lamed-hey (vindication)…the Lord had given HIS Word on vindication it is Psalm 26.
It IS THROUGH HIS REDEMPTION.
Vindication (35) Lamed (authority) and HEY (means “what comes from”)
When there is an unresolved question or dispute among men, a ruling is necessary from a higher authority.
The idea of vindication carries with it some sort of CLOSURE, or conclusion.
VINDICATION = CONCLUSION
NOW IS The time of vindication for all who retain hope of the promise.
GOD VINDICATES OUR FAITH. GOD DOES WONDERS.
Miracles happen to those who believe.
Being NOBLE minded = receiving the Word with eagerness, and examining the Scriptures daily to see whether these things are so. Study to show yourself
APPROVED a work man that rightly divides the Word of Truth.
Scriptures VINDICATE. We are vindicated by receiving the Word of Truth. We are the good soil that produces even up to 100-fold.
We desire to know the Truth as David, said “Your Word I have hid in my heart that I might not sin against Thee.”
We don’t question the Word, we examine it we draw closer to it.
We desire to KNOW the TRUTH.
You shall KNOW the TRUTH & the TRUTH shall make you FREE.
Those who are vindictive & jealous will NOT be vindicated (declared innocent).
The Truth will stand up and deliver us.
Tearing Down Barriers
In 2 Cor. 10:6, the Bible says to punish all disobedience (to vindicate all who hear amiss.)
If we fail to realize we have been delivered from accusation through Christ, we will allow our rights as God’s children to be violated.
The world is unprincipled. It’s dog-eat-dog out there! The world doesn’t fight fair.
But we don’t live or fight our battles that way—never have and never will.
The tools of our trade aren’t for marketing or manipulation, but they are for demolishing that entire massively corrupt culture. We use our powerful God-tools for smashing warped philosophies, tearing down barriers erected against the truth of God, fitting every loose thought and emotion and impulse into the structure of life shaped by Christ.
Our tools are ready at hand for clearing the ground of every obstruction and building lives of obedience into maturity.
(2 Corinthians 10)
Who the Son sets free is free indeed!
Not be as Abram was with Sarai and Abimelech
or as Isaac was with Rebeccah because then we cause others to be UNFRUITFUL (barren); perhaps our fear or self vindication results in our own seasons of barrenness (unproductive, unfruitfulness)?
Come Thou long-awaited Jesus born to set Thy people FREE.
Jesus asks the question when He returns will He find faith?
The LORD is our DEFENSE.
Definition of ATONEMENT
All obstacles to reconciliation with God are removed through His sacrifice. Atonement is achieved through the death and resurrection of Jesus the Messiah of God.
But if Christ is in you, your body is dead because of sin,
yet your spirit is alive because of righteousness.
if we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. (1 John 1:9)
LIKE THE ONE THIEF ON THE CROSS!
“It is finished” = CONCLUSION
The earth and all that’s upon it belong to the Eternal.
The world is His, with every living creature on it.
With seas as foundations and rivers as boundaries, He shaped the continents, fashioned the earth.
Who can possibly ascend the mountain of the Eternal?
Who can stand before Him in sacred spaces?
Only those whose hands have been washed and hearts made pure, men and women who are not given to lies or deception.
The Eternal will stand close to them with blessing and mercy at hand, and the God who redeems will right what has been wrong.
These are the people who chase after Him;
[like Jacob, they look for the face of God]
City gates—open wide! Ancient doors—stand back!
For the glorious King shall soon pass your way.
Who is the glorious King? The Eternal who is powerful and mightily equipped for battle.
City gates—open wide! Ancient doors—stand back!
For the glorious King shall soon pass your way.
Who is the glorious King? The Eternal, Commander of heaven’s army, He is the glorious King.
It is impossible to please the Lord without faith and faith works by love.
As David consoled and prayed for Bath-Sheba AND she conceived and bore Solomon!
