If you are a child of many things, children are ignorant to the understanding of how a thing work —the mechanism and the functionality of it. Basically, if you play with fire, children, there is a possibility you will be burned.

Paying attention to the instructions of a parent warnings will benefit you even if the parent doesn’t take the time, at that moment of instruction, give detail explanation as to why you should reframe from doing or participating in an action.

I myself have stumbled many times from an inward knowing to halt the participation in a place or even reframe from dialogue in a conversation.  I have learned by many failed attempts of not listening to an inward individual but have a gained understanding and now, my will is no longer in this area but His will is right, every time. The Father knows best.

Let me take it to the word of God to give an example of participating in error.

Let’s take a read in 1Kings 22:2—

1 Kings 21:2 says, So Ahab spoke to Naboth, saying, “Give me your vineyard, that I may have it for a vegetable garden, because it is near, next to my house; and for it I will give you a vineyard better than it. Or, if it seem good to you, I will give you its worth in money.”—

Here we see that the vineyard in 1st Kings 21 is talking about Naboth being the owner of the vineyard positioned next to the palace.

In 1 Kings 21, Ahab approached Naboth asking him for his vineyard by saying, “give me”,  that vineyard that is part of his lineage blessings. Naboth replied to Ahab by saying “I will not give you my vineyard”.

Ahab even suggested to buy, but Naboth canceled the purchase and said no in given him his Vineyard for another type of vineyard.  In this story, Naboth was later setup by Ahab wife  Jezebel which Ahab gave Jezebel authority over his being leadership and king and had Naboth killed for the vineyard anyway by setting Naboth up with actions to make Naboth feel important sitting with high esteem official between two officials falsely accused Naboth.

And she wrote letters in Ahab’s name, sealed them with his seal, and sent the letters to the elders and the nobles who were dwelling in the city with Naboth. She wrote in the letters, saying, Proclaim a fast, and seat Naboth with high honor among the people; and seat two men, scoundrels, before him to bear witness against him, saying, “You have blasphemed God and the king.” Then take him out, and stone him, that he may die.
1 Kings 21:8-10

Another biblical character where we see another purchase for the vineyard was the transaction between Judas and Priests leaders offering Judas 30 shackles of silver which Judas received and he gave Christ over to the Priest leaders. Afterward Judas hung himself for his treacherous actions.

In both cases, the Prophet Jehue shows to address Jezebel and the Prophet Jesus very presence judge righteously all things by the word of God.

Be content with knowing that you, the redemption with you and in all thing is alive and well.  Amen Amen and Amen

7 Ways to Express Worship

For some, expressing themselves in worship can be uncomfortable, especially if they are new Christians. You go to some churches, and the congregation never stands up. They don’t sing, but they just sit and listen to the worship music. Others may sing but they don’t play instruments. Still others will be waving their hands, shouting and running around as the band plays every kind of instrument. Which way to worship is correct?

Well, the Bible outlines seven different types of worship, and they are all appropriate, with each having its place. Let’s examine them:

 

Barak–To kneel, to bless God, to bow down

“He will rescue the poor when they cry to him; he will help the oppressed, who have no one to defend them…. Long live the king! May the gold of Sheba be given to him, may the people always pray for him and bless him all day long.” –Psalm 72:12-15

Barak means to bow down to, or kneel before, the Lord. It communicates that the Lord holds a place of importance and helps us remember just how great He is. Barak is not done out of a begging attitude but rather an expectant attitude, because the Lord is more than willing and able to move on our behalf.

Halal–To be clear, to shine, to boast, to show, to rave, to celebrate, to be clamorously foolish

“David appointed the following Levites to lead the people in worship before the Ark of the Lord—to invoke his blessings, to give thanks, and to praise the Lord, the God of Israel.” –1 Chronicles 16:4

Halal appears more than 110 times in the Old Testament. It translates as to shine, boast, rave about, celebrate or even to be clamorously foolish. Can you imagine a more wondrous noise raving about about all the Lord is and all He has done?

 

Shabach–To shout loudly, to command

“Come, everyone! Clap your hands! Shout to God with joyful praise!” –Psalm 47:1

Shabach means to shout loudly or command. Of course, it isn’t simply about being loud. Its focus is to worship the Lord with one’s whole being.

