In the language of God’s originalchosen” people, 4 = Daleth which means “door.” Jesus said, “I am the door; if anyone enters through Me, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.” (John 10:9).

God the Father’s house (Beth) has a door (Daleth) whose name is Jesus by which you can go out or come in. The door can be closed or open. If the door is open, man can see another world. God designed us to live with the door open, which means that we will experience strife in our lives, rather than closing the door to avoid conflict. People live in a world of warfare and conflict, both within ourselves and against nature. Daleth symbolizes a world of opposition between good and evil, life and death, justice and injustice.

1 Corinthians 16:9, New American Standard Bible (©1995)
for a wide door for effective service has opened to me, and there are many adversaries is the same as God says to Cain in Genesis “If you do not do well, sin is crouching at your door; and its desire is to master you, but you must master it.”
Cain didn’t listen to the Lord. The sin of anger mastered him, and he killed his brother.
Remember how Jesus defined His “family?” Who ever obeys His Father’s will. PERIOD. END OF DISCUSSION. NO ROOM FOR DEBATE OR CRAFTINESS.

Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.

Hebrews 13:8 (New International Version, ©2010)

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. The warning, one more time: “If you do well, surely you will be accepted, but if you do not do well, sin is crouching at the door and its desire is to master you, to consume you, to rule you. You must master it by depending on the power of the Lord Jesus Christ to keep you free from its power.”

Daleth represents “this world in this time.” It covers the physical side of our world, which exists within the time dimension. So that it is plain to understand the four-dimension concept, here are other examples:

o Four directions (north, south, east, west)
o Four elements (earth, air, fire, water)
o Four kingdoms (animal, vegetable, mineral, spiritual)
o Four seasons (spring, summer, autumn, winter)
o Four DNA genomes (A, G, T, C)
o Four gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, John)

Jesus was both rejected/despised and accepted/esteemed of men when He first came but when He returns it is He who will be either rejecting or accepting us solely on whosoever has publicly confessed Him as their Lord and Savior in this age/time.

In my Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. You know the way to the place where I am going.

Jesus the Way to the Father

Thomas said to him, “Lord, we don’t know where you are going, so how can we know the way?

Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you really knew me, you would know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him.”

Philip said, “Lord, show us the Father and that will be enough for us.”

Jesus answered: “Don’t you know me, Philip, even after I have been among you such a long time? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? Don’t you believe that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me? The words I say to you are not just my own. Rather, it is the Father, living in me, who is doing his work. Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the miracles themselves. I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Son may bring glory to the Father. You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.

Jesus Promises the Holy Spirit

If you love me, you will obey what I command. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Counselor to be with you forever— the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you. I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you. Before long, the world will not see me anymore, but you will see me. Because I live, you also will live. On that day you will realize that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you. Whoever has my commands and obeys them, he is the one who loves me. He who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love him and show myself to him.”

Then Judas (not Judas Iscariot) said, “But, Lord, why do you intend to show yourself to us and not to the world?

Jesus replied, “If anyone loves me, he will obey my teaching. My Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him. He who does not love me will not obey my teaching. These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me.

All this I have spoken while still with you. But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.

You heard me say, ‘I am going away and I am coming back to you.’ If you loved me, you would be glad that I am going to the Father, for the Father is greater than I. I have told you now before it happens, so that when it does happen you will believe. I will not speak with you much longer, for the prince of this world is coming. He has no hold on me, but the world must learn that I love the Father and that I do exactly what my Father has commanded me.

Come now; let us leave.

At Jesus’ first coming, the enemy was striking down children even as he has attempted in every chronological generation…Hitler and in our time-period, the unborn aborted even as the Egyptians slaughtered Moses’ generation.


Yet the mother, even as Eve who had pain in childbirth, is the Bride of Christ who is co-laboring with Him in holy travail, interceding and weeping over the tribe, her children, and with them weeping over the fallen destiny of Israel, and over the calamities about to come upon the land.

In Jerusalem, there is the Dominus Flavit Church on the Mount of Olives. The Church, built in the shape of a teardrop, signifies Jesus weeping over Jerusalem from Matthew 23 where Jesus said, “Oh, Jerusalem, Jerusalem, how often I wanted to gather your children as a hen gathers her young under her wings. But you would not.”

And a voice came out of the throne, saying, Praise our God, all ye his servants, and ye that fear him, both small and great. And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth. Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.