Solomon whose name was Jedediah “Beloved of God.”
As Jesus said to Peter “if you love Me, feed My lambs, feed My sheep“
Love the unloved — Step into the gap be as the Good Samaritan
Greater love has no man than this–to lay down one’s life for a friend.
Step into the gap for those who can’t stand up
(this is why we are upright to stand with God for others by walking with Him in truth).
Intercede = Stand in the gap.
As Jesus did on the cross, “Father forgive them for they know NOT what they are doing.”
Conclusion = “It is finished“
And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement
God, in your grace, have mercy on me; in Your great compassion, blot out my crimes.
Wash me completely from my guilt, and cleanse me from my sin.
For I know my crimes, my sin confronts me all the time.
Against You, You only, have I sinned and done what is evil from Your perspective;
so that You are right in accusing me and justified in passing sentence.
True, I was born guilty, was a sinner from the moment my mother conceived me.
Still, You want truth in the inner person; so make me know wisdom in my inmost heart.
Sprinkle me with hyssop, and I will be clean; wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.
Let me hear the sound of joy and gladness, so that the bones You crushed can rejoice.
Turn away Your face from my sins, and blot out all my crimes.
Create in me a clean heart, God; renew in me a resolute spirit.
Don’t thrust me away from Your presence, don’t take Your Ruach Kodesh away from me.
Restore my joy in Your salvation, and let a willing spirit uphold me.
Then I will teach the wicked Your ways,and sinners will return to You.
Rescue me from the guilt of shedding blood, God, God of my salvation!
Then my tongue will sing about Your righteousness —
Adonai, open my lips; then my mouth will praise You.
For You don’t want sacrifices, or I would give them; You don’t take pleasure in burnt offerings.
My sacrifice to God is a broken spirit; God, You won’t spurn a broken, chastened heart.
In Your good pleasure, make Tziyon prosper; rebuild the walls of Yerushalayim.
Then You will delight in righteous sacrifices, in burnt offerings and whole burnt offerings; then they will offer bulls on Your altar.
Don’t fear, O soil; be glad! rejoice!
for Adonai has done great things.
Don’t be afraid, wild animals;
for the desert pastures are green, the trees are putting out their fruit,
the fig tree and vine are giving full yield.
Be glad, people of Tziyon! rejoice in Adonai your God!
For He is giving you the right amount of rain in the fall,
He makes the rain come down for you,
the fall and spring rains — this is what He does first.
Then the floors will be full of grain and the vats overflow with wine and olive oil.
“I will restore to you the years that the locusts ate, the grasshoppers, shearer-worms and cutter-worms,
my great army that I sent against you.
MYou will eat until you are satisfied
and will praise the name of Adonai your God,
who has done with you such wonders.
Then My people will never again be shamed.
You will know that I am with Isra’el and that I am Adonai your God,
and that there is no other.
Then My people will never again be shamed.
“Here is the sort of fast I want —
releasing those unjustly bound,
untying the thongs of the yoke,
letting the oppressed go free,
breaking every yoke,
sharing your food with the hungry,
taking the homeless poor into your house,
clothing the naked when you see them,
fulfilling your duty to your kinsmen!”
Then your light will burst forth like the morning,
your new skin will quickly grow over your wound;
your righteousness will precede you,
and Adonai’s glory will follow you.
The Spirit of Adonai Elohim is upon me, because Adonai has anointed me to announce good news to the poor.
He has sent me to heal the brokenhearted; to proclaim freedom to the captives,
to let out into light those bound in the dark;
to proclaim the year of the favor of Adonai and the day of vengeance of our God;
to comfort all who mourn, yes, provide for those in Tziyon who mourn, giving them garlands instead of ashes,
the oil of gladness instead of mourning, a cloak of praise instead of a heavy spirit,
so that they will be called oaks of righteousness planted by Adonai, in which he takes pride.
