FLAMING ARROWS OF SLANDER

“Taking up the shield of faith with which you will be able to extinguish all the FLAMING ARROWS of the evil one” (Ephesians 6:16 NASB).

Slander can be compared to an arrow; because an archer strikes without a victim knowing who hit them. The damage is inflicted from afar. The evil spread by a slanderous tongue attacks at a distance.  Slander can be further compared to flaming arrows; because its effects easily spread like fire. Recall how slander wreaks triple destruction on the one who speaks, the one who listens, and the one slandered. (Please refer to https://sapphirethroneministries.wordpress.com/2020/10/13/slander-wreaks-triple-destruction/).

In these days of social media, there are typically many more people listening to and spreading slander (typically unbeknownst to them), which seems to be creating an unsettling and raging wildfire via the world wide web. We are literally witnessing the greatest deception and distortion of reality that this world has ever seen. This is the time to FIX your eyes upon Yeshua (Jesus) and ask him to set a guard over your mouth.

Many moons ago, I saw in the Spirit many arrows coming out from a mouth.  Its tongue was like a bow while the arrows were destructive words. The Book of James is an excellent go-to reference when it comes to the tongue – a slanderous tongue or otherwise: “For we all stumble in many things. If anyone does not stumble in word, he is a perfect man, able also to bridle the whole body. Indeed, we put bits in horses’ mouths that they may obey us, and we turn their whole body. Look also at ships: although they are so large and are driven by fierce winds, they are turned by a very small rudder wherever the pilot desires. Even so the tongue is a little member and boasts great things. See how great a forest a little fire kindles! And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity. The tongue is so set among our members that it defies the whole body, and sets on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire by hell” (James 3:2-6 NKJV).

Once we sin with our words, we cannot call back an arrow once its released. Rabbeinu Yonah elaborates in the Gates of Repentance that slander outweighs the worst sins, even the three cardinal transgressions of idolatry, illicit relations, and murder. One reason slander is considered so egregious is that even when the slanderer wishes to repent, they must ask forgiveness of all who have suffered from their damaging remarks. Besides probably not knowing everyone the slander influenced, there is the additional issue of having to admit one’s slanderous remarks when the victim is probably unaware of you kindling the fire.

Thank God He is able to clean up our sinful messes: “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9).  Always remember that we all have our part to play. Confession doesn’t exonerate us from doing the right things, like repentance, recompense, restitution, etc.

One of the things that kept King David so humble was having to constantly deal with slanderous tongues. King David has this to say about the man – Doeg the Edomite – who slandered him to King Saul, which caused Saul to hate and pursue him: “Why do you boast in evil, O mighty man? The goodness of God endures continually. Your tongue devises destruction, like a sharp razor, working deceitfully. You love evil more than good, lying rather than speaking righteousness. Selah. You love all devouring words, you deceitful tongue. God shall likewise destroy you forever; He shall take you away, and pluck you out of your dwelling place, and uproot you from the land of the living, Selah” (Psalms 52:1-5 NKJV).

David always sought to apply any lessons to himself first:  “I said, ‘I will guard my ways, lest I sin with my tongue; I will restrain my mouth with a muzzle, while the wicked are before me.’ I was mute with silence I held my peace even from good; and my sorrow was stirred up. My heart was hot within me; while I was musing, the fire burned. Then I spoke with my tongue: ‘LORD, make me to know my end, and what is the measure of my days, that I may know how frail I am. Indeed, You have made my days as handbreadths, and my age is as nothing before You; certainly every man at his best state is but vapor. SELAH. Surely every man walks about like a shadow; surely they busy themselves in vain; he heaps up riches, and does not know who will gather them. And now, Lord, what do I wait for? My hope is in You’” (Psalms 39:1-7 NKJV).

King David’s shield of faith was that he knew that his hope was in the Lord of Love alone. May all of our hearts cry: “Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me” (Psalms 51:10 NKJV). Stopping slander starts with ourselves.

Give em heaven!!!

SLANDER WREAKS TRIPLE DESTRUCTION

With everything flying in the air these days, the Lord has been speaking to me about slander. As with all good and godly lessons, this one is starting at home (i.e., with me). Due to the fact that I cannot know all the facts in most situations, I have been being convicted about how many times I possibly falsely thought or said something due to my own perceptions.

