What is the Word of God?

Psalm 138:2   

I will bow down toward Your holy temple and give thanks to Your name for Your lovingkindness and Your truth for You have magnified Your Word above all Your Name.

The Word of God is the expression of His heart that reflects His character.

10 Key Principles of Responsible Scripture Interpretation

Dear friends,

If I were to choose my greatest passion, I think it would be purity – purity in the food I eat, purity in the soil that grows the herbs in my backyard, purity in my morning coffee, the pure smell of sheets on the laundry line, the purity of simple times with friends, and the purity of God and His Word.

The Tabernacle Hesed Moon

The Tabernacle Hesed Moon
Living in His Undeserved Love
October 15, 2019
Free PDF Download

Note:  On October 16, 2019 at 10:30 p.m., we received a phone call from my sister that my brother had passed away unexpectedly. We arrived at my mother’s home about midnight. This blog was posted the day before on October 15. We were told the following Saturday that the “presumed date” of his death was October 15. So, this blog was written in the early morning of the day my brother died.

Dear friends,

The week-long Feast of Tabernacles began this year [2019] at sunset on Sunday, October 13th and will culminate on Sunday, October 20th – “the last day of the great feast” (John 7:37-38). 

My heart has been filled with a warm longing for more of Yeshua as I look at the Tabernacle full moon outside our east window at night and outside our west window in the early morning. Both sights are gentle reminders that Father has enclosed me behind and before and laid His hand of love upon me. (Psalm 139:5)

Praying Isaiah's Hope
A Request for Healing
September 11, 2019
Free PDF Download

Do you need to be healed in any aspect of your life today? I do. Let’s come into His presence with prayers for healing, praying from Isaiah 52 through 58.

I wrote this prayer in the first person, but you can fill in your name and the names of all those who God is placing on your heart. I encourage you to read it along with your Bible, since these are my own prayers taken from the passages. I’ve noted the Chapter and Verse where applicable.

Basking in Matthew
A walk through Chapter 13

Dear friends,

I’ve been basking in the book of Matthew since this past April. Every sentence is exploding with meaning! I have just waded through Yeshua’s parables in Matthew 13. He had been teaching by the Galilean Sea where He had established a temporary home (Matthew 4:13). I always picture the profile of Him sitting on a hill overlooking the Sea.

Choice Children, Part 2
Choice or Chaff—The Daniel 12/Matthew 3/Isaiah 40 Connection
August 2019
Free PDF Download

From the Hebrew word study of Daniel 12:3  from Choice Children, Part 1:  
“Those who abide in God consider their steps deeply. They receive discernment, direction and wisdom that causes them to shine so brightly that their lives enlighten, warn, admonish, and teach those around them without speaking a word. Their lives gleam with God’s purifying message, and many are drawn to Him through their brightness.”

In about AD 26-30, John, son of Zacharias and Elizabeth, emerged in the wilderness of Judea immersing Jewish people in the Jordan River. They would have seen this act as bathing for cleansing. John said he came to immerse for repentance. Repentance means to turn. John cried out in the wilderness for the people to turn from sin to God – to be cleansed from their own ways to walk in God’s ways.

Dear friends,

Daniel 12:10 says “Many will be purged, purified and refined” referring to the Lord’s people in the end times.

When I think of the word purge, I think of getting rid of things I don’t need. However, when I looked at the meaning of the Hebrew word in this passage for purge (bârar), it means to clarify, brighten, examine, polish, prove, and to make choice. The word bârar suggests the attention given to a favorite.

Beautiful Progressions of Repentance, 3 of 3

Beautiful Progressions of Repentance, 3 of 3 
Matthew 5
Free PDF Download

Introduction
Repentance is beautiful. Understanding it is the key to a life of increase and joy in the Holy Spirit. In the first paper called The Progression from Brokenness to Wholeness, 1 of 3, I shared insights into Psalm 51 and David’s prayer of repentance. In the second paper, I shared the way to stay in humility by abiding. I was amazed then to find a third progression of repentance as I read Jesus’ message on the mountain in Matthew 5.

Repentance is beautiful. Understanding it is the key to a life of increase and joy in the Holy Spirit. In the first paper called The Progression from Brokenness to Wholeness, 1 of 3, I shared insights into Psalm 51 and David’s prayer of repentance after his gross sins of adultery, lying and murder. The Lord restored him fully. This second progression contains the way to stay in humility by abiding daily in His presence.

Psalm 51

Introduction
Repentance is beautiful. Understanding it is the key to a life of increase and joy in the Holy Spirit. That is what I found in the early months of 2019 as Father unfolded these three progressions in Scripture. They are detailed but simple when read step by step. Toward the end of 2019, on 8/8 and 12/12, I experienced the beauty of repentance tangibly. I’m still trying to write about these revelations, but they were so personal that words currently escape me. My Scripture Study called The Tabernacle Hesed Moon – Living in His Undeserved Love was a start. This paper begins with the first of three progressions.

My document entitled The Work of Rest is a printed learning tool and may be viewed or purchased here. This 6-page study tool summarizes the book of Hebrews. It measures 8.5 x 11 inches when closed. It can be used for personal and weekly group study.

The book of Hebrews was written to wean Jewish believers from dependence on the law of Moses and to teach them (and us) to live in the New Covenant in Jesus their Messiah by RESTING, not in their own works for salvation, but in His power to do His work in and through them. (Hebrews 4:9-11)
