Posture

Rev.4:10-11 “the twenty-four elders fall down before Him who sits on the throne and worship Him who lives forever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying: “You are worthy, O Lord, To receive glory and honour and power…” (NKJV]

Twice in our study of John 8, we see crowds attempt to stone Jesus. In the first instance, the wisdom that Jesus spoke confounded them and they dropped the stones and left. This same Jesus says to us in Luke 21:14-15So don’t worry in advance about how to answer the charges against you, for I will give you the right words and such wisdom that none of your opponents will be able to reply or refute you!Read the rest of this entry

Under Cover

John 8:59 At that point they picked up stones to throw at him. But Jesus was hidden from them and left the Temple.” (emphasis added).

Citadel

Ps.91:1–2 “He who takes refuge in the shelter of the Most High will be safe in the shadow of the Almighty. He will say to the Eternal, “My shelter, my mighty fortress, my God, I place all my trust in You.” (Voice].

John 7:30 “Then the leaders tried to arrest him; but no one laid a hand on him, because his time had not yet come.”

Stretched?

Matt.11:28 (AMPC) “Come to Me, all you who labour and are heavy-laden and overburdened, and I will cause you to rest. (I will ease and relieve and refresh your souls.)”

Every believer needs a place where they can openly express their worship to God. And every believer needs a small group where they can freely share their struggles with others. Read the rest of this entry

The Testament

Rev.19:10 (NKJV) “And I fell at his feet to worship him. But he said to me, “See that you do not do that! I am your fellow servant, and of your brethren who have the testimony of Jesus. Worship God! For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.”

It is wise to hide until it is time to shine! Matt.2:14That night Joseph left for Egypt with the child and Mary, his mother, 15 …This fulfilled what the Lord had spoken through the prophet: “I called my Son out of Egypt.” Read the rest of this entry

Rock vs. Sand

Luke 6:48 [NKJV] “He is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid the foundation on the rock. And when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently against that house, and could not shake it, for it was founded on the rock.”
