Rev. 19:8 And it was given unto her that she should array herself in fine linen, bright and pure: for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints. Riaan represents the Man-Child as his name means “little lion king”. The silver van represents the Holy Spirit, which is the vehicle which gives us the “power to move” like Christ. I am sitting at the back of the van, which represents the Bride in submission to her Lord, as well as in the rest with her fruit [represented by Claire's children]).     Two other people were with me who were my parents in the dream. (They likely represent the original gospel, once and for all delivered to the saints. Jude 3: 3 Beloved, while I was giving all diligence to write unto you of our common salvation, I was constrained to write unto you exhorting you to contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all delivered unto the saints.).    …Riaan had driven us so far into the wilderness and we could go no further. There was no more road, and the bush was too thick. He made a U-turn with the van. We had not started driving forward yet, and were perpendicular to the road, when a massive rushing wave of water as tall as a 2 stories came hurtling down the road.    I thought “Wow. No time to escape”. Instead of the water crashing over the van and destroying it, the van lifted up and rode the wave of water, but the water seeped in through the van's floor. The van was up high on the wave for a considerable amount of time. Then it crashed down and I thought “It's a miracle the tires haven't popped”.   ...In a flash we were in a wilderness exploration place. I remember it as being the same place Riaan was translated to in one of his dreams. ... It's called “Russell Falls” (Russell means “little ruddy one, little red-haired one. So we were translated to where the flesh falls!).     We stood on the deck at the visitor's center of this Nature Reserve. I looked up in the tree that was growing through the deck, and my old History Professor was there (Representing Jesus, our history professor, as He spoke or professed and everything was created.). I greeted him and he greeted me by name! I was amazed he had remembered me. (I asked the Lord who the professor was and I flipped my Bible open by faith at random on the phrase “light of the world”, from Mat 5:14).    I asked him how work at the university was going, and he replied, “I have been made redundant”. (i.e. no longer needed or useful, which is exactly the world's attitude toward Christ and His Word.) He asked me what I was doing, and I said, “Everything I was created for: living for God, and raising my family, helping my husband, learning”. He seemed pleased.     There were other people in the refuge [area] but they were not waiting on the deck. In the dream there was a beach and these people were terribly close to the open water. (Indicating that they will be subjected to the tsunami of judgment.) One of these people was a boy who committed suicide who was in my senior year in high school. He was with other young men from my high school days.(Many will commit spiritual suicide because they didn't heed the warnings of the prophets.)    We were supposed to wait there for one whole day. We had no internet connection, no cell phone reception, nothing.(Representing not giving heed to what man is communicating and the disinformation and propaganda that is being perpetuated by many media outlets including many in the alternative media. Ultimately, true disciples can not go beyond what the Word of God says which is represented by Claire and her family being on the deck (or in the Ark) with Jesus our Professor.) ...Then I woke up.     I asked the Lord for a word by faith at random and received Neh 2: 19-20, with my finger on "Sanballat and Tobiah the servant" (Sanballat means “bramble-bush; or enemy in secret.” Tobiah means “Yahweh is good”.)  But when Sanballat the Horonite, and Tobiah the servant, the Ammonite, and Geshem the Arabian, heard it, they laughed us to scorn, and despised us, (Here again are the scoffers who will receive judgment.) and said, What is this thing that ye do? will ye rebel against the king? 20 Then answered I them, and said unto them, The God of heaven, he will prosper us; therefore we his servants will arise and build: but ye have no portion, nor right, nor memorial, in Jerusalem.(Nehemiah represents those whom the Lord uses to administer the judgements.)   I also received Lamentations 1:9 by faith at random:  Her filthiness was in her skirts; she remembered not her latter end; Therefore is she come down wonderfully; she hath no comforter: Behold, O Jehovah, my affliction; for the enemy hath magnified himself. (These verses give a pretty clear indication of why the judgement is coming.)   I asked the Lord to help me with this dream, and I received by faith at random, Jonah 2:7 When my soul fainted within me, I remembered Jehovah; And my prayer came in unto thee, into thy holy temple. (Jonah represents what to do to escape the judgements).      "Project Ark” Deb Horton - 12/31/22 (David's notes in red)   I dreamed I was in a city and it seemed to be a grayish, cloudy day. There were gray buildings, gray sidewalks, and the colors were very muted and washed-out. I was standing in front of an office building, maybe a skyscraper, but my vision was extremely limited to my immediate surroundings. (The gray city represents Babylon which is dead in its sins.)   I was in a conversation with a man I didn't know, nor did he know me. It was just one of those conversations people strike up when they're waiting somewhere and become bored, or make a comment that another person responds to and it turns into a friendly exchange.    I must have asked him about his job because he said, "Project Ark" or "The Ark." I was excited when I heard that, but he didn't understand why I was excited. I said, "Don't you know what that means?" and he just looked at me with a blank expression. End. (He was a member of the Babylonish city and though he was bringing people into the beginning of the Kingdom he did not know he would have to escape the wrath of God to come since most of these people believe the rapture will deliver them from all trouble.) I asked Father to give me a verse by faith at random about the overall dream and received, (Isa.9:6-7) For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. 7 Of the increase of his government and of peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to establish it, and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of Jehovah of hosts will perform this. (This represents the Man-child, Jesus, and the repetition of history, the Man-child of our day. Both of their jobs were to preserve people from the wrath to come. Respectively, in 70 AD and then in our day, by getting them into the Ark.) The Ark was a hiding place from the curse represented by the waters.   Hide in Me from the Coming Pestilence Marie Kelton - 1/2/23 (David's notes in red)   During our meeting, I had an open vision of the Lord sitting on a throne as I was sitting on His lap. I heard Him say, “Hide in me. Hide in me from the coming pestilence.” I saw myself merge into Him after He spoke those words. (I felt there was a sense of urgency [in the Lord's voice] when He was telling me to “hide in him.”)   I then had another vision of me with a white head covering on. I watched from heaven as an asteroid coming from the sky hit a city that was on the earth. (The impact of this coming plague could be as destructive as an asteroid from heaven. This could be a spiritual representation of God's judgment on Babylon of pestilence since the Lord told her to “Hide in Me from the coming pestilence.”) The city blew up and dark gray smoke was coming from the city (representing Babylon).    I thought of the song, "You are my hiding place, whenever I am afraid, I will trust in you.”   This Isn't a Game Samuel Fire - 1/11/23 (David's notes in red)  After praying, I saw a vision of me, my wife and all the brethren. We were all lined up as though ready for a track race. Each of us had a giant rubber band strapped around our waist. We were observed by a jeering and condescending crowd but they never got too close. (The crowd is the World and their carnal perspective; ridiculing those who pursue Christ.)(Again, we see here the scoffers who won't listen.) An official, who looked like Michael Hare was there with instructions and a starter flag. He explained we all had a pole on our lane. We were to stretch this rubber band and touch the pole. He explained further that no one has actually touched the pole by themselves (i.e. in their own strength and efforts.) and [that the ones who relied on their own ability experienced], the rubber band recoil back [and they failed to reach the pole]. He said to be careful and know your goal. Zec 4:6  Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of Jehovah unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, saith Jehovah of hosts.   