Build Your House On The Rock By: Pastor Dr. Charles Novak

When we look at our lives, I wonder if we look at them as building a house. We are definitely building a life, but when you stop to think about it, our selves, our lives, our bodies are the temple of God, correct?, we see this in (I Corinthians Chapter 6 Verses 19 And 20 English Standard Version) “Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.” So this in essence shows that we are building a house, a house for God within our our humans bodies. Our own human bodies, even just saying that makes me think how quick we are to assume that we belong to our selves.

God made us, as we read in (Genesis Chapter 1 Verses 26 And 27 English Standard Version) “Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth." So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.” So we see that we are not our own, but that we belong to God, God the Father, Jehovah, Lord, Creator, also to His Son Jesus, the Christ, and just the same to the Holy Spirit, hence we belong to the Godhead. And not only because God Himself made us, as if there should be any other reason that needs to be given, because there is not.

But there is another reason available in the Bible as to why we belong to God, and that is that we were bought at a price, as we just read above in I Corinthians Chapter 6 Verse 20. This price that was paid for us, as we all know goes well beyond the typical financial exchange in any purchase you or I for that matter, have ever made. How did Jesus pay for us? We were bought with His blood the blood that Jesus Shed for us on the Cross, at Calvary, this we read in (Galatians Chapter 3 Verses 13 Through 15 New Life Version) “Christ bought us with His blood and made us free from the Law. In that way, the Law could not punish us. Christ did this by carrying the load and by being punished instead of us. It is written, “Anyone who hangs on a cross is hated and punished.” Because of the price Christ Jesus paid, the good things that came to Abraham might come to the people who are not Jews. And by putting our trust in Christ, we receive the Holy Spirit He has promised. Christian brothers, let me show you what this means. If two men agree to something and sign their names on a paper promising to stay true to what they agree, it cannot be changed.”

Have we yet even began to realize that when Jesus bought us with His blood on the Cross at Calvary, that He became a curse for us? He literally because a curse for us, this we read in (Galatians Chapter 3 Verse 13 English Standard Version) “Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us—for it is written, "Cursed is everyone who is hanged on a tree" That cannot be so hard to understand, consider it. Jesus “all” at “once”, took “all” sin for “all” mankind when He died on the Cross at Calvary. At this ultimate sacrifice made by the Son of God Himself, Jesus taking every sin ever committed, and bearing the burden for them, the burden of death, I don't know about you, but anyone who would have to go through that, I would also call them cursed.

Jesus literately went from being a curse, to being a cure, but only a cure, but being “the” cure, the cure for all of us, for all mankind. This we read specifically in (Romans Chapter 5 Verses 12 Through 21 Bible In Basic English) “For this reason, as through one man sin came into the world, and death because of sin, and so death came to all men, because all have done evil: Because, till the law came, sin was in existence, but sin is not put to the account of anyone when there is no law to be broken. But still death had power from Adam till Moses, even over those who had not done wrong like Adam, who is a picture of him who was to come. But the free giving of God is not like the wrongdoing of man. For if, by the wrongdoing of one man death came to numbers of men, much more did the grace of God, and the free giving by the grace of one man, Jesus Christ, come to men. And the free giving has not the same effect as the sin of one: for the effect of one man's sin was punishment by the decision of God, but the free giving had power to give righteousness to wrongdoers in great number.

For, if by the wrongdoing of one, death was ruling through the one, much more will those to whom has come the wealth of grace and the giving of righteousness, be ruling in life through the one, even Jesus Christ. So then, as the effect of one act of wrongdoing was that punishment came on all men, even so the effect of one act of righteousness was righteousness of life for all men. Because, as numbers of men became sinners through the wrongdoing of one man, even so will great numbers get righteousness through the keeping of the word of God by one man. And the law came in addition, to make wrongdoing worse; but where there was much sin, there was much more grace: That, as sin had power in death, so grace might have power through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

For all that God has Made, for all that Jesus has paid, for all of the Infallible Words of God, we see that it is best to build your house, your living house, that dwells inside, and also your home on the rock, that is the rock of Salvation, our Lord, our Messiah, Jesus, the Son of God, Jesus, the Christ. Let us close by reading (Mathew Chapter 7 Verses 24 Through 27 English Standard Version) “"Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock. And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell, and great was the fall of it."

Is it any wonder why in the next two verses they speak as they do. (Mathew Chapter 7 Verses 28 And 29 English Standard Version) “And when Jesus finished these sayings, the crowds were astonished at his teaching, for he was teaching them as one who had authority, and not as their scribes.”

