God is Surrounded by His Faithfulness

1 04 2022

My good friend, Michael Masambu, of Kenya recently posted a three minute devotional about God’s faithfulness that stirred my heart. The nature of God manifests His faithfulness. It is critical to our peace and even our faith. He based his comments on a description of God regarding His promise to King David in Psalm 89. Faithfulness is mentioned four times in the first eight verses, but the most profound is in the eighth verse.

“O Yehovah God of hosts, Who is mighty like You, O Yehovah? Your faithfulness also surrounds You.” Psalm 89:8

There is no way to approach Him without encountering His faithfulness. It literally defines Yehovah God. His faithfulness defines His very essence of being. It is not what He does, it is who He is. He cannot deny His eternal nature. He is faithful. That attribute of God is why Sarah received the faith to supernaturally birth Isaac in her old age.

“By faith Sarah herself also received strength to conceive seed, and she bore a child when she was past the age, because she judged Him faithful who had promised.” Hebrews 11:11

Sarah judged God “FAITHFUL” to keep His promise! So, His faithfulness is revealed through His character, but also through His promised word. Yehovah God always does what He says. He cannot lie! Do you see it? When He speaks, the words emanate from His surrounding faithfulness. It will be done. He said it. That settles it! Hear His word, judge Him faithful, and then fasten your seatbelt! Our faith is embedded in His faithfulness!

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for Israel’s seasonal rains.

Hebrew Artifact Found at Joshua’s Altar

28 01 2022

Joshua altar talisman-750x375

Why is this find so important? It is dated 1,200 BC at the time of Israel entering the Promised Land. It is evidence of the truth of the Biblical account of Joshua building an altar to Yehovah in the Land. The altar has been there, but this artifact confirms that it was Hebrew. This is another of many discoveries over recent years pointing to the faithful promises of God and the accuracy of the Bible.

Talisman inscribed with ancient Hebrew found at Joshua’s Altar Artifact, which researchers have dated to 1,200 BCE, bears an early Hebrew form of the letter “aleph” and a symbol that resembles a lotus flower. Head of the Samaria Regional Council Yossi Dagan said that the talisman was proof of the Jewish people’s deep connection to Samaria. “The new findings unearthed at Mount Ebal prove again and again the deep and inviolable connection the Jewish people have to Samaria and the entire Land of Israel. The discovery of Joshua’s Altar by the late archaeologist Professor Adam Zertal is one of the most important in the history of Land of Israel archaeology,” Dagan said.

Another recent find was of a 2,000 year old coin from around the time of the destruction of the Temple. Today, in the face of relentless lies against the very existence of ancient Israel, archaeology exposes the lies and gives living proof of Israel’s history.

Rare 2,000-Year-Old Coin Found in Israel Liel Krutokop, an 11-year-old girl from Petah Tikva, has found a silver shekel from the Second Temple period on the ‘Pilgrimage Road’ in the City of David, Jerusalem, Israel. “The silver coin weighs about 14 grams. On one side is an inscription of a cup with the caption ‘Israeli shekel’ and next to the cup are the letters ‘ש”ב’ — shorthand for ‘second year’ — the second year of the Great Revolt of the Jews against the Romans (67-68 CE),” said Dr. Ari Levy, director of the excavations from the Israel Antiquities Authority, and colleagues. “On the other side of the coin is an inscription identified as the headquarters of the High Priest, and next to it appears in ancient Hebrew script the words ‘Holy Jerusalem’.”

“Yehovah did not set His love on you nor choose you because you were more in number than any other people, for you were the least of all peoples; but because Yehovah loves you, and because He would keep the oath which He swore to your fathers, Yehovah has brought you out with a mighty hand, and redeemed you from the house of bondage, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt. Therefore know that Yehovah your God, He is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and mercy for a thousand generations with those who love Him and keep His commandments;” Deuteronomy 7:7-9

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and thank Him for the snow and rain.

God Will Make a Way!

4 04 2020

“God will make a way where there seems to be no way!” Doreen and I remember one of our best family vacations was in the mid-eighties. We had a brand new car and took a wonderful road trip from Florida to New England with our three girls. It was  notable for two things (in no particular order). My Mom sent along her famous peanut butter fudge, which we sampled each time we crossed a state line (love New England). The other was that every morning we started the day with our favorite song, God Will Make a Way. Watching Pastor Randy & Peggy Morris share that song this morning released tears of worship and thankfulness for God’s faithfulness. Every book I have written has that foundation. God is faithful. Yehovah is faithful.