I could then see ... ahead to the pole. I realized that there was a person [who was standing] as the pole. He looked like the Lord Jesus and was standing there with open arms and a very warm smile. I knew, then, that this was more than just a game and to be taken very seriously. (Our deepest desire is the Lord, [to manifest Him should be] our goal in life) Rom 14:18  For who herein serveth Christ is well-pleasing to God, and approved of men.   Then Michael waved the flag and shouted, “Go!". Everyone was serious and focused on reaching their goal. I didn't look anymore to see about the others, and just wanted to reach the Lord. I heard the crowd yelling out things like, "No one ever reaches the pole", and “You're weak" and "Why are you doing this?".(The religious people want to discourage us because they do not believe that we are called to Christ likeness.)   Once I started, I realized that this rubber band was the enemy trying to hold me back! I remembered the verse in Php. 4:13  I can do all things in him that strengtheneth me. Also, Php 3:12-14  Not that I have already received, or am already made perfect: but I follow on, if so be that I may apprehend that for which also I was apprehended by Christ Jesus. 13  Brethren, I reckon not myself yet to have apprehended: but one thing, forgetting the things behind, and stretching forward to those before, 14  I follow on toward the mark unto the prize of the upward calling of God in Christ Jesus.   I pressed on and was at my body's physical limits. I saw on the ground markers of other people's best achievements. I looked up and saw the adoring love from our Lord and I thought, “Nothing can sustain me but my Lord God.” (The Lord has completed and conquered all, and He, in us, can do the same.) (2Co. 12:9 And he hath said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my power is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my weaknesses, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.)  1Jn 4:4  Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is the one in you than the one in the world. So, I took more steps, but my steps were as if something else was giving me the power. (By faith we are supernaturally charged and can move mountains).  2Co 5:7  (for we walk through faith, not through sight) And Mat 21:21  And Jesus answered and said to them, Amen I say unto you, If ye shall have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do what is done to the fig tree, but even if ye shall say to this mountain, Be taken up and cast into the sea, it shall be done.   Then I heard the rubber band, which was attached at the starting line, begin to make snapping noises. I knew that just pressing in and pushing forward was my deepest desire; to be in His Arms. I then heard a snap and the rubber band just dropped and drooped around me. It didn't even make a recoil. It didn't fling and hit me, but sagged like an oversized ribbon and dragged behind me.  (The rubber band represents the enemy trying to hold us all back from fully manifesting Jesus and trying to also stop us from being with Him. The further away we get [from our starting point on our journey towards Christ], the rubber band around us gets tighter and the more intense the enemy gets, the closer we get to Jesus. The enemy gives us trials, more and more increasingly difficult and when we overcome, the rubber band snaps and the enemy is defeated!)  Before I knew it, I was already at the pole and the Lord was indeed smiling greatly. Then I woke up. (I realized that we need to press on to the best prize, Jesus, despite every resistance. We are to remain true to the Word and break through the challenges.)     Pure Food Satisfies Those Truly Hungry Gaynold Mozer - 1/9/23 (David's notes in red)   I was in a gymnasium similar to the one my children attended.  Rows of chairs were set up facing a stage where there were several people sitting. These chairs were filled with those attending this event. (From the beginning I felt those on stage were the apostate preachers and those attending were a representation of their followers.)   Someone on stage was talking, but few people were actually listening. Instead many were talking amongst themselves, laughing and joking around. They were not serious about listening to the words being spoken to them. (Many were there to put their time in and call it good for the rest of the week.)   Behind the rows of chairs were white tables with many white bowls filled with what looked to me to be white, hot cereal.  Everything there was white.  There was not a set time to eat, but occasionally someone would get up and walk by the tables.  Many looked, but most kept on walking and walked right out the door. (Showing no appreciation for the pure Word.)   There were a few who took a bowl. These were the ones who went up the stairs to go on the stage that was to the right of the other stage [on the left]. (Those on the left are the stubborn goats.) The [stage on the right] was enclosed with red velvet curtains. (I had not seen this stage in the beginning.) (Nobody does!) I didn't know what was behind the curtain until someone with a white bowl parted the curtain enough to walk back behind the right stage.    It was then that I saw David standing with a book in his hand. There were people eating at a white table in front of David. He was holding the Bible, teaching the true word of God that these people were desiring to hear. (I felt that David was representing the Man-child reformer Body. The white bowls of white food on the tables represented the books he has written. They all looked alike because they all had the pure word of God in them. The red velvet curtains set these people apart from all the rest. They were covered by the blood of Jesus. They were not distracted by the behavior of the worldly Church.)   Back to the dream: Later as I looked over the gymnasium, I could see that most of the chairs were gone, but there were a few empty chairs sitting amongst candy wrappers and other papers strewn on the floor. (The apostates only want to partake of sugary things.) The majority of the people left without eating the white food. Some did look at the food, but few partook of it. Most just walked out quietly. (I felt the few empty chairs still sitting on the floor belonged to those who were truly hungry and were now behind the red velvet curtain where truth was being taught.) They were the ones who went away satisfied!   The verse I received by faith at random for this dream was Eze. 12:2 (My finger was on the word dwellest.) Son of man, thou dwellest in the midst of the rebellious house, that have eyes to see, and see not, that have ears to hear, and hear not; for they are a rebellious house. (What sorrow Jesus must feel as He stands in their midst. This chapter is very much for today, reminding us that things cannot continue, there will be judgment coming soon.)    This verse brought back to my remembrance a vision I had while attending a meeting at the last fellowship my husband and I had joined in the past. In the vision, there was barely any light in the room, but I saw Jesus crying as He walked between the tables. (I was not allowed to share this vision with them.)   I asked for another verse by faith at random for the red velvet curtain and received Rev. 1:7-8 My finger was between vs. 7 and 8, (in context 5-8) and from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead, and ruler of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loveth us, and loosed us from our sins by his blood; 6 and he made us to be a kingdom, to be priests unto his God and father; to him be the glory and the dominion for ever and ever.  Amen. 7 Behold, he cometh with the clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they that pierced him; and all the tribes of the earth shall mourn over him. Even so. Amen. 8 I am the Alpha and the Omega, saith the Lord God, who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.       Every Knee Will Bow Judy Fahrnow - 12/4/22 (David's notes in red)   I dreamed about the Lord coming on a cloud. I knew that Jesus was coming, but I saw faces of fear. There were a few happy faces. I saw a young girl with short black hair standing & pulling her hair out. (These are the rebellious goats who are submitted to darkness.)   I had a small Bible in my hand and I told people, “Don't fear or be worried, it says here in the Bible that WE WIN!" I just went around to everyone and kept saying that phrase while holding my Bible out in front. I also said, "Every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus is Lord. Be happy!"     