Tehillah–To sing praises, singing out of the spirit spontaneously

“But you are holy, O You Who dwell in [the holy place where] the praises of Israel [are offered].” –Psalm 22:3, AMPC

Tehillah means to sing unrehearsed, unplanned praises to the Lord. It can include adding words to an existing song or even singing in the spirit to the Lord.

Towdah–Extending hands, acting out of thanksgiving for what has or will be done

“But giving thanks is a sacrifice that truly honors me. If you keep to my path, I will reveal to you the salvation of God.” –Psalm 50:23

Towdah is a type of worship that includes extending your hands or raising them in thanksgiving for something that has been done or will be done.

Yadah– Extending the hands vigourously

“After consulting the people, the king appointed singers to walk ahead of the army, singing to the Lord and praising him for his holy splendor. This is what they sang: ‘Give thanks to the Lord; his faithful love endures forever!’”
–2 Chronicles 20:21

Yadah means to extend your hands vigorously as in complete surrender.

Zamar – To touch the strings, to make music with instruments, mostly rejoicing

“Praise him with a blast of the ram’s horn; praise him with the lyre and harp! Praise him with the tambourine and dancing; praise him with strings and flutes! Praise him with a clash of cymbals; praise him with loud clanging cymbals. Let everything that breathes sing praises to the Lord! Praise the Lord!” –Psalm 150:3-6

I have this mini Ark of the Covenant on my mantel, as I am listening to worship music. The story Uzzah came to memory.

Answer: The story of Uzzah and the Ark of the Covenant is found in 2 Samuel 6:1-7 and 1 Chronicles 13:9-12. As the ark was being transported, the oxen pulling the cart stumbled, and a Levite named Uzzah took hold of the ark. God’s anger burned against Uzzah and He struck him down and he died. Uzzah’s punishment does appear to be extreme for what we might consider to be a good deed. However, there are the reasons why God took such severe action.

This is a complicated answer. I am not a psychologist, but from what I understand as a former supply for a narcissist, even if you are no contact, if you have any exposure to their lives, especially in social media, or mutual friends who might try to pass information along to you about the narcissist, as far as the narcissist is concerned, you are still giving them emotional supply. They are still feeding off the thoughts that you might be suffering because of what’s happening in their life. For this reason they will often go to extremes to post things on social media or sneakily pass messages along to you through others in hopes that you will be affected by them. They really believe that you will be hurting and they get off just on that negative thought fuel alone. Therefore, you should really cut off all means of seeing anything about them at all. Once they realize you have done that, and that you are serious about it, that will stop them from getting fuel from the idea of causing you suffering. Inevitably the lack of exposure will make it so that their lives don’t impact you at all, and that’s the ideal.

1Blessed is the one

who does not walk in step with the wicked

or stand in the way that sinners take

or sit in the company of mockers,

2but whose delight is in the law of the Lord,

and who meditates on his law day and night.

3That person is like a tree planted by streams of water,l

which yields its fruit in season

and whose leaf does not wither—

whatever they do prospers.

4Not so the wicked!

They are like chaff

that the wind blows away.

5Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,

nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.

6For the Lord watches over the way of the righteous,

but the way of the wicked leads to destruction.

This is a repost from 2017 – the message talks about the era of transitioning.


Last Friday, March 17 I post many interesting facts that I’ve understood about a biblical transition between King David handing over his reign to his son Solomon.  I only posted the scripture without any input from my writing. The Word explanation is life and powerful all by its self.

As I often ask the Lord where are we and what is happening in our earth from heavens perspective?

Now according to the scriptures pertaining to Adonijah, what does the battle between elder brother Adonijah and the 2nd son Solomon is about?  It’s about the battle of 5 things:

1. Law and Grace

2. The enemy for the position of power.

3. The law living in the position of power.l

4.  The reign of the totality of grace – Solomon Temple and the extended presence of Christ in the body of Christ.

5. Faith through Love living.

The enemy of Grace coming into the lives of God church body, Adonijah, in his mischievous kind of why tried to under handedly attempted to steal the position during a transitioning time without the King David realizing it. Adonijah knew his father King David was sick in bed and wasn’t fully equipped to oversee the kingdom.  Because of the promise to David that his son Solomon will inherit the reign of his kingdom, someone from the field watching Adonijah’s error, who  understand protocol ran to the house of David and revealed the treacherous act.  At that moment the King David raised from his bed and placed the coat – King David had the original coat; placed the Kings robe on his son Solomon.