We learned a new song with the same message while ministering in Kenya. Carol Achieng led the worship and Michael Masambu led the PDA Youth Conference (Purpose, Destiny, Achievement). Here are the lyrics:

“Who has the final say? Yehovah has the final say. Who has the final say? Yehovah has the final say. He turned my life around. He turned my life around. He makes a way where there seems no way. Yehovah has the final say!”

Doreen and I watched as our rental house burned down with all our possessions in 2001. The miraculous presence  of the Holy Spirit ministered supernatural peace at that time. That gave rise to my paraphrase: “peace that doesn’t make sense.” Logically we had every right to “freak out” and fall apart. But no, God was faithful. He was right there with us through it. It was real. We still have that peace and never did fall apart, even though some thought we would after the shock wore off. But, rather we have experienced over and over and over that He is faithful. Hallelujah!

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7

If we are faithless, He remains faithful; He cannot deny Himself.2 Timothy 2:13 

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain.

God is Faithful

Yeshua Lives! Israel Lives!

The eternal promises of Yehovah God are based entirely on His character of faithfulness. He does not lie, and He keeps His word, even to a thousand generations. I want to look at one promise in Jeremiah that illustrates God’s faithful character. Jeremiah 29 has one of the most quoted verses in the Bible. Yet, it is greatly misunderstood. Christians are quick to jump on verse 11:

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says Yehovah, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11

This text is not a blanket promise that things will always get better for everybody. History and life certainly contradicts that interpretation. So what is the message here that is so encouraging to believers? I see three distinct messages in the context of Jeremiah 29.

  1. First, this is written historically to the specific Jews who were taken away from Jerusalem and Judah in the 70 year-long Babylonian captivity. In verse 11, Jeremiah speaks a literal promise that Yehovah God has not forgotten them. They are to live and thrive in that strange land. Notice this verse:

And seek the peace of the city where I have caused you to be carried away captive, and pray to Yehovah for it; for in its peace you will have peace. Jeremiah 29:7

So verse 11 is a literal promise that God will restore them after 70 years.

  1. Secondly, this promise applies as a general principle of God’s covenant faithfulness, but only to those who believe and follow His ways. In that sense, it applies to us today who love Yehovah and walk in His pathway. However, it cannot be taken as a blanket promise for all people. There is still reaping and sowing and accountability. Judah’s physical and spiritual adultery is why they ended up in Babylon. If you want to claim the promise, you also sign on for the accountability part. So remember that there is a future and a hope….in God!

Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. Jeremiah 29:12-13

  1. Thirdly, there is a literal application for Israel today! Yes, it applied to historical Judah. Yes, it applies to believers everywhere who call on Him from the heart. They will find Him. But almost like a verse that doesn’t fit, verse 14 speaks of a different historical period that is way in the future.

I will be found by you, says Yehovah, and I will bring you back from your captivity; I will gather you from all the nations and from all the places where I have driven you, says Yehovah, and I will bring you to the place from which I cause you to be carried away captive. Jeremiah 29:14

This does not refer to Egypt or Babylon or any limited captivity in a single nation, but to the future great Diaspora (dispersion). It foretells a time when Israel will have been scattered to all the nations of the world. This has been their condition for nearly 2,000 years since the fall of Jerusalem in 70 AD. BUT GOD! But, Yehovah does not leave them scattered. He has planned one last great regathering of His chosen ones to the PLACE from which they were scattered. We are now eyewitnesses of this great miracle that proves Yehovah’s covenant faithfulness. He is the promise keeping God!

I wrote in my book, Speak To The Dirt!, that God has no Plan B. The church did not replace Israel, we were adopted by the Father and added to the family. If God broke His promise to Israel then we have no logical basis to trust Him to keep His promises to Christians. Ah, but He has kept His Israel promise. He is restoring them to their land, their language, their scriptures, their God and their Messiah. Therefore we trust His promises to us.

Yay God! We are with you. Count us in. We rejoice in the true peace of Jerusalem. Come quickly, Lord Jesus! Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.