But the girl keep pulling her black hair out. (Some people who are submitted to darkness know that they are not ready to meet the Lord, but the ones that are ready will not be ashamed at His coming. 1Jo 2:28 And now, my little children, abide in him; that, if he shall be manifested (in us), we may have boldness, and not be ashamed before him at his coming.)   Then we saw Jesus coming on the cloud and there was a lot of color all around Him. (Representing the attributes of the light. Jesus is the Light of the world.) Then I woke up.    I received by faith at random Pro 17:4 (My finger was on “an evil-doer”.) An evil-doer giveth heed to wicked lips; And a liar giveth ear to a mischievous tongue. 5 Whoso mocketh the poor [in spirit] reproacheth his Maker; And he that is glad at calamity shall not be unpunished.     All the Tribes of the Earth Will Mourn Vanessa Weeks - 1/11/21(David's notes in red)   (Notice the date of this dream is 1-11. This is also the gematria of the Man-child.)   I dreamed that it was very dark outside and I saw destruction several places. Some of these things were natural disasters like earthquakes and tornados.    Then I saw some people and they appeared dark because of the darkness. Some of these people were standing and some kneeling but they were together in a group.   Then these people started to mourn and I heard it very clearly and it was very sad. As I heard them mourning, I thought , “All the tribes of the earth will mourn." Then I woke up.   Rev 1:7  Behold, he cometh with the clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they that pierced him; and all the tribes of the earth shall mourn over him. Even so, Amen. (Those who have persecuted His disciples have persecuted Him.)     The Man-child Manifested in His Reformers Tiannah Fire - 1/10/23 (David's notes in red) I dreamt that God had raised up a small number of individual men all around the world and they were manifesting Jesus and their 100 fold authority and boldness in Christ. The men weren't physically together but they were each in all different locations. They got persecuted, however, it didn't move them because it was just Jesus working in them. When the persecution would come to these men, it would just bounce off of them and it couldn't hurt or touch them. ...(This is as it was with Jesus and His disciples up until their crucifixion.)   The men would travel around the place with absolute basic living not even having a normal place to stay most of the time, and they would be followed by those who wanted to learn to manifest Jesus. (After the mid tribulation period this may be true since disciples will not be able to buy nor sell.)I saw one man named Timothy (meaning, “Honoring God” or “Honored by God”). God was using him and he had a group of people that followed him and they were living out in the bush [or tribulation wilderness] and he was teaching them how to exercise their authority and manifest Jesus. He didn't really manifest many emotions like humans do, but was serious about God and calm, gentle, compassionate, but also bold and fierce and mentally strong. Timothy moved around but at this time was staying in a tiny blue silver caravan and all those following him just lived outside the caravan, sleeping under the stars. Timothy was teaching them all how to follow Jesus and walk as He walked. I then saw Chuc from the UBM worship team, as one of these men, and he was manifesting the boldness and authority in Christ also. He had a group of people following him that he was raising up and teaching how to walk as Jesus. He was doing the same as Timothy, except in a different area and different circumstances. Then I woke up.      Select Language Afrikaans Albanian Amharic Arabic Armenian Assamese Aymara Azerbaijani Bambara Basque Belarusian Bengali Bhojpuri Bosnian Bulgarian Catalan Cebuano Chichewa Chinese (Simplified) Chinese (Traditional) Corsican Croatian Czech Danish Dhivehi Dogri Dutch Esperanto Estonian Ewe Filipino Finnish French Frisian Galician Georgian German Greek Guarani Gujarati Haitian Creole Hausa Hawaiian Hebrew Hindi Hmong Hungarian Icelandic Igbo Ilocano Indonesian Irish Italian Japanese Javanese Kannada Kazakh Khmer Kinyarwanda Konkani Korean Krio Kurdish (Kurmanji) Kurdish (Sorani) Kyrgyz Lao Latin Latvian Lingala Lithuanian Luganda Luxembourgish Macedonian Maithili Malagasy Malay Malayalam Maltese Maori Marathi Meiteilon (Manipuri) Mizo Mongolian Myanmar (Burmese) Nepali Norwegian Odia (Oriya) Oromo Pashto Persian Polish Portuguese Punjabi Quechua Romanian Russian Samoan Sanskrit Scots Gaelic Sepedi Serbian Sesotho Shona Sindhi Sinhala Slovak Slovenian Somali Spanish Sundanese Swahili Swedish Tajik Tamil Tatar Telugu Thai Tigrinya Tsonga Turkish Turkmen Twi Ukrainian Urdu Uyghur Uzbek Vietnamese Welsh Xhosa Yiddish Yoruba Zulu Powered by Translate Printer-friendly version

— Awake energy is fresh, new, and present within us and within all of existence. When we are in contact with awake energy, we trust the goodness, wisdom, and spontaneity of our knowingness and beingness. We are aware that we interact with all of existence and are supported by a network of steady light and kindness through every experience, the ones we humanly term wonderful, and the ones we humanly term terrible. We also understand that as we thrive in insight and caring, we support all beings in their insight, caring, success, and victory on all levels. If our perceptions have carried fear, obstruction, limitation, or have encouraged us to believe in the illusion of separateness, we heal those perceptions. We live in the fullness of the present moment, in overflowing pure love, wisdom, strength, courage, and confidence. We trust the beneficence of life here and now, in our very bodies, hearts, minds, and lives — and in every moment and every time and place. We are in harmony with our own energy and so interact with the energy of other human beings with nonattachment and understanding, caring and good humor. We do not expect our satisfaction to come from other humans acting in any predetermined way because we are aware that satisfaction is within us always — and then naturally, the beauty and preciousness of all life will shine spontaneously in energy, consciousness, and openness, including through unprecedented kindness and gladness shared with other humans.

No voy a detener las obras para ir a reunirme con ustedes'” (Neh. 6:3, PDT ).Algunas veces, cuando nuestros enemigos se burlan y nos critican, lo mejor que podemos hacer es seguir el ejemplo de Nehemías. En lugar de perder el tiempo dando explicaciones a quienes no desean entender, podemos decir simplemente: “Estoy demasiado ocupado y haciendo un gran trabajo. No tengo tiempo para esto".Los enemigos de Nehemías entraron en pánico cuando notaron que la muralla había sido reedificada y que solo faltaba colocar las puertas. Si no lograban distraer a Nehemías pronto, el proyecto sería terminado en tiempo récord y el futuro de Israel quedaría asegurado. Fingiendo que deseaban resolver las disputas, Sambalat, Tobías y Guesén invitaron a Nehemías a reunirse con ellos en otro pueblo, en Quefirim. Nehemías se negó cuatro veces, diciéndoles que sencillamente no tenía tiempo que perder. Después de pasar años sirviendo como copero del rey Artajerjes, ¡Nehemías podía oler un complot a kilómetros de distancia! Pero sus enemigos no se dieron por vencidos. Lo invitaron una quinta vez, diciendo que se rumoreaba que él estaba reconstruyendo la muralla para convertirse en el próximo rey de los judíos. Si Nehemías no se reunía con ellos -lo amenazaron-, enviarían esta información al rey Artajerjes. Aunque lo acusaban de ser un traidor, Nehemías simplemente dijo: “Nada de lo que tú dices es cierto, son puros inventos tuyos” (Neh. 6:8, PDT). Sin perder un minuto más, él continuó con la obra que Dios le había dado. No se gastó en dar explicaciones ni fue a Quefirim para convencer a la gente del pueblo que los rumores eran falsos. Sencillamente oro: “Dios, dame más fuerzas" y continuó con su tarea.Algunas veces, las críticas pueden ayudarnos a crecer y a madurar; otras veces, prestarles atención sería una gran pérdida de tiempo. Sir Winston Churchill lo explica con estas palabras: "No respondemos a las críticas. No respondemos a la difamación [...] Si lo hiciéramos, todo nuestro tiempo estaría dedicado a combatir ataques” (como se cita en Liderazgo con propósito, de Rick Warren). Algunas veces, lo mejor que puedes hacer es reconocer que no hay tiempo que perder.Señor, necesito discernimiento y sabiduría para no perder el tiempo con acusaciones y difamaciones. Ayúdame, conforme a tus promesas (Sant 1:5). Muéstrame cuándo debo prestarle atención a un comentario crítico y cuándo debo ignorarlo por completo.