The Word of God as given to me by our Lord, so others may have a better understanding of God, or come to a new knowledge of God. I take no glory for this writing, it was given to me, and to you as a gift from God, as is our lives, and all that is in them. I thank you Great God in Heaven for all the Gifts, and Promises, that come to us one and all. Everything in you,, shows all the love that you have for us, thanks be to God, Glory to God in the Highest. All the Praise, and Honor, and Glory to you, our most high Heavenly Father, Amen.

Many Times We Read In The Bible- He Who Is Wise. A Word To The True Seeker Of The Presence Of The Lord

 Many Times We Read In The Bible- He Who Is Wise. A Word To The True Seeker Of The Presence Of The Lord

Hos 14:9 Who is wise, that he may understand these things? prudent, that he may know them? for the ways of Jehovah are right, and the just shall walk in them; but transgressors shall fall therein.

Barnes:

Hosea 14:9

Who is wise and he shall understand these things? - The prophet says this, not of the words in which he had spoken, but of the substance. He does not mean that his style was obscure, or that he had delivered the message of God in a way difficult to be understood. This would have been to fail of his object. Nor does he mean that human acuteness is the key to the things of God. He means that those only of a certain character, those “wise,” through God, unto God, will understand the things of God. So the Psalmist, having related some of God’s varied chastenings, mercies and judgments, sums up, “Whoso is wise and will observe these things, even they shall understand the loving kindness of the Lord” Psa_107:43. So Asaph says that God’s dealings with the good and bad in this life were “too hard” for him to “understand, until” he “went into the sanctuary of God;” then “understood” he “their end” Psa_73:16-17.

In like way Daniel, at the close of his prophecy, sums up the account of a sifting-time, “Many shall be purified and made white and tried, and the wicked shall do wickedly; and none of the wicked shall understand, but the wise shall understand” Dan_12:10. As these say that the wise alone understand the actual dealings of God with man, so Hosea says, that the wise alone would understand what he had set forth of the mercy and severity of God, of His love for man, His desire to pardon, His unwillingness that any should perish, His longing for our repentance, His store of mercies in Christ, His gifts of grace and His free eternal love, and yet His rejection of all half-service and His final rejection of the impenitent. “Who is wise?” “The word “who” is always taken, not for what is impossible, but for what is difficult.” So Isaiah saith, “Who hath believed our report, and to whom is the Arm of the Lord revealed?” Isa_53:1.

For the ways of the Lord are right - If in the word, “ways,” the figure is still preserved, the prophet speaks of the “ways,” as “direct and straight;” without a figure, as “just and upright.”
The ways of the Lord - Are, what we, by a like figure, call “the ‘course’ of His providence;” of which Scripture says, “His ways are judgment” Deu_32:4; Dan_4:37; “God, His ways are perfect” Psa_18:30; “the Lord is righteous in all His ways, and holy in all His works” Psa_145:17; “Thy way is in the sea, and Thy paths in the great waters, and Thy footsteps are not known” Psa_77:19; “lo, these are parts of His ways, but how little a portion is heard of Him, and the thunder of His power who can understand?” Job_26:14; “who hath enjoined Him His way, and who can say, Thou hast wrought iniquity?” Job_36:23. These “ways of God” include His ordering for us, in His eternal wisdom, that course of life, which leads most directly to Himself. They include, then, all God’s commandments, precepts, counsels, His whole moral law, as well as His separate purpose for each of us. In the one way, they are God’s ways toward us; in the other they are God’s ways for us.


The just shall walk in them - God reveals His ways to us, not that we may know them only, but that we may do them. “The end of moral science is not knowledge, but practice,” said the Pagan philosopher . But the life of grace is a life of progress. The word, “way,” implies not continuance only, but advance. He does not say,” they shall “stand” in God’s ways,” but “they shall walk in them.” They shall go on in them “upright, safe, and secure, in “great peace” and with “nothing whereat to stumble” . In God’s ways there is no stumbling block, and they who walk in them, are free from those of which other ways are full. Whereas, out of God’s ways, all paths are tangled, uneven, slippery, devious, full of snares and pitfalls, God maketh His “way straight,” a royal highway, smooth, even, direct unto Himself.

