…from glory to glory

Morning Glory…


Shabbat Shalom! Safely through another week, and another week closer to Messiah Jesus’ return…glorious thoughts…comforting thoughts in all circumstances…

Blessed be the Lord my Rock, who trains my hands for war, and my fingers for battle—my lovingkindness and my fortress, my high tower and my deliverer, my shield and the One in whom I take refuge…I will sing a new song to You, O God; on a harp of ten strings I will sing praises to You, the One who gives salvation to kings, who delivers David His servant from the deadly sword…Happy are the people who are in such a state; happy are the people whose God is the Lord!…And since we have the same spirit of faith, according to what is written, ‘I believed and therefore I spoke,’ we also believe and therefore speak…Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal…For we walk by faith, not by sight…”

–Psalm 144.1-2,9-10,15…2 Corinthians 4.13,16-18; 5.7

Here is a link to view the passages of this morning’s adventure into timeless glory: Scripture Passages in NKJV

On this link, you may also find a menu from which to choose alternate translations…

A glimpse of the glorious work of God in the lives of those who believe Him…Ruth and Boaz had some temporal matters to settle, but Boaz approached the temporal with vision of what is eternal–he chose to stake his life on the Word of God (Deuteronomy 25.5-10)…Not worrying about whether he would lose his inheritance, he paid the price for his bride; and in so doing, he fathered a son who would become the grandfather of King David…Boaz walked by faith and not by sight; turns out he had perfect vision…

[Cannot say for certainty, but this occurs to me: Perhaps because of his faith,  Boaz’ name is credited as the ancestor of David instead of his relative Elimelech, whose name under the letter of the law would be “raised up” by the kinsman redeemer…]

Take heed that you do not do your charitable deeds before men, to be seen by them…when you do a charitable deed, do not sound a trumpet before you…But when you do a charitable deed, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, that your charitable deed may be in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will Himself reward you openly…And when you pray, you shall not be like the hypocrites...But…when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly.”

–Matthew 6.1a,2a,3-4,5a,6

Rescue me and deliver me from the hand of foreigners, whose mouth speaks lying words, and whose right hand is a right hand of falsehood…

For we know that if our earthly house, this tent, is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed with our habitation which is from heaven, if indeed, having been clothed, we shall not be found naked. For we who are in this tent groan, being burdened, not because we want to be unclothed, but further clothed, that mortality may be swallowed up by life. Now He who has prepared us for this very thing is God, who also has given us the Spirit as a guarantee…

If I forget you, O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget its skill! If I do not remember you, let my tongue cling to the roof of my mouth—if I do not exalt Jerusalem above my chief joy…That our sons may be as plants grown up in their youth; that our daughters may be as pillars, sculptured in palace style; that our barns may be full, supplying all kinds of produce; that our sheep may bring forth thousands and ten thousands in our fields; that our oxen may be well laden; that there be no breaking in or going out; that there be no outcry in our streets.”

–Psalm 137.11; 2 Corinthians 5.1-5Psalm 137.5-6; 12-14

Blessed are those who walk by faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, for their vision is perfect…Pray for those whose vision is myopically hindered by the things which are temporal. And…

 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem…

For the LORD has chosen Zion; He has desired it for His dwelling place: ‘This is My resting place forever…I will also clothe her priests with salvation, and her saints shall shout aloud for joy…”

…Psalm 132.6