Isaiah 53:11, He shall see of the travail of his soul, [and] shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities.

A seed shall serve him; it shall be accounted to the Lord for a generation

Micah 5:2, “But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.”

The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob” is the common three-generation descriptive title of God. God Himself declares it to Moses at the burning bush when revealing His name, “I AM“:

And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you. And God said moreover unto Moses, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, The LORD God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath sent me unto you: this is my name for ever, and this is my memorial unto all generations.” (Ex. 3:14, 15)

God promised Abraham that after 400 years He would deliver Israel, “…in the fourth generation.” A generation in the Bible is normally 40 years long. However, here a generation is 100 years (4 x 100 = 400 years). Since Abraham received his promised child when he was exactly 100 years old, this is the measure of that generation, or God’s standard. Romans 9, “…but, In Isaac shall thy seed be called.

But in the fourth generation they shall come hither again: for the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet full.” At the end of this age of God’s Grace in Christ Jesus, we have the end-time generation that “will not pass away until all these things have taken place.” (Matthew 24:34, Mark 13:30, Luke 21:32). People read this and wonder, “Well, how long is a generation?” Forty years seemed to be a good Bible answer. However, just as people were when Jesus first came, nit-picking and squabbling over deep issues and missing the point, so it is with His second coming — the heart of the matter is how does Jesus define a “generation” because just how He defined His “family“, His ways are higher than ours and does not have to mean a specific number of years. It means a group of people at a given age throughout all the ages in time which God has given to people everywhere to seek Him as Father, Lord and Savior.

Who Is The Fourth Man?

In the New Testament, “The God and Father of our Lord Yeshua Messiah,” FULFILLS the Old Testament, “The God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.” This is because Messiah is, of Himself, the last or fourth part (4 x 100 years) of the three-generations phrase (i.e., after, “…God of Jacob,…”). Furthermore, He is of Himself, the entire 400 years as symbolic of a 40-year generation (times 10). Jesus says of Himself as it is written in Revelation 22:13 New Living Translation (©2007),
“I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.”

So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen. Matthew 20:16 and in Wesley’s Notes,

“So the last shall be first, and the first last – Not only with regard to the Jews and Gentiles, but in a thousand other instances. For many are called – All who hear the Gospel; but few chosen – Only those who obey it. Matthew 9:30; 22:14.”

Here in the Gospel of Matthew, Jesus is talking to a crowd. The religious “leaders” are forever wanting to trip Him up on some legal technicality or snare Him in a loophole in the Law and even His closest follower squabble among themselves right on up to the night before His crucifixion on which one is more important than the other -they never ease up or “get it” fixating on the deep issues while overlooking the pure and simple Truths. Jesus was God’s Word fulfilling all things, including: the Sabbath, the devil, signs, miracles, YADA! Finally, in the midst of all of this, someone tells Jesus that His mother and brothers are standing outside waiting to talk to him. Jesus replies, “Who is my mother, and who are my brothers?” He points to the disciples and says, “Here are my mother and my brothers. For whoever does the will of my father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother.” In Luke’s Gospel, Jesus goes straight to the heart of the matter, “If anyone comes to me and does not hate his father and mother, his wife and children, his brothers and sisters—yes, even his own life—he cannot be my disciple.”

Let us not miss the boat, or the ark of God’s Covenant in Christ Jesus by missing the point in a literal definition but seek God’s perspective.

But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light.
1 Peter 11 Peter 2:9
and, Matthew 22:14, For many are called, but few [are] chosen. What is God’s definition on “chosen?

2 Peter 1:10 Therefore, my brothers, be all the more eager to make your calling and election sure. For if you do these things, you will never fall, and Revelation 17:14 They will make war against the Lamb, but the Lamb will overcome them because he is Lord of lords and King of kings–and with him will be his called, chosen and faithful followers.

The Spirit of God, the Master, is on me because God anointed me. He sent me to preach good news to the poor,
heal the heartbroken, Announce freedom to all captives, pardon all prisoners.
God sent me to announce the year of his grace— a celebration of God’s destruction of our enemies—
and to comfort all who mourn, To care for the needs of all who mourn in Zion,
give them bouquets of roses instead of ashes, Messages of joy instead of news of doom,
a praising heart instead of a languid spirit.
Rename them “Oaks of Righteousness” planted by God to display his glory.
They’ll rebuild the old ruins, raise a new city out of the wreckage.
They’ll start over on the ruined cities, take the rubble left behind and make it new.
You’ll hire outsiders to herd your flocks and foreigners to work your fields,
But you’ll have the title “Priests of God,” honored as ministers of our God.
You’ll feast on the bounty of nations, you’ll bask in their glory.
Because you got a double dose of trouble and more than your share of contempt,
Your inheritance in the land will be doubled and your joy go on forever.