Gill:

It suggests as if there were but few such wise persons, and that they are the only wise men that do know and understand these things; and all others are but fools, let them be thought as wise as they will:


Henry:

Concerning every one that hears and reads the words of the prophecy of this book (Hos_14:9): Who is wise? and he shall understand these things. Perhaps the prophet was wont to conclude that sermons he preached with these words, and now he closes with them the whole book, in which he has committed to writing some fragments of the many sermons he had preached. Observe,

1. The character of those that do profit by the truths he delivered: Who is wise and prudent? He shall understand these things, he shall know them. Those that set themselves to understand and know these things thereby make it to appear that they are truly wise and prudent, and will thereby be made more so; and, if any do not understand and know them, it is because they are foolish and unwise. Those that are wise in the doing of their duty, that are prudent in practical religion, are most likely to know and understand both the truths and providences of God, which are a mystery to others, Joh_7:17. The secret of the Lord is with those that fear him,




Psa 107:43 Whoso is wise will give heed to these things; And they will consider the lovingkindnesses of Jeh

Dan 12:10 Many shall purify themselves, and make themselves white, and be refined; but the wicked shall do wickedly; and none of the wicked shall understand; but they that are wise shall understand.

Rev 13:18 Here is wisdom. He that hath understanding, let him count the number of the beast; for it is the number of a man: and his number is Six hundred and sixty and six.

Dear- remnat bride, this is meat, iot is amessage for the hungry, thehuger for the presence of the lord, if you desier this more than anything, this message is for you.

It takes time, learning, obedience, being a real christian, seeking the lord with all your heart , mind and soul, praying in the prayer closet, reading the word, and getting wisdom, revelation, insight. I have always love the ver. The secret of the Lord is with those that fear him.

Note; those who fear Him, a holy Godly fear, we must have a healthy, balance fear of the lord, not as one that is ready to strike us down when we fall, or sin, he lonvingly restores us. The fear of the lord is akin to, we are to work out our OWN salvation with fear and trembling.

The lord wants to give you today deep revelation, insults to the word, wisdom to understand what so called believers and UN-believers do not, as Jesus said, I speak in parables that they may not understand, but to you is given understanding and the keys to the kingdom.

That key is what opens the unseen, it gives us faith, trust, hope, we come to the lord in reverent respect, that is what the fear of the lord is, understanding he is sovereign, and mighty, the lord of the seven thunders, the lord that raises anything that is dead. If we could grasp the power and reality of who our lord is, his character and all he is, it would settle a worried heart in a blink of an eye, this is why we must come to him, so we can learn of his tender mercy and loving-kindness.

Come to his presence as a humble servant, nothing else, read the word, pause, SELA, ask the lord via the holy spirit to help you understand, to get your own Rhema revelation from a verse or two. The lord wants, desires, to give this to his bride, all we need to do, is commit to the time, walk the walk of faith daily, not being a P.T. Christian. I have said before, the days of being a P.T. Christian are over, it is time to be a F.T. Christian, separate from the world, sanctified, holy , seeking grace in humility, and we will have what the lord wants to give, we will clearly understand great mysteries, and we will have a direct word from the lord concerning our walk and life.

Think on this. P.T. or F.T. the line is drawn in the sand, time to make your stand.

Kept In Custody-Posted by Pastor Bob

Kept in Custody


Gal 3:23-25 But before faith came, we were kept in custody under the law, being shut up to the faith which was later to be revealed. (24) Therefore the Law has become our tutor to lead us to Christ, so that we may be justified by faith. (25) But now that faith has come, we are no longer under a tutor.


I was actually studying Deuteronomy Chapter 30, verses 15-18 when I cross referenced to the above verses in Paul's letter to the Galatians. The apostle Paul originally planted Christ's church in Galatia in the region of Asia Minor. It was not long before these planted churches became apostate.
Gal 1:6 I am amazed that you are so quickly deserting Him who called you by the grace of Christ, for a different gospel;


False teachers had made their way into the churches in Galatia and began to alter the truth of the Gospel of Christ. Paul returned to Galatia to prove that justification is by faith alone and not the deeds of the law.


Let's go back for a moment and look at the verses I started with in the Old Testament book of Deuteronomy:
Deu 30:15-18 "See, I have set before you today life and prosperity, and death and adversity; (16) in that I command you today to love the LORD your God, to walk in His ways and to keep His commandments and His statutes and His judgments, that you may live and multiply, and that the LORD your God may bless you in the land where you are entering to possess it. (17) "But if your heart turns away and you will not obey, but are drawn away and worship other gods and serve them, (18) I declare to you today that you shall surely perish. You will not prolong your days in the land where you are crossing the Jordan to enter and possess it.
I especially like verse 17 and the first sentence of verse 18:
  1. "But if your heart turns away and you will not obey, but are drawn away and worship other gods and serve them, (18) I declare to you today that you shall surely perish.


