Psalms 13 How Long Lord…? How Long?

David laments about how long it’s taking to overcome their enemies. Enemies arise back-to-back. But the Children of Israel are only facing enemies’ generation after generation because they are not staying under the anointing of GOD. Acts of disobedience are opening the door to their enemies.

In verse 1 and 2, David ask, “How long…”, a total of 4 times. It’s interesting to note that Israel went into exile a total of 4 times; Babylon, Persia, Greece and with Rome.

Where else in the scriptures do we find similar language.... [Using one of the 7 Rules of Biblical Hermeneutics (Rule #6) known as ‘Ka-yoẓe bo mi-maḳom aḥer‘ (“Like that in another place”), i.e., the explanation of a Biblical passage according to another of similar content].

We see:

Exodus 16:28 “And the Lord said unto Moses, How long refuse ye to keep my commandments and my laws?”

Numbers 14:11 “And the Lord said unto Moses, How long will this people provoke me? and how long will it be ere they believe me, for all the signs which I have shewed among them?”

Numbers 14:27 How long shall I bear with this evil congregation, which murmur against me? I have heard the murmurings of the children of Israel, which they murmur against me.”

David recognizes and expresses two ways in which we can feel that GOD is not with us…

  1. Removal of His Presence; (1a) can cause us to feel forgotten.
  2. GOD Conceals His Face; (1b) can cause us to feel abandoned.

Yet, in the Book of Jeremiah we find GOD’s reply to apathy, idolatry, apostasy…

“Saying to a stock, Thou art my father; and to a stone, Thou hast brought me forth: for they have turned their back unto me, and not their face: but in the time of their trouble they will say, Arise, and save us.”

Sure, we can come up with our own strategies to save ourselves, and we have. But when will we trust GOD enough to abide with Him, without turning our backs, getting comfortable and complacent, without crossing over into apostasy, forgetfulness, apathy?

What causes us to drift back into the world and turn away, and get caught in the cycle of exile? Isn’t that one of the things that David wants us to figure out?

Lighten our eyes LORD, give us Your plan. We purpose to hear Your plan; we purpose in our hearts to listen and obey. We need Your counsel to keep us out of the snares of the enemy, we need to outwit them. It is imperative that we outwit them. If You do not give us the plan, or the instructions, to keep us from venturing into the traps, plots, plans or snares of our spiritual enemies, we will sleep the sleep of death (Jer. 51:9).

Enlighten us with torah… cause us to see beneath the verses… cause our eyes to open so that we understand the message… open our ears to hear… least our enemies prevail over us, over our children and over our futures…

This is why we can trust in Your Mercy…This is why we can rejoice in Your Salvation… This is why we can sing and find joy in the midst of pain and disappointment, or distress… because we don’t allow our feelings to rule over us… because our hearts are not seared, we can receive correction, we possess the humility to repent, because we know you are Faithful, More Faithful that we are… whether we can see Your Face, or feel Your Presence, we trust in You and on Your Name, and we already know that you will never leave us or forsake us…

Amen.

Praying the Psalms… OUTLOUD

Children’s names are dressed in Royal Apparel… The Purple Ink.

Come alongside us and pray for every name on this altar. Everything they need is just a prayer away! Ask The LORD to show you which people on this list you are assigned to pray for. I hope it’s every name, but if you are called to cover children…

My granddaughter asked about the people that you pass by, and you can look at them and see… knowing they need prayer, but you don’t know their names… how do we include them?

So, I made a reminder on the list for “The Unknown Name.” We are covering everybody, hidden in plain sight, everybody passing by anonymously, but we can see pain, hurt, devastation, secret pain… we’re binding every lying suicidal spirit, every spirit of sabotage, depression, we cast out vain imaginations… We are praying for you to have divine encounters, divine interventions, a Word from the LORD, that only you recognize must be coming from Him, because flesh and blood could not reveal it to you… Give your servants a Word for the lost, the broken, the lonely, the hurting… anoint my granddaughter to be one of your servants, to see behind the mask the people wear, to see the truth, to see beneath the surface, and be that servant, to give them a Word from the LORD, a Word that retrieves them from behind enemy lines.

Praying the Psalms…

With Just 7 Psalms a Day …. We heard the testimony and beheld with our own spirit, the blessing that came to others because many of us stood the watch, kept our consecration and we prayed in unity; one body, one heart, one mind, one spirit in January…

What Will February Bring in the Lives of Others When We All Stand The Watch This Month?

Let’s make it happen!

  • For those joining us from the many nations, you are welcome to send me an email with your top 3 names of those you are requesting prayer for. Send 1st Names Only (for their privacy).
  • No background history is needed. Just a 1st Name.
  • No need to tell us the situation or circumstance. Just a 1st Name.
  • Keep the rest of the names of those you are praying for in your personal prayer time with the Psalms. We are all agreeing with each other together and they will be covered by faith.
  • Assess the highest need for yourself and send those 1-3 names. Use the Comments button or RSVP.
  • We are speaking the Psalms OUTLOUDINTO THE ATMOSPHERE… We are taking them out of 1st person singular and speaking them in 3rd person plural – to cover others, to cover all those who are crying out to the LORD….
  • Together, with our voices in prayer, we are sending the Body of Christ help from the Sanctuary. Help is Coming! Amen. And All our prayers will be on time. Amen.
  • You don’t have to complete all 7 Psalms in the same sitting. You can split them up as you need to throughout the day. The only thing that matters is to get them done.
  • It does not matter what time. We are all in different places in different time zones. Speak the Psalms out loud in prayer as you are able.
  • Everyone is welcome to join us in the Fast if able. If you can’t that’s OK. It’s not time yet for you to fast. Many of us will be fasting, but if you are unable that is fine. Consider a fast that has nothing to do with food. If you haven’t done something healthy for yourself, like walking… take a 10-minute walk each day and speak the Psalms out loud… be creative. If you watch too much TV, fast the TV. If you are on Social Media too much and you know it.. fast Social Media…. sacrifice something that will cause you discomfort. It might just be a cup of coffee, but if it causes you to have to restrain yourself from doing it… I think it qualifies. Amen. Just keep your word to yourself and fast that particular thing. So in essence, this can also reveal to each of us, if we will even keep our word to ourselves. Amen.

Let your voice be heard at the Altar of Incense.

PRAY FROM A PLACE OF PASSION! PRAY FROM A PLACE OF LOVE!

Pray as if Your Life depended upon Your voice in Prayer!

Expect the phenomenal….

Amen.

Today, February 2nd we continue where we left off in January, with Psalm 132, The Psalm of Ascent. How perfect is that?

It’s time to ascend….

Amen.

Went back and placed children’s names in the Royal Apparel of Purple ink, Speak a special emphasis on their covering of protection, prophecy breakthrough, destiny, they shall be an answer in the earth, they shall bring forth solutions, the world is in need of your solutions, ideas, witty inventions, you are here to build and not tear down, to resolve a matter, you are negotiators, solution oriented, problem solvers, readers, investigators, seers, hearers, visionaries, creating new colors, lifting burdens, removing limitations, in Sync with the Spirit of God in the Earth. Amen.

My granddaughter asked about the people that you pass by, and you can look at them and see… knowing they need prayer, but you don’t know their names… how do we include them?

So, I made a reminder on the list for “The Unknown Name.” We are covering everybody, hidden in plain sight, everybody passing by anonymously, but we can see pain, hurt, devastation, secret pain… we’re binding every lying suicidal spirit, every spirit of sabotage, depression, we cast out vain imaginations… We are praying for you to have divine encounters, divine interventions, a Word from the LORD, that only you recognize must be coming from Him, because flesh and blood could not reveal it to you… Give your servants a Word for the lost, the broken, the lonely, the hurting… anoint my granddaughter to be one of your servants, to see behind the mask the people wear, to see the truth, to see beneath the surface, and be that servant, to give them a Word from the LORD, a Word that retrieves them from behind enemy lines. (Feb 5, 2023)

Pray for those who you do know, even those who never ask for prayer. Pray for those that support you and the things that give you purpose, and over the things that give them purpose. Surround them with prayer… before they even need it, Amen? (Feb 6, 2023)

Who Can Thank GOD For The Darkest Days Of Their Lives? Part 1

After pleading for GOD to move speedily on his behalf, Psalm 39 laments the brevity of life. In this season of praying the psalms, Psalm 39 stands out as an imperative to heed our ways and hold our tongues. We begin with part 1 of this message; Psalms 39, verses 1-4.