Open the gates that a righteous nation may enter–one that remains faithful.

You’ll want to sing out that day,  Give thanks to the Eternal; call on His name. 

Spread the news throughout the world of what He has done and how great is His name!

He sends out his orders throughout the world;
his words run as swift messengers, bringing them to pass.

For the Lord God is brighter than the brilliance of a sunrise!
Wrapping himself around me like a shield,
he is so generous with his gifts of grace and glory.
Those who walk along his paths with integrity
will never lack one thing they need, for he provides it all!

Love Lines

Lord, I have chosen You alone as my inheritance.  You are my prize, my pleasure, and my portion.
I leave my destiny and its timing in Your hands.  

My boundary lines fall in pleasant places

  You have gifted me with abundance and a rich legacy.  (Psalm 16:5-6)

“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to Me. Get away with Me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with Me and work with Me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with Me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.” (Matthew 11:28-30)

 I thought to Myself how much I wanted to welcome you home as children
        and bless you with a good land and a future to be envied by all the world.
    I hoped for the day when you would call Me ‘My Father,’
        and no longer pull away from Me and My ways.”  (Jeremiah 3:19)

“I still have many things to tell you, but you can’t handle them now. But when the Friend comes, the Spirit of the Truth, he will take you by the hand and guide you into all the truth there is. He won’t draw attention to himself, but will make sense out of what is about to happen and, indeed, out of all that I have done and said. He will honor me; he will take from me and deliver it to you. Everything the Father has is also mine. That is why I’ve said, ‘He takes from me and delivers to you.’ (John 16:12-15)

And God? Compassionate!  Forgave the sin! Didn’t destroy!
Over and over He reined in His anger, restrained His considerable wrath.
He knew what they were made of;  He knew there wasn’t much to them,
How often in the desert they had spurned Him, tried His patience in those wilderness years.
Time and again they pushed Him to the limit, provoked Israel’s Holy God.
How quickly they forgot what He’d done, forgot their day of rescue from the enemy,
When He did miracles in Egypt, wonders on the plain of Zoan.
He turned the River and its streams to blood—not a drop of water fit to drink.
He sent flies, which ate them alive, and frogs, which bedeviled them.
He turned their harvest over to caterpillars, everything they had worked for to the locusts.
He flattened their grapevines with hail; a killing frost ruined their orchards.
He pounded their cattle with hail, let thunderbolts loose on their herds.
His anger flared, a wild firestorm of havoc,
An advance guard of disease-carrying angels to clear the ground, preparing the way before Him.
He didn’t spare those people, He let the plague rage through their lives.
He killed all the Egyptian firstborns, lusty infants, offspring of Ham’s virility.
Then he led His people out like sheep, took His flock safely through the wilderness.
He took good care of them; they had nothing to fear.
    The Sea took care of their enemies for good.
He brought them into His holy land,  this mountain He claimed for His own.
He scattered everyone who got in their way; He staked out an inheritance for them—
    the tribes of Israel all had their own places.  (Psalm 78:38-55)

Jesus said, “I tell you most solemnly that anyone who chooses a life of sin is trapped in a dead-end life and is, in fact, a slave. A slave is a transient, who can’t come and go at will. The Son, though, has an established position, the run of the house. So if the Son sets you free, you are free through and through. I know you are Abraham’s descendants. But I also know that you are trying to kill me because my message hasn’t yet penetrated your thick skulls. I’m talking about things I have seen while keeping company with the Father, and you just go on doing what you have heard from your father.” (John 8:36-38)

Love knows no limit to its endurance, no end to its trust, no fading of its hope; it can outlast anything.

It is, in fact, the one thing that still stands when all else has fallen.  (1 Corinthians 13:7-8a)

All gifts except love will be superseded one day

For if there are prophecies they will be fulfilled and done with, if there are “tongues” the need for them will disappear,

if there is knowledge it will be swallowed up in truth.