My handy-dandy Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary (10th Edition) first defines “slander” as an action word – a verb – saying that slander is to utter slander against, or to defame (to disgrace, to harm the reputation by libel or to slander, to accuse, or to malign). The noun form of “slander” is defined as stumbling block : the utterance of false charges or misrepresentations which defame and damage another’s reputation : a false and defamatory oral statement about a person.

Slander wreaks triple destruction on the one who speaks, the one who listens and the one slandered. Not only is this triple threat possibly deadly for all involved; but the speaker of the slander digs a deeper hole, as they bear false witness, which can be a slippery slope into a pit for all involved, if we don’t take our minds captive to the obedience of Christ (II Cor 10:5) and put a guard on our lips (Psa. 141:3).

We should all take note that slander checks off items on the list that God hates: “These six things the LORD hates, Yes, seven are an abomination to Him: A proud look, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that are swift in running to evil, a false witness who speaks lies, and one who sows discord among brethren” (Proverbs 6:16-19 NKJV). Lying tongue. Check. False witness. Check. Sowing discord among brethren. Check.

I don’t know about you; but my soul has been sooooo grieved at how much slander is flying about during this season in history. I sooooo long for the righteous judgments of the Messiah and His Kingdom.

Please remember that “of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end, upon the Throne of David and over His kingdom, to order it and establish it with judgment and justice from that time forward, even forever. The zeal of the LORD of Hosts will perform this” (Isaiah 9:7 NKJV). Kings and priests of the Order of Melchizedek increase His government and peace when we each tackle this giant called “slander” in our own mind and life, so that the kingdoms of this earth can become the kingdoms of our God.

A continual test for King David, which kept him humble and teachable, was slander. How did David deal with slander? One of the ways was how he focused first thing in the morning and each night before he laid down to sleep. Every morning David engaged God first thing through prayer, because his personal relationship with God was foremost. Every evening David chose to forgive his enemies for any wrongdoing before he laid down to sleep in peace.

May we have a heart of David. “May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Your sight, O LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer” (Psalms 19:14 NASB).

Give em heaven!!!

SET MY NATIONS FREE!!!

“He who sits in the heavens laughs, the Lord scoffs at them. Then He will speak to them in His anger and terrify them in His fury, saying, ‘But as for Me, I have installed My King upon Zion, My holy mountain.’ I will surely tell of the decree of the LORD: He said to Me, ‘You are My Son, today I have begotten You. Ask of Me, and I will surely give the nations as Your inheritance’” (Psalms 2:4-8 NASB).

The Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot) is also the Feast of the Nations. A little touted aspect of the Feast of Tabernacles is that all the nations of the world are called to join Is-real in worshiping God. Did you know that 70 bulls used to be sacrificed daily during Sukkot according to the pattern designed by King David and carried out by his son Solomon?

Seventy is a significant number when it comes to the nation of Israel and the nations of the world. When Jacob and his family went to Egypt, there were 70 people (Exodus 1:5). We are told that it was in Mitzrayim (i.e., the Land of Egypt)that they became a nation.

Not only are the nations of the world connected to the Feast of Tabernacles through the sacrificing of 70 bulls during the week of Sukkot, but the nations of the world started out as seventy nations that were disbursed from the Tower of Babel.

Scripture tells us that the Feast of Tabernacles will be celebrated by all the nations of the world during the Messianic Age (Zechariah 14:16-18). This Biblical promise can be traced back to God’s promise to Abraham in Genesis 12:3, as it is written: “And I will bless whose who bless you, and the one who curses you I will curse. And in you all the families of the earth will be blessed.”

Yesterday was the right time during the Feast of Tabernacles for the Judge of the Universe to proclaim: “Set My nations free!!!” This holy judgment was stacked on top of many scrolls written in heaven in order to join the things that Messiah Yeshua and His people have already established on earth, as it is in heaven. Behold, Yeshua’s golden scepter has come down and touched the earth to set His sheep nations free. Be bold and join Him in crying out for the redemptions of the nations.

“Let My people go, that they may hold to a feast to Me in the wilderness” (Exodus 5:1).