The story has many connotations to feed on for adequate accuracy of His Word for the 2017 current year. Solomon reign as King blessed the nation with the measurement of Solomon’s temple — which is the temple of you.

Be blessed as you read the story.


Here is the Friday scripture posting from Friday.

The Execution of Adonijah

1Kings 2:24-26

…24″Now therefore, as the LORD lives, who has established me and set me on the throne of David my father and who has made me a house as He promised, surely Adonijah shall be put to death today.”

25So King Solomon sent Benaiah the son of Jehoiada; and he fell upon him so that he died.

26Then to Abiathar the priest the king said, “Go to Anathoth to your own field, for you deserve to die; but I will not put you to death at this time, because you carried the ark of the Lord GOD before my father David, and because you were afflicted in everything with which my father was afflicted.”…

So King Solomon gave orders to Benaiah son of Jehoiada, and he struck down Adonijah and he died.

Graceful faith is simply believing daily your steps for an ultimate end.  The word tells us that our steps are ordered by the Lord.  The word also tells us that the word is a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our path.  As you understand profoundly about scripture, you can come to realize that the lamp is an inward knowing leading your way.

Today, keep your ears open to hearing with ears that only your inwardly will know the details where to step next.

Never tear down anything unless you are prepared to build something better in its place.

This rule applies to both individuals and things. It’s easy to criticize other people thoughtlessly for their shortcomings, and equally easy to find fault in their work or in situations that are not to your liking. It is far more difficult to be a builder of people and to create works of art, useful products, or profitable businesses. Make sure you are a builder, not a destroyer of people and things. When you criticize the actions or work of others — your children, your employees, or others for whom you are responsible — make sure your criticisms are positive and directed at the act, or the opportunity for improvement, not the individual. Include specific suggestions for their application and focus on the potential for success.

One of the great things about the word is that it speaks to you regarding you.

Today I would like to share with you the Apostle Paul writings in Galatians 4:21. Here is where Paul speaks about two covenants in reference to Abraham who is the “Father of Faith”.

The word said that Abraham was in two covenants within his house. It said that Abraham has two sons; one by a bondwoman, the other by a freewoman. It states that the one son of the bondwoman was born according to the flesh. You know the story in Genesis. It said that Sarah, Abraham wife became impatient while waiting on the promised son God said would bless nations as many as the stars. Abraham and Sarah operated out of the flesh obtaining a son Ishmael, one of the fruit of the flesh that is written in Galatians 5:19.  They are: 1. Adultery 2. Fornication 3. Uncleanness 4. Lasciviousness 5. Idolatry 6. Witchcraft 7. Hatred 8. Variance 9. Emulations 10. Wrath 11. Strife 12. Seditions 13. Heresies 14. Envying’s 15. Murders 16. Drunkenness 17. Revellings.

What are the type of the fruit of the flesh did Sarah and Abraham acted upon from the list?  1. Adultery – Abraham was under a new covenant of grace and he formed a covenant with law to receive a promise which was not a promise. 2. Fornication – He was in covenant with another person. 3. Envying’s – Later became an issue in Abraham house with the two sons. Sarah had to demand Abraham to put Hagar & Ishmael out because of the conflict it caused the promised son Isaac.

The verse continues — and he of the freewoman through promise, which things are symbolic. The freewoman through promise are the fruit of the spirit. They are: 1. Love 2. Joy 3. Peace 4. Forbearance 5. Kindness 6. Goodness 7. Faithfulness 8. Gentleness 9. Self Control.  It says that against such things there is no law (flesh works operating)

What are the type of the fruit of the spirit did Abraham ignored from the list? 1. Love 2. Forbearance 3. Faithfulness 4. Self Control

I enjoy reviewing the book of Galatians often.  It maintains the awareness that we live under a new covenant of grace, faith, and love in Christ Jesus.

Sonya Buchanan/ 10:30 pm

 


Below are the explanation of the fruit of the flesh in detail.