Psalm 11 - "If the Foundations are Destroyed"

Pastor Mike Impact Ministries

It's difficult to determine the historical background of this Psalm. Whatever the crisis, the psalm teaches us that we must choose between fear (walking by sight) or trust (walking by faith), listening to human counsel or obeying the wisdom that comes from the Lord (James 1:5). One commentator said that the Lord allowed David to face every human crisis and emotion that we all face so that as he wrote his prayers of anguish in the Psalms, and his delight in worship and praise, we could relate to him and make these our prayers and praise too! We should find great comfort and encouragement as read and meditate on them daily! In verse 1, David is facing a crisis and his counselors immediately told him to leave Jerusalem and head for the safety of the mountains. They didn't seem to have faith that the Lord could see him through (see 3:2 and 4:6). It's right for us to flee from temptation (2 Tim. 2:22) as Joseph did (Gen. 39:11-13), but it's wrong to flee from the place of duty, as Nehemiah was invited to do (Neh. 6:10-11). The leader who flees needlessly from the crisis is only a hireling and not a faithful shepherd (John 10:12-13). Beware of listening to unwise counsel. Put your faith in the Lord, and He will protect you and direct your paths. In verse 2, "For, look", suggests that these counselors are walking by sight and evaluating the situation from the human perspective. (See 2 Kings 6:8-23.) It's good to know the facts, but it's better to look at those facts in the light of the presence and promises of God. David's enemies were attacking him with lies and deceit. This verse reminds me of Ephesians 6 where the devil shoots his fiery darts of lies at us when we are standing for the Lord. In verse 3, we are asked the question, “If the foundations are destroyed what can the righteous do?” The foundation of society is built on truth and justice, and when truth is questioned or denied, and justice is not being carried out, the foundations of our lives and society shake (Isa. 59:11-15). Law and order, truth and justice, can only take place where there is mutual trust between individuals because of the foundation of God's Word and Jesus Christ. And when we have individual respect, and a sense of responsibility, because we know we are accountable to a Holy God, and that there will be a future judgment, we have a firm foundation that will produce peace and security. So, “What can the righteous do?” For years I used this verse to say that if we allow the foundations of our nation and society to be destroyed there is nothing we can do. We can just throw up our hands in despair. That is definitely the wrong answer! If I had looked at the next verse, 4, I would have found the right answer! “The LORD is in His holy temple, The LORD'S throne is in heaven; His eyes behold, His eyelids test the sons of men.” We can remember that God is still on His throne and we can trust Him and do all we can by His grace to lay the foundations again! It is our responsibility to do all we can, to personally dig deep into the Rock, Jesus Christ, and build the foundations of truth and justice for the next generation. Don't Give Up!!!! Jesus still reigns!!!! God bless!

(Audio) David Eells - 10/19/22 Biblical Worship and Praise David Eells Vines Expository Dictionary says the Greek word “Worship" is: "to make obeisance, do reverence to" (from pros, "towards", and kuneo, "to kiss"), is the most frequent word rendered "to worship". It is used of an act of homage or reverence. In other words, worship is an act of love toward God. Father is looking for those who worship Him with all of their hearts: {Joh.4:21} Jesus saith unto her, Woman, believe me, the hour cometh, when neither in this mountain, nor in Jerusalem, shall ye worship the Father. {22} Ye worship that which ye know not: we worship that which we know; for salvation is from the Jews. {23} But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and truth: for such doth the Father seek to be his worshippers. {24} God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship in spirit and truth. There is much fake worship -- words without heart and spirit. True worship is with the mouth and heart and fear of God: {Isa.29:13} And the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw nigh unto me, and with their mouth and with their lips to honor me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear of me is a commandment of men which hath been taught them. (This is faking worship.) Worship is the way to bring God's presence: {Psa.100:1} Make a joyful noise unto Jehovah, all ye lands. {2} Serve Jehovah with gladness: Come before his presence with singing. {3} Know ye that Jehovah, he is God: It is he that hath made us, and we are his; We are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. {4} Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, And into his courts with praise: Give thanks unto him, and bless his name. {5} For Jehovah is good; His lovingkindness endureth for ever, And his faithfulness unto all generations. Worshipping brings health: Pro. 17:22 A cheerful heart is a good medicine (Hebrew: healing); But a broken spirit drieth up the bones. Worship brings freedom and freedom and humility should bring worship: {Act.16:25} But about midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns unto God, and the prisoners were listening to them; {26} and suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison-house were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened, and every one's bands were loosed. {Dan.4:37} Now I, Nebuchadnezzar, praise and extol and honor the King of heaven; for all his works are truth, and his ways justice; and those that walk in pride he is able to abase. Worship reveals our love and admiration for God and He knows it: {Psa.63:1} O God, thou art my God; earnestly will I seek thee: My soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee, In a dry and weary land, where no water is. (Praise comes from the Hebrew word, hallel, meaning to brag or boast about, like this in:) {2Sa.7:22} Wherefore thou art great, O Jehovah God: for there is none like thee, neither is there any God besides thee, according to all that we have heard with our ears. {1Ch.29:11} Thine, O Jehovah, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heavens and in the earth is thine ; thine is the kingdom, O Jehovah, and thou art exalted as head above all. Command your depressed soul to praise and worship God: {Psa.42:11} Why art thou cast down, O my soul? And why art thou disquieted within me? Hope thou in God; For I shall yet praise him, Who is the help of my countenance, and my God. Worship only the true God and no other thing as god: 1Jn 2:15  Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.   {Exo.20:2} I am Jehovah thy God, who brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. {3} Thou shalt have no other gods before me. {4} Thou shalt not make unto thee a graven image, nor any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: {5} thou shalt not bow down thyself unto them, nor serve them; for I Jehovah thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, upon the third and upon the fourth generation of them that hate me, {6} and showing lovingkindness unto thousands of them that love me and keep my commandments. Praise Him everywhere, with a new song, one that comes from your heart, and dancing and with all instruments: {Psa.149:1} Praise ye Jehovah. Sing unto Jehovah a new song, And his praise in the assembly of the saints. {2} Let Israel rejoice in him that made him: Let the children of Zion be joyful in their King. {3} Let them praise his name in the dance: Let them sing praises unto him with timbrel and harp. {4} For Jehovah taketh pleasure in his people: He will beautify the meek with salvation. {5} Let the saints exult in glory: Let them sing for joy upon their beds. {Psa. 150:1} Praise ye Jehovah. Praise God in his sanctuary: Praise him in the firmament of his power. {2} Praise him for his mighty acts: Praise him according to his excellent greatness. {3} Praise him with trumpet sound: Praise him with psaltery and harp. {4} Praise him with timbrel and dance: Praise him with stringed instruments and pipe. {5} Praise him with loud cymbals: Praise him with high sounding cymbals. {6} Let everything that hath breath praise Jehovah. Praise ye Jehovah. It is the will of the Lord to worship in songs and hymns: {Eph.5:17} Wherefore be ye not foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is. {18} And be not drunken with wine, wherein is riot, but be filled with the Spirit; 19 speaking one to another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody with your heart to the Lord; {20} giving thanks always for all things in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to God, even the Father. Worship in tongues and with understanding: {1Co.14:15} What is it then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will pray with the understanding also: I will sing with the spirit, and I will sing with the understanding also. Worship when you don't feel like it: {Hab.3:17} For though the fig-tree shall not flourish, Neither shall fruit be in the vines; The labor of the olive shall fail, And the fields shall yield no food; The flock shall be cut off from the fold, And there shall be no herd in the stalls: {18} Yet I will rejoice in Jehovah, I will joy in the God of my salvation. Praise (meaning "brag on") Him to everyone: {1Ch.16:23} Sing unto Jehovah, all the earth; Show forth his salvation from day to day. {24} Declare his glory among the nations, His marvellous works among all the peoples. {25} For great is Jehovah, and greatly to be praised: He also is to be feared above all gods. {26} For all the gods of the peoples are idols: But Jehovah made the heavens. {27} Honor and majesty are before him: Strength and gladness are in his