Day Sixty – The LORD Of Hosts; He Is The King

The reading of the prophecy of Jeremiah can be a difficult read; and even difficult to write about; especially if you focus on the judgment part of the prophecy.  Jeremiah lived through much of the fall and destruction of Jerusalem, Judah and Israel.  He also wrote many promises of God. Our Scripture reading today is …

What is the Hope of the Hypocrite?

"Moreover Job continued his parable, and said, God liveth, hath taken away my judgment; and the Almighty, hath vexed my soul; all the while my breath is in me, and the spirit of God is in my nostrils; my lips shall not speak wickedness, nor my tongue utter deceit. God forbid that I should justify you: till …

The Unruly Evil – James 3:5-12

"Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth! And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set …

The Learned, Hearing Servant

My daily reading was Isaiah 46 - 50.  I pray some are following along. "The Lord GOD hath given Me the tongue of the learned, that I should know how to speak a word in season to him that is weary: He wakeneth morning by morning, He wakeneth mine ear to hear as the learned. The …

Knowledge, Understanding, Wisdom; the Fool and Silence

"He that hath knowledge spareth his words: and a man of understanding is of an excellent spirit. Even a fool, when he holdeth his peace, is counted wise: and he that shutteth his lips is esteemed a man of understanding."  Proverbs 17:27-28  (KJB) I will let the commentary of Matthew Henry speak today as well; it …

The Words of My Mouth

The words we speak can be very acidic, eating away at the heart and soul of those we speak so vile of words to.  Someone has said, "The words we speak are like a fired weapon, once launched, it cannot be recalled." The Christian's mouth should be different from the mouths of those who do …

Words of Life and Death

"The name of the LORD is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe. The rich man’s wealth is his strong city, and as an high wall in his own conceit. Before destruction the heart of man is haughty, and before honour is humility. He that answereth a matter before he heareth …

Searched and Known

"O LORD, Thou hast searched me, and known me. Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, Thou understandest my thought afar off. Thou compassest my path and my lying down, and art acquainted with all my ways. For there is not a word in my tongue, but, lo, O LORD, Thou knowest it altogether. Thou …

Deceitful Tongue

"Why boastest thou thyself in mischief, O mighty man? The goodness of God endureth continually. Thy tongue deviseth mischiefs; like a sharp razor, working deceitfully. Thou lovest evil more than good; and lying rather than to speak righteousness. Selah. Thou lovest all devouring words, O thou deceitful tongue. God shall likewise destroy thee for ever, …