For our knowledge is always incomplete and our prophecy is always incomplete,

and when the complete comes, that is the end of the incomplete.  (1 Corinthians 13:8b-10)

Then he told me, “These are those who come from the great tribulation, and they’ve washed their robes, scrubbed them clean in the blood of the Lamb. That’s why they’re standing before God’s Throne. They serve him day and night in his Temple. The One on the Throne will pitch his tent there for them: no more hunger, no more thirst, no more scorching heat. The Lamb on the Throne will shepherd them, will lead them to spring waters of Life. And God will wipe every last tear from their eyes.”
(Revelation 7:14-17)

If we are God’s children, that means we are His heirs along with the Anointed, set to inherit everything that is His.

If we share His sufferings, we know that we will ultimately share in His glory.  (Romans 8:17)

We may feel alone, but we aren’t. We are surrounded by an army of witnesses.

They have run the race of faith and finished well. It is now our turn.

Now stay focused on Jesus, who designed and perfected our faith.

He endured the cross and ignored the shame of that death because He focused on the joy that was set before Him;

and now He is seated beside God on the throne, a place of honor.  (Hebrews 12:2)

War broke out in Heaven. Michael and his Angels fought the Dragon. The Dragon and his Angels fought back, but were no match for Michael. They were cleared out of Heaven, not a sign of them left. The great Dragon—ancient Serpent, the one called Devil and Satan, the one who led the whole earth astray—thrown out, and all his Angels thrown out with him, thrown down to earth. Then I heard a strong voice out of Heaven saying,
Salvation and power are established!
Kingdom of our God, authority of his Messiah!
The Accuser of our brothers and sisters thrown out,
who accused them day and night before God.
They defeated him through the blood of the Lamb
and the bold word of their witness.
They weren’t in love with themselves;
they were willing to die for Christ.
So rejoice, O Heavens, and all who live there,
but doom to earth and sea,
For the Devil’s come down on you with both feet;
he’s had a great fall;
He’s wild and raging with anger;
he hasn’t much time and he knows it. (Revelation 12:7-12)

“The one who conquers through faithfulness even unto death I will place next to Me on My throne,

just as I Myself conquered and took a place of honor with My Father on His throne.  (Revelation 3:21)

Yes and Amen!

I am Here am I



 “And neither will I walk off and leave you. That would be a sin against God! I’m staying right here at my post praying for you and teaching you the good and right way to live. But I beg of you, fear Godand worship him honestly and heartily. You’ve seen how greatly he has worked among you! Be warned: If you live badly, both you and your king will be thrown out.”

For God is sheer beauty,
all-generous in love,
loyal always and ever.

1 Samuel 12:23-25 The Message

God can’t stomach liars;
he loves the company of those who keep their word.


The God Who Forms Light and Darkness

God’s Message to his anointed,
    to Cyrus, whom he took by the hand
To give the task of taming the nations,
    of terrifying their kings—
He gave him free rein,
    no restrictions:
“I’ll go ahead of you,
    clearing and paving the road.
I’ll break down bronze city gates,
    smash padlocks, kick down barred entrances.
I’ll lead you to buried treasures,
    secret caches of valuables—
Confirmations that it is, in fact, I, God,
    the God of Israel, who calls you by your name.
It’s because of my dear servant Jacob,
    Israel my chosen,
That I’ve singled you out, called you by name,
    and given you this privileged work.
    And you don’t even know me!
I am God, the only God there is.
    Besides me there are no real gods.
I’m the one who armed you for this work,
    though you don’t even know me,
So that everyone, from east to west, will know
    that I have no god-rivals.
    I am God, the only God there is.
I form light and create darkness,
    I make harmonies and create discords.
    I, God, do all these things.

Isaiah 45:3-7 The Message 

Though my father and mother forsake me, the Lord will receive me.
Teach me your way, Lord;
lead me in a straight path
because of my oppressors.
Do not turn me over to the desire of my foes,
for false witnesses rise up against me,
spouting malicious accusations.
I remain confident of this:
I will see the goodness of the Lord
in the land of the living.
Wait for the Lord;
be strong and take heart
and wait for the Lord.


 “Yes,” said Jesus, “and you won’t regret it. No one who has sacrificed home, spouse, brothers and sisters, parents, children—whatever—will lose out. It will all come back multiplied many times over in your lifetime. And then the bonus of eternal life!”