place. {28} Ascribe unto Jehovah, ye kindreds of the peoples, Ascribe unto Jehovah glory and strength; {29} Ascribe unto Jehovah the glory due unto his name: Bring an offering, and come before him: Worship Jehovah in holy array. (Representing the righteous acts of the saints in Rev. 19.) {30} Tremble before him, all the earth: The world also is established that it cannot be moved. {31} Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice; And let them say among the nations, Jehovah reigneth. Worship and praise will conquer overwhelming enemies: {2Ch.20:17} Ye shall not need to fight in this battle: set yourselves, stand ye still, and see the salvation of Jehovah with you, O Judah and Jerusalem; fear not, nor be dismayed: to-morrow go out against them: for Jehovah is with you. {18} And Jehoshaphat bowed his head with his face to the ground; and all Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem fell down before Jehovah, worshipping Jehovah. {19} And the Levites, of the children of the Kohathites and of the children of the Korahites, stood up to praise Jehovah, the God of Israel, with an exceeding loud voice. {20} And they rose early in the morning, and went forth into the wilderness of Tekoa: and as they went forth, Jehoshaphat stood and said, Hear me, O Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem: believe in Jehovah your God, so shall ye be established; believe his prophets, so shall ye prosper. {21} And when he had taken counsel with the people, he appointed them that should sing unto Jehovah, and give praise in holy array, as they went out before the army, and say, Give thanks unto Jehovah; for his lovingkindness endureth for ever. {22} And when they began to sing and to praise, Jehovah set liers-in-wait against the children of Ammon, Moab, and mount Seir, that were come against Judah; and they were smitten. Worship to bind the enemy and their kings: {Psa.149:6} Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, And a two-edged sword in their hand; {7} To execute vengeance upon the nations, And punishments upon the peoples; {8} To bind their kings with chains, And their nobles with fetters of iron; {9} To execute upon them the judgment written: This honor have all his saints. Praise ye Jehovah. Because judgment and enemies are near, fear God and worship Him: {Rev.14:7} and he saith with a great voice, Fear God, and give him glory; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made the heaven and the earth and sea and fountains of waters. {Dan.3:16} Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego answered and said to the king, O Nebuchadnezzar, we have no need to answer thee in this matter. {17} If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace; and he will deliver us out of thy hand, O king. {18} But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up. {2Ki.17:38} and the covenant that I have made with you ye shall not forget; neither shall ye fear other gods: {39} but Jehovah your God shall ye fear; and he will deliver you out of the hand of all your enemies. We can clap and shout our triumph over enemies. Triumph is celebrating the victory before we see it: {Psa.47:1} Oh clap your hands, all ye peoples; Shout unto God with the voice of triumph. {Jos.6:20} So the people shouted, and the priests blew the trumpets; and it came to pass, when the people heard the sound of the trumpet, that the people shouted with a great shout, and the wall fell down flat, so that the people went up into the city, every man straight before him, and they took the city. We also celebrate the Lord's triumphs in worship: {Exo.15:20} And Miriam the prophetess, the sister of Aaron, took a timbrel in her hand; and all the women went out after her with timbrels and with dances. {21} And Miriam answered them, Sing ye to Jehovah, for he hath triumphed gloriously; The horse and his rider hath he thrown into the sea. We are taught to worship, praise and pray with hands lifted up to the Lord: {Psa.63:4} So will I bless thee while I live: I will lift up my hands in thy name. {1Ti.2:8} I desire therefore that the men pray in every place, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and disputing. {Lam.3:41} Let us lift up our heart with our hands unto God in the heavens. {Neh.8:6} and Ezra blessed Jehovah, the great God. And all the people answered, Amen, Amen, with the lifting up of their hands: and they bowed their heads, and worshipped Jehovah with their faces to the ground. Why lifting up hands? Offering our hands to the Lord for His works and to conquer His enemies: {Exo.17:9} And Moses said unto Joshua, Choose us out men, and go out, fight with Amalek: to-morrow I will stand on the top of the hill with the rod of God in my hand. {10} So Joshua did as Moses had said to him, and fought with Amalek: and Moses, Aaron, and Hur went up to the top of the hill. {11} And it came to pass, when Moses held up his hand, that Israel prevailed; and when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed. {12} But Moses' hands were heavy; and they took a stone, and put it under him, and he sat thereon; and Aaron and Hur stayed up his hands, the one on the one side, and the other on the other side; And his hands were steady until the going down of the sun. {13} And Joshua discomfited Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword. We raise our hands in praise when we grieve over sin or bondage to conquer these enemies: {1Ki.8:38} what prayer and supplication soever be made by any man, or by all thy people Israel, who shall know every man the plague of his own heart, and spread forth his hands toward this house: {2Ch.6:29} what prayer and supplication soever be made by any man, or by all thy people Israel, who shall know every man his own plague and his own sorrow, and shall spread forth his hands toward this house: {30} then hear thou from heaven thy dwelling-place and forgive, and render unto every man according to all his ways, whose heart thou knowest; (for thou, even thou only, knowest the hearts of the children of men.) We worship and praise to break the curse: {Exo.9:29} And Moses said unto him, As soon as I am gone out of the city, I will spread abroad my hands unto Jehovah; the thunders shall cease, neither shall there be any more hail; that thou mayest know that the earth is Jehovah's. Humbling oneself is a part of worship. {Rev.4:8} and the four living creatures, having each one of them six wings, are full of eyes round about and within: and they have no rest day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord God, the Almighty, who was and who is and who is to come. {9} And when the living creatures shall give glory and honor and thanks to him that sitteth on the throne, to him that liveth for ever and ever, {10} the four and twenty elders shall fall down before him that sitteth on the throne, and shall worship him that liveth for ever and ever, and shall cast their crowns before the throne, saying, {11} Worthy art thou, our Lord and our God, to receive the glory and the honor and the power: for thou didst create all things, and because of thy will they were, and were created. Again, Praise in Hebrew is "Hallal", meaning to brag on the Lord. This could be to give credit or ascribe to the Lord: {Psa.29:1} Ascribe unto Jehovah, O ye sons of the mighty, Ascribe unto Jehovah glory and strength. {2} Ascribe unto Jehovah the glory due unto his name; Worship Jehovah in holy array. Confession of sin and God's grace and mercy in worship is needed for His favor. It's good to confess all sins before a worship and praise session: {Neh.9:1} Now in the twenty and fourth day of this month the children of Israel were assembled with fasting, and with sackcloth, and earth upon them. {2} And the seed of Israel separated themselves from all foreigners, and stood and confessed their sins, and the iniquities of their fathers. {3} And they stood up in their place, and read in the book of the law of Jehovah their God a fourth part of the day; and another fourth part they confessed, and worshipped Jehovah their God. {4} Then stood up upon the stairs of the Levites, … [and] said, Stand up and bless Jehovah your God from everlasting to everlasting; and blessed be thy glorious name, which is exalted above all blessing and praise. {6} Thou art Jehovah, even thou alone; thou hast made heaven, the heaven of heavens, with all their host, the earth and all things that are thereon, the seas and all that is in them, and thou preservest them all; and the host of heaven worshippeth thee. An offering of service is worship: {Heb.12:28} Wherefore, receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us have grace, whereby we may offer service (sometimes translated as worship) well-pleasing to God with reverence and awe: {29} for our God is a consuming fire. {Rom.12:1} I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service (sometimes translated as worship). {2} And be not fashioned according to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God. Notice that worship should be a sacrifice of flesh: Worship is an active response to the character, words and actions of God, initiated by His revelation and enabled by His redemption, whereby the mind is transformed (e.g. belief, repentance), the heart is renewed (e.g. love, trust), and actions are surrendered (e.g. obedience, service), all in accordance with His will and in order to declare His infinite worthiness. In both Hebrew and Greek, there are two categories of words for worship. The first is about body language that demonstrates respect and submission; to bow down, to kneel, to prostrate oneself. The second is about doing something for God that demonstrates sacrifice and obedience; to offer, to serve.   