These offering s are related to the present day practice of offering our tithes to the Lord. David expressed it this way in I Chron. NIV 1 Chronicles Yours, O LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the majesty and the splendor, for everything in heaven and earth is yours. Wealth and honor come from you; you are the ruler of all things. In your hands are strength and power to exalt and give strength to all.
Everything comes from you, and we have given you only what comes from your hand. Curt Courtenay. Post Reply Cancel. Lauro Lambayong,jr. Lectionary Readings for September Inspire a passion for the lost. Discover biblical contentment. He starts with God.
And this is the correct view, because this is what happened. And this is what Jeremiah learned to do -- to sing praises to the Lord. It would be great if we could end the account here. But Jeremiah is a very human being, and so he does as we often do -- he sinks back into even greater despair! He starts to curse the day he was born.
It must be about three in the morning now. Up 'til midnight he had been doing fine, but the last hour or two he has been scrunched over in this cruel position, his feet are hurting, his hands are hurting, his head hurts, his back is raw and bloody, and he cannot scratch or soothe it in any way. So the situation gets to be too much again, and he begins to curse the day he was born.
Have you ever said that? I wish I'd never been born! He does not tell us any more of what went on through the long, long night. On the morrow, when Pashur released Jeremiah from the stocks, Jeremiah said to him, "The Lord does not call your name Pashur, but 'Terror on every side.
That was what he himself had experienced during the long night: "I hear many whispering. Jeremiah says, "God is no longer going to call you Pashur, but Terror on every side", i. They shall fall by the sword of their enemies while you look on. And I will give all Judah into the hand of the king of Babylon; he shall carry them captive to Babylon, and shall slay them with the sword.
Moreover, I will give all the wealth of the city, all its gains, all its prized belongings, and all the treasures of the kings of Judah into the hand of their enemies, who shall plunder them, and seize them, and carry them to Babylon. And you, Pashur, and all who dwell in your house, shall go into captivity; to Babylon you shall go; and there you shall die, and there you will be buried, you and all your friends, to whom you have prophesied falsely.
Now he is as steady as a rock. What happened? Well, we do not know; we can only surmise. But I suggest that sometime through that long dark night, the burning in the bones of the prophet, the word of God, triumphed over the tremblings of his heart.
The Word began to prove itself true. Jeremiah began to think back upon that Word, its power, what it had accomplished in the past. And somewhere faith came to take hold of this struggling, weak, toppling man and strengthen him, so that when Pashur came in the morning he was ready to meet him, look straight in his eye, and tell him the message God had for him.
I thought of a verse in Paul's letter to Timothy as I read this. It seems to gather this up for us beautifully. So even though it may take a while, even though things do not go right at first, do not be shortsighted and blame God, for he will "watch over his word to perform it. Thank you, heavenly Father, for this reminder of your faithfulness to the prophet Jeremiah, and your faithfulness to your promises today. Keep us from trembling in faith. Keep us from charging you with falsehood.
Keep us, Lord, from weakness. This version peaked at 80 in the UK. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Retrieved 25 April Archived from the original on 2 November Book Category.
Beverley Knight. And that it happen in such a way people will be drawn to this place. Now, there are some questions we need to ask and try to answer as we consider this fire that is spoken of in Leviticus.
First of all, what is this fire? The Scripture tells us what this fire is. The fire first appears as Moses sees a bush burning in the desert but its not being consumed.
So, Moses went over to see that bush and he heard a voice. Then, we see Moses leading the people of Israel. The Bible tells us they were lead by a pillar of cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night.
Then we see on top of Mount Sinai the mountain was burning with fire because of the presence of God. And Moses went up and received the Ten Commandments that were written by the finger of God.
Later in the Old Testament we see Elijah. He is calling on God to send down his fire. Remember the confrontation of Elijah and the prophets of Baal. Both will set up an altar with a bull.