Luke 18:29-30 The Message 

May each day begin and end with Your blessing, Amen.

Nashville—Awakening to a Train Whistle
Greetings from Music City. I awoke early this morning to the sound of a distant train whistle, the words of Bob Jones tumbling through my mind. “Any time you hear a train whistle just say this in your thinking, “I’m on that train, I’m on God’s glory train! My future is in His glory train and that’s where I’ll abide with Him!”

Bob’s word continues with an amazing promise that has defined our faith for every city. But it seems especially strong for Nashville, in a way I simply cannot explain. I guess it’s just now time.

And all of my time down here…

Friends and fellow Americans, “Your success as a family… our success as a nation… depends not on what happens inside the White House, but on what happens inside your house.” I pray these wise words of Barbara Bush should resonate with us, our nation has always and will always depend on the moral fiber of our families, nothing more, nothing less. God bless, America, and America, bless God!

Job: I was naked, with nothing, when I came from my mother’s womb;
        and naked, with nothing, I will return to the earth.
    The Eternal has given, and He has taken away.
        May the name of the Eternal One be blessed.  (Job 1:21)

Before time itself was measured, the Voice was speaking.

    The Voice was and is God.
This celestial Word remained ever present with the Creator;
His speech shaped the entire cosmos.
Immersed in the practice of creating,
    all things that exist were birthed in Him.  (John 1:1-3)


God created everything out of nothing

God Confronts Job

Have You Gotten to the Bottom of Things?

And now, finally, God answered Job from the eye of a violent storm. He said:

 “Why do you confuse the issue?
    Why do you talk without knowing what you’re talking about?
Pull yourself together, Job!
    Up on your feet! Stand tall!
I have some questions for you,
    and I want some straight answers.
Where were you when I created the earth?
    Tell me, since you know so much!
Who decided on its size? Certainly you’ll know that!
    Who came up with the blueprints and measurements?
How was its foundation poured,
    and who set the cornerstone,
While the morning stars sang in chorus
    and all the angels shouted praise?
And who took charge of the ocean
    when it gushed forth like a baby from the womb?
That was me! I wrapped it in soft clouds,
    and tucked it in safely at night.
Then I made a playpen for it,
    a strong playpen so it couldn’t run loose,
And said, ‘Stay here, this is your place.
    Your wild tantrums are confined to this place.’  (Job 38:2-11)


It’s God’s Spirit in a person, the breath of the Almighty One, that makes wise human insight possible. The experts have no corner on wisdom; getting old doesn’t guarantee good sense.

God takes away our fear through the faith that He gives us.

How blessed is the man who has made the LORD his trust,

And has not turned to the proud, nor to those who lapse into falsehood.

(Psalm 40:4)
He who gives attention to the word will find good,

And blessed is he who trusts in the LORD.  (Proverbs 16:20)

Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD And whose trust is the LORD.

(Jeremiah 17:7)


The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life.

How sweet are Your words to my taste! Yes, sweeter than honey to my mouth!

(Psalm 119:103)

God’s Fulfilling Love

In this way, love is made perfect among us,

so that we should have boldness on the Day of Judgment.

For just as He is, so also are we in this world. 

There is no fear in love, but perfect love drives out fear.

For fear has to do with punishment,

and the one who fears has not been made perfect in love.  (1 John 4:17-18)


Look! He is coming with the clouds, in glory. He will capture every eye, Even of those who pierced Him through. All the nations of the earth will be pierced with grief when He appears. Yes, may all this be done according to His plan. Amen.

The Wind Ran Out of Breath

Late that day he said to them, “Let’s go across to the other side.”

They took him in the boat as he was. Other boats came along. A huge storm came up. Waves poured into the boat, threatening to sink it.

And Jesus was in the stern, head on a pillow, sleeping!

They roused him, saying, “Teacher, is it nothing to you that we’re going down?”

Awake now, he told the wind to pipe down and said to the sea, “Quiet! Settle down!”

The wind ran out of breath; the sea became smooth as glass.

Jesus reprimanded the disciples:

“Why are you such cowards? Don’t you have any faith at all?”  (Mark 4:35-40)


“You of little faith,” Jesus replied, “why are you so afraid?” Then He got up and rebuked the winds and the sea, and it was perfectly calm.

But Jesus rebuked the demon. “Be silent!” He said. “Come out of him!”

