“The righteous cry and the Lord heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles.” Psalms 34:17 “Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivereth him out of them all. He keepeth all his bones, not one of them is broken Psalm 34:19 -20 Evil shall slay the wicked: and they that hate the righteous shall be desolate. Psalms 34:21 The Lord redeemeth the soul of his servants: and none of them that trust in him shall be desolate.
OPENING STATEMENT by Robert
The following excerpt from the linked article gives us a glimpse, as prayer warriors, where spiritually we currently need to be in our personal relationship with Yeshua. “As “Modern Day Disciples,” our walk, faith, and discernment like the early “Apostles” have been deepened and drawn into a very deep personal relationship with Yeshua. The depth of our faith and how to prepare ourselves to be at that depth…
And being shown there will be moments of turmoil (Covid-19 virus) which like Peter will frighten us, as we may not entirely understand and because of our relationship with the Lord will call out for his assistance when we believe we are failing not realizing we have in our spirit doubted what we have received as truth.“
CLOSING STATEMENT by Robert
Yeshua through the Holy Spirit’s teachings has placed before us the information needed to bring spiritual compliance. David prescribes the true and only way to happiness both in this world and that to come, Psalms 34:13,14. Would we pass comfortably through this world, and out of the world, our constant care must be to keep a good conscience and, in order to do that…
1. We must learn to bridle our tongues, and be careful what we say, that we never speak amiss, to God’s dishonour or our neighbour’s prejudice: Keep thy tongue from evil speaking, lying, and slandering. So great does this go in religion that, if any offend not in word, the same is a perfect man and so little does religion go without this that of him who bridles not his tongue it is declared, His religion is vain
2. We must be upright and sincere in everything we say, and not double-tongued. Our words must be the indications of our minds our lips must be kept from speaking guild either to God or man
3. We must leave all our sins, and resolve we will have no more to do with them. We must depart from evil, from evil works and evil workers from the sins others commit and which we have formerly allowed ourselves in
4. It is not enough not to do hurt in the world, but we must study to be useful, and live to some purpose. We must not only depart from evil, but we must do good, good for ourselves, especially for our own souls, employing them well, furnishing them with a good treasure, and fitting them for another world and, as we have ability and opportunity, we must do good to others also
5. Since nothing is more contrary to that love which never fails (which is the summary both of law and gospel, both of grace and glory) than strife and contention, which bring confusion and every evil work, we must seek peace and pursue it we must show a peaceable disposition, study the things that make for peace, do nothing to break the peace and to make mischief.
If peace seems to flee from us, we must pursue it to follow peace with all men, spare no pains, no expense, to preserve and recover peace, be willing to deny ourselves a great deal, both in honour and interest, for peace’s sake.
These excellent directions as a way to life and good are transcribed into the New Testament and made part of our gospel duty, 1 Peter 3:10. And, perhaps David, in warning us that we speak no guile, reflects upon his own sin in changing his behaviour.
Those that truly repent of what they have done amiss will warn others to take heed of doing likewise. He enforces these directions by setting before us the happiness of the godly in the love and favour of God and the miserable state of the wicked under his displeasure. Here are life and death, good and evil, the blessing and the curse, plainly stated before us, that we may choose life and live. See Isaiah 3:10,11.
It’s time to know your position your absolute knowledge of your walk and commitment, your position within your faith. David earlier described: We must be upright and sincere in everything we say, and not double-tongued. Our words must be the indications of our minds our lips must be kept from speaking guild either to God or man
Please remember these articles are the work of a humble servant of Yeshua doing His, bidding as a Watchmen sounding the Trumpet to warn of impending danger within the Assembly. May our Father abundantly bless each one of you with wisdom and discernment to go forward as His “Modern Day Disciples.”
Thou will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee, Trust ye in the Lord forever: for in the Lord Yeshua is everlasting strength. (Isaiah 26:3-4)
