“My Exceeding Joy”

November 18, 2019

“My Exceeding Joy”

Blessings folk!

The joy of the Lord.

The joy of the Lord can be had by all believers, even in the most difficult of times.

Hear the Word of King David…

Psa 43:1-5

Vindicate me, O God, and plead my case against an ungodly nation;
O deliver me from the deceitful and unjust man!

For You are the God of my strength; why have You rejected me?
Why do I go mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?

O send out Your light and Your truth, let them lead me;
Let them bring me to Your holy hill
And to Your dwelling places.

Then I will go to the altar of God,
To God my exceeding joy;
And upon the lyre I shall praise You, O God, my God.

Why are you in despair, O my soul?
And why are you disturbed within me?
Hope in God, for I shall again praise Him,
The help of my countenance and my God.

David needed deliverance.
David desired vindication.
David knew that the Lord was his strength, yet David felt abandoned.
David cried for the Lord to send His Light and His truth to lead him.
David desired to go to the altar of God to praise Him.
David called God “my exceeding joy”…literally means “the gladness of my joy”.

Is the Lord God our exceeding joy…at all times?

Do what David did.
Examine yourself, honestly.
Hope in God.
The Lord will lift up your countenance.

“Sons of God Shouted for Joy"

November 17, 2019

“Sons of God Shouted for Joy"

Blessings folk!

The Lord has a family
A family consisting of divine beings.
A family consisting of human beings.

Both can express joy.

A portion of the divine beings did so at creation…

Job 38:4-7
“Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth?
Tell Me, if you have understanding,

Who set its measurements? Since you know.
Or who stretched the line on it?

“On what were its bases sunk?
Or who laid its cornerstone,

When the morning stars sang together
And all the sons of God shouted for joy?

When the foundation of the earth was laid…
The morning stars sang together.
The sons of God shouted for joy!

Joy!
In the unseen realm of divine beings.

Joy!
In the seen realm of human beings.

Rejoice!

The Joy of the Lord.

Live in it.
Manifest it.

Psa 32:11
Be glad in the LORD and rejoice, you righteous ones;
And shout for joy, all you who are upright in heart.

Sing for joy in the LORD, O you righteous ones;
Praise is becoming to the upright.

Allow the Lord to move through you in this way.
Fear not.

We are vessels of Joy!

 Psa 20:5
We will sing for joy over your victory,

Joy!
When enemies are defeated.

Joy!

“Sing For Joy”

November 14, 2019

“Sing For Joy”

Blessings folk!

Choose joy!

Hear the Word of the Lord related to joy…

Psa 5:11
But let all who take refuge in You be glad,
Let them ever sing for joy;
And may You shelter them,
That those who love Your name may exult in You.

Psa 16:11
You will make known to me the path of life;
In Your presence is fullness of joy;
In Your right hand there are pleasures forever.

Take refuge in the Lord - be glad.
Sing for joy unto the Lord. The Lord shelters us.
Love the Lord.
Exult (rejoice greatly, be jubilant in triumph…especially in victory) in Him.

The Lord will make know to each of us the path of life.

It is only in the Presence of the Lord that there is fullness of joy.

All the things that bring us temporary, temporal, fleshly joy quickly fade.

The joy of the Lord is everlasting.

His pleasures are forever.

What brings you pleasure?
In what do you find joy?

Examine yourself…

“Rejoice in the Lord Always”

November 13, 2019

“Rejoice in the Lord Always”

Blessings folk!

Rejoice in the Lord!

When?

Phl 4:4
Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice!


We are to rejoice in the Lord always.

We are not necessarily “rejoicing” in situation nor circumstance.

We are rejoicing in the Lord!

In His Might.
In His Power.
In His Splendor.
In all that He is.

Rejoice in that.

Philippians is the great biblical letter of “how to have joy”.

Read it sometime.

Phl 3:1
Finally, my brethren, rejoice in the Lord.
To write the same things again is no trouble to me, and it is a safeguard for you.

Note the instructions to rejoice are written to Believers.

We can choose to not rejoice.
We can choose to rejoice.

Choose joy.

