  1. @JTC ( ?) My son, do not forget my teaching, But let your mind retain my commandments; For they will bestow on you length of days, Years of life and well-being. Let fidelity and steadfastness not leave you; Bind them about your throat, Write them on the tablet of your mind, And you will find favor and approbation In the eyes of God and man. Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And do not rely on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He will make your paths smooth. Do not be wise in your own eyes; Fear the LORD and shun evil. It will be a cure for your body, A tonic for your bones. Prov 3:1-8 ~~~ The LORD will guide you always; He will slake your thirst in parched places And give strength to your bones. You shall be like a watered garden, Like a spring whose waters do not fail. Isaiah 58:11
  2. Amen. Thus said the Lord: Cursed is he that trusts in man, who makes mere flesh his strength, and turns his thoughts from the LORD. Blessed is he who trusts in the LORD, whose trust is the LORD alone. Jere 17:5,7
  3. No one has called you names or judged you. If someone knew the fear of the Lord, and tried to persuade men, and had experiential knowledge of and revelation from God, I would hope we would be persuaded. Or at least consider the scriptures presented. I have prayed that both of our eyes would be open to see what God has said concerning the fear of the Lord. I didn't say 'vainly believing the truth of scriptures'...you left out 'automatically applied'. And I didn't say that my heart feared greatly because I feared that all things in scripture weren't for me. When I read the meat of the Word in this brother's post, God in His mercy showed me where I really was, and it wasn't where I thought I was, and I shook; the delusions, hypocrisy and religious scaffolding came down. To the glory of God. Heaven is my throne says Adonai, and the earth is my footstool. What kind of house could you build for me? What sort of place could you devise for my rest? Didn't I myself make all these things? This is how they all came to be. says Adonai, The kind of person on whom I look with favor, is one with a poor and humble spirit, who trembles at my word. Isa 66:1-2
  4. You reckon? I don't know. But this I know...that you fear and dread all that might displease Him. Might this be the root of your joy? Blessed is the man who fears the Lord. His heart is established. He shall not be afraid. (The fear of the Lord takes all other fear away). And unto man he said, Behold the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom... Edit: Then those who feared the LORD spoke to one another, and the LORD gave attention and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before Him for those who fear the LORD and who esteem His name.
  5. Yes, such a blessing to taste and see... I’m not a teacher, nor have I the revelation of a couple men of God that I am fortunate to be associated. So, I will sit down after I try to answer your edit/addition of ‘perfect love casts out all fear’ as honestly as I can. Has God ever put someone in your path that shook you to the core of your being just through one of his posts? I mean did God show you and judge the make-believe life that you were ‘living’ and all the scaffolding that you had built around you came crumbling down because you vainly imagined(believed certain truths in the Bible automatically applied to you and you ‘claimed’ them just because ‘it was written’ and you fiercely desired them? Enter my first experience of the fear of God. I could pull up the ‘fear’ scripts that are written, but suffice it to say that God has put in my heart to love(trust Him with ALL, but it is NOT without the fear of Him—Who IS love. Who IS Perfect. Who has shown us the narrow path (that no fowl knoweth) to enter INTO Perfect Love. INTO CHRIST. According to the gift of the Spirit of Holiness. Not because of my self-righteousness or ‘it is written’ and I believe it. THIS is the work of God—that I believe that THIS is the work of God. Not me. My favorite story is the preparation of Esther by Hegai before she appeared before the King, and the scepter of Righteousness was lowered in her favor...she both loved and feared The King. Grace is deceitful and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord shall be praised.
  6. Thank you for your posts. The word EXCEEDINGLY great and precious always stands out to me. I love it because it describes and gives glory/attention to Him in one way or another in many verses. From the love of God to the fear of God. Everything about Him is not only great, but exceedingly great! And humble. As Not me says...'something to chew on'...or something like that
  7. Because you favor Zion, do what is good for her! Fortify the walls of Jerusalem! Ps 51:18 NET He that dasheth in pieces is come up before thy face: keep the munition, watch the way, make thy loins strong, fortify thy power mightily. Nahum 2:1 KJV אמץ 'amats strengthen , courage , strong , courageous , harden , speed , stronger , confirm , established , fortify , increaseth , steadfastly minded , obstinate , prevailed
  8. You have visited me at night, probed my mind. You have tested me and found nothing amiss; I have determined that my mouth shall not transgress. Psalm 17:3 ~~~~ I the Lord probe the heart, Search the mind-- To repay every man according to his ways, With the proper fruit of his deeds. Jeremiah 17:10
  9. Would you explain the underlined? Specifically 'YOU'? Thanks.
  10. And to come to the place where God and God alone is all we long for...We are His...not ours. [We are not our own]. Amen?
  11. Hi. On Saturday morning I attended my first Sabboth Torah Study in my vicinity in lieu of reading various online groups. Experiencing it in person was a blessing! Especially the shema/amidah prayers read in Hebrew and English. We read Korach (3 Tammuz 5779) or 6 Jul.2019 ~ a little bit from Num. 15 & Num. 16:1-18:32 & 1 Sam. 11:14-12:22 Have a lot to learn, but sensed in a very real way that He gave me the desire to be there. And to continue as He leads.
  12. And this is the condemnation that the light has come into the world and men loved darkness rather than light... https://youtu.be/dk_X6Y9Zodg
