A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . .
A man’s service for the LORD GOD is sincere when he wants no publicity for it. 

 

KNOWN OF GOD      
"O LORD, YOU have examined me and know me." [Psalms (Tehillym) 139. 1 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 

 

The most awesome (frightening, majestic, impressive, imposing, inspiring, convicting) attribute of the ETERNAL ONE is that HE knows everything about us.  The OMNISCIENT CREATOR has searched (penetrated) us and knows (understands) us.  Since ALMIGHTY GOD is both omnipotent (all-powerful) and omniscient (all-knowing), it follows that nothing escapes HIS conscious knowledge about us.  HE observes our ordinary activities and knows our innermost thoughts.  "When I sit down or stand up YOU know it; YOU discern my thoughts from afar." [Psalms (Tehillym) 139. 2 Tanakh, Kethuvim]  "YOU observe my walking and reclining, and are familiar with all my ways." [Psalms (Tehillym) 139. 3 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 

 

The Hebrew word "yada" is translated familiar and suggests that the HIGH & LOFTY LORD actually sees the formation of the words on our tongue before we begin to speak them.  "There is not a word on my tongue but that YOU, O LORD, know it well." [Psalms (Tehillym) 139. 4 Tanakh, Kethuvim]  That means we are transparent to HIM; we cannot deceive the MOST HIGH GOD in any way.  The ALMIGHTY ONE knows what I am going to think; I cannot hide anything from HIM.  The BELOVED CREATOR knows more then we know about ourselves, and those things we won't even admit to ourselves. 

 

Furthermore, the SUPREME LORD GOD OF JACOB is everywhere around each one of us wherever we are or could be. "Where can I escape from YOUR SPIRIT? Where can I flee from YOUR PRESENCE? If I ascend to heaven, YOU are there; if I descend to Sheol, YOU are there too. If I take wing with the dawn to come to rest on the western horizon, even there YOUR hand will be guiding me, YOUR right hand will be holding me fast." [Psalms (Tehillym) 139. 7 - 10 Tanakh, Kethuvim]  There is no escape from the PRESENCE of the ALMIGHTY; HE is wherever we go. 

 

The Apostle Paul once perceived, "For in HIM we live, and move, and have our being." [Acts 17. 28]   This very intimate and complete knowledge about us is what makes salvation of the LOVING LORD OF HOSTS, the GREAT GOD OF ISRAEL such a marvelous matter, "for when we were still without strength, in due time the LORD JESUS died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare die. But GOD demonstrates HIS OWN love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, MESSIAH died for us." [Romans 5. 6 - 8] 

 

How great the KING OF THE UNIVERSE must have loved us to create us in HIS IMAGE; yet even greater love did the LORD GOD OF JACOB show us in making us conscious that we are created in the DIVINE IMAGE. . . then, by HIMSELF, dying to redeem what HE so loved!  Such wonderful, extravagant, amazing love!

 

 

Sha’alu (Pray) for the shalom (Peace) of JerUSAlem and all of Israel!
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
May your ever-growing faith in the LORD Y’SHUA ha'MASHIACH grant you the privilege to witness and experience the marvelous miracle of being delivered from the yoke of slavery to sin and all snares that entangle you to rob you of your integrity as a child of the KING. For the LORD your GOD will save those found worthy from the hands of the wicked and rescue you from the clutches of the violent as you stay rooted and grounded in HIM.
Day 40 of the Omer 

 

Praying for the peace of Jerusalem, is praying for the return of our Messiah and Lord and for the Kingdom of God He is bringing when He comes.  Then God's Will shall be done on earth as it is in Heaven and the world will experience true godly universal peace which is the fruit of Righteousness.

What Each Area of the Site is Meant For: Blogs - This is your personal space. This is where you should post thoughts that are not intended for extensive further discussion. Observations from personal study and events that have occurred in your life belong here. Unless your post ends with questions or makes it apparent that discussion is to follow, it should probably be a blog. As discussed later, blogs are limited to those who hold to historic Christian beliefs. Forums - This is for open discussion relating to the topic posted. Dialogue is encouraged to stay on topic, so if a side conversation begins, open a new discussion. This is where the majority of the activity has taken place so far. Topics should remain general in nature, while in depth discussion on narrow topics should take place in groups. Groups - This is a place to congregate with people who have similar interests and positions in order to have open discussion. The conversation in here is not required to remain on topic, so it is more ready to follow rabbit trails. This is where you should go if you want to gather with a particular kind of theologian. Before initiating a new group, we ask that you consider posting a question in the discussion forum area to see if there is enough interest to justify a separate group. The reason we encourage such action is that, in the event that a group is inactive for 6 months or more, the moderators of Scriptural Studies reserve the right to close down and delete the group due to inactivity. Events - This is available to anyone that wants to post an event that you think the members of Scriptural Studies may be interested in. Contact Denis, Rabbi Del, Rifkah, or Marti for more details on advertising. Our Attitude of conduct: In case you missed them on your way in, take some time to become acquainted with the conduct we expect on this site. You may find our Attidudes on the main forum page. Our purpose at Scripural Studies is that the conversations move in a Gracious way. We define Gracious in the following way: 1) Not closed minded 2) Not self-promoting 3) Not characterized by mass amounts of cut-and-paste proof-texting 4) Not characterized by mass amounts of cut-and-paste from other places 5) Irenic 6) Not slanderous 7) No spamming 8) Perpetual venting bitterness 9) Not confusing or disruptive But in all things you'll be welcome here
