As Arthur was dying, he told Percival to find a lake of still waters (Ps. 23:2) and throw the Stone of Power into the lake predicting this falling- away from the truth and that the people would not accept it from his successor, Percival at first refused saying that the Sword (Truth) that Arthur had drawn from the Stone (Christ) must not be lost to mankind, but on Arthur's reassurance, that one day The King (Christ) would come (in England to His British people) and the Sword would rise again, and he obeyed Arthur and cast it into the lake of still waters (Ps. 23:2).
Matthew 6:6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and WHEN THOU HAST SHUT THY DOOR, pray to thy Father in private (Enoch 56:5; Sura 7:55); and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly. King of kings' Bible - Matthew
This is another one of my favorite Bible verses because it confirms what is written elsewhere in the Bible (Luke 17:21).
The physical is the reverse / opposite of the Spiritual in that the part (Being) within is greater than the whole without (on the outside / physical).
Solomon 6:17 For the very true beginning of her is the desire of discipline; and the care of discipline is love.
Solomon 6 is about Wisdom. The beginning of WISDOM is the desire of discipline.
So often, I have wanted answers, guidance and assistance without first doing my part – active discipline, which really comes first. That means keeping my foot on the neck of my human (as The Lord teaches); and means showing Father proof of that discipline, which means a battle of spirit vs human. And most times, the human-side is kicking and screaming; and the devil voice is clever in convincing reasons to not to stay disciplined, with the ultimate insane thought of "why does it matter?". For the love of God, it matters. And when the spirit wins, clarity comes.
The verse reminds me that I have to do my part.
2 Timothy 3:16 All Scripture [is] given by inspiration of God, and [is] profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
Thanking all who post on this thread, as all are meaningful
The words (from The Lord, they are life).
One verse: 2 Timothy 2:15 Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of Truth.
Reason: Seeing lasting changes encourages steadfastness in studying more. This Scripture reminds us to speak Truth accurately unashamed before all men, dividing and understanding truth, giving appropriate response of Truth by striving to follow our Leaders Examples, Christs.net
His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the Joy of thy Lord.
This has always been dear to my heart as it is hoped to hear this someday from my King of kings and Lord of lords.
For this purpose the Son of God was manifested,
that he might destroy the works of the devil. 1 John 3:8
When reading todays YODA
The Lord shows that all evil is overcome
THEY failed to break Him, no matter what tribulation was thrown His way, man was and is powerless to overtake Him.
And He reminds us to:
Take heart from that, for you must share My tribulations.
And in My conquering Power you walk unharmed today.
My most favorite verse: Luke 18:5 Yet because this widow troubleth me, I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me.
Reason why; this/these Scriptures (Luke 18:1-8) are very dear to my heart because The Lord gave them for reproof and Guidance, to strengthen and give courage to fight evil in high places. Concluding He meant to become Persistent walking unharmed as He demonstrates.
This YoDa below seems fitting.
God at Eventide- When Misunderstood. - November 23
Wait upon Me.
Wait until My strength has filled your Being, and you are no longer weak, petty, "misunderstood."
Rise above any fret as to how others may judge you. Leave Me to explain what I will of you and your actions.
Would you seek to follow a Christ Who had wasted His God-power on fruitless explanations?
So with you. Leave Me to vindicate you, and to be your Advocate, or trust My silence in this as in all else.
Sura 4:133. If it were His Will, He could destroy you, O mankind, and create another race for He hath power this to do.
He is Invincible and can do anything that He wishes, His Plan is Perfect, His Plan succeeds and is succeeding. No matter what people could possibly do, His Will prevails. There is nothing that anyone could do to prevent His Cause, His Creation, or His Will.