They will rebuild the ancient ruins, restore sites long destroyed;
they will renew the ruined cities, destroyed many generations ago.
Strangers will stand and feed your flocks, foreigners plow your land and tend your vines;
but you will be called cohanim of Adonai, spoken of as ministers to our God.
You will feed on the wealth of nations, and revel in their riches.
Because of your shame, which was doubled, and because they cried, “They deserve disgrace,”
therefore in their land what they own will be doubled, and joy forever will be theirs.
“For I, Adonai, love justice; I hate robbery for burnt offerings.
So I will be faithful to reward them and make an eternal covenant with them.”
Their descendants will be known among the nations,
their offspring among the peoples; all who see them will acknowledge that they are the seed Adonai has blessed.
I am so joyful in Adonai!
My soul rejoices in my God, for He has clothed me in salvation,
dressed me with a robe of triumph, like a bridegroom wearing a festive turban, like a bride adorned with her jewels.
For just as the earth brings forth its plants, or a garden makes its plants spring up,
so Adonai, God, will cause victory and glory to spring up before all nations. (Isaiah 61)
“Sing, barren woman who has never had a child! Burst into song, shout for joy, you who have never been in labor!
For the deserted wife will have more children than the woman who is living with her husband,” says Adonai.
Enlarge the space for your tent, extend the curtains of your dwelling; do not hold back, lengthen your cords,
make your tent pegs firm.
For you will spread out to the right and the left, your descendants will possess the nations
and inhabit the desolated cities.
Don’t be afraid, for you won’t be ashamed; don’t be discouraged, for you won’t be disgraced.
You will forget the shame of your youth, no longer remember the dishonor of being widowed.
For your husband is your Maker,
Adonai–Tzva’ot is His name. The Holy One of Isra’el is your Redeemer.
He will be called the God of all the earth.
For Adonai has called you back
like a wife abandoned and grief-stricken; “A wife married in her youth cannot be rejected,” says your God.
“Briefly I abandoned you, but with great compassion I am taking you back.
I was angry for a moment and hid My face from you;
but with everlasting grace I will have compassion on you,”says Adonai your Redeemer.
“For Me this is like Noach’s flood. Just as I swore that no flood like Noach’s would ever again cover the earth,
so now I swear that never again will I be angry with you or rebuke you.
For the mountains may leave and the hills be removed, but My grace will never leave you,and My covenant of peace will not be removed,”
says Adonai, who has compassion on you.
“Storm-ravaged [city], unconsoled,I will set your stones in the finest way, lay your foundations with sapphires,
make your windows shine with rubies, your gates with garnet, your walls with gemstones.
All your children will be taught by Adonai; your children will have great peace.
In righteousness you will be established, far from oppression, with nothing to fear; far from ruin, for it will not come near you.
Any alliance that forms against you will not be My doing; whoever tries to form such an alliance will fall because of you.
it is I who created the craftsman who blows on the coals and forges weapons suited to their purpose;
I also created the destroyer to work havoc. No weapon made will prevail against you.
In court you will refute every accusation. The servants of Adonai inherit all this;
the reward for their righteousness is from Me,”
says Adonai. (Isaiah 54))
LIKE THE WOMAN WITH THE ISSUE OF BLOOD (RESTORED!)
The trial, probation, and times of testing in the wilderness teach us that it is a dry, weary BARREN place yet this is the same place Jesus where passed the test and to which His Bride finds rest and refreshing; the same place where the children of Israel complained against God and died yet the LORD brought their children through the same wilderness into the Promised Land. They learned that the Rock was with them even in the middle of a wilderness place and to them was revealed, the water that flowed from the Rock (Jesus).
The generation that arrived the other side Jordan with Joshua and Caleb knew that the LORD was with them no matter
how difficult or far the destination seemed; He was their Way, their Truth and their Life.
“But he knows where I am going. And when he tests me, I will come out as pure as gold. (Job 23:10)
These have come so that the proven genuineness of your faith–of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire–may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed.
