Know Him....? What does it take to ‘know him’? There’s a ton of scripture out there, and more importantly, a lot of people with the phrase: “He knows my heart”. YHVH is our God, He is our Creator. He is the one that “sends rain to the righteous and the unrighteous alike.” Matthew 5:45
I will make them and the places around my hill a blessing, and I will
cause the rain to fall when it should - there will be showers of blessing. 27 The trees in the field will bear their fruit and the soil its produce, and they will be secure in their land. Then they will know that I am YHVH, when I break the bars of their yoke and rescue them from the power of those who turned them into slaves.
Deut 30:11 For this mitzvah which I am giving you today is not too hard for you, it is not beyond your
reach. 12 It isn't in the sky, so that you need to ask, 'Who will go up into the sky for us, bring it to
us and make us hear it, so that we can obey it?' 13 Likewise, it isn't beyond the sea, so that you
need to ask, 'Who will cross the sea for us, bring it to us and make us hear it, so that we can
obey it?' 14 On the contrary, the word is very close to you - in your mouth, even in your heart;
therefore, you can do it!
"When you come to a town or village, look for someone trustworthy and stay with him until you leave. 12 When you enter someone's household, say, `Shalom aleikhem!' 13 If the home deserves it, let your shalom rest on it; if not, let your shalom return to you. 14 But if the people of a house or town will not welcome you or listen to you, leave it and shake its dust from your feet!
Psalm 78:17 Yet they sinned still more against him, rebelling in the wilderness against the Most High; 18 in their hearts they tested God by demanding food that would satisfy their cravings. 19 Yes, they spoke against God by asking, "Can God spread a table in the desert? 20 True, he struck the rock, and water gushed out, until the vadis overflowed; but what about bread? Can he give that? Can he provide meat for his people?" 21 Therefore, when YHVH heard, he was angry; fire blazed up against Ya'akov; his anger mounted against Isra'el;
Make me know your ways, YHVH, teach me your paths. 5 Guide me in your truth, and teach me; for you are the God who saves me, my hope is in you all day long. 6 Remember your compassion and grace, YHVH; for these are ages old.
Matt 13:47 "Once more, the Kingdom of Heaven is like a net thrown into the lake, that caught all kinds of fish. When it was full, the fishermen brought the net up onto the shore, sat down and collected the good fish in baskets, but threw the bad fish away. So it will be at the close of the age -- the angels will go forth and separate the evil people from among the righteous and throw them into the fiery furnace, where they will wail and grind their teeth.
1 Kings 8:34 hear in heaven, forgive the sin of your people Isra'el, and bring them back to the land you gave to their ancestors. 35 "When they sin against you, and in consequence the sky is shut, so that there is no rain; then, if they pray toward this place, acknowledge your name and turn from their sin when you have brought them low; hear in heaven, forgive the sin of your servants and of your people Isra'el - since you keep teaching them the good way by which they should live -
Life. It’s a curve ball most times. We have situations occur, events that stress, and basically just stretch one’s imagination in the great struggle of WHY? did this happen to ME? As I’ve studied Scripture in the past year, I’ve taken notes on concepts that I see recurring over and over and over again. The particular concept we’re focusing on today is “Everything is for
YHVH’s glory”. Or stating in His words: “Then they will know that I am YHVH.”
The festival of Shavu'ot arrived, and the believers all gathered together in one place. Suddenly there came a sound from the sky like the roar of a violent wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. Then they saw what looked like tongues of fire, which separated and came to rest on each one of them. They were all filled with the Ruach HaKodesh and began to talk in different languages, as the Spirit enabled them to speak.