“O Lord…Contend…”

November 12, 2019

“O Lord…Contend…”

Blessings folk!!

Rejoice in the Lord…

Psa 35:9

And my soul shall rejoice in the LORD;
It shall exult in His salvation.

Does your soul rejoice in the Lord?
Does it rejoice only in good times?

Now, read the context…

Psa 35:1-8

A Psalm of David.
Contend, O LORD, with those who contend with me;
Fight against those who fight against me.

Take hold of buckler and shield
And rise up for my help.

Draw also the spear and the battle-axe to meet those who pursue me;
Say to my soul, “I am your salvation.”

Let those be ashamed and dishonored who seek my life;
Let those be turned back and humiliated who devise evil against me.

Let them be like chaff before the wind,
With the angel of the LORD driving them on.

Let their way be dark and slippery,
With the angel of the LORD pursuing them.

For without cause they hid their net for me;
Without cause they dug a pit for my soul.

Let destruction come upon him unawares,
And let the net which he hid catch himself;
Into that very destruction let him fall.

David had people contending against him.
David called on the Lord to fight against those that fought against him.

David called for the Lord to:

  • Fight
  • Rise up to help
  • Shield
  • Draw the spear/battle axe
  • Declare to David that “I am your salvation”

David called upon the Lord to deal with his enemies:
  • Shame them
  • Dishonor them
  • Turn them back
  • Humiliate them
  • Drive them on
  • Be as chaff
  • Let their way be dark/slippery
  • Bring destruction upon them
  • Catch them in their own nets

You noted the call for the angel of the Lord to drive and pursue?

The Lord does the same today…

David rejoiced in this time.
So should we.

Romans Part 1 - Lesson 9

The Word: Episode 1104 Hebrews 12:12-17

“It Will Be Said…”

November 11, 2019

“It Will Be Said…”

Blessings folk!

Fear not anything other than the Lord.

It is a decision.
It is a declaration of faith.

Rather, rejoice in the Lord.

A dear, local friend stated it well one day - “I choose joy…”.

That is it.

As Believers, we can choose to walk in the joy of the Lord or in the fear of man/circumstances.

Psa 40:16
Let all who seek You rejoice and be glad in You;
Let those who love Your salvation say continually,
“The LORD be magnified!”

Isa 25:9
And it will be said in that day,
“Behold, this is our God for whom we have waited that He might save us.
This is the LORD for whom we have waited;
Let us rejoice and be glad in His salvation.”

It will be said in that day…
It can be said today…

Rejoice in the Lord.

Fear not!

“Fear the Lord…”

November 10, 2019

“Fear the Lord…”

Blessings folk!

Fear is not of the Lord.

We are to fear the Lord.

Psa 34:9
O fear the LORD, you His saints;
For to those who fear Him there is no want.


Yet many (a majority?) of professing believers are consumed with fear.
Fear of man.
Fear of situation/circumstance.
Fear of flesh.

Many have crossed over to idolatry.
They give greater heed to their fear than they do to the Lord.

We have addressed this before, but we do well to remember.

It has been said that “fear” is mentioned some 365 times in the Word - “one for each day of the year”.

Hear the Word of the Lord through David to his son Solomon relate to the building of the temple…

1 Ch 28:20
Then David said to his son Solomon,
“Be strong and courageous, and act;
do not fear nor be dismayed,
for the LORD God, my God, is with you.
He will not fail you nor forsake you until all the work for the service of the house of the LORD is finished.

Let us take this instructions for ourselves.

Be strong.
Be courageous.
Act.
Do not fear.
Do not be dismayed.

Why?
How?

For the Lord God is with you.
The Lord will not fail you.
The Lord will not forsake you.

Until your work is done…
Until we see Him face to face…

“Now I Declare New Things…”

November 9, 2019

“Now I Declare New Things…”

Blessings folk!

Now, let us reread Is 42:1-7 with concluding verses 8-9.

Isa 42:1-9

“Behold, My Servant, whom I uphold;
My chosen one in whom My soul delights.
I have put My Spirit upon Him;
He will bring forth justice to the nations.

“He will not cry out or raise His voice,
Nor make His voice heard in the street.