(1 Peter 1:7) I shall come forth purified, when my trial is over.
Praise from the Great Multitude
“Amen, blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and might, be to our God forever and ever. Amen.”
Then one of the elders answered, saying to me,
“These who are clothed in the white robes, who are they, and where have they come from?”
I said to him, “My lord, you know.”
And he said to me,
“These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation, and they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
God is in control.
Remember, it was when Job was tested and was proven faithful, God granted him more than he had ever had.
Thank God for giving us His Word (Jesus) who is the Author & FINISHER of our faith.
Ask Him to allow me to show His strength through the gift that He had given me; then put it all in His hands.
The End is already in His hands
But we must walk in agreement and alignment with His Word, Will by the Holy Spirit.
Reliance and Perseverance as the mines hold the raw material which must be excavated, forged and purified.
Again, my loved ones, do not seek revenge; instead, allow God’s wrath to make sure justice is served.
Turn it over to Him. For the Scriptures say, “Revenge is Mine. I will settle all scores.” (Romans 12:19)
As I turn, not to myself, but to God, letting go of this world, and its deceitfulness, I am freed to receive double for my trouble: SO GOD GETS THE GLORY NOT MAN!
OUT OF YOUR BELLY SHALL FLOW RIVERS OF LIVING WATER
JESUS IS WITH US ALWAYS EVEN TO THE END OF THE AGE
LET THE RIVER FLOW!
HIS WORD AS IN ISAIAH 55 DOES NOT RETURN TO HIM VOID (EMPTY)
Blessing and Vindication
But from everlasting to everlasting the LORD’s love is with those who fear Him, and His righteousness with their children’s children–(Psalm 103:17) LORD, hear my prayer, listen to my cry for mercy; in Your faithfulness and righteousness come to my relief. (Psalm 143:1) In Your righteousness, rescue me and deliver me; turn Your ear to me and save me. (Psalm 71:2)
May my supplication come before You; deliver me according to Your promise. (Psalm 119:170)
A battle broke out in heaven.
Michael, along with his heavenly messengers, clashed against the dragon.
The dragon and his messengers returned the fight, but they did not prevail and were defeated.
As a result, there was no place left for them in heaven.
So the great dragon, that ancient serpent who is called the devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world,
was cast down to the earth along with his messengers.
Then I heard a great voice in heaven.
Now the salvation and the power
and the kingdom of our God
and the authority of His Anointed One have come.
For the accuser of our brothers and sisters,
who relentlessly accuses them day and night before our God,
has been cast down and silenced.
By the blood of the Lamb
and the word of their witnesses,
they have become victorious over him,
For they did not hold on to their lives, even under threat of death.
Therefore, rejoice, all you heavens;
celebrate, all you who live in them.
But disaster will befall the earth and the sea,
for the devil has come down to your spheres,
And he is incredibly angry
because he knows his time is nearly over.
When the dragon realized he had been cast down to the earth, he pursued the mother of the male infant.
In order to escape the serpent, she was given the two wings of the great eagle to
fly deeper into the wilderness to her own special place
where she would find sustenance for a time, and times, and half a time.
Then from his mouth the serpent spewed water like a raging river that chased after the woman,
trying to sweep her away in the flood.
But the earth came to her rescue.
It opened its gaping mouth and swallowed the river that spewed from the dragon’s mouth.
As a result, the dragon was enraged at the woman and went away to make war on the rest of her children—those who keep the commandments of God and hold fast to the testimony of Jesus.
And [the dragon]stood waiting on the sand of the seashore. (Revelation 12:7-18)
A song for those journeying to worship.
I look up at the vast size of the mountains—from where will my help come in times of trouble?
The Eternal Creator of heaven and earth and these mountainswill send the help I need.
He holds you firmly in place; He will not let you fall.
He who keeps you will never take His eyes off you and never drift off to sleep.
What a relief! The One who watches over Israel never leaves for rest or sleep.
The Eternal keeps you safe,so close to Him that His shadow is a cooling shade to you.
Neither bright light of sunnor dim light of moon will harm you.
The Eternal will keep you safefrom all of life’s evils,
From your first breath to the last breath you breathe,
from this day and forever.
BE strong and courageous; do not be afraid! But with us is the LORD our God, to HELP us to fight our battles.
And remember, the battle BELONGS to the LORD!
“Listen to Me, Jacob, Israel, whom I have called: I am He; I am the First and I am the Last.” (Isaiah 48:12)
“I am the Aleph and the Tav, HaRishon (The First) and HaAcharon (The Last),
HaReshit (The Beginning) and HaTachlit
In the Messiah He chose us in love before the creation of the universe to be holy and without defect in His presence.
But the people of Israel, who pursued the law as the way of righteousness, have not attained their goal.
(Romans 9:31) Since they did not know the righteousness of God and sought to establish their own, they did not submit to God’s righteousness. (Romans 10:3)
The LORD detests the way of the wicked, but He loves those who pursue righteousness. (Proverbs 15:9)
For who is God besides the LORD? And who is the Rock except our God? (Psalm 18:31)
Salvation for Zion
Listen to me, you who pursue righteousness,
Who seek the LORD:
Look to the rock from which you were hewn And to the quarry from which you were dug.
Look to Abraham your father And to Sarah who gave birth to you in pain;
When he was but one I called him, Then I blessed him and multiplied him.
This was to fulfill what had been spoken through the prophet,
“I will open my mouth in parables,
I will say what has been hidden since the creation of the universe.”
(Matthew 13:35) This is what the LORD says– Israel’s King and Redeemer, the LORD Almighty:
“ I am the First and I am the Last; apart from Me there is no God.” (Isaiah 44:6) “Who has done this and carried it through, calling forth the generations from the beginning? I, the LORD–with the first of them and with the last–I am He.” (Isaiah 41:4)
“See now that I Myself am He! There is no god besides Me. I put to death and I bring to life, I have wounded and I will heal, and no one can deliver out of My hand.” (Deuteronomy 32:39)
Truly He is my Rock and my Salvation; He is my fortress, I will never be shaken. (Psalm 62:2)
I Will Sing Of His Love Forever!
I shall also set his hand on the sea And his right hand on the rivers. He will cry to Me, ‘You are my Father, My God, and the rock of my salvation.‘ I also shall make him My firstborn, The highest of the kings of the earth. (Psalm 89:25-27)
The LORD lives! Praise be to my Rock! Exalted be my God, the Rock, my Savior!
Next the angel showed me the river of the water of life, sparkling like crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb. Between the main street and the river was the Tree of Life producing twelve kinds of fruit, a different kind every month; and the leaves of the tree were for healing the nations —no longer will there be any curses. The throne of God and of the Lamb will be in the city, and his servants will worship Him; they will see His face, and His name will be on their foreheads. Night will no longer exist, so they will need neither the light of a lamp nor the light of the sun, because Adonai, God, will shine upon them. And they will reign as kings forever and ever.
Then he said to me,
“These words are true and trustworthy: Adonai, God of the spirits of the prophets, sent his angel to show his servants the things that must happen soon.”
“Look! I am coming very soon. Blessed is the person who obeys the words of the prophecy written in this book!”
Then I, Yochanan, the one hearing and seeing these things, when I heard and saw them, I fell down to worship at the feet of the angel showing them to me. But he said to me, “Don’t do that! I am only a fellow-servant with you and your brothers, the prophets and the people who obey the words in this book. Worship God!”
Then he said to me, “Don’t seal up the words of the prophecy in this book, because the time of their fulfillment is near.
“Whoever keeps acting wickedly, let him go on acting wickedly;
whoever is filthy, let him go on being made filthy.
