The Earth Trembles...


"The Lord reigns, let the earth be glad;
    let the distant shores rejoice.
Clouds and thick darkness surround him;
    righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne.
Fire goes before him
    and consumes his foes on every side.
His lightning lights up the world;
    the earth sees and trembles.
The mountains melt like wax before the Lord,
    before the Lord of all the earth.
The heavens proclaim his righteousness,
    and all peoples see his glory.
All who worship images are put to shame,
    those who boast in idols—
    worship him, all you gods!
Zion hears and rejoices
    and the villages of Judah are glad
    because of your judgments, Lord.
For you, Lord, are the Most High over all the earth;
    you are exalted far above all gods.
10 Let those who love the Lord hate evil,
    for he guards the lives of his faithful ones
    and delivers them from the hand of the wicked.
11 Light shines[a] on the righteous
    and joy on the upright in heart.
12 Rejoice in the Lord, you who are righteous,
    and praise his holy name."
Psalm 97, NIV

James 1:12

"Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him." James 1:12 NIV
Back to the old account, after a misfortune of some kind.  Stay tuned for the next blog..!

From Facebook

Today will be a short post; I wanted to share something that I had written on my Facebook page this morning.  Lately I have been speaking with people of different faiths, and they have been questioning me about the sovereignty, righteousness, and all-around Holiness of Yeshua as G-d.  During devotions this morning, I came upon this scripture (Biblegateway.com verse of the day), and began to journal my thoughts - here is one of the things I have come up with...

"The LORD is my strength and my song, and he has become my salvation; this is my God, and I will praise him, my father’s God, and I will exalt him." Exodus 15:2 NIV

When scholars speak of the "different gods" of the New and Old Testament, I believe they fail to recognize the sovereignty of Adonai. He chooses to discipline, yet He has never existed apart from His nature - which is love. If Miriam can sing this in the desert, after crossing the Red Sea, after being hunted by the Egyptians, after being in the presence of massive death of the firstborn of all those who ignored or did not believe her G-d... then it is obvious that she experienced much more than anger and wrath. Miriam experienced and had knowledge of the immense love that Adonai dwells in, yet she and her brothers did not ignore His power.
Have a wonderful evening, and have Blessed week!