“Let My people go, that they may serve Me” (Exodus 8:1).

Let My nations free!

Give em heaven!!!

MYSTICAL GUESTS DURING SUKKOT

There is a custom in Hebrew households to invite the “ushpizin” (mystical guests from the Great Cloud of Witnesses) during the Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot). There are traditionally seven of these mystical guests – Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Moses, Aaron and David – where a different guest (i.e., ushpiz: אוּשְׁפִּיז) enters the sukkah each night of Sukkot. The Hebrews welcome each guest by offering them a place at their table. This is similar to the tradition of putting a place at the Passover Table for Elijah.

This year our tenth School of the Firmament class was held during Tabernacles. Since we are delving into the Ascension Songs of David, we invited King David to our banqueting table in our spiritual sukkah. We were so touched with David sharing his heart with us through some psalms that he wrote. Deep called to deep, as our supernal friend David was so vulnerable with us. Words don’t quite explain it. It’s like we sat down with a new-found friend that we felt we knew all our lives.

I would highly recommend that you and yours invite these immortal heroes of the faith to your table during The Feast too.

Give em heaven!!!

TABERNACLES IS A FEAST OF REST

When I was talking with the Lord this morning, He reminded me that the Feast of Tabernacles is all about fulfillment – filling up the dwelling places of God in this world’s wilderness. It about His dwelling places – you and I – being in a place and space of rest.

This was confirmed by the first post I saw: “The Feast of Tabernacles is a Feast of Rest… The Feast of Tabernacles… The Feast of the Open Book… the Bible is going to be opened… mysteries in the Bible will be revealed. It is the Feast of Rest, the Feast of Glory. It is called the Feast of Restoration, the Feast of Ingathering and the Feast of His Appearing.” (Paul Keith Davis)

In this Kingdom Day, the Dwelling Place that He is building up in the Spirit is the New Jerusalem, which is connected in Scripture to a new heaven and a new earth as well as the Bride of the Messiah: “Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth passed away, and there is no longer any sea. And I saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, made ready as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne, saying, ‘Behold, the Tabernacle of God is among men, and He will dwell among them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself will be among them” (Revelation 21:1-3 NASB).

I wrote an article many moons ago about fulfillment being a place of rest => https://sapphirethroneministries.wordpress.com/2017/05/21/fulfillment-is-a-place-of-rest/. In it, I reveal that “the disannulling of the commandment going before” in Hebrews 7:18 KJV is not what most people have been taught that it is. Basically, the prefix “dis” on any word means the opposite. Take for instance that “dislocate” is the opposite of locate, “discredit” is the opposite of credit, and “discontinue” is the opposite of continue. Therefore, “disannul” should be the opposite of annul.

When one dig deep into the root of the word “disannul” in Hebrews 7:18, you will discover an amazing reality and picture of a worship-filled rest position in Christ.

So, when you think of God’s Dwelling Place in the Spirit and it’s connection to the Feast of Tabernacles, remember that Messiah Yeshua (Jesus Christ) did not come to abolish the law, but to fulfill it (Matthew 5:17). He filled it up full of meaning. Let’s walk like Yeshua walked. Talk like He talked. He was/is not legalistic. He was/is righteous, just and holy. Yeshua was not full of unsanctified mercy. He personified perfect peace, love and kindness that leads us on His path of righteousness for His Name’s Sake.

I believe that it’s very important that this year’s Feast of Tabernacles began on His Seventh Day Sabbath – His day of rest according to Scripture. May you and I press into the glorious reality of the Feast of Tabernacles being a place of your and His worship-filled rest.

Give em heaven!!!

SCARLET SINS AS WHITE AS SNOW

Today marks The Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur) on the Biblical Calendar. In Hebrew, Yom Kippur means the day of covering, cancelling, pardon, and reconciling.

“For it is on this day that atonement shall be made for you to cleanse you; and you shall be clean from all your sins before the Lord. It is to be a sabbath of solemn rest for you, that you may humble your souls: it is a permanent statute” (Leviticus 16:30-31 NAS).