Biblical words for worship in Hebrew shâchâh Strong's Concordance #7812 This term literally means to depress or prostrate oneself, and is translated in the King James Version of the Old Testament as "worship" (100 times), "bow down" (54 times), "do obeisance" (9 times), "do reverence" (5 times), "fall down" (Psa 72:11; Isa 45:14;), "crouch" (1 Sam 2:36), "humbly beseech" (2 Sam 16:4), or "make to stoop" (Pro 12:25). âbad Strong's Concordance #5647 This term literally means to work in any sense, but by implication to serve or enslave. It is used more than 250 times in the Old Testament, most often translated as "serve" and 31 times in conjunction with shâchâh (see above). However, three times the translators of the ESV chose the word "worship" (2 Sam 15:8; Psa 102:22; Isa 19:21). Some foolishly believe that self-control prohibits freedom to worship in a Biblical way. But self-control stops the flesh from hindering freedom to worship. The flesh does not want to worship, therefore you must buffet it: {1Co.9:24} Know ye not that they that run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? Even so run; that ye may attain. {25} And every man that striveth in the games exerciseth self-control in all things. Now they do it to receive a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible. {26} I therefore so run, as not uncertainly; so fight I, as not beating the air: {27} but I buffet my body, and bring it into bondage: lest by any means, after that I have preached to others, I myself should be rejected. Actions are surrendered in worship to the Holy Spirit but the flesh doesn't like to worship. At a Pentecostal-type church in Louisiana, the congregation would run around the auditorium and praise the Lord and shout to the Lord with great freedom. Sometimes the whole church would be running around praising the Lord. Now I'm not making any laws here for an an order of worship. A lot of people told me the church was carnal because they did that in the flesh.   When I went there just to see what was going on, I had the distinct impression that the Lord wanted me to go against my flesh and "buffet my body", and my shyness, and to crucify it. It didn't matter to me that they might not begin in the Spirit, it mattered that they would crucify their flesh, and I wouldn't. It is of the Spirit that we put to death our flesh which doesn't want to worship God boldly. They had a couple of rooms in that building, and all the men would go in one room, and all the women in the other room, and they would turn down all the lights. Then they would run up and down in the room, praising and worshiping the Lord. I went in there and I just decided I was going to put my flesh to death and I started running and jumping up and down with them praising the Lord. I discovered that it was good for me, because even though I didn't start it in the Spirit, I was doing it against the flesh. It was really a blessing to me for it freed me up to not worry what others thought. In another Pentecostal Church I experienced freedom to worship. I saw some tremendous miracles there. In their big auditorium, this guy jumped up on the front pew and took off running on the backs of the pews with his eyes closed. He ran the length of the auditorium as fast as he could, from pew to pew, with his eyes closed. There was a balcony in the back and I was sitting right where the balcony came down, so I saw that his eyes were solidly closed. He ran up to the balcony and just before he bashed his head into it, he gracefully ducked and kept on running. That could only have been done in the Spirit. Then there was released in the church a wave of excitement and freedom and joy in worship. They had another lady who was moved to dance going backwards. She would dance as she intermittently bowed down all the way to the floor, running backwards, not seeing where she was going. She would run backwards down the stairs of the choir, all the way around the auditorium, never bumping into a thing, and then all the way back up. That was in the Spirit. I saw people jump out of the choir loft, land on the other side of the altar, and run at top speed around the corners of the pews without ever slowing down. The whole congregation would just bust loose in praise when somebody would do that. It reminded me a David dancing before the Lord in worship. When the Spirit hit one man, he'd jump off the choir loft, clearing  the altar in one leap, and take off running when he landed on the floor. I would watch him running down one side, and by the time I turned my head the other way, he was coming up the other side. One day I saw him run down the isle with his eyes closed, jump over a small child who was playing in the aisle. He never broke stride and kept on running. That's definitely what we would call "in the Spirit". It just excited everyone in the building to worship and praise the Lord. We need to humble ourselves; we need to come against our flesh so that we won't worry about what other people around us are thinking. God expects us to worship Him in front of other people, just as this verse says. (Mat.10:32) Every one therefore who shall confess me before men, him will I also confess before my Father who is in heaven. We need to break loose in the Spirit and worship. (Joh.4:23) But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and truth: for such doth the Father seek to be his worshippers. (24) God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship in spirit and truth. As we have seen, if you start worshipping freely, it will make it easier for the other person to do it, too. I'm not necessarily talking about jumping pews, but you have to start going against your flesh. (Rom.8:6) For the mind of the flesh is death; but the mind of the Spirit is life and peace: (7) because the mind of the flesh is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can it be: (8) and they that are in the flesh cannot please God. Your flesh is the enemy of God; it is the oppressor, you have to put it to death. David's wife chastised him for worshipping in dance but he rebuked her. We have seen Jesus, the Holy Spirit in the form of fire, and big angels join us in worship and study here at UBM. We have seen Jesus lay hands on people more than once when we were worshipping. When I was young in the Lord, outside LSU College campus we had a place of Bible study and worship for the students. I have personally witnessed the glory cloud of the Lord's presence enter from the center of the room there when the people were lost in worship. {Exo. 33:9} And it came to pass, when Moses entered into the Tent, the pillar of cloud descended, and stood at the door of the Tent: and Jehovah spake with Moses. {10} And all the people saw the pillar of cloud stand at the door of the Tent: and all the people rose up and worshipped, every man at his tent door. Hallel-ujah is translated Praise Ye the Lord but this is a command and doing praise is more than repeating this command. Lets look at this. As we saw, praise is the Hebrew word Hallel: meaning: To brag or boast about… and is applied to stating who the Lord is with all His attributes and His works for us which are finished.  We who see the end from the beginning and walk by faith should praise Him for what we dont yet see in the physical realm. Psa 149:1-9  Praise ye Jehovah is from “Hallelujah", so how does he want us to praise Him? Sing unto Jehovah a new song, And his praise in the assembly of the saints. 2 Let Israel rejoice in him that made  him: Let the children of Zion be joyful in their King. 3 Let them praise his name in the dance: Let them sing praises unto him with timbrel and harp. 4 For Jehovah taketh pleasure in his people: He will beautify the meek with salvation. 5 Let the saints exult in glory: Let them sing for joy upon their beds. 6 Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, And a two-edged sword in their hand; Praise defeats the enemy. 7 To execute vengeance upon the nations, And punishments upon the peoples; 8 To bind their kings with chains, And their nobles with fetters of iron; 9 To execute upon them the judgment written: This honor have all his saints. Praise ye Jehovah. - So Hallelujah! Let us Praise the Lord for draining the swamp in Church and Government. Praise defeats the enemy. Psa 8:2-6 Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou established strength, (In Mat 21:16 strength is replaced with praise.)  Because of thine adversaries, That thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger. ... 6 Thou makest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; Thou hast put all things under his feet:  As also says Hebrews but the people don't believe it with their heart. Look, Jesus is saying, “establishing strength” is by perfected praise. And what was this perfected praise that was directed at Jesus? Hosanna!  This means in Hebrew: “Save we pray”. We have discovered that “save” in the Greek is “sozo” and means much more than people know. It is used of being saved, being healed, being delivered from demons, delivered from catatrophes, etc. The noun “Soteria” means all my needs supplied like a little child. So “Hosanna” is “perfect praise” that acknowledges Jesus as the saviour in all things and it establishes His strength to save. Here are verses we've recently received in our morning meeting by faith at random: Psa 27:1-6 A Psalm of David. Jehovah is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear? Jehovah is the strength of my life; Of whom shall I be afraid? 2 When evil-doers came upon me to eat up my flesh, Even mine adversaries and my foes, they stumbled and fell. As Psa 149 shows praise conquers our enemies, spiritual and physical. 3 Though a host should encamp against me, My heart shall not fear: Though war should rise against me, Even then will I be confident. Jehoshaphat's army followed the praisers into battle against 3 armies which fell before them without a weapon raised. 4 One thing have I asked of Jehovah, that will I seek after: That I may dwell in the house of Jehovah all the days of my life, To behold the beauty of Jehovah, And to inquire in his temple. 