The GLORY of God! In temptation, “flee” pronouncing The Word. Know it, so it does not get ‘twisted.’

Quite a few times we have ‘recited’ and learned this verse.  Let’s head down memory lane and be blessed yet again! We live in blessing! Bathe in it, plunge in deep, swim in it, float in it.  Blessing is our support, faith, our access point. The doors of ‘Faithing’ are thrown wide open when we let go!

Jumping out of a plane and parachuting can be an experience. From exiting the plane, dropping, twirling and aligning yourself “spread eagle” and soaring (Oops! Did I say soaring?) Dropping ever so quickly… but it is a rush! Time stands still. IF there is a photographer, you are smiling and thumbs-upping it, all while falling.  To? Yes it is frighteningly exhilarating. Has anyone done this and gotten hurt? Undoubtedly.  But on that free fall you let all go, and just drop with exhilaration.

I wondered why I did this, and it is explicable — for the rush. The experience allows one to “leave it all behind,”— the worries, fears, bonds of mistrust, lasso failure and just-hope… Yes, hope is a big thing. Hope is so many things; a knowledge of the gratitude to stand when it is over.  To live, to have your parachute open… Yes! There is a back-up parachute or even another jumper who can guide you down in most cases, but neither diminish the thrill. But let us Look at this in another context!  Let’s take it to the Spiritual realm!

At times we feel ourselves falling, out of control, lost, bewildered…

“A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but the worry, shame, depression, lack shall not come nigh thee.” Psalm 91:7 and, “Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.” Amen.

“Because you hast made the LORD, which is The source of all thy refuge, even the most High, thy dwelling place,” Amen.

“For in so believing, faithing and being blessed, there shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.”

Check this out:  “For He shall give his Angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.”

Read this again! We are aware that we are on and in a “stage” (of life).  There are roundabout witnesses we most times do not see.

Check this out:  “And Elisha prayed, and said, Jehovah, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And Jehovah opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha.” 2 Kings 6:17

“And what will the host that have been assigned to us on the stage of life do? They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.” Psalm 91:7-12

We discussed this in terms of the temptations of Christ. The second temptation was when He was taken to the pinnacle of the temple. This gives us a glimpse at the power and authority given Satan. When God gives, He gives. The same Jesus who was tempted to turn stones to bread for the ravenous hunger that befell Him, could not have walked up the temple parapet, but The Word says “He was led.”

“The devil led him to Jerusalem and had him stand on the highest point of the temple. ‘If you are the Son of God,’ he said, ‘throw yourself down from here. For it is written:

He will command his angels concerning you to guard you carefully; they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.’

“Jesus answered, ‘It is said: Do not put the Lord your God to the test.’ ”

Luke 4:9-12

Physically, or in The Spirit, it is not important at this point BUT Satan asked Him to jump, and as The Word says, the Angels Of The LORD will bear Thee up.  A definite misquotation of The Word.  The Word doesn’t say, “Test God!” But, rather “Let God be God!” Amen