In Leviticus Chapter 23, this is one of the seven feasts that God calls “My feasts” where the Lord is calls all His people to meet with Him at a particular time in a specific place in order to become betrothed – engaged to be married (Refer to Leviticus 23:2,27-32). The spring feasts speak of the Messiah’s first coming while the fall feasts speak of His second coming. The two winter feasts in the Word of God portray God’s people’s journey to becoming one with their Beloved as His Bride. Please refer to https://sapphirethroneministries.wordpress.com/2017/03/09/feast-of-esther-is-a-bridal-feast/.

The Day of Atonement is a Fall Feast; therefore, it is one of the Biblical Bridal Feasts that specifically portray His second coming. However, we need to first understand how Messiah Yeshua fulfilled the Day of Atonement during His first coming before we can flow into the understanding of His second coming.

There are many prophetic pictures in the Day of Atonement. We are going to focus on the special ceremony, which purged defilement from God’s House and His people. The heart of this ceremony in the Old Testament was when the High Priest (Kohen HaGadol) brought a bull and two goats as a special Yom Kippur offering. First, the bull was sacrificed to purge God’s House from any uncanny vibrations, which were caused by the misdeeds of the High Priest himself and his household (Lev. 16:6). Second, one of the goats was chosen by lot to be sacrificed to purge God’s House from any defilement stimulated by the misdeeds of the entire nation (Lev. 16:8-9). Then, the second goat marked for Azazel is sent away to wander in the wilderness (Lev. 16:10).

Before the goat for Azazel is sent out into the wilderness, the High Priest laid both of his hands upon the goat’s head and confessed all the iniquities and transgression of the Israelites; thus, putting all the misdeeds on the goat (Lev. 16:21). Scripture tells us the “the goat shall carry on it all their iniquities to an inaccessible region” (Leviticus 16:22). Yeshua did this when He died on the Cross as a sin offering during His first coming when Father God laid the sins of the world upon Him (1 John 4:10).

Azazel was commonly seen as a type of satan (Ha satan – of the Satanic Kingdom). During Yom Kippur, Azazel personifies the idea that the people’s sins and their evil consequences were to be sent back to the spirit of desolation and ruin, the source of all impurity. Simply put, Azazel personified wickedness in contrast with the righteous government of YHVH. 

The Book of Enoch confirms this by connecting Azazel to the fall of the angels to Mount Hermon. Azazel is portrayed in the Book of Enoch as the leader of the rebellious giants in the time preceding The Flood. We are told that Azazel taught men the art of warfare – making of swords, knives, shields, and coats of mail – while he taught women the art of deception (seduction) through adorning their bodies, dyeing their hair and painting their faces. Azazel is also credited for teaching the people the secrets of witchcraft, which led them into wickedness and impurity. This was until the Lord commanded the Archangel Raphael to bind him hand and foot to chain him to the rough and jagged rocks of Ha Beth Hadudo where Azazel was to abide until the great Day of Judgment when he will be cast into the fire to be consumed forever (1 Enoch 8:1; 9:6; 10:4-6). The picture of Azazel being sent into the wilderness is understood to be a picture of satan being cast into the lake of fire (Rev. 19:20).

Let us take a closer look at the purging ceremony related to the two goats. The first lot said, “La Adonai” (To the Lord). The second lot said, “La Azazel” (To the scapegoat). The High Priest took the two golden lots – one marked La Adonai and the other Le Azazel – and placed one upon the head of each goat, which sealed its fate. It was considered a good sign if the lot marked La Adonai was drawn by the priest’s right hand; but for 40 years prior to the destruction of the Temple in 70 AD (C.E.), the lot La Adonai was drawn by the priest’s left hand.

Not only was the lot La Adonai was drawn in the priest’s left hand, but there was another significant sign. In the ceremony of the two goats, both goats were considered to be one offering. A crimson sash was tied around the horns of the goat marked Azazel. An interesting tradition arose that is mentioned in the Mishnah. A portion of the crimson sash was attached to the Door of the Temple before the goat was sent into the wilderness. The sash would turn from red to white as the goat met its end. This signaled to the people that God had accepted their sacrifices and their sins were forgiven. “Though your sins are as scarlet, they will be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they will be like wool: (Isaiah 1:18 NASB). For 40 years before the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem, the sash stopped turning white. This, of course, is when the Temple Shift happened when Yeshua was slain on the tree. For more information about the Temple Shift => http://wp.me/p158HG-vV.  