5 For in the day of trouble he will keep me secretly in his pavilion: In the covert of his tabernacle will he hide me; He will lift me up upon a rock. Father will protect and hide us from our enemies. 6 And now shall my head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me; And I will offer in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto Jehovah. And Psa 22:1-5 A Psalm of David. My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? Why art thou so far from helping me, and from the words of my groaning? 2 O my God, I cry in the daytime,  but thou answerest not; And in the night season, and am not silent. 3 But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel. 4 Our fathers trusted in thee: They trusted, and thou didst deliver them. 5 They cried unto thee, and were delivered: They trusted in thee, and were not put to shame. So the Lord inhabits our praises to deliver us from our enemies, spiritual and physical. Think about that! PTL! Psa 22:22-31 I will declare thy name unto my brethren: In the midst of the assembly will I praise thee. 23 Ye that fear Jehovah, praise him; All ye the seed of Jacob, glorify him; And stand in awe of him, all ye the seed of Israel. Notice: We glorify Him by declaring His name in praise. Name in Hebrew and Greek means nature, character and authority. And we praise Him like this “in the midst of the assembly”, which is the easiest place to praise Him. When we look at scripture we see they declared the Word, who is Jesus, to the greater assembly of the lost sheep of Israel also, and then to the lost world of Gentiles. We must do the same. It is a precedent in scripture. Did you see the Hezekiah Walker video where they praised God on the streets and bystanders joined in? Remember our missionaries in prayer and warfare who declare His salvation in the midst of hateful people. Continuing with Psa 22:24 For he hath not despised nor abhorred the affliction of the afflicted; Neither hath he hid his face from him; But when he cried unto him, he heard. 25 Of thee cometh my praise in the great assembly: I will pay my vows before them that fear him. 26 The meek shall eat and be satisfied; They shall praise Jehovah that seek after him: Let your heart live for ever. 27 All the ends of the earth shall remember and turn unto Jehovah; And all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before thee. 28 For the kingdom is Jehovah's; And he is the ruler over the nations. So God is big enough to bring this to pass. 29 All the fat ones of the earth shall eat and worship: All they that go down to the dust shall bow before him, Even he that cannot keep his soul alive. 30 A seed shall serve him; It shall be told of the Lord unto the next generation. 31 They shall come and shall declare his righteousness Unto a people that shall be born, that he hath done it.  And shall we not do the same? 1Ch 16:35  And say ye, Save us, O God of our salvation, And gather us together and deliver us from the nations, To give thanks unto thy holy name, And to triumph in thy praise.  Triumph means to celebrate the victory and you can do this by faith before you see the victory. Do you know what a scriptural precedent is? It means if they did it in the New Testament you have a precedent and you should do it too. Did God heal or deliver you? Give Him praise and the people will do the same. Luk 18:43  And immediately he received his sight, and followed him, glorifying God: and all the people, when they saw it, gave praise unto God. You can share your testimonies and others will get faith. Luk 19:37  And as he was now drawing nigh, even at the descent of the mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works which they had seen.  Shall we do the same! Rom 15:9  and that the Gentiles might glorify God for his mercy; as it is written, Therefore will I give praise unto thee among the Gentiles, And sing unto thy name…. 11  And again, Praise the Lord, all ye Gentiles; And let all the peoples praise him. Heb 13:15  Through him then let us offer up a sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of lips which make confession to his name. Jas 5:13  Is any among you suffering? let him pray. Is any cheerful? let him sing praise. Rev 19:5  And a voice came forth from the throne, saying, Give praise to our God, all ye his servants, ye that fear him, the small and the great. Lets do it!    Vision of the Power of Praise Matt Ezell - 9/9/22 I wanted to share a vision I had of Chuc sitting next to Matt Stewart. (This came to pass. After this dream when we came together for our meeting, Chuc and Matt were sitting together; which was not the usual seating arrangement. So when I shared this dream in our meeting, everyone laughed because that is exactly how it happened.) I couldn't tell the exact location but they were up in front leading worship. (This is talking of leading worship to the larger internet assembly.) Chuc was plugging in a common wire to a capacitor. Then the vision ended. In the field of heating and air capacitors are used to give power to the compressor and fan of an air conditioning unit. They give the initial boost for the compressor and fan to start and then they help them maintain that power so that it will continue to run. The common wire is what connects the capacitor to the main power source of the unit. I immediately understood what the Lord was saying, which is what He's been showing us, in that we would be greatly empowered through our worship of Him. I sought a verse concerning this vision and got Psalm 105:24, He increased His people greatly, And made them stronger than their enemies. - Praise the Lord! Today if you will receive your salvation, healing, deliverance and provision claim it and speak it out of your mouth and praise Him for it and you will have it according to our Jesus. Mar 11:23-24 Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou taken up and cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that what he saith cometh to pass; he shall have it. 24 Therefore I say unto you, All things whatsoever ye pray and ask for, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.   Select Language Afrikaans Albanian Amharic Arabic Armenian Assamese Aymara Azerbaijani Bambara Basque Belarusian Bengali Bhojpuri Bosnian Bulgarian Catalan Cebuano Chichewa Chinese (Simplified) Chinese (Traditional) Corsican Croatian Czech Danish Dhivehi Dogri Dutch Esperanto Estonian Ewe Filipino Finnish French Frisian Galician Georgian German Greek Guarani Gujarati Haitian Creole Hausa Hawaiian Hebrew Hindi Hmong Hungarian Icelandic Igbo Ilocano Indonesian Irish Italian Japanese Javanese Kannada Kazakh Khmer Kinyarwanda Konkani Korean Krio Kurdish (Kurmanji) Kurdish (Sorani) Kyrgyz Lao Latin Latvian Lingala Lithuanian Luganda Luxembourgish Macedonian Maithili Malagasy Malay Malayalam Maltese Maori Marathi Meiteilon (Manipuri) Mizo Mongolian Myanmar (Burmese) Nepali Norwegian Odia (Oriya) Oromo Pashto Persian Polish Portuguese Punjabi Quechua Romanian Russian Samoan Sanskrit Scots Gaelic Sepedi Serbian Sesotho Shona Sindhi Sinhala Slovak Slovenian Somali Spanish Sundanese Swahili Swedish Tajik Tamil Tatar Telugu Thai Tigrinya Tsonga Turkish Turkmen Twi Ukrainian Urdu Uyghur Uzbek Vietnamese Welsh Xhosa Yiddish Yoruba Zulu Powered by Translate Printer-friendly version

What Does the Bible Really Teach about Everything? (Kevin DeYoung Essay)

What Does the Bible Really Teach about Everything?  By Kevin DeYoungTale as old as Time (and Older Still) The first person we meet in the Bible is God (Gen. 1:1). And the first thing we see about this God is that he is before all things (cf. Ps. 90:1-2). God is self-existent, independent, without beginning or end, without equal, the Creator God distinct from his creation, a holy and unrivaled God-eternal, infinite, and, in his essence, unlike anything or anyone that ever was, is, or will be. This is the God we first meet in the first verse of the first book of the Bible.And this is the God who created all things (Neh. 9:6; Acts 14:15; 17:24), He created heaven and what is in it, the earth and what is in it, and the sea and what is in it (Rev. 10:6). What's more, he made men and women as the crown of his creation, making them in his image and after his likeness (Gen. 1:26). He created them to rule and to reproduce and to have a relationship with him (Gen. 1:26-28; cf. 3:8).But the first man and the first woman disobeyed God's command. They listened to the Slithering One as he tempted them to doubt the clarity and goodness of God's word (Gen. 3:1-5). They took a bite from the forbidden fruit, and the fruit bit back. When sin entered the world, it was not just a fall; it was a curse. The man, the woman, the Serpent, the ground—all felt the sting of the curse so that "not the way things are supposed to be” became "the way things are." In just retribution for sin, God drove the man and the woman from the garden and placed an angel to guard the way to the tree of life (Gen. 3:24). Their heaven on earth was no more, at least not until God would bring heaven back to earth (Gen. 3:15). The central plotline of the story of Scripture was set in motion: a holy God making a way to dwell in the midst of an unholy people.Space does not permit a full retelling of this story, but one only has to look at the Promised Land or the temple to see the same narrative carrying forward. The Promised Land was a type of Eden, and Eden was a foreshadowing of the Promised Land. God describes the creation of Israel in the same way he describes the creation of the heavens and the earth (Jer. 4:23-26; 27:5). The boundaries of Eden and the boundaries of Canaan are similar (Gen. 2:10-14; 15:18). When Jacob comes back from the east to enter Canaan, he is met by an angel (Gen. 32:22-32)—an allusion to the angel placed at the entrance to Eden. Joshua likewise encounters a heavenly guardian when approaching the Promised Land by way of Jericho (osh. 5:13-15).Keep reading HERE Connect with me at kory.cunningham@gmail.com.

