Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?
Well, after a few years of listening to multiple sides of this scripture in the Church, the Helper helped reveal something. I’m not going to say “I have the answer! You must get this! This is the truth!” I’m only sharing what the Lord showed me via a prayerful request for Teaching on this scripture. The Lord’s answer was – pay attention to the context.. Huh, imagine that…
The Lord has taught me some further understanding about walking in faith, whereas I once thought that a Blind Step of Faith was incorrect. Faith believes in the unseen, walking in faith, not by sight. It’s a hope for something that is not yet – believing in the promises of God. Holding fast to the thing that is afar off and trusting that God is with me. Thank you Lord for opening my mind and teaching me about walking in faith. I pray that this post will help any readers.. and I pray that it is written on my heart, in Jesus name. Amen. –
Blessed be the Sword of the Spirit. John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. Jesus is the Word.
For anyone following what the Lord has been teaching me lately, you’ll see the Sword of the Spirit at work here. Thank you Lord God. Isaiah 55:11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
After reading a brother’s post about Bible Study, I decided to put together a Top 10 Bible Study suggestion list.
The Lord and I did a bible study this morning at an assisted living retirement center. As I readied myself, I worried about not having a message. The Sword of the Spirit: “Don’t worry, I will put words in your mouth.” So I prayed. As I started prayer, the verse that has been speaking to me the last couple of days (see here and here) was on my lips:
Philippians 2:5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
I can not stress the power behind this verse enough. My entire lesson this week has come full circle and the Word has now exploded. Check this testimony/teaching out –
I’m going through the fire right now and will reveal our blessed Helper and Savior Jesus Christ pulling me out of this pit as it happens. Oh the mind games and emotions..
At this very moment, emotions are overcoming me. Emotions of sadness, confusion, a sinking feeling inside, worry, anxiousness, etc. I’m near tears. Alone. My thoughts are spiraling out of control. Emotions are taking over and they are feeding more thoughts. Snowballing is in motion…
2 minutes ago, I was typing a blog titled: “I need prayer.” Then the first sentence came out, “I need help, I am sinking.” As I typed those words, the Sword of the Spirit came to mind – “Life and death are in the power of the tongue.” I said it, so I have it. What do I believe?? Then He said: “Remember!!!”, and I started to remember the things of our Teacher that He taught me about these mind games and emotions. WHAM! Eyes opened. Hello Satan. I’m under attack. To the Word I go –
It is an interesting thing to watch the Word of God come alive in life. Everything that the Word teaches is real, very real. It is the Living Word of God.
The Word is fluid, it moves with us through our walk in life. Living Water. He speaks through the Word with teaching, moldings, conviction, and so on. He guides us and fellowships with us through the Word. Prayers are answered and He reveals His will. Here are a couple of examples:
