A Refreshing Fountain

A Refreshing Fountain

The Bible is a book that uses many pictures or symbols to convey its true message. Water for example, an element well understood to be absolutely essential to life is often used to portray and explain the thirsting of the human spirit that can only be satisfied by the life giving and sustaining water of […]

Our “Parakletos”

Our “Parakletos”

In Romans 8:26-28 the Apostle teaches us about the Holy Spirit helping us in our weaknesses. The Greek word here is Parakletos meaning someone who is an intercessor, comforter, helper, advocate, and/or a counselor. Outside of the Biblical setting it is technically an attorney who goes to court on behalf of another. Jesus uses the […]

Darkness And Light

Darkness And Light

We are living in times of great darkness upon the earth, times like are described in Isaiah 60:2, “For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, And deep darkness the people …” While this chapter gives Israel hope of restoration from captivity, it also embraces Messianic and Eschatological times. Darkness speaks figuratively of misery, destruction, […]

Who Knows The Way?

Who Knows The Way?

Often the pathway of life is obscure in the distance to our vision. In Joshua 3:3-4 the Israelites have come to such a place having reached the border of Canaan, the land God had promised to give to Abraham and his descendants. The final hurdle was to get across the Jordan River, now in flood […]

Early

In Proverbs 8:17 KJV we read “I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me.” He is speaking here as wisdom personified. Now as we come to the New Testament we learn that Christ is both “the power of God and the wisdom of God” and He has “became […]

Look Unto Jesus

Look Unto Jesus

Today’s meditation comes with a prophetic word that was given to Rose concerning looking unto, and focusing on, the Lord and His promises. It begins in Genesis 13:14-15 where after Abram and Lot had separated (sometimes there must be a separation from someone or something before we can experience the fullness of what God for […]

God Has A Plan

God Has A Plan

In Jeremiah 29:11 God’s word to His chosen people is “I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord. They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope” NLT. His plans for the future and for eternity will be accomplished according to His sovereign will; […]

God On The Move

God On The Move

Today from Jeremiah 32:21 Rose introduces another of the prophetic writings God has inspired her with. Keep in mind that when God makes a prophetic statement, proclamation, or promise it is usually contingent on the response of those to whom He has spoken. Yes His word and promise will ultimately be fulfilled but by an […]