In short, God gave the casting of lots for the two goats ceremony during Yom Kippur to teach us how He will judge the nations of the world prior to the Messianic Age, known as the Millennium, which is His second coming. The nations of the world will be judged as sheep (Adonai) nations or goat (Azazel) nations. The sheep nations will enter the Messianic Kingdom (i.e., the Millennium) as taught in Matthew 25:31-46.

G’mar Hatima Tova May you be sealed in the Book of Life!

DAVID ANOINTED AS KING

When David was 28 years-old, the Prophet Samuel anointed him as king, which literally ended his pastoral life as a shepherd. David pastoral life had prepared him to become the shepherd of the flock of Israel. The Midrash Samuel 20 relates that in one day David had strangled four lions and three bears that attacked his flock with his bare hands. Can imagine how strong he was?!

When Samuel came to anoint one of Jesse’s sons king, his first thought was the handsome and eldest Eliab was the one; but the holy anointing oil said otherwise. When Samuel attempted to pour oil upon each of David’s brothers in succession, the oil remained in the vessel. The Jewish Encyclopedia tells us that when it came David’s turn, the oil flowed freely and the drops of oil that fell on David’s clothes immediately changed into pearls and diamonds. That would have been so cool to watch. Then to top it all off, when the anointing was finished, the horn was still miraculously full.

This is when David’s mother steps forward revealing her secret. For you see, Jesse and David’s brothers had thought that David was a son of a slave. As with many marriages, Jesse’s martial life had some troubles. As an antidote, Jesse designed to liberate his favorite female slave and marry her. Jesse’s wife found out about Jesse’s design and frustrated it by disguising herself as this slave.  Thus, Jesse unwittingly married his first wife a second time. The result of their union was David who was then passed off as a son of a slave, so Jesse could be left in his error (Yalḳ., Makiri, ed. Buber, ii. 214). The supposed son of a slave – David – was not educated with Jesse’s other sons. He passed his days in the wilderness pasturing sheep where he was tender and loving to his flock.  When David’s mother came forward to reveal her little secret that had been kept so many years, Jesse and David’s brothers learned for the first time that he was not the son of a slave; but a descendant of Miriam, the sister of Moses, just like them.

You are invited to join us in discovering more about David’s Dynasty, which is now arising as the Messiah ben (son of) David’s Kingdom in the next School of the Firmament #10 Class being held on October 5, 2020. We are also going through the psalms that help David ascend. They are such current and glorious words for such a time as this.

YOM TERUAH ANNOUNCES THE DAY OF THE LORD

“Blow a trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm on My holy mountain! Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble, for the Day of the Lord is coming; and surely it is near, a day of darkness and gloom, a day of clouds and thick darkness. As the dawn is spread over the mountains, so there is a great and mighty people; there has never been anything like it, nor will there be again after it to the years of many generations” (Joel 2:1-2 NASB).

We are currently in a special season known as teshuvah – the Season of Repentance. It begins on the first day of the month of Elul and continues for forty days. Thirty days into the Season of Repentance we come to a Biblical Feast that is Yom Teruah – The Feast of Trumpets, or quite literally the Day of the Awakening Blast. Teruah means “an awakening blast.”Technically, this feast doesn’t have a name. Scripture only says that it is the day of blowing the trumpets

“Speak to the sons of Israel, saying, ‘In the seventh month on the first of the month you shall have a rest, a reminder by blowing of trumpets, a holy convocation” (Leviticus 23:24 NASB).

Now in the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall also have a holy convocation: you shall do no laborious work. It will be to you a day for blowing trumpets” (Numbers 29:1 NASB).

There are many ways the trumpets (shofars) are used in Scripture. Take for example these few samples (not an all-inclusive list):

[1] God’s Word, that His Jewish people call the Torah, was given to Israel with the sound of the shofar (Exodus 19:19).

[2] Israel will be advised of the advent of the Messiah with the sound of the shofar (Zechariah 9:14-16).

[3] The shofar is blown to assemble God’s people for war (Judges 3:27).

 [4] The shofar reminds us that God is sovereign (Psalms 47:5).

 [5] The shofar is a call to repentance (Isaiah 58:1).

[6] The blowing of the shofar ushers in the Day of the Lord (Joel 2:1).

When I sought the Lord about the significance of the Feast of Trumpets in 2020, which according to one calendar starts sundown on September 18, 2020 and ends on nightfall on September 20, God highlighted ushering in the Day of the Lord. When I say “day” in context with the “Day of the Lord,” I personally believe that it is a season with its advent marked by a day of blowing awakening trumpets. By the way, other calendars may differ. The Lord has told a dear friend of mine that all of man’s calendar are off, but He know the time. I choose to celebrate sundown September 18th due to the majority of Hebrews celebrating Rosh Ha Shanah on that date. My intention is to provide a bridge. BTW – Rosh Ha Shanah has Babylonian origins.

The prophet Joel warns that the Day of the Blast of the Trumpet is a terrible day that sounds the alarm on His holy hill – Zion. Even though both Christians and Jews look forward to this day of deliverance when the Day of the Lord trumpet sounds, many are unaware of the severity of this day of reckoning. Behold, the kindness and severity of God. It will be the best of times and the worst of times.

Everyone will need to keep laser-focused on our Beloved in the coming days, months and years. Pray. Repent. Plead the Blood of Yeshua (Jesus). Spend time in His Presence. Get into the Bible. Learn His Word and live by it. I believe that it will not only be dreadful for those unprepared and the wicked ones, but it will also be a dark and frightening day for the righteous that will causes all to press into Him and hopefully become like Him.

God is a good God. Always has been. Always will be. Don’t forget the good parts of Joel Chapter 2:  “It will come about after this that I will pour out My Spirit on all mankind; and your sons and daughters will prophesy, your  old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions. Even on the male and female servants I will pour out My Spirit in those days. … And it will come about that whoever calls on the name of the LORD will be delivered; for on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there will be those who escape, as the LORD has said, even among the survivors whom the LORD calls” (Joel 2:28-32 NASB).

Never ever forget the glorious and comforting promise that “whoever calls on the name of the LORD will be delivered (saved).” Exciting times! Always remember that there is a good and godly purpose to all this. Please refer to https://sapphirethroneministries.wordpress.com/2020/08/18/get-ready-to-rumble-soar/.

RESTING PLACE IN HIS LUXURIOUS LOVE

“The Lord is my best friend and my shepherd, I always have more than enough. He offers a resting place for me in His luxurious love. His tracks take me to an oasis of peace, the quiet brook of bliss” (Psalms 23:1-2 TPT).

Don’t you just love this Psalms 23 snippet from The Passion Translation?

The most common Hebrew word for “shepherd” is taken from the root word ra-ah, which also means “best friend.” Shepherds don’t just have a relationship with anyone. A shepherd is focused on His own flock(s). His sheep recognize no other shepherd. When the Shepherd calls, His sheep are quick to pay attention and they come running to Him. The sheep of His pasture relate to Him, like they do with their very best friend. It is a pleasurable, easy, and loving two-way path of righteousness.

The phrase “His luxurious love” implies that His love is the finest and richest kind of abundant, unconditional love that flows with great ease and comfort. The Greek Word for unconditional love is agape, which merges two words. Ago means “to lead, like a shepherd,” and pao means “to rest.” Love is the Great Shepherd of our souls leading us to the place of true rest in His perfect and pure heart.

The one who dwells in an ascended place of rest is far above the madness of this fallen world. “He offers a resting place for me in His luxurious love” (Psalms 23:2 TPT).

“He who abides in the secret place of the Most High will dwell in the shadow of the Almighty” (Psalms 91:1). “Most High” is God’s Name El Elyon, which comes the Hebrew root that means “to ascend.” When you and I habitually rest in the secret of Elyon – The Ascended One – we are concealed by His all-sufficient, all-knowing, and unlimited love. This is our “oasis of peace, the quiet brook of bliss” (Psalms 23:2 TPT).

Give em heaven!!!

ENEMIES OF PURE WORSHIP

Music Piano Dog Girl

The quintessential example of a pure worshiper is King David. There are so many things that we can learn from his life. One of these phenomena deals with the enemies of pure worship.