Let's return to Galatians 3:23:
Gal 3:23 But before faith came, we were kept in custody under the law, being shut up to the faith which was later to be revealed.


What is meant by "custody under the law"? Let's look up the Greek:
custody:
φρουρέω
phroureō
froo-reh'-o
From a compound of G4253 and G3708; to be a watcher in advance, that is, to mount guard as a sentinel (post spies at gates); figuratively to hem in, protect: - keep (with a garrison). Compare G5083.


Law:
νόμος
nomos
nom'-os
From a primary word νέμω nemō (to parcel out, especially food or grazing to animals); law (through the idea of prescriptive usage), generally (regulation), specifically (of Moses [including the volume]; also of the Gospel), or figuratively (a principle): - law.


So we can see that prior to being justified by faith (when Christ came as the sacrifice for our sins) man was kept in custody-or protection under the law of Moses. The ancient Israelites were “shut up”. In modern English the term “shut up” has a negative conotation in telling someone to be quiet in a rather nasty sort of way. We have all had the need to instruct our children not to use this term “shut up” But what does this term really mean in the Greek?
συγκλείω
sugkleiō
soong-kli'-o
From G4862 and G2808; to shut together, that is, include or (figuratively) embrace in a common subjection to: - conclude, inclose, shut up.


In verse 23 (being shut up to the faith which was later to be revealed.) it is telling us that they embraced and were in common subjection to the Old Testament law as revealed by Moses up until the time in which Christ was revealed as our Savior and the ultimate sacrifice for our sin.
Matthew Henry states that “The law did not teach a living, saving knowledge; but, by its rites and ceremonies, especially by its sacrifices, it pointed to Christ, that they might be justified by faith."


Galatians 3:24:
Gal 3:24 Therefore the Law has become our tutor to lead us to Christ, so that we may be justified by faith.


The law became our tutor. What exactly do we mean by that?


παιδαγωγός
paidagōgos
pahee-dag-o-gos'
From G3816 and a reduplication form of G71; a boy leader, that is, a servant whose office it was to take the children to school; (by implication [figuratively] a tutor [“paedagogue”]): - instructor, schoolmaster.


The law became our servant whose office it was to take us to school, to lead and instruct us. Christ was to become the sacrificial lamb for our sins.
Gal 2:16 nevertheless knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the Law but through faith in Christ Jesus, even we have believed in Christ Jesus, so that we may be justified by faith in Christ and not by the works of the Law; since by the works of the Law no flesh will be justified.
Act 13:39 and through Him everyone who believes is freed from all things, from which you could not be freed through the Law of Moses.
Rom 10:4 For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.


I am not sure who stated this but I like it and will include this without giving proper credit:
God does not reward me for good efforts, or even good performance. God blesses me because He loves me. And He loves for me to just trust in Him. And He loves it when I seek to please Him. But even that is not the basis for what God gives to me. The basis is God's love and grace for me. He bestows upon me His blessings, His love, as I simply believe in Him to do it and trust Him to do it.
The following quote is from the late Chuck Smith, founder of Calvary Chapel:
You see, God does not reward us for our works, for our efforts, for our goodness. Whatever God gives to me, He gives to me on the basis of my believing in His grace. And these men have learned to believe in the grace of God. Not really looking at their own selves, weaknesses, failures or whatever, and they have learned how to inspire people to look to God through faith. And God honors the faith of the people who have come to receive from God.


Our last Galatians Chap 3 verse for the day:
Gal 3:25 But now that faith has come, we are no longer under a tutor.
In our day we no longer have need of a παιδαγωγός (pahee-dag-o-gos') tutor. Faith has come and we receive freely the gift of eternal salvation by the completed work of our Lord Jesus Christ. Romans 7:14 kind of gives a summary of this transition from the sacrifice under Mosaic law to the New Covenant:
Rom 7:4 Therefore, my brethren, you also were made to die to the Law through the body of Christ, so that you might be joined to another, to Him who was raised from the dead, in order that we might bear fruit for God.
We are no longer under the law, but under the covenant of grace.
Rom 6:14 For sin shall not be master over you, for you are not under law but under grace.
As we conclude today let's look at this final excerpt from Chuck Smith:
So I stand in the grace of God. I walk in the grace of God. Now, does that mean then that I can just go out, and you know, live any kind of an old lascivious life? No, no, no, no, no. The love of Christ constrains me to walk a life that is pleasing, and when I use that as the criteria for my activities, I find that I live a more strict life than when I try and use right and wrong as the basis for my particular activity. Is this right to do? Is this wrong to do? I so often hear that question. That should not be the consideration. The consideration should always be, "Is this pleasing to God if I do it?"
We are getting off subject a bit at this point, but this is such an important point that I would be remiss if I did not bring it up. We will cover so called "backsliding" extensively at another time. But let's not take grace for granted and as license to sin.