“Also, whoever is righteous, let him go on doing what is righteous;
and whoever is holy, let him go on being made holy.”
“Pay attention!” [says Yeshua,] “I am coming soon, and my rewards are with me to give to each person according to what he has done. I am the ‘A’ and the ‘Z,’ the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.”
How blessed are those who wash their robes, so that they have the right to eat from the Tree of Life and go through the gates into the city! Outside are the homosexuals, those involved with the occult and with drugs, the sexually immoral, murderers, idol-worshippers, and everyone who loves and practices falsehood. “I, Yeshua, have sent my angel to give you this testimony for the Messianic communities. I am the Root and Offspring of David, the bright Morning Star. The Spirit and the Bride say, ‘Come!’ Let anyone who hears say, ‘Come!’ And let anyone who is thirsty come — let anyone who wishes, take the water of life free of charge.”
I warn everyone hearing the words of the prophecy in this book that if anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues written in this book. And if anyone takes anything away from the words in the book of this prophecy, God will take away his share in the Tree of Life and the holy city, as described in this book.
“The one who is testifying to these things says, ‘Yes, I am coming soon!’”
Amen! Come, Lord Yeshua!
May the grace of the Lord Yeshua be with all!
So if you were raised along with the Messiah, then seek the things above, where the Messiah is sitting at the right hand of God.
Focus your minds on the things above, not on things here on earth.
For you have died, and your life is hidden with the Messiah in God.
When the Messiah, who is our life, appears, then you too will appear with Him in glory!
“So don’t be anxious, asking, ‘What will we eat?,’ ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘How will we be clothed?’
For it is the pagans who set their hearts on all these things. Your heavenly Father knows you need them all.
But seek first His Kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.
Don’t worry about tomorrow — tomorrow will worry about itself! (Matthew 6:31-34)
We are not seeking knowledge but to Know the One who is Faithful and True.
And to know even as we are known.
The Way of Wisdom
Give instruction to a wise man and he will be still wiser, Teach a righteous man and he will increase his learning.
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.
For by me your days will be multiplied, And years of life will be added to you. (Proverbs 9:9-11)
Consider Job: he didn’t know why he was tested; it was to shut the devil up!
Silence the accuser!
And the LORD answered me: “Write the vision; make it plain on tablets, so he may run who reads it. (Habakkuk 2:2)
Finally, grow powerful in union with the Lord, in union with His mighty strength!
Use all the armor and weaponry that God provides, so that you will be able to stand against the deceptive tactics of the Adversary. For we are not struggling against human beings, but against the rulers, authorities and cosmic powers governing this darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realm. So take up every piece of war equipment God provides; so that when the evil day comes, you will be able to resist; and when the battle is won, you will still be standing. Therefore, stand! Have the belt of truth buckled around your waist, put on righteousness for a breastplate,
and wear on your feet the readiness that comes from the Good News of shalom.
Always carry the shield of trust, with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the Evil One.
And take the helmet of deliverance; along with the sword given by the Spirit, that is, the Word of God;
as you pray at all times, with all kinds of prayers and requests, in the Spirit, vigilantly and persistently, for all God’s people. (Ephesians 6:10-18)
Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us. (Galatians 3:13)
Lord Jesus, help me to welcome difficulties. Let them test my strength and build my character as I draw these from You. Amen.
As you come into Agreement with His Word, you are in proper Alignment to receive revelation given by His Holy Spirit whose purpose is to lead and guide you into all Truth.
A Call to Repentance
Come, let us return to the Lord.
He has torn us to pieces;
now He will heal us.
He has injured us;
now He will bandage our wounds.
In just a short time He will restore us,
so that we may live in His presence.
Oh, that we might know the Lord!
Let us press on to know Him.
He will respond to us as surely as the arrival of dawn
or the coming of rains in early spring.
Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God. (2 Corinthians 5;20)