Then the demon threw the man down before them all and came out without harming him.

The followers came to Jesus when He was alone.
They said, “Why were we not able to put the demon out?”
Jesus said to them, “Because you have so little faith.
For sure, I tell you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to over there,’ and it would move over.
You will be able to do anything. 
*But this kind of demon does not go out but by prayer and by going without food so you can pray better.”  (Matthew 17:19-21)

*by nothing but by prayer and fasting…Jesus (quoting Deuteronomy):

It is written, “Man does not live by bread alone.

Rather, he lives on every word that comes from the mouth of the Eternal One.”

(Matthew 4:4)



God, the Eternal One, who made the starry skies, stretched them tight above and around; Who cast the shimmering globe of earth and filled it with life; who gives breath and animates the people; Who walks and talks with life-giving spirit has this to say: Eternal One: I am the Eternal One. By righteousness I have called you. I will take you by the hand and keep you safe. You are given as a covenant between Me and the people: a light for the nations, a shining beacon to the world. You will open blind eyes so they will see again. You will lead prisoners, blinking, out from caverns of captivity, from cells pitch black with despair.

And I pledge that I will pour out a spirit of grace and pleas for mercy

on the family of David and the citizens of Jerusalem.

As a result, they will look upon Me whom they pierced,

they will grieve over Him as one grieves for an only child,

and they will moan and weep for Him as one weeps for a firstborn son. 

On that day, the grieving in Jerusalem will be as great as the pagans’ grieving ritual honoring Hadadrimmon on the plain of Megiddo each year.

We call Abraham “father” not because he got God’s attention by living like a saint,

but because God made something out of Abraham when he was a nobody.

Isn’t that what we’ve always read in Scripture, God saying to Abraham,

“I set you up as father of many peoples”?

Abraham was first named “father”

and then became a father because he dared to trust God to do what only God could do:

raise the dead to life, with a word make something out of nothing.

When everything was hopeless, Abraham believed anyway,

deciding to live not on the basis of what he saw he couldn’t do

but on what God said he would do.

And so he was made father of a multitude of peoples.

God himself said to him, “You’re going to have a big family, Abraham!”  (Romans 4:17-18)

Jesus (quoting Deuteronomy): It is written, “Man does not live by bread alone.

Rather, he lives on every word that comes from the mouth of the Eternal One.”

(Matthew 4:4)


But if your eye is clouded or evil, then your body will be filled with evil and dark clouds. And the darkness that takes over the body of a child of God who has gone astray—that is the deepest, darkest darkness there is.

True Wisdom Comes from God

If you are wise and understand God’s ways, prove it by living an honorable life,

doing good works with the humility that comes from wisdom.

But if you are bitterly jealous and there is selfish ambition in your heart,

don’t cover up the truth with boasting and lying.

For jealousy and selfishness are not God’s kind of wisdom.

Such things are earthly, unspiritual, and demonic.

For wherever there is jealousy and selfish ambition,

there you will find disorder and evil of every kind.

But the wisdom from above is first of all pure.

It is also peace loving, gentle at all times, and willing to yield to others.

It is full of mercy and the fruit of good deeds. It shows no favoritism and is always sincere. And those who are peacemakers will plant seeds of peace

and reap a harvest of righteousness.  (James 3:13-18)


But you desire honesty from the womb, teaching me wisdom even there. Make straight paths for your feet, so that the lame will not be debilitated, but rather healed. Pursue peace with all men, as well as holiness, without which no one will see the Lord.

Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.

But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves to God, the fruit you reap leads to holiness, and the outcome is eternal life.  (Romans 6:22)

So then, let us pursue what leads to peace and to mutual edification.  (Romans 14:19)

Remember, man does not live by bread alone but by every Word that proceeds

out of the mouth of God…DEMONSTRATE Your ways, O Eternal One.
    Teach me to understand so I can follow.
EASE me down the path of Your truth.
    FEED me Your word
    because You are the True God who has saved me.
    I wait all day long, hoping, trusting in You.  (Matthew 4:4, Psalm 25:4-5)

Make me hear of Your faithful love in the morning,
    for I trust in You.
Teach me how I should walk,
    for I offer my soul up to You.  (Psalm 143:8)

He has made us to be a kingdom, priests to His God and Father—

to Him be the glory and power forever and ever! Amen.