If I indeed believe, my belief will be demonstrated by my actions.

Look, many Americans honestly think everything will be great, America will be great again, the same as at 911, we will build , the sycamore tree, wow. Harbinger, great book, much of what Rabbi said, did not happen, as stated, so what does this mean, a first, yes, the stocks had the worse opening and starting of wall street ever, The economy is still tanked it will take God himself to stop it all, in the long post I did with many links, its there , look,

There are just enough of the bride, praying saints, sadly, much of the same bride that thinks they are all set and we will be great again, but a very different greatness, the USA has known in the past, this time The greatness will be great without The lord. No Jesus, no hope, accept Jesus, you keep waiting , I think , because so many are talking, meaning, many are listening and the lie grows to a small thing, to a global thing.

Friday the 13, th the writing is still on the wall, its been held off and so may think its held off can go back to my old ways or even back to sin we are great again all is well. The bible speaks against not holding on to the same omens the pagans did, the mystical Jews did.

That is my wisdom for the day, next the post.

First- I will be doing a few times a week, an audio or video, 10 plus min, 'Nuggets of Truth' name of it, like a meaty devotion guide.

I found the book that was almost done The NT Prophets- Another Jeremiah. Our weather has put all outside work, to a grinding hault, over a week. Found my notes on the Trump card, its a matter of putting it together, I ended it many times and the next day more wild stuff its a book that may not get put together, so will post in parts 1 and 2 and who knows, This is the first time I did this, politics reporting, I dislike that a lot, and try to avoid politics a lot. No one has ever seen anything like the Brexit not law yet, EU is almost no longer. PTL. All Free countries? No Did you know France parts are still in martial law, a soft kind, but its real, part of Germany did it, Greece, Had to in Porto Rico USA, all ready in economic free fall, Brazil once great, is now like Greece and the IMF does not like it.

Tomorrow's Friday the 13th full moon is so rare, it won't happen again until 2049




Scott Sutherland
Meteorologist/Science Writer


Friday, June 13, 2014, 8:08 AM - Call it what you want - the Strawberry Moon, the Rose Moon or even the Honey Moon - June's full moon has several names, but this particular one is rare enough that we haven't seen one since the year 2000, and we won't see another until the year 2049. What's different about the full moon this month? For anyone living in or eastward of the Eastern time zone, it falls on Friday the 13th.
It's a simple coincidence of numbers, of course. As the Earth rotates on its axis and orbits around the sun, we tick off the days, weeks and months on our calendar. Meanwhile, the moon orbits around the Earth on its own schedule, progressing through its phases each day and taking roughly 29.5 days to get from one full moon to the next.



Our calendar has a steady enough layout that we easily follow it from month to month and year to year. Our days and weeks are consistent enough, but we restart the count of our days (ie: our months) every 28 to 31 days. This causes the factors involved in this coincidence to shift around enough that they only line up every once in a while. 
First, since we consistently count out 7-day weeks, from Sunday to Saturday, regardless of what the rest of the calendar is doing, that makes the specific days of the month fall on different days of the week (except February and March, usually). This makes Friday the 13ths uncommon as it is. Of the 12 times a year when we have the 13th-day-of-the-month, a maximum of three of those will fall on a Friday throughout the year, and while there can be up to 14 months between occurrences of the day, there is always at least one Friday the 13th per calendar year. 
Just going back as far as 2000, this will be the 25th Friday the 13th in that time span. 
Looking at the full moon now, they happen once every 29.5 days (called a synodic month), so we see at least one almost every month (there are a few Februaries that don't have one). That gives us between 12 and 13 full moons every year. However, having it fall on a specific day is a little less common. Since 2000, the full moon has fallen on a Friday a total of 26 times. In that same time, the full moon has occurred on the 13th of the month exactly nine times. 
Bringing it all together, though, to have the 13th fall on a Friday and have the synodic month line up to put a full moon on that same day, the number of occurrences since the year 2000 drops to two (including this one). What's more, is that these three factors won't line up again for another 35 years, and 2 months, when another Friday the 13th full moon comes in August of 2049.
Given that there can be a little as 2-3 years between two occurrences of the Friday the 13th full moon, that's a pretty long period of time to wait to see this happen again. However, it actually isn't the longest. Between January 1922 and November 1970, the moon and the calendar stubbornly refused to line up. That produced a 48 year and 10 month stretch of no Friday the 13th full moons.
Friday the 13th is already viewed as unlucky by certain cultures, so, with the extra coincidence of this full moon, is that going to make this day even more unlucky? Well, beyond the superstition, there's no evidence that Friday the 13th is actually more "unlucky" than other days of the year. In fact, there are some statistics that support the idea that it's actually a slightly safer day than others (mostly because people tend to be more careful on that day, it seems). 
This should probably be seen as a fairly lucky day, though, since all of these separate time factors had to.