The Tehillim, David’s Book of Praises, is a collection of David’s passionate prayers for deliverance and salvation, his urgent plea for help from the sanctuary; from those that sought to provoke, taunt, mock, and haunt his day, his ministry, and his life.

One of the most powerful things David left in his legacy for us, is teaching us how to praise GOD in spite of the pain, disappointment, rejection, etc., especially during the times that appear to be some of the darkest days of your life.

Who among us is able to thank GOD, for even the darkest days of their life… and still praise like a King, like a David?

PSALM 27: for September 27th, YOM KIPPUR

SUNDAY, September 27th, 2020 (5781) is Holy Ground! Yom Kippur has been separated and consecrated just for you.

What if there were just one day a year that the LORD wanted to rehearse your deliverance in the ears of and in the sight of the enemy! A day GOD wanted to remind the enemy of who you are to HIM? A day that would set the tone for your whole entire new year?

Would GOD Set Aside One Day Each Year to Remind You, the entire Spirit Realm and The World at Large, that You Are Holy Unto Him?

What if there was one day in the entire year, one day in 365 days, where Your Heavenly Father set an appointment with you for deliverance?

Not a day to debate whether or not you are already saved, sanctified and delivered, but something more…

If there was one day a year, that GOD would absolutely forbid any accusations whatsoever to be leveled against you?

One day each year that GOD accepts your heart felt repentance. A day above and beyond all the legalities of our faith and all the justified claims against us?

What if there was one day in the entire year that the accuser of the brethren had no right to speak up at all, and he knew it. One day so holy, that the LORD refuses to hear any accusations, charges, judgements whatsoever, no criticisms of you of any kind…. Would you step into that day?

Yom Kippur is that day. That set apart day… above all other days of the year… a divine appointment, in which GOD would wake you up and greet you with words, so sweet as to say…

“I know the thoughts that I think toward you, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.”

God only requires that we proclaim His Holy Seasons.

Many, O LORD my God, are the wonders You have done, and the plans You have for us–none can compare to You– if I would proclaim and declare of them, they are more than could be numbered.

Every day of the year, but one… ha’satan seeks to cast accusations against you, to find fault, to kill, steal and destroy, even your very name and reputation before GOD.

On Yom Kippur, One day per year, that is so Holy before GOD, the enemy has no voice, no right, no standing to accuse, ridicule, or cast judgements.

On Yom Kippur, all charges are dropped in the Heavenly Court, all evil decrees are annulled.

Psalm 27 for Sunday, September 27th — the Day of Atonement

Proclaim this Day as Your Divine Appointment… Holy Unto the LORD

The Lord is my light (Rosh Hashana) and my salvation (Yom Kippur); whom shall I fear? the Lord is the strength of ; of whom shall I be afraid

When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell.

Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this (ha’zote) will I be confident.

One thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to enquire in his temple.

For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock.

And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me: therefore will I offer in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the Lord.

Hear, O Lord, when I cry with my voice: have mercy also upon me, and answer me.

When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, Thy face, Lord, will I seek.

Hide not thy face far from me; put not thy servant away in anger: thou hast been my help; leave me not, neither forsake me, O God of my salvation.

10 When my father and my mother forsake me, then the Lord will take me up.

11 Teach me thy way, O Lord, and lead me in a plain path, because of mine enemies.

12 Deliver me not over unto the will of mine enemies: for false witnesses are risen up against me, and such as breathe out cruelty.

13 I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.

14 Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord.

This third I will bring through the fire; I will refine them like silver and test them like gold. They will call on My name, and I will answer them. I will say, ‘They are My people,’ and they will say, ‘The LORD is our God.'” Zechariah 13:9

AMEN & Amen