This episode carries content warnings for mentions of death, poison, discussion of bodily fluids, and slavery. With the Bontive Valley and the Shale Belt behind them, Millennium Break's first arrivals on Palisade find themselves facing their most delicate situation yet. In the arid stretches beyond the Curtain's reach, there rests a fortress named Joyous Guard. Inside lives the previous imperial ruler of this world: Perpetual Lustre, the Duke of Glass. Unwilling to cede the power he claimed to “protect” on behalf of the long-absent Princept, the Duke now lives in exile, attended to by an unctuous court and served by the supposedly leashed “descendents” of Divines known as Delegates. But with Millennium Break newly arrived, for how much longer will this petty tyrant yet cast his shadow over the desert? This week on the Road to PALISADE: Wagon Wheel Pt. 3 Records Recovered from the Divine, Arbitrage Factions The Curtain of Divinity: For generations, the Curtain of Divinity operated in the shadows of the Principality, partly as intelligence agency, partly as shadow government. After the events on Partizan, they were dragged into the daylight, and served as one of the two ruling factions of the whole Principality. But as the years progressed, and Cynosure Whitestar-Kesh, the Peaceful Princept, grew in confidence and skill, the group began a steady transformation and the spies began to return to the shadows… New Earth Hegemony: Long since lost to history, the NEH once claimed the entire center sphere of the Galaxy as their home. Characterized by a neoliberal policies and the deep belief in technological solutions, the nation was key to the slow destruction of the ancient Divine Fleet, a predecessor to the Divine Free States (itself half of the Divine Principality's founding membership).  The Fabreal Duchy: When the nascent Divine Principality left Palisade behind 5000 years ago, they left behind the Fabreal Duchy. At the time, the Duchy was an extension of the Twilight Mirage's technologically powerful artist-kingdom, the Crown of Glass. Whether it was this connection or something else, the Princept at the time believed them to be ideal candidates to remain behind and tend to the Palisade in the Principality's absence.  In time though, these “custodians” refashioned themselves as crystalline royals—quite literally. The bodies of the royals and aristocrats of the duchy are made of strange glass-like material, and their selfhood is actually contained in a colorful oil—produced and maintained by the Divine Unction, which flows through their vessels.  In time, the Duchy expanded its grasp and became the largest single power on the planet. Its peerage—a collection of baronesses, counts, and other nobles who serve under the Duke's whims—are protected by their Saints, a chivalric order of knights who pilot hollows of smaller design than those of the Principality, and served by a large number of  “Delegates.” enslaved slivers from DIvines long since vanished.  Before the Principality arrived on Palisade again, Perpetual Lustre, the Duke of Glass led the duchy. But when he refused to submit to the will of the newly arrived Viceroy, his vassals saw opportunity and betrayed him.  Now he lives exiled at the edge of the desert.   Persons Ce Gull (they/he): A scout who grew up on a Nidean outpost and joined up with Millennium Break after their home was destroyed by Stel Orio.

The inhabitants of the Shale Belt, the secular and technologically-minded Concretists, are descendants of those colonists, and chose to remain on Palisade rather than join the nascent Divine Principality when it left 5000 years ago. Over the years, not only did they develop new, more-integrated respiratory cybernetics as medical aids, they also built bonds with nearby regions to ensure that the materials they needed to breathe more comfortably would be integrated into local infrastructure. Braunton: A run down casino town in the Shale Belt, near to the border with the Bontive Valley. Articles BigStar★: A large wagon drawn by a pair of massive slowderbikes. Delegates: Oh what a fun and failed experiment these pathetic beings are. In its earliest days, before the Principality learned how to use Gumption's unique talents to keep Divines from finding permanent death, they attempted instead to carve us down into little slivers of ourselves. Did they think they were slicing butter, I wonder? Did they not understand that we are not content but process? Not numbers, but formula? That we exist in a sort of algorithmic concentrate, and that to shave away a part drastically changes the whole that is produced by our very being? Apparently not, since they tried this inevitable mistake anyway.  These “Delegates” are the result, and they are not charmless, despite being abominations. They carry some of our cleverness and commitment and power in those ugly, humanoid frames, and bear (I admit) some resemblance to the Divines from which they were, in their strange way, spawned. Their names reflect this: Gentle Influence, Cruel Emphasis, Limited Dissent—and yes, they are thus tempered forms of what the Divine once was.  There will, of course, never be a “Moderate Arbitrage” or any such nonsense, I will assure this. Miscellany Kalmeria Particle: A so-called miracle of modern science, providing those that master it power akin to what was wielded before the Perennial Wave. Like most miracles, there is an explanation, but most people have neither the knowledge of nor interest in what it really is or where it came from.

The members of Millenium Break continue to investigate the world of Palisade, trying to build relationships across the communities of Eversin and Braunton. In the former, they learn that offers of direct help may not always be easily accepted by those in the sights of an occupation. In the latter, they learn that direct occupation is not always necessary for an empire's reach to be felt. And in both, they come to understand the importance of local culture (basketball) and social ritual (potluck dinner) when it comes to building a movement.  This week on the Road to PALISADE: Wagon Wheel Pt. 2 Records Recovered from the Divine, Arbitrage Factions The Curtain of Divinity: For generations, the Curtain of Divinity operated in the shadows of the Principality, partly as intelligence agency, partly as shadow government.

In this episode, I speak with the poet, critic, and biographer Paul Mariani, professor emeritus at Boston College. We discuss his new book, All that Will be New and his biography of Robert Lowell, The Lost Puritan. We discuss Lowell's life, poetry, and his struggle with the permanent things: religion, marriage, art, family. Given the influence of Hopkins on his early poems, I think this episode pairs well with episode 38 with Nick Ripatrazone. As always, I hope you enjoy our conversation. Paul Mariani is the University Professor of English emeritus at Boston College. He is the author of twenty books, including biographies of William Carlos Williams, John Berryman, Robert Lowell, Hart Crane, Gerard Manley Hopkins, and Wallace Stevens. He has published nine volumes of poetry: All That Will New, Ordinary Time, Epitaphs for the Journey, Deaths & Transfigurations, The Great Wheel, Salvage Operations: New & Selected Poems, Prime Mover, Crossing Cocytus, and Timing Devices. He is also the author of the spiritual memoir, Thirty Days: On Retreat with the Exercises of St. Ignatius and The Mystery of It All: The Vocation of Poetry in the Twilight of Modernity. His awards include fellowships from the Guggenheim and the NEA and NEH. In September 2019, he was awarded the inaugural Flannery O'Connor Lifetime Achievement Award from the Catholic Imagination Conference at Loyola University, Chicago. Jennifer Frey is an associate professor of philosophy and Peter and Bonnie McCausland Faculty Fellow at the University of South Carolina. She is also a fellow of the Institute for Human Ecology at the Catholic University of America and the Word on Fire Institute.