PS 33



Title. To the Chief Musician—a Psalm of David. The dedication to the chief musician proves that this song of mingled measures and alternate strains of grief and woe was intended for public singing, and thus a deathblow is given to the notion that nothing but praise should be sung. Perhaps the Psalms, thus marked, might have been set aside as too mournful for temple worship, if special care had not been taken by the Holy Spirit to indicate them as being designed for the public edification of the Lord's people. May there not also be in Psalms thus designated a peculiar distinct reference to the Lord Jesus? He certainly manifests himself very clearly in the twenty-second, which bears this title; and in the one before us we plainly hear his dying voice in the fifth verse. Jesus is chief everywhere, and in all the holy songs of his saints he is the chief musician. The surmises that Jeremiah penned this Psalm need no other answer than the fact that it is "a Psalm of David."



Psa 31:1 To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. In thee, O LORD, do I put my trust; let me never be ashamed: deliver me in thy righteousness.



Psa 31:2 Bow down thine ear to me; deliver me speedily: be thou my strong rock, for an house of defence to save me.



Psa 31:3 For thou art my rock and my fortress; therefore for thy name's sake lead me, and guide me.



Psa 31:4 Pull me out of the net that they have laid privily for me: for thou art my strength.



Psa 31:5 Into thine hand I commit my spirit: thou hast redeemed me, O LORD God of truth.



Psa 31:6 I have hated them that regard lying vanities: but I trust in the LORD.



Psa 31:7 I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy: for thou hast considered my trou
ble; thou hast known my soul in adversities;



Psa 31:8 And hast not shut me up into the hand of the enemy: thou hast set my feet in a large room.



Psa 31:9 Have mercy upon me, O LORD, for I am in trouble: mine eye is consumed with grief, yea, my soul and my belly.



Psa 31:10 For my life is spent with grief, and my years with sighing: my strength faileth because of mine iniquity, and my bones are consumed.



Psa 31:11 I was a reproach among all mine enemies, but especially among my neighbours, and a fear to mine acquaintance: they that did see me without fled from me.



Psa 31:12 I am forgotten as a dead man out of mind: I am like a broken vessel.



Psa 31:13 For I have heard the slander of many: fear was on every side: while they took counsel together against me, they devised to take away my life.



Psa 31:14 But I trusted in thee, O LORD: I said, Thou art my God.



Psa 31:15 My times are in thy hand: deliver me from the hand of mine enemies, and from them that persecute me.



Psa 31:16 Make thy face to shine upon thy servant: save me for thy mercies' sake.



Psa 31:17 Let me not be ashamed, O LORD; for I have called upon thee: let the wicked be ashamed, and let them be silent in the grave.



Psa 31:18 Let the lying lips be put to silence; which speak grievous things proudly and contemptuously against the righteous.



Psa 31:19 Oh how great is thy goodness, which thou hast laid up for them that fear thee; which thou hast wrought for them that trust in thee before the sons of men!



Psa 31:20 Thou shalt hide them in the secret of thy presence from the pride of man: thou shalt keep them secretly in a pavilion from the strife of tongues.



Psa 31:21 Blessed be the LORD: for he hath shewed me his marvellous kindness in a strong city.



Psa 31:22 For I said in my haste, I am cut off from before thine eyes: nevertheless thou heardest the voice of my supplications when I cried unto thee.



Psa 31:23 O love the LORD, all ye his saints: for the LORD preserveth the faithful, and plentifully rewardeth the proud doer.



Psa 31:24 Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the LORD.

PRAY FOR PASTOR BOB

Pray For Pastor Bob-Robert Banister, In His Rig Stuck

DR Bob is all over USA, he said worse winter he has ever seen as a long haul trucker.

Bobs email, I give to you so we can pray for BOB.