Psalms 5 was written in regard to Doeg and Athithophel who were enemies of David. Both Dorg and Athithopel were guilty of causing bloodshed and permitting illegal marriages. Doeg caused the murder of the priests of Nob and permitted David’s wife Michal to marry another man – Palti. Ahithophel advised Absalom to kill his father David and to consort with his father’s concubines.

1 For the conductor, on the nechilos, a psalm of David. 2 Hear my words, HASHEM, perceive my thoughts. 3 Harken to the sound of my outcry; my King and my God, for to You [alone] do I pray. 4 HASHEM, at dawn, as I arrange [my prayer] before You, and I wait expectantly. 5 For You are not a God who desires wickedness, no evil sojourns with You. 6 Roisters cannot stand firm before Your eyes, You despise all evildoers. 7 May You doom the speakers of deception; HASHEM abhors a bloodthirsty and deceitful man. 8 But I, through Your abundant kindness I will enter Your House; I will prostrate myself toward Your Holy Sanctuary in awe of You. 9 HASHEM, guide me in Your righteousness, because of my watchful enemies; make Your way straight before me. 10 For there is no sincerity in the mouth of any of them, their inner [thought] is treacherous; their throat an open grave, their tongue is glib. 11 Declare them guilty, O God, may they fall short in their schemes; cast them away because of their many sins, for they have rebelled  against You. 12 But all who take refuge in You will rejoice, forever they will sing joyously, You will shelter them; and those who love Your Name will exult in You. 13 When You will bless the righteous, HASHEM, You will envelop him with favor like a shield. ( Psalms 5:1-13  Tanach ).

Let’s pull out some general principles set forth in Psalms 5 with regard to the enemies of pure worship:

[1] Roisters cannot stand firm before Your eyes, You despise all evildoers.” (Psalms 5:6). Some of the enemies of pure worship are roisters who engage in noisy revelry, and/or they are simply rude. Rude implies that they are either ignorant of good form or indifferent to it. These roisters can operate with intentional discourtesy.

 [2] “You despise all evildoers. May You doom speakers of deception” (Psalms 5:6-7). Although Doeg and Ahithophel engaged in the study of God’s Word, they perverted it to produce evil. Although they studied the minutest details of Torah, they did so with deceptive intentions and selfish gain. They perverted the truth in the Word of God to produce evil through deception and treachery.

[3] “For there is no sincerity in the mouth of any of them” (Psalms 5:10). These were the most dangerous enemies. They outwardly feigned friendship while in their hearts they were bitter implacable foes. These ones pretended to be friends while stabbing David in the back, spiritually speaking. They were not capable of being appeased. or being convicted so that they could be significantly changed.

[4] “Their throat is an open grave” (Psalms 5:10). The enemies of pure worshipers seek to swallow the fruits of other people’s labors: money, creative ideas, witty inventions, revelation about Scripture, anointings, ministries, businesses, etc. They are mammon motivated. Just as the open grave takes in a corpse, it’s their own dead end.

[5] “Their tongue is glib” (Psalms 5:10). The enemies of pure worshipers are slick and smooth talkers and takers. They seem harmless; but are extremely dangerous, especially to the undiscerning. Someone who is glib are marked by ease and fluency in speaking and writing often to the point of being insincere or deceitful, like a glib minister or glib politician. Can you say religious and political Babylon?! They also can be marked with a nonchalant demeanor of ease and informality.

[6] “Declare them guilty, O God!” (Psalms 5:11). Bring the enemies of pure worshipers to justice. Convict them of their guilt and cast them down from their positions of preeminence.

[7] “May they fall short in their schemes” (Psalms 5:11). May the enemies of pure worshipers own plots be the cause of their downfall, as in the case of Haman who prepared a gallow for Mordechai and was hanged upon it himself.

[8] “For they have rebelled against You” (Psalms 5:11). King David clarifies his many entreaties that he makes throughout the Psalms for the punishment of his enemies. It is not for his own honor that he demands punishment for his enemies, but rather David objects to their blatant refusal to accept YHVH’s will.

[9] “But all who take refuge in You will rejoice” (Psalms 5:12). When God Himself topples the wicked, all who trust in Him will rejoice and be glad! Hallelujah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
