Light in the Midst of Darkness

Source & Absorption

While reading Ps 21 today, I came to two verses that stood out the most. While the overall chapter is about the favor of the Lord upon His king, these verses are entirely descriptive of the relationship between the two. Especially when the Lord is most glorified in the Psalm of David. Among His people […]

“And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.  So God created man in […]

Spirit of War

Lion of Judah

It is said, “If He be for us, who can be against us?” How we fight is not by means of familiar physical, mental or emotional harm done to others. It is by enduring the faith and fighting that which would come against us spiritually. It is fighting against temptation and relying upon God for […]

Pangs of Sorrow

Wind Swept

“He is jealous for me. Loves like a hurricane. I am a tree. Bending beneath the weight of His wind and mercy.” -Crowder While reading through Psalms, chapters 1 through 18, I have gone ever so slow. Start, stop, go back, rewind, check that word, cross-reference this phrase or that, re-read and repeat a series […]

Message of Love

Overflowing Presence

Because of Bema. Because of time as short as it is. Because it’s new and interesting. Because it is straight to the point. I’ve ordered hundreds of small printed notes. A couple of packs to give out and place here and there. At the idea of someone somewhere taking the seed within for it to […]

Buried in Thought

Buried in Thought

Side by side, I have been looking back and forth between a segment of Psalms 10. Largely because I am interested in the overall accuracy of written words and meaning among scripture translations. Both as either word for word, or thought for thought. So here is an example. For the wicked boasts of his heart’s […]

Throughout Mesopotamia and adjacent ancient empires, there were multitudes of people along the Fertile Crescent who have come against God’s covenant people Israel. In recent years as an effort to erase the borders of Sykes Picot and […]

The Late Repentants - Divine Comedy Purg IV 103-105

Ita Quod Per Ignem

The late repentants who narrowly escaped the torment of hell. While not at all biblical, the poem reads as a vivid contrast between different levels of providence through saving faith and life lived out by grace. This through Dante’s fictitious purgatory. Yet as a comparison, it is written, escaped so as by fire (Ita Quod […]

Valley of Dry Bones

Valley of Dry Bones

After a long while, I have come to the end of Ezekiel. A word-for-word slow and careful look at what the words and Spirit within me would say. Here is an outline of notes below of what really stood out. Because of what the Lord’s people did to betray Him as their everlasting and loving […]