“A bruised reed He will not break
And a dimly burning wick He will not extinguish;
He will faithfully bring forth justice.

“He will not be disheartened or crushed
Until He has established justice in the earth;
And the coastlands will wait expectantly for His law.”

Thus says God the LORD,
Who created the heavens and stretched them out,
Who spread out the earth and its offspring,
Who gives breath to the people on it
And spirit to those who walk in it,

“I am the LORD, I have called You in righteousness,
I will also hold You by the hand and watch over You,
And I will appoint You as a covenant to the people,
As a light to the nations,

To open blind eyes,
To bring out prisoners from the dungeon
And those who dwell in darkness from the prison.

“I am the LORD, that is My name;
I will not give My glory to another,
Nor My praise to graven images.

“Behold, the former things have come to pass,
Now I declare new things;
Before they spring forth I proclaim them to you.”

The Lord is the Lord.
He will not give His glory to any other.

Then this great statement of hope…
The former things have come to pass…
The Lord declares new things…
Before they spring forth He proclaims them to us…

The past is the past.
The Lord has/declares new things for each True Believer.
The Lord has planned them before He proclaims them to us.

Fear not.
Live in His plan!

“I Have Called You…”

November 8, 2019

“I Have Called You…”

Blessings folk!

Father’s Chosen One, His Servant, will bring forth justice.

Give heed to what Father says…

Isa 42:5-7

Thus says God the LORD,
Who created the heavens and stretched them out,
Who spread out the earth and its offspring,
Who gives breath to the people on it
And spirit to those who walk in it,

“I am the LORD, I have called You in righteousness,
I will also hold You by the hand and watch over You,
And I will appoint You as a covenant to the people,
As a light to the nations,

To open blind eyes,
To bring out prisoners from the dungeon
And those who dwell in darkness from the prison.

God the Lord:

  • Created the heavens
  • Stretched out the heavens
  • Spread out the earth
  • Spread out the earth’s “offspring”- vegetation.
  • Gives breath to people on the earth
  • Gives spirit to those who walk on the earth

God the Father:
  • Called “You” - the Servant, the Chosen One, (Jesus) in righteousness
  • Will hold You by the hand
  • Will watch over You
  • Appoints You
    • As a covenant to the people
    • Light to the nations
    • To open blind eyes
    • Release prisoners form dungeons/prisons

The Lord bring justice through the Lord Jesus Christ.

“Bruised Reed. Dim Wick”

November 7, 2019

“Bruised Reed. Dim Wick”

Blessings folk!

We read Is 42:1-2 yesterday.
Now read a little more…

Isa 42:1-4

“Behold, My Servant, whom I uphold;
My chosen one in whom My soul delights.
I have put My Spirit upon Him;
He will bring forth justice to the nations.

“He will not cry out or raise His voice,
Nor make His voice heard in the street.

“A bruised reed He will not break
And a dimly burning wick He will not extinguish;
He will faithfully bring forth justice.

“He will not be disheartened or crushed
Until He has established justice in the earth;
And the coastlands will wait expectantly for His law.

The Lord will bring forth justice to the nations/Gentiles.

He will do so with compassion.
He will not break them…though they be as a bruised reed.
He will not extinguish them…though they be barely burning.

The Lord will be faithful in justice.

He will establish justice in the earth.

Three times “justice” is mentioned.

True justice is only found in the Lord.

“My Servant”

November 6, 2019

“My Servant”

Blessings folk!

Let us look at Isaiah 42.
Portions are familiar.
Most are not.

The Father is speaking of His Servant - His Son, Jesus.

Note what He says…

Isa 42:1-2

“Behold, My Servant, whom I uphold;
My chosen one in whom My soul delights.
I have put My Spirit upon Him;
He will bring forth justice to the nations.

“He will not cry out or raise His voice,
Nor make His voice heard in the street.

Father “upholds” - “to hold fast” - His Servant.
His Servant is His Chosen One.
Father delights in Him.
Father put His Spirit upon Him…we see Father/Servant=Son/Spirit.

What will the Servant do?
Bring forth justice to the nations - to the Gentiles.