Praying for you
Dr. Bob the Grandpa <dr.grandpa@startmail.com>
Today, 9:49 AMYou
Good Morning Brother,
I have been stuck on the side of the road since yesterday in a truck turnout near Ft. Bridger Wyoming. The road has been closed, and will remain closed until further notice. There is a possibility of reopening late this afternoon-but uncertain due to another round of snowstorms. Remember I left Lincoln NE nearly a week ago and haven't even made it out of Wyoming yet. This is some kind of a record. There are no facilities here-only some flat ground, thus a little like snow camping. My concern at this time is that I don't have very much fuel left, I have a gallon of water left and i have some food. I can always melt snow for some more water, but if I run out of fuel I am in trouble. The Lord is with me-so doing OK, my main concern is fuel. There are other trucks out here without food or supplies so I am watching for this. Like you said-there is a lesson in this.
I am going to postpone Grace Wins! tonight due to circumstances-perhaps will scheduled for Fri night if I can get to a suitable location by then. In all my years of trucking I have never experienced a winter like this. So please pray for me and for safe passage out of the mountains. I wish I were out there with you in Yermo- hot and dry dusty old desert LOL.



NOT this year, we have had record rain and cloudy, windy hard desert winter.

Love you my Brother,
Dr. BOB to Dr. DAN

If You Make The The Right Move, You Will Not Be Moved

Psa 15:1  A Psalm of David. LORD, who shall abide in thy tabernacle? who shall dwell in thy holy hill?


Psa 15:2  He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth in his heart.


Psa 15:3  He that backbiteth not with his tongue, nor doeth evil to his neighbour, nor taketh up a reproach against his neighbour.


Psa 15:4  In whose eyes a vile person is contemned; but he honoureth them that fear the LORD. He that sweareth to his own hurt, and changeth not.


Psa 15:5  He that putteth not out his money to usury, nor taketh reward against the innocent. He that doeth these things shall never be moved.


Spurgen:


Who should attend upon the ark was a matter of no small consequence, for because unauthorised persons had intruded into the office, David was unable on the first occasion to complete his purpose of bringing the ark to Zion. On the second attempt he is more careful, not only to allot the work of carrying the ark to the divinely appointed Levites (1Ch_15:2), but also to leave it in charge of the man whose house the Lord had blessed, even Obededom, who, with his many sons, ministered in the house of the Lord. (1Ch_26:8, 1Ch_26:12.) Spiritually we have here a description of the man who is a child at home in the Church of God on earth, and who will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever above. He is primarily Jesus, the perfect man, and in him all who through grace are conformed to his image.


Division - The first verse asks the question; the rest of the verses answer it. We will call the Psalm The Question And Answer.

Hints to Preachers

Psa_15:1 - Qualifications for church membership on earth and in heaven. A subject for self-examination.



Psa_15:1 -

I.   Comparison of the church to the tabernacle. God's presence manifested, sacrifice offered, and vessels of grace preserved in it; mean externally, glorious within.



II. Comparison of its double position to that of the tabernacle. Moving in the wilderness, and fixed on the hill.



III.           Enquire into qualifications for admittance into church and tabernacle. Parallel with the priests, etc.



Psa_15:1 - The great question. Asked by idle curiosity, despair, godly fear, earnest enquirer, soul troubled by falls of others, holy faith. Give answer to each.

Psa_15:1 - The citizen of Zion described - Thomas Boston's Sermons.



Psa_15:1 - Anxiety to know the true saints, how far lawful and profitable.


Psa_15:1 - God the only infallible discerner of true saints.



Psa_15:2 - “He that walketh uprightly.”



I.   What he must be. He must be upright in heart. A man himself bent double cannot walk uprightly.



II. How he must act. Neither from impulse, ambition, gain, fear, or flattery. He must not be warped in any direction, but stand perpendicularly.



III.           What he must expect. Snares, etc to trip him.



IV.            Where he must walk. Path of duty, the only one in which he can walk uprightly.



V.  Where he must look. Up, right-up, and then he will be upright.



Psa_15:2 - “Speaketh the truth in his heart.” Subject: - Heart falsehood and heart truth.



Psa_15:2 (first clause) - The citizen of Zion an upright walker.




Psa_15:2 (middle clause) - The citizen of Zion, a worker of righteousness.



Psa_15:2 (last clause) - The citizen of Zion, a speaker of truth - Four Sermons in Thomas Boston' s Works.



Psa_15:3 - The evils of detraction. It affects three persons here mentioned: the backbiter, the suffering neighbour, and the taker-up of the reproach.



