My earthly life clings to the dust;
Revive and refresh me according to Your word.
Remember [always] The Word and Thy promise to Your servant,
In which You have made me hope.
This is my comfort in my affliction,
That Your Word has revived me and gives me life, Amen
Then the LORD said to me, “you have seen well, for I am [actively] watching over My Word to fulfill it.”
Faith on people, faith on, Amen
“The light of the righteous [within him—grows brighter and] rejoices,
But the lamp of the wicked [is a temporary light and] goes out.”
What do we have?
The Lord is my Rock, my Fortress, and The One who rescues me;
My God, my Rock and my strength in whom I trust and take refuge;
My shield, and The horn of my salvation, my high tower—my Stronghold, Amen.
We give God ALL The honor and praise for His Word. Heavy with blessings, soaked with promises. As we seek Him today (in this Period) glory shall we give into Him. For He has done it ALL! Our needs and wants are met. Not just met, but done so according to God’s endless riches in Glory! Amen.
One who was considered a friend of God (Moses) could not behold God in all His glory.
“Then Moses said, “Now show me Your glory.”
And The Lord said, “I will cause all My goodness to pass in front of you, and I will proclaim my name, the Lord, in your presence. I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion. But,” He said, “you cannot see My face, for no one may see Me and live.”
Then The Lord said, “There is a place near My essence where you may stand on a rock. When My glory passes by, I will put you in a cleft in the rock and cover you with My hand until I have passed by. Then I will remove My hand and you will see My back; but My face must not be seen.”
“The LORD would speak to Moses ‘face to face,’ as one speaks to a friend. Then Moses would return to the camp, but his young aide Joshua son of Nun did not leave the tent.”
“By day the LORD went ahead of them in a pillar of cloud to guide them on their way and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light, so that they could travel by day or night.
Neither the pillar of cloud by day nor the pillar of fire by night left its place in front of the people.”
We read of The forms of God:
“So Jacob was left alone, and a man wrestled with him till daybreak. When the man saw that he could not overpower him, he touched the socket of Jacob’s hip so that his hip was wrenched as he wrestled with the man. Then the man said, “Let me go, for it is daybreak.”
But Jacob replied, “I will not let you go unless you bless me.”
The Man asked him, “What is your name?”
“Jacob,” he answered.
Then The Man said, “Your name will no longer be Jacob, but Israel, because you have struggled with God and with humans and have overcome.”
Jacob said, “Please tell me Your name.”
But He replied, “Why do you ask My name?” Then He blessed him there.”
Why is this key? For so many reasons: When Moses was sent to Egypt, he asked “Who should I say sent me?”
“God said to Moses, “I am who I am.
This is what you are to say to the Israelites: ‘I am has sent me to you.’ ”
We can read more here:
We describe God by his Character. God is Love. It is awesome that people do not say “Love” sent me. Rather, we describe God by His all.
The Hebrew theonyms Elohim and YHWH are mostly rendered as “God” and “the LORD” respectively, although in the Protestanttradition the personal names Yahweh andJehovah are also used. “Jehovah” appears in the Tyndale Bible, the King James Version, and other translations from that time period and later.
“Who do you worship?” “What leads you. Guides you?” “What is at your center?”
These are the questions that we ask of ourselves and others. Religion aside, we all have a center.
I go along this route because there are different belief systems with one key unique identifier. The belief/knowledge that we focus on a central force. Yes, this I am aware has led us off our base, but has it? We are all “Human” the fact that is irrefutable. What makes us unique? A few shadings ago, I pointed out that in transplantation an Asian person can give donated organs to a Caucasian, Spaiard, Black, Middle Eastern… There is a similarity in ALL. Yes, there are changes that evolution brings about.
If we look briefly and superficially at the Olympics, Marathons etc The Kenyans have dominance in this field. People go over to Kenya to train. Is it air quality, passion…what? Yes, to briefly go on – Martial arts, developed by our Asian kin. We can go on, but I just wanted to point out known fact.
We can see from above that acts define an essence. Kind, thoughtful, selfish (thinking only of self), giving, consistent…The list is non ending. What describes you as you? Who are you? What are you?
We see above that The names of God are Who and What He is! Who He is, is what He does. A very clear circle. So, one more time for now, I will ask who you are.
