2 Kings 13:5 Then the Lord gave Israel a deliverer, so that they escaped from under the hand of the Syrians; and the Children of Israel dwelt in their tents as before. This is the answer to a prayer from King Jehoahaz, Jehoahaz did evil in the sight of the Lord. But in the verse before he pleaded with God to deliver him and his kingdom from the oppression of Syria. Verse four states that, ‘The Lord Listened.’ It gets complicated with the dual kingdoms of Judah and Israel at t
Colossians 3:15-16 And let the peace of YAHUAH rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful. Let the word of HAMASHICH dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to YAHUAH. Maybe Paul knew what he was saying when he wrote: “Be ye thankful.” When you start giving ‘Thanks’ for what you have it’s hard to focus in on your problems. Proble
Isaiah 49:25 For I will contend with him who contends with you. And I will save your children. I love this verse, it’s simple and straight to the point. When everything seems to be going against you this is a good verse to hang on to. I remember a poster of a kitten hanging onto the end of a rope with one paw, and the caption said: “When you reach the end of your rope, tie a knot and Hang On!” This was a quote by Thomas Jefferson. This verse is a lifeline of promise for you.
Ephesians 1:1 Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, to the saints which are at Ephesus, and to the faithful in Christ Jesus: The Book of Ephesians was a circular letter sent to several churches in the region of Ephesus, and it was the only letter that was not adapted to a case in a singular church. Because of this it carries common concern for all Christians. I’ve often said that if I was ever to be stranded on a deserted island and, I was to be allowed only on
Numbers 21:5-8 And the people spoke against God and against Moses: “Why have you brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? For there is no food and no water, and our soul loathes this worthless bread.” So, the Lord sent fiery serpents among the people; and many of the people of Israel died. Therefore, the people of Israel came to Moses and said: “We have sinned, for we have spoken against the Lord and against you; pray to the Lord that He take away the serpents fro
Isaiah 6:1 In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and His train filled the temple. King Uzziah was a righteous king that served well in his office for the Lord that is until pride took him down. Isaiah was a member of the royal family, Uzziah was his nephew. I’m sure Isaiah was grieving the loss of a great king and family member. Mathew Henry believed that Isaiah was contemplating quitting his ministry. Simply put he w
Stake Your Cross I Peter 5:8 Be sober, be vigilant; Because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour. Notice this scripture doesn’t say, ‘he is a roaring lion’ it says he acts like a roaring lion. He will use people to intimidate you every chance he gets. Recently the Lord told me to go to Detroit and plant a cross at the Packard car plant. The Packard plant has been shut down for more than fifty years. And was purchased by a weal