Adultery [one person married but having sex with someone else] lust of others spouse; indulge illicit lust; giving yourself to illicit sex without payment; gratify illicit sex of the homosexual or the heterosexual; provoking incest; unfaithfulness to God.

Fornication [having sex and not being married to each other], between the unmarried or married; indulge unlawful lust; illicit sexual practice with payment as in prostitution; illicit sexual practice of either sex; lust in the heart.

Uncleanness [morally impure, evil, vile, unlikable], whatever is opposite of purity; having evil thoughts and/or actions. God says that homosexuality, bestiality, and all other forms of sexual perversion render a person unclean.

Lasciviousness [indicating sexual interest or expressive of lust or lewdness], promiscuous, not the act of fornication but everything leading up to it. Like a guy who is a skirt chaser or a woman being a tease. Being improper in your actions and your communications or going around scantly clad in order to induce impure or lustful thoughts and feeling toward you from another person.

Idolatry [the worship of idols, excessive or blind adoration, reverence or devotion to anything other than God], anything dethroning God. This includes praying to saints and statues hoping that god will hear you through them.

Witchcraft [practicing magic using demonic powers], Greek: pharmakeia, (This word gives us our English word: Pharmacy) sorcery, practice of dealing with evil spirits; magical incantations and casting spells and charms upon someone using “magic potions” and drugs of various kinds. Enchantments were used to inflict evil, pains, hatred, sufferings, and death. Or even “white witchcraft” used with good intentions to bring goodness, health, love, joy and other blessings. If the power is not coming from God, then it is technically witchcraft and only bad things will come of it.

Hatred [intense dislike or hostility], lack of regard for another. Bitter dislike and ill-will against anyone; tendency to hold grudges against or be angry at someone; wanting to hurt them.

Variance [conflict, arguing, fighting] not agreeing when you should; a quarrel, being difficult to deal with.

Emulations [resentment against a rival, a person enjoying success or advantage], to copy another to equal or surpass; jealousy as with malice [intent to harm]. Striving to excel at the expense of another; seeking to surpass and outdo others; unbridled rivalry in religion, business, society, and other fields of endeavor. Ice skater Nancy Kerrigan getting hurt by Tonya Harding’s crew back in 1994 is a good example. That event led to the eventual ruin of Tonya Harding’s career. She reaped what she sowed.

Wrath [vengeance or punishment as the consequence of great anger], fierceness; Determined and lasting anger as in getting back at someone for a perceived wrong doing.

Strife [struggling in opposition], Contest for superiority or advantage for selfish gain; not as in playing a game or in a healthy sporting competition. The sport of wrestling is a good example of healthy strife. Strife is not always physical, it can be metal using words like in a religious or political debate. Where it becomes a work of the flesh is when the intention is to hurt the other either physically or mentally or emotionally. Like I tell my kids, “It’s all fun and games till someone starts crying.” That’s when hatred and wrath usually kick in!

Seditions [rebellious disorder]; causing trouble. Stirring up strife in religion, government, at work, home or any other place.

Heresies [divisions in religious communities], The word itself has no evil meaning. It simply refers to a doctrinal view or belief conflicting with the recognized and accepted tenets of a system, church, or party. It becomes a work of the flesh when the heart behind the division is to cause trouble, hurt people or raise ones self up in importance over another. Heresies become evil when sound bible doctrine is rejected and a false doctrine is taught in place of the truth.

Envyings [close to jealousy, a feeling of discontent or covetousness with regard to another’s advantages, success, possessions], ill-will, spite, jealousy; thinking a person is not worthy of having what they have, because you feel you are more deserving.

Murders [the intentional killing of another human being], or organized slaughter. This includes being involved in a murder even if you are not directly responsible for the death.

Drunkenness [intoxication, in this case alcohol but can include any mind altering drug], Excessive drinking or drug use to the point that you diminish or even lose good judgment and self control. Excessive drug use is widely known as the fast track to self destruction and it deeply hurts others who are involved.

Revellings [partying hard, indulging in loud boisterous festivities for no apparent reason], the letting loose of inhibitions and good judgement, getting roudy or going on a drunken rampage; also involves rioting.