Psa_15:3 - “Nor taketh up a reproach.” The sin of being too ready to believe ill reports. Common, cruel, foolish, injurious, wicked.



Psa_15:4 - The duty of practically honouring those who fear the Lord. Commendation, deference, assistance, imitation, etc.



Psa_15:4 - The sin of estimating persons other than by their practical characters.



Psa_15:4 (last clause) - The Lord Jesus as our unchanging Surety, his oath and his hurt.



Psa_15:5 - The evidences and privileges of godly men.



Psa_15:5 (last clause) - The fixedness and safety of the godly.



The psalm has 11 things to study. Spurgen gave a good and simple breakdown, you may want to re-read his break down of these 11 things.


This Psalms main message is much more than a list of do- nots, it is a list of Do’s.

The last words tell us how we can never be moved.


He that doeth these things shall never be moved.


Well that pretty much is the reason our economy is collapsing, why? The sin of loaning money with interest, this is a sin, and no small matter, so much for the Bankers LOL. They are and shall be moved.


To the rest of us, I asked, have we been moved, by fear, looking upon others as we should not, judging a person before you know the whole matter, pointing of the finger, gossip, sins of the tongue are in abundance in the word.


Psa 24:1  A Psalm of David. The earth is the LORD'S, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.


Psa 24:2  For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods.

Psa 24:3  Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in his holy place?


Psa 24:4  He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.


Psa 24:5  He shall receive the blessing from the LORD, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.


Psa 24:6  This is the generation of them that seek him, that seek thy face, O Jacob. Selah.


Psa 24:7  Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.


Psa 24:8  Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle.


Psa 24:9  Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.


Psa 24:10  Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory. Selah.


In this Psalm 4 things are listed as you read.


Psa 24:4  He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.





The King of Glory, strong and mighty, the lord mighty in battle, hear he comes, he is hear, now, he is lord of lords and Kings Of Kings. Have we forgot, grace and mercy, salvation are free, but discipleship costs us everything. The King of Glory, do you not want His presence and blessing in your life? I do not speak of the blessings of health, wealth, prosperity , no, no.


Mic 2:10  Arise ye, and depart; for this is not your rest: because it is polluted, it shall destroy you, even with a sore destruction.


Heb 13:13  Let us go forth therefore unto him without the camp, bearing his reproach.


Heb 13:14  For here have we no continuing city, but we seek one to come.


This is the move we are to make, not away, but to a closer walk with our Lord. This is a sanctified move, to be heavenly minded, and not worldly minded. We are not of this world. Our Lord comes as King of Glory , he inhabits the praise of His people, and with those that  walk with clean hands and pure hearts, putting away the sins of the tongue. The key is, the correct move, once made, we will than, and only than, see we will not be moved.

Sue Miller Just Became A Grandma-Lord Bless Her And The Baby

My dear  long time friend and she has done a few messages on this website she is a member LOL.
I just got the news the baby was born. This is Sue Miller Email-I will ask her to do a message on what do Jews, Messianic Jews do , a child dedication,. what, in her words. Over the years she has taught me a great deal about messianic Jewish Church events.

 Susan Miller Today, 1:45 PMYou
Yes! I was just going to write.

Charles Maxwell Miller was born at 11:41a.m.EST, weighing in at 8lbs.,9oz.and 20.5 inches long.

He is just beautiful. God is so good.
Here a few pictures.

Mom is doing well.

Will write more later.

Love to you both-
Grandma Sue




The Lord shows us life , in the midst of so much death, life goes on, even in global chaos, plants grow, baby's are born. My thought is the lord our Father holds us and sees us just like this new baby.

Also, simply, as said, life goes on, my daughter Colene was born on Jan 11th so it means something deeper to me. FYI- Pray for my Daughter, she is having trouble with her move to Maine, we have herd no word in a few days, last call was not good at all. We pray she comes home. You always remember your child as this baby. 

Your baby might be in jail, but you love him.
Your baby might be in mental institution, but you love him 
Your baby may be an addict-but you love him.

Point:

God does not wink at our sin, or OK any sin, but he is with us in all, no matter where you are, you can start again, you can come home again, you can be born again like this baby, today you can be truly, fully, ALIVE. IN CHRIST-joy will flood your soul, and that weight you have been carrying is taken away. Its not easy, but its a way of life that is indescribable. You can have this, yes you...right now, are you tiered enough of the road your on? I hope so, repent, seek Jesus, accept him, learn of him, and walk like him.