The Servant will not cry out.
He will not raise His voice.

Father prophesied this through Isaiah centuries before the Lord was born of flesh.

Know this.

The Lord is the source of true justice.

November 5, 2019

“Violent”

Blessings folk!

Remember
Remember
The 5th of November
The gunpowder treason and plot
I know no reason
Why the gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guy_Fawkes
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/V_for_Vendetta_(film)

“Religion” has been at war with itself since the beginning.

Such is not of the Lord.

Yes, there is a battle.
Two-fold.

Mat 11:12
From the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven has suffered violence,
and the violent take it by force.

Eph 6:12
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood,
but against the rulers,
against the powers,
against the world forces of this darkness,
against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.

The kingdom of heaven suffers violence.
The violent take the kingdom by force.
What does that mean?
Those that enter into the Kingdom deal “violently” with themselves…with their sins.
We do not take sin lightly.
We know that the flesh resists and puts up a struggle.

We also know that the struggle is not against flesh and blood.
It is against rulers, powers, world forces, spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.

Press on.
Violently deal with sin and the flesh.
Press in to the Kingdom

Romans Part 1 - Lesson 8

The Word: Episode 1097 Hebrews 11:30-31

“The Light of the World”

November 4, 2019

“The Light of the World”

Blessings folk!

Jesus is the Light!

Read what He said…

John 8:12-20

Again Jesus spoke to them, saying,
“I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness,
but will have the light of life.”

So the Pharisees said to him,
“You are bearing witness about yourself; your testimony is not true.”

Jesus answered,
“Even if I do bear witness about myself,
my testimony is true,
for I know where I came from and where I am going,
but you do not know where I come from or where I am going.

You judge according to the flesh; I judge no one.

Yet even if I do judge, my judgment is true, for it is not I alone who judge,
but I and the Father who sent me.

In your Law it is written that the testimony of two people is true.

I am the one who bears witness about myself,
and the Father who sent me bears witness about me.”

They said to him therefore,
“Where is your Father?”
Jesus answered, “You know neither me nor my Father.
If you knew me, you would know my Father also.”

These words he spoke in the treasury, as he taught in the temple;
but no one arrested him, because his hour had not yet come.

Jesus declared He is the Light of the world.

The religious rulers were apoplectic.
They focused on the minutiae of the law - “bearing witness about yourself” - rather than the truth the Lord was speaking.

The Lord’s testimony is true.
He is the Light.

He testifies of such.
Father testifies of this truth.

Jesus cuts to the point.
The religious rulers did not know Him or Father.

Nothing has changed.

“Fellowship In Light”

November 3, 2019

“Fellowship In Light”

Blessings folk!

God is Light.

We, as True Believers, are to walk in His Light.

1 Jo 1:7
But if we walk in the light,
as he is in the light,
we have fellowship with one another,
and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.

We have fellowship with one another in the Light!

Most “fellowship” in the soulish realm, not in the Light.

Most “churches” have little, if any, understanding of who they are in the Light.

Such would set us free.
Religious rulers suppress this freedom due to fear…they will be unable to “control”.

Now, read the balance of the chapter…

1 Jo 1:8-10

If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.

If we confess our sins,
he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

If we say we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.

Confess sins.

The Lord is faithful.
He will forgive.
He will cleanse.

Be not a liar.

Live in His Light!

“Walk in the Fellowship of Light”

November 2, 2019

“Walk in the Fellowship of Light”

Blessings folk!!

We saw earlier that we are to walk as children of Light.

Now…

1Jo 1:7
But if we walk in the light,
as he is in the light,
we have fellowship with one another,
and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.

If we walk in the Light.
If we manifest the Light.
If we live as He is in the Light…

Then…

We will have fellowship with one another.
The blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin.

Note that the verse starts with “but”…read the previous verse…

1Jo 1:6
If we say we have fellowship with him while we walk in darkness,
we lie and do not practice the truth.

Be not counted among those who lie…
Be not counted among those who say the believe, yet hate their brother…
Be not the deceived hypocrite…the “organizational church” is full of them.

Be a vessel of the True Light of the Lord.